Morbo will now introduce tonight's candidates Hello Morbo, how's the family? Nixon's pro-war and pro-family. Great, first he steals my body, now he's touchin' my stuff! My god, I could rule the universe! All hail our gargantuan, cyborg president. May death come quickly to his enemies. I have all the money!! Compare your lives to mine and then kill yourselves!
The problem with both parties is they always want to give your tax dollars to the less fortunate. The less fortunate get all the breaks!
Did you get a haircut? I sold my body. Oh, Bender, I've been down that road. I know it's glamorous and the parties are great, but you'll end up spending every dollar you make on jewelry and skintight pants. It's time for someone who has the courage to stand up and say, I'm against those things that everybody hates! Now, I respect my opponent. I think he's a good man. I agree with everything he just said! You're entering the vicinity of an area adjacent to a location.
The kind of place where there might be a monster or some kind of weird mirror. These are just examples. It could also be something much better. Prepare to enter The Scary Door. As per your request, please find enclosed the last man on earth. I can read books for all eternity. Wait, my eyes aren't that bad. I can still read the large print books.
It's not f-- Well, lucky I know how to read Braille. There's a political debate on! Quick, change the channel! Hey, that's what Fry said when we turned on the debate. Leela, I got a plan. I got a better plan.
That I'd like to see! Listen, you filthy crab! They came in last at the Olympics, then retired to promote alcoholic beverages. A true inspiration for the children. Dear God, they'll be killed on our doorstep! And there's no trash pickup until January 3rd.

Lets face it, comedy's a dead art form. Ha ha ha, that's funny. This snow is beautiful. I'm glad global warming never happened. But thank God nuclear winter canceled it out. I feel like a rat. Here I am whining like a pig while all along Leela is as lonely as a frog. Excuse me, sir, you're snowboarding off the trail.
Lick my frozen metal ass! Please let us live! We'll put out milk and cookies for you! You dare bribe Santa!? I'm going to shove coal so far up your stocking you'll be coughing up diamonds! It really puts you in the Christmas mood.
Oh, you mean "Xmas"! You must be using an archaic pronunciation, like when you say "ask" instead of "axe". Although, I could get lizards for the same price. Girls like swarms of lizards, right? He's in great danger! I'm telling you why! Because Santa Claus is coming to town!
You have all been very naughty! This is for you. Farnsworth takes off his lab coat, exposing himself again. Look at you guys. No offence, Fry, but you've become a fat sack of crap. And Bender, your beer belly is so big your door won't even close. And that doesn't even make sense. I love the future! Uh, Fry, you're in the women's steam room. Those poor 20th century women. We - by which I mean you - will have to rush him to his ancient home world, which will soon erupt in an orgy of invertebrate sex.
His Leela is dead, but he is happy with a copy? However whilst The Late Philip J Fry may spoil later episodes somewhat this way it has a far worse effect on previous episodes. Its sad now whenever you watch previous episodes that are Fry and Leela heavy such as The Sting a fave of mine as you now know that Fry and Leela ultimately had an unhappy ending.
The Leela from that episode ended up alone. Aside from the fact that that is quite creepy. Not that I liked them much anyway, but still its quite creepy watching them and thinking that Leela and Cubert will end up having sex with one another! Its very sad to see Leela end up with a horrible guy who mistreats her, cheats on her with her friend and then dumps her, divorces her and takes half of her well earned money.
It also at the same time ruins other characters too. Amy is made into a irredeemable bitch. She stabs her friend in the back and has an affair with her husband. Whilst Amy may have been mean to Leela in the past this I feel was a step too far and again makes you hate Amy when you watch previous episodes from season as you think she is going to end up stabbing Leela in the back, stealing her husband and run off with her money.
Also Zoidberg is given quite an unhappy ending too as he is fired and completely forgotten about by the rest of the crew. I think this was also a bit too far as even though the others were meant to mistreat him it was always hinted that they cared for him underneath. For all of the main characters from the first 5 seasons to have such sad endings is terrible for me.
Particularly when you see how nice things could have worked out for them in series 7. Not until the tenth broadcast season does their romantic relationship actually begin a discernible trajectory, and of course this trajectory leads to them living happily ever after, and then, at the end of their happy lives together, even deciding to go again with the aid of a time-travel device.
Beginnings Leela's first response to Fry is indifference. She refers to him as "Just a guy from the Stupid Ages. Just before he meets her, he finds that he likes how she looks from behind. His lust is tempered somewhat when she turns around, revealing that she is a cyclops. It returns quickly, as he soon gets used to her.
They begin to form an emotional bond from the very beginning, finding that they have in common the fact that they're both alone in the world: Leela because she grew up as a cyclops-orphan, and Fry because all of his people from the 20th century are gone. The two remain fairly constant friends throughout the series, Leela mostly uninterested in romantic possibilities, and Fry occasionally realizing that he has a crush on Leela, a crush that usually takes the form of either crude lust or goofy gallantry.
But for quite some time, they don't seem to think of each other very much. When the crew all go out to a bar, Leela goes home alone and Fry goes home with a woman from the 21st century. Fry does whatever he can to attract Leela Leela's scheme of using Fry to avoid Zapp Brannigan during their Titanic cruise in " A Flight to Remember " leads to some romantic opportunities, but they are complicated by Amy 's scheme to use Fry to fend off her parents.

Leela reveals that she has at least some feelings for Fry, even if she doesn't realize it: When Fry and Leela have a quiet moment together, they talk about the loneliness that they share in common, and they see each other as love interests for the first time, almost kissing, although the kiss never happens due to the ship beginning to sink at that very moment.
A similar situation, as touching but less romantic, occurs in " Xmas Story ", as Fry and Leela, expecting death soon at Santa's hands, huddle together under a branch of mistletoe.
Again, their kiss is interrupted. Although it's not as romantic as their interaction on the Titanic, the moment shows their deepening friendship. Another sign of their friendship that comes with a hint of romance is Fry's response to Leela's involvement with Alcazar. Fry reacts with apparent jealousy at first, but on reflection, realizes that he just wants Leela to be happy.
Here he shows a sign of maturity, something he doesn't often do.
Fry-Leela relationship - The Infosphere, the Futurama Wiki
As we find out in a later season from Leela, her biggest complaint about Fry as romantic material is his tendency to be childish. Fits and starts The relationship follows a mostly steady course for a long time. Fry and Leela remain close friends and become closer as time goes on. Fry plays the field but occasionally has bursts of lust, crush feelings, and rarely, something deeper for Leela. Leela also plays the field, but not so vigorously as Fry.
In " The Deep South ", when Fry announces his plans to live at the bottom of the ocean, Leela asks, "but what about us? When he begins pursuing a relationship with Leela, it was after two years of ignoring her in favor of other women. In " I Dated a Robot ", she helps him to find a robot celebrity personality to "to be romantically linked with.
She clearly knows that he is talking about her, but she prompts him for more details on this girl back home, basking in his flattery. As gratified as she is by his comments, she must be equally disappointed by his blank stare in " The Cryonic Woman ", his response when, attempting to remind him what a career chip is, she says, "It's how we met. He then goes on to fail miserably at defending her honor, in fact providing his opponents with ammunition and even inadvertently insulting Leela outright.
Leela's frustration with Fry's ineptitude is clear. Leela starts to swoon as soon as Fry, having eaten a parasite-laden sandwich, shows the slightest sign of being something other than a buffoon.
Her swoon disappears just as easily when Fry convinces the parasites to leave his body. In the closing scene Fry begins practicing the holophonor and shows by its projection that his feelings for Leela remain. Leela is impressed with Fry in " Parasites Lost " The friendship deepens in " The Cyber House Rules ", as Fry makes an effort to convince Leela that she doesn't need a fake eye grafted onto her forehead.
When she finally has the fake eye removed, she tells Fry that he is "a true friend. He gets another kiss later, but only on the cheek. Fry seems to be on a mission to win Leela's heart in " Time Keeps on Slippin' ". He starts off cool, offering Leela a romantic ride in one of the swan "boats" that aren't actually swans. Later, while they're in space collecting chronitonshe comes on again, suggesting that she and his face get to know each other better. When she rejects him, he says, "Come on, Leela, why won't you go out with me?
We both know there's something there. Later, Fry lures her to a love nest, claiming that it's a time-proof chamber that will protect her from the time skips. A time-jump occurs just after he says something crude--now Leela is gone and Fry has a black eye. Leela talks to Zoidberg about Fry, indicating that she likes him but is turned off by his immaturity. This is an important point on Leela's part: Fry's immaturity is the only thing that holds her back.
It forever remains the central theme of their relationship, at least until they are finally married in " Meanwhile ". However, other than the short-lived fling of Parasites Lost, this is the first positive sign of any kind from Leela: Still, when Fry barrages her with flattery and asks her out, she says that they are just too different, he being a man and she being a woman.
She walks away from him without hesitation when Bender distracts her. Fry makes another attempt to impress Leela by showing her that he has learned how to pilot the ship. She is impressed with him, but she is totally turned off to think that he learned the skill strictly to impress her.
Just in the middle of her exclamation that there's no way they could ever be together, time skips forward to their wedding ceremony. But Leela is convinced that she has been duped, and after time skips forward a couple more times, they are divorced.
They have one last conversation about their relationship, in which they agree that Leela will never feel about Fry the way he feels about her, under any circumstances. Fry obsesses about and eventually discovers the means by which he convinced Leela to marry him, but Leela never gets to see it. We find out more about Leela's attitude toward relationships in general and Fry in particular in " Love and Rocket ".
She apparently agrees with Farnsworth when he suggests that she is a "bitter husk of a human being who long ago abandoned hope of finding love in this lifetime. He doesn't listen Leela's advice, "I'm not attracted to a guy's message, Fry. I'm attracted to the guy. But on reflection she concedes, "given the chance, I'd give in to urges far more shocking. Fry is clearly far down on her list. Finding Fry unconscious after disabling Planet Express ship, Leela seems touched, mostly by the fact that Fry was willing to sacrifice his life to save hers, but also in part by the aptness of the message inscribed on the candy that Fry coughs up when she resuscitates him: At the home of Leela's parents in " Leela's Homeworld ", there is a sort of shrine composed of items Leela has flushed down the toilet throughout her life.
Fry notices on this shrine a letter from himself to Leela, which he describes as "full of my personal feelings. Again Fry is clearly far down on her list. Fry puts his arm around Leela while they race Moose and Mandy, but she swerves the car to get him to move away from her. After Leela has saved the crew from "pre-life", as she reflects that she is happy with her choice to return to adulthood with her friends, she and Fry share a meaningful glance, but nothing more. Fry, attempting to assuage his own guilt over missing a delivery mission in " The Why of Fry ", wants to make it up to Leela by taking her out to dinner.
This is typical of Fry, to miss the point entirely and to have the wrong reasons for asking her out. Typical of Leela is her rejection of Fry.
In fact, not only does she reject him categorically, she also explains that she is going out with Chazthe mayor's aide. When Fry and Leela cross paths while she is out on her date with Chaz, Fry has a brief moment of happiness, hoping that the date is not going well. Leela crushes his hopes when she tells him that the date is going very well, asking him to walk Nibbler.
While Fry from the future argues with Nibbler ofFry mentions that he has feelings for Leela, but also that she doesn't care for him. Nibbler offers to help Fry with respect to Leela, if Fry will agree to push his self into the cryo-tube. Fry is won over to Nibbler's request when Nibbler frames the issue as "save yourself or save Leela. While Leela looks at the photo with a hole in it, Fry walks into the room and appears, from Leela's perspective, in the hole where Chaz' face had been. Leela is happy to see Fry, and actually gives him a kiss on the lips.
After their harrowing escape from the space-bees in " The Sting ", Fry realizes that he doesn't want anything to happen to Leela, and comments that they need to be more careful. When the baby queen space-bee attacks, Fry puts his body between the bee and Leela to protect her. While Leela is in a coma she seems to have a lot more affection for Fry than she ever has before, perhaps prompted by Fry's death.
In one of Leela's coma-dreams, Fry is very romantic, and she enjoys it. The alert viewer might notice that something is clearly amiss with Fry being genuinely romantic with Leela. We have seen from the beginning that Fry has no capacity for romance, and usually approaches Leela with brazen lust even while thinking to himself that he is in fact being romantic.
When jelly-Fry comes into being, Leela expresses great relief that "Fry" is now alive. She says nothing about feelings for him, in fact clearly denying any such feelings with, "Feeling responsible for your death was driving me mad.
Fry's photo says to Leela, "I love you," but her hallucinations frighten her so much that she is unable to respond. When Leela wakes in the hospital, we realize that everything Fry said in her coma-dream was said by the real Fry at her bedside for two weeks. This is not the first time Fry has said, "I love you" to Leela, but perhaps going through this experience has matured him somewhat, which would finally give some meaning to the words.
Their embrace, lacking a kiss, suggests that even if Leela has begun finally to see the desired maturity in Fry, she's still comfortable being just friends with him. The opening scene of " The Farnsworth Parabox " shows Fry making a surprisingly determined effort to get Leela to go out with him. Leela clearly isn't going for the idea, as she cowers away from Fry on the other side of the couch and finally rejects his request with, "I have sweaty boot-rash!
Leela "One" tells the story to the others. The story makes it clear that Fry is indeed capable of impressing Leela, and not just on one date, but over the long term. After everyone goes back to their home universes, Fry asks Leela once again to go out with him.
Leela flips a coin, but, apparently beginning to consider him a possibility, decides against looking at it, and simply accepts his invitation. Never having indicated musical inclination before except briefly in Parasites Losthe says that he hears great music in his head. Leela, never having indicated musical appreciation before except briefly in Parasites Losttells the story of Seana loser whom she loved primarily because of his musical talent. The stage is set for an exploration of the relationship between Fry and Leela.
While attending a large performance by Fry, Leela sheds tears, but we don't know which kind of love they might indicate. She and Fry have become close friends over the years, but she has only briefly shown flickers of interest in him. When Fry announces that he will make his opera about her, she plays very coy, pretending to be surprised.
Everything changes when Leela hears Fry's music, when she shows that she is the same woman who dated Sean: In his opera, Fry describes Leela as "the woman that I idolize. After all the other opera patrons abandon the theater, Leela asks Fry to show her the ending, even if necessarily performed by his human hands. Love and time travel Fry's emotional repertoire grows just enough to include long-standing jealousy in Bender's Big Score.
Leela falls in love with and almost marries Lars who is a future version of Frya clear indication that it truly is only Fry's immaturity that makes her dislike him, as maturity is the major difference between Fry and Lars. Back in the 21st century, the Fry who becomes Lars reconnects with his family and his life, but pines for Leela, until he starts a long relationship with Leelu.
At Lars' memorial service, Leela seems to have a new appreciation for Fry, but she doesn't articulate it, and Fry moves on to a different woman in The Beast with a Billion Backs. However, when Zoidberg barfs for joy, Leela agrees that the way Fry and Colleen behave toward each other is "pretty sickening".
It could be that Leela harbors a bit of jealousy. Later, Fry breaks up with Colleen. To his credit, he doesn't immediately go slobbering after Leela.
He pines for a while, even going to counseling which Leela would appreciate for its contribution to Fry's maturity and finally decides to leave this universe. Leela practically encourages him in this endeavor. On meeting YivoFry falls in love with shkler. Leela is suspicious of Yivo for a long time, but she also eventually falls in love with shklim.Futurama - Fry thanks Amy for the ride
After being "rescued" by Bender, Fry sheds a tear on saying goodbye to Yivo.
