  • Hilarious!!!

    The boys are given a detention due to their attitudes in art class. Cartman decides that they need to toilet paper (TP) the art teacher's house in revenge. I don't really watch "South Park" a lot but I just happened to catch this episode at 1:30am today before I went to sleep and I decided to stick around and watch it. I'm glad that I watched this episode because the storyline was creative and the humor was non-stop excellent. The boys throwing the toilet paper (a.k.a. teepee) at the art teacher's house after they got in trouble was very funny. Oh heck, a lot of parts really cracked me up such as when Josh keeps saying "Tell me something Officer Barbrady" and then Officer Barbrady confesses to what his dad would make him do, "You have nothing else better to do, huh Office Barbrady" "Yeah", Cartman trying to kill Kyle but keeps hitting with a bat SOFTLY, Cartman asking Kyle "Where are you going Kyle?" and then Kyle responded "I'm gonna go get a glass of water" and then Cartman says "Oh don't worry, I got a glass of water right here" (Cartman gives Kyle the glass of water) then Kyle responds "Uh, thanks", and more. The ending was also funny when Cartman confessed about the teepee thing and then he only gets 1 week of detention for being brave while Stan, Kyle, and Kenny get 2 weeks of detention for NOT being brave according to the principal and the teachers. Cartman trying to kill Kyle, Stan, and Kenny was funny as well. Overall, a hilarious episode of "South Park"... I don't watch this show a lot but I'm sure glad I watched this episode before I went to sleep. 10/10moreless

    The boys TP their art teacher's house, but soon Kyle becomes ridden with guilt. Soon Butters takes the fall (even though he had no part in it), and Kyle, stan and Kenny all agree they should tell and confess it was really them. But what will Cartman do? Will he decide it is time to fess up too? Watch and find out!



    Good episode. It was funny. Cartman's alibi as to why they couldn't have done it was really funny ,and the ending was too. No real complaints, a really good episode, this episode definitely gets an A+ as a grade from memoreless
  • "Tell me something, Officer Barbrady..."

    10
    This episode is DEFINITELY in my top three. The premise for the episode was hilarious. And to top it all off with random movie references? Total. Freaking. Win.



    All right, onto a summary of the episode itself. The boys decide to TP their art teacher's house, because she gave them detention. After the deed is done, Kyle begins feeling guilty, and wants to confess, so Cartman takes it into his own hands to keep Kyle's mouth shut. Meanwhile, Officer Barbrady is investigating the TP-ing (because, of course, he has nothing better to do); enter Josh Meyers, juvenile delinquent and toilet paperer extraordinaire, who helps Barbrady track down the boys in exchange for personal information.



    As I've said before, this is one of, in my opinion, the top three greatest South Park episodes ever (right up there with 'Good Times with Weapons' and 'Scott Tenorman Must Die'). It's highly underrated, not to mention that Josh is totally the greatest SP character ever concieved. EVER. There's not really a whole lot more I can say about this ep, so...go watch it. Now.moreless

    The boys TP their art teacher's house for revenge but gets in deep trouble when officer Barbrady decides to investigate.



    Quote of the Episode - "Cartman (while beating Kyle with a wiffle bat): Don't fight it Kyle, it'll only take longer. Just slip into sweet unconsciousness."



    Favourite Moments - Josh as Hannibal Lecter, the whole toilet paper scenes where officer Barbrady was investigating at the store, and Cartman trying to kill off his friends.



    After the boys' art teacher puts them in detention, they decide to get her back by TPing her house. But things get serious when officer Barbrady (who has absolutely nothing else better to do) decides to find out who committed the hideous crime. Hilarity ensues as the idiotic Barbrady starts an investigation forcing Cartman to take desperate measures.moreless
  • Pretty funny.

    9.6
    The kickoff of the episode is already funny, but the storyline is pretty sweet, too. It is based on toilet papering houses, which most people of all ages know about. Officer Barbrady has an amusing role, because the best case he can work on IS the toilet papering issue. He visits a student T.P.'er, who got some pretty sick information from Officer Barbrady. Kyle is having major regrets from toilet papering the house. The others do not want to get in trouble, especially Cartman. The best part is when, in order to stop Kyle, Cartman takes Kyle in a boat and tries to kill him with a wiffle ball bat. Butters originally gets blamed and that is when everybody, except Cartman, WANTS to come clean. Although when everyone else decides to come clean, Cartman had already done it and got only one week of detention rather than two. Killer episode.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Officer Barbrady enters the Principal's office, he left the door open, but in the next scene, the door is closed and he opens it again…

  • QUOTES (25)

    • Stan: Cartman, what are you doing?
      Cartman: I'm getting rid of our problem. Kyle will be dead in a matter of hours.
      Stan: You don't have to kill Kyle, dude. The police made an arrest. And the person confessed!
      Cartman: They did?
      Kyle: They did?
      Stan: They say they got the guy that did it down at the police station.
      Kyle: Who confessed? That doesn't make any sense.
      Cartman: But can I still kill Kyyyle?

    • Stan: Art is just kinda... for gaywads.
      Butters: I love art class!
      Stan: See.

    • Cartman: Okay. Last night, all four of us were at the bowling alley until about 7:30, at which time we noticed Ally Sheedy, the Goth chick from the Breakfast Club, was bowling in the lane next to us, and we asked her for her autograph, but she didn't have a pen, so we followed her out to her car, but on the way we were accosted by five Scientologists who wanted to give us all personality tests, which were administered at the Scientology Center in Denver until 10:45, at which time we accidentally boarded the wrong bus home and ended up in Rancho de Burritos Rojos, south of Castle Rock, and finally got a ride home with a man who was missing his left index finger, named Gary Bushwell, arriving home at 11:46.

    • Officer Barbrady: Josh, you have to go back to Juvenile Hall, you only have a 3 week sentence.

    • Prison Warden: Josh, were you doing the silly voice for the policeman again?
      Josh: (In a kid's voice) No sir.

    • Josh: That's a terrible cologne you're wearing officer, you should try something a little more…casual.

    • Prison Warden: Josh Myers TP-ed over 600 houses in less than a year. He's a real monster.
      Officer Barbrady: I just need to talk to someone who knows how toilet-paperers think.
      Prison Warden: Just remember, he'd toilet paper you in a second if he had the chance.

    • Cartman: Well I understand the people who did it weren't caught, so it looks like no one will ever know the geniuses who masterminded that perfect crime.

    • Cartman: There's toilet paper on your hands too, Kyle.

    • Art Teacher: Quiet boys! This isn't playtime, you're being punished!
      Stan: (whispering) Fine, but we'll have the last laugh tonight, art whore.
      Cartman: Yea! Payback time, you ugly skank!

    • (Art teacher sees the clay penis)
      Art Teacher: Boys, what is that?
      Kyle: A reindeer?

    • Art Teacher: Good children, remember to feel the clay. Be one with the clay.

    • Cartman: (Whispering) I guess we'll just have to…find out where she lives…and go over there and…TP her house.

    • Clerk: Toilet paper. Toilet paper. Toilet paper. Hey! Hey! You kids be careful with this gum, don't you go sticking it under tables.
      Stan: Don't worry, we will.
      Clerk: Okay then. Toilet paper. Toilet paper. Toilet paper.

    • Cartman: I didn't feel bad before, but now, I just feel terrible ..
      Kyle: You just feel bad for yourself that you are in detention.
      Cartman: Right ... I guess I learned today that sometime ...
      Kyle: Oh, stop it Cartman, you didn't learn anything. Not a goddam thing.
      Cartman: ... mmh.

    • Officer Barbrady: Mr. Bell, do you remember anyone suspicious buying toilet paper in the last few days?
      Mr. Bell: Suspicious like how?
      Officer Barbrady: Well, like someone who was black, or Mexican, or middle eastern.
      Mr. Bell: No, the only Mexican guy I recall bought toaster tarts and chips, and we don't allow middle eastern people in the store.

    • Teacher's Husband: Officer, why would I TP my own house?
      Officer Barbrady: Insurance?

    • Cartman: (while beating Kyle with a wiffle bat) Don't fight it Kyle, it'll only take longer. Just slip into sweet unconsciousness.

    • Josh: You're uncle who hit you with a belt: was he a large man?
      Officer Barbrady: I don't have time for this, kid.
      Josh: Did he stink like beer when he came home from work, all tarred from playing down at the pool hall.
      Officer Barbrady: ALRIGHT! ALRIGHT! MY DAD DRESSED ME UP LIKE A LITTLE GIRL ON POKER NIGHT AND MADE ME SIT ON ALL MY UNCLES' LAPS!

    • Butters: They said I TPed the art teacher's house. I don't seem to remember it, but they're pretty sure it was me. I just can't get my behavior under control.
      Barbrady: His parents are on their way down now.
      Butters: Yeah and boy are they gonna let me have it. Just wait 'til my father gets here...Well I'm just a little asshole is what I am. When God made me, he must not have been paying very close attention because I turned out wrong.

    • Josh: What's the matter, Principal Victoria? Was your mother abusive? Did she spank your thighs with cold cuts and stick umbrellas up your ass?

    • Kyle: Why are they doing us one at a time?
      Cartman: They want to see if we mix the story up, and to see if somebody will rat out the other three for a better deal.
      Kyle: I can get a better deal!?!
      Cartman: Kyle, so help me God if you Jew us out on this one, I'll f(beep)king kill you.

    • Josh: Ah, Policeman Brown. Never quite made Officer. Why is that, Policeman Brown?

    • Clerk: Hey, weren't you here last week?
      Kyle: You T.P.'d someone's house last week?
      Cartman: No, last week was fajita night.
      Kyle: Oh...ew.

    • Kyle: (After being hit by a bat) Ow! Cartman, what the hell are you doing?
      Cartman: Killing you. Unfortunately, I could only afford a wiffle bat, so this will take a while.

  • NOTES (1)

  • ALLUSIONS (8)

    • Silence Of The Lambs:

      The parts where Officer Barbrady consults with Josh at the juvenile prison very closely resemble the conversations between Clarice Starling (played by Jodie Foster) and Hannibal Lecter (Anthony Hopkins) in the movie "Silence Of The Lambs". Both the dialogue and Josh's way of playing with Barbrady are clear allusions to the movie.

    • Killing Mr. Griffin:

      The general plot is very similar to the Lois Duncan novel "Killing Mr. Griffin." In the novel, 4 teens are involved in a kidnapping of their teacher and one of them struggles over whether or not to confess. When the ring leader suspects her, he tries to kill her, just like Cartman and Kyle.

    • The Ring:

      The tree that appears towards the end of Kyle's nightmare resembles the one in the 2002 film The Ring.

    • The Breakfast Club:

      Cartman: And then we saw Ally Sheedy that goth chick from the "Breakfast Club" bowling next to us...

      Ally Sheedy played "basket case" Allison in the 1985 film The Breakfast Club.

    • Red Dragon:

      The scene with Josh and Officer Barbrady in the cell is a reference to the scene where the cop in 2002 Red Dragon goes to Dr. Hannibal Lecter to help him solve a murder.

    • Scarface:

      Kyle: We didn't say nothing about no kid man.

      This was said by Tony in the 1983 film Scarface when he is about to bomb the guys car but he has his children in it.

    • Current Events/ Nancy Kerrigan:

      When Kyle was having the second set of nightmares, after he felt guilty about what he did to the art teacher's house, a clip was shown of the 1994 incident where Nancy Kerrigan was attacked. The scene was from right after she was attacked by an unknown (later identified and convicted) assailant.

    • The Godfather: Part II:

      There are several references to the 1974 film The Godfather: Part II. When Cartman takes Kyle to Stark's Pond and then Stan and Kenny as well, the theme music from "The Godfather" is playing. Also, at the end of the film, Al Neri takes Fredo out into the lake on a fishing boat and kills him. Cartman does the same thing (or at least tries) to Kyle.
