Scene: Leela's Bedroom. Leela is asleep on her bed. She is wearing the same sexy, pink outfit as before. On her face is an open book called "True Stories Of Courageous Animals". She snores loudly. Fry walks in and she wakes up.]

Leela: 'Fry? I missed you. Did you find out what you needed to find out?

Fry: 'I'm about to. [He holds up his holophonor.] Leela, let me play for you one for time.

Leela: 'You don't have to do that. I'm still seduced from before.

Fry: 'Please, it's important to me.

[He plays. Rather than the soothing, romantic music that played earlier in the day, Fry now plays creepy, unromantic music. The swirls come from the end of the holophonor and the head of Frankenstein's monster appears. He groans and screams then disappears.]

Leela: 'What's that supposed to mean?

Fry: 'I don't know. I got nervous and I started thinking about neck bolts. [He reaches around to hug Leela but he knocks the vase of Leela's flowers off the table with his holophonor. The vase breaks.] Crap! Damn me, for cutting my hand-eye co-ordination lobe.

Leela: 'What are you talking about?

Fry: 'Um Leela, please don't be mad at me, but I got rid of the worms.

Leela: 'What? Why would you do that?

Fry: 'Leela ... I don't know. I guess I was lying to myself and you about something I'm really not.

Leela: 'Any other reasons?

Fry: 'Leela, please don't be mad at me for saying this ... promise?

Leela: 'I promise.

Fry: 'If I had ... well sex with you when I had the worms I could of infected you with them, plus I felt I was taking advantage of you with the power they gave me.

Leela: 'Fry? No, you weren't. I lov-- um. How did you get rid of them?

Fry: 'First Leela, I wanted to know if you love me for who I am, for I could change myself over time for you and take lessons with the holophonor. And Leela, I want you to be happy. As for how I got rid of them I sent a droid of myself into my brain threatening to cut my medulla oblongata with one of their swords, control centre of the heart and lungs things if they wouldn't leave.

Leela: 'So, that's what you meant by "cutting hand-eye co-ordination lobe". You, went into your own body, gave yourself brain damage and threatened to kill yourself if they wouldn't leave?

Fry: (teary eyed) 'Yeah, stupid isn't it? [He steps off the bed and begins to walk out the door.]

Leela: (very soft) 'Where are you going?

Fty: (crying) 'What?

Leela: 'Oh Fry, sweetie. Don't go, I believe you.

Fry: (confused/crying) 'Hm?

Leela: 'I believe you Fry. You may have not told me in great detail, but I can kinda imagine what you went through for yourself, and for me, and if this means anything I seen no lies in your eyes.

Fry: (timidly) 'You believe me?

Leela: 'Yes Fry, I believe you, and maybe one day when you're ready you can tell me the whole story. [Fry's body shakes.] Come here Philip, don't be afraid. I'm not gonna hurt you. [Fry sits down on the bed, Leela pushes up to him to sit beside him.] Lie with me. [Leela opens the blankets lying herself down inside them.] Come on, I've seen you naked before. [Fry takes off his shoes, pants, jacket, t-shirt; leaving only his underpants on; throwing the rest of his clothes on the floor.] Come on, I won't bite. [Fry slips under the blankets beside her.] Let me just get the lights. [She leans over to the side of the bed and turns off the lamp beside her on a counter, leaving the room in a blue twilight like darkness where everything can still be seen quite well.] Fry?

Fry: 'Yeah Leela?

Leela: 'Do you love me?

Fry: 'Yes, Leela. I love you without the worms as well and before.

[Leela smiles.]

Leela: 'Good, so you'll try and grow up a small bit won't you?

Fry: 'I will, I'll do my best.

Leela: 'Good. And if you can, try get some lessons with your Holophonor.

Fry: 'I'll try.

Leela: 'Oh, and Fry?

Fry: 'Yeah.

Leela: 'I love you, too.

[She leans her head towards him, wrapping her arms him around bringing him into a soft passionate kiss.]
