This one is slightly better than my first one. I don't think it's longer or much shorter but it is short for a fanfic. Though I think it's still longer than the Deep South. It's only my second and I know the ending isn't that good but it's a decent reading.
[Int. Planet Express Lounge. Leela is reading the paper while Fry and Bender eat
It says here that police chief Johnson has resigned from the NNY police force.
Was it because he was caught in a steamy romance with one of
his fellow officers?
He was 81 Fry.
So it was a steamy affair...
Good, they finally outed the guy who cost me my pimping business. I never
thought one of my own clients would do such a thing.
[Farnsworth walks in]
Good news everybody! I've given Zoidberg the day off.
Oh, I figured he needed a vacation when he poked Herme's right eye
[Hermes walks in with an eye patch]
All I said was his new shirt was ugly!
[Hermes runs out of the room]
Indeed it was. Anyway, Leela will be temporarily replacing
Wait! How come everytime a job needs to be filled Leela
automatically gets it?
Because she's not an incompetent deilvery boy or an alcholic
[Fry continues eating but is using the wrong end of the spoon to
eat his cereal]
I don't mean to sound ungrateful proffesor but I don't know
anything about being a doctor.
Oh phooey. It's not that complicated. You hit them in the knee, it moves,
you cut them open, and red cord to green cord...
[The proffesor walks out of the room still mumbling]
And he calls me incompetent.
[Fry cuts himself on wrong end of spoon]
Damn! Another broken spoon.
[Fry throws the spoon back into a pile of spoons with the blood at
the sharp end]
Well, I'm going out for my daily protection payment.
When you get to the video store could you ask them to remove
me off the "Don't Rent To" list?
I'm not a mircale worker.
[Int. downtown New New York. Bender is walking down the
street holding a big wad of money]
VOICE FROM BEHIND BENDER:
Say robot, where'd you get all the money?
[Bender starts to turn around]
What's it to you shi-
[Bender sees the man is a police officer]
I mean it's a donation for the homeless people sir.
Do you know who I am ,Bot?
[The cop takes out a badge]
Chief Gray of the New New York police.
Oh so you're the guy who replaced that old geezer, Johnson.
Maybe you can bring peace to this city instead of worrying about kids
on your yard.
[Bender elbows Gray and chuckles]
Johnson was my dad's best friend.
And my dad's dead.
He was murdered by a robot.
And for your information my mechanical friend I don't like kids on
my yard either.
Neither do I...
[Bender takes out a brick, turns around, and throws it hard]
KID OFF SCREEN:
Get off my damn lawn junior!
Was that even your property?
[Gray interrupts before Bender can answer]
I would be careful if I was you. I'm going to
be watching you as much as I can. But right now I've got better things to attend
to right now.
[Gray runs across the street and hides in a bush]
[Int. Dr. Zoidberg's office]
So Fry, what's the problem?
Uh...I think I pulled my groin while carrying a package.
I think it needs a look at.
How's about this?
[Kicks Fry in crotch]
[Int. Bender walking down a street when he notices URL in a
pimp suit standing with a bunch of hooker-bots]
Hey aren't you the policebot?
I was. Gray laid all us robots off. Said we were
prone to mutiny.
So you got fired because you're a robot?
Yup. I just flat-out got the shaft.
Shut the hell up!
Well, we don't have to take this! Hasn't he ever heard of the Automation
Proclomation? Wait we could protest! It'd finally give me a use for these "Kill
All Humans" picket signs I bought.
[Officer Gray is sitting in his office when he hears the robots protesting. He looks
out the window and sees Bender, URL, the Hooker-bots, and
various other robots]
[Gray sighs. He gets up and walks outside]
Come inside and we can negotiate.
[INT. inside prison cell where Bender and the other bots
are being held]
I thought we were going to negotiate!
We did you quiet down and I put you in prison.
On what grounds?
For attempting to start a riot. Oh, and your signs were hurtful.
[Gray walks away and Leela and Fry walk in]
Okay what did you do this time and how much does it cost?
Nothing. The police chief is prejudice.
We're in New York.
I mean against robots.
Oh that's ridiculous.
Look at that poster behind you.
[Leela turns around and sees a poster of a man slamming a keyboard that says "I hate Mondays...and Robots."
[Bend points to another sign that has a picture of a cat hanging off a string that
reads "Hang in There Unless You're A Robot"]
Heh heh. It's funny because it's showing what's it saying.
[Smitty walks up behind Fry]
Visiting times ove- URL?
What do you want you Meatbag?
Ah you know I don't agree with Gray but I need this job.
Listen I'll see if I can get you out tomorrow. I just got off duty.
[Smitty takes off his helmet revealing red hair like Fry's.
Smitty leaves the room]
Wait a second. He has looks like Fry and sounds like Fry. URL, where is the key to the locker
Somewhere in that desk.
[Leela looks through the desk and finds a picture that looks like Gray...but it's a robot]
Oh my God.
[Gray walks into the room]
So you found out what I really am.
[Gray transforms into a large robot]
Give me that picture!
Let my friend go!
[Gray leaps at Leela but she runs out of the way and he crashes through a wall]
[Leela runs toward a copy machine and starts to put the picture in]
[Runs over to Leela. Leela opens the lid and the light flashes into Gray's eyes.
She makes twenty copies and Gray regains sight just as soonas Leela kicks
him in the center of his chest. He spins and around falls on the copy machine. He
breaks it and it severely shocks him as some pictures of him fly out the window]
No...ahh...that's good electricity.
[Later the cops are putting large handcuffs on Gray]
Why'd you do it Gray?
A robot killed my father unit.
But you're a robot.
And I killed my father.
What happened? I was trying to copy my ass
on the broke copy machine.
Did it work?
No, but it's pretty burned.
My dad was going to be torn down and sold for scrap by
the company that used him. When they showed up to dismantle
him I refused to let tyhem through but they knew my weakness...
When I was built the sensors on my eyes were too sensitive
and bright lights easily hurt me. The janitor shined the flashlight on
my eye and I fell on top of dad...
Well you're going somewhere where these naughty "robots" will never
bother you again. The New New York Robot Correctional
[The cops drag him off while he kicks and screams]
[Bender chuckles quietly]
[Int. Planet Express Lounge]
Good news, everybody! I just got back from my eye transplant
and I can see again.
You're wearing Zoidberg's shirt.
I know. It looks better on me doesn't it?
[Zoidberg walks in]
Friends I have wonderful news! I ate a Buddhist and I think
he passed on his peaceful traits to me.
[He sees Hermes wearing his shirt]
[He jumps at Hermes off-screen]
