Storyline

A wave of chickenpox is spreading through the town, and when Kenny comes down with the disease, the parents decide to infect all the boys so that they'll be immune from it later in life. When the kids find out how they're being used, they decide to get revenge by finding something to infect their parents with. Meanwhile, Kyle's and Kenny's fathers' reminiscences about their childhood friendship turn to resentment over how far their paths diverged. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

One Of Trey Parker's And Matt Stone's Favorite Episodes Too!
13 August 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

All of the boys, except Kyle has Chicken Pox, so The Boy's Mothers try to come up with a plan with sending Kyle to Kenny's house, but nothing turns out as expected when The Boys invite a prostitute over to spread her germs to give The Parents the virus as revenge. The episode even has a Terrance And Phillip scene where Terrance donates his ass to Phillip! Well, two things that I have learnt from this episode were that you can spread a virus with a prostitute using your parents's toothbrushes and that Chef likes Terrance And Phillip! A highly recommended episode if you are a South Park beginner, but the ending will probably nauseate you!

Overall Rating: 9/10!
