After Stan scores a remarkably high "Thetan Level" at a Scientology center, he is considered to be the reincarnation of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard. John Travolta, Tom Cruise and other Scientologists go to South Park to convince Stan to be their leader, but when Stan makes disparaging remarks about Cruise's acting, the movie star locks himself inside a bedroom closet. R&B singer R. Kelly is recruited to get Tom Cruise to come out of the closet, but eventually Kelly, as well as Travolta, find themselves all trapped in the closet. Written by

I'm not really religious.
Oh, we see Scientology as more an alternative to Psychology than a religion.
So how come that sign says "Church of Scientology"?
Oh, that's just this thing.
At the end of the episode, Stan and the leader of the church of Scientology, get in an argument to which Stan says "So sue me!", and the leader says "Fine we will!". When the credits roll, everyones name is John Smith or Jane Smith, presumably, so Tom Cruise (who was mocked in the episode) wouldn't sue them. See more
