List of South Park episodes

"Breast Cancer Show Ever" is the ninth episode of the twelfth season of the animated series South Park. It first aired on October 15, 2008.[1][2] In the episode, Cartman's disrespectful behavior puts him on the wrong side of Wendy Testaburger when he mocks her presentation on breast cancer awareness.

The episode was written and directed by series co-founder Trey Parker, and was rated TV-MA in the United States.



The episode begins with Cartman mocking Wendy's presentation on breast cancer awareness. Mr. Garrison does little to stop him and after class, Wendy announces she is going to fight Cartman after school. Cartman tries to call off the fight with apologies, bribery, and desperate claims. When Wendy tells him she will "shove your ass down your neck and make you munch on your underwear!" he painfully chokes down his underwear in an attempt to appease her, but this only disgusts and angers her.

Cartman tries to convince Stan to talk Wendy out of it, but Stan does not believe he can do anything to stop her. Desperate to avoid the fight, Cartman defecates on Mr. Garrison's desk, earning him a detention and Butters, Craig and Jimmy tell him there are rumors that he got detention to avoid the fight, which Wendy has rescheduled for the following morning.

Later, Cartman has his mother convince Wendy's parents not to let her fight, but continues to taunt her, as do the other students. When Cartman continues to taunt her in class, she nearly fights him but is called to Principal Victoria's office. Much to Wendy's surprise, Principal Victoria explains she is a breast cancer survivor and implies that Wendy should fight Cartman the same way Principal Victoria fought her cancer, telling her, with pointed allusions to Cartman, that cancer is "a fat little lump that needs to be destroyed," and "you refuse to let that fat little lump make you feel powerless."

Wendy finally meets Cartman on the playground for the fight, and although he does briefly gain the upper hand, Wendy dominates the fight and ultimately thrashes him- repeatedly smashing his face into the monkey bars and kicking him on the ground- and emerges victorious, shocking their onlooking classmates into silence. Cartman declares that his friends will not find him cool any more, but they tell him they always hated him and always will, stating that they cannot possibly think any lower of him. Cartman takes this to mean that they are pretending to hate him in order to make him feel better, and he walks away happy.

Cultural references

The plot of the episode is loosely based on the films Three O'Clock High, Snatch[3] and There Will Be Blood.[4]
