He is somehow able to beat up Bender (2ACV11). With Terry and Lou, he likes to make prank calls to Fry (6ACV16).

    Ipji: Life is good.

    Ipji: Well that's your job, whether you like it or not. And it's my job to make sure you do your job whether I like it or not, which I do, very much!

    Ipji: Oh my various Gods!

    Ipji: So I said, "Your request for a date is most flattering Leela, but I'm afraid I must decline. These office romances never work out. After all, that is how I met my horrible wife."
    Leela: But you never wore a ring, I didn't know you had a wife.
    Ipji: And my wife doesn't know I have a job, I keep my personal and professional life separate.

    Ipji: Oh I am broke. What will I tell my horrible wife?
