South Park: Death

Stan's grandfather turns 102, and all he really wants for his birthday is to die (whether it's by his or someone else's hands), so he begins pestering his grandson (Stan) to kill him, which makes Stan conflicted over whether or not it's okay to assist someone with suicide. Meanwhile, Kyle's mother (named Carol in this episode, though later episodes have her name as Sheila) begins an anti-indecency campaign against Cartoon Central airing the gross-out Canadian show, "Terrence and Phillip."

Episode Quotes
Grandpa: You can kill me, can't you?
Eric Cartman: I would never kill somebody. Not unless they pissed me off.
Grandpa: Oh, is that a fact? Well, let me tell you something porky. Your mom was over here earlier, and I humped her like a little bitch.
Eric Cartman: What?
Grandpa: That's right.
Stan: Grandpa!
Grandpa: And then, I dug up your great-grandma's skeleton and had my way with her too.
Eric Cartman: Eh!
Grandpa: Choice piece of ass your great-grandma.
Eric Cartman: You piece of crap. I'll kill you!
Grandpa: That's the spirit, tubby.

Grandpa: What has America's youth come to? Kids won't even kill their own grandparents.

Mr. Garrison: I think I got that stomach flu from Kenny. I'm getting the green apple splatters!

Stan: Jesus, what happens if someone really wants to die and you kill him?
Jesus: I'm not touching that with a sixty foot pole.
Stan: God damn it!
Jesus: I heard that.

Cultural References
Visual: Cartoon Central

When the South Park P.T.A. goes to New York, they boycott outside a television network's studio. A sign on the building reads 'Cartoon Central'. This is a parody of the network South Park airs on, Comedy Central.

Kyle: Yeah, there's this guy named Jack Leborkian that goes around and murders people that ask him to, and he doesn't get in any trouble at all.

Kyle is referring to Dr. Jack Kevorkian, a pathologist who defends terminal patients' right to die. Dr. Kevorkian supposedly has assisted at least 130 patients in their suicides.

John Warzog: Ladies and gentlemen, your Nazi-esque tactics of trying to stink us out with your rancid feces … has worked. Therefore, today we will be officially taking Terrance & Phillip off the network and replacing it with reruns of She's the Sheriff, starring Suzanne Somers.

She's the Sheriff, starring Suzanne Somers, was a sitcom that ran from 1987 - 1989.

Stan: (listens to music in Grampa's boom box) Let me out grampa! (tries to open the door) I can't take it anymore, this music is terrible... it's, it's cheesy, but lame and eerily soothing at the same time!

The music Grampa plays is reminiscent of Enya's "Orinoco Flow (Sail Away)."
