Jurassic Bark - S5-E2

Deliberate mistake: The fossilised dog looks like the dog did when he was young; it should look old and decrepit, as the dog was when he died. (Presumably deliberate, to avoid a spoiler.).

Suggested correction: They even make a comment about this, he lives there. So he was probably sleeping under the grate but still got ejected. There's parts of the floor we don't see.


The Route of All Evil - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: The back page that has been ripped off is put in the envelope with the top part showing the right way up, but it was folded so if the ads side of the page was showing, either the middle part or the top part upside down would show.

The Route of All Evil - S5-E3

Continuity mistake: The rotation of the feeding mechanism on the newspaper gun changes. It first spins counter-clockwise when Hermes starts firing, then it is shown spinning clockwise for the shot where Dwight takes over.

The Farnsworth Paradox - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: In the very beginning scene, where Fry and Leela are talking, there is an explosion. When some ceiling falls down there is one big bit and three small bits next to Leela's foot but then a few seconds later there is one big bit and a few small bits all in different places. (00:00:40)

The Farnsworth Paradox - S5-E10

Continuity mistake: When Fry first takes the tangled Christmas lights out of the fake box, they are all red and blue. However, when the shot cuts outward to get a wider view, many of the lights have turned green.

Crimes of the Hot - S5-E1

Continuity mistake: Bender is shown to be wearing clogs in the scene where he arrives back from Holland after saving a turtle. However, a few seconds later when he's knocked over, the clogs are gone.

Obsoletely Fabulous - S5-E14

Continuity mistake: When Bender and the other obsolete robots are watching a snail crawl across the beach, the snail is shown to be in the center of the screen with the robots standing around. Cut to Bender inserting a CD in his mouth, it then goes back to showing the original angle, but the snail has suddenly disappeared, and not enough time has passed for it to have crawled all the way out of the shot. (00:12:10)

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.
