One of the lesbians says the name of the bar (Les Bos) is pronounced "luh-boh." However, les is actually pronounced "lay" in French.
Mrs. Garrison has no problem hiring Mexicans to spy on the Persians but in the episode It's Christmas in Canada she asks if they can 'get rid of all the Mexicans.'
The island of Lesbos and its inhabitants, the Lesbians, did actually assist in repelling the Persian armies when they tried to conquer Greece.
The lesbian bar Mrs. Garrison went to was called 'Les Bos'.
The building number of the club "13280" which, when converted to Leetspeak is LEZBO. 1=L 3=E 2=Z 8=B 0=O
Ms. Garrison is working out at Curves. A chain of womens fitness centers.
Mrs. Garrison: Hey Tracy, hey Kate.
Tracy: Hi Janet.
Mrs. Garrison: Lookin' hot, Linda. Wanna go somewhere and scissor later on?
Allison: Have you, never even thought of being with another woman?
Mrs. Garrison: Oh goodness no! Of course I haven't. I mean really, I don't even understand how two woman can make love. I mean unless they kinda just scissor or something.
(Cartman tells the Mexicans to do their homework)
Stan: Dude, that is awesome. I had no idea you could do that.
Cartman: Oh yeah, dude. Having Mexicans around totally kicks f***ing ass!
Allison: Hey, aren't you supposed to be teaching school right now?
Mrs. Garrison: The school hired a substitute to cover for me.
(scene changes to South Park Elementary where the kids are being taught math)
Mexican: And so, to find the sum of the two fractions, you must always first check for the lowest common denominator.
Other Mexicans: Si, yeah, si...
Stan: These guys are pretty good.
Kyle: Yeah, I think I'm actually learning something.
Narrator: And so it was that "Les Bos" was saved. The Persians had agreed to keep it a lesbian bar, for no dyke should be without cocktails.
Cartman: (in an angry tone) Why the hell would we pay you to write to your friends?
Mexican: We thought it was kinda strange.
Mrs. Garrison: Lesbos! Remember this day. Remember this fight!
Stan: (About Mrs. Garrison's new revelation) That's great!
Cartman: Let's hear it for teacher being a lesbian!
(The kids cheer)
Mrs. Garrison: Tee hee hee hee!
Mrs. Garrison: Allison and I talked, and really opened up to each other, then we scissored all night long.
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.
Woman: Who's the new girl?
Other Woman: Allison always goes for the butch ones.
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.
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!
Mayor McDaniels: You're a lesbian now?
Mrs. Garrison: Ow, you kicked me right in the pussy!
Mrs. Garrison: Oh yeah scissor! Scissor me, Alison!
Allison: Janet you're crazy!
Mrs. Garrison: Oh this is hot scissoring! Oh scissor me timbers!
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?!?!
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.
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.
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.
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."
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)
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.
