Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park, are still bothered about the episode of their show that was pulled. The episode, “Trapped in the Closet,” featured Tom Cruise as a character. Unfortunately, the episode was poised to air around the theatrical release of Mission Impossible: III. Paramount, who owns both South Park AND the Mission Impossible franchise, refused to air the episode.
“So there are two things we can’t do on Comedy Central: show Muhammad or Tom Cruise,” Trey Parker said.
Comedy Central president Doug Herzog admitted, “It’s tough, but I think I would say we did overreact. … Matt and Trey enjoy a fair amount of creative freedom. History might show that we overreacted, and we will live with that.”
South Park has been a favorite of ours for quotations. You can see the whole collection here:

As I’ve written about before, one of the nice things about the CBS drama Criminal Minds is that it often includes quotations in the narration, and unlike most quotations you’ll hear on TV, they’re accurate for the most part.
Since the show is shown on Wednesdays at 9:00 Eastern/Pacific, I’m featuring quotations from the show each Wednesday until I catch up. Here’s the third batch of quotations, from approximately episodes 12-14:
