Trivia

  • According to this episode, Stan apparently has a stronger digestive system than Cartman, or as Cartman puts it, a "golden rectum of the Gods".
  • While waiting at the Denver's Hospital for Children, Kenny is seen reading a Coco magazine.
  • Cartman said that they still show Billy Mays' commercials, but they are actually taken over by his friend and co worker, Anthony Sullivan.

Continuity

Goofs

  • When Billy Mays is trying to sell his products in Purgatory, he is seated next to Kennedy and Richardson and behind some background characters. At the end, when they land in Hell, he is seated next to someone else. At the part where all the celebrities yell, Mays is no longer present.
  • In the scene where Cartman shows them Mays selling a product for cleaning blood stains out of underwear, they start out in Cartman's house when they go to the TV. However, when they go back to see the boys' reaction to the commercial, they are in Kyle's house.
  • In a deleted scene, viewable on the Season 13 DVD and Blu-ray, where the boys and Michael Jackson (in Ike's body) were in Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Glendale, California, the tombstone shows a death date of 25 July - Jackson actually died on 25 June. However, many people believed this to be a clue that Jackson is alive.
  • The male doctor says he will let Dr. Phillips take care of it, but the woman's tag says, "Dr. Tangina."

Hidden Visitors

  • When Ike is announced winner of the pageant, a hidden Visitor wearing a wig and makeup is visible in the last row of the theater.
