Trivia

While Cubert, Dwight and Tinny Tim are stealing Bender's stuff, Bender Calls Fry on the phone, just as Dwight is walking past Fry carrying a safe labeled 'Bender's Loot.' In the next scene, it is revealed that Bender was inside this safe, which means that Bender called Fry from inside the safe as it was being stolen, but, did not mention it to him. See more »
