They're living every parents nightmare right now, as last night while Miss Stotch was driving with her son in her car, a man stopped her, put a gun to her head and took her son away. When asked who the man was, Miss Stotch replied "Some Puerto Rican guy." Naturally the police are on an all-out man hunt for some Puerto Rican guy.

    Notes (5)

    • When Butters is searching the bathhouse for his father, the music playing is "It Feels So Good" by Sonique.

    • The theme song "Everyone Knows It's Butters" is a takeoff of the 1967 hit “Windy" by The Association.

    • After the opening theme song, the headline on Mr. Stotch's newspaper says: "Towelie Ban Lifted." This is a reference to the earlier episode "Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants".

    • Stan, Kyle and Cartman appear in this episode, and Kyle never speaks.

    • This episode does not feature the regular opening credit sequence.

    Trivia (9)

    • Even though there is no Christmas theme in this episode, when Mrs. Stotch drives up to the dock, "Jingle Bell Rock" is heard, which hints that this episode takes place in late November or earlyDecember, and is the only Christmas reference in the episode with the episode being released just before Christmas.

    • When Butters's father calls him into the room for a talk, Butters leaves the door open. in the next shot, the door has closed.

    • When Butters is searching the sauna for his father, he opens one door and a voice says, "This room's taken". That voice is Mr. Slave's, him and Mr. Garrison must have met at that sauna because Mr. Garrison was there in the steam room.

    • This season-ending episode made season 5 the first season without a Christmas themed episode.

    • When Linda paints Butters' face, the paint is the color of the wall instead of the color of Linda's paint.

    • Current Event: JonBenet Ramsey Murder: Mr. Stotch: (Ramseys shown) YOU KNOW GOD-DAMN WELL WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR KID! SO STOP ACTING LIKE VICTIMS, AND CONFESS YOU MURDERING MURDERERS! JonBenet Ramsey was found dead in her basement, and no one knows who killed her. People still say that the parents killed her.

    • Current Event: Susan Smith: Mrs. Stotch: I'm am going to get out of the car Butters, I want you to stay put with your seatbelt fastened. Susan Smith did the same thing but she had two younger chidren in the car that went in the lake.

    • Freaks: The Ramseys, OJ, and Gary Condit: One of us, one of us...gooble gobble, gooble gobble. This an allusion to a classic and weird film called Freaks from 1932. In a circus, a normal woman marrying a little man for his money. The freaks sing this to the woman, letting her know they accept her. In fact I think the guy who started the chant much later played "Master" in Mad Max: Beyond Thunderdome.

    • Pet Sematary: Old Man: A lot of history on that road. The character of the wise old man who explains to Butters about the history of the road, is actually a parody of the character of Jud Crandall in the 1989 film Pet Sematary. In the film, Jud, explains the history of the path to the cemetery, using the sentence "A lot of history on that path"

    • Predator: The infrared perspective and the three laser dots that appear on Butters' head when he's in the forest are taken from the 1987 film Predator.
