Transcript

{Open on a game board sitting on a table in the basement of the Brothers Strong, with meeples of the twelve main characters standing on it. Soft music plays. Whenever a meeple speaks, he rattles back and forth.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Uh, you guys? How come we look like this? {close up} And how come I can only kinda... shimmy in place? Not that I'm complaining. Everybody knows Homestar Runner loves a good stand-in-place shimmy!

{Pan to the Strong Sad meeple in the bottom-right corner}

STRONG SAD: We're meeples! I've had so many dreams like this!

{Wide shot. The Cheat meeple turns to face Strong Bad as he speaks.}

STRONG BAD: {rhythmically} Gross. I hate you. Gross, gross, I hate you.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: What's a meeple? Sounds like Intendo.

{Close up on Strong Sad meeple}

STRONG SAD: A meeple is a wooden approximation of a human character in a tabletop game!

STRONG BAD: We look like we belong in one of those old British stop-motion shows. You know, where we all speak in board-gamery terms while a pleasant narrator over-explains everything?

{Pan over the board while music plays and the title "Meeple Grove Market" appears over top. During the narration, panning shots are shown of various meeples toddling around the board.}

PLEASANT NARRATOR: {voiceover} Welcome to Meeple Grove Market. Where the meeples all speak in board-gamery terms while I over-explain everything.

{Close up of Strong Bad meeple}

STRONG BAD: {fake Italian accent} Okay, as is the custom of-a my meeples, everybody sound off!

STRONG MAD: I TRADE FOR GRAIN!

BUBS: I just eradicated all disease in Jakarta!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I lost a turn in the chocolate swamp! Chocolate?! What happened to molasses? Kids love molasses!

COACH Z: I'm creepin' and I'm creepin' down Baltic Ave!

KING OF TOWN: I'm takin' back Irkutsk!

STRONG SAD: Pret-ty sneaky, sis!

{Wide shot, drum roll plays}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Do it Homsar, do it, do it, do it!

STRONG BAD: Do it Homsar, do it!

BUBS: Yeah, yeah! Do it!

COACH Z: Dort!

KING OF TOWN: Yeah, do it! Do it, do it!

COACH Z: DORT!

HOMSAR: Oh, no! {close up} You just shanked my Jengaship!

{Triumphant tune plays. Wide shot.}

STRONG BAD: Oh no, it's our mortal enemy: someone going to get a drink during the game!

{A silhouette of the Balding Man sighs his drawn-out sigh as he gets up from the table, jostling it and knocking over all the meeples. Everybody yells in alarm.}

{Slow zoom out as music plays.}

PLEASANT NARRATOR: And so, all the meeples fell down, because you see, when you're playing a tabletop game and you get up to go to the loo—

STRONG BAD: {still lying on his back} Yeah, we get it.

PLEASANT NARRATOR: —sometimes your knee strikes—

STRONG BAD: We get it!

PLEASANT NARRATOR: —the corner of the table—

STRONG BAD: WE GET IT!

PLEASANT NARRATOR: —upsetting everything on the—

STRONG BAD: WE GET IT, OLD MAN!
