Actually I see it meaning both sad and crying with joy. Depends on the general mood of the post, really. Plus how well I know the poster.

My best bet for how Futurama will end: Fry and Leela  start dating and move in together (with a closet set aside for Bender to live in). Last show will probably revolve around a wedding of some sort.

That's what I think will happen, not what I hope will happen. In my perfect world the Leela/Fry plot will have run its course and be dropped completely in the first few episodes/movie. Mostly because it's starting to become tiresome and repetitive. Watching the shippers having a collective meltdown will just be a nice bonus.

hey!! we wouldn't meltdown but there would probally be a big mass firey explosion at the time of it's first airing.

I would hate for the shippy theme of Fry/Leela to die down but i don't think i'd like them married for a while - just dating

Still wonder if Fry would loose interest if he scored with Leela. Often seems to be what he's after more than a commitment. Ever notice that he's not that gung-ho for her in the first two seasons, about until he finds out she's a human and not an alien?

Maybe he's like J.D. on Scrubs; always wanting what he can't have. Once he has it, he loses interest.

The 'chase' by Fry with Leela relenting at the end and then all starts over again at the next episode is almost as cliche as ST: Voyager's famous "RESET BUTTON".  Either break them up and let them get together at the very end or marry them already!

An added bonus would be Leela losing Fry to some other woman and realizing she made a mistake - have a couple of episodes showing her chase after him and get shot down.

That turnabout is fair play thing, y'know.

Yeah, but the collective suicides of Venus, Xanfor and Shiny would prey on my mind. 

I've been called an anti-shipper (that's a title more fitting for Kryten), but like you, I'm tired of Fry constantly chasing Leela, getting shot down but her always saying, "But we'll always be friends."

PEEL is nearly 7 years old.You're really dumb.This is one of the most obvious threads to make.
What does that meen?
That there already is a thread like this!

Plus,that smiley's traditional meening is crying from sadness.

Also,in case you haven't noticed,there is a General Discussion Forum.

You called a bunch of people a lot smarter than you arseholes.Not exactly the smartest thing to do.

Ummm,why exactly do you think I couldn't make a thread about how it will end?It's rather obvious to make one,I'm just not dumb enough to think that there isn't one already.

Yeah, I'd say there'll probably be some kind of closure with the Fry-Leela relationship.  I'd be willing to bet the last episode will feature some kind of wedding/Fry proposing to Leela type thing.  Then again, the writers know we expect that, and they love irony...  I just hope they back off on the shippy stuff for awhile.  I mean, I love The Sting and TDHAIPT, but I've always found futurama's scifi humor and satire to be its strongpoints.  Also I want more hypnotoad.

additionally, would you newbies please stop sniping at each other?!  sheesh.  Who cares if the smiley means crying because you're happy or sad?

Although not a series ender, if they do get more episodes ordered later I'd be interested to see if they can produce an episode with even more romantic brutality towards Fry than TKOS. Although the ending was dark, it was a classic and I'd like to see it bettered as a season finale  big grin

TKOS is one of my least favorite eps for that reason.  OK, that ep would have been a great way to kill the Leela/Fry relationship.  As it is, it makes me lose all respect for Fry to continue chasing Leela the way he does and it makes me view Leela as a cold, manipulative person to 'always be friends' with him knowing his feelings towards her.

But you're right - it was the most romantically brutal episode that I've ever seen (from Futurama or any other show).  The only way to top it would be almost unfantomable.

They all are, ha ha. I think Leela is genuinely interested in Fry. There are some scenes where she discusses it ("You don't want to be lonely like Zoidburg!" ). But she may think that every serious relationship she's tried turns into a disaster. Their relationship just sort of happens, or not, on its own. Neither seem to be able to change where its going.

Zapp dies mfrom a mysterious illness and for some reason makes Zoidberg his heir with his last breath.
Fry and Leela die while saving the Universe from the Brainspawn.(I'm getting really anoyed with those two!  wink )
Bender gets upgraded to version 1.3.7 and spontaneously combusts during the process.The last time we see him is when he's in the hospital for robots(Whoops,a cliff-hanger!)
Amy leaves Kif and returns to her slutty ways,while Fif gets promoted and becomes captain of the Nimbus because of Zapp's death.
The professor conducts a experiment,it fails and everyone (except the characters mentioned above)dies

Fry and Leela get married, have kids, and grow old together.  Fry becomes the owner of Planet Express, and Leela is now the captain of DOOP.  Zapp dies in a battle.   Kiff and Amy too get married, and Bender would be the same as he was, however now owns his own bar.  Hermes would be Head Leader of the Buercracy.

You're loving this, aren't you?

Relax... Like Ralph practically said, 'Futurama' has a reset button on par with 'Red Dwarf'. In other words, when you're back for the next episode, all the aftereffects and effects will be gone, and yet, the actions still would have happened, and the characters are all the better for it.

Thus, it takes much longer, but the romance becomes much more exciting and difficult to track. That's why so many people are shocked when they're told how deep the relationship really is. Come on, it's been in the making, like, forever?

And when you drop the UST (Unresolved Sexual Tension), a television series dies. All and all, I hope that the whole Fry & Leela issue is mainly put aside until the final episode. Unless, of course, they can do it well.

And the chance of that may be slim, after all, any more shippy things that happen are bound to be rehash, right? More violation of the laws of thermodynamics, yeah, that want I wanna see!

When overdone the characters suffer from the constant pressing of the Reset Button. They become stale and uninteresting. If you're making a show where you intend the episodes to stand on their own, that's fine, but if you're making a semi-serialized show like Futurama (where certain plotlines are supposed to develop over the run of the show (Fry/Leela, Leela's origin, etc)), you end up shooting yourself in the foot. Just look at V'ger, the constant pressing of the Reset Button made a complete mockery of the basic premise of the show, reduced the characters to caricatures (which you didn't care one tiny iota for) of themselves and severely hurt its ratings.

Exactly, show me "Roswell That Ends Well"-type episodes with an occasional "Luck of the Fryrish" or "Jurassic Bark" here and there. Sci-fi comedy (and references!), social commentary, satire and ironic observations of the human nature, delivered with heart is what Futurama is all about.

I actually think Leela have been quite genlt with most of her rejections, I would've hit him with a frying pan (no puns intended) after the 7th or 8th time.

Futurama, the ending:

Fry and Leela agree to give it a go, and fly the Planet Express ship off into the vast unfathomable reaches of space, bearing Professor Farnsworth's corpse to its' final resting place. He's to be enshrined with other supervillains from across the universe in the Memorial Galaxy. Meanwhile, Cubert is seen pacing the sub-basement of the Planet Express building, swearing revenge on Nixon for mobilising the armies of Earth to stop his father's last gasp at world conquest.

Out in space, Zapp and Kif are waiting for the Planet Express ship on board the Nimbus, as they want to put the corpse on trial. Bender has betrayed his friends by selling Zapp the course information, and is now spending his reward... wait. He didn't get any reward money. He's been taken apart by Zapp in order to make sure that it's not a double bluff, and now resides in 316 seperate numbered boxes in a warehouse. His head makes a nice paperweight for Nixon to jeer at every so often.

Amy is finally convinced by her parents to marry the fat guy from the Titanic, due to Kif's jet-set DOOP lifestyle meaning he's never around. The last we see of her, she is being carried (comatose) to her bridal bed by her new husband. Zoidberg is still hoping for a sniff of cash, and sleeps outside the chamber's door, like a faithful dog.

In sharp contrast, Scruffy has gone to work for Mom in exchange for a better salary and the chance to play pelvic pinochle with her. He's into that now.

Hermes and family have gone to another planet. Forced to flee during Farnsworth's reign of terror, they now make a living as outer-space potato men.

The mutants of NNY are all allowed to live on the surface - but only in New Jersey. They refuse the offer, one and all.

As the Planet Express ship approaches the Nimbus, Zapp fires the superweapon that the Earthican military were forced to assisinate Farnsworth for. Unfortunately, he bungles it, and tears a hole in space. Space and time begin to unravel, and molecule by agonising molecule, the Nimbus and her crew are ripped apart. Initially, the Planet Express ship flies past, but it is dragged inexorably back by the powerful forces now pulling all matter and energy toward the vortex. The last thing we see of our heroes is their impassioned kiss on the bridge, the camera passing out through the windscreen, stil looking at them as the ship is destroyed. Planets, nebulae, galaxies, all rush inwards to their destruction.

Doom has come to the universe. Oh my, it's the apocalypse all right. Farnsworth did always assume that he would have a hand in it.

Finally, there is only the God-galaxy left. He absorbs the rift in existance without any effort, and sighs.
"Not bad," he tells himself. "That one lasted longer than any of the others."

The screen fades to black as he commands "Let there be no more light!"


Of course, the show needn't necessarily go as far as that. They may stop before any of the above is even hinted at. However, that's the only logical conclusion to the show.

The fic's not a Fry/Leela fic unless the characters are in character. And a Fry/Leela fic with the characters in character is an amazing and wonderous thing.

If you disagree, you will be insulting the Shiny, and I will have no choice but to hunt you down and hit you over the head with a two-foot-long lemming.

True, true. But I just don't see 'Futurama' that way. What I see is the awkwardness and tension between the two growing, and growing...

Which in itself at times begins to seem noticably artificial.

Fry didn't profess his love. He apologized and then said 'I guess you'll never feel the same way about me as I do about you', which, come to think of it, is highly ambiguous.

It could have been interpreted many different ways, and Leela was probably looking around for one that not only justified her reaction, but also didn't hurt Fry too much.

They're still, and always shall be, each other's friend.

And maybe someday, more than friends...

They make sense, if you think through them. I believe over the past three years I've ended up posting several walkthroughs of exactly how they do make only the kind of fucked-up sense that time travel can.

It's just a matter of being able to understand. If you're having troble with that, I suppose I could dig up some of those long-buried posts and go over old ground...

Everyone knows that it is going to end with Bob Newhart waking up next to Susan Pleshette and she's going to ask him "What's the matter, Bob?" and he'll just say "I don't know, but I just had the weirdest dream."

Seriously though... This thread has gotten deep, given its humble beginings. I must have been sheltering in the warm, comfortable confines of the shipper threads too long.  My virgin ears are not used to this anti-shippy rhetoric! I love the non-shippy humor too and hope to see more of that than anyting else; I wouldn't tune in week after week for an animated soap opera but I must have my Fry/Leela fix. Who doesn't relate to Fry's quixotic quest for the angel of his eye?  And who hasn't been pestered by a nagging wanna-be lover, friend, whatever and had to ask themself if they should have a go at it and see what develops?  (Damn, that's how I ended up married. Now you've all made me sad!)

Anyway, tnuk, I agree that the time travel does make sense. (In my above post I was exaggerating.) It's just that sometimes, the loops of timeline modification can appear to be faulty at first glance, and that could make the show confusing to some viewers. And if those viewers decide not to be viewers anymore because they can't understand, then the episode just as efficently faulty.

Although, come to think of it, that may just be nature's way of weeding out the idiots...

^that reminds me of this magasine article i just read about this girl and this guy who started going out with each other and the guy was adopted. Once finding out he was adopted the guy wanted to trace his real family and he traced down his grandparents and realised that they had the same sur-name as his girl friend. He asked her if she knew his grandparents and she did. It turned out that the grandparents were the girls grandparents too and the girl and guy were cousins. But they still got married and had kids   puke

any-way - i really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really really don't want Electerik's theory to be the case.

Even though i am very shippy of Fry/Leela, i don't want them married or anything but i want the sort of senario at the end of Devil's hands are idol playthings where it hints that they are together but it's still open for change. And also i find it sweet that fry never gets leela no matter how hard he tries   cry

EDIT:- Wow - i think that is the longest post i've ever writen. go me! *does happy dance and realised wrist is now aching from typing*
