Are there any moments in Futurama when a character does or says something that defines his/her character?

In "Love and Rocket", Fry gives Leela all his remaining oxygen so that she can save herself (and Bender, I guess).  Then he dies.  To me, that's always been a pretty defining moment.

After saving the day, when Leela realizes what Fry has done (that is:  U leave me breathless), she revives him.  I've always thought those moments (Fry giving Leela his oxygen; then Leela realizing what Fry has done) not only defined Fry's selfless love, but was a critical part of the romance between Leela and Fry.

That is true and very sweet.
there's also momments that define Fry and Bender's friend ship like when Fry spends like 3 days straight looking for Bender in Godfelles and when Bender is a were car and he trys to kill Leela and Fry gets all jealous and mad at him. Fry has a lot of momments that define him he's a good friend and doesn't give up on friend ship or his love for Leela.

Leela had several defining moments that showed her deep friendship with Fry - she joined the Army disguised as a man to protect Fry, she willingly stepped in to help the Professor 'flush out' the worms - but she was prepared to commit suicide (sleep forever) in her coma so she could be with Fry forever.

There were only a few eps after that (The Sting), but she seemed much more tolerant fo him after that.  That was the moment that defined Leela.

I'm quite suprised that noone has mentiond Fry's actions in TDHAIPT. Fry writes an opera for Leela. An OPERA, people. If that aint definitive I dont know what is.

The Proffessor in Thne Farnsworth Parabox was pretty definitive I thought with all the attitude the profesoor shows

E.g.'s

Hermes: You broke my collator

Proffesor: I don't care


Proffesor 1: Leela or should I say Evila!


Proffesor A: I hope you weon't find it evil of me to ask you how you got that disfiguring scar

Proffesor 1: Oh this......................... ............................. ..........

Proffessor 1: Getting the brain out was the easy part, the hard part was getting the brain out! Uhahahahahaha

Proffessor A: Ohh you...

etc etc lol  smile

That was impressive, but throwing himself between Leela and the enraged bee says much more.

In my opinion...

We have always known Fry has loved Leela, but it was only in 'The Sting' that we saw that she really cared deeply for him.

You can't "define" a three-dimensional character with a single moment, you can only define a single aspect of it. Therefore each character has several defining moments, when we realise something fundamental about them. My favourite is the guillotine scene from The Sting, when we learn (even if it is in a dream) just how much of an evil bastard Fransworth really could be.

Evil? Hmmm... I'd prefer amoral - he's not wanting to whack her head off to be evil, it's just an efficient way to start examing her brain, get the big clunky body it's attached to out the way! Why, he might even sew it back on later.

If he remembers.

And if he can be bothered...

And, um, if he kept the body intact and didn't harvest its organs first...

Like I say, you're right, it shows how evil Farnsworth can be.

He doesn't die cause she saves him through CPR and he coughs up a candy heart and they spend feb 14th  day together.

Hell, Farnsworth would save her organs and either sell them or save them for himself.

He'd eat her heart for her courage, ohh,yes, her tasty courage...

Yep that's in all the episodes basicly because they all whant to be something else in life rather than work for Planet Express well except Fry.

Well, Fry pretty much defines everyone in The Cyberhouse Rules:

"Dr. Zoidberg: He's a weird monster who smells like he eats garbage and does... And the Professor's a senile, amoral crackpot... Hermes is a Rastafarian accountant... Amy's a klutz from Mars."

And then, of course, Fry's got that brain thing...
