  • Kinda weirder and weirder.

    This episode is kinda confusing for South Park fans and haters. It's about a stupid casino, and they deal with the indians. They want to keep their town instead of selling it. Casino episodes are not that necessary, but interesting and r*******d. I like that Drawn Together casino episode better when they kissed again.
  • Southpark is threatened to be demolished to make way for a superhighway that should connect an Indian casino with Denver.

    This is another episode whose basic premise was taken almost straight from Douglas Adams novel which also was a radio and TV mini series and a film: "The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy". In a previous episode, Earth was created by aliens as TV entertainment - in HHGttG, Earth was created as a giant computer. In this episode, Southpark is threatened to be demolished to make way for a superhighway just like Earth is demolished by the Vogons in Adams' novel to make way for a hyperspace bypass - and like at the beginning of the book Arthur Dent's house is facing demolition because it is also in the way of a bypass. The similarities do not end there, almost like Adams' protagonist who lies down in front of the approaching bulldozer, the kids and later the people of the town stop the building machines by simply getting in their way. The Douglas Adams reference is nice to see, but as a whole this episode is not as funny as many others or as funny as Douglas Adams was.moreless
  • Shenanigans ensue in South Park as the characters visit a Native American casino.

    This episode has some great parts, my personal favorite being when the whole town comes behind Stan, Kyle, Kenny, and Cartman singing Pat Benetar's Love is a Battlefield. It was awe enspiring. I also liked when Randy is talking about how he has SARS and says he only has like a 98% chance of living. Man, I love Randy. Besides these highlights of the episode, I don't think it's near my favorite episode ... and the whole Glitch character thrown in there at the end (the person had won an auction to help AIDS) was strange. Not so much funny, though ... so, to sum up my review: mediocre episode with some hysterical parts.moreless
  • South Park in danger

    This episode was about indians i mean African Americans wanting to tear down south park and build a super highway for there casino. The citizins need to raise 300,000 dollars in one night to but south park they only raise 10,000 they decide to gamble it at the casino so they can win 350,000 they win! Kyles father has a gambling problem and decides to talk the citizens of south park to let it ride so they can win even more but of course they lose because they are idiots. This episode wasn't great but it wasn't the worst i'm not going to tell you anymore because that would ruin the ending.moreless

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Sheila: Gerald, this is ten dollars a hand!
      Gerald: Relax sweetie, (whispers) I know how to count cards.
      Sheila: Well, I don't want to play here.
      Sharon: Yeah. Come on Sheila, let's go to the nickel slots.
      Randy: Oooo, the nickel slots! You might win the thirty dollar jackpot.
      (Randy and Gerald laugh)
      Ah women, huh? God, I hate 'em.

    • Randy: Soon, only 98% of us will be left.

    • Chief Runs With Premise: I am afraid minors cannot go onto the casino floor. Cartman: I'm not a miner, dumbass! Do you see a shovel in my hand?!

    • Randy: Stanley, listen to me. I have SARS. There's only a 98% chance that I will live!

    • Reporter: Tom, I'm standing in chilly South Park, Colorado, where the residents are entering the third day of their sit-in to try and stop Native Americans from building a superhighway through their town. The temperature is low, but spirits are pretty low, too.

    • Stan: So, do you know how to cure SARS?
      Wise Man: Me? Huh, no. I am just a guide. Sit down. You must find the answer yourself, by taking an inward journey.
      Stan: An inward journey? That sounds kind of gay.

    • Reporter: Tom, it's Tuesday morning now, and the outbreak of SARS in South Park has reached epic proportions. The entire town has been quarantined by the federal government, nobody allowed in our out, which means, nobody can come to our aid. It appears this town, and this reporter, are done for. [in happier tone] Coming up next, choosing the right hair conditioner. What you don't know about hair care products could be costing you a bundle.

    • Randy: There's more to life than profits!
      Chief Runs with Premise: Well, like what?
      Randy: Well like, you know, slurpees and stuff.

    • Randy: How's it goin', Gerald?
      Gerald: Oh, not so good.
      Randy: Yeah, I know what you mean. I'm down $300.
      Gerald: Yeah. I'm down 26,000.
      Randy: Yeah, well, maybe we should - Wait. $26,000?
      Gerald: I forgot to tell you, I have a gambling problem.

    • Chief Runs With Premise: Everyone grab a Chinese person and rub them on a blanket. Make sure you rub them all over. Get the SARS nice and deep in there.

    • Stan: Dude, who the hell are you?
      Alex Glick: Alex. Alex Glick. I got to come on and do the guest voice thingy.
      Kyle: What? Get the hell out of here!
      Alex Glick: (while leaving) Hi Mom! Hi Dad! Hi Jill!

    • Native American: Their cash flows out of them like diarrhea from the buffalo.

  • NOTES (1)

    • When the boys think about all the "good times" they've had in South Park, clips from "Starvin Marvin" (the turkey attack), "Pink Eye" (the Zombie attack), "Mecha-Streisand" (the Mecha-Streisand attack), "Chef's Chocolate Salty Balls" (Mr. Hankey flooding the town with feces), "The Red Badge of Gayness" (the Confederate players running riot), "Krazy Kripples" (Christopher Reeve throwing a car), "Korn's Groovy Pirate Ghost Mystery" (the pirate ship firing its cannon), "I'm a Little Bit Country" (the pro/anti war people fighting each other), "It Hits The Fan" (the dragon Geldon running amok), and "Trapper Keeper" (the blob Cartman attacking) are shown.


    • Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy:

      Almost like Earth and Arthur Dent's house in Douglas Adams' novel, South Park is supposed to make way for a superhighway. The people of South Park lie down in front of the approaching bulldozers in order to stop them just like Arthur Dent does in the book.

    • Historical Allegory:

      Back at the casino, the owners hatch a new plan to give the South Park residents blankets that are contaminated with SARS.

      Lord Jeffrey Amherst gave blankets infected with smallpox to native American tribes. The natives had no immunity to the European infectious diseases. This caused an epidemic that decimated native tribes up and down the Eastern seaboard and as far West as the Great Lakes. The native Americans in this episode are just doing the same to the town of South Park as was done to them hundreds of years before.

    • Current Events/ Iraq War:

      Chief Runswithpremise: Tomorrow we begin the final stage of our plan: shock and awe.

      "Shock and Awe" was a term often used to describe the US's war plan in Iraq. The concept was to sweep in fast and furious and psychologically destroy the enemy so they don't want to fight.
