Transcript

{Strong Bad and The Cheat are standing in the middle of the field. Strong Bad is holding a toy rocket on the end of a pump. }

STRONG BAD: Oh man, The Cheat. This is gonna be pro-awesome. This thing's gonna shoot all the way up to Europa! And bring us back a couple of Europa-pean lobsters to grill up!

THE CHEAT: {Excited The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: All right. {Pumping the pump} Three... two... one... {He releases the rocket and it falls onto the ground. Strong Bad stares at the sky} Look at it go! I can barely see it already an— {notices the rocket lying on the ground} Oh. That was nothing like the back of the box. {Shaking his fist at the sky} Where's my space lobster? You know what that means. It's time to employ... The Compressor!

{Cut to the same location later on. Strong Bad has attached an air compressor to the rocket, which slowly grows bigger as more air is pumped into it}

STRONG BAD: Three... Two... One...

{The rocket flies into the air}

STRONG BAD: Look at it go! {He runs after it} I can almost taste the buttery claw meats!

{Strong Bad runs into a plastic whale with a microphone in it and falls down. A loud WANG sound effect is heard}

STRONG BAD: Where'd you come from?

MICROPHONE: {Scratchy and difficult to understand voice} Would you like to try a combo meal?

{Strong Bad stands up and dusts himself off}

STRONG BAD: {uncertain} Uh, sure. But no cheese, and, um, extra sauce?

{The Cheat arrives}

THE CHEAT: {Questioning The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: I don't know. I think I just ordered a combo meal from this invisible restaurant. You don't have any invisible cash, do you?

{The Cheat puts his hands in his fur where pockets would be, and takes them out again as if holding money}

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Whoa, you're loaded! {To the microphone} And, uh, let me get a crappy toy meal for my The Cheat here.

MICROPHONE: Nine-seventeen, sever your leg please, sir.

STRONG BAD: Could you repeat that? {Shakes head} I thought you just asked me to sever my leg.

MICROPHONE: Sever your leg, please. It's the greatest day.

STRONG BAD: {Incredulous} "Sever my leg"? "It's the greatest day"? I'm not sure I understand the transaction that's taking place here.

MICROPHONE: Please enter your password.

{It plays a tune}

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: My The Cheat wants to know what your crappy toy is this week.

MICROPHONE: It's brown.

STRONG BAD: {To The Cheat} It's brown.

{The Cheat starts to cry}

STRONG BAD: Well, I guess they're out of blue ones.

{The Cheat cries harder}

STRONG BAD: {Angrily} Look what you did!

MICROPHONE: Steer your car around to the seventh window.

STRONG BAD: What window? You're just a crackly drive-through whale out in the middle of a field! {The word field echoes and the camera angle switches to show the emptiness of the field} Come on, The Cheat. Let's take our invisible business elsewhere.

{Strong Bad and The Cheat walk away. As soon as they're offscreen, the rocket falls back down and breaks open, and a purple lobster with yellow spots comes out.}

MICROPHONE: Sever your leg please, sir.

{The lobster removes one of its claws, and the whale bends down and eats the lobster. Then it blasts off into space. A silhouette of a lobster with "end." written on it appears.}

Easter Eggs

  • Click on "end." for a scene with Strong Bad and The Cheat at another invisible restaurant.
STRONG BAD: Now this place knows how to invisibly treat a person, The Cheat! {to an invisible waiter} Ah, yes, thank you, Inviso-Jeeves. We'd like another bottle of Château Prétende 1974, please. Oh, and, uh, how 'bout a blue one for my little friend here?
THE CHEAT: {pleased The Cheat noises}

Fun Facts

Explanations

Remarks

  • The Field has a flatter, more cartoonish look than usual, with streaky clouds in the sky.
  • "Weird Al" Yankovic's video for his song "Trapped in the Drive-Thru" was also released on March 19 and quite possibly at the same time as the short.
