Question:

Which episode does Martha Stewart stick the turkey up her butt?

Which episode does Martha Stewart stick the turkey up her butt?

Answer

The technical term is "Intero-Rectogestion", and it's the best way to keep a turkey tender. You can see Stewart getting gritty with Intero-Recto in "Red Hot Catholic Love" (608). She also decorates her queefs for the holidays in "Eat, Pray, Queef" (1304).

Question:

What's the episode where the guy says "ain't that a peach"?

ThIs is kind of a silly question... But which episode is the one where the boys are in a forest with huge fruit and one guy says "Ain't that a peach?" and then "How do you like THEM apples?" I can't find the episode and I've been meaning to show my friend. Thanks!

Answer

Happy to help out, dude! That's a relatively obscure quote from the episode "Pandemic II: The Startling" (1211), when the Llama Brothers get sent on a one-way trip to Land of the Giants Lost World. You can watch it here, but keep an eye out for scary guinea pirates...

Question:

What's the deal with the episode numbers?

Hey Mr. FAQ guy, first off, since this is my first question I'd love to say, I fucking absolutly LOVE South Park, can't wait till season 16! And this has really been confusing me, how many episodes are there in South Park? I know that there are around 223 episodes right? But why is it that, for example, "Pandemic" is the 177th episode, but then somewhere else is says Episode (1210). I feel pretty stupid asking this but what's with those numbers in the (..)?? That's not really the episode, is it? What is it for?

Answer

Don't be so hard on yourself, dude! You're not the first one to wonder what all those numbers are about. It basically breaks down like this -- there are 223 episodes total, but the main way we label episodes is with the numbering system you mentioned (ie -- "Pandemic" being Episode 1210). This is how episodes are numbered during production. It tells us what SEASON the episode is from, as well as what NUMBER the episode is. For example, "Pandemic" comes from Season 12, and it's the 10th episode we made that season. Hence, it's 1210. Another example is "Chinpoko Mon" from Season 3. That was episode 10 during that third season. It's number would be 0310. You getting it?

The other numbers you mentioned (from #1 to #223) would just be the chronological number of the episode, in relation to the series. That's good for Wikipedia and stuff, but it's not very helpful for us. But hey, we'll let you use whichever system you like best.

Question:

Is that an alien behind Randy in "Bloody Mary"??

Why is there an alien in the reflection of the car in the episode "Bloody Mary", when Randy is negotiating with Stan to drive him? :o

Answer

Officially adding this one to the Most Frequently Asked Questions, since this is a great question and it gets asked all the time. There is indeed a very visible little Visitor in the back window of the car, hanging out behind Randy. See if you can spot it below...

The "why" part of that question is simple: Visitors appear all the time in South Park. In the background, in crowds, on the walls, in the artwork -- they pop up quickly, when you least expect it. But if you're REALLY craving some answers, watch the episode "Cancelled" (704). It explains... everything!

Question:

Is that a parody of "Life of Brian"?

In "Last of the Meheecans", when Butters wakes up and looks at the town naked -- is that copying "Life of Brian"?

Answer

Nice to see there's still some Monty Python fans out there! It is indeed a parody of the classic scene from "Life of Brian", where he opens up the window to see a whole street full of chanting followers. Only with Mantequilla, they speak Spanish...and they love butters.

Question:

Who is the man in episode "200" holding an Oscar?

Who is the man in episode "200" holding an Oscar? I don't know many celebrities but I was wondering who the one holding an Oscar was. I don't know if you're allowed to talk about that episode or not because it was banned.

Answer

That would be Phil Collins clutching the Oscar ever-so-tightly. As with almost all of the celebrities featured in the "200"/"201" saga, Collins had appeared previously in South Park. In fact, Phil Collins a pretty special celebrity in the South Park world. In 1999, Trey Parker was nominated for an Oscar for his song "Blame Canada" (from the South Park movie, Bigger, Longer, & Uncut)...but lost to Phil Collins, who won for Tarzan's "You'll Be In My Heart".

Almost immediately after this, they featured an Oscar-toting Phil Collins in "Timmy 2000" (404). You should watch the episode and see where that Oscar ends up....

Question:

Who is that picture of in Cartman's living room?

My boyfriend and I have been wondering this for a long time...Who the hell is that girl in the real-life picture in the first episode "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe"?

Answer

Props to you and your boyfriend for that awesome question. That high school yearbook-ish picture next to Cartman's couch is a picture of one of the show creator's sisters. It's a little inside-joke easter egg, and it's only there for the first few seasons.

Question:

Is the title of the episode "Are You There, God? It's Me, Jesus" a parody of the the Judy Blume book?

Umm had a quick question: Is the title of the episode "Are You There, God? It's Me, Jesus" a parody of the the Judy Blume book "Are You There, God? It's Me, Margaret" or is this just a weird coincidence.

Answer

That's no coincidence. Matt and Trey frequently parody book and movie titles -- and even the occasional TV episode -- in the names of their episodes. Some other examples of books that have been spoofed are "Eat, Pray, Queef" (Episode 1304, a parody of "Eat, Pray, Love" by Elizabeth Gilbert), "Up The Down Steroid" (Episode 803, a nod to "Up The Down Staircase" by Bel Kaufman), and "Something Wall-Mart This Way Comes" (Episode 809, an homage to Ray Bradbury's "Something Wicked This Way Comes").

Question:

I can't wait for new episodes! Should I freeze myself?!?

I don't think I can wait until March 14 for Season 16 to start. Should I freeze myself, then I can be thawed out when the new season gets here?

Answer

I wouldn't recommend it. Unless you wanna end up in 2546 surrounded by pissed off Otters and totally miss the season premiere.

Question:

Did Kyle ever have a girlfriend?

Did Kyle ever have a girlfriend?

Answer

I don't know if they were ever "Facebook official", but Kyle fell hard for Rebecca (the home-schooled girl) back in "Hooked on Monkey Phonics" (313). He even wrote her a love song. But then they kissed...and she turned into a slut. Even so, it was good while it lasted.

Question:

Any plans of bringing Scott Tenorman back?

Hey FAQ dude, in Episode "201" (which is no longer aired so no one may have seen it or will see it), Scott Tenorman said he'll be back. Are there any plans of bringing him back? It would be an awesome "Final Showdown" episode.

Answer

You're definitely gonna be seeing more of Tenorman. In fact, he's the main villain in our upcoming Xbox Live game "Tenorman's Revenge". The game comes out in a few months, and believe me, there are several epic showdowns between Cartman and his wicked step-brother.

As for on the show, you never know what Matt and Trey are going to do. But my guess is we haven't seen the last of Tenorman...

Question:

Which episodes do Cartman's stuffed animals appear in?

Which episodes do Polly Prissy-Pants and the rest of Cartman's stuffed animals appear in?

Answer

It's hard to list EVERY episode his stuffed animals (Polly Prossypants, Peter Panda, Rumper Tumpskin, and Clyde Frog) have appeared in. They show up pretty frequently in the background, mostly in Cartman's basement and bedroom.

But, here are some of their best cameos. This is by no means a complete list, but it's pretty solid:

They all had their big debut at the tea party in "Cartman's Mom Is A Dirty Slut" (113) and played Wild Wild West in "Cat Orgy" (307). Polly played lambs "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society" (610). Clyde Frog makes a daring escape in "Fat Camp" (415), finds faith in "Probably" (411), gets a tearful goodbye in "Die Hippie, Die" (902), and is ripped apart by Kyle in "Tonsil Trouble"(1201). Clyde Frog and Rumper Tumpskin also graced the presence of Cartman's show in "Dances With Smurfs" (1308).

Unfortunately, ALL of his stuffed animals meet their demise, one-by-one, in season fifteen's murderous "1%" (episode 1512). Even the impenetrable Muscle Man Marc tragically bit the dust...

Question:

When does Timmy get chased by a dinosaur?

In what episode does Timmy get chased by a dinosaur?

Answer

Timmy out-wheels a triceratops in "4th Grade" (412), after the Star Trek Nerds rig his wheelchair to be a time machine. Check it out it below. Timmmaaaaaayy!

Question:

When did Stan and Wendy get back together?

Hey FAQ Dude, I was wondering if you could tell me in what episode Stan and Wendy got back together after Wendy left Stan for Token?

Answer

After breaking up in "Raisins" (714), Stan and Wendy rekindle the flame in "The List" (1114). There's no official boyfriend-girlfriend announcement, but the puke shot at the end pretty much seals the deal. Ahhh, young love.

Question:

Was that a pan flute cover of "Cars"?

Hey faq guy -- at the end of "Pandemic 2: The Startling", is that a pan flute version of Gary Newman's "Cars"?

Answer

Great ear, dude! That is indeed a pan flute cover of Gary Newman's 1979 new wave hit. Gotta be honest though, I think the Llama Brothers might rock it a little harder...

Question:

Has Cartman ever kissed a girl?

In "Butters' Bottom Bitch", Cartman is making fun of Butters for never having kissed a girl, but has Cartman ever kissed a girl? When?

Answer

Great question, and the answer might actually surprise you. Cartman HAS kissed a girl....Wendy! Back in Season 4's "Chef Goes Nanners", Wendy and Cartman get assigned to work together and sparks fly. You can watch that passionate moment below....

Don't worry though, their romance was short lived. Wendy has since rekindled her love for Stan and beaten the crap out of Cartman.

Question:

Did Timmy finally get a last name in"T.M.I."?

On the episode "T.M.I.", I noticed when the boys where looking at there new penis sizes, it showed that Timmy had a last name. But it was unclear to read...so does Timmy have a last name that I've missed?

Answer

No need to strain your eyes dude, I'll help you out with that easter egg! Timmy's name on the "Boys' Actual Penis Size" chart reads: Timmy Burch. So it looks like TimTim's finally got a last name!

Matt and Trey do have a tendency to switch up surnames though, maybe this one will stick.
