The Fry-Leela relationship is a recurring theme and a story arc in Futurama, the developing romantic relationship between Philip J. Fry and Turanga Leela. Starting early in the pilot with Fry showing a physical attraction to Leela but being turned off by her monstrous eye, the theme is seen in most episodes and is the center of a grande number of episodes both from the original and second run, including "Time Keeps on Slippin'", "The Sting", "The Devil's Hands Are Idle Playthings", "Into the Wild Green Yonder", "Rebirth" and "The Late Philip J. Fry". Though at first a one-sided affection, with Leela showing little care for Fry as anything but a friend, her subconcious feelings are revealed in "The Sting", in which she believes Fry has died, and their kiss by the ending of "Into the Wild Green Yonder" as well as the subsequent "Rebirth" settles their less windy relationship of the sixth season.
