  • If there was a giant poster of Barbra Streisand replacing the Shanghai World Financial Center, people would think that she's attacking us. Actually, at least Shanghai. I'm an American, though. You get the point.. do you? Warning: Contains spoilers.

    Notes (4)

    • Matt and Trey purposely decided to deny Robert Smith any context to the dialogs he would be recording, as they believed It would turn out funnier that way

    • According to the South Park 5th Anniversary special Trey Parker and Matt Stone are big fans of The Cure.

    • After Barbra Streisand saw how her character was portrayed in this episode she criticized the show, saying it was bad for children as it promoted cynicism. Matt and Trey responded to this by insulting Barbra again as they used her face to scare people in the Halloween episode "SpookyFish".

    • When Cartman sees the helicopter, he claims it's aliens and covers his ass. A reference to "Cartman Gets an Anal Probe".

    Trivia (13)

    • Barbra asks who the boy is she saw on the news tonight yet the scene where this happens is during the day, so there is no way she could've seen Kyle tonight since that point of the day hasn't happened yet.

    • Live-action footage is used for the background when Chef is driving Maltin to Streisand's condo

    • A picture of Mr. Hankey can be seen on the newspaper that Mr. Garrison is sleeping under.

    • In the scene where Barbra Streisand lands her helicopter, Cartman shouts, "Oh no, Aliens!" and holds his butt; this references the episode where Cartman receives an anal probe from "Visitors".

    • The song that plays at the end when Robert Smith is walking away is called "Reminiscent of Love Song" by The Cure.
