Transcript

{Open on Coach Z and Strong Sad sitting at a table. Coach Z is wearing a barbute, and Strong Sad is wearing his astronaut helmet}

COACH Z: Oh, it's like a tricycle, but with nineteen wheels instead of three!

STRONG SAD: Coach Z, that's a horrible recipe!

COACH Z: Lemme run this one by ya. We start with a pound of rubber cement...

{Cut to another view of the table, with Strong Mad, Bubs and The Poopsmith. Strong Mad is wearing a Nacho football helmet on top of his head, Bubs is wearing a fire helmet, and The Poopsmith is wearing a Judge Dredd helmet}

BUBS: I haven't been able to fit into my lucky pants for almost ten years! That's why come I'm in such a bad mood all the time!

STRONG MAD: I CAN LET OUT THE WAIST {Holds up needle and an extremely short length of thread} A LITTLE BIT FOR YOU!

BUBS: Hey, that'd be a sweet deal I couldn't refuse!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {offscreen} Order!

{Strong Mad, Bubs and The Poopsmith pay attention. Cut to Homestar, who's wearing his horned Viking helmet and banging a chicken drumstick on the table}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Order! I hereby call this meeting of the Broternal Order of Different Helmets to order! Now let us begin with a rousing rendition of our frothy, shanty chant. {Waving drumstick like a conductor's baton} And one, two, three!

{Cut to another view of the table. Bubs, Strong Bad and Coach Z are visible. Strong Bad is wearing a miner's helmet}

ALL: {singing} Ever and more, ever and more, ever and more!

{Cut to another view. Strong Sad and Pom Pom are visible. Pom Pom is wearing a Samurai helmet. Strong Sad isn't singing and has his arms folded}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Singing—

ALL: {singing} Ever and more, ever and more, ever and more!

{Cut back to Homestar}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: One more time!

{Cut to a shot of The Poopsmith, The King of Town and Strong Sad, slowly zooming out. The King of Town is wearing an Imperial German Army helmet}

ALL: {singing, getting higher at the end} Ever and more...

{Cut to Bubs, Strong Bad and Coach Z, slowly panning left}

ALL: ...ever and more...

{Cut to The Cheat next to Strong Mad. The Cheat is wearing an old-fashioned British policeman's hat.}

ALL: ...ever and more!

{Cut back to Homestar}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Strong Sad! Why weren't you singing?

{Cut to Strong Sad}

STRONG SAD: I don't believe in the message!

{Cut to a view of Pom Pom, Homestar and The Cheat}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Uh, yes you do. All in favor?

{Cut to Bubs, Strong Bad and Coach Z}

ALL EXCEPT STRONG SAD: Aye!

{Cut back to Pom Pom, Homestar and The Cheat}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: All opposed?

{Cut to Strong Sad}

STRONG SAD: Nay!

{Cut back to Pom Pom, Homestar and The Cheat}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: The ayes win! {He ducks under the table and reappears next to Strong Sad} You believe in the message now!

STRONG SAD: {Slapping Homestar on the back and smiling} I really do!

{Homestar ducks under the table and reappears in his original position}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I now give the floor to our treasurer, regarding shiny new ways to misappropriate funds.

{Cut to Bubs}

BUBS: Thank you, Brotherstar Runnerbro... ther. Well, I've taken the minutes {holds them up, music starts playing} from last's month's meeting and sold them as rollover minutes {holds up another piece of paper with a picture of Homsar on it} to third world countries! {places both pieces of paper down} Then I bought myself, I mean the Broternal Order of Different Helmets, a jetski! {holds up a jetski, slightly knocking the light, and puts it down} But then I wrecked it and broke my shin! {holds up crumpled leg} So now my rubbing ointment {holds it up} costs fifty bucks a tube!

{Record scratch sound effect. Music stops. Cut back to Homestar}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Fantastic! And now, to help me demonstrate the new secret handshake, I call forth, Brother of Town.

{The King of Town comes onscreen}

THE KING OF TOWN: Boooo-ooo!
STRONG SAD: {Offscreen, simultaneously} Yaaaaay!

{Homestar and the King of Town move around for a second}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Everybody got it? This: {The word "This" appears onscreen, then Homestar moves around as three arrows appear onscreen} Then this: {The words "Then this" appears onscreen, then Homestar moves around some more and more complex arrows, including one that branches into three, appear on the screen} And now Brother Strong Bad, with his weekly power play.

{Cut to Strong Bad}

STRONG BAD: {Clears throat, then speaks angrily} What's the matter with you guys? I should be in charge here! Why is Homestar running this secret club? {banging his fist on the table} Singing songs and secret handshakes? That's rejected Girl Scout camp material! Put me in charge, and we'll be hitting each other with wooden stools until the morning light! Eating triple-fried pork rinds and burping video game music six ways till Tuesday! "Ever and More"? That's horse puckey, you fools! It's all marketing mumbo jumbo! {upset} Don't believe a word of it!!

{Strong Bad pants and shakes. Homestar leans onscreen.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Thank you, Strong Bad. We look forward to hearing from you next week.

STRONG BAD: {subdued} Thank you, Supreme Overlord.

{Homestar leans offscreen. Cut to Homestar}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: And with that, our meeting is adjourned. So everybody buddy up and get to work on that secret handshake. I'm gonna go take a bath in a pile of gold coins.

{Homestar walks offscreen. Cut to Strong Bad and The Cheat imitating the movements Homestar and the King of Town made earlier, with their hands on their hips. Cut to the words "end, friend." on a black screen}

Easter Eggs

  • Click on "friend." at the end of the short to see Homestar Runner laying in a bathtub full of gold coins in the bathroom of the Brothers Strong.
HOMESTAR RUNNER: {singing to the tune of the DuckTales theme song} Lasers, race cars, aeroplanes, doot doo, ah-doot doo!

Fun Facts

Explanations

  • "Broternal" is a portmanteau of "brotherhood" and "fraternal", two words that are often found in names of male-only secret societies.
  • Rollover minutes, offered by AT&T Mobility (formerly Cingular Wireless), are unused wireless phone minutes from one month that can be carried over and used in the next.
  • Meeting minutes are a summary of what was discussed at a meeting.
  • The page title conforms to the practice of referring to a local union as a "local" followed by that local union's number. These organizations are also commonly named "brotherhoods" or "fraternal orders".

Trivia

Goofs

I HAVE A FUNNY MOUTH!
  • When Strong Mad holds up the needle, his "O" mouth animation causes an extra line to overlap the needle.
  • There are numerous inconsistencies regarding the placement of the characters around the table. For instance, in the first shot Coach Z is on Strong Sad's right, but in a later shot (during the song) The King of Town appears on Strong Sad's right. Also, the Poopsmith is on Bubs's left when he is talking about his lucky pants, but when they are singing "Ever and More!" Strong Bad is on Bubs' left.

Old Style Cold Ones
  • The Poopsmith is wearing Judge Dredd's helmet.
  • The Cold Ones Light poster closely resembles the Old Style beer logo.
  • The lyrics Homestar sings in the bathtub of gold coins are a rearranged segment of the theme song to Disney's DuckTales, with the lines "racecars, lasers, aeroplanes" changed to "lasers, racecars, aeroplanes, and "It's a duck blur" replaced with "Doot do, ah doot-do." Homestar's behavior mirrors Scrooge McDuck's, who enjoyed diving through his coin-filled Money Bin.
