How come in the Cyber House Rules, Adalae draws Leela's second pupil onto her fake eye with a permanent marker, but throughout the episode, she is able to move it around just like the other one?

Maybe it was a temporary eye he drew on, or maybe its the year 3001 and they invented a 'magic' pen. Maybe Maybe maybes the only way to answer this.

Correct me if I'm wrong, I think your pupils don't move but your eyes do.

The entire surgery is kind of weird you would think in the year 3000 they could grow Leela a new eye instead of giving her that cheesey fake one.  If Zoidberg could reattach Fry's head then medicine most have advanced alot and he is a poor surgeon.  So why can't they just grow an eye?

Maybe Leela's biology wouldn't allow for a real second eye.

I'm surprised that nobody has ever questioned that Leela's eye actually seems to have split in two in that episode. Look:

The "error" with the suddenly moving eye is what I like about Futurama: I like to interprete it as some sort of parody of stupid low budget films or this commercial crap the mainstream is supposed to like. I can't stand watching those kind of movies, cause I'm offended by those logic-errors. But in our beloved Futurama (which has proven to be full of sophisticated details) those "errors" are intended! For me it's some kind of in-your-face to commercial crap productions.

Just another reason to love Futurama!

That puddle was cool. Sorry that I'm amused by these simple things, but i'm only about a year-old Futurama fan. Though I do have the first three DVD sets, today's the first day I've been to this sight. I came hoping to tell about Nibbler's shadow in the Pilot, but that's old news.

Whilst on the subject of this episode, in the flashback scene where the orphans were putting down Leela for having one-eye.  Question is, why did she have a crush on someone who was making fun of her?

As stated before, the eyeball moves, not the pupil, so I assume she could, but just wasn’t used to moving two eyes at the same time. This is mainly because she was consciously concentrating on following something.  However, Leela's eye roll was second nature to her; she did it without thinking, so the other eye naturally followed...

do I even make sense anymore?

Adlei explains his procedure to Leela early in the episode. He creates an artificial eye and grafts it to her face with skin from her foot. One eye is fake, one is reconstructed to look smaller. Or it's just magic, I dunno. This kinda thing is real-ish--I knwo, I've been watching Nip/Tuck, where a woman is given a new set of lips grafted from her labia minora.

I don't know about you guys, but when South Australian State Capitols want to give you eye exams, it's time to stop wondering why Leela's pupil moves and run for the hills, lest ye be shrivled under the stark glare of a million city lights focused on thine minute form.

I agree with Fry she looks better with one eye.  She is much hotter that way.    flirt

Wait! Remember when Adali said he would put skin from Leela's foot onto her eyeball? Well, maybe the eye underneath the skin moves the marker-pupiled eye...right?  confused

Adlai: No, I specialise in phaser eye surgery. I can build you a paraffin eye and graft it on with skin from your foot. It won't be able to see but you'll look like a perfectly normal two-eyed person.

Couldn't find search function, and didn't find related posts by simply looking. This might be bit off topic but it is related to same episode: The kid in orphanerium,the one with ear on forehead and she says she even has a tail, so do they thinks shes an alien? or if not why is she on the surface cause if she isnt alien she is (mostlikely) an mutant?

No, aliens and mutants are two separate things. You see aliens (such as Zoidberg, Elzar, and Morbo) in everyday life, roaming the streets. Mutants are mutated humans who have been rejected and forced to live in the sewers.

That's a good question about Sally (the three-eared girl.)  The third ear really doesn't seem as alien-ish as one eye, and if they pegged her as a mutant, they'd send her back down to the sewers.

Maybe its just a standard deformity.  I mean, we have people today with three ears, vestigial tails, tiny arms, etc. not because of toxic waste, but just unfortunate genetic coincidence (or nicotine.)

Why couldn't they just grow Leela another eye? Oh, they probably could with a few of her stem cells and a day or so. But even if they did that, she wouldn't have any of the brain structure to accept input from the new eye.

When we are born, our brains know suprisingly little about the bodies they are in. Brain cells that are not used within a month or so of life die off quickly. An experiment was done, werein an eyepatch was put on a newborn chimp's right eye. After removing the patch a few months latter, the chimp was completly blind in that eye, even though the eye itself was perfectly healthy.

True, but maybe Sally's parents wanted her to live a life as an alien like Leela, so maybe they wrote a note in Alienese so Mr. Vogel could except her as an alien.

Maybe, I'm just thinking that her ear (and tail apparently) looks much more like a natural deformity or a mutation* than Leela's eye does.

*Although that would probably make her the new least-mutated mutant ever.

You think having a third ear on your forehead and a tail is less of a mutation than having one eye?

Even if Sally is a mutant, I believe Leela would still be the least mutated.

I forgot about the tail (in fact I don't even remember where that info came from) but extra ears  and vestigial tails are relatively common "natural" (non-radiation-induced) mutations in the twentieth century.  There is a known mutation that creates single, centered, oversize eyeballs, but (or so I read in some other thread) no human has ever been born alive with it.  So I think it's equally likely that Sally is a mutant or a deformed human with unloving parents.  I don't think she looks like an alien

Yeah, Sally's differences can be explained by a a common deformity but I think she was a mutant.  I bet if the show went on they would have picked up this story line.  And maybe tying into how the mutants got to the sewers to begin with.

Or, you know... Sally's parent's could have done the same thing Leela's did and abandoned her.

My question is how come Leela wasn't forced to the sewers after she found out that she was a mutant.

The crew didn't tell anyone, and they all chipped in to pay off Bender.  I don't remember anyone mentioning the fact to an "outsider."  It's definitely a good plot for a future episode/movie, God willing.  In fact, its been mentioned several times in fics and the movie thread.

So only mutants whose conditions result from radiation are forced to live in the sewers?  That doesn't really sound right.  There probably is a level as to how mutated you have to be to be forced down there, though.

I thought about the Mayor giving the surface passes to Leela, but I don't think she ever actually told him they were for her parents.

Cut scene from Less Than Hero:

Poopenmeyer: There you go. Two one-day mutant surface passes.

Leela: Thank you, Mr. Mayor. I see now i was wrong to vote against you.

Poopenmeyer: You know, we're discontinuing the program. Can you believe mutants have been masquerading as aliens and applying for passes to bring their relatives up? Say, where's your other eye?

Leela: Uh, back on my home planet. Reading.

I certainly hope so, because everyone has a few mutations.

It is kind of odd that mutants were an urban legend until 'Second That Emotion', but after that there is a mutant surface pass program.
