[edit] Transcript

{The following messages appear on the screen along with music}

At PAX '08, we hosted a panel called
"Make A Scene With Telltale."

We worked with the audience to create
a scenario and cutscene starring the cast of
Strong Bad's Cool Game For Attractive People
The scene was conceived, written, and voiced
by the audience, and built in the Telltale Tool
by some of our choreographers during the panel.
First, a little set-up...

{Cut to the computer room, with Strong Bad's 3D variation checking his email as usual. The music has stopped.}

STRONG BAD: Give me the emails, Lappy! Shama-lama-dingalama-doomalama-domow!

{He skips "Uh, where are you?" with a quick shake of his head. He pronounces "comeing" as "koh-may-ing". He first begins "We'll try to kill time..." as "We'll try to kill the crowd..." He interrupts himself with "Oh, 'scuse me," and corrects himself. He says "Emily M." as "Emily...M...ily."}

STRONG BAD: PAX? {unemotionally} Oh, right. {snottily} That is so 2004. Is that thing even cool anymore? {clears the screen} {angrily} Well, even though you guys have me working NON-STOP making SBCG4AP, I'd LOVE to drop everything and fly halfway across the country to spend the weekend trading Wii friend codes with a bunch of {yelling} web-comic reading dorks. {Refrains from yelling back to his normal tone} But, I can't. Some, uh, thing {types "something"} came up. But I can explain everything in about 1 minute or less. See, {speaking hesitantly} I was at that place talking to somebody...

{Fades out to a shot of an angled view of Strong Bad from the ground, with the Strong Badia flag in the background.}

STRONG BAD: {The guest imitates him with a deeper-pitch} Uh, man, that guy, that, guy, uh, the King of Town, yeah.

{Cut to an angled straight view the fence, with the King of Town in the middle.}

THE KING OF TOWN: {The guest imitates him with a higher-pitch} Hmm... butter! Rich, creamy— {blandly} Whaaat?! Strong Bad!

{Cut back to Strong Bad}

STRONG BAD: Are you invading Strong Badia with... butter?

{Cut back to the King of Town}

THE KING OF TOWN: Of course not! That's ridiculous! What I'm really doing is... making the largest pancake. {His moustache curves up to resemble a smile}

{Cut to back to Strong Bad, less angled and more close-up.}

STRONG BAD: Okay, now that's much more sensible.

{Cut to Homestar, who appears to have been standing next to the King of Town the entire time.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {The guest imitates him without his usual speech impediments} Uhhh... I'm standing right here, guys, uhhh... {looks below him} in this pancake.

{Cut to Homsar who is floating in front of the fence's left end.}

HOMSAR: {The guest imitates him almost perfectly} DaaAAAAAaaa! I'm the buttersilk pancake!

{Cut back to Homestar}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: He's not kidding, you know. It really is buttery... {soothingly} and delicious. {grins}

{Cut back to Strong Bad}

STRONG BAD: This is ridiculous. We gotta hang out with the coherent people of...Seattle.

{Cut to the King of Town}

THE KING OF TOWN: Coherent? Have you ever been {pronounces "been" as it's spelled} to PAX?

{Fades out back to the Lappy.}

STRONG BAD: {Voiced normally} {music plays} So, E-maily, that why I couldn't make it. Besides, have you seen {does not say "have"} the kind of people {a stretched picture of a PAX audience twirls in from the centers with swoosh sound effects} that show up at those things? {stops typing and mumbles to himself disgustedly} No thanks, man! {The photo twirls back with the same sound} {new line} Duhhh...Tell Ensign {pronounced "en-sine"} Crusher or Jonathan Coulton or whoever that I said what's up. I'll send my seasonal-depressed brother Strong Sad in my place.

STRONG SAD: {Offscreen, with Strong Bad turning his to the left} I can't be bothered with panels. I'm DM'ing the climax of my epic Maps and Minions campaign in tabletop 3 play!

STRONG BAD: Uh, {turns his head forward again} yeah. {new line} Maybe next year. {new line} Buy SBCG4AP! {ends sentence with a period} {new line} That wasn't an ad. {new line} I was just telling SBCG4AP goodbye. {new line} Bye! {quickly} SBCG4AP

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • PAX is a series of annual gaming conventions. It was started by the creators of the webcomic Penny Arcade, hence Strong Bad's remark about "trading Wii friend codes with a bunch of webcomic-reading dorks".

[edit] Remarks

  • Lipsyncing was notably out-of-sync at times, probably from a short time frame the panel had to work with.

[edit] Trivia

  • During the "fan-made" scene, there are constant laughs. They're quite hard to hear because of their low volume.
