[edit] Transcript

{Open to a shot of an old TV. It turns on, revealing a screen from the Secret Collect TV show which reads "SECRET COLLECT. Will be back after these messages!"}

ANNOUNCER: —Secret Collect will return after these messages!

{The TV fades in to a shot of a fence, behind which Puppet Homestar and Puppet The Cheat are "throwing" a ball on a stick. Puppet Homestar is not moving. A Cheap As Free watermark appears in the bottom right.}

PUPPET HOMESTAR RUNNER: {mumbling} I'm standing still!

PUPPET THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

{Puppet Strong Bad walks on screen.}

PUPPET STRONG BAD: I wish I had a little friend to play with.

{A hand comes up holding the plush doll.}

ANNOUNCER: Now you do!

{Puppet Strong Bad looks towards the doll then towards the camera twice.}

PUPPET STRONG BAD: {gasp}

{Zoom into the TV as it cuts to Puppet Strong Bad and the plush doll riding the Wagon Fulla Pancakes. The "Talkin' Strong Bad" logo comes up from bottom right and grows, rising to the top right. On the second line, cut to another shot of the two in the wagon. On the third line, horizontal wipe to Puppet Strong Bad sitting on a couch holding the doll.}

PUPPET STRONG BAD: {voiceover; singing}
Talkin' Strong Bad
He's my budboy
A cute little version of me

STRONG BAD DOLL: {yellow speech lines appear from its mouth whenever it speaks} Holy crap!

{Cut to Puppet Strong Bad outside holding up the plush doll. Cut to a shot of Puppet Strong Bad's face as he spins around, then another shot of the doll in his hands as he spins. On the second line, cut to the two Strong Bads peeking out of a window. On the third line, cut to Puppet Strong Bad pushing the doll down the Stop Sign like a slide.}

PUPPET STRONG BAD: {voiceover; singing}
Talkin' Strong Bad
A real live plush toy
He says different things when you squeeze! Him.

{Cut to the plush doll sitting on a plain white background, as the camera rotates around it slowly. The "Talkin' Strong Bad" logo is in the top left corner. As the announcer speaks, a yellow burst reading "NEW!" appears in the top right, followed by blue text reading "Poseable!" below.}

ANNOUNCER: {exaggerated cutesy tone} Talkin' Strong Bad is a poseable plu—

{The logo and text drop off the screen.}

PUPPET STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Hey hey hey hey! Tone it down, man!

{As the announcer speaks, the logo and text reappear, along with blue text reading "15 Phrases!" on the left.}

ANNOUNCER: Er, sorry. Talkin' Strong Bad is a posable plush doll that says fifteen different phrases—

PUPPET STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Uh, let's say "upwards of fourteen phrases" instead. It sounds more impressive.

ANNOUNCER: Eh... 'kay. {the text drops off the screen and reappears as it is spoken} Poseable plush doll that says upwards of 14 phrases {the "15" is crossed out and replaced with "Upwards of 14"} when you press the blue diamond kinda thing on his forehead.

{Zoom in on the diamond. Cut to the plush doll next to a live-action Tandy 400, on which is the following:}

{From offscreen, Puppet Strong Bad presses the doll's diamond.}

STRONG BAD DOLL: DELETED!!

{The doll falls onto the keyboard, revealing the Floppy Disc Container and a disc labelled "trogdor financin'". A buzzer sounds as the offending email is...}

{Cut to Trogdor!! The Board Game, then zoom out to show Puppet Strong Bad and the plush doll sitting at the table. Puppet Strong Bad waves his arms wildly.}

STRONG BAD DOLL: TROGDOR!!

{Cut to Puppet Strong Bad and the plush doll on a roof. The doll is wearing Dangeresque sunglasses. A disclaimer appears in the bottom right corner reading "*cool, cool glasses not included".}
