    Jimmy keeps having erections at school and is worried about performing in the school's talent show because of it. He goes on a journey to try and 'get laid', but will he be able to before the talent show?



    The first half was pretty good but when Jimmy tried to get the ho back it got kind of boring. The first half had a lot of laughs from me- Butters was funny, Cartman was, Officer Barbrady (particularly his "wait…" line)… the last half didn't really make me laugh, apart from the ending. But overall I did enjoy most of the episode, so my final grade is in the "B" range. Not awesome but not terriblemoreless

    what is this ? a whole episode of jimmy and his ere*tions ! i mean no character development,just jimmy,whom they use to many these days.and what happened to barbrady s voice ? a bad bad episode for the last episode of the first half of season nine. but there was some funny and crude jokes.like the stupidity of jimmy asking to put his thing up his date s thing.that was an instant classic.overall,bad try,they could have improved this episode heaps.i hope when you see this episode,you can see their big mistake with their character development and a dumb plot.this episode has its moments ,but more downers.good side 45%.bad side 49%,6% just plain stupid.a little,itsy,bisty,minutey,smally,recommended.moreless
  • It wasn't funny, and it wasn't entertaining.

    1.0
    What can I say about this episode? It wasn't any good, it wasn't funny. The whole story was awful and is in my opnion one of the worst episodes of South Park ever. I'm serious when I say this two, I've seen a lot of South Park episodes and this one has got to be close to being the worse and I think that it possibly is. I will say that there was one funny part, and that was when Butters was up on stage to do his act for the talent show. Overall, I would not recommend that anyone see this episode, it was that bad.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (9)

    • This is one of the few later episodes where Officer Barbrady plays a role.

    • If you listen, Officer Barbrady's voice in this episode sounds way different than it did in all other episodes.

    • It would seem kind of unusual that Butters would have to tell Jimmy what to do with his erection, since Jimmy seemed to know perfectly well what to do back in the opening scene Ep 616 "My Future Self 'n Me"==>
      Jimmy: Well, I did Ecstacy once. Me and my girlfriend took it and we stayed up all night having... sex.
      Kyle: ...Where did you have sex with her? Jimmy: In her... va-vagina.

      Response: That shows that Jimmy lied about having sex with his girlfriend, since his answer didn't make sense. But in this episode, he seems to be is deep trouble, so it would only be rational to go around and ask anybody, even butters, about his erection problems.

    • During the car chase scene, the pimp flips Jimmy off, but his finger ends up being censored. Craig(The Blue, hood-wearing kid) has flipped people off before, but his finger never got censored. Quite odd...

    • Jimmy said he spent all his money on the hooker, then how did he pay the taxi driver in cash?

    • During the shot of the whole class laughing you can see Wendy is on Clyde's right but when it zooms in on Jimmy she is on his immediate left and when it zooms in on Cartman she is on his immediate left instead.

    • After Mr.Macky writes drugs on the board he keeps a hold of the chalk. As he's walking towards Jimmy to hear his excuse for not writing on the board the chalk dissappears as the camera changes from the front of the classroom to the back. When he approaches the board it looks like he takes it out of his pocket but he never put it in there.

    • How does Cartman know what to tell Jimmy about his erection problems (Unless he saw the movie Hitch and it warped his fragile little mind.)?

    • There isn't a problem with Wendy's positioning. In the wide shot, Wendy has Jimmy to her right and in front of her, Token to her right and behind her, the blond boy to her immediate left, and Cartman to her left and in front of her. Clyde is in front of Jimmy and to his right. In the close up of Jimmy, Clyde is still in front of him and to the right, Token is behind Jimmy, and Wendy is to his left and behind him. In the close up of Cartman, Wendy is behind him and to his right, and the blond kid is behind him and to his left. It all works out.

  • QUOTES (18)

    • Waiter: Welcome to Book e de f*gge chini. Can I take your order please? Oh, Mr. Valmer, back again I see.
      Jimmy: (Whispers) Shut up jackass. I don't want her to know I was here with another girl.

    • Butters: (Singing) Loo-Loo- (stops singing) -loo- Oh no! (Wets his pants and runs off)
      Mrs. Garrison: Very good Butters! Short and sweet.

    • Nut Gobbler: I can't believe you chased me all this way. You, you really care about me.
      Jimmy: Not really. You're just a hooker, and I need to get laid. The talent show could be over any minute.
      Nut Gobbler: That's good enough for me.

    • Goth #1: (singing) No no no no no, I'm not gonna be in the talent show. Oh no no nono no. I'll never be in your faggy talent show.
      Mrs. Garrison: Okay, that was the Goth kids with "Talent Shows Are for Fags."
      Goth #1: That was killer. We showed them.
      Goth #2: Yeah, I hope we win.

    • Pimp: You got a problem, bitch?
      Jimmy: Yes, I do have a problem, as a matter of fact! I've spent all my money on this ho, and she's now my only shot at getting laid, and the talent show is only a couple of hours from being over.

    • Jimmy: I have a raging hard-on that just won't quit, and the talent show has already started.
      Nut Gobbler: You a cop?
      Jimmy: No. Actually, I'm a stand-up comic.

    • Jimmy: Butters, do you know what you're supposed to do when your penis gets hard?
      Butters: Well sure I do.
      Jimmy: Really?
      Butters: Yes, now sit down, Jimmy, we should have a little talk. You see, Jimmy, when a man's penis becomes hard, the man puts it into a lady. Into her "vagina." Then, the hard penis sneezes milk inside the lady's tummy, and after it's all done sneezin' milk, the penis stops bein' hard, and the man loses interest in the lady.

    • Mr. Mackey: (reading letter) Mr. Mackey, sometimes my parents hit me, and you are gay.

    • Cartman: What are you lookin' at? You're all a bunch of f(beep)kin' assholes. You know why? You don't have the guts to be what you wanna be. You need people like me. You need people like me so you can point your f(beep)kin' fingers, and say 'that's the bad guy.' So, what'll that make you? Good? You're not good. You just know how to hide, how to lie. Me, I don't have that problem. Me, I always tell the truth... even when I lie. So say goodnight to the bad guy. Come on. The last time you gonna see a bad guy like this again, let me tell you. Come on, make way for the bad guy. There's a bad guy comin' through; you better get outta his way!

    • Mr. Vulmer: Jimmy we know you've been having erections in class.
      Jimmy: WHAT!!! Who told you???
      Mr. Vulmer: Mr. Mackey.
      Jimmy: Oh Jesus!!!
      Mr. Vulmer: I know it's been giving you a hard time. Get it, Jim? A HARD TIME.

    • Jimmy: Hey Bertha.
      Bertha: Oh hey Jimmy, what's going on?
      Jimmy: Well Bertha I was wondering if I could put my penis in your vagina.
      Bertha: What? No way!
      Jimmy: But the talent show is tommorow!
      Bertha: (slaps Jimmy) Jerk!

    • Dr. Pal: Jimmy, as you get older your body goes through a lot of changes, certain hormones start to release as your whole reproductive system begins to awaken; and so if you like, we can take off our shirts and kiss...
      Jimmy: ...Come again?
      Dr. Pal: Whoa hey! Nothing! You see? See that sent you off on a different tangent; got you thinkin' a different way. That's what Dr. Pal is here to do! ...Unless of course you think we SHOULD take our shirts off and kiss?
      Jimmy: N...No I do NOT want to take off our shirts and kiss!
      Dr. Pal: Well then to hell with you kid; you can just deal with your problems on your own...(Walks out)

    • Butters: The hard penis sneezes milks into the lady's tummy.

    • Mr. Mackey: (reading letter) Mr. Mackey is gay. (he stops reading and the class laughs) Okay kids, that is not funny! M'kay?

    • Butters: Hey! Who's dropping bombs in there? How about a courtesy flush?!
      Cartman: Up yours, Butters!

    • Jimmy: W-wow Cartman, you're like a white Hitch.

    • Dr. Pal: Hey, I'm Dr. Pal. That's because I'm doctor but I'm also your pal. Are we cool?

    • Cartman: Hey, that's bullcrap! How come Jimmy doesn't have to do it?
      Mr. Mackey: Well, because, uh, Jimmy is pitching a tent right now.

  • NOTES (0)

  • ALLUSIONS (10)

    • Buca Di Beppo:

      The restaurant Buca De Fettucini refers to the chain Buca Di Beppo of which there are four in Colorado.

    • Election Day:

      The episode title is obviously a play on Election Day.

    • Cyrano De Bergerac:

      Cartman's coaching Jimmy through his date at the Italian restaurant is a literary device first seen in the balcony scene in "Cyrano De Bergerac," where Cyrano puts words in the mouth of the handsome but dim Christian as he woos Roxanne.

      This device was also seen in the eponymous 1987 Steve Martin film Roxanne, as well as an episode of "Will and Grace," where Will uses a headset to coach Jack and numerous other sitcoms.

    • Along Came Polly:

      When Jimmy enters the bathroom and pounds on the stalls, the first stall has a person in it says "It's occupied." When Jimmy pounds on the second stall, Cartman says "No room at the inn, Virgin Mary."

      This scene is very similar to the scene in the 2004 film Along Came Polly when Ben Stiller's character eats spicy foods, and immediatley goes to the bathroom, and pounds on the stall. But when he pounds on the stall, the person says "Occupied. I'm gonna be here all night dude."

    • Colfax Point:

      The narration and shots of Colfax Point are making fun of the HBO documentary series "Hookers."

    • Colfax Point History:

      When Jimmy goes to Colfax Point this is actually an infamous street.

      Colfax Avenue, in Denver, Colorado which is widely known (in Colorado at least) for prostitution and drugs. It also happens to be the same street that Casa Bonita is on, see the Casa Bonita episode.

    • Scarface:

      For his act in the talent show, Cartman selects readings from the 1983 film, Scarface.

    • An Officer and a Gentleman:

      When Jimmy saves Nut Gobbler, he picks her up and carries her to a hotel to the tune of "Up Where We Belong" while the other hookers applaud.

      This is a direct parody of the 1982 film An Officer and a Gentleman.

    • Saving Silverman:

      The part where Cartman is telling Jimmy what to say and do, is a reference to the 2001 movie Saving Silverman a.k.a. "Evil Woman" starring among others Jason Biggs and Amanda Peet.

    • Hitch:

      The part where Cartman was telling Jimmy what to say to his date during their dinner is a parody of the 2005 movie Hitch starring Will Smith. In the movie, Will teaches single men what to do and say to their dates.
