Lots of people do.

Not likely.  Remember, Leela was the most unmutated mutant ever born.  As I understand it, aside from the eye (and her purple hair, I suppose), she's pretty much an ordinary human.

As David said, lots of people prefer to get married before doing "it". Failing that there's contraceptives or birth control pills. I'm pretty sure both Fry and Leela are responsible enough to use them.

I don't think Fry and Leela have ever slept together. It sure as hell hasn't been documented anywhere, and I don't think that the time skip prior to their marriage was that long anyway.

Bendersbud! So few morals, lad! Fry and Leela could wait. They're responsible. ..I think..
Anyway, if she DID get pregnant, I doubt it would have taken her two years..

Crapspackle! What kind of question is this? I severely doubt Fry and Leela did it during that time skip time frame, and if they did, I guess we'll never know now.

Only time I think that would have happened would be somewhere in an Anthology of Intrest 1 in Leela's question. As others have said, I don't think very many people sleep with each other before they get married.

I don't think they did, I think it was suposed to be... 
[]= we see it and the crew remembers it
()= what could have happened.

[Fry trying to win Leela's heart] (Fry moves stars to make the message, Leela sees it and realizes how much she really means to Fry) [they get married].

So I really don't think they've ever gone that far with each other, which is why I'd like to see the show revived long enough to see how it should end

While it is possible that some aspect of her mutation causes any pregnancy to take an abnormally long time (The doctor probably wouldn't have picked this up while looking at a baby so it doesn't actually contradict Leela's Homeworld), surely after two years there would be some clue. Even if the pregnancy takes so long that there are no obvious clues after such a long time she must have had a medical check-up in that time which would have found it.

Everyone seems to have forgotten that Fry and Leela have both had sex at different times with with multiple people, none of whom they were married to.  They were even all set to have sex with each other in "Parasites Lost," and they didn't act as if it was going to be a one-night stand.

So unless they had such a whirlwind romance that they didn't have time to have sex before the wedding, I think it would be within the characters' personalities to do it.  But of course it doesn't matter because everyone forgot what happened and it was never brought up again.  And the writers would have had to have been pretty desperate to throw out a pregnancy idea like that.

(from Time Keeps on Slippin')
Leela: "So, how'd you do it?  Drugs in the champagne?  Hypnosis?"
Fry: "Drugs are for losers.  And hypnosis is for losers with big hairy eyebrows.  I don't know what I did to get you to love me, but we're married now..."
Bender:  "Maybe you had to get married because Leela's pregnant!"
(Fry looks hopeful)

No, she's not pregnant.  They wouldn't have made the joke if she was.  Besides, for all the myraid other reasons posted.

thanks for the replies I realise it is not likley but it is a possability. anyone think this would have been a good idea for the last episode?
EDIT: also in TWOF the nibblonians tell fry that the brains attacked a few MONTHS ago and that was in season 3 while the TWOF was all the why at the end of season 4ACV

yes, but by your logic, therefore anything is possibile, eg Leela is actually a frog, fry isnt really a man and hermes frequently spends all of Planet Expresses money at strip clubs then blames it on zoideberg. the point im making is, just because it COULD have happened doesnt mean it DID.

Sure, it's possible.  It's also possible that Leela's mutation makes her sterile, and she can't get pregnant at all.  I see no reason to think that either of these possibilities happens to be true, though.

It's much more likely that Fry and Leela never had sex, or that if they did, she just didn't get pregnant.

It might not be possible, i.e. a mutation causing an incompatible number of chromosomes, like most mules can't have babies...
and a baby with a wrong set of chromosomes, have problems...

Let's look at the facts:

Leela did marry Fry and for some reason they divorced.  Why?

Here's a hint:

Fry: How did I get her to love me?
Hermes: Maybe you are a fantastic lover, Fry?
Amy: No.

or from The Sting

Amazonian: Him, do good snoo-snoo
(Michelle, Morgan, 21 century woman, and radiator seem to disagree.)

Isn't this telling us something?

Anyway, you can say Leela could get pregnant from Zapp, Alcazar, Adalie even William Shatner, but I don't think the writers were willing to have Leela get pregnant anytime soon.  The closes of her being a parent was from "Kif Gets Knocked Up A Notch" where she got Kif pregnant.

somehow i highly doubt her divorcing him had anything to do with his sexual ability. They got married, she couldn't remember how it happened, she assumed it was a trick, she divorced him, end of story. They spelled it out for us in the ep.

I know, but I felt that it needed to be pointed out.  Since, the reason why they married in the first place was Leela seeing Fry's message, which is logical.

Can you come up with a reason why they divorced?

That is what I could come up with.  That or perhaps Leela tricked Fry into getting a divorce.

« Reply #22 on: 06-24-2004 02:40 »

what are you talking about? The episode gave us the reason. She thought she had been tricked into it and no woman alive would stay married to someone they felt tricked them into it. She wasn't in love with him before the timeskip to their wedding, she couldn't remember what went on during the timeskip, which meant after the timeskip was over she didn't love him anymore. So they got a divorce.

Come on, there has to be more to a reason than that.  Wouldn't Fry have to sign something in order for the divorce to be official.  The fact that it cuts to judge whitey granting divorce, has me wonder. "How did Leela get Fry to sign the divorce papers?"  Therefore, she must have tricked him.

Yeah he would have had to sign something. But Leela can pretty much get him to do whatever. If she demanded he sign the divorce papers he would have been crushed but he would have given in simply because it was what she wanted. He loves her enough not to force himself on her. He wouldn't force her to stay married to him if it wasn't what she wanted. it would be like holding her prisoner and he would never do that to her.

That is good point, but why does Fry give the expression of shock, when the divorce is granted.  I can only think that he didn't know what was going on until then.  Fry's known for that.  But I think he would've gone through with it if it made Leela happy

because it was another timeskip. Time skipped from the wedding to the divorce, so he didn't have any memory of having signed any papers. Remeber they act like normal during the timeskips but then have no memory of it.

I don't think it was so much that she still felt she was tricked into marrying him, although that was her first impression.  But I think that was mostly due to the shock of finding herself suddenly married to Fry.  I think the reason for the divorce was because she couldn't remember why she fell in love with him.

I would like to say this is the worst theory anyone's ever come up with. Surely if Leela got pregnant, we would have found out about it in a later episode. There was still a season and a half after this production wise.

Well, for the sake of argument, she could have gotten an abortion in the time slip between their wedding and divorce.  But you're right, it's a stupid theory.   smile

I can't see Amy having one either.  She eventually took responsibility for getting Kif pregnant, even though it wasn't her DNA.

Actually, Leela doesn't consider herself to be human. In "Fear of a Bot Planet", she tells the Robot Judge that Fry "may not have a case, but I'm technically not a human."

Yeah, that was back when she still thought that she was an alien.  In "Leela's Homeworld" we see a flashback of Leela's birth, and the mutant doctor declared her to be "the least mutated mutant ever born."

Back on topic...

I've always assumed that the time skip between Leela rejecting Fry and the marriage was only a few days, at most.  Now, I don't know a whole lot about female anatomy, but I don't think that a woman can find out if she's pregnant within only a few days.  (well, okay, if she's not on her period at that time, it is)

Damn.  I don't *want* this to give me a plot bunny for a fanfic, because it's fairly impossible (even more impossible than time slips and space-roving Globetrotters), but... argh.  There it is.  An idea.  Maybe I'll write it later.

Ok.  This is all simple enough.  Leela thought she was tricked into marrying Fry, so she divorced him.  End of story.  She wasn't pregnant at the time (although she could have been, but the rest of the series made it obvious she wasn't). 

If Fry and Leela were in love, I doubt they'd wait to have sex until they were married (referring to the argument at the top of the page).  Like someone said, they were all set to have sex in Parasites Lost, until Fry got all noble and stuff.  And both of them have had multiple partners, so it's not like they abstain or anything.

This would make an interesting idea for a Futurama movie:

Futurama the movie: Leela's pregnant

main plot: It turns out Leela that isn't quite as normal as the doctor from L's Hw thought. She's pregnant due to her flings with Fry, Zapp, Alkazar, Adalai AND Chas. Not surprisingly, Fry and Zapp are the only fathers to help support Leela's children.

I would be furious if I had paid 10$ to see that. Even a sappy shipper story would be better.

And she never had sex with Chaz. Adlai is somewhat uncertain.
