Quotes

Stan: Why would God let Kenny die, Chef? Why? Kenny's my friend. Why can't God take someone else's friend?
Chef: [Soothing piano music is played] Stan, sometimes God takes those closest to us, because it makes him feel better about himself. He is a very vengeful God, Stan. He's all pissed off about something we did thousands of years ago. He just can't get over it, so he doesn't care who he takes. Children, puppies, it don't matter to him, so long as it makes us sad.

Stan: But then, why does ...

One of the better episodes of Season 5, however more depressing than funny
10 December 2008 | by (Canada(Montreal,Quebec)) – See all my reviews

Kenny Dies is one of the best episodes of Season 5.I found season 5 to be not as good as the others, but the episodes were still decent(and there were some very good ones).This is one of my favorite episodes of this season.It has funny moments but it is more of a dramatic episode.Kenny usually dies in every episode, however in this one, his death is taken seriously.The episode has Kenny getting diagnosed with cancer.Meanwhile, aborted fetuses become illegal and Cartman, who has a bunch of them and wants to sell them, tries to make them legal again.The episode was made because Trey and Matt were "sick" of Kenny.When Kenny dies in this episode, he would not return until the last episode of Season 6(Red Sleigh Down).This is a good episode which is mostly dramatic than comedic.
