The class takes a field trip to the planetarium, but Cartman sneaks off to try out for a Cheesy Poofs commercial. Though the kids are bored at first, they come back from the trip eager to go again. The reason for this sudden change is explained when Mr. Mackey mind-melds with a frightened little boy who stowed away in the school bus. As the planetarium's secret is being revealed, Cartman is overjoyed to learn that he has been selected to be a Cheesy Poof. Written by

Did You Know?
The poor little girl with the windswept hair who is in the call back with Cartman and the others is none other than Cosette, the girl from Les Miserables. In the novel, her guardian, Jean Valjean, long before he met her, was thrown in prison for stealing bread. Cartman eliminates the girl from the competition by saying bread is being given away outside. And if you look at the board behind her, you'll see a poster for the Les Miserable musical which bears the question, "Who will be the next Cosette?". See more

Please, nurse. For a woman with a dead fetus on your head, you're not being very open-minded.
