Trivia

In the scene where Fry, Leela, and Bender are surrounded by the mutants, Leela's real mother and father (who are not introduced until season four) are clearly visible in the crowd. This appearance was intentional on the part of the creators who had conceived of Leela's true origin before they even pitched the idea for Futurama (1999) to FOX. This episode features the original design for Leela's parents in which Morris has a normal mouth and Munda has normal human arms. It was later decided that the characters would need to appear more mutated and the design was changed. See more »

Professor Hubert Farnsworth: Actually, through the miracle of science, that can be arranged.
Fry: Uh-oh. Is this gonna be one of those crazy experiments that crosses a line man was not meant to cross?

The One Where Bender Flushes Nibbler Down The Toilet...
1 May 2015 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I really like this episode. It's cute, it's funny and it warms your heart a little.

In this episode, Bender is fed up with Nibbler, Leela's pet, so he flushes him down the toilet. Everyone is so upset at him because of that and because he has not emotions towards anything. So Professor Farnsworth makes him an emotional transponder so he can feel what Leela is feeling. Bender is actually very devastated when he realizes how much he hurt Leela. So to try and make her feel better, he, Fry and Leela all go down into the ruins of Old New York to find him.

Fun Fact: Nibbler actually bites Bender's shiny metal ass.

Title Screen Gag: Made from meat by-products.

Overall, I give this episode a 9 out of 10, which in my ratings book is: Amazing.
