Transcript

STRONG BAD: {singing} Junk it, and check it, send me an email and I'll wreck it!

{Strong Bad reads "noone" phonetically as "new-nee". After "right", he comments, "Hey man, new-nee can find me wrong if she's good-looking enough." He then reads "Scarlet, MO" as "Scar, Let Moe".}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Well, as anyone that has a little brother or a Homestar Runner knows, hide n' seek can be oh so much more useful than just playing it.

{Cut to The Field, where Strong Bad is talking to The Cheat.}

STRONG BAD: ...prestigious monk, but I—

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {walking in from the right, interrupting} Hey Strong Bad, hey The Squeak. {both turn, and The Cheat scowls} I'm here to make all your dreams come true!

STRONG BAD: {annoyed} The Cheat and I are in the middle of a sentence here!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: What about fifteen cents? I'm here to make fifteen cents come true!

{Homestar Runner throws three coins on the ground next to Strong Bad.}

STRONG BAD: Hey Homestar, I've got an idea. Wanna play hide n' seek?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ooh, that's way better! I'll hide, and you seek! {runs off to the right}

STRONG BAD: Ugh. {turns back to The Cheat} Anyways, back to our sentence.

{Cut back to the Lappy.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Pretty effective, huh? Of course there are some unpleasant side effects from playing these pleasant games of Hide n' Seek. Er, more like just Hide n'.

{Cut to the bathroom, which is quite dark. Strong Bad walks in from the right, appearing tired.}

STRONG BAD: Sleepy... sleepy p—

{The lights come on, and Homestar Runner puts his head up from inside the bathtub; he has cinnamon on his face, and his shirt is torn, with the star hanging off.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {shouting} Ah, you found me!

STRONG BAD: {jumping in surprise and shouting} Aah! Homestar, what are you doing in here?!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Remember last spring when you asked if I wanted to play hide n' seek?

STRONG BAD: {confusedly scratching his head} But I've taken at least three baths since then...

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {appearing tired} Oh, I've been in here.

STRONG BAD: {jumping again} Aah!

{The scene fades out, with Strong Bad still in the air and Homestar Runner sinking into the bathtub.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} It works the other way, too.

{Cut to outside Homestar Runner's house, where Strong Bad and The Cheat are holding a rope next to a cage, beneath which are Fluffy Puff marshmallows and a glass of melonade.}

STRONG BAD: {strained, as the cage creaks} I don't understand! Where is he? He usually falls for this one by now.

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Oh, man! Stupid clever hide n' seek ploy. This thing's getting heavy! Switch to the Strong Sad bait.

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises, as he throws a powdered wig on top of the other items}

STRONG SAD: {offscreen} Oh, parliament!

{Cut back to the Lappy.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} There was a time when I used to try to play actual games of Hide n' Seek. But it ain't easy with all the brain geniuses around here.

{Cut to The Field, where Strong Mad appears to be attempting to hide by turning his back to The Stick. Strong Bad stands in front.}

STRONG BAD: Uh... Strong Mad? Buddy? That's the same spot you hide in every time we play.

{Strong Mad leans out from behind what is now revealed to be a cutout of himself.}

STRONG MAD: {disappointed} DAWWW!

STRONG BAD: Woah! Did you make a hiding spot out of you hiding in your usual hiding spot? To hide behind?

STRONG MAD: I STAYED UP ALL NIGHT!

STRONG BAD: And it was well worth your time.

{Cut to The Field at night, with a close-up of Strong Bad walking along, hands raised.}

STRONG BAD: {frustrated} All right, I give up! Olley olley oxen free!

{Cut to a wider shot, showing Marzipan with a sign with a picture of an ox, reading "OXEN FREE!"}

MARZIPAN: {annoyed} Yeah, Olley, set those oxen free. Oxen free! Oxen free!

STRONG BAD: {overlapping} Oh, put your sign away, we're just playing a game.

{Marizpan turns her sign around to show the other side, with the ox playing baseball and reading "PLAYING A GAME!". Strong Bad shakes his head.}

MARZIPAN: Playing a game! Playing a game!

{Cut to the computer room. Strong Bad is balancing motionless on one leg on a podium reading "STRONG BAD", with Coach Z standing to the left.}

COACH Z: Oh, check out this extremely attractive statue of Strong Bad!

STRONG BAD: {turning to Coach Z} No, stupid, you found me. I'm "it" now.

COACH Z: Oh, a back-sassin' animatronic Strong Bad!

STRONG BAD: Woah, great idea! Coach Z, I think your depressing creepiness may have finally paid off! {runs off to the right}

COACH Z: {raising his arms triumphantly} It's all been worth it!

{Cut to The Field, with a close-up of Homestar Runner walking in from the left.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, there you are. I found you definitely found you Strong Bad.

{Cut to a wider shot, showing that he is talking to a crude animatronic Strong Bad, with a balloon head and rods moving the limbs. It stands on a "SIXTEEN FOR YOU" soapbox with a speaker.}

ANIMATRONIC STRONG BAD: Shut your mouth, wimp-cake!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, don't sass back at me! {angrily} I found you fair and square.

ANIMATRONIC STRONG BAD: Sit on a biscuit!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {still talking to the animatronic, as Strong Bad walks past in the background} Look, Strong Bad, I've been playing this game of hide n' seek for six weeks, just to have you poor-sportsmanship all over the place now! Why, I've got half a mind!

{Cut back to the Lappy.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} I rest my case. Rest nothing. My case is in a coma! As for my awesome hiding place, these days I mainly use it to hide from Hide n' Seek. And Kick the Can, Capture the Flag, and don't forget the nebulous TV Tag. Yeah sorry. I'm taking this hiding place to the grave.

{Cut to The Bar, zooming out from a suit of armor. Pom Pom appears in the foreground, with an 'old one and Peanuts. Strong Bad's arm pops out of Pom Pom and steals the 'old one; Pom Pom shrugs.}

{New Paper comes down.}

{Pom Pom looks up at the New Paper.}

That's not muscle!
  • Several times during the toon, all of Strong Bad's arm except one outline disappears.
    • This happens while he is talking to The Cheat in The Field, in the bathroom while talking to Homestar, and twice while talking to Strong Mad at The Stick. In the first two instances, Strong Bad's right arm disappears. His left arm disappears in the last two.
  • During the bathroom scene, Strong Bad's entire right arm is gone when he walks in and only appears after the lights come on.
