What? Nononono no no upwards, yeah there will be difficult times and moments (if Benders prediction from Overclockwise is anything to go by!)

... speaking of which, have we gone through the reasons for slaps yet?

Unless Fry slapped Leela for supposedly eating him :P, then I think we've only seen the first slap. Unless Fry finds out about Leela trying to seduce Zapp but I don't think that's it...

I don't think Fry actually knows about that at all xD Well we can only wait. (Just had this horrible thought that she leaves him at the altar, but if we get a marriage (or attempted marriage) it'll either be at the end of the season or even later)

You REALLY like that pic, right? wink
Damn straight.

...Wait, are you stalking me?

Although I don't like it quite as much as this one:

I dont think it will be the alter thing cause Leela would have made some emotion towards that and Fry may have died...

Should find out soon though, as the slaps were close to eachother..

A bit like how it was in season 6a with TLPJF, I wouldn't be surprised if this is the last really shippy moment this season. There may be little snippets a la SM$M, but nothing more.

...speaking of which, have we gone through the reasons for slaps yet?

Leela slaps Fry first, which leads me to believe that was for his overtures towards Amy--unintentional though they may have been--in "the Butterjunk Effect." Fry slapping Leela may just be from the most recent episode, seeing as how she broke up with him kind of harshly and for somewhat baseless reasons.* It might also be for her seduction of Zapp in "Zapp Dingbat"--but that doesn't make chronological sense, as that indiscretion came before Fry's in "The Butterjunk Effect," and yet Leela slaps him first in "Overclockwise."

There's also the possibility that the slaps aren't specific references to anything in season seven and the writers were just jerking our collective chains with the ending of "Overclockwise"--but it's still pretty fun to try to puzzle this stuff out.

*As a general rule, I don't understand why women on TV are always leaving their significant others FOREVERZ just because they embarrass them once in public. Like, most girlfriends and wives are not that shallow, I don't think. Maybe I'm just sick of seeing that plot device used so often with Homer and Marge on the Simpsons, though; it didn't really bug me in "Fun on a Bun"

A bit like how it was in season 6a with TLPJF, I wouldn't be surprised if this is the last really shippy moment this season.

One of the things I really liked about 6A is that the shippy episodes were quite evenly spaced. You had two really emotional Fry/Leela episodes ("Rebirth" and "The Late Philip J. Fry"), two that relied on their relationship for a subplot ("The Prisoner of Benda" and "The Mutants Are Revolting"), and a few that had cute little Fry/Leela moments that felt natural and did not really affect the episode one way or the other ("In-A-Gadda-Da-Leela," "Attack of the Killer App," and "Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences").

I'd be totally fine if 7A followed that same pattern--and, as such, concede that "A Farewell to Arms" and "Fun on a Bun" would be this season's two super-shippy episodes. "The Butterjunk Effect" would qualify as an episode with a shippy subplot, and "Zapp Dingbat" is an episode that has shippy elements that are well-done but don't accomplish much story-wise. Like, I don't think the writers are deliberately modeling 7A on 6A or anything--but it certainly would not be problematic to me if they were, since I think 6A did a nice job with the shippy stuff (and 7A has certainly been following suit in that regard).

If Fry finds out in one of the next few episodes about Leela's seduction of Zapp then it would make sense.. Also I keep hearing that in a comentary of Overclockwise, when Leela slapped Fry a writer said they knew why she did that as they just started writing season 7a so I can only assume it's for what happened in the Butterjunk Effect..

You know, we might have even reached the end of Bender's sheet at this stage. If you think that it may have been either Fry's apparent death, Leela eating 'Fry' or the Fry/Leela fight that registered the truly horrified faces, then the reconciliation and ORBITAL KISS ~~ was the tender moment on the second sheet.

It's just a tired stereotype of comedy, just like the bumbling arrogant, idiotic male lead, there's the humourless, high-maintenance, sensible female lead.

Erm...no, I was rather refering to the kiss. After all, with the sense of taste in the tongue, Leela DOES in fact taste Fry in that picture.

A toothbrush is high-tech? In one of those Jane Auel novels a Neanderthal character brushes her teeth with some sort of reed or twig. It's prehistorical fiction made into a movie with Darryl Hannah so it must be true!

Or they are aiming for the title "Most ridiculous use of Reset Button of all time" big grin

But on a more serios note:
Season 6 showed their relationship status in a rather ambiguous way. While season 7 so far goes for direct statement, e.g. the official "boyfriend/girlfriend" titles pumpkinpie mentioned.

Yet, the final mentions Fry trying to win Leela for good. So, this implies that maybe not everything will be perfect and lovey-dovey by that time.

Who said a permanent relationship is easy? Keeping the relationship going will be as eventful as the journey to this point. Looking forward to see how this will pan out, although next ep is a Bender focused ep, probably a good thing to spread the shippy out otherwise it'll feel overdone

Seriously?  If you ask me, getting them together in the first place was a bad idea.  Their relationship limbo is actually working out to be even more annoying then Fry pining after Leela in the first place.  Pick one thing, and stick with it, writers.  Being a cocktease stops being cute after a while.

Well...season 7 so far had only episodes that showed them as a couple, or that did not require their relationship status to be mentioned. ImhO, the writers were consistent about these two characters so far.

I wouldn't mind them breaking up if they did it well and did it permanently, because otherwise we're approaching Ross/Rachel levels of ridiculousness at this point.

I would not really appreciate them breaking up, for it'd be a rather pathetic confession on the writers part.

After all, they were not really subtle with the "meant for each other stuff" (moving the stars, coming back from the end of the universe, etc...). To cut a long story short, The authors told the viewers as clearly as possible that these characters will end up together.

And after all those efforts, after all those episodes, they should make the confession :
"Ah...sorry. We made all those preparations, used lots of plot time for it...but then we found out we cannot come up with proper ideas how to make these characters work as a couple" ?

That would bear somehow the vibe as if the Futurama writers acted like the first ones who ever had to write a couple in their show.

About the Season 7 arc:
As far as I remember, the words were "trying to win Leela's heart FOR GOOD!", sounding rather like a "seal the deal" aspect. Which could mean their present relationship status is rather a "Let's see if it works", and the last episode giving proof that it works in the long run, and they will stay together (which does not have to be a wedding).

- To fling
- To have a fling
- To have a fling with somebody

Various interpretations possible.
Though the number of meanings is no indicator for an episode's quality:
- E.g "Fun on a Bun" sounded really stupid, yet that episode was all right.
- "Butterjunk Effect" title did incorporate 5 different episode aspects, yet the episode was rather bad
