[edit] Transcript

{Similar to the Old New Intro, lights that resemble Homestar running appear. A 3D Homestar runs across, forming the words "HOMESTAR" and "RUNNER", while a chorus sings "Everybody, everybody!" A 3D Homestar Runner logo bursts onto the scene, rotates for a moment, and transitions to Homestar running across The Field. He runs past the Spooky Woods, The Stick, Bubs' Concession Stand (with Bubs inside), the Athletic Field, Strong Badia, Strong Sad, The Cheat with Strong Bad (who gives Homestar the Double Deuce), Strong Mad, Coach Z, Marzipan, Pom Pom talking on his cell phone, Homsar, The Poopsmith with his pile of whatsit, and The King of Town with a sandwich, in turn. It then cuts to a closeup of Homestar.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {singing, off-beat} Everybody! La dee vee dee doh!

{Cut back to show that the scene is on the Lappy, with Strong Bad in front of it.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {singing} Everybody! La dee vee dee doh!
STRONG BAD: {singing simultaneously} Everybody! La dee deleted!!

{Strong Bad hits a key on the Lappy, which causes an explosion "DELETED!" effect, with a smiling fanged Female Lappy in the foreground. After a moment, the explosion fades and the Female Lappy returns to normal. The Paper comes down with the menu options. After some time has passed, it zooms in on the Lappy. The "maze" screensaver is in place. Every time a wall is reached, graffiti resembling Nebulon with "NEB-1" below it appears.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, man! You took so freakin' long, my screensaver turned on!

{The next wall has a large red ball with horns and a face that resembles a devil.}

STRONG BAD: Whoa! A fairly disgruntled cackledemon!

{The screen melts away showing bloody letters reading "PICK SUMPIN ALREADY!" It then zooms back out to the menu.}

STRONG MAD: Did you just say bonus stuff?

STRONG BAD: All right, choosey, time's up.

{The machine displays the TROGDOR! title screen with the accompanying music.}

STRONG BAD: I'm playing Trogdor. {plays the game} Oh yeah, don't stop a-squishing. {Trogdor gets sworded} Aw, man!
