"Tats" - comes from "tit for tat" (this for that). Pluralize the phrase, and you get "tits for tats." Tits!
"Tit" was one of the Seven Forbidden Words for television. The others are piss, cock, shit, fuck, bitch, and asshole. But asshole and bitch have been used for quite some time now, and shit was used on CBS in context.
A new facial expression appears: that of the eyes shut intently (Butters averting his gaze, Cartman analyzing the tiger teeth).
Methinks Jennifer Howell has taken the role of Liane Cartman. Bebe didn't speak once, but Jennifer's name is listed in the voices.
The Wall Street Journal (4/7/2000) reports that Dreamcasts are selling for $199 plus tax. Cartman, having lost 112 teeth and getting money for each tooth, should have had enough for the Dreamcast easily. Stan notes that they are $167 away from a Sega.
Cartman throws his pillow off his bed, but it magically pops back on the bed in the next scene.
This is Timmy, the newest student in Mr. Garrison's class. He is mentally retarded and in a wheelchair. Still, he is happy to be himself. And he has a pedigree. Around this time last year (May 8, 1999), The New York Observer reported that the mischievous duo (Trey Parker and Matt Stone) had backed a Daily Show-type pilot, "How's Your News?", featuring reporters with various developmental disabilities. The reporter in the wheelchair is named Larry Perry. Read below, and if you'd like, send a contributuion to:|

First, Stan got his knees in "Two Guys Naked In A Hot Tub" Now the others get theirs. Does this mean that the bottoms of their shoes will no longer be seen when they sit on the bus and in their desks? Or on the sofas?
When the boys begin walking in Cherry Creek Cartman is the third one in line, so Stan and Kyle look to their left to pay attention to him as he talks. The question is, why does Kenny?
The house the boys visit is varied enough to remind one of the former Ramsey house in Boulder, CO.
When the kids reach the house, a mansion reminiscent of the Baldwin manor in South Park: Bigger, Longer, & Uncut is seen across the street, only this manor is brick red.
One or two of Loogie's boys come off sounding like Underpants Gnomes.
Loogie's Ristorante address: 714. Loogie is based on Don Corleone in The Godfather, raspy voice and all. Loogie returns as Luigi in the sixth season when the boys choose a new friend after they get tired of Butters.
Loogie is an equal-opportunity employer. One of Loogies's fairies is Timmy!
Kenny wears the same suit Marc Shaiman wore to the Oscars, minus the outer fur coat.
The UN building interior is recycled to be the ADA convention hall.
Here's the actual solution to the algebra problem the chicken-squirrel is trying to solve. It should become apparent to anyone who has taken Algebra I that the solution the chicken-squirrel comes up with is just wrong. Not even the steps it takes to get at the answer are right. The chicken-squirrel has a poor understanding of algebra!
|Start:||(2x + 4y - (6 + 3z)) = (2y - 3z + 2)|
|Consolidate:||2x + 4y - 6 - 3z = 2y - 3z + 2|
|Eliminate -3z:||2x + 4y - 6 = 2y + 2|
|Add 6 - 2y to both sides:||2x + 4y - 6 + 6 - 2y = 2y + 2 + 6 - 2y|
|Add like terms:||2x + (4y - 2y) + (6 - 6) = (2y - 2y) + (2 + 6)|
|Simplify:||2x + 2y = 8|
|Divide both sides by 2:||x + y = 4|
|Or:||y = -x + 4|
The kid in the middle of the group 8-year-old Chef encounters is wearing an Alvin (of Alvin and the Chipmunks) shirt.
|At the cafeteria||Space-Time and Quantum Theory||"Dude, this book says there could be infinite alternate realities to every reality."|
|At Cartman's house||Taoism and Zen Philosophy||"Oh my God, this book says that negative and positive are the same thing; that real and not real are one."|
|At Cartman's house, while the human-interet story airs||Descartes||"Dude, this book says I don't exist unless I think I do. But what if I don't [think I do]?"|
Kyle's last existential question: "Light is a wave unless it's observed? That means all matter is just a wave." This is basically wave-particle duality, which is covered in the first book Kyle reads.
Behind Kyle and the hot tub, Cartman's toys can be seen arranged in a display case.
When Billy sees Cartman with the $600, his blanket turns yellow.
When Kyle's head appears and begins to warp itself and the space it is in, Primus' "Welcome To This World," (or is it "Pork Soda?") from the album Pork Soda plays in the background. Contrary to some opinions, Kyle does not turn into the half-chicken/half-squirrel.
There's probably a reason why this episode was renumbered 402 instead of 401: in episode 204 Chef says, "There's a time and a place for everything, and it's called 'college.'" Now, in episode 402, he asks them what he's said about drugs.
The scene where Kyle's fetus floats against the starry sky comes from the last scene in 2001: A Space Odyssey, in which a fetus — a Star Child — with Mission Commander Dave Bowman's features floats in an amniotic sphere on a bed, then next to Earth, and finally alone on the screen.
