Sorry FryFanSpyOrama, why exactly did you post exactly the same list that you posted further up the page?

Two reasons one is that I've updated the list on the second post, and I sort of forgot to check that I've posted this list the first time.

Fry: Cyclops.
"Lee Lemon": Aww. She sounds sweet.

Yeah, that was an early (early episode) indication that they both had feelings for each other.  Leela/Lee Lemon seemed not only surprised but genuinely happy about Fry's accidental revelation.

You are right, thanks for mentioning that and as for the marriage proposal: That all depends, what are you like?  I see myself as Fry mixed with a little Peter Parker and a dash of Robin Williams.


Also, in Leela of Her Own, Fry has the chance to pat Leela in the butt, but doesn't.  He's too nervous that Leela won't like the way he does it.

I do agree with the other posts that there are many themes in Futurama, such as friendship, starting over, and fitting in.  On the other hand I feel that Fry/Leela relationship has been in the show on at least some level since the pilot.  When Leela and Fry shared a close moment in the ruins of Old New York talking about being alone.  So I would say this is a main theme of the show.

fryfanSpyOrama: I hope you're not as hairy as Robin Williams or Tounge Luck might not be interested. Now on topic, the show is so beautifully designed and written, it has that shippy story going on in the background without cramming it down your throat like most sit-coms. It's really brilliant how it can be emotional and not bile-inducing at the same time.

I agree with switch and DoTheBartman. Futurama is many different things, and each episode is different (like the earlier Simpsons episodes).

Well, if this thread proves anything, it's that Futurama is multi-faceted (some of you have said this already; you know who you are).  It is not one thing to every person - we each interpret it in our own way.  It's not all about the funny, or the action, or their missions, or the romance (although that is probably one of the bigger ones), or friendship, but a big almalgum of all those parts.  It all ties together (at least, if the show was still being produced, it would). 

I'm surprised no one mentioned a certain little thing about the F/L relationship.  Remember what Nibbler said in TWOF?  "Ah, she must be the other."  I think the Futurama universe still hangs in the balance, and there is still something out there more sinister than the brainspawn.  What was fortold to come of this, a relationship between Fry and Leela, and perhaps their progeny?  I know I sound like some fanfics here, but I think they have a good point.
