Up the Down Steroid - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Jimmy and Timmy are training, you can see that there are two people behind them, a girl wearing a pink top with a flower on and a boy with some green glasses on.

Up the Down Steroid - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: When Cartman is planning, in the shot from behind him when he's on the computer there is a cup with a red and yellow pencil in it, the red is on the right and the yellow is on the left. Yet when it goes to looking at Cartman from the other way the crayons must've swapped positions because now they are the other way around.

Up the Down Steroid - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: When Jimmy is about to use the steroids, there is a shot of the pills. Then when he uses the steroids we can see the order of them the way they were layed out on the original shot has changed. (00:05:35)

Woodland Critter Christmas - S8-E14

Continuity mistake: Just after Stan returns to the forest and sees that the antichrist is born, the squirrel mentions that the antichrist will bring a thousand years of darkness. At the same moment you can see standing next to him the rabbit. Despite the fact that he was sacrificed earlier in the episode and is not seen in any of the shots before or after this.

You Got F*cked in the Ass - S8-E4

Audio problem: After Stan does the line dance while the other team announces that "its on", and the bystanders are watching. As the blonde haired white guy says "Oh Lord its on." The Asian kid from the group is saying the exact same thing. However you don't hear his voice.

Good Times With Weapons - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: When Butters is in the hospital, you see blood start coming down his cheek, but when the shot changes from a top view to a view from his feet, there is no blood running down his cheek, which should've started showing in the shot already.

Douche and Turd - S8-E8

Continuity mistake: At the dinner table when Stan tells his parents about the election, he has a glass in front of him. The glass switches from being on his left side to being on his right side between shots.

Good Times With Weapons - S8-E1

Continuity mistake: In the town hall meeting scene, a man says that he is "shocked and appalled" by what has happened. In the wide shot, he is sitting next to Liane Cartman. In the closeup, Liane is replaced by a woman dressed in purple. In the next wide shot, Liane is back.

You Got F*cked in the Ass - S8-E4

Revealing mistake: When the "Asian Kid" is first introduced on the Dance Dance Revolution machine, the arrows are going up the left side (Player 1 side) of the screen, but he is obviously playing on player 2's side. To make matters even worse, the dance pattern on screen doesn't match the way he's dancing, yet the screen also shows that he's doing pretty well.

The Passion of the Jew - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: When Kyle slides a $10 bill into the ticket booth, the $10 bill is shown lying left to right. After a couple of cuts to where the ticket taker is saying "But this is such an important film..." the $10 bill has changed positions. (00:03:00)

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.
