Trey Parker: (on Team America: World Police) The Marionettes are really small, so they're really hard to have sex with.
Trey Parker: Jerry Bruckheimer creates comedy, he just doesn't realize because he's a turd.

Trey Parker: I spend shockingly little time thinking about real-world stuff.
(When asked why they wait until the last minute to make an episode)

(When asked about his sexuality)
Trey Parker: Well... I'm a little gay.
(When asked why Kenny has to die all the time)
Trey Parker: Because he's poor.
Trey Parker: There is nothing we can't do. So it's just the fact that we're doing topics like that that other people, especially network TV, won't touch, that we're satirists.
Trey Parker: I would never kill somebody, unless they pissed me off.
Trey Parker: Hollywood views regular people as children, and they think they're the smart ones who need to tell the idiots out there how to be.
Trey Parker: Saying goodbye doesn't mean anything. It's the time we spent together that matters, not how we left it.
Trey Parker: We created a brand for ourselves, so that now people can't get mad at what we do, because then they're just making of themselves.
Trey Parker: We made this really dumb decision to put on the cover nothing from South Park but just a real- life photo of a piece of pooh dressed up like Mr. Hankey, and a lot of people didn't, they didn't even know what it was.
Trey Parker: You know, and it really doesn't have a lot to do with the movie. That's the trick to doing a good musical is that, if you take that music number out, there's less to the movie there. You would miss it.
Trey Parker: You start animating it and you get to Friday and you get to Saturday and you go, 'This is not funny, like we haven't figured something out, scrap it.'
Trey Parker: Talk about it, talk about it, and then I physically go write it and come up with the dialogue, and come up with the structure of the scene.
Trey Parker: So we're considering doing a new Christmas album, because there's been Christmas episodes since then, and maybe finally do the version of "The Most Offensive Song Ever" with lyrics in tact.
Trey Parker: It's not like we have a formula, but I think one of the reasons this show has survived is that it has a big heart at its center. Other cartoon shows have people crap on each other and make racist jokes. But I don't think people tune in for that. I just don't think a show lasts for 10 years without a heart.
Trey Parker: We're the guys who, if someone says you really shouldn't do an episode making fun of Scientologists, we say, 'Whatever.' Someone says, 'They might come try to burn your house down,' we say, 'We'll just get another one.'

Trey Parker: Instead of being crappy, we decided we better figure out how to actually make it good.
Trey Parker: Me and Matt love to argue, but in general our sense of humor is pretty much alike.
Trey Parker: The problem is we moved to LA...The only way to be punk rock in L.A. is to be a Republican.
Trey Parker:(on South Park) But the hard, the hard part that really goes into that is at the end of the day, we do have to come up with "what's our take on all this? What's our philosophy on this that's not just what everyone else is talking about?"
Trey Parker:(on South Park)...it's great- We have it, we're lucky enough that we've created a show where it's not about... a family, or a kid, it's about a town.
Trey Parker: We find just as many things to rip on the left as we do on the right. People on the far-left and the far-right are the same exact person to us.
Trey Parker: (on filming Team America: World Police) We tried to stay true to the Thunderbirds. We don't use any computers in this movie, it's all painfully real.
He's a Japanese culture lover
Trey Parker: You know that everyone thinks that in order to do South Park we must be wild, crazy, rock and roll stars. But the truth is we're just wholesome middle-American guys. We enjoy soda pop, baseball and beating up old people just as much as anybody

Trey Parker: Sean Penn's really the only one stupid enough to put anything down on paper.
Trey Parker: No, writing musicals is the hardest thing in the world. And it was really funny, because I remember when the South Park movie came out, there were some critics that said, 'Well it's obvious that in order to get it to be 90 minutes they filled some time with music.'
Trey Parker: My favorite musical? I don't. It changes all the time. I'm just a diehard, I'm totally old school, like I'll sit and watch, if they are re-doing Oklahoma in New York, I will be the first one there.
Trey Parker: It's this simple law, which every writer knows, of taking two opposites and putting them in a room together. I love anything with Cartman and Butters at the same time, it's great.
Trey Parker: It's funny because I think a lot of it is simply... We've never considered ourselves satirists, but because we're on Comedy Central and because we're South Park on Comedy Central, we can do any topic we want.
Trey Parker: It's been a fascinating thing because we didn't really know how to write when we started South Park at all. It's been like, we've just sort of grown up a bit and it's amazing to just see how, if you take Butters and Cartman and put them in any scene, it works.
Trey Parker: It was exactly the same on the South Park movie really too. There's lots of violence in that too, but it always came down to anything sexual... They don't care about anything else.
Trey Parker: In terms of the creative side of it, it's really been a thing where you come up with the funny stuff is usually at a bar or out talking to people or whatever.
Trey Parker: If we have a great idea, we'll go, 'Oh, this could be a cool movie.' Or really for us, it's more like, 'Oh, this is a really bad idea. Let's do this. This seems really stupid.'
Trey Parker: I would let my kids watch this stuff way before I'd let them watch something like Full House that I think would make them stupid.
Trey Parker: I think by now, after nine years of South Park and after this movie, I think just about everyone, or we're on their s**t list.
Trey Parker: I almost bumped into Alec Baldwin and then turned around and Paris Hilton was standing there. And I was like, 'Look, it's stupid spoiled whore.'
Trey Parker: Everything's idea based. We just promised ourselves we'd never make a movie for the sake of making a movie, which is why we never took a multi-picture deal or anything.
Trey Parker: Everything, the way that Matt and I have done stuff from the beginning is, whether there'll be different people involved in South Park or whatever, but it's always been, in terms of directing/producing, it's really been sort of a director/producer relationship in terms of that side of it.
Trey Parker: Careful?! Was my mother careful when she stabbed me in the heart with a coat hanger while I was still in womb?
Trey Parker: But let's spend an hour and a half of this meeting,' because this is Thursday, the show's going on the air Wednesday.
Trey Parker: But before the movie came out, he had only heard about it. And he didn't realize in writing the letter he was saying the things he says in the movie. He was like, 'I've been to Iraq and I'll take you there.' That's all he does in the movie. 'I've been to Iraq so I know everything.'
