Farnsworth suggests using them for slave labour and the Simpson family quickly escape and hide in the Planet Express building. In excange for not being sold into slavery, the Simpsons go on some missions with the Planet Express crew and they turn out to be disastrous.

    Professor: No, comics! Now keep on truckin' back to the underground, mutant!
  • Comic Book Guy: I always knew one day robots would enslave us! Fine, I surrender! But only if I can have a metal slave bikini like Princess Leia's from "Return of the Jedi".
    Url: Aw, man, I don't even have a stomach, and that image makes me nauseous!
  • Ralph Wiggum: The space ship is hugging me!
  • Lisa: Does this sort of thing happen a lot in your line of work?
    Bender: Being totally boned? Oh yeah.
  • Brannigan: Kif, you shrunk my velour top again!
    Kif: Yes, it must have shrunk after your last visit to the Buffet Galaxy!
  • Homer: I don't wanna complain, but your replicator makes really bland food.
    Fry: Homer you've just been printing pictures of food from the internet.
    Homer: Oh.
    Zoidberg: So are you going to finish that?
  • Bender: NOOOOO! An alien is bursting out of my chest! And it's got my last beer!
