In the episode "Bloody Mary", Randy has to attend an AA meeting, and there are 12 (I think) steps on the board to recover from alcoholism. What are they? Good eye, dude! Here's "The Twelve Steps", as they appear on that board in "Bloody Mary" (914). And keep in mind, this isn't something made up by Matt and Trey -- this is right on point with Alcoholics Anonymous' actual 12 Step Program: 1. Admit that you are powerless over your drinking. 2. Believe that a power greater than yourself can help you. 3. Turn your life over to God as you understand him. 4. Make a moral inventory. 5. Admit to God the exact nature of your wrongs. 6. Be ready to have God remove you of your defects. 7. Humbly ask god to remove your shortcomings. 8. Make a list of the people you harm, and become willing to make amends to them all. 9. Make amends to those people whenever possible, except when to do so would injure others. 10. Continue to take a personal inventory and when you are wrong promptly admit it. 11. Seek through prayer and mediation to improve our conscious contact with God as we understand him, praying only for knowledge of his will for you and the power to carry that out. 12. Once you have a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, you tried to carry this message to alcoholics, and to practice these steps in all of your life.

Who is that guy that appears for split second while Kyle dreams of torturing Jesus? In season 8, episode "The Passion of the Jew" (07:15)? That silver fox is TV and film star Alan Alda. He's best known for his roles in "M*A*S*H" and "The West Wing".

Not sure if this has been asked before, but is Randy's "study room" in Creme Fraiche in any other episodes? Technically, Trey calls it "Randy's Office" in the script. And it definitely has appeared before -- most famously in "More Crap" (1109), as the place where Randy houses his record-breaking turd. A different part of his office is also shown in "Over Logging" (1206) and "You're Getting Old" (1507).

I was looking through the Characters Guide today and came across something I never remember seeing in any episode When was it revealed that Scott Tenorman and Eric Cartman are half-brothers??? It's true. Cartman's half-ginger. This fact was revealed in the controversial two-parter "200" and "201", where we discovered that Cartman did indeed have a father...Jack Tenorman!! Those episodes are kinda hard to find, but the censored versions are available only on DVD/Blu-Ray right here.

Is that an alien driving a limo at the end of the episode "Cow Days"? It is indeed! Their big, beady eyes make them excellent drivers...unlike old people.
