The suicide booth is phone booth like machine standing on most corners in New New York. The suicide booth is used for a quick, efficient way of committing suicide. While some suicide booths are purely mechanical, others seem to be robots, for example Lynn.


The suicide booths have been in use at least since 2008, when the Stop 'n Drop brand of suicide booths was introduced. The use of suicide costs 25¢, and probably has not changed in a thousand years.

The booth is controlled by a voice recognition feature, however it is apparently still in large development, often mistaking phrases such as "no" for "yes". The booth allows for two primary forms of killing, "quick and painless", or "slow and horrible", but it is also possible to describe your own method to the machine. The machine will even offer special offers for its customers, such as getting your eyes scooped out with a melon baller for an additional 10 dollars.

The machine uses various items to kill you in the most horrible fashion, afterwards people's bodies can be shipped to their loved ones for an additional fee, for example by the company DeadEx. The machine also dispenses a receipt, that is generally never collected by the user.

Suicide booths and twentieth-century phone booths are often confused, such as at Past-O-Rama, where Bender is so bored that he wants to use a "suicide booth" he finds, only to be told it is in fact a phone booth. Bender again mistakes a phone booth for a suicide booth when he is teleported back in time, and, after failing to kill Fry, attempts to use it for suicide. Ironically; in "Lethal Inspection" after learning that he is mortal, Bender enters a booth, Hermes thinks it is a suicide booth, but it is actually a phone booth, a "new invention".

Some, if not all, suicide booths also seem to be conscious robots. The only one seen to have its own emotions and choices, is Lynn, who murdered Bender inside her in 3011 (6ACV19).

Additional Info


  • The voice recognition feature of the Suicide Booth most probably makes fun of similar modern Intelligent Network automated systems and their inferior quality.
  • Moore Action Collectibles released a Bender toy, featuring a suicide booth, in 2001.
  • In the pilot, the only options for "Mode of Death" were "Quick and Painless" or "Slow and Horrible". Yet in two movies, Bender selects "electrocution, side order of poison" and "clumsy bludgeoning".
