Scene: Planet Express TV area.

Fry, Leela (stroking Nibbler on her lap), Bender and Amy are watching TV.

Fry: So Leela are you doing anything tonight because I was wondering if you'd like to go to Elzar's with me?

Leela: Fry, I'm sorry, but I only really like dating normal guys.

Amy: Newsflash Leela, you're a mutant! No normal guy is going to want to date you.

Fry: But Bender says I'm normal.

Bender: Oh your God Fry, you believed that?

Fry: I thought we were friends. How could you say something like that?

Bender: Well, first I had to think of what to say, then I moved my mouth, set my speaker to make sound and finally I said "you're normal".

Fry: I don't think I can trust you anymore.

Bender: (mimicking Fry) I don't think I can trust you anymore.

Scene: Bender outside Leela's apartment.

Bender: (knocking on door)...

Leela: (rubbing her eye answers the door) Bender what are you doing here?

Bender: Leela you have to go out with Fry, he keeps waking me up with his moronic ideas on how to make you like him. I can't take anymore of this.

Leela: Bender you can't force me to go out with Fry.

Bender: Okay, okay. Remember when you said you like my "in your face" attitude? Well it will be around you all the time if you don't go out with Fry tomorrow.

Leela: What do you mean?

Bender: Here's the deal Leela, if you don't go out with Fry tomorrow I'll bring all my stuff around here and live with you for 3 months.

Leela: Oh no, no way!

Bender: So you'll go out with him?

Leela: No way Bender, definitely not!

Bender: Okay then. (Bender pushing Leela way from the door picks up three boxes and carries them inside the apartment).

Leela: What are you doing Bender?

Bender: What does it look like Einstien? (Bender wheels another two large boxes and leans them up against a wall).

Leela: What the hell are they?

(Bender ignoring Leela carries in a lamp)

Leela: What do we need a lamp for?

Bender: Shut up you coffin stuffer, I'm trying to introduce some style to this life-less room.

Leela: I like my apartment just the way it is.

Bender: Well tough luck OUR apartment needs style (Bender carries in an Easter Island head).

Leela: What the hell is that?

Bender: (standing back admiring his re-decoration of Leela's apartment) Wow! This is amazing, I never thought a skin-tubes apartment could look so classy. Of course it's all my stuff that gives it the "wow factor".

Leela: All this....all this is yours?

Bender: Yeah, all mine. Oh by the way, if the cops from Easter Island come around, you were with me from 4am to 12pm yesterday, alright?

Leela: Whatever, I need some sleep (looking at her wrist), oh no it's 3am!

Bender: You sleep Leela, this will be all completed by the morning.

Leela: It is the morning Bender, you idiot!

Bender: Ok, ok, I'll have it ready by lunch then.

Leela: (walks into her bedroom) Good night Bender.

Bender: See you at lunch meatbag!

Scene: Living room, Bender has re-arranged all the furniture. Leela enters rubbing her eye and finds Bender trying to assemble a Pikea book shelf.

Leela: Bender, what have you done to my apartment? I was perfect the way it was.

Bender: Fixed it!

Leela: Well, I guess it does look nicer with a bit more furniture.

Bender: Too right baby!

Leela: (picking up a box labelled sterno-nicoise ingredients) What's this?

Bender: Sterno-nicoise ingredients, next time read the label on the box jerk wad.

Leela: Humour me Bender, what's sterno-nicoise you idiot?

Bender: I ate it that time at Elzar's when you were blind. It's really nice you should try some.

Leela: Didn't that stuff burn Fry's tongue?

Bender: Yeah I know, but what are you gonna do? (Bender finishes assembling the book shelf). There ...finished!

Bender: I said stop looking through my stuff, it's personal you don't see me going through your underwear draws do you?

Leela: Yes I have seen you doing that..... your point is?

Bender: (in an attempt to distract Leela from his magazines) Yeah, whatever (drags the Easter Island head in front of her TV).

Leela: I don't like the idea of you keeping this kind of filth in my house.

Bender: Have you been to any nightclubs lately?

Leela: No....why?

Bender: (showing his laser display techniques) Is this cool or what?

Leela: Yeah ....what else can you do?

Bender: (extends his arm into the kitchen and brings back a bottle of beer).

Leela: I've seen that trick before.

Bender: Ok, ok... (picks up a box).

Leela: (pointing to the Easter Island head in front of her TV) Did you have to put that thing there Bender?

Bender: Yes.

Leela: (looking at the box in Benders hands) Is that another treasure from Pikea?

Bender: As a matter of fact it is. It's a coffee table.

Leela: Oh Lord, what do we need a coffee table for? I suppose it comes with only three legs.

Bender: What do I need four legs for? Pikea is a good store and this was on special. Oh by the way (pointing to the couch) I got you some meatballs while I was there.

Leela: (looking at the plate of mouldy meatballs perched on her couch). Oh perfect, just what I need, Salmonella!

Bender: (yawning)....Well I'm tired Leela, I've been up all night trying to fix up your apartment to make it liveable. I'm going to bed.

Leela: But you're a robot, you don't need sleep or a bed.

Bender: Oh yes I do. Only a few weeks ago I realised how comfy beds were. Goodnight.

Leela: (following Bender into the bedroom) Hey... you can't sleep in my bed Bender.

Bender: Watch me (climbing into Leela's bed begins to snore).

Leela groans in frustration.

Fry: So Leela? whats it like being Bender's roommate?

Leela: Its great! Yesterday Bender stole a Futon, I dont usually like stolen things, but the futon gives the apartment style and character

Fry: how could a Food-ton sandwich do all that, I've tried it! all it did was give the apartment odour and smell!
