“Meanwhile” is somewhat complex. Fry intends to propose to Leela on top of the Vampire State Building. He just happens to be equipped with a time-travel widget that allows him to go back in time ten seconds. Fry knows that if Leela doesn’t arrive to his proposal site right at 6:30, she’ll reject him. When Leela is late, Fry throws himself off the building in despair. On the way down, he notices that Leela is walking up. He jumps back in time ten seconds, but was still falling ten seconds earlier. If he wants to stay alive, he has to remain in a constant state of plummeting. A series of contrivances, however, allow the Professor (West) to figure out what’s happening with time, and for Bender to save Fry. Unfortunately, the time travel widget is destroyed in the effort, freezing all time in the universe. Only Fry and Leela remain unaffected. 

Happy to finally have time together, the couple wander the frozen Earth for many years, transforming their lives into an endless, romantic encounter. They walk across the oceans, make romantic swings out of frozen companions, and become elderly. 

When Cohen and “Meanwhile” teleplay writer Ken Keeler were conceiving the episode, they loved it. They loved how optimistic it was, while still being a heady sci-fi story. Cohen, however, didn’t think he’d have to revisit the episode. All of a sudden, Cohen had to ask himself additional questions about temporal mechanics: 

“Everybody seemed pretty happy with it and it was very touching. I loved it. […] But it left many open questions, including some we had to roughly deal with when the show came back, [regarding] the time resets. What did they remember? What did they not remember?” 

If time reset, what then?
