Headscratchers / South Park: Bigger, Longer & Uncut

Go To

  • How was Kenny still alive and conscious, albeit briefly, after having his heart replaced with a potato?
  • How was the potato baked before anyone cooked it?
    • It may have been run in the microwave before and was sitting there, cooked, when the doctor opened the microwave up. Plus, he left it in the microwave when he put Kenny's heart in. I assume it got zapped right along with the heart then.
    • Twice-baked potatoes, dude. They're really good.
  • Why where Wendy and Gregory a part of La Resistance if they don't even like Terrance and Phillip?
    • Maybe they still disagreed with the way Sheila was handling everything and wanted to take a stand?
      • "I may not agree with what you say, but I will defend to the death your right to say it." Wendy and Gregory are exactly the sort to get involved with La Resistance as a matter of principle.
  • How was the scene where Conan O'Brien jumps out a window visible on TV if Talk Show sets never take place outside?

    • Most talk shows are in studios, so he was in a studio which had a higher floor with a window offscreen.
  • Why were Wendy and Gregory at Mr. Mackey's rehabilitation center if they never cursed nor saw the Terrance & Phillip movie? This is justified with Gregory's line in the scene about his 4.0 grade point average from Yardale, as well as in the original eighth draft with Bebe stating that Wendy doesn't even like Terrance & Phillip, but Mackey just ignores it.
  • Why doesn't Sheila realize that her adopted son Ike is Canadian? Kyle even brings this up to reason with her, but Sheila doesn't care and just continues to exterminate Canada anyway. What would've happened if Kyle bought Ike to the battlefield (as shown in early trailer footage)? Is Ike the only exception Sheila has when it comes to Canadians?
    • Ike's her son. She likely considers him an exception, or has a blind spot where he's concerned, or something of the sort. It's not exactly a stretch for her to be hypocritical.
  • If Wendy never liked Gregory (as she tells Stan in the end), then why did she befriend him in the first place (and at one point seem in love with him)?
    • Maybe to make Stan pay attention to her, she's done that before.
  • How were the boys allowed to sneak into the Terrance & Phillip movie for the second time after the theater clerk was pissed off at them for paying a homeless guy to get them in the first time?
    • They could've paid someone else to get them in a second time and done it a little more discreetly. Or just snuck in some other way, through a side entrance or something.
  • If Trey and Matt were able to re-render every episode in HD, wouldn't they be able to do the same with the movie? I know the rights to the show and rights to the movie are different, but the film could use a better HD transfer than the one from Paramount's film prints with lines digitally scrubbed.
  • Cartman's mom. They searched "clitoris" and came up with stuff about her. An early spoiler or just her doing lesbian stuff?

    • The nature of the video is stated explicitly.
    • Negative Continuity. Plus, searching the internet isn't necessarily the most accurate thing imaginable, including/especially porn. There could be any number of reasons she showed up on that particular search. Including/especially porn.
  • I'm not sure if this has been addressed or not yet, but how come the fourth graders can't get into an R-rated movie without a guardian, yet the sixth graders in line behind them CAN???
    • Who said that they were there to see that movie in particular? They could've been seeing another movie.
  • Something about the song "Blame Canada" bothers me. The songs' general message is that overzealous parenting groups will blame anything but their own failings as parents when their kids misbehave. Most of the things the parents think to blame on their kids' behavior - Canada, television, society, matches, and fire - are fit that general mold. But grouped in with that is 'the doctors who allowed him [Kenny] to expire'. What bothers me is that it's completely reasonable to blame the doctors for what's happening in South Park in this case - they shoved a potato where Kenny's heart used to be and let him explode and die. Say what you want about the other things, but blaming the doctors in that case sounds totally reasonable to me!
    • Well, even a broken watch is correct twice a day, so I guess even a mob of bigots may for once condemn someone for reason.
      • Actually, it felt more like Bait-and-Switch, as the parents had what should of been legitimately blamed right in front of them but chose the more emotionally appealing but false option.
  • Despite her Anti-Canadian actions in the movie, Why did it take so long for Sheila Broflovski to remember her adopted son Ike is Canadian and what would happen if she discovers he was about to be sent to a Canadian Concentration Camp? This troper is even surprised that Ike's biological parents didn't recognize her as the instigator of the American/Canadian war and didn't just take Ike away for that.
    • When people get caught up in things that they're passionate about, their judgment is often clouded and they tend to forget pesky details like that.

    • Considering Sheila is a Jewish woman orchestrating Concentration Camps, it's safe to say she's a bit of a fucking hypocrite.
