Episode Quotes
Kyle: Dude, what is your little brother doing here?
Stan: Ike is starting his first day of kindergarten.
Kyle: But Isn't he only 3 years old?
Stan: Yeah but he's some kind of genius so he's getting advanced placement kindergarten.
Ike: I pooped my pants.

Mr. Garrison: Oh, great! Flora's undecided! Well, you're just gonna have to sit there, Flora, and think about it until you come up with an answer.

Bill Cosby/VSM471: And so, Eric. Now you see why we must destroooy your Trapper Keeper.
Cartman: You guys. Did I mention that it has a pencil sharpener and a crayon sharpener?
Stan: Cartman, it takes over the world and destroys all of humanity!
Cartman: What would you guys have me do, huh? Walk around with just a plain old Trapper Keeper, like Kyle's? Is that what you want?!?
Stan: Yes!



Cultural References
Kyle: But dude, check out my new Trapper Keeper! It has five different compartments for each subject in school. And it's all covered with pictures from Dawson's Creek.

Dawson's Creek was a teen-oriented drama series that aired on the WB network from 1998 - 2003.

Bill: My name is Bill. Bill Cosby.

Bill Cosby is a famous American comedian and actor.

Filmore: My aunt Wosie, Wosie O'Donnell.

Filmore is talking about actress/comedian/talk show host Rosie O'Donnell. Rosie is currently starring on the female-oriented daytime talk show, The View.

Kyle: I'm going to try and break you away from the computer, Cartman. I need to remove the CPU.
Cartman: I'm afraid I can't let you do that, Kyle.

The way Cartman speaks and responds in this scene is reminiscent of the computer HAL, from the film, 2001: A Space Odyssey (1968).



Episode References
Mr. Garrison: Okay, children, let's take our seats. My name is Mr. Garrison. And I'm the new kindergarten teacher. I used to be the third grade teacher, but I had a little (makes air quotes) 'nervous breakdown' and went into the mountains where I lived off of (makes air quotes) 'rat carcasses.'

The "nervous breakdown" is a reference to the last episode, "4th Grade," when Ms. Choksondik found Mr. Garrison living like a hermit in a cave.

Bill: Ah... hello Eric. Can I be your human friend? I mean, friend?
Cartman: I don't know, dude. I'm not supposed to have any male friends that are over thirty. I kind of got screwed on that once.

Cartman is referring to the episode, "Cartman Joins NAMBLA," when the older friends he met were looking for more than just friendship.
