Storyline

Stan's Grampa wants to die because he's too old, but he needs Stan's help to do it. Meanwhile, the town's parents have become outraged by Terrance and Philip, the new TV show consisting of nothing but fart jokes that all the kids are crazy about. When the parents go to protest the network and leave the kids to fend for themselves, Grampa takes this opportunity to convince Stan to help him end it all. But is it really what's best for either of them? Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Quotes

[while Cartman is watching "Terrance and Phillip"]
Liane Cartman: Eric, dear. I just got a call from your friend Kyle's mother. She said this show is naughty, and might make you a pottymouth.
Eric Cartman: That's a bunch o' crap! Kyle's mom is a dirty Jew!
Liane Cartman: Oh. Okay, hon.

Marks the debut of Terrence and Philip
24 September 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Death is the sixth episode of South Park.It's a very funny episode and marks the debut of the foul-mouthed canadians Terrence and Philip.The episode spoofs what happened when South Park first came out, with angry parents rioting.Kyle's mom sees Terrence and Philip, bans all the other kids from watching the show and gets a bunch of parents to try and take the show off the air.Funny thing about it is, while they are blaming the show for fart-jokes, the parents make fart-jokes themselves when they all find themselves with diarrhea(courtesy of Kenny).Meanwhile, Stan's grandpa is 102 years old and wants Stan to kill him.Stan is worried about helping his grandpa die and is hesitant to do it.Eventually he agrees to(after grandpa shows him how he feels, by playing crappy music) and Death comes along.However Death does not want to kill grandpa.Death is a great episode! Kyle's mom trying to ban terrence and philip would later be used as the plot for the South Park movie.
