In the episode "Bender Gets Made," also known as "Bendfellas," the Planet Express crew sit in the guest audience during a cooking show hosted by Bender's hero, Elzar. Bender blasts Leela in the eye with a spice weasel and she gets temporarily blinded as a result. In order to make it up to them, Elzar offers to cook them a meal at his restaurant. However, he doesn't end up paying the huge bill and they get arrested. Bender works off his debt and ends up meeting some members of the Robot Mafia: the Don-bot, Clamps, and Joey Mousepad. The Don-bot hires Bender to help them steal a cargo of cigars, but it ends up being on the Planet Express ship. Leela and Fry get tied up and the Don-bot orders his men to burn down the ship.
