Far behind the velvet curtains, the lights were growing dim. Only a few small, hanging bulbs illuminated the various figures as they scurried to find their places on the stage. A few nerve-wrecked musicians remained backstage, facing a gritty mirror that had been worn and cracked by decades of dust (and, perhaps, the notes of Opera singers). A stage manager rushed by angrily, barking that they had five minutes left until the curtain rose.
One musician remained at the mirror, despite the warnings. He scowled as he tried to forcefully flatten his rowdy hair, only to have it flair up again. "Damn you..." he growled at the uncooperative strands. They failed to give in, though, so he finally gave up.
He felt the sudden urge to grasp his Holophonor, and he did so without any further prompting. He sighed as his hands twirled the instrument nervously, a movement he had no control over.

"You should really get a haircut, Fry." Stated Leela rather bluntly as she scrunched up her nose in distaste and tugged at his hair.
"Yeah, Fry... If you want I once slept with a hairdresser so I can get you in for cheaper!" Amy chirped excitedly as she flipped open her phone.
Fry looked between them both, sighed and then shrugged, "I don't know..." he started with uncertainty. "Hey, Bender..." He said slowly as he span in his chair to face his dozing, robotic best friend. "What do you think? Do you think I should get a hair cut?" He asked, pulling at his long locks with a questionable look.
Bender glared at his hair, stated a sharp "I don't care." Then stood from his chair and stormed out the room.
Fry stared after him with a rather puppy-like express

FUTURAMA: BUMP IN THE NIGHT
CAPTION: [in alienese] NERDLINGERS UNITE!
An eerie light was set upon the street of New New York; Halloween drew near. Priests filled the streets shouting something about repentance, or maybe it was re-pent ants. Sales in garlic and wooden stakes increased as well as sabotage to ladders and inside umbrellas. But people still flocked to get pumpkins, real, plastic and illegally produced. Excitement built in the average family, the prospect of sweet gifts and a chance to pull a prank without worry of any dangerous holiday mascots such as Robot Santa Claus or the Zombie Easter Bunny.
Though no one could have been as exited as Professor Farnsworth; he had been growing pumpkins with a growth enhancement and was about to make a breakthrough in pumpkin technology. What disappointed him though, was the fact that nobody cared.
Im sick of pumpkins! Fry whined to the professor. Cant you use something like peaches or hamsters or suga

Dangers Of Deliveries Part 1The Planet Express crew sat casually in the lounge watching the news, awaiting their next delivery. Leela was always ready for their missions right away, with her keys kept in her pocket and her wrist device ready to take directional orders. Fry and Bender on the other hand were more than happy to wait if they had to; after all, a new episode of All My Circuits was going to be on. Professor Farnsworth slowly shuffled his way into the room. Upon hearing the doors slide open, Leela sat up attentively, while Bender and Fry sank deeper into the sofa, as if already being bored with whatever they would have to do...Dangers Of Deliveries Part 14 years ago in General Fiction More Like This

Nobody really paid attention to Fry's claims that a group of strange girls from another dimension had kidnapped him and taken him to the basement of what looked like the home of a small family. His workmates simply assumed he had gotten drunk and wandered off in the middle of the night.

You're kind and compassionate,
You always do everything right,
Maybe you don't know this,
But I do.
I love how you always,
Reject me when I tell you 'I love you',
Because that gives me another chance tomorrow,
To tell you 'I love you' again.
I love your long and violet hair,
And the way you smile,
I love your bossiness,
And the way you lead people,
Your boots are great on you,
Or did I already say that yesterday?
Why do I love you?
Because I just do,
Until you say 'I do too',
I'm never going to give up.
Say I'm clingy and desperate,
But that's just my style.
I love how your words always make my day,
I love the way you look at me,
Even out of hatred,
I don't want you to turn around,
Please just put that eye on only me,
Forever and ever.
I'll always rush to protect you,
Because I know deep down,
You need someone,
And I want to be that person.
Do you find me a burden?
Do you want me to stop?
I would but I can't,
I already fell deep and far,
And I don't

I Really Miss You

How much funny you were
And the happiness you brought us

Every time I see you on TV
I remember the smiles
And how you made me happy
