Bender gets jealous and trys to get Frys attention in several different ways like getting a robot dog. When they are about to bring the dog back to life Bender runs in and throws the dog into lava. When he sees how much Fry loved the dog he jumps in the lava to go get it. He barely makes it out alive and when he does he has the dog. They are about to bring it back to life when Fry notices that the dog survived much longer then he thought. He decided to not bring it back to life because he thought the dog wouldn't remember him.
