When Cartman calls to go on Maury Povich, he says that he has balls on his chin, too, and that he is out of control. But when she was to tell Maury or whoever about it, wouldn't it have surfaced that he had the balls on his chin as well?
At the start of the episode where the boys were watching TV, Butters is wearing Kenny's coat. In the next scene, watch very carefully as he takes off the coat and you'll see for a split second the gloves were on and then they were off as he throws the coat away. Surly the gloves should have stayed on!
Cartman: Whatever, I'll crap in Maury's pants.
Cartman: I slaughtered five baby seals with my bare hands. Whatever, I'll do what I want!
Officer: Now I'm not telling you people that your union doesn't matter. I'm just telling you that you're not really…people.
Incredibly Black Obese Man: Excuse me, I'm not Incredibly Obese Black man, I'm Incredibly Black Obese Man.
Freaks: Freaks of the world unite!
Butters: I promise I'll never go on TV with balls on my chin again.
Liane Cartman: But you're not out of control muffin. You're my perfect little gumdrop.
Cartman: Once again Butters is trying to screw us over. That asshole!
Stan: C'mon guys, if Butters won't even put his balls on his chin for us, I guess we know where we stand.
Butters: But why does it have to be me?
Stan: It has to be you Butters, think about it!
Kyle: How are we gonna get the balls put on Butters' chin?
Butters: Yea! How are we gonna get the.....wait, Butters' chin?
Butters: But that's me! I'm Butters!
Stan: We know, you're the one doing it Butters. Who'd you think we were talking about?
Commentator: Do you or someone you know have a disfigurement or disability that we can exploit on the Maury Povich Show? If so, call 1-555-HEY-MAURY!
Maury Povich: Now could you tell us how miserable your life is?
Butters: I should be able to be you guys' friend without wearing Kenny's old coat!
Stan: You should be quiet now Kenny, the Maury Povich show is on.
Butter: Oh all right then.
Commentator Today on the Maury Povich show, these poor unfortunate people all have horrible disfigurements, and you won't believe how we exploit them for your amusement!
Man with Foot on Head: Yeah, Lobster Boy used to make appearances on all the talk shows. He was one of the most popular disfigured people on TV.
Disfigured Country Singer: But then we all found out that Lobster Boy wasn't a real freak at all. He was just an actual lobster.
Maury Povich: Ms. Cartman, what does your son like to do?
Liane: Ooh, he loves playing with his Clyde Frog and Wellington Bear.
Cartman: [whispering] Mom, we're pretending, remember? Sex and drugs.
Liane: [to Maury] Oh, I mean sex and drugs.
Vanity: Oh, whatever. You ain't tough, ho! I roam with gangs!
Cartman: Oh yeah? I roam with 12 gangs! And we only commit hate crimes! Whatever! I'll do what I want!
Cartman: (in a slutty outfit; on video) Maury, I am out of control! Yeah, I use drugs. I can do what I want, bitch! Yeah, I have sex, and I don't use protection! It's my hot body; I'll do what I want! I don't go to school and I kill people! Whatever! I'll do what I want!
Maury Povich: Vanessa, what does Vanity say to you when you tell her to do her homework?
Vanessa: [crying] She says she hates me. She, she calls me "retard". And, she says my cooch is all dried up and nobody wants it.
Vanity: Whatever. I helped in a drive-by shooting.
Cartman: [in slutty outfit] Whatever. I digitally put Jabba the Hutt back into the original Star Wars movie! I'll do what I want!
Maury Povich: Wow, that is out of control!
Maury Povich: What names do they call you at school?
Butters: [with balls on chin] Well, uh, I guess they call me uh, Chinball Boy, and uh, Ballchin Boy, and when I, when I'm walkin' they'll say, "Hey, there goes Chinballs!"
Vanity: Wha'ever! Maury, my mom don't know shit! You could ask her! I ask her all my homies that they be down wit it. You know, it's all good shit.
Man with Terrible Skin Condition: [to Butters] We're you family too, Napoleon. We're like you. When we look at you we don't even see the testicles on your chin. We see the testicles in your heart.
Maury Povich: [on TV] Our next guest suffers from a rare birth defect which caused his testicles and scrotum to grow from his chin.
Cartman: Testicles and scrotum! [laughs]
Trey Parker & Matt Stone said a real man with no face who went on The Maury Povich Show tried to sue them because they used a character in this episode that had no face (who was based off him). However, no legal action was taken.
Mr. & Mrs. Thompson (from episode 5x10 "How To Eat With Your Butt") makes a cameo appearance during the "video sabotage."
Nurse Gollum from the episode "Cojoined Fetus Lady" makes a cameo appearance in this episode.
International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union: The ad presented by the freaks during the video sabotage, including the "Look For the True Freak Label" song, is a reference to a real advertisement for the International Ladies' Garment Workers' Union that aired during the mid-to-late 1970s. In the ad, a man is saying that too many people are buying imported clothes, thus costing union members their jobs, similar to the freaks losing their jobs on talk shows. The ad then goes to a single union member singing "Look For the Union Label" eventually being joined by other union members who sing along. In fact, many of the lines in the "Look For the True Freak Label" are the same as in the "Look for the Union Label" song.
The Thing With Two Heads: Among the freaks seen during Butter's "True Freak Label" song is a man who has two heads, one white and one black. This is most likely a reference to the film "The Thing With Two Heads", wherein a white bigot's head is transplanted onto the body of a black man.
"I digitally put Jaba the Hutt back into the original Star Wars movie. I'll do what I want!"
This is an allusion to George Lucas adding a scene with Jaba into the 1997 re-release of Star Wars (though he was not originally in the movie.)
The big faced red headed 'freak' looks like Rocky Dennis from the 1985 film Mask starring Cher and Eric Stoltz.
Alice's Adventures Underground:
One of the freaks (the girl without half her torso) resembles one of Lewis Carroll's original illustrations for his story "Alice's Adventures Underground," that would later become Alice in Wonderland. The illustration in question shows Alice after eating part of the mushroom.
The Bad Seed:
When Cartman is convincing his mom to take him on the Maury Povich show, he repeats something similar to "I have the prettiest mom, the nicest mom," over and over.
This is a quote from The Bad Seed, a 1956 film whose main subject is a murderous little girl who says these same lines to her mother throughout the film.
John Merrick/The Elephant Man:
From the 1980 film of the same name, The Elephant Man, makes an appearance during the Freakout rally.
Vanity's line, "You ain't bad. You ain't nothing," most likely comes from Michael Jackson's "Bad" (full version).
In the full version video, Jackson plays Darryl, a hoodlum who gets straightened out after he goes to private school. Darryl goes home on a break and sees his hoodlum friends. They try to convince him to become "bad" again and Darryl doesn't want to. They keep pressuring him, and he yells, "You ain't bad, you ain't nothing".
Cartman: I ran for congress and won. Then I had sex with an intern, killed her, and hid her body. What-eva! I'll do what I want!
This is a reference to congressman Gary Condit, who dated an intern named Chandra Levy. Chandra disappeared and was later found dead. Gary Condit was the prime suspect.
The man who says "Sir, our ratings have just started to plummet," is wearing a blue shirt and looking through the same device that Mr. Spock looked through in episodes of Star Trek: The Original Series.
