And John Edwards wins the "biggest douche in the unoverse award" beating, a retarded robot, an alien and literaly: a giant douche. One of the best episodes ever of South Park.
  • This is just plain brilliance

    When I was younger, Southpark didn\'t do anything for me. I thought it was dumb, obscene and crude. Today I know better. Since german television makes this show unwatchable due to crappy dubbing which kills about every ounce of charme Stone and Parker put into the characters, I got to watch the Episodes on DVD, or on the internet. But Southpark is a show, I happily spend my money on. And \"The biggest Douche in the Universe\" is a perfect example. Not only is the main plot dead funny and the spoiled child like behaviour of Edwards hilarious, but the third Rob Shneider movie trailer is maybe the most funny thing I have seen on TV, ever! The first few times I watched the trailer I almost blew chunks from laughter, and then I got to realize, what fine craftsmanship of comedy these 20 seconds of animation is. While the \"A Stapler\" and \"A Carrot\" trailer are both silly funny, the kind of comedy which you can get from shows like \"Saturday Night Live\" or \"Mad TV\", the idea of not even use proper words to advertise for the new Schneider vehicle is just over-the-top original and I salute to Parker and Stone for this. Thank you guys.moreless
  • Amazing episode. One of my top 5 all time.

    I love this episode. It is hellarious how John Edward keeps on dodging Stan\\\'s questions and insisting that he really is a psychic. What is even funnier is how Stan keeps calling John Edward a douche. The ending is mayeb the funniest I have ever seen on South Park. The fact that he is a nominee for \\\"Biggest Douche in the Universe\\\" is just incredibly funny. The Rob Schneider previews are very funny as well. Matt and Trey clearly took a lot of time in making this episode. This is incredibly creative and it is just so funny and I can\\\'t wait until season 10 continues.moreless
  • 94th Episode

    What does a stapler, a carrot and Kenny have in common? They are all upcoming characters possessing Rob Schneider in his latest movie! It's time for everyone to celebrate this derp-a-derp-a-derping good episode that has so many terrific moments involving the Biggest Douche In The Unverse (officially declared this episode)... John Edward.

    The obviously fake antics of this douche proves just how gullible audiences are, even believing Stan to be a psychic when he was proving how fake John Edward was.

    When the spaceship came down towards the end of the episode, I started to think that the episode would turn stupid but the twist that he was a nominee for Biggest Douche In the Universe was handled very well and I find this episode one of the best.moreless

    John Edwards is the biggest douche in the universe. This episode is the greatest sp of all time! If you don't agree, you're a...fatt-butted pancake head. Douches! Chef's parents! Rob Schneider as a carrot! Do I have to spell it out for you? Are you an r-tard? This is the greatest south park ever and you totally agree with me. Yes you do! Don't give me that! Yes you do! so there!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • When the Rob Schneider trailers play, they are giving PG-13 ratings followed by a "Parental Guidance Suggested" tag. However, that's the tag for the PG rating. The PG-13 tag should read "Parents Strongly Cautioned."

    • Visitor Sighting: An alien is seen when Chef speaks out at the Passing Over show. It is right between him and Liane Cartman standing up.

    • Why would Chef's parents use dollars they live in Scotland where they use Pounds Sterling? Chef's mom clearly throws dollar bills out of the window.

    • When Stan did his spirit reading for a second time before an audience, he says that "they"(the spirits) want him to acknowledge Pete or Peter, but did not say Peter was dead, however, a person in the crowd says he did.

  • QUOTES (20)

    • Stan: Look, my friend Kyle won't fly back home to Colorado. All I need you to do is talk to him and tell him, ya know, that the whole talking to dead people isn't real.
      John Edward: Maybe it is for real.
      Stan: Right, but it's not. It's a trick you do, and I need you to just let my friend Kyle know that so that he can go on with his life.
      John Edward: Look. People have the right to be skeptical. I really hear voices in my head.
      Stan: Yes. We all hear voices in our heads. It's called intuition. Get over yourself and tell my friend it's just for fun.
      John Edward: Look. What I do doesn't hurt anybody. I give people closure and help them cope with life.
      Stan: No, you give them false hope and a belief in something that isn't real.
      John Edward: But I'm a psychic.
      Stan: No dude, your a douche.
      John Edward: I'm not a douche. What if I really believe that dead people talk to me?
      Stan: Then you're a stupid douche.
      John Edward: I think that I have had enough of your bullying me. Get out of my house or I'll run upstairs, lock myself in my panic room, and call the police.
      Stan: I'm 9 years old.
      John Edward: (screaming) I'm not talking to your friend and I'm not a douche. (runs upstairs) You better get out of my house or I'll call the police.
      Stan: You are so a douche. I'm nominating you for the biggest douche in the universe award. You douche.

    • Chef's Dad: The spirit's headin' into the light! Unfortunately, it's the livin' room right.

    • Doctor: (About to operate on Cartman) Get me 50cc's of Ketamine, stat! And we should probably get something for the kid, too.

    • John Edward: Doesn't work that way!

    • Stan: Um, we have a dead friend…
      John Edward: It doesn't work that way. So I 'm getting a P, a puh, puh, …

    • Kyle: Well, like we said we didn't know whether or not we should care!
      Chef: Well you should! Cartman is your friend whether you like him or not.

    • Lyrics to the song at the Biggest Douche in the Universe Awards:

      Here he is,
      The biggest douche of the universe.
      In all the galaxies,
      There's no bigger douche than you.

      You've reached the top,
      The pinnacle of douchedom.
      Good goin' douche.
      Your dream has come true.

    • Chef's Mom: Don't let it get on the curtain!

    • John Edward: Alright, asshole! I know you're here to try to throw me off, so go ahead. Give my yoru best shot!
      Stan: No, I don't wanna talk to you. I wanna talk to the audience.
      John Edward: W-why?
      Stan: You see, I learned something today. At first I thought you were all stupid, listening to this douche's advice, but now I understand that you're all here because you're scared. You're scared of death and he offers you some kind of understanding. You all want to believe in it so much, I know you do. You find comfort in the thought that your loved ones are floating around trying to talk to you, but think about it: Is that really what you want? To just be floating around after you die, having to talk to this asshole? We need to recognize this stuff for what it is - magic tricks. Because whatever's really going on in life and in death is much more amazing than this douche.

    • Stan: I am saying this to you, John Edward. You are a liar, you are a fake, and you are the biggest douche ever.
      John Edward: Everything I tell people is positive and gives them hope. How does that make me a douche?
      Stan: Because the big questions in life are tough - Why are we here, where are we from, where are we going. But if people believe in asshole douchey liars like you, we're never going to find the real answers to those questions. You aren't just lying, you are slowing down the progress of all mankind. You douche.

    • John Edward: Listen, kid! If you call me a fake, a liar or a douche, I'm gonna sue you for slander!

    • Cartman: Hey you guys! How's it goin'?

      Chef: Where were we gonna find a child to sacrifice?
      Chef's Mom: We weren't gonna ask you where you got it from.

  • NOTES (2)


    • Star Trek: First Contact:

      The Intergalatic BDUI committee's ship bears a resemblence to the Vulcan ship in the 1996 film Star Trek: First Contact.

    • Thinner:

      Cartman is cured of Kenny's possession when Kenny's soul escapes and is trapped in a pot roast; it is then passed on to Rob Schneider when he eats the pot roast. This is similar to Stephen King's Thinner, where the Thinner curse is removed from the main character and transferred into a pie, and then transferred to other people who eat the pie.

    • Poltergeist:

      Chef's mother says "this child is clean" after excorcising Kenny's spirit from Cartman.

      This is a reference to the 1982 film Poltergeist where after exorcising the ghosts from the house the little old lady-Dr. Lesh [Beatrice Straight]-proclaims "this house is clean".

    • Juilliard:

      Jewleeard is an obvious reference to Juilliard, a fine arts school in New York City.

    • Dumb and Dumberer:

      Trailer Voice Over: Der Derp Tum Teetly Tum der derpy dumb!

      The entire "Der Derp..." trailer is a parody of the teaser trailer for the 2003 film Dumb and Dumberer.

    • Hairspray:

      Mrs. Cartman: Oh wait, Hairspray is playing in New York let's go there.

      Hairspray is a Broadway musical based on the 1988 John Waters film.
