The ending showing Leela as a kid was no less than priceless.

i agree! emotional eps are just as good as the funny ones, better even in some ways.



The last time i tried to kill myself was about an hour ago. I jumped off this really tall building. But i ended up doing a triple backflip and landing on my feet. No one saw it of course, except for two little kittens and one kitten turned to the other and said "See? That's how you do that."

Well, *I* like the more emotional episodes. It again shows the versatility of the show which makes it so unique. It at least gives the show an extra dimension
(HEY FOX!! READ THIS!!!).

"But why are we paying for an extra dimension we're not gonna use anyway?" (I, Roommate)

Finally it's done stupid download sites  mad
Anyway pretty good episode in my humble opinion I always like the emotional ones anyway  love . My main problem would have to be with the pacing of the story. I felt it was a tad rushed, it seemed to me more sceans could of been extended to increase the drama and emtional signficance, well I guess that's the problem with being owned by Fox  mad .
Alright the jokes were not fast and thick but it did have some good moments. But I reiterate a significant episode like this one should of been longer perhaps a two parter, aww welll it is done now.

Oh and for all those who yelled at me for saying she was a mutant all I can say is ha  evil laugh

We don't really know much about the weapon she had, maybe the parents were sure that she wouldn't recognize the corpses.

Also, somebody said that if the parents had been watching over Leela, they should have known that she really wants to find them. But Leela was sure that she was an alien, not a mutant. It looks like it makes a difference, right?

I like this episode very much, the final is just priceless.

A bit late, but what the.. Another great episode. Leela's "Fryish", and just as good as it's predecessor. Heartwarming, emotional and funny as h***, trademarks of Futurama that we all have come to love. If only FOX execs would watch episodes like this and Fryish, they'd come to their senses.

Although I would've prefered her to remain an alien, the mutant angle works surprisingly well too. The Leela museum (I wanna go there  big grin), the chase, Fry stopping Leela and the revelation of the truth about her heritage. Great writing, and great animation. The scene were Leela discovered the truth and hugged her parents was just as heartwarming and emotional as the ending of Fryish  cry, and the way it was animated, amazing. The last segment, during the song, was nice, Leela was a cute baby.

I kinda wished they'd saved this episode for a later season, maybe 7-8ish, but maybe they saw the writing on the wall. As some already have mentioned, Leelas search for her homeplanet, and her people, was one of the most fascinating aspects about her character and they really didn't cash in on that. Only one episode, I think they could've made at least 3 or 4 more. Maybe leave little clues she could chase down, only to discover new clues and so on. They could even have used the mutant angle still, just make all the clues lead back to Earth. On the other hand, who is to say that it ends here. Leela and her parents could go on an epic journey in a future episode, to discover that they really are aliens. Maybe her parents came to Earth as small babies, the only surviviors of an alien spaceship that was destroyed in orbit, but I digress.

Things I like: The onelegged mutant (bring him back), "Honest Bender"  laff, the nosemachine, that song "Baby Love Child" (it'll always remind me of Leela as a baby from now on), the highly toxic waste (kinda made me think about "Alien" ) and other stuff that eludes me now.

Some weird things: Is it me or was the drawing of Hermes really strange in the scene with the toxic waste-tasting?

Re: Leela killing her parents. Maybe the gun was powerfull enough to vaporize the bodies of the parents.

Suming up: Great background info on Leela  love, secondbest episode of season 4 (Roswell is that more hillarious). I give it 10/10 (hey I am a Leelaholic, right).

I really liked the mutants in this episode.  Their way of gutteral talking just rocked, mainly the mutant mayor with the arm in his head.  And you couldn't but help feeling sorry for the Leg guy.

And yes, the drawing of Hermes during the tasting of the waste looked freaky.  Like some kinda space potato man.

You mean after she killed her parents? I dunno, maybe.

But still it would validate her parents logic. They didn't know Fry had figured it out, and the disruptor/phaser Leela pointed at them charged to the highest setting. From the parents viewpoint: if she shot them, their bodies would vaporize and nobody else knew the truth. They still thought it would be best for Leela that way. (not that I agree with them  smile)

I only just downloaded and watched this episode, it was good but I think the ending would have been better if Leela really did vaporize her parents.
Whats the deal with futuramas inconsistency?
Her mother clearly had normal human arms in episode 2ACV01 yet now she clearly has testicles for arms, are we supposed to believe she has some sort of magic arms or something, I really hope someone got fired for that one.

If she had testicles for arms he probably did get fired!

This is off topic a bit i guess but I was just wondering how many of you people have seen the movie "Tank Girl"?  I ask because I saw guffman's icon thinngy and I also recently got the 2002 calendar, and when I saw That parody of "Tank Girl" I coulnt stop laughing! Just wondering if anyone appreciated that joke?!?

I haven't read a full page or seen more'n couple of minutes of any given version of Tank Girl, but I did get the calendar gag. It was fantastic seeing Amy playing a "bad girl."
