Hey, don't get me wrong, there is a slim chance of it if Leela would give him a chance, I'm just saying that in TKOS, they wouldn't have gotten married if the time skips never occured.

True, without having the ability to move stars, Fry couldnt have written his love message in the sky.

But at the end of Farnsworth's Parabox she says that they can go out on a date. Who knows what could have happened if the Series had survived longer?

On the topic subjet, in Japan First names are written last and last names are written first. I can only presume that Mutants do the same thing.

Maybe they are descended from Godzilla and Hideki Matsui and other Japanese mutants. Who knows?

Or much more likely they wanted a distintive culture to set them apart from the surface dwellers.

Hi! I'm fairly (ok, very) new here, but I wondered whether you guys knew what Leela's full name is a reference to? It hasn't been mentioned in this thead, but I am sure someone else (except me) must have noticed it. Also I wondered if Phillip J Fry was a passing homage to Phillip K Dick?   wink

Welcome to PEEL!  Actually, Fry's 1st name only has 1 l.  Philip J. Fry.

It's a nod to a symphony called "Turangalila" by Olivier Messiaen.

Oh my, no.  His name is a tribute to the late, great Phil Hartman.

Could you look at Fry and think Curtis?  I just didn't fit anyway.

It's composed of the two Sanskrit words "Turanga" and "Lila" and means lovesong, hymn to joy, time, movement, life, death and some other things I forget right now.

Well, the Turangalila symphony have been debated about a million times here on PEEL during the years, so eventually some of it find it's way to your memory banks (however old they are).

Caught in a dead-end job with a clueless boss, overweight and losing your hair? Believe me it's not all it's cracked up to be.  wink

Nah, I missed my chance to perform in Turangalila by being the National Youth Orchestra in the wrong year.

10,000 polls, wow.

Anyway does it say anything in the DVD commentary about the last name issue?

Commentaries aren't something you watch, they're something you experience and by experience I mean hear. They're audio tracks. smile However, I myself wouldn't know as they don't CC the commentaries. No they think you're more interested in what the show is saying. Nevermind, you could watch the ep without commentaries. Geez!

One question, if Fry and Leela were to get married how would Leela change her name?
Mrs:

Turnaga Fry,

Leela Fry,

Turnaga Leela Fry,

Leela Turnaga Fry,
 
Or would she just keep her last name?

She's a modern and independent women, I'm sure she'd keep her own lastname.

Perfectly plausible, if a boring direction to go in.

If the series were going to be revived that is.

I always thought the surname before the given name thing was kinda cool.
