Since we all know Amy is in college and is an intern at the Planet Express, why does she have to be a party girl?  Also, why does she have to sleep around as well? (I heard on the DVD version of the first Xmas episode Amy mentioned she slept with someone's lawyer or something.) As much as I like the character, she would be a better character if she didn't have to be so wild sometimes.

There are people like that in real life. Futurama characterizes on stereotypes in society, and shows the similarities people in the future have, to the people living now. It shows that as much as technology evolves, socially there will always be different types of people living and interacting, and that's something that doesn't always change with time or technology. Amy is an example of this.

She did seem to calm down after she started dating Kif...

You mean Bill Gates isn't a monkey? Fascinating.
::makes notes::

Amy's party-girl quality is probably also done to enhance the difference between her and Leela. And keep in mind she is only 20-21 when the show starts and a member of her own fraternity and if American college-movies is anything to go by those type of people love a good toga-party. Also see comic #11.

Some people lamented the fact Amy seemed to become less of a party-girl after hooking up with Kif. Well, at least wanker did.

But she didn't want to give that part of herself up completely, since she didn't wanna move in with Kif.

Also, she was terrified by the prospect of motherhood.

Was moving in with Kif ever an option?  He's in the military, and seems to live on board the Nimbus.

Yeah, he wanted her to live on the Nimbus with him.  "There's plenty of room; you can have the floor, and I'll live on the ceiling."

how amy or any charcter is perceived is down to your own views on people in general. the original poster seems to like girls who aren't party girls. asking if a character would be better if they didn't have certain traits seems irrelevent to me, as that person then ceases to be the person they were. for me amy is great as a party girl and a neccessary part of the show, to offset leela's obsession with conformity.
