[edit] Transcript

{The Sweet Cuppin' Cakes logo appears against a pink background. It disappears for an instant, then a title saying "Cactus Coffee and the No Tell Motel" appears. It is then flooded from the bottom by a black liquid-like substance, which turns into a night sky. The camera pans down to the normal Sweet Cuppin' Cakes tableau. Sherlock and The Worm are present.}

SHERLOCK: {mumbling}

THE WORM: Up, down... Up, down... Up... {Sherlock jumps up, then bites The Worm and starts pulling.}

SHERLOCK: {grunting}

{Sherlock pulls out a pot that flips end-over-end and lands on top of him. The Wheelchair appears and pops the lid off the pot.}

THE WHEELCHAIR: Mmm-mmm! Berled holiday cabbage!

{Eh! Steve slowly rises out of pot, covered in Christmas tree ornaments.}

THE WHEELCHAIR: Eh! Steve, get your sassy-frass out my berled holiday cabbage!

{Eh! Steve! jumps into the air, and the scene freezes. His mouth starts shining, and rises into the air.}

EH! STEVE!'S MOUTH: Eh! Steve!

{Eh! Steve's mouth disappears; Gothic blackletter reading "EH! STEVE!" appears and drifts back down toward Earth.}

THE WORM: {cartoonish accent} Is a miracle.

{Words "IS A MIRACLE" appear from The Worm's cartoonishly large mouth.}

{Keyboard Strong Bad pops into existence and plays Jingle Bells. Everyone starts dancing.}

{Cut to a scene of Ready For Primetime dancing. Then cut to Strong Bad and Homestar at Homestar's house watching the show on TV.}

STRONG BAD: Uh... Didn't I invent this cartoon?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah, I think so.

STRONG BAD: Then how come I can't understand a lick of it?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: What's not to understand? {Strong Bad turns to Homestar.} Eh! Steve!'s mouth exploded the universe, and that blond guy did a tiny, tiny dance.

STRONG BAD: {sarcastic} Oh, right. The true meaning of Decemberween.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah yeah; right right.

STRONG BAD: Pff. Whatever. I'm-a go "re-nog."

{Strong Bad holds up a half-empty glass of eggnog and leaves the room. The scene dims, the back button appears. After a few seconds:}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {whispering} Will you turn the lights back on when you come back in?

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • Strong Bad mentions eggnog, a drink popular during the holiday season.
  • "Sassyfrass" refers to sassafrass.
  • "No-Tell Motel" is a slang term for a type of motel that charges by the hour and doesn't ask too many questions.

[edit] Trivia

  • It is believed that Keyboard Strong Bad's head is a Casio VL-Tone, but the song at the end of the Toon is played on a Casio playtime-keyboard.
  • If you look under the TV, you can see three Joy of Painting tapes.
  • When the pot falls on Sherlock, it makes the same sound as when the Heavy Lourde falls on someone.

[edit] Goofs

  • After Eh! Steve!'s mouth explodes, the "burled" holiday cabbage is mysteriously gone, and the worm is back in the hole, even though Sherlock had pulled him out at the beginning of the show. However, given the nature of the Sweet Cuppin' Cakes universe, it's possible that such unexplained inconsistencies are within the normal course of events.
  • At the end, Strong Bad's left eye is bigger than his right eye.

[edit] Inside References

  • Ready For Primetime first appeared in haircut.
  • The episode name, "Cactus Coffee and the No-Tell Motel," refers to Strong Bad's mention in the email crazy cartoon that the name of a "crazy cartoon" has nothing to do with the cartoon itself.

[edit] Fast Forward

  • When Keyboard Strong Bad presses the demo button on his head, the first few notes before Jingle Bells starts playing are in the same rhythm used when Strong Bad sings "Ding ding dong, ding ding dong, ding ding Dear Strong Bad" at the beginning of Strong Bad Email #163 what I want.
