  • Episode Description
  • A freak accident at a Globicide-owned amusement park leaves Bob unable to use his mouth. Out of compassion (and at the advice of their lawyers), the people at Globicide build him a robotic suit with limbs that he can use to perform his duties. The now whole Bob gets an inflated ego and quits his job, but lands a new job as a lifeguard on the beach -- with a silicone-filled co-worker named Dusty who affectionately calls him Robbie. Meanwhile, Beth counts down the days to her upcoming birthday.moreless
