Bitchy, bitchy, bitchy.  For me bitchiness isn't about being actively cruel, it's also being completely oblivious or callous to the feelings of others.  Amy's catty little lines may seem like more obvious bitchiness, but they are a lot less cruel then some of the things Leela has said and done to Fry. It is just thoughtless cruelty. 

Ah, so there's the difference. I consider bitchiness something you are consciously aware of (like, I know people who will preface a statement with "I don't mean to sound bitchy"--which, of course, ensures that whatever they're saying will come off twice as bitchy--but usually I am aware of the bitchiness of my own bitchy actions whilst I am in the process of bitching), and you see it as a behavior set that's more innate. Fair enough.

And I didn't mind Amy leaving Kif for a while after she found out he was carrying Leela's babies. Amy is young, but she is in a committed and mature relationship, and that's something tremendous in its own right. Most people that age, you'd expect to be wishy-washy--but Amy has always been pretty clear on what she wants. That she was momentarily thrown by the idea of being a mother to a swarm of amphibians secreted by her boyfriend in a swamp is not unthinkable, nor do I find it particularly unlikeable. It's totally understandable, and the fact that Amy eventually decides that she loves Kif too much to abandon him (and that some day she'll make a good mother) shows a lot of growth in her character. I love what "Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch" (and, more generally, Amy's relationship with Kif) does in terms of fleshing out Amy and giving her s'more depth.

Im not sure.  There's a big difference between getting pregnant because both of you forgot to use protection, and getting pregnant because your boyfriend randomly absorbed your co workers DNA.  (Well technically the former counts as the latter but you know what you mean.)   In the first scenario, it takes two to tango, and you should both be responsible for the ensuing baba.    In the last scenario, Amy is basically  having the responsibilities of parenthood thrust upon her, through no fault of her own whatsoever.

Gorky that would be like me sneezing on your boyfriend, him getting pregnant, but YOU are the one who is responsible for taking care of the snot babies of me and your boyfriend.  I wouldnt blame you if you went nuts and flipped out.

Well yeah, exactly. I was saying that I don't care that Amy freaked out about the prospect of being a mother irrespective of the bizarre circumstances surrounding her impending motherhood. Even if they were her children genetically, I could see her being weirded out by her boyfriend being the one to carry 'em and pop 'em out--but I find her actions even more believable and understandable and likable because she's facing a situation that is really flippin' strange and that would make even the stablest, most mature woman step back and think, "Hmmm...is this really worth it?"

Yeah.  I think Amy's was perfectly understandable.  I mean her boyfriend is basically knocked up with someone else's DNA... only minus the sexytime and she's still responsible.   All the pain and none of the pleasure in her situation!
