They are best friends, and their friendship, symbolically intended to reflect Parker and Stone's friendship,  is a common topic throughout the series.
Eric Cartman usually nicknamed by his surname only is loud, obnoxious, and amoral, often portrayed as an antagonist. His anti-Semitic attitude has resulted in a progressive rivalry with Kyle, although the deeper reason is the strong clash between Kyle's strong morality and Cartman's complete lack of such.
During the show's first five seasons, Kenny would die in nearly every episode before returning in the next with little-to-no definitive explanation given.
He was written out of the show's sixth season in , re-appearing in the season finale. Since then, Kenny's death has been seldom used by the show's creators.
During the show's first 58 episodes, the boys were in the third grade. In the season four episode " 4th Grade " , they entered the fourth grade , and have remained there ever since.
Plots are often set in motion by events, ranging from the fairly typical to the supernatural and extraordinary, which frequently happen in the town.
Each episode opens with a tongue-in-cheek all persons fictitious disclaimer : "All characters and events in this show—even those based on real people—are entirely fictional.
All celebrity voices are impersonated The following program contains coarse language and due to its content it should not be viewed by anyone. South Park was the first weekly program to be rated TV-MA ,  and is generally intended for adult audiences.
South Park commonly makes use of carnivalesque and absurdist techniques,  numerous running gags ,   violence ,   sexual content ,   offhand pop-cultural references, and satirical portrayal of celebrities.
Early episodes tended to be shock value -oriented and featured more slapstick-style humor. Parker and Stone insist that the show is still more about "kids being kids" and "what it's like to be in [elementary school] in America",  stating that the introduction of a more satirical element to the series was the result of the two adding more of a "moral center" to the show so that it would rely less on simply being crude and shocking in an attempt to maintain an audience.
During earlier seasons, this speech would commonly begin with a variation of the phrase "You know, I've learned something today Parker and Stone met in film class at the University of Colorado in and discovered a shared love of Monty Python , which they often cite as one of their primary inspirations.
Fox Broadcasting Company executive and mutual friend Brian Graden commissioned Parker and Stone to create a second short film as a video Christmas card.
Created in , the second The Spirit of Christmas short resembled the style of the later series more closely.
Frosty , and the second short as Jesus vs. Graden sent copies of the video to several of his friends, and from there it was copied and distributed, including on the internet, where it became one of the first viral videos.
As Jesus vs. Santa became more popular, Parker and Stone began talks of developing the short into a television series about four children residing in the fictional Colorado town of South Park.
Fox eagerly agreed to meet with the duo about the show's premise, having pride itself with edgier products such as Cops , The Simpsons , and The X-Files.
However, during the meeting at the Fox office in Century City , disagreements between the two creators and the network began to arise, mainly over the latter's refusal to air a show that included a supporting talking stool character named Mr.
Some executives at 20th Century Fox Television which was to produce the series agreed with its then-sister network's stance on Mr.
Hankey and repeatedly requested Parker and Stone to remove the character in order for the show to proceed. Refusing to their demands, the duo cut ties with Fox and its sister companies all together and began shipping the series somewhere else.
Parker preferred the show be produced by Comedy Central, fearing that MTV would turn it into a kids show.
However, the shorts were still gaining more popularity over the Internet, and Comedy Central ordered a run of six episodes.
Except for the pilot episode, which was produced using cutout animation , all episodes of South Park are created with the use of software, primarily Autodesk Maya.
As opposed to the pilot, which took three months to complete,  and other animated sitcoms, which are traditionally hand-drawn by companies in South Korea in a process that takes roughly eight to nine months,   individual episodes of South Park take significantly less time to produce.
Using computers as an animation method, the show's production staff were able to generate an episode in about three weeks during the first seasons.
Scripts are not written before a season begins. After exchanging ideas, Parker will write a script, and from there the entire team of animators, editors, technicians, and sound engineers will each typically work — hours in the ensuing week.
Parker and Stone state that subjecting themselves to a one-week deadline creates more spontaneity amongst themselves in the creative process, which they feel results in a funnier show.
On October 16, , the show failed to meet their production deadline for the first time ever, after a power outage on October 15 at the production studio prevented the episode, season 17's " Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers ", from being finished in time.
The episode was rescheduled to air a week later on October 23, The show's style of animation is inspired by the paper cut-out cartoons made by Terry Gilliam for Monty Python's Flying Circus , of which Parker and Stone have been lifelong fans.
Subsequent episodes have been produced by computer animation , providing a similar look to the originals while requiring a fraction of the time to produce.
Before computer artists begin animating an episode, a series of animatics drawn in Toon Boom are provided by the show's storyboard artists.
The characters and objects are composed of simple geometrical shapes and primary and secondary colors. Most child characters are the same size and shape, and are distinguished by their clothing, hair and skin colors, and headwear.
Their movements are animated in an intentionally jerky fashion, as they are purposely not offered the same free range of motion associated with hand-drawn characters.
Canadians on the show are often portrayed in an even more minimalist fashion; they have simple beady eyes, and the top halves of their heads simply flap up and down when the characters speak.
When the show began using computers, the cardboard cutouts were scanned and re-drawn with CorelDRAW , then imported into PowerAnimator , which was used with SGI workstations to animate the characters.
PowerAnimator and Maya are high-end programs mainly used for 3D computer graphics , while co-producer and former animation director Eric Stough notes that PowerAnimator was initially chosen because its features helped animators retain the show's "homemade" look.
The show's visual quality has improved in recent seasons,  though several other techniques are used to intentionally preserve the cheap cutout animation look.
A few episodes feature sections of live-action footage, while others have incorporated other styles of animation.
Portions of the season eight premiere " Good Times with Weapons " are done in anime style, while the season 10 episode " Make Love, Not Warcraft " is done partly in machinima.
Parker and Stone voice most of the male South Park characters. Mona Marshall and Eliza Schneider succeeded Bergman, with Schneider leaving the show after its seventh season She was replaced by April Stewart , who, along with Marshall, continues to voice most of the female characters.
Bergman was originally listed in the credits under the alias Shannen Cassidy to protect her reputation as the voice of several Disney and other kid-friendly characters.
Other voice actors and members of South Park 's production staff have voiced minor characters for various episodes, while a few staff members voice recurring characters; supervising producer Jennifer Howell voices student Bebe Stevens ,  co-producer and storyboard artist Adrien Beard voices Token Black ,  who was the school's only African-American student until the introduction of Nichole in " Cartman Finds Love ", writing consultant Vernon Chatman voices an anthropomorphic towel named Towelie ,  and production supervisor John Hansen voices Mr.
Slave , the former gay lover of Mr. When voicing child characters, the voice actors speak within their normal vocal range while adding a childlike inflection.
The recorded audio is then edited with Pro Tools , and the pitch is altered to make the voice sound more like that of a fourth grader.
Isaac Hayes voiced the character of Chef , an African-American, soul-singing cafeteria worker who was one of the few adults the boys consistently trusted.
Celebrities who are depicted on the show are usually impersonated, though some celebrities do their own voices for the show.
Jennifer Aniston ,  Richard Belzer ,  Natasha Henstridge ,  Norman Lear ,  and Peter Serafinowicz  have guest starred as other speaking characters.
During South Park 's earliest seasons, several high-profile celebrities inquired about guest-starring on the show. As a joke, Parker and Stone responded by offering low-profile, non-speaking roles, most of which were accepted; George Clooney provided the barks for Stan's dog Sparky in the season one episode " Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride ",  Leno provided the meows for Cartman's cat in the season one finale " Cartman's Mom Is a Dirty Slut ",  and Henry Winkler voiced the various growls and grunts of a kid-eating monster in the season two episode " City on the Edge of Forever ".
Parker says that the varying uses of music is of utmost importance to South Park. The show also frequently features scenes in which its characters have disapproving reactions to the performances of certain popular musicians.
Adam Berry , the show's original score composer, used sound synthesis to simulate a small orchestra, and frequently alluded to existing famous pieces of music.
Berry also used signature acoustic guitar and mandolin cues as leitmotifs for the show's establishing shots.
Since , Dunlap has been credited as the show's sole score composer. Dunlap reads a script, creates a score using digital audio software, and then e-mails the audio file to South Park Studios, where it is edited to fit with the completed episode.
In addition to singing in an effort to explain something to the children, Chef would also sing about things relevant to what had transpired in the plot.
Young, would perform the music for these compositions, and, until the character's death on the show, were listed as "Chef's Band" in the closing credits.
The show's theme song was a musical score performed by the band Primus , with the lyrics alternately sung by the band's lead singer, Les Claypool , and the show's four central characters during the opening title sequence.
Kenny's muffled lines are altered after every few seasons. His lines are usually sexually explicit in nature, such as his original lines, "I like girls with big fat titties, I like girls with deep vaginas".
The original unaired opening composition was originally slower and had a length of 40 seconds. It was deemed too long for the opening sequence.
So Parker and Stone sped up it for the show's opening, having the band's lead singer Claypool re-record his vocals. The instrumental version of the original composition, though, is often played during the show's closing credits and is wordless.
The opening song played in the first four seasons and the end credits in all seasons has a folk rock instrumentation with bass guitar , trumpets and rhythmic drums.
Its beat is fast in the opening and leisurely in the closing credits. It is in the minor key and it features a tritone or a diminished fifth, creating a melodic dissonance , which captures the show's surrealistic nature.
In the latter parts of season 4 and season 5, the opening tune has an electro funk arrangement with pop qualities. Seasons have a sprightly bluegrass instrumentation with a usage of banjo and is set in the major key.
For the later seasons, the arrangement is electro rock with a breakbeat influence, which feature electric guitars backed up by synthesized , groovy drumbeats.
The opening theme song has been remixed three times during the course of the series, including a remix performed by Paul Robb. Broadcast syndication rights to South Park were acquired by Debmar-Mercury and Tribune Entertainment in and respectively.
The series is currently aired in syndication in 90 percent of the television markets across the U. Complete seasons of South Park have been regularly released on their entirety on DVD since , with season twenty-one being the most recently released.

The entire series is available for viewing on Hulu. In April , the season five episode " Super Best Friends " and the season fourteen episodes " " and " " were removed from the site; additionally, these episodes no longer air in reruns and are only available exclusively on DVD.

From its debut in to the season twelve finale in the series had been natively produced in i standard definition. In the series switched to being natively produced in i high definition with the beginning of the thirteenth season.
Several of the re-rendered episodes from the earlier seasons have their original uncensored audio tracks; they had previously been released in censored form.
The fifth-season episode " Super Best Friends ", which was pulled from syndication and online streams following the controversy surrounding episode "" , was not released alongside the rest of the season when it was released in HD on iTunes in The episode was later re-rendered and made available for the Blu-ray release of the season that was released on December 5, When South Park debuted, it was a huge ratings success for Comedy Central and is seen as being largely responsible for the success of the channel, with Herzog crediting it for putting the network "on the map".
The episode earned a 6. The episode earned an 8. The success of South Park prompted more cable companies to carry Comedy Central and led it to its becoming one of the fastest-growing cable channels.
The number of households that had Comedy Central jumped from 9. By the third season , the series' ratings began to decrease.
The ratings eventually increased, and seasons five through nine consistently averaged about 3 million viewers per episode.
In , Channel 4 voted South Park the third-greatest cartoon of all time. Burns from The Simpsons. South Park has been nominated for the Emmy Award for Outstanding Animated Program sixteen times , , , —, and — The show's frequent depiction of taboo subject matter, general toilet humor, accessibility to younger viewers, disregard for conservative sensibilities, negative depiction of liberal causes, and portrayal of religion for comic effect have generated controversy and debate over the course of its run.
As the series became popular, students in two schools were barred from wearing South Park -related T-shirts,    and the headmaster of a UK public school asked parents not to let their children watch the programme after eight- and nine-year-old children voted the South Park character Cartman as their favorite personality in a poll.
Parents Television Council founder L. The show further lampooned the controversy surrounding its use of profanity, as well as the media attention surrounding the network show Chicago Hope 's singular use of the word shit , with the season five premiere " It Hits the Fan ",  in which the word shit is said times without being bleeped for censorship purposes, while also appearing uncensored in written form.
Specific controversies regarding the show have included an April Fools' Day prank played on its viewers in ,  its depiction of the Virgin Mary in the season nine finale " Bloody Mary " that angered several Catholics ,  its depiction of Steve Irwin with a stingray barb stuck in his chest in the episode " Hell on Earth ", which originally aired less than two months after Irwin was killed in the same fashion,   and Comedy Central's censorship of the depiction of Muhammad in the season 10 episode " Cartoon Wars Part II " in the wake of the Jyllands-Posten Muhammad cartoons controversy.
The season nine episode " Trapped in the Closet " denounces Scientology as nothing more than "a big fat global scam",  while freely divulging church information that Scientology normally only reveals to members who make significant monetary contributions to the church.
The season fourteen episodes " " and " " were mired in controversy for satirizing issues surrounding the depiction of the Islamic prophet, Muhammad.
The website for the organization Revolution Muslim , a New York-based radical Muslim organization, posted an entry that included a warning to creators Parker and Stone that they risk violent retribution for their depictions of Muhammad.
It said that they "will probably wind up like Theo van Gogh for airing this show". The author of the post, Zachary Adam Chesser who prefers to be called Abu Talhah al-Amrikee ,  said it was meant to serve as a warning to Parker and Stone, not a threat, and that providing the addresses was meant to give people the opportunity to protest.
Despite al-Amrikee's claims that the website entry was a warning, several media outlets and observers interpreted it as a threat. Due to many topics forbidden in China, such as Dalai Lama , Winnie-the-Pooh and organ transplants being involved in the season 23 episode " Band in China ", South Park was entirely banned in China after the episode's broadcast.
The series' Baidu Baike article, Baidu Tieba forum, Douban page, Zhihu page and Bilibili videos have been deleted or inaccessible to the public, all related keywords and topics have been prohibited from being searched and discussed on China-based search engines and social media sites including Baidu , Sina Weibo and on WeChat public platforms.
Commentary made in episodes has been interpreted as statements Parker and Stone are attempting to make to the viewing public,  and these opinions have been subject to much critical analysis in the media and literary world within the framework of popular philosophical, theological, social, and political concepts.
Soon after one of Kenny's trademark deaths on the show, other characters would typically shout "Oh my God, they killed Kenny!
The exclamation quickly became a popular catchphrase,  while the running gag of Kenny's recurring deaths are one of the more recognized hallmarks among viewers of modern television.
I'm going home! In the season two episode " Chef Aid ", attorney Johnnie Cochran uses what's called in the show the Chewbacca defense , which is a legal strategy that involves addressing plot holes related to Chewbacca in the film Return of the Jedi rather than discussing the trial at hand during a closing argument in a deliberate attempt to confuse jurors into thinking there is reasonable doubt.
The term "Chewbacca defense" has been documented as being used by criminologists, forensic scientists, and political commentators in their various discussions of similar methods used in legal cases and public forums.
Another season two episode, " Gnomes ", revolves around a group of "underpants gnomes " who, as their name suggests, run a corporation stealing people's underpants.
When asked about their business model, various gnomes reply that theirs is a three-step process: Phase 1 is "collect underpants". Phase 3 is "profit".
However, the gnomes are unable to explain what is to occur between the first and final steps, and "Phase 2" is accompanied by a large question mark on their corporate flow chart.
Using "???? Especially in the context of politics and economics, "underpants gnomes" has been used by some commentators to characterize a conspicuous gap of logic or planning.
When Sophie Rutschmann of the University of Strasbourg discovered a mutated gene that causes an adult fruit fly to die within two days after it is infected with certain bacteria, she named the gene kep1 in honor of Kenny.
While some conservatives have condemned South Park for its vulgarity, a growing population of people who hold center-right political beliefs, including teenagers and young adults, have embraced the show for its tendency to mock liberal viewpoints and lampoon liberal celebrities and icons.
Anderson describes the group as "generally characterized by holding strong libertarian beliefs and rejecting more conservative social policy", and notes that although the show makes "wicked fun of conservatives", it is "at the forefront of a conservative revolt against liberal media.
Parker and Stone reject the idea that the show has any underlying political position, and deny having a political agenda when creating an episode.
Weinman observes that the most die-hard conservatives who identified themselves as " South Park Republicans" began turning away from the label when the show ridiculed Republicans in the season nine episode " Best Friends Forever.
In , less than two years after the series first aired, a feature-length film was released. The film, a musical comedy, was directed by Parker, who co-wrote the script with Stone and Pam Brady.
As a tribute to the Dead Parrot sketch , a short that features Cartman attempting to return a dead Kenny to a shop run by Kyle aired during a BBC television special commemorating the 30th anniversary of Monty Python's Flying Circus.
Chef Aid: The South Park Album , a compilation of original songs from the show, characters performing cover songs, and tracks performed by guest artists was released in ,   while Mr.
Hankey's Christmas Classics , a compilation of songs performed by the characters in the episode of the same name as well as other Christmas-themed songs was released in ,  as was the soundtrack to the feature film.

Es wird aber auch vermutet, dass die Auseinandersetzung der South-Park- Macher mit dem Sender nur inszeniert war und Parker und Stone den Propheten freiwillig zensiert hätten, um den satirischen Wert der Folge noch zu steigern.
Im April trat in der Der muslimische Comedy-Central-Mitarbeiter Aasif Mandvi erklärte, er fühle sich unwohl, wenn Mohammed gezeigt werde, aber viel ärgerlicher sei es, wenn Leute im Namen der Religion dafür bedroht würden.
Die Inhalte von South Park haben oft politische Hintergründe. Zudem werden in den Geschichten auch immer wieder militärische Auslandseinsätze der USA thematisiert.
In der Episode Kippe weg! Staffel 7 Episode 13 wird die Anti-Raucher-Kampagne unter Rob Reiner kritisiert und erwähnt, dass es nicht genug Beweise für die gesundheitliche Schädigung durch Passivrauchen gebe.
Ein besonderes Merkmal der Sendung ist auch die Zeichenstilästhetik, die an die ursprüngliche Legetrick- Stop-Motion -Technik angelehnt ist, jedoch mit Ausnahme der Pilotfolge mit aktueller Technik produziert wird.
Die Figuren wirken flächig 2D und sind in ihren Details stark vereinfacht. Laut eigenen Angaben entstand dieser Stil während der Studienzeit, als Matt Stone und Trey Parker Semesterprojekte abzugeben hatten und sich aufgrund mangelnden Zeichentalents nicht anders zu helfen wussten.
Die Animationen und der Detailgrad haben sich dabei in den Jahren deutlich weiterentwickelt, ohne jedoch die Legetrick-Ästhetik zu verlieren.
Bei der Darstellung real existierender Personen wurde in den ersten Staffeln der Serie meist ein reales Foto als Gesicht eingesetzt. Der rasche und durchschlagende Erfolg der teils sehr eigenwilligen Perspektiven, die Matt Stone und Trey Parker der US-amerikanischen Öffentlichkeit präsentierten, erklärt sich nicht zuletzt durch die Verarbeitung aktueller politischer und gesellschaftlicher Themen, was teils auf karikierende, überzeichnende Weise, teils mittels hintergründiger Metaphern geschieht.
Stone kritisierte Moore später, weil dieser im selben Film unmittelbar nach dem Interview einen im South-Park- Stil gedrehten Zeichentrickfilm zeigt und so der Anschein erweckt wird, dass Stone und Parker den Film selbst produzierten.
Die zweite Episode Band in China der Staffel wurde in China verbannt. Auch deshalb ist Cartman verzogen und voller stereotyper Einstellungen , vor allem gegenüber Juden.
Cartman handelt meist sadistisch, berechnend und egoistisch Charakterzüge, die in späteren Staffeln mehr und mehr offensichtlich werden. In frühen Folgen der Serie ist Kenny sein bester Freund, später nimmt jedoch der gutmütige Butters diese Stellung ein, der alles glaubt, was Eric ihm weismacht, und ihn bei jedem Vorhaben unterstützt.
Ständig versucht er seinen Mitschülern, insbesondere seinen Freunden Stan, Kyle, Kenny und Butters, übel mitzuspielen. Er hat miserable Schulnoten. Trotzdem ist er ein intelligenter Junge, der es versteht, die Leute in seinem Umfeld — sehr oft seine vermeintlichen Freunde und seine Mutter — immer wieder hereinzulegen und zu manipulieren.
Gelegentlich wird es dem Zuschauer allerdings auch ermöglicht, hinter die Fassade zu schauen, welche sich Cartman errichtet hat.
Dahinter kommt ein verzweifelter kleiner Junge zum Vorschein, dem in seinem Leben vor allem eine Vaterfigur fehlt. Was diesem Zustand noch die Krone aufsetzt, ist die Tatsache, dass Mrs.
Cartman sich kaum bemüht, ihre sexuellen Eskapaden vor ihrem Sohn geheim zu halten. Erst in der Episode wird offenbart, dass Jack Tenorman sein Vater ist; in Unkenntnis davon hatte Cartman jedoch zuvor für dessen Tod gesorgt, um sich an Scott Tenorman seinem Halbbruder zu rächen.
In späteren Folgen wird Cartman von Stan und Kyle kaum noch ernst genommen, wenn er eine neue Verschwörung erfindet, die meistens auf Kyle abzielt. Kennzeichen: orangefarbener Parka mit über den Kopf gezogener Kapuze, darunter blonde Haare und orange Hose.
Kenny ist ein Sohn armer Eltern, die von Sozialhilfe leben. White trash. Charakteristisch für Kenny ist sein Wagemut, der bis zur Tollkühnheit reicht.
Wann immer die Jungen etwas Neues ausprobieren, macht er begeistert den ersten, oft fatalen Schritt. Auch ist er derjenige Junge, der auf den Gebieten des Sexuellen und Obszönen am aufgeklärtesten ist.
Dafür spricht Matt Stone den Text in ein Taschentuch. Die Figur hat daher stets einen vorgegebenen Text, auch wenn dieser nicht immer verständlich wird.
Fest steht, dass nur die anderen South-Park-Figuren Kenny immer verstehen. Ein Running Gag in South Park besteht darin, dass Kenny bis zum Ende der fünften Staffel in fast jeder Episode auf eine meist bizarre Art stirbt, aber in der nächsten Folge wieder auftaucht.
Sie haben Kenny getötet! They killed Kenny! Es kommt auch vor, dass Kenny erst in letzter Minute stirbt. Staffel wird erstmals eine Erklärung für sein ständiges Wiedererscheinen geboten: Nach Kennys Tod gebiert seine Mutter einen Sohn mitsamt dem orangen Parka, der aufgrund des gleichen Aussehens abermals den Namen Kenny erhält.
In der Folge Der Coon vs. Coon and Friends Staffel wird der Ursprung dieses Phänomens offenbart: Kennys Eltern waren vor seiner ersten Geburt auf einem Sektentreffen Cthulhus dessen Einfluss ausgesetzt, sodass Kennys Mutter ihn nach jedem seiner Tode erneut gebiert, und sein Tod gerät zugleich in Vergessenheit.
Es ist wohl die erste Folge, in der Kennys Tod ernst genommen wird. Von dort an stirbt er nur noch sehr selten, und auch ist er nun verständlich.
Kennzeichen: grüne Mütze mit Ohrenschützern, darunter rote Haare, orangefarbene Jacke und olivfarbene Hose. Er und Stan sind die beiden vernünftigen Personen der Vier.
Dennoch lässt er sich sehr leicht provozieren und fühlt sich schnell angegriffen. Insbesondere von Cartman wird Kyle wegen seines jüdischen Glaubens attackiert und teilweise in heikle Lagen gebracht.
Cartmans Abneigung gegen Juden spiegelt sich in mehr oder weniger jedem Dialog der beiden wider. Seine Mutter wird schnell hysterisch und neigt zu Überreaktionen.
Da Kyles Vater ein recht erfolgreicher Anwalt ist, ist Kyle der Wohlhabendste des Quartetts und muss sich auch deswegen diverse Seitenhiebe von Cartman gefallen lassen.
Er ist sympathisch, vernünftig, intelligent und fungiert nicht selten als Mediator zwischen Cartman, Kyle und Kenny.
Er ist der emotionalste des Quartetts, was sich beispielsweise in seiner Liebe zu Wendy oder im Umgang mit emotional berührenden Situationen widerspiegelt.
So ist ein weiterer Running Gag , dass sich Stan jedes Mal übergeben muss, wenn ein Kuss mit Wendy kurz bevorsteht oder wenn sie ihn anspricht.
Trotz seines stark emotionalen Charakters ist Stanley sehr ruhig und bedächtig. Wenn er alleine ist, hat er meistens die Hände in den Jackentaschen und den Blick auf den Boden gerichtet.
Er hat eine Riesenangst vor Schlangen. Stans Vater Randy wird als sehr leicht zu beeinflussen und zu begeistern dargestellt; häufig sind seine Reaktionen beziehungsweise sein Enthusiasmus stark übertrieben.
Dann ist die Steiermark dran! Randy: 'Can't you see that if we fall to New Jersey, California is next? Well, when Utah gets taken over by New Jersey, then who's next?
Okay Mr. Towelie hatte eine Freundin die er liebte. Und dann wurde sie schwanger und hatte einen kleinen Waschlappen.
Stotch: 'Butters, geh von dem Fenster weg, du hast Hausarrest! Ich war nur eben Sprachrohr einer ganzen Generation.
Stotch: 'Butters, away from the window, you're being grounded. I was just being the voice of a generation. Sags ihm, Kyle!
Stan: 'Alter, Hiroshima wurde nicht von einem Delfin und einem Wal bebombt, das waren Die hören erst auf wenn die Verantwortlichen vernichtet sind!
Stan: 'Dude,it actually wasn't a dolphin and a whale who bombed hiroshima, it was the Stan: 'Wenn man so einen Ring trägt, verspricht man bis zur Ehe keinen Sex zu haben.
Stan: 'Rings that say they not gonna have sex or doing anything naughty anymore. Statistisch gesehen ist der bakterienverseuchteste Ort auf Erden der Mund einer amerikanischen Frau - und sowas lässt du an deinen Penis?!
Statistically speaking, the most bacteria-ridden place on the planet is the mouth of an American woman. Cartman: 'Ich wollte bei laufendem Motor in der Garage meiner Mutter abtreten.
Die bringens einfach nicht mehr! Cartman: 'Went to sleep in my mom's car in the garage with the engine turned on. They just don't do the trick anymore.
Haben Luke Skywalker und der Weihnachtsmann eure Leben nicht stärker beeinflusst als die meisten echten Menschen? Egal ob Jesus existiert oder nicht, er hatte einen stärkeren Einfluss auf die Welt, als jeder hier von uns.
Und das gleiche kann man von Bugs Bunny behaupten Sie haben mein Leben verändert, so sehr das ich mich verändert habe. Werden sie dadurch nicht irgendwie echt?
Haven't Luke Skywalker and Santa Claus affected your lives more than most real people in this room? I mean, whether Jesus is real or not, he's had a bigger impact on the world than any of us have.
And the same could be said of Bugs Bunny They've changed my life, changed the way I act on the Earth. Doesn't that make them kind of real?
Wer ist Amerikas ältester Feind? Terrorist: 'America had other enemies before the Muslims, you know? Who is America's oldest enemy?
Ich liebe das Leben. Ja, und ich bin auch traurig, aber gleichzeitig bin ich glücklich darüber, dass so etwas bei mir Trauer verursachen kann.
Und das Ich fühle mich menschlich und der Grund, das ich jetzt so traurig bin kann nur der sein, dass ich vorher was schönes erlebt habe.
Darum gehört für mich das schlechte zum Guten. I love life. Yeah, I'm sad, but at the same time, I'm really happy that something could make me feel that sad.
It's like The only way I could feel this sad now is if I felt something really good before. So I guess what I'm feeling is like a beautiful sadness.
Cartman: 'Have you seen this trick? When someone's sleeping, you can take a glass of warm water, and when you put their hand in it You're supposed to put their hand in warm water to make THEM pee!
Oh well. I can't lose weight, Butters, because I'm not fat, I'm big-boned. You can't slim down bones, stupid!
Officer Barbrady, let's pretend for one second that we had a competent law enforcement officer in this town. What would he do? Cartman: 'I'm not the one walking around all day like Pippi Longstocking.
Stan: 'I know what did cause the flood.
