{The scene changes and we see Strong Bad standing there. He hears a bird singing and he looks up and around.}

STRONG BAD: {voice over} Umm... so this is another part where it's just me. And I'm kinda standing around. You know, just standing. I guess I don't do very much. No wait, I just scratched my head. Yeah, I remember that part. I totally had to scratch my head then, man. I can't remember exactly what I was looking at there. Er, I think it was like a bird, or maybe a cloud that looked like a bird. You know, like a bird cloud.

{The scene changes back to Strong Bad sitting in front of the computer.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} I dunno. That wasn't so bad actually. You know it's like, all Strong Bad, all the time! But you know what they say, "Too much of a good thing is an awesome thing. But too much of an awesome thing is...umm...really, really dumb and bad." {stops typing} All right, so until next time send me a little email and I'll give you a little crap.

{The Paper comes down.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} So, this is where I just finished checking my email and I'm just kinda sitting there. You know, I...I think I was probably staring at my computer screen. You know, watching those green lines go by. I'd be like "Whoa, check at these green lines!" You know, they just keep going. {His eyes turns to green hypnotic circles and his head sways a little.} Those things could hypnotize you, man. If you watch them long enough. {His head drops to the keyboard.} Oh, see! There I go.
