The Late Philip J. Fry - Wikipedia
When she did wake up, Fry and Leela hugged each other. Leela met Lars Fillmore in However Robot Leela is jealous and the two start fighting over him. Fry is. In the episode "Overclockwise", Leela refers to her relationship with Fry as "on again, off again". Did Futurama get renewed for a new season in ?. Both Fry and Leela tried their hand at dating other people, but by the end of each episode they always Leela: "I'm so scared Fry; I don't know what to do!".
The upgrades include a new personality, complete with a female voice module. Bender and the ship's new personality fall for each other and start dating. Bender quickly grows tired of the ship, and begins cheating on her. The ship, suspicious of Bender, begins acting in an increasingly possessive and erratic manner. The crew is assigned the task of delivering several tons of conversation hearts to Lrrr as a peace offering. The Omicronians are highly offended by the chalky candies and their saccharine messages.
While escaping from the Omicronian death fleet, Bender decides to break up with the Planet Express Ship. This cracks the ship's fragile mind, and it comes to a stop, allowing the Omicronian missiles to strike. The ship is sent tumbling through space, dented and scorched, but physically intact. Leela attempts to console the ship, but fails. The ship decides to fly into a quasar so that the power of the ten billion black holes in it will merge her and Bender into a perfect quantum singularity. When he begins pursuing a relationship with Leela, it was after two years of ignoring her in favor of other women.
In " I Dated a Robot ", she helps him to find a robot celebrity personality to "to be romantically linked with. She clearly knows that he is talking about her, but she prompts him for more details on this girl back home, basking in his flattery. As gratified as she is by his comments, she must be equally disappointed by his blank stare in " The Cryonic Woman ", his response when, attempting to remind him what a career chip is, she says, "It's how we met.
He then goes on to fail miserably at defending her honor, in fact providing his opponents with ammunition and even inadvertently insulting Leela outright. Leela's frustration with Fry's ineptitude is clear. Leela starts to swoon as soon as Fry, having eaten a parasite-laden sandwich, shows the slightest sign of being something other than a buffoon. Her swoon disappears just as easily when Fry convinces the parasites to leave his body.
In the closing scene Fry begins practicing the holophonor and shows by its projection that his feelings for Leela remain. Leela is impressed with Fry in " Parasites Lost " The friendship deepens in " The Cyber House Rules ", as Fry makes an effort to convince Leela that she doesn't need a fake eye grafted onto her forehead.
When she finally has the fake eye removed, she tells Fry that he is "a true friend. He gets another kiss later, but only on the cheek.
Fry seems to be on a mission to win Leela's heart in " Time Keeps on Slippin' ". He starts off cool, offering Leela a romantic ride in one of the swan "boats" that aren't actually swans.
Later, while they're in space collecting chronitonshe comes on again, suggesting that she and his face get to know each other better. When she rejects him, he says, "Come on, Leela, why won't you go out with me?
We both know there's something there. Later, Fry lures her to a love nest, claiming that it's a time-proof chamber that will protect her from the time skips.
A time-jump occurs just after he says something crude--now Leela is gone and Fry has a black eye.
Fry-Leela relationship - The Infosphere, the Futurama Wiki
Leela talks to Zoidberg about Fry, indicating that she likes him but is turned off by his immaturity. This is an important point on Leela's part: Fry's immaturity is the only thing that holds her back.
It forever remains the central theme of their relationship, at least until they are finally married in " Meanwhile ".
However, other than the short-lived fling of Parasites Lost, this is the first positive sign of any kind from Leela: Still, when Fry barrages her with flattery and asks her out, she says that they are just too different, he being a man and she being a woman.
She walks away from him without hesitation when Bender distracts her. Fry makes another attempt to impress Leela by showing her that he has learned how to pilot the ship. She is impressed with him, but she is totally turned off to think that he learned the skill strictly to impress her. Just in the middle of her exclamation that there's no way they could ever be together, time skips forward to their wedding ceremony. But Leela is convinced that she has been duped, and after time skips forward a couple more times, they are divorced.
They have one last conversation about their relationship, in which they agree that Leela will never feel about Fry the way he feels about her, under any circumstances. Fry obsesses about and eventually discovers the means by which he convinced Leela to marry him, but Leela never gets to see it.
We find out more about Leela's attitude toward relationships in general and Fry in particular in " Love and Rocket ". She apparently agrees with Farnsworth when he suggests that she is a "bitter husk of a human being who long ago abandoned hope of finding love in this lifetime. He doesn't listen Leela's advice, "I'm not attracted to a guy's message, Fry.
I'm attracted to the guy. But on reflection she concedes, "given the chance, I'd give in to urges far more shocking.
Love and Rocket
Fry is clearly far down on her list. Finding Fry unconscious after disabling Planet Express ship, Leela seems touched, mostly by the fact that Fry was willing to sacrifice his life to save hers, but also in part by the aptness of the message inscribed on the candy that Fry coughs up when she resuscitates him: At the home of Leela's parents in " Leela's Homeworld ", there is a sort of shrine composed of items Leela has flushed down the toilet throughout her life.
Fry notices on this shrine a letter from himself to Leela, which he describes as "full of my personal feelings.
Again Fry is clearly far down on her list. Fry puts his arm around Leela while they race Moose and Mandy, but she swerves the car to get him to move away from her. After Leela has saved the crew from "pre-life", as she reflects that she is happy with her choice to return to adulthood with her friends, she and Fry share a meaningful glance, but nothing more. Fry, attempting to assuage his own guilt over missing a delivery mission in " The Why of Fry ", wants to make it up to Leela by taking her out to dinner.
This is typical of Fry, to miss the point entirely and to have the wrong reasons for asking her out. Typical of Leela is her rejection of Fry. In fact, not only does she reject him categorically, she also explains that she is going out with Chazthe mayor's aide. When Fry and Leela cross paths while she is out on her date with Chaz, Fry has a brief moment of happiness, hoping that the date is not going well. Leela crushes his hopes when she tells him that the date is going very well, asking him to walk Nibbler.
While Fry from the future argues with Nibbler ofFry mentions that he has feelings for Leela, but also that she doesn't care for him. Nibbler offers to help Fry with respect to Leela, if Fry will agree to push his self into the cryo-tube. Fry is won over to Nibbler's request when Nibbler frames the issue as "save yourself or save Leela.
While Leela looks at the photo with a hole in it, Fry walks into the room and appears, from Leela's perspective, in the hole where Chaz' face had been. Leela is happy to see Fry, and actually gives him a kiss on the lips. After their harrowing escape from the space-bees in " The Sting ", Fry realizes that he doesn't want anything to happen to Leela, and comments that they need to be more careful. When the baby queen space-bee attacks, Fry puts his body between the bee and Leela to protect her.
While Leela is in a coma she seems to have a lot more affection for Fry than she ever has before, perhaps prompted by Fry's death. In one of Leela's coma-dreams, Fry is very romantic, and she enjoys it. The alert viewer might notice that something is clearly amiss with Fry being genuinely romantic with Leela. We have seen from the beginning that Fry has no capacity for romance, and usually approaches Leela with brazen lust even while thinking to himself that he is in fact being romantic.
When jelly-Fry comes into being, Leela expresses great relief that "Fry" is now alive. She says nothing about feelings for him, in fact clearly denying any such feelings with, "Feeling responsible for your death was driving me mad. Fry's photo says to Leela, "I love you," but her hallucinations frighten her so much that she is unable to respond. When Leela wakes in the hospital, we realize that everything Fry said in her coma-dream was said by the real Fry at her bedside for two weeks. This is not the first time Fry has said, "I love you" to Leela, but perhaps going through this experience has matured him somewhat, which would finally give some meaning to the words.
Their embrace, lacking a kiss, suggests that even if Leela has begun finally to see the desired maturity in Fry, she's still comfortable being just friends with him. The opening scene of " The Farnsworth Parabox " shows Fry making a surprisingly determined effort to get Leela to go out with him. Leela clearly isn't going for the idea, as she cowers away from Fry on the other side of the couch and finally rejects his request with, "I have sweaty boot-rash!Futrurama - Leela and Amy kiss Fry
Leela "One" tells the story to the others. The story makes it clear that Fry is indeed capable of impressing Leela, and not just on one date, but over the long term. After everyone goes back to their home universes, Fry asks Leela once again to go out with him. Leela flips a coin, but, apparently beginning to consider him a possibility, decides against looking at it, and simply accepts his invitation.
Never having indicated musical inclination before except briefly in Parasites Losthe says that he hears great music in his head. Leela, never having indicated musical appreciation before except briefly in Parasites Losttells the story of Seana loser whom she loved primarily because of his musical talent. The stage is set for an exploration of the relationship between Fry and Leela.
While attending a large performance by Fry, Leela sheds tears, but we don't know which kind of love they might indicate. She and Fry have become close friends over the years, but she has only briefly shown flickers of interest in him.
When Fry announces that he will make his opera about her, she plays very coy, pretending to be surprised. Everything changes when Leela hears Fry's music, when she shows that she is the same woman who dated Sean: In his opera, Fry describes Leela as "the woman that I idolize. After all the other opera patrons abandon the theater, Leela asks Fry to show her the ending, even if necessarily performed by his human hands. Love and time travel Fry's emotional repertoire grows just enough to include long-standing jealousy in Bender's Big Score.
Leela falls in love with and almost marries Lars who is a future version of Frya clear indication that it truly is only Fry's immaturity that makes her dislike him, as maturity is the major difference between Fry and Lars. Back in the 21st century, the Fry who becomes Lars reconnects with his family and his life, but pines for Leela, until he starts a long relationship with Leelu.
Love and Rocket - Wikipedia
At Lars' memorial service, Leela seems to have a new appreciation for Fry, but she doesn't articulate it, and Fry moves on to a different woman in The Beast with a Billion Backs. However, when Zoidberg barfs for joy, Leela agrees that the way Fry and Colleen behave toward each other is "pretty sickening". It could be that Leela harbors a bit of jealousy. Later, Fry breaks up with Colleen.
To his credit, he doesn't immediately go slobbering after Leela. He pines for a while, even going to counseling which Leela would appreciate for its contribution to Fry's maturity and finally decides to leave this universe.
Leela practically encourages him in this endeavor. On meeting YivoFry falls in love with shkler. Leela is suspicious of Yivo for a long time, but she also eventually falls in love with shklim. After being "rescued" by Bender, Fry sheds a tear on saying goodbye to Yivo. For a brief moment he seems sincere, but immediately turns to Leela, practically leering. Her response, that he forgot about her so quickly when he met Colleen, shows that she does indeed have some pain and jealousy due to Fry's instability.
Without further comment Fry simply agrees with her, then walks to Amy and propositions her instead. Leela must now be really hurt and angry at Fry, and Fry seems to have taken a step backward in the maturity that Leela always wishes for. The relationship is only hinted at in Bender's Gameas when Turanga Munda encourages Leela to consider Zoidberg as a dating candidate.
Fry is strictly in lust mode: They even share a passionate kiss. But this occurs as they're flying into a wormhole with the expectation of never returning. Subsequent episodes reveal that the whole scene is just a repeat of their regular relationship: The other side Fry and Leela continue more-or-less as they always have: Leela likes Fry and is even physically attracted to him, but is utterly turned off by his immaturity.
Fry remains immature, always coming up with silly ideas in a quest to impress her. Sparks fly a few times during the season; nothing sticks, but the final episode suggests a romantic future for the couple In " Rebirth ", Fry and Leela pick up where they left off at the end of Into the Wild Green Yonderonly more so.
When Fry's remains dissolve to nothing in Farnsworth's stem cell vat, Leela is so grief-stricken that she creates a robot-Fry. This is a surprise, given Leela's historical cool-headedness about their relationship.
Perhaps losing him has intensified her newly warming feelings for him. It is no surprise that robot-Fry creates a robot-Leela. Fry appears not to have changed much: Robot-Leela turns out to be slightly more cool-headed than Leela: Leela was so grief-stricken that she created a fake Fry, while robot-Leela wants to cool their relationship while she tries to sort out her confusion over her own identity.
Fry expresses his feelings more vehemently than ever before, saying, "I love Leela, always and forever. Fry shows that he has in fact grown a little, when, after the robots run away together, he tells Leela, "I waited a thousand years for you.
I can wait a little longer. He says it to Leela, although Leela wasn't the one who expressed emotional uneasiness about her relationship with Fry. It was robot-Leela who expressed those concerns. So Fry has guessed that Leela might feel the same way as robot-Leela. Back in the 31st century, Leela takes over Planet Express and turns it into a successful company for over forty years, but still harbors some nostalgia and hurt toward Fry for standing her up before his "death".
In the yearshe finds the lost birthday card as it emerges from the time stream and learns that Fry did not mean to abandon her. She goes to the empty Cavern on the Green and fires her laser at the ceiling in a way that results in mineral water dripping to form stalagmites that create a message Fry discovers one billion years later, reading that although their time together was short, it was the best time of her life.
Having lost their opportunity to return home, Fry, Bender, and the Professor resign themselves to going to the end of time. After the last existing proton decaysthey are amazed to discover that the now empty universe undergoes another Big Bangand furthermore that it replicates the same universe and its exact eventsas opposed to having unique inhabitants and history.
They realize that they can continue forward in time and eventually reach the moment that they left in the new copy of the universe.
They succeed after overshooting their first attempt, though the new universe is about feet lower than the previous one, causing the time machine to crush their duplicates in the new universe to death as they enter their machine avoiding a time travel paradox.
Fry rushes to meet Leela and manages to make it to their date on time. After dinner, Fry apologizes for losing his birthday card to her, but Leela dismisses it and tells him that she will always remember their time together. Bender can be seen under the bridge they stand on, burying the bodies of the dead duplicates.
