Episode Summary

Picking up from the previous episode, Cartman's evangelical mission has grown popular with the children of South Park. He plans to build a new church, and his congregation builds. He gets a call from Kenny, who is actually OK after riding underneath the bus all the way to Mexico. Cartman believes this is a message from Hell, but the real story down there is about Satan's torrid night in Saddam's hotel room. Meanwhile on the surface, more divine counsel is given by Jesus, who appears at Cartman's now-profitable church.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (6)

    • When Cartman says "no, I cant be cheated out of my ten million dollars again" the cash box is to his right. And after Kyle says "serves you right, Cartman", the cash box disappears.

    • When Sister Anne brought Jesus to talk to the kids at Cartman's church, one of the unknown boys has a voice that sounded exactly like Butters' voice. However, Butters was present and did speak a few seconds later before the kids left the church.

    • When Ms. Cartman convinces Eric, Stan, and Kyle into some fun as a distraction from making the church, it was happening during the day. However, when Ms. Cartman goes to her kitchen telling the other parents that the plan didn't work, you can see the window showing it as nighttime.

    • Listen Carefully: When the boys enter Cartman's house, the "Monkey Claw" speech from "Terrance and Philip: Not Without My Anus" can be heard coming from the television.

    • Once again, Cartman's plan to make $10,000,000 fails.

    • Mormonism teaches that only the truly wicked go to Hell; everyone else winds up in one of the three levels of Heaven. Thus, if "Mormon is the correct answer," there shouldn't be anywhere near eight thousand people arriving in Hell on a daily basis.

  • QUOTES (21)

    • God: (to Satan) If you're not sexually attracted to someone, then you're not ever going to be. But Saddam isn't right for you either, he's the other extreme. You should try spending some time alone, find the middle ground. That's what I do, because I'm a Buddhist.

    • Satan: I just don't know which one to pick.
      God: Now you've become dependent on relationships.

    • Satan: I haven't talked to God in over 5000 years!

    • Satan: You're back!
      Chris: Where was I going to go? Detroit?

    • Cartman: We are saving your daughter from the crutches of Hell!

    • Cartman: It is the afterlife we have concerned ourselves with.

    • Satan: I just came here because I needed closure!

    • Satan: (finishing his explanation of his problem to God) … and now Chris and Saddam just keep killing each other over and over, and I don't know which one to pick.
      God: (pause) Jesus, what the hell happened to you?
      Satan: Huh?
      God: You got kicked outta here for being a head-strong rebel, and now you're a whiny little bitch.

    • Cartman: Friends, I have to tell you that last night, I received a phone call from beyond the grave! It was our departed friend Kenny...calling from the depths of hell. And he described what hell is like in horrid detail. He said that in hell, the smell is awful...he said that in hell, everyone speaks Spanish. (crowd gasps) He said that there is water in hell, but if you drink it, you pee blood out your ass for seven hours! And perhaps worst of all, in hell there are dozens and dozens of little trinket stores; but they all have the same little trinkets in them!

    • Mormon: We're going to do a play about how alcohol can ruin family life.

    • (in Heaven)
      Mormon: Brother Stevens brought his guitar so we can sing songs about how much it hurts to lie.

    • Cartman: (preaching) Right here we have a little girl who is very, very ugly. Do you believe He is going to cure your face of the uglies?
      Ugly girl: Yes!
      Cartman: He's going to take that face and make you reasonable to look at!

    • Cartman: (while "healing" Kyle) Right now, all the Jew-ness is coming out of your body!

    • Chris: Saddam, I get the feeling that you don't like me very much.
      Saddam: Gee, whatever gave you that idea? When I stabbed you in the head?

    • Chris: Satan, I'm a 90's man. I cry when I need to.

    • Cartman: (about Kenny) God bitch-slapped him right to the fiery depths of hell!

    • Kyle: You are so going to hell Cartman!
      Cartman: (rolling in money) Suck my balls!

    • God: Satan you were kicked out of heaven for being a strong rebel, and now your a whiney little bitch.

    • Jesus: But Eric, I think this time I have to teach you a lesson! I'm sending you somewhere to think about your sins!
      Cartman: You're gonna send me to hell?
      Jesus: No. Worse!
      (Ensenada, Mexico, day. Mariachi music plays in the background. A tour bus stops in front of Papas and Beer and drops Cartman off, then pulls away.)
      Kenny: (rushes up to him) Eric! Eric!
      Cartman: (sees Kenny) Aw, crap!

    • (Hell, waiting area. Many souls are there, wondering where they are, and why.)
      Hell Director: Hello, newcomers, and welcome. Can everybody hear me? (taps the mic a few times) Hello? Can everybuh-? Okay. (the crowd quiets down) Uh, I'm the hell director. Uh, it looks like we have about 8,615 of you newbies today, and for those of you who are a little confused, uh, you are dead, and this is hell, so, abandon all hope and uh yada yada yada. Uh, we are now going to start the orientation process, which will last about-
      Man 4: Hey, wait a minute, I shouldn't be here. I was a totally strict and devout Protestant! I thought we went to heaven!
      Hell Director: Yes, well I'm afraid you were wrong.
      Soldier: I was a practicing Jehovah's Witness.
      Hell Director: Uh, you picked the wrong religion as well.
      Man 5: Well, who was right? Who gets into heaven?
      Hell Director: I'm afraid it was the Mormons. Yes, the Mormons were the correct answer.
      Crowd: (disappointed) Awww.

    • Cartman: Kenny said that in hell, people speak Spanish and the water there gives you diarrhea.

  • NOTES (3)

    • If you look carefully at the large audience of kids during Cartman's preachings, you'll notice Chuckie from Rugrats is sitting amonst them (he' easy to see because of his bright orange hair and bright blue shirt)

    • Cartman's Chinpokomon doll from "Chinpokomon", the blue Megaman toy from "Damien", and the Terrance and Phillip dolls from "Cow Days" can be seen on Cartman's couch when the adults try to bribe Stan, Kyle, and Cartman with Powdered Doughnut-Pancake Surprise.

    • This episode marks the second appearance of God in the series and the revelation that basic point of the entire fourth season is Cartman's quest for $10 million.


    • Kentucky Fried Movie:

      There is a repeated line throughout this episode: "Yeah, well, where was I going to go? Detroit?"
      It was taken from the 1970s cult film, Kentucky Fried Movie.

    • Happy Days:

      At the beginning of the episode, during the "previously on South Park" recap a reference is made to the Happy Days episode where Fonzie jumped the shark.

    • Southern Baptist Minister:

      Cartman's persona as a televangelist is based on a stereotype of ministers that are most often southern Baptists.

    • Televangelists:

      At the beginning, when Cartman is preaching, at the end of his speech a microphone drops down from the top of the screen. This is a stab at televangelists, known for their poor production values.
