'''STRONG BAD:''' Oh, yeah! Me and The Cheat, we're acidtripcionados. And one thing I've found, is that every good trip needs good music that only the people that ''went'' on a trip will get. ''{clears screen}'' And your friends that ''didn't'' go on the road trip will want to ''{haltingly}'' kill you ''{normally}'' every time you bring it up.

'''STRONG BAD:''' Oh, yeah! Me and The Cheat, we're roadtripcionados. And one thing I've found, is that every good road trip needs a good inside joke that only the people that ''went'' on the road trip will get. ''{clears screen}'' And your friends that ''didn't'' go on the road trip will want to ''{haltingly}'' kill your legs ''{normally}'' every time you bring it up. These days, I make up the inside joke before I go on the road trip, just in case one doesn't happen. For this road trip, we'll make it... jumbo/LARGE. Get it? jumbo/LARGE? It's like a maxymoron.

==Easter Eggs==
+
-
[[Image:Honkem.png|thumb|"Honk 'em if ya got 'em!!"]]
+
-
*Click on the eighty-something cases of Bull Honkey to see a close up of a [[Bull Honkey]] can.
+
-
*Click on the car bumper when Homestar finds Strong Bad and The Cheat to see a bumper sticker.
+
-
*At the end, click on "everybody" to see a conversation between Bubs and Coach Z.
+
-
:'''COACH Z:''' Whaddya mean, I'm the green Bubs? If anything, you're the orange Coach Z!
+
-
:'''BUBS:''' The first person to call me the orange Coach Z is gonna get a free consultation with my friends Jacoby and Meyers! ''{balls up his left fist, followed by his right}''
+

+
-
==Fun Facts==
+
-
 
+
-
===Explanations===
+
-
*Petrifries is a reference to [[Wikipedia:Petrification|petrification]], which is the process by which organic material is converted into stone or a similar substance.
+
-
*[[Wikipedia:Forward compatibility|Forward compatible]] products try to cater to future technology, such as new input devices.
+
-
*Maxymoron is a play on the word [[Wikipedia:oxymoron|oxymoron]], although jumbo/LARGE is not actually an oxymoron; it behaves like a [[Wikipedia:pleonasm|pleonasm]], or the opposite of an oxymoron.<!-- PLEASE do not include the "jumbo shrimp" bit. That is a possibility, but not the only possible, source of this. Please post in Talk if you have more to say on this BEFORE you edit this. -->
+
-
*The "honk 'em if you got 'em" bumper sticker is quite possibly a jab at the military expression "smoke 'em if you got 'em", a term soldiers use for being allowed to smoke cigarettes when standing at rest in formation.
+
-
 
+
-
===Trivia===
+
-
*There appear to be 204 cans of Bull Honkey.
+
-
**If there really were "eighty-something" cases of Bull Honkey, then there would be from 2.29 to 2.55 cans per "case".
+
-
*This email has four [[portmanteaus]]; the most featured in any toon on the site besides [[Teen Girl Squad Issue 8]], which also has four portmanteaus.
+
-
*This is the first time Bubs is seen clenching his "fists".
+
-
 
+
-
===Remarks===
+
-
*Homestar is able to open the Gremlin's door, even though the car door has no visible handles.
+
-
*Strong Bad claimed in the email [[car]] that he did not own a car. The Gremlin is presumably the car he won from Bubs in the email [[pop-up]]. Interestingly, The Cheat won the key to the Gremlin; however, it isn't present in this email.
+
-
*With the exception of one knee, Strong Bad is able to fit his entire body under the seat of the Gremlin, even though it would appear that his head is far too big to fit.
+
-
*When The Cheat slams the CD into the 8-track player, it is not shaded.
+
-
 
+
-
===Goofs===
+
-
[[Image:Meltshake roadtrip goof.png|thumb|And now for my next trick!]]
+
-
*The passenger seat's shadow doesn't move while Strong Bad is rummaging under the cushion.
+
-
*The Melt Shake doesn't appear in the first few frames of animation as Strong Bad is bringing it out from under the cushion, although his hand is visible. This makes it seem as though it appears out of thin air.
+
-
*When the silhouette of the car is shown, there are no cases of Bull Honkey next to it.
+
-
*Strong Bad's door of the Gremlin does not even have a handle on the outside.
+
-
 
+
-
===Inside References===
+
-
*"Bull honkey" was previously mentioned in [[record book]], in which Strong Bad set the record for "Longest Bull Honkey".
+
-
*Homestar Runner looking for people in the night with a flashlight and acting like a cop is a reference to [[Strong Bad is in Jail Cartoon]], where Homestar appeared to be part of the "police force" of Free Country, USA.
+
-
*The Jammin' Tunes song is by the same band that makes the song that The Dancing Brothers dance to in [[A Folky Tale]], as revealed in a DVD commentary.
+
-
 
+
-
===Real-World References===
+
-
*The Bull Honkey caffeinergy sauce is a parody of the [[Wikipedia:Red Bull|Red Bull]] energy drink.
+
-
*[http://www.jacobyandmeyers.com/ Jacoby and Meyers] is the name of a California tort law firm famous for its television advertising.

('''Commentary by:''' [[Mike Chapman]], [[Matt Chapman]], [[Karen Wagner]])
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Ohh – ha, ha. I remember that road trip we went on, guys.
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' Oh, yeah, we went on a lot of road trips.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' One time I made a joke on that road trip, and we might still make that joke today.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Ah, road trips.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah.
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' So, okay.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah-uhh.
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' Yeah...  The noisy machine. ''{laughs}'' Okay, there's an inside joke right there.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' I haven't been on an actual legit road trip in a while... Sad!
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' You went on a road trip with the Homestar puppet from Houston to Austin...
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' That's true.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' ...one time.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Two or three hours ''{Matt laughs}'' doesn't really constitute a road trip.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' But we even stopped along roadside attractions.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' That's, that's right.
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' That empty field.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' That what?
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' That empty field where Homestar ate all the muffins.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT & MIKE:''' That's right.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' All right, let's talk about something we're watching.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Okay.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' So, something... ''{laughs}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Well, we're talking about something that's relevant to what we're watching.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' All right, we can keep talking about...
+
-
 
+
-
''{short pause}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' Okay, here comes Bull Honkey. All right. 
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' ''{referring to the sheet covering the Bull Honkeys}'' That's really gross.
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' ''{overlapping}'' I think you guys, um, drink a lot of that, don't you?
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' We&mdash; we used to...
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{overlapping}'' Not as much anymore. We used to rely on&mdash; that's why emails aren't up always on Monday mornings like they used to be. ''{Karen laughs}'' We used to just drink a bunch of Bull Honkey until they were done and then I'd just go to bed and finish up by morning.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah... Babies and... 
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Babies and things. Babies and those darn wives. ''{Matt laughs}'' Ever since we got those darn wives.
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' Hey, I'm calling Jackie and Melissa.
+
-
 
+
-
''{Matt laughs}'' 
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Strong Bad did not think this road trip through very well, you guys.
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' Nope, not at all.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' What happened? Oh, the door's broken and..
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:'''  Yeah. And they're stuck in it.
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' ''{overlapping}'' No keys.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' No wh-? Oh. ''{laughs}'' Green Bubs. 
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' ''{laughs}'' Coach Z does not like being referred to as Green Bubs.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Coach Z has had a decline unlike any other character of the website over the last few years. Like Strong Sad's gotten better, like he's a much&mdash; and even the King of Town...
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Originally the hated characters... the original ones have gotten a little better...
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' Strong Sad, yeah.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' But Coach Z has definitely gone from being kind of a...
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' ''{interrupting}'' Strong Sad's been holding his own.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Yeah. Coach Z just gets more depressing... ''{laughs}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' Oh, melt shake! Melt shake. That is...  makes an appearance ''in'' the store, actually.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' That's right. It's part of the combo.
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' Yup. In our combo value menu.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' The melt shake makes an appearance in my car frequently. ''{laughter}''  In&mdash; a melt cup of coffee as the thing that's the most frequent.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah, more than a melt shake.
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' Caffeine&mdash;
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' So I... I imagine this...
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' ''{interrupting}'' Caffeine cuts through the Styrofoam.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' I imagine that this song is by the same recording artist that does the, uh, what's the one from Saddy Dumpington called?  Um.. What's that song called?
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Uhhh...
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' The Dancing Brothers dance tune.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Yeah. I don't remember what it's called! But I think that the band that must have the word "power" in their name; they're called like "The Power Surge", or something.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' ''{laughs}'' That's a good one. What is this? Like, we can't&mdash; we know our own cartoons so... We don't know. At all.   
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' All right, you keep talking&mdash;
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' Thank you! Thank you, Wiki. Thank you, Homestar Wiki, for helping Mike and Matt to remember their own cartoons.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Mike, you made those...
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Look at those fireflies! 
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah. You made those like&mdash;
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' I made those like, five years ago.
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' These guys are so lazy, they're pulling stuff out of the hat that they used five years ago.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' No, we didn't use them. That's the thing.
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' Ohh.
+
-
 
+
-
''{short pause}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' So, here's another instance of Homestar kind of being the police&mdash; the local police. ''{Mike laughs}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' Always clicking the flashlight on and off.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Well, without any arms, he's gotta have to be expressive somehow, so that flashlight and the clicking is like...
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' ''{interrupting}'' ...gives it a sense of expressiveness
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Expressiveness.

+
-
'''KAREN:''' Oh, I forgot to mention that for a long time after this email came out, there was another phrase that made its way, uh, into my daily life was&mdash;
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{overlapping}'' What?
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' ''{sing-song}'' That, my friend, is jumbo/LARGE!
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' That's a pretty good one. That's kind of like Strong Bad said, sort of like, ''{as Homestar}'' And you smell like pea soup!
+
-
 
+
-
''{Mike and Karen laugh}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' Oh yeah! It's the same tune.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah.
+
-
 
+
-
''{short pause}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''KAREN:''' So, we're just, uh, watching it.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Talk, talk! j-LARGE! I can say j-LARGE, right? Talk!
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Talk.

=== Commentary Transcript 2===
+
-
'''Commentary by:''' [[Mike Chapman]], [[Matt Chapman]], [[Very, Very Little Girl]]
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' We're doing this&mdash; a bonus style commentary. Bonus bonus commentary. Because we found this list of proposed titles for Strong Bad and The Cheat's road trip.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' What was the one they decided on?
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Uh, they&mdash; I don't even think they give it a name really.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Okay, yeah, 'cause initially that was one of the big things in this email is they give it a name.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Right.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' You gotta have a name for your road trip.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' And so, um, well, let's go down 'em, Mike.  We'll alternate, how 'bout that?
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Okay.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' You&mdash; you start.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Well one of them was "Bro's on the Roa' Apostrophe Nine Whatev".
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' "Bro's on the Roa' for the Nine Whatev".
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{overlapping}'' "...for the Nine whatev".
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Uh, this is one Mike contributed... that is one of my favorites. "Gettin' and The Lengthy Boy" is the name of their road trip.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Uh... I guess Strong Bad is Gettin'?
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Okay.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' And maybe The Cheat is the The Lengthy Boy?
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' It's kind of like they're making a Burt Reynolds movie out of their road trip.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{overlapping}'' Exactly. Uh, then there's "Putting the Bro back in Bro-oad Trip".
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Okay.  And just plain&mdash;
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' But it's just spelled "Broad Trip".
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah.  And then there's just straight up "Bro-oad Trip" by itself.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' And then there's "Quite Wild for the Nine Seven".
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' They like to not have it be the year that it is&mdash;
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Yeah.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' &mdash;when they name things with the... ninety-something.  Ninety-something, I think, is&mdash; the '90s are good for that.  Adding, like, a&mdash; a year to the end of anything.  The ninety&mdash; ninety-whatev&mdash; like, ''ninety-whatev''.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' It doesn't work for 2004.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah, or even the '80s.  Like, eighty&mdash; '86 something.  '86... just doesn't have the punch that&mdash; the '90s were good for naming things with years in them, apparently.  Uh, so next one: "Oops, I Rocked Your Mind, Friend, World Tour".
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Uh... "Gettin' Spicy on the Road".
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Uh, this one's pretty good: "Oh, Excuse Me, Can I Borrow a Cup of ''Road Trip Ninety-Whatever''".
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' And then the last one was "Honk 'Em If You Got 'Em".
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' All right.  And then, uh, there's a little drawing of&mdash; of, uh... sort-of-Homsar, and his body as a shoe, and looks like a bad drawing of Mike is inside that shoe.  Um...
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Yeah, I couldn't tell who the drawing was.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah. ''{pause}'' Is one&mdash; Is there an Easter egg in here that's the bumper sticker?  Oh, yeah, it's the&mdash; somethin' about soccer.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Yeah.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Is that what it is?
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Somethin'&mdash; Real men&mdash; Some&mdash; Some riff on the "Real Men Play Soccer"&mdash;
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' &mdash;bumper sticker, maybe.  I'm not sure.  ''{pause}''  Oh, are we about to hear the Jumbo Large song?
+
-
 
+
-
''{Very, Very Little Girl begins cooing off and on for the remainder of the commentary}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah, it's a pretty good song.  We probably mentioned this before, but I always feel like this is by the same guys that wrote the "Gonna Have a Good Time Tonight" song.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Yeah.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' We&mdash; We should definitely make some more songs by them.  The High-Pitched Voice Singers.  Falsettos.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' I&mdash; At one point they were the somethings... The Power Surge or something.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Oh, you had a name for them?
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' I think I&mdash; No, I just&mdash; In another commentary, I think I may have said that they were called The Power Surge.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' ''{laughs, then begins singing along with the Jumbo Large song}'' B'deedle deedle derdle. ... Buhhhhh.  ''{pause}'' We have a guest here in the commentary booth.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' You may have heard her squeaking and squawking.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' She liked that song.  She was dancin' to it.  It's Very Little Girl.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{singing}'' Very, Very Little Girl.  ''{pause}''  This is another instance of Homestar being the police.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' There's three or four... instances&mdash;
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' I think we talked about that on the other commentary for this.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Oh.  All right, let's talk about something else.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' Uh... Bro's on the Roa?  Is this one we did with Karen... I think.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Might have been.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' ''{overlapping Mike}'' Might have been a Karen one.
+
-
 
+
-
''{Mike laughs as Strong Bad types "Officer Cheese-for-butt"}
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' You like that?
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' I forgot about Officer Cheese-for-a-butt.
+
-
 
+
-
''{pause}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' I remember it was a big deal when my friend, Jamie, and I got to go on our first road trip... to Chattanooga.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Nice.  What'd you do?
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' We just went&mdash; Stayed in&mdash; At&mdash; We&mdash; At the Snake River Zoo, we stayed at that Holiday Inn and that's where that&mdash; that giraffe thing&mdash; that plastic giraffe came from.
+
-
 
+
-
'''MIKE:''' Is that also when you guys went to the ''{unintelligible}'', uh, burial mounds and took your pants off and ran around?
+
-
 
+
-
'''MATT:''' ''{laughs}'' Shhh.
+
-
 
+

''{Very, Very Little Girl continues cooing until the email ends}''

Transcript

STRONG BAD: {singing} Good morning, Mr. E-vil {cut to Mermaidman yelling, "EEEEEVIIILLL!" from SpongeBob}, there's a call for you, on line eight. {brings up the email}

STRONG BAD: Oh, yeah! Me and The Cheat, we're acidtripcionados. And one thing I've found, is that every good trip needs good music that only the people that went on a trip will get. {clears screen} And your friends that didn't go on the road trip will want to {haltingly} kill you {normally} every time you bring it up.

{Cut to the Field. Strong Bad and The Cheat are standing in front of the Gremlin. The sky is all cosmic, the bushes have the TV "sign-off" color, and the ground is purple, Patrick's head floats past on the ground yelling, "YEAH, I LOVE BEING PURPLE!", adn Pokey from Mother 2: Earthbound is hiding under the Gremlin}

STRONG BAD: All right, you ready to go, The Cheat? Why is Pokey hiding under that Gremlin?

{Pan to the right so that the entire object covered by the sheet is visible}

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises. Pulls back the cloth to reveal many stacked cans of Red Bull. Excited The Cheat noises.}

STRONG BAD: Whoa! Eighty cases of Red Bull! {close-up of Strong Bad} That's my favorite SAS! {back to wider view} Oh, this trip is definitely going to be {dances; his voice his robotic-like and the entire scene has an emboss effect} LARGE. It's going to be hilarious.

{Cut to the inside of the Gremlin. The Cheat is sitting behind the wheel. Strong Bad enters the passenger's seat and shuts the car door.}

STRONG BAD: Rack city, here we come!

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

{The Cheat puts in an 8-Track tape in the cassette player. The song "Rack City" by Tyga plays.}

{The music stops after 10 seconds}

STRONG BAD: Oh. Right. {under his breath} That was pretty poor planning on my part.

{Cut to a distant view of a silhouette of the Gremlin against a yellow sky with the angry sun from Super Mario Bros. 3 as "Desert Heat" from Golden Sun plays accompanied with the entire scene with a smooth, warbled effect indicating that it is hot outside}

{cut back to inside the car}

THE CHEAT: {dismissive The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: All right, forget it. I'm not gonna let a little setback like this ruin our trip. What we need is some weed.

{Strong Bad and The Cheat grab blunts and smoke}

{Cut to a view of the passenger's seat from above. Strong Bad's leg is visible on the right}

STRONG BAD: {speaking in a Vocoder voice effect along with bright colors and a fish-eye effect in the scene} All right, we got a small order of fries {brings out a pack of fries from McDonalds}, a large melt shake {brings out a Butterfinger milk shake from Steak n Shake}, ooh, and for dessert, a half-sucked booterscotch {brings out a butterscotch candy that is still in the wrapper}.

{return to front view of the Gremlin with Strong Bad and The Cheat with red eyes and huge pupils}

STRONG BAD: All right, cool. Now alls we need to wash the taste out is some cracky tunes!

THE CHEAT: {exclamatory The Cheat noises. Brings out a CD that says "cokehead mix".}

STRONG BAD: A mix CD! {singing in a Vocoder effect} That, my friend, is jumbo/LARGE. {normal voice} Now, let's put it in and crank it up!

THE CHEAT: {tries to put the CD in the eight-track player. The Cheat noises.}

STRONG BAD: Naw, just force it in there. {return to front view of the Gremlin} I'm sure that thing's forwards compatible.

{The Cheat pushes CD into player. The edges of the CD break off.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, yeah, The Cheat. These are some jammin' tunes!

{The song "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" by Elton John plays}

THE CHEAT: {sad The Cheat noises}

{The sky darkens, the bushes are on fire and the moon from LoZ: Ocarina of Time appears in the sky}

{cut to view of Strong Bad and the Cheat in the Gremlin, this time from an angle and they are very stoned; the song fades out}

STRONG BAD: Like, look at that little stain over there! {cut to a view looking up at the car roof with flashing colors} That could be a whole 'nother world. With a whole 'nother Strong Bad and The Cheat stuck in a Gremlin. {a light shines on The Cheat and Strong Bad.}

{cut to a view looking out the window; Homestar Runner is standing outside holding a flashlight}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {looking annoyed} All right, pole smokers. Move it along! What do you think this is, Make-out Point?

{cut to view of the Gremlin from outside}

STRONG BAD: Homestar, it's me and The Cheat! We're stoned in here!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Unlikely story, Backseat Bradley!

STRONG BAD: Just open the door; I'll explain everything!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: All right, but before I do, {no longer looking annoyed} I'm looking for my jumbo/LARGE melt shake! I think I left it in there a week or month ago. {cut back to view of Homestar Runner through the car window} Either of you guys find it? {opens the door}

{cut back to view of the Gremlin from outside}

STRONG BAD: {exits the Gremlin and faceplants on the ground; the scene then changes into bright colors and surreal images flashing rapidly with celestial music playing; the scene fades to black}

{cut back to the Lappy}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Luckily, Officer Cheese {The Cheese from Wacky Delly pops up}-for-ass let us off with just a warning. And that was our trip. Until next time everybody, remember to stay LARGE.
