It's like my cow lamp and your tape leg {picture of the cow lamp and Strong Bad's dismembered leg appear over Homestar's head} had a baby in my brain and just came out my mouth! {cloud marked "Cow Leg" comes out of Homestar's mouth} There, there little guy, daddy's here.

{shot of all three; Strong Bad sits down in the chair}

STRONG BAD: {reluctantly} Oh, hand me that knee water... {Homestar hands the glass to Strong Bad}
