Actually, I just noticed that Scruffy says, "Lemme know how that turns out" at the baby shower in "Kif Gets Knocked Up A Notch."  "Lemme" is "let me," so I guess that blows that theory.  On the other hand, "me" is not the same thing as "I," so maybe that part's still true.  To the best of my knowledge, he's never once said "I."

I hope I'm not breaking any taboos by posting thrice in a row but has it ever occured to anyone else that Scruffy is exactly what Fry would have become had he never been brought to the future?  In more than one sense, we can say that he is "Fry without a future."  Feedback?

I think that Scruffy is smarter than Fry. Much smarter.

Almost everyone's smarter than Fry.  roll eyes Besides, Fry is cooler and doesn't speak in the third person. Scruffy's just sort of... there.

Have a look at Futurama Comics #5 and you'll know that Scruffy is very much smarter than fry, and teaches fry quite a lot.

In my experience, all else being equal, refering to yourself in the third person usually makes you cooler, not the other way around.   

But all else is not equal.  Fry is the protagonist and no one is going to steal his thunder.  Moreover, as I pointed out in another thread, I'm not at all convinced that Fry is stupid.

But some people might think that you have a serious problem when you refer to yourself in third person.

Gocad does however agree with you, CZ.

I believe he finally got a name in Parasites Lost.

Fry: "Aren't you gonna put out the fire?"
Scruffy: "No."
Fry: "Why?"
Scruffy: "Schedulin' conflict."

LOL

-cs


His name is mentioned first in AOI I:

Leela: "Who are you?"
Scruffy: "Scruffy, the janitor."
Leela: "I've never seen you before."
Scruffy: "I've never seen you before neither."

This is also his first speaking apperance.

Scruffy played the Manwitch in Leela's dream about the Wizard of Oz in AoI.  Maybe that's why in later episodes there are jokes about a Manwich (sloppy Joe), so that people who didn't get the earlier joke the first time around would get it retroactively.  confused   Again, more pop culture references.  The 1960s TV show "Bewitched" convinced America that a male witch is called a "warlock" (historical hogwash) and so now no one can think of a witch without thinking of a female.  At any rate, at least we learn that Scruffy and Leela share the same shoe size!     hmpf

Was #10 the curling (swurling, whatever they called it) issue? The curling issue sucked. It was basically a lame parody of an obscure 'sport'. Scruffy was right out of character.

I think someone did a nine-year bump once.
He/she was hung, drawn and quartered... but in reverse order.

As it should be.  There should be some sort of time limit on these threads.  You know, something like 2 years open & no posts means the thread is closed & deleted.

I love the scene (I can't remember where it's from) where Fry actually remembers Scruffy's name and Scruffy is so bewildered that he just walks out of the door.  Hilarious.
