Trey took the ratings for "Sarcastaball" into account. Here Comes Honey Boo Boo had a 1.4 rating while South Park had a 1.0 raiting. Granted, Here Comes Honey Boo Boo ended its first half-season when "Sarcastaball" aired. The rating for this episode was also 1.0, which can be blamed on the Obama/Romney debate (that debate took up the first four rating slots).

In the scene where Cartman is holding the Candy Corn Oreos, some of the dialog was changed from preview to episode. Most notably, his question, "Doesn't what bother me?" was dropped

In the gym scene where Cartman is lecturing the other students, Kyle's "...What??" is similarly dropped, as is Cartman's "Lady GaGa" reference.

One wonders why Cartman keeps on trying to get into Kyle's bathroom when he already determined that he can't get in due to accessibility issues.

Honey Boo Boo and Cartman both like Mountain Dew. Fun fact: Mountain Dew began life as a whiskey mix, but soon became a soda all its own.

The first time the boys followed Cartman around, it was to get footage of him having tea with his toys and sending it to America's Funniest Home Videos. Now it's so Token's new production company can get its first hit TV show

The Randy Newman song "Fatty Doo Doo" parodied is "You've Got A Friend In Me," from the first Toy Story movie.

"We're in the pipe, five by five." - from Aliens.

Sketti is short for spaghetti, prepared with ketchup instead of a spaghetti sauce.

The crewman who greets James Cameran when he comes out of the bathysphere has a mustache in profile, but when he faces the camera the mustache disappears.

When Cartman was bumming about his scooter situation, they used the music from Jared Has AIDS when he's all bumming about everyone being pissed at him.
