Deja vu part 1
[Caption - It's like the year 3000 all over again.]
[Scene: Planet Express building, 2:00pm - Lounge.]
Fry (sits next to Leela): Hey Leela, what up?
Leela: Oh hi Fry...
Fry (concerned): What's wrong?
Leela: Oh you wouldn't understand.
Fry (with a grin on his face): Oh yeah? Try me.
Leela (giggles): Well...
Amy (entering the room): Hey guys, guss what?
Amy: I have some one for you to meet...
Fry/Leela: Uh Oh....
Amy: This is Violet!
Amy (sighs): VIOLET! dumb ass!
Fry (to Leela): Is this what you wanted to tell me? That we had a long lost daughter? Why would I not understand that? I mean how did we, you know have her anyway?
Leela: Well do you remember about 3 years ago, during the time skips, when we got, well as you say 'together' and when we got married, do you remember when Bender said "Maybe I had to marry you because you got me pregnant"?
Leela: Well the thing is, you did.
Fry: YAY! Um I mean, NOOOO!
Leela (giggles): It's yay I guess....
Fry (to Violet): Hey sweetie, um, I'm your daddy, Fry.
Leela: YOU'RE NOT SUPPOSED TO TELL HER YOUR NAME! You idiot!
Fry: Hey don't swear around the baby!
Violet: I AM NO BABY!!!!
Leela: Yeah you tell him mutant girl!
Fry: Well I'm her dad, so doesn't that make me a mutant too?
Leela: NO! Idiot, it makes her half mutant and half human.
Violet: Mommy mommy!!!!
Leela: Oh, hey darl (she hugs Violet)
[Scene: Outside Planet Express building, 7:35pm.]
Fry: Well say goodbye to mommy, you're coming home with me!
Violet: Bye momm-
Leela: No, say goodbye to daddy, you have to stay with me because daddy's house is NOT suitable for kids.
Fry: HEY! My apartment is infested with owls, spiders and other discusting, foul creatures - so it's perfectly safe for a 8 year old girl to live in.
Leela: Fry, for one she's 3 NOT 8, and number two, a appartment infested with owls and other foul creatures is NOT suitable for a 3 year old to live in, so, if you'll excuse us we have to get home!
Violet: Mommy I'm cold.
Leela: Aww I'm sorry honey, but I don't have jacket for you....
Fry(running up to them): Wait! Here, have mine.(he hands it to Violet)
Leela: Uhh I don't know, when did you last wash it?
Fry: Never - Uh, I mean yesterday?
Leela: NO WAY! Violet give it back, or you'll get some sort of disease.
Violet: NO, NO, NOOOOO!!!!
Leela: But - Uhhh what about daddy, he'll freeze!
Fry: It's ok, I put the people I love first.
Leela: Awww.... Uh, I mean uggghh.
Violet: I love you, daddy (hugs and kisses Fry)
Leela: I lo - no wait, ummm, uhh, Bye, yeah, bye Fry, thanks for letting Violet your jacket, I'll give it back to you tomorrow.
Fry: Thats ok, um, bye!
Leela looks around and kisses Fry quickly
Leela and Violet run off home
[Scene: Leela's Apartment 1I, 9:00pm.]
Leela: Ok you can sleep on the couch, Violet.
[There was no answer.]
Leela: Violet? VIOLET???
Leela sees Violet sleeping in Leela's bed.
Leela: Violet? (she tries to wake her) Oh ok you can sleep here.
[Leela bends over to kiss Violet but she felt something soft underneath Violet's hands, it was Fry's jaket.]
Leela: Uggghh! (Leela tries to take it away, but Violet has a good grip on it and won't let go)
[Leela leavs the bedroom and sleeps on the couch.]
Leela (yawns): I hope this doesn't happen EVERY night.
[Scene: Next day, 3:30 am.]
[Leela wakes up by the sound of crying coming from the bedroom.]
Leela (running): Violet? Violet? Are you ok?
Leela enters the room, worried.
Leela: Violet, please tell me what happened.
Violet (sniffs): I want daddy.
Leela: Sorry hun but daddy isn't here right now....
Violet starts to cry again.
Leela: Awww, ok, I'll call him for you.
Leela calls Fry.
Fry (yawns): Hello?
Leela: Oh sorry Fry, it's just that Violet was crying and she wanted you....
Fry: Hey, thats ok, don't worry about it!
Leela (smiles): Thanks, anyway, here's Violet.
Violet: Hi daddy!!!!
Fry: Hey darlin!
Violet: Daddy, one day, when I get bigger, can i sleep over at your house?
Fry: Um, I don't know honey, you'll have to ask mommy.
Violet: Mommy? Can I?
Leela: Maybe, I'll talk to daddy about it.
Fry: YOU WILL?
Leela: Yes I - won't, Fry, later, at work!
Fry: Oh ok(winks at Violet)
[Scene: Planet Express building, 10:00 am]
[Leela is watching T.V on the couch]
Fry (entering the room): Hey Leela, um, wheres Violet?
Leela (yawns): Um, oh, Violet, right, uhh, she's somewhere around here...
Fry: So you don't know where she is right?
Fry: I'll go find her!
[Fry leavs the T.V room, Leela has fallen asleep on the couch.]
Scene: The ship, 10:10 am.
[Violet is playing with the Planet Express ship toy]
Fry: Hey kid, watcha doin?
Violet: WHAAA??? Oh hi daddy.
Fry: Hey, sorry if I scared you...
Violet: Thats ok
Fry (smiles): So, what up?
Fry: Oh never mind...
Violet: Where's mommy?
Fry: She's sleeping.
Violet: Do you love mommy?
Fry: Yes, I do.
Violet: Then why don't you live with us?
Fry: Well, your a bit young to understand, but...
Bender: Hey losers.
Violet: I AM NO LOSER!!!
Bender: Woah, Fry you got a kid? Who's the mamma?
Fry: It's Leela, and no, we didn't get hitched unfortunately.
Bender: The how was this thing brought up?
Fry: Well, her name's Violet and she's 3 years old, she was born during the time skips - while Leela and I where "together" and got married. After that, She lived in the ophinarioum until now...
Violet: I don't like it there...
Bender: Yeah, I'm sure I wouldn't like living in an ophinarioum too if I was teased because of having 1 eye and having mean parents who don't love me either.
Bender: Well thats how she probably felt in there.
Violet: It's true daddy.
Bender: See? Bender's right as always, anit I?
Fry (lying): Yes.
Bender: Exactly, now, if you meatbags will excuse me, I have people to annoy and things to steal. (Bender leaves)
Fry: Lets go see mommy!
[They arrive at the T.V room to see Leela fast asleep.]
Violet: MOMMY, MOMMY!!!!
Fry: Shhhhh, Violet, she's sleeping.
Violet: But daddy...
Fry: Don't wake her.
[Violet starts to cry.]
Violet: WAAA, WAAA, WAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!
Fry (sighs): Come on honey, please let mommy sleep.
[Leela starts to stir in her sleep.]
Fry: Uhhh, Oh, I know! Um Violet, why don't you go and annoy Bender!
[Violet stops crying]
Violet: YEAH, YEAH, BENDER!!!
[Violet rushes out of the room.]
Fry (sighs): Thank god.
[Fry sits down on the couch next to Leela and notices that she is shivering, so, without hesitating, Fry gently puts his jacket over her to keep her warm.]
Fry (whispering): There.
[Leela smiles warmly in her sleep.]
Fry (sighs): She's so beautiful, I could sit here forever, watching her sleep, peacefully. I truly love her, with all my heart.
[Suddenly, Leela grabs hold of Fry's arm.]
Fry (looking at his arm): What the?
[Tears are forming in Leela's eye.]
Fry: Hey, hey, shhh, it's ok Leela, it's ok.
[Leela smiles, slightly.]
Fry: Leela? Leela?
[Leela starts to wake up.]
Fry (relived): Leela, are you ok?
Leela (yawns): Fry? Oh Fry, you're alive!!!
Fry: Uh, Leela, I've always been alive.
Leela: Really? So it was a dream...
Fry: Leela, are you ok?
[Leela shakes her head.]
Fry: What happened?
Leela: It was awful...
Fry: What was?
Leela: My dream.
Fry: What dream?
Leela: The one I just had.
Fry: Oh... Tell me what happened.
Leela: You wouldn't understand...
Fry: What makes you think that?
Leela: Look I just don't want to talk about it ok?
Fry (shyly): Ok... Do you want me to leave?
Leela: NO! Stay, please, anyway don't you wanna hear about my dream?
Fry: Uh yeah, but I thought you said that you didn't want to talk about it?
Leela (smiles): A woman can change her mind...
Fry (smiles): Ok, go on.
Leela: Well, it all started when we were at Planet Express one morning, we where sitting around the conference table, talking about our previous mission to the Galaxy Of Doom.
Fry: He, thats a weird name for a galaxy...
Leela: Yeah, anyway, everyone was there...
Leela: Well almost everyone...
Fry: Who was missing?
Leela (tears start rolling down her eye): You.
Fry: Me?!? What happened to me?
Leela (sniffs): You where badly injured during the mission.
Fry: How badly?
Leela: Very bad.
Leela (wipes away her tears): And because of that you weren't there.
Fry: What happened to me?
Leela: You... You... (takes a breath) You.. Died. You Died.
Fry (gasps): Oh, Leela...
[Leela hugs Fry and he gently strokes her hair.]
Leela (crying): And the worst part was that I had to tell you something, something very important about our relationship.
Fry (hopeful): Relationship?
Leela (correcting herself): Friendship, yes friendship.
Fry (disappointed): Oh...
Leela: And I never got to tell you...
Fry: Oh, Leela, I'm so sorry.
Leela: It's ok.
Fry: No! It's not ok, what if you keep having these dreams? It'll be horrible for you, it'll haunt you for the rest of your life.
Leela: I think I only had that dream because I am under a lot of stress, thats all.
Fry: I hope so...
