Gods and Clods[edit]

another goof[edit]

When Kyle, Stan, and Cartman are on the way to Kenny's house and Cartman sings "In the Ghetto" Cartman does not have his sleeping bag but when they get to the front porch he has it.

Information on Different Herpes[edit]

There's a huge distinction between the chicken pox the kids go through and the herpes the parents later get. Among other things, chicken pox you (usually) get over, but herpes (e.g., in the form of cold sores) is incurable. I think this information is obvious to anyone who's generally familiar with infectious diseases -- but may not be obvious to many people who watch the show and/or read this article. Therefore I request some note to this effect put into the article. It might also be useful to have a note that it used to be common for parents to expose their kids (in particular to make sure the kids don't get chicken pox as adults, when it could make them sterile) but that now this is understood to be both unnecessary and potentially dangerous.

Unreferenced claims[edit]

Cites and/or relevance;

  • This episode makes extensive use of The Monkees' "I'm a Believer" in the montage of Old Frida infecting everything with herpes and also in the ending credits.
  • When the doctor is explaining to Stan's parents what will happen if Stan (who has contracted chicken pox) does not return to the hospital, the doctor tells them that "As he chokes for breath, the pox will move into his inner ear, making him think he's David Duchovny!".
  • On the way to Kenny's house, Cartman sings "In the Ghetto" by Elvis Presley.
  • In the shot of Kyle being the only student in class after Garrison concludes his lesson on how to tell a police officer from a prostitute, a still from the animated short "American History" (done by Trey Parker when he was in college) can be seen on the wall.
  • After arriving at Kenny's house, Cartman wonders if they have a Nintendo system. Kenny's father states, "We don't have a Nintendo. We got a ColecoVision hooked up to the black and white TV"; to the puzzlement of his friends. Kyle went far enough as to say: "Oh my god, this is like a third-world country."

Calamine lotion[edit]

Cartman used calamine lotion to treat the iching. It could be mentioned in the article. Coasttrial1 (talk) 22:21, 1 January 2010 (UTC)
