okay, cast your minds back to 'crustacean in love' ... Fry explains his lamentable pulling technique then Leela says something along the lines of 'but they all say that to me - even Sean!' and runs off crying. Then what happens in 'Love and rockets'? Leela blubs to the ship about breaking up with Sean. So I repeat the question - Who the hell is Sean?

Sean is obviously a man of very limited intelligence. I mean, breaking up with Leela and lying to her. He must have smoken some bad granola!

(WARNING: Venting of Dangerous Gases)

So, this guy Sean, the Dean, and whazzizname from "Love and Rocket"--and Al The Shapeshifting Space-Roach. And Zap, the buttshifting space-roach. Fry's risked his life and well-being for her a few times, reunited her with her parents, and on and on... OH, BUT FRY'S NOT GOOD ENOUGH FOR THE CYCLOPS THAT DID IT WITH TWO ROACHES. Who's next, Truck Stop Guy? Ipji? (She tried, and he's married!) H.G.Blob? URL? Wurmstrom?

Fry, dude, you shoulda stuck with Amy.

This is so very true! She sleeps with Zapp Brannigan but she won't even go out with Fry?  mad

Yes, I want Fry and Leela to get together in the series finale, but she's snobby and unfair sometimes.

This thread had been dead for over a year.

And Sean is just another proof of Leela's inablity to maintain a successful relationship.

ok, i could go into great detail and length to try to despute this, but i don't have the time or energy. Go down to the Fry/Leela getting together thread and read pretty much the whole thing from the beginning to end for all the shippers theories on why Leela reacts to him the way she does. There are several good theories. It's not just snobbishness on her part, theres a bunch of psychological issues going on there.

Disclaimers:
1) Obviously Sean is one of Leela's ex-boyfriends.
2) To the limit of my knowledge (at least) there have been only two references to him; one in WMIBACIL & L&R.
3) Evidently Leela was severely hurt by this break-up (perhaps the most of all of them).

I'll try to add perspective to this thread by re-phrasing the question:
What additional information is there about Leela & Sean regarding their break-up?

I'll take that as sarcasm.  wink
It seemed to me, the way Leela stressed (over-stressed, IMO) the "mutual-ness" of the break-up, that Sean dumped her.
Be that as it may, what else do we know about Sean?

i agree with the theory that she was dumped and dumped hard. She was way to insistent about the 'mutualness' of that breakup for it to actually have been mutual. i bet you anything she never saw it coming. And when it did it about killed her.

Yes, she must have really loved Sean. She did cry over him in WMIBACIN just because she considered him not being completely honest about his feelings.

I just had a idea.

Maybe they brought up Sean because he was an unresolved part of Leela's love life. The audience never knew what exactly happened to them after WMIBACIL. So they brought him up in L&R to provide closure and so the audience could be absolutely sure she wasn't involved with someone, which would be great because L&R was a Leela/Fry-heavy ep and with Sean (or anyone else) out of the picture L/F could hook up.

Fry then did a really wonderful thing and risked his life for her but she was still extremely heartbroken from her breakup with Sean so she didn't hook up with Fry because she might get hurt again. Leela also said that she learned from her breakup with Sean that you can't change a man. So maybe, even though Fry is great, she thought she could never change him and make him more mature (she hates his childishness) so she gave up on the idea of getting together with him.   frown

Am I reading too deeply into a guy we haven't even seen and who has only been mentioned twice?

I don't think they mentioned him again to let us know she wasn't still involved with him. i don't think Sean is a recent addition to her list of failed relationships. I always got the impression that she was with/got dumped by him long before she ever met Fry, so if he is playing a part in her reluctence to get with Fry i don't think she is aware of it. As far as i can figure he was her first real love, at least her first real love who she thought loved her back. And although i don't have the experiance to say it, i've heard that you never really stop loving your first. which may be why he was brought up.

Fry is too good for Leela, that's why she hasn't 'gotten' with him yet. I'm sure he just prefers to humour the desperate outcast in her.

Remember, between the two times she mentions Sean, she gets involved with Alkazar, Fry, Adlai, and Fry again (if you count that).  So I don't think she's too broken about Sean during "L&R," unless she got back together and broke up with him again right before that episode, and that would be assuming too much.

So why didn't she hook up with Fry after that episode?  I think it was just supposed to advance their relationship, but not to the point that she would have been unwilling to get involved with someone else later.

No, Sean have never showed up in the comics.

But if the show had lived on, I'm sure we would eventual get to see Sean, and how he get his comeupance (courtesy of Leela, ofcourse. Noone can dish out asswhopping like the fair cyclops  love )

At that point she didn't know Zapp was a pompous bofoon. She'd only heard the rumors and the PR whizpop. Zapp was the Hero of The Octillian System, the Victor Of The Assisted Living Nebula, the Conqueror of The Pacifists, in short Zapp was known as the hero of DOOP and was known as an upstanding citizen.

She was shocked that Zapp refused to help save the animals of Vergon 6, but he could refer to the law of DOOP, and thus was only following order. When Leela saw Zapp crying she fell for his con, that he was really just a lonely and slightly pathetic human being, so desperate for human contact he'd lost all sense of desent behaviour.

She took pity on him, and fell for it. And she'll never let pity guide her actions so easily again. Sad, but probably true.
