Cast (in order of appearance): Strong Bad, The Cheat, Strong Mad, Moses Mallone

Places: Computer Room, Strong Bad's Basement, The Field

Computer: Lappy 486

Date: October 24, 2005

Running Time:



STRONG BAD: {singing} I'm still here, after all these years, checkin' my email. {high pitched} Checkin' my email! {brings up the email}

{Strong Bad pronounces "latley" as written and "Keller, TX" as "Killer taxes."}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Justin Wagley, huh? Well, this just in, Wagley: I'm not your freakin' babysitter! Or your Dad. Or your dadbysitter. {clears screen} But I am The Cheat's dadbysitter and he's been having some serious problems falling asleep latley {pronounced as before} too, ever since he watched that shock-you-mentary about gingivitis.

{Cut to The Cheat, Strong Bad's basement, with the lights off. The TV is playing, and The Cheat looks scared.}

MAN ON TELEVISION: In the final stages, the gums took on the appearance and taste of chocolate pudding.

{The Cheat screams and turns pale. Cut back to the Lappy.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} We've had to cook up such an elaborate go-to-sleep scheme for The Cheat that I believe it's officially reached rigamarole status. Anyways, it all begins by making sure The Cheat has his security, um, item. A groadalated old sponge {Cut to an image of a green sponge with a badly-drawn face, covered in bandages.} covered in Band-Aids which he affectionately refers to as "The Denzel." {The words "The Denzel" appear in quotes at the bottom of the screen. Cut back to the Lappy; Strong Bad continues to type.} Next, we have to prepare The Cheat's favorite bedtime snack. A tall glass of a little concoction he calls SUUDSU. {Cut to a blue screen with "oh my SUDDSU" written in the background. A cup of milk appears with a chime.} Skim milk, {a pile of gummi bears appears} gummi bears, {The gummi bears are placed in the milk and a circle reading "Pure Genius!" appears.} pure genius!

{Cut to The King of Town's grill, without the lid. The Cheat is lying on it, carrying The Denzel and holding a glass of Suudsu.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} So, once he's cuddled up with The Denzel and his glass of Suudsu, {Strong Bad walks up} it's time to begin the bedtime story proper.
