After the price of titanium skyrockets, Bender pawns his titanium-rich body. Now nothing more than a head, Bender begins to live glamorously until he meets the head of former president Richard Nixon, who tells him that life as a head is actually depressing. Bender decides to buy his body back, only to find it has already been bought by Nixon so that he may participate in the current election race for President of Earth. Fry, Leela, and Bender confront Nixon over Bender's body, and Nixon rants about his devious future plans for Earth, which Bender records and uses to blackmail Nixon into giving his body back. The three believe they have defeated Nixon, but because Leela forgot to vote, Nixon wins by a single vote thanks to acquiring a new, giant war robot's body.
