Page Title: Hot Action? Big Numbers?



{Open to Strong Sad's room. Strong Sad is standing next to a chair and in front of a table with a notebook on it, and wearing his Deletehead hat. An archway to a hall is to his left}

STRONG SAD: {rhythmic clapping in background} Everybody's just gonna feel sorry for ya. I mean {starts to pat belly in time with clapping} I do.

{clapping stops}

STRONG SAD: Please be seatèd, Deleteheads. {chair scoot noises as Strong Sad sits} Now let's get right down to it! {pounds table with fist on the word "right", then raises finger} Sbemail 200 wagers, place ya bets! Place ya bets! {continues to pound table as he speaks}

{Cut to the other side of the table. Strong Mad and The Cheat are sitting down, and the Cinder Block is on the table. All three are wearing Deletehead hats}

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG SAD: {points at The Cheat} The Cheat's got fifty bucks says the Lappy doesn't make it out of email 200 alive! {thumps table, then raises arms} Any takers? Any takers?

{Cut back to opposite side}


STRONG SAD: {speaking rapidly} Okay, hot money, hot money, big movers! {pounds table, cut to close up} Dan! We got a twenty percent chance this email's gonna be from a guy named Dan! Who wants in? {looks around quickly as he speaks, cut to opposite side} Anybody? Nobody? Hot action? Big numbers? No? {cut back to Strong Sad} Moving on! Homestar's got half a G on... {raises notebook and looks at it} Strong Bad not making it out alive?

{Cut to Homestar, frowning and holding a bundle of red candles with a drawing of a clock face taped to them, resembling a homemade bomb. He briefly looks surprised, quickly hides his "bomb" under the table and glares at Strong Sad.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I dunno nuttin' about nuttin'!

{Cut to Strong Bad standing in the doorway, holding a crate labelled Last week's clams with a box labelled Cat noses on top of it.}

STRONG BAD: Do any of you have even one iota that lives down the street from a clue as to what you're talking about?

{Cut to Strong Sad.}

STRONG SAD: Uh, gambling?

{Cut to the opposite side of the table.}

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}


{Cut back to Strong Bad.}

STRONG BAD: Well, I can tell you right now you're all way off! {starts to walk away} Or I got fifty bucks that says you guys will continue to suck no matter what I do.

{Cut to Homestar Runner, frowning. Ominous music starts playing, as Homestar pulls his homemade "bomb" out from under the table.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: We'll just see about that, old buddy, old pal. We'll just see.

{Zoom in on Homestar, who raises the "bomb" up to his face. The edges of the screen darken. Cut to Strong Sad. The music stops abruptly.}

STRONG SAD: {points} Homestar, are those just candles with a drawing of a clock taped to them?

{Cut back to Homestar. The edges of the screen lighten.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, um. Sorry guys, I gotta catch this invisible secret elevator. {Homestar slowly lowers himself below the table, stopping before his hat disappears} Boooooo.

{Cut back to Strong Sad.}

STRONG SAD: How much you wanna bet he stays down there all week?

{The New Paper comes down, reading Place your bets, people!}

Fun Facts


  • "G" is slang for $1,000 (a grand), making half a G $500.
  • "Double down" is a term in Blackjack meaning to double one's bet at any point after the initial cards have been dealt, and take exactly one more card.


  • Strong Sad's notebook reads:
    • Meeting
  1. Pledge
  2. Wagers
  3. Fruit Dip
  4. Eyebrow Notions
  • This is the first occurrence of the New Paper appearing outside a sbemail, though it should be noted that this toon was closely related to email thunder.


  • Although Strong Sad states the odds of the next emailer being named Dan are 20%, only 10 of the previous emails - roughly 5% - were sent by a Dan (or a variant thereof).
