Fry who pines for Bender and listens to really sappy songs while thinking about him. He sits in a corner of the Planet Express building with headphones on, T.V. Carpio’s version of “I Want to Hold Your Hand” is playing softly on repeat. He’s just longfully watching Bender “working” (ie. kick stuff around, mess with Zoidberg) wondering what it’d be like if Bender would let him hold his hand, and if he’d understand.
Oh please say to me You’ll let me be your man And please say to me You’ll let me hold your hand I want to hold your hand
And when I touch you I feel happy inside It’s such a feelin’ that my love I can’t hide I can’t hide
Antagonist: I was marked and now I am an outcast. I have to capture you and bring you back so that my father will be proud of me
Protagonist: I’m prophesied to save the world but I’m just a kid and I don’t really know how and I’m not sure I want to but I have the power and my two closest friends to help me
So what am I shipping? Avatar the Last Air Bender or Harry Potter??
I had a dream last night where I was playing football with my kid.
No, no, with him. I'm on this field, and they, they pass me the baby. I know I've gotta do something 'cause the Hamburg defense is comin' right at me.
Hamburg's got a terrible team.
Right, but, it is just me and the baby, so I'm thinkin' they can take us. And so I uh, I just leave it in the area.
What are you crazy? That's a baby!
He should catch the ball?
Anyway, suddenly I'm in the area, and I realize that I'm the one who's supposed to catch him, right? Because in fact he was the ball. Only I know there is no way I'm gonna get there in time, so I am running, and running, and that, that is when I woke up. See, I am so not ready to be a father.
Hey, you're gonna be fine. You're one of the most caring, most responsible men in Germany. You're gonna make a great dad.
Yeah, Marco. You and the baby just need better defense tactics.
