Recap / South Park S 19 E 2 Where My Country Gone

Go To

Mr. Garrison is sick of all the new Canadian immigrants in South Park so he insists on building a wall to keep out immigrants. Meanwhile Cartman tries to get Butters to rape a Canadian girl to get the Canadian immigrants out of South Park.

Where My Country Gone contains examples of:

  • And I'm the Queen of Sheba: Mr. Garrison interrupts a historical Canadian play, saying, "Yeah, and I'm Dan Rather, and I got news for you: nobody wants you here!"
  • Advertisement:
  • Answer Cut: When Charlotte's father Thomas tells Butters why the Canadians had to leave Canada, Butters asks, "How bad can a president be?" Cut to the President of Canada having a "suck my balls" attitude.
  • Bait-and-Switch: We're led to believe that Mr. Garrison is bitching about the Mexicans again, just like he did in earlier seasons. Then we find out that it isn't Mexicans, it's Canadians.
    • Also for the first half of the episode we are led to think Mr. Garrison is supposed to be a representation of Donald Trump, but turns out he's repeating what Donald Trump did in Canada.
  • Black Comedy Rape: Mr. Garrison rapes Donald Trump (the Canadian president) to death.
  • Book Ends: A character (Kyle at the beginning, Mr. Garrison at the end) getting a ride with Caitlyn Jenner, who tells them, "Buckle up, buckaroo!" She then peels out and runs someone over to death, and no one cares about the hit and run.
  • The Bus Came Back: After nearly 7 seasons of being in the background, Mr. Garrison comes back to prominence with a vengeance.
  • Call-Back:
    • Rape is called a "hot Cosby" again.
    • Randy is still a PC Bro.
  • The Conspiracy: Cartman thinks the Canadian immigration issue was Kyle's plan to cause a war.
  • Disney Death: Mr. Garrison's attempt to sneak into Canada via Niagra Falls leads his barrel breaking up and Jimbo assuming he's dead. Later, he regains conciousness and finds Canada in a crapsack state.
  • Leaning on the Fourth Wall: According to Obama, Kyle acceptance speech for Caitlyn Jenner happened "last week".
  • Not So Different: Mr. Garrison's Anti-Immigration policy turns out to be a lot like Canadian Trump's policies.
  • Oh, Crap!: Butters's reaction to being forced by the other boys to get a Canadian girlfriend is, "Oh, shit!"
  • Out with a Bang: Mr. Garrison makes good on his promise to fuck Canada to death.
  • Politically Incorrect Villain: Mr. Garrison, being prejudiced to Canadians of all people.
  • Pop-Cultural Osmosis Failure:
    • Cartman tries to recall a well-known story demonstrating his plans.
    Butters: Lion King II?
    Cartman: (snaps his fingers) Yes, Lion King II! note 
    • He also says what’s happening in the school is akin to Genesis 34, a chapter involving Jacob’s daughter Dinah getting raped and her brothers killing the rapist and his entire clan for it. Then again... it might be fairly apt after all.
  • Ripped from the Headlines: Donald Trump's plan for fighting illegal immigration.
  • Running Gag: Everyone is finally sick of Kyle's constant preachy speech giving and whenever he gives one, everyone either leaves or stares angrily at him until he leaves.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: The fate of the romance between Butters and his Canadian girlfriend, Charlotte.
  • Take That!:
    • Although his name is never said, the Canadian president is obviously a parody of Donald Trump.
    • More cracks are taken at Jenner. From her "hero" status to her appearance. She even gets away with brutally running someone over. Twice.
  • Take That, Us: Kyle's habit of giving a speech about An Aesop at the end of each episode is ridiculed, with many characters aside from Cartman getting really sick of it.
  • This Is for Emphasis, Bitch!: Mr. Garrison asking the Canadian President "Where my country gone, bitch?".
  • Title Drop: The title is said several times in Mr. Garrison's song with the same name.
  • With Friends Like These...: Kyle is continuously blamed for the immigration issue and ousted by his friends for trying to point out why they're wrong.

How well does it match the trope?
