No. 7 - “Lethal Inspection” (Season 6, Episode 6)
“Futurama” is so good, they can even tell a story about a robot and a bureaucrat, two beings rarely associated with feelings, and make it touching. After explaining to the human members of the Planet Express how awesome it is to be a robot because he can never technically die, Bender realizes that the inspector in charge of checking him for defects when he was created, Inspector #5, approved him regardless of the fact that he was manufactured without a backup system. In layman’s terms, he is mortal after all. So Bender, with the assistance of Planet Express’ accountant and bureaucrat grade 36, Hermes, sets out on a mission to find Inspector #5 and make him pay for his misdeed. Once it is discovered that Bender is a defective robot, he is hunted by the authorities to be terminated. On the run, the two eventually locate Inspector #5’s home, only to discover it abandoned. But Hermes is able to hack Inspector #5’s computer just in time to call off the hunt for Bender. This is, it is revealed, because Hermes was actually Inspector #5, and approved Bender when he was first created so he would not be disposed of and could live a full life. Bender walks away none the wiser, but with a much better outlook on being mortal, realizing you must live life to its fullest. And Hermes walks away knowing he did the right thing.
