Born on April 19, 1975, in Old New York. Michelle was a newborn, years later she begin a relationship with Philip I, years later, she broke up with Philip I on December 31, 1999 from a taxi cab she was sharing with her lover, Charles Constantine. She told Philip I she left his stuff on the sidewalk as the taxi pulled away. She had sexual intercourse with Constantine later that night, before being interrupted by a time-traveling Bender Bending Rodríguez, who was being forced to hunt down and kill Philip I by Nudar, who broke into Michelle's house and said to Michelle and her boyfriend 'Say your prayers Fry!'. Some time later, after a failed marriage, she froze herself to start a new life in the future. From 2012, she was supposed to unfreeze in 254 years at 2266. but Philip I's time paradox duplicate, Lars Fillmore, hitched a ride on her cryo tube, setting the time for 990 years. In 3002, she was surprised to find that it was Philip I thawing her and the two rekindled their romance. Michelle could not adjust to her new surroundings and re-froze both herself and Philip I, for another thousand years. Upon awakening, they found themselves in a desolate wasteland. Trying to make a life for themselves, they joined a society of feral adolescents. After the teens were picked up in an armored SUV, Philip I grew tired of Michelle's constant nagging and left. Philip I soon discovered he had only been frozen for two days and that he was in Los Angeles, California. Presumably learning this as well, Michelle hooked up with the recently thawed Pauly Shore.
Michelle was briefly seen at Philip I's funeral, along with his other flames.
In the episode "Lrrreconcilable Ndndifferences", she is seen at Comic-Con with much longer hair.
What Michelle is like in the futureEdit
In 3002, after she was defrosted from a cyrogenics tube, she hated the future because of Fry's friends, ever since then, she has been living as a future person but she has problems with the future herself, all this because of Lars. Michelle suffers from loads of problems but the only people she know is Pauly Shore, Fry and the rest of the Planet Express crew except Scruffy respectively.
Fry was frozen in 1999, Michelle was frozen in 2012 at 37 years old, she was unfrozen in 3002.
Fry is 45 years old in the future. Michelle is 54 years old (chronologically 44) in the future.
Did Lars ruin Michelle's life?Edit
In 2012, when the Time duplicate of Fry survived Bender's Assassination Attempt on him and he realised that he was in fact Lars, he went to the Applied Cryogenics lab and entered Michelle's cryogenics pod, changing the date from 256 years (which would have made her unfreezing being in 2266) to 990 years. Climbing in above her, he knocked a bit off her hair in the process due to her being brittle from the freezing. By.changing the date of her unfreezing, she had to face the changes in the world so drastic that she struggled to cope with this.
Though it is noted that aliens and robots did exist in 2200's due to the Countess De La Roca dating from 2256 to her death in the year 3000 on the Titanic . And the Earthican fish "Anchovie" became extinct in the 2200s as well due the Decapodian 's overfishing the tasty salty fish to extinction. With all of these things, every the element of Michelle's life being hard would have been in the year she was due to awaken, so her life would not have been ruined by Lars intervention. In fact without Fry there to give emotional assistance to her before she fell back into her old ways, she likely would have suffered more without him.
