{"4 Gregs" appears in the center of the screen.}

TEEN GIRL SQUAD VOICE: Four Gregs!

{The numbers 1, 2, 3, and 5 appear, and each number is crossed out over the next line.}

TEEN GIRL SQUAD VOICE: Not one, not two, not three, not five...

{"4 Gregs" appears again.}

TEEN GIRL SQUAD VOICE: Four Gregs!

{Science Fiction Greg appears, holding a bubbly-looking toy gun.}

TEEN GIRL SQUAD VOICE: Sci Fi Greg! One Greg!

{Science Fiction Greg holds up one finger. Cut to D N'D Greg holding a twenty-sided die.}

TEEN GIRL SQUAD VOICE: D N'D Greg! Two Gregs!

{D N'D Greg holds up two fingers. Cut to Open Source Greg holding a laptop.}

TEEN GIRL SQUAD VOICE: Open Source Greg! Three Gregs!

{Open Source Greg holds up three fingers. Cut to Japanese Culture Greg, holding an anime-like action figure.}

TEEN GIRL SQUAD VOICE: Japanese Culture Greg, four Gregs! {Japanese Culture Greg holds up four fingers.} Four Gregs!

{"4 Gregs" appears again. Cut to the four Gregs standing together.}

SCIENCE FICTION GREG: Shields up, everyone. I figured out what we're doing tonight, and it's not any of the stuff you're about to suggest.

D N'D GREG: Play some serious tabletop—

JAPANESE CULTURE GREG: Staring at vinyl figurines?

OPEN SOURCE GREG: Downloading several hours of—

ALL GREGS EXCEPT SCI-FI GREG: {disappointed} Oh.

SCIENCE FICTION GREG: Tonight, new Earthlings... tonight, we go... TO A VARSITY FOOTBALL GAME!

OTHER THREE GREGS: {gasp, with the word "Gasp!" drawn above them}

D N'D GREG: Into the dragon's lair?

{The text bubble remains the same but points to Japanese Culture Greg, with the word "Robotic" inserted into the sentence as he says it.}

JAPANESE CULTURE GREG: Into the robotic dragon's lair?

OPEN SOURCE GREG: Into the Apple store? {As he says "Apple", the text bubble has a "bite" taken out of it, and a leaf appears on it.}

SCIENCE FICTION GREG: That's right. It's the one time we can co-exist at the same social function with football players, but they will be powerless to ridicule and/or wedgie us!

D N'D GREG: Revenge is at hand!

OPEN SOURCE GREG: Huzzah!

JAPANESE CULTURE GREG: {his head suddenly looks extremely animeish} Otaku!

{Cut to the back of a football player wearing a jersey that reads "AT THE GAME", with "888" written below it. Then cut to a set of stands. All of the Gregs except Open Source Greg are visible.}

SCIENCE FICTION GREG: Here we are. In the middle of it all!

{Cut back to show that the three Gregs are sitting in the corner of the stands, and there is a huge radius around them where no one else is sitting; the stands are otherwise packed. There are 14:54 left on the clock, the Growlbacks have "000000" points, and the "Visitor" has 24 points.}

CROWD: YAY!!!

JAPANESE CULTURE GREG: How does football work again?

{Cut to a closeup of the Gregs.}

JAPANESE CULTURE GREG: Is it anything like drift racing?

SCIENCE FICTION GREG: Uh, I think there are some foots {said to rhyme with "loots"}... and uh... perchance a balls?

{Cut to a closeup of D N'D Greg. He's smiling and has sharp teeth. A scroll appears next to him, which has the following written on it:}

The offensive team has 4
chances to advance the ball
10 yards at a time with the
objective being to cross the
opposing teams goal line
using either running plays
or passing plays or any
combination thereof.

D N'D GREG: The offensive team has four chances to advance the ball ten yards at a time with the objective being...

{The other two Gregs are visibly confused. D N'D Greg looks at them with annoyance. Crickets chirp.}

SCIENCE FICTION GREG: It's like I don't even know you anymore.

D N'D GREG: Fantasy football still counts as fantasy!

{Open Source Greg appears, holding a box of food.}

OPEN SOURCE GREG: Gentlemen, I've taken advantage in a security flaw in the concession stand mainframe and bit-torrented us some Sugar Daddys and hot dogs!

JAPANESE CULTURE GREG: But the concession stand is just some booster club okasan {the word in the text bubble is "moms" until he gets to it; his face returns to the "anime" style on that word alone} with a shoebox full of ones.

OPEN SOURCE GREG: Then who did I launch my denial of service attack against?

{Cut to a drawing of a computer screen. The computer is in a browser, on the page "www.tompkins.tv", which is for "Tompkins' Hot Lady Escort Service". Tompkins' face is in the middle of the screen. The page has been viewed "2.4" times.}

NARRATOR STRONG BAD: {in a high-pitched voice; the word appears across the screen as he says it} HAXXORED!!!

TOMPKINS: Ow! All my client!

{Cut back to the game. D N'D and Science Fiction Greg are in the background, as Cheerleader and a short bespectacled girl in braces walk by.}

CHEERLEADER: Didja hear when we walked through the seniors' section? That one boy only got BOTH my names wrong!

SHORT GIRL: You have been chosen.

SCIENCE FICTION GREG: Uh, Cheerleader, shouldn't you be out—

{Cut to a closeup of his mouth, showing misshapen teeth.}

SCIENCE FICTION GREG: Uuuuuhhhhhh...

{Cut back.}

SCIENCE FICTION GREG: —leading cheers?

CHEERLEADER: No, I'm more a cheerleader in the way I dress... and in the way I treat other girls.

SHORT GIRL: That's right.

CHEERLEADER: {smacks the short girl, yelling:} YOU DON'T SPEAK UNLESS SPOKEN TO!

{Cut to a ratty-looking mascot.}

MASCOT: COME ON GROWLBACKS! WE'RE NOT DEAD! AT LEAST TRY TO BEAT THE SPREAD!

{He does a cartwheel near an exasperated-looking color guard member.}

MASCOT: YAAAAY!

{Cut to D N'D Greg.}

D N'D GREG: That level 4 shambling Krenshar is attacking that slightly attractive, slightly overweight color guard maiden!

{He is then seen stomping on the mascot. The color guard member smirks lightly.}

MASCOT: Oh! Crap! Dang! Ribs! Oof!

{He takes off the mascot head.}

REGULAR GREG: Stop! It's just me, Regular Greg from AP Calculus!

D N'D GREG: Trying to take human form, eh? I'll not fall for your sorcery, shapeshifter!

{He continues stomping on Regular Greg. Cut to a hot dog with a face.}

NARRATOR STRONG BAD: Halftime!

{Cut to Science Fiction Greg.}

SCIENCE FICTION GREG: There's a... halph-thyme?

{Cut back to all four Gregs.}

OPEN SOURCE GREG: Uh-oh.

{A bunch of football players crowd around the Gregs and chuckle to themselves. Cut to a scene of some underwear and jock straps flying around, with the words "EXPLiCiT WEDGiE!!" in the middle.}

NARRATOR STRONG BAD: {in a high-pitched voice} EXPLICIT WEDGIE!!

{Cut to the Teen Girl Squad. They've actually been the ones drawing the cartoon. They laugh as "HA HA HA HA"s move around above them.}

WHAT'S HER FACE: Those Gregs are such losers!

{Cut to the Gregs. They've actually been drawing the Teen Girl Squad drawing the cartoon.}

SCIENCE FICTION GREG: Hey! No way! Whats-Her-Face would totally come to my defense!

{Cut to the Teen Girl Squad, with Cheerleader drawing the previous scene.}

WHAT'S HER FACE: Ew! Don't put that! No I wouldn't!

{Cut to the Gregs, as D N'D Greg draws the previous scene.}

OPEN SOURCE GREG: Now make them have a pillow fight!

{Cut to the Teen Girl Squad.}

THE UGLY ONE: Make them play with action figures!

{Cut to the Gregs.}

JAPANESE CULTURE GREG: {with his anime face} AKIHABARA!

{The Teen Girl Squad}

SO AND SO: So good!

{Gregs}

D N'D GREG: SWORDS!

{Girls}

CHEERLEADER: BOYS!

{Cut to Strong Bad, drawing that last scene, falling over.}

STRONG BAD: Waugh!!
