A gypsy robot tells Bender that he's been turned into a were-car, and he's destined to turn into a vicious ancient car every night at midnight and eventually kill his best friend unless he hunts down and kills the original were-car. Fry fears for his life, being Bender's best friend, and is insulted when were-Bender goes after Leela the next night.
