  • "You know, I think that if parents would spend less time worrying about what their kids watch on TV and more time worrying about what's going on in their kids' lives, this world would be a much better place."

    Death comes to South Park to set the record straight when Stan's grandpa asks him to assist in his suicide when he turns 102. Meanwhile, Kyle's mother organizes the first of many protests against Terrance and Phillip, the hit Canadian TV show that relies on farts and swearing to get ratings. Stan attempts to find out whether assisted suicide is wrong while South Park parents sacrifice themselves for the well-being of their children. This episode is particularly clever since it deals with two separate controversial topics in a well-organized and concise manner, and also delivers some important messages, particularly about the content of TV, on the way.
