==Transcript==
 
-
''{The scene opens on the Lappy 486, with Strong Bad nowhere to be seen. The wind howls. After a few seconds, Female Lappy 486 appears on screen with the second note of the Lappy start-up noise.}''
 
-
 
-
'''FEMALE LAPPY 486:''' ''{the words appear on the screen as she says them}''  Oh.  Golly-gosh.  Strong Bad is understairs.  Tell whim I love.
 
-
 
-
''{Quick drop to the Basement. Strong Bad is lying on the couch; Strong Sad is standing behind it.}''
 
-
 
-
'''STRONG SAD:'''  You get your shiny, round butt up in there and check that email!
 
-
 
-
'''STRONG BAD:'''  No!  Now, get out of my couch... -area!
 
-
 
-
'''STRONG SAD:'''  But it's your sesquicentenn-email!
 
-
 
-
'''STRONG BAD:'''  I don't wanna turn a hundred and fifty!  It's too much pressure!  Strong Mad ate it!
 
-
 
-
'''STRONG SAD:'''  It's okay, I can help!  Check out these storyboards I drew up!
 
-
 
-
''{Strong Bad strains his neck to view the storyboard.  Cut to a storyboard showing Strong Bad's boxing gloves on the Lappy 486's keyboard. Slow piano music starts. Above, it says "Scene 1" and "Int. Lappy-Day"; below, "Close on tip-tapping boxing gloves".}''
 
-
 
-
'''STRONG SAD:'''  We begin with a claustrophobic close-up of typing with boxing gloves on.
 
-
 
-
''{Cut to a storyboard showing Strong Bad sitting at his desk in the middle of the desert. Above, it says "Scene 1a" and "Ext. Desert-Day"; below, "zoom out to reveal wide shot of desk in desert".}''
 
-
 
-
'''STRONG SAD:'''  A quick zoom out reveals you're really in the middle of a barren desert landscape, symbolizing the vast scope of your achievement.
 
-
 
-
''{Cut to a storyboard showing Coach Z holding a pear covered with eyeballs and with coffee dripping out of his hat and down his face. Above, it says, "Scene 2" and "Int. Creepytown-Night"; below, "dolly in on cz. holds up eyeball-pear".}''
 
-
 
-
'''STRONG SAD:'''  Next, we dolly in on Coach Z holding a pear covered with eyeballs while black coffee continually streams down his mouthless face.
 
-
 
-
''{Piano music stops. Cut to a close up of Strong Sad.}''
 
-
 
-
'''STRONG SAD:'''  This part doesn't represent anything.  I just... always wanted to pour coffee on Coach Z.
 
-
 
-
''{Cut to a storyboard showing Strong Bad at his desk in the Computer Room, with the [[No Loafing Sign]] partially obscured. Homestar Runner is wearing a mask, and the star on his shirt is now cloud-shaped. Piano music starts again. Above, it says, "Scene 3" and "Int. Computer Room-Day"; below, "2 shot of SB and Desire Man".}''
 
-
 
-
'''STRONG SAD:'''  Cut to a two-shot of you hashing it out with your innermost desires.
 
-
 
-
''{Cut to a storyboard showing a donut with a bite taken out of it. It is leaking jelly, in which Strong Bad's face appears. Above, it says, "Scene 4" and "Int. Donut Place-Night"; below, "ECU of jellyfish reflector. tear. fade out."}''
 
-
 
-
'''STRONG SAD:'''  And we end on an extreme close-up of your reflection in the gooey filling of a jelly donut as you shed a single tear.
 
-
 
-
''{Cut back to Strong Sad.}''
 
-
 
-
'''STRONG SAD:'''  It's equal parts Lynchian, Fellinian and Steve Buscemian, don't you think?
 
-
 
-
''{Cut back to the wide-shot of the couch.  Strong Bad is now lying face-down.}''
 
-
 
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' ''{incomprehensible mumbles}''  Pilotwings... ''{more incomprehensible mumbles}''
 
-
 
-
'''STRONG SAD:''' Oh, never mind. I'll go see what Strong Mad thinks of my Doug the Dino treatment. ''{walks offscreen}''
 
-
 
-
'''STRONG MAD:''' ''{offscreen}''  DON'T BOTHER!
 
-
 
-
''{A storyboard suddenly appears with a punching sound, showing Strong Bad yelling. Above, it says "Scene 12" and "Int. Day-Up in your grill"; below, "Med. close on SB. 'Leemee alone. I do it next week!'"}''
