  • This is the first time that Cartman has successfully managed to convince Kyle Broflovski to help him in one of his schemes. He was able to do this by telling Kyle how much money they made in 11 days, which is a negative stereotype all Jews are driven by money. Though Kyle's moral conscience was conflicted, he tried justifying his actions by talking with Stan about the matter, even sounding like Cartman at one point.
  • The Dutch Slash song was sung in (incorrect) German, not Dutch. The melody, however, does come from a Dutch Sinterklaas song (Sinterklaas Kapoentje).
  • Even though Kyle is Jewish, therefore forbidden to eat pig meat, he is still impressed by the bacon-filled menu at Denny's that even boasts bacon wrapped with pancakes.
  • Kenny is not present in this episode.
  • This is one of the only episode that South Park actually shows the proper appearance of a normal eye (during the crack baby advertisement), there is a green eyed baby, while most of the time, everyone has a white circle and a dot for an eye. The other time a normal eye was shown was in "Starvin' Marvin", when one of the mutant turkeys pulled Kenny's eye out. It was dark blue.
  • When Cartman mentions gravy and French fries are poutines, he is slightly mistaken. A poutine is a dish with fried potatoes, gravy and cheese curds.
  • The episode was nominated for an Emmy Award.[1]
  • Cartman says the french fries dipped in gravy was called "poutine" by the French, which is actually a dish first conceived in Quebec, Canada; a predominantly French-speaking region. It is also normally served with cheese but it shows Cartman's ignorance of culture.

References to Popular Culture

  • Sarah McLachlan is the Canadian singer/songwriter who was pictured in the commercial.
  • The part about Slash being able to be in more than one places at once and not being real, but rather being based off old myths is a reference to Santa Claus (or Sinterklaas).
  • The first scene at Denny's is a parody of the loud club scene from The Social Network.
  • This episode mocks Electronic Arts for solely trying to make the biggest profit off of its customers.
  • On the commentary track for this episode, Trey Parker and Matt Stone say they watched the films The Devils Advocate (1997) and Wall Street (1987).
  • This also mocks the fact that College Athletes are not paid, despite how much money they bring in for the college.
  • It also may be referencing a dispute between Bethesda Softworks and EA in the late 80s when EA bought Bethesda's GRIDIRON (1987) and used their mechanics for their Madden series. Bethesda was promised that EA would publish more GRIDIRON games, but EA decided not to. Bethesda later sued EA for $7,000,000.
  • Vünter Slauche is not Dutch, but a reference to Sinterklaas (Saint Nicholas), the Belgian and Dutch legend on which Santa Claus is based. The song that is sung is basically Sinterklaas Kapoentje, but with the lyrics changed.[2]
  • The US Postal Service uses Bell brand monitors, a parody of Dell.
  • At the end, Kyle sees the orphanage and runs inside. As Kyle inquires as to who funded the orphanage, Stan directs him to Slash's hat and guitar in the corner. This is a reference to the end of Miracle on 34th Street (1947).



  • When Kyle first sees Cartman in the hospital, the door behind him is open. In the next shot with Cartman, the door is closed.
  • It may be considered a goof that Kyle is likely participating in the consumption of pork, which is forbidden in the Jewish faith.
