Luck Of The Stars
By Rush

Scene: Planet Express: Attic Room. All the staff including all of the Globetrotters stand near the blackboard.

Farnsworth: 'Perhaps we could explode the whole damned nebula. What do you think, Curly Joe?

Curly Joe: 'No, man. An explosion big enough to destroy that mama would take out half the universe.

Sweet Clyde: 'You gotta Globetrotter that explosion up a little, Farnsy. Make it an implosion.

Farnsworth: 'By God, Sweet Clyde is right. An implosion might just form a black hole that would stop more Chronitons from escaping.

Tate: 'Whoa. Slow that brain train down, Prof. We'd need some kind of doomsday device to initiate an implosion like that.

Farnsworth: 'Doomsday device? Ah! Now the ball's in Farnsworth's court! [He presses a button and a machine rises out of the floor.] I suppose I could part with one and still be feared.

Tate: 'Give me some skin, Prof. I'm making you an honorary Globetrotter. In fact, everybody in this room's an honorary Globetrotter.

Bender: [cheering with his hands in the air] 'Yay! Wooo, yeah.

Amy: 'Yahoo!

Hermes: 'Yes!

Zoidberg: 'I'm a Globetrotter!

Sometime later: The Planet Express ship flies towards the "Tempus Nebula" and Bender emerges from the starboard torpedo tube holding the doomsday device. He is tethered to the ship and wearing a jet pack. The tether jerks and Bender lets go of the doomsday device.]

Bender: 'Oh! No!

[He quickly grabs it again.]

Leela: [on radio] 'Careful with that doomsday device, Bender.

Bender: 'Got that! I'll be careful. I've got a lot to live for, unlikes yous, ha ha ha ha, cause I'm a Globetrotter.

Leela: [on radio] 'Roger.

Scene: Planet Express Ship's Cockpit. Both Fry and Leela stand near the window, she turns the radio off and faces him.

Fry: 'Leela, about the wedding. I don't know what I did to make you love me, and I don't think I tricked you into it, but maybe I did. And if I did, I'm sorry.

Leela: 'It's OK, Fry. You know we'll always be friends, right?

Fry: 'Yeah. But I don't guess anything I could do will ever make you feel the same way about me that I do about you.

Leela: 'I guess not.

[She takes his hand, kisses him on the cheek and walks away. Bender walks in, dusting his hands.]

Bender: 'Well, the doomsday device is ready. So, let's blast this quadrant of space into a hell storm of flaming nothingness, that will make me even more happier.

Leela: 'OK. Let me just take the ship out to a safe distance. [She is about to sit down when she sees Fry still looking sad.] Actually, I think I'll go down and prep the detonator. Fry, why don't you take the helm?

Bender: 'Leela, I'd be worried about that decision. Let me do it, while you keep a eye on em and make sure he doesn't do anything too hush, stupid or like ram us straight into a star, or even into that black-hole.

Leela: 'Your right, I'll stay here and keep a eye on Fry.

[Fry frowns and sits in the chair. Bender leaves.]

[There is awkward silence between Fry and Leela.]

[Fry presses some buttons.]

Cut to: Space. The ship flies away from the nebula.

Cut to: Ships Cockpit. Fry looks through the window.

Fry: 'Oh! Leela, look!

[Leela eye wides not believing what's she is seeing.]

[They walks to the window and presses their faces against the glass. As the ship gets further away from the nebula they see the stars around it form an "O" in a huge message that reads "I Love You, Leela".]

Leela: (tears filling her eye] 'This is it! The so called trick!

Fry: 'No! Leela, that's what I must of done! I moved the stars themselves to write you a love note in the sky.

Leela: (crying) 'By using the gravity pump. (shouting) Oh, Fry, hold me!

[she pulls him into a bear-hug and rests her head on his shoulder.]

Bender: [on intercom] 'Detonation in three, two, one.

Fry and Leela: (screaming) 'Noooooooooooo!

[The doomsday device implodes and the nebula, the stars and Fry's message disappear.]

Bender: [on intercom] 'Boom! Ha, ha ha ha ha.

Fry and Leela stare at the empty void for a few seconds before turning back to face each other again.]

Leela: (crying) 'Fry, kiss me.

Fry: 'Wha?

Leela: (crying /shouting) 'Kiss me!

Fry: 'Kiss you? (nervously) Uh, but I'm too nervo--

Leela: (crying /shouting) 'Then I'll kiss you!

[Leela French kisses Fry passionately. Bender walks in, seeing this he waves his arms in the air leaning backward, backing out slowly.]

Leela: 'Mmmm. [breaks the kiss.] (a softness in her voice that she would use for Nibbler when he was hurt) Oh, Fry. You must of just did probably the signal most beautiful, romantic thing imaginable, to tell the woman you love how you feel.

Fry: (crying) 'But it's gone now.

Leela: (very very softy) 'Yes, it's gone. But it's message is not, Fry.

Fry: (crying) 'What do you mean?

Leela: (very very softy) 'Fry, that is what you did to make me fall in love with you, isn't it?

Fry: (crying) 'Yes.

Leela: (very very softy) 'So, it's done it again.

Fry: 'What, your not kidding me?

Leela: (very very softy) 'No, I'm not kidding you. But I want you to say four words, or three, or even just two words to me.

Fry: (nervously) 'I um..I

Leela: (very very softy) 'Yes, Fry?

Fry: 'I love you, Leela. Is that what you wanted me to say? Cause I do, I really love you Leela, your my shining star.

Leela: (very very softy) 'Exactly. And Fry?

Fry: 'What?

Leela: (very very softy) 'Your my shining star too. I love you.

[Fry and Leela French kiss passionately. Bender walks in again, seeing this he waves his arms in the air leaning backward, backing out slowly. Leela then leans forward, going further and further trying to lean into his arms.]

Fry: 'Whoa!

[Fry falls over onto the floor with Leela on top of him.]

Fry: 'Ow! My Occipital bone!

Leela: [some tears in her eye] 'Oh, I'm so sorry Fry baby. Are you hurt badly?

Fry: 'No, I'm Ok.

Leela: (very very softy) 'Well, in that case.

[Leela leans forward pressing her lips against Fry's lips. Bender walks in yet again, seeing this he waves his arms in the air leaning backward, backing out slowly.]

Leela: (speaking between kisses) 'Mmmmm, I love you. Mmmmmmm, Fry.

Fry: (speaking between kisses) 'Mmmmm, I love you too... [long kiss.]...Mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, Leela.

[They continue to kiss for like a hour, until Leela finally gets up and helps Fry up at the same time.]

Leela: 'Fry, I'm gonna reconsider something I did to you.

Fry: 'What are you exactly reconsidering?

Cut to: Fry and Leela standing before Judge Whitey in court.

Whitey: 'So you two mean to tell me, that you want to remarry and you only been technically divorce, for like a few hours?

Leela and Fry: 'Yes.

Whitey: 'Remarriage is final!

[He bangs his gavel.]

Fry: 'So, Leela you like to have kids don't you?

Leela: 'Yes.

[Fry and Leela wrap each others arms around one another and kiss passionately.]

Bender: (shouting in the background) 'Man, I can't understand you Humans. One minute you're married, then you're divorced and then you're married again, what's the dealy-o?!

The End
