Cousins...hmmm might explain some common hair features:



Or the roundy ended noses.

Brother and sister, now that might take all 4 new DVD's to explain, also a bit to Star Warsie.

Maybe they're going to be one of those famous cousin couples like Einstein or FDR and Elanor (6th cousins was considered socially acceptable by the Roosevelts).

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.

Luckily it can't be.  Otherwise Leela would have been identified as one of Fry's relatives after the Fry's probulator exam.  But only Farnsworth was.

And even if she WERE related to him, there's still a 1000 year mixing in the genes.  I be you can't trace your family tree back 1000 years.  What if your boyfriend/girlfriend's genes and yours crossed there and you both had the same great, great, great....great grandparents.  The genes would have been so spread out it wouldn't even matter.  Your children wouldn't be messed up or anything either.

Of course my post was a joke at the expense of Star Wars. But I'm sure that was obvious...right?

In any case, I'm fine with Fry and Leela never getting together during the course of the show, but it should always be something that can be assumed will happen beyond the scope of the show.

By which I mean: as long as they don't show a flash forward of them both dying lonely (*cough*Jurassic Bark*cough*), then I'm fine.

But Leela did not know she was not an orphan so her or her parents lines of DNA are not in the genetic data base. Perhaps that's why mutants are not allowed on the surface. Leela had the means to easily check her DNA while working at the Cryo firm if it's not already a requirement of being a "citizen" from early on in life.

And if current DNA evolution theory is correct we're all evolved from one original "human" female. So we're all related to a certain degree.

That could be a plausible theory.  But again, the 1000 years difference makes it fine if they were related.

I wish there was at least one more episode on Leela trying to find her parents before she found out the truth.  I mean BBFT was okay, but it could have been done so much better.  I really liked the ending of that episode though.

Leela's full name is Turanga Leela, meaning, if she marries Fry, her name would change to Turanga Fry.

Unless her surname is first, like in China or Bajor.  But nothing makes me think this is the case; her parentage is Mutant-American-Earthican.  Given name first, surname last.

Besides, if she does it like China and Bajor, her married name would be Fry Leela.  Urgh.

Not even when I tell you her parents are named Turanga Munda and Turanga Morris?

Mutants go; family-name first, given-name last.

Not necessarily, she could "convert" to her husbands tradition, like some people do with religion.

I just knew Leela's parents as Munda and Morris, and was not aware of the order of their names.

I should be demoted to Poppler for that.  Thanks for the welcome.

She "could" convert to her husband's tradition, of course.  But she didn't converted to surface culture, even though she was raised on the surface.

MAYBE the orphanarium took care to observe her culture, but if any institution disregards individual culture, it's an orphanarium.  And besides, Cookieville thought she was an alien, not a mutant.

Maybe the orphanarium thought she was the Given-Name first Turanga, Surmane last Leela; they had no reason to think she was a mutant and the note didn't mention anything about name order.

If the orphanarium thought this, Leela grew up believing it and grew used to people calling her by (in her mind) her last name, and only would have found out the true order of her names in her adulthood, when it would be a colossal pain to change everything, especiall with 31st century beaurocracy.

But overlooking this problem, my guess is, she goes with Fry Leela.

A common twenty-first century practice may survive. She could keep her own damn name and not need to go through any name-related hassle.

Ha! I'm not even gonna count the number of suicidal statements in that post!

Anyway... has anyone thought of her name becoming Turanga Leela Fry?...

Pffth, stop being so reactionary and traditionbound. In case of a marriage Fry will, of course, take her name; Turanga Phillip.

Ofcourse it's not even guaranteed she'll marry Fry in the first place. Maybe she goes back to Sean.   tongue

Wouldn't he be Philip J. Turanga? Fry's Christian name comes first. Leela's Christian name comes second. So if he took her given name, his own Christian name would still come first.

Besides, Leela has already married (and divorced) Fry once. I'm sure she's never going to marry him again. Their children will be bastards, and in the future, that's probably a sign of greatness or something.

Okay. It seems to be what you want, so okay. I'm going to stalk from thread to thread, picking up on your flaws and generally bugging the crap out of you. Because it seems to be what you want.

I feel dirty whenever I start a sentance with "because".

Edit: Actually, it turns out that I'm too lazy to do that. You're not actually worth the effort since you'll just disappear in another two weeks along with the countless trillions of n00bs who couldn't quite cut the delicious PEEL mustard. So I'm just going to forget you ever existed.

However it ends, I'm sure the team will come up with something spectacularly to say the least. If they kept it going for those great glory years, the can do it again. I'm hoping Fry and Leela finally get together, as does everyone, but if they didn't, we'd have to accept it.

Fry and Leela married. But they should definatly date for a while be for that happens. Throughout the series they have been pissing me off with all the dancing around each other. Then when they do date they don't get any actual chance of any kind of relationship. They just neeed to get together. The only episode that showed what would happen if they had dated was the Farnsworth Parabox.

(my apologies if this hasnt been stated.... yet, but...) In my own humble opinion, when the new episodes do air, it should start with both of them dating.... I would like to see Fry make strides with his mentality... and not be a complete douche bag     tongue Leela inspires Fry to turn himself around, and actually become more mature, more intellegent (if possible), and actually make something of himself, so that he could perhalps be a provider, and so forth... Nethertheless, this is how I see it, (or would like to see it) Fry has made great strides with being able to produce an entire opera and music from his mind already....

Yours truly,

Hey, it [']Leela's Homeworld'] changed a major premise of the series! Perhaps even one of the major premises of the series! Which just proves that it can be done and that Matt, DXC, the writers and whoever else works on the overall series plot is open to that idea. Fry and Leela is also one of those major premises of the series, you know.

I feel the need to chime in here: the reasons I always thought of TDHAIP as more "shippy" and leading in to a resolution of the Fry/Leela romantic tension because that's the focus of the episode. In the other three episodes you listed, the Fry/Leela romance was tangential to the main plot (although their friendship was central to The Sting.) In Devil's Hands, it was pretty much the whole point, with other conflicts arising from it.

Exactly.

---------------------

No, no! I agree with what you said about it being the series finale bit, but about it continuing into TWOF and TS endings again? That's borderlining on 'Friends' style relationships. It would be taking a step backwards. And there are other plotlines that need to be cleared up as well, such as the 'Other' prophecy (I smell a Harry Potter spoof), the Yancey-looking hobo, and other miscellaneous mysteries. No, if they conclude the Fry+Leela relationship, so long as they both are happy (and not regular happy, I mean both satisfied with their relationship, weither together or not), than I'm sure us shippers will gladly rejoice.

Now they'd better not let down old fans,
We want to see Fry and Leela and BAM!
Or else we'll bomb Rupert Murdoch,

So, is it too early to resurrect the speculation party? I'm thinking it'll be something bittersweet, and I'm hoping that it leaves a tantalizing opportunity to follow the series with a movie.

It'd be nice if the origin of the slappings from Overclockwise were revealed, and it'd be nice if that "other" line from Nibbler were cleared up. Come to think of it, it'd be nice to find out what the Encyclopod stored the DNA of a human for...

I also stand by my ending idea on page one as one of the best possible for the series. That'd leave no room open for a movie, but it would be a bittersweet ending and has the potential for some awesome animation and classic Futurama moments. In my not so humble opinion, anyway.

Still the 'tragic ending where everyone dies' fan, huh, tnuk? I'd like to think the end of 'Meanwhile', and hence the series, would be a little more upbeat...

I prefer the ending to ITWGY myself. Unknown but hopeful outcome, slightly shippy, and vanishing in a blaze of light and music. None of this depressing death stuff.

Well, I think that art should imitate life: happy endings just aren't realistic. The end of the universe? Well, we know that's going to happen at some point, so it's got just a touch more realism.

Last night I had a dream they showed "Meanwhile" right in the middle of the new season instead of at the end, and the ending was Leela getting sucked into a small, blue wormhole or something, leaving Fry and the others behind.

You should write down the plots you dreamt.
Should they fit with the actual episode's plots, you can credit yourself second sight.
Though -admittedly- CC will probably just suspect you of somehow having gotten access to the episodes before airing time in an illegal way, and sue you.

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?
I could NEVER imagine that!
