Just wondering which thing Fry says or does that really epitomises how totally stupid he really is - just one scene that stands out to you.

For me it's in "a Tale of Two Santas" when hermes is nailing wood to the television and Fry says "just as well, i'm getting tired of this wood show" - *sigh* what an idiot!

This may be the hardest "most" thread in the history of this board.  Fry says or does something idiotic every single episode, even ones where he's relegated to a background character.  That said, this dialogue stands out in my mind:

 
Quote
From "Godfellas"
Gypsy: Ooooohhh...I am yor friend: Bonder!
Fry: Bonder, is it really you?
Gypsy: Yes.  I'm fine.  Give the Gypsy ten dollars.
Fry: Wait a minute...Bender's name isn't Bonder, it's Bender!

Also, his Bushlike broken sentences:
"No I'm...doesn't"
"Don't you worry about Planet Express, let me worry about blank."
"I'll be what I wanna do."

And so many, many more.

Or how about how in "A Pharoah to Remember" he nails his hand to the sign, yet he can see PERFECTLY CLEARLY WHAT HE IS DOING!

Or his line in "Godfellas":  "You mean we can never catch up to him?  Not even if we rub the engine with cheetah blood?"

What about that time that Fry started a new thread when one with the same topic already existed?

What if we wanted a new thread because the old one hasn't been touched in a year and a half, and is a poll with the plurality of votes going to the "other" option, and no options whatsoever from Prod. Season 4?

From "Jurassic Bark" a possible example of who's the more foolish, etc.

Crowd: What do we want?
Fry: Fry's dog!
Crowd: When do we want it?
Fry: Fry's dog!
Crowd: Yaaaaaaay!

I like the line "Woo hoo!  I did it!  Wait a minute, that's not me." 

In War is the H-Word.

It takes a lot to forget the difference between yourself and other people.

And David A, I'd have to say you got burned.  I like this Nerd-o-rama kid.  Keep it up.

Anyway, I think some of Fry's best (and dumber) moments were when he tried to bite off his arms in Fry & the Slurm Factory, when he missed the  "Launch" button in A Big Piece of Garbage, and when he found out he controlled Amy's left arm in Put Your Head on My Shoulder.

I'm glad no one's mentioned when Fry drank the Emperor of Trisol, because to me that wasn't that stupid. I mean, if I had been crawling/walking through a desert all day under 2 suns and found a cold bottle of liquid, I think I'd drink it too.

I'm pretty sure David knows the mods personally (see some of his other posts,) and he has all those fancy flashing stars under his name.  I didn't want him pissed.

I also found something to add to my "he forgets what he's saying in the middle of the sentence" response, above.

"People used to say I was dumb, but I proved them."

Now that is irony.  Well, it is if you read it a certain way.

Meh. If/when David is pissed, he can flaunt and flame, but he can't actually touch you. And those stars don't mean squat, except that he's made a lot of posts.

HE HAS NO POWER HERE!  evil laugh

Anyway: "Yay, I did it! Wait, that's not me." Ranks up there pretty highly. And the button. And the knawing of arms.

I'm glad he did that. Everything about Fry in "Parasites Lost" was just wrong. Leela would have liked him for all the wrong reasons, and he would have been out of character for the rest of the series.

*Glare*  I don't like you...wait, do you mean by ditching the worms or the idiotic things he said afterwards.
Ditching worms = noble.
Discussing Amy and backrubs = dumb, but in character.
So yeah, he was stupid, but not for wanting to be himself.

Which reminds me, Mars U really plays up his idiocy

Don't know if this was said yet, but I thought that when he was talking through the megaphone in "The Day The Earth Stood Stupid" was pretty dumb. Then he got sqwacked at and fell over.

The wierd thing is that's impossible, unless he had a third hand to hold the nail up.

It's Fry.  He can achieve superhuman feats of idiocy.  Maybe he has reverse-telekinesis and can hold the nail in place with the power of his idiocy...as long as he does something stupid with it.  Or it was an animation goof for the sake of a joke.

Fry and Leela sat on the couch, with Nibbler curled up in Leela's lap.
"Maybe they're right," said Leela. "Maybe Nibbler is dumb."
"Don't listen to them, Leela," Fry consoled her, putting his arm around her shoulder. "I used to be dumb. It wasn't so bad."
At this point, the professor and Hermes walked in and told the couple about the woes of Tweenis 12. Nibbler scurried outside and Leela followed. Then they flew off to Planet Eternium in an adorable space ship.
Back on Earth, cars crashed, Zoidberg stared at his claws, Hermes drowned himself in the shower, and Fry fell over, twitching.
"Look! A sword!" said one worm.
"Ooh! Let's cut this thing," said another.
"It look squishy. Let's make squish kabob!" said a third.
The worms proceded to hack Fry's organs to bits.
With Fry's pre-Roswell That Ends Well death, the delicate balance of time travel paradox was upset, and the universe imploded.
"Oops," said Nibbler, just before everything faded to white.
The end.

Just saying.

Even if he had kept the worms, he'd still have the same brain-wave. Him already being really stupid has nothing to do with him being immune to the Brain Spawn.

I think Tongue Luck was saying that the worms would get dumb and kebab Fry's organs with those fancy swords, not that Fry would suddenly become vulnerable.

From "The Cryonic Woman":

Leela: Fortunately, I still have our old career chips.

Fry: Our what?

Leela: Career chips. You remember, they assign you the job you're best at.

[Fry remains silently confused.]

Leela: I tried to give you one and you ran away.

[Fry's still silent.]

Leela: It's how we met.

Fry: And then what happened?

Thanks for playing translator, Nerd-o-rama. It made sense in my head.

For the list of Bush-like broken sentences ('cept it isn't a broken sentence, so maybe not):
"And Fry, you've got that brain thing."
"I already did!"

The "wood show" moment. I rolled my eyes and snorted, I recall, when I saw this episode. So lame, so stupid. I love it when he messed up his sentances, though. Either he can't get whats in his mind to his mouth, or he's hearing things. But either way, moments like "No I'm...doesn't." and "I already did!" are priceless to me.

Talking about Amy and the massage oil in a baggie to Leela ranks really high up there, too.

Fry's dumbest moment:
EVERY EPISODE!

Ah, what can I say, Fry is awesome.

"And Fry, you've got that brain thing."
"I already did!"
That was great.

The times when Fry focuses on and repeats the entirely wrong word(s) from a sentence said by another character are dumb, but of course hysterical.

For me it's the episode where the staffs of the spaceship travel back in time.  Fry accidentally killed his grandfather and sleeps with his grandmother. Then he became his grandfather, that's why he still exists.  Does that even make sense?  roll eyes   laff

There's too many to name.

But his reaction upon finding out about being his own grandfather was priceless. Go Fry!

And maybe this isn't as dumb as it is insanely reckless, but him drinking a hundred consecutive cups of coffee was too damn good.

Has no one mentioned in "Bendless Love" at the beginning when they are watching the security tapes to see who bent everything in the Planet Express office? Upon seeing that it was indeed Bender who bent everything, Fry says "Hey look, it's that guy you are."

Not the dumbest, but a dumb moment that I'm pretty sure no one has mentioned.

Or the Route of All Evil when he complains about Bender's favorite beer? You know... the one with the metal shavings?

Not only is Fry stupid, he seems to have idiotic superhuman resistance to ridiculous amounts of physical damage. It's no wonder he can drink a hundred consecutive cups of coffee, survive three heart attacks in the span of four years, AND be impaled by a lead pipe, among other feats...

But another good moment's gotta be this one:

Fry: "Hmm, some of the tunnels had metal bars ... So I need someone who is good at bending... Leela? How about you?"

When Bender, of course, is sitting RIGHT THERE.

For me, it's the way that Fry tries to pick up the "1" sign after nailing his hand to the board; not just a total mix-up of priorities, but also a waste of time, as the number of days without an accident is back to zero  smile

Another one of my favorites is in the Why of Fry;

Fry : Because I'm so smart?
