The parents are worried about their missing children, thinking they ran away, get together to post missing persons fliers around town. Meanwhile, the children use the TV on the school bus and see the Channel 4 News report about themselves. Stan Marsh's father, Randy Marsh, along with the other parents and Mr. Garrison, sing for the kids to come home. When the kids see this, they start laughing at how ridiculous that looks. Mr. Marsh does a solo, singing for Stan to come home, causing Kyle to laugh at him and saying "Your dad is an idiot!" After Mr. Marsh finishes singing, Mr. Broflovksy does a solo, singing for Kyle to come home. Kyle's response would naturally be "My dad is an idiot", but he is too stunned to say anything after insulting Stan's dad for doing what his own dad is now doing.
Runaway, come home. We love you just as you are.
Runaway, come home. We're sorry things went this far.
