The episode is more about Bender and Ben bonding, and Bender turning out to be a doting, supportive father. It’s a little sweeter than usual, and somehow, the attempts to undercut that sweetness just make the relationship even more adorable; a montage of father and son spending time together includes petty theft and bank robbery, and yet seems about as wholesome as the show ever gets. But it works, because it’s fun to see Bender getting emotionally attached to anything. Ben grows up, and wants to be a bending robot just like his dad, but his programming won’t allow it; so Bender allows Farnsworth to replace Ben’s memory card with a bending module, allowing his son to achieve his dreams while sacrificing the boy’s memories of their time together.
