Episode Two: The Series Has Landed - S1-E2

Other mistake: When the Moon Patrol officers throw Bender out of the airlock onto the moon's surface, they are exposed to hard vacuum, but they aren't wearing space suits. Throughout the episode it is established that the moon's "atmosphere" is a vacuum and protective suits are necessary - when the farmer removes his helmet he begins to asphyxiate instantly.

More trivia for Futurama

Show generally

Question: Does anyone know the name of the episode where Leela kills a bunch of people?

Answer: You are thinking about episode 20 of series 2 – "Anthology of Interest I". She technically never kills anyone, but in the episode she ask a "What if machine" (one of the Professor's inventions) what would happen if she was more impulsive. The machine then shows the more impulsive Leela killing off the Professor to get the money from his will and thereafter killing Hermes, Bender, Scruffy, Cubert, Nibler, Amy and Zoidberg to cover it up. Finally she does something really impulsive with Fry.
