List of South Park episodes
"Probably" is the 10th episode of the fourth season of the animated television series South Park, and the 58th episode of the series overall. "Probably" originally aired in the United States on July 26, 2000, on Comedy Central. The episode was rated TV-MA. It is the second part of a two-part episode, which concludes the story-line from "Do the Handicapped Go to Hell?".
The South Park children build a church-shaped shack to live in sinlessness, and do not go to school, avoid home as much as possible, and listen earnestly to Cartman, who acts like a televangelist preacher. Kenny calls from Ensenada, Mexico where the bus that hit him in the previous episode dragged him. However, the boys believe that he is in Hell and that he is calling from "beyond the grave". Cartman uses Kenny's description of Mexico as the "Underworld" for his next sermon.
In the real Hell, Satan is now in a love triangle situation with his former lover, Saddam, and his present one, Chris. Chris and Saddam repeatedly murder each other, only to reappear since they are in Hell in the first place. Satan wonders if he should be with Saddam, whom he finds sexually attractive, or Chris, who is kinder and nicer. JonBenét Ramsey, who is in Hell, then suggests that he ask God for help.
The Hell Director welcomes a group of new arrivals to Hell. Many of them are observant religious people who express surprise at being there, but they are told that only Mormons were right after all and are saved.
Satan goes to visit God, who has the same strange appearance as seen in Are You There God? It's Me, Jesus. God wonders how come his rebellious enemy has become "a whiny little bitch" He tells him that he has become dependent on his relationships and suggests he dump both lovers, spend time alone, and learn to appreciate himself, stating that it's how good relationships grow. Satan agrees and thanks God for his counsel before returning to Hell.
Meanwhile, Cartman has turned the children's church into an Evangelical-type cult and attempts to perform miracles during his services. Soon, Stan and Kyle discover Cartman swimming in cash in the back room. Cartman confesses easily that the whole thing has merely been his latest scheme to make ten million dollars by conning the other children. Stan and Kyle are disillusioned by this, but they can't do anything about it as long as other children give their money to Cartman. Sister Anne however asks Jesus to visit. Jesus tells the children that God does not want them to be afraid of Hell or to just worship all day, but to help others and live good happy lives. The children, touched by this, agree with Jesus and decide to leave to do their daily tasks in home and school. Jesus punishes Cartman for deceiving his friends by sending him to somewhere "worse" than Hell - Mexico - to think about his sins, and Cartman happens to meet Kenny at the bus stop.
Satan tells Saddam and Chris that he does not want to be with either of them and asks them to go away. Chris agrees and leaves Satan, but Saddam refuses to go, and continues harassing him. As a special favor from God to Satan however, Saddam is sent to Heaven to be greeted by the Mormons there, to his utter horror.
