Did You Know?

Trey Parker developed the idea for this episode after his trip to Costa Rica with his girlfriend at the time, on advice from Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Trey hated the trip, and most of the episode parodies the experiences he had, where to an extent "everything he (Cartman) says in this about Costa Rica is just me (Trey) saying that".See more »

Mr. Mackey:[Lecturing Craig in his office] I am tired of seeing you here in my office, young man. You get sent here every day, Craig.
Craig:I know.
Mr. Mackey:Why can't you behave?
Craig:I don't know.
Mr. Mackey:What do you have to say for yourself?
[Craig is silent]
Mr. Mackey:Well, I'll tell you what, young man. You're gonna be held back a grade if you can't...
[Craig gives Mr. Mackey the finger]
Mr. Mackey:Did you just flip me off?

Wild episode!, 20 October 2008
Author: gangstahippie from Canada(Montreal, Quebec)

Rainforest, Schmainforest is the season 3 opener of South Park.Season 3 was overall a good season with great episodes such as the three "meteor shower episodes".Unlike the other seasons which are Rated 14A in Canada, this one is Rated 18A and I do not really know why.It could be because of the final episode but there have been worse episodes with a 14A rating.Anyway, this episode guest stars Jennifer Aniston as a save the rainforest choir group leader.During her class presentation, the boys make fun of the group except for Kenny who is stricken by one girl's beauty.The boys are then forced to join the choir.They travel to Costa Rica to visit the rainforest and find it's not all its cracked up to be! This episode has some really funny moments and is overall a good episode!
