Fry How can you talk about urine when everyone I ever cared about is gone!

The Professor [SNIFF] I thought you cared about me!

Fry I'm sorry, Professor. I'm just so worried about Leela. What can I do to help you?

The Professor You could fetch me a sponge.


Fry I can't forgive myself for letting Leela fall into that rift, Professor. I swear I'll find here -- even if I have to go to the ends of the Earth.
