Quotes

Eric Cartman: I don't get it.
Stan Marsh: Me neither.
Ms. Choksondik: The adjective form is now also acceptable. For example,
[writes on the board]
Ms. Choksondik: "The weather outside is shitty". However, the literal adjective is not appropriate. For example,
[writes on board]
Ms. Choksondik: "My bad diarrhea made the inside of the toilet all shitty and I had to clean it with a rag which then also became shitty". That's right out
[crosses out the sentence]
Timmy: Shhhhhhit,
Ms. Choksondik: Very good, Timmy.

Contains the highest use of the word s**t on television!
26 November 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

I think this episode was an important event in television history.It was not the first time the word s**t was used on TV, but it was definitely the most times it was used.There is a counter in the episode, and according to it, the word s**t is uttered 162 times in this 22min episode...uncensored which is new for South Park.The episode is about this show called "Cop Drama" which is supposed to use the word s**t.The word then becomes acceptable to use.People also seem to be dying, by throwing up their intestines.The boys think it's because of the word.With the help of Chef, they check it out and find that the word caused the black plague.This is an interesting and history-making south park episode!
