Original Research[edit]

It seems like an entire subplot of this episode has been omitted?

The fight sequence is reminiscent of that found in They Live. I added that. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:11, 10 December 2007 (UTC)

I'll remove it.

Cite the following please;

Why bother citing the commentary? Cite They Live. You can't watch that movie and this episode without seeing that the fight here is a recreation. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jherico (talkcontribs) 18:41, 14 October 2008 (UTC)

Why is this constantly being reverted? It's a lengthy fight sequence that is shot-for-shot identical - see eg. the Indiana Jones sequences in the episode The China Probrem that blatantly referenced films such as Deliverence. Also see the They Live transcript at - note the lines of dialogue that appear in both ("Put on the glasses/hat", "not this year", "dirty mother..."). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:34, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

It's being reverted pending a proper citation, that's all. Simply saying "I've seen similarities" doesn't suffice. Alastairward (talk) 23:10, 11 November 2008 (UTC)

As noted before the similarities between the fight scenes in this episode and They Live is cited in the commentary of the South Park episode. The commentary lasts for only the first ~8 minutes of the episode and it is mentioned in that time. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:40, 16 November 2008 (UTC)

Thanks, I'll try and check that out, it would be a nice addition if cited. Alastairward (talk) 09:56, 17 November 2008 (UTC)

Kenny's death[edit]

Some speculation here, an editor added this knowing that it contradicted the South Park FAQ.

  • Jimmy's unknowing near-miss while wearing Kenny's parka is a reference the the running gag of Kenny's deaths, and suggests that it is in fact his clothing that causes this (though this contradicts the official site's FAQ, which constantly insists that it is caused by the fact that Kenny is poor). In the few seconds that Jimmy wears his parka, he is almost crushed by a falling safe, run over in traffic, picked up by a huge hawk, shot down by Ned and Jimbo ("there he is, kill him, kill him!"), set on fire, caught in a cow stampede, and finally hit by the space shuttle. Much to Timmy's chagrin, he survives unscathed.

Later, after the Supreme Court case ends, Kenny is picked up by the hawk that tried to pick up Jimmy earlier. However, he appears at the end in the final Community Center scene. Alastairward (talk) 07:58, 11 September 2008 (UTC)

Continuity error?[edit]

Not sure if that's what to call it, but in the brief scene at the church, before Cartman opens the doors to yell "Cripple fight!" Gerald and Sheila Broflovski can be seen sitting in one of the pews on the lefthand side of the screen, despite the fact that they're Jewish and wouldn't be attending a catholic mass. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 22:58, 10 November 2009 (UTC)

Kenny's Death?[edit]

Big Gay Al's promotion of libertarianism was weak[edit]

While there were hints that Al was promoting it, such as the fact that he was the only one not cheering when the judges struck the ban down, he did not specify it at all. I personally was convinced from a first glance that he was protesting the fact that the Scout Elders were being extorted after they were forced to be put in stocks for three days "so they could feel what its like to be outcasts." The words in his speech hinted that clearly.2601:447:4000:28C1:4052:18BF:47CA:1966 (talk) 00:05, 14 July 2015 (UTC)
