It's obvious, Scruffy could of "did it" with her and then, but he decided not for both of their sakes. Plus most Humans cry.

Scruffy's a cosmic-war-hardened man of morals. And it hurts Scruffy inside.

He cries because he's a real man who's not ashamed to weep for the true love that he cannot have.

Exactly. Poor Scruffy. I hope there are many more items of janitorial equipment he can fall for in later days. Perhaps a torque wrench, or a vacuum cleaner (hoover).

Or maybe a janitorial fem-bot, but he'd have to be careful... Bender might seduce her...

I would love to see Scruffy give a rousing speech on morality to someone like Bender.

I can see it now.

Scene: The PE Break Room. Scruffy is lying on the couch reading the latest issue of Flying Melons from Sleaze Four, a high end erotica, when Bender walks in.

Bender: Hey, chumpettes, guess who's back six hundred thousand dollars richer?
Fry: Some lawyer somewhere?
Leela: Where's that millionaire's daughter you were sponsoring for the Big Brother program?
Bender: Who cares? Probably home safe in her crying father's arms.

Bender whistles and starts walking out of the room. As he turns around a piece of paper flutters out his his compartment

Fry: Hm? Fry picks up the paper

"To-do list
Buy newspapers
Visit petting zoo
Kidnap sister
Empty Fry's wallet
Ask for many thousands"

Fry: Hey, what is this, some kind of song lyric?
Leela: Yeah, even Fry wrote better lyrics that one time. Wait, these aren't lyrics! Bender, how could you?
Scruffy: stands and looks at Bender

---

From that point, Scruffy would launch into a dramatic and passionate display of his deep understanding of humanity and the depths of his soul. I have neither the ability to write the beautiful words he would muster nor the want to tarnish his name should I put down anything but the best for him.

It was a surprise to see Scruffy cry about a bucket.  We always knew there was something mysterious about Scruffy.  Maybe he was in love with the bucket's voice.

This brought a tear to my eye... Scruffy's words must remain in our minds until the writers can preform their sacred duty, and give scruffy the words that will best suit him.  cry

EDIT;

Wait! i know what Scuffy would say!!

Scruffy: I am disappointed.  Maybe love doesn't mean anything to you, but to me it does mean something.  It means being there for those who need it., it means never giving up.  it means that we can be anyone in another city...  he pauses then runs out to find the washbucket and the mind switching machine... as a back story, he clones a body then puts the washbucket in it, and then they move to a new city and live happily for the rest of their lives big grin 

i know, my words still don't do it justice... i will now go and punish my fingers for writing words that are not worthy of scruffy's name...  cry

You guys keep going on about how moral and good Scruffy is, yet you don't seem to think that he'd have a problem with killing someone just because he created them as a clone for his own benefit?

According to Amendment 324 passed into law June of 2871, any artificial body raised for any purposes other than experimentation is punishable.

Scruffy, with his years of built wit and mechanical expertise, would have no issue passing off the mind switching as a noteworthy experiment and then later publish the very sexy and very successful results.

Farnsworth got away with it because he declared himself dead as a tax dodge. Sure, when met with it he claims he simply fell asleep in a ditch, but we all know he's more snide than that.

...

Calling it an experiment doesn't change the fact that he is essentialy forcing the newly developed mind of the Amy clone into the bucket.
An act that a moraly driven Scruffy would have issue with.

But not necessarily, the bucket body is the tool, it would be the bucket mind that he wanted... so a newly developed mind would easily adapt to a new body and be happy in it.  And Scruffy would get his love big grin

But it doesn't sit well from an ethical stand-point.

It's like me wanting a baby's arm so that I can frame a baby's arm holding an apple on my wall for a joke, so I cut a baby's arm off going by the logic, it's too young to know any better and it'll grow up without an arm so it will have adapted to life with just 1 arm and it'll be used to it.

I just don't think Scruffy would be up for that.

I'm assuming that the body would only have the basic instincts programmed into it.  It would know how to take care of life functions and that's it.  I'm equating it to how a robot can have a new body built for it, or how a head in a jar can take over a robot body.  Basically, he would be 'building' a body for the wash-bucket, swapping a blank slate for her.  i won't pretend that it's a bit of a touchy issue, because we are dealing with human cloning, but I think that it could work out...

I think Scruffy is the most conservative character on the show. And the most moral. Oddly enough he does have a pretty healthy porn habit. tongue

If living in the real world has taught us anything, it is that Porn is the cornerstone of any sane person's day.

Scruffy's all for equality. That's why he fought in the Equality for All (Except Neutrals) War of 2775. Of course, the war was commissioned,started, and ended by 25-star general "Commodore 64" Zapp Brannigan. (TOO MUCH NERDY! I need a break. But I can't! New Futurama tomorrow.)

He always dreamed of a hot girl with brains of a washbucket. BUt he couldn't go through with it.

As stated above his morals wouldn't let him.

Sorry, I had an intelligence lapse. I meant 2975. Also, cyber-turnip, I'm not a big fan of fan-fics. Too much Slash.
