Synopsis Edit

After becoming grossly enamored with the Lord of the Rings film series, Stan, Kyle and Cartman go on a "quest" to bring the movie videotape to Butters' house. However, they don't realize that what they really bring him is a copy of Backdoor Sluts 9 - the raunchiest, hardcore pornographic movie ever. When Stan's parents realize that they have accidentally switched the tapes, they try to catch up to the boys before anything terrible happens. Butters views the film, mistakenly believing that he is watching Lord of the Rings. Psychologically scarred, he becomes obsessed with the movie, and suffers a severe mental breakdown when Stan and the others take on a second quest to return the tape to The Two Towers video store.

Quotes Edit

  • Randy Marsh: Alright, now listen kids. There's some things that we need to put into context for you. You see, a man puts his penis into a woman's vagina for both love and pleasure. But sometimes the woman lays on top of the man facing the other way so that they can put each other's genitals in their mouths. This is called 69ing, and it's normal.


  • Gerald Broflovski: Now, on the double penetration boys, you see, sometimes when a woman has sex with more than one man, each man makes love to a different orifice.
  • Randy Marsh: That's right. It's something adults can do with really good friends in a comfortable setting.


  • Randy Marsh: Well, y-you see, when a-when a man and a woman fall in love, the-the man puts his penis in the woman's vagina. It's called lovemaking and it's part of being in love.
  • Token Black: And when the woman has four penises in her at the same time, then stands over the men and pees on them, is that part of being in love too?


  • Token Black: Five midgets, spanking a man covered with Thousand Island dressing. Is that making love?
