What It's About: After several long, long weeks of waiting, Mephisto has completed his results and will now tell us who Cartman's father is. Unfortunately, something goes terribly wrong. Somebody shoots him before he gets a chance to speak. While Chef, Cartman, Kyle, Stan, and Kenny (yes, he comes back) take Mephisto to the hospital, the remaining members of the South Park community are trying to determine the killer using America's Most Wanted. Unfortunately, there is a snow storm, stranding the Chef and the kids at the hospital and the adults in the South Park television studio. Chef and the kids are forced to become doctors, while the adults in the television studio have to resort to what they dread most...cannibalism.
Things to Watch Out For:
-Kenny can be heard saying "Oh my God, they killed Mephisto", "This is team B", and "Are you fucking kidding me?" at various points in the episode.
-Previous episode references to #200: Not Without My Anus and #113: Cartman's Mom is a Dirty Slut.
-An alien is in the background in Mephisto's hospital room of possible suspects for Cartman's father
-Frozen rats on Kenny's head

Kenny's Death Scene: Sacrifices himself to save the injured people of
the hospital by activating the back-up generator...with his bare hands.
His electrocuted body is later found with rats frozen to his head.
