I used to use framegrabs to make little mini stories, back in some old threads. Their titles usually followed the syntax 'The Best Moments of Such-and-Such Episode and Their Extrapolated Consequences'. I remember I started with 'Time Keeps On Slippin'', and then moved on to others. Maybe I'll start doing that again...

Yeh the end bit is quite touching were fry sacrifices his O2 supply to save Leela. Which contrasts dramatically with The series has landed were Fry declares its every man for himself, when they run out of O2 on the moon.
Its interesting the way the writers toy with the shippy them throughout the seasons, after all in space pilot 3000, I think a precedent is set for potential shippiness, in that scene were fry surrenders to Leela to get the career chip put in, then she decides to quite her job..'because i always wanted to, i just never realised until I met you.'
Iam rambling now...Love and Rocket is very good, the bunny boiling ships computer is very funny!

It’s a pun, evidently based on the difference between complex numbers, and Imaginary numbers.

About Fry and Leela's marriage, sure Leela's okay now but what if that when they're married, Leela turns really bossy and domineering? I can just imagine it...

10 years later...

On quiet nights, when he is alone, Fry runs their wedding video backwards, just to watch himself walk out of the church a free man...

Oh please, Leela's already bossy and domineering.

Her personality may be fun in a cartoon but in real life...

Let's just say she would be a lonely, bitter person.

The few occassions where Leela has softened to Fry have seen a marked decrease in her general level of bossiness. She almost seems to open up, like her bossiness was actually a protective shell.

My point exactly. It's not like she's being bossy on purpose. I think it might have something to do with the fact that she came from an environment where she was constantly bullied.

I'm no psychologist, but why does Fry being submissive imply that he's perverted? Again, we know Fry grew up in a family where he was always being told what to do by Yancy Sr. (and to a lesser extent, Yancy Jr).

And I complain that others overanalyze...

It could be a combination of factors that make Leela "bossy" (I don't consider her to be bossy, just strict). As stated by bend_her, as a child, she was picked on by her peers because of her eye made her "bossy" (moreso sensitive and defensive). But I think were missing the obvious. Leela... is a woman. A very hormonal woman, according to the rest of the crew (especially the Professor). Luckily, she takes her emotions out through exercise.

I've realized yesterday while watching "The Sting" that Leela needs Fry more than Fry needs Leela. Physically, Leela's the one saving Fry's butt from his own (or Bender's) doing. More importantly, Leela gives Fry a personal purpose in life. If Leela never entered Fry's life, then Fry would find his life in the 31st century to be as pointless as his life in the 20th century. Fry has set out many times to protect her (A Bicyclops Built for Two, The Sting, etc.). He's been a great influence on her; she'd still be a fate assignment officer. And looking at how she was in "The Sting", she'd be an emotional wreck without him.

Heh... I just realized how fitting the job of "fate assignment officer" is for Leela.

Quite true. I know when I have any sort of dream, it's usually because I'm worried about something, and that something is more or less exaclty what my dream plays out to me, and I wake up feeling like it really happened. I'm sure this is something most people have, so why not Leela?

Basically, neither of the two could really go on being happy without each other. If Fry didn't have Leela, he'd probably would have been killed long ago, but he wasn't and vice versa with Leela, though she's needed saving far less times. In a sense, Fry's the "damsel in distress" and not a woman for once. A new twist on an old cliche.

True to an extent- let me explain. Dreams are created from the sub conscience. If you don't know about the sub conscience part of our minds, its a section of the brain that works without our own direct command (it's a bit complicated). So, when Leela was mentally out-of-it in "The Sting", the entire experience was composed of what was going on in there. From what she remembered last, Fry took the hit of the giant baby queen bee. So, in her mind, she assumed that Fry had died and took all the blame for his death. Now, in her last dream sequence, all the emotion shown derived from how much she missed Fry, not from the unbearable guilt that she felt. She was even about to put herself to sleep (practically suicide in a way) just to be with him. If it wasn't for Fry's support (by the way, it's very shippy), then she would have continued on with the final spoonful of honey.

About the dream in "The Sting", it's possible that what was going on around Leela as she was asleep would influence some actions in the dreams. If you listen to the commentary on the episode, somebody said that their original plan was for everything that Fry said in her dream he was actually saying at her bedside. It looks like they may have wanted us, the fans, to assume that Fry did have some influence to her dreams. Note the stress toy on the nightstand, the Ice Fields of Hyperion on the screen, and Fry's trademark jacket wrapped around her shoulders.

Leela doesn't save Fry from death that much, actually. Even so, most of the saving took place in the beginning of the series when Fry was clueless about how society worked. I wanted to empathize that Fry would be passionless without Leela. Back in the 20th century, Fry really didn't like his life as a pizza delivery boy with a girlfriend who *might have* been cheating on him. He didn't have any ambitions. In the 31st century, he might have a low-paying, yet thrilling job and a vulgar robot as a best friend, he still didn't really have any goals in life. When he realized that his relationship with Leela had a lot more meaning than originally thought, it gave him something to chase. Remember, he froze himself for Leela.

Frida, most of your points are valid for 3/4ACV-Fry. Before that, one gets (aw, heck, I get) the sense that he wasn't sure Leela was "the one" for him, although he still likes and respects her a great deal (ref: Bicyclops).

I don't think that Leela's dream was because of her subconscious mind, it was simply her mind trying to make sense of recent events as she perceived them. This doesn't imply guilt, just that she doesn't know the whole story. I have a rather mundane theory of why we dream, but the Shipper's thread is probably not the best place for it.

I noticed the jacket and stress-toy, but the picture on the wall was a good find. You can almost hear Fry absent-mindedly looking around the room, thinking of something to say before finding the picture.

Well, you shut me up Frida.  smile  But you still have to admit, they all equally needed saving at one point or another, and it was interesting. It isn't always just this character or that character. It's pretty much all of them.

I never opposed it in the first place. However, you are 100% correct on how often each of their lives are saved. I was more focused on Leela giving Fry something to live for other than Leela saving Fry.

But let's not forget the changes that Fry's free spirit and wide-eyed optimism wrought in Leela in the very first episode.



Fry: What are you doing?
Leela: Quitting.
Fry: Why?
Leela: Because I've always wanted to. I just never realised it before I met you.


While Leela gave Fry something to live for, it's Fry who teaches Leela how to live. Before he came along she was a jaded cynic who seemed willing to live her life in miserable acceptence of her lot.

Of course, the triumvirate is completed by Bender, who provides proactive 'energy' to the trio while gaining a much-needed moral guide from the other two.

It's a trio that works together even better than Kirk, Spock and Mcoy. And sexier.

I would love to explore how important Fry and Leela's relationship is to Bender and visa-versa. There's a lot to say on that topic. However, I'm not sure that it can be discussed here on a shipper's thread. I'll make a thread for it sometime later.

Uh... not quite. Back in the first two or three shippers' threads, I remember that a single page would be filled up within a day. That's 50 posts in a day. That would be fantastic if this series of threads could restore its title of being the hottest thread on PEEL. I got high hopes that the movies may jig it back to its former self.
