Transcript

{The first scene shows a cartoony man watching TV.}

NARRATOR: Say there, husband of the year! What are you doing just sitting around?

{The man sighs.}

NARRATOR: When you could be sitting around huge savings at the Senorial Day Tent Event Supra Sale!!! {The last six words are printed across the screen, and "Supra Sale" is echoed.}

{Balloons cross the screen, transitioning to The Field. Senor Cardgage is standing there in front of a small awning over a shrub.}

SENOR CARDGAGE: Gamble around the campfire, children! It's Senor Cardgage with the Senorial Day Tent thing that guy talked about.

{Scene shifts to Senor Cardgage in front of the Gremlin.}

SENOR CARDGAGE: Don't be here forever. So come see me {camera pans down to reveal the Wagon Fulla Pancakes at Senor Cardgage's feet} and this little dog {indicating the wagon} for vera low prices!! {"VERA LOW PRICES!!" flashes on the screen.}

{The screen shifts to a blue screen with "Tent Event" printed all over it. As the narrator names off the following years, the numbers fly across the screen.}

NARRATOR: 2005! 2004! 1999!

{Scene shifts back to the awning and the shrub.}

SENOR CARDGAGE: Those were all good years. Don't let another minute go you by!

{The screen turns to static for a moment as the channels apparently change, and we now see Bubs at his concession stand.}

BUBS: Hey there, every peoples! Come check out my circumstance this Senorial Day Weekend for Bubsotathon!!

{The screen pans out, and we can see a banner reading "BUBSOTATHON!!" above the concession stand. Two Homestar Runners can be seen, one on each side of the stand and barely offscreen. Both throw confetti.}

LEFT HOMESTAR RUNNER: {various explosion-like sound effects} Explosions fireworks!

{Cut to Strong Badia. Bubs is standing next to the Stop Sign and the Tire. The Tire has been painted to read "LOW SAVINGS".}

BUBS: {holding up the Tire} We're so tired of low savings, we're givin' 'em this boot! {He pulls a 'Lectric Boot out from behind his back and hits the tire with it. An unseen audience groans. Bubs throws both props over his shoulder.} Would I lie to my own flesh and blood?

{Homestar walks in from stage right, with false Bubs teeth drawn on his jaw in marker and a paper ring taped over his left eye.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: That's right, papa daddy!

{The Tire and the Boot are seen falling behind the fence. The Bear-Shark pops up as they land. The channel changes back to Senor Cardgage, back in front of the Gremlin. Strong Bad walks up from stage right with a football in hand.}

STRONG BAD: Yes, excuse me, sir. Can I have some tremendous savings? And your autograph? {holds up the ball}

SENOR CARDGAGE: {writing on the football with a marker} My left name is tremendous savings, Miss America! {grabs the football and winds up to throw it} Go out for a pass!

STRONG BAD: {smiling} You bet! Hit me on the slant! {runs offscreen}

{Senor Cardgage pauses for a moment, then drops his arm, still holding the football.}

SENOR CARDGAGE: Bring on down your whole fambily! We'll set up some tents {an image of a tent hovers on the left side of the screen} and hot dogs {an image of a hot dog hovers on the right} for your... babies. {scratching his head} Those like those, right?

{Channel changes back to Bubs, who is back at his concession stand. He's wearing a baby bonnet and holding a rattle.}

BUBS: We're going ga-ga over slashed prices! {As he says this, the rattle gains a blade and the word "PRICES" appears at the bottom of the screen. He slashes "PRICES" in two with the blade. The audience groans. Bubs ducks down, then returns with a wig and a tennis racket.} Our competition is a total racket! {Audience groans. Bubs ducks down again and returns with a bean bag that looks vaguely like Strong Sad's head on a plate.} We're getting ahead of the rest. {Audience groans. Bubs now switches the plate for a giant frog mask.} I'm the hoppity-frog of values! {Audience says "Huh?" in unison. Bubs switches props to a rubber chicken.} We're holding up a novelty rubber chicken and playing a cartoony sound effect {He raises his left hand to cue a pair of cartoony "boing" sound effects} of savings!

{Channel changes back to Senor Cardgage, who is back in front of the awning and shrub.}

SENOR CARDGAGE: You doe NOT want to miss {"DOE NOT MISS OUT" appears at the bottom of the screen.} any Senorial Day savings action!

{Cut to an alley, where Senor Cardgage is sleeping in an orange sleeping bag, using his Aldi bag as a pillow. A box labelled "UNLABELED BOX" can be seen to the left. "FILE FOOTAGE" is at the bottom of the screen. Senor Cardgage snores loudly as cars honk their horns in the background. Cut to the Gremlin, where Senor Cardgage is still holding Strong Bad's football.}

SENOR CARDGAGE: Wake up! Senorial Day is here with a vengeance!

{Strong Bad returns.}

STRONG BAD: Uh, Mister Senor, sir? Can I have my football back?

SENOR CARDGAGE: You bet! How 'bout I hitcha on the slant?

{Senor Cardgage winds up to throw the ball, and Strong Bad runs off again. After a moment's pause, Senor Cardgage again drops his arm, still holding the football. He then walks off, stage left. We cut to Strong Bad, still running in the other direction.}

STRONG BAD: I'm gonna get me a touchdown!

{Channel changes back to Bubs.}

BUBS: So come down around my Bubba concession stand... mubbah... my cassette... Ah! {the music cuts out abruptly} I even wrote this stuff and I can't remember my own lins!

{Another Bubs wearing devil horns and carrying a pitchfork rips open the screen.}

DEVIL BUBS: So come on by for Bubsotathon {The banner from earlier comes up from the bottom of the screen.} where you'll save like a demon, or my name ain't {holds up a "VERY OFFICIAL IDENTIFICATION CARD"} Bubs Concession Stand!

{The channel changes to a brown fence and ID cards that read "BACK" and "AGAIN".}

Easter Eggs

  • When Senor Cardgage holds up Strong Bad's football the first time, click on the football to see that Senor Cardgage wrote (in very scrawly handwriting): "This pen doesn't work, small girl T. Mendous Savings"
  • At the very end, click the skinny board on the fence just to the left of the "AGAIN" card.
{The scene is The Field at night. Strong Sad walks on from stage left.}
STRONG SAD: Oh, there's nothing like going out for a lonely lurk on a lovely Spring night.
{Strong Bad's football flies by and hits Strong Sad in the head, knocking him over.}
STRONG SAD: AUGH! Somebody hit me on the slant!

Fun Facts

Trivia

  • This is the first time we learn Bubs's full name, which is apparently "Bubs Concession Stand."
  • Bubs's card reads:
VERY OFFICIAL
IDENTIFICATION CARD
BUBS C. STAND
Entrepreneur
FREE COUNTRY USA
CLASS
F                "I don't look half bad!"
                                  - Bubs
  • His card is apparently suspended.
  • If the file is viewed in .swf format, then in the scene with two Homestars, you can see that the Homestar on the right has a moustache.

Remarks

  • Notice that when Strong Bad says "Mister Senor, sir," he is saying three different synonyms of the same word in a row (assuming we substitute "Señor for Senor.)

Inside References

Real-World References

  • senor Cardgage calls Strong Bad "Miss America," which is a title given in a popular annual beauty pageant.
  • Bubs's "Bubsotathon" has a strikingly similar name to Toyota's "Toyotathon".
