[edit] Pompomerania

[edit] On first arrival

{The screen fades in to show Pom Pom standing underneath a katana horizonally held onto the wall.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Pompomerania: exotic land of enchantment! {zoom on the DJ booth} Mystery! {zoom on the Cold Ones Dry display} And ladies' drinks specials {zoom on two shelves of multi-colored bottles} on Tuesday nights!

{Strong Bad arrives inside the building through a small door.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} I quickly made my way to a trendy pwawty cloughb in the nation's capital... {turns towards the camera} (a trendy pwawty cloughb)... {walks towards the bar, voiceover resumes} ...for a summit with their pop-o-matic prime minister.

{The camera slightly pans to show Bubs tending the bar.}

BUBS: Hey, Strong Bad!
STRONG BAD: {confused} Bubs?!? You're the leader of Pompomerania?
BUBS: Heck, no! I'm just tending bar and doing some occasional translational work. And I'm definitely not embezzling thousands in cash from the club!
STRONG BAD: How sweet of you.

[edit] Bubs

STRONG BAD: What are you doing in Pompomerania, Bubs?
BUBS: Oh, I was stationed here after the war and fell in love with the place.

[edit] Bubs → Strong Badia

STRONG BAD: Say, barkeep, got any tips on how I can get Pom Pom to join my evil empire?
BUBS: You're gonna have to impress him first, and that ain't gonna be easy. His Royal Coolness Shogun Pom Pom has taste, class, style and panache. All out the royal wazoo.
STRONG BAD: Eww. Sounds painful. So what I gotta do? Out-cool him? Out-cool... gulp... his wazoo?
BUBS: Not while I'm bartending! No, the way to impress the shogun is to look cool on the dance floor.
STRONG BAD: That'll be easy! I look cool on all types of floors! And I can dance like a robot programmed to dance like a good-dancing human!
BUBS: Well, good luck. But I'll tell ya, it'll take more than just dancin' out there. I don't care what type-a robot you are.

STRONG BAD: C'mon, Bubs, gimme the secret to Pom Pom domination. Or Pomination as I like to—
BUBS: {interrupts} I already told ya, ya gotta bust some styles out on the dance floor and look cool doin' it. Then you might impress Shogun Pom Pom.

[edit] Bubs → Cocktail

First time only

STRONG BAD: Give me one of those obscenely overpriced drinks, Bubs!
BUBS: What'll it be?
STRONG BAD: Which one tastes the best?
BUBS: {agitated} Taste? It's not about TASTE! Son, you're in Pompomerania now! Where being cool is all about holding the right drink. So which is it?

STRONG BAD: Give me one of those obscenely overpriced drinks, Bubs!
BUBS: What'll it be?
[edit] Bubs → Cold One
STRONG BAD: Gimme a tall, frosty Cold One.
BUBS: This is a classy place, Strong Bad. We only serve Cold Ones Extra Stout Black. {gets out the drink}
STRONG BAD: Ten pounds of wheat in every bottle!

STRONG BAD: Gimme a tall, frosty Cold One.
BUBS: Comin' right up! {gets out the drink}
[edit] Bubs → Bull Honkey
STRONG BAD: How about a thin, overpriced can of Bull Honkey?
BUBS: One energy sauce coming right up! {gets out the drink} That takes me back. I remember when people thought it was cool to order Bull Honkey.

STRONG BAD: A can of Bull Honkey, Bubs. And make it special.
BUBS: One energy sauce coming right up! {gets out the drink, with no changes from the first Bull Honkey given}
STRONG BAD: THAT'S special? You could at least put a little umbrella or flag in it.
BUBS: Oh, all right. {gives Strong Bad a souveneir flag for Pompomerania}

STRONG BAD: How about a thin, overpriced can of Bull Honkey?
BUBS: One energy sauce coming right up! {gets out the drink}
[edit] Bubs → Glowing Drink
STRONG BAD: I want the most expensive, glowinest drink you've got.
BUBS: A-ha! I've got just the thing. {gets out the drink} The Atom-Smasher Guarana Blast. A personal favorite of the shogun!

STRONG BAD: Give me another one of those glowy drinks.
BUBS: Here ya go! {gets the drink out}

[edit] Bubs → Dancing Strong Bad Silhouette

STRONG BAD: You gotta give me some pointers on how to dance cool, Bubs.
BUBS: Cool dancin' can't be taught, Strong Bad, but it can be bought!

[edit] Glowsticks → Bubs

STRONG BAD: Naw, man. Bubs isn't part of the glowstick generation. He's more part of the "oohwa oohwa" {emphasized in a gruff, high-pitched voice} generation.

[edit] Bull Honkey

STRONG BAD: Bull Honkey Caffinergy Sauce. {takes it} The thin can energy drink for people so cool they don't NEED to use their eyelids!

If The Cheat and Tirerea hasn't been annexed

STRONG BAD: {faces Pom Pom} Bull Honkey?
POM POM: {bored bubble noises}
STRONG BAD: {frustrated} Two years ago? Caffinergy sauce NEVER goes out of style! {tosses the can behind him}

If The Cheat and Tirerea has been annexed

STRONG BAD: {jumps onto the dance floor} Step aside, pwawty pweople. Strong Bad's all up in this coffee mug. {dances}
POM POM: {bubbles unamusingly}
STRONG BAD: What?! Those moves were fresh-baked this morning! {throws the can behind him}

If Pompomerania has been annexed

STRONG BAD: Bull Honkey Caffinergy Sauce. {takes it}

[edit] Cold One Stout

STRONG BAD: Cold Ones Extra Stout Black. {takes it} So rich, thick, and dark, you can't believe it's a liquid.

STRONG BAD: Building a powerful empire builds up a powerful thirst. {quickly drinks it and throws the empty bottle behind him}

If The Cheat and Tirerea has been annexed

If The Cheat and Tirerea hasn't been annexed

STRONG BAD: Check it out! Nothing that glows like this can't NOT be cool!
POM POM: {bored bubble noises}
STRONG BAD: Oh, you think I'm a poser? Whatever, man. I was over these NORMAL glowy drinks years ago. I was just... uh... {throws the glass behind his back} ...showing you how much it sucked.

If The Cheat and Tirerea has been annexed

STRONG BAD: {walks onto the dancefloor} Hang on, glowy rumpshaker comin' through. {dances}
POM POM: {bubbles unamusingly}
STRONG BAD: Aw come on, that was the righteoustest! {tosses the glass behind him}
BUBS: Come on, wrestle man! You're not gonna form any alliances with a plain ol' glowy drink like that!

[edit] Glowsticks → Glowing Drink

STRONG BAD: {puts the glowsticks into the drink, making it glow a neon green color} Now we're talking! I bet you can see this thing from space! {looks up} Hey astronauts, throw me down some freeze-dried ice cream! And none of that Neapolitan crap!

[edit] Brightly Glowing Drink

STRONG BAD: {takes it} Whoa! Now I can separate the strobe light honeys from the actual hot girls... and probably blind a few in the process!

If The Cheat and Tirerea hasn't been annexed

STRONG BAD: 'Sup, Pom Pom. What're you drinking? Cool, cool. But can it do... THIS?

{The drink flashes brightly as Strong Bad dances all around the club - first on the table next to Pom Pom, then on top of the bar counter, then flying under the sword holder, and finally around the dance floor.}

POM POM: {bubbles}
STRONG BAD: Yeah. Kinda falls flat with no music. I was hoping the drink might supply its own soundtrack. Guess not. {drinks it and tosses the glass behind him}

If The Cheat and Tirerea has been annexed

STRONG BAD: All right, Pom Pom, prepare to be blinded by awesomosity.

{Strong Bad holds the drink in the air, which glows brightly and lifts him into the air; Pom Pom stares at him, mesmerised by his actions.}

THE CHEAT: {squinting his eyes} MEH!
BUBS: {squinting his eyes} Now that's what I call an entrance!
POM POM: {bubbles excitedly}
STRONG BAD: Wait, you'll join Strong Badia? But I didn't even get a chance to show off my moves...
BUBS: Quit while you're ahead!

{Old timey music is heard as the screen focuses on the map, with Pompomerania now turning red.}

ANNOUNCER: Pompomerania, jewel of the east! And now that jewel's in Strong Bad's crown, as he's bounced into their heathen land and showed them how our boys do things back home! From here, Strong Bad can set his sights on ALL the free nations of the world! Maybe we should all start brushing up on our "awesome"!

[edit] Sign

STRONG BAD: That must've come from one seriously Strong Mad-sized bottle of Cold Ones Dry!

STRONG BAD: Coldonesdry: the study, diagnosis and prevention of disorders of the Coldones.

[edit] Box of Glow Sticks

STRONG BAD: These are the glow sticks that The Cheat gives out when he's spinning at the cloughb. {takes one} For years I thought these were those waxy soda bottle candies. Then my doctor told me my stomach had a half-life of 302!

STRONG BAD: These are the glow sticks that The Cheat gives out when he's spinning at the cloughb. {takes one}

If there already is a set of glowsticks in the inventory

STRONG BAD: For years I thought these were those waxy soda bottle candies. Then my doctor told me my stomach had a half-life of 302!

[edit] Box

STRONG BAD: {looks under it} Page 4 of my Algebros instruction manual! This one unlocks the mysteries of the "divide by zero" move!

[edit] Bottles

STRONG BAD: Say, Bubs. Can you do any cool tricks with these bwattles?
BUBS: {angrily} You mean like smash one over the counter and stab a guy with it just for asking me dumb questions?
STRONG BAD: No. I meant like... juggle.

After Bubs leaves the club

STRONG BAD: Not so intriguing.

[edit] Dance Floor

If The Cheat and Tirerea hasn't been annexed

STRONG BAD: How am I supposed to bust moves if nobody's busting any grooves?

If The Cheat and Tirerea has been annexed

STRONG BAD: {faces Pom Pom} Hey, Shogun, you look a little vanilla, how's about a little FLAVA!! {dances}
POM POM: {bubbles}
BUBS: No fuzzy dice, Strong Bad. The shogun thinks you look too... empty handed.

[edit] DJ Booth

If The Cheat and Tirerea hasn't been annexed

STRONG BAD: Man, I don't even know if a country without a DJ is even WORTH taking over.

If The Cheat and Tirerea has been annexed

STRONG BAD: DJ Teh Cheat's working the extended trance remix of "The Geddup Noise". It lasts 16 hours!

After Pompomerania has been annexed

STRONG BAD: The Cheat doesn't need this thing, he's got a stockpile of 'em.

[edit] Lighter → The Cheat

STRONG BAD: You can't do the lighter hold-up for dance music! That's for arena rock ONLY.

[edit] Pom Pom

POM POM: {bubbles}
STRONG BAD: That's "Emperor" Strong Bad to you. But let's cut to the chase. Your glowy, LED-infused nightlife and cooler cell phones amuse me. We should discuss an alliance.
POM POM: {bubbles unamusingly}
STRONG BAD: Not cool enough?! You gotta be kidding! Before I became Emperor, I served three terms as the Malarquee of Cool!
POM POM: {bubbles unamusingly}
BUBS: You're gonna have to back up them fancy words with fancier actions if you wanna impress the shogun.

After annexing Pompomerania

STRONG BAD: Pom Pom, I want you to be the style advisor for my new empire. Not that I need one, but you market well to the valuable 7-36 demographic.
POM POM: {bubbles}
STRONG BAD: Oh, I don't need ANY help with the ladies. Unless you know some. Do you?

During Extended Play

STRONG BAD: Nice work helping me win the war back there, Pom Pom.
POM POM: {bubbles angrily}

[edit] Pom Pom → Strong Badia

STRONG BAD: All right, fine. I'll let you join Strong Badia, just stop begging.
POM POM: {bubbles with agitation}
STRONG BAD: I accept your gracious... NO STYLE?!! I'm an erupting volcano of style! Laying waste to the unstylish villagers below! And I can prove it! Uh... any ideas on how I can prove it?
POM POM: {bubbles seriously}
STRONG BAD: Dance? That's all I gotta do? Shake my sweet shining can?
BUBS: I don't know, Strong Bad. It's gonna take more than a shiny butt to impress the shogun!

STRONG BAD: {agitated} Do I have to dance? I just wanna get through to the next country. Couldn't you just give me a right of passage? Or a work visa? Or a green card? You don't want to get married, do ya?
POM POM: {bubbles angrily}
STRONG BAD: {frustrated} Aw man! Politicking is ticking me off!

[edit] Pom Pom → Pom Pom

STRONG BAD: What are some of Pompomerania's chief exports?
POM POM: {bubbles conversationally}
STRONG BAD: That's pretty cool. I love those. What else?
POM POM: {bubbles}
STRONG BAD: Dang! Seriously? With the red tips and everything?
POM POM: {bubbles}
STRONG BAD: {excited} ...whoa! Is that even legal? Or ethnical? Or... physically possible without the use of time travel?
BUBS: You shoulda seen 'em before the United Nations got involved!

During extended play

STRONG BAD: What were you doing the whole time I was in the castle battling the butter-thirsty revolutionaries?
POM POM: {bubbles conversationally}
STRONG BAD: Top secret yellow-and-orange-op espionage tactical action strategy?
POM POM: {bubbles}
STRONG BAD: Wow, man, that's hardcore! I take back eight of the 15 nasty things I said about you.

[edit] Pom Pom → Cocktail

This can only be seen if Bubs has left the club.

STRONG BAD: What happened to Bubs the barkeep?
POM POM: {bubbles}
STRONG BAD: DJ Teh Cheat put on a Two-o Duo record? And then Bubs got angry and stormed out of the cloughb?
POM POM: {bubbles angrily}
STRONG BAD: Sorry. I'll stop repeating everything you say.

[edit] Fake Sword → Pom Pom

STRONG BAD: {pretends to knight Pom Pom} I dub thee... Sir Bubbles.

[edit] Glowsticks → Pom Pom

STRONG BAD: Check it out, Pom Pom! Pretty cool, huh?
POM POM: {bubbles}
STRONG BAD: Yeah, I shoulda known he wouldn't be impressed by early '90s parlor tricks.

STRONG BAD: Pom Pom's not impressed by early '90s parlor tricks.

[edit] Katana → Pom Pom

STRONG BAD: Violence is usually the answer, but the last time I tried to attack Pom Pom, he combo-moved me into next week.

[edit] Lighter → Pom Pom

STRONG BAD: Nah, I'm not sure what Pom Pom's filled with. He might go all Hindenburg on us.

[edit] Kimono

STRONG BAD: Apparently Pom Pom buys his dresses at the Big & Round Men's Shop.

[edit] Lighter → Kimono

STRONG BAD: {burns the kimono and turns to the camera} The Flaming Kimonos. Sounds like one of those messy-haired Strong Sad bands.

[edit] Samurai Sword

STRONG BAD: Hmmm, it's a razor-sharp, decorative samurai sword. I bet that thing could julienne a phone book into a tin can!

{Strong Bad tries to take it, but Pom Pom angrily bubbles at him for attempting to do so.}


STRONG BAD: I can't just take that samurai sword without Pom Pom noticing.

[edit] Fake Sword → Samurai Sword

STRONG BAD: The Strong Bad moves like the stinky breeze. {swaps the two swords around} By the time you smell it, he's already gone.

[edit] Glowsticks → Samurai Sword

STRONG BAD: Glowing swords USED to be cool, until SOMEONE ruined my childhood.

[edit] Fake Sword

STRONG BAD: It's the dull fake sword Strong Sad uses for his... shudder... live-action role playing.

STRONG BAD: {swaps both swords around} The stinky breeze strikes once again... ever silent, ever deadly.
