During a Beasty Boys concert, Bender runs into a high school buddy, Fender. Fender invites him to a party, which turns out to be robots getting high off of electricity, or "jacking on". After one try, Bender is hooked. On a trip back from Sicily 8, the crew runs into an electrical disturbance. Bender sabotages the ship and it flies right into the field, allowing Bender to get stoned and Fry and Leela nearly get killed. Realizing what he has become, he decides to join Robotolgy, a robot religion. It soon becomes apparent the crew prefers the old Bender. To get him back to normal, they fake a delivery to Atlantic City and begin tempting Bender. Eventually, Bender gives in, and is kidnapped that night at a hotel. He wakes up with Beelzebot, the robot devil. He's in Robot Hell. The next morning, Fry and Leela use Nibbler to track Bender down to a carnival. They find the entrance to hell in a broken down ride. A trap door opens beneath them, sending them down a slide. Beelzebot gives Bender several ironic punishments in an up-tempo musical number. Fry and Leela eventually catch up and Beelzebot says if he is bested in a fiddle contest, they win Benders soul. They lose, but manage to escape anyway.
