Strong Bad's part-time job

Strong Bad Email #121

Strong Bad proves he does more than just write e-mails, by showing everyone his part-time job!

Cast (In order of appearance): Strong Bad, Homestar Runner, The Cheat, Bubs, Coach Z, Pom Pom, Mrs. Bennedetto

Date: January 3rd, 2005



{As usual, Strong Bad is in front of his Lappy, checking his e-mail. Judging from the view of the room we can see around the Lappy, he does not seem to be in his basement, as usual.}

STRONG BAD: A lot of ladies and a lot of girls... some healthy ladies and some healthy girls!

subject: besides..
Dear Strongbad,
Do you do anything besides checking e-mails?
Sincerely, Hunter

STRONG BAD: {typing} Waudju- gighi- ikuh... What do you mean do I do anything besides checking e-mails. 'Course I freakin' do! I do everything! Always! {clears the screen} Nature walks, Meet N' Greets, Bus Chucker Club, The League of Me and The Cheat Ice Cream Socials. Shut up! I even have a part-part-part-part-very part-time job, to which I am currently 15 minutes late.

{Cut to the lower area of Marzipan's kitchen. Strong Bad has apparently been checking this e-mail under Marzipan's kitchen table. Homestar walks in, and is holding a tennis ball.}

{Strong Bad looks around in a panicked way.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: This is perfect! Just perfect! I couldn't be happier with my new invention! I'll call it... the Super Question Machine!

STRONG BAD: {whispering} I gotta try to sneak out of here without Homestar noticing me.

{Homestar sets his "invention" down on the table.}


STRONG BAD: I gotta think of some kind of diversion...

{The Cheat walks in, humming to himself, wearing a top hat entitled "Tito" and a bowtie, and holding a cane. Homestar turns around to look at him. The camera pans left. The Cheat begins doing a dance.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, wow! What a great new invention!

{Strong Bad crawls out from under the table, and gives The Cheat the thumbs up.}

STRONG BAD: Nice work, The Cheat!

{He proceeds to crawl away, while The Cheat's still humming.}

{Cut to Bubs' empty concession stand.}

STRONG BAD: {quietly while peeking out from the corner} This is perfect! Bubs must be passed out on the floor again.

{Strong Bad disappears behind the screen, and begins walking toward the Stand.}

STRONG BAD: {singing} Comin' in to work on time..

{Bubs pops up from under the counter. Strong Bad lets out a short yell.}

BUBS: Aha!

STRONG BAD: {Yells, then stutters a little.}

BUBS: Late again, Strong Bad. I'm not running a country club, you know.

STRONG BAD: {Quickly} But Mr. Bubs, I was just-

BUBS: {Interrupts} Wastin' time on that email show of yours again. That mess'll never get you anywhere!

STRONG BAD: Yes it will! You'll see! I'm gonna be big one day. I'm gonna be a famous email checker.

BUBS: And I'm gonna be two times two. Now put on your uniform and get to work!

STRONG BAD: You're gonna be what?

{The screen fades out and resumes to Strong Bad in a hot dog costume, which has been combined with a clown's in front of Bubs' stand. Strong Bad is holding a paper, and a stack of papers sits next to him.}

The papers all say:


STRONG BAD: That's right! Come on down to Bubs' and get you a free cup of ice with purchase of deluxe cup of ice for equal or lesser value.

BUBS: No, no. Work it, son, work it!

{Strong Bad begins dancing and humming.}

BUBS: That's it, that's it! Look out for Number 1!

{Coach Z walks in.}

COACH Z: Hey, it's the hot dog clown! What fun!

{Pom Pom's silhouette merges in.}

COACH Z: Pom Pom, take a picture of me with the hot dog clown. It'll be classic!

{Pom Pom bubbles, and takes out a camera. A huge flash is seen, and a camera shutter sound is heard. Coach Z falls over, leaning on Strong Bad.}

{The camera zooms in to Bubs.}

BUBS: Pictures with the hot dog clown ain't free! Fifty bucks! Sixty bucks! Get back here and let me confiscate your film. {The camera zooms back out to the four of them.}

COACH Z: {running} Charge, Pom Pom! {He and Pom Pom run off screen.}

STRONG BAD: It's a great day at Bubs' Concession Stand! Sign up now for giving us money.

BUBS: Now isn't this better than sitting at your desk answerin' emails?

STRONG BAD: Actually I was sitting under a kitchen table this week and.. uh oh! The Lappy's probably almost out of juice! I need to get back and end this email! Uhh.. say Bubs, I'm gonna need now off. Is that cool?

BUBS: Is Strong Sad cool?

STRONG BAD: Oh come on.

BUBS: You know all my policies! I'm not running a country club, you know.

STRONG BAD: Okay then I quit.

BUBS: Fine! But don't even think about swiping that costume!

STRONG BAD: You made me buy this costume, remember?

BUBS: Oh. Right. Well then pleasure doing business with you.

{Strong Bad runs off in the costume.}

{We cut back to the kitchen, where The Cheat has fallen over, still humming, and Homestar is standing over him. Strong Bad crawls back in.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: This is the most amazing undersea epic ever filmed.

STRONG BAD: {typing} See, Hunter? I got all types of stuff going on. I've got so many facets, you don't even know what facets are. I'm like a hundredaire socialite out on the sce-

{The Lappy powers down.}

STRONG BAD: Oh great. The battery ran out. I gotta figure out a way to end this email.


{Cut to Mrs. Bennedetto. Strong Bad slaps a paper on it with some text and a picture of him on it.}

yeah buddy,
i have muscles!

ps: preeeeow

{The Paper DOES NOT come down on its own!}

BUBS AS MR. LEGARM: Well look who decided to show up. Fifth time this week, Johnny.

STRONG BAD AS JOHNNY: Oh I'm sorry Mr. Legarm. Honest I am! I just-

MR. LEGARM: {interrupting} You just what? Lost track of time?
