In the episode "Jurassic Bark" Fry said Seymour waits for him at work.  Then Fry said "Just like those mushrooms waiting for me in my shower".  Could it be he meant 'shrooms'?

Also, in "The Farnsworth Parabox" when everyone saw their paralel-selves Fry said, "This is just like that movie about that drug trip when I was on that drug trip!"   This made me wonder if before he got frozen Fry used to either expirement or maybe he was a little bit of a drug addict.

I viewed it as him having a REALLY unclean shower. The bong in the Beck episode is more a hint of drug use from Fry than the shower thing, to me anyway.

Like any college attender, whether drop-out or graduate, Fry likely experimented.  I doubt he was actually an addict, solely because he was too poor and lazy and had too much self-respect to be able to pay for a drug habit.

It could be that he said something different.

"Attaboy Seymour! Right here, waiting for me as always! Just like that huge mushroom in my shower!"

The implication is meant to be that Fry's shower is mouldy, because he never cleans it, and probably rarely uses it. Remember HHRHGB, when Morgan Procter was banging him for his slovenliness? Take a look at Fry's "bed" in that episode, and listen to what he says about it. It's a real "character insight".

And he wonders why Leela isn't interested in him...   confused

Well, we do know that Fry is a possible (barely) functional alcoholic.  It may be possible that he has experimented with drugs in the 20th century, but with his lust/love for Leela and knowing the physical fitness freak that she is, he would stay away from drugs since they would turn her off.   no no

He still drinks (heavily) because both Bender and Leela are drinking buddies.

The only thing he's addicted to is Slurm. Leela shows some signs of an alcohol problem some times, like having beer for breakfast in Spanish Fry.

She had one beer during a camoing trip, that's not being an alcoholic.  Fry probably experimented with some drugs in the past, but the bathroom mushrooms just meant he was a filthy slob and a poor house keeper

I've always thought Leela was just a social drinker.  So the thing about the shower was supposed to mean his shower was moldy.  I do believe that he probably expiremented with drugs.

She pulled more than one bottle out of the stream. Substituting booze for meals is one symptom, but then it's about the only time we see her having breakfast. Her Dad likes to drink taquila during the day and alcoholism can be genetic. And there's the booze making at the orphanarium when she was a minor. Actually we know very little about Leela other than her time at work. It's little things that started to show up in the last seasons.

Yeah, the shower 'shrooms just mean Fry and Bender don't clean up much which is typical of guys. Also there's a difference between dabbling with something like pot and being addicted to something like heroin, crack, or painkillers.

On top of all that, we know that Leela has a boatload of emotional problems.  Her workout routine of keeping herself in tip-top physical shape and her Kung Fu fetish, along with her wild mood swings (often expressed violently) could suggest a alcohol problem.

But remember, she keeps her sadness pent up inside until it festers into a mental illness.

Slurm addict yes, durg addict no. Yeah Fry has an addicting personality so its possible he could have been a drug addict, but I doubt it.  Fry doesn't have the focus to be a drug addict, he is too lazy. I don't see Fry doing whatever it takes for his next fix everyday. Fry lacks that kind of discipline. But if you consider Slurm a drug then yes he is a drug addict.

Yah i dont think so its just he knows what everything is and like because in Hell is other robots he goves a good hint that he think drugs are uncool...and in jurrasic bark he is talking about that the mushroom in his shower is waiting for him like he is very unsanitary and a giant slob so thats probably the case. I get this conclusion from when how hermes requesitioned his groove back that morgan opens his locker and find the mess and the milk in his cap and he comments about time makes fools of us all thats probably what happned to the mushroom in the shower so no i dont think he was or is a drug addict.

Fry's addicted to caffeine, sugar, Slurm, video games, and sex.  He drinks beer frequently but usually not in mass quantities; the only time we see him drunk on it is when he thinks he's a robot and has to power his fuel cells. 

I'd be surprised if he's addicted to anything else.  I'm sure he tried marajuana in college or something, but anything "harder" would be out of his price range.  I imagine things like the Listerine incident spring more from his impulsive whims (like trying to fit his head in a crater), and I'd bet money that the "drug trip I saw in that movie when I was on that drug trip" resulted from some long comedy of errors (or someone convinced him that it was traditional way to view 2001: a Space Odyssey or something).

Yeah there is much more evidence that he's not an adict(Hell is Other Robots, Time Keeps On Slipping,Etc) some of those things are also probably just there for the joke.

Uhm, one of the main themes in Futurama is Fry getting a second chance; a fresh start; a clean slate as a result of being frozen for a thousand years.

Now whether he's still a loser is open to debate...

I think he meant he got drunk, because listerine is slightly alcoholic. 0.22% ethanol if im not mistaken

The only character that seems to use anything harder than Slurm on the show is Hermes Conrad.

It was "They can touch anything but themselves.. <touches them together> oh, wait."
but definately one of the funniest drug-related bits in the show. That and..

dammit, you stole what i had to say, which was...:
doesn't everyone eventually (cept me) experiment with that kind of stuff? especially punching bag. just because they experimented doesn't mean they're a drug addict.

If you click on the button that says "quote" beneath the quotee's post, it should add the entire post to the text box where you type your reply.

Save that, you could always put [ quote ] at the beginning of and [ / quote] at the end of the chunk of text, without the spaces.
