    • Bender: Don't worry Leela, one day we'll be able to look back on this and laugh. (Walks towards the door and laughs)

    • Fry: Leela, I just want you to know that even though you're mean, you're the best captain ever. Bender: Yeah, you're one dynamite lady. Can we have a week off? Leela: No. Fry: Please? Bender: Come on, Captain. Leela: Oh, alright. Farnsworth: No time off. Fry: Aw, man. Leela: Let's mutiny!

    • Glab: Zapp Brannigan, I hereby restore your rank and parking privileges.

    • Zapp: And so, when Captain Leela panicked, perhaps distracted by female troubles, my quick thinking allowed me to do whatever I did to save the day. Glab: Captain Leela, is this rambling story of magic and heroism true? Leela: Well, actually- Farnsworth: That a girl! If they don't take him back we can keep him as captain. Leela: Your Honour, it's all true: My female incompetence, Zapp's cat-like reflexes, the stuff that made no sense, all of it.

    • Leela: Hurry! I don't wanna die at the age of 25. Bender: Honey, unless we hit a time warp, I wouldn't worry about it.
