By Rush

Around the night of Fry's Opera, nothing more to say it might ruin it for you.


Scene: Planet Express: Farnsworth's Lab. Fry is strapped to a table only wearing underpants and the staff are gathered around him, and Leela holds Nibbler in her arms.]

Farnsworth: 'Good news, everybody!

Amy: 'That's something new. You trying to be cool?

Farnsworth: 'Oh my yes, to keep hip and hop. Or whatever you young people say that's cool to say.

Zoidberg: 'I am cool?

Farnsworth: 'Well let's find out about that shall we....[He takes out of his lab-coat "the cool-o-mete" from "Bender Should Not Be Allowed on TV" with it he scans the staff it beeps and the needle moves halfway around the gauge; he scans Bender, it starts beeps rapidly and the needle goes right around to maximum; he quickly points it away form Bender; scans Zoidberg, who rubs his claws excitedly together, and the beeping stops and the needle flops all the way down.] Nope, your apparently not cool at all.

Zoidberg: [looking downcast sad] 'Aww.

[Leela places Nibbler gently down on floor, who sits himself down on it.]

Farnsworth: 'Anywoo before that happened, I've invented a way to turn Fry into a robot using a process I call "reverse organic terraforming".

Scruffy: 'How does it work?

Farnsworth: 'I'm not bothering to explain how it works, just bear with me. Anywoo in non related matter, I've already tested it by turning some of are owls around here into robotic ones. [3 robot owls hoot flying over their heads.] And I even tested on Petroleum-oil, bringing back to life a female Tyrannosaurus-Rex. Unfortunately your bet Nibbler, had eaten her.

[Everyone glares at Leela, who nervously strokes her ponytail. Nibbler spits out a Tyrannosaurus-Rex's skull.]

Bender: 'Yeah, Leela!

Amy: 'Wait! Reverse terraforming? You're not gonna use this on my home planet Mars to turn it back into lifeless waste land?

Farnsworth: 'On my, no. I will not do that. But incidentally, in a related matter, would you agree with me in my theory that "The Dinosaurs" were wiped out by a huge giant brain using it's "psionic attack?

[The staff cheer and clap congratulating Farnsworth .]

Bender: (hooting) 'Wooo! We sure would!

Farnsworth: 'Oh, thank you, oh thank you. Now are you ready, Fry?

Fry: 'Ah, I dunno. I'm kind of beginning to have some second thoughts--

[Farnsworth pulls a lever and Fry is zapped with electricity à la the countless Frankenstein films. Fry's features change his body becomes wobbles while he screams.]

Leela: (shouting) 'Wait, is this gonna kill him?

[Farnsworth laughs dementedly and with the palm of his hand he slaps his forehead.]

Farnsworth: 'Why yes!

Leela: (screaming) 'What! Then stop it!

[There is a blinding flash of light and an explosion of smoke which causes everyone to cough.]

Farnsworth: 'Oh, you're killing me! You're killing me!

Leela: (screaming) 'Am I? Tell me!

Farnsworth: 'I just told you, you're killing me!

[The smoke clears revealing Leela choking Farnsworth.]

Leela: (screaming) 'Ahhhh! You killed him! And now I'm gonna you kill you!

Robotic Voice: 'Why?

Everyone gasps, Leela stops choking Farnsworth, and Bender's eyes zoom in so far they fall out of their sockets; as well as at least Bender sh**t  four dozens of bricks. Robot Fry sits on the table looking blocky shaped exactly like Universe 31 in "The Farnsworth Parabox".

Farnsworth: 'See, I told you it would work!

Leela: (shouting) 'No you didn't! (softy) Fry, how do you feel?

Fry: 'I don't know; lost, strange---Wait as robot. I can never have children! Change me back!

[Leela eye wilds, she turns to face Farnsworth.]

Leela: 'Change him back!

Farnsworth: 'Ok, Fry lay back down on the table.

Leela: 'Why?

Farnsworth: 'It can do other things. Why shouldn't it?

[Fry lies back down on the table and Leela straps him in.]

Farnsworth: 'Are you ready, Fry?

Fry: (shouting) 'Yes! Change me back already!

Bender: 'This the worst from of discrimination, not wanting to be robot! We're superiorly better than you in every way then you meatbags.

[Farnsworth pulls a lever and Fry is zapped with electricity à la the countless Frankenstein films. He slowly starts to turn back to human form. He grows hair, a nose and...]

Hermes: 'Cover your shame, mon!

Bender: 'Hey, Fry! I can see your little man!...[he takes a pictures.] Neat!

[Hermes puts some underpants on Fry. The table tips up and back to Human Fry walks off dizzily.]

Fry: 'It's good to be Human again.

Cut to: Outside Planet Express. Farnsworth stands on highest point of the roof with his hands in the air. There is a storm blowing, that fills the night sky with thick black stormy clouds; raining heavy, and has wicked load screams of wind

Farnsworth: 'And I will now finally put them young whippersnappers from the "Academy of Inventors" in their place! Muahahaha, muahahaha, mmmmyeeeaaaaahhhhhsssss, muahahaha--

Bender's Voice: 'Where's my crotch-plate!


Farnsworth wakes up and finds himself sitting on his armchair in his lounge.

Farnsworth: (startled) 'Eh, whaaaa! What's going on!?

[Bender stands right in front of him, who has no crotch-plate.]

Bender 'Where's my crotch-plate!

Farnsworth: 'Oh dammit to Hell and back and back again, whoever you are! I was having such a good dream! Although you should try looking in Zoidberg's dumpster!

Bender: 'Alright, and after that I'll write some trashy shippy romance fan fiction novels of "All My Circuits" and upload them onto the Internet.


Scene: Outside Metropolitan House of Opera. It is raining heavy a thunderstorm blows; Fry, who wears a tux also holding his holophonor, and Leela who wears her black opera dress; exit the building holding hands.

[There is silence between them; not awkward silence, but a silence of nothing needs to be said sort of silence; as they walk down the steps.]

[When they reach the bottom of the steps onto the pavement a hover-taxi pulls up to them.

Robotic-taxi-man: 'Want a lift? I'll do it for free just finishing up my shift.

[Fry smiles nervously at Leela, who warmly smiles back.]

Leela: 'Sure.

[Fry opens the side back door of the hover-taxi.]

Fry: (nervously) 'Ahh, [he scratches the back of his head.] ladies first?

[Leela nods, she enters inside, followed by Fry. The hover-taxi takes off into the air.]

Cut to: Inside hover-taxi. Leela closes her eye and leans her head on Fry's shoulder peacefully, while he simply tries to keep his nerve by looking out the window afraid that be might screw up anytime now.

Cut to: New New York City Street. The hover-taxi flies down pulling up to Leela's apartment. Fry exits first holding both the door and his hand out to Leela, which she takes hold of without any hesitation.]

Scene: Leela's Apartment Building Corridor. Fry and Leela stand outside her apartment.

Leela: 'Well here we are.

[Leela opens the door and steps inside, and then she turns to face Fry, who looks down at his feet.]

Leela: (very very softy) 'Come, on. [Leela reaches her hand out and holds it in midair towards Fry.] There's no need to afraid. I won't hurt you.

[Fry reaches his hand out placing it in Leela's, she smiles while she gives his hand a gentle squeeze.]

Cut to: Leela's Lounge. Leela and Fry walk inside holding hands.

Leela: (very very softy) 'You've been awfully quite Fry. What gives?

Fry: (nervously) 'Well I...I--

Leela: 'You want something to eat or drink?

Fry: (nervously) 'Ahh, sure if that's okay?

[Leela places her hand on her hips]

Leela: 'Fry I asked you if wanted anything to eat or drink. So do you or do you not, hmm?

Fry: (nervously) 'No, um yeah I mean no I..I..I'm okay.

Leela: 'Yeah, I'm not I'm not that hunger neither really. (very very softy) Do you remember the last time you were here?

[Brief Flashback:Leela's Bedroom. Leela who wears her near-see-through pink sexy outfit from "Parasites Lost", her glaring eye is narrowly looking towards Fry and angrily holds out his holophonor to him.]

Fry: 'Ahh, well...[Fry moves his mouth as if to speak but says nothing .] I um--Hmm!

[With warning Leela pulls Fry close into a bear-hug, literally picking up off the floor swinging him in a circle in the air kissing him deeply making him go limp.]

Leela: (very very softy) 'Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmm![breaks the kiss and places Fry back down on his feet, who gasps for breath.] Oh Fry, I'm sorry what I did to you. But now what you did tonight proves that you can play really good and express your feeling without any outside sources; like Devil's Hands, or such as them worms you had.

Fry: (nervously) 'Leela..I I--

[Leela puts the tip of her index finger over Fry's mouth.]

Leela: 'Shh, you don't have to say anything...[Leela takes hold of his hand.] (very very softy) Come on.

[Leela walks him into the bedroom.]

Scene: Leela's Bedroom. Fry and Leela make-out on her bed. Fry's holophonor is just on the floor at the foot of the bed.

Leela: (very very softy) 'Oh Fry, I want you.

Fry: (quietly) 'Leela, I know it's a bit late now though, but can we go see a movie sometime?

Flashback: Planet Express: Attic Balcony. Fry as the Robot Devil's Hands with them he plays the holophonor. In his image, two stick figures dance. He stops playing and writes some notes on a music sheet. Unknown to him Leela stands in the doorway.

Leela: 'Is it part of the opera?

[Fry turns around and quickly puts the holophonor down.]

Fry: 'Leela! [He stands up.] You shouldn't be listening. I don't want you to hear it till it's done.

Leela: 'But it's so beautiful.

Fry: 'So's a peacock but you don't eat it until it's cooked. This has to be perfect. I want you to hear exactly what I hear when I think about you.

Leela: 'Oh, Fry. All this time you've had this incredible gift and I never knew. I've been a fool. A fully-justified, prudent fool.

[Fry puts his hands behind his back.]

Fry: 'Leela. I feel I should give you a fair warning. After the premiere I'm planning on asking you out...you know on a real date.

Leela: 'What do you mean an real date?

Fry: 'Well you know, an movie where your supposed to care if the people die and after a kiss good night.

Leela: (softy) 'That sounds nice...[She looks into his eyes and holds his hands then quickly takes hers away.] (loudly) Ah! They're so cold!

Robot Devil: (shouting; from street) 'And yet hell is so hot! [He laughs briefly.] Can I have my hands back now?

Fry: (shouting) 'No!

Robot Devil: (shouting; from street) 'You're not nice!

[Present Day.]

Leela: 'Sure. (sexfully) But I'm afraid right now you getting a whole lot more then just a kiss good night.

Fry: 'Are you sure? You don't have to if don't want to. I'll still love you Leela, no matter what, I can wait.

[Leela's eye wides, then with warning she pushes Fry onto the bed and lies her whole body on top of him while she kisses him and fade out.]

[Sometime later, Fry and Leela lie in bed together their clothes thrown everywhere. Leela's head rests against Fry's left shoulder, and her arm is draped across his chest, and Leela's now-loose hair is everywhere. Fry strokes her hair.]

Fry: (quietly) 'I love you, Leela.

Leela: 'You know what?

Fry: 'What?

Leela: 'I--[Leela sits up, looks at him for a second, then leans in and kisses him.] (very very softy) Love you too...[Leela lies back down into, she sighs, and closed her eye.] Good night.

Fry: (quietly) 'Good night.

Hours later, Fry is still awake while Leela with her back turned to him sleeps peacefully.

Fry: 'Leela? [she rolls over to face him] You awake?

[Leela moans and smiles in her sleep form hearing Fry's voice while she cuddles closer to him wrapping her legs and arms around him, and then starts gently nibbling on his ear, coursing Fry to fall asleep instantly.]

Scene: Robot Arms Apartments: Bender's and Fry's lounge. Bender who has his crotch-plate back, sits down on couch the TV is off as wall as all the lights though there is twilight at this point in the night filling the room.

Bender: 'God where is Fry? I'm starting to get slightly a little bit worried about him. Eh, he'll be back.

[He turn on the TV using the remote control.]

TV. Announcer: 'Bachelor Chow, now with even more flavour!

Bender: 'That's wasn't so very original. Now to watch some porn.

Sometime latter, the TV is off once again, Bender is now slumped down on the couch, a few dozens of; beer cans, beer bottle and cigar butts letter the floor. Dawn is breaking outside.

Bender: 'Now, I'm really getting worried about him, and myself of that matter, I didn't actually order a hooker! [He stands up.] I think I'll go out and rob some poor guy, give all his stuff to some rich guy, and then rob him.

[Bender walks out the front door whistling something similar to the Opening Futrama Theme Song.]

Scene: Apartment 1 I: Leela's Bedroom. Fry stirs, wakes up and then gasps, noticing Leela is next to in bed with her legs and arms wrapped around him.

Fry: (quietly) 'It wasn't a dream. [He wraps his arms around her.] (normally) Leela? Are you awake?

[Leela moans giving him a gentle squeeze.]

Leela: (quietly) 'I am now. Let's not get up now, but when we do. I have a spare toothbrush for you to use and for me, since we both forgotten to brush are teeth last night.

Fry: 'Alright. So aww, what we gonna do now in the meantime?

Leela: 'Go back to sleep that's what. Besides it's looks like you need some.

Fry: 'What? I don't need anyway...[He yawns and closes his eyes .] Well maybe a little.

[With a soft gentle kiss good night on the lips, they fall both fall asleep instantly in each other arms.]
