[edit] Transcript

STRONG BAD: Strong Bad Email is filmed before a live studio audience.

STRONG BAD: {typing} Well, sorta, Aaron. But see, there's only one power. Though I guess it is pretty super. Check it out.

{He turns to his left and picks up a Cold One. He tenses up in concentration, and his blue diamond starts glowing, making a beamy sound, first faintly, then finally reaching a powerful peak, causing the bottle cap to pop off. A little foam comes out of the bottle.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} So, there you go. It's not much, but as you can imagine it's a big hit with the ladies. {spoken} And {typed} So far I've only found it works with cold ones. {thoughtfully} But come to think of it...

{Strong Bad gets up. Cut to the locker room. Coach Z and Homestar are talking to each other.}

COACH Z: Oh, I'd definitely say it's just a result of tight pants.

{Strong Bad peeks out from behind a locker.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oooohh, tight paaants!

{Strong Bad uses the blue diamond on his forehead to make Homestar's cap pop off.}


{Strong Bad snickers. Homestar picks his cap up and looks back at Coach Z.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Sorry about that. What were we talking about?

COACH Z: The tightest of pants.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, right, right. Tight pants.

{Strong Bad uses his blue diamond to make Homestar's cap pop off again.}


{Strong Bad snickers again as Homestar picks up his cap again.}

COACH Z: Are you okay there, Homestar?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I don't know. Is my head getting bigger?

{The Paper comes down. Strong Bad forces Homestar's cap to pop off for the third time, causing Homestar to once again pick it up.}

COACH Z: Once again, I point the blame squarely at tight pants.
