When Fry was complaining about Amy in PYHOMS, hint of jealousy in Leela's voice?

Hooray, my turn!

In Fry and the Slurm Factory Fry overcomes his addiction to the super-concentrated Slurm to save Leela's life.

Also during season 1, Leela was helping Fry make the right decision after making some stupid mistakes (Helping Fry realize he hurt Bender's feelings in "I, Roomate", Saving Fry from the organ donors and Trostilians after some thoughtless decisions in "My 3 Suns", Trying to stop Fry from isolating himself from the real world in "Fistful of Dollars", and helping Fry realize he hurt Guenter's feelings in "Mars University" )

Fry didn't really seem to value Leela as a girlfreind (50 bucks!? not even if she was my girlfreind!) early on, since he never really listened to her advise, and didn't really care if she went out with someone else (like the beach bully in When Aliens Attack, or the guy with a lizard tougue).  She seemed more like a nagging nuisance at times, but still valued her freindship.  I think their relationship started to get more serious during season 2.   smile

Along that vein; in LLLIS when they first encountered the Nimbus, Leela was all dreamy about Zapp, and Fry's respons was childish teasing, rather than hints of jealousy.

Even in Brannigan Begin Again he didn't hesitate in joining Zapp's mutiny, rather than standing by his captain (and potential girlfriend). Seems to me the turning point came sometime around Xmas Story, with some seeds sown in A Flight To Remember.

It think that might be due to the fact that Fry just wanted to fit in at those points. I do agree however that X-mas story was a turning point for Fry  love

I thought the turning point was "Parasites Lost".  After "Xmas Story" you had "The Deep South" and "The Cryonic Woman" - in both cases Fry was willing to leave his present way of life - including Leela - to go off with another woman.

Okey in the Deep South, Leela was putting Fry down abit with the ocean madness bit, so Fry may have just been doing it because he felt spurned by Leela. In "The Cryogenic woman" :shudderes at the thought of the episode: he found his old girl friend whoch gave him a lik back to his past. So as far as their repect for each other goes i think An X-mas story was a turning point.

actually both xmas story and parasites lost were turning points. Like Wu_Konguk said thats when their respect for each other grew and the little seed of romantic hope was planted in Fry's head. Parasite's Lost was the first episode where he acted on his affections becuase he wanted to and not because there was a major possibly life threatening crisis.

But this is taking us off topic again and Kryten has already threatened to close the thread if it does that.

So has anyone confirmed what I mentioned about Leela's Quote in 'The Deep South'

:squirms unconfortable in chair: well...you see.. I well. Cut a lng story short I've actually been working flat out for the past few days. Getting up at 5 in the morning and not getting back til 8 in the evening. But I will tonight ...maybe.
Hmm interesting though that most seem resigned to the fact that they are destined foreach other, there have not been any agruments so far.
I was alos thinking, during the first season Fry may of acted that towards Leela because he was afraid. In "Love's Labours lost in Space" Fry is clearly awear that Leela hs very high standards and may have been afraid to approach her. He even commented on her not giving guy with low IQ's a chance :interesting: I don't think it was until Parasites Lost that he was able to really initiate anything.

"But, Fry, what about us? What about your life on the surface? You don't belong down here."

I see what you're getting at, Astro. It could be seen as a first sign that Leela is interested in Fry, however slight.

I always taken that she meant the PE crew as a whole (or at least the trio of her, Fry and Bender). Taken as a whole it's most likely that she was more concerned for Fry's wellbeing, than for any future realationship they might have.

Now that I think about it Xmas Story seemed to be the only season 2 ep that had any real F&L moments.  Leela was helping Fry get out of a mess he got himself into in PYHOMS because even though she sees him as immature and a slob (which is basically what she sees in him throughout the rest of Season 2) she knows he's not a bad person (like Zapp)and is still her friend.

I think Venus's analogy best sums up the F&L affair as far as seriously wanting to be boyfriend and girlfriend.  The only thing I don't understand is why Leela was so surprised about Fry's feelings about her in Parasites Lost, when he (unintentionally) told her that he had feelings for her in War is the H-word.

About "War Is The H-Word": Fry only said he had "a thing" for Leela in the midst if a bunch of soldiers talking about their girls back home. And once Leela revealed that she was Lee Lemon, Fry didn't say or do anything. Leela probably concluded that, although Fry liked her, he wasn't in love with her, otherwise he would've said something, anything.

As for Leela, she was flattered about Fry's interest (and happy about beating Amy), but didn't have any feelings for Fry, besides friendship.

Roll around, "Parasites Lost". Fry is now a buff, well-articulated and considerate guy, who sweeps Leela of her feet. After such a day, the events in "H-word" is probably the least on Leela's mind.

I agree that is really was not until season 3 that they really had good L&F moments. i mean there were some great moments like "Parasites lost" and "Time keeps on slipping". Before anyone brings it up, hopefully I've got the chroneology right, I belive the reason Fry wanted a Lucy Liu bot in IDAR was because he felt spurned by Leela's divorce. I do think however "Time Keeps on Slipping" proves that Leela does feel for Fry he just had to show her.
Damn Fox, i want to know what happened after "love and Rocket"  mad

I don't know Teral. i mean the foundation of any good relationship is friendship (and that sounded corney in my head). I think that what Fry would have to make Leela realise is that the worms brought out his good points more with time he could bring them out himself.

Fry's not the sharpest tool in the box, he might have forgotten he'd said it.

I agree with that. My post was meant as a way of explaining why Leela was so surprised, when Fry declared his love for her in Parasites, despite the fact that he already gave her a hint in H-Word.

Probably. But from Leela's point of view, it seems like Fry didn't mean it seriously. He tells a stranger that he loves this girl, the stranger turns out to be the girl he loves, and he doesn't follow up on it. Granted, Leela should know that Fry probably wont remember, but if it was serious and Fry really did love her, she would expect him to say something.

Or the writers simply disregarded the line, but what would be the fun in discussing that?

Another thing that must be taken into consideration in these things is that sometimes the writters mess up the continuity. Although Futurama is not as bad a as other shows, it still has inconsisitancies.

OR Fry realises he's admitted his feelings to Leela and is too embarrased or unsure what to do about it and he needs some time to work up the courage to do anything.

Thats the good thing about strangers, you can pretty much admit anything to them without much risk of it getting back to the people who it concerns, which is what I think Fry did

True but you do have to be careful what you say to others just in case they turn out not to be a stranger, maybe Fry had learnt this lesson now.

If Fry and Leela are going to have sex, I truly hope that Leela can be gentle in bed because if she won't things are getting out of hands. Fry has no hope but I must say that I "envy" fry if he could have sex with Leela. Sometimes I truly wish there would be same kinds of women out there like Leela, of course there are same natural aspects but where those women could be found? Hints are welcome...

Okey..... well the point of this thread was not when Fry and Leela were going to have sex but whether or not hey were going to get into a relationship. I realise sex is a part of a relationship but they can't really show it only tell you that it has happened a la  Anthology of Interest I. I do not think that the sexuall paterns of the characters really matters that much.

:Reading cinescape: oh my hmm maybe I'm wrong. apaarently in the new series Matt and David X are pulling out all th stops and spicing up Futurama since they have nothing to lose:

"There's a lot more nudity in this upcoming season. I can't believe were getting away with it. And it's nudity fans crave."

Insinuate what you will but this might mean that my previous post was not exactly correct.

Well after watching Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles I feel justified in resurecting this thread. That and as the series draws to it's close is the likelyhood of Leela and Fry getting together more or less likely from the new evidence presented in the latest episodes.
I will probably rewatch the other series "5" episodes to find more evidence. Never the less I think I have made my thoughts quite clear on the matter from the beginning of this thread but evidence is always helpful.
The Teen Leela and Teen Fry moments in teh episode I think clearly shows that Leela does have feelings towards Fry, but words can be clumsy so let the pictures tell it.



I think I have made my views quite clear.

I agree on the last grab. That indicates something might be in store for the L&F-shippers. Leela have a kinda of loving/caring look on her face.

But Fry and Leela going on a date, was most likely Leela wanting to get the whole "teenage package". Kurfew/cerfew (how the hell is that word spelled), grounding, sneaking out, dating, the works. And who is better suited than Fry to help in that area? He's fairly handsome (I guess) and think Leela is quite the babe, and most of all she can trust him.

Does Leela really know any of the teenage mutants well enough to go on a date with them? If you're trying to relive the teen experience, you don't want it spoiled by some sleezeball. And for all his lack of brain, Fry is a very decent.

Another proof, when Fry tried to lean over during the race, Leela quickly jerks the boat to one side, and send Fry grabbing for the seatbelt to stay onboard.
