    • Detective: So, you say you were robbed? Cartman: yes. A photograph. And I know who took it: His name is Kyle Brofoski. Detective: If it's a photo, what's the big deal? What don't you just print out another one? Cartman: It's a big deal, okay?! That picture is my propertah, and I want it back! Detective: Okay, what is the picture of? Cartman: Why-why does that matter? Detective: Well, how're we gonna find your picture, unless we know what it is? Cartman: Alright, it's a picture of me. Detective: Yes? Cartman: It's a picture of me, and um...what appears to be, a penis...in my mouth. Detective: You were sucking somebody's penis. Cartman: No! No, I was not! I was asleep and this person just put their penis in my mouth--without me knowing--and took the picture. Detective: I see. Cartman: Yes. Now, it may appear in the picture, that I'm actually looking at the camera lens and smiling--with the penis in my mouth--and giving a thumbs up. But I assure you, I was fast asleep. Detective: Well, we'd have to get a warrant first--approved by a grand jury. Cartman: I don't have time for that! We have school tomorrow, and I know that Kyle is going to show the picture to everybody, during show-and-tell! Detective: Well then, you're screwed.

    • Cartman: Where is it, you filthy Jew?! Kyle: Where's what? Cartman: You know goddamn well, what! Kyle: Let go of me! Stan: What the hell are you doing, Cartman? Cartman: I went home to alter the picture of me with Butters' penis in my mouth to look like Kyle, but it was gone! What did you do with my picture?! Kyle: Knock it off, I don't have your stupid picture. Cartman: Give it back, Kyle. Kyle: I don't have it! Cartman: I swear to God, Kyle, if you don't give it back right now, I'm gonna break your fucking Jew legs right here Kyle: Shut up. Cartman: You shut up! You're lying, and you two are covering up for him. You know what-you're just like Jews yourselves! Stan, you're a Jew, and Kenny, you're a Jew. You're all Jews! (Kyle lightly hits Cartman) Cartman: Ow! Ow! Owwww!!! (Cartman runs away, crying)

    • Butters: Hey, fellas! Cartman: Oh, oh, hey, Butters. I wasn't expecting you so soon. Butters: Yeah, I finished my chores, so I came over a little early. Hey, are you guys all sleeping over, too? Cartman: No, no, these guys were just leaving. Weren't you guys? Stan: C'mon, let's go. Kyle: Wait-wait, I can't let this happen. Butters? Butters: Yeah, Kyle? Kyle: Don't you think it's a little strange, that Cartman keeps asking you to stay over? Cartman: Kyle... Butters: What d'you mean? Kyle: I mean- Cartman: What he means, is that he's jealous, that you've taken his place as my new best friend. But grow up, Kyle, change is a part of life. Butters: Yeah. Grow up, Kyle. (Kyle sighs angrily; Him, Kenny and Stan leave) Butters: So, what do you wanna do first, Eric? You wanna play a game, or just chitchat for awhile? Cartman: Well, actually Butters, I think we'd better hit the hay pretty soon. Butters: But it's only 6:30. Cartman: Yeah, and I'm exhausted. If you're not sleepy yet, I have some more of that nighttime cold medicine that you can drink.

    • (Cartman entered the kitchen in tears) Mrs. Cartman: Eric, Poopsie, what's the matter? Cartman: I... don't... wanna go to school tomorrow! Mrs. Cartman: Sweetie, tell Mommy what happened. Cartman: Kyle... has a picture of me... and he's gonna show everyone during show and tell... and, and everyone's gonna laugh at me! Mrs. Cartman: Oh, now why would he do that? Cartman: Because he's jealous of how much smarter I am than him. So he's gonna show everyone the picture. Mrs. Cartman: What is the picture of, Eric? Cartman: Last time, when Butters stayed the night, I was being really nice to him, and I was gonna take a picture of him for his mom to have... Mrs. Cartman: Oh, that's nice. Cartman: But then, right when I took the picture, Butters got really hot, so he pulled his pajama bottoms down, and then I tripped and fell down and my mouth landed right on his penis, and then I thought of something funny so I smiled up at the camera and gave, like, a thumb's up, and then Kyle took the picture from me and he's gonna show it to everybody and make them think I'm gay! Mrs. Cartman: Oh, there, there, sweetie. It'll be okay. These things happen. Cartman: But, Mom, I've been trying to get the picture back, but he won't give it to me. Mrs. Cartman: It's okay, Eric. I'll have a talk with Kyle's mother. Cartman: You... you will?

    • Head Counselor: You both do understand that we're trying to save your souls from eternal life in Hell? Butters: Well, sure, I guess! Bradley: Only through Christ can we cleanse our souls. Head Counselor: And you do know the rule, which states that no impure or immoral images are allowed to be seen by the eye? Butters: Well, yeah. Sure! Bradley: So let's purify ourselves from everything that makes the body or soul unclean, Corinthians Chapter 7. Head Counselor: Then do you mind telling us why we found this 1979 Sears men's underwear catalogue in your room. Bradley: That's... that's mine. Head Counselor: You know this is strictly forbidden! Butters: I don't understand. What's wrong with underwear? Head Counselor: What's wrong? This is what makes you confused! Don't you get it? This is confusing you right now, isn't it? (The counselor got up from his desk to wave the pages of the catalogue in Butters' face) Butters: Yes, it's all very confusing! Head Counselor: This is just as much your fault, Butters. Bradley is your accountabilibuddy. That makes you accountabillibuddyable. Both of you boys' behavior is jeopardizing all of the work we're doing here to save these kids! (A gunshot is heard) Head Counselor: Oh... no. Right, for having contraband in your room, you will both do penance by writing scripture for the next four days.

    Allusions (5)

    • One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest: Butters' accountabilibuddy, Bradley, is similar to Billy Bibbit from the 1975 film, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, played by Brad Dourif.

    • But I'm a Cheerleader: The entire plot with Butters at 'Camp New Grace' is an allusion to the 1999 film, But I'm a Cheerleader -- in which a cheerleader is accused of being a lesbian and is sent to a similar rehabilitation center to "fix" her.

    • Ted Haggard: Pastor Phillips, the counselor who was "cured" of his confusion, may be an allusion to Ted Haggard, who went to counseling to make him heterosexual after a man outed him.

    • Adobe Photoshop: Cartman: (to Kyle) I'm going to go home and photoshop the picture so that it's your face with Butters' wiener in his mouth! Eric is referring to a popular image-editing program called Adobe Photoshop, which gives the user the ability to manipulate pictures with extraordinarily real results.

    • LIFE: When Cartman comes to find the picture, Stan, Kyle, and Kenny are all seen playing Living which is an allusion to the popular board game, Life. This game was also played by the Harrison's on Family Fun Night in All About The Mormons?.
