Proper Condom Use - S5-E7

Other mistake: When the boys cause a mini tremor by blowing up the girls' base, the time at which it occurs is strange because when they do it, both Stan's parents are at home (even though they both have jobs), Ms. Choksondik and Mr. Mackey are at Choksondik's house getting it on (indicating that school is over) and the other teachers are still at the school.

Show generally

Other mistake: Whenever Chef has his pointer finger up, if you see his hand, he has 5 fingers, but when he opens them all the way, he only has four.

Lil' Crime Stoppers - S7-E6

Other mistake: Butters tries to get a "seamen sample", and is on it for two days straight. The mistake: You can see Butters' head in the school classroom, while he's still supposed to be in Cartman's bathroom. (00:15:30)

Kvakk

Death - S1-E6

Other mistake: Both Kyle's and Stan's mothers are identified in this episode as Carol. They later become Sheila and Sharon.

CC

Volcano - S1-E2

Other mistake: When the needle starts moving, the lines travel across the paper, and disappear off the end (as they should) however towards the end, the lines all compress before they disappear. Since the paper is rolling over the end the lines shouldn't compress.

The Succubus (a.k.a. Chef's Mama) - S3-E3

Other mistake: Cartman says, "What? What happened you guys? Is Kenny okay?" The bandages only covered his eyes, not his ears, so even if he's blinded by his bandages, he still should have been able to hear Stan shouting, "Oh my God! She killed Kenny!" and Kyle's reply "You bastard!"

Shay

Over Logging - S12-E6

Other mistake: When the camp guards take the internet away, the computer cable being dragged away is not plugged into anything, even though the computer was on. (00:17:15)

Britney's New Look - S12-E2

Other mistake: In this episode we see Britney in the hospital and there is a chart on the end of her bed. However the chart is identical to the one that was on the end of Cartman's bed in the previous episode. (00:07:50)

Whale Whores - S13-E11

Other mistake: When the guys play Lady Gaga's "Poker Face" on Rock Band 2, there are a few problems. The TV screen shows 4 people playing (the guitar, bass, drums, and vocals) when actually 3 people are playing, the TV repeats itself on a constant loop, and there are no lyrics on the screen shown. Also the drums go from right to left: blue, yellow, red, and green. The drums are supposed to go red, yellow, blue, and green.

Margaritaville - S13-E3

Question: Can someone explain the subplot with the Margaritaville and Stan going to a bunch of places trying to return it? It's really confusing. And this sounds stupid, but in a recession, wouldn't spending money be bad?

Answer: Essentially Stan was trying to return the blender that his dad, Randy, had bought because he knew his parents couldn't afford the extra debt. The blender, which represented mortgage-backed securities, had been bought on payment plan, meaning Randy had to make monthly payments, with interest, on something that wasn't essential. The episode represented the recession that was occurring at the time, including the housing bubble and mortgage crisis going on, so there's a lot going on. However, the payment plan (which is to say the debt) had been sold to another company by the store that sold Randy the blender. (To explain why, because of the recession, the store needed cash on hand, and they would only be getting a little money each month, if Randy paid his bill. So the store sells the debt to a company who gives the store the money upfront. Think of the J.G. Wentworth commercials, "I have a structured settlement, but I need cash now".) Because the store sold the debt, in ridiculous fashion, Stan had to return the blender to the company that bought the debt, although they too sold the debt to another company. Finally he gets to the U.S. treasury who tells him his blender is worth $90 trillion (again a ridiculous exaggeration) meaning that the debt owed is greater than the product is worth and to deride the way government agencies set up their budgets (which requires much more complex economic lessons). Kyle's whole point was people shouldn't fear the economy or see it as a vengeful being, but continue to spend and live as they normally do. Economically speaking, not spending money during a recession creates a longer lasting recession, and to solve a recession, people should spend money, although people and businesses shouldn't acquire debt during a recession because interest rates are higher. But on a personal level, individuals are fearful of losing their jobs during a recession, so they save money in case that should happen. But again, this is complex economics lesson.
