List of South Park episodes

"Probably" is episode 58 of the Comedy Central series South Park. It originally aired on July 26, 2000. It is the second part of a two-part episode, the first being "Do the Handicapped Go to Hell?"


In this episode, the South Park children build a church to live in sinlessness, and do not go to school, avoid home as much as possible, and listen earnestly to Cartman, who acts like a televangelist preacher. Meanwhile, Kenny calls from Ensenada, Mexico (about 60 miles (95 km) south of Tijuana on the Baja California peninsula) where the bus he was run over by in the previous episode dragged him and which he thinks is Hell, and tells about the "Underworld" for Cartman's sermons: "that everyone in Hell speaks Spanish, that in Hell there is water, but if you drink it you will bleed out your ass for 7 hours, and there are a lot of trinket stores that all sell the same trinkets."

Meanwhile, in the real Hell, Satan sleeps with Saddam. He then tells Chris about what happened. Chris forgives Satan, which actually upsets Satan more. Satan screams at Chris saying that he wishes that he would at least be angry at what happened. Then, Chris and Saddam keep getting into fights, which lead to the two murdering each other; nevertheless, they keep reappearing in Hell to kill each other again, and Satan wonders if he should be with Saddam, whom he finds sexually attractive, or Chris, who is kinder and nicer. JonBenét Ramsey, who is in hell, then suggests that he ask God for help.

In the meantime, The Hell Director welcomes a group of new arrivals to Hell. Some of them are confused, saying they had been devout Protestants, or Jehovah's Witnesses, and shouldn't be in Hell. The Director tells them "I'm sorry; I'm afraid you were wrong... You chose the wrong religion." They ask, "Well, what was the correct religion?" The Director informs them: "I'm afraid it was the Mormons'. Yes, the Mormons' was the correct answer."

Meanwhile, Cartman has risen up his church to almost a cult form, and despite attempts by Sister Anne, Cartman refuses to disband his church, stating that "...The only people they (the kids) can trust are me and Jesus", And he begins to practice exorcism and Pentecostal healing, which he learns from watching a preacher on television while working on one of his sermons. Strangely enough, Cartman is actually able to make Timmy walk before he falls through the poorly made floor.

Satan goes and sees God (a strange, deformed, furry hippopotamus or something) in Heaven which is occupied solely by Mormons (aside from God who professes to be a Buddhist); God calls Satan a pussy for complaining about such a problem, saying to him, "You got kicked out of here for being a headstrong rebel, and now you're a whiny little bitch." God further tells Satan that he should dump them both and try to learn to appreciate himself before he tries to find a relationship. Satan, realizing that God is right, agrees with Him and thanks Him for how clear He makes things sometimes.

Back in South Park, Cartman reveals to Stan and Kyle that he, in fact, only opened the church to con kids out of money, and not out of religious fervor (according to him, people can easily be forgiven by God). Stan and Kyle are both disillusioned and angered by this, but they can't do anything about as long as other children give in their money. Sister Anne then manages to disband Cartman's church by asking Jesus to visit. Jesus says to the children that God doesn't want them to be afraid of Hell or always praise his name, but to help others and live good happy lives. The children, touched by this, agree with Jesus to go back to school, and decided to leave, much to everyone's (including Jesus, Stan, and Kyle) relief and to Cartman's anger. Deciding to punish Cartman for his sins, Jesus sends Cartman somewhere worse than Hell - Mexico - and Cartman happens to meet Kenny at the bus stop, much more to his anger. This is one of the few episodes in the first five seasons of South Park where Kenny does not die.

A similar event happens in Hell, Satan, tells Saddam and Chris that he doesn't want to be with either of them, and tells them to go away. Chris agrees and goes away, but Saddam doesn't, saying that he won't let Satan leave him. Even after Satan explains his intent to be single, Saddam continues to harass him, the Devil then angrily makes a hole on Saddam's chest, revealing that he has "Asked an old friend for a favor", and Saddam is forced to go live up in Heaven with the Mormons. This, to him, is Hell.
