It's Leela's arm that's protective; Fry's hand is on Leela's hip/ass area, which started the whole debate in the first place. But Fry's body is sort of shielding Leela. Which is not unlike the first Xmas ep, where Fry positioned himself between Leela and Santa as they are backing away....
Let's split the difference and say that they were being protective of each other. Any other time Fry could be accused of copping a feel, but in this situation, he's trying to shield Leela. Leela, seeing this is trying to shield Fry and press the elevator button at the same time.
Bender is hiding behind both Leela and Fry.Doing the Shiny-dictated TOTPD
