[edit] Transcript

{Strong Bad and Homestar Runner are standing on a racetrack near a pool.}

STRONG BAD: All right, Homestar. I'm not sure why this never occurred to me before, but some French guy told me to beat you up, and I tend to think he's right. Put up your dukes!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, hello, Strong Bad! Are you here to watch the race?

STRONG BAD: A race? You mean like a race-race? Race-race-race?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: You haven't heard about the Free Country USA Triannual Race to the End of the Race?! It's only the coolest and most important sporting event in the history of sporting events I'm about to compete in ever!

STRONG BAD: A race, eh? You know, beating you in a race would be almost as much fun as beating you senseless!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I'd like to see you try, Strong Bad! I've been trainin' my twees off for weeks now. Besides, Marzipan has promised me a big victory party after I win!

STRONG BAD: Did someone say "Pwahty"?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh hecks yeah! Marzipan's putting together a huge party, with floats, and cake jugglers, and balloon manimals, and—

STRONG BAD: And why was I, Lord High Awesome Party, occasionally known as Strong Bad, not invited?!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {whisperingly} Whisperingly, I don't think Marzipan likes you very much.

STRONG BAD: All this race talk has intrigued me. I believe I will postpone your pummeling for now.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Pummeling?

{A cell phone ring is heard. Homestar produces a cell phone.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hold on. I gotta take this. {takes the call and holds the phone to his face} Yes, Marzipan? Yes? Yes. Yes. Yes? Noooo! Yes! Yes! {closeup on Strong Bad, who looks toward the camera and shakes his head} I miss you too, puddin' sack. See you after the race! Bye!

STRONG BAD: Girlfriend troubles?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Not me, bro. Marzipan just wanted my opinion on the decorations. And the cake jugglers. And the {suddenly growing annoyed} plight of the low-lands toad weasel. And the bgh bzjt breh!

{He kicks the phone away in anger. It lands near Coach Z, who can be seen with video equipment. Cut back to Homestar.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {annoyed} Pardon me. I'm off to the locker room to reacquire my game face.

{He walks away and the screen fades to a splash screen for Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People.}

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Trivia

  • A few days after the "Track" trailer was released, it was edited with the following known changes:
    • The blocking in many scenes was slightly different.
    • Strong Bad's original first line was "All right, Homestar, the time for our ultimate throwdown of total death-tiny has arrived! Put 'em up!"
    • At three points in the dialogue, (before "A race?", before "Did someone say pwahty?", and before "All this race talk...") a choice box appeared above Strong Bad's head. A cursor chose which topic Strong Bad would discuss the first two times, but just closed the box the third time.
    • A very slight difference in Homestar's expression is added after Strong Bad decides to "postpone" Homestar's pummeling. When Homestar responds by asking "Pummeling?", Homestar's eyes squint in an angry way. This does not occur in the first version.
    • The scoreboard had the initials CZ and PP on it. It now reads "OFFICIAL RACE TIMES".
    • Various graphical glitches have been removed.

[edit] Remarks

  • This video takes place near the beginning of the game.
