We all know Fry and Bender are best friends.  Do any of you think they're anything like those old comedy duos from the past such as Abbott and Costello, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby, or maybe Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis?  (Let's not forget Bender can sing with a magnet on his head, so let's not leave that last one out!)   smile

If they are anything like anyone, it must be Ricky and Lucy from I love lucy (Think his name is ricky) The way Bender tends to treat Fry, and the way Fry subcomes...  smile

I dunno.  In most of the classic comedy duos one is the funny one and one is the straight man.  With Fry and Bender, there really isn't a straight man.

True.

I really don't think Bender and Fry are n-e-thing like old comedy duos.

They are one of a kind.

Fry and Bender's straight "man" is more or less the girls. Mostly Leela (since she spend more time with them)) but Amy get a few shots as well.

Leela's main function seems to be to provide a straight man for the other characters to play off of.

Well, that, and to bail the others out of whatever mess they've gotten themselves into.
