I wasn't actually expecting too much from this one, so I was pleasantly surprised. There were downright hilarious part, and Flexo, whom I found irritating once, is someone I now like.

Angeline: Flexo, are you ok?
Flexo: Yeah! Never better! Nah, I'm yanking your chain, I'm dying.

How the fug wankles is this episode rated at a 69%? This is one incredibly funny episode, Zoidberg's slinky, Professor's new outlook on life, return of the Robot Mafia AND Flexo! And Bender does actually show emotion.

Great episode.

I suspect a lot of the slagging off of this episode is down to the plot. Let's face it, Bender falling in a love with a fembot is not a trip to a new planet or a battle to save the world: it's another one of those 'down-to-earth' character stories, which a lot of people seem to hate. Lighten up people! Stories like this give the characters more depth. If you want a joke a second, watch The Simpsons.

Besides, this episode certainly wasn't devoid in comedy, as the Professor's bending showed. The part where Bender jammed the wheel with a stick, violently hurling them into a pond was hillarious, as was the Professor's general dialogue in the ep, including the overlooked scene where he brags about his new relationship:
"Some say I'm robbing the cradle, but I say she's robbing the grave!"
And let's not forget Zoidberg and his "cuddly pet slinky!" Can anyone honestly say they knew his slinky was gonna burst into flames?

As for the main plot, I agree, it's not hillarious but I still found it pretty engaging, especially the way Bender thought he was being really clever pretending to be Flexo (notice on the phone that he actually says "This is Flexo!" in a different voice. XD) and ended up just confusing himself in the end. And it didn't end on a particularly sappy note either ("So Angeline and Flexo had sex right there on the factory floor?") so it wasn't exactly a soppy love story.

As I said before, maybe it's not exactly packed to the gills with jokes, but it's a nice little story nonetheless and certainly should be bending more towards the higher percentages than it is!

Not Great. The plot involved re-introducing old characters (flexo)to a very dull plot.

HOW THE HECK CAN YOU GIVE A N Y EPISODE '69'%?!? Bender is the best character in the show, and it was a really good episode and very nicely made, SO DON'T DIS ANY EPISODE, i'm still trying to get over why they cancelled it in the first place!

Just watched it on the DVD, and this episode has the funniest first act.

Also, there is an error in the quiz:
"Did you know you have a dime up your nose?"
"I wish. It's only a nickel."
