    Eric is handing out invitations to his birthday party at school. Mr. Garrison informs them all that there is a new student joining the class. Announcing to all that he is Damien, the son of Satan. Even as Damien demonstrates his demonic powers the children are more loathsome than impressed. Another okay episode here. There's a few funny parts but there a few problems as well. This episode was getting boring, mainly during the first half. It got a little better after that. As for humor, I laughed at Cartman not inviting Pip, Cartman trying to get Kyle, Stan, and Kenny trying to get for his birthday party, Chef punching Jesus, the battle between Jesus and Satan, Damien using Pip as a firework, Cartman is angry that he got Ants in the Pants (game that Kyle gave him), Stan talking about Nancy Kerrligation, and the last couple parts. Overall, another okay episode. 6/10moreless

    South Park Elementary gets a new student- son of Satan, Damien. Damien tries to scare the other kids with his powers but this does not work and the other kids treat him like crap. Will he get their respect? Meanwhile Satan and Jesus are going to have a fight, and the odds are on Satan to win. Good episode, one of my favorites from the first season. It had a relatively simply plot (for South Park standards) and although I did not laugh a lot it was still a pretty decent episode. Overall my final grade for this episode would fall somewhere in the "B" range. If it was funnier I'd give it an A probably.moreless
  • Go Jesus! Warning: Contains spoilers.

    Go Jesus! Jesus kicks the red butt of Satan in this hardcore episode.. or though he thinks. This episode was hilarious and doesn't seem to be offensive at all, although the sensitive people (who should go to prison for stupidity) probably are. This episode was hilarious and I enjoyed it.



    Like I said earlier, Satan makes a comeback and it for some reason happened to be in South Park. Now, Jesus has to go train while people are betting against him! This all starts when the Prince of Darkness's son comes to school and acts all crazy. This gets Chef's attention and then Jesus's.



    I enjoyed this episode.moreless

    8.0
    I only remember half of Damien and it probably got silly nearer to the end anyway. This comedy show features many different plots and this is one of the most original and fresh new plots out of the whole eleven seasons so far. Damien (the son of Satan - who stars in Bigger, Longer & Uncut) does the job perfectly and the script/dialogue/animation suit the original-season episode. Not one of my favourites, but one of the best and most entertaining out of the 12-14 (is it?) episodes in Season One of the hit parody show South Park. This contains references and seemingly similiar scenes to the episode with the carpet-licker teacher later on.

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (7)

    • This was the only South Park episode where Satan was portrayed as being outrightly evil; in other episodes he's a lot more effeminate and insecure.

    • During the Jesus/Satan fight, a visitor can be seen among the crowd.

    • continuously throughout the episode, whenever we see the 3rd grade classroom the numbers 666 appear in red with the rest of the numbers on the wall. The black board reads some calculations and mathematical formulas, amongst them 2x + 3y + 1 = 666

    • When Jesus is asked to forgive everyone, there is a rabbi cheering in the middle of the crowd.

    • The choir is singing in Latin, and the words they are singing are, "Rectus, Dominus." Loosely translated, this means, "Ass master." This is probably a testament to the fact that Satan, the father of Damien, is homosexual.

    • In the beginning Stan is told to buy Cartman a Green Mega-Man, but he buys him a blue one.

    • When Cartman is giving out the invitations in the beginning, he never gives one to Kenny.

  • QUOTES (27)

    • Stan: Holy Crap Dude, Satan's huge!
      Jimbo: Now that's is the guy who has been eating a lot of beef.

    • (Damien is having an appointment with Mr. Mackey, asking why the other kids don't like him just because he burns and kills them)
      Mr. Mackey: Wh-wh-what you need to do, uh, Damien is...is to be overly nice. See, n-no matter how mean the other kids are to you, just don't retaliate. Err, be passive, mmm'kay? That's what I taught the little British boy, Pip, an-and just look at how much the other children like him now!
      (scene changes to the playground, a group of kids are gathered around Pip)
      Clyde: I bet I could spit the most on him! (spits on his left shoulder
      Bebe: Oh, yeah? I bet I could spit in his hair! (spits in his right eye)
      Pip: Oh! Nice try! A little higher and you've got it!

    • Mr. Garrison: Children, children! Today is a very special day.
      Cartman: No, my birthday isn't until Saturday.
      Mr. Garrison: I'm not talking about your birthday, Eric!

    • Woman: What's happening?
      Chef: Come over here if you're scared women, I'll protect you. (Mr. Garrison clings onto Chef) Not you dammit!

    • Cartman: Do-do-do-do-do-do, here you go Kyle,Cartman hands Kyle an envelope. and here's yours Stan,Cartman hands Stan an envelope.
      Kyle: What is this Cartman?

      Cartman: That's right! Music plays because it's my birthday! B-b-b-b-birthday!Music ends
      Kyle: Kick ass dude! Cartman's mom throws the best birthday parties EVER!
      Cartman: (smiles) That's right!
      Stan: Yeah, if my mom can cook like Cartman's mom, I'd be a big fatass too!
      Cartman: That's righ- HEY!!!

    • (Jesus went outside, leaving the bar when the people changed there vote from Jesus to Satan and saw Stan, Cartman, Kyle, and Kenny)
      Stan: Hey Jesus!
      Jesus: What are you doing out so late kids?
      Kyle: We have to find Red Megaman and Green Megaman for Cartman's party.
      Jesus: Oh. Kids, you believe I can beat Satan right?
      Stan: Sure dude, you're the son of God.
      Kyle: Yeah. You're not having any doubts are you?
      Jesus: N-No no! But could you help me train a little?

    • (recess attendant blows the whistle)
      Recess Attendant: 5 minutes till recess is over you little bastards!

    • (boxers always drink raw eggs while getting in shape)
      Cartman: You guys, shouldn't you be out shopping for my birthday present?
      Kyle: Here Jesus, drink these raw eggs.
      Jesus: No way dude!
      Chef: I-I-I cant! I can't hit Jesus Christ! My mother will never speak to me again!
      Stan: But you're his fighting partner Chef!
      Kyle: Yeah! You have to hit him!
      Jesus: Satan must be defeated Chef! Please help me train.
      Chef: Ok, but I'm just gonna tap you alright?
      Jesus: Give it your best shot! (Chef punches Jesus on the face) Oh!
      Chef: Oh god in heaven! What have I done?
      Jesus: Anybody got the number of that truck?
      (Jesus faints)

    • (Satan just intimidated Jesus and the crowd at the fight's weigh-in)
      Jimbo: (looking at his fight betting ticket) Well, I think I…I think I left the oven on..
      Mr Garrison: I think I left your oven on too!

    • TV Commercial Narrator: The final battle between good and evil and it's only on Pay Per View!

    • Jesus: Thou must take me to the seedling of Satan so that I may confirm the truth.

    • Mr. Mackey: Now why do you think the children like you?
      Damien: Because… I'm the son of the Devil.
      Mr. Mackey: Mmkay, now there's a start. Why else?
      Damien: Because I… burn them and kill them?

    • Jesus: You're all a bunch of Judases!

    • (After seeing Jesus in the schoolyard.)
      Priest: Look, it's that guy from the public access show!

    • Pip: Oh Eric, I didn't get an invitation.
      Cartman: Oh, really?! Gosh! Where could I have put Pip's invitation? Let's see, Pip's invitation, Pip's invitation… Oh! I remember! I shoved it up my ass! Yes, that's right! I wrote it out, put it in an envelope, sealed it, and then shoved it right up my ass, forever ruining any chance you had of coming to my birthday party! Sorry, Pip ol' chap!

    • Pip: Oh, good day Damien, my name is Phillip, but everyone calls me Pip because they hate me.
      Damien: Then I will call you Pip.
      Pip: Right-o.

    • Cartman: Wendy, you are to get me the Yellow Mega Man. Which was supposed to be a gift given by Kenny, but Kenny has been turned into a duckbill platypus.

    • Mr. Garrison: Holy poop on a stick!

    • Cartman: And Kyle got me red Mega…(opens gift) Ants in the Pants? Ants in the Pants? (angrily) ANTS IN THE PANTS!?
      Kyle: It's a game, dude. It's really fun!
      Cartman: You son of a bitch! (leaps on Kyle) You were supposed to get me the Red Megaman! Now I can't make Ultra Mega Megaman! You dirty cheap ass piece of crap!
      Kyle: They were all out of them, dude!
      Cartman: I hate you! I want you to die! (Kyle screams) That's it! Party is over! Everybody go home! (turns party switch off)

    • Stan: Hey Cartman, how come the birthday invitation you gave me says "Green Megaman."
      Kyle: Yeah, mine says "Red Megaman."
      Cartman: Right, that's what your supposed to get me for my birthday.
      Stan: DUDE!?!?! You're not supposed to tell people what to give you for your birthday!
      Kyle: Yeah, that's weak.
      Cartman: Look it's very simple guys. "Green Megaman" goes with "Red Megaman" and "Yellow Megaman" to make the "Ultra Mega Megaman." You have to have all 3 or it doesn't work, see?
      Stan: Up yours Cartman, I'll get you whatever the hell I want.
      Cartman: Ohh!!! so maybe you don't want to have any of my moms Cake, Pie, and Ice cream then.
      Stan: Oh "Gre..Green Megaman" it is.
      Cartman: Now as you can see Kenny, you are to get me "Yellow Megaman," that's because the "Yellow Megaman" is the cheapest one and I know how poor your family is.
      (Damien walks to table)
      Stan: Hey!?!?! what do you think you're doing new kid?
      Cartman: Yeah, you can't sit with us weirdo.
      Damien: Infidel's!!!! I will turn you all into "Beasts of Burden"!
      Kyle: You can't sit with us new kid, go find another table!
      (Damien goes and sits with Pip)
      Cartman: (sighs) Anyway Kenny, "Yellow Megaman" is only $8.95, so maybe your mom can put it on layaway and make payments in a year, or two.
      (Stan, Kyle, and Cartman laugh. Kenny punches Cartman)
      Cartman: AYYY!!!!

    • Damien: I'm sorry that I ruined your playground, and turned your friend in to a duck-billed platypuss. I didn't have a choice! I was doing my father's bidding.
      Cartman: (Farts) Oh, Sorry, new kid. I didn't mean to fart on you, I didn't have a choice!
      Stan: Eww, new kid, you smell like a fart.
      Kyle: Yeah, now we're gonna call you fart boy from now on.
      (Damien goes over to Pip)
      Stan: Goodbye, fart boy.
      Kyle: See ya.
      Pip: Well, how'd it go?
      Damien: Those boys farted on me, and called me---
      Pip: Fart boy? Oh good! Perhaps they wont call me that anymore!

    • Kenny: (as a duck-billed platapus) Quack Quack.

    • Cartman: Sorry, Damien, I didn't mean to fart on you.
      Stan: Geesh, new kid, you smell like a fart.
      Kyle: They should call you "Fartboy" from now on.
      Pip: Now they can stop calling me that!

    • Mr. Garrison: Now Damien, where are you from?
      Damien: The seventh layer of Hell.
      Mr. Garrison: That's nice. My mother was also born in Alabama.

    • Cartman: Oh, here comes the unholy butthole now. Ay! Thanks for burning everything down ya little bitch!

    • TV Announcer: The final battle between good and evil? And it's only on pay-per-view! Jesus vs. Satan, live from the South Park forum. Call now to order, only $49.95!

    • Damien: Bring me Jesus! My wrath will continue until I speak to Jesus!
      Boys: Jesus?
      Studio Guy: 10 minutes to air, Jesus.
      Jesus: Thanks, Roland. Blessed art thou.

  • NOTES (6)

  • ALLUSIONS (6)

    • Monty Python and the Holy Grail:

      When Satan threatens Jesus by saying "I'm going to smash your face into little bits", it's a reference to the character Tim the Enchanter from Monty Python and the Holy Grail, who used almost the exact same description for what the Rabbit of Caerbannog does to its victims.

    • Fiveman:
      The Megaman figures' helmet designs bear a strong resemblance to the characters in the Japanese series Chikyuu Sentai Fiveman.

    • Current Event/Nancy Kerrigan:

      Stan gives a long motivational speech to Jesus about Nancy Kerrigan only to realize that she did not win a gold medal and so ditched the speech.

      Kerrigan of course was a figure skater who was attacked in 1994 by Shane Stant who was hired by competitor Tonya Harding's husband Jeff Gillooly. Kerrigan had to withdraw from the Olympics that year due to her injury and Harding won. That infamous incident was a sports scandal as is Satan throwing the fight.

    • Star Trek: First Contact:
      In the 1996 film Star Trek: First Contact, the following dialogue occurs between Commander Riker, from the future, and reluctant hero Zephram Cochrane, a historical icon: "Somebody once said, 'Don't try to be a great man; just be a man.'" "Who said that?" "You did...10 years from now." This dialogue occurs almost word-for-word between Stan and Jesus when Jesus is losing the boxing match.

    • Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers:
      The Mega Man toys wanted by Cartman bear a strong resemblance to the Zords from "Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers as to how each robot can combine together to create a robot that has 10 times the power of the individual robots.

    • The Omen:
      Damien is obviously the son of Satan (The Anti-Christ). The choir singing is a reference to The Omen trilogy of films (1976, 1978 & 1981) about Damien and their attempts to kill him.
