However, just as it seems they are about to get on with the second half of "Cartman's Mom Is A Dirty Slut," they do a 180 degree turn-around and reveal that for April Fool's Day they will be showing Terrance & Phillip in "Not Without My Anus."

    • Philip: Well, while we're waiting, why don't we search for treasure? Terrance: Oh good idea, let's search for treasure.

    • Phillip: The subway certainly is wonderful, Terrance. Terrance: It sure is. Let's look for treasure. Phillip: Yes. Let's look for treasure.

    • Phillip: Oh, hello, Scott. No hard feelings, right, old pal? Scott: There ARE hard feelings! This isn't over! I'm going ta see to it that you both pay for what you've done! And do you know why? Phillip: 'Cause you're a dick? Scott: No! Because I hate you! You guys think that fart jokes are so funny, but they're not! In fact, I wish you were both dead and had cancer! Phillip: Cancer?? Scott: Yes; in the head! Terrance: "Head cancer"??

    • Scott: Ladies and gentlemen, the case before you today is of a murderer. On the night in question, this monster entered the home of Dr. Jeffrey O'Dwyer and struck him repeatedly on the head with his hammer. That monster is sitting right over there, and his name is Terrance! (Terrance farts. Both he and Phillip laugh) Phillip: Oh, Terrance! You farted in court! Terrance: Yes, Phillip. I'm making a case for our defense.

    Notes (3)

    • The first episode that Mary Kay Bergman and Isaac Hayes don't voice over in. Isaac Hayes becomes a semi occasional performer after this.

    • This is a complete 30 minute Terrance and Phillip episode as a result, Kenny does not appear in this episode. Cartman makes a brief appearance at the beginning and Kyle and Stan can be seen on T.V. very briefly while Terrance and Phillip are watching it. This also marks the first episode where Kenny does not show up.

    • In an April Fool's joke, we were treated to this episode of Terrance and Phillip instead of resolution to the "who is Cartman's father question" that was on everyone's mind.

    Trivia (22)

    • Terrance and Phillip fart a total of 26 times in this episode. Not counting the uncountable number of farts that happen during the football game.

    • The Iraqi guys are all drawn like Canadians. But in later episodes they are drawn in regular South Park animation.

    • When Terrance and Phillip descide to watch some American television, a clip from Cartman's Mom is Still a Dirty Slut can be seen on the television.

    • This is the first episode of South Park to air without showing the usual credits of the city in the background with the South Park styled text, instead, it has closing movie styled credits with a different theme.

    • Visitor Sighting: An alien is seen behind an Iraqi guy, after Terrance finds his daughter.

    Allusions (5)

    • Celine Dion
      The mother of Terrance's daughter is Celine Dion, a Canadian singer. She won an Oscar for singing the theme song to the film Titanic.

    • The Canadian Football League: The Canadian football game we see is between the Ottawa Rough Riders and the a made up team named "Vancouver Roughriders". This is a parody of the Canadian Football League having two teams called the Roughriders until 1996. The Ottawa Rough Riders did not exist when this episode first aired because they disbanded in 1996.

    • Not Without My Daughter: The title of this episode is a parody of the 1991 film Not Without My Daughter.

    • Richard Nixon: During Terrance's murder trial, Phillip says, "My client, Terrance, is no more a murderer than you or me. He loves puppies and hates mean things." This is an allusion to Nixon's 1952 speech where he was asked to explain the $18,000 from supporters that he consumed for personal use. Instead of explaining his actions, he talked about his love for his dog, Checkers.

    • The Empire Strikes Back: When Scott confronts Saddam over his continued occupancy of Canada, the resulting exchange - "I changed my mind. Pray that I do not change it any more." / "This deal's getting worse all the time" - is an exact replica of the similar exchange between Darth Vader and Lando Calrissian in the 1980 film The Empire Strikes Back.
