Transcript

{Open on a shot of Strong Bad sitting near the window in the Smoky Office on Le Restige. He is reading a book that reads "Things I'm About To Say"}

STRONG BAD: Hi, folks. {he closes the book} I'm fantastic Strong Bad with an important seeming message. {he tosses the book offscreen} Five years ago, I drew a little dragon. It wasn't much to look at, but he captured the hearts and minds of dozens, nay, severals of internet viewers. I'm, of course, talking about none other than {cut to a sheet of notebook paper} The "S is for Sucks" dragon!!

STRONG BAD: {in rhythm} A long time ago
Before things got weird
Came a Dragon, a mighty dragon
that Everybody Feared
Now, G is for Giraffe
And H for Halloween
But, I'm not Joking about
This Kill-ill-Ling
Machi- Na-na-na-na
Na-na-na-na
{as if through a bullhorn} Na-na-na-na
Oh, pants will keep on Peein'
And we'll raise Quite a Ruckus
In case you haven't guessed by now
The S is for Suckus

The S is for Sucks
The S is for Sucks
The S is for Sucks
The S is for Sucks!

The S is for Sucks
The S is for Sucks
The S is for Sucks
The S is for Sucks!

{children voices join in at this part}

T! Two beefy arms!
U! Uneven style!
V! Constabulate V's!
W! What a pile!
Xcuse me Mr. Trogdor
You've run out of luck
In case you haven't heard the news
Zee S is for Sucks

Zee S is for Sucks
Zee S is for Sucks
Zee S is for Sucks
Oh, Zee S is for Sucks!

Zee S is for Sucks
Zee S is for Sucks
Zee S is for Sucks
Croissant! Zee S is for Sucks!

{Cut back to Smoky Office.}

STRONG BAD: Yeah, yeah, I know what you're thinkin'. "What about Trogdor?" You internet types ruined Trogdor! Just like you did zombies, pirates, ninjas, and Strong Bad! Er, wait, no. Yeah! And personally, I preferred that children's alphabet song to Trogdor's heavy metal song any day. {Trogdor's snout appears behind the blinds outside the window and Trogdor roars.} Waugh! Yes, sir! Sorry, sir! Right away, sir!

{The following song is accompanied with black and white pencil-drawn scenes of lightning, the S is for Sucks dragon, the dragon attacking a lighthouse, the word "sucks" and a terrified captain at a ship's steering wheel.}

STRONG BAD: {singing in speed metal style} The S is for Sucks, the S is for Sucks!
The S is for Sucks, the S is for Sucks!
The S is for Sucks, the S is for Sucks!
The S is for Sucks, the S is for Suuuuuucks!

{Cut to an illustration of the S is for Sucks dragon with the caption "HAPPY TROGDAY, S is for SUCKS DRAGON!!"}

Easter Eggs

  • At the end, click on The S Is For Sucks dragon's head to see a scene with Coach Z and his attempt at drawing a dragon (or "Wormdingler") in the locker room:
COACH Z: {looking fatigued} Hey there, Wormdingler, I got youse this cupcake {holds up a cupcake} for your famous fifth birthday. {drops his hand} You don't need no consummate V's to be my bride. Oh, did I just say that out loud? {he looks around repeatedly}

Fun Facts

Explanations

  • Strong Bad's comment about how the Internet ruined "zombies, pirates, ninjas and Strong Bad" refers to various Internet memes that have been popular over the years (including Homestar Runner itself).
  • "Constabulate" (apparently used in place of "consummate") refers to a constable, a British police officer rank, emphasized by the "S is for Sucks Dragon" wearing a British police helmet.

Trivia

Remarks

  • Strong Bad sings a song with na-nas as lyrics, which were listed as no. 2 on his bottom 10.
  • In the Easter Egg, Coach Z's arms appear to be animated differently than they have been in previous toons. They appear to be drawn as a whole, instead of two separate pieces that are manipulated. Bubs's arms saw a similar update in animation style in nightlife.
  • Between the opening scene and the last Strong Bad scene, the background behind the window changes from a light gray to a pale blue.
  • In many other toons, newspapers contain text that can be read if zoomed in on. In this case, Strong Bad's book contains only scribbles.
  • The title of Strong Bad's book is an example of a nondescript noun.

Goofs

  • When Strong Bad closes the book, he closes it on his thumb.
