"D-Yikes!" is the sixth episode of Season Eleven, and the 159th overall episode of South Park. It aired on April 11, 2007.
Ms. Garrison gets dumped again, after complaining about men she is told about lesbianism. Unfortunately, the lesbian bar Les Bos has been bought by Persians.
Ms. Garrison enters her classroom as her students are settling in, and vents some anger she had built up for a bad blind date she had the night before. She yells and insults the students, just before assigning their homework, which will be to read 'The Old Man and the Sea,' and to write an essay about it over the weekend and have it finished by Monday. Stan, Kyle, Kenny and Cartman are not happy about the fact they will have to spend their whole weekend doing homework, but Cartman has a plan that will fix their problem. Cartman brings the three others to the back of a truck rental place, where a group of Mexicans are located. Cartman tells them to read the book, and write four different essays for them, and the boys go off to enjoy their weekend.
Meanwhile, Mrs. Garrison goes to the all-female gym Curves to work out, and still release some built up anger. As she curses out men on the treadmill, a woman named Allison gets onto the treadmill beside her, and the two strike up a conversation, sharing a common dislike of men. Allison then invites Mrs. Garrison down to the all female bar, Les Bos. It doesn't take Mrs. Garrison to long to realize though that Les Bos is a Lesbian Bar, and runs off to the bathroom horrified. Allison follows her, and the talk the two have makes Mrs. Garrison wonder about her sexuality, and the two end up kissing, and then having sex all night.
The four boys return on Monday morning to the Mexicans out back by the Truck Rental place to pick up their essay from the Mexicans. The Mexicans read the books, but did not write essays. Instead, they wrote to their esses (Friends). The boys blame Cartman for the misunderstanding, and they find out at school everyone else did their book reports. They are surprised though when Mrs. Garrison gives them more time for their report. She then tells her students that she is gay, to which Stan replies "Again?" The class likes this newfound personality in their teacher, and encourages her in her choice.
That night Mrs. Garrison returns to Les Bos, a lot more confidently then the night before. She makes small talk with people, but then gets into a fight with another lesbian, which is interrupted when a woman comes in and tells them some bad news. Les Bos is being closed down for good, because it is being bought out by Persians. Herbert Garrison is not happy about this, and refuses to leave. She brings the lesbians to Mayor McDaniels to try and save Les Bos, but the mayor sends them away from her office. Mrs. Garrison does not give up though, and encourages her fellow lesbians not to give up hope. A Persian representative visits Les Bos to talk to the lesbians, to try and reason with them, but has to deal with Mrs. Garrison. After meeting heavy resistance from the woman at the bar, the Persian says, "Look, we don't have to offer you anything. So, I don't know why you’re being so difficult, this is crazy!"
Mrs. Garrison responds with, "No. This isn't crazy. THIS IS LES BOS!" (A parody of a famous line from the movie 300) and then kicks the Persian representative in the balls. Because of this, the fact the lesbians were refusing to give up their bar hit the news, and lesbians everywhere began to support their fight. The Persian representative returned to his co-workers, and told them of how the 30 Lesbians were refusing to give up the bar, and so called more Persians for help. The Persians prepared for an attack, and charged Les Bos, and the Lesbians that stood outside. The fight that followed only involved pushing and shoving back and forth, and in the end the Persian grew tired and retreated. The lesbians celebrated their victory, as the Persian returned to their HQ, where they confronted their boss, Raluf Xerxes. Xerxes gets angry, and decides he must confront the Lesbians himself.
At Les Bos, Mrs. Garrison comes up with a plan to send in Mexicans to Club Persh, the Persian base, and dig up any information they can to use against the Persians. A full day passed, and the lesbians were getting tired. To keep them energetic, Mrs. Garrison made coffee, and after that the Mexicans came back with some valuable information on Xerxes. When Xerxes arrives and confronts Mrs. Garrison, who reveals that they know Xerxes is actually a woman, and threaten to expose her secret. When Mrs. Garrison tells her that lesbians accept woman no matter who they are or how they look, Xerxes is delighted, and ends up having sex with Mrs. Garrison. Xerxes then decides to let Les Bos stay, and the lesbians celebrate.
When Allison question Mrs. Garrison why she isn't teaching right now, she tells her that the school hired someone to fill in for her, which turn out to be the Mexicans who are teaching the class Math, and Kyle says he is actually learning something for once.

Mrs. Garrison takes a stand in the name of saving the one place that lets her be the woman she is.
The episode is rated TV-MA, and is a parody of the film 300.
When the episode begins, Mrs. Garrison storms into her classroom enraged over a failed date, and takes her anger out on her male students with an essay assignment over the weekend, making them read The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway in its entirety. At Cartman's urging, they hire local Mexican laborers looking for work to read the book and write their essays for them. When they come back for their essays on Monday morning, they find out that the Mexicans misunderstood them, and instead of writing essays they wrote to their éses, a slang term in Chicano Spanish for friends. Meanwhile, Mrs. Garrison is working out at Curves when she meets a woman named Allison. Allison invites her to "Les Bos" (pronounced "le-bo"), a nearby bar, but Mrs. Garrison is shocked to find out that it's a lesbian bar. After being seduced by Allison, the two engage in scissoring. The next day, when the boys try to explain themselves to Mrs. Garrison about their essay, she happily gives them more time to work, announcing she has become a lesbian, which the class is highly supportive of.
Garrison returns to Les Bos and becomes sociable with all the women, but then is shocked to discover that the bar is being sold to Persians, who plan to make it into a Club Persh Dance Club. Soon after, the Persians send a representative to see the women at the bar. The representative tries to persuade the women there will be no real change, as the lesbians will still be welcome. Nevertheless, it will no longer be solely a lesbian bar, and will be decorated with stereotypically Persian decorations. Mrs. Garrison kicks the messenger in the testicles in retaliation. After the representative returns to the Persian's club, an army of sixty other Persians prepare to storm the bar, but they fail to defeat the women. The remaining Persians go to see their boss, Rauf Xerxes, who decides to handle the situation personally.
Mrs. Garrison decides that the lesbians need a spy inside Club Persh, in order to find illegal activity to use as blackmail, and hires the Mexicans to spy on the Persians. Later, Xerxes arrives, and attempts to reason with Mrs. Garrison, even offering her the job of running the club when he takes control. Mrs. Garrison declines, and tells Xerxes that she knows the Persian leader's secret, found out by the Mexicans — Xerxes is actually a woman. Xerxes is shocked that Mrs. Garrison knows her secret, and says that the other Persians cannot know, as women cannot be in charge in Persian culture. Mrs. Garrison agrees, and in a parallel of her own seduction by Allison, she seduces Xerxes and the two engage in scissoring. Xerxes decides to keep Les Bos a lesbian bar, and is seen at the bar herself. Mrs. Garrison then explains that the school has hired substitutes to take over her class for a while, who turn out to be the same Mexicans again. The boys then decide that the Mexicans are better teachers than Mrs. Garrison. During the math lesson, the Mexicans are explaining how to add fractions, when Kyle remarks, "I think I'm actually learning something".
IGN rated this episode 6.5 passable and said "There are some funny moments, as is almost always the case with any episode of this series. When Ms. Garrison first realizes she's a lesbian and tells the class "I'm gay!" Everyone is a little confused and Stan says "Again?" The joke about "writing essays" is a good laugh. Another moment is when "Janet" Garrison first figures out how two women make love and there's a smash cut to he and his new girlfriend "scissoring." It's a shock moment and makes you wonder how they get away with stuff like this. However, when they use the joke again at the end, it's now not nearly as funny. You can't shock the audience twice with the same joke - it just doesn't work that way."
The lesbians' fight against the Persians, with Mrs. Garrison kicking the messenger, Rauf Xerxes's physical appearance, and a plethora of slow-motion sequences, are references to the Zack Snyder film 300.
It is also a take on the closings of gay bars across the United States.
