Fun With Veal - S6-E4

Continuity mistake: When Stan is lowered into the baby calf barn, he goes and unties all the chains from around all the cows' necks, but when the boys begin to carry them all away, the chains are back around their necks.

Suggested correction: Butters is always shown as being a bit dim and slow. As a kid it's easy for him to make a mistake in thinking that there was only 132 episodes.

That's why it's called a "character mistake"; also, Butters is certainly naive, but he's hardly what I would call "dim and slow."

The Biggest Douche in the Universe - S6-E15

Continuity mistake: When Stan goes to see John Edwards, John Edwards's butler goes to get him. When the butler reappears (just before he pushes the buttons on the wall for the recorded voices), he reappears from the right of the archway. But John Edwards appears from the left of the archway when the voices are playing.

My Future Self n' Me - S6-E16

Continuity mistake: When Stan threatens to cut his hand off, you can see his wrist, but just right before he does it, his wrist disapears between his glove and jacket. If his wrist was showing, he couldn't have had his hand pulled inside his jacket and he obviously couldn't have done it while holding the meat cleaver.

Free Hat - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When we see George from outside his house, there is nothing but clear glass, but when we see him from inside, there is a black rail accross at about waist level. (00:12:30)

Free Hat - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When Spielberg and Lucas are sitting behind the boys, the camera shows them to be sitting up higher that they are in other shots, when it is focused on them, you should be able to see the tops of the kids heads sitting in front of them. (00:08:00)

Free Hat - S6-E9

Continuity mistake: When Tweak is making the paper hats, watch Mr Tweak as he tells him to calm down. When Mr Tweak turns and walks away, his hair vanishes and he becomes bald.

Professor Chaos - S6-E6

Continuity mistake: In the very beginning, Butters walks in after Cartman, Kyle and Stan talk about replacing him. Butters and Cartman sit down and talk. Firstly, pay attention to the 'Cow Day' banner behind Cartman. After the camera goes from Cartman talking to Butters then back to Cartman, a letter S is now on the banner. It now reads 'Cow Days.' During the same sequence, look behind Butters. You can see Peter Panda on what looks like a toy box. After a few cuts from Cartman to Butters, now all of a sudden, Clyde Frog is next to Peter Panda on the box.

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.
