Marzipan's Greeting

MARZIPAN: Hi this is Marzipan. I'm off volunteering in the Coches Mountains, teaching the heathens how to bend pipe cleaners. I'll be back in—

{Strong Sad's arm appears and he presses the "record" button.}

STRONG SAD: Sorry, Marzy.

{Cut to full view of Strong Sad in front of the table.}

STRONG SAD: Time to exercise one of my favorite perks of house-sitting!

{Strong Sad presses the button again. Cut to shot of the answering machine.}

Strong Sad's Greeting 1

STRONG SAD: {rolls R} Grrrreetings weary telephone traveler. I sense you have come in search of Marzipan, but you have stumbled upon so much more. 'Tis I, Strong Sad, house-sitter extraordinaire. Please organize your thoughts for Marzipan in order of least depressing to most depressing. As for crank calls, allow me to give you a theme: furtive glances.

{Strong Sad presses the button again. Cut to full view of Strong Sad in front of the table.}

STRONG SAD: {puts hand on head} Ugh, too verbose. Come on, Sads, {smacks belly} quick and to the point! In and out! Hook 'em and cook 'em!

Strong Sad's Greeting 2

STRONG SAD: {rapping} Marzipan be gone! Strong Sad be here, so drop your purpose in mine ear! I'll pass it on before too long—

{Strong Sad presses the button again. Cut to full view of Strong Sad in front of the table.}

STRONG SAD: Let's pretend that never happened.

{Strong Sad presses the button again. Cut to shot of the answering machine.}

Strong Sad's Greeting 3

STRONG SAD: Hello, this is Strong Sad, temporary steward of Marzipan's domicile. Please leave your jumbled message at the tone, so I can articulately reword it in journal form for Marzipan to read upon her safe return.

{Strong Sad presses the button again. Cut to full view of Strong Sad in front of the table.}

STRONG SAD: Good enough for guv'ent work I say.

{Cut to a black screen with red lettering reading "SOON..."}

Message 6

STRONG BAD: Wait, what? Hold on, I wasn't prepared for this. Just gimme a sec. {Writing noises and paper turning in background} Okay, I'm ready. Yes, this is... Strooong Baaad calling for... Strooong Saaad... uh, I'm gonna knee you in the face... for breakfast? Hold on, let me reconfigure and call back.

Message 5

STRONG BAD: Hey, Elephants-gerald. I left some of my stuff over at Marzipan's the last time she always had me over there for dinner all the time. So when you come home, could you be sure to grab my Marzipan's TV, my Marzipan's guitar and amp, and oh yeah, my Marzipan's cash and her jewelery. {A silhouette of Strong Bad carrying a large object walks across the screen} If you do, the chance of dead things in your bed drops into the 42 percent range!

(Zoom out to reveal Strong Bad carrying a large guitar amp with jewels hanging on the corner. Strong Sad is standing next to the answering machine.}

STRONG BAD: Yeah, you can ignore that one.

{He walks off the screen. Cut back to answering machine.}

Message 4

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Dang, Marzipan, you sounding fine. You sound finer than the fine you get when you return a movie late to the movie store!

{Zoom out to reveal Homestar standing next to Strong Sad and the answering machine. Strong Sad has a disgusted look on his face. Homestar is actually speaking as opposed to the sound being a recorded message.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: You're even sounding finer than a three dollar fine for new releases! Maybe I should swing by for a lit—

STRONG SAD: {Hands on hips} That is quite enough!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {surprised} Oh! Marzipan! {Dejected} You look, um, great... Is that a new... skin you're wearing?

STRONG SAD: {angrily} It's Strong Sad!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: It is! It is strong sad and strong unfortunate what happened to your face! {Gets right up in Strong Sad's face} Ooh! Preow!

{He runs off-screen, then runs back on, and gets back in Strong Sad's face}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Call me! Preow!

{He runs off-screen again}

Message 3

COACH Z: What a crock! This is not what I plunked 9 bucks in quarters into a broken pay phone to hear! Strong Sad, remind me to kick your shins unmercifully next time I see ya! And also, ya think the five hundred feet from Marzipan's house thing still counts if she's not in it? Cause I cop some sweet goose flesh when I hit that four hundred 'n ninety-seven foot range. Whoa, creeped myself out there. Gonna hang up!

Message 2

THE KING OF TOWN: {Munching} What? Sorry, I didn't hear your outgoing message. I was choking down a chocolate dipped tapeworm. Anyways, agent Panzimar, about the plot against S. Sad, things are moving along just as planned. Hit a snag with step 2, though: the camel died and was decidedly undelicious. Will move forward with barrel of hot sauce approach. Provided that makes it past dinner time, look for my signal in the northwest sky. Ting of Kown, out!

Message 1

MARZIPAN: Stong Sad! What did you do to my outgoing message? Those things are like my adopted foreign babies! Anyway, I forgot to tell you that a guy named Slick Somebody called from a place called—

{Cut to wide shot of the room. Strong Sad is gone. There are foot imprints are in the carpet where he stood.}

MARZIPAN: —Marzipan's Stupid Face plumbing, and said he replaced my toilet's Roman candle valve? Whatever that is. So maybe don't flush the toilet until-

{From offscreen, Strong Sad flushes the toilet and several explosions go off. Several flashes are seen and toilet water splashes onto the floor.}

STRONG SAD: {weakly} Ohhh...

{Cut back to the answering machine.}

You sound all fat, depressing, and Allan Poe. And you're gonna be real po' if you don't pay that late fee! Heh heh heh. Shop at Bubs'!
