  • Quotes (19)

    • Blaine: Damn you, Super Best Friends! Jesus: Your magic is no match for our powers combined, Blaine! Blaine: (gets in a rocket) Then I guess you win this time, Super Best Fools! But I'll be back! (launches the rocket and flies in the sky) Jesus: Damnit! Buddha: It's alright. Everything is as it should be. Jesus: Oh, shut up, Buddha!

    • Kyle: (whispering) Cartman. Cartman, wake up. Cartman. Cartman: (wakes up abruptly, knocking Kyle off his bed) No, Paula Poundstone! Leave me alone! Uh! Uh? Kyle: It's just me. Cartman: (Cartman realizes he's at the camp with Kyle and sighs) Brother Kyle? Why do you disturb my rest?

    • Mohamed: Jesus, come look at this. (Jesus, Stan, and the Super Best Friends move up to a monitor) After your distress call, we entered David Blaine in the super best friends' computer. Sea-Man: (operating the monitor) Many interesting things showed up. He was raised in New York city by a decent family, but a freak washing-machine accident at the age of 12 made him learn the ways of the black arts. Buddha: That's right, Semen. (everyone laughs except for Sea-Man) Sea-Man: (feeling insulted) Sea Man! Buddha: Uh, that's what I said. Semen. (everyone laughs again) Sea-Man: Stop it!

    • Jesus: Yea, take hold of my robe, Stanley, and do not open your eyes. Stan: (closes his eyes) I am ready. (scene changes to Jesus and Stan on an airplane, Stan is still holding on to Jesus and closing his eyes) Jesus: Are you still keeping your eyes closed? Stan: Yeah. Jesus: Good. Want some peanuts?

    • (Stan asking Jesus for help with defeating Blaine) Jesus: The miracle I'm most famous for is turning water into wine. Stan: Can you do it again? Jesus: Very well. I shall perform the miracle. Behold, here you can see ordinary water, clear, clean. Okay now turn around. (Stan surprised) Turn around. (Stan turns around and Jesus replaces the jug of water on the table with a jug of wine) It is now wine! Stan: That's it? That's how you did that trick? Jesus: Uh, well, yeah. Stan: That trick sucks Jesus. Jesus: Oh, I guess it worked a little better on people 2,000 years ago.

    Notes (5)

    • Technically, "they" never killed Kenny. Kenny killed himself. From another point of view, the church of Blainetology is still responsible

    • Even though he is later censored in episodes 10-3 and 10-4 "Cartoon Wars," the Muslim prophet Mohammed is shown as a member of the Super Best Friends.

    • This is the second time you see Kenny without his hood on.

    • When the other Superbest friends mispronounce Sea-Man's name, it appears in the script as "Semen".

    • The White House residents that appear briefly in this episode are the characters from the short-lived series created by Trey Parker and Matt Stone called That's My Bush.

    Trivia (9)

    • This is the only episode in season 5 where the line "Oh my god, they killed Kenny!" Followed by "You Bastards!" is said in its original fashion. Having Stan say the first line then Kyle say the next. Although it was repeated over and over afterwards in this episode.

    • If Jesus and his super best friends flew up in the sky at the end of the episode, how come he couldn't fly with Stan while they were going to the Hall of Super Best Friends? Instead they were on a plane?

    • When everyone is in Washington, Jesus instructs the Mormon leader to freeze the water to stop the suicides. In the next shot of the water, it's liquid again.

    • After Kyle was put in the bubble, he called Cartman an asshole, to which Cartman said "At least I'm not the one in the plastic bubble!" Clearly, the bubble couldn't have been made of plastic or else it would have been so much simpler for Kyle to get out. Odds are it was made of glass.

    • How can your hair grow back like Butters' did in one day? How did Stan know it was Kenny who drowned?

    • Abraham Lincoln's Assassination: Moses suggesting to build a giant concrete John Wilkes Booth references this as it was John Wilkes Booth that killed president Abraham Lincoln.

    • Branch Davidian Cult: The building in which the Blaine-tologists reside is the same building that eventually became the deathground in Waco, Texas for David Koresh and his Branch Davidian cult.

    • Tron: Moses as an analyst for the Super Best Friends is a reference to Master Control Program (MCP) from the movie Tron (1982).

    • Captain America: While it probably had nothing to do with the creation of this episode, issue #222 of the Captain America comic also featured someone fighting the Lincoln Monument statue, in this case Captain America. Click 'More Info' to see the cover.

    • That's My Bush: When George Bush was talking to Karl, a guy walks in and says this line from Trey and Matt's other show That's My Bush.
