  • Episode Description
  • The boys start a small scam where they steal money left by the "tooth fairy" for other children. The operation becomes too conspicuous and unprofitable in South Park, so they try a rich Denver suburb. They find that a powerful syndicate already exists there, run by a kid named Loogie. The boys start working for him, but Cartman wants to make his own big score, without earning for Loogie.

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (22)

    • Cartman: You guys, you guys! Oh my god, seriously, you guys! Stan: What the hell's wrong with Cartman? Kyle: He's fat and stupid.

    • Kyle: But you know, I've learned something today. You see, the basis of all reasoning is the mind's awareness of itself. What we think, the external objects we perceive, are all like actors that come on and off stage. But our consciousness, the stage itself, is always present to us. Cartman: Tits.

    • Mr. Foley: I'm going to find out who the boss is, and when I do, I'm going to bust his ass and everyone's ass who helped hide his ass!

    • Loogie: They're what!? They're not going to pay me? Who the hell do they think they are? I want those South Park kids dead! I want their families dead! I want their houses burnt to the ground!

    • Chef: Well whatever you're doing, just remember this: Having money may seem fun but……Oh never mind.

    Notes (5)

    • The music playing behind Kyle when things start to trip out towards the end after he realizes his reality is "Pork Soda" by Primus and "Welcome To This World" by Primus, the band who does the show's theme. Both songs are off their 1994 album Pork Soda.

    • This is the first time since the South Park movie that we see Kenny not in his parka (we can not see his face, however...).

    • According to Matt and Trey on the commentary for this episode on the DVD, Timmy was a huge fight with Comedy Central standards, but he eventually was let in. Two weeks later, "Timmy 2000" aired with another fight, except after this one, Timmy became hugely popular, leading Comedy Central to tell standards to issue no Timmy complaints so they can sell more merchandise.

    • When Loogie is explaining how the tooth trade works, scenes of various kids are shown putting teeth under pillows, taping notes to doors, and collecting money. One of the kids collecting money is Timmy, wheelchair and all.

    • This is Timmy's first appearance.

    Trivia (4)

    • The actual answer to the algebraic equation the Chicken/Squirrel is trying to solve is: X = 8 - Y

    • The half chicken/half squirrel does not understand algebra, as its working was totally off (2x-y=y-3 does not equal 2x=-3).

    • In this episode we learn that Kyle believes in Peter Pan.

    • The head of the "half chicken/half squirrel" is actually the head of a rooster.

    Allusions (8)

    • Kyle's Books: The books that Kyle reads in this episode are: "Space-Time and Quantum Theory", "Taoism and Zen Philosophy" and "Descartes". (Rene Descartes was a French philosopher and mathematician.):

    • Welcome To This World: The songs used during Kyle's discorporation is a mix of "Welcome To This World" and the title track from Primus' fourth album Pork Soda.

    • Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman: There are stickers on the rich kid's window that are referred to as Mega Man stickers, although when the boys try to break into his bedroom to plant a tooth they appear to have helmet designs of the Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman.

    • The Godffather: Loogie is clearly based on Marlon Brando's character, Vito Corleone in The Godfather movies.

    • Pink Floyd The Wall: When Kyle alternates reality and changes between shapes such as a donkey and cheese, is a reference to the 1982 Pink Floyd movie, The Wall, because it containes a scene in which a main character Pink changes form in a very similar way.
