Member Berries - S20-E1

Audio problem: At the start, the girls' volleyball has two commentators. Left is voiced by Trey, the right by Matt. But in their last scene together the right commentator has switched voices.

Fort Collins - S20-E6

Factual error: In the flashback of Cartman watching the Ghostbusters remake, there is a list of times for other movies playing at the theatre shown in the ticket booth. The movies listed are The Accountant, Ghostbusters, The Girl on the Train and Kevin Hart: What Now? The flashback is supposed to take place in the summer, around the time the Ghostbusters remake was released. The Ghostbusters remake was released in the US in July 2016, however the movies, The Accountant, The Girl on the Train and Kevin Hart: What Now? were not released in the US until October 2016, almost three months apart from each other.

Casual Person

Oh, Jeez - S20-E7

Continuity mistake: When the agents are taking Gerald below the bridge to meet with Hillary Clinton, in the angle where Gerald says that he was set up and is not Skanthunt42, the agents grab hold of him and make their way under the bridge. As the shot ends, Gerald and the agents are about to go under the bridge, but in the next shot, they are suddenly further away from the area under the bridge. The shot cuts again and they are suddenly directly under the bridge.

Casual Person

Phillip: Yes, perhaps he's homophobic.
Terrance: But we're not gay, Phillip.
Phillip: We're not?

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.
