[edit] Transcript

{Close-up of a water cooler. The title words, "Biz Cas Fri" appear. Air bubbles rise into the cooler. Cut to Puppet The Cheat and Puppet Strong Bad standing in front of his computer. Strong Bad is wearing his customary Friday shirt, and The Cheat has on a tie. Smoke is coming out of the computer.}

THE CHEAT: {interrogative The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: I didn't do anything! I just turned it on, tried to check my email, and then it started smokin' and shakin' like it was Friday night!

THE CHEAT: {more interrogative The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Back up my files?! Are you kidding? Is that a real thing you have to do? I always thought that that was just like... you know, a figure of speech.

THE CHEAT: {irate, incredulous The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: I dunno, like "Wake up and smell the coffee," or "See ya later, alligator!"

THE CHEAT: {makes angry The Cheat noises and leaves}

STRONG BAD: Oh, great! So my computer's dead. This almost never happens to me!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {enters room} What's up, my homay? Ew, what's that smell? Did Mancuso at Accounting put his three-hole punch in the microwave again? That guy sucks!

STRONG BAD: Oh, get outta here, man!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: No, not yet. So, did you get that email that I forwarded to everyone in the company and their families and their high school friends?

STRONG BAD: No! Can't you see my computer and I are having domestic problems?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, man, you should check it out right now. It has a 3-gig hilarious file attachment attached to it. It's one of the funniest emails I've forwarded this week!

STRONG BAD: 3-gig attachment?! Oh, no wonder!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: When you get that mess fixed, check out that attachment. The file's called {filename appears on the screen as Homestar says it} "catonfire_fallingfromanairplane.exe". I'm not gonna tell you what it is, but trust me you got to check it out! I was ROTF all over the place when I saw that. Anyways, I'm gonna go see what Gunderson thought of it. That guy doesn't suck. See ya later, alligator! {leaves}

STRONG BAD: Yeah, back up your files.

{He presses a key, and the computer explodes, leaving ashes and a demolished tape dispenser.}

STRONG BAD: {coughs} Wah! That's the worst computer explosion I've ever seen! Is there anything I can salvage?! Oh, I think I can see some of the third-quarter analysis spreadsheet in there. Oh! Is that my buddy list?! I gotta back that up!

{Strong Bad pulls out a manilla envelope and begins scooping the ashes into it.}

STRONG BAD: {muttering} Sweep some of this in here... my buddy list... The Cheat, Strong Mad... buddies...

  • The YouTube description for this video is "Strong Bad does not back up his files."

[edit] Remarks

  • The "Yeah, back up your files" line that Strong Bad says appears to have been dubbed in later in production, as the audio quality sounds "muffled". The DVD version of the short appears to have a different inflection of the phrase (with a more irritated Strong Bad).

[edit] Real-World References

  • The "Medi-a-lectrix Playa" is also a reference to Windows Media Player, a Microsoft computer application that renders audio and video content.
  • The "Cat on Fire Falling From an Airplane" video is a spoof of the infamous "Burning Cat" video that began circulating on the Internet about a year before this toon was made.

[edit] Fast Forward

[edit] DVD Version

  • The "Cat On Fire" Easter egg is displayed on a Windows 95 main menu.
  • When Strong Bad says "Back up your files" to Homestar, it sounds more angry, as though it were an insult.
