  • Have Bender Binge "All My Circuits" (6s)
  • Have The Professor Binge "All My Circuits" (6s)

Rewards[edit source]

Story[edit | edit source]

Calculon Terrible news! I have contracted amnesia -- the disease that makes you forget everything except that fact that you have amnesia!

Bender That IS terrible! How did it happen?

Calculon [...]

Calculon Let's review the basic property of amnesia, shall we?


Fry So after all those times Calculon's TV character got amnesia, now Calculon has amnesia for real?

Bender Yeah, it sounds fishy to me too. You think he's faking?

Fry Nah, I believe him. Remember, I've had amnesia a couple of times myself, and I'm not a TV character.

Bender Not anymore you're not.


Part 2

Description[edit source]

Calculon deals with his amnesia.

Objectives

Rewards[edit source]

  • 150 Nixonbucks 100 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

Calculon Excuse me, sir. Even though I'm suffering from amnesia, I'm nearly sure we've never met. Am I right?

Kif Yes, but of course I'm familiar with your work.

Calculon Really? Then I must be someone important! A politician? A business executive? A respected scientist?

Calculon Or -- joy of joys -- an actor who pretends to be all of those things and makes more money in one day than you'll see in your whole lifetime?

Kif Yes. That one. [SIGH]


Calculon Humble janitor, how do you keep your sanity in this madness called life?

Scruffy Porn helps.

Calculon Of course! I shall star in a porn film!

Scruffy You already did, early in your career.

Scruffy Won you your only Golden Globe. Mm-hm.


Part 3

Description[edit source]

Professor finds a solution.

Objectives

  • Collect 25 Memory Chips from Space
  • Collect 12 Scripts
  • Place the Wedding Trellis

Rewards[edit source]

  • 300 Nixonbucks 200 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

The Professor I may have found a way to cure your amnesia -- by replacing your damaged memory chips with new ones collected from space.

Calculon Make it so! I'll do anything -- ANYTHING! -- just to be able to recall the children I imagine I have.

The Professor No, you don't have any real children. Your TV character has several dozen, though.

Calculon Then restore my memory -- for the good of those poor fictional fatherless waifs!


Calculon Thanks to your shipment of memory chips, I am slowly recovering my memories. I vaguely recall a wedding.

The Professor That's the TV show again. In real life you're a bachelor, but your character's been married two hundred times.

Calculon One man getting TV-married two hundred times?! I must be the greatest actor ever!


Part 4

Description[edit source]

Calculon is reminded of his acting days.

Objectives

Rewards[edit source]

  • 150 Nixonbucks 100 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

Calculon I'm told that before my amnesia, I was a great actor.

Bender Uh-huh. You were the star of "All My Circuits", my favorite robot soap opera!

Calculon I would imagine I used scripts. Perhaps seeing one would help restore my memory.

Calculon I also imagine that I had people whose job it was to bring me anything I wanted.

Bender I'm going, I'm going.


Calculon There's something odd about these scripts you found. I played a character named Calculon, yet my real name is Calculon.

Bender Yeah, every actor on "All My Circuits" played a character with the same name.

Bender They save a lot of money that way by not having to print up cast lists.


Part 5

Description[edit source]

Calculon tries to recall past events.

Objectives

Rewards[edit source]

  • 300 Nixonbucks 200 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

The Professor This is the strangest case of amnesia I've ever seen, since it's in real life instead of on TV. What's the last thing you remember clearly?

Calculon Someone was about to reveal their terrible secret to me -- when suddenly a box fell on my head.

The Professor Sudden interruption of a terrible secret reveal, eh? I suspect you got amnesia while performing a scene in which you get amnesia!

Calculon My God, what an actor I am!


Calculon Amnesia is truly the cruelest disease. It robs you of everything but the ability to display EMOTION!

Calculon I've just discovered I have a son -- Antonio Calculon Jr.!

Fry He's not your real son. He's a child actor who played Antonio Calculon Jr. on TV.

Calculon But his name in real like IS Antonio Calculon Jr., right?

Fry Now you've got it!


Part 6

Description[edit source]

Calculon runs into Boxy Robot.

Objectives

Rewards[edit source]

  • 150 Nixonbucks 100 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

Calculon You there -- box-shaped robot. You seem familiar. Do I know you?

Boxy Beep beep!!

Calculon Of course -- Boxy Robot, my beloved TV sidekick! It is I, Calculon. If I seem different, it's on account of all the amnesia I'm suffering from.

Boxy Beep beep. Beep!

Calculon Ha! Good old Boxy. Always quick with a punchline no comedy writer could improve upon.


Calculon I've just been to the studio, Boxy! It seems you've been editing yourself into my videos in place of me -- Calculon!

Boxy Beep beep!

Calculon Wrong on both counts! I WOULDN'T have done that same to you, and you WON'T get away with it! You haven't heard the last of...

Calculon Aw, crap, more amnesia.


Part 7

Description[edit source]

Calculon feels sorry for himself.

Objectives

Rewards[edit source]

  • 300 Nixonbucks 200 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

Bender What's up, Calculon? Why aren't you out somewhere being famous and adored?

Calculon I just found out that the studio's replacing me with Boxy Robot!

Bender They can't do that. You're a star! Boxy Robot couldn't possibly replace you!

Bender They'd need some sort of fabulously debonair bending robot for that...


Calculon I don't know, Bender...Perhaps I should just let Boxy take my place and walk sadly into the distance.

Calculon Preferably with the setting sun glinting cinematically off my case...

Bender That's a load of crap! You're telling me the star of "12 Angry Robots" isn't going to fight back?

Calculon I was in "12 Angry Robots"? Did I play the jury foreman?

Bender You played the whole jury!


Part 8

Description[edit source]

Calculon stands up to Boxy Robot.

Objectives

Rewards[edit source]

  • 150 Nixonbucks 100 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

Calculon It's all coming back to me. It wasn't a box that hit me on the head -- it was a robot shaped like a box!

Calculon But which one? WHICH ONE??? Any ideas, Boxy?

Boxy Beep beep beep.

Calculon No, Container Unit 12 would never do a thing like that to me. I saved his life in Vietnam in a movie once. Which can mean only one thing...

Calculon I'm sure I'll think of it in a minute.


Calculon Why, Boxy, why? I stood up for you when you were accused of drug abuse and Satanism. Why have you turned on me?

Boxy Beep beep!!

Calculon Because you were high and the devil made you do it?! I don't think so! You're protecting someone... of course!

Calculon Monique! Dramatic organ chord!


Part 9

Description[edit source]

Monique emerges.

Objectives

Rewards[edit source]

  • 150 Nixonbucks 100 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

Calculon So, Monique -- my beautiful robot co-star and lover...

Monique Hello, Calculon.

Calculon Let me finish. Co-star and lover who seduced Boxy Robot into giving me amnesia and replacing me because you wanted a show of your own!

Monique I'm sorry, Calculon! I only did it because I'm evil! Can I apologize by marrying you? On television?

Calculon This isn't one of those lovers' quarrels you can just patch up with a televised wedding, Monique!


Calculon It's all coming back to me now, Monique. We were at dinner, celebrating my birthday, when you excused yourself.

Calculon You'd hidden Boxy in the ladies' room, and when you returned, you dropped him on my head!

Calculon Why, Monique? Didn't I always show you many different kinds of feelings? What can Boxy give you that I can't?

Monique He makes me laugh!

Calculon Ohhh. Okay.


Part 10

Description[edit source]

Calculon settles the score.

Objectives

  • Have Monique Admire Her Jewelry (1h 0m 0s)
  • Have Boxy Engage Stealth Mode ()
  • Recruit Monique to the Crew

Rewards[edit source]

  • 300 Nixonbucks 200 XP

Story[edit | edit source]

Calculon You win, Monique. I hope you and Boxy have a long and highly-rated marriage. I'll step aside in the most theatrical way possible -- suicide.

Monique Calculon, wait! It was all an act! Boxy and I just wanted to give you a memorable birthday, so we concocted this dramatic masquerade!

Calculon You gave me a concussion, let me wander aimlessly with amnesia for days, and edited Boxy into my old footage as a birthday present?

Calculon You two are the best supporting characters a star could have!

Calculon Minor supporting characters. Cameo roles, really.


Calculon So you see, Bender, it was all a scenario devised by Boxy and Monique to let me experience the drama of real life.

Bender Uh-huh. How'd that work out?

Calculon I learned a lot. Apparently the emotion I've been expressing in my performances look COMPLETELY PHONY!

Calculon I need to go bigger. So I've instructed the studio to start printing my scripts in all-caps.
