The Amy Detail That Had Futurama Fans Pressing The Pause Button


A quick detail from the episode “Kif Gets Knocked Up a Notch” has gotten some attention from fans. In the episode, Amy and her boyfriend, Kif, are expecting after an interaction on the ship causes Kif to feel especially loved, which prompts his species into pregnancy. Throughout the episode, Amy struggles with the idea of being a parent but eventually embraces it. 

A Reddit post from user Jezzibell features a screenshot from a brief scene in the episode where Amy brings up that Kif’s baby shower is coming up and she needs to add it to her schedule. It is pulled up and we see a series of blink-and-you’ll-miss-them details regarding Amy’s monthly schedule. 

Those responding to the thread found her schedule to be very revealing of Amy’s personality. User azngangbuzta pokes fun at it saying, “Lol. Trash Molly with Tina. Trash Tina with Molly. And then find new friends.” Between that comical detail, the pity party for the less popular, and the search couch for spare millions, Amy’s rich girl upbringings make themselves hilariously present here. In that vein, user SwiftOryx comments, “Hmm, never took Amy for a mean girl.” Remember, Amy’s parents own the entire western hemisphere of Mars.  While she is a sweet-hearted character, she is still portrayed as being unaware of the world around her. This is especially true in how she looks down at the poor, carrying a sense of pride that she’s above everyone else.
