“Hey, guys!” Fry greets everyone as Bender walks into the conference room close behind him. Everyone else was already in their seats. Turanga Leela, Professor Hubert Farnsworth (Fry’s great nephew), Hermes Conrad, Doctor John Zoidberg, and Amy Wong. “Hey, Fry. Hey, Bender.
You’re both ten minutes late,” the purple-haired mutant said. Leela crosses her arms and gazed as disapprovingly as she can with one eye. “Sorry. Last night was a... busy night,” Fry says carefully, unintentionally allowing his eyes to dart to Bender’s before looking down at his hands in his lap.
“According to you, ALL of the nights are busy nights,” she says, apparently not noticing the mistake. “Which usually consists of watching All My Circuits at three am, or staying at a bar until midnight.” She sighs. “Nevermind. We all know you both are lost causes.” Bender huffs in outrage.
“Friends, friends. Don’t fight. We’re supposed to work together for this job,” says the giant red crab, waving his claws at Bender and Leela. “Shut up, Zoidberg,” Leela says. “Anyway, he’s right. This isn’t productive. The Professor has news.” “Yes, yes, thank you, Leela,”
he says in his old voice. “Anyway, good news, everyone! You’ll be making a second delivery to the planet Peoples Alpha, a mysterious planet, ruled by gangs, thugs, and-“ “Yes, yes, we’ve been there before,” Leela says. “Alright. Fry, Bender. You’ll be coming with me. Hermes has bureaucrat stuff to do,
Zoidberg is too stupid, the Professor never comes, and Amy is- What are you doing, Amy?” “I’m going to be busy shopping! How many times to I have to tell you?!” Amy says. “Because I don’t really care. Bender, get your damn feet off the meeting table!”
“Bite my shiny metal ass!” Bender says, taking a puff of his cigar and exhaling it in her face. Coughing, she says, “I don’t know why I thought telling him that would work. Anyway, let’s get going, boys.” “Hey, wait!” Fry interrupts. “What makes you think I
don’t have something to do, also?!” “You may have something to do, but that something is NEVER important,” Leela says. “Now let’s get going.”
