-Opening credits-
Now with a 13,000% increase in mutations!

Scene: Planet Express. Fry and Bender sit on the couch. Bender has a beer and Fry has a Slurm. Bender flips through the channels and Fry occasionally sips his drink.

"This is the life, Bender," Fry starts, "A couch, TV, and this new, limited edition, Cherry Red Slurm with 200% more caffeine..."

"Yeah..." Bender agrees.

They sit in silence for a few seconds.

"This is boring." Fry states.

"Howa 'bout a haircut..." Bender suggests, "You DO need a new style."

"Yeah! And maybe Leela will like it...and she will finally go out with me!"

"Keep dreaming..." Bender mumbles.

Scene: Barber shop. The sign has a picture of a small light saber labeled Hairtrimmer 3000 and is labeled: Luke's Saber Cuts--No decapitations since last Tuesday! Bender and Fry come up to the shop.

"Well, Bender, when I come back out, I'll be a changed man..."

"It's just a haircut, dammit!"

"See you on the other side..." Fry says. He walks in.

"Just don't go overboard!" Bender yells.

Time lapse. Bender is outsude tapping his footcup on the sidewalk. Camera shows fry's face, not much hair is in the picture. Bender looks shocked.

"So, Bender," Fry says, "how do I look?"

Bender just gapes. He looks a little worried. "Um..." He starts, "Just phenomanal! Yeah, that..." Bender trys to stop himself from completely falling over from laughter.

"Let's go back and show everyone!" Fry says.

"Whatever you say..."

Cut to Planet Express lounge, where the crew is. Amy files her nails at the table while the Professor tinkers with the tv. Hermes, Leela, and Zoidberg impatiently wait for him to fix the tv.

Bender walks in, then leans back in the door to talk to Fry. "Do I have to do this?"

"Yes!" Fry answers. "Or no 50 dollars!"

Bender mumbles, then says quickly in a very unenthusiastic voice, "Now presenting, Fry's 'wonderful,' 'amazing' new look. Tremble at his 'handsomly' good looks..." Bender puts Wonderful, amazing, and handsomly in air quotes.

Fry walks in and the camera pans the room, showing Amy drop her nail file with a gape, and the Professor fix the TV by hitting it in response to his hair, and Zoidberg falls off the couch.

"Sweet llamas of the Bahamas!" Hermes exclaims.

"Spleesh, Fry!" Amy says.

"Oh, Fry!" Leela yells.

"Wha?" The Professor asks.

"Agh!" Zoidberg exclaims, "Oooh! TV!" He sits and watches.

"Isn't it great?" Fry asks. The camera zooms out to reveal his hairstyle. It is a huge afro with an authentic pick in it. He also had small sideburns. "The sideburns are too much, huh? They come off." He peels the phony side burns off and yelps.

"Fry, that is the most ridiculous-" Leela says, being inturrupted by Bender.

"Most ridiculously awesome hairstyle ever!"

"Bender, it is horrible," she whispers.

"So? Let him love it. Have people laugh! It is FUNNY."

"Ah..." She agrees. "Well, with that, uh, good news, Fry...anything else new?"

"Actually-" Fry starts.

"Good new everyone!" the Professor blurts out, inturrupting Fry.

"Couldn't you have waited 'til I fin-"

"No!" The Professor answers, inturrupting again, "Anyway, I have made a new invention. Everyone follow me to my lab..."

Everyone shrugs and follows him out the door, although he walks so slow they pass him.

Scene: Farnsworth's lab. The crew is standing next to a rectangular table with a metal box in the center. The professor just makes it into the door and everyone groans.

"It'll take an hour for him to get here!" Amy complains.

"Hold on!" Bender says he runs over, takes the old professor and puts him at the table. Everyone cheers.

"What are you all doing here, dammit!" the senile old man states.

"The good news?" Hermes asks.

"Oh...right...oh! The box..." He says as he reaches for the metallic box. He punches a few numbers into the lock number pad and it opens. Everyone waits patiently to see the invention. "Here they are!" He holds up about 6 watches that had a large screen on them.

"What are dey?" Hermes asks with his thick Jamaican accent.

"I call them...Telewatches!"

"Oh...my...God...TV on a watch?! Gimme, gimme!!" Fry exclaims.

"No, dimwit!" The Professor yells, "they made that technology in 2438! These are teleportation devices!"

"Oh.." Fry sighs.

"What do we need these for, Professor?" Leela asks.

"Well, as you know, you almost get killed everyday by your many deliveries..."

The crew mumbles.

"Shush!" The Professor snaps, "These are for your very dangerous missons. Only use them in emergencies!" 

"Would a trip to the liquor store count as an emergency?" Bender asks.

"NO! If you over use them, the results could prove fatal...oh my yes...fatal. It would be a shame if one of you...died!" The Professor pulls out a ray gun and everyone screams. He randomly points it at Leela and she attempts to hit him.

"Leela!" Fry says as he jumps in front of Leela, just in time for her to throw a punch, which landed in his gut. The Professor fires and it shoots in Fry's direction. Hermes calmly walks over to the crazy man and says, "Professor! You didn't take your homocidal pills today, did you?"

"Of course I did! Now move so I can shoot that annoying, waste of space lobster!

"Hey!" Zoidberg answers.

"Come wit me, Farnsworth."


The crew is shaken up. Amy is under the table and Zoidberg is in the trash. Fry is in fetal position holding his stomach on the ground with Leela standing over him.

"Fry...I'm so sorry!" Leela apologizes, "I know you had good intentions for saving me, but maybe you should let me defend myself..."

"Ow...sure...I guess..."

"Um...Fry?" Leela stqrts.


She points to her head. Fry touches his hair to find out his new hairstyle was destroyed by the Professor's wild shot, and it was back to normal, but with some smoke coming out of it.



"I got it to impress you! Now you'll never like me..."

"Fry, no offense, but you wouldn't impress a gay mouse." Bender butts in.

"He's right," Leela adds.

Fry just mopes as he hears Zoidberg let out a whoop. "Friends! Come! Look at these! We shall use them, maybe?"

Everyone puts one on.

"I don't know..." Leela says. "Let's wait for a deliv-"

"Good new everyone!" The Professor blurts out. "I am not homocidal!"

"Yay!" Fry cheers.

"And on that note, you will get to go to the planet Z-X130, othewise known as the planet of homocidal snails!"

The whole crew has their mouths open.

"But that is in the Doom Universe!" Leela exclaims, "We may not make it off, let alone  there passing giant space monkeys and spaceship to spaceship salesmen!"

"Oh well!" The Professor says. He takes out a remote control that scoops up Amy, Fry, Leela, Bender, and Zoidberg in a giant butterfly net.

"Yay!" Zoidberg exclaims, "I get to go!" Just then, a trapdoor somehow appears and he falls out. "Aww...."

Scene: The deck of the Planet Express ship. Leela steers while Fry and Bender throws cards into Fry's shoe. Amy sits at the controls trying to fix a minor problem with the ac for the seat.

"Amy, you done yet?"  Fry asks, "I wanna hog the AC."

"Spleesh, Fry! That's the 19th time you've asked! Lay OFF!"

"Geez, you dont have to go mood swing on me..."

Fry and Bender giggle. They continue to throw the cards. Fry misses, while Bender has a perfect stack in the shoe.

"Bender, how do you do that?"

"It is called, luck, me being great, and the PrecisioTarget software in my system."

"Robots get all the good cheats..."

"That's why they don't let us compete in archery or shooting at the Olympics."

"They wouldn't let me in either after that archery experiment."

"Yeah..." Bender says rubbing his behind, "My ass still hurts!"

They laugh and the scene cuts to Amy and Leela chatting.

"Look at them...such..." Leela starts.



"So how is it between you and Fry, I mean after he pretty much blew you off for that bimbo."

"I was never jealous of you and Fry!"


"Nevermind..." Leela says. "But we havn't really talked alot. He has been trying to make it up to me. A little "hero" act there, a little compliment here...even that ridiculous hairstyle."

"That was Stupid Age fashion gone stupider."

"Yeah, but he thought it was cool. And he did it to impress me. Or attempt to, at least."

"Yeah...hold on." She tightens a screw on the ac vent and the air flows. "Fry the ac is-AGGH!!"

Fry runs over to the chair putting his face in front of it,and in the process pushing Amy down. She mutters something in Chinese and walks over to the other side of the deck, whispering to Leela,"He sure has low awareness of others sometimes..."

"That's for sure..."   Leela thinks.

Scene: Cargo hold of the ship.  Fry and Bender try out their teleporters...

"You sure we should be doing this, Bender? I mean the Professor said these things could kill us, and the next time we use it it could kill us? What if we run out?"

"Eh, who cares. We always almost die and we always almost get out in time. Now to our cabin for some magazines and booze for Bender..." He pushes a button on his watch and he disappears. Fry gasps at the display. Bender soon returns with a stack of magazines and a 6-pack of beer in his chest cabinet. "Ahh.." he says, "What a relief not to walk..." He pulls out a small box and pushes a button, having it expand to a folding chair with the words "Bite my shiney metal ass!" on the back. He turns to Fry, "Can you go get me a tv?" Fry answers."Yeah!" He, like Bender, punches buttons into the watch and leaves. He comes back with the small television from their cabin.

Cut to deck. Leela and Amy are talking. An "incoming transmission" message appears on the screen. Leela presses some buttons and the Professor's head appears on screen. "Leela!"


"I forgot to tell you that you can only use those teleportation devices 20 times before  it poses a threat to you!"

"Ok, Professor!" Leela answers.

"Goodbye...." The Professor walks off screen. "Zoidberg, get out of my mutant fishtank!"

The screen goes blank.

"Ok..." Amy says.

"Well, we're here. We'd better tell the guys."

"I will..." Amy moans

"Thanks, Amy." Leela says.

Amy leaves the deck and Leela sighs. "More time to talk to myself..." Leela says.

"What am I going to do with Fry..." Leela starts. Just then, Fry teleports inside the deck, but is silent to hear Leela. "He is so immature sometimes. Ok, all the time. I know he means well, though. After that incident with Lars, I have some feelings for him...but obviously he didn't share the same for me seeing how he blew me off for...Colleen..."

Fry listens. And listens. He finally has enough and teleports to the outside of the door. He leans up against the sliding door and lets a tear roll down his cheek. "How could I have done that to her?" He whispers. "I finally get her to have feelings for me and I blew it by ignoring her and going out with another woman. I am a jerk sometimes...I-" Suddenly the door behind him slides open and Bender and Amy come out. Fry quickly wipes his face on his jacket sleeve.

"Fry, Bender told me that you were fooling around with the telewatches!"


"Do you know you could've killed yourself?"


"Shut up!" Amy snaps, "How many times have you used it?"

Fry bites his lip. "Uh...6."

"Oh...ok." Amy walks in the flight deck again with Bender behind her. Fry slowly follows.

"Actually, 3 times that number." He thinks.

"Leela-" Fry starts.

"Fry, no small talk," Leela says, "We need to deliver these banapples to the capitol and get the hell out of here!"

"Oh...ok." He says, disappointed.

"And by the way, Fry," Leela starts, "The Professor said we can only teleport 20 times."

Fry has his mouth open.

"You didn't waste them, did you?"

"No. I only teleported once." Fry lies.


"I can't tell her the truth," Fry thinks, "She will kill me and call me irresponsible again. But I feel like I'm more immature and irresponsible by lying."

The foursome walk off the ship each carrying a backpack stuffed with banapples. They trudge onto the dirt ground heaving them.

"Who new apples crossbred with bananas could be so heavy!" Amy complains.

"I don't know why you meatbags are whining. These are so easy to carry." Bender says.

"Bender, can you carry them?"

He looks at them and thinks. "Ok," he agrees, "but it'll cost 20 bucks. Each."

They all mumble and press 20 dollar bills into his hand and give Bender the fruit. Then they enjoy the view. It looks like a mix of Amazonia and Kif's planet with a bit of Mars. The sky is green and the trees are 100s of feet high. Fry looks back at Leela while she looks up, but quickly looks away.

"Wow..." Leela says.

"Yeah," Fry answers, "Just like the giant redwood trees..."

"Fry, those trees were cut down to make Super Mega-WalMart. The last living one is ten times the size of these."


"Let's get moving." Amy says.

The foursome slowly tread across the terrain to a montage with the song "Colonel Bogey." They cross a log and Fry falls off but lands only 3 feet down. Bender drinks some alcohol and burps, making half the forest visable catch on fire. Them walking up a mountain and Fry trips rolling down. Fry running from mosquitos. Leela kicking down a tree. Amy stops and says she broke a nail. They finally stop at some giant mushrooms.

"You know, we have been walking for hours and we still have not seen any snails willing to kill us...but a lot of logs, mountains, and mosquitos do..." Fry says.

"Fry," Leela starts,"That is a good thing."

"Yeah, but I want to see them with little rocket packs and deadly ray guns coming at us at the 100s..."

"Pshh..."   Amy says,"That isn't what happens!"

"How do you know, no one has ever come back alive or mentally healthy enough to tell what they look like." Bender says.

"Sweet, I could be right for once!" Fry exclaims. Leela stares at Fry. "What?" He looks behind him and sees hundreds of snails on jetpacks with ray guns coming at him. "Oh, crap."

Scene: Barber shop. The sign has a picture of a small light saber labeled Hairtrimmer 3000 and is labeled: Luke's Saber Cuts--No decapitations since last Tuesday! Bender and Fry come up to the shop.

From this point on, I knew this would be good.

Welcome to PEEL, Smarty!  Well written, and really funny.  Love the snails!  You've got a touch for detail that really adds, like your "banapples".

What ho? Rumour has told me that here be jokes... and they seem to hold true! Much better than what I wrote first time out, I'll tell you that much. And also, not to offend or insult in any manner, but because what I wanted more than anything as a beginning writer was tips on what to do, I'll mention the scrose. It's not a big deal, but typically it's done sort ofone way or the other. Very good work, though, don't misunderstand me. Looking forward to part II. smile

And here it is...the next and final part to Haircuts, Teleporting, and Homicidal Snails...


"Sweet, I could be right for once!" Fry exclaims. Leela stares at Fry. "What?" He looks behind him and sees hundreds of snails on jetpacks with ray guns coming at him. "Oh, crap."

-Opening Credits-
You’re still here?

Everyone screams like it was the end of the world. They tremble at the influx of a huge number of seemingly harmless snails, except for the small jetpacks and extremely deadly ray guns.

“How did you know, Fry?” Leela asks.

“I dunno,” Fry starts, “but if you havn’t noticed, I sometimes have an overactive imagination.”

“You think?” Amy says, “Where did they even get those things?”

“Telemarketers?” Fry answers.

“Fry…” Leela starts, but before that, a blast hits the tree next to her. It disintegrates in seconds. They all stare at it with fearful expressions.

“Cheese it!” Bender exclaims, running off in the direction of the ship.

“Big baby!” Amy yells, when three more blasts hit the ground and trees surrounding her, “Wait, I think I left my makeup in the ship!”

“I’m with you, Amy,” Leela says. Then she looks back to see Fry scared, “Let’s go, Fry!”

The two, Leela and Fry of course, run after Amy, who was running after Bender, who was probably off the planet by now. They dodge trees, swing over rivers of dangerous radioactive waste, and even go past a giant T-Rex, which successfully tempts Fry go back. Then it roars and attempts to eat him, but Leela pulls him out of the way first. They finally catch up to Amy, who is still looking for Bender. They keep running, looking back, and running more. They can still see tons of snails behind them, as far as they are, but they will catch up. They run, and look back more, risking bumping into a tree or falling down an acid creek, but they end up bumping into Bender, who is standing with his arms crossed.

“Bender!” They all yell.

“What?” he asks.

“MOVE!” Amy yells, “We are going to d-i-e!”

“And that is news how?” he answers. They blankly stare at him while the snails slowly, but surely, come forward in the forest. “And we havn’t even delivered the package yet. AND I want these banapples OUT of my chest cabinet, because they are starting to get squishy. My internal AC can only hold out for so long.”

“That is very responsible of you, Bender!” Leela says.

“I have never been responsible in my lifetime, Big Boots!” He replies, “Hermes promised me a raise if we actually delivered the package this time.”

“Oh…” Leela answers, “How do we get there?”

The foursome think about it, when a glare hits Leela in the eye. “Ow!” she yells.

Bender laughs hysterically as he shines the watch to glare into her eye.

“Bender! Stop it with that…watch…the telewatches!”

“This is no time to think about watching TV Leela!” Fry answers.

“For the second time today, Fry, they are teleportation devices. Remember? You used them once?”

“Once! He said he used it-“ Amy starts, but Bender muffles her mouth by covering it with a large leaf. Fry looks back at Bender trying to keep Amy quiet. He sighs and starts to speak, “Yeah, I remember. I used it—“ He is cut off by a blast. They all scream again. Leela starts punching buttons into her watch. She mumbles numbers to herself as she looks at the UPPS (or Universal and Planetary Positioning Unit for those who don’t have one) on her wrist-thing.

“Okay, everyone press 50 43 78 112 on their watches!” she orders.

“But I—“ Fry starts, abruptly interrupted by Leela, and at that time the snails completely surrounded them.

“Now!” She yells. They all press the commands into their telewatches and are beamed out. Right after, all the snails fire at once, making a huge explosion and killing them all.

Scene: Outskirts of the capitol city, Capitol City. After a second, the crew is beamed in. They dust themselves off and hear a large explosion, which you can see in the background above the large trees. Fry shrugs while he stares at his watch.

“Nineteen total…” Fry thinks, “I better not get into a life threatening situation…yeah right.”

“Wow,” Leela says, “They worked! And I found the right coordinates to the front gate, which is in front of…us…”

They all stare at the 30 foot high golden gate, which was golden, encrusted with rubies, sapphires, emeralds, diamonds, and any priceless and valuable jewel known to existence. But inside was the real eye-popper.

“Behold!” Bender exclaims, “The city no person has ever described…obviously until now. The buildings are made of silver, and have clear, diamond windows. They are much taller than the buildings in New New York, and there are about 5 times as many. The streets are not lined with the litter of the Earthican cities, but paved with platinum. The benches, which are made from the wood of the trees surrounding this great city, are long and perfect. It is said that the trees from this planet are the most valuable than anywhere else in the universe.

The cars are much more high tech than the ones anywhere known, and run on the special fumes emitted from the trees. The water is the cleanest in all of everywhere, and comes from the Great Spring in the center of the city. Their food is grown here, but some is imported by the greatest delivery services, who in which many do not return home or make it off, due to the extremely dangerous threat on the outside—the Snails. The Snails pose the largest threat to us, and because of that, no one is allowed to leave the city. Ever. They only wait for someone to free them from the deadly beasts, so they may roam their planet once more.”

“Wow, Bender, that was beautiful!” Amy says softly.

“How did you know all that?” Fry asks.

“From this golden plaque I stole off of the fence.”

They lose their interest in Bender’s common antics, and turn their attention to the gate. Suddenly, they hear a deep voice come out of it.

“Who goes there, strangers?” the mysterious voice asks.

The four look at each other, thinking whether or not to answer. Then the voice speaks again.

“If you do not answer, I will assume that you are either thieves, telemarketers, or harmless Death Toads. Either way, I am going to blast a large laser in 5…4…3..”

“Wait!” The group says.

“We are from Planet Express, and we need to make a delivery!” Leela answers.

“Oh…” The voice says, “We have been waiting for you! Please come in!”

The large gate, which was missing some jewels…from Bender’s mischief, of course…opens spontaneously and sure enough, the four walk inside, amazed at the view. It was even better than the outside, as if a veil had covered the true beauty of the odd city that you wouldn’t expect in the middle of a hostile, deadly planet in the Doom Universe.

“It’s just as though a viel had covered the true beauty of this odd city that no one would expect to be in the Doom Universe!” Bender exclaims.

“I wonder if they have Slurm here…” Fry wonders.

“I don’t care if they have magnets tortuously attached to my head, as long as they have booze.”

“And a mall!” Amy adds.

“And a boot store, with boots of gold!” Leela says.

“Are you really that obsessed with boots, Leela?” Fry asks her.

“No. I just wanted to add to what you guys were saying, and I couldn’t think of anything else that I do all the time.”

“How about a nag store?” Bender answers.

Leela just sighs and walks off. Fry notices and runs after her.

“Leela!” Fry says, panting, “Wait!”

Leela starts to walk faster, trying not to seem like she is running away.

“Fry--” she starts, but is quickly interrupted.

“Listen to me!” He snaps, “I know that I have been a big jerk to you lately…”

“That’s for sure…”

“…but I’d like to say that—“

“Everyone! Everyone!” The mystery man says, “Time for a feast of friendship!”

“But—“ Fry says.

“Go!” Bender exclaims, “He said I can have a whole dump truck of beer!” He quickly runs past Fry, who shuffles and watches Amy and Leela run in. Bender’s extending arm comes back, grabs Fry, and pulls him to the large, palace-like building where they would be eating.

Scene: Inside the Feasting Hall. There are about 3,000 other aliens, who all look humanoid, just with purple skin and green hair, in the hall alone. In the center is a floating table where our protagonists sit. The mysterious man sits at the head, with Fry on his left and Leela to his right, Amy sitting next to Leela and Bender next to Fry. Fry has his head resting on his hand as he twirls the foreign food around, with a Slurm next to him, untouched. Bender guzzles down every cup of beer given to him, while Leela and Amy chat quietly.

“…he was trying to apologize, I think, Amy. But he got interrupted by the guy next to me. What should I do?”

“Just wait for him to get another chance, and forgive him. He has a small attention span, you know, so he forgets things easily.”

“Why would he forget that he loved me? He’s been trying to get with me for the last 3 or 4 years now…maybe even more.” Leela says, and in the meantime puts her hands on her head.

“I don’t know. Maybe he will tell you. Talk to him on the way home, and I can drive. I will turn Bender off so he won’t get in the way.”

“Yeah…well thanks. I really…”

“Ok, Planet Express,” The mystery man says, “First off, I have not formally introduced myself, and neither have you. I am Melbraxinugounieshinz. But you can call me Mel. And you are?”

“I’m Captain Turanga Leela, but I go by Leela, that is Amy Wong, Bender, and Phillip J. Fry, and he goes by his last name.”

“Well, welcome to you all. And now I’d like to toast to the people who freed our civilization from the one thing that keeps us in! The Snails!”

“What about the T-Rexes?” Fry inquires.

“Those are our pets; they know who we are…”

“Oh…also, how did the snails get those jetpacks and rayguns?”

“From evil telemarketers from Venus...ooh we despise them."

"He he he..." Fry snickers, and puts out his hand in which Bender pays him 10 dollars.

"And because of that, we trust you in full, and we invite you to take anything from the treasure chamber, even the 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 karat gold bar!”

Bender falls over off the floating platform, crushing what looks to be, an official of a sort. The room falls silent as they view the horrible display. Bender gets up and brushes himself off. Under where he fell is a large, fat alien. He is crushed and beaten in, and bleeding.

“Ow…” Bender looks down, then reaches behind him (to his behind) to find a crown, wedged in. “Sweet…Let me just pocket this…”

The aliens start to cry and sob hysterically. Mel is staring down, in amazement, shock, and horror. He starts, “You…You…You killed our king…”

“Uh oh…” Leela whispers, “Let’s slowly get down for a quick escape.” The two others agree and climb down the ladder to the floor. Bender is just staring around the room.

“What?” He looks down, “He’ll get better…so do I get my gold now, or are you just gonna keep crying, Mel?”


“Crap!” Bender exclaims.

“Guys,” Leela says, “just press the ‘Last’ key on the watch, which will bring us to the gate! We can get a head start!”

Bender starts to run, after stealing the king’s jewels and high-tails it out of the building by teleport. Amy, Fry, and Leela follow.  As soon as they reach the outside the gate, the whole city was furious at the ones who killed their beloved king.

They run through the jungle, as fast as they possibly can run, followed about 100 yards behind by the mob. They pass everything they saw on the way running from the snails: the giant mushrooms, gorges, t-rexes, and everything in between. They reach a clearing where the ship is parked, and Amy and Bender are the first in. Rocks come flying past Leela and Fry, and Leela is unfortunate enough for one to strike the watch, breaking it. More rocks, arrows, sticks, and really anything the aliens could find, come flying at Fry and Leela. Leela turns and looks back, ducks, then trips on a twig. Fry continues to run past her when he turns and notices Leela trying to continue, hopelessly. He quickly stops and turns back.

He dodges the various projectiles as he tries to save Leela. He his quickly hit with a pile of mud, in which covers most of his right eye, leaving him squinting. He wipes it off and gets to Leela, when he kneels down.

“You aren’t going to propose to me, Fry, are you?” Leela asks.

“No...Now hold my hand!” he says, quickly. She follows and he pushes a button on the telewatch. The ship starts to leave with out him, but Amy knows what Fry is doing. Leela holds Fry in a tight embrace as they beam out of the clearing and disappear. It is a déjà vu-like view as the aliens throw the deadly projectiles at the beaming Leela and Fry, only for the ones across from the circle to get hit by them.

Scene: The Planet Express ship’s loading dock. A flash of light appears as the two teleport in. Leela is still hugging Fry as they enter. He loses conciseness and falls to the ground. Leela kneels over him.

“Fry! Fry!” she yells, “Wake up!” She picks up Fry’s left hand and looks at his telewatch. The screen shows a number 21 in red letters with the word: OVERLOAD flashing below it. Leela starts to tear up and sob on Fry when the screen fades out…

The End...just kidding.

…Fade in, as if eyes were opening. Fry awakens in a hospital bed. Looking around, he sees a heart scanner and the normal items seen in a hospital room. The tv is set to “All My Circuits.” Bender is in the corner chair, sleeping with the remote in his hand. Fry smiles slightly. He then slowly turns his head to his right to see Leela leaning against the bed, sleeping. He says softly, cracking a bit, “This seems a little familiar, doesn’t it?”

Leela opens her eye slowly, then she opens it quickly in both disbelief and relief to see Fry alive and awake. She hugs him and Fry seems surprised at first, but then hugs her softly back.

“I thought you wouldn’t make it…” she started, crying.

“I’m fine, Leela,” he starts, interrupted by a quick soft kiss on his cheek. “and I’m sorry, I don't deserve that kiss.”


“For breaking your heart.”

Leela sighs, “Fry, I know you love me. And the truth is…I kind of do too. But I don’t think I am ready yet. And I don’t think you are, either. You aren’t the most mature person I know. That’s for sure. And it may take time to be that guy. You’re sweet, but childish and forgetful sometimes. I just think you need to thin you’re life out. I mean, you just dropped me for that other girl and I cant believe that you would do that. If you really loved me, you wouldn’t have one and found another girl, and you would have waited. And…and…” Another tear starts to form in her eye. Fry holds her hand.

“Leela, I am truly sorry. I was a jerk. I guess that after Lars died, I thought you wouldn’t love me…because I was him…And I guess I was wrong. If you ever forgive me, and if I ever regain your trust…I may just have your heart. Now…I think we should take this slow…by just being friends again.”

“I guess so.” She says, “you have to be mature to say something that thoughtful, and I know you aren’t just making this up. I forgive you.” She thinks about what they both just said, and they stare at each other for a while. Leela gives Fry another kiss on the cheek. "You deserve that one."

“So…does this mean that…we’re dating?” he says, smiling. Leela stares at him. “I’m just kidd—“

“I think that we may be able to give it a shot.”

Fry grins ear to ear. He even laughs a bit and Leela knows what he is thinking. She even laughs at the thought she was actually dating Fry. Fry, who she ignored for 8 years.

“Now don’t ever do that again…almost dying,” Leela says.

“I make no promises when I am employed with Planet Express…but now that we are together, I won’t let that happen.”

The End...for real.

A little longer than part 1, but it sums it up! Hope you liked it!  big grin laff smile tongue

“Fry, I know you love me. And the truth is…I kind of do too. But I don’t think I am ready yet.", This line seems to say that she kind of loves her self too, and isn't ready to admit it, but that isn't what is meant is it?
Leela is beginning to show her feelings for Fry, but it just doesn't quite sound that way, just trying to clarify this, the story seems well written otherwise, but this point is unclear.

Hmm...true. It should be "Fry, I know you love me. And the truth is, I kind of love you too. But I just don't think I'm ready yet."
