Page Title: Lappy 486



STRONG BAD: {singing} Coach Z is not that cool; here comes an email.

{Strong Bad reads the name and address as "A person called Cooper, from the city Franklin, in the state of Tennessee."}

STRONG BAD: Told you I could do it.

THE CHEAT: {offscreen} {grudging The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Oh, I feel ya, Coopreme. It's a good thing they make you turn off your bazookas before movies man, or every one of my theater-going experiences would end in smoldering crater fashion.

{Cut to a cinema entrance lobby. Posters for Dangeresque 3 and King Bubsgonzola Supreme hang in the background. Senor Cardgage is an usher; Strong Bad, The Cheat, and Pom Pom walk in.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} The experience starts out promising enough...

SENOR CARDGAGE: Good efening, Bontilda. {takes Strong Bad's ticket and tears it} Forty-twone will be on your lest.

STRONG BAD: Just you watch, The Cheat. Some day I'm gonna be the one tearing tickets and telling folks that forty-twone will be on their lest.

{Cut inside the cinema. Coach Z is watching the movie screen, fidgeting and thinking hard.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} It begins with the genius who can't resist answering the oh-so-challenging film trivia slides they show before the movie.

COACH Z: Oh, I know this one! The Brat Pack! Pan-and-scan! Spencer Tracy!

STRONG BAD: Real impressive, Ebert. We've only seen this slide ten times since we all sat down.

ANNOUNCER: {voiceover} If you answered "B", you're ready for film school.

COACH Z: Awr, it was {hits himself} ice cold refreshment. I should've known.

{Cut to the screen, which reads:}


The correct answer was :
B: Ice Cold Refreshment


{Another slide is shown on the screen, with a picture of a bazooka, labeled "Please Be Considerate. Because no one wants to watch a smoldering crater."}

ANNOUNCER: Be considerate of others. Please turn off your bazookas before the progrum.

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Then, once the movie starts, don't forget the guy who insists on rattling off the complete filmographies of each of the actors.

{Cut back to the audience, and pan over to Strong Sad.}

MOVIE: {voiceover} —but when I returned, the DNA evidence was gone!

STRONG SAD: Ooh, and he had a cameo as Stevedore #2 in the pre-quel, and he was in that car commercial with the wisecracking transmission, and he has a Bacon number of 4!

STRONG BAD: {gets up and turns back to face Strong Sad} And this is my FIST! {raises said fist} You might remember it from Bloodied Pulp, the amazingly true story of your face in five seconds! {sits back down}

STRONG SAD: {pointing at Strong Bad} He was in Dangeresque 1 and 2.

{Cut to The Cheat, who is sitting next to Strong Bad and eating popcorn.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} And if you think the guy sitting next to you munching popcorn is bad, {Strong Bad's head turns slowly in The Cheat's direction} try going to a theater where people regularly sneak in their own all-you-can-eat fajitas!

{Cut to the King of Town, who is holding a frying pan covered in sizzling food, with a stack of similar pans in the seat beside him.}

THE KING OF TOWN: Wha?! This was all in my box of Milk Duds.

{Pan back, behind the King of Town, there are the Knight (with a guitar), the Hornblower (with a horn) and the Blacksmith (with maracas). The three of them play a brief Mariachi melody. Cut back to Strong Bad.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} And that brings me to the little girl behind me, who wouldn't shut up.

{Pan behind Strong Bad, Homestar Runner is standing there, wearing a viking helmet.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {singing} Ever and more! Ever and more! Ever and more!

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} This is the kind of person that likes to talk to the movie. But not in the usual {Homestar mouths Strong Bad's words} "Don't go in there!" or {Homestar mouths Strong Bad's words again} "Oh no he di'n't!" type of way. He just makes small talk with the characters, and chit-chat.

{Cut through white to some time in the movie. Homestar is sitting on his seat, with the viking helmet on the seat next to him.}

MOVIE: {voiceover} Well, I figured out their plan.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah, I figured I'd just cut up some iceberg lettuce, throw some tomatoes on there, maybe a little catalina. Nothing fancy, nothing fancy.

{Cut through white to later in the movie. Homestar is lying on his seat, with his head resting on the helmet.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh man, have you ever been to a ground-breaking? I mean, what is the point of those things?

{Cut through white again, Homestar is lying upside down on his seat, with his legs in the air.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: You know where the real money is? Phone books.

{Cut through white yet again, Homestar is sitting up normally.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I wonder how you spell "tabasco". Tabasco...

STRONG BAD: {Gets up from his seat again and turns around.} What is wrong with you people?! Do you not notice the giant movie over here? Were all the local sit-around-and-suck-out-loud places closed?!

{Strong Bad picks up a bazooka, holds it beside his head like a cell phone, and imitates a ringtone.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, di-a-lo-do, da-a-lo-do, di-a-lo-do, die!!

{Strong Bad lowers the bazooka to point at the camera and fires it. Fade back to the computer room.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} So, that's why I'm not allowed at the movies anymore. But I don't care. I brought my movie viewing into the digital age. And I dig-it-all!!! Check it out!

{Strong Bad runs "karatecar.exe". An ASCII art movie starts. A stick figure man walks along a street, with buildings in the background, and a car drives across. The stick figure jumps and does a somersault over the car just before he gets hit.}

STRONG BAD: {quietly} Oh, look out mister slashey-man!

{The movie cuts to a closeup of the car.}

STRONG BAD: {quietly} Ooh, something exciting!

{The movie cuts to a closeup of the stick figure man, who says "Now THAT was a sports car!". He then does some karate moves and says "Hi-YA!".}

STRONG BAD: {quietly} Aah, I guess I'm talking during the movie! Kind of a hypocrite! Gonna shut up now!

{The Paper comes down.}

Fun Facts


  • Pan and Scan refers to a technique by which film originally shot in widescreen format is transferred into a format compatible with the shape of common TV screens. In contrast, DVDs made using an anamorphic widescreen technique automatically fill high-definition television screens that have a 16:9 aspect ratio and make full use of the available resolution.
  • Catalina is a type of salad dressing made from tomato ketchup and sugar.
  • ASCII art is an artistic medium that makes pictures entirely out of typed characters.
  • A groundbreaking is a photo-op ceremony in which executives or other noteworthy people dig the first shovel of dirt from a lot in which a new construction will be built.
  • The slashes on the bazooka in the "Be Considerate" ad are a common mark on guns, tanks, and war ships to show how many kills they've made.
  • The refreshment trivia about popcorn pricing refers to the common practice of cinemas overpricing their food.
  • "Please turn off your..." usually refers to electronic devices such as cell phones and pagers.


  • The release date on the Dangeresque 3 poster is:
    COMING JUNE 2004
    APRIL 2005
    AUGUST 2006
    WE'LL SEE...
  • Dangeresque's Cool Shades in the poster have three lenses, relating to it being the third film. The number "3" is also visible, reflected in the center lens.


  • Despite the lack of a specific release date and that it just says "We'll see", the poster for Dangeresque 3 is still labeled "Now Playing".
