References to Popular Culture

  • The entire episode is a satire of the Biblical stories of Moses (played as Randy Marsh) and Jesus Christ (played as Kyle Broflovski).
  • The name of the episode is taken from Jimmy Buffett's most famous song "Margaritaville". This is also the name of the appliance that features heavily in Stan's plot.
  • The scene in which Eric Cartman offers to 'catch' Kyle features a reference to a similar scene from the films "Jaws", where an older fisherman makes a similar offer to catch the eponymous shark. Specifically, the close-up of his hand as he rakes his nails across a chalkboard is a shot taken directly from the movie.
  • This episode is both a commentary and parody on the economic state of the United States in early 2009.
  • When Stan goes to the DC Treasury, the music cue is similar to the music used in Independence Day.
  • Obama getting the credit despite doing nothing appears to reference the Nobel Peace Prize incident, where he was awarded the Prize despite most Americans believing he did not deserve it.


  • In a continuity error, the Park County Community Center is seen named the "South Park Community Center" in this episode.
  • When Cartman first mentions Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, he incorrectly refers to it as Grand Theft Auto IV. Although, the game takes place in the same city as Grand Theft Auto IV.
