->''"Hello! My name is Elder Price \\
And I would like to share with you the most amazing book..."''

A [[TheMusical Broadway musical]] by Creator/TreyParkerAndMattStone (of ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'') and Robert Lopez (of ''Theatre/AvenueQ'').

The story follows two young UsefulNotes/{{Mormon|ism}} men who are assigned to UsefulNotes/{{Uganda}} as part of their mission. Elder Kevin Price is a [[WideEyedIdealist fresh-faced, eager young man]], while Elder Arnold Cunningham is an awkward goofball who hasn't really read all the scriptures.

The musical pokes fun at organized religion, and takes some admitted liberties with Mormon doctrines, such as the story of Joseph Smith and the magical AIDS frog. In the end, however, the characters realize that their faith has inspired them to be better people and to help others. Even if they convey the Bible's stories in a wildly inaccurate way -- typically involving [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Mordor]] and [[Franchise/StarWars Boba Fett]] -- their honesty and optimism ends up convincing their Ugandan students to convert to Mormonism and try to make the world a better place.

Created by the same people who made ''WesternAnimation/SouthPark'', so you shouldn't be surprised to find a ''lot'' of BlackComedy.

The cast album was released, and became the best-selling cast album of all time on iTunes, beating out ''Music/AmericanIdiot'' and reaching #2. The full soundtrack can be streamed for free on [[http://www.facebook.com/TheBookOfMormonOnBroadway?sk=app_105329372892362 the official Facebook page]].

The show won a huge number of TonyAwards, including Best Musical.

Not to be confused with the actual religious text Literature/TheBookOfMormon.

----
!!Hello, my name is Elder Troper, and I would like to share with you this amazing trope list...

* AccidentalMisnaming: Elder Cunningham is simply incapable of remembering Nabulungi's name.
* TheAce: Initially, Elder Price.
* {{Adorkable}}: Elder Cunningham.
* AffectionateParody: Of musical theatre.
* AmericanTitle: Two songs: "All-American Prophet" (the actual story of Mormon origins) and "Joseph Smith: American Moses" (the horribly off version told to the Ugandans by Elder Cunningham). Amusingly, both versions can be considered straight examples, since the Ugandans are telling the story as they know it.
* AnAesop: Very ''specifically'' averted. WordOfGod is that they don't want to insist that one particular lesson should be learned from the show and prefer to leave it open for people to interpret any way they'd like.
* ArmoredClosetGay: PlayedForLaughs with Elder [=McKinley=]. Who in "Turn It Off" is trying to hide these feelings.
* ArtisticLicenseHistory: InUniverse, we have "Joseph Smith American Moses," the Ugandans' version of the Joseph Smith story, based on Elder Cunningham's inaccurate teachings.
* ArtisticLicenseReligion: The mechanics of how a mission operates are completely off, per RuleOfFunny:
** Missionaries find out where they're going via mail long before they even arrive at the Missionary Training Center.
** They also don't spend their entire two years with the same companion; they're usually at least one of a hundred or so missionaries operating within a mission chapter's boundary (which, while it may vary in size, is almost ''certainly'' larger than just one village). The opportunity to be assigned to a different companion/area within the mission comes up every 6 weeks.
** Some liberties are taken with Mormon history and beliefs -- Mormon doctrine claims that eleven believers other than the religion's founder saw 'the Golden Plates' (which tell the story of how Ancient Jews came to America and became Amerindians), and Mormon doctrine holds that Hell is not a place as portrayed in "Spooky Mormon Hell Dream" but a metaphor (a metaphor for 'what' is not clear).
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking:
** During "Spooky Mormon Hell Dream", we have the spirits of Genghis Kahn, Jeffrey Dahmer, Adolf Hitler, and.....Johnnie Cochran show up in one verse:
--> '''Adolf Hitler''': I started a war, and killed millions of Jews.
--> '''Genghis Khan''': I slaughtered the Chinese.
--> '''Jeffrey Dahmer''': I stabbed a guy and fucked his corpse!
--> '''Johnnie Cochran''': I got O.J. freed.
** Elder Price then proceeds to claim he's [[FelonyMisdemeanor worse than all of the above for the thoughtless way he treated his mission brother]]. ''And then Hitler, Genghis Khan, Dahmer, and Cochran all {{GASP}}.''
* AsTheGoodBookSays: Subverted. Elder Cunningham can't find appropriate verses that condemn things like raping babies or genital mutilation, so he resorts to [[AssPull making things up]].
* AssPull: Elder Cunningham does this repeatedly, InUniverse. [[spoiler:When the Africans perform a stage play of the events of the Book of Mormon as described by Cunningham to the Mission President (a version that features Joseph Smith having sex with frogs, battling dysentery, and encounters with Ewoks), he decommissions the mission.]]
* AssShove: Happens to [[spoiler:Elder Price]] in Act [=II=]. It's a bit of MoodWhiplash -- at first, it looks like General Butt-Fucking-Naked is going to kill or otherwise mutilate [[spoiler:Elder Price]]... and then we see him in the doctor's office, where an X-Ray shows that his own copy of the Book of Mormon's been shoved up there.
* BackFromTheDead: PlayedWith when [[spoiler:a disillusioned Nabulungi tells the other villagers that Elder Cunningham isn't coming back because "he was eaten by lions, alright?" When he walks back onstage, Mafala excitedly declares, "Our prophet returns even from the dead!" It's great to use as an intimidation strategy on people like General Butt Fucking Naked.]]
* BadDreams: The Spooky Mormon Hell Dream. Apparently it's nothing to be concerned about, and Elder [=McKinley=] wonders if he was in it.
* {{Bookends}}: The musical begins with missionaries going door to door and ringing doorbells. The ending number has the newly-converted Ugandans going mud hut to mud hut with the [[spoiler: "Book of Arnold."]]
* BreakTheCutie: Cunningham.
* BreakTheHaughty: Elder Price.
* BrickJoke: Several, most notably "Joseph Smith, American Prophet" to "Making Things Up Again"
* CampStraight: YMMV depending on the cast, but many of the Elders are usually this, most noticeably Elder Price.
* TheChiefsDaughter: Nabulungi.
* ClusterFBomb: The Ugandans. Particularly their first song, "Hasa Diga Eebowai", primarily because it's Ugandan for "Fuck you, God!"
* CoolAndUnusualPunishment: Elder Price's idea of torture during "Spooky Mormon Hell Dream" involves being force-fed coffee
* CountryMatters: The Ugandans enjoy this swear almost as much as the F bomb in "Hasa Diga Eebowai."
* CreatorCameo: Trey Parker and Matt Stone provide the voices of the Narrator, Mormon the Nephite, and ''JesusChrist'' in the opening scenes of Acts I and II.
* CringeComedy: The Ugandans' performance of "Joseph Smith: American Moses", informed by Elder Cunningham's not-at-all-accurate account that blends their own troubles with the Joseph Smith story (more accurately told in Elder Price's song "All American Prophet"), is very much this.
* CrisisOfFaith: Happens to Elder Price. Interestingly, it isn't resolved by the end of the play; instead, he just embraces "having complete doubt that God exists" as his new state of mind.
* CrossoverCosmology: Elder Cunningham starts mixing the Mormon theology with ''Franchise/StarWars'', ''Franchise/StarTrek'' and ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings.''
* CrowdSong: Many, most notably "Hasa Diga Eebowai" and "Man Up".
* DareToBeBadass: Elder Cunningham does this to himself with "Man Up".
* DarkReprise: A section of "You And Me (But Mostly Me)" gets a DarkReprise in the middle of "I Am Africa", and Nabalungi gets a DarkReprise of "Hasa Diga Eebowai".
* DeconReconSwitch: Spends the first half completely mocking and poking fun at religion, only to finally re-affirm and embrace the core of it; that it was always meant to help people and bring them together.
* DecoyProtagonist: Act 1, especially "But Mostly Me," sets up Elder Price as the hero and Elder Cunningham as the PluckyComicRelief.[[spoiler:By the end, Elder Cunningham has become a new prophet, with Elder Price as one of his followers.]]
* DialogueReversal: When Elder Price and Elder Cunningham reprise "But Mostly Me", the titular line of dialogue is spoken by Cunningham instead.
* DisneyAcidSequence: "Spooky Mormon Hell Dream"
* DisneyPrincess: WordOfGod says Nabulungi is a parody of these.
* DoesThisRemindYouOfAnything:
** "Baptize Me" includes a multitude of {{Double Entendre}}s.
** The moment when General Butt Fucking Naked and his guards close in on [[spoiler:Elder Price]] is reminiscent of a scene from the story of Abinadi in ''Literature/TheBookOfMormon''. In fact, [[spoiler:Elder Price]] quotes Abinadi directly by saying "Touch me not!"
* DrunkOnMilk: [[spoiler:Kevin]] acts as if under the influence of alcohol after DrowningHisSorrows in...coffee?
* {{Eagleland}}: When the Elders first arrive in Uganda, they are approached by the General's soldiers, who shout "German? British?". Elder Price smiles and waves and Elder Cunningham takes out his camera and starts filming everything, to which one soldier groans "[[HawaiianShirtedTourist American]]"
* EvilLawyerJoke: The inhabitants of Spooky Mormon Hell include [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Adolf Hitler, Genghis Khan, Jeffery Dahmer, and Johnnie Cochran.]]
--> '''Hilter:''' I started a war and killed millions of Jews
--> '''Genghis Khan:''' I slaughtered the Chinese
--> '''Dahmer:''' I killed a guy and fucked his corpse.
--> '''Cochran:''' I got O.J. freed.
* EasyEvangelism: Completely [[DeconstructedTrope deconstructed]].
* EstablishingCharacterMoment: During "Hello!", we get this insight:
--> ''Ding, dong!''
-->'''Elder Cunningham:''' '''''[[NoIndoorVoice HELLO, WOULD YOU LIKE TO CONVERT RELIGIONS AND GET THIS FREE BOOK WRITTEN BY]]''''' '''''[[NoIndoorVoice JESUS?!?!?!]]'''''
--> '''Missionary Leader''': No, '''''no''''' Elder Cunningham! That's ''not'' how we do things around here! You're making things up again!
* EverybodyKnewAlready: [[spoiler: At the end, the Ugandans reveal that they always knew Elder Cunningham completely made up his story of Mormon origins, but were inspired by the optimism of building a better home for themselves.]]
* ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin: Mormon Hell Dream".
* {{Expy}}: Ugandan General Butt Fucking Naked is a stand-in for the Liberian warlord [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/General_Butt_Naked General Butt Naked]], whose Butt Naked Brigade really did use {{Full Frontal Assault}}s that were a lot less funny than they sound.
* EyeScream: One of the benefits of living in "Sal Tlay Ka Siti" is the lack of flies biting your eyeballs.
* {{Foreshadowing}}: Elder Cunningham's speech to Elder Price, in which he suggests that the real hero of ''Literature/TheLordOfTheRings'' was [[PluckyComicRelief Samwise Gamgee]]. [[spoiler:This foreshadows how Elder Cunningham, who is himself a PluckyComicRelief sidekick to Elder Price, will actually be the one to unite the Ugandans in faith and to defeat General Butt Fucking Naked.]]
* FullFrontalAssault: General Butt Fucking Naked says that he kills people butt. fucking. naked! Just before delivering his AssShove on Elder Price, the General begins to strip down.
* TheFundamentalist: Elder Price, at the beginning. He learns to loosen up.
* GeekyAnalogy: Elder Cunningham rationalizes concepts of Literature/TheBookOfMormon to himself and explains them to the Africans using ''Star Wars'' and ''Lord Of The Rings'' references.
--> '''Cunningham:''' You mean Literature/TheBible is a trilogy and the Book of Mormon is ''Film/ReturnOfTheJedi''?
* GRatedDrug: Coffee, to Elder Price at least.
* GiveGeeksAChance: Elder Cunningham and Nabalungi.
* HakunaMatata: Played with twice. Most noticeably in "Hasa Diga Eebowai" where the true meaning of the phrase subverts the normal optimism of the trope, which is not surprising considering that the English translation of the phrase is "[[spoiler:[[ClusterFBomb Fuck you, God]]]]". The TropeNamer is even referenced with "Does it mean no worries for the rest of our days?" The trope is then deconstructed with "Turn It Off" where the missionaries sing about forgetting their problems, but instead of this being a sign of how care-free they are, it hints at StepfordSmiler tendencies as the Elders suppress their emotions through tap-dance, including a sister succumbing to cancer, an abusive father, and one with gay thoughts.
* HeelFaithTurn: DoubleSubversion. When [[spoiler:Elder Price prances in during "I Believe"]], General Butt Fucking Naked is... unimpressed. At the end, though, when [[spoiler:he's confronted by Elders Cunningham, Price, and the Ugandans]], he relents and joins the missionaries in the final number.
* HeterosexualLifePartners: Price and Cunningham by the end of the show.
* IWantSong: "Sal Tlay Ka Siti", where Nabulungi sings about what [[FunetikAksent Sal Tlay Ka Siti]] must be like, where "The warlords are kind" and "there's a [[UsefulNotes/TheRedCross Red Cross]] on every corner."
* ItsAllAboutMe: Elder Price has a problem with this, best seen in "You And Me (But Mostly Me)".
* LargeHam: "Have you heard the story of our prophet, [[spoiler:Arnold Cunningham, Arnold Cunningham, Arnold Cunning...HAAAA-AAALLLOOOO!!!]]
* LastSecondWordSwap:
** During "Hello", where at one point the singers go "So you won't burn in..." and another man belts out a "[=HeeeeeEEEEEEELL-OOOOOOOOOOOO!=]"
** In "[[ClusterFBomb Hasa Diga Eebowai]]", Mafala Hatimbi goes, "Here's the butcher, he has AIDS; here's the teacher, she has AIDS; here's the doctor, he has AIDS; here's my daughter [Nabulungi], she has AAAAAAA......wonderful disposition!"
** From an early demo version of "Spooky Mormon Hell Dream": "Down, down to Satan's realm, / That's where you shall dwell! / This is eternal, / No escape from [[GoshDangItToHeck H-E-Double-Hockey-Sticks!]]"
* LawyerFriendlyCameo: While Star Wars is specifically named, Darth Vader and Yoda Show up in fairly crudely made costumes. There are some hobbits as well.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall:
-->'''Elders in the song "Two by Two"''': Our paths have been revealed so let's start the show!
-->'''Cunningham during "Man Up"''': [[spoiler: Time to stand up [[{{Foreshadowing}} and steal the show!]] ]] and [[spoiler: I'm [[{{The Protagonist}} in the lead]] for the very first time!]]
* LettingTheAirOutOfTheBand: The band does a live version of this when we are shown just how bleak and depressing life in the African village is.
* LiteralMinded: The "golden plates" shown in "Joseph Smith American Moses" are gold-colored paper plates.
* LyricalDissonance: In typical Parker and Stone fashion.
** "Hasa Diga Eebowai," which has a catchy tune. Those words are repeated throughout the song. Only, we then learn that the statement is Ugandan for "[[ClusterFBomb Fuck you, God]]".
** "Turn it Off" is an even worse example: the StepfordSmiler elders have an upbeat melody to which they sing about growing up with an abusive father, a sister dying of cancer, and repressed homosexuality.
* {{Manchild}}: Elder Cunningham.
* MassiveMultiplayerEnsembleNumber: "Man Up" becomes one about half way through.
* MaybeEverAfter: Cunningham and Nabulungi.
* MeaningfulEcho: The line "You're making things up again" in "Hello" is echoed into its own larger song, but this time [[spoiler:Arnold's lies lead all the Ugandans into joining the Church, drastically changing the rest of the musical.]]
* MightyWhitey: Parodied in "I Am Africa," which is sung by the (very white) missionaries.
* MinorCharacterMajorSong: Mafala Hatimbi leads the song "Hasa Diga Eebowai" and promptly recedes into the background as the focus shifts to his daughter, Nabulungi.
* MoodWhiplash:
** {{Invoked|Trope}} by the various Elders' stories in "Turn It Off".
** Played straight when General Butt Fucking Naked arrives. We get all of two minutes to laugh at his name...before he point-blank shoots a rebellious villager, complete with blood spurting out of the villager's head.
** Played straight when Elder Price is about to be [[spoiler:attacked by General Butt Fucking Naked, there is some humor in it, but the scene and music is overall suspenseful]]... then whiplash to a lighthearted, playful tune as the scene shifts to Elder Cunningham.
* MusicalisInterruptus: "All American Prophet" is momentarily interrupted by the main RunningGag of that guy who sings about having maggots in his scrotum. Notable in that it's a rare example of a song being interrupted by something else sung. (And the interrupting song fits into the previous rhyme, which is even more impressive: "Joseph never showed them / I have maggots in my scrooooohhhhhhtum")
* MyGreatestFailure: PlayedForLaughs in "Spooky Mormon Hell Dreams" - Elder Price's is [[spoiler:stealing a donut from his parents and blaming it on his brother when he was five years old.]]
* NoSongForTheWicked: General Butt Fucking Naked doesn't get a song.
* NoRomanticResolution: Nabulungi never actually hooks up with Cunningham, despite having a flirtatious, subtext-heavy relationship with him.
* OhCrap:
** You can tell that the music does this we learn Elder Price and Elder Cunningham's mission location is..... Uganda! Yes, ''that'' Uganda. It involves a RecordNeedleScratch.
** When Elder Cunningham is told by Elder Price that "[[ClusterFBomb Hasa Diga Eebowai]]" means "Fuck you, God", and realizes he's said this several times.
** When Elder Cunningham is reading the actual Book of Mormon to the Ugandans (who are bored out their minds) and gets to the part where God strikes the "wicked Lamanites" and turns their skin dark...and everyone suddenly looks up at him with {{death glare}}s.
-->'''Cunningham''': (nervous laughter) You know what? Let's uh...skip that part...
* OminousLatinChanting: Parodied during Spooky Mormon Hell Dream, in which we have "Rectus! Dominus! Spookytus! Deus! Creepytus!"
* OneThingLedToAnother: Elder [=McKinley=] in "Turn it Off" has the line, "One thing led to another, and soon I would discover [[HoYay I was having very strange feelings for Steve]]."
* OpinionChangingDream: Spooky Mormon Hell Dream. It works this way for Price, and other Elders seem to imply that it's actually a fairly common occurrence.
* OverprotectiveDad: Hatimbi towards Nabulungi. From ''Hasa Diga Eebowai'', we have the line "...She's all I have left in the world. And if either of you lays a hand on her....''drumbeat'' [[BlackComedyRape I will give you my AIDS]]!"
* PrecisionFStrike:
** Yes, even in a musical filled with the word, there's a precision strike during "Joseph Smith American Moses": "Compassion! Courtesy! [[HypocriticalHumor Let's be really fucking polite to everyone!]]" (Also, arguably, "Take these fucking golden plates!")
** Also, in the middle of "I Believe", when Elder Price comes prancing into Butt Fucking Naked's headquarters, his response is "...The fuck is this?"
** At the end of the show, [[HumiliationConga after]] [[BreakTheHaughty constant]] [[TraumaCongaLine problems]] during his mission, Elder Price drops his GoshDangItToHeck and delivers a nice big "You know what, guys? ''Fuck him.''" [[spoiler:"Him" in this case refers to the Mission President, who just declared the Ugandan mission disbanded in failure and disgrace thanks to Elder Cunningham's embarrassing cavalcade of {{Ass Pull}}s.]]
* RageAgainstTheHeavens: "[[ClusterFBomb Hasa Diga Eebowai]]", literally, "Fuck you, god!" as well as its DarkReprise.
* {{Reconstruction}}: The musical ultimately becomes this about religion as a whole.
* RecordScratch: In "Two by Two".
--> "And your mission location is... Uganda!" ''[RecordScratch]''
* RedBaron: The BigBad is called General "Butt Fucking Naked" because, in his own words, "When I kill my enemies and drink their blood, I do it [[PunctuatedForEmphasis butt. Fucking.]] ''[[FullFrontalAssault Naked!]]''"
* RockMeAsmodeus: "Spooky Mormon Hell Dream" has a very hard rock/metal sound, and Satan appears playing the guitar halfway through the song.
* RunningGag:
** The doctor shouting, "I have maggots in my scrotum" at very irrelevant points. Has a TriumphantReprise to close the musical.
** Elder [=McKinley=]'s TransparentCloset.
** Elder Cunningham messing up Nabulungi's name.
* ScrewThisImOuttaHere: During "Man Up," Elder Price decides to abandon the mission and go to where he originally hoped to be assigned: Orlando.
* SexAsARiteOfPassage: "Baptize Me" parodies this, with a storm of {{Double Entendre}}s.
* SharePhrase: At various points in the musical, something either will be, or is ''something incredible''
-->'''The Doctor''': Something incredible. You've done something incredible! I have never seen a rectal blockage of this kind!
* ShoutOut: Due to the show's nature as a parody, there are a lot of music shout-outs.
** "Joseph Smith American Moses" is a homage to "The Small House of Uncle Thomas" from ''Theatre/TheKingAndI''.
** Also, "You And Me (But Mostly Me)" seems to be a parody of "The Wizard and I" from ''Theatre/{{Wicked}}''. It also has similar chords to "Defying Gravity".
** "I Believe" has an opening that parodies "I Have Confidence" from ''Theatre/TheSoundOfMusic''.
** A chunk of "All American Prophet" has Elder Price imitating Robert Preston's sing-talking from ''Theatre/TheMusicMan'', while the rest of it is a shout-out to another Joseph: ''Theatre/JosephAndTheAmazingTechnicolorDreamcoat''.
** Also in "All American Prophet," Elder Price describes Joseph Smith as having "a little Donny Osmond flair"; Osmond played Joseph in a direct-to-video film of the latter musical (and had an extended run in the role for the stage production during the 1990s). Osmond is also a Mormon.
** Cunningham, as he keeps making up entries in the titular book, tries convincing the disbelieving Ugandans, says what is essentially a cleaned-up version of Cartman's signature BS catchphrase[[WesternAnimation/SouthPark "Eehw mahi gawd, guys, no wai!"]]
** Though a parody of the IWantSong in general, "Sal Tlay Ka Siti" seems to specifically be a parody of "Somewhere That's Green" from ''Theatre/LittleShopOfHorrors''.
** "Hasa Diga Eebowai" parodies "[[Disney/TheLionKing Hakuna Matata]]". Elder Cunningham even asks the Ugandans, "Does it mean no worries for the rest of our days?"
** During "Hasa Diga Eebowai", when Hatimbi reaches the "aaaaaaaa ... Wonderful disposition" part of the song and describes Nabulungi, both the text and his vocal timbre become a shout-out to ''Theatre/LesMiserables''.
** During "Making Things Up Again", [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings hobbits, Mordor]], [[Franchise/StarWars Yoda, and Boba Fett]] all are referenced, and one of the ghosts/voices in Elder Cunningham's head that we see in the background during the song is [[Franchise/StarTrek Uhura]].
** The "Orlando" chorus in "Two by Two" and "Man Up" is a blatant shout-out to "Tomorrow" from ''Theatre/{{Annie}}''.
** "Two by Two" itself has musical similarities with "Our Time" from ''MerrilyWeRollAlong''.
* ShownTheirWork: The creators did their homework about Mormon theology. Then again, some artistic license was necessary.
* ShowWithinAShow: Joseph Smith, American Moses.
* SkywardScream: Subverted/parodied in "Joseph Smith American Moses" when Smith dies in this version. Brigham Young goes, [[spoiler:"DESPERATION! MORTALITY! LOSS OF FAITH! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHIIIIIIII... got the golden plates!"]]
* SmugSnake: Elder Price has shades of this at first.
* StepfordSmiler: The Mormons. Best displayed in the song "Turn it Off."
* TitleDrop: In "Hello".
* TriumphantReprise:
** "Hasa Diga Eebowai" is reprised as "Thank You God" during "Joseph Smith American Moses" and the reprise of "Hello."
** The already upbeat "I Believe" is briefly reprised as part of the even more optimistic "Tomorrow Is a Latter Day".
* UnfortunateImplications: In-universe: "And if I want to get [to Paradise], I just have to follow that white boy!"
* [[VoiceOfTheLegion Voice Of The Devil]]: '''[[spoiler: KEVIN PRIIIIIIIIIIIICE!!! You broke the rules, Elder... Your soul belongs to ME now! YOU NOW DWELL IN ETERNAL FLAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAME!]]'''
* WellDoneSonGuy: Elder Cunningham.
-->"Together, we're gonna bring lots of Africans to the church! And then my dad will finally feel proud of me, instead of just feeling stuck with me."
* WhamLine: Midway through "Hasa Diga Eebowai", all the lighting but a few spotlights abruptly cuts out and the villagers stand in a straight line across the front of the stage, [[BreakingTheFourthWall point directly at the audience]], and sing:
--> "If you don't like what we say, try living here a couple days! Watch all your friends and family die--hasa diga Eebowai!"
* WhatTheHellHero, The Song: "Spooky Mormon Hell Dream"
-->'''Elder Price:''' "I can't believe Jesus called me a [[PrecisionFStrike diiiiiiick!]]"
* WideEyedIdealist: Elder Price and Nabulungi. Both end up putting on JadeColoredGlasses during the course of the story, especially Price. They both get better though.
