Zooms out. Scene of Fry walking in front of black background. Neon signs showing. suicide booth here, die for money and poisons sold here appear one at a time and shrink.

In front of Planet Express ship, Fry is sat down looking sadly into a cup of coffee. Leela walks in smiling.

LEELA (HAPPILY): Fry, I know how we can get Bender back

FRY (EXPECTANTLY): How how

LEELA: There is a mechanic on the planet Dog Doo 1. He says he can fix any robot.

FRY: What are we waiting for, let's go.

LEELA (LOOKING SAD): There's one thing though. There is no place near there that we can park the ship safely. The journey is perilous and on foot

FRY: We'll be fine

Leela and Fry are edging along a very thin cliff

LEELA: Not much further

Leela's foot breaks through some thin rock and falls of the cliff. She grabs the edge of the cliff. Fry grabs her hand

FRY: Don't worry, I've got you.

Fry's feet start to slip

FRY: I'm slipping. What do I do?

LEELA (CALMLY): Let me go

FRY: No I can't do that.

LEELA: If you hold on, we will both fall. Just let me go. Your life is more important to me. Fry, have a good life. Love again.

Leela lets go

FRY: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Black screen, walking and signs scene shows again.

Fry walks along a pier.

FRY: What have I left to live for. All my friends are dead, and worst of all, the girl I have been chasing since I got to this time, has died. We had finally got married. Finally. Goodbye cruel world.

Zooms out and shows whole pier.

Fry steps of the edge. Holds shot of pier.

Fades to black

A letter is shown. Leela's voice reads it out. it reads:

Dear Fry,

          Don't do anything stupid. I'm writing to you from the hospital in New New New Birmingham on Dog Doo One. Meet me there. I fell of the cliff on to a tree. I broke two ribs and my left arm in two places, But I'm OK. Bender got to the mechanic and is now OK. Zoidburg, Amy and Hermes were in the same hospital, and the professor's head was found inside Bender. It was put in a head jar and he is OK. They say a new body will be ready tomorrow. Just don't do anything stupid. I hope you get this letter.

Love Leela

P.S. - I'm still wearing the wedding ring
