Fry-Bender relationship - The Infosphere, the Futurama Wiki
The relationship between Philip J. Fry and Turanga Leela is a . She walks away from him without hesitation when Bender distracts her. Fry. Throughout the history of Futurama, the relationship between Philip J. Fry I and Leela met Lars Fillmore in Bender's Big Score and quickly fell in love with him. Wife: Turanga Leela (see the Relationships section for details on Leela as his wife) Since they traveled with him in The Late Philip J. Fry, Bender Bending.
He also when they arrive in the third universe they eventually settle in says that this universe is several feet shorter than their own one. Thus its clearly meant to be a different universe but with the same history, therefore Leela-1 is not Leela Leela-3 is not Leela That was an entirely different character.
Furthermore the Fry that she went through all of those adventures with is not the same Fry as the one she is with now. That Fry is killed by the original when he and the Professor and Bender land on and crush their duplicates. You can see how that might throw a spanner into the works of the Fry and Leela relationship.
Why I Dislike The Late Philip J Fry | burrunjorsramblesandbabbles
Here its exactly the same situation. His Leela is dead, but he is happy with a copy?
However whilst The Late Philip J Fry may spoil later episodes somewhat this way it has a far worse effect on previous episodes. Its sad now whenever you watch previous episodes that are Fry and Leela heavy such as The Sting a fave of mine as you now know that Fry and Leela ultimately had an unhappy ending.
The Leela from that episode ended up alone.
Aside from the fact that that is quite creepy. Not that I liked them much anyway, but still its quite creepy watching them and thinking that Leela and Cubert will end up having sex with one another!
Its very sad to see Leela end up with a horrible guy who mistreats her, cheats on her with her friend and then dumps her, divorces her and takes half of her well earned money. It also at the same time ruins other characters too.
Amy is made into a irredeemable bitch. She stabs her friend in the back and has an affair with her husband. Whilst Amy may have been mean to Leela in the past this I feel was a step too far and again makes you hate Amy when you watch previous episodes from season as you think she is going to end up stabbing Leela in the back, stealing her husband and run off with her money.
Also Zoidberg is given quite an unhappy ending too as he is fired and completely forgotten about by the rest of the crew.
I think this was also a bit too far as even though the others were meant to mistreat him it was always hinted that they cared for him underneath. For all of the main characters from the first 5 seasons to have such sad endings is terrible for me. In " The Route of All Evil ", the cavity was also used as a boil kettle, hopback and fermentation tank to produce home-made beer. Upon inspection of his body, it appears to be empty, though devices like the F-Ray reveal that, despite appearing hollow, Bender's body contains gears and other robotic components.
Being an electronic machine, he can perform quick mathematical calculations, but admits to being a poor calculator. His mechanical nature also makes him far more durable than the rest of the cast, capable of surviving gunfire, explosions, extreme heat, deep water, or hard vacuum.
Even when his body is seemingly destroyed or completely detached from his head, it has no effect on Bender's ability to think and communicate, indicating that his main processing facilities are located in his head. For example, in " The Birdbot of Ice-Catraz ", when Bender reboots, his visual sensors detect a colony of penguins, prompting his boot loader to re-initialize him with penguin-like behavior and language.
He is equipped with a vast capacity of computer data storagein excess ofterabytes - 1 TB for general storage andTB for the storage of pornography, though in 6ACV25 Cubert Farnsworth deletes 12 TB of outdated catchphrases from Bender. Presumably either Bender has a separate "catchphrase drive" or the majority of the catchphrases are also pornographic. Due to Professor Farnsworth 's flawed design, the energy conversion process inside Bender's body produces an inordinate amount of waste gases and heat.Fry and Leela's Ultimate Fate
He can expel these products from his rear end  or, more often, as a flaming belch. He also has a nuclear pile inside his body, as seen in " Godfellas ". However its location and purpose are not clear. Personality[ edit ] Bender often exhibits sociopathic behavior; he is a pathological liar and rarely shows any empathy his most frequent catchphrase to any bothersome person is "Bite my shiny metal ass!
He has a mostly voluntary morality and constantly stealsranging from the petty theft of wallets to crimes such as kidnapping Jay Leno 's head and stealing Fry's blood and kidney. He also once stole Amy's earrings while giving her a hug. It was shown in " Roswell That Ends Well " that even in a disassembled state, his individual limbs carry on attempting to steal anything in proximity; the hand on his dismembered arm steals a wallet out of a scientist's pocket before becoming inactive again.
He is shown throughout the series as having a secret desire to be a folk musician that only manifests itself when a magnet is placed on or near his head. This desire is finally fulfilled in the episode " Bendin' in the Wind ": An encounter with Beck during his hospitalization leads to his becoming lead washboard player and the two teaming up for a musical tour that turns Bender into a folk hero for other broken robots, only for his career to end when he finally recovers.
He is also fascinated with cooking, being the chef of the Planet Express Shipthough he is shown to have no sense of actual taste. In fact, his early dinners were so horrible that even the omnivorous Zoidberg could not eat it. In " The Problem with Popplers ", he creates dinner consisting of nothing but capers and baking sodaand mistakenly expresses his belief that humans eat rocks.
He seems to improve his cooking skills over the series, cooking a lavish cake for Nibbler 's birthday party and beating Elzar for the title of Iron Cook though he uses a potion called "The Essence of Pure Flavor", which consists of water and a generous portion of LSD to make the judges hallucinate that his food tastes good. In Into the Wild Green Yonderhe mistakenly bakes prison guards a cake with nutmeg thinking it was a natural human sleep drugbefore being corrected by Amy that nutmeg is in fact a baking ingredient.
As a robot, he possesses an incredible amount of patience.
In "Roswell That Ends Well", he is shown to wait over a thousand years in sand after his head is lost during a trip back in time toas well as many thousands of years in subterranean caverns under New New York City although on this occasion he was also in the presence of multiple alternate versions of himself that had previously made the same 'trip'. Despite the long wait, it is implied that Bender does not power down, apparently enjoying his own company so much that he does not consider it necessary.
However, in one episode, he shows next to no patience as a one-time joke.
Although the consumption of alcohol is necessitated by Bender's design and should not be generally viewed as a vice for alcohol-fueled robots, he apparently drinks far more than he needs for energy.
His excessive drinking contributes to his characterization as an alcoholic "Hell Is Other Robots" reveals that robots can function equally well on mineral oil instead of alcohol, also contributing to the perception of Bender's alcohol use as a vice. If he is deprived of alcohol, for instance during periods of depressionhe ceases to function properly and shows signs similar to human drunkennessincluding developing a rusty five o'clock shadow.
As noted above, his disembodied head has survived for millennia with, presumably, no source of alcohol, so it may be that, when a mere head, Bender neither requires alcohol nor suffers from its absence. When he is sufficiently frightened or sickened, bricks fall from his backside a reference to the slang "shitting bricks". He has also been shown to be able to use his eyes as cameras.
In addition to drinking, he also has an affinity for cigars, which he ignites with a lighter built into his finger, although in " Decision " he uses a Zippo. Unlike drinking alcohol for fuel, Bender tells Fry that he smokes cigars simply because they "make [him] look cool". Despite being a robot, he has been seen to show emotion on many occasions, going so far as to shed a tear in " Crimes of the Hot ", to Fry's astonishment.
One of the series' running jokes revolves around Bender having emotions, when technically he should be an unfeeling machine.
Bender is seemingly unaware of his emotions, stating in the episode "Anthology of Interest II" "I mean, being a robot's great but we don't have emotions and sometimes that makes me very sad". He has also been known to be nonchalant to the point of appearing both uncaring and incredibly brave, even in life-threatening situations.
Bender is a classic narcissist. He considers himself flawless, a "towering inferno of physical perfection",  and refers to himself in both the first and third person. In " The Farnsworth Parabox " Bender seemingly falls in love with an alternate gold-plated version of himself, stating that he has finally found someone "as great as me". Even his personal email address, bender ilovebender.
Despite these human characteristics, he has no verifiable soulas seen in " Obsoletely Fabulous " when he passes through a "soul detector" without setting off the alarm. However, in " Ghost in the Machines ", Bender becomes a ghost who can't interact with people directly but can possess machinery: He eventually makes a deal with the Robot Devil to get a new body.
Though never addressed in-universe, this seeming contradiction, as noted by the Robot Devil himself, may result from the distinction that Bender's "spirit" exists in a universal wireless network that allows him to travel in the physical world while trapped in a Limbo -like loop. The conclusion that his ghost is an incorporeal program rather than a soul is further supported by the fact that the "spirits" in " The Honking " are actually holograms of deleted computer folders. The only one of his friends who he has openly shown affection for is Fry, his best friend and roommate.
In " Jurassic Bark " he states that he loves Fry "the way a human loves a dog", and in " I Second That Emotion " when Bender gets jealous of Nibbler and flushes him down the toilet, a distraught Leela asks how he would feel if she did the same to Fry, describing Fry as Bender's pet Bender responds with an apathetic "Only one way to find out.
He routinely takes advantage of his friends, including framing them for crimes, robbing them, stealing Fry's blood on more than one occasion, stealing Fry's power of attorneyusing Fry's body to smash open a window, taking Fry's kidney and trying to sell it it eventually gets eaten by Leelaand stealing jewelry from Amy.
He is prone to using Zoidberg in various get-rich-quick schemes, although it is probable he does not consider Dr. Zoidberg a friend, since in " Obsoletely Fabulous " Bender begged the 1X Robot to "save his friends, and Zoidberg" Though it is seen that he helps Zoidberg from time to time, as seen in " That's Lobstertainment!
He even betrays Leela to Zapp Brannigan in Into the Wild Green Yonder when she becomes a wanted criminal, out of jealousy of her steadily growing rap sheetonly to break her out of prison again to ensure his own sheet remains lengthier. Although he regularly frustrates the crew, they have demonstrated a certain affection for him in return. During " How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back ", the entire crew traveled to the Central Bureaucracy to recover his brain after Morgan Proctor burned it onto a floppy disk and sent it away.
Hermes Conrad subsequently risks his bureaucratic license to locate the disc with Bender's brain on it by sorting the entire pile in just under four minutes. In the same episode, when Amy asked why they had to fix him, after being met with a brief period of uncertain silence, Leela responded with "Those arguments aside, we're still going.
