As I sit down to ponder my vote here, I must take into consideration the qualifications of the candidates.  One the one hand, we have the star of the show, its best, most human (literally) source of comedy, and a genuinely lovable Everyman.  And of course, he did do the nasty in the pasty.

Verily.
On the other hand, we have the show's straight (wo)man.  Though she had few memorable lines or jokes to herself, the comic balance of the show would have been lost without her. She was the source of some of the most emotionally wonderful episodes (though Fry had his own now that I think about it.) And of course, she did do the nasty with the Zapper.
 
Quote
Bam.
Both characters overcame adversity - Fry his stupidity and Leela her ridiculously unpleasant childhood - to become respectively a delivery boy* and a starship captain.
They are two sides of the same coin: Fry naive and optimistic, Leela practical and cynical, if a bit cocky. Both can be utter, utter morons sometimes (see LLLiS, ABBFT, TWOF and LH for Leela, pretty much every other episode for Fry.)
And of course, these two characters share a love - on some level or another - much stronger, truer to life, and deeper than almost any other fictional television couple, which makes it even harder to choose one over the other.

To summarize, and before I get into too deep of a psychological/literary analysis here, I can't really decide, so I'll go with Leela.  I've supported her through several tough contests, and I won't stop now.

I won't mind if Fry wins, though.

As cool of a character as Leela is, I gotta go with Fry on this... after all, it is Fry who is the only other person I know, fictional or not, who has done a 100 cup of coffee challenge, which I repeated... with pretty disgusting results.

The way I figure it, Fry deserves a chance to win without his clover.

Fry. No discussion necessary.

I find it sad that the final four characters were the four that everyone expected to be there. It seems like we've spent a lot of time to find out what we already knew.

You guys all [EDIT]make yourselves sound like[/EDIT] sore losers.  Seriously, vote on the contest at hand, i.e. "which character do you prefer: Fry or Leela."  Bender (and Farnsie) lost, get over it.  This is the worst reason to vote for anything I have ever seen.  Except maybe in the last Presidential.

Voted for Fry. Sure, Leela may have boobies, but he's funnier and more likeable.

Funnilly enough, I'm voting against Leela both out of spite, and because I think Fry's a superior character. I'm just that complex.

It's hard to think of unique reasons/comments that are even slightly entertaining after all this time, cut us evil people some slack.

I voted for Fry because I hate him  :rolleyes:

This is like Homer vs. Marge...go Marge! Or Peter vs. Lois. Oh, I can't count how many times I've watched Family Guy so I can see the entertaining antics of Lois Griffin!

I voted for Fry not out of spite, but because I do like him as a character better than Leela.

Well that's alright then, if you honestly think Fry's better. Your posts didn't reflect that, though, and I was worried the poll was getting too biased.  Unfairly biased I mean.

I briefly glimpsed this poll a few hours after it started, and the close race had me a bit worried that I might not have picked the correct winner. Fortunately PEELers are pathetically predictable.

So now I can vote for my favorite character, and not the one I picked as winner. Also what N-O-R said.
