Then on next Monday, there will be no Futurama.
On Next Tuesday, there will be one Futurama episode at 8pm but it's from Season 3.

After that, I don't know yet.

Clear enough?

So they WILL start doing it Seinfeld style, i.e. random episodes. Unless (fingers crossed) you're wrong. And they put on Raymond you say ?? [sigh]. Whatever...

[@TLF] TLF, I was just saying here or in the DD thread that being on Tv enforces some discipline in being there at 7pm (local time in Bris) and Watching it. Having the DVDs is Ok, I have them, but rarely watch them on demand, and if so I watch them on the PC rather than start the whole gear to see them in X-large format. I guess time is of essence at a certain age  frown

I think Fry saying no is more his being dumb because she obviously does feel bad, rather than being judgmental or trying to rub it in further.

Well.. was there anything between them at that point... judging by how Leela tried to save her own skin in Fear of a Bot Planet.... (that followed this ep)..no.

I guess Fry is more upset that one of his friends did something stupid and Leela sort of cut short his preaching. One or two more lines would have done it.

OR, if Leela would have said 'I know, I feel terrible, how could I do this' and start to cry (which would've been a bit too much to ask from her - maybe, but that's the way she felt inside most likely after Zapp had been in there - ahh that was mean but true wink ), Fry would've immediately leaned to the other side, the 'C'mon, it's Ok' side that is.

It's the nature of things in the Futurama universe: a balance of sorts - such as when Bender cut his antenna in I, Roommate. Before, Fry couldn't wait to see it off. After it came off, Fry was the first to propose reattaching it. It's a balance. Of sorts.

Hey, did anybody (Aussies..) catch last night's episode of How I Met Your Mother (sometimes I think I'm the only person who watches and enjoys that show)?
Ted wants to be with Robin, and he tells her, and she says what most of us think Leela is telling herself "What if it doesn't work out and we lose our friendship?" And in the end Ted and Robin are together...

So if they got together, Fry and Leela will. Obviously.   tongue

Sorry AnyOne, I so not watch much TV except Futurama, brief news and maybe a movie on SBS.. but hey, you wouldn't know abt BattleStar Galactica either so we're even  smile

Sadly - I can't relate to that - I just can't. C'mon, HAS ANYONE AROUND HERE had that experience, where you're friends for a looong time and you're afraid of taking it further for the fear of losing the friendship? It's nice but ... remote? Maybe it's just me... Damn... this is about US, should be in the DD thread... but just the same, I wonder if Leela ponders on the possibility of losing Fry's friendship or rather on getting HURT again.

Well I haven’t had any close guy friends who I’ve known for a ‘looong’ time so I can’t say from experience that it does happen. I can understand it if Leela just doesn’t like Fry that way, and only sees him as a friend. I’m sure I’ve said somewhere around here that I can’t see how their friendship would be lost, and then you brought in the issue about if there’s passion involved THEN they may lose their friendship…so…what? You’ve given a reason for why she could be afraid of taking it further, but you don’t think it’s a possibility?  hmpf
As for getting hurt…she could just give him a chance…without a high expectation…that way if it doesn’t work out, it won’t have such a large impact. – Says I, without knowing anything. I just find whenever I have a high expectation for something, it’s never what I thought it would be, but if I don’t worry about it and don’t expect anything, it’s so much better that I thought it would be.

I've had that experience.  And yes, I did lose him as a friend.  Because right after he broke up with his loser girlfriend, and we admitted having "a thing" for each other, and I invited him over, and we watched a movie but I was too scared to try to make a move (and I guess so was he) he met this other girl.  And called and told me (and yes, I do admire him for that).  And I got mad and hurt and cried, and he objected that we'd been friends for a long time, and I said we could again but I'd need some time to get over it first, and then his new girlfriend reconciled with her ex two weeks later, and he called me and told me but didn't, like, apologize or say he'd made a mistake or anything, and then we had a stupid argument over something minor which our emotional states jacked up into ridiculous intensity, and then we never spoke again.

So yes, I totally understand Leela's POV here.  And he wasn't even my BEST friend, just a fairly good friend, but it still sucked dead kittens through a straw and felt like a whirlwind tour of hell.  So I really understand Leela's POV.

Aww  frown

Arguments like that seem to happen to everybody at some stage. The funny thing is the fact that you know it was about something 'minor' and that at the time maybe it was something else affecting your emotions and you weren't really upset about the minor thing, you just used the hurt from major thing for the wrong situation. If both people know it wasn't a big thing they were arguing over, why do they allow it to get out of hand?

Poor you, Shiny. that must really suck kittens...
However, as devastating as your loss is, there can sometimes be a bright light on the other side. Look at it this way; if this 'friend' was the kind of person to do something like that to you, why would you want him as your boyfriend anyways? It would almost definately come back to bite you in an even more hurtful manner if you were going out with him and he was 'unfaithful' or something like that. So wipe your tears, girl-maybe it was all for the best.
*pats back*
As for Leela, things could toss up either way. My boyfriend, Ian, had been a really good friend of mine since grade 7. We really didn't have a thing for each other back then-just a friendship. But, here we are, in grade 11 and going out. Leela and Fry have been friends for at least what, 4 years according to the later episodes of the show. And although the cyclops wants to keep it safe who knows? Maybe, if she releases her tension and worries for even a little while, things will work out.

By the final season Fry is utterly devoted to her. If they became an item, or if they even looked like they were gonna become an item, Fry would never look at another woman ever again.
He's an idiot, but he's got a lot of loyalty and nobility about him.

I know you've rejected me a lot before but frankly I wasn't sure we were right for each other either, but now I am!

I was going to do a full blown analysis of this picture alone, but I'm just going to put dot points.

Note; space between them (how close, and yet too far away), each has own personal space bubble to themselves.
To bridge gap; Leela needs to make a move, Fry has done all he can in reaching out to her.

Anyone seen Bruce Almighty? Well, Bruce has God's power, but he cannot make his ex-girlfriend love him again. Love is a choice, and although Bruce's ex actually does love him in her heart, she cannot love him because Bruce became a big jerk.
Difference is that Fry is not a jerk, he would rather kill himself that let harm come to her (aka Sting/L&R). Leela has no excuse.
Episode placement (in relation to F/L eps)
Teenage Mutant Leela's Hurdles:
And I'm really happy I have that life back. [warm smile]
The Why of Fry:
It really makes me happy to see you right now. [smooches]
The Sting:
It got through Fry.  It got through. [snuggle]

Anyone would think that Leela is actually leading Fry on...

Uh, no.  He was REALLY mad/freaked about that final dumb argument, he totally didn't understand why we both were were getting so freaked out about it so he was freaking out about THAT so I've always been a little afraid that he just concluded I was a crazy-making psycho-bitch or perhaps a vindictive type who purposely turned an innocent conversation into a major drama just to f*** with his head, or something....I figure if we're fated to run into each other, we will sooner or later.  I'm too chickenshit to take fate into my own hands in this case.     roll eyes

Never thought of that, actually.  I'd have assumed that any intelligent person would have...but then, even quite intelligent guys do not ponder these things (or so I've been told) as much as we gals do.

Hey, shipper guys: would YOU have thought you made a mistake in that case?  Would you not have thought an apology and perhaps even flowers or a cool alternative comic book might be in order?

Perhaps he actually took me seriously during the original weepy phone conversation when I said, "When you break up with her, you can always come crawling back to me.  I'll still be here, I have no pride."  Of course, when I said it I thought it would be a few years later when they broke up, not two weeks.  And it turned out that I had more pride than I thought I did

I don't, fear not.     wink  But I don't think he "did" anything "to me," exactly...he really was astounded at how hurt and angry I was when he told me he'd met someone else, and I see the whole thing as a massive tragedy of miscommunication...but no, I also concluded that we were probably not really compatible if our signals could get as crossed as they did.

Anyway, thanks again, everyone.  You guys rock.     cool

Leela knows Fry will give his life to protect her from PHYSICAL harm....she would do the same for him, any time.  But her real issue is emotional abandonment, and she doesn't really know if he might want to quickly go back to being friends, as he did with Amy, but while Amy wasn't seriously hurt by it, Leela would be devastated.

Anyone who who didn't know what "conflicting feelings" were, perhaps...but the rest of us know that Leela does love Fry, but convinces herself she doesn't because her fear gets in her way.

And here's Fry_B... tardy... Whaaa ?

Wowww... geez Shiny. This one was not intended. It just did not happen to me so I aksed the question...but 14 years...I found that in time, our mind tends to emphasize the good and blur the bad (not the very bad though). So yes I hope you're Ok.

What can I say? He was probably on the rebound, considered you more as a friend and then quickly found someone else... But you probably analysed it all, many times and many angles. Hmmm the only thing: I can't figure you telling him he could always come back and the no pride stuff...grrrr..unless... was that thing love? (don't answer that)

Ok, better stop here, I lost the 'momentum' of the discussion - as you call it. One thing though, I'm not sure you would've been better off with him. And life isn't over. Yet. And you do not sound like you've been through what I describe as the terminal love that wrecks the rest of your life (the one that comes with a 'Pffft'). Or you hide it quite well.

I don't mind.  No, it wasn't capitol-L Love...though I don't know, if we'd dated for a while it might have grown to be. I'd just "kinda had a thing" for him since I started working at that place, but then he met the (first) girlfriend and I KNEW that wasn't going to work out (she wasn't as bad as Michelle, but she was of the same tribe  no no ) and had patiently waited for him to realize that someone who was always trying to change you wasn't the best match (and I just hope our drama didn't make him run back to her because she REALLY was bad for him, even if he'd never been interested in me at all I'd've been glad to see him free of her, I just don't think that's a legitimate way to behave in a relationship)(though I tried VERY carefully not to use my position as friend to saboutage her, I tried to give him objective advice when we'd chat about his life, because after all I didn't know everything and might have been wrong)(but in retrospect I think I was right about HER anyway).  So on my part he was in the emotional category of "potential boyfriend" only except that then he admitted he "had a thing" too and I got all excited and probably that didn't help (I'd never HAD a boyfriend really, well, I did date this one guy four times after high school but we never kissed or anything) but my feeling was not "Wow, he's finally mine!" but more "Wow, I'm finally going to have a chance to see if we'd be right for each other!  I finally might have an actual 'relationship!'"

And the 'no pride' thing...well, I have had a low self-esteem problem at times (but I'm getting over it, I really rather like myself now  wink ) but I was also being partially sarcastic 'cause I felt sorry for myself but also probably trying to make HIM feel bad a little because it HURT that he'd broach the subject with me but then apparently didn't value my potential as a girlfriend enough to hold off on this new girl (for maybe just A WEEK OR TWO, <slow burn> ) to see if it could work with me first.  Anyway, as it turned out, I DID have some pride, and I'm rather proud of THAT, though not of the stupid blowup that it apparently contributed to...I was rather inclined at the time to see his this new girl dropping him immediately as a kind of "karmic backlash," so I'm sure my previously-unexpected-but-wounded-and-ready-to-lash-out pride was spoiling for a fight beneath my surface mind, as it were...if any of that makes any sense.

Well, as you know I don't BELEIVE in that exactly, so no  tongue.... but even if I did, that wouldn't have qualified.  My high school crush, maybe, but I don't know if one-sided infatuations should count....

And yes I DO feel sorry for Fry, but that doesn't mean I have to blame or hate Leela for it.  I feel sorry for them BOTH and see both of them as contributing to the unhappy current situation.

...
Anyone would think that Leela is actually leading Fry on...

Leela has a long list of excuses, literally.  What would her life with Fry be like?  She's more mature than he is. She actually has a sense of hygiene. Could you see them compromise on how clean their place should be? Fry wouldn't be able to come close to her standards for neat and clean and she wouldn't want to hang her jacket in a closet with yogurt curdling in his hats. How many times has she referred to his lack of common or book sense?  She's a practical person who realizes that you can't live on love alone, plus you can forgive her for believing that the next doctor or political aide she dates won't turn out to be a jerk. She tries to let Fry down easy and to tell him directly and understandably she gets frustrated at his relentless advances on the one hand but apparent total lack of drive for self-improvement on the other.

Still, I can't help but hope that things work out for them. Fry seemed to show more flashes of reason and maturity as the original series went on, so maybe he matures enough that Leela's practical side can accept him and she can let her romantic side gloss over the flaws. I think they tried to convey that in "Robot Hands".

Well, I'm sure if she gave him a chance he'd try to be less of a slob just to keep her happy, and at the same time she'd be able to accept he's not the cleanest man and that he'd be uncomfortable always picking up after himself...takes two to tango and all that.   tongue

Oh my yes; the artful compromise is the saving grace of a long marriage.  However these two are on opposite ends of the slob-neatfreak spectrum. In real life I'd give them a 10% chance of making it long-term which the magic of television might double. They have taken a lot of liberties with physics, politics and history on the show, but they play this relationship pretty seriously and anyone who's been around long enough knows the romance can wear a little thin and the constant battle over something so pedestrian as housekeeping can poke holes in a relationship. Damn, I do want it to work out though.  So Fry, hit that vacuum cleaner, kill that shower mushroom and clean the compost pile out of recliner and then hit the gym! I guess you're right, any1, I've made changes in my life to please my wife and she's not half the woman Leela is. (Don't let her see that. If she asks, I said she's twice the woman Leela is.  Ooh, that sounds even worse. Forget it!)

 laff Ah, that gave me a good chuckle.

Of course Fry and Leela will work out. They have forever to sort out their problems.
They would get frustrated though I suppose. Trying to live up to each other's expectations. One would have thought if you like someone, by changing an aspect of their personality you'd be altering who they were and hence they would no longer be the person you liked in the first place...If there's no little conflicts it'd get old fast. Jordan said that to Dr Cox in Scrubs. Well, not that exactly, but that was the gist I got from it.

Could you see them compromise on how clean their place should be? Fry wouldn't be able to come close to her standards for neat and clean and she wouldn't want to hang her jacket in a closet with yogurt curdling in his hats.

How many times has she referred to his lack of common or book sense?  She's a practical person who realizes that you can't live on love alone, plus you can forgive her for believing that the next doctor or political aide she dates won't turn out to be a jerk.

And non approved.I'm beginning to think Coldangel was right about Leela hating  herself.Why else would she keep trying?...

She tries to let Fry down easy and to tell him directly and understandably she gets frustrated at his relentless advances on the one hand but apparent total lack of drive for self-improvement on the other.


Who writes this stuff?!Fry did improve and he also took a space bee stinger in his spleen!Is there any thing else Fry could do for her?!And if he improves,gets more mature then it wont let me watch Futurama without feeling pain.

Still, I can't help but hope that things work out for them. Fry seemed to show more flashes of reason and maturity as the original series went on, so maybe he matures enough that Leela's practical side can accept him and she can let her romantic side gloss over the flaws. I think they tried to convey that in "Robot Hands".

Devil's Hands.And they did convey that in Devil's Hands.Not 'tried' but 'did'.
