Bender is discovered to be sleepwalking and sleep bending, bending everything in sight, like a vital part of the planet express ship, Hermes' ruler, Amy's college javelin, Zoidberg's prized pet Slinky, in which he reacts to by crying and sobbing, and even the Professor. Until Bender can satisfy his pent up lust for bending and overcome his sleepwalking he is forbidden from returning to Planet Express. Bender finds work at a factory where all the workers are on strike. After securing a job Bender is introduced to his co-workers, an attractive fembot; Angelyne and Flexo. Bender falls in love with Angelyne and the two get along fine until he makes a shocking discovery; Flexo and Angelyne are divorced. Naturally Bender perceives Flexo as a threat to his romance and attempts to find out who Angelyne loves by taking her to The Hip Joint posing as Flexo. After a passionate kiss leads to Bender's disguise being foiled, he takes off to the factory to kill Flexo. Unfortunately the Robot Mafia too, want to kill Flexo which they attempt by dropping an unbendable girder on him. Angelyne arrives on the scene too late, but she rushes to crippled Flexo's side professing her love for him. Bender, wanting to make Angelyne happy, decides to bend the girder to save Flexo. After succeeding Bender returns to Planet Express, his bend lust satisfied, but gets irate after being bugged to de-bend the Professor, so he simply bends him 180 degrees much to the dismay of his co-workers.
