This episode marks the first appearance by Raisins and the girls that work there, and, by the goth kids.
When Lexus served the boys, Cartman is the only person to have his order but the other boys haven't but later on when they are at the table, they had their orders.
When Lexus said "Raisins Girls!" Look at Toyota(red-haired raisin girl) just to your left, you'll notice she's shown again in the next scene.
When we see Stan in his room so depressed look at the shadows on his face, it's on his right side of his face but when Butters spoke it's on his left side and when he'd spoke it's on his right side again.
Porsche's pen and notebook dissapeared when she sat beside Stan.
When Stan asked Kyle to talk to Wendy for him, Kyle puts his homework book down but if you look carefully and you're see that his pencil magically dissapeared from his hand (or he'd properly put in his book), but when he'd ask Stan what Wendy told him, the pencil is on top of his books.
When the boys left the table, Cartman is wearing his gloves but when they reached the front enterance, his gloves are off.
When he is goth, Stan's Poe T-shirt reads "Nevermeat." Stan already knows what happens when you become a vegan, why would he endorse this? Perhaps he was in such pain over Wendy he wasn't thinking straight.
Butters: We came over to cheer you up, Stan!
Stan: Go away...
Kyle: Stan, you can't keep doing this to yourself. You have to go live.
Stan: Why? What's the point of living when the only girl I ever loved is gone?
Cartman: God, what a fag!
Cartman: What-ever, Bebe! Like Stan really cares! Just get out of our football game, you stupid skank!
Bebe: F*ck you, fatass! You guys are assholes!
Butters: Oh yeah? Well, at least we have assholes, you dumb girl!
Cartman: Yeh-heah, right!
Bebe: God, you're so stupid!
Cartman: What a whore!
Mr. Stotch: Oh, boy. I think I know what's happened. Our son hasn't learned yet that girls will pretend to like him for money.
Mrs. Stotch: This place is horrible, to objectify girls like this!
Butters: Oh, no thanks. I love life.
Stan: Hm? But you just got dumped.
Butters: Well, yeah. And I'm sad. But at the same time I'm really happy that something could make me feel that sad. It's like... It, it makes me feel alive, you know? It makes me feel human. The only way I could feel this sad now is if I felt something really good before, so I have to take the bad with the good. So I guess what I'm feeling is like a beautiful sadness.
(Kyle walks into Benny's and sees Stan as a Goth kid for the first time)
Kyle: Oh, Jesus Christ! I had to see it to believe it! What the hell are you doing?
Stan: Breathing deep the darkness that envelops my soul.
Kyle: God dammit, dude. Your mom and dad want you to come home!
Stan: So they can fill my head with more Disney lies about how perfect the world is? I don't think so.
Fringe-flicking goth kid: Yeah, why don't you just go back to your Justin Timberlake and your homework, you conformist assh*le.(flicks fringe)You just don't know what real pain is.
Kyle: Oh, like you know what pain is. Go try living in a third world country, you little pussy.
Fringe-flicking goth kid: I'm not gonna live in a third world country with all the conformists.
Kyle: Stan, this is it...time to stop feeling sorry for yourself and come home. Everyone cares about you and everyone wants you back.
Stan: What about Wendy? Is she still with Token?
Kyle: Yeah, she is.
Stan: Then people shouldn't care about me...because don't care about them. What's the point of caring if all it brings is pain?
Henrietta: For sure.
Kyle: Fine, that's it. I give up. Have fun being miserable.
(Kyle walks out)
All the other goth kids: Yeah...
(The goth kids are having a meeting at Henrietta's house, reading their poems about pain)
Henrietta: Shallow Life.
Drowning alone I gasp for air
Cold creeps over pale skin
There is sadness... so deep, it pulls me down
Happiness dies in the deep, dark sea.
Fringe-flicking goth kid: Yeah, happiness dies.(flicks fringe)
Goth leader: Alright, your turn Stan. Read one of your poems about pain.
Stan: (chooses one of his poems) There is darkness all around me
Deep, piercing black I cannot breathe
My heart has been raped.
Stan:(continues)The pain is everlasting
I miss you so much babe
Want to hold you in my arms again, girl
Want to -
Fringe-flicking goth kid: Woah, woah, dude! Those last two lines aren't goth!
Stan: They're not?
Goth leader: No, dude! You can't say, "I miss you so much, babe. I wanna hold you in my arms."
Henrietta: Make it, "I miss seeing you so much, I wanna slice my eyes out with razorblades."
(Stan meets the Goth kids)
Fringe-flicking goth kid: Life is pain... life is only pain.(flicks fringe)We're all taught to believe in happy fairy tale endings(flicks fringe)...but there's only blackness...dark, depressing loneliness that (flicks fringe)eats at your soul.
Goth leader: Who needs that Ken and Barbie love anyway? Everyone's just walking around like a bunch of conformists. Go ahead and wear your business suits so you can make $34,000 a year and buy your condominium. They're all zombies racing to their graves. Love didn't work for my mom and dad...why should it work for me?
Henrietta: My dad is such an assh*le...drunken bastard doesn't even know I exist,but then he won't let me go to the Skinny Puppy concert because my heroine addict aunt is coming over.(takes a hit of pot)Dinner? That's a laugh...just an excuse for my mom to bitch at me for not wearing girly clothes like all the other Britney Spears wannabes at the school.(takes another hit)
Kindergoth: They're all a bunch of Nazi, conformist cheerleaders...
Stan: ...but if life is only pain, then...what's the point of living?
Fringe-flicking goth kid: Just to make life more miserable for the conformists.(flicks fringe)
Stan: Alright, so how do I join you?
Goth leader: If you wanna be one of the non-conformists, all you have to do is dress just like us and listen to the same music we do.
(Butters tells his parents he has a girlfriend)
Stephen: You see, I told you he wouldn't turn out gay.
Linda: All right you win. ( She hands Stephen some money)
Jimmy: Well Stan, do you feel... better now?
Stan: No dude, I feel worse.
Kyle: Look, we're just trying to show you there's other girls out there.
Stan: Dude, I dont have time to start over with other girls. I'm 9 years old dude. If I don't work things out with Wendy I could be alone my whole life.
Lexus: I'm so glad you guys came in. Everyone in here is such a loser, but you guys seem really cool.
Butters: We are.
(The boys sit down at a table in Rasins)
Kyle: What do you think Stan, these girls are pretty cute huh?
Jimmy: Jesus Christ, I think I've died and gone to heaven.
Butters: This place is awesome!
Cartman: How do you know? We haven't even tried the food yet.
Stan: Ok, I'll hike the ball on the third set hut, Cartman and Kyle, you go deep post outs, Kenny run a slant up the middle, Butters, be ready for the screen.
Cartman: Right, what are we playing again?
Cartman: Got it!
Stan: Hey Wendy! You're a bitch. Token, (holds up middle finger) right here, buddy.
Butters: I'd rather be a crying little pussy than a faggy goth kid.
Stan: Jimmy, will you go talk to Wendy for me?
Jimmy: For, for w-, for w-what?
Stan: Just go talk to her an, and be poetic. Tell her she's my Muse-no! Tell her, tell her she's a continuing source of inspiration to me.
Jimmy: She's what?
Stan: She's a continuing source of inspiration to me.
Jimmy: Okay. (goes over to Wendy) Hey uh Wen-, hey Wendy.
Jimmy: Stan says your a cont (pronounced as 'the C-word') you're a cont-. Stan says you're a cont- cont-.
Wendy: Well tell Stan to f**k off! (she walks away)
Jimmy: Cont-. You're a continuing source of inspiration to him. (goes back to Stan)
Jimmy: She just walked away, Stan. You're gonna have to face facts. It's over.
Kenny had no lines during this episode.
The way that Stan feels in this episode is based on Trey Parker's experience with one of his girlfriends he was once engaged to. Wendy also resembled what she looked like, which is a possible explanation why she is only a very minor character in all the following episodes.
SYNDICATED VERSION: Surprisingly, the infamous stuttering joke is still permitted, coming dangerously close to airing "the C word" on network television. However, the stuttering is shortened, dwelling on the point a little less so that it can go over people's heads. Jimmy stutters once or twice before Wendy reacts. The punch line is still there, but it's just harder to notice.
No other edits appeared aside from the usual tightened language restrictions, which as usual DO permit words like "fag" and "pussy", thus leaving Butters' line intact. Additionally, Stan's middle finger to Token was left intact.
All of the Raisins girls's names are expensive high-end cars.
The name of the diner Stan and the kids go in is Benny's. This is a parody of the diner Denny's.
Butters's parents bet about whether Butters would grow up to be a homosexual, parallels a bet made by the mayor and the chief of police in an episode of The Ambiguously Gay Duo from Saturday Night Live.
Stan's goth name is "Raven", and he has an Edgar Allan Poe shirt.
The Raven is a famous poem by Poe that repeats the line: "Quoth the Raven-Nevermore".
It's one of the earlier examples of the true Gothic style and genre.
Stan also has a t-shirt saying "Nevermeat", hence "the Raven quoth nevermeat".
Stan stands outside of Wendy's house with a stereo above his head, playing the song "Shock The Monkey" by Peter Gabriel.
This is an allusion to the 1989 movie Say Anything, only in that movie, it was Gabriel's other song "In Your Eyes" that was played.
"Raisins" is, of course, an obvious parody of the Hooters restaurant chain. Hooters' waitresses have breasts who have developed and then some, whereas the girls at "Raisins" haven't begun to develop their breasts yet. You might have also noticed that the two i's in "Raisins" on each girl's shirt is located where each girl's nipple would be.
