Leela: And what about this? Where did you get this bracelet? Did you steal it from me when I was a baby? Or from my parents? You robbed my parents, didn't you? I bet you sick mutants killed them! My parents were confused aliens lost on Earth and you killed them! Is that it? Admit it!
Turanga Morris: Yes. We killed them.
Turanga Munda: You guessed the truth.
Leela: Argh! Because of you, I'll never meet my real parents! I'll kill you!

Where is Leela from?
23 June 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After getting the 'Orphan of the Year' award Leela looks are the sky and wonders what happened to her alien parents... as two one-eyed mutants look up at her from a sewer grate. Bender meanwhile has gone into the waste disposal business; which incurs the wrath of the sewer mutants as he is just pouring the waste down the nearest drain! As he is trying to force a whale carcass into the sewers the ground gives way and the mutants reach up and grab him along with Leela and Fry. As punishment for the pollution they say that they will throw the trio into the mutagenic swamp, which will turn them into mutants. They flee and hide; in the room they hide in they find something rather surprising... the walls are covered with pictures of Leela. Leela is disturbed at the idea of having a mutant stalker but before she cam worry about it too much they are captured. This time the mutants announce there intention to kill them; until two hooded characters have a word in the chief-mutants ear... then they say they will expel them from the sewer. As they are climbing the ladder to the hatch Leela looks back and dives back down into the lake... she much know who has been spying on her and why somebody would want to set them free. Fry meanwhile heads to the Orphanarium to see what he can find out about Leela in order to get her to come back.

This was a fine episode; far more emotional than most yet still packed with plenty of laughs. It was great to finally learn just what Leela was even if she was a mutant! It was touching how her parents cared so much for her that they could give her up for a better life on the surface even though it meant she would probably never know them. The scene where she finally realises that they are her parents is one of the most touching in the series so far, and I loved the 'Baby Love Child' montage at the end. Comedy highlights included Bender and the whale and Leela getting out of the swamp with what looked like an octopus on her head... it was actually a mutated blonde girl!
