  • Trivia

    • Visitor Sighting: There is a picture of a visitor on the sign in the cafeteria that says, "Have you seen me?"

    • Chef's parents tell the kids that The Loch Ness Monster asked them $3.50 but if Nessie lives in Scotland, surely she would not ask for dollars as they are not used anywhere in the UK.

      Nessie would have asked for sterling.

    • During the scene when the Succubus is being sent down the hole in the church Kenny's body is missing from under the bench. Then moments later when Eric is asking if Kenny is alright Kenny's body returns but it is not where it was before.

    • Chef's first initial and his last name is on his cubicle name tag it reads J. Mc ELROY

    • The company name of the accounting firm seen in the episode is Steinburg and Burgstein Accounting, two stereotypical Ashkenazi Jewish names, this is referencing the stereotype that most Jews are in the financial industry, and vice versa.

    • Stan tells Chef's parents to let him know they were there, but they had just talked to Chef moments ago.

    • When Kyle reads the instrucions for defeating a succubus, he says "this the succubi power" but the book reads "this is the succubus power".

    • The song the Succubus sings with Chef is Marine McGovern's "Morning After," the Academy Award winning song from the original 1972 film The Poseidon Adventure.

    • When Stan, Kyle and Kenny go to Chef's house to tell him about Veronica, they can't talk to him so they sit down opposite Chef's parents. When Kyle says, "We have to talk to him," he and Stan have swapped places.

    • A succubus cannot inspire feelings of emotional love, only physical lust. One would assume a man like Chef could recognize the difference

    • Kenny is completely crushed by the Succubus at the church (including his head), yet at the end of the episode when Cartman brings in his severed head it's all "uncrushed."

    • Chef's Dad describes the Monster as a "huge crustacean from the Paleolithic era." First of all, although the creature does not actually exist, by most accounts, it is not a "crustacean" (crabs and such) but a prehistoric marine reptile known as the Plesiosaur. Secondly, the "Paleolithic Era" (AKA the Stone Age) ranged from about 750,000 years ago until about 15,000 years ago; whereas, the Plesiosaur lived during the Mesozoic Era, which ranged from about 248 million to 65 million years ago.

    • In the scene where Cartman goes to the optometrist the doctor says, "OK, lets get started. You're here for the liposuction right?", the nurses giggle and Cartman says, "AY, you son of a bitch." but it's muffled. Then the optometrist says, "Alright, time to laser me a little piggy." And then Cartman says, "Ay, you son of a bitch, I'm gonna kick you square in the nnhhhnhhh...." but it's not one bit muffled.

    • In the wedding part of this episode Cartman and Kenny are seen sitting in the middle of the bench. But when the succubus breaks out Cartman and Kenny are seen sitting at the end of the bench.

    • Chef's dad says the first time he saw the Loch Ness Monster was about 7 or 8 years ago. Then later in the episode he said Chef was about 3 years old when he saw the Lochness Monster again.

    • Kyle, Stan, and Kenny are on the house as Chef's parents tell them the first time they met the Loch Ness monster. The next scene shows Cartman at the optometrist's office. The following scene shows Chef's parents standing outside of the house. As the scene goes inside the house Chef's parents are still there telling the boys about the second time they met the Loch Ness monster.

    • During the scene at the church, Cartman falls asleep. Instead of trying to wake him up, Why didn't Kenny just turn on the music himself when he's standing right next to the radio?

  • Notes

    • This episode is occasionally referred to as "Chef's Mama".

    • This is the only episode where Kenny actully dies twice and dies and comes back to life in the same episode. During the scene where the kids are waiting at the bus stop to play ball, The first day scene shows the kids, then it's night and Kenny is dead with rats over him. Then It's morning and he's alive again. He later dies from the Succubus.

    • First appearance of Chef's parents; their names are Thomas and Nellie.

    • On the commercials promoting this episode, Ms. Crabtree was shown as the new school cafeteria chef. Of course when it aired, the new cafeteria chef was a new character called Mr. Derp.

  • Allusions

    • The Shining:

      At Chef's workplace a sign can be seen that says 'All work and no play makes Jack an ideal employee.' this is a reference to the film 'The Shining'

    • The Lord of the Flies:

      Cartman's optometrist repeatedly calls him Piggy. This is a reference to the character Piggy from LOTF who had a similar weight problem and pair of glasses. Like Piggy, Cartman hates this nickname, though Piggy never got nearly as threatening as Cartman did.

    • Mr. Derp:

      Matt and Trey most likely named Mr. Derp from the word they use when they do something say hit themselves on the head with a hammer. In their 1998 film BASEketball you can hear Matt say "derp" after leaving Cindy's room with her mom's vibrator.
