Presented by "A British Person", this episode looks at the background of the character Pip, in the form of a South Park version of "Great Expectations". Young Pip, having first been employed in the service of Miss Havisham, an insane heiress, learns that an unknown person has paid to have him sent to a fine boarding school so that he may be raised as a gentleman. After finishing his schooling he returns to visit Miss Havisham, whom he believes was his mysterious benefactor. Only now does he learn what the woman's true intentions were, at which point the story separates completely from the original Dickens novel. Written by

This is the one of the only episodes in the entire South Park series in which none of the main characters - Kyle, Stan, Kenny or Cartman - appear. The other is the first episode from Season 2, the Terrence & Phillip episode "Not Without My Anus". This is the only episode to feature someone from South Park without including any of the four central characters. There have been episodes in the past in which one or more were MIA, but this is the only time in the series that none of the four have been present. See more

And so Pip spent the next several months learning how to be a gentlemen. He was schooled in several languages, he was taught fencing and marksmanship, and he was shown how to dance, and... how to eat box.
