  • Quotes

    • Randy: Just because somebody's gay, doesn't mean they molest children. Straight people do that too.

    • Mr. Grazier: Well, you know what I say about kids, they're all pink on the inside.

    • Big Gay Al: What if I promise not to be gay anymore? Pinky swear?

    • (When Father Maxi says he can change Big Gay Al)
      Man: That's what you said about Peterson, but then you ended up having sex with him.

    • Jimmy: You know, my mom says God has a plan for everybody. I guess I was plan B.

    • Father Maxi: I myself, went through a homosexual phase.

    • Mr. Grazier: Now, the first activity for this evening will be... naked pictures. I'm going to take some pictures of each of you naked, in case we need them, for later.
      Scouts: Aw.
      Mr. Grazier: Aw, what is this? If there's one thing I hate, it's a whining platoon! "We don't want to do pushups! We don't want to get up early! We don't want to have you take naked pictures of us!"
      Cartman: (to Kenny) Man, this guy sucks.
      Mr. Grazier: Now, fall in and strip down, Scouts!

    • Head Scoutmaster: Oh, Big Gay Al, it has recently come to our attention that you are gay.
      Big Gay Al: Well, stop the presses, did you figure that out all by yourselves, silly buns?

    • (the boys protest)
      Stan: What do we want?
      Boys: Gays in Scouts!
      Stan: When do we want it?
      Timmy: Timmy!

    • Cartman: Yeah, we're gonna use him to help raise money in our bake sale.
      Stan: Cartman, don't say "use him," you big silly goose.
      Randy: (to Stan) What did you say?!
      Stan: I just called Cartman a name. He's a, he's a silly goose.
      Stuart: Uh-huh.
      Randy: YOU DO NOT SAY "BIG SILLY GOOSE!" You call him an asshole like a normal kid!
      Stan: But Dad, I was just trying to --
      Stan: (to Cartman) Asshole.
      Randy: That's better!
      Cartman: (quietly) Don't call me an asshole, you son of a bitch.

    • Jimmy: You dirty motha-*bleep*!!!!

    • Jimmy: You know, sometimes people ask me, "Are you angry at God for making disabled people?" I say, "No, I think the world is better with P-President Bush."

    • Stan: Was your dad in Scouts, Cartman? Oh yeah, you don't have a dad. (everyone laughs but Cartman)
      Cartman: That's not funny! Jesus Christ!

    • Reporter: (on TV) In other news, the FBI has finally caught the child molester known as Mr. Slippyfist. This sick child molester was found with disturbing graphic photos of young boys naked, which we will show you now. Here's one. And here's another. Stuart: (notices picture) Kenny? Randy: Oh my god. Reporter: Here look at this one. Sick son of a bitch. Here's another one.

    • Cartman: (to Big Gay Al) Get your big gay ass off the couch and come be our scoutmaster again!

    • Man: Well how gay is he?
      Stuart: He's really, really gay.

    • Cartman: (on P.A. system) Attention, shoppers. Outside, we have cripple fight. Cripple fight outside!

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • When the newscaster announces Steven Spielberg's reaction to the discrimination, he introduces him as "...director of such films as Always and 1941". It is obviously meant as a joke to only reference these relatively unsuccessful films in light of Spielberg's many well-known blockbusters, such as Jaws, E.T., or Jurassic Park.

    • Jaws:

      When Steven Spielberg was shown, a poster in the background is seen called Grill. This is a parody of Jaws.

    • 69:

      69 is a slang term for a sexual position, and as such is a subtle reference joke being the Troop number of a Scoutmaster suspected of having sex with his Scouts.

    • Photoshop:

      The computer program Timmy uses is called "PhotoWiz," possibly a spoof of "Photoshop." With apologies to Adobe Systems.

    • They Live/Fight Sequence:

      The fight between Jimmy and Timmy is a direct copy of the fight between "Rowdy" Roddy Piper and Keith David in John Carpenter's 1988 film They Live, down to Jimmy saying "You dirty mother(beep)!"
