can anybody remember what "god" said to Bender in Futurama when he got lost in space. something about no one being able to tell if you did anything right? i think that might be relevent here.--MONITOR613 22:39, 30 May 2007 (UTC)

I do not know offhand, but wheneve I am searching for quotes, I always check IMDb first, and if it's not there, I check to see if wikia has a wiki and ask/search there!--WatchTVEatDonutDrinkBeer 22:54, 30 May 2007 (UTC)
from: IMDb:

[Bender has stumbled upon God while drifting through space]
Bender: I was God once.
God: Yes, I saw. You were doing well until everyone died.

Bender: Fat chance! You can't count on God for jack. He pretty much told me so himself. Now come on. If we don't save those monks, no one will!

[He takes off his parachute and starts back up the mountain.]

[Pullback: "God" chuckles to himself.]

"God": When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all. --El Payo 23:01, 30 May 2007 (UTC)


Bender: Oh, my God. Are you God?

"God": Possible. I do feel compassion for all living things, my good chum.

Bender: But why would God think in binary? Unless ... you're not God, but the remains of a computerised space probe that collided with God.

"God": That seems probable.



[Scene: Bender is still crying. He hears a beeping and looks up.]

Bender: Hey! That galaxy's signalling in binary. I gotta signal back. But I only know enough binary to ask where the bathroom is. (shouting) You speak English?

Galaxy: I do now.

[It pulls Bender towards it.]

Bender: What are you? Some kind of galactic computer?

Galaxy: Possible. I am user friendly, my good chum.

Bender: Who built you?

Galaxy: I have always been.

Bender: Oh, my God. Are you God?

"God": Possible. I do feel compassion for all living things, my good chum.

Bender: But why would God think in binary? Unless ... you're not God, but the remains of a computerised space probe that collided with God.

"God": That seems probable.

[Scene: Bender talks to "God".]

Bender: So, do you know what I'm gonna do before I do it?

"God": Yes.

Bender: What if I do something different?

"God": Then I don't know that.

Bender: Cool! Cool! I bet a lot of people pray to you, huh?

"God": Yes. But there are so many asking so much. After a while, you just sorta tune it out.

Bender: Y'know, I was God once.

"God": Yes, I saw. You were doing well until everyone died.

Bender: It was awful. I tried helping them, I tried not helping them but in the end I couldn't do them any good. Do you think what I did was wrong?

"God": Right and wrong are just words. What matters is what you do.

Bender: Yeah I know, that's why I asked if what I did-- Forget it.

"God": Bender, being God isn't easy. If you do too much, people get dependent on you. And if you do nothing, they lose hope. You have to use a light touch like a safecracker or a pickpocket.

Bender: Or a guy who burns down the bar for the insurance money.

"God": Yes, if you make it look like an electrical thing. When you do things right, people won't be sure you've done anything at all.

Bender: Does that mean you wouldn't send me back to Earth even if I prayed to you?

"God": Earth? Which way is that?

[Bender looks around.]

Bender: (sadly) I don't know.

Well, it seems i totally misinterpreted the quote when i first heard it, cause it really doesn't seem to fit. thanks anyway for everyone who went through the trouble to find this for me. --MONITOR613 17:25, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
