Put Your Head on My Shoulders

"Put Your Head on My Shoulders" is episode seven in the second production season of Futurama. It originally aired in North America on February 13, 2000 as the seventh episode of the second broadcast season. The episode was written by Ken Keeler and directed by Chris Louden. The episode focuses on a romantic relationship between Fry and Amy.

Plot

Amy buys a car at Malfunctioning Eddie's Rocket-car Emporium, and Fry joins her on a road trip to Mercury that leads to a long wait for a tow truck after they run out of gas. Then, she and Fry begin dating after making love on the return trip. Meanwhile, Bender refuses to get the recommended safety features installed on his "ass" and is warned that his "ass" could explode at any time.

With Valentine's Day approaching, Bender decides to start a computer dating service. Fry worries that he and Amy are spending too much time together, and asks Leela to come with them on a picnic to Europa they had planned. When she refuses, Fry asks Zoidberg to come with them. Zoidberg comes with them, but when Fry asks him to drive, he accidentally pulls the wheel off, crashing the car. Fry wakes up to find Zoidberg telling him that his body was badly damaged in the crash. Fry, in shock, discovers his head was grafted onto Amy's shoulder in order to be kept alive. After returning to Earth, Fry breaks up with an unwilling Amy, and she makes Valentine's Day plans with another man.

Fry, Amy, and Amy's date wind up at Elzar's, where all the people who applied to Bender's dating service—including Leela—are with their dates. All these dates are flops, however; Bender merely rounded up a bunch of strangers from the bus station, and they all leave for the bus ride home. Amy hits it off with her date, and is about to leave with him, and Fry's unwilling head. Luckily for Fry, Leela spots him across the room and comes over to save him. To save Fry, she tricks Amy's boyfriend into talking about his job—banking industry regulation—and he soon winds up talking very boringly, distracting him from leaving with Amy. Fry quietly thanks Leela for the assistance.

The next day, Zoidberg reattaches Fry's head to his now-repaired body, and everything returns to normal. Some of the nerves in Fry's neck were apparently rewired so that Fry's left leg hits him every time he touches his neck. As a result, Fry accidentally kicks Bender and his "ass" finally explodes.
