so it wasn't the funniest episode ever. who cares? you all know as well as i do that futurama is such an amazing show that its qualities extend far beyond humor. its good to know this about leela and it was wonderful to see her so happy for once. maybe the little montage at the end was a little Cheese-ball Mcgee (and that song is really pretty), but it was really the only appropriate way to have wrapped up the episode. Not to mention the fact that it was great to see pictures of leela at space mardi gras and bumming around with a bunch of buddhists. and all the stuff she flushed down the toilet: a screenplay? speaks wonders of leela's inner state that she would have flushed her own screen play down the toilet. i'm a zoidberg fan myself, but any opportunity we have to learn more about the lives of these beloved friends of ours we should embrace and welcome with open arms.

Not the best episode, but not bad either. 2nd best ending in Futurama, next to Luck of Fryfish.

This episode got a little bit longer than usual to get going, and I didn't really like the way Leela didn't get the picture when everyone else had!! However the ending was tear-jerkingly superb, and makes up for the rest. Funniest part - the reference to "Garfield's owner Jon's forehead!" being in the balloon.

Let's say I liked the episode, generally. Initially, I got perplex about the fact that Leela's parents weren't aliens but mutants. But, besides that, I always thought that Leela wouldn't never found her true parents as the serie goes on and, in any case, never in the sewers just under the office were she works! I think it was just the episode ending that changed my opinion as it was probably the most touching I ever seen. Maybe it was the song by Pizzicato Five, or the fact she found her parents after all...
By the way I gave this episode a "4/5" because it impressed me and donated me many emotions, but this it was quite confusing too. Many of us still remain of the idea that Leela is an alien. An "alien" intended as someone who came from another planet or a distant "world", "society" or whatever else. Let her be a mutant, ok, but a mutant from a distant world or whatever involves a complicated background in her past. The fact they put her parents in the sewers disgusted me as this idea basically stinks, it's too "poor" for "Futurama". Leela is more than just a mutant.. she's a cyclop. Moreover, I would have prefered to see the contents of such episode at the end of the whole serie or at the end of a movie rather than in a common 20 minute episode...

I loved the ending!!! A very heartfelt and classy montage of Leela's growing up and the "covert parenting" of mom & dad. It's nice to know that at least 1 orphan did not grow up alone. Heck, I liked it so much I can almost forgive Matt Groening for the tasteless death of Maude Flanders (Simpsons).

The background song was a perfect match. Others have identified it as "Baby Love Child" by the Japanese pop/dance group Pizzicato Five. The lyrics on the show don't match the lyrics you can find online...the online lyrics are probably a translation
of the original Japanese version. I think a remixed English version was used last night.

Sometimes complete and utter sappy sweetness is what is needed.

The montage at the end is a work of pure creative genius.
