"I'm gonna have to ask you to leave my parent's basement now."

The location of someone's parents' basement has been mentioned in a several cartoons. The phrase is typically used by Strong Bad as a means to ridicule other people, suggesting a lack of personal or professional success. Sometimes the phrase is used in a singular possessive case ("parent's" with the apostrophe before the s), implying that there is only one parent in possession of the basement.

The Brothers Chaps have used the phrase as well in interviews. Prior to February 2003, when they began working with a fulfillment company, distribution of Homestar Runner merchandise was done out of the Chapman parents' basement; the brothers have repeatedly emphasized that they never lived in said basement, as the running gag had led some fans to believe.
