* SpannerInTheWorks: Downplayed: Chef actually brought some chili to Cartman's chili con carnival, something he actually did not expect (along with how good it would be).

** Kenny's death is a parody of the weasels' deaths from ''Film/WhoFramedRogerRabbit''. The reruns after the initial Wednesday airing [[OrwellianRetcon even added an animation of his ghost rising out of his body STILL laughing, to further denote it as a parody]].
