Luck With Them Old Stars
By Rush

Scene: Planet Express: Ship's Cockpit. Fry looks downcast depressed near the window, Bender walks in dusting his hands while Leela walks away from Fry towards Bender stopping near the driver seat.

Bender: 'Well, the doomsday device is ready. Maybe blasting this quadrant of space into a Hell storm of flaming nothingness will cheer me up a little.

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 depressed.] Actually, I think I'll go down and prep the detonator. Fry, why don't you take the helm?

[Fry looks up and smiles then sits in the driver seat as Leela leaves.]

Fry: 'She's so great. I feel like I can almost remember the magical thing I did to make her love me. But I guess I never will.

[Bender walks towards Fry and puts his hand on his shoulder.]

Bender: 'Sorry, buddy. I too know what it's like to have a dream I'll never achieve. Although speaking of which I think them stars moved ever so slightly, since I last saw em.

[He struts out like a pimp, slowly whistling the Globetrotter tune. Fry presses some buttons flying the ship away from the Tempus nebula. He spots sometime in conner of his sight curiosity gets the better of him as he takes look out through the window.]

Fry: 'Oh! [He walks to the window and presses his face against the glass. As the ship gets further away from the nebula he sees the stars at a distance around it form an "O" as the ship flies even feather away even more letters appear made with the stars forming words in a massive message that reads "I LOVE YOU, LEELA".] That's how I must have done it! I moved the stars themselves to write her a love note in the sky.

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

Fry: (screaming) 'No! [The doomsday device implodes forming a black-hole. The Tempus nebula and the Chronitons are sucked inside crushed to a infinite smallness.] (relieved, wiping the sweat off his forehead) Phew!

[Leela and Bender walk in, Fry is jumping in excitement seeing them.]

Bender: 'Yo, Fry? Got ants in you pants?

Fry: 'No! Leela have a look out here!

Leela: 'Fry there's only a black-hole out there.

Fry: 'Come on, Leela..[Fry gives her doggy eye look.] please.

[She signs closing her eye, then walks to his side.]

Leela: 'Oh, alright. But if I find you're.[Sees Fry's message]..you're...Fry, I-I...(softy) You did this for me? This was the so called trick, that led me into marriage, with you?

Fry: 'Well....yeah....that's my best guess, what made you love me.

Leela: 'Oh Fry!

[She pounces on him knocking him to the ground kissing him.]

Bender: 'Jees, what's got into you Leela? You better not be thinking of---

Cut to: Famous Original Ray's Superior Court. Leela and Fry stand before Judge Whitey.

Whitey: 'Remarriage is final!

Fry: 'So Leela, you'd like to have kids?

Leela: 'Yes I would. Love you.

Fry: 'Love you too.

[Fry and Leela lean close and kiss.]

Bender: (shouting in the background) 'Ahh, jees! Get a room you two!

Thee End (as for the rest, it's left to your imagination.)
