What are the green flakes on the left of the screen? Like, rising out of Leela's head. Ceiling flakes falling?

I've just realised that the last three images posted by TLF have been met with a smart comment from me.
I'll shut up now.

Fun fact: while I was typing this, my phone tried to autocorrect "have" into "Ubersexual".  hmpf

Nah, it's all good. Don't shut up tongue

Just had to think of the Parasite's lost phrase : "..and you said it without spewing crumbs at me". Seems we have a "before that phrase" image here big grin wink
Those are some massive crumbs!

Would love to Shut In! Lol, that's why I tend to post with pictures. Also nice pick up with the items on, although I don't think the phone and paper are intentional, I think the slurm and coffee are.

Yep, the professor is doing some crazy-ass experiment and it's causeing the ceiling to fall around them (not that they're paying much attention to it)

You want analysis of still caps?


(From 300 Big Boys)

It's Fry and Leela (without Bender!) Enjoying a nice date? I remember when I first watched this, there was doubt that this was even meant to be any form of progress between this ship - but then I realised the episode is the one after The Farnsworth Parabox where Fry gets a 'yes' to his date proposal.
So it's very much intentional - perhaps a little build-up towards TDHAIP, but I like how cute and innocent the moment is between the characters - however, I also think this is why they were so off/on from this point to Overclockwise; Leela enjoys these moments with Fry, but is so comfortable with it she doesn't want to push the relationship further - she wants to be in control and perhaps falling in love is something beyond her control and she doesn't want her life to be unpredictable (as was made terribly clear in OCW), and Fry is a bundle of unpredictability and impulsiveness- so there's a reason for taking so long for her to accept a commitment. I'mma stop there otherwise I could go on all day, anyone else have points to add?

... also I love the fact that they forgot to give Leela a seat to sit on tongue

Oh that's adorable! Kind of a blink-and-you'll-miss-it moment though - I had to watch 300 Big Boys again just to catch it. Not that that's a bad thing. That episode is hilarious ("Precious hamburgers?" - "PRECIOUS AMBERGRIS!!!")

Actually, Amy and Kif were pretty cute there too. Amy walking into the party wearing the unprocessed ambergris and boasting about the stink just kills me.

There's another moment between Fry and Leela which is just adorable too. At the end, when he's saving them all from the fire, Leela's frozen looking all kick-ass and angry (like she's gonna kick that fire's butt) and Fry just casually blows out a little flame on her dress. Understated but awesome.

Totally agree with this. I think that's been one of the big obstacles between Fry and Leela all along - especially re Leela and control. Bi-iiiiggg issue with her. She actually has a throwaway line in The Honking which cracks me up, but also illustrates her character pretty well. She says something like "Well, goodnight. I have to go make my dinners for the next month and then freeze them." Which is like, the most boring way to spend your evening, but is something Leela would actually do. Whereas you just know Fry gets up in the morning and finds out he forgot to buy cereal and the milk turned into yoghurt again. They can be a great influence on each other but their personality types are completely different, and that's gotta make things difficult sometimes. Like in Overclockwise.

Anyway, I can understand Leela's hesitation in making things official. She strikes me as the type to choose her head over her heart, plus there's the danger of losing Fry completely if she moves them out of friendzone and it goes wrong. Not to mention the sheer uncertainty of a relationship with Fry. Whereas Fry definitely thinks if you love someone you should just jump in feet first and see what happens.

Wow, that is funny about the lack of seating. Fry does look as if he's in mild agony due to all that caffeine, though. Something in the eyes...

That's only like his third coffee or something!  laff

I thought he was just making gooey eyes at Leela. Because he's alone with her in a date-type situation and she's giving him her undivided attention? He looks happy to me!

Perhaps for some people it's not much of an effort.  I just tried it on a table roughly 75cm high, and though it wasn't really any strain on the thighs, etc, it was rather hard on the knees.

Yup. It all depends on how much muscle you've got in your legs too. Someone accustomed to benching 100 lbs with all their leg muscles, for example, would have little to no issue standing like that for a short time without using their arms to support them. Besides, her arms aren't raised in a forced hunch, indicating they're not being used to prop her up. I wasn't actually trying to analyze this cap. It's a silly drawing goof. laff

That's why the "Deep Horse Stance" excercise known in Eastern Martial Arts features an acribic, detailed describtion where the knees have to be (exactly in a line over the toes..the knees may not be in front of them, nor more on the outside). When your knees start to hurt, it usually means you are standing the wrong way, putting unhealthy strain on them, even causing damage in the long run. Only the outer upper leg muscles may get tired.

(So, that was another sports lesson from Professor Hein big grin )

Yep, you were not trying to analyse it. Unfortunately, your post was read by someone much more eager to analyse these things (means: me)  wink Sorry, girl, but I cannot spare you another lesson wink
Benching 100 lbs is normally not really a big feat, as 100lbs is usually well below a persons body weight.  Should you weight 100 lbs, a one legged knee bend will usually already put that weight on one leg alone.

So, dear kids, that's the end for now, I hope you all learned something today wink

I had a long-winded rebuttal to that seemingly egotistical and condescending statement that's got some holes, but forget it. I'm not wasting my time. This isn't the "how legs work" thread after all, it's the shipping thread, delivering all ship, all the time, on time. It'd be best to go back to that before we get snarled at by someone. smile

 laff

And now let's draw us a comparison!

Anthology of Interest I


Free Will Hunting


One is canon, the other is not. Both are fanservice, both are throwaway gags.
Both have Leela laying her hand somewhere on Fry (although the second one it's a comforting pat), but she's still instigating the touching while Fry just kicks back and relaxes.

So does that mean that Leela is more 'impusive' now? Will we see her doing crazy impulsive things like buying boots with a crazy green stripe? Woo! Never know what she's going to do next!

For the scrunchie:
Because Fry lost the handcuffs key the last time, and -after Leela had to wait too long for a rather embarassing rescue- she insisted on a fixation device she could wriggle herself out in case of an emergency.

For the wrist computer:
Explanation cannot be posted in public... tongue

It also has Tetris! The biggest surprise to me is that in the first shot, it's at Leela's apartment but the second it's at Fry's sty, which I thought just had a twin bed with half a fitted sheet and full drool stains. Perhaps Leela's become more Morgan Proctor than impulsive.

Just another month and a half 'til I'll actually get to see any of the new stuff. Even if it's just a throwaway gag, I'll take it!

I think it's just Fry having bought a more decent bed and doing some minor cleaning up for the occasions his GF spends the night in his place.

Of course Fry is characterised as being a slob, but that kind of rules does not have to apply 100% of all scenes. Sometimes, a rather normal demeanor and behaviour makes more sense for the characters.
And -as these two are lying rather casually next to each other, the scene bearing a "let's not make a big fuzz about it" mood- a normal setting (rendering the place to a halfway decent state and getting a proper bed) just seems more fitting, more natural for that scene instead of making some "slob jokes".

I don't know what the discussion was exactly as I still have yet to see Free Will Hunting ( eek ) but a strong man can do many things in many positions if determined enough flirt And that has been futurefreak's advice of the day.

Where there's a will there's a way. And Fry seems to have a strong will, twelve years of nothing and then bam! twice in one day.

LOL I humor myself with heavy metal quotes. laff

BTW is the career chip the same as the "sex monitoring chip" nixon talked about on freedom day?

Well, the after-party has just begun for Halloween. Zombies don't simply transform back into normals overnight. wink

Now then, to the ship. Perhaps Leela has gotten more impulsive like the What If Machine showed us. Does this mean that other What If scenarios can partially or fully be realized in future episodes? Maybe, maybe not. But recall that Leela was pretty overdone in terms of impulsiveness during that ToI episode. So with that all in mind, I tend to agree with Eggs on this one; she's more Morgan Proctor than impulsive. Leela's opened up in the romantic relationship department and I think that while Leela's place is cleaner and such, maybe it's a change of scenery and filth that makes the night more edgy and thrilling for them both. Who can say? Some folks are into some really kinky stuff.

Isn't it obvious? Leela is tenderly wiping Fry's nose for him. She just forgot a tissue!

Fry does get beaten by Leela pretty frequently in the series. Let's see, off the top of my head she smacks him around in My Three Suns and in Bender Gets Made. In the latter it was by mistake, but he still gets a beat down. Hmm, some mutual slapping is done in Over Clockwise, too. Perhaps pain is a significant feature of their romance.

A little late, but Prof Hein: regarding bad knees. I must disagree. I have had to unfortunately endure several years of knee pain, and the doctors have explained that this is common amongst women because of our hip-to-knee ratio (the "Q angle" I believe it's called). I've gone through countless hours of physical therapy, even before my knee surgery, and nothing has really worked.

It really, really sucks.

Sorry to hear that sparky, I hope you're taking something for it? ... that doesn't make you too loopy? (Mum's got bad knees and was given painkillers that made her loopy for a while, before she went back and got ones that didn't make her loopy cause she was freaking us all out a bit - also turned out it was her hip giving her grief that had pain transfer to the knee)

Anyways, prayers and hugs go out to you <3

Not sure which thread is the appropriate one, but as the theme has been mentioned here:

Most will remember the planned but not produced episode of Fry and Leela's son from the future, travelling back in time, acting and talking backwards. An interesting story premise, with obviously big difficulties to choreopraph the interacting of backwards and forwards time characters.

Well...turns out they did something similar in family guy (episode "Yug Ylimaf"), when Stewie's time machine inverts the flow of time, leaving just Stewie and Brian unaffected.
The went for a seemingly lazy, but yet efficient approach:
In the key scenes, the backwards characters just talked normally. (E.g. Lois picking Stewie up, saying "Time for a new diaper", and the realisation suddenly dawing to Stewie that he can expect a really unpleasant experience wink ).

So, the "let's just act the backward in time character act normally in important key scenes" did in fact really work.
