Leela: Look, I know it's not much consolation. But, I understand how you feel. Fry: No, you don't. I've got no home, no family. Bender: No friends. Fry: My whole world is gone. You can't possible understand what it feels like to be so alone. Leela: I understand. I'm the only one-eyed alien on this whole planet. My parents abandoned me here as a baby and I don't even know what galaxy they were from. I know how it feels to be alone.
