Cartman's more extreme revenge package ("We'll lure your parents out of the house, and then we'll kill them. Uh, we'll cut them up into little pieces and feed them to the dog") is very similar to his final revenge on Scott Tenorman in "Scott Tenorman Must Die".
After Butters' parents find out what Butters did, instead of grounding him, they apologize for lying to him, which is surprising given that they have grounded him for doing almost nothing in the past.
