Recap / South Park S 16 E 7 Cartman Finds Love

Air date: April 25, 2012

Cartman sets up Token with a new black girl because they are two of the same race, but when she says she likes Kyle, Cartman plays matchmaker to make her and Token into (what he thinks is) a perfect couple.

"Cartman Finds Love" contains examples of:

  • Call-Back: Wendy mentions that she once dated Token.
  • Right for the Wrong Reasons: Cartman sets Token and Nichole up out of the racist belief that people should only be with their own kind. It's only by coincidence that Token and Nichole happen to make a great couple.
  • A Taste of Their Own Medicine: Cartman's belief that people should only date their own kind comes back to bite him when Cupid Me sets him up with a fat girl.
  • Token Minority Couple: Token eventually becomes one with the new black girl Nichole, due to Cartman's manipulation.
