Amy often says random words, such as "Spl'uh", "Gleesh", "Globviously" and "G'uh". Do these words mean anything, or can they just be used at random times? Is it only Amy who uses them (does she make them up) or are they widely used in the future?

I don't think there's another thread like this, but I'm sorry if there is.

I'm pretty sure they mean what the modern-day English words they were created from mean. I think it's just future slang, and we only hear it from Amy because she's the "hip and young" stereotype.

That's what I thought, I just wanted to know what other people's opinions were.  big grin

Spleesh! I have not heard any others talking quite like Amy and there have been a few eps. with other hip, young characters. Certainly the idea came from her belonging to the hip and young crowd, but I like to think of that vocabulary as being uniquely hers. It is one of the things that make her cute.

Spluh, Gleesh, Spleesh, Globviously, and Guh are all words in the slang she uses.  The writers made her talk like that to make her sound hip and trendy.

They also did it to make a qucik joke ... or two.

Actually that was the pre-dominant reason...

Scratch that; it was the only reason!

I tend to think that Amy is the show's only representative a certain young adult demographic--sort of a futuristic "valley girl." So, yes, there are probably others (of a certain age/type) who talk like that, we just haven't had occasion to see them.

Then again, we've never really seen any of Amy friends, either. But I imagine that they'd probably talk like her, if we were to see them.

Maybe it's a Martian accent.

I agree with Sine Wave's view, as Amy is the hip cool member of the P.E. and uses these words probably due to hearing them in the clubs she goes to etc...
