Or all of Malcolm's dialogue
"Ahhhh Dickens. The imagery of cobblestone streets, craggy London buildings and nutmeg filled Yorkshire puddings. Hello. I'm a British person. For years now the character Pip has been featured prominently in the American show South Park. However many Americans don't realize where Pip came from. He's the prowling, adorable little Englishman from Charles Dickens' timeless classic 'Great Expectations'. And so tonight the makers of South Park have agreed to take a beak from their regular show and instead present the prestigious Dickens' tale in its' entirety from beginning to end. Indeed after watching this show you'll know the timeless classic as if you read the cliff notes themselves. Our story is set in England in the small town of Draftherdshire upon Topsmart. Where a young blond haired boy named Pip was on the way to see his parents.
Mrs. Haverham's robot monkeys prove a formidable foes, but Pip is not about to let Estella's soul be consumed by the Genesis device. And now the thrilling conclusion to 'Great Expectations'
