Farnsworth, Zoidberg, Hermes and Amy: (chanting) 'You killed Fry! You killed Fry! You killed Fr...!

Leela: 'Stop it! Stop it!

She tears their faces down like paper. Bender appears on the floor.

Bender: 'You killed Fry!

She grabs the hover and sucks him up.

Leela: 'OK, I'm insane! But I'm still sane enough to know it. [She looks at a photo of Fry on her bedside.] The only time I feel alright is in my dreams, with you. [She takes the jar of honey.] Three spoonfuls. Then I can dream forever. [She starts to eat.] One. Two [She dips in a third time.] Here goes. Goodbye, waking world.

She moves the spoon towards her mouth.

Fry's Photo: 'Leela! No! [A bee flies past.] Listen to me, you don't want to lie in bed like a vegetable and do nothing the rest of your life. I've tried it. Bedsores hurt!

Leela: (crying) 'Then what am I s'posed to do?

Fry's Photo: 'Fight it!

Leela: (crying) 'I can't!

Fry's Photo: 'You can! The Leela I know doesn't give up this easily.

Leela: 'OK. I'll try. [The bee buzzes past her again. She waves her arm around.] Go away!

She throws the jar at it, misses, the jar breaks and bee flies away Leela picks up Fry's photo and holds it tightly.

Fry's Photo: 'Good miss. But I don't know if you can hear me, Leela, [Leela speaking: 'I can hear you] but there's something I wanna tell you. I-I love you.

Fry: 'Leela! You're awake!

Leela: 'Of course I'm awake. You wouldn't stop waking me. [She looks around.] Where am I?

Fry: 'In the hospital. The ambulance took you here right after the bee stung you.

Leela: 'Ok whatever. Get onto this bed and lie down next to me.

Fry: 'Un, Ok.

Fry gets onto the bed and lies down next to Leela and she warps her arms around him.

Leela: 'Did you really mean it, when you said "I love you"?

Fry: 'You heard that?

Leela nods.

Fry: 'Yeah, I did and I still do.

Leela: 'I love you too.

She rubs her nose against Fry's nose, closes her eye and presses her lips against his and makes-out with him, he dares to his arms around her, she does not reject. The rest of the staff of Planet Express walk in and gasp.

Bender: 'Whoa! Love is the air!

Zoidberg: 'Craw! I'm getting [his head fin pops up] aroused.

Leela pulls out of the kiss.

Leela: 'You're coming home with me tonight, and every night. And Bender will bring your stuff over once I give him $5.

Fry: 'I love you, Leela. Were together at last!

Leela: (whispering) 'Together,[she hugs him] At last. You know, you could really use a shower.

Fry: '(whispering) 'You too.

Leela sniffs her right armpit.

Leela: ''Ew! [moves her head away from it]You're right. But we can do it together in my shower at home. [caressing Fry's chest and speaking sexfully] And who knows, what we'll be up to in there.

Hermes: (from outside the door) 'It's been five minutes, and a bit over. Can we come in now?

Leela: 'Sure.

The staff walk in.

Bender: 'You were in the best coma I've ever seen! So tell me when you gonna dump Fry?

Leela: 'I'm never, ever ever, gonna dump Fry.

Bender: 'Sure that's what they all say and--

Amy: 'Bender, shut up. Anyway the doctor said you'd never wake up.

Leela: 'Really? How long was I out?

Amy: 'Two weeks. Fry never left your side for a minute.

Bender: 'And heres another thing.

Bender lifts up his shirt. There is a patch where his wound was.

Bender: 'The stinger went right through him and you got all the poison. His new spleen came from a guy who liked to motorcycle.

Zoidberg: 'And my another thing is, he talked non-stop. Like a parrot of the sea, he was!

Fry: 'I though that maybe if you heard a familiar voice it might help keep your mind together. But who knows if it really got through.

Leela: 'You can be so silly sometimes.[She hugs him] I heard every word. I love you Fry.

Fry: 'I love you too.

The staff all cheer.

Bender: 'Woo!

Zoidberg: 'I'm gonna get me some hospital food!
