Oh. Shipping is slang. I see now.

I kinda don't want Leela and Fry to be together but that's just my jealousy talking. tongue I think it'd be cool if they were together so they could be happy.

After watching the newest episode, it's clear that they aren't in love at the moment. Despite all the events of the previous episodes. They both aren't ready.

If they keep going on adventures and spend more time together, that might change.

I think Fry and Leela love each other (that is, I'm positive that Fry loves Leela, and I see no evidence of emotional backtracking on Leela's part since her declaration in "Into the Wild Green Yonder" (and reaffirmation in "Rebirth")), but I have no idea if that is the same as being in a relationship. Hopefully the writers clear this all up in "Overclockwise."

I still have my hopes that the whole of season 6 was them being a little unsure about the relationship (much like the viewers) and that the finale "Overclockwise" will feature them finally confronting and have "the talk". Spoiler from the episode follow with further thoughts.


I think there's some hardcore shipping in that episode.

I posted this in another thread, but it really should go here as well.

Maybe all these 21st century references and technologies are part of a larger plot arc. In a future episode, we'll likely see Leela walking by herself through the PE ship, only for part of the bulkhead to slide away, a female Nibblonian with an eyepatch say "No, I think she's just dreaming," and then everything return the way it was. Then Bender, along with all the other robots, will start suffering mysterious CPU process threads, seemingly caused by a patch being installed onto a digital reality. As it'll turn out, the Brainspawn have managed to destroy reality in a battle subsequently erased from human memory, and the entire universe is running as a hologrammatic simulation extracted from Fry's memories, hence the numerous contemporary references. The robots are the only ones who realize this, however, hence the patch to try and distract them from their suspicions, and of course, the heavy Bender-centric nature of this season's episodes and the introduction of a "cloud" plane that only robots can enter. Leela, meanwhile, pregnant with Fry's child, the only one who can defeat the Brainspawn and restore the universe, has been kidnapped by the Nibblonians and kept physically safe, plugged into the same virtual simulation that everyone else is living in, but in order to keep psychological indications of her pregnancy from showing, they've had to mask her feelings for Fry so that she is not aware of how their relationship should be progressing.

You'll see. This all makes perfect sense.

'A' for effort at least, Xanfor. Or is that an 'E'? tongue (It would make a pretty interesting fic, though, for what it's worth.)

I still have my hopes that the whole of season 6 was them being a little unsure about the relationship (much like the viewers) and that the finale "Overclockwise" will feature them finally confronting and have "the talk".

I still don't know if

At any rate, I'm hoping a few episodes prior to "Overclockwise" have shippy elements. My money's on "Law and Oracle" or "Fry Am the Eggman" (or maybe even "Cold Warriors"), but this is pure speculation and based on absolutely none of the Countdown material or interviews or anything. My opinion of those episodes will not be affected by the level of shippiness, but it would be nice to see Fry and Leela's relationship get some play before the Big Damn Finale episode.

I'm sure the phrase is what it sounds like. May be wrong, but that's my impression.

Kicked your ass. tongue

Seriously, though, I hope I didn't make you think that I was taking issue with anything you were posting; I agree with your points entirely. The, uh, impassioned tone I employed in the previous post was mostly the result of pent-up frustration with the way the writers have dealt with the ship in the past.

Topic: Uh...I watched "Love and Rocket" yesterday. For some reason, I think that this is perhaps the cutest Fry/Leela moment in an episode that is chock full of 'em.



(I just like the way Fry is slouching a little and Leela lifts him up. I can't even explain it, really.)

"My love is stronger than the vast majority of explosions!"

(That reminds me: He's said it a whole bunch, but I think my favorite instance of an "I love you" from Fry to Leela has to be the almost-shy declaration in "The Late Philip J. Fry." Just sayin'.)

Especially from Leela. And preferably one that's not interrupted by, like, a wormhole or something.

I think that's a possible, nay, probable finale.

I started getting the episodes when I was perhaps 10, when they started showing up on the net. Since then I've been addicted. So, yes.

You guys went through a microcosm of everything that was said about F/L before S6 started, which makes it a little sad that all of that is still applicable. To add to that point, I state that The Late Philip J. Fry would have been a lot funnier without the F/L angle and, if it ultimately didn't really forward it, I'd prefer if future episodes like it just go full comedy.

Maybe more epic, but the shippy storyline made it much more epic, beautiful and sad. Without it I wouldn't have cried at the end.

On another note, Jurassic Bark would have worked much better without Seymour.

It might have been funnier, but I don't think it would have been anywhere near as brilliant, and certainly not as emotionally resonant. That's like saying that "The Luck of the Fryrish" would have been funnier without the twist of Yancy naming his son after Fry, or that "Time Keeps on Slipping" is too much of a downer and a tease with the Fry/Leela stuff. What is so great about an episode like TLPJF is that its sci-fi hilarity is inextricably linked to the romance, and that the former is granted much more dramatic weight because of the latter.

If you are to steal my ideas, at least post them before I post mine... I believed you missed a universe on your lil' journey.

I was a bit distracted by this mountain of skulls at one point. Perhaps I pondered the real estate market there for a few minutes too long.

If so, just make sure you don't do anything disgusting, like have sex with your own grandmother. Cuddling is acceptable, but that's it.
