Episode Summary

While the kids are playing dodgeball in Chef's gym class, Kyle gets a severe nosebleed. He is taken to the nurse's office, which is widely regarded as a horrific place by the students. Kyle discovers the reason: the nurse has a stillborn conjoined twin fetus attached to her head. Kyle's mother hears about it and decides to make the town more aware of the nurse's condition. During this crusade, South Park Elementary is invited to compete in the state dodgeball finals in Denver.moreless

Who was the Episode MVP ?

  • great

    Kyle gets a nosebleed playing dodge ball and is scared to see the nurse because of it. He is forced to and learns the nurse has a dead fetus on her face. Kyle tells his mom, who tries to help the nurse because she thinks the nurse feels like an outcast. Meanwhile the South Park elementary dodge ball team is headed to the finals; will they win?

    Good episode. The dodge ball plot interested me more than the nurse plot though. The nurse plot bored me for the most part. Still an enjoyable 22 minutes though, my overall grade is a C+/B- or so\, I think is fairmoreless
  • Awesome.

    This episode wasn't the best of the second season of the wonderful show of South Park. It wasn't very good. The two plots with dodgeball and the conjoined dead fetus thing wasn't very good. Also, I didn't think that it was necessary to have two plots. These old South Park episodes seem to be doing that. Maybe the creators were trying to find their style.

    The nurse of the South Park school has a condition that on her head is a dead fetus. The town tries to make a conjoined.. whatever it's called awareness month so people can be aware of her condition and not discriminate her. On the second plot is that the dodgeball team at South Park becomes world championship because of.. get this.. Pip. Yep.

    This episode wasn't very funny. It was just boring. Not as boring as the "Pip" episode but it was quite boring.moreless
  • Conjoined Fetus Lady

    Conjoined Fetus Lady is another of the colourful episodes of South Park that comntains crudeness, laughs, emotional parts and even more of Kenny Death trivia. If you enjoy fresh new South Park episodes then you will love this TV MATURE slice of S P treat.

    Starting off with a trip to the School Nurse by Stan (dreaded by all the children, as they think that the nurse is a scary monster)... Stan realises that the Nurse Gollum isn't as bad as she seems and even if she does have a baby on the side of her head she really is kind.

    :) Good episodemoreless
  • One of the worst of season 2.

    Ok, this episode was another average episode of South Park. Nothing special happend and the main plot sucked ass.

    But really, the humor in this episode saved it from total embarresement. It had great jokes, one liners and moments.

    Now, the main plot. This is what made the episode suck. The main plot was horribly written. They could have put it better by evolving the main plot but no. They had to give us this crap.

    On a side note, the subplot is what made the show interesting - The boys playing dodgeball. That's were most of the humour and action was and I feel horrible for it being replaced by another plot which sucked.

    I recommend this episode for the dodgeball scenes and the humour. Other then that, this episode wasn't that great.moreless
  • Well, who really expected her to have a fetus on her head?

    This episode lacked something that other Season 2 episodes had. But nonetheless, still a very quality episode. The funniest things about this episodes were Gerald's social fau pars at the table when Nurse Gollum was over for dinner and just the boys in general, mainly bagging Pip. But without a doubt, the funniest thing was the asian commentators and their making fun of Americans, "Good thing they can see the ball, with those big, round American eyes." or "I'll use my credit card", "Is the non-fat dairy creamer?". Hilarious. One of the better storylines of the series, but with a weak finish.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (10)

    • Visitor Sighting: Right when Chef's talking to Pip, after Kyle's dinner, a logo of a Tennis player has an alien head at the Denver school.

    • The kids take their schoolbus straight from Denver to Washington D.C. to China and come back in time for the end of "Conjoined Twin Myslexia Week." Ms. Crabtree is one amazing bus driver.

    • In the very beginning during Gym class, there appear to be no girls while Chef is talking to the class about dodgeball. In the next shot, we see Bebe and another girl.

    • When Pip is the only one left, the announcer says that all Chinese players are still out, but in order for Kyle to be in possession of the ball, he had to catch it therefore one Chinese player would be out.

    • Chef appears to double as a gym teacher, at least for this episode. Of course, he was also a football coach for the school in "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride".

    • When the boys return home as world champions, even the cow on the "Go Cows" banner is wearing a conjoined twin
      empathy hat.

    • The motto of conjoined twin myslexia week--found on the box of hats--is "let's stick together."

    • The Chinese sports announcers are reminiscent of the ones at the football game in "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride." They make endless tasteless jokes, one of them finally says, "You're going to get us in trouble again", and the other one has a comb-over, receding hairline-hiding hairstyle a la Marv Albert.

    • When Stan's mother calls Kyle's mother after Stan tries to cut his head open, Kyle's father is reading what appears to be a Catholic newspaper with a picture of Christ on it, yet Kyle's dad is Jewish.

    • When Kyle's mom has Mr. Mackey, Principal Victoria, and Nurse Gollum over for dinner, she serves pork. Although it's thought that Jews are not supposed to eat pork, many do, except for the strictly Orthodox sects.

  • QUOTES (5)

    • Short Announcer: Oh, and another American is down! It's number, uh… oh, I don't know; all Americans look alike!
      (Both announcers laugh hard.)

    • Kyle: (about the nurse) And when she moved up and down, the little fetus jiggled!
      All boys: Eww!
      Cartman: Did it talk?? The little fetus, did it talk??
      Kyle: No, dude! It looked dead!
      All boys: Eww!
      Stan: Was it wearing clothes??
      Kyle: (weirded out) Dude, where's she gonna get fetus clothes?
      Stan: Oh, yeah… Eww!
      All boys: Eww!

    • Tall Announcer: Hey, you wanna hear my impression of an American? (throws his voice to sound like he's American) "Hey! I really, really want that! That looks good!"
      (The announcers burst out laughing.)
      Short Announcer: Let me try, let me try! (throws his voice as well) "I'll use my credit card."
      (The announcers laugh again.)
      Short Announcer: (throwing voice again) "Do you have any non-dairy creamer?"
      (The announcers continue to laugh.)
      Tall Announcer: "Y'all come-a back now, ya hear?"
      (The announcers laugh so hard they fall back.)

    • Chinese Guy: Hey you stupid American! Throw ball! What the matter?! You got crepes in your ears?!

    • Cartman: I love you guys.
      [A long pause as Stan and Kyle stare at Cartman]
      Cartman: Ah, screw you guys.

  • NOTES (3)


    • The Last Starfighter:

      When Pip throws his final throw against the Chinese team, the way he spins, throws the ball, then slowly stops spinning, is reminiscent of the Death Blossom scene in The Last Starfighter.

    • Star Trek: First Contact:

      Cartman's phrase "So, Captain Ahab has to get his whale, huh?" is an almost direct quote from Star Trek: First Contact, which in turn is a reference to Herman Melville's novel Moby-Dick.

    • Moby Dick:

      Cartman's literary reference "Captain Ahab has to get his whale" is from Herman Melville's classic "Moby Dick."

    • The Monkees:

      The picture of conjoined twins that Kyle's mother shows to the boys from her book "Freaks A-Z" is actually a picture of Mickey Dolenz and Michael Nesmith from the band "The Monkees," who also had a tv show, also named The Monkees.

    • Lord of the Rings:

      Nurse Gollum's surname is the same as the creature from J.R.R. Tolkien's The Hobbit and The Lord of the Rings.

      Gollum is the misbegotten creature who refers to the "one ring" as his precious and often holds conversations with himself as Gollum (evil) and Smeagol (good).
