Page Title: Here Comes Sickness!



{We are presented with a silent view of the Lappy, Strong Bad apparently absent, and the following email is on the screen.}

{Cut to a view of Strong Bad's desk. Strong Bad is severely ill and curled up into a ball under the table, coughing and shivering. A box of tissues that reads "Tish You!", lies next to him along with a mess of used up tissues. }

STRONG BAD: {coughing} The Cheat! Get in here with my puke pail. {coughing} And bring me some tissues. Lots more tissues!

{Homestar walks in from the right of the screen with a thermometer in his mouth and an obvious look of sickness}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Strong Bad, my burps smell really bad. Check this out. {making breathing noises} Hang on.

STRONG BAD: Ugh. Go away. I can't smell anything anyways.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, I'm betting you can smell these!

STRONG BAD: Yeah, well you're lucky it's your burps that smell. DO NOT go into Strong Mad's room. Or, as I've taken to calling it, Rotten Egglünd.

{Cut to outside Strong Mad's room. The door is covered with police tape that reads "Quarantine!". There is a green haze coming out from the bottom of the door.}


{Cut back to Strong Bad and Homestar in the Computer Room.}

STRONG BAD: Ugh. The Cheat! What's taking so long with my tissues?

THE CHEAT: {in a green bucket that reads "Puke Pail for Him!"} (crying noises)

STRONG BAD: {coughing} Oh well. I guess I'll just re-use some of these already re-reused ones. {grabs a tissue} Ow! They're pointy now!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Strong Bad, I don't think you're going to be able to answer your word problem this week. So I'll take one for the team. Two trains enter a tunnel going four miles per hour. {As he talks, pictures of two trains, a tunnel, and the number 4 appear to his left.} At what time do they reach Poughkeepsie?

STRONG BAD: {groans and coughs while speaking} The Paapeeeer!

{The Paper comes down, with a distorted noise. It appears crinkled and says "Strong Bad, I can't come in today".}

STRONG BAD: Oh no, not you too! Can I blow my nose on you?

{The Paper goes back up.}

Rotten Egglünd

Fun Facts


  • Homestar has the wrong end of the thermometer in his mouth. The side with the bulb measures temperature.


Armless Strong Bad
  • The bags under Strong Bad's eyes disappear shortly after his remark about Strong Mad's room, although they reappear later.
  • When Strong Bad's eye bags disappear, the tint of his face changes.
  • When Strong Bad reaches out for a tissue, he has no arm connecting to his glove.
    • This happens again when he hurts himself on the pointy tissue.
    • His arm usually wouldn't be able to stretch far enough to reach the tissue.
  • When we zoom in to Homestar answering the "word problem," the desk behind him disappears and the shading changes. When we zoom out, the designs on the wall move.

Real-World References

  • "Here Comes Sickness" is a song by Mudhoney.
