What's wrong with my President of the Plane hat? frown

The brim is too small. tongue

It's at Kif's funeral and Leela is trying to comfort Amy.   Save your hug for the widow whose crying her eyes out.  :P

SPOILER ALERT!


True but it the idea does seem extremely evil/funny.

Xanfor: You poor thing!  You look so folorn.
Leela: Well I'm here because my friend's husband suffered a brutal and horrifying death.
Xanfor: That must be so hard for you!
Leela: Yeah I had to get my hat dry cleaned, my arm is getting tired from patting Amy on the back, and I'm running out of nice things to say about Kif... I didn't even like him that much.
Xanfor:  You're a saint!  Hey, is there any way we can get this noisy asian broad to shut the hell up?  I swear some people always have to make it about them...
Leela: Tell me about it.  I don't even get why she's making such a big deal about it, it's not like they were dating or anything...

Xanfor: Listen, I'll tell you a secret. At some point in the future, Amy and Kif are going to break up over something trivial, and then she and Bender are going be engaged to be married. But don't worry, she'll get back together with Kif almost immediately after Bender realizes that monogamy is monogamous.

Leela: Oh Lord. I was almost taking you seriously.

Eeeeeeew. tongue

I'm not sure how I feel on this. I relate to both of them in a lot of ways, but I think I might go with Amy. I love smart, kick-ass Amy: the Amy who drove the ship, the Amy who wins at mini-golf, the Amy who got her PhD with an invention that sounded pretty freaking awesome.

Amy is pretty awesome.  The recent episodes and movies really seem to be developing her personality and the writers seem to have realized she's a very underrated character with a lot of potential.   I think she's easily one of the most complex, multi faceted characters on the show now, thanks to some good solid character development.


 She also seems that despite the riches and privilge, she seems to have had an unhappy childhood (from Leo treating her with disappoitment that shes not a boy, to the parents insulting her, in ways that sometimes border on emotional abuse.)  Plus we always assumed she was stupid or at least an average student, hence her parents buying her into Mars University, but since we know she's actually a genius, this seems to imply that they neglect her and don't realize her abilities, or a complete lack of faith that she is able to get in on her own brainpower.  The few times we see her interact with her parents, they are usually rather unkind to her.   Also, she was extremely overweight as a child (not to mention her parents seem to have teased her a lot about it) and she continues to have a barely restrained eating disorder to this day, I'm guessing her compulsive eating started due to being depressed as a child (I know quite a few people who are overweight, simply because food is the only thing that makes them happy, a trait that started in childhood).  To this day, Amy has an extremely unhealthy relationship with food.

I knew all those things on a certain level, but that didn't stop me from feeling really sad for Amy when you said them. Aww.

Don't feel too bad for her, because out of all the characters with unhappy childhoods, she's the one who has managed to turn her life around and be happy in adulthood (except for Fry, who was too naive to realize how awful his parents treated him as a child).  She seems to be fine, except she seems overly eager to please, and of course, her extremely unhealthy relationship with food.  http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/FormerlyFat  This is a pretty good description about how her childhood obesity probably still affects her.  

I once read about pop psychology in the internet, so I know pretty much everything about how the world works.   POP PSYCHOLOGY!  Why get a degree when you can read about it on wikipedia?

As for all the times Amy has said she knows Leela is smarter then her... I am guessing that's another indicator that she probably has very low self esteem, or at least lower then she lets on.  As for the whole smartness thing, I guess Amy is much smarter then Leela academically, but has absolutely no common sense whatsoever (whilst its the opposite with Leela, except Leela is far from stupid bookwise.  She's just not doctorate level)

I don't know about that.  Amy had enough sense to recognize what a great guy Fry is, and when Fry screwed that up, she had enough sense to move on and have a lasting relationship with Kif, who seems to be a good match for her.  Meanwhile, Leela was spending most of her time running away from a relationship with Fry.

If Leela has so much more common sense than Amy, then how come Amy is happy and Leela isn't?  Mama always said stupid is as stupid does.

Leela is pretty emotionally vunerable, and often rejects people because she is scared of being hurt.
Amy just has a lot more confidence socially, while Leela is very insecure, due to her treatment at the orphinarium, and people being put off by her one eye.    I suppose you could say Amy has much better social skills then Leela, who is sometimes rather socially inept.  While Amy had a pretty crummy childhood, Leela's was even worse.

We had a Fall Madness in 2004, where the Futurama characters battled it out. Leela reached the Final (where she lost against Fry), Amy was beaten before even the Semi Final.

Over the original run, I was all for Leela. Now, I'm far more for Amy. Somehow, she got more interesting..

Plus Amy never put Kif through any of the bullshit Leela has put Fry through.  Sure Amy had a much better childhood then Leela, but it's pretty obvious it couldn't have been that great with her horrible parents.   It doesn't help that now they seem to see her as a uterus with a daughter attached, and they see the aforesaid uterus as an incubator for grandchildren.

And let us not forget Spirit, the pony Amy's parents wouldn't let her have because she already had too many ponies. She's pretty heroic to make it through so much adversity.

You could say Amy had a lot of character development lately... I however say that she was simply dumbed down. I'm not happy about her becoming the slutty one, which is unfortunately what is happening (her flirting with every bad boy, dumping Kiff for Bender, "well, I was going to have sex with my boyfriend on a burning flag"). What used to make her likable to me was how patient and well she interacted with Kiff (especially considering that she could score with more "manlike" men). Amy without Kiff is a flawed character to me; I especially hate her dumb one-liners ("they scoobie-dood us!", "what the shmell happened!", "let's all go tanning!"). No way she's a better character than Leela, even if the later has some faults herself.

I thought Amy was always kinda the slutty one. I mean, that aspect of her character has been expanded as the show developed, but it's not like she started out life as a prude. I dunno, I think without Kif she's never been particularly deep as a character. She was the young hot thing for a long time. Then she met Kif, and because a little more round, and later episodes like Darn Katz also deepened her character, but she's never been as complex or intriguing as Leela.

Amy used to be the slutty one, but now she's pretty much devoted to Kif (she's certainly more devoted to him then Leela is to Fry, not that that's saying much).   

Pretty much every joke used to be about how she was a bimbo who had a new bedbuddy every week, but she stays committed to Kif (even though she could have pretty much any man she wanted.  Of course Kif is supposed to be the ultimate male babe in the Futurama universe, and is lusted over by females of many different species, but there are times when Amy does seem to grow a little bit tired of his wimpiness).   And there's also the fact that their million light year long distance relationship doesn't seem to put much strain on them.

I would say Leela's a lot more emotionally slutty then Amy is now.

Yes... but that isn't relevant to which character I prefer. Although Leela definitely has better plots than Amy. The fact that Amy has only had one non-romance episode is rather pathetic. She's a Chinese Martian physicist for crying out loud! It can't be that hard to write an original plot for her.

Exactly.  She's always been pretty plucky and resourceful (Series has Landed for example) when she needs to be, so it would be nice to see more of that side of her.
