South Park: With Apologies to Jesse Jackson

When Randy utters a racial slur on national television, it not only causes him to be shunned by society, it also strains Stan's friendship with Token.

Episode Goofs
When Randy makes it to the final round of Wheel of Fortune, he is given the letters R, T, S, L, and E to start the final puzzle. He then guesses B, N, G, and O as his own letters. However on the real game show, the letters already given to you include the letter N, therefore guessing it would be unnecessary.
