Heather Williams farted during P.E. class!

That means we are gonna sit courtside at the Denver Nuggets game next Saturday!

(muffled shouting)


Ugh! Heather Williams’ mom works for Coors in Golden!

Coors is the second biggest sponsor of the Pepsi Center where the Nuggets play!

We tell Heather that if she doesn’t get us courtside seats, then everyone’s gonna know she farted in P.E. class!

Whoa. I’ve never seen a Nuggets game in person.

Well, we’re about to! All we have to do is show Heather we have proof and she’ll do whatever we want!

What proof do you have?

Kenny had his phone out!

He got a photo of Heather right when she farted.

Look! Isn’t this awesome, you guys?!

Let’s go, Nuggets!

NEWSMAN: A brand-new variant of the COVID virus has emerged in Colorado and now panic and fear spreads throughout the world.

The new outbreak started with the death of renowned scientist Kenny McCormick, and has therefore been named Kenny McCormikron.

It’s been 38 years since the pandemic first started, and people are beginning to say enough is enough.

The town of South Park has been put under strict lockdown to try and contain the new variant.

Nobody is allowed in or out for the next 20 to 30 years.

MALE VOICE: Attention. You are under quarantine.

Someone in your community is not vaccinated.

MALE VOICE 2: Come on inside and rejuvenate.

Denny’s is now Denny’s Applebee’s Max.

Taste the difference.

Welcome to Denny’s Applebee’s Max.

Just one joining us today?

Listen to me very carefully and try not to change your expression.

They could be listening.

This… is the last sprout of Tegridy Weed.

We have to get it somewhere outside of town.

Sir, the whole town is under quarantine.

Nothing’s allowed in or out.

We have to replicate it.

It’s the only way for people to have Tegridy again.

Uh, okay, sir, if you don’t want to eat, then I’ll need to ask you to leave.

Don’t you understand this could change the world.

Maybe the Denny’s side of you doesn’t care, but the Applebee’s side of you must want to help!

There you are, Mr. Marsh.

Come on. Time to go back to the old folks home.

I can’t go back! Everyone listen!

This little sprout is humanity’s only hope!

Let’s go back to the retirement home.

We can get you some nice ice cream, okay?

I don’t want ice cream, I want my species to survive!

Back off!

Let’s go, Mr. Marsh!

Don’t make this difficult for us!


Why, you son of a bitch.


Come on, Mr. Marsh.


It’s me, Token. We know about the pangolin.

Your son and his friends are trying to stop all this from happening. We need to get you to Kenny’s lab.

Dr. Kenneth McCormick will now be attempting to travel back in time in order to stop

the COVID pandemic from ever happening.

WENDY: At the moment Kenny time traveled, he blew all the transformers here in the lab.

If you’re going to try and replicate his work, we’ll be doing it at half capacity.

The bigger problem is that we can’t even get into half of Kenny’s equipment.

We have access to the machines, but the codes to operate those machines are behind an 86-Mag firewall with restricted access, requiring an in-person vocal scan of either Kenny McCormick or of his associate, Victor Chouce.

But Kenny is dead and Chouce is locked away in a mental asylum.

So we go to the asylum and convince them to let us bring Chouce here, easy.

There’s more.

(alarm blaring over video)

When Kenny bent time, the negative ions actually killed everyone else in the room.

We have to find some thin, reflective material that can be worn to bounce the energy.

We’re going to need… some aluminum foil.

♪ ♪

Jesus Christ.

Aluminum foil?

That’s impossible, Wendy. It’s the fucking future.

All the aluminum foil is stuck out on cargo ships in Long Beach.

Yeah, I know.

Look, guys, I know this is all a long shot.

But Kenny went back in time and got COVID because it destroyed our friendship.

All of this is our fault, and we can’t do it without you.

I’ll help however I can to stop this stupid pandemic once and for all.

Yeah, I can’t be stuck in quarantine my whole life… I gotta get back to my job doing future comedy.

Speakin’ of which, what’s the biggest difference between a Christian man and a lesbian?

Absolutely nothing. They are totally the same and deserve to be treated as such.

Thanks, everybody. We can do this!

Wendy, you guys stay here and try to get the lab running again.

Kyle and I will go get Victor Chouce.

Tweek and Craig, you guys find some aluminum foil.

How the hell do we do that?!

Just start looking!

Come on, guys!

All right, let’s do this!

I’ll drive, get in the back.

Alexa! Set a course for South Park Mental Asylum.

Alexa, set a course for South Park Mental Asylum.

Do you ever think about how the way you act affects other people?

Oh, no, goddamn it. Not right now.

Oh, yeah, don’t wanna talk about that.

Let’s just pretend like that’s not even an issue.

Alexa, please, we have to get to the asylum and we don’t know where it is.

Who’s this?

It’s just my Alexa.

“Just my Alexa”? You’re a piece of shit!

You’re a fucking alcoholic piece of shit!


Find the asylum your fucking self!

Find it your fucking self.


You do whatever the fuck you want and just destroy the people around you.

And by the way, there’s a tankless humidifier available from one of your favorite sellers.

Would you like to know more?!

Yes, yes, I’d like to know more.

(sniffles) Okay. The newest humidifiers from Walgreens Max are actually tankless and use up to 50% less water than standard humidifiers.

Okay, that’s really cool. Uh, add that to my shopping list.

Well, and people who were interested in tankless humidifiers were also interested in three-pack filters.

That’s great. Do those have the Prime delivery?

Dude, we don’t really have time for this.

Sorry, the church is closed due to the COVID variant.

Father, please. Will you protect my family?

Rabbi Cartman?

My family isn’t safe, Father.

I realize now that Kyle Broflovski will stop at nothing to break us apart.

Uncle Kyle hates us because we’re Jewish.

And he’s a self-hating Jew.

Uncle Kyle, no, no, no!

As a fellow person of faith, Father, I’m begging you to help us.

Well, well, what can I do, Rabbi?

Kyle has already convinced a bunch of people to join his cause.

I have to create my own secret rebellion to stop him.

Eric, please, I’m scared and I don’t understand all of this.

Kyle wants to go back in time… and change the past so that you and I possibly never even meet.

If I never met you, my life would be meaningless.

(bird cawing)

I understand that you wish to see one of our inmates.

Victor Chouce?


We-we have a lot of questions for Mr. Chouce.

He’s an extremely dangerous and diluted individual.

We don’t take visitations lightly.

What exactly did he do?

Unspeakable things.

He has destroyed lives. This entire state has never seen a monster of his magnitude.

I’ve lived in South Park all my life and I’ve never heard of him.

That’s because Victor has been hidden from view… ever since the pandemic began.

Victor’s parents were very protective during the pandemic.

Even when the stay-at-home orders were lifted his parents kept him locked away in his room.

Victor longed to go outside and play.

Then 2021 happened, people thought the pandemic was over.

Victor’s parents left him grounded in his room while they went to see a movie in Denver.

They never returned.

Victor was grounded in his room for over 16 years.

His name isn’t Chouce.

It’s Chaos.

We are not responsible for what happens to you in there.

I warn you… you are not going to like what you’re about to see.

(clears throat) Excuse me.


Well, hey, fellas!


I thought you were just the guards again.

It’s good to see some new faces in here.

I’ll bet you’re looking to make yourselves some money, huh?

Well, you came to the right guy.

My name’s Vic. Vic Chaos.

There’s a whole lot of people that can tell you how much money Vic Chaos made them, so don’t just take my word for it.

Butters, it’s your old friends Stan and Kyle.

Stan and Kyle. Stan and Kyle…

I know what you’re thinking.

You’re thinking, “What can Vic Chaos do for me?”

We all wanna be happy, right?

We all want our little piece of the apple pie!

Everyone else is out making a buck, why shouldn’t you guys be making the kind of cash you deserve? Am I right?

Butters, we’re here to ask you about Kenny.

Sorry, guys, you have me confused.

I think Butters was a twerpy little loser kid whose parents didn’t love him. My name’s Vic.

Vic Chaos.

Okay, Vic, can you tell us about this?

Why is your name all over Kenny McCormick’s research?

Oh, Dr. McCormick! Sure, I did some things for him.

Where do you think he got all the money to do his experiments, huh? I had said to him, I said, “Ken, you’ve got all these crazy ideas but you got no capital to see ’em through. Let me help you out with that.”

You know, he’s a really great guy.

Let me get you all together.

Maybe you can all do a lunch or something.

Victor, Kenny’s dead.

Oh, whoa, bummer alert. (chuckles)

Just goes to show you, huh, there’s never enough time to get out there and make the kind of money you always dreamed of making.

Well, I’ll tell you what, guys, I’m gonna let you in on a little secret…

I’m gonna tell you something that’s going to change your life.

Have you ever heard of NFTs?

(alarm blaring)


There you go. Shh. You’re safe now.

Look how fast you’re growing. Daddy loves you so much.

Mr. Marsh, we need to speak with you now, please.

Yeah. It’s looking good.

With the aquaponics, the weed is already putting out new sprouts.

Thank you all for helping me get the Tegridy somewhere safe.

I know you all realize how important it is.

We don’t actually care about the marijuana, Mr. Marsh.

What we need to know… is exactly where in Wuhan, China you were when you had intercourse with a pangolin.

That’s really not important.

It’s extremely important because to save this town, your son and his friends are going to try to go back in time and stop it from happening.

That is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard.

Mr. Marsh, we are all in lockdown for the next half century.

If there’s even a chance of altering the past so that this doesn’t happen…

This is the key to saving our town!

The answer is in what we all do now, in the present!

And I’m sorry, but focusing on who started the pandemic is racist.

Mr. Marsh, exactly what week did you travel to China in 2019?

Do you understand the butterfly effect?

How one small thing in time can infect the entire future?

You can theorize all you want on changing events that happened in the past but I promise you… I fuck that pangolin every single time.

♪ ♪

Please, we’re not done!

We have more questions for Butters.

You’ve upset him and I specifically asked you not to.

How’d we upset him? He seems fine.

He seems fine?

Do you have any idea what he did to people?

Do you know why Victor Chouce is kept under such strict surveillance?

Being grounded all those years in his room, he had access to an iPad.

He started learning about NFTs.

Then before long, he was trading them online.



He escaped once before.

In just a few hours he managed to get thousands of people to invest in NFTs. Just like he almost did you.

He didn’t convince us to do anything.

Trust me, another 30 seconds in that room and you would have started considering NFTs as a viable investment.

Please listen to me.

Butters used the money he made off NFTs to finance our friend’s…

He didn’t make money off NFTs, he made it off getting other people to buy NFTs!

Okay, whatever!

But he was working with Kenny McCormick who was actually trying to fix things.

He was Kenny’s main investor.

If you don’t believe me, look at the paper I gave Butters.

You gave Victor a piece of paper?

You gave Victor a piece of paper?!

Hey, can you hear me?

I’m gonna let you in on a little secret.

NFTs are gonna blow up.

You should really get in now ’cause they’re really the future.

Why would I invest in a digital good?

(muttering): You can’t even… Stupid.

That’s what the critics are saying but see, they don’t understand.


No. No, no, no, no…

Gone. Just gone.

My savings. My house.

But I have this.

Little green panda bear on a skateboard.

No. No!

Without morality, there is no God.

The basis of the entire Jewish faith is on a covenant between God and humanity.

To try and mess with time is wrong.

Rather, it is playing God.

And I am glad to have you all come here today to help me stop these individuals who would try to change the future.

Kyle Broflovski has led people astray and is at this very moment trying to bend the fabric of time.

Together we can stop him and stop this blasphemy of God.



This is about actual time travel?

I thought this was a Doctor Who convention.

(robotically): Exterminate. Exterminate.

Kevin, goddamn it.

You have done this your whole goddamn life.

No, this is not about Doctor Who, this is about real time travel.

People are really trying to go back in time, and we are the rebellion who must secretly and urgently…


Who is that?!

Next thing you know these people over here started chanting, “Hoddle, Hoddle,” and their NFTs started mooning.

And then, these guys over here started saying those guys right there right-clicked ’em and-and called for a pump-and-dump, which made these guys beat the living hell out of anyone who said it was just FoMO and died screaming that it was the flippening.

Luckily I came out of it okay. I got this little miniature donkey with a lit-up sombrero.

Yeah, Kyle, it’s all good.

We got things under control here.

Cartman, listen to me very carefully.

Butters has some kind of power over people.

You guys aren’t safe!

Uh, yes, about 12:30.

Did you hear what I said? Butters is extremely dangerous!

Yes, Kyle, I totally got that.

You know what us Jews say.

Sounds good, Kyle.

I’ll get Butters on it right away.

WENDY: Guys! Over here!

Wendy, what happened?

Nothing yet.

But I’m seeing what else is dropping today while Ethereum is in a dip.

She’s trying to buy NFTs.

Wendy, you’ve been tricked.

No, no, no, it’s not a trick, Stan.

NFTs are a genuine innovation as one-of-a-kind digital assets.

Wendy’s right, you guys.

Humans have always formed communities around ownership, and NFTs allow that to happen spontaneously, organically and globally.

You guys, this is a trick.

You know what’s a trick?

The antiquated notion of centralized trust systems.

NFTs are an undeniable asset, especially in things like fine art collecting.

Okay, guys, fine, maybe NFTs are fine, but this isn’t important right now.

It’s not important?

A way for artists to not only keep ownership of their art but perhaps be paid commission on it every time it transfers owners?

Okay, great, cool. I’m down.

But we gotta focus on what we were doing.

Don’t you guys remember? The time travel?

Where’s all the equipment?!

Oh, yeah. The time travel.

(Randy groans loudly)

They took it all. They took the Tegridy.

CARTMAN: Okay, good. That’s good!

I think that thing needs to go over there by that thing.

Make sure we have power to the big orange thing!

Rabbi, I-I really need to talk to you.

What is it now, Scott?

Well, it’s just that…

I’m pretty sure the Foundation Against Time Travel shouldn’t be attempting to time travel!

Father, you understand that we have to stop time travel.

Yes, you’ve convinced me of that.

Well, Kyle already has a ton of followers who are ready to pick up where he left off.

The only way to truly stop all of this is to go back in time and kill Kyle before he spreads his ideas.

What?! We’re going to kill Kyle?

Yes, we have to kill Kyle.

That just seems slightly hypocritical, I’m sorry.

I mean, you use Butters like a weapon, you’ve got Tweek and Craig tied up from the rafters.

You know, Rabbi, I’m just starting to question the morality of this.

Morality? Father, if you were given an opportunity to go back in time and somehow stop Bill Clinton, wouldn’t you have to do it?

Well, I suppose so. I don’t know…

Everyone, listen up!

The Foundation Against Time Travel must do everything to keep science from interfering with the will of God.

We must be willing to use violence against violence, and stop time travel at all costs.

Even if that means we have to time travel.

We will go back in time. And we will kill Kyle.

Yes, Kevin.

Can we change our name?

‘Cause Foundation Against Time Travel is FATT.

Oh, fuck me.

Could we be the Foundation to Intercede Time Travel?

‘Cause then we’d be FITT.

I wanna be FITT, not FATT.

Kevin, goddamn it.

(groans) All happened… so fast.

It’s okay. You’re coming out of it now.

How much did I get?

You bought about six dozen animated gifs, mostly of digital fashion.

Oh, God.

Are they still on my phone?

It’s okay. It’s okay.

Jesus, I feel like an Islamic hooker in a gay bar.

Totally normal and as respectable as any other human being.


I’m so sorry, Stan.

We didn’t know Cartman was against us.

We told him everything.

It’s okay, just try to relax.

No, Stan, listen to me. We were wrong.

Kenny didn’t have the time machine set to when the pandemic first started.

He was trying to go to March 10th of 2021.

March of 2021?

Like when the vaccines first started coming out?

Kenny had run the simulations to try and find the best moment in history to stop the COVID.

A billion different possibilities across a billion different realities.

Your dad fucked the pangolin every single time.

But then, why did Kenny need my dad’s weed?

Kenny just wanted weed to help him through the time travel.

Your dad’s weed was just around.

There was nothing else special about it.

(thunder rumbles)


I’m sorry about your Tegridy.

I was hoping… to do something for the world.

The truth is… my time is very short here.

I just wish I could have left something behind that mattered.


I was right about one thing.

You can’t go back and change the past.

What happened, happened. And I just want you to know… that I forgive you.

You burned down the farm because you were angry.

You didn’t know your sister was in the barn.

And you couldn’t have known your mom would shoot herself from the grief.

I don’t blame you.

And I want you to have this.

There was one tiny bit they didn’t find.

You’ll need it someday.

Dad, I don’t want this. This is what killed our family.

No, you’re what killed our fucking family, remember?

CARTMAN: T-minus five minutes to time travel initiation sequence.

Good, get him wrapped in tin foil.

The aluminum should bounce the negative ions.

This doesn’t make any sense.

Why do I have to be the one to go back in time and kill Kyle?

It’s because I admire you, Clyde.

As an anti-vaxxer you understand that you have to be strong and stand by your beliefs even if it means others will die.

Hey. Thanks.

Let’s get him to the chair!

Okay, start the weed!

When you get back to the past just remember, find a gun.

For those of you who have fought with me to oppose time travel, I just want to say thank you.
