Recap: South Park S 5 E 4 Scott Tenorman Must Die
Cartman exacts revenge on an older boy who sold him his pubes and constantly tries to trick him out of his allowance.
- Bullying a Dragon: In hindsight, Scott would have been better off if he had just given Cartman back his money.
- Mugging the Monster: Of course, no one, not even Stan or Kyle, knew how low Cartman would sink.
- Darker and Edgier: Trey Parker and Matt Stone state this to be a milestone episode, as the point where Cartman became "the most evil kid in the world."
- Disproportionate Retribution: Cartman does NOT take serial humiliation well at all.
- Genre Savvy: Cartman figured that the chili dish that Scott made for him would contain his pubes, and thus switched that bowl with a bowl of Chef's chili during the tasting.
- I'm a Humanitarian: Scott, though unintentionally.
- Karma Houdini: Cartman gets absolutely nothing in return for killing and feeding Scott his parents ( unless you count the later revelation in "201" that Cartman and Scott Tenorman are related because Liane had sex with Scott's father, meaning that the whole "Mrs. Cartman is a hermaphrodite and she actually impregnated a woman" revelation in "Cartman's Mom is Still a Dirty Slut" was a cover up by the townspeople to protect the Denver Broncos.).
- According to South Park FAQ, The reason why Cartman never got arrested is because pube-related crimes are only a misdemeanor in South Park.
- Kick the Dog: Burning Cartman's money right in front of him.
- Kenny's death is a parody of the weasels' deaths from Who Framed Roger Rabbit. The reruns after the initial Wednesday airing even added an animation of his ghost rising out of his body STILL laughing, to further denote it as a parody.
- The scene where Cartman gets a box from Scott full of his pubes parodies the scene from Se7en where Mills finds his wife's decapitated head in a box.
- And the final scene? From Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus.
- That's All, Folks!: Cartman parodies the famous Looney Tunes closing... after he successfully completes his plot to have Scott eat his parents.
- Tranquil Fury: Cartman is perfectly calm as he describes what he did to Scott.
- Understatement: In response to what Cartman's done to Scott, Kyle's remark? "It might be a good idea never to piss off Cartman again."
