By Rush

Scene: Planet Express: Lounge. The TV off. Bender sits the opposite side of the couch smoking a wrapped sheet of paper, while Leela lies down on her front with her boots touching Bender's side and with her head buried into Fry's jacket; she sobs and hugs it, as if it was him.

Bender: 'Jees you still crying? Why not try the Crying Dome?

[Leela sits up straight, rubs her eye; still holding Fry's jacket squeezing it.]

Leela: (crying) 'Crying Dome?

Bender: 'Yeah, it's a small round transparent structure on the roof, beside to the left of the Angry Dome, also the room is stuffed with onions. Duh duhhhhh!

Leela: (crying) 'No, I don't what to make myself out to be a determined nut-case to the public.

Bender: 'Yeah, speaking of which, the Professor just had it installed this morning.

Leela: 'This morning? That's when...when..--

Bender: 'Oh, hear comes the heavy water works.

[She whales with a fresh river of tears falling down he cheek, she punches Bender; sending him flying into the air out the open window.]

Leela: (crying) 'Oh no...did I just kill Ben--

[Bender runs into the room and sits opposite Leela.]

Bender: 'No, I'm alright. [He notices a flash of light out the window, along with a brief color of foghat grey.] What the?!

Cut to: Outside Planet Express. A U-J-Bender lies on his back, down on the pavement.

U-J-Bender: 'Ow! I think I got a whiplash!..[He stands up rubbing his ass.]..(thoughtful/scratching his ass) Hmm, I wonder what universe this is?

Bender: (shouting out the window) 'Hey, there's only room enough for the one and only Bender in this universe, X4G-A!

U-J-Bender: 'What are you talking about their's lot's of Bending units in all universe.

Bender: (shouting out the window) 'Yeah well, none of them are alike. God I hope you just don't disappear, when I'm right in the middle of a sentence n--

[With a flash of light U-J-Bender disappears.]

Cut to: Lounge.

Bender: 'Oh, man!

Leela: (crying) 'Who...who were talking to out there?

Bender: 'A universe jumping Bender. [He walks away from the window, and sits down on the couch opposite her.] Why are you crying by the way? I though you'd like him leaving us, and not bothering you anymore, 'bout trying to get a date with you?

Leela: (crying) 'No to everything you just said. And why am I constantly crying?

Bender: 'I uh know. Why?

Leela: (crying) 'Because he's gone Bender.

Bender: 'What? [He moves his hands forward in exasperation several times.] Whoa whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa! [He stops moving his hands.] Wait! You mean he's....?

Leela: (crying) 'Yep. Were you even listening to me?

Bender: 'No, not really, I don't really listen to anyone.

[Bender falls to his knees on the floor.]

Bender: (crying/screaming) 'Noooooooooooooooooooooooo! Who will make Bender waffles just the way he likes them now?

Cut to: Hangar. Farnsworth unlocks his safe (The very same one as seen in Bender's Big Score, when Bender was ordered to open it by Nudar). The tiny glass that's marked "Fry's DNA" which should be filled with his hair though in-fact is completely empty.  He gasps and his glasses fall off smashing on the ground.

Farnsworth: 'Oh my! How's that possible? And am I meant to clone him now? [He takes out aspire pair of glasses and puts them on.] However, it can only only mean one thing which is...Wait I need to think about this new revelation of an anomaly in the Angry Dome again, for it can be used for other things.

[Farnsworth closes, and locks his safe, then walks out of the room humming thoughtfully and rubbing his chin.]

Scene: New New York Sewers: Mutant Village. Among the;chaos, screaming, panic, dead bodies, plies of green goo, and the burning buildings of the village. T-Q-D soldiers who are armed with green plasma rifles, round up the mutants (who they haven't killed) dragging them with blue laser ropes wrapped around them, using the ropes to bring them into the church.

Scene: Planet Express: Lounge. The TV off. Leela who has cheered up slightly not crying anymore and Bender is crying, hugging her on the couch.

Bender: (crying) 'You know, all those times I said "Kill all humans," I'd always whisper "except one". Fry was that one. And I never told him so.

[Bender leans his head on Leela's shoulder crying.]

Leela: 'I know Bender, I know.

[Leela's cell phone rings, she takes it out of her pocket and answers it.]

Munda: (whispering/ on phone) 'Leela.

Leela: 'Hi Mom! Why are whispering?

Munda: (whispering/ on phone) 'I'll put you onto Dad.

Leela: 'Uh, okay?

Morris: (whispering/ on phone) 'Listen we have much time but whatever you don't....--

[There are sounds of squeaking boots.]

Munda: (in the background/screaming) 'Morris!

Leela: (worried) 'Dad what's going on?

T-Q-D Soldier: (in the background) 'Stand down freaks!

Morris: (in the background) 'We're standing down.

T-Q-D Soldier: (in the background) 'Come with us, or we will not hesitate to kill you!

Leela: 'Hello? Hello!

T-Q-D Soldiers: (in the background) 'Nannimarco, we've found them.

Nannimarco: (in the background/Posh English Accent) 'That's sir, Nannimarco to yous. None the less, marvelously work chaps. (shouting) I say, put the phone down dirt blood!

[Morris hangs up.]
