Fry is such a slob that he is forced to move out of the Planet Express offices. Bender's apartment is too cramped for the both of them, so they look for a new place to live.

Hey baby, you wanna go kill all humans?
Great episode with a full episode premise and character development. only 81 reviews for this is pathetic.
i saw this years ago and the whole sober bender joke gave me tears and a sore stomach from laughter..

This was an awesome episode! Missed it first time around. Thank god for the DVDs! The episode is great and so is the commentary. Definitely one of the most underrated episodes IMHO.

The best part was the very end.

FanTAStic. Sweet without going out of character with Bender and Fry or losing the sharp humor. And as a college student in New York and a permanent address in New Jersey, I fully sympathize with the difficulty of finding an apartment "remotely livable."
Just one question: How is Fry still living there without a bathroom? Did they put one in?

I don't think there's anything wrong with having a more "down to Earth" episode. What's especially good is the way that Bender's character is developed in this episode and the pattern that starts here of him getting 'sober' everytime he feels rejected.

BTW, I'm also English and am none the wiser about what New Jersey is like, but that joke made me laugh anyway. I like jokes about places that might actually offend some people. ;)

The only real complaint I have with this episode is that the dialogue feels a little stilted and a few of the character drawings are a bit crummy (more so than the previous two episodes). Fortunately, neither of these traits become a regular habit.

"I hate the people who love me, and they hate me!"

Having recently discovered the joy that is Futurama (I just got thawed out) via DVD Year One... this ep is one of the best I've seen. Even the throwaway jokes - Bender and Fry looking at the Esher apartment; "i don't know if we wanna pay for an extra dimension we're not gonna use" - were sharp and on the money. The characters were pitch-perfect.

Bender just rocks!!

The Title is an allusion at Stanislaw Lem's "I, Robot"

Another great episode. I like the adventures Bender and Fry go through to get a big enough apartment. Bender had some great quotes

It has a good level, and keeps the good work. Very funny, just some minor details that gave it a minus one star
