I remember doing that as a kid. It was pointless, but worth it to see if what you built would win. Today, it's pointless.

Um, yeah. I've just been too busy talking about the cars to bring it up. :oops: :D

I'm trying to think of how the climax of this episode will be. The climax will obviously be the race itself but that's like 10 seconds or so of a small wooden car moving. How the hell are Matt and Trey going to make the little race itself not seem really lame?

Yay! This sounds interesting.
Of course Kyle won't be in the scout part of this one; he's in Jewscouts. ^^
Favorite South Park characters:
1. Eric Cartman
2. Kenny McCormick
3. Stan Marsh
4. Kyle Brofloski

I have some predictions:

Randy is going to be obsessed with building the perfect car and winning. He may even 'cheat' in order to win, in which case he'd have to realize that cheating to win is against the Boy Scout's purpose of 'building character.' Stan will resent his dad's enthusiasm and will lose interest in the Derby.

Sharon will try to help Randy come to his senses to no avail (like in The Losing Edge) and we'll probably see Randy in some sight gag that reveals how out of proportion his reactions to the situation is (like when he shaved his head and put himself in a wheelchair in Bloody Mary.)

I could be wrong, but I think by now the Randy/Stan dynamic is pretty well established.

As for the episode, there's a sit-com cliche' they're going to have to either avoid or embrace:
The dad who's only supposed to "help" his kid build something, but winds up doing the whole thing himself. And in the end we all learn a lesson about something and there's a touching, father/offspring moment and the audience goes, "Aawwww...."

They either have to avoid this completely or just totally make fun of it.

Oh, man, if they end up doing that cliche without completely making fun of it, I'm going to be pissed. I
have seen it HOW many times? If they do it, they need to make it look really, really, stupid. That way next time it comes up I can just start laughing instead of getting annoyed.

I hope its a really simple episode with good dialogue... SP has memorable dialogue, but part of that is how much certain themes are repeated in it... like last week, Kanye couldn't go very long without saying, once again, that he was a genius or not a fish. I love when the characters feel a bit more real; like in something like Home Movies.

I expect Randy will flashback to his days of building a car for the Derby.
Will it get out of hand? Probably.
Looks like a good episode...

One can only hope it's a Randy heavy episode. I think they could make a side show with Randy as the main character and it would be golden!

I like the idea of a Fast and Furious spoof. Randy's gonna try and put nitrous in the derby car or something. Stan will have to face some Japanese souped up Honda derby car or something in the end.

Make me laugh Randy!

going back to that cliche point, they probably are gonna make fun of it. randy is totally the dad to do something like that, so i wouldn't be surprised if he goes too in depth with making just a stupid wooden car. i just hope it's a good one with a simple plot, those are always the best.
