Looking Up at the Stars
By Rush

Scene: Planet Express: Upper Balcony. At night Fry stands with his hand holding onto the railings looking up at the stars looking depressed. Leela comes walking up the stairs from behind him.

Leela: (softly) 'Fry ...

[Fry doesn't turn around to face her.]

Fry: (formally) 'Leela.

[Leela takes a few steps towards him.]

Leela: 'Fry, I didn't want to do it with him, I just did it to save the Human race

Fry: (softly) 'I know, [Fry turns around to face her, tears running down his cheeks.] you're right I'm sorry you did what you had to, I just hope that things between you and Zapp are--

Leela: 'Fry! There's nothing between me and that ass face, I hate him all the more now than I ever did, which was a alot, and I love you, Fry, and no other.

Fry: 'You-you do?

Leela: (impatiently) 'Yes! [breaks into tears taking hold of Fry's hands.] Fry, please forgive me.

Fry: 'I forgive you, and I love you too, and no other.

[Fry and Leela draw close, Leela places her hands on his shoulders, bringing them down to his hips while Fry does the same to her. And they kiss deeply and tenderly together, with a few tears running down the sides of their cheeks.]

[Time Lapse. Fry and Leela both pull out of the kiss still holding each other tightly.]


Fry: 'Leela?


Leela: 'Mmm?

Fry: 'Do you remember when I placed my hand on yours up here a few years ago?

Leela: 'Yes, I must say I felt very happy.

Fry: 'Me too, but I also felt that maybe you and I could of gotten together then and there.

Leela: 'Looking back on it now, I agree.

Fry: 'If it wasn't for Zoidberg.

[Leela nods.]
