Goth Kid: We’re gonna go to the graveyard and write poems about death and how pointless life is.
Butters: Uh, um, no thanks. I love life.
Stan: Huh? But you just got dumped.
Butters: Well yeah, and I’m sad, but at the same time I’m really happy that something could make me feel that sad. It’s like, it makes me feel alive, you know? It makes me feel human. And the only way I could feel this sad now is if I felt somethin’ really good before. So I have to take the bad with the good, so I guess what I’m feelin’ is like a, beautiful sadness.
