You all may remember when in "Time Keeps on Slippin'" Fry and Leela got married(then quickly got divorced.)Then,Fry sees his love note in the sky before it blows up.
Know,I think that the episode "The Devil's Hands are Idol Plaything" is part of the time that was skipped,but not what made Lela and Fry get married.I think Devil's Hands represents when they started dateing
and the love note is the reson they got married.

It doesn't work that way, Woodbot.  "The Devil's Hands..." took place after Time Keeps On Slippin'", and thus takes place after the time skips have been and gone.

"Time Keeps On Slipping" was set sometime in 3002, where as "The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings" are the very last episode, set sometime after Summer 3004 (if we're to believe "Bend Her" ). I don't think the time skip was that prolonged, a few months, 4 months tops, but not 2 year. Note that both Marv Albert and the Globetrotters attend the wedding. they wouldn't be there if it happened 2 years later, they're not that close to the PE crew.

Defrsotee: "I figured time was cyclic."
Fry: "Nope, straight line!"

Also chaos effects would make it extremely unlikely.

I got to give Woodbot credit, its a nice take on it and it makes for a nice story, but sadly it doesn't work out that way.

Good argument, but you've missed a key point here.  Woodbot's theory suggests that after the chroniton problem was solved, the PE crew relived the time they'd missed during the skips.  But they didn't.

Actually, Woodbot brings up an interesting point.

As Teral said, "Bend Her" refers to the year being 3004, even though the episode was produced long before the year 2004, and, as we all know, the producers usually set Futurama precisely 1000 years in the future. So maybe the time skips caused the date to advance 2 years (from 3002 to 3004) and somewhere inbetween, Fry won Leela's heart with both the opera seen in Devil's Hands and the stars in TKOS.

But the above statement can't really be taken seriously because TDHAIP was the last episode produced and would have had to occur later in 3004 than any other episode. Plus, there was nothing in TKOS that could have foreshadowed that Fry was going to write an opera in TDHAIP.

I know I definitely read in to this way too much, so ignore this post if you'd like.

What is this, Star Trek: Voyager?  Solving the chroniton problem DIDN'T cause time to reset itself!  "The Devil's Hands..." takes place a couple of years AFTER the time periods covered by the skips!

Closer to 1001 years, actually.  SP3K was first shown in early 1999, remember.

Oh yeah, I forgot about that. If you want to get technical, it's more like 1000 years and 8 months, seeing as how the first episode aired on March 28, 1999, and the pilot took place on December 31, 2999.

But, if you recall, in TKOS I believe that the year was referred to as being 3001 (during the whole Linda run about Britney Britney, her date of death was the year 3001). The episode is from the year 2001, so it's 1000 years later in TKOS.

the episode TKOS was a few months long. it started on the day when the PE crew were all together at central patk. and it ended AFTER they stopped the chroniton problem, a few months later. all other episodes are not this long. after getting rid of the chronitons, and after about 2 years, TDHAIP happened. it's that simple. there is no connection whatsoever.

Here's a theory, when Fry chose to get frozen in "The why os Fry", he would re-do everything he did from "Space Pilot 3000" to "The Why of Fry". Here's what might of changed:

"Space Pilot 3000": Instead of screaming at Leela's one eye, Fry would be extremly happy to meet the person from the 30th century he cares most about. When Fry escaped the Cryogenics lab, instead of trying to contact Farnsworth, we would concentrate on finding Bender. Also, when Leela caught up with Fry and Bender, instead of running away, Fry would tell Leela how lonely he is and Leela would become sympathetic and quit her job.

"Episode 2: The Series has Landed": The only change would be Fry being more happy when he met Amy, Zoidberg and Hermes.

"I, Roommate": The moment he moved into Bender's apartment, Fry would ask Bender to open the closet. Also Fry might ask Bender to remove his antenna temporaraly for "things that will happen in the future".

"Love's Labors Lost in Space": Fry would be intent on finding Nibbler.

"Fear of a Bot Planet": Fry would be more sympathetic towards Bender's complaints of the unjust treatment of robots, but Leela and the Professor wouldn't, and the rest of the episode would remain unchanged.

"A Fishful of Dollars": Fry would be more careful spending his savings, and would spend them for things for his friends instead of for himself.

"My 3 Suns": Fry wouldn't drink the emperor.

"A Big Piece of garbage": Fry would be more careful with the bomb planted on the garbage ball.

"Hell is Other Robots": Fry wouldn't tempt Bender to sin, but Leela might.

"A Flight to Remember": No change.

"Mars University": Fry might be nicer to Guether.

"When Aliens Attack": No changes

"Fry and the Slurm Factory": Fry would tell Bender not to aim the F-Ray at his sperm. Fry also might not try to win the contest.

"I Second that Emotion": Fry might try to keep Bender from flushing Nibbler.

"Brannigan begin again": Fry wouldn't mutiny against, but Bender might.

"A Head in the Polls": Fry would tell Bender to NOT sell his body, and Fry and/or Leela might vote against Nixon, though Nixon just might somehow win.

"Xmas Story": Fry would buy Leela an Xmas present sooner, and might buy something for Dr. Zoidberg, but Santa would still be angry at Fry and Leela for being naughty somehow, and the rest of the episode would be unchanged.

"Why must a Crustacean be in Love": No changes.

"Put your head on my Shoulder": Fry might not fall in love with Amy, knowing it'll ended kinda badly.

"The Lesser of 2 Evils": no changes.

"Raging Bender": No changes.

"A Bicycops built for 2": Fry might tell everyone NOT to go on-line, so they would never meet Alkazar.

"How Hermes requisitioned his groove back": Fry might not fall in love with Morgan.

That wouldn't work as the Fry who was frozen was still oblivious to what was going to happen. The Fry under the table is the one who was familiar with the future.

Yeah, the Fry that travelled back in time did not get frozen, and the Fry that was frozen was the same old Fry who would go about life as we saw. Nothing would have changed in his actions.
