    Mrs. Garrison is mad because she was dumped and takes it out on the 4th grade class. She starts hanging out at a lesbian bar, but when the bar is in danger of closing, Mrs. Garrison and the other women go to extremes to make sure it is kept open. Will they win?



    Good episode, but it gets boring as it keeps going. It starts off strong, like the boys asking the Mexicans for help on their homework, but by the end I was a little bored, which hurts my grade some. It was overall a good episode, even though bits and pieces were boring. Final grade for this episode is going to be a low B from memoreless
  • Not the best.

    7.7
    "D-Yikes!" wasnt a very good episode. throughout the whole thing, I sat there saying, "Why? Why? Why can't you just let them have the bar!". It was like watching a soap oprea but it wasn't a soap oprea. It was more like an oprea. I do have to agree the parts with the kids homeowkr and the hispanics was quite funny. I just can't believe the women fought that hard just to save a bar. Why couldn't they just find another place? I also kept asking myslef that. Alot of the storyline didn't make much since. But oddly, I liked it!moreless
  • Admit this episode deserved more than the reviewers from this site gave it. Mr/Mrs Garrison turns into a lesbian and has to fight the persians that are trying to take ownership of their lesbian bar. - comical rip-off of the Movie 300.moreless

    9.3
    It actually makes me a little angry when episode like this that are funny, relevant, and absurd get a worse rating than that of an episode such as 'the snuke.'



    Maybe it's because I'm not american and don't really understand all the celeb rip-offs they do, but really this episode has everything: racial generalisations, shems, crazy garrison turning gay...AGAIN and a story that we can relate to slash have seen the movie of.



    D-Yikes is one of my favs in this season, and I think the south park writers are smarter than those of family guy, even if they don't generate as many laughss



    (ps - jumps the shark? what the?)moreless
  • 300 parody, whats with all the new parodys?

    9.1
    Once again, another great SouthPark episode for Season 11. this time it's a parody of the current film 300. With the stylish camera angles, dark clouds, the persians as enemies, voice over narration, and of course, the slow-motion & fast motion editing techniques. This is all taken straight from 300. The parody starts a little later in the episode, with the earlier part surrounding the boys quest to get their paper done, and Mrs. Garrison first discovering she's a lesbian.



    Other various quarks of this episode are the portrayal of the Mexicans, and the idea of lesbian sex being called "scissoring." this term will definitely catch on with fans. I immediately loved it, and knew i would repeat it as a common SouthParkian catch phrase. the Mexican portrayal was quite humorous. not too offensive, not overdone in any way, but just a nice little addition to the episode.



    Overall, this episode was great. Not sure how it will be viewed in years to come, like many SouthPark episodes, they really on current political issues, or other media sources (ie. the last two episodes, parodies of 24 and the Da Vinci Code). Anyways, I believe that in the future this will still be considered a humorous episode...Now...who wants to scissor?moreless
  • A fantastic episode.

    8.7
    In this season 11 episode. We join Mrs. Garrison wo is pissed about man judging them by there bodies. She sends her class on a essay about the "old man and the sea" on the weekend. The boys hire Mexicans to do it for them. Meanwhile, Mrs Garrison goes working out in a female gym, when she trains to reduce her "pissed" off attitude. She meets another woman who agrees with her and offers Janet (Mrs. Garrison) to a girl club called "Les Bos". Once arriving, Janet discovers its a lesbian bar. She freaks out until she realises her "lesbian attitude" and joins the club. Althrought, the Persians are planning to re-decorate the club to make it there own club. The lesbians fight over the Persians. In the end, the lesbians win and the persian leader is actually a female, who is lesbian.



    Great episode. Loved this one. Had a great and original plot idea and the humor was excellant.

      Butters: You have to be careful with scissors.

    • Narrator: Outside, Lesbo look-outs kept watch, ready to alert the others. The Lesbo leader sat nervously inside. Her plan to dress Mexicans as Persians to act as spies; perhaps it had failed. She looked around at her fellow Lesbos. They were tired. In order to keep her Lesbos awake, she had no choice. She would have to make coffee.

    • Stan: Dude, how are we going to read a book over the weekend, and write an essay!?
      Kyle: Our whole weekend is shot!
      Kenny: (Muffled) What the hell are we gonna do!?
      Cartman: You guys, you guys, relax. We don't have to read the book, or write the essay.
      Stan: We don't?
      Cartman: No. There's people you can hire to do these things.

    • Cartman: Have you lost your mind?
      Stan: Dude, we can't read a book in one weekend.
      Mrs. Garrison: Oh, well that's too bad dude! If you boys could keep your penises in your pants once in awhile you'd get more done!
      Butters: But teacher, my penis never slips out of my pants, except sometimes when I'm wearing pajamas!

    • Mrs. Garrison: You boys make me sick. You're well on your way to being men, who only think with their penises.

    • Mrs. Garrison: Kids, I need to tell you something that you might find shocking. I'm gay.
      Stan: Again?

    • Narrator: Finally, the Persians grew tired, and many wanted to go shopping for more designer sunglasses.

    • Mrs. Garrison: The way we kept those Persians from taking over our bar was les-tastic!

    • Mrs. Garrison: This isn't crazy, THIS IS LESBOS!

    • Mrs. Garrison: We are being discriminated against as lesbians!

      Allison: Janet you're crazy!

    • Mrs.Garrison: Everyone sit down and shut the f*** up! Goddamnit! Stupid ass man! They're all the same!
      Kyle: Oh God, here we go again.
      Mrs. Garrison: All men care about is sex! I spent two hours getting ready for that stupid date! And when the bastard checks out my body, he just says, "Hey, did you used to be a guy or somethin'?" I'm a woman now, so what's it matter?!

    • Mrs. Garrison: (to Stan) Did I say something to you, sugar tits? Did I ask you to speak?!?!

  • NOTES (1)

    • We learn in this episode that Mrs. Garrison's first name is now Janet, which he must have changed from Herbert after his sex-change operation.

  • ALLUSIONS (6)

    • The L Word:

      The lesbian love scenes are directed the same as the love scenes in the hit show, The L Word, as well as the title.

      In the show, woman are often faced with the idea of having lesbian sex for the first time, and the confusion of how lesbians can actually have sex. There is often an out lesbian that shows a straight woman that she doesn't need a man.

    • U-Haul:

      The moving truck building in which the Mexicans stand in front of, Moovit!, is an allusion to the popular moving truck rental business, U-Haul.

    • Mel Gibson:

      Mrs. Garrison calling Stan "sugartits" is a reference to Mel Gibson. A drunk Gibson made anti-Semitic remarks to a police officer and called the receptionist at the station a "sugartit."

    • 300:

      There are various references to the movie 300 in this episode. The over the top slow motion style is used many times in the film as it is here. The Persian leader is called Xerxes and is outrageously tall and has multiple facial piercings, just like the movie version. Also, Xerxes sits on top of a golden hummer, rather than the temple-like platform from the movie.

      Also the film is narrated, as is this episode and the number of lesbians fighting the Persians is 30, one digit off of 300.

      An example is:
      Persian:This is crazy!
      Ms.Garrison: This isn't crazy, THIS IS LES BOS!
      (Kicks Persian's nuts, falls in slow-mo)

    • Pirate Lingo:

      Mrs. Garrison: Scissor me Timbers!

      This is an allusion to the phrase Shiver Me Timbers, which haa been said by pirates.

    • Hiring Mexicans: The idea of the boys hiring Mexicans for their reports is a parody of how Mexicans are willing to do anything and for such low pay just to get a job.
