The Love That Matters Forever Chapter The Wedding, a futurama fanfic | FanFiction
Well when you actually look at it closely you can see that it completely ruins the Fry and Leela relationship and the story of the show overall. Philip J. Fry I, or simply just Fry, is the main protagonist of the animated sitcom Futurama. Philip I was a native to the Wife: Turanga Leela (see the Relationships section for details on Leela as his wife) . "My God it's the future! My parents. This isn't the first time Bender's played God; "Godfellas" had him At least the show finally directly addressed the Fry/Leela problem. Still, it's a nice lampshade scene when Leela takes Fry aside for some relationship talk.
When the universe restarts and Fry realizes that he can drop out of time back into "Leela's" life, he is still the same old Fry we always knew: This is, of course, the man who said, "I love Leela.
The fact that we don't see them kiss suggests that the date is still officially a "just friends" date. It seems that Leela tends not to have feelings for Fry when he is around. In the previous episode, the Leela who lost him looked back and said that her time with him was the best time in her life.
But the Leela who has to put up with him day in and day out is usually not very interested. In " That Darn Katz!
Why I Dislike The Late Philip J Fry | burrunjorsramblesandbabbles
Fry in Zoidberg's body and Leela in the Professor's body on their date. At first she obsesses about her appearance, especially her eye. When Fry reassures her that she is "the most beautiful woman in the world", she changes direction, scolding him for shallowly being interested only in her looks.
She gets really carried away with this idea, and eventually swaps her mind into Farnsworth's body to allow Fry to "prove" his love to her. For Fry, always wanting to prove his love to Leela in some grand and often ridiculous way, this is a golden opportunity. All he has to do to prove his love and defend his honor is pretend that he is turned on by Farnsworth's body while Leela occupies it.
But he is a bit grumpy about her challenge, and wants revenge: They both finally find that they are indeed attracted to each other, even in hideous bodies, which leads to them having sex.
Although this is the first time ever that Fry and Leela have had sex the sex in "Anthology of Interest I" was fictional, a story told by the What-If Machinetheir own bodies still have not been involved. So in a sense Fry and Leela have still not had sex. It is notable that Fry, complaining to Hermes about his predicament, admits that while he obviously is not attracted to Farnsworth's body even if Leela's mind is in it, he is "willing to lie about it.
Although Leela doesn't hear him say this, she knows that Fry can't possibly be attracted to Farnsworth's body; when she sees his attempt to be attracted to it, she is seeing an increase in Fry's maturity, which is what she has wanted from him all along.
Fry follows his usual formula for Leela in " Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences ": Although in the previous episode they were hot and heavy, by the end of this episode the best Leela can muster is an extended kiss on Fry's cheek. Nothing much changes in " The Mutants Are Revolting ".
Although Fry and Leela attend Mrs. Aster's gala together, it's business as usual for them. When Fry arrives in the sewer, the main thing on his mind is to impress Leela by sharing the suffering of the mutants. Although Leela is angered by his shallow notions of their suffering, she is ready to forgive fairly soon. Still attempting to impress her, Fry goes for the grand gesture again, by jumping into Lake Mutagenic.
Leela is impressed, even to the point of wanting to kiss Fry, but not enough to overcome her aversion to Fry's grotesque body--she refuses to touch him.
Later, celebrating the success of their social movement, Leela warms up enough to kiss the still-"mutated" Fry on the lips. Many episodes go by with no mention at all of the relationship. Naturally, she rebuffs him. When Fry leaves Planet Express to become a cop, neither one expresses any particular sadness. Leela seems surprised to realize that a long delivery would be less enjoyable without Fry. In " Benderama ", the two are seen together a few times, but nothing happens between them.
Another silent episode goes by, but " Ghost in the Machines " shines some light. Leela is in her usual mode concerning Fry. After Fry saves the life of another parade-goer, we see Leela among the crowd of people cheering him. So Leela seems still to consider Fry a friend.
But she clearly has no romantic interest him. When Fry publicly announces that he has had sex with the Mayor's wifeLeela has nothing to say. She visits Fry in the hospital, but she doesn't go with him to the Amish home world. While Leela hasn't changed, it seems that Fry has: It's business as usual in " Fry Am the Egg Man ". Leela's not interested, as we see when she shows interest in Angus McZongo and calls Fry her "strictly platonic friend.
When Fry announces in " All the Presidents' Heads " that he has a night job, Leela is completely taken by surprise. At a party at the Head Museum, she dances with Martin van Buren's head. Although she remains his close friend, as we see her tenderly congratulating him on having saved the earth in " Cold Warriors ", her romantic inclinations toward Fry are nearing an apogee. Leela demonstrates that she does at least sometimes think about their relationship.
She talks to Fry openly about it in " Overclockwise ", describing it as "on-again, off-again". She muses about the future they might have together and has the same concern she always has: He reminds her of it with his starry-eyed suggestion that he would always be happy if she were to love him. We see Leela reading a magazine article that illuminates the current state of their relationship: Fry tries to argue, "But I thought we Perhaps if he really knew what he wanted out of life, he would have said something like, "But I thought we would grow old together.
Bender has anticipated Leela's request for a description of their future; as Fry and Leela read it together, their faces indicate that Bender has predicted a happily-ever-after story. Liftoff Several more episodes go by without touching on the relationship. By the time we reach " A Farewell to Arms ", Leela has apparently come to terms with being in a relationship with Fry.
Throughout the episode, Fry looks for ways to impress Leela and show her his love. She appreciates his solicitousness, but finds it unnecessary, and later downright dangerous to her. Early on, her reaction to his behavior is, "I appreciate your gallantry, but isn't this a bit much? Fry makes another gallant gesture by using his pass to Mars to create a fake pass for Leela, choosing himself to stay behind and die with the earth.
Leela sheds a few tears for her loss after arriving on Mars, but of course cries out, "Fry, you noble idiot! When the Earth is not destroyed, Fry and Bender sit around drinking; it's no surprise that Fry seems not to realize that Leela is still alive, that they could be reunited. When Mars passes close to Earth, Leela needs help to get back home. Fry runs to help, but Leela calls out, "Or somebody else could do it! Fry apologizes to Leela, but her response is gratitude that he was willing to sacrifice himself for her, and although he failed miserably in his attempt to rescue her, that he is the only person who loves her enough to try.
The episode closes with a view of their severed arms floating through space; symbolically, the arms are not separate, but holding hands, presumably for eternity. The relationship again goes silent for a couple of episodes. In " Zapp Dingbat ", Leela has no hesitation in sending Fry away to keep watch over her father. But when he convinces her that Munda's happiness matters more than Leela's scruples, she is finally seeing signs of the maturity she has always hoped for.
When he suggests that he himself might be marriage material, Leela astounds both Fry and the audience with, "You're getting there," and a rare kiss on the cheek.
In a rare moment of continuity, at the beginning of " The Butterjunk Effect " we see that the relationship has followed a real trajectory and taken a step forward: Fry and Leela dine with Kif and Amy.
Leela describes the group as "Two happy couples on a double-date. She finds him irresistible when he is covered with butterfly pheromone. But then, Amy also finds him irresistible too.
Defending her territory, Leela refers to Fry as "my boyfriend.
After the stimulants have worn off and Fry emerges from the giant butterfly's body, Leela seems no happier than the others to find him back to normal. Leela shows more signs of being invested in " Fun on a Bun ". When Fry gets embarrassingly drunk at Oktoberfest, which by now has become a stately and refined affair, everyone but Leela abandons him.
Leela stays a little longer to glare at him, perhaps contemplating her next move. She finally arrives at a decision and says that she is "breaking up with" him. Of course, Fry reacts in surprise at the idea that they were dating, but that is not any reflection on the state of the relationship; it is simply a reflection of Fry's lifelong cluelessness or perhaps drunkeness.
At Fry's memorial service after his apparent death, Leela again refers to him as her "boyfriend", although in the context of having broken up with him. Both grief-stricken and guilt-ridden over Fry's death, Leela has all of her memories of Fry surgically disconnected from her conscious mind.
But Leela's conscious mind is no match for her unconscious, which still cares about Fry: Fry, having lost all of his memory due to a blow to the head, has a similar experience while staring at a "prehistoric pig butt" with a purple tail. During their hand-to-hand battle, both Fry and Leela lose their head coverings, revealing their hair to each other and causing a spark of recognition in both of them.
Even before they fully remember each other, they start making out. Even after finally recognizing him, she continues making out with him; there is no sign of their previous breakup. The bona fide relationship trajectory continues in the next two episodes. In " Near-Death Wish ", Fry even neglects Leela a bit, as he rebuffs her advances due to his tunnel vision over Farnsworth's parents. There are a few more episodes that don't touch on their relationship, although the non-canonical " Naturama " throws a bone to diehard fans who really want the two together.
Fry and Leela the salmon agree even as juveniles to mate when the times comes. They spend their time together as they mature. Tragically, as they return to their spawning grounds, they find that they came from different originating streams, and must separate.
Fry eventually finds that he can't cope with the separation, and risks life and limb to be with her again. They die happily ever after. Later, Leela the elephant seal is interested only in the beachmaster, not even aware of Fry's existence.
The genuine arc of their relationship continues in " Fry and Leela's Big Fling ". For reasons unexplained, they keep it a secret from their co-workers, but they are otherwise clearly dating happily. Leela seems to have adjusted to Fry's goofiness, enjoying the ambience that Fry has created for their rendevouz using items he found around the office, such as post-it notes and white-board markers. They even have progressed to the point that they go on a romantic and secluded vacation together.
They have a lovers' quarrel when Leela's old boyfriend Sean shows up, but Leela remains committed to Fry. Still, there is some mystery left concerning their love.
When introducing Fry to Sean, she says, "He and I are She even has sex with him once they are alone again.
In spite of this strange exception, progress continues. When Fry goes missing in " T.: The Terrestrial ", Leela notices, and when Bender tells her that Fry is out buying flowers for her, she responds warmly. Later Leela finds herself knocking on Fry's door, reminding him that they had a date. She seems unsurprised to hear that Fry is drunk and is standing her up, and she even departs with a genuine and cheerful "I love you!
And Fry is, after all, Fry: Many episodes go by with no comment. In " Leela and the Genestalk " we find that all is still well with them, when Fry offers Leela a kiss to console her over her squidification disorder. Of course she is not consoled, but she does return his kiss, even if half-heartedly.10 Most Emotional Futurama Moments
In the advanced stages of the disorder, Leela tries to break up with Fry, being unable to imagine what kind of future they can have together. She is surprisingly cruel about it, referring to their long relationship as "Whatever it was that you and I had together". But Fry remains loyal, and when Leela is cured of squidification, they appear to go back to the love that has been steadily growing for many episodes now.
Leela guards her territory in " Game of Tones ", forbidding Fry to have sex with his ex-girlfriend in a dream, and later asserting her exclusive right to dump Fry. Attending Bender's dance audition in " Stench and Stenchibility ", the couple sit with arms around each other.
For all the years that these two have been together, here they are today, married, and soon enough ready to become parents to their newborn baby-- Lily.
To Fry and Leela. Fry and Leela clicked glasses together and took a sip with their arms linked around each other. It felt funny, as they never done anything like that before. It was time to cut the cake, as it was something that Zoidberg couldn't wait.
As Fry picked up the knife, he remembered when he killed Zapp Brannigan. His hand was shaking, almost dropping the knife. Leela then put her hand over his hand, calming his remebrance. She smiled at him, and they both put their hands on the knife. They both rose up the knife and slowly sliced the cake in half. As they were cutting, Fry looked at Leela sadly.
He remembered how come he had to use the knife Zapp had hurt Leela Well, he really didn't want anything to happen to her. Right now, he was so amazed and relived that the woman of his dreams was not only his friend or girlfriend It was like a miracle.
After that, people soon got to dance at a precious song that they could dance to. It was romantic, and had a little disco in the back.
You're the answer to my prayer And you're with me everywhere You're my angel You're all I need tonight Give me shelter from the rain You breathe light in me again You're my angel Miracle You're all I need to know tonight While the song was playing, Bender, Fry, even the Professor got down! They were dancing like they never danced at a party before.
The Lionel Richie song really kept them in the beat. Leela and Amy literally started to giggle as Zoidberg started to dance with them, but kept on making a fool of himself by showing his "Snipper Spin". Soon after, the special dance came, as they all danced in a small beautiful slow song. Leela got to dance with her father, Morris, while Fry since his mother wasn't there got to dance with Leela's mother, Munda. It'll just be like a baby Leela. She's got red hair with purple highlights, two eyes, Leela's nose, and Leela's beauty.
Just like her mother. Leela's back was faced towards the crowd of women, as she prepared to throw the bouquet behind her. With a struggle of her shoulders, she flipped the sphere of flowers over her head, and into Amy's hands. This is the sexiest part of the party! The Professor states clearly that they are witnessing the creation of a new universe, not the old one they left. He also when they arrive in the third universe they eventually settle in says that this universe is several feet shorter than their own one.
Thus its clearly meant to be a different universe but with the same history, therefore Leela-1 is not Leela Leela-3 is not Leela That was an entirely different character. Furthermore the Fry that she went through all of those adventures with is not the same Fry as the one she is with now. That Fry is killed by the original when he and the Professor and Bender land on and crush their duplicates. You can see how that might throw a spanner into the works of the Fry and Leela relationship.
Here its exactly the same situation. 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!
