I'm fairly sure I'm months too late for this, that it has been said before more thoroughly and eloquently and that I'm about to be shouted down, but... what the hey. Here I go!

Was anyone else mildly irritated that despite the fact Fry and Leela were technically on the verge of mutually consenting marriage, there seemed to be almost zero ship factor between the two in the movie?

Oh, and hi by the way. Back for a while. D:

Good to see you back, Jimmy.
I can't comment on BBS because I still haven't seen it.

No, not really. I was just irritated by Lars in general.

And now I must reply to some quotes.

I completely agree with you, coldangel_1.

And for the record, Fry and Bender is one of my favorite shippings on Futurama (I like it in the friendship sense only, of course).


Besides Fry and Bender, I also like the ship with Fry and Nibbler (again, they have an interesting friendship, even if Fry only cleans Nibbler's poop and helps him save the universe).  ^^

You're exactly right.

Fry is very friendly towards Zoidberg!


But then again, Fry is (usually) nice towards everyone in general, humans, aliens, and mutants alike.  I love that about his personality.  <3     love

Which is a reason straight girls tend to like the bad boy image to date in daylight (because they look cool), but they prefer a nice guy in bed (because nice guys finish last  wink).

Does anyone else like to ignore the "shippyness" that went on in BBS and pretend Leela went on a date with Fry after TDHAIPT?  Like she said she would in that deleted scene?  Or is it just me..

I tend to work on the principle that they went on a few dates but then Fry did something, or Leela did something and it just fizzled out again. These things happen.  smile

They did not date, but merely fell into an extremely deep friendship with each other that Fry was content to maintain until competition arose two years later. *

March 8th, I believe.

The thing about them dating after TDHAIP, if they did, then that just means the relationship malfunctioned again. The reason they deleted that scene I guess was that they wanted to be more subtle in implying what might've happened.

I think Xanfor hit the nail on the head there. Fry probably figured he was making progress but didn't want to push it too much for fear of screwing up/making Leela mad. At least until Lars showed up.

Yeah, that makes sense to me.  ^^

And apparently, I need to watch the deleted scenes from that episode again.  I forgot Leela said that.  O.O

I've been redesigning.

If anyone wants themselves added to the shippers' table, tell me, and I'll battle the fierce wiki-code beast of lore to put them there.

Oh, that's neat!!  ^^

You can add my name to that list, for Fry and Leela.  (put me in teal, though)


I wonder why there isn't very many options on the left side of the table....

I still think that if Leela and Fry were dating after The Devil's Hands, there'd be a reference to that in BBS. Of course, it still leaves open the possibility that they went out exactly once, and Fry screwed it up somehow.

Oh and Xanfor, I like your explanation for the whole Fry/Leela mess in BBS.  It makes sense.

I'm sorry, Mistress, I'm afraid I can't do that.

There's nothing wrong with your eyelashes, however. In fact, they're quite nice eyelashes. It's just that you need to be a sysop on the wiki in order to unlock pages, a status that I, despite my grievous workings, have been thus far unable to achieve.

However, since it's taking so long, I'll see if I can attempt to draw this imperative situation to a sysop's attention.
