[edit] Transcript

STRONG BAD: {singing} Dah doh, doo doh, email me some words, doo-doo, some different words.

{Reading email}

{Strong Bad grumbles instead of saying the word "Grumbles".}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Uh, you don't really have to MAKE Homestar say stupid stuff, {grumbles again as he types "Grumbles"}, that's the guy's bread n' butter. Or at least his, uh, cracker n' mustard. No, the REAL challenge is to get Homestar to say something intelligent. {He clears the screen and continues typing.} If I can do that, then you owe me a batch of your special Grumblecakes. And if I fail, then I'll quit stealing the bricks from your house, one by one. {quickly} Deal? Deal.

{Strong Bad goes to get up from his chair and Homestar Runner is leaning over his shoulder.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {quietly} Hi, Strong Bad.

STRONG BAD: {surprised} Ah, geez! Homestar!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Strong Bad, do you notice anything different about me today?

STRONG BAD: Um, you broke into my house?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: No, I'm always doing that.

STRONG BAD: {apparently unperturbed} Okay, what?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {standing on one foot} I'm standing on one foot!

STRONG BAD: Yeah, great. Look, I'll give you half a Grumblecake if you can say something intelligent.


STRONG BAD: It's like a little cake with some, like, steam and sugar.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: No, no, the other one.

STRONG BAD: Oh, "intelligent"?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah, yeah, Intellivision.

STRONG BAD: You know, something smart.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I think I can do that. {attempts to look shifty and cunning} What's in it for me?

STRONG BAD: {annoyed} Half a Grumblecake!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, right. Okay, here goes. A—

STRONG BAD: No wait, put this stuff on. It'll add to the illusion.

{Strong Bad gives Homestar Runner a white lab coat, black-rimmed glasses with masking tape, and a test tube. Homestar uses the test tube as if it was a microphone and he was interviewing Strong Bad.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Whoa, check me out, Strong Bad, I look a-smart!

STRONG BAD: You sure do, stupid. Now say something.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {smugly} And I'm standing on one foot!

STRONG BAD: {urging} Come on, say something smart! You can do it!


STRONG BAD: Uh, that's pretty good. Keep going!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Science again! I said science again!

STRONG BAD: Let's move away from science. Try math.


STRONG BAD: Okay, this isn't going—


STRONG BAD: {groans} I need to get my hands on some of them Grumblecakes! Maybe if I employ a little reverse psychologies... If I ask a stupid enough question, I'll get an intelligent answer! {clears throat} I say there, Homestar, butt's twelve by pies?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ooh, yes! I got Strong Bad to say something stupid! {triumphantly} The Grumblecakes will be mine!

{Homestar runs off.}

STRONG BAD: What?! What the crap just happened?! Is it possible that I was just... outsmarted by Homestar Runner?! {typing, shouting, and raising his fist} I'LL GET YOU KEVIN {grumbles as he types "GRUMBLES"}!!! {The Cheat enters with a tray of The Cheatcakes.}

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Get that mess outta here! I don't want none o' those Cheatcakes!

{Strong Bad smacks the tray of The Cheatcakes out of The Cheat's hands.}

THE CHEAT: {angry The Cheat noises}

{The Cheat exits dejectedly.}

STRONG BAD: {apologetically} No, wait, The Cheat, come back!

{The Cheat comes back}

STRONG BAD: Will you, um, fix me some... mustard crackers?

THE CHEAT: {angry The Cheat noises}

{The Cheat exits again. The Paper comes down.}
