South Park: Fun with Veal

The boys take a field trip to a local cattle farm and learn where veal comes from. They are horrified at how the baby cows are treated, so they steal them and hide them in Stan's room. As the boys wage their protest, they are treated as terrorists and a negotiator is brought in. Soon, Stan refuses to eat any meat, and he develops a very mysterious illness.

Ms. Choksondik's 4th grade class goes on a trip to the farm, where the children discover that veal is made from baby calves that are starved and tied up so that the meat is extra tender. The boys are horrified (except Cartman) and vow to save the calves from certain death. The other boys are able to convince Cartman to help them smuggle the calves out and bring them to Stan's house where he barricades the door. He says they're not coming out until they have guarenteed safety of the calves...

Episode Quotes
Stan: Wait a minute. Veal is... little baby cows?
Rancher Bob: Yepper.
Kyle: Then why the hell do they call it 'veal'?
Rancher Bob: Well, if we called it 'little baby cow' people might not eat it.

Kyle: Dude! How are we gonna move twenty three calves to your house?
Stan: I don't know.
Cartman: I've got it. We could kill Butters, and then float the calves on a river of blood.
Kyle: Don't be stupid, Cartman! Butters doesn't have that much blood in him!
Butters: Uh, yeah I do too!

Sheila: (through the door) Kyle, if you don't do as you're told, I'm going to be very angry!
Kyle: Well you made me eat veal and didn't tell me what it was. So go ahead and be angry, you baby calf-killing bitch!

Cartman: Oh, I'm sorry. I thought we were talkin' here, but I guess you're not talkin' to me. Goodbye.
Glen Dumont: No no wait, oh, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. Yeah, you're right. What reason do you have to trust me? I'm just a guy from Lakewood trying to make ends meet, you know? Just a blue-collar guy like your dad.
Cartman: Don't have a dad, Mike. That's not gonna work.

Cultural References
