Awesome / South Park


For moments specific to a particular entry, go to the following:

The Four Boys (Stan, Cartman, Kyle and Kenny)

  • When Kyle's mother tells him he can go and see the Raging Pussies if he "brings democracy to Cuba". One heartfelt letter to Fidel Castro later...
  • Cartman's epic (and Looney Toon-esque) showdown with Osama Bin Laden in "Osama Bin Laden Has Farty Pants".
    • The original title of that episode was "Osama Bin Laden Has a Small Penis." So yeah.
    • Just the fact the first episode after the terrorist attacks addresses this. Good show buddy. Good show.
  • Cartman's most heroic Moment of Awesome was his defeat of Saddam in The Movie. "RESPECT MY FUCKING AUTHORITAH!"
  • Cartman just got another one with his A Clockwork Orange-style fight with Mosquito. This is a SHOT-FOR-SHOT homage to the Flat Block Marina scene from the movie.
  • In "Casa Bonita" Cartman's mad dash through the titular restaurant surely counts. The police are on his heels, and he manages to sample every attraction in the place in less than 60 seconds. This climaxes with him diving off a waterfall into the pool, where the police finally catch up with him. One of the officers goes, "Well, kid, you've lost all your friends, made us all panic for nothing, and now you're going to Juvenile Hall! Was it worth it?" Cartman responds, "Totally."
  • Kyle gets his during the Christmas adventure in Canada. After Cartman keeps threatening to beat him up for causing him to miss Christmas, Kyle hits him once... and he starts bawling.
    • Another time, at the end of "Kenny Dies", Kyle and Stan discover Cartman used the stem cells to replicate his favorite restaurant instead of using them to save Kenny. Kyle proceeds to beat the crap out of him and Stan calls him Kenny's worst friend, and neither suffer repercussions.
  • After years of telling Cartman not to, Kyle finally calls his own mother a bitch in "Fun With Veal".
  • Stan gets one when he takes on John Edward in "The Biggest Douche in the Universe". Sure, it's a little anvilicious, but some anvils need to be dropped.
    • Stan just got another in "Whale Whores", when he shoots a flare gun at a Japanese whaling ship and blows up its fuel tanks and then turns a sloppy reality show into a hardcore vigilante group.
  • Cartman blasting a Slayer CD over Woodstock-size speakers to drive away hippies.
    • Which he reached by mowing down a whole group of them with a giant drill.
  • Cartman brings back old-school piracy by hijacking a ship. With TOYS. "Now *that's* a pirate ship." He goes on to turn the vicious, bloodthirsty Somali pirates who tried to ransom him off into his loyal, shanty-singing crew (complete with Awesome Music seen here) and for a few glorious days actually lives the life of a romantic-era pirate captain. Of course, South Park being what it is, this doesn't stick... although in this situation, it was because of an anvil that needed dropping coupled with Reality Ensues.
  • "It doesn't matter who we are. What matters is our plan. You should have respected my authoritah."
  • Kyle's bleep-coated rant against the visitors in Cartman Gets an Anal Probe, the very first episode. Sure, tame compared to these examples, but I've had a soft spot for Kyle ever since.
  • When the head of NAMBLA tries to make a point about tolerance and acceptance for people like himself, Kyle shuts him down the best and only way one can:
    Stan: Yeah! You know, we believe in equality for everybody and tolerance, and all that gay stuff, but dude, fuck you.
  • Cartman gets one in "The F Word" he approaches a bunch of very loud and annoying bikers, who are talking to one another...
    Cartman: You know everyone in town thinks you guys are fags?
    Biker Leader: Well, that's just how we roll! And if people are annoyed or scared by that-
    Cartman: No, nobody is scared. Because they know that the only people that need to be so loud and pathetic for attention is you, and teenage girls. Just wanted you to know, you guys are fucking fags. (walks away)
    Random Biker: ...That little boy just called us fags.
  • How about in "The Return of Chef!", when the Super Adventure Club's security is leading the boys out the door to prevent them from saving Chef, and Kyle grabs the first object in sight and whacks both guards? Went by unnoticed, but that's got to count for something.
    • That was nothing compared to Kenny somehow propelling himself across the room to deliver a headbutt into the guards crotch.
  • In the episode Coon 2: Hindsight when Cartman is grounded, because it was a very powerful moment for Mrs. Cartman.
  • This gets topped in the next episode, "Mysterion Rises", where it's revealed that Mysterion does have an actual superpower... because he's Kenny, he can't die. This is a simultaneous instance of Moment of Awesome, Funny Moments, Fridge Brilliance, Fridge Horror, and Cursed with Awesome, since nobody else can remember his deaths.
    • Screw punching out Cthulhu, Cartman freakin' TAMED Cthulhu!
    • Then, in the next episode, Mintberry Crunch defeated Cthulhu with the power of mint and berries.
    • Most of Cartman's and Cthulhu's murdering spree is both awesome and hilarious, but their massacre of Justin Bieber and his fans stands out.
    • In the same episode, the Oh, Crap! look on everyone's face when they realize that Cartman is controlling Cthulhu, who promptly banishes them to another dimension. Later, even this gets topped by Kenny's massive tirade against Cartman.
      You little fucking prick! What is wrong with you?! What kind of sick fuck does that to his friends?!
    • In fact, all of Kenny's confrontation of Cartman counts.
      Cartman: It's not my fault you guys turned evil, Kenny!
      Kenny: You are the bad guy, Cartman! YOU!
      Cartman: I'm makin' the world a better place!
      Kenny: FOR YOU! You're making it a better place FOR YOU!
      Cartman: *beat* Riight, that's what superheroes do.
      Kenny: No. This is what superheroes do...
    • The whole Coon trilogy can be considered a crowning moment of awesome for Kenny, even. Good-freaking-luck looking at him the same in earlier episodes now.
    • The fact that he called Cthulhu "pussy" and "wuss" only makes it better.
    • Arguably Cartman turning down Kenny's dare and "Cute Kitten" Cthulhu back to his rampage also counts, marking the second time he has outsmarted Mysterion.
    Cartman: Fuuck yoou, Kennnyy!
  • In "It's a Jersey Thing", Kyle pins Cartman against a tree by his throat and threatens him to never again insinuate that he is from New Jersey. Seeing Cartman crying afterwards really made up for some of his Karma Houdini tendencies.
    • HOW can you forget later when Kyle turns into Kyley-B and saves Cartman from being raped by Snookie?
  • How about "Make Love Not Warcraft"? As Stan and the others defeat the guy with no life's avatar?
  • In T.M.I, Cartman gives what is perhaps the greatest combination of Character Development, Disproportionate Retribution, Tranquil Fury and Magnificent Bastard This Troper has ever seen. Basically, a therapist is trying to figure out if Cartman has anger issues. He BOMBARDS Cartman with fat jokes, something that would usually make Cartman go ballistic. But Cartman just sits there, texting on his phone. So the therapist is just about to conclude that Cartman is the most even-tempered child he's ever met, when a secretary shows up and tells the therapist that his wife is on the phone. His wife, apparently very distraught, begins asking him about a criminal record involving an underage girl provided to her via a text from someone named Mitch Conner. She offs herself on the spot, leaving the shocked therapist staring at Cartman, who simply glares at him and says "I'm not fat. I'm big-boned." Character Development at it's finest! In fact, that itself echoes the events of "Scott Tenorman Must Die", in the sense that it shows: don't provoke Eric Cartman.
  • Mysterion's return in The Poor Kid. When the McCormick children are sent to live with strict Agnostic parents, Kenny, as Mysterion, consoles his sister and beats a bully within an inch of her life when she tries to bully her.
    • For me, the true CMOA of that episode is that they actually acknowledged Karen McCormick's existence, after so many years!
    • Let's not forget when Kenny, in response to the foster parents dousing their foster children in Dr. Pepper for not living up to their agnostic beliefs, takes advantage of the fact that Cartman alerted the Child Protective Services, replaces their Dr. Pepper with beer, and gets them arrested.
  • "More Crap": Stan gets a minor one when he tells Bono "At some point, can't you just kind of... fuck off?" when he mentions everything else Bono has.
  • "You Have 0 Friends": "Fuck off, Dad."
  • From "Tonsil Trouble" "I am going to break everything that you own." And Kyle proceeds to do just that!
  • From "Faith Hilling", Cartman's amazing public display of defiance towards other memeing trends and proclamations of loyalty to the titular meme. IN SONG.
  • "A Nightmare On Facetime", the boys, dressed as the Avengers, attempt to go into action, when they spot the Kum & Go store being robbed, even if they do bail out a moment later.
    • Kenny, who we are able to hear clearly throughout the episode, gives tactical orders behind the voice-changing Iron Man mask; considering his leadership skills as Mysterion, there's something undeniably cool about that.
  • As horrible as it was, Eric Cartman's disproportionate retribution in the episode "Scott Tenorman Must Die".
    Cartman: Oh, let me taste your tears! The tears of unfathomable sadness!
    • The way Scott just stares at Cartman as he explains everything (which surely the audience is also doing) makes it even more awesome.
  • In "Two Days Before the Day After Tomorrow", Cartman won't allow Kyle onto the helicopter until he gives him his "Jew gold". He takes it out...and proceeds to throw it into the fire to piss him off!
  • In "Fun With Veal", the boys are keeping baby cows safe. Cartman is actually pretty decent in this episode, since before the other boys can mess anything up, he takes on the negotiator. The boys at first think he's gonna hand over a calf, and then...
    Negociator: How about we make a trade, just show that we can trust each other.
    Cartman: What do you have in mind?
    Negociator: Well, how about you send out one of the calves?
    Cartman: Oh, Mike, you're breakin' my balls here, Mike.
    Negociator: Just one, that's all we want.
    Cartman: All right, how 'bout this? You guys have all the leverage and we have nothing. So how about we give you one calf...
    Stan: Cartman, no!
    Kyle: Dude!
    Cartman: [holds out his palm to silence them and clears his throat] We'll give you one calf, if you give us... some guns and ammunition of our own.
    Negociator: What? I, I can't do that.
    Cartman: Oh, I'm sorry. I thought we were talkin' here, but I guess you're not talkin' to me. Goodbye.
    Negociator: No no wait, oh, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Y-you're right. What reason do you have to trust me? I'm just a guy from Lakewood trying to make ends meet, you know? Just a blue-collar guy like your dad.
    Cartman: Don't have a dad, Mike. That's not gonna work.
    Negociator: Oh. All right, fine, son of a gun, let me see what I can do.
    • The best moment for me had to be when he got a crate of ammunition and weapons into the room, and while he's negotiating, you see Kyle and Butters assembling a couple of weapons in the background. Thanks to Cartman, they lasted six days, kept all the calves with them, and got everything they wanted (except North and South Dakota). That's longer than most hostage situations last. And I never did see them give back those weapons...
    • Plus, thanks to having Cartman around, they even get food supplies through his mom, who goes as soft on him as ever. For once, this is an episode where Cartman really pulls his weight because he knows how to play the grown-ups too.
  • In "Titties and Dragons" Bill Gates and the founder of Sony arrive at Red Robins while the fourth graders are there during the war over video game consoles. It turns out that Stan contacted them because he was sick of seeing everyone else fight, ultimately ending the war.
    Stan: You want a war so bad? [tosses the Sony executive his little wooden sword] Then you fuckin' fight.
  • In "Wacky Molestation Adventure" Stan gets his parents framed for molestation. Though a Kick the Dog for Stan, seconds later Shelly raises her fist ready to beat the crap out of him, before he sends the police onto her as well. Perhaps the only moment in the show Stan has successfully gotten revenge on his usually unstoppable abusive sister.
  • In "Safe Space", Kyle is ordered to either filter the negative comments out of Cartman's Twitter feed or face detention. Kyle takes the detention without question. Wendy follows immediately afterward. Neither character will betray their principles just so Cartman can avoid getting his feelings hurt.
    • A similar instance in "The Death Camp Of Tolerance" is where Chef learns that Mr. Garrison has been performing sexual acts in his class with Mr. Slave and tells Principal Victoria. Though in the process, he calls him a sick queer and is threatened with being sent to a tolerance seminar unless he apologizes. Chef's response is "Kiss my black ass."
  • Every time Kenny survives a episode, especially in earlier seasons where they were very rare.
  • A number of Kenny's Heroic Sacrifices are considered this.
  • Cartman & Kyle teaming up and raiding an Airport Hilton to take down Miss Stevenson in "Miss Teacher Bangs A Boy".
    • Cartman busting Miss Stevenson and Ike in the same episode.
    Cartman: You like bear mace ice head?
    Miss Stevenson: Bear mace?
    Cartman: You're going with Christ. (maces her)
  • Just when it seems like Gerald is going to get away with framing Ike, Kyle puts together all that he knows about skankhunt42 and realises that his dad is the troll.
  • In "Wing", the boys make the Chinese Mafia do a Heel–Face Turn just by talking.
  • The sarcastically incisive Aesop from "201", particularly when weighed against the sad, sick irony of Comedy Central censoring the entire thing due to threats of violence and then feverishly working to keep the uncut video off the Internet:
    Kyle: "You see, I've learned something today. Throughout this whole ordeal, we've all wanted to show things that we weren't allowed to show, but it wasn't because of some magic goo; it was because of the magical power of threatening people with violence. That's obviously the only true power! If there's anything we all learned, it's that terrorizing people works!"
    Jesus: "That's right! Don't you see, gingers? If you don't want to be made fun of anymore, all you need are guns and bombs to get people to stop!"
    Santa: "That's right, friends. All you need to do is instill fear and be willing to hurt people, and you can get whatever you want! The only true power... is violence!"
  • In "Not Funny" Kyle is able to control the highest ranking member of the US government just by being what he's always been, a kid who's much smarter than his teacher.
  • In "Franchise Prequel", the way the boys (and the rest of Coon & Friends) take down Mark Zuckerberg is very impressive. Kyle, Jimmy, and Token fight Zuckerberg in the middle of main street and get in a few good hits before they are beaten by him. But then, Cartman goes into a monologue about how the three of them were protesters trying to promote justice for black people, the handicapped, and Jews that Zuckerberg took down. Zuckerberg tells him that's not true to which Cartman points to the side to reveal Craig filmed the whole thing on Facebook Live and the video is going viral. Zuckerberg is forced to take down the site, foiling Professor Chaos's plan.
  • In “Doubling Down” Cartman actually challenges Kyle into a fight, even pushing him against a locker, the moment Heidi starts dating him after breaking up with Cartman. Considering how afraid Cartman is of physical confrontation, and against the guy who hates him the most, that’s pretty impressive.
    • Kyle later steals the moment by knocking out Cartman with one punch to the jaw while avoiding Cartman’s punch. It’s impressive as PC Principal had to beat Cartman bloody before he could knock him out and Wendy couldn’t knock him out despite beating him to a bloody pulp.
    • After Heidi dumped Kyle in three episodes prior, she mocks him about it when the group wants to help him find Ike. Kyle gets fed up and shuts her down with a sentence that makes her realize how far she's sunk.
    Kyle: I would never have the hots for the person you are now.
  • A massive YMMV moment, but Cartman as a whole during "Obama Wins". Even Stan lampshades how impressive it was for Cartman managing to steal thousands of voter ballots without being caught.

Butters Stotch

  • Butters gets one in "AWESOM-O" (rather apt title, isn't it?): when Cartman's robot disguise is revealed after a bloody stand-off with the military, Butters makes good on the promise he'd made earlier in the episode: he shows a video of Cartman dancing around dressed like Britney Spears not only to the South Park residents... but also to the Hollywood executives, scientists and military officers they'd encountered earlier. He's dancing around with the biggest smile on his face while everyone else is laughing, and all Cartman can say is "Lame!" GOOD END.
    • Heck, Trey and Matt deserve applause here. Usually, an episode is completed in a week. But this episode was completed in three days! EPIC WIN.
  • Butters got another one in "Super Fun Time". After being selected as Cartman's buddy on the field trip, being instructed to not to let go of his hand, and spending the whole episode being dragged along as Cartman left the tour, he finally gets him to agree to come back and finds the mock colonial village has been taken over by thieves with machine-guns. He then uses Cartman as a flail, fleeing gunfire until he shows up at the end dragging an unconscious Cartman up onto the bus, declaring "Teacher, my partner is back on the bus", as he finally lets go of his hand and faints.
  • Butters had yet another moment at the end of an episode where Stan, inconsolable after breaking up with Wendy, joins the Goth Kids. Butters endured a similar situation, but fended off the Goths with:
    Butters: Well yeah, and I'm sad, but at the same time I'm really happy that something could make me feel that sad. It's like, it makes me feel alive, you know? It makes me feel human. And the only way I could feel this sad now is if I felt somethin' really good before. So I have to take the bad with the good, so I guess what I'm feelin' is like a, beautiful sadness. I guess that sounds stupid. Besides, I'd rather be a crying little pussy than a faggy goth kid.
  • He got yet another one in "Butters' Bottom Bitch" when he becomes a pimp. The fact that he went from... Butters (he's become a synonym for being a pussy) to being a full on Pimp (with a capital P) is enough.
    • Does the fact that he spent the whole time thinking his girls are only selling kisses and hugs (even the actual prostitutes that signed up with him later) make it more or less awesome?
    • I don't know, but the scene where he goes to a Pimp convention and gets tips from them, noting it all down, is extremely awesome. And so is when prostitutes were starting to advertise him around their social circles as a respectful pimp who never beats his bitches.
  • His most awesome moment has to be being a complete Badass in The Last of the Meheecans. He makes all the Mexicans realize that they all really want to go home and starts some kind of revolution, becomes their LEADER, and then crosses the American border whilst being chased by Cartman. Badass. Butters approaches the border and border patrol is all too willing to let him in, since Americans are too lazy to do menial labor and want Mexicans to do it for them. However, Cartman is not happy to see him and Butters even looks at him and says "Game on!" as if he were taunting Cartman that he will make it through no matter what. A chase scene ensues with Cartman going through any means necessary to keep Butters from crossing the border and though border patrol is on Butter's side, Cartman is still relentless in his pursuit. The Crowning Moment comes when Cartman finally catches up to Butters and tackles him to the ground only to realize too late that it was a decoy using a Mantequilla piñata and that Butters had successfully climbed over the border gate. Every Mexican in North America and the border police cheer as he makes it through.
  • Butters in the Imaginationland special. Especially since survived the a goddamn nuke, and in the process reformed of recreating Imagination land, resurrected his friends from the real world.
  • Butters gets another one near the end of "Cartman Sucks"¯. A misunderstanding leads to him being sent to "Pray the Gay Away" camp, where he is repeatedly told that he's "confused" and needs to be "fixed"¯. Finally, he snaps and tells off the entire camp staff plus his dad.
    Butters: All right, that does it! I am sick and tired of everyone telling me I'm confused! I wasn't confused until other people started tellin' me I was! You know what I think? I think maybe you are the ones who are confused!... I'm not gonna be confused anymore just because you say I should be! My name is Butters, I'm eight years old, I'm blood type O, and I'm bi-curious! And even that's okay! Because if I'm bi-curious, and I'm somehow made from God, then I think your God must be a little bi-curious himself!
    • This troper thinks the above is Butters' best moment ever.
  • He gets ANOTHER moment near the end of "Butters' Very Own Episode" when he gives his parents a "The Reason You Suck" Speech to stop their fighting:
    Butters: Now gosh darn it, you! [steps in between his parents] You listen here! Now I am sick of these harmless lies and l-little white lies. You know, you can call a shovel an ice-cream machine, but it's still a shovel, Mom and Dad. Ah, and you can call a lie whatever you want, but it's still a no-good stinkin' lie! And when you start coverin' up one lie with another why, now that's when you get into real trouble! [Chris and Linda listen] Boy, I've, I've just about had it up to here [puts his right hand to his chin, palm down] with you two!
    • And then they feel bad and give him the love he deserves. Kind of.
      • By the amount of entries for him on this page, Butters is actually the most badass character in the show. He has more than Cartman!
  • Butters gets another one in "The Tale of Scrotie McBoogerballs" when the rest of the kids, thinking they'll get in trouble for writing such a dirty book, convince everyone that he wrote it (including Butters himself) — and it becomes a runaway success. Then, when he's confronted by the boys, he blows them off and tells them that they can go suck on his wiener. He gets another one for writing the sequel, which, though it was clean enough for us to hear it, was dirty for his standards. The kicker? Up until a reader kills the Kardashian sisters, it's just as heavily praised as the original book with readers raving about how he had gone back to his roots.
    • Some see this less as Butters' Moment of Awesome and more as a massive Take That! to Literary Scholars.
      • It is at least a Moment of Awesome for having Butters finally turn the tables on the boys, who constantly bullied or manipulated him into their schemes while acting as their fourth friend, not only does their using of Butters get completely turned against them but Butters finally stands up for himself and tells them to shove it when they try to blame it on him again.
      Kyle: Butters, do you really think it's fair to lie like this?! Let me tell you, if you don't have—!
      Butters: *snaps* No! Let me tell you something, fellas!! You always take advantage of me. And after reading Catcher in the Rye, I've learned you're nothing but phonies! I'm not letting you trick me this time. So the four of you can just suck on my wiener.
      *storms off, leaving the other boys speechless*
      Cartman: *beat* That inconsiderate jerk...
  • Butters' "The Reason You Suck" Speech to his grandmother, late at night, and her silent reactions throughout it:
    "Grandma? I did it grandma, I finally stood up for myself, I got real mean and I beat the snot out of Dr. Oz. I can't lie, it felt kind of good at first, but since then all I have is this kind of dark empty feeling, and then I realized, that's how you must feel, all the time. Poor old grandma, you know, I've been getting lots of advice on how to deal with you, stand up to you, tell on you, but I kind of realize that there's just people like you out there, all over the place. When you're a kid, things seem like they're going to last forever, but they're not, life changes. You won't always be around, someday you're going to die, someday pretty soon, and when you're laying in that hospital bed, with tubes up your nose, and that little pan under your butt to pee in, I'll come visit you. I'll come just to show you that I'm still alive and I'm still happy, and you'll die, being nothing but you... Night grandma!
    • Writers tend to forget that if you could ignore your bully, expose them, stand up to them, or find help, you would. That's why it's bullying; it makes you powerless. And you know what makes me so sure that somebody on the writing squad must have had experience? People tell you to fight back. You fight back, and then everybody gets angry at you because deep down they don't actually give a rat's ass. And Butters' conclusion? The writers don't have the gall to tell you that the bullying is going to stop now, nor that Butters is simply going to ignore it. Nor is he going to simply put it behind him. Grandma doesn't get punished, but she isn't shown to mend her ways. He just tells her calmly and in private, that he's going to be there when she dies. And that he's going to be happy. Her own grandson will be happy when she dies. And he leaves her to think about that. That really touched us.
    • The completely broken, empty look of sadness on his grandma by the end of it only sells it further. She knows she's unhappy and weak and soon to die, and even worse, now her victim does, and vows to milk it for all it's worth.
  • Butter's setup of the joke in "Reverse Cowgirl" as he is proven right;
    Well, I always thought you sat this way (facing inward on the seat.) Then you have the flusher right there and that little shelf for your comic book and chocolate milk.
    • Butters is a walking CMOA. If he has a major role at all in an episode he will have at least one of these.
  • Butter sinking an entire ocean liner with a golf ball.
    • From the same episode, Butters dropping a huge "The Reason You Suck" Speech on a majority of the class minus Kenny. Most notable targets being Cartman, Stan, and Kyle. He even outright snaps at his dad to shut up.
  • "Gluten Free Ebola" reveals that Butters was expelled after he managed to burn down South Park Elementary's gymnasium prior to the events of the episode. He was also noted to have run off in a laughing fit, flipping the bird to everyone he passed.
  • While under the influence that everything was Virtual Reality... Butters FINALLY punched Steven in the balls for grounding him one to many times in "Grounded Vindaloop"
  • "Wieners Out": It doesn't matter if you believe in his cause or not. Seeing Butters not only choosing his own way of thinking but rallying every boy up in spite of Kyle's objections is a huge step up from the pushover we're so used to seeing.

South Park Elementary Students/Faculty/Staff

  • Wendy Testaburger in "Tom's Rhinoplasty". You want disproportionate retribution? How about hiring foreign mercenaries to stuff the substitute teacher whom you believe (completely wrongly) is stealing your boyfriend into a rocket and launch her, bewildered and terrified, to a flaming death in the heart of THE FREAKIN' SUN??? Cartman has got nothing on that. "I WARNED her. Don't... fuck... with... Wendy... TESTABURGER!!!!" [Scare Chord]
  • Token got his crowning moment at the end of "Christian Rock Hard", where after having to deal with Cartman being... well, Cartman for the entire episode, finally snaps and beats the crap out of him in possibly the swiftest, most efficient asskicking Cartman has ever received.
    • And Cartman is then farted on by Butters, with the words "Fuck you, Eric."
  • Wendy beating the shit out of Cartman in the climax of "Breast Cancer Show Ever".
    • And if you're paying attention to the fight scene references during her No-Holds-Barred Beatdown of Cartman, you'll know that she's the equivalent of Brad Pitt from Snatch. and Daniel Day Lewis from There Will Be Blood at the same fucking time.
    • Don't forget the Principal's speech that inspired Wendy to stand up for herself and fight Cartman.
      Principal Victoria: [After revealing she is a breast cancer survivor] Cancer is... pure evil. It is a fat little lump that needs to be... destroyed. When there is a cancer, you have to fight it. You can't reason with cancer; you can't wish it away. Cancer doesn't play by the rules so neither can you.
      Wendy: ...My parents said that if I fight-
      Principal Victoria: And you can't listen to what anyone else has to tell you. You have to be willing to give up everything because the cancer will take everything. Do you understand?
      Wendy: [firmly] Yes, ma'am.
      Principal Victoria: When you have cancer you fight, because it doesn't matter if you beat it or not; you refuse to let that fat little lump make you feel powerless.
      • The only thing that could have made that speech more awesome, is if Principal Victoria had said something about cancer spreading... because you can see assorted kids starting to support and believe Cartman because Wendy won't fight him.
    • And how she first managed to scare Cartman shitless in the first place - "I'm going to shove your ass down your throat and make you eat your underwear!" He actually does it, hoping it will appease her.note 
  • Craig just pretty much had a two-parter dedicated to Moments of Awesome as he mercilessly ragged on the main boys for always getting themselves into terrible situations before accidentally saving the day at the end. By shooting laser beams out of his eyes.
    • This scene is then followed by Craig's utterly deadpan monologue/epilogue, detailing the aftermath of the incident as a Pan Flute Cover of Gary Numan's Cars plays in the background.
  • The Goth kids, tired of being confused with the 'wannabe fag vamp kids' decide to do something about it. First they kidnap the leader and mail him to another town, then when that doesn't work they find the Hot Topic that has been selling all the vampire clothes and burn it to the ground, thus ridding South Park of vampires. Right at the end they give a speech to the rest of the class on the difference between Goths and Vamps. It ends with riotous applause from the crowd. They reply by flipping the assembly off. The Goth kids are just plain awesome in that episode.
    • The Goth kids are just Moment of Awesome machines. In the episode "You Got F'd in the A", the kids are looking for dancing talent to show up a group of other kids who got them "served." They ask the Goth kids, who one by one explain that they'll never join the troupe because they're non-conformist - until they ask the last one, who says that he's so non-conformist that he'll ditch his Goth friends and join the troupe after all. As the troupe leaves, one of the remaining Goth kids says, "we just got Goth-served."
  • Wendy turning the tables on Cartman in "Dances with Smurfs". For the entire episode, Cartman has been slamming her school presidency, calling her a slut and a Smurf killer, showing fake footage of her destroying the Smurf village. Her response? Confess that she indeed destroyed the Smurf village. It's much better than it sounds, though, since by going along with Cartman's story, she completely rips Cartman's phony story up, and even makes it sound like he was actually involved in the annihilation of the Smurfs by painting him as a spy. At the end, she makes Cartman the president, showing him what exactly a school president is capable of: absolutely nothing. Not only that, it takes away his job as morning announcer and he's forced to listen to the new announcer criticize his presidency. Hoist by His Own Petard, indeed.
    • A related Moment of Awesome comes when Wendy shocks Cartman by telling him that she already sold the movie rights to Cartman's phony, cliched story about living with the Smurfs, and even tells him that it's in theaters right now. The next scene: cue Cartman screaming out of a theater showing Avatar.
      • In a meta-sense, Trey & Matt absolutely nailing Avatar's plot with their parody over a month before the film was released.
    • Principal Victoria finally having it with Cartman and his slander of Wendy.
    "Eric, I've had enough of this! You can not and you will not sell you books on school grounds! DO I MAKE MYSELF CLEAR?!?!?"
    • Even before she turns the tables on Cartman, you gotta hand it to Wendy for deciding to handle the slander by ignoring so as not to give Cartman the satisfaction of upsetting her. It finally took Butters peeing on her house (and her dad) for her to finally break and even then she remained totally calm throughout it.
      • In fact, throughout this episode its Stan that sounds more angry at Cartman slandering Wendy than Wendy herself, although by this time Stan's pretty much angry at Cartman for practically doing anything.
  • Hell, out of all the Goth kids KINDERGOTH is the most badass out of them.
  • Clyde, in defiance to his deceased mom, puts the toilet seat back up and flips off at the heavens!
  • Mr. Garrison owning Shaila with this zinger.
    Sheila: This is an offense to the Jewish community.
    Mr. Garrison: You ARE the Jewish community.
  • Bridon Gueermo punches out his abusive dad, who controls his family by threatening to slap them.
  • In "Follow That Egg!", when Cartman refuses to take a replacement egg after breaking his:
    Mrs. Garrison: Eric, you've never been anything but a problem for me! You're taking that egg! And if you break it again, I'll break both your legs, and burn down your house!
  • Tweek gets one in "Free Hat". Despite being terrified, he goes to rescue Stan, Kyle and Cartman from Steven Spielberg. Wielding a bazooka, he threatens to blow up Spielberg's updated edit of The Temple of Doom unless the boys are released.
    Tweek: ...except for Cartman. You can keep him.
    Cartman: HEY!!
  • The scene in "Fourth Grade" where Mr. Garrison comes to terms with his sexuality. It's hilarious, but it becomes surprisingly powerful.
    Mr. Garrison: ALL RIGHT, ALL RIGHT, I ADMIT IT! I'M GAY! I'm... gay. I'm gay! I am gay! You hear that, everyone? I'm gay! I'm gay! I'm gay and it... and it feels good.
  • David the Mexican student stands up to Cartman after his threats of giving his parents' restaurant a one-star review lose water.
    "My name... is Daveed."
  • In "The Hobbit", after all of the cheerleading squad has made fake pictures of themselves, they start to gang up on Wendy, who hasn't. Wendy epically calls them out on their own delusions.
    Wendy: The problem with having fake pictures of yourself, is that you start to believe in your own bullshit!
  • Everything Jimmy does in "Sponsored Content" is amazing.
    • He outright refuses to censor himself or the school paper just because PC Principal doesn't want to see the word "retarded" in it. When PC Principal tells him that he'll need to approve the paper before Jimmy starts handing it out at school, Jimmy then goes around the neighborhood handing the paper out to students at their homes. After several episodes of him getting away with things from beating up Cartman for minor transgressions to driving Butters to attempt suicide for maintaining a "Safe Space" for insecure people, it is very satisfying to see someone stand up to PC Principal, and there is nothing he can do about it.
    Jimmy: (while flipping the bird) S-s-s-s-s-s-suck my dick, PC Principal!
    • For bonus points, the headline of the first paper he delivers to everyone's homes (including the PC frat house) reads "PC Principal's 'Retarded' Policy".
    • "Actually, I prefer 'handicapped.'"
    • Jimmy takes note on how most of the PC bros act, and writes a story that "PC" actually stands for "Pussy Crushing."
    • A Geico executive appears at Jimmy's door to offer him $21,000,000 for ad space in his paper. Jimmy sticks to his "No ads" policy and refuses, telling him to "St-st-stick it up your ass!" Even when the executive pulls a gun on Jimmy, he still says no.
    • Jimmy's gets a perfect score in a test to discern news from sponsored content, then he realizes that fellow student Leslie is a sentient advertisement.
  • Mr. Garrison calling out the South Park citizens for condoning the lewd acts he performed in front of his class in "Death Camp of Tolerance".
  • Mr. Garrison deciding to swallow his pride and admit to the American people that he's not a good candidate, he doesn't really have a plan and he shouldn't be elected president took a lot of guts. Pity it didn't work.
    • Eventually, Mr. Garrison manages to hit a nerve when he starts making sexist comments. When women start walking out, he mocks them for being selective in their views on political correctness.
  • While the end result wasn't too good, Tweek's acting performance in "Tweek x Craig" is this. The kid is such a good actor that he convinced quite possibly every kid in school (except Craig of course), at the very least, to believe his story and improvised himself around all of Craig's attempts to get things back on script without missing a beat. And considering he earlier in the episode considered himself a terrible actor, he most likely had little to no previous acting training.
  • The ending of "Put It Down". After spending the entire episode freaking out over North Korea and the President, Tweek finally gets over his anxiety with Craig's help. They then create an awesome song that they perform with their classmates urging people not to tweet if they become President of the USA.
  • After having to put up with a rapidly-regressing Cartman for all but two episodes the entire season, and after being converted into another him, in "Splatty Tomato" Heidi finally realizes the truth to herself and can finish the breaking-up with him she needed since the end of Season 20

South Park Residents

      • The fact that a single middle-aged man was able to build a 20 foot wall around the entire city in a matter of days is damn impressive.
      • Not to mention the fact that he managed to keep rebuilding it after the Mongolians kept tearing it down.
  • And the movie was full of awesome moments. From Terrence and Phillip's fart routine in "Uncle Fucker" to Satan finally getting Saddam off his back it was the most epic adventure that Trey and Matt put the boys in.
  • The Boys cheering Randy on to fight the Bat-Dad with the music from Rocky playing. He then proceeds to beat the crap out of him while attempting to sing "The Best Around", followed by one of the only times Stan is ever proud of him. It's Awesome Music & Awesome, Funny, and Heartwarming Moments all around.
  • Randy Marsh ties up and beats the shit out of The Situation.
    • Said beating includes a gratuitous and awesome flip and back kick.
  • Sheila using her authority for good to save Sharon from a pack of New Jersey maniacs in the hair salon.
    • Sheila's plan in the movie also counts because she was able to round up all the mothers to protest against toilet humor, even thought she took it too far.
  • Big Gay Al manages one of his own in "The F Word". After the boys decide to fight to change the definition of "fag" from a pejorative for homosexuals to a term for obnoxious guys riding Harleys, he leads the gay community to rally for the cause. While that itself is awesome, his true Moment of Awesome comes when the bikers raid the town and he stares them down an alley with a shotgun. "You FAGS get the hell out of our town!"
    • There's also the time he gets kicked out of a Boy Scouts-esque organization, leading the kids to pressure Washington to make such bannings based on sexual orientation illegal. They finally are about to do it, but then Al refuses to support them because simply forcing the group to accept homosexuals won't actually make anyone change their minds about the morals of homosexuality, which is what really needs to happen for true equality to exist.
  • Mr. Slave's Moment of Awesome comes in Stupid Spoiled Whore Video Playset, where he finally acts to end the reign of Paris Hilton. After her attempt to prove herself the World's Greatest Slut by ostentatiously dancing provocatively with a group of muscular, near-naked men and then inserting a whole pineapple up her vagina, Mr Slave - who has been watching quietly throughout - walks calmly over to her, leaps in the air, and inserts Paris Hilton herself into his anus. This is made even more awesome when he then flatly lectures the applauding crowd that he shouldn't be applauded for being a slut and people like Paris Hilton are not good role models for little girls. It's a very odd yet strangely moving Moment of Awesome.
  • Liane finally having had enough of Cartman's head games in "HumancentiPad".
  • Ike earns himself a Moment of Awesome by saving the Princess of Canada in "Royal Pudding." Call him Sir Ike from now on.
  • In "It's a Jersey Thing", Sheila standing up against the woman from Jersey who was insulting Sharon.
  • Possible YMMV, but Sharon's speech near the end of "Eat, Pray, Queef". The subject itself sounds silly, but it mentions the Double Standard on how men are allowed to make fart jokes but women can't make jokes about queefing. What makes it particularly awesome is how Stan and Randy change their original view of only men can make fart jokes after hearing it.
  • In "Cherokee Hair Tampons", the livid mothers of South Park find out holistic chemist Miss Information has been conning them with fake medicine (and has been knowingly killing Kyle slowly and painfully with it for the sake of an extra buck). Their response? Surround the very worried looking con artist and beat her senseless.
  • Randy actually giving meaningful advise to his son about valuing friendship that actually plays into the whole class learning An Aesop in "Bebe's Boobs Destroy Society". At least he can say he taught his son something worthwhile.
  • The entire town gets one in "Red Man's Greed". As seen on the page image, the populus marches out of buildings and down the road to the gathering of bulldozers, singing the chorus to "Love is a Battlefield" in Acapella.
  • After sweetly taking her daughter's abuse for so long, Mrs. Biggle's reaction to Henrietta calling her names occurred in one word: Fattie
  • In "You're Not Yelping", the town restaurants are flooded with Yelpers who intimidate restaurants to follow their excessive demands on risk of getting 1 star reviews. Eventually, the Whistlin' Willy's owner decides he has had enough of them and throws every single one of them out of his restaurant. His actions help inspire other restaurants to put the Yelpers in their place and ban them from the stores!
    • The non-Yelper customers get one too by giving Whistlin' Willy a rise in popularity after he kicked all the Yelpers out rather than listen to their reviews.
    • The ending of the episode has them getting some badass (but fucking disgusting) revenge, coupled with a similarly awesome song. Three words: Boogers. And. Cum.
  • Sgt. Yates and the rest of the police refusing to help the townspeople with the homeless problem after all the harassment they received from them.
  • Barbrady, of all people, pulled off a Big Damn Heroes moment in "Sponsored Content" when he saved Jimmy's life by shooting a Geico representative who attempted to murder him for refusing to work for Geico.
    • Also, Sharon's calling out of Randy. Her speech is a perfect summation of how oppressive hyper-political correctness can be for everyone.
    Randy: Look at what's happened to our town! We have CtPaTown, boutique restaurants and artisan shops, we have a fucking Whole Foods, and that was all me! Diverse people are moving in, everyone is becoming aware of how they talk! This is paradise, Sharon!
    Sharon: Is it? All I know is that you've changed. Ever since you joined this PC thing, you just bully people and wait for anyone to say anything improper, just so you can drop down their throats for whatever words he or she used!
  • PC Principal makes a Heel–Face Turn in the season 19 finale and spends the whole episode being a badass.
  • The sequence where Gerald trolls people on the internet to "Smokin" by Boston. He gets so into typing it syncs up with the organ solo from the song, and ends with an animated cameo appearance by Boston themselves. That bit was truly inspired on the part of Matt and Trey.
  • In "Broadway Bro Down", Larry Feegan manages to do the impossible: get Shelley to fall in love with him.
  • "Franchise Prequel": Stephen, upon finding out Butters has been using Facebook to spread lies about his friends (as Professor Chaos and Coon & Friends), drags him all the way to Moscow to force him to tell Vladmir Putin what he did. Butters confesses he got the idea from what the Russians did on Facebook during the 2016 election and Stephen tears Putin a new one before grounding both of them.

Other Characters

  • Santa gets his in Cartman's Christmas story when he shows Stan how to deal with Satanic Woodland Critters.
    • Speaking of the Satanic Woodland Critters, in the "Imaginationland" episode they are so evil that they scare the shit out of all the other villains, doubling as yet another CMOA for Cartman.
    Jason Voorhees: Man, I do NOT want to meet the kid that dreamt those things up.
  • Jesus saving Santa in "Red Sleigh Down". Now there's a deific sacrifice you can get behind.
    • And Santa then standing over his sadistic interrogator as he cowers and blowing his brains out.
    Santa: I couldn't do it... I just couldn't let him live, he shocked Santa's balls!
    • From the same episode, when Jesus confronts the men holding Santa:
      Jesus: My children, you should know something. *pulls out a knife* I'm packing.
    • There's also Jesus destroying William Donahue with a glaive from Krull in the "Fantastic Easter Special", and then calmly slipping on a pair of sunglasses.
  • In one of the more down-to-earth moments of awesome on the show, one-time character Gary Harrison gives Stan one hell of a monologue about the way he's been criticizing his family (who've been nothing but nice to everyone in town) and his Mormon faith throughout the episode "All About Mormons".
    Gary: Look, maybe us Mormons believe in crazy stories that makes absolutely no sense, and maybe Joseph Smith did make it all up. But I have a great life and a great family, and I have the Book of Mormon to thank for that. The truth is, I don't care if Joseph Smith made it all up because what the church teaches now is loving your family, being nice, and helping people. And even though people in this town might think that's stupid, I still choose to believe in it. All I ever did was to try and be your friend, Stan, but you're so high and mighty you couldn't look past my religion and just be my friend back. You've got a lot of growing up to do, buddy. Suck my balls.
  • Jesus in the "Imaginationland" trilogy.
  • In "Super Best Friends", the moment where David Blaine eats his own head!
  • Morgan Freeman was depicted reading the first three chapters of "The Poop That Took A Pee" in "The Tale of Scrotie McBoogerballs". The only shame is they didn't get the real deal to guest voice.
  • Satan throwing his fight with Jesus when, after the weigh in, everyone in South Park, save one person, changed their bets to Satan, due to his 200+ lbs over Jesus' weight. And that one bet for Jesus was made by Satan himself, so he ends the episode with the pretty sweet consolation prize of a great deal of the townspeople's money. Even though This Devil Is a Loser, he's still the Devil.
  • The entire episode "200". So many Continuity Nods and Fanservice, it practically defines Continuity Porn.
    • And then in "201", there's Scott Tenorman's The Killing Joke inspired return.
    • "Revenge is a dish best served... chili."
  • Towelie in his debut episode, near the end when he is lowering Stan, Kyle and Cartman to try to let them grab their Okama GameSphere, as the place is falling apart. The GS-401 towel tells Towelie he has to decide between saving the boys' lives and getting high. Towelie declares that he chooses both, and stretches out far enough to grab GS-401's joint and get high, allowing Kyle to grab the GameSphere and escape just in time before the platform they are on collapses.
  • The Super Best Friends, period.
  • "There's a real hoot for ya, Woodsy!"
    • Please let it be known this is Freddie freakin' Krueger, who was Good All Along, saving the others from a demonic Woodsy the Owl. Bad ass? Bad ass.
  • The return of Mr. Hankey in I Should Never Have Gone Ziplining.
  • "Raising the Bar"
    • First Lady Michelle Obama beating up Cartman in order to fight childhood obesity. Would normally be Dude, Not Funny!, but this is Eric Cartman.
    • James Cameron being the one who saves the day by literally raising the bar back and setting society's standards to the correct levels, then proceeding to steer his ship into a storm on route to the set of Avatar 2. When his crewmembers say people should know about what he did, he responds:
    James Cameron: James Cameron doesn't do what James Cameron does for James Cameron. James Cameron does what James Cameron does because James Cameron is... James Cameron.
    • A more meta example is the episode winning an Emmy, which is a rather apt one for it to go to given its lesson about keeping standards high.
  • Mr. and Mrs. Weatherhead are horrible abusers, but at the same time, they put Cartman in his place. Mr. threatening Cartman with the punishment room. While Mrs. calls him out on his pronunciations.
    Mrs. Weatherhead: My name.. is not... "Mee-eem".
  • The epic journey of Lemmiwinks the gerbil to escape Mr. Slave's body after being shoved up his ass, freeing the souls of all the other animals that have suffered the same fate along the way.
  • Cesar Millan's appearance as the Dog Whisperer, aka the only time a celebrity hasn't been ripped on by South Park. He's sent to help Mrs. Cartman control Cartman and does it by treating him like a disobedient dog who needs to learn their place. The first thing he does is walk into the house and ignore Cartman and nip his neck with two fingers each time Cartman tries acting out. He and eventually Mrs. Cartman manage to completely break down Cartman and make Mrs. Cartman the dominant one in their relationship. If it wasn't for Status Quo Is God (he needs to leave since his work is done, causing Mrs. Cartman to feel lonely again, which results in her turning Cartman back into her best friend instead of a son), Cesar would have done the impossible and suffered no reprecussions for it.
  • Patty Hamill, the wife of the Vagisil creator from "Poor And Stupid" who has been treating her like garbage throughout the whole episode, has enough of his crap and commandeers a crashed NASCAR car which she then uses to outrace Cartman (who was now the Vagisil spokesman) and runs him off the track. She flawlessly wins the race and destroys her husband's company after years of emotional abuse, and the best part is not only does she not care about ruining her husband's career, but she never even had any speaking parts throughout the whole episode.
  • The ending to "Crack Baby Athletic Association", where Slash proves that he's Real After All by building the crack babies their lavish orphanage after EA screwed the kids out of the rights to their franchise, even leaving a guitar and top hat behind as a calling card. Doubles as a Heartwarming Moment, too.
  • "Go Fund Yourself": The Last Stand of the Washington Redskins' owner, allowing himself to repeatedly and brutally get tackled down by the Dallas Cowboys and getting up each time - just to win the hearts of the crowd and turn the world against Cartman's use of the team's name.
  • "The Cissy": Sharon Marsh gives a Rousing Speech to Randy, who it turns out has actually been living a double life as the pop star Lorde (long story) and is feeling depressed because he's no longer allowed to use the women's bathroom at work because it makes the female employees uncomfortable:
    "Do you know why young people like Lorde so much? It's because she's something different. Lorde represents something in all of us: the truth that wants to be heard. If I could talk to Lorde right now, you know what I'd tell her? I'd tell her not to let people change who she is. I'd tell her that if people are making fun of her, it's probably because they've lost touch with being human. I'd tell her to keep on doing what she does. Because when someone's not allowed to express who they are inside, then we all lose. That's... what I'd say to Lorde."
  • "Handicar": Timmy's employees charging down the hill and attacking Nathan and Mimsy.
  • George W. Bush gets a couple:
    • In "Cartoon Wars", he is one the few people to defend the right of the Family Guy writers' freedom of speech when everyone feared a terrorist attack because of their Muhammad episode.
    • In "Mystery Of The Urinal Deuce" he was crafty enough to start the 9/11 Truth Movement, knowing that 1/4 Americans would fear the government and give them an illusion of power.
  • "Freemium Isn't Free": When Stan realizes he has an addiction, he prays for an intervention to help him understand and fight it. And the intervention comes, from Satan! Who then sits with Stan and explains the science behind the addictions, and when he learns that Stan is addicted to a crappy mobile "freemium" game, he's so enraged at how blunt and unsubtle it is, he borrows Stan's body and goes to fight the one behind the creation of the game, the Canadian Devil, Beelzaboot!
  • In "#HappyHologram" not only the Hologram MJ shoots Randy's manager for the amount of craziness, after a heartwarming moment from Kyle apologizing to Ike and his friends, Ike suggests everyone to post a '#webelieveinyou' to stop Cartman and his 'CartmanBrah' channel for being too powerful over the trending. Everyone did so including Kyle who tells the viewers to hashtag it. Suddenly, someone decides to jump into Cartman's show and that person is none other than PewDiePie himself. He manages to change it to his Call of Duty Let's Play and stop Cartman and his channel for good.
  • From "You're Not Yelping", the ending song is extremely satisfying to anyone sick of self-important assholes using the adage "the customer is always right" to abuse servers and businesses to get their way.
  • This moment from "Handicar":
    Mimsy: Hey boss, I just thought 'a somethin'. You always come up with these plans to get out of going to summer camp, but they all inevitably backfire on ya'. Why don't you just tell your parents that you don't want to got to summer camp, and see how they react? (beat) Oh, right. (slaps himself) Shut up, Mimsy!
    'Nathan: Hey Mimsy?
    Mimsy: Yeah?
    Nathan: (slaps Mimsy harder than ever before) SHUT UP!
  • "Safe Space": Reality calling everyone out on their hypocrisy and thin skin.
    "What a lovely charity event. I suppose you're all feeling pretty good about yourselves, hmmm? What have you done? You've raised $300 by spending half a million on Filet Mignon and crystal glasses. Look at you, Vin Dipshit. You say fat shaming is wrong, so in response you show off your abs. You're the one fat shaming, idiot! What's the matter with you people? You're sad that people are mean? Well, I'm sorry, the world isn't one big liberal-arts college campus! We eat too much, we take our spoiled lives for granted - feel a little bad about it sometimes! No, you want to put all your shit up on the internet and have every single person say, "Hooray for you!" Fuck you! You're all pricks. And I've got news for you. While you've been sitting here trying to feel good, the little boy who sucked all your shit is about to die from it!"
    • Earlier in that episode Randy brings Vin Diesel and Steven Seagal in to intimidate the cashier, the cashier calmly starts singing "This little piggy went to market, this little piggy stayed home, this little piggy was in The Fast and the Furious (Vin runs off crying), this little piggy goes directly to cable (Steven runs off crying leaving Randy alone)". He then continues to harass a speechless Randy as if nothing happened.
  • "PC Principal: Final Justice"
    • When Nathan slaps his ho Classi for speaking out of line, she beats the living hell out of him.
    • PC Principal stopping the ads.
    • Liane Cartman taking a level in badass:
    (pointing a gun at Cartman) "Eric, it is time for night-night!
  • The way Heidi was able to narrow down where skankhunt42 is located, and helping TrollTrace.
  • Lennard Bedrager, CEO of TrollTrace gets one in "Oh, Jeez", when Gerald is sent by Hillary Clinton to infiltrate TrollTrace and use a suitcase EMP to destroy their servers. Once Gerald gets into the server room, it's revealed all the other trolls who helped throw Denmark into turmoil were told the same story as him, and that it was all a set-up between Bedrager and Clinton. With Gerald and the trolls all trapped together, what happens when their suitcase "EMPs" go off?
    • And then the CEO of TrollTrace gets another one when he reveals he's not even Danish, and that everything he's done has been to troll the world into World War 3. Literally For the Evulz.
  • Compared to the Extreme Doormat she was in earlier seasons (and still is at times), any time we see Cartman's mom stand up to him, put her foot down and punish him - and not even back down when he bitches at her over it - is fantastic. Even though she's still got a ways to go, she's still come a long way from the woman who took her son's abuse with a smile and gave into him all the time.
  • When Lennart reveals his true intentions in "Not Funny". Clearly what he's doing is wrong, but after a whole season of putting up with Gerald's smugness, it's awesome to see him (naked and clearly scared) being beaten at his own game.
    Gerald: You would deliberately start World War 3? Let the people of Denmark die? Set everyone on earth against each other? Why!?
    Lennart: Because it's FREAKING HILARIOUS! Getting a Scandinavian country to fight trolls? By building a giant machine that actually shows that everyone on earth is kind of a troll, too?
    Gerald: That's not funny!
  • "Put It Down" has PC Principal finally get sick of Cartman's demands and refuse to give him all the bells and whistles he wants for his grandiose suicide awareness concert including "a full orchestra and a thousand doves".
    PC Principal: I can give you two student volunteers and a pigeon.
    Cartman: Do you have any idea how serious this is? As someone who deals with suicidal thoughts, I cannot believe the lack of concern at this school! Maybe I should just take the awareness of my suicide out to the public on the streets!
    PC Principal: (goes back to doing bicep curls) Maybe you should.
  • In "Sons A Witches", Garrison uses an ORBITAL SPACE LASER to kill Chip Duncan.


  • The episode "Aw, Jeez"'s entire existence is this since Matt and Trey, because they assumed Hillary Clinton would win the 2016 election and wrote the episode based on that assumption, had to scrap everything and make it in JUST ONE DAY.
  • The sheer number of people amused by their appearances in the show, even when they're the target of the episode.
