episode where Cartman is frozen in an avalanche and returns to civilization 500 years later (complete with a Buck Rogers
opening credits montage and Gil Gerard hairstyle).

: Uhh, what kind of output does this have? This is some ancient Super-VHS output or somethin'. I can't connect it to your float screen.
: There's gotta be some way to hook it up! It's the freakin' future!
: It may be the future for you, but I can't hook up anything to a float screen without at least a laser-7 output.
