Futurama: Love and Rocket

Love is in the air when Bender finds himself involved in a shipboard romance....with the ship. When the Professor upgrades the Planet Express spaceship's software with a sexy female voice (guest star Sigourney Weaver), Bender falls hopelessly in love. But when the ship discovers that Bender is unfaithful, she charts a course for self-destruction, and it's up to Fry and Leela to save the day.

Cultural References
The episode references 2001: A Sapce Odyssey heavily. The ship's red eye is identical to the Hall 9000 Computer's in the movie. Bender and the ship sing a song that HAL sings when he is being shutdown, and the way Leela shuts down the ship is identical to HAL's shutting down.
