"Put It Down"

"We don't want you to die, Eric" parodies "1-800-273-8255 by Logic ft. Alessia Cara & Khalid

Creek are back. Heiman is not balanced now, as Heidi is being marginalized by Cartman.

Lots of topics to touch on, not much time to do them - North Korea, Trump's Tweets, Fidget Spinners, Suicide Awareness, Logic, Texting While Driving, etc.

Kyle's line at the lunch table in the preview, "Yeah dude, you've gotta get him to stop scaring everybody," has been removed from the episode.

This began some time ago, but it's worth noting that each kid now has an individualized lunch, so that no two of them are necessarily the same.

Kenny shows up as one of the fatalities in the message at the end of the episode. We don't see when he died, but we know how he died.

Cartman is back in a relationship he doesn't want to be in, despite him threatening suicide if Heidi doesn't take him back.

Richard Tweek doesn't wear his name tag in this episode. Back in "Gnomes" he wore a tag, at work and at home, that said "Mr. Tweek" on it, thereby revealing the original spelling of his last name. The official SPS Wiki says Tweek's last name is Tweak, the spelling shown in "T.M.I.," thus superseding the original spelling. Future transcripts will have "Tweak" as the last name.

Craig says "babe" and "honey" to Tweek, but Tweek is too anxious to do the same to Craig.

The transformation is now complete. Garrison's glasses are gone, leaving only his ears to remind us that it's him in the Oval Office.

Customers are still buying member berries, lol.

The boy Cartman walks up to in "Please Don't Die, Eric" called himself Douglas in "Dances With Smurfs" and was first seen in "Breast Cancer Show Ever."

When Tweek goes to Craig's house in the middle of the night to talk to him about the latest Presidental tweet, he turns on Craig's TV. The cartoon that appears is a nod to The New Shmoo, a 1979 cartoon based on Al Capp's "Shmoo."

Tweek now lives at 20288. He used to live at 17091.

Is that Nelly with her mom in the autopia ride at the Denver amusement park?

Autopia rides are designed to keep cars on track, so it takes quite a bit of effort to get one off the track. Or maybe just a Presidential tweet. :D

Even amusement park car rides are prone to distracted drivers, lol.

Cartman's part in the song "Put It Down" is the closest thing to Eminem appearing on the show yet. Some 17 years ago there were rumors that Eminem would provide a voice for the show, and the closest thing Eminem did to that is make the song "The Kids."

The ASL interpreter provided the correct signs for the words being sung in "Put It Down."

New term: being President = being a distracted driver.

If you look closely, you can see the top of Cartman's head to Bebe's right and behind Nicbole.

Josh Gad is a consultant again this week, and Kobe Ervin (as Kobe Irving) provides a voice.

And finally, Hye-Yeong Jeon - "Whistle", a North Korean pop song.
