Name[edit]

After watching the episode several more times, I'm almost positive I'm hearing his name as "Basil" not "Bassor". I guess the DVDs with their subtitles will prove for sure but in the meantime what does everyone think? --Zedderick 12:27, 23 August 2010 (CEST)

Well, we may also want to consider what the possible allusion is. I'll admit, that 'Bassor' is not a name I've heard before. And no one on Wikipedia seems to be going by that name. So for 'Bassor' to make sense, it will have to be a reference to something. Though, for the light of me, I cannot figure out what. --Sviptalk 12:30, 23 August 2010 (CEST)
I heard "Basil" too.Yach 13:16, 23 August 2010 (CEST)

Looking at the history, it appears to be created by an IP (this being the original version), who cannot spell Bender's name. I'm going with... it's probably Basil. --Sviptalk 13:18, 23 August 2010 (CEST)

I was the one who called him Bassor in the Benda article, and whoever created this probably went by my link, so it's my fault. I heard Bassor and decided to use it until someone else realised another name, assuming it's just a name I hadn't heard elsewhere. Basil didn't even cross my mind. Aki 17:20, 23 August 2010 (CEST)
