Trivia

Leela's apartment number is 1I (Leela only has one eye). Also, in the show's pilot, she says that her officer code is 1B-DI ("one beady eye"). See more »

Goofs

The term parasite refers to a life-form that harms another life-form in order to survive. Technically, since the worms thrived inside Fry and improved his biologic functions to the point where he was much more intelligent and much stronger, they would not be parasites, but, rather, symbiotic with Fry.

The peak of the series
20 September 2006 | by (California, United States) – See all my reviews

Everything that happens in the first couple seasons of this series culminates to this episode. From the first episode, Space Pilot 3000, we recognize the potential of Fry and Leela, and throughout the early seasons, we see near kisses (the Titanic Episode and the X-mas episode) as well as a hint at Fry's affection (War is the H-word), but we never actually see Fry proclaim his undying love for her.

Well, this is the episode Fry-Leela fans have waited years to see. Bender fans probably won't enjoy this episode that much, but that's their loss. The episode is hilarious, but has some great romantic moments as well. The scene with the Holophonar is gorgeously animated, and the ending is moderately touching. It has it all.

This episode is the turning point in the series. Before this point, all romance between Fry and Leela is strictly taboo. After this point, it's all out in the open. It's a great episode, and possibly the most important plot point in the series.
