This one is kinda sad but ends on a good note
Opening Scene: We see Fry and Leela (who is pregnant) on their way for a check up at the hospital. It is a snowy night in New New York. Fry is driving.
Fry: So Leela, what are we gonna name our little linebacker?
Leela: (patting her belly) Maybe Johnny or Freddy or Eli
Fry: I like Eli, it sounds very babyish and he will be respected.
Leela: So its settled, Eli Joseph Fry
(suddenly, the car stops in the road and a truck rear ends them, Fry wakes up after being in a coma for minutes)
Fry: Leela! Are you okay?
Truck Driver: Sir, your wife is gone, I though you were too, now get outta the car!
Fry: But my wife is in there and pregnant
(he starts crawling out of the wrecked car and tries to get up but falls. He turns around to the wreck as fire trucks, police cars and ambulances. He starts crawling towards the wreck crying and sobbing, leaving a trail of blood.)
(he passes out)
Scene: in the hospital. Fry is laying in a hospital bed with Ivs in his arm he has his head arms and one leg bandaged. He opens his eyes to find a doctor standing next to him looking at a clipboard
Fry: (weakly) Leela
Doctor: Mr. Fry, your awake, that is a good sign
Fry: Whereís my wife?
Doctor: I donít know how to tell you thisÖ
Fry: Just give it to me straight
Doctor: Sheís gone Fry.
Fry just closes his eyes and starts crying. His wife is gone. His only love and joy that gave him such happiness now gone. But what about their son?)
Fry: Whereís Eli?
Doctor: There were only two people in the wreck, was there another?
Fry: No, my wife, Leela, was 8 months pregnant, with a boy, what happened to him?
Doctor: He was delivered by emergency and if alive, he is in the maternity ward where your can see him.
Fry was too sad to go and see his son. His wife was gone and the baby would only remind him of her. A nurse walked into his room with a blue blanket. Inside was a little boy who looked like Fry, with his head shape and little tuft of hair, two eyes and purple hair, he was asleep and breathing heavily.
Nurse: Mr. Fry, would you like to see your son?
Fry: Sure, but I dunno if Iím ready.
( The nurse handed him the baby and he put his bandaged arms around his son, Eli Joseph.)
Fry: (quietly whispering into hi sonís ear) youíre my little piece of Leela ,Eli
Scene: Fry is at his apartment, left with Eli. Bender walks in with a beer and a letter
Bender: You okay buddy?
Fry: I canít believe sheís gone Bender
(Bender takes a drink)
Bender: You still got Eli, and for a little meat bag, heís pretty okay, except he leaks a lot
Fry: I know, but Leela. Every time I look at Eli, it reminds me of her, her smile, her hair and her cute little nose (he breaks down)
(Eli starts crying)
Bender: Iíll get him buddy, you wallow in your tears.
Fry: (yells out) Leela!! Why couldnít it have been me!!!!!
Scene: Fry is taking Eli out to the park. Eli is now a couple of months old and walking wobbly. He has a favorite teddy bear that was leelaís. He has fryís bangs in purple and wearing overalls, a white shirt and a blue blurnsball cap like his mother had.
Fry: Okay Eli, Iíll show you why I loved your mother (he starts to choke up) come on (he pats his sonís back and Eli wobbles alongside Fry to a tree. Inscribed in the tree are the words FRY+LEELA(SHE SAID YES!)).
Eli: Ma Ma?
Fry: Eli! You spoke! This is wonderful!
(he scoops up his son, throws him up in the air and catches him.)
Youíre my little piece of Leela
Eli: Ma Ma?
Fry: Yes Ma Ma.
Bender come up behind them with a fembot and a human woman.
Bender: Fry, I want you to meet Bree, she is looking for a man with sex appeal, (whispers) pretend thatís you.
Fry: Sorry Bender, but Iím not ready for a relationship, except for one with my son Eli.
Bree: Oh what a cute baby, he looks like you Mister , except for that hair. The same as his mother?
Fry: Yes and sheís dead, so I would like to continue my walk with my son please
Eli: Ma Ma!
Bender: Hey! He said a word!
Fry: Thatís my boy.
Bree: You must be so proud, well Mister, I have to go see my husband bye!
Fry and Eli look at each other in question and then snuggle up together.
Scene: Fry and Eli are in his car and are driving in New New York. Suddenly the car stops.
Fry: Uh Oh, not again Leela please not now! If I do hafta go, take me not Eli!
A truck rear ends them and Fry jumps out of the car which is now on fire
(Fry is being shaken and he wakes up)
Leela: Fry FRY!
Fry: wha? Leela? It was all a dream.
Leela: What Fry? And keep it down your yelling into poor Eliís ears.
The camera zooms out and we see Leela and Fry in bed and a baby boy just like in Fryís dream. Fry laughs
Fry: Itís nothing Leela (he picks up Eli) All I need for a good nights sleep is you and a little peace of you (he places Eli on his stomach and Eli falls asleep. Leela snuggles next to Fry and Fry puts one hand on Eliís back and an arm around Leela, but he notices a scar on his wrist. )
Fry : (thinking) Was it really a dream?
(Fry forgets what happened and falls asleep kissing Leela's forhead)
