{A leaf appears with the words "The 4Tst Annual Fall Float Parade".}

ANNOUNCER: We now return to the firty-tirst annual fall float parade.

{Cut to Coach Z and Marzipan wearing scarves and ear muffs. Marzipan is holding a mug of hot chocolate with marshmallows, and is clearly mad at Coach Z.}

COACH Z: Ok then, welcome back. First please allow me to apologize to my co-host, here, for any innapprapriate comments I may have made while we was at commercial.

MARZIPAN: {nearly under her breath} That's two strikes Coach Z.

COACH Z: Yes, yes, what fun!

MARZIPAN: {suddenly no longer angry} So, next up is good old Bubs.

COACH Z: Yes, good old my favorite type of guy who I'm just all the time hangin' around and doin' stuff with, Bubs!

{Cut to Bubs on a giant float with the words "Coach Z, you jerk" written on it. There is a banner hanging on the float that reads, "Happy Thanksgiving!"}

BUBS: {Through a megaphone} Coach Z, you jerk!

MARZIPAN: {surprised} Oh.

BUBS: Coach Z, you jerk!

COACH Z: Oh, I see then...

BUBS: Coach Z —

COACH Z: That's very —

BUBS: {with more emphasis than before} — you jerk!

COACH Z: — overt.

{Cut to a close-up of a giant balloon in the likeness of Pom Pom.}

COACH Z: Oh, now here's somethin' that doesn't appear to be makin' fun of me, it's the Pam Pam b'lloon!

MARZIPAN: That's "Pom Pom balloon" for those of you who don't speak Coach Z. Always a hit with the ladies, that Pom Pom.

{Cut to a wide-shot with the Pom Pom balloon still visible. Two identical Homsars are coming in behind the balloon wearing shriners hats and driving miniature red cars.}

MARZIPAN: And never a hit with anyone, it's Homsar! Oh, and there's another Homsar.

HOMSARS: {both of them in usison} Let's sing a song of tinfoil!

{A new float enters the frame behind the two Homsars. This float has a big pile of sweatshirts in the center, a giant shooting star on the front, and a bee suspended by a giant spring on the back. "SWE ATSHIRTS" is printed on the base of the float. Homestar Runner is buried in the pile of sweatshirts with only his head visible.}

COACH Z: Oh, now this is just adorable, Homestar Runner's sweatshirt float.

MARZIPAN: {point out the noticable space in the text on the sign} It looks more like a "swee-atshirt" float to me.

COACH Z: You say tomater. I say tomatermorts.

{Cut to a close-up of Homestar buried in the pile of sweatshirts.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Marzipan, help! I woke up in this pile of swee-atshirts and I don't know how to stop it! I'm supposed to be watching Bubs concession stand while he's in some ridiculous parade, {looking down} and I'm pretty sure a rat just bit my knee.

MARZIPAN: Oh, that's great sweetie. Say hi to that bee for me.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {annoyed} Hi, bee.

{Cut back to the wide shot. Strong Mad walks into the frame carrying Bubs' Concession Stand, which has clearly been ripped out of the ground recently, as there are bits of sod still hanging from the bottom.}

COACH Z: Well, it looks like Bubs has come to his senses and entered a proper float in the parade. 'Atta boy, Bubs!

MARZIPAN: I'm pretty sure that's just Strong Mad absconding with Bubs' Consession Stand.

COACH Z: Oh, serves him right then.

{Cut back to Coach Z and Marzipan.}

COACH Z: Oh, and here comes one of my favorites the KOTHS Junior Varsity Marching Band!

{Cut back to the parade. The band enters, comprised of The King of Town waving The Poopsmith's shovel like a drum major's mace, The Poopsmith playing cymbals, The Hornblower blowing his horn, and the Knight playing a bass drum. The band comes to a halt. Cut to a close up of The King of Town.}

THE KING OF TOWN: Break it down for me, fellas!

{Cut to a wide shot of the band again. They face the camera and resume playing.}

COACH Z: Oh, yeah! I'm feeling this! {begins rapping} One two, one two, keep it ___ ! Listen to me cause Coach Z's, he's got it goin' on!

{Cut to a close-up of Coach Z as he continues rapping.}

COACH Z: I'm a pretty nice guy with fairly good teeth! C'mon, watch me —

MARZIPAN: No more free-styling. It's really annoying.

{Cut back to the parade route. A new float enters. Strong Bad is on the float standing between two Snowmen and beating them with nunchucks. The base of the float, which appears to be a matress, reads: "Celebrating 04 Glorious Seconds of Nunchucking Snowmen." The "04" is a digital sign that counts up as the scene continues.}

COACH Z: Ah, and here's Strong Bad's annual not-even-remotely-fall-related float.

MARZIPAN: Is it just me, or does one of those snowmen look suspiciously like Strong Sad?

COACH Z: Nah, Strong Sad's yellow.

STRONG SAD: {Spits out a carrot} Ptooey! Strong Bad, I thought you said our float was going to be celebrating our nation's covered bridges.

STRONG BAD: No, I said our float was going to be sticking-you-in-a-fake-snowman-and-beating-you-senseless-with-nunchucks... covered bridges.

STRONG SAD: Well, how on earth did I misunderstand all that?

STRONG BAD: I don't know man. You hear the words "covered bridges" and you just go into a trance.

STRONG SAD: Oh, covered bridges. {Strong Sad goes into a trance, but snaps out of it when Strong Bad resumes beating him with nunchucks.}

MARZIPAN: And, as always, bringing up the rear: it's the Marshie balloon!

COACH Z: Man, that thing has got to frighten some children!

MARZIPAN: Is anyone guiding that balloon?

{The Cheat can be seen hanging from one of the balloon ropes, clearly not in control of the balloon.}

MARZIPAN: Run for your lives!

{The Marshie balloon collides with the wooden platform where Coach Z and Marzipan are standing.}

COACH Z: Argh! I regret everything!
