Short Trip
By Rush

Scene: Planet Express: Meeting Room. Fry, Leela and Bender sit around the conference table, there is a wooden crate on the table. A door slides open, followed by Farnsworth walking in with his hands in the air.

Farnsworth: 'Good news everyone!

Bender: 'We're gonna die some horrible death on some God forsaken planet?

Farnsworth: 'Oh not yet, I'm not sending you to your deaths on some stupid suicidally dangerous mission or delivery for you today.

Bender: 'Right.

Fry: 'Oh, thank God.

Farnsworth: 'Anyhoo you will be delivering this crate of knifes and forks to the Café across the street.

Leela: 'That's it?

Farnsworth: 'Yes. [Leela stands up, then picks up the crate.]

Leela: 'Alright guys, let's just walk across the street and--

Farnsworth: (shouting) 'No! You must fly the ship across the street to deliver them!

Leela: 'But what's the point of all that?

Farnsworth: (shouting) 'Our company's reputation, we can't let them think we're a non intergalactic delivery company.

Leela: 'But can't I just tell them that we are just across the street from them and--

Farnsworth: (shouting) 'Nooooooo!

Leela: 'Fine. (To Fry and Bender) 'Come on, let's go. [Fry, Leela and Bender walk up the steps of the Planet Express ship.]

Cut to: Outside Planet Express. The hanger doors open, followed by the PE ship taking off, which flies across the street and lands in a parking space outside the Cafe from Parasites Lost. Fry carrying the crate, Leela and Bender exit the PE ship, then enter the Café. Within a minute or less; all three walk back out of the Café, then enter the PE Ship. The PE ship takes off and flies across the street, then lands in the hanger of Planet Express, the hanger doors closing up shortly afterwards when they've landed.

Cut to: Planet Express: Hanger. Fry, Leela and Bender walk down the steps of the PE ship, Farnsworth walks towards them.

Farnsworth: 'So, how was your trip?

Leela: 'It was pointless and short.

Fry: 'So are we done for today?

Farnsworth: 'Yep, now you can just sit around here watching TV and playing video games all day.

Fry and Bender: 'Yay! [Fry and Bender high five, then run out of the room laughing.]

Leela: 'Should I do some paperwork?

Farnsworth: 'Nah, Hermes wants to do extra paperwork today.

[Leela sighs.]

Leela: 'Alright, fine. I guess I'll play Team Fortess 2 with Fry and Bender. [She walks out of the room.]
