Page Title: Bewaouw! Take Caouw! Bewauw!



{Open in the field. Homestar and Pom Pom are standing in front of an inflatable pumpkin.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh man Pom Pom, this Halloween is gonna be the Christmas ball! Hot tricks, cool treats, good friends, and MURDER!

POM POM: bubbles

HOMESTAR RUNNER: What? Murder? Nah, that doesn't sound like something I would say. I was probably talking about the crazy cool air, the falling leaves, definitely not MURDER!

POM POM: bubbles

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Nah man, you're hearing things, I was just talking about MURDER. And like this time of years there's sometimes a little bit of MURDER, and maybe a little bit of MURDER. I would never say anything about- WAH! Murder! Pom Pom! What happened? Did you get popped? Say a few bubbles! You can't be dead! You're my only friend and concubine! Oh I should really look up what that word means!

STRONG BAD: Woah, what manner of stitch witchery have I stumbled upon this Hallows-eve?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh Strong Bad, I think my evil jealous side secretly killed Pom Pom without even telling my dopey lovable side!

STRONG BAD: Okay, Homestar. Unckie Strong Bad is gonna help you get through this. Now, tell me exactly what happened.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Well, it all started 117 days ago...

{A sign pops up that say four hours later. Cut back to The Field at night, with Strong Bad and Homestar in costume.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: ...and I turned back around, and there was a puddle of Pom Pom at my feet!

STRONG BAD: And no one else saw anything?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: No one! Well, there was that inflatable pumpkin, but I'm pretty sure he said he had a previous engagement. Man, I like that pumpkin. I should really get his phone number.

STRONG BAD: Well, it definitely sounds like you killed Pom Pom. First thing you need to do is dispose of the body. Here, go to Bubs' and get everything on this laminated murder cover-up check list. Plus a twelver of Cold Ones and a dozen Maple Bismarck's. For the cover up. Than meet me back at my basement.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Thanks Strong Bad, you're a real cartoon pall!

STRONG BAD: Oh, this is gonna be a real good night. cut to Bubs' Concession Stand

BUBS: Heh heh, I'd like to see those teenagers try to egg the concession stand this year, now that I own an ostrich farm!

COACH Z: Boy I'll say! And these piña coladas are top notch!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh hey there, say there Bubs!

BUBS: Happy Halloween, Homestar!

COACH Z: Yeah! And I'm standing here!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Just the essentials tonight, just the essentials. A 50 gallon drum of bleach...

BUBS: Check.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: ...and a 50 gallon drum of saw blades...

BUBS: Sounds good.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: ...and a 50 gallon drum of body bags.

BUBS: Reasonable.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Boy Homestar, you've got this. These guys don't expect a thing! Just order these last few everyday items and we're in the clear! Um... I need a... twelve-pack of cold ones, and um... a dozen maple bismarcks I DON'T KNOW WHAT BISMARCKS ARE I KILLED POM POM.

BUBS: Simmer down Homestar, we've all made quote unquote mistakes.

COACH Z: Yeah, who hasn't slipped up and engaged in a little, quote unquote, pre-meditated murder in cold blood. Am I right?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: So what do I do now?

BUBS: You need to establish an alibi!

COACH Z: Yeah, with witnesses! And if you's can swing it, wetnesses!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Okay, I can do that, I can do that, I can do that, I can do that-

BUBS: Homestar!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yep, sorry, got it, pweow!

BUBS: Good kid, that Homestar... should we light him up?

COACH Z: Absalortly!

{Cut to the castle. The Poopsmith and the King Of Town are standing out front.}

KING OF TOWN: Gah, I keep telling you Poopsmith, I didn't do it, stop acting like my dad!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {talking into a "burner" phone"} What? Yeah, I've been here all the live-long day. At the KOT's castle, or as I like to call it, alibi city. Who? Pom Pom? Never heard of him! Sounds like someone who is still alive, though. Okay corroborating witness, bye! Click!


HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh! Hey Can Of Town, Tootsmith, you guys hear that legitimate conversation I was just having? So legitimate.

KING OF TOWN: So you've been here at the castle all day?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yep! Right here! Innocent as charged!

KING OF TOWN: Ah-ha! I told you I didn't eat your pile of whatsit! It was him!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh crap... literal crap...

{The Poopsmith raises his claw-hand menacingly.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ah! Objection! Leading the witness! {runs off}

{Cut to The Basement. Strong Bad, Strong Mad, The Cheat, and Pom Pom are sitting around.}

STRONG BAD: ...and he totally thinks the inflatable pumpkin is you, Pom Pom!

POM POM: bubbles

STRONG BAD: He also tried to get its phone number, which is more than a little weird.

HOMESTAR: Unkie Strong Bad, I need more help!

STRONG BAD: Pom Pom, quick, hide!

POM POM: bubbles

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Things have gone downhill, not only did I murder Pom Pom, it's also on record that I ate fifteen hundred pounds of crap.

STRONG MAD: laughs

THE CHEAT: laughs

STRONG BAD: (laughing) Oh ho, stifle a laugh. Well, you know what you gotta do now, don't you?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I will literally do whatever comes out of that sweet rectangular mouth next.

STRONG BAD: Uh, in that case, you gotta get me... sixteen dozen maple bismarcks.


STRONG BAD: These are collaches, I said bismarks!

STRONG BAD: {eating} Now that's more like it! Now you gotta find a patsy and pin that murder on him like a corsage on a puffy-dressed prom date!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: You mean like with a lot of blood and them going, "Ow, ow, Homestar, ow, quit it, I'm not going to prom with you anymore! And I hate Bennigan's!"

STRONG BAD: Yeah, something like that. Now go stash Pom Pom's body at their house!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: But who I'm supposed to pin this murder on?

STRONG BAD: The most unsuspecting saps you can find...

{Cut to Marzipan's house. Strong Sad is sitting on the couch}

STRONG SAD: {hisses}

{Marzipan walks in.}

MARZIPAN: Hey Strong Sad, there's a bad horror movie on. Wanna make snappy comments and obscure references while we watch it?

STRONG SAD: You know I can't see, I just drew these eyes on my hands.

MARZIPAN: Why don't you just take your hands down?

STRONG SAD:: Uh, because I might have super glued my eyes shut...


STRONG SAD: For authenticity! I was trying to be a cosplay-don-air!

MARZIPAN: That's a word you just made up!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {entering} Ah-ha! I knew you two were up to something!

STRONG SAD: Ahh, cosplay-dang!

MARZIPAN: Okay, I admit it! My homeade cabucha is just apple cider vinegar with Strong Sad's... phlugus floating in it.

STRONG SAD: My secret shame slash finest hour!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Don't play games with me, you blew up Pom Pom! You stuffed his body right here under the couch all day probably, this murdered him.

MARZIPAN: This again?

STRONG SAD: I hear a yonder ruckus!

{Cut to the field, The King Of Town, The Poopsmith, Bubs, and Coach Z come in.}

KING OF TOWN: Gah, what's all this noise? It's so lame!

COACH Z: What's the what's the scenario?

{Pom Pom appears behind a bush.}

STRONG SAD: Look! A specter rises!

{Strong Mad and The Cheat throw Pom Pom into the air}

STRONG BAD: Oh no, Homestar! It's Pom Pom's ghost come back to haunt you! Don't you want to, you know, pee your pants, or do something else embarrassing while all these people are here?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: No way Unkie- {runs into the point of Strong Bad's costume} Ow! Sharp... No way Unkie Strong Bad, you guys have shown me the light! It's time to fight murder with {breaks off the point of Strong Bad's costume} murder!

STRONG BAD: No, wait!

{Homestar jumps up and throws the point at Pom Pom, who explodes.}

STRONG BAD: Homestar, that wasn't a ghost! That was actually him! You just... you... you...

ALL: You killed Pom Pom!


{The "I Killed Pom Pom" title card comes up again, which changes into card reading Next Season}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {narrating over the title card.} Next season on Homestar Runner dot com...

{Cut to the field, Homestar, dressed in his normal attire, is standing next to the inflatable pumpkin.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Dang inflatable pumpkin, you're a way better best friend than floaty old Pom Pom ever was.

{The ghost of Pom Pom deflates the pumpkin and brandishes the point from Strong Bad's costume.}
