Alien code: The Ambulance that rushes down the street has Alien Code #1 on the front of it. It's written backwards for rear-view mirrors and it reads "Meat Truck".
Bender's mafia name, 'Blotto', is a joke on the double meaning of his real name. Blotto is a slang term for being drunk, and Bender, in addition to being what he does, is also a term meaning a drunken binge.
Opening theme promotion: SIMULCAST ON CRAZY PEOPLE'S FILLINGS
Fry ties strings to the steering wheel since Leela can't drive, but in the next shot, they are gone.
Response: The strings aren't gone until Leela returns to the wheel, and presumably she had removed them herself.
When Bender's speaking with Tinny Tim at the Oil-Aide stand, you can see "The Masked Unit" standing in the background.
When Bender gets that $50 from the Don-Bot he puts it in his apron. Right before he quits Bender crumples up his apron and throws it on the floor without grabbing the money first.
We see the return of Tinny-Tim, but his crutch is on the other side of his body.
It is revealed Leela did a horrific job with her lipstick, and that it is all over her cheek. Yet when she comes in the room with Nibbler a few seconds earlier, her cheek is clear and the only place where there is lipstick is on her lips!
Bender: So they sent a helpless child to kill me? Well I'm not going out without a fight. (kicks Tim's crutch out from under him)
Tinny Tim: Fine kick, sir! But I'm actually here to deliver your cut from the cigar heist.
Bender: Oh, sweet legal tender! Kid, tell the Donbot I'm quitting organized crime. From now on I'll stick to the regular kind.
Leela (seeing a blurry image that looks like Bender): I think it's Blotto, that gangster I saw when my patch fell off! (her vision clears to reveal the Professor) Professor?! Where were you at 10pm last night?
Farnsworth: Where am I now?
Fry: I'm telling you, Leela was cool, she was in command, and when she kicked people it hurt. It really hurt.
Leela: I've got an idea. Hold still. (She rubs her ropes against Bender's arm) It's about to break. Yes! Yes!
Bender's arm drops off
Bender: Yeah that broke, alright!
Bender: Uh, help! Help!
Fry: You're OK!
Bender: Yes, I am. Having just this minute regained consciousness.
Fry: Leela, we may not have much time left so let's spend all of it reminiscing about Bender. He was like a big computer that ran on magic.
Donbot: Keep it up and I might just get you your own pair of clamps, huh?
Clamps: He's gonna get clamps? Clamps, clamps...
Bender: Uh, hey, Donny, baby, gimme a chance here, huh? Yous guys skedaddle. Let me take care of the doity woik.
Donbot: Hey, I like your attitude. And your latest accent.
Donbot: Alright, now let's Mafia things up a little. Joey, burn down the ship. Clamps, burn down the crew.
Joey: Hey, boss, this here crew list lists a robot on this crew here.
Donbot: Alright. I want you to find him and plug him. Then unplug him.
Donbot: Joey, Clamps, hurry and blindfold them before they see us some more.
Joey: Hey, boss, looks like somebody beat us to it.
Leela: I'll assume that's a joke at my expense.
Bender(british accent): Sorry I'm tardy, old bean. I was just enjoying a rather tasty watercress sandwich.
Donbot: Hey. He's more classy than I realised.
Donbot: Hello, we're the Robot Mafia. The entire Robot Mafia. We're here to steal your cigars.
Leela: You'll never get away with this.
Fry: Unless you let us live. Then you'll get off scot free.
Joey: They're coming straight toward our proximity. Maybe you should give 'em the clamps, Clamps.
Clamps: Gee, you think? You think that maybe I should use these clamps that I use every day at every opportunity? You're a freaking genius, you idiot!
Leela: I'm back at the wheel, Fry. Everything's under control.
Fry: Great, great. The one time I forgot to buy flight insurance!
Leela: Wait! Why do the raised letters that normally say "Turn Master Steering Wheel Company" say "Nibbler"?
Donbot: Their desire to keep living shows me no respect.
Fry: Wow! It's too bad you can't see, Leela, 'cause there's a cool ship out there shooting at somebody.
Donbot: Alright, here's the battle plan: We shoot, they surrender, we go aboard, somebody does some clamping, then we heist the cigars and go home.
Bender: And all without killing anyone. This gang's got some fresh, new ideas. I admire that.
Joey: Oh, we'll kill 'em alright.
Clamps: We got 'em heavily out-clamped. They won't know what clamped 'em!
Joey: Yo! There's our pigeon now. Let's shoot bullets out of our guns.
Donbot: We're heisting a shipment of Zuban cigars.
Bender: Zubans? Those are the finest cigars in the universe. I can stink up a hole maternity ward with one of those things.
Bender: You know the secret of traditional robot cooking? Start with a good, high-quality oil... then eat it.
Bender: I don't feel good. I'm genuinely sick.
Fry: But we're about to take off. We gotta eat our blast-off sundaes.
Bender: I can't move. Oh, I think I'm gonna output.
Fry: OK, you stay in bed. I'll eat yours.
Donbot: Now, since we're committing crimes that may be against the law, I suggest you have an alibi.
Joey: Now, this score ain't gonna be no cake walk in the tea park, alright? There may be some death killing.
Clamps: It's gonna be clamp this, clamp that. Bada-climp, bada-clamp!
Donbot: What d'you think, Blotto? You in?
Bender: It's funny: Until now I always wanted to be a gangster... so the answer's yes.
Bender: How 'bout "Blotto"? It's gritty, it's got street cred. Plus I can keep my monogrammed slippers.
Joey: Ho! Ho! This guy's an ox! He's got oxon-like strength! Hey, he needs a nickname, right? Let's call him Clamps.
Clamps: Clamps? That's my name, you numbskull! Don't make me clamp you one!
Donbot: Nice job, Bender. You passed the test. You wanna join me, Clamps and Joey Mouse Pad at our, uh, social club tomorrow night?
Bender: Uh, I'd rather plan some felonies.
Donbot: Oh. Then we should meet at our Mafia crime headquarters.
URL: He's clean. Smells nice too.
Smitty: Better than me?
URL: Aw, yeah.
Smitty: Seen any suspicious activity?
URL: Nope. But check out today's Marmaduke. Solid!
Bender: That's some fine oil-ade, son. We could use a man like you in the Robot Mafia, which I'm sorta in.
Tinny Tim: You flatter me, kind goon. But I'm only programmed to sell oil-ade and write in cute backwards letters like on the sign here.
Donbot: Just take this disk over to the pool hall and give it to Sammy "The Mechanical Bull" Gravano. And watch out for the cops.
Bender: That's just what my mom used to tell me.
Donbot: We're gonna try you out with a little delivery job. It's for a, uh, private lottery that we run.
Bender: Wow, you guys run numbers?
Clamps: Well, nothing fancy, y'know. Ones and zeros mostly.
Bender: Wow! Thanks.
Donbot: Hey, you earned that 50 bucks.
Bender: You gave me a twenty.
Donbot: Say, you wanna work for me as a hired goon?
Bender: Are you kidding? I've always wanted to break into gooning!
Donbot: Hey! You think this computes over here? Where's all my change? I gave you a hundred.
Bender: No, you gave me a fifty.
Donbot: Oh, no I didn't.
Bender: Yeah, you did.
Clamps: Hey, you tryin' to steal from the Donbot?
Bender: I'm tryin' but he's not makin' it easy.
Clamps: So I finally get this guy a pair of cement shoes which he likes 'cause they're lighter than his lead ones.
Bender: Mind your own business and get out!
Donbot: Huh. I like this guy's lack of style.
Donbot: You call this a table? You call this a table? I wouldn't hit a guy over the head with this table.
Bender: Hey, who are they?
Elzar: Let's just say they're very good customers and I'm not answering anymore questions.
Bender: Are they the Robot Mafia?
Bender: Well, I'm off to work at the restaurant. One of you will have to fill in for me while I'm gone.
Farnsworth: Better yet, I'll build someone to fill in for you. Some kind of gamma-powered mechanical monster, with freeway on-ramps for arms and a heart as black as coal...
Bender: Well, if that new guy can't handle things, gimme a call.
Farnsworth: You look beautiful. Incidentally, my favourite artist is Picasso.
Bender: So, how 'bout I work part-time at the restaurant to pay off our debt?
Elzar: I don't know. I usually hire people who are a little less unbearable.
Hermes: Oh, Bender's a model employee.
Amy: He's so polite.
Leela: And hard-working.
Fry: He's made of candy.
Bender: Hey, wait a second. I've got the perfect solution.
Zoidberg: Listen to the smart robot.
Bender: I love cooking and Elzar's ass loves getting kissed, right?
Elzar: No question.
Smitty: The old dine-and-dash, huh? My daddy owned a restaurant and it's punks like you who kept it from going regional. That's why I became a cop.
URL: Now it's payback time. Aw, yeah!
Zoidberg: Please don't hit me. I'm brittle!
Smitty: He's making a break for it. Get him!
Fry: No! No! I was just picking my nose.
Smitty: He's picking his nose. Get him!
Amy: A bill?
Leela: You're charging us? After you blinded me?
Elzar: Hey, I made you a nice meal. This ain't a charity.
Farnsworth: Holy Zombie Jesus!
Hermes: We don't have that kind of money. Especially not Zoidberg.
Zoidberg: They took away my credit card.
Farnsworth: Oh, my. That steamed carrot was a bit spicy for me.
Zoidberg: The king crab is to die for. Look! A tiny edible crown.
Amy: What's it made of?
Hermes: It's the biggest Jamaican platter I've ever seen. Jerk chicken, jerk beef, jerk pork. Is there any meat this man can't jerk?
Bender: It's Elzar again! Oh, my God, I'm so excited, I wish I could wet my pants!
Leela: I just have to wear this stupid eye patch. Does it look stupid?
Fry: No! In fact, it looks so nice I think I might get one too.
Doctor: Not as right that time. It looks like you might have some mild corneal irritation.
Zoidberg: Nice try, little boy. You may have your textbook knowledge and your real diploma but I have more skill in my little claw than you have in your whole carapace!
Zoidberg: I don't like the looks of this doctor. I bet I've lost more patients than he's even treated.
Leela: Bender, please try to be a little quieter.
Bender: No, you shut up.
Announcer: And now, here he is: Chef, restaurateur, author of Cooking Slugs For Dinner and Cooking Dinner For Slugs... Elzar!
Bender: Wow! I'm finally gonna see my favourite chef, TV's Elzar. Oh this is the greatest nanosecond of my life. No, this one is- No, this one. Wait... that one was slightly worse. Ah, so far, so good on this one.
Fry: Maybe someday I'll tell you what really happened.
Bender: And maybe someday I won't listen.
Robot: Please Donbot, look in your mercy file!
Donbot: File not found.
Bender: What's the matter, officers? Was I speeding?
Human Cop: We'll find out as we perform this illegal search.
As was the case with the previous episode, the Professor's line "Holy Zombie Jesus!" was censored when aired on Adult Swim but restored for Comedy Central.
First appearance of Don-Bot, Clamps and Joey Mousepad.
Hermes: Where in Legoland is Leela?
Legoland is a theme park based on the popular children's toy, Lego. There are currently four theme parks in England, Denmark, Germany and the USA.
The console above the bed Leela is on when she is being examined looks like the vital signs monitor used in Star Trek: The Original Series. In Star Trek, they are also placed above the beds.
Title Gag: SIMULCAST ON CRAZY PEOPLE'S FILLINGS
This could be a possible reference to a claim made by Lucille Ball on The Dick Cavett Show that she had picked up radio signals on her tooth fillings.
The ambulance takes Leela to Taco Bellevue Hospital, which uses the Taco Bell logo on its sign. Leela is carried into the ER past a patient who is talking to an alien doctor that looks like the Taco Bell Chihuahua with an antenna growing out of the top of its head.
Elzar's cooking show (and in fact his character) are references to Emeril Lagasse and Emeril Live, a cooking show on the Food Network.
Bender's scheme of having a tape player play a loop of a sick message when someone comes to his door was done in the John Hughes film.
Visual: Policemen's Batons
The Policemen's batons look like lightsabers from Star Wars.
The episode has several references to the 1972 film The Godfather.
Title: Bender Gets Made (a.k.a. Bendfellas)
The Bendfellas title is a quick reference to the 1990 movie Goodfellas.
