"DIE HIPPIE, DIE!"
Written by
Trey Parker

[An elderly woman's home. Cartman rings her doorbell,
and she
answers it. Cartman is dressed in an orange hazmat suit
and is
carrying a tank of something on his back]
CARTMAN
Hello, ma'am. I'm working to clean up
the neighborhood from parasites. Do
you mind if I take a quick look around
your house? I'm afraid you may have
hippies.
ELDERLY WOMAN
Hippies?
CARTMAN
Yeah, they've been poppin' up all over
the neighborhood lately. Ms. Nelson
next door had seven hippies in her basement;
they usually live in colonies. Hm,
I don't like the sound of that. Could
I take a look in your attic?
[The attic. He opens the door and looks in. He gets out
a flashlight,
turns it on, and looks around again. He stops after a
few seconds.]
CARTMAN
Oh yeah, boy. Take a look at this, ma'am.
See that? Hippies.
ELDERLY WOMAN
Oh my.

CARTMAN
These are what we call the uh giggling
stoners. Pretty common form of hippie,
usually found in the attics. Problem
is, if you see one hippie, there's probably
a whole lot more you're not seein'.
Uh, whe-where's the backyard.
[The backyard. The elderly lady opens the door and
Cartman walks
out onto the back porch]
CARTMAN
Yep, that's what I thought. See that?
You've got a drum circle in your backyard.
ELDERLY WOMAN
Oh, well they showed up a few days ago,
but I didn't think they were hurting
anything.
CARTMAN
Yeah. You know, I had a guy in Jackson
county. He had a little drum circle
in his backyard. It turned into a drum
circle four miles in diameter. You get
a few hippies playing drums and next
thing you know, you got yourself a colony.
ELDERLY WOMAN
Oh dear.
[back inside the house]
ELDERLY WOMAN
Oh, well, so, so what do I do?
CARTMAN
Well, your attic could be so we can
fumigate with polymerethane. The drum
circle we're gonna have to gas. Goddamnit!
HIPPIE 1
Whoa, how did I get here? Man, I'm
so high.
CARTMAN
Goddamn hippie!
HIPPIE 1

City Council meeting. the mall is a way for the corporate fatcats to imprison you into a life of servitude. KYLE'S FATHER We'll wish we spent the money when we have a lawsuit on our hands.

Mayor McDaniels is seated at the head of a boardroom table. On his cap he wears a peace sign] STAN Sign.

CARTMAN Mayor. and if you all don't give me a moment of your time. they will all pale in comparison to what we're looking at now.. Reggae on the River. at a rate of two hippies per hour. and here. something very big is happening. what the hell are you talking about? CARTMAN I know hippies. Three new drum circles have sprouted up here. At first I thought maybe it was just a coincidence. even weeks. For the past several days I've been. if you will. Burning Man. Look: When hippies start to nest in a new area. MAYOR MCDANIELS Kid.. One that last for days. They're all growing in diameter. I've kept this town free of ..

CARTMAN Ti's...MAYOR MCDANIELS Kid. it can lead to a music festival. In my professional opinion. is that the hippies are conglomerating. noticing a steep rise in the number of hippies coming to town. I think that they're setting up for a. hippie music festival. I've hated them all my life.. Then I saw this. it draws other hippies in.. it's simple science. we're have a city council meeting.. What this means.. .. here. Woodstock. I think we're looking at a full-blown hippie jam festival the size of which we've never seen. With the right weather conditions and topography.

the corporations take their profits and invest it in the war machine while keeping everyone blind. draw everyone here. what the hell are you doing?! . so my idea was this: Let's have like a weeklong music festival. so how do we get back at them? KYLE Yeah. It's potheads. I know what these people are capable of.. get him out of here. what the hell?! CARTMAN I knew you were trying to have a hippie jam festival! All right. and then together..
