Recap / Futurama S 7 E 21 Assie Come Home

Go To

After a delivery to Peoples Alpha, a gangster planet, Bender is reduced to his eyes and mouth. Now he must search the universe for his missing body parts.


  • Backwards-Firing Gun: When making a delivery Leela has Bender bend the barrels of all the guns leading to all the gang members killing themselves.
  • Bring My Brown Pants: When Fry and Leela are being held at gunpoint by the blips, Fry mentions a time they guessed what would happen if this situation happened, Leela told him he'd probably soil himself. He implies he did just that but Leela interrupts him.

  • Meet My Good Friends "Lefty" and "Righty": Bender names his hands Gropey and Cheaty.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Leela refuses to arm criminals, so she has Bender sabotage the guns they're delivering. The guns turn out to be a peace offering, so when the receivers learn of the sabotage, violence erupts once more, and both gangs end up dead.
  • Soundtrack Dissonance: Bender's reunion with his ass-plate at the end (after it abandons its lighthouse duty) is accompanied by a heartwarming orchestral piece with fireworks in the background...which continues playing as we cut back and see all the ships crashing around the now-defunct lighthouse, blowing up in a manner similar to fireworks.
  • Trashcan Bonfire: There's a couple of aliens huddled around a burning trashcan, which itself is a robot warming itself to another Trashcan Bonfire.

  • Twitchy Eye: Bender does this when Fry didn't know Bender had an ass, despite his catchphrase, "Bite my shiny metal ass!".
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Bender’s legs are used as transplants to finally cure Timny Tim’s limp… But Bender comes to steal them back, along with the wooden board he had to use as a substitute.

How well does it match the trope?
