I thought it was slightly more sweet than it was creepy that Bender made out with Leela to cover for Fry's absence, but maybe that's just me.

Also, that .gif doesn't really look like a blowjob: Leela's enjoying herself far too much. tongue

Well...the present seasons has shown her -well, I refrain from the word "slutty"- but rather willing and eager when it comes to sex.
Though I guess that behaviour is rather meant to represent a "Look at me, I have a relationship" behaviour former long time singles often display.

True, but at the same time I don't think there's gonna be a TON of it. It might be (in terms of how much their relationship is mentioned), more like " The Butterjunk Effect", where it's mentioned a few times, but the plot doesn't necessarily rely on it.

^Yep.
The clip shows the whole PE crew trying to save Leela from mutating.
With her being his girlfriend, Fry has stronger motivations (and seems the most determined in the clip so far): Yet, he still pursues the same goal as anyone else, it's just more personal for him.

So, I guess their relationship will be used for some emotional plot details/to make it more personal. Yet, it will not drive the main plot too directly.

If 7ACV22 is based on "Jack and the Beanstalk" enough, then F/L romance should play a significant role in it.

I'm not usually a fan of this stuff, but here's something interesting I found while rewatching



Fry and Leela were both giving each other a positive stare, as in like happy for Bender maybe? Like how a Mother and Father would usually glare at each other when they see their kid happy.

Just a little nitpicking I decided to do.  tongue

I don't know how to post pictures but, near the end of the episode when they were at Planet Express watching T.V., Fry had his arm around Leela in the first shot.

I love how she jumps protectively in front of Fry in this one:



All episode, he's been fishing for attention from Leela and Bender and not getting any. She might not be good at sympathy but she's always there for him when he might get hurt. Good ol' Leela.

Haha. Someone needs to show sparky that one. She had a fun theory about the "honey pot" in that scene, so she'd likely get a kick out of the cap.  big grin

We are! Seriously though, I forgot all about this thread. I thought it would be packed with stuff when I stopped by, but there's not much. Screencappers! Where are you? We need more images. The end of T : The Terrestial? FALBF? This season has given us some good ship, actually . . .

Yeah, she zones it out when he's just griping but she's protective when he's in danger. It's cute.

Wait, I just realized the last two caps were from two different episodes. Leela shields him a lot, it seems. I like that. It's a nice nod to all the times Fry has done the same for her. (With Lrr, with the space bee, with the ship crashing in Rebirth . . . he's literally used his body as a shield quite a few times. It's interesting to see Leela do the same.)

Had a ship-related thought on the way out. Sorry for the double post, but I caught sight of cartoonlover27's avatar and realized something.

In The Farnsworth Parabox, Fry and Leela's parallel selves mirror each other. Fry's jacket is lime-green (like Leela's) and Leela's hair is red (like Fry's, duh.) Freaky coincidence, or shippy sign?

I thought the coloring was intentional but not necessarily in a shippy way. My first thought was that the writers were simply trying to demonstrate the way the parallel universe operated in relation to the normal Futurama universe by having Fry and Leela's coloring reversed (Parallel Fry's hair was dark like typical-Leela's as well). You may be right, though; it seems very possible.  smile

I hadn't noticed that until you pointed it out, but I really like that she's being more protective of him now, too. I've always thought she needed to do a dramatic, "Love and Rocket"-style sacrifice for Fry at some point, but since that doesn't seem to be in the cards, I appreciate the subtle protective attitude she has towards him.

I did not enjoy the newest episode as much as I had expected. The premise had much more potential than the entire episode. I've always thought since Leela is (if she is) the other, there would have to be some importance to her mutant genetic code. All the episode featured was a parody of "Jack and the Beanstalk", which can never (probably) serve as a good basis for lampooning and furthered Leela's relation with tentacles.

The observation I want to explore further on this thread is how exactly Leela reproduces. This episode was a disappointment as it seems to suggest that Leela would not carry her offspring, but rather lay an egg. That ain't right, that ain't funny, even by science fiction and comedy standards. And I really want to see a canonical knocked-up Leela. I don't want the offspring of the primary couple to be a even less-clever rip of Mork and Mindy (which wasn't remotely intelligent in the first place).

So, here are the facts that I have to support the idea that Leela would lay an egg.
- The most obvious and most recent evidence is Leela's lamentation in "Leela and the Genestalk" where she says it is "bad enough that she occasionally lays an egg". If she lays eggs, that points towards Leela carrying any possible offspring in an egg.
- Munda, nor have any of Leela's ancestors have been shown to be pregnant. Munda didn't appear to have just endured labor or anything when we first saw Leela as a newborn in "Leela's Homeworld", and it seems like that scene occured just after Leela was delivered since the doctor did announce Leela's gender at the beginning of the scene. However, I will add that the doctor who seemed to have delivered Leela did say she was the "least mutated mutant ever born." Though admittedly, in retrospect, that really isn't a total indicator that Leela was born over hatched. I foggily recall (I really don't think so, but its possible) that there was a character in Futurama in the past that said he or she was born but technically hatched.
- This is barely evidence, but I thought it may be worth noting. In "Naturama", Leela did lay eggs as a salmon. Plus she was also a bird. Birds lay eggs, right?
- This last piece of evidence is possibly the most significant since it was so early in the series. In the first act of "Love's Labours Lost in Space", the morning after Leela's unsuccessful date with a man with a "vile lizard tongue", Zoidberg comments that "The female Leela's condition is purely medical. Soon she will drop her eggs and they will hatch and all will be well." Though it seems like it was just supposed to be a funny comment from Planet Express's confused comedian Doctor Zoidberg, I have felt for years that line is foreshadowing something. Maybe now I realize the line is much more literal than I originally though/was hoping for.

I think you might be over thinking it. Leela laying an egg was probably just a one time joke. I mean, yes, most of your evidence is valid, the egg refrence in Love's Labours was just a one time joke as well.

I dislike it when people tell me I'm over-thinking something, but I do think in this case you might be taking lines that were meant as offhand jokes too seriously.

In the case of Zoidberg's line in LLLiS, I feel certain it was not intended as foreshadowing. I may be wrong, of course, but I'd be stunned if that line was anything more than a simple "Zoidberg's a terrible doctor" joke.
I don't think the scene in "Naturama" meant anything either since other characters were also portrayed as salmon/birds. If they had intended that as a sign Leela lays eggs, I believe there would have been some effort to single her out, since otherwise that would imply Amy lays eggs, too.
The fact that Munda wasn't shown pregnant or appearing as though she had just given birth doesn't mean much in my mind either. I agree that the newborn Leela scene occurred just after her birth, but I suppose they'd have means in the future, even in the sewers, to alleviate much of the stress of childbirth.

I also don't think the line in "Leela and the Genestalk" means she'll lay an egg instead of have a typical pregnancy. I just can't imagine it being anything more than a bit of humor that wasn't supposed to be taken as a sign she wouldn't give birth like an average human being.

This episode was a disappointment as it seems to suggest that Leela would not carry her offspring, but rather lay an egg. That ain't right, that ain't funny, even by science fiction and comedy standards. And I really want to see a canonical knocked-up Leela.

I'm not really into the prospect of seeing Leela pregnant or Fry and Leela having children canonically, but I've always thought that if they decided to have kids they would adopt from the orphanarium (I'm basing that idea off of Leela's desire to adopt in "The Cyber House Rules").

Yes I do think Fry and Leela would adopt. I think growing up as an orphan makes Leela feel obligated to adopt. I hope her and Fry do have a child naturally, if they ever do. It'd be cute smile

I don't think Fry and Leela would could adopt. All of the orphans are out-of-stock at the orphanarium since their mass-adopting by Abner Doubledeal (though it isn't so difficult to restock such unwanted goods). Plus I doubt that any kid adopted would be happy to have a cyclops as a mother (I know that is such a cruel statement as any orphan would be overjoyed to have loving parents, but the orphans are not much different from the former orphans that Leela grew up with and have no issue ostracizing somebody for their defect.)

Even though the orphanarium was out-of-stock at the end of "Yo Leela Leela" it probably wouldn't stay that way for long.
Also, I know the orphans had no trouble ostracizing and bullying Leela when she was a child, but I think they would feel entirely different if she came in as a prospective parent who happens to have an interesting career as a starship captain.
In addition, when she came to story time in "Yo Leela Leela" the kids seemed to look up to her and not mind one bit about her eye. I feel like most any of them would be thrilled to be adopted by her, and if not, I think Leela and Fry might consider adopting a mutant child like Sally who definitely wouldn't care about Leela's eye and may even appreciate having a mutant mother.
