Transcript

{The scene opens with Homestar Runner at Bubs' Concession Stand, finalizing a transaction.}

BUBS: ...and 16 cents is your change. {drops the change on the counter}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Whoa! Free money!

BUBS: So, what are you gettin' into tonight, Homestar?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I dunno. Marzipan and those are gonna try to summon the spirit of her dead ficus plant, but that sounds dumb and boring, so I'll probably just end up trick-or-treatin'.

BUBS: What about Strong Bad? What's he doin'?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I dunno. You can never tell with that guy.

{Strong Bad approaches the concession stand.}

STRONG BAD: Ok, Bubs. I'll have 90 rolls of toilet paper and 60 dozen eggs. {looks around} ...And a corn dog.

BUBS: I got it all packed up for you in the wagon round back.

STRONG BAD: Thanks, pally.

{Strong Bad and Bubs go around back.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: What is he up to?

MU-HU-HA-HA

MARZIPAN: Now Strong Sad, I need to make contact with Credenza. Homestar watered him with Yoo-Hoo while I was in Miami and he died and now I really miss him.

STRONG SAD: Ok. I'll need a photograph of the deceased and two box Oreos.

{cut to Strong Bad, Strong Mad, and The Cheat in their costumes with their supplies for the evening}

STRONG BAD: Oh, this is gonna be so great you guys. Everybody's houses and pumpkins and trees won't know what hit 'em. This is gonna be great!

THE KING OF TOWN: Hey, guys. What's up? What are we doing here? Making omelettes? Going to the bathroom? I'm cool with that.

STRONG BAD: Get out of here, old man! We're gonna be pelting people like you and houses like your castle with these eggs.

THE KING OF TOWN: C'mon! Let me hang out!

STRONG BAD: No way! Forget it! C'mon, loose dudes. Let's go hit Marzipan's gazebo {pronounced gayz-boh}.

{they all leave and the King of Town chases after them.}

THE KING OF TOWN: I'm dressed to Hamburgle... Robble! Robble!

{cut to Homestar, Pom Pom, Coach Z, and Bubs standing around in their costumes}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I bet I get...a million pounds of candy this year. A million pounds!

BUBS: Whatever. I'm goin' for quality over quantity.

COACH Z: Same here, Bubsy. I'm holdin' out for cookies with gold-plated chocolate chorps!

{Bubs sighs}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: We'll see about that. C'mon, Pom Pom. Let's go find some houses giving away lead candies!

{Cut to a view of the sky.}

STRONG BAD: Let 'er rip! {many rolls of toilet paper are thrown into the air. The Stick is covered.} Yes! All will tremble at the crack of our eggs and the hush of our 2-ply toilet papers.

THE KING OF TOWN: I know how to use toilet paper. Let me try.

STRONG BAD: Listen... ahem... Your Highness, we're about to egg the everloving crap out of your castle. It just won't be any fun if you're standing there!

THE KING OF TOWN: Yeah it will! On account o' I'm totally cool!

STRONG BAD: No, you're not. But we're prepared to give you a dozen of these eggs and let you wash it down with a roll of toilet paper in exchange for you leaving us alone for the rest of eternity.

THE KING OF TOWN: It's a deal! {The King runs off, taking his eggs and toilet paper with him.}

STRONG BAD: That's what I thought.

{cuts to a door opening to reveal Coach Z and Bubs}

BUBS: What the? Oh, I remember this house from a couple of years ago.

COACH Z: Trick or Trort!

BUBS: C'mon. man.

COACH Z: Ok. Trick or Treat.

{At this point you can choose what candy to give them by dragging it onto them.}

Swedish Fish

COACH Z: Oh, the Swordish Forsh!

BUBS: What did I just tell you?

COACH Z: Cut me some slack. It's a crowd-pleaser.

{door closes}

Delicious "Bag"

COACH Z: What is that? One of them old school candies? I got some old school for you'z. {rapping} This year Halloween falls on a weekend. Me and ghetto boys are trick-or treat-en'. Robbin' little kids for bags.

BUBS: Uh... he doesn't really mean we've been out robbin' little kids. {door begins to close} No, wait...{slam}

Zagnut

BUBS: Aw, Zagnut!

COACH Z: Yeah. Aw, Zagnut!

BUBS: No, no. Aw, Zagnut!

COACH Z: Right, right. Aw, Zagnut!

BOTH: Awwwww— {slam}

{you can also choose nothing by clicking on the pumpkin or any of the candy. If you do this, the door closes, and reopens with Stinkoman dressed as Speed Racer.}

STINKOMAN: Check out my new cosplay! {pronounced cohs-PLAY} I'm a demon on wheels!

Zagnut

STINKOMAN: I can't eat that kind of bar because I'm in training. Don't you have of the other kinds of bars? You know...energy bars...or power bars...or training bars?

Prawn

STINKOMAN: I love prawns. Simple as that! {dances}

Jar labeled "Akira"

STINKOMAN: Eh. Ew. Aah! Nnn! Eh! Ew! Ahhhhh! {Giant tentacles start coming out his body where his right arm should be.} That tickles.

{cuts to Pom Pom and Homestar walking along}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Wow, Pom Pom. Did you know that lady? Why did she give you a hundred bucks? Alls I got was a dang old Bit o' Honey.

{they stop at The Poopsmith, dressed up, who is sticking his shovel in and out of a pile of you-know-what}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Okay, Pom Pom. You knock this time. {Pom Pom does nothing} Fine. I'll ring the doorbell. Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding, ding! {He rocks his head back and forth as if he were banging it on a door, or as if his head were a bell} The Poopsmith! Trick or treat! {The Poopsmith offers some of his dung. Pom Pom bubbles something and leaves} Suit yourself. More for me. Lay it on me, Poop-Stick!

{cuts to Strong Sad in his seance}

STRONG SAD: Credenza! Credwenzia! Crewdenz—

MARZIPAN: It's been two hours and we haven't heard anything. Credenza must hate me.

STRONG SAD: No, no! Maybe I just need to do this some more. Credenzell!

{they hear a knocking sound}

MARZIPAN: What's that? That must be him.

STRONG SAD: Yup. That sounds like a ficus.

{it's Homestar Runner on the porch}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Let me in. Da, Da, Da. Let me in!

MARZIPAN: Hey, you're not a dead ficus plant!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: You're so smart. I'm Homestar Runn—

MARZIPAN: Get in here, you guys. You're gonna scare away Credenza.

{cuts to the King of Town polishing off his toilet paper}

THE KING OF TOWN: Doo! Not bad for a first course. I'm still hungry.

{cuts back to everyone at Marzipan's house}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I told you I'd get a million libs {pronounced LIBS} of candy.

BUBS: That sure doesn't smell like candy.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, you're right! Poopsmith? Did you give me some bum candy?

BUBS: {snickers} He sure did!

MARZIPAN: Any minute now. {electrical disturbances occur} Oooo!

STRONG SAD: Whoa! Electrical disturbances. There's definitely a powerful spirit present.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Do you mean, like, the spirit of giving?

{outside the King of Town is eating a string of candy corn lights} The King of Town: Oot oh. oot ooh.

MARZIPAN: You've got to be kidding me! Stop doing that right now.

{she goes back in}

The King of Town: Stop what? I don't do nothing!

MARZIPAN: Stupid, stupid King of Town. He gets on my nerv—{loud banging occurs} What the crap!?

STRONG SAD: I think this is it!

{outside, Strong Mad is punching the side of the house with a roll of TP over and over}

STRONG MAD: WAH! WAH! WAH! WAH!

STRONG BAD: Uhhh, that's not really the conventional way to roll a house, but, uh, whatever works!

STRONG MAD: {punches a hole in the house} HIGGINS!!

MARZIPAN: Oh. Hi, Strong Mad. {mumbles} Stupid. This is stupid. He ate the candy corn lights.

STRONG BAD: Whoa. What's going on in here? You guys having one of those stupid moron parties or something?

STRONG SAD: OK. Everybody say it with me this time.

BUBS: Yup. I've dealt with this before. Lights: definitely out.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: And somebody's a-grabbin' a-my butt.

Easter Eggs

  • When you can give Bubs and Coach Z candy, any mouse click that doesn't result in candy being given results in Stinkoman appearing, dressed as Speed Racer—see the transcript.

  • After the cartoon is over you can click on some people to make things happen. These people are:
    • The Poopsmith
    {The Poopsmith rockets off to the right, flaming. (This is M.Bison's Psycho Crusher move)}
    HOMESTAR RUNNER: Cool. Flaming Poopsmith.
    {The Poopsmith reappears from the left.}
    • Strong Bad
    HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, Strong Bad, I really like your El Debarge costume.
    STRONG BAD: I'm not El Debarge.
    BUBS: No, no, he's Miami Sound Machine.

Fun Facts

Explanations

  • When Homestar says "I told you I'd get a million libs of candy", he is trying to pronounce the abbreviation of pounds: "lbs".
  • Cosplay (as mentioned in Stinkoman's greeting) is a form of dress-up done usually at anime conventions, where people dress up as anime characters they enjoy.

Trivia

  • Bit o' Honey, Zagnut, and Swedish Fish are actual candies.
  • The sound the King of Town makes when he eats the candy corn lights is the same as when he eats the food flung at him in the game Revenge of the King.
  • There are a total of ten easter eggs in this cartoon, even more than the Strong Bad Email flashback.

Remarks

  • When Homestar says "someone is grabbing my butt," it is most likely Bubs, since he is right behind Homestar. Or his imagination.
  • This Halloween episode carries on the tradition in which a secret scene with Homsar is activated by interacting with the Poopsmith somehow.
    • In every other Halloween episode (except the first, for the obvious reason that Homsar didn't exist yet), activating Homsar causes him to appear with the rest of the group at the end. This episode is the exception—whether or not you activate Homsar or Stinkoman, they do not appear at the end.
  • This is one of the first times that Coach Z demonstrates his ability to speak without his trademark upper-midwestern accent.

Inside References

  • The Cheat's costume may refer to the first Homestar Runner book, which was written during the 1996 Olympics in Atlanta.
  • Strong Bad references the first Halloween toon when he says "I'm Carmen freakin Miranda!" and the second Halloween toon when he says "I'm Carmen freakin Sandiego!"
  • The Delicious "Bag" is a reference to Mr. Shmallow.
  • This toon marks the third time Witches' Brew, an inside joke of tremendous proportions, has been mentioned.
  • Van Buren's face is on the coins given to Homestar at the beginning, marking yet another relatively-famed inside joke.
  • Though now focused on the King of Town's castle, Strong Bad previously wanted to "egg the everloving crap" out of Marzipan's house in Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 7.
  • Bubs' line "I remember this house from a couple of years ago.", as well as the whole scene, is an obvious reference to The House that Gave Sucky Treats.
  • Strong Mad also had visible chest hairs in Marshmallow's Last Stand.
  • Stinkoman's dance makes the same sound as Pan Pan's eating/talking sound.

Real-World References

  • If you give Stinkoman the jar with "Akira" on it you will get a surprise from the Anime movie of the same name.
  • Marzipan says Homestar watered Credenza with Yoo-Hoo when she was in Miami.
  • Coach Z's mention of Strong Sad's beautiful house and beautiful wife is a reference to the Talking Heads' song "Once in a Lifetime".
  • Coach Z's old school rap is the beginning of the fourth verse of the Geto Boys' "Mind Playin Tricks On Me".
  • The line "I'm a demon on wheels!" from Stinkoman's intro is taken from the Speed Racer theme song.
  • In the scene where Strong Sad is chanting Credenza's name by himself with Marzipan in the room, his voice sounds like it's reversed. This is a reference to certain scenes in the Twin Peaks series, where scenes were filmed with the actors speaking their lines backwards, then played in reverse. The lines ended up being "reversed" twice, making them understandable, but sounding very creepy.
  • The flaming maneuver the Poopsmith does when you click on him is M. Bison's Psycho Crusher attack from Street Fighter.
  • When Strong Mad bashes a hole in the house he yells "Higgins!!" This is a reference to the show Magnum, P.I. Higgins was Tom Selleck's boss in that show.
  • The line Homestar says to Coach Z at the end of the toon, "I really like your Wesley Snakes outfit.", is likely a reference to Wesley Snipes, the actor who played the character Blade in all 3 Blade movies.
  • "Robble! Robble!" was the Hamburglar's catch phrase.
  • The photo of Marzipan's dead plant that appears in the introduction and during the seance resembles "Chuck the Plant" from various LucasArts Adventure Games.
