The last 3 scenes that show how her parents have been near her all this time are superbe and well thought through. Of course not as funny as other episodes, but that wasn't the intention I suppose. This one and the Fry brothers-episode (forgot the name) must be the 2 most emotional episodes.

one of the most emotional episodes i have ever seen in the series. the ending made me cry while the song played showing leela's life as she grew up conquering every opstacle in her outkasted life with the hidden help of her loving parents. ;)

I thought this was one of the better story-driven episodes of the series, bordering on a little on the sappy (not quite as sad as "Jurassic Bark," not quite as good as "Luck of the Fryish"). Great bit with Bender stuffing a whale down a manhole.

People can hate on this episode all they want but the fact remains that even comedy shows delve into serious story arcs now and then. The Simpsons being a prime example. If i thought of all the poor Lisa Simpson episodes my head would explode. Leela's parents wanting a better life for her was great, and there were even a few good laughs in there as well. And if you can't find any kind of happiness when here parents are subtlely looking out for here while the superb "Baby Love Child" by Pizzicato 5 is playing they you sir have no heart.

No matter how many times I catch this episode, the end sequence brings a tear to my eye.

Plenty of jokes throughout, but more of a plot-driven episode than a comedic romp. The plot builds upon itself throughout the episode nicely and of course ends with a visual sequence that provides an excellent cap to the story arc.

I hold this episode and Luck O' The Fryish in the same regard. They both delve into character backstories and provide more depth to the character. The problem is that a lot of people don't care about Leela for some reason (I blame Peggy Bundy), hence LOTF is generally regarded as a better episode.

I would probably give this a four but i have to make up for the harsh scores handed out by other voters. The surprise was very unexpected, there was some good bender moments and had what i thought was the most emotional final scene out of all futurama episodes.

It was funny and touching, but I agree with anyone who say that they should have kept this plot a secret until the end of the series.

I like the stuff about family things in futurama.
So I loved the end part leela's growing up with parents behind her.

I don't know why this one get no 4-5 ratings but I will surely give my 5 points to it.
