By Rush

Scene: Mutant Church. The remaining mutants who pray are all tied up with blue laser rope, Leela and Bender who are crying are tied up together near the steps of the altar where Sally has the bomb attached to her chest and she's tied up onto the warhead .

Bomb: '2 minutes to detonation.

Bender: (crying) 'Well folks, it's been nice knowing you all, but I'm afraid, this is thee end end.

Leela: (crying) 'I wish I could start again, and not waste my life thinking about do I, or do I not love Fry, because I should of loved Fry for who he is, and for nothing else.

Bender: (crying) 'I know, I wish it was me who went into the black-hole instead of Countess.

Leela: (crying) 'Bender, you've been a great friend these last few hours, and I treasure every second of it.

Bender: (crying) 'Well, I do too. I hope we can see other again when we're dead.

Leela: (crying) 'I hope the after life has a place for robots.

[There is a flash of light, and a U-J-Bender appears with a communicator on his right wrist standing up before the altar. Everyone gasps.]

Leela: (crying) 'Another Bender?

Bender: (hopefully) 'I can't believe it! (shouting) It's a "universe jumping Bender" all is not lost. Quickly save us! Disarm the bomb!

U-J-Bender: 'You got it! [He takes out a tweezer from his chest cabinet and attempts to disarm the bomb.] Ahh, which wire?

[Everyone screams.]

Bomb: '1 minute to detonation.

Bender: (shouting) ''Oh, your God! You don't know how to disarm bombs, don't ya?

U-J-Bender: 'No, how am I suppose to know? I was never programmed to be a bomb. Maybe I could do the good ole "Bender Charm" on her?!

[Everyone screams.]

Bomb: '30 seconds to detonation.

[Everyone screams again.]

Leela: (shouting) 'No, we don't have time for that! Just cut the blue wire!

Bender: (shouting) 'No, cut the red wire!

Leela: (shouting) 'No, cut the grey wire.

Bender: (shouting) 'No, cut the white wire!

Mutants: (shouting) 'Cut any of them! Just try one.

U-J-Bender: 'Okay, [He points at random wires.] Eeny meeny miny moe, catch a Human male by the sausage ink, eeny meeny miny moe, catch a Human female by the ponytail--

Bomb: '20 seconds to detonation.

U-J-Bender: 'Eeny meeny miny moe, catch a Manbot by the rotor --

Bender: (shouting) 'Oh, great! My alternate parallel self is a complete perverted moron, and we're all gonna die!

Leela: (shouting) 'I'll see you again my parents and Fry!

Bender: (shouting) 'Good bye my banjo!

[Oil dribbles down U-J-Bender's forehead, his door pops off and his antenna explodes from stress.]

U-J-Bender: 'Eeny meeny miny moe--

Bomb: 'Ten, nine, eight, seven , five , four, three--

U-J-Bender: Oh there's the off switch.

Bomb: 'One, ze--[Bender flicks the off switch.] Detonation canceled! Shutting down. Have a nice day.

[Everyone cheers.]

Leela: (shouting) 'That was too close!

Bender: (shouting) 'Ha-ah! We're gonna live!

Sally: (shouting/ crying) ' I'm not going to die!

Bender: (shouting) 'Now, please...yes I said please...untie us! So that ones that are untied can untie others, and them others can untie others, and so forth.

U-J-Bender: 'You got it!

[U-J-Bender aims his communicator on the ropes Leela is tired to.]

Leela: (shouting) 'No, wait!

[U-J-Bender fries a laser from his communicator, it bounces off Leela's ropes, and randomly ricochets around the room hitting into other ropes, until it finally explodes like a grenade in midair, barely above and out of range of Leela and Bender.]

Leela: (shouting) 'What the Hell, do think you're were doing? Lasers bounce off other lasers, not know that?

U-J-Bender: (quietly) 'Sorry.

Leela: 'And, that's why I didn't use mine!

[U-J-Bender unties some mutants who untie other mutants, until everyone is untied, even Bender, and Leela, who carries Sally, who is crying loudly in her arms, and she now no longer has the bomb attached to her chest. Leela and Sally are the first to walk out the main doors. Raoul now stands before the altar where U-J-Bender leans his back against the warhead.]

Raoul: 'Thank you, Bender. We will never forget what you did for us in are "Universe X4G-A" , for your noble good deeds, you shall be written and recorded into history.

U-J-Bender: 'Yeah, whatever, thank you. Now where's my reward and mone--

[U-J-Bender disappears with a flash of light.]
