{The toon begins with the main cast in a silhouette field. The text reads, "This is the whole cartoon this year".}

STRONG SAD: So... do you guys think that's true? This is really it?

STRONG BAD: Yeah, probably. I feel like we've been steadily working towards this over the years.

HOMESTAR: You mean we're not going to get into any Halloween hijinks or nothing?

COACH Z: I'm getting too old for hijinks. And the last time I attempted even medium jinks, I threw out my torn rubdominal scrimmage.

{Coach Z's front steps}

COACH Z: Deviled eggs, three pieces of two-ply? Ya call those Halloween jinx? Why I could whistle so hard right now I—

{loud whistle sound}

COACH Z: Whooogho!

{Lowjinxerol TV commercial}

COMMERCIAL ANNOUNCER: If you've suffered a torn rubdominal scrimmage, Halloween jinx don't need to be a thing of the past.

COACH Z: They don't?

COMMERCIAL ANNOUNCER: Lowjinxerol is specially formulated to treat creepy middle aged ailments. So you'll stop talking about them in public.

MARZIPAN: Hey, Coach Z? How's it going?

COACH Z: Well, this morning in the locker room, my rubdominous swell— {is cut off by the Lowjinxerol covering his face}

COMMERCIAL ANNOUNCER: Reclaim your Halloween low jinx with Lowjinxerol, {speaks faster} a division of Fluffy Puff/Foamalate/Hot Pooey/Smarty Juice/Videlectrix Subsidiaries.

{Channel 5 card}

CHANNEL 5 ANNOUNCER: We now return to Channel 5's Halloween progrumming.


NIGHT WATCHMAN COACH Z: Slow night at City Hall, eh fellow night watchman?

NIGHT WATCHMAN BUBS: That establishes our location and humdrum routine.

COUNCILMAN ZONEPERMIT (KING OF TOWN): And please, don't keep walking towards me. I beg of you! No, you're still walking towards me! Nooooooo...!


{the homestar runner Mysfit-steries card}

{Councilman Zonepermit's office}

TEENAGE HOMESTAR: Stand down, local law enforcement; a group of random teens is here.

NIGHT WATCHMAN COACH Z: Mysfit-steries, thank goodness it's you. I almost didn't recognize you in those absurd zigzagged pants.

TEENAGE HOMESTAR: Yeah, I— I know; I'm trying to branch out.

NIGHT WATCHMAN BUBS: When we rushed in here, the mysterious silhouette had vanished.

TEENAGE STRONG BAD: Oh, great. Another fanatical, mysterious believer.

TEENAGE MARZIPAN: Zigglies, why would anyone want to kill Councilman Zonepermit?

TEENAGE STRONG MAD: Look out behind you!





TEENAGE STRONG BAD: {in a Teen Girl Squad voice} SO UNSETTLING!

{Strong Bad freezes and falls to the floor}

TEENAGE HOMESTAR: Huh? Strong Bad stopped breathing! {beat} We have to play in a band!

{musical interlude 1}

TEENAGE HOMESTAR: {singing} And in the moonlight, things get kind of kooky; girl, you know they do, and your parents don't respect me as a man.

TEENAGE HOMESTAR: And in the moonlight, things get kind of crazy; they're trying to extricate me out of these absurd, zigzagged pants. Moonlight... kooky—


{pant dismemberment is complete and Large Bean is tied up}

TEENAGE HOMESTAR: Well, Strong Bad, it looks like your never-ending attempts to unshackle me from my ridiculous-èd pants have finally paid off.

TEENAGE STRONG MAD: Let's find out whose rich uncle he really is.





TEENAGE MARZIPAN: I thought it was going to be that creepy night watchman.

NIGHT WATCHMAN COACH Z: {Holding a bloody hammer} So did I, honestly.

NIGHT WATCHMAN BUBS: Why would you want to kill Councilman Zonepermit?

STAVE IT OFF GUY: Ha, ha, ha; I don't know. I guess he wouldn't give me no permits.

TEENAGE HOMESTAR: There's only one place for a criminal like you. {beat} Playing in our band!

TEENAGE STRONG BAD: Are we forgetting he totally just murdered somebody?

{musical interlude 2}

TEENAGE HOMESTAR: {singing} Moonlight... kooky... moonlight... kooky kooky...

STAVE IT OFF GUY: {in harmony background with Homestar} One... two... three...

{cut back to the silhouette field}

HOMESTAR: So... that whole deal we just watched. Was that like the list of side effects for Coach Z's Jinxy-rolls medicine?

STRONG SAD: Oh, what do you mean?

HOMESTAR: You know like, {in a prescription drug commercial tone} "side effects may include: zig-zaggèd pants, large bean, clichèd parodies, and playing in a band."

COACH Z: No way. The only side effects of lowjinx are all on...


{Strong Bad gets coughed out of his costume}

STRONG BAD: Here I come...

STRONG BAD: {falling} Bloooo...
