[edit] Transcript

{The wall of Strong Bad's basement is visible, and a projector screen snaps down from the ceiling. An offscreen slide projector turns on, filling the screen with white light. The projector displays the first slide: a fan dressed as the Blue Laser Commander.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, man, you guys remember that Cheat Commandos Halloween special where Blue Laser Commander tried to trick-or-treat at Fort Knox so they'd give him all the gold, but when they got there, the receptionist just had, like, a bowl of Smarties on her desk, and he told her that he hated her face—

{A speech bubble appears saying "I JUST HATE YOUR FACE SO MUCH!"}

STRONG BAD:and her kitten sweater!

{Another speech bubble appears saying "AND THAT SWEATER MAKES ME RETCH!"}

STRONG BAD: Man, that guy's a born leader!

{The next slide appears: A fan wearing a red shirt with a white paper star taped to the front. Their arms (and the shirt's sleeves) are pulled inside the shirt; with their right hand they are holding a paper drawing of Homestar's head over their face.}

STRONG BAD: Sadly, I have a feeling this kid actually had a lot of help from his parents with this costume. Like, they stayed up all night workin' on it... spent a lot of money... and "hold this in front of your face" was still the best they could do.

{The next slide appears: A man dressed as a Cold One drinking a beer.}

STRONG BAD: A Cold One drinking a Cold One?! That's cannibalism, man! Or at least... Cold One-ibalism!

{The next slide appears: Two young women in CGNU shirts with "GO CGNU" painted on their cheeks. Each is holding a golf club and a sign; one sign reads "EVERYBODY TO THE LIMIT!" and the other "GO DUMPLES".}

STRONG BAD: Check it out! It's the Lady Dumples Golf Club Team! Man, I seriously gotta start that fake university! It doesn't get any hotter than watching young co-eds beat the crap out of George Foreman grills with a nine-iron!

{The next slide appears: a small child wearing a bee costume and a Strong Bad paper mask.}

STRONG BAD: Hey! Everybody knows I'm the bee! What are ya, some kind of cute baby? ...Oh. You are. Then... carry on, coolest parents in the world!

{The next slide appears: Two fans dressed as Coach Z and Homestar, holding Fluffy Puff Marshmallow bags. The Coach Z costume is a green zentai suit with the crotch lowered to knee level, while Homestar's body and head are fashioned out of large plastic cylinders. A simple hip-hop beat starts playing.}

STRONG BAD: {rapping, imitating Coach Z} My name's Coach Z, and I got a low crotch! {imitating Homestar} My name's Homestaw and I'm wocking the spot! {imitating Coach Z} Everybody knows I'm the rapping man! {imitating Homestar} Evewybody knows I'm a painted twash can! {beat stops}

{The next slide appears: A man wearing a Limozeen-style blond wig and playing a Wii Guitar Hero controller.}

STRONG BAD: Ah, Chuzz Palaroncini. Still livin' in the basement of his parents' basement.

{The next slide appears: A scene of several fans posed in front of a cardboard Bubs' Concession Stand. In order from left to right, they are dressed as Strong Mad, Strong Sad, Bubs, Strong Bad, Marzipan (holding Carol), Homestar, and Coach Z (holding a small dog with a yellow spotted sweater, resembling The Cheat).}

STRONG BAD: These people got the whole freakin' neighborhood involved! And clearly entrusted the Strong Mad costume—

{The next slide appears: A close-up photo of the fan dressed as Strong Mad. The costume is a painted cardboard box with arm holes, showing that they are wearing a leather jacket underneath the costume.}

STRONG BAD: — to Patches Barfjacket, the local drifter.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {doing his "shady drifter" voice} Hey, this box is my house! I'm tryin' to get me a sandwich or somethin'! What's a website?

{The next slide appears: A girl in a black t-shirt with Strong Bad's body drawn on in white outline so that his neck is near the shirt's neckline, and a yellow hard hat with the top of Strong Bad's mask drawn on it.}

STRONG BAD: Wait, why did you— But habbida— The hard-hatted— Rebecca said— The shirt is— I can't even think of anything to say about this conumdrum. This counts as a Homsar costume. And speaking of...

{The next slide appears: A boy in a dark blue shirt with Homsar's "homsar" text taped to it. A piece of paper shaped like Homsar's hat is seen at the top of his head, presumably attached to the door behind him.}

STRONG BAD: {imitating Homsar} AaAaAaAh tape my hat to the door! {normally} Can you explain to me how you went out trick-or-treating in this costume? I mean, did you take the whole door with you? ...That'd be pretty impressive, actually. That'd earn you a full Thnikka if you came to my house.

{The next slide appears: A large full-body costume of Scantron, assembled from cardboard and flexible duct.}

STRONG BAD: Whoa! An incredibly faithful Scantron costume?!

{A notecard drawing of Scantron moves into frame as Strong Bad mentions his name.}

STRONG BAD: Nice work! This guy's the coolest loser I've never met! {The paper disappears.}

{The next slide appears: Two young men in white t-shirts that read "d n'd greg" and "sci-fi greg". "D n' D Greg" is holding a Dungeons & Dragons character sheet, and "Sci-Fi Greg" is holding a Firefly DVD set.}

SCI-FI GREG: The proportions are all wrong! And his chest plate didn't even have the power converter!

STRONG BAD: Why do I get the feeling you guys didn't really have to "dress up" to be Sci-Fi and D n' D Greg?

{The next slide appears: A slim man dressed as the King of Town, in front of an open refrigerator. A datestamp in the corner reads "OCT 30 2008".}

STRONG BAD: October thirtieth, 2008, two PM. Dressed up as the King of Town again today, and stood in front of the open fridge for a few hours. I don't think the medication is working.

{The next slide appears: A large cardboard Trogdor costume. The picture is taken in a driveway, with stairs leading to the house's deck clearly visible.}

STRONG BAD: Hey, that's a pretty awesome Trogdor costume! Look at those corrugated V's! Burninate them brand new deck stairs, Troggie!

{The next slide appears: A close-up picture of a fan in a baggy Coach Z costume. The picture was taken in a bathroom.}

STRONG BAD: Augh! No! I don't even wanna know what's going on in this picture!

{The next slide appears: A topless man in a papier-mâché Strong Bad mask and inflatable boxing gloves standing in a darkened doorway.}

STRONG BAD: Augh! No! I don't even wanna know what's going on in this picture!

{The next slide appears: A boy wearing a Homestar shirt and white face paint, also with a large horned helmet. In the background, a TV can be seen with actor John Cleese onscreen.}

STRONG BAD: Ah, Homestar wearing his Viking helmet, and John Cleese. An age-old Halloween tradition in the Dorkelson household.

{The next slide appears: A man in a Strong Bad mask and boxing gloves. The mask is lopsided - only one of his eyes can be seen through the eyeholes, and the mouth hole is aligned with his chin.}

STRONG BAD: What's up, eyeball-chin? How many mail boxes did you run into on Halloween?

{The next slide appears: A fan wearing a Homestar costume in a park during the daytime. Homestar's head is fashioned into a large hood, with the mouth wide open so the wearer can see out of it; due to the photo's perspective, it looks like the large Homestar mouth is poised to "eat" people in the background.}

STRONG BAD: Whoa, looks like bass-mouth Homestar's about to eat himself a bunch of three-in-the-afternoon trick-or-treaters!

{The next slide appears: A heavyset man in red-and-black Strong Bad face paint.}

STRONG BAD: I... think this guy might have eaten me and sweated my mask out onto his face! That's one way to dress up as Strong Bad for Halloween...

{A "Back" button appears.}

[edit] Easter Eggs

"Y'all pumpkin heads!"
  • By using a seek bar, decompiler, or going to the Flash file, and right-click and selecting Play at the end of the toon, one can see a jack-o'-lantern carved like Peacey P. This was apparently supposed to be accessible by clicking on the man's head at the very end, however the clickable area does nothing.
PEACEY P: I roasted my seeds in the oven with a little bit of cayenne pepper, y'all pumpkin heads!

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • Fort Knox is a military base in Kentucky famous for housing the United States' supply of gold.

[edit] Trivia

[edit] Remarks

  • The Toons menu contains a costume that is a detail photo of Bubs in the scene where Strong Bad says 'They got the whole freakin' neighborhood involved!'
  • Strong Bad says "Everybody knows I'm the Bee" but in fact, it was the Goblin dressed as Strong Bad that was the Bee.
  • After the Peacey P Easter egg is finished, there are 16 extra frames in the Flash file that contain the picture of the Peacey P pumpkin and no sound.
  • The costume in the 9th image is reminiscent of Sir Hotbod Handsomeface, who is essentially a muscular Strong Bad wearing jeans and a hard hat. Hotbod makes his first and only on-site appearance in Teen Girl Squad Issue 10.
  • Coach Z and Homestar both have a bag of Fluffy Puff Marshmallows.
  • Patches Barfjacket, the Local Drifter is a contradictory name given that a "drifter" is someone who tends to not stay in one place very long and therefore cannot be "local".

[edit] Goofs

  • The Peacey P Easter egg does not function properly, and the clickable area does nothing when clicked.

[edit] Fixed Goofs

  • At first release, the "Next" button skipped over the boy in the Homsar costume, and the "Previous" button skipped over the girl wearing the hard hat.

[edit] Inside References

  • The two speech bubbles from the person in the Blue Laser Commander costume refer to lines spoken by him in Cheat Commandos and The Next Epi-Snowed, respectively.
  • Homestar previously did a shady drifter impression and tentatively demanded a sandwich in Halloween Potion-ma-jig.
  • In mocking The King of Town costume, Strong Bad uses the phrase "I don't think the medication is working."
  • Homestar previously wore a Viking helmet in the movies and Ever and More.

[edit] Real-World References

  • Smarties are a brand of chalky pastel-colored candy rolls sold throughout the United States.
  • A George Foreman Grill is a kitchen appliance promoted by former boxer George Foreman.
  • John Cleese is an English actor, comedian, writer, film producer and singer, who is best known as being a member of Monty Python. The scene of him shown on the TV in the photograph is from his appearance on the October 31, 2008 episode of Countdown with Keith Olbermann.
  • Strong Bad's mention of a "Thnikka" is a reference to Snickers.

[edit] Fast Forward

  • The person who ate Strong Bad and sweated his mask returns in Fan 'Stumes 2019.
