T: yeah i was drunk then!
B: tell them to call me
T: yeah! brooke's got
all the money!
J: what kinda dough we

T: it literally would
break down to probably like still 50 grand a year..
J: and then you have to
split that between the two of you?
M: well yeah, and then
T: you gotta have the
agents and the lawyers and the blahblahbblah. but we're having
fun, i mean thats, you know..

M: we don't have any money
T: and we're not sellouts.
thats what happens you make money and everyone is like "sellout!"
and we haven't changed the show any i mean we haven't changed
what we do but you just make money and people call you a sellout,
and it hurts ..it hurts
M: i like being a sellout
if its that.
J: but you know it doesnt
hurt as much as not having any of the money.
T: thats true. people
dont realize that matt and i have feelings...
J: yeah. well now the
new season starts what next week?
T: it starts wednesday
J: it starts wednesday.
that would be next week.
T: that would be next
M: the same day as "godzilla"..
T: yeah "godzilla"
opens that night so we're gonna get like a .2 rating ..
J: you see your artists.
you see the money is already talking.
T: no see but the ratings
M: we just wanna see "godzilla".
J: tell people more about
the new episodes?
T: well godzilla comes..no.
this episode is about, there's one little character named
kyle who's jewish, because matt's jewish.
T: and his little brother
ike, his little baby brother has to have his bris and be circumcised
and kyle finds out what this means and panics.
J: now we have a clip
here of this lovely heartwarming moment. this is like a little
house on the praire kind of scene. a coming of age.
J: alright lets take a
(they roll the clip)
J: let me ask you. did
you guys-when you originally went in to pitch this show..i
mean how? its seems like it'd be a hard sell..
T: actually the first
time..when we first had the idea we knew we wanted to do this
show about this town in south park, but we called it the mr.
hankey show. and it was all about..cause there's this character
who's a talking piece of poo named mr. hankey. and we're pitching
it to an executive at fox actually and we're like "its
a talking poo but he's got a sailors hat." and they were
just like "umm...no" so then we revamped it and
we came up with the name that..you know
M: we actually did the
first 7 shows just to get to be able to put mr. hankey on
M: the whole point of
south park was mr. hankey
J: so the artistic integrity
stayed with you.
M: we worked a long time
to get that mr. hankey on the air.
J: now how about you're
movie? you've got this like featured lenghthed motion picture
coming out. BASEketball?
T: we star in it-
M: yeah, but its not our
movie , we acted in it.
T:david zucker you know
he did airplane and naked gun and all that..
J: oh yeah! he's very
T: he's totally cool.
and we just act in it. the big misnomer is that south park
got big and all of a sudden its like "oh act in our movie"
but the truth is they asked us to act in this movie before
south park was on the air. so we did it thinking alright no
one would know who we are so who cares.
M: well we thought south
park would be canceled too-.
T: yeah we thought we'd
be like 6 episodes-
J: well i'm sorry to disappoint
T: no but its a cool movie..
J: will you come back
for the movie?
T: yeah we'll come back
for the movie we'll show a clip.
J: yeah we'll show a clip.
(matt and trey stayed
out there for the remainder of the show but this is just their
