Fan Fiction

On My Own
By Singer1108

(A month after the accident, Fry and Leela had hit a snag in their relationship. They were arguing at least twice a week, each one ending with Fry sleeping on the couch and Leela crying in the bedroom. This worst fight of all was happening on a cold November night in the living room of their apartment.)

Leela: Fry, I told you to clean this place!

Fry: I did clean!

Leela: Then what do you call this?

(she went over to the couch and pulled several t-shirts out from under and behind the cushions)

Fry: So I forgot to clean off the couch, what's the big deal?

Leela: The big deal is I asked you to do one small thing for me and you didn't!

Fry: Look, I'm sorry! You know I'm not exactly the most organized person in the world.

Leela: You aren't exactly the most clean person either.

Fry: What's the suppose to mean?

Leela: It means you're dirty! I mean seriously, when was the last time you showered?

Fry: I showered 6 days ago!

Leela: You should be taking a shower at least every other day!

Fry: Why every other day?

Leela: Because if you shower every day, you'll get split ends and eventually your hair will fall out.

Fry: Wait...seriously?

Leela: Yes, but that's not the point here. The point is you need to keep clean. Not only yourself, but your home too.

Fry: That's not fair! Morgan Proctor liked my mess.

Leela: Morgan Proctor's not your girlfriend, Fry. I am.

Fry: You aren't my mother either.

Leela: No, I'm not, but I'm sure she'd agree with me about your slop.

Fry: Oh c'mon Leela! Don' t you believe in the whole "opposites attract"?

Leela: Yes Fry, I do, But I also believe that the same thing can tear two people apart.

Fry: (shocked and quietly) W-what do you mean?

Leela: Fry, you and I are just...do different.

Fry: No Leela, please, don't do this. I can change.

Leela: Can you? I suppose you could...but let's be real here. You wouldn't even put the laundry away.

Fry: I'm sorry. I'm so sorry. Look, I'll do whatever you want just please Leela, don't do this.

Leela: I'm sorry Fry. I think we need to go our separate ways for a while.

Fry: Leela...

Leela: I understand you're hurt and believe me, I'm hurt too, but we need a break Fry. Think about it, we haven't stopped arguing since the day you came home from the hospital.

Fry: (quietly) But...

Leela: (puts hand on his shoulder) I'm sorry.

(Leela let her hand drop to her side as she turned to walk away. Fry stood frozen where he was unable to think, unable to breathe. He felt dizzy and watched as the walls began to spin. He fell back on the couch and closed his eyes, praying for the spinning to stop.)


(Fry reached for his cell phone in his pocket and called Bender. The line rang a few times before he answered)

Bender: Bender here.

Fry: (sniffling) Bender? I need a place to stay for a while.

Bender: Aw man, what happened? Big Boots cheat on you?

Fry: No, it's nothing like that.

Bender: Then tell me what happened! The suspense was killing me!

Fry: (sighs) She broke up with me, Bender.

Bender: What did you do now?

Fry: I don't really know, all I know is that it's over and I can't stay here tonight.

Bender: Hm, well I guess you can live in the closet again.

Fry: Thanks Bender. You're a good friend, you know?

Bender: Shut up, meatbag. I know it.


(Leela was in the bedroom sitting on the corner of the bed. Her melon sized eye was red and her cheeks stained with tears. She reached for a nearby tissue box, took out a tissue, ripped it in half and wiped the corner of her eye before picking up the phone to call Amy.)

Amy: Hello?

Fry: (sniffling) Amy?

Amy: Leela? Are you OK?

Leela: I-I-I broke up with Fry.

Amy: Oh no. Are you going to be OK?

Leela: (cries harder) I really don't think so.

Amy: Do you need me to come over?

Leela: Do you mind? I really don't know what to do.

Amy: I'll be there as soon as I can. How's Fry taking it?

Leela: I have no idea. He's probably already called Bender.

Amy: I'll pack a bag and stay with you tonight. How's that sound?

Leela: It sounds great.

Amy: OK, I'll be there soon. Hang in there, alright?

Leela: (sniffles) I'll try.


(Amy showed up about ten minutes after she and Leela got off the phone. She was carrying a large pink bag which was overloaded with clothes and cartons of frozen yogurt. When she rang the doorbell, it was Fry who answered.)

Amy: Hey Fry, I heard about what happened.

Fry: Yeah...

Amy: Are you going to be OK?

Fry: I don't know. I'm going to stay with bender for a while.

Amy: At least you have somewhere to go. If you need anything at all, don't hesitate to call me, OK?

Fry: Alright.

Amy: How's Leela?

Fry: No idea. She's been upstairs since the...the...

Amy: Break up?

Fry: Y-yeah. That.

Amy: I'm going to to check on her.

Fry: Okay.

(Amy kissed him on the cheek before going up the stairs to the bedroom. When she reached the door, she heard stifled cries coming from behind it. She knocked gently and entered. Leela was laying in the fetal position in the middle of the bed. She was surrounded with used tissues. Nibbler was laying beside her, trying to give her comfort and support. Leela opened her eye as Amy walked in and slowly sat up, wiping the corners of her eye.)

Leela: Hey Amy.

Amy: Leela, you look like hell.

Leela: Thanks. That's just what I want to hear in a time like this.

Amy: I'm sorry. Look, I brought you frozen yogurt!

Leela: (lightening up) You did?

Amy: Yep. Strawberry Banana.

Leela: Can I have one? I could really use it.

Amy: Duh.

(She reached into her bag and pulled out a yogurt. Leela snatched it up immediately and ate small bites while letting her tears fall down her cheeks.)

Amy: (sits next to Leela) Hey, don't cry. Everything is going to be OK.

Leela: I just broke up with the greatest person I've ever dated. How is everything going to be OK?

Amy: I'm sure once you two take a small break, things will work out.

Leela: You think so?

Amy: I know so. How could it get worse?

Leela: I guess you're right. How is he, by the way?

Amy: He's heartbroken, can barely speak, but he seems to be OK.

Leela: (rolling her eye) You really know how to make a person feel better.

Amy: (realizing what she said) Oh. Oops.

Leela: Hand me another frozen yogurt.

Amy: But didn't you just have one a minute ago?

Leela: Yes, but I need another one.

Amy: (handing yogurt to Leela) Wow, this break up is really getting to you huh?

Leela: (takes a bite) It's not just that.

Amy: Then what is it?

Leela: (pause) I'm pregnant, Amy.


(Fry was packing his bags when the taxi pulled out in front of the house. The driver honked, and Fry zipped his bag before walking out the door. He shoved his bag in the trunk before getting in the car)

Driver: Where ya heading?

Fry: Robot Arms apartments.

Driver: You look like hell Buddy. What's eating ya?

Fry: I don't wanna talk about it.

Driver: Well hang in there. Whatever happened will resolve itself in the end.

Fry: (to himself) I sure hope you're right.


(The cab driver pulled in front of the apartment building and Fry paid the tab. He removed his bag from the trunk then walked into the building only to stand in front of Bender's apartment, staring at the number: 00100100)

Fry: I really hope he's home. (he knocks gently)

Bender: Coming!

(He opened the door and stared at Fry)

Bender: Whoa. I haven't seen you like this since you decided not to clone Seymour.

Fry: (frustrated) Can I come in, Bender? I really need a beer.

(Fry shoved Bender out of the way and walked into the barren room)

Bender: You could have said please.

Fry: Not now, Bender.

Bender: Hey, you should be thankful I'm even letting you stay with me again!

Fry: And I am, but my girlfriend just dumped me. Do you really expect me to be happy?

Bender: You should be. Now you can find a new girlfriend.

Fry: I don't want a new girlfriend.

Bender: Too bad. Good ol' Bender is going to help you.

Fry: Bender, I just got dumped. What makes you think I'm ready to date again?

Bender: Oh come on Fry! Live a little!

Fry: Try coming back in a few weeks.

Bender: By then, the offer will have expired.

Fry: Oh well.

Bender: (angrily) That's it Fry! You are coming with me tonight! I'm going to fix you up with the prettiest girl in New New York and you're going to thank me!

Fry: Whatever Bender.


Amy: Are you serious? How long have you known?

Leela: About three weeks.

Amy: And you haven't told Fry?!

Leela: No! I don't want to tell him.

Amy: Why not? I think he should know about that.

Leela: I don't want him to be upset.

Amy: Why would he be upset?

Leela: (sighs) I don't know.

Amy: I think he's going to be more upset over the fact that you didn't tell him sooner.

Leela: i know, I know. What am I going to do?

Amy: Call him right now and tell him. He needs to know

Leela: Yeah, i guess you're right.

Amy: It's going to be ok, Leela. You can do this.

(Leela reached for the phone but pulled her hand back when it began to ring. Reflexively, she grabbed it and answered.)

Leela: Hello?

Bender: Oh good, it's you. Listen, i just wanted to tell you that Fry is going out tonight with the prettiest girl in New New York and that he is completely over you.

Leela: What?

Bender: You heard me, meaty. He doesn't need you anymore.

Leela: Let me talk to him!

Bender: No way, I'm not going to let you ruin this for him.

Leela: Since when did you care about whats best for him?

Bender: Since now. Anyway, I gotta go make Fry stop crying. Later, Big Boots.

Leela: Wait, let me talk to-

(The line was disconnected before she could finish the sentence. She hung up the phone and sat it on the bedside table.)

Amy: Well?

Leela: He's going out tonight.

Amy: What?!

Leela: He's...already over me.

Amy: That's impossible! It's only been a few hours!

Leela: I'm going to have to raise this baby on my own.

Amy: That's not true. You have you're friends and family to help you.

Leela: (wails) I'm going to have to explain to this baby why they don't have a father!!

Amy: (pats leela's shoulder) Calm down, everything is going to be just fine.

Leela: How can you say that? How can you possibly know that?

Amy: It's just this feeling I have.


(Fry was silently crying on Bender's couch as he listened to the phone conversation going on in the other room)

Fry: (to himself) What does he think he's doing?

(Bender appeared in the room with a smug look on his shiny metal face)

Bender: Well, mission accomplished.

Fry: What the hell did you do that for?! You hurt both her and me!

Bender: You'll get over it.

Fry: I can't believe you Bender! After all Leela and i have been through, you do and do something like that? How could you!?

Bender: You'll thank me for this in the long run. Now quit your moping and clean yourself up.

Fry: No! I'm not going anywhere!

Bender: Oh yes you are. I promised this girl I'd find her a date tonight and I'm not getting paid to play matchmaker for nothing.

Fry: Why should I listen to you?

Bender: Because I'm the greatest and anyone who doesn't listen to me gets one hell of an ass beating.

Fry: Fine! I'll go on this stupid date, but don't expect me to like it!

Bender: Now that's what I want to hear. I'll go call her and let her know where to meet us.

(Bender scurried off to go make the call leaving Fry alone. He rubbed his forehead between his thumb and index finger and leaned back on the couch)

Fry: (to himself) Who knew it could be so hard being on my own.


(Leela was curled into a tight ball crying her eye out as Amy tried to calm her down)

Amy: How about we go see a movie?

Leela: Movie? Fry and I use to go see movies.

Amy: Uh, ok well, how about we go for a walk?

Leela: (wails) We use to go for walks!

Amy: Ugh. Well what do you want to do?

Leela: (sniffs) I want to go get Fry back.

Amy: Leela, i don't know about that.

Leela: Why?

Amy: Well for starters, you look like a whale spit you out the blow hole.

Leela: (confused) Yeah...well, Fry never cared.

Amy: Look, you just wait here. I'm going to go order us some pizza, ok?

Leela: Pizza? (whimpers) Fry use to deliver pizza.


(An hour Later, Fry was in the shower, the hot water relaxing his muscles, the steam burning his nose. He turned the water off, grabbed a towell and wrapped it comfortably abound his waist before stepping out into the cold, moist tile. The mirror was clouded with condensation, making it impossible to see himself. He reached his hand out and wiped one big circle clear. He stared at his face and then into the reflection of his own eyes.)

Fry: (quietly) I don't know what I did Leela, but I'm sorry. I'll always love you.

(Suddenly, his phone began to ring. He walked out of the bathroom and dug it out of the pocket of his pants laying on the floor.)

Fry: Hello?

Amy: Fry? It's Amy. Look, we really need to talk.


(Fry swallowed back the lump that formed in his throat.)

Fry: What about?

Amy: What do you think? Leela's a total mess.

Fry: Yeah, well, so am I.

Amy: She really needs to talk to you.

Fry: Then why isn't she the one talking?

Amy: Because she thinks you're already over her.

Fry: What?

Amy: What's this about you going out tonight?

Fry: I'm being forced to.

Amy: You have a mind of your own, use it.

Fry: I'm trying, but Bender is threatening to beat me if I don't go through with this.

Amy: That's insane.

Fry: Yeah well, what are you going to do?

Amy: Listen, there is something you need to know, but it's not my job to tell you.

Fry: Then put Leela on the phone.

Amy: I can't, she thinks I'm ordering pizza.

Fry: (impressed) Oh, nice move.

Amy: Look Fry, the both of us know you are a total mess right now and I'm not sure how much longer I can do this. Just do me a favor and please...I'm begging you, don't ignore Leela if she calls you, ok? There is something really important she has to tell you and it's best that you listen.

Fry: What are you-

Bender: (in the background) Yo meatbag, hurry up. We're meeting Tara at Elzar's in twenty minutes!

Amy: Promise me?

Fry: (sighs) Yeah, I promise.

Amy: Good. Now i gotta go. I should probably order that pizza before Leela gets suspicious.

Fry: Yeah.

Amy: Talk to you later.

Fry: Bye.

Amy: Later.


(Fry sat the phone gently on the nightstand and put a dark blue shirt on. He didn't feel like getting too fancied up, so he threw his usual red jacket on and put on a pair of jeans. He ran a comb through his hair, picked his phone up, put it in his pocket and walked into the living room where Bender was waiting.)

Bender: (tapping his foot) And what took you so long?

Fry: Amy called.

Bender: And wince when was Amy more important than me?

Fry: Save it, Bender.

Bender: Well, if you're done, we should be leaving. Tara is waiting.

Fry: Tara..right.


(After Amy hung up with Fry, she placed an order for a large cheese pizza with a six pack of slurm.)

Pizza Dude: Ok, your order comes to $10.77

Amy: Do you take credit cards?

Pizza Dude: Yes.

Amy: Hm, it doesn't seem to be in my wallet. I'll just pay with cash.

Pizza Dude: Uh, ok. Your pizza should be there in fifteen minutes.

Amy: Kay, thanks.

(She hung up the phone and sighed)

Amy: This is going to be a long night.


(Leela was sitting on the edge of the bed, her phone gripped tightly in her hands.)

Leela: I've got to talk to him right now. He needs to know.

(her hands remained frozen)

Leela: Come on girl, you can do this. He won't be mad.)

(Still, no movement)

Leela: It's no use! I can't do this now.

(She put the phone on the bedside table and rolled onto her back)

Leela: I'm weak.

(She closed her eye and tried to relax. She had stopped crying, realizing that it wasn't fair to Amy.)

Leela: When is that god forsaken pizza going to get here?

(She opened her eye and sat up on the bed. the phone reflected in the light, almost like it was trying to catch her attention.)

Leela: Oh no you don't. You aren't going to tempt me.

(The phone glistened)

Leela: I can't call him right now!

(It glistened again)

Leela: Well what do you want me to do, text him?

(Yet another glisten)

Leela: I guess that's not a bad idea. Thanks.

Amy: (vo) Who are you talking to?

Leela: The cell phone.

(Amy stared at her. Leela smacked herself gently on the forehead)

Leela: I have officially lost it, haven't I?

Amy: Maybe some pizza will help.

Leela: Maybe.

Amy: Did you call Fry yet?

Leela: No, i was about to message him when you came in.

Amy: Ah.

Leela: Do you think he'll answer?

Amy: He should.

Leela: Should?

Amy: I uh, meant to say will. He'll answer.

Leela: I hope so.

(she picked up the phone and began to type her message)

Leela: Here goes nothing.

(she took a deep breath before moving her finger to the send key.)


Bender: Ok, we're here. Go in there and show this girl a good time.

Fry: (sarcastically) I'll try.

Bender: Oh look! There she is.

(Tara was tall with long, wavy black cherry hair. She had blue eyes and a piercing in her left eyebrow. She wore a fitted clack velvet dress with a set of shiny studded combat boots. Rubber bracelets of every color sat comfortably around her wrists, and a beaded rainbow necklace draped down her front. Her nails were painted purple, which seemed to reflect of her pale skin)

Fry: (whispering) Whoa Bender, where did you find her?

Bender: That's not important, although she didn't look like that when I found her.

Fry: Is that a bad thing?

Bender: Depends on how you look at it.

Fry: Well, I'll give you credit. She really is pretty.

Bender: Bender knows how to pick 'em.

(Tara approached Fry with a smile on her face, her arms folded behind her back)

Tara: Hi there.

Fry: Hey.

Bender: Tara, this is Fry. Fry, this is Tara.

Tara: (reaches hand out) Nice to meet you.

Fry: Same.

Bender: Well, I'm going to leave you two lovebirds alone. Go ahead and take this and buy whatever you want as long as it's not over fifty bucks.

Fry: I didn't know you had a credit card.

Bender: I don't. It's Amy's.

Fry: Thanks anyway, Bender. I've got this one.

(Tara looped her arm through Fry's and the two of them walked into Elzars together. They stood in line for about five minutes before they were seated at a table for two.)

Fry: So, how did you meet Bender?

Tara: I found him in an alley a few blocks from here.

Fry: An alley?

Tara: I think he was sleepwalking.

Fry: Oh...can robots sleepwalk?

Tara: (giggles) I have no idea.

Fry: Me either. I lived with bender for years and I never saw him sleepwalk.

Tara: I could be wrong. He did seem a little out of it when I found him.

Fry: Did he have rust on his face?

Tara: I think so. It was dark, so I can't say for sure.

Fry: If he had rust on his face, it means he was sober.

Tara: Uh oh. That's not too good.

Fry: So tell me about yourself.

Tara: Well, my name is Tara Denyer. I'm 27 with no kids, and I work for the animal clinic on 5th avenue.

Fry: Interesting.

Tara: Ok, now it's your turn.

Fry: Well, I'm Phil Fry, I'm from the twentieth century, and I work for the Planet Express delivery company.

Tara: No way! You're that Fry? Do you work with a Turanga Leela?

Fry: Y-yeah. How'd you know?

Tara: Leela comes in all the time with little nibbler. She talks about you a lot.

Fry: Really? Talk about a small wold.

Tara: I'll say.

Fry: So, how long have you been in New New York?

Tara: All my life. I grew up in Queens.

Fry: What was that like?

Tara: I'd rather not say. I had a rough childhood.

Fry: Oh, I'm sorry to hear that.

Tara: How about you? What was your childhood like?

Fry: Normal I guess. Nothing too exciting to talk about there.

Tara: I see.

(They sat in silence)

Fry: (thinking) she talks about me all the time to random people?

Tara: So, do you have any kids?

Fry: (snapping back to reality) Uh, no.

Tara: Do you want any?

Fry: Well, yeah, someday.

Tara: How many?

Fry: At least two. I don't like the idea of one being lonely.

Tara: That's sweet.

Fry: Yeah.

Tara: Are you ok? You seem bothered by something.

Fry: Oh, yeah, I'm fine.

Tara: Are you sure?

Fry: Yes...no.

Tara: No?

Fry: It's just that, well see, my girlfriend broke up with me this morning.

Tara: Oh wow.

Fry: And I can't figure out what I did.

Tara: I'm so sorry.

Fry: She kicked me out, so I called Bender and he said I could stay with him, but when I got there, he told me about you needing a date tonight and even though I knew I wasn't ready...

Tara: I see.

Fry: Look Tara, you're great, really. And beautiful too. But my heart isn't ready for this just yet.

Tara: I understand. I should have known better than to trust a robot.

Fry: We can still be friends. Ya know, if you're up for it.

Tara: Yeah. Sure, we can be friends.

Fry: That's good.

(The sound of Fry's cell phone echoed in their ears.)

Fry: Oh sorry! One second!

(He opened the phone and opened the message. His eyes went wide and his mouth went dry. The words were burning in his brain.)

Fry, I'm pregnant.

Fry: Oh my god.

Tara: What? What is it?

Fry: I have to go. I have to see Leela.

Tara: Why?

Fry: She's pregnant!


Leela: Oh god, what did I just do?

Amy: Easy girl.

Leela: (rocking back and forth) Seriously, what did I just do?

Amy: Sent a message to Fry.

Leela: I was afraid I did that.

Amy: He'll call, he has to.

Leela: I'm too nervous to answer!

Amy: Leela! You have to pull yourself together! You're a grown woman and you're acting so childish!

Leela: I am not!

Amy: Are too!

Leela: Am not!

Amy: (rolling her eyes) I rest my case.


Tara: Leela's pregnant?! By whom?

Fry: By me!

Tara: Ooh, it all makes sense now.

Fry: What does.

Tara: Why she always talked about you. You are her boyfriend.

Fry: Surprise?

Tara: It's a big one, but what are you still doing here? Go to her!

Fry: Seriously?

Tara: Yeah. Trust me, she won't be adverse to seeing you right now.

Fry: (smiles) Thanks.

Tara: No problem.

Fry: Listen, if you ever want to hang out or something, I'll be open.

Tara: Sounds good. Now get out of here!

Fry: You got it!

(Fry jumped up from the table, grabbed his jacket and darted out the door)

Fry: TAXI!

(the taxi whizzed passed without stopping)

Fry: Looks like I'm running.


Leela: He's not answering me!

Amy: He will, trust me.

Leela: (starts to cry) He doesn't care.

Amy: Yes he does.

Leela: If he cared, he'd call by now.

Amy: Don't give up hope, Leela. Not yet.


(Fry was sprinting down the streets of New New York, his lungs about to burst. His knees buckled and down he fell, but instantly he rose up and took off into a full sprint once more.)

Fry: Almost there!


Leela: (rubbing her stomach) I'm so sorry baby.

Amy: Leela, he will call. Maybe right now he's buying flowers.

Leela: I doubt it.

Amy: Or maybe he left his phone at Bender's.

Leela: He doesn't go anywhere without it.

Amy: (looks out window) Or maybe he's running to come see you now.


(The lights of Leela's apartment building shone brighter than ever as Fry jogged up the steps. He ran until he couldn't run anymore and fell to his hands and knees in front of Leela's apartment.)

Fry: (Clutching chest) Stupid heart!

(Amy opened the door and helped him up)

Amy: Are you ok?

Fry: I'm fine. How'd you know I was here?

Amy: I saw you running.

Fry: Where's Leela?

Amy: In the bedroom.

Fry: Is it true? Is she really-

Amy: Just go ask her yourself.

(Fry walked to the door of the bedroom and walked in)

Fry: Leela, I came as soon as I heard. (he stares at her) You're crying.

Leela: I am not. I just have something really big in my eye, ok? (she gets up to leave)

Fry: Wait. Why did you break up with me?

Leela: Oh what, like it's inconceivable that a girl can resist Fry's many charms?

Fry: I'm serious, I want to know.

Leela: Maybe I was scared. Maybe I was afraid we'd screw everything up and I'd lose the one guy who means more to me than anyone in the whole world.

Fry: Oh...wow.

Leela: Is that all you can say?! What are you even doing here? I thought you were suppose to be out with the prettiest girl in New New York!

Fry: Well maybe I'm with the prettiest girl in New New York right now!

Leela: So why didn't you call me!

Fry: Maybe I was scared to!

Leela: Fry-

Fry: Just shut up and let me say something! I was out with a really nice girl and things should have been great, but all I could think about was you. Totally annoying, frustrating you.

Leela: I-

Fry: Leela, you're the only girl I want to be with. So I'm asking you...

(he got down on one knee and revealed a small black box. Inside was a small diamond ring)

Fry: Will you marry me?

Leela: (wipes the corner of her eye) Yes.

(Fry stands up and places his hand gently on her cheek. Leela looked up at him and leaned in closer. Their lips met and soon, the kiss turned into a full embrace.)


(Nine months had passed and Leela was being rushed to the hospital. Fry weaved the car in and out of traffic, speeding up every time Leela yelped in pain.)

Leela: Can't you go any faster?

Fry: If I go any faster, I'll end up killing us!

Leela: I didn't say drive like an idiot!

Fry: Well it's a little hard not to drive like an idiot when you're going 85 miles per hour!

Leela: (groans) Just get me to the hospital!

(Leela felt the car move faster and watched at the speedometer climbed to 90. She watched as Fry's knuckles turned white from gripping the wheel so tightly)

Leela: Fry, are you ok?

Fry: Don't worry about me.

Leela: Fry, it's ok to be scared. I am.

Fry: Really?

Leela: Of course I am, but you and I both know that we need to be brave.

Fry: I know.

Leela: There's nothing to worry about. Everything is going to be fine. I promise.

Fry: I know, I believe you.

Leela: Have you called Tara yet?

Fry: No, why?

Leela: I think she should know that I'm about to pop out a baby.

Fry: How about you call her. I'm busy driving.

Leela: (shrieks) AH! Go, there's no time!

Fry: Hold on, Leela! We're almost there!


(Two hours later, Leela was in the delivery room with Fry close to her side.)

Doctor: Come on Leela! Just one more push!

Leela: I can't!

Fry: Come on! You can do it!

(Leela took a deep breath and pushed. The sound of the baby's cry filled the room as tears fell down Leela's cheeks)

Doctor: Congratulations, it's a girl.

Leela: Really?

Fry: I can't believe it.

(the baby had bright orange hair and one eye. She had Leela's nose, Fry's ears and his mouth. Small dimples sat in her cheeks as she smiled when she viewed her parents for the first time.)

Doctor: Would you like to hold her?

Leela: Of course.

(The doctor handed her the baby)

Leela: She's beautiful.

Fry: She gets it from her mother. What do you want to name her?

Leela: I haven't really thought about it. Do you have a name?

Fry: I have one you might like.

Leela: And it is.

Fry: Gwen.

Leela: Gwen?

Fry: Yeah...what do you think.

Leela: (smiling) I think it's perfect.

Fry: Really?

Leela: Really really.

Fry: You know Leela, there's been something I wanted to ask you for a while now.

Leela: Fry, you've already asked me to marry you.

Fry: No, it's not that. I just want to know why you kept it a secret.

Leela:The pregnancy?

Fry: Yeah. I mean, you could have made it easier on the both of us if you just told me.

Leela: What, and miss all that drama? Never.

THE END!
