Did You Know?


The idea of Ms. Ellen taking one of the children to dinner came from Trey Parker's real-life experiences. At his school, the children were able to have lunch with the teacher and principal if they were awarded "Student of the Week". Parker said he went on one of the lunches once and found the experience "really, really creepy" because he had the impression the teacher and principal were having a romantic affair. See more »


Wendy comes to class dressed in black leather. When Mr. Garrison returns to tell the class he's going to quit teaching, Wendy is in her seat dressed as usual. When Stan talks, she's in black leather again. See more »


Wendy Testaberger: [sees the rocket with Miss Ellen in it headed for the sun through a shoebox telescope and smiles] Bye Bye Miss Ellen
Kyle Broflovski: [Shocked] You didn't!
Wendy Testaberger: [takes the shoebox away to reveal disoriented eyes] I told her "Don't... fuck... with... WENDY... TESTABERGER!"

A Very Funny And Strange Episode!
26 July 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This episode (Tom's Rhinoplasty) is about Mr Garrison giving up his job and becoming A Male Fashion Model! A very beautiful substitute teacher (Miss Ellen) is taken the like by A Lot Of The Class Pupils! (Especially Stan who eventually gets Wendy jealous!) Mr Garrison (With David Hustlehoff's face shown as his own stupid head!) eventually gets bored with being hot and sexy and learns how much hard work it is being A Fashion Model! Wendy is is the only character who wants Mr Garrison to return! Even though that I find it very crazy that celebrity cameos let Trey Parker And Matt Stone make fun of themselves at times, it was still a very fun episode to watch! If you are A South Park Fan and you have not seen it yet, then please feel free to check it out!

Overall Rating: 9/10!
