* Just the sheer fact that [[TheyKilledKennyAgain Kenny's usual death]] is played ''[[CerebusSyndrome utterly straight]]'', with the whole cast deeply cut and heartbroken by the revelation he is terminally ill. Note at the time it was made, the intention was to have Kenny KilledOffForReal because his RunningGag had run its course, meaning this was meant to be a proper send off for one of the main character (even if he ultimately returned a season later).

[[AC:Breast Cancer Show Ever]]
* After a last ditch effort to get out of the fight by whining to his mom, who confronts Wendy's parents, who tell Wendy to leave him alone, Cartman knows Wendy is powerless to do anything to him and continues mocking breast cancer to rub salt in the wound. Anyone who has ever been bullied should be able to empathize.
-->'''Wendy''' (saddened and shocked): You unbelievable bastard. You beat me but you won't stop. WHY? (gets out of her desk) WHY ARE YOU DOING THIS TO ME? (shaking Cartman like a ragdoll) WHY WON'T YOU JUST STOP?!

* The fact that Chef was [[KilledOffForReal killed off can upset many of his fans, although it could also count as NightmareFuel due to its [[CruelAndUnusualDeath detailed and horrifying nature.]]You can even hear him scream in pain as he's dying!

-->'''Kyle''': We are all here today because Chef has been an important part of our lives. A lot of us don't agree with the choices Chef has made in the last few days. Some of us feel hurt and confused that he seemed to turn his back on us. But we can't let the events of the last week take away the memories of how much Chef made us smile. I'm going to remember Chef as the jolly old guy who always broke into song. Iím going to remember Chef as the guy who gave us advice to live by. So you see we shouldn't be mad at Chef for leaving us. We should be mad at that fruity little club for scrambling his brains.

* Again mostly played for laughs throughout the episode's subplot but the fact that Mr Adler has PTSD over his wife's death in a mysterious plane accident to the point he [[spoiler: attempts suicide by saw blade in the Shop classroom only to be stopped in the nick of time by the brawl that leads to Kenny's accidental death. Whilst holding Kenny's body, he sees a vision of his wife and his family members who have passed telling him to let go of the past to which he promises to move on from her death.]] Some may consider this subplot somewhat [[http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HarsherInHindsight Harsher In Hindsight]] due to the fact that lead voice actress Mary Kay Bergman committed suicide a few months after this episode aired.

[[AC:Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics]]
* The cast singing "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" for two reasons. One, them showing Mary Kay Bergman's characters (she committed suicide shortly before) and the boys saying that they'll be together throughout the years if the fates allow, not aware they'll be together for at least the next eleven seasons.

[[AC:Tom's Rhinoplasty]]
* Wendy's flashback to "happier times" with Stan whilst silently weeping after being rejected over Ms. Ellen. Although this scene is played for laughs with the many shots of Stan puking over Wendy, the music in this scene is quite touching even for a small ballad composed for South Park by Trey's then girlfriend Toddy Walters and her beautiful vocals.

* Jimmy Fallon mocks all of South Park after Mr. Garrison (mirroring Donald Trump's infamous campaign) decides to run for president. Every character is watching and feeling the burn. The sadness sets in when Randy - the biggest ManChild in town - just shuts off the TV and says ''"[[DudeNotFunny That's not funny]]"'' in a flat voice. The poor guy's spirit was crushed.

*** When he's listing the bad things he's done in "The Death of Eric Cartman", the only thing from this episode he mentions is that he convinced a woman to get an abortion so he could build his own Shakey's Pizza. Notably, he does ''not'' say anything about exploiting Kenny's illness to do so, [[AlternativeCharacterInterpretation which seems to imply that he might actually care about helping him]] or due indifferent he was towards Kenny, due to Kenny's curse of people being unable to remember his deaths.

And of course, it could be a matter of simple indifference to Kenny's death, as his main goal was to create his very own Shakey's pizza.
