--The transcript is still unfinished, anyone can take over and finish the rest of it--

{As usual, the toon starts in the basement of the Brothers Strong; the light dims and the projector screen comes down. The first image displayed is a bald man wearing make up to resembles Strong Bad's mask. Two keyboards can be seen behind him.}

STRONG BAD: {singing in the tune of The System is Down. Every time he says "bald", the image is mirrored} The system is bald! The system is bald! Bald, bald, bald, bald! {The image is covered with some rave effects and the image randomly reversed or flipped upside down} DOO-DA-DOO-DA-DIDDLE DOO-DA-DOO-DA-DIDDLE DOO-DA-DOO-DA-DIDDLE DOO-DA-DOO-DA-DIDDLE!

{The next image shows a guy in a The Cheat hoodie kneeling down. A glow stick appears and spins in front of him.}

STRONG BAD: {resumes singing and mimics a techno beat mimics} Doom doom doom doom doom doom. The system is bald! {The picture of the guy in the Strong Bad makeup appears again. The image then spins around} Dah dah doh-la dah dah!

{The next image shows up with the same man as before, holding a glass next to a man dressed as Ned Flanders. A little piano ditty plays.}

STRONG BAD: {singing to a different tune} Now go out and have a Cold One with Ned Flanders!

{The next frame shows a giant Homestar costume}

STRONG BAD: Impressive Homestar costume! I see you made him with his rectangle mouth, which I like to call 'Cartridge Mouth Homestar'! I'm always tempted to shove a VHS tape {as Strong Bad lists the examples, the item gets inserted and pressed down into Homestar's mouth} or a dusty old musty Game Pak right in there!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I found that SHMUPs taste best! You know, like Xeliogravius IV? {the box for Videlectrix game Xeliogravius IV drops down, showing a ship fighting a green alien in what appears to be in a red and pink area with white spikes on the cover. On it is a caption that says "Not a total rip-off!"} It's a good game.

{The next slide shows a man dressed up as Coach Z. As he speaks, he shows other people dressed up as the same character.}

STRONG BAD: Hey, there's actually some pretty good looking Coach Z costumes this year! You guys really— {reacts to the third photo} Oh, the pain! {reacts to the fourth} Oh, the mercy! All right, you guys! I'm calling it! I don't want to see anybody wearing this skin tight green jobs next year!

COACH Z: Okay, you asked for it! {Coach Z hums to himself as some rustling can be heard, accompanied by squishing noises}

STRONG BAD: Ah! I was talking about the fans! And what did I tell you about humming those saucy "getting undressed" songs?


{The "INA-PRO-PRO" stamp is slammed onto the screen, accompanied with a buzzer. The next image shows a man dressed up as Senor Cardgage holding a bag. The "INA-PRO-PRO" stamp is slammed onto the image again.}

STRONG BAD: Oh my dear yes! Gonna have to get analogous on this one.

{An analysis sheet is pulled up. The top is written "ANALOGY WORKSHEET - Unit 1 - Cardgage" with the bottom written "this guy: cardgage:: cardgage: strong bad". As Strong Bad mentions the characters, the drawings of them show up. The second time Strong Bad mentions Senor Cardgage, the image for it is flipped.}

STRONG BAD: This guy's costume is to Cardgage, as Cardgage is to Strong Bad. {The sheet moves out of view} He's like a Cardgage among Cardgages. He's like Cardgage squared! Aww, and look! {zooms in on the bag of a take out bag of Chick-fil-A lying on the ground} Somebody finally took him to {imitates Cardgage} Chick-fil-A.

{The next image shows a guy dressed as D n'D Greg and a woman dressed as What's Her Face. A Slayer poster can be seen behind them}

STRONG BAD: Hey, that's a dead on D n'D Greg and What's Her Face, and your wall even dressed up as D n'D Greg's front hallway!

{Speech bubbles for D n'D Greg and What's Her Face appear}

D N'D GREG: The KROKUS banner on my front porch drew her near... and this Slayer poster in the hallway won her heart.

WHAT'S HER FACE: Uhh... I like pavement.

{The next image shows another giant Homestar costume standing in front of a closed door}

STRONG BAD: B-WHOA-HO-HO! If I come out the bathroom and I saw that thing standing in the hallway, I's call in the SWAT flamethrower strike team. {Mimics a caller} Uh, yes, officer, there's a seven foot tall Homestar Runner with saggy ankles standing in my s-st-stounch! {laughs over his next few lines} That's what we call the area between the bathroom and the laundry room. The stounch. Come and get him. In my stounch.

{The next slide scrolls down with "Pree-ow" playing. A guy has The Paper taped on his face and is standing behind a computer monitor with a Tandy 400 background reading "a> Pretend this computer is 30 years old." The next slide shows a guy dressed as David Byrne and a woman dressed as The Log Lady. They are sitting on a table with candles and a picture of a plant on it, while the guy holds his hands up and his eyes closed.}

STRONG BAD: So wait, you didn't actually dress up as Strong Sad or Marzipan, you dressed up as the {a still showing Strong and Marzipan from 3 Times Halloween Funjob appear on the bottom right} people they are dressed up as one time, and then painstakingly {the images move up to the slide, scales to match the propositions and becomes translucent} recreated the scene in which they appeared. Well, that sounds exactly like the kinda nerdy thing those two losers would be into anyways. {the comparison fades away} So good job.

{The next slide shows a person dressed up as motion-capture Strong Bad from Sample of Style Too}

STRONG BAD: Nothing like dressing up as an obscure Internet cartoon's even more obscure DVD bonus feature. {An image of motion-capture Strong Bad appears on the left side.} Mo-Cap Strong Bad, more like "Mowed-Down Strong Bad"! {Bubs's baloney truck runs into the picture of Mo-Cap Strong Bad and knocks it out of view} 'Cause it's a very— there's a lot of black in the costume. Might be hard to see.

{The next slide shows a guy wearing a giant light brown pillow over his head, making it resemble a beam. He's sitting on a chair with a travel case next to him.}

STRONG BAD: Finally, Large Bean is getting the respect he deserves!

{The next frame shows the same character, with a cardboard bean on the person's face. The background is dark and blurred.}

STRONG BAD: Hey! No fair blurring out the rest of the living room! How am I supposed to make fun of your parents' terrible taste in decor?

{The next frame shows a boy in a Homsar costume}

STRONG BAD: Aaa-oooo-aaaahhh! I'm a tall kitty in a pumpkin bag! {zoom in the kitty dressed decor in the background} Or, {zoom back out} don't froth up, {zoom in on the unplugged appliance in the background} I unplugged the papasan! Man! Middle America's houses {zoom back out} are rife with Homsar quotes!

{The next frame shows a guy dressed as Old-Timey Strong Bad next to a sign. The image is in a sepia tone/}

OLD-TIMEY STRONG BAD: Yes, feast your depression-era eyes on Strong Bad's Flavor Taste {zoom in on the sign} Tricks and Treats! A spoonful of bakinged soda one could mistaken for sugar and some molasses bequeathed to me by a goat, upon its untimely demise! {zooms back out} Strong Bad is your number one candym'n!
