Transcript

COACH Z: Oh jeez, I don't know. I think I prefer his work with the Furious 5 much more. He had more street cred back then.

HOMESTAR: {Homestar walks by, continues throughout scene} Hey, thanks for coming to my party guys. Ahh, Coach Z is down with the PE! {Coach Z dances to Homestar's second remark.}

{Switch to Strong Bad, Strong Mad and The Cheat.}

STRONG BAD: ...ya know, I think it turned out pretty good. I mean Mom helped me do the fruit {gestures to hat}, and I did the sewing—

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, lookin' good Strong Bad. The Chiquita Banana lady. That's great!

STRONG BAD: Oooh, Chiquita Ba—for the last time, I'm Carmen freakin' Miranda!

{Switch to Marzipan, Strong Sad, Pom Pom and The Poopsmith, who is bobbing for pumpkins. He picks up a pumpkin and spits it into the bucket twice.}

MARZIPAN: Yesterday, I was out in the garden, and I was weeding, and there was this little worm...

HOMESTAR: Aww, everybody looks so great! {stops walking} You know, there's more punch over there, if anybody... wants any... All riiiiiight, everybody! Line up! {holds up flashlight} We're gonna play {clicks flashlight on and off} Flashlight Ghost Storytelling with a Flashliiight! {thunder booms, loud organ sting}

MARZIPAN: We should stand boy-girl-boy-girl! {thunder booms, organ sting}

HOMESTAR: Good one, Marzipan! That way we know it's fair!

MARZIPAN: I get to stand next to you, Homestar!

HOMESTAR: Nope! I'm standin' next to Bubs! You get to stand next to Strong Baaad. {walks away}

MARZIPAN: {gasps} Uh!

STRONG BAD: Psst! Hey Marzipan, is my slip showing?

HOMESTAR: Okay! Okay! Okay! I'll go first. (a circle forms around him so his picture is now an inset of a new scene) Umm... Okay! Once, there was this green gobliiiin... {a goblin appears} and um, he used to... look aroooound... {the goblin looks around} And um, I guess he did a daaance. {the goblin dances} Oh man, that was terrible... {passes flashlight to Bubs}

BUBS: And the goblin, he had a Gremlin! And he jacked it up on some fat tires, and uh, he tuned it up on some 4.11 positrak outback 750 double pumper edelbrock intake 4 over 30 11-to-1 pop-up pistons turbo jets 390 horsepower—I mean, he had some freakin' muscle! {passes to Pom Pom}

POM POM: {bubbling noises} {a blonde girl in a pink bikini with a Pom head appears next to the Gremlin} {bubbling noises} {redhead with a blue bikini} {bubbling noises} {brunette, leopard} {bubbling noises} {beer and sports paraphernalia appear} {passes to Marzipan.}

MARZIPAN: And, one of the girls had a cute little kitten named Kitty-kitty. {A cat appears beside the girl on the left.} The other girl had a cute little puppy named Chris. {A dog appears beside the girl on the right.} And, the third girl was a Republican. {A picket sign appears in the hand of the girl on the Gremlin.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, brother! Gimme that! {snatches flashlight} So then the robot came {The Visor Robot appears onscreen, to the right.} and he started vaporizing everybody with his vapor-sound! {Robot begins doing just that} And he was like "You take this, and you'd better, you, and you take this, everybody's gonna die!" And he was like "Oh, it's the Gremlin! I hate you, Goblin's Gremlin! DIE!" {The Robot picks up the Gremlin and heaves it across the place where it is not visible anymore.} I need to get some more punch. {passes to the King of Town and walks off}

THE KING OF TOWN: Oooh, oooh! {The Visor Robot and Goblin stand across from each other and all the food appears that the KOT mentions in between them.} And there was fried fish and heavenly ham and Salisbury sundaes and globs of meringue and strawberry frosted donuts and bowls full of jelly and Klondike pudding and scrumptious fillers... and—DOO! DOO-HOO-HOO-HOO-HOO! {All the food inexplicably disappears. The King passes the flashlight to Strong Sad and hurries off.}

STRONG SAD: And so it turns out that the Robot had a human brain which was stolen from a kindly old man. And the children of the old man came up to the Robot looking for their father, and they called out to him. {Speech bubble with an exclamation point in it appears on the girl.} The Robot's human brain then remembered his children and his stolen life, and he was moved to tears. {Robot starts to cry.} But the tears shorted out his circuits, and fried his brain. {Electric volts appear on the robot's head} And the Robot toppled over, and he crushed his children, and the Goblin, too. {Robot falls on them and his brain comes out.} And none of them lived.

{cut to Bubs, Coach Z, and The King of Town crying.}

COACH Z: {crying} Oh, jeese, what a total downer! {they walk away, still crying}

STRONG BAD: Oh man! I am outta here!

MARZIPAN: {crying} That's the saddest story I've ever heard! You can't come to next year's party. {walks away, while The Poopsmith sighs deeply and also walks away}

HOMESTAR: {sadly} Gee...thanks for coming to my party, Strong Sad. {sighs, walks away.}

{Everyone except Strong Sad leaves, and crickets start chirping. An owl hoots and a far-off dog howls. Strong Sad clicks the flashlight on and off a few times, then the screen fades.}

Fun Facts

Trivia

  • This is the first cartoon where any of the characters admit ever having a mom, when Strong Bad admits that his mom helped him with his costume. If you want to get really technical, though, the short-lived Yearbook Character Page was actually the first admission of parental leadership.
  • With nine deaths, this cartoon has a higher body count than any other cartoon on the website, including Teen Girl Squad.
  • This is the only time we've seen Coach Z with a full complement of fingers.
  • Marzipan suggests they should line up boy-girl-boy-girl. She is the only girl, making this difficult. Strong Bad crossdressing could make him considered a girl, but if so he shouldn't stand next to Marzipan.
  • Strong Mad, The Cheat, The Poopsmith, and Coach Z never contributed to the ghost story, but the Poopsmith probably doesn't contribute to the story on purpose, courtesy of his vow of silence.
  • This toon was "Written, drawn, and directed by Matt, Mike, and Craig". This is most likely Craig Zobel.
  • According to Strong Bad is in Jail Cartoon, the spooky trees in the background are just next to Bubs' Concession Stand.

Goofs

  • The birthmark on Strong Sad as Gorbachev is on the wrong side of his head.
  • When Homestar turns the flashlight on and off for Flashlight Ghost Storytelling with a Flashlight, his face isn't illuminated any better, so much as the rest of his body is cast into shadow.
  • When Strong Sad turns the flash light on & off at the end, his hands didn't move.

Inside References

Real World References

  • Bubs' description of the Gremlin is quoted directly from the movie Dazed And Confused.
  • The flux capacitor visible on the Gremlin is a reference to the Back to the Future movies.
  • Strong Sad turning the flashlight on and off is possibly an homage to the movie Shallow Grave, in which Christopher Eccleston's character turns a flashlight on and off into his face while spiralling into insanity.
  • Homestar's shirt says "corporate rock still sucks", a reference to the famous Rolling Stone cover where Cobain wore a shirt saying "Corporate Magazines still suck". Also, his shoes look a lot like Converse, which Cobain allegedly made popular.
  • Homestar's line "Coach Z is down with the PE" is a reference to the Public Enemy song "Burn Hollywood Burn", wherein guest-rapper Ice Cube raps "Ice Cube is down with the PE".
    • This could be a play on words; PE could also stand for physical education, as Coach Z is indeed a coach.

Fast Forward

  • Marzipan's line, "You can't come to next year's party," was revisited in The House That Gave Sucky Treats, when Marzipan said, "I like your costume, Strong Sad, but you weren't invited this year."
  • The music that was used for the Flashlight Ghost Storytelling Using a Flashlight was used again in The House That Gave Sucky Treats and the Strong Bad e-mail theme park during "Strong Sad's Stunt Spooktacular".
  • A slight variation of Homestar's "Corporate Rock Still Sucks" shirt was worn by Strong Sad in geddup noise, which said "Corporate The Geddup Noise Still Sucks".
