Episode Quotes
Token: Mom? Dad? Why do we have a bigger house than everybody else in South Park?
Bob: Well, because we have more money, son.
Token: I know. But why?
Bob: W... Well, because we went to graduate school and therefore have more lucrative jobs than most people in town. For instance, your mother is a chemist for a pharmaceutical company, whereas your friend Eric Cartman's mother is a crack whore. One pays more than the other.

Token: I'm just so happy you guys moved into town. You see, I used to be the only rich kid. All the other families here are kinda low to middle-income.
Lisa: Why? What happened to all their money?
Token: Well, they never really had any money.
Lisa: Well, then, why don't their daddies just act in a movie?

Episode Goofs
At the beginning of the episode when Butters is at the front of the class giving his volcano report, you can also see him seated in the classroom.
