Trivia

  • Kenny McCormick only has one line in this episode; when Cartman shows him the penis photo, he can be clearly heard saying, "That makes you totally fucking gay!"
  • This is the ninth episode where Cartman's name is in the title.
  • Pastor Phillips, the counselor who was "cured" of his confusion, may be an allusion to Ted Haggard, who went to counseling to make him heterosexual after a man outed him.
  • When Cartman comes to find the picture, Stan, Kyle, and Kenny are all seen playing Living which is an allusion to the popular board game, Life.
  • This is the second time Cartman has overreacted to getting hit by Kyle. The first was in "It's Christmas in Canada".
  • Butters' blood type is revealed to be "O".

The photo in question and the only possible way of seeing it.

  • When Cartman takes a picture of himself with Butters' penis in his mouth he gives a thumbs-up sign and smiles as he says that the picture is against the Iraq war. This is a reference to the controversy of Army Private Lynndie England, who took pictures of herself torturing the prisoners of an Abu Ghraib prison while smiling and giving a thumbs-up sign.
  • A total of 3 people kill themselves at Camp New Grace during the course of the episode.
  • This is the first episode Eric Cartman shows an interest in photography.
  • Cartman pronounces "Property" the same way he pronounces "Authority" in his catchphrase, "Respect My Authoritah".

References to Popular Culture

  • Stan, Kyle and Kenny were playing a board game called "Living" which is a parody of The Game of Life. This has been seen before in the episode "All About Mormons".
  • Bradley's appearance and mannerisms are modeled after Brad Dourif's portrayal of the character Billy Bibbit in the 1975 film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
  • This episode is a reference to the movie But I'm a Cheerleader, wherein a young woman is sent to a campsite to cure homosexuals of their so-called unclean desires. The one difference in this is that the campsite only helps young boys and that Butters has no idea what being bi-curious actually means.

Continuity

  • Cyborg Bill makes a reappearance in this episode both as an action figure and in a poster that reads "Gi Bill Won't Run."
  • This is the second time Cartman has given oral sex to someone. The first was in "The Simpsons Already Did It", where a stranger tricks him into sucking semen from a "hose."
  • Cartman brings his mother in to resolve conflicts with his schoolmates by crying in front of her. This happens again in "Breast Cancer Show Ever", when he uses the same tactic to avoid fighting Wendy.
  • Stephen Stotch says he is bi-curious, as shown in "Butters' Very Own Episode". Implying, he has not gotten over his addiction to homosexuality. 
  • This is the first appearance of Priest Maxi since "Grey Dawn".
  • The episode ends with Cartman saying "Lame" in a monotone voice, similar to the way he did at the end of the episode "AWESOM-O".

Goofs

  • The boy behind Butters that shot himself can be seen later in the episode.
