day before came rushing back. He needed to know where she was. Where
his wife was.]

a heart monitor. Tubes were in his arm, and one in his nose, letting
air come in. His eyes adjusted as the door opened.]

doctor didn’t respond. After receiving a chart from the nurse,
he saw down next to Fry. He spoke slowly and carefully, his voice
full of sympathy.]
Mr. Fry, when you stepped out in front of the space bee, the stinger
went right through you, and your wife received the poison. She’s
still alive, but- she’s in a coma.
She’s unresponsive right now, but we’re running test to
see what’s going to happen.
tried to sit up, but the pain was too much. As Fry was wincing, the
doctor put a hand on his arm.]
Don’t move too much.
eyes were filling up with tears. Leela’s in a coma…no,
she couldn’t be. She’s fine, she’s waiting right
outside. No, she’s not. She’s practically at deaths
Now, we understand that you have two children, is that right?
Yes, Travis and Jamie.
Well, you’re going to have to stay here for a few days. Is
their anyone we can call to take care of them? You’re friends
have them at the building where you work right now.
Tell Amy to take them to their grandparents.
Okay, I’ll do that. Now I’m going to check on your wife,
and I’ll be back in a little while. If you need something, just
tell one of the nurses.
leaned his head back and looked at his wedding ring. This wasn’t
fair, they had been married for 9 years. Travis was 8, and Jamie was
6, they both needed a mother. He couldn’t take care of them by
himself. And he would never look for someone else. He knew that if
Leela didn’t wake up in 12 weeks, he would have to make a
few weeks earlier, Fry was sitting on the couch with Leela in their
home. They had just put the kids to bed, and were sitting in front of
the fireplace, where Leela was curled up beside him. She had been
quiet all night, and Fry sensed something was bothering her.]
Hey, are you okay?
A lot of things.
Do you wanna talk about it?
sat up and took a deep breath.]
If I tell you, you have to be serious about this.
Okay, what is it?
Well, I was thinking; what if one of us were in a vegetated state?
What about it?
Well, the thing is, I was wondering what should we do if something
like that were to happen. Rather it was one of us, or both of us.
What would we do?
I don’t quite get what you’re saying.
I guess I just want you to know, if something like that were to
happen; I would want you to let me go after a certain amount of time.
Especially if their was no hope.
So you’re saying if you were in a coma, you’d want me to
pull the plug?
Yes. And I’m not just saying this. I’ve thought about
this for a long time. Especially since we’re both having Hermes
deal with our wills tomorrow, it’s something I’ve been
thinking about lately.
So, God forbid, if something were to happen, you’d do what I’d
want you to?
Fry, honey, be serious about this. It’s probably never going to
happen, but if it does, will you promise me you’ll do that?
Because you love me?
Because I love you more than anything.
I love you too.
did he ever agree to that? That was the thought rolling around in
Fry’s head right now. Why the hell would he agree to kill his
own wife? It was a incredibly stupid mistake. Like she signed in her
living will: 12 weeks was her cut off point. If she wasn’t
awake, that was it. Beside the hospital had a rule: 12 weeks with no
change, the patient would be moved to a nursing home or let go.]
was slowly walking down the hall of the hospital a few days later. He
was getting ready to go home soon, but he had to see Leela. He called
Amy, telling her he’d call her when he was ready to be picked
up. Opening the door to one of the rooms, he held on tight to keep
his balance. Inside, there she was, sleeping. She looked so peaceful,
but so different. The way she was laying in bed, it was all wrong.
Her arms at her sides, her back and legs straight. No, she shouldn’t
be in that position. She should be on her right side, her right arm
at an angle, with the back of her hand resting against the pillow,
and her left arm across the mattress. Sitting down, Fry took her hand
in his, and to his surprise, it was still warm and soft. He feared it
she was going to be cold and clammy, but this didn’t make the
situation any better. Maybe if he talked to her, she’d wake up.
It was worth a shot.]
Hey honey. It’s me.
Just as he expected.]
I’m okay, the stinger didn’t kill me, but-you know what
though she wasn’t responding, Fry felt the words come easier.]

school, I promise I’ll come see you tomorrow.

to Leela, broke Fry’s heart.]

I don’t know if you can hear me, but you need to wake up.

waited a moment before releasing her hand and leaving.]
walked in to his house a few minutes later. Amy had dropped him off,
and she was going to get the kids. It was 5:30 and Amy offered to
take them out for dinner, just so Fry could think about what to say
to them. He knew what was coming: “Daddy, where’ Mommy?”
“When’s she coming home?” But once he explained
what happened he would see teary eyes and confused faces. “Is
she gonna wake up?”. And once he explained that, he would hold
the two of them as they all cried, fearing that they would never see
night, Fry had put the kids in bed. They needed to get some rest.
After they came home, Fry explained that Mommy was hurt, and was
going to be asleep for awhile. He also told them, she should be
waking up sometime soon though. Yes, it was a huge mistake, but they
were so young. What would he say? “Mommy might never wake up
and then I have to tell the doctors to let her die“? No, he
couldn’t do that. If she woke up-]
(thinking) When she wakes up.
had been reminding himself all day to stay positive. When she
wakes up…when she wakes up…when she wakes up…Please
let her wake up. It was finally too much, Fry broke down on the
couch, sobbing. Leela: The love of his life, his wife, his
everything- in a coma. No, she cant be, she’s fine.]
(thinking) I’m dreaming. That’s it. I’ll wake up in
bed, Leela at my side.
kept his eyes closed for a long time. Finally, he opened them and
looked around. Crying, he laid down on the couch and squeezed the
throw pillow at his side. His stomach growled, since he hadn’t
eaten anything since he left the hospital and had no desire to have
anything. Amy told him to have at least a snack, but he didn’t
listen. All he could think about was Leela.]
(soft) Why? Why did this have to happen?
looked at their family portrait and wiped his eyes. He looked at her
face, so bright, so happy. So alive. This house, that she had
decorated, so many memories. Some bad, some good. Mostly good.
Correct that- mostly great.]
remembered sitting right here, massaging her feet when she was
pregnant with Travis and then doing the same when she was pregnant
with Jamie or sometimes he would just do it for no reason at all. He
remembered sitting on the porch and her running out holding a
pregnancy test. They had been married for a year, and on their
anniversary, Fry was sitting on the porch with a diamond necklace for
her, along with a card where he had wrote a long note saying how much
he loved her, and that every day he felt like he was falling in love
with her all over again. She had come running out, screaming his
name. He thought something was wrong, but when he saw the smile on
her face and that she had the test in her hand, his fears were gone.]
day, he would wake up, and see her staring at him. She was always an
early riser, but not once would she shower and dress before he woke
up. Of course if they were running late, she would wake him, but
every morning, he would see her: her pink pajamas, her hair a mess,
her ring shining in the morning sun that peaked through the windows.
He’d hear her say “Good morning” and then kiss him.
Fry would say “Good morning” as well and then they’d
go through their morning routine.]
as Fry sat their that night, he knew that he may never hear her say
those words again. He lifted up his shirt and looked at the bandage.]
(thinking) This is my fault. She’s in a coma because of me. I
should of stopped her from bringing that baby queen. Why didn’t
I? I should of told her to just leave it so we could get home to the
kids. We could all go out for dinner, and then the two of us could
sit out on the porch and talk. But no! I had to be so ignorant and
say “Okay, what ever you think it best.” But why her? Why
couldn’t it have been me?
woke up on the couch and looked at the clock. It was 6:30 and in 15
minutes he would have to go get the kids up. Making himself a small
pot of coffee, and making some pancakes for the kids, he set out two
plates, two glasses of orange juice and two vitamins. Leela made sure
they took their vitamins every day and now that was Fry’s job.
Yes, it would be hard, and he needed Leela. He didn’t know how
he could get through the day without her.]
later, Fry was sitting in a chair next to Leela’s bed in the
hospital. He had been their all day, and watched the nurses stretch
her arms and legs so they wouldn’t get stiff. If she were to
wake up and her limbs hadn’t been stretched, she probably
wouldn’t be able to walk. Fry did his best to talk to her,
although it was strange at first, since she wasn’t responding
he began to get use to it. Hopefully, he wouldn’t have to get
too use to it.]
had talked to the doctors earlier, and received the news that Leela
wasn’t brain-dead. So, Fry still had a thin ray of hope. He had
called Amy and told her. Of course she was happy, and told Fry to
keep positive. He had been most of the day, until he went home.
Seeing Travis and Jamie come home from school, and not having Leela
with him seemed so…wrong. Usually they’d come and get
the kids at the bus stop and take them to Munda and Morris’ for
the rest of the day. But not today. Hermes told Fry to take as much
time off as he needed, but luckily he still got paid. He had a family
to care for. That’s what he reminded himself, it’s what
Leela would of wanted him to do. Take care of Jamie and Travis. But
seeing them get off the bus, it took everything inside of him to not
break down and cry. Travis: what could be said about him? He had
purple hair just like his mother, but wore it spiked up. His nose,
just like his fathers, and his two eyes. At 8 years old, he was
strong and adventitious. He had his mothers strong will, but his
father’s ability to make the best of every situation. Jamie,
she was Fry’s special girl. Her red hair, pulled back in a pony
tail, her one eye and cute little nose. She loved space, like her
father and begged him to take her to work every Saturday. Most of the
time, he did, and they would take their kids to work. Just like her
mother though, always telling Fry when he did something wrong. Even
though he could have his wife and daughter yelling at him, he found
it adorable and always apologized. Later at night, Leela would put
Jamie to bed, and they would talk about Fry’s stupidity.
Afterwards, Fry would ask what they were talking about, and she would
just smile and shaker her head.]
ran up and Fry scooped her off of the ground.]
Hi sweetie, how was school?
Good. Did you go see Mommy?
hesitated for a second and finally forced a smile.]
Yeah I did. She’s still asleep, but I talked to her just so she
wouldn’t be lonely.
came up and Fry patted his head.]
night when Fry explained what happened, Travis took it hard. At 8
years old, he was extremely smart and knew exactly what Fry meant.
Out of the corner of his eye, Fry saw all the other parents staring
at him. No doubt they heard about what happened and they all watched
as Fry took the kids inside.]
Now, I want you guys to work on your homework and I’ll get you
a snack okay?
nodded and sat at the dining room table with their books. Just as he
did everyday, Fry got a plate with cookies and two glasses of milk.
Of course, they would have a snack and then go to their grandparents,
but not today. Putting them down on the table, the phone rang.]
(thinking) Oh, please let it be the hospital saying Leela’s
picked the phone off of the receiver and held it up to his ear.]
Oh, hi Amy.
Listen, I had a feeling that you might not be in the mood to cook, so
is it okay if I bring something by for you guys?
Yeah, thanks a lot Amy.
Okay, I’ll come by after work.
Alright, bye Amy.
hung up the phone and sat down with the kids.]
was laying in bed by himself that night. Once again, he hadn’t
eaten anything all day, and still had no desire to. He had a few
glasses of water, and a piece of bread, but felt full. A photo album
at his side, with an empty box of tissues. He had been looking
through their wedding album, and then wished he didn’t. All he
could think about was not being able so see Leela again.]
next morning at 8:30, Fry walked into the hospital with a bouquet of
flowers in his hands. They’re dark violet and red colors made
them look mournful. His expression didn’t help either. After
walking into Leela’s room, he watched the nurses go through
their usual routine with Leela, and once again, left to pick the kids
up. Another night with out having much to eat, and having Amy come
over with dinner for the kids, he cried himself to sleep again.]
days turned into weeks, and Fry had come up with a new routine:
Getting up, making breakfast, taking the kids to the bus stop,
visiting Leela, coming home and doing the same thing over again. He
had barely eaten anything and lost 15 pounds in the last month.
Everyone was worried about him, he needed to start getting back into
this old routine. Yes, his wife was in a coma, and it was
understandable, but he needed to be a good father. The father Leela
always wanted him to be. The kids were starring to misbehave. Not at
school, but at home. They wouldn’t clean their rooms, or put
their dishes in the sink. The worst part was that Fry didn’t
seem to care. He needed Leela to help him. He couldn’t handle
being a single dad.]
was right around the corner, and when he saw the kids write the words
“For Mommy to get better” at the top of their lists, it
just broke his heart into pieces. He didn’t know what to do,
it’s not like a new doll or video game could replace their
mother. Xmas was usually a happy time at the Fry house. Leela would
always go buy the gifts, then late at night she and Fry would wrap
them and once they were done, Fry would hide them in the attic. She
would bake cookies and pick out a outfit for their Xmas card. Then on
Xmas eve, they would all go down to Munda and Morris’ for the
night. But this year, the kids went down there, while Fry spent the
night at the hospital praying for an Xmas miracle. One he didn’t
get. The worst part though, was that he didn’t know how bad it
hurt, not only the kids, but Munda and Morris as well.]
was sitting in Leela’s room holding her hand. Tracing small
circles with his thumb on the back of it, he hoped it would wake her
up. The silence was killing him, so he decided to talk to her.]
How are you feeling honey?
could imagine what she would say.]
I guess. I wish I wasn’t here though.
himself, he laughed.]
Well, that’s understandable.
are the kids?
They’re okay. They really miss you, but I’ve been making
sure they do their work and they haven’t been getting in
trouble at school.
looked at the wedding ring that was on her finger. They had asked Fry
if he wanted to take it home, and he said absolutely not. It was her
ring and she was going to wear it.]
I love you.
looked at her pale face. She was thin and frail, and she didn’t
even look like herself.]
I love you too.
at the clock, he saw that it was 2:30.]
I should get going, the kids are going to be home soon.
let go of her hand and walked out the door. But not before looking
back at her, watching her from behind tears.]
(soft) I’m sorry Leela.
weeks since the accident and Leela showed no change. Fry was getting
more depressed and lost more weight. He had yet to return to work,
but took the kids to Munda and Morris every day so he could spend
more time with Leela. He couldn’t stand not being with her. His
eyes, that were once so full of happiness and life were now dead
inside. Dark circles were under his eyes, and his face was as white
as snow. He hadn’t slept or eaten much the past month and a
half. As he sat on his couch late at night, he stared blankly at the
wall until he fell asleep. Through out the day, he barely said
anything to anyone else besides the kids and Leela. The nurses had
gotten to know him, but Fry was not interested with talking to them.
It was noon, and he was in the cafeteria at the hospital. In front of
him was a tray with a turkey sandwich and a cup of slurm. Across the
room, he saw a man sitting there waiting for someone. Soon, what Fry
assumed to be his parents and in-laws came in holding flowers and
balloons, and he pushed the tray away from him. They all seemed so
happy, and he remembered what that felt like. That happiness he and
Leela had seemed so far away, since nothing good had happened in the
last few weeks. After he went home, he sat on the couch and sat there
in the silence. The kids were still with their grandparents and Fry
was sitting in the dark when there was a knock at the door. Answering
it, Amy was standing on the other side with a bag of fast food.]
I thought you might be hungry so I got you some dinner.
Oh, I’m not really hungry but thanks.
Fry, what have you eaten today?
I had a sandwich for lunch.
saw him pull up his jeans. He looked sick: thin, pale, dark circles
under his eyes, his hair a mess.]
Listen Fry-and I’m only saying this because I care about you-
you need to stop living like this. Look at yourself you a mess.
sighed and leaned against the door.]
Please come back to work. For your self. Trust me it’ll help
he didn’t answer she shoved the bag at him.]
I’m not leaving until the food in this bag is in your stomach.
once again, was sitting with Leela when the nurse came in. The kids
had left for school an hour ago, so Fry still had the whole day
Hey Leela, time for your stretches.
Mind if I help?
No that‘s fine, come here.
told Fry what to do and he started bending her toes one by one.
Starting with her pinky toe, he bent it back and forth. He remembered
late nights, sitting up in bed rubbing her feet when she was sick.
Her skin would always get so dry, so Fry always would rub her feet,
hands, and arms with lotion.]
Does that feel good honey?
I was starting to get a little stiff. By the way, thank you for the
brought flowers with him every day. The man who ran the store got use
to Fry’s daily trip and had a different bouquet planned every
day for him. Today he brought in a bouquet of red and white roses.
Her favorite. He brought her the same flowers the day her proposed.
He remember it so clearly: they weren’t living together, and
Fry threw on his suit, picked up the ring from the shop and bought a
bouquet of roses. Then, he ran to her apartment and when she opened
the door, he was down on one knee. She gasped and stated crying tears
of joy. The next day, neither of them were at work.]
I’m glad you like them.

They’re doing good. It’s hard for them and half the time

had moved to her arms and was flexing her fingers.]
what we talked about.
didn’t answer. He couldn’t.]
weeks, Leela was still in the hospital, Fry had yet to go back to
work and he spent even more time there. Today was the day, he would
have to make the decision. Have Leela put in the nursing home or do
what she wanted him to and let her go? Yes, she signed that’s
what she wanted, but ultimately it was Fry’s decision. He was
meeting with the doctors in half an hour and now was sitting with
Leela. Praying that in the next 30 minutes she would wake up.]
Come on honey. Please wake up. The kids need you, I need you.
I cant do this by myself. And I cant ever meet someone like you. I
There was a knock at the door and Amy walked in.]
Hey Fry, hey Leela.
sat down across to Fry and looked at him.]
You look like hell Fry.
Thanks for the compliment.
I’m just saying that because I care about you.
looked away for a second.]
How was your date with Kif last night?
Good, I think he might propose soon.
looked at Leela, and then back at Fry.]
Have you decided what you’re gonna do?
he didn’t respond, Amy sighed.]
Lets change the subject. When are you coming back to work?
looked out the window at the dark overcast sky. He thought it was
perfect for a day like today: depressing and dark. When he responded,
he sort of mumbled.]
Soon, I guess.
We need you there.
So…next week you’ll come back?
sighed and Amy shook her head.]
Listen, here’s what’s going to happen: starting next week
you’re going to work until 2:00 every day so you can be home
when Travis and Jamie get home from school. You’re going to
cook dinner for your children and you are also going to cook for
yourself and eat it.
You’ve thought about this.
Someone has to. And you really need to come back.
What if I’m not ready?
Oh well. If you’re not going to do it for yourself, do it for
your kids. You love them, right?
Of course I do.
Then you’ll start acting like their parent, and that means
going to work.
You have to show them that no matter what happens you have to go on.
No, listen to me. It’s not going to be easy, it’s going
to be really hard. But you have to work at it and get back to normal.
That’s life. Sorry.
You don’t understand.
felt the anger boiling in his blood.]
Yes I do.
But Leela is-
What? Smart, fun, a great mother, a great wife, strong, kind?
Everything you’ve ever wanted?
brought his finger to the bridge of his nose, trying to prevent the
I know, I love her too. She’s the sister I’ve never had.
But more than that she’s also my friend. A real friend.
She was lucky to have you for a husband, you were great to her,
better than anyone else could ever be. I know more than anyone how
much you love her. You were caring, you respected her, you were her
best friend. And you know that she wants you to be the father she’d
always hoped you’d be.
I don’t know what I’m going to do.
It’s been 12 weeks.
stopped and looked at Leela.]
I’m suppose to meet with them in half an hour.
I’ll let you think about this some more. I’m gonna go see
Well, Travis and Jamie are spending the night at their friends house.
Mind if I wait around at your place then? I want to hear about what

You’re like a brother to me Fry. And I love you like one.
I know, and I love you like a sister.
You know I’m here for you right?
Yeah I know.
I’ll just wait for you.
See you later Leela.
was halfway out the door when she heard Fry call after her.]
How far should a person go in the name of love?
turned around and saw Fry, his eyes begging.]
You’ve asked me that before.
I know, but tell me what I should do.
Do what you think is best.
But what if what I think is best, isn’t what she would of
I don’t know. This is your choice Fry.
far should a person go in the name of love? Fry didn’t know
and felt like he was being punished. But for what? Looking at the
clock he saw that it was time and he still had no clue what he was
going to do. Sighing, he took Leela’s hand.]
Please honey. Wake up, or at least tell me what to do.
already did. Sweetheart, I love you, and if you love me, you’ll
do what you have to.
he didn’t want to. He didn’t want to make this choice. He
lost no matter what. If he decided to keep her, he would be denying
her wish. If he pulled the plug, he could never live with himself
knowing that he killed his wife. He told her that he would let her
go, because he never thought that it would happen. It was just a
impulse. He had one last chance. He leaned in closer and felt his
heart beating faster than it ever had. Soon their lips met, and he
knew that soon she would open her eye and kiss him back. He thought
he felt her move, but realized it was all in his mind. Pulling back,
all he could do, was cry. His voice was a horse whisper.]
Good bye Leela. I‘ll always love you. Please know that.
walked in the door of his house later that night. For hours, he drove
around, not even realizing it. When he pulled in the driveway, he saw
Amy’s car, and the light in the living room, he wiped his eyes
and walked inside.]
Come here, sit down. Can I get you anything?
Uh- some water?
I’ll be right back.
came back in a few seconds with a glass.]
Are you okay?
I-I don’t know.
sipped the water and sighed.]
Do you wanna talk about it?
took another drink and didn’t answer for a long time. Finally,
when Amy took his arm, Fry spoke, his voice horse.]
I couldn’t do it. I thought I could, but I couldn’t. I
know it’s what she wanted, but…I love her too much to
let her go.
I know, I could tell that’s what you were going to do.
Do you think I did the right thing?
Yes, I do. Don’t feel guilty, you did what you needed to do.
She was meant to live.
I know but…
swallowed hard and took a shaky breath.]
I know. I’m scared too.
was sitting at the conference table at Planet Express weeks later.
When he decided not to pull the plug, Amy had gone with him to find a
nursing home for Leela and asked all the questions. The nursing homes
were not what Fry had expected. He thought there would be tons of old
people, moaning and having IV’s hooked to them. But no, they
were clean, the staff was kind, Amy helped him fill out everything
and asked the important questions and they were even able to get
Leela her own room with a view. But now, as Fry was getting ready to
leave he heard the phone ring.]
I’m looking for Phillip Fry?
Mr. Fry, I think it would be best if you get down to the nursing home
Amy watched Fry hang up the phone and saw him crying.]
Fry what’s wrong?
I need you to take me to the nursing home, I don’t think I
Okay, lets go!
was silent the whole ride there.]
was sitting on the porch on the two person rocker watching the kids
play on the swing he’d set up. It was a sunny Saturday
afternoon, and Fry’s shirt was soaked with sweat. For the past
half hour, Fry was pushing the two of them on the swing as they
laughed and told him to push them higher. Finally, it was too much.
He was tired from running around with them plus he didn’t sleep
much the night before and needed to rest.]
Daddy’s tired, just let me rest for a few minutes. Travis, push
your sister on the swing.
watched the two of them laughed as Nibbler ran around the swing.
Hearing a rustling in the kitchen, he opened the door and saw her
standing at the counter. Turning around, she smiled and saw the sweat
on his brow. Giving him a kiss, she saw Travis playing with Nibbler
as Jamie was on the swing.]
Are they wearing you out?
How are you feeling?
Better. I think my sinuses are clearing up, I’m so tired
But I bet you’ll sleep better tonight.
had been home for over three months now, but was still doing physical
therapy. That day the nursing home called him, and after Amy dropped
him off he had a terrible thought “What if I misunderstood?
What if she’s not awake?” But when he walked in her
room, there she was awake, sitting up, thin and frail, but she was
awake. After that day, Fry spent as much time at the hospital (where
she was moved back) as he could. He still made time for work and the
kids, and took them one day to visit Leela. They were a little scared
at first, but soon realized that their Mom was back. Then a week
later, Fry was finally able to take her home. For the first month and
a half she was home, Fry’s fear was that if she went to sleep,
she’d slip back into a coma. Leela was also scared of it, but
