    A.W.E.S.O.M.-O: Lame.

    Cartman: I took a crap in the principal's purse. Seven times. Then there was the time I convinced a woman to have an abortion so I could build my own Shakey's Pizza. I pretended to be retarded and joined the Special Olympics. Tried to have all of the Jews exterminated last Spring. Ahhh, oh, yeah - there's this one kid whose parents I had killed and made into chili which I then fed to the kid.
    Butters: Boy, oh boy, Eric, you got a lot to atone for.

    Butters: Well, there's this ghost, see? Only it probably isn't a ghost, ih-it's just a delusion brought on by my trauma. Well I'm supposed to heh, help him, find out why his spirit is wanderin' the Earth, even though I know that I'm most likely just completely insane.

    Butters: [as Marjorine] Well, I'm just a typical little girl. I like dancin', and ponies, a-a-and... getting my snootch pounded on Friday nights.
    Clyde: Nice.
    Ms. Garrison: Now Marjorine, that's not very lady-like. Us Colorado girls love to get pounded in the snizz just like any woman but we keep it to ourselves.

    After Cartman tries to take a picture with his wiener in Butters' mouth, his parents panic and believe him to be bi-curious. Butters is sent to Christian conversion therapy camp while Cartman is blackmailed by Stan, Kyle and Kenny.

    Memorable Quotes:

    Butters: All right. All right that does it! I am sick and tired of everyone telling me I'm confused! I wasn't confused until other people started telling me I was! You know what I think? I think maybe you are the ones who are confused!
    Bradley: Yeah.
    Butters: I'm not gonna be confused any more just because you say I should be! My name is Butters, I'm eight years old, I'm blood type O, and I'm bicurious! And even that's okay! Because if I'm bicurious, and I'm somehow made from God, then I think your God must be a little bicurious himself!

    Director: We will now hear a sermon from Pastor Phillips. For those of you who are new to camp, Pastor Phillips is somebody who has broken free of the bonds that afflict you.
    Butters: He's bi-curious too?
    Director: Not anymore. Because Pastor Phillips prayed, and by the hand of Jesus Christ, he's now completely cured! Let's hear it for Pastor Phillips, kids!
