This has always been one of my favorite episodes of the series and I agree with all of the points made above. However, there is something that has been bothering me for ages (literally
First is when Leela supports, if not suggests, the idea of Bender cutting off his antenna (16:41):Leela:
Oh, now look. It's obvious you miss being Fry's roommate. But there's got to be a better way to deal with this.Bender:
Like how? Having my antenna removed?Leela:
Well, if that would work.Bender:
Are you crazy? That's Little Bender you're talking about...
Then later, when Bender is about to cut it off, Leela seems to be strongly opposed to the exact same idea (18:42):Bender:
No, I'm going to chop off my antenna.Fry:
Hey, yeah! That sounds good. Can I give you a hand?Leela:
Fry! Don't help him mutilate himself.
So what do you guys think? Am I reading too much into something or does Leela completely contradict herself after only two minutes?
