Look at Yard

While under house arrest

An effigy of the King of Town stands in front of them, consisting of a white globe mounted on a short pole in the ground bearing the sign "King of Town". A pile of Creamy Dings lies at the base}
STRONG BAD: What are you guys doing here? Can't you see I've got enough troubles? I'm a political prisoner!
MARZIPAN: {holding her guitar, Carol} That's why we're here, Strong Bad. This is a peaceful protest rally.
STRONG BAD: Peaceful?!
COACH Z: {holding a sign which reads "KOT = JRK"} No taxin' without representin'!
HOMESTAR RUNNER: Save the bats!
MARZIPAN: I ven wrote you a protest song! {plays the guitar and sings} C'mon everybody now, can't you hear the wind blow? We don't like the King of Town makin' people's heads explode.
STRONG BAD: Ahh! Cruel and unusual!
After escaping from house arrest
STRONG BAD: At least it's finally quiet out there, and relatively stank-free.


STRONG BAD: I can't unplug the Lappy. It takes five to seven business days to fully charge the battery. Lappy don't charge on weekends.

{Camera zooms in and out, light effects and sound clip from techno play}
STRONG BAD: {robotically} I didn't prepare myself.


STRONG BAD: I really gotta update that sign with something more forceful... but, eh, that sounds like too much work.


STRONG BAD: Ah, my trusty steed. Stooly, I'd ride you into email battle any day.


Dead Plant

STRONG BAD: {zoom in on Charlemagne} Strong Sad's suicidal houseplant. If only we had read his journal, we might have seen the signs...

Lighter → Dead Plant

STRONG BAD: I can't cremate Charlemagne! His license says he's an organ donor.


STRONG BAD: {zoom in on Strong Bad opening the fridge} I love how the fridge smells like rotting vegetables, when there's never been a vegetable in it. {closes the fridge}


STRONG BAD: {finds the eye patch}

STRONG BAD: {zoom in on the cereal box} Cheat Commandos-Os are a delicious part of this ridiculous breakfast.

Laundry Room


First time only
STRONG BAD: {finds camouflage pants} I knew if I ran them in the dryer a few hundred times, they'd shrink down to my size.

STRONG BAD: The emperor's new clothes just need to tumble dry. Then I can put them on.


STRONG BAD: Those are pennants from various academic institutions, unaccredited and discredited alike.


STRONG BAD: A big fat pillow filled with big fat dust mites. {takes pillow}.


STRONG BAD: The key to surviving in prison is to not hang out in the laundry room for too long. Or Shiv City, as I like to call it.

{The first time Strong Bad walks over the carpet only}
STRONG BAD: Few can withstand the otherwordly horror of Ugrug: the world's ugliest rug.

Smoke Detector

Lighter → Smoke Detector

STRONG BAD: {sets fire to the smoke detector}

STRONG BAD: {zoom in on the burning smoke detector} To be fair, that fire's not actually smoking.


STRONG BAD: {zoom in on the window} Aw, man. Of all the weeks I could've picked to install steel bars on all the ground floor windows. At least it stopped Strong Mad's sleepwalking.

Lighter → Window

{First time only}

STRONG BAD: {receives Teen Girl Squad idea}

Plaque (Horse)

STRONG BAD: How come none of the Dutch Masters ever worked in the medium of wood-burny-on-tree-slice?

Plaque (Dog)

STRONG BAD: {Walks back and forth, watching the plaque} I don't like the way that hush puppy's eyes follow me when I walk around.

Looking at Yard

Invisible Fence

STRONG BAD: {cut to view of fence blocking front door} I'm a-gonna have to get rid of that fence before I become a sickly pale shut-in like Strong Sad.
STRONG SAD: {opens the front door} Pallor to the people! {closes door}

King of Town effigy

{close view of the base of the effigy, surrounded by Creamy Dings, slow pan up, revealing a plain pole bearing the sign "King of Town" and a plain white styrofoam sphere on top}
STRONG BAD: {sarcastically} Wow, Marzipan, you've outdone yourself this time. You really nailed the eyes. It's like I'm staring into the King's beer-battered soul.

Couch Stuffing → Effigy

STRONG BAD: The King's ridiculous-looking beard that's supposed to hide his lack of jawline: Check.
The following dialogue occurs after the first inventory item is used on the effigy, regardless of order
STRONG BAD: Hey, The Cheat, what's red and fat and smells like rancid meatloaf?
THE CHEAT: Mezeh meh?
STRONG BAD: No, the other thing!
THE CHEAT: Meh, meh!
{The Cheat runs towards the effigy (off-screen) and a banging noise is heard. Afterward, cut to the effigy showing the new item added}

Paper Crown → Effigy

STRONG BAD: Stupid crown that gets the King all up in my grill actin' like he owns the place or somethin': Check.
{The Cheat runs towards the effigy (off-screen) and a banging noise is heard. Afterward, cut to the effigy showing the new item added}

Pillow → Effigy

STRONG BAD: The King's morbid obesity: Check.
{The Cheat runs towards the effigy (off-screen) and a banging noise is heard. Afterward, cut to the effigy showing the new item added}

Red Towel → Effigy

STRONG BAD: Royal Robe in size "husky": Check.
{The Cheat runs towards the effigy (off-screen) and a banging noise is heard. Afterward, cut to the effigy showing the new item added}
The following dialogue occurs after the last of the inventory items is used on the effigy, regardless of order.
HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, hello King of Town!
COACH Z: It's him! That's the guy! Burn 'im up!
MARZIPAN: Oh well. Take him out, boys!
{cut to ground up view of The Cheat, Strong Mad, Homestar and Coach Z. The Cheat smiles, pulls out a lighter, lights it, and walks off screen towards the effigy. Cut to a wide shot of the effigy, which bursts into flames and disappears. The two ends of the invisible fence do the same in turn. Cut to a shot of Strong Bad through the window}
STRONG BAD: Sweet recently divorced lady freedom! {he removes the collar and holds it up in the air, it then bursts into flames and disappears} Onward to Strong Badia! Strong Badia, the Free!
HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, that's the name of thi—
STRONG BAD: Shut up!
{fade out. fade in on Strong Badia. Strong Bad and The Cheat stand before an audience of Homestar, Marzipan, Pom Pom, Strong Mad, Coach Z and Strong Sad}
STRONG BAD: Friends and losers, my long incarceration has taught me that we can never be truly free until we reject the fat-thority of The King of Town. Hencetoforthwith, I shall only refer to him as, "The of Town". As of today, Strong Badia is it's own independent nation!
{all gasp}
STRONG BAD: The Cheat, if you will...
{The Cheat is shown behind the fence, mashing play on a boom box, organ chords begin to play. Cut to Strong Bad, who stands in front of a Strong Badian flag which fills the whole view}
STRONG BAD: We should all live in a place where we are free! Free to pick our friends! Free to pick our noses! And most importantly, free to pick our friends' noses! {Strong Badian national anthem begins} That's why I, Strong Bad of the Might Tighty Whities, declare war on The of Town! Who's with me?! {blowing wind is heard, cut to a wide shot of Strong Badia, where now only Strong Bad and The Cheat remain} Where'd everybody go?
THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}
STRONG BAD: Seceded!? They can't do that! I'm the only one who gets his own country!


STRONG BAD: Hmm, I guess I could wait for an eviction notice. That would get me out of the house.


STRONG BAD: Man, ain't that always the way. The one day an interesting package comes in the mail, is the day you get put under house arrest for tax evasion.


Protestors → Fence

STRONG BAD: Are you losers gonna just stand around losing, or help me get past that fence?
HOMESTAR RUNNER: That would be illegal!
COACH Z: I can't go back to the joint again, man! I ain't goin'!
MARZIPAN: {zoom in on pile of Creamy Dings at the base of the effigy} We started a collection to help pay your back taxes. You're welcome!

STRONG BAD: Any ideas how I can break house arrest and get past that fence?
MARZIPAN: No, but I've got some great ideas for things you can do indoors. Build a birdhouse, make a rabbit lean-to, construct a beetle pagoda—
STRONG BAD: Any ideas don't involve me wanting to blow my brains out?
MARZIPAN: Hmm. Probably not.

STRONG BAD: {whiny} I'm never gonna get out of this house!
HOMESTAR RUNNER: Don't worry, we'll be here every day for you unil you're released, singing songs 'bout freedom and compression!
STRONG BAD: {camera slowly zooms out and up into the sky away from Strong Bad} Noooooo!

Protestors → Effigy

STRONG BAD: Why'd you bring that ugly, misshapen stick?
HOMESTAR RUNNER: She organized the protest rally!
STRONG BAD: Not Marzipan! {softly} Though that's a pretty good one, gotta remember that. {speaking normally} I'm talking 'bout that stick dangerously close to the invisible fence.
COACH Z: That's our orfigy of the King of Town! Er, arfigy. RPG. First person shooter!
STRONG BAD: Effigy? That looks nothing like the King of Town.
HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah, Marzipan made us take all that stuff off.
MARZIPAN: Right, Homestar. We're protesting the actions of the King of Town, not the man himself.
COACH Z: We was gonna burn it, but after lookin' at that pathetic thing, our hearts just ain't in it. We want to fry up the King of Town, not Stickball Jackson.

STRONG BAD: Shouldn't you all be putting a torch to that quote-unquote effigy?
COACH Z: Eh. It's just a stick. Can't really get into protestin' a simple stick.

Protestors → No King of Town

STRONG BAD: Man, this is so unfair. I gotta write an angry letter to my doughy congressman.
MARZIPAN: Didn't you see the warning message about the new e-mail tax?
STRONG BAD: {imitating Marzipan} No, I didn't see the warning message about the new e-mail tax. {speaking normally} All messages from the King of Town get intercepted with extreme prejudice by my idiot filter.
HOMESTAR RUNNER: But I sent you all kinds of reminder e-mails!
STRONG BAD: Idiot filter.
HOMESTAR RUNNER: But I sent you all kinds of reminder e-mails!
STRONG BAD: Idiot— nevermind.

STRONG BAD: My people, we can no longer suffer under the invisible boot of this power-mad tyrant. A call to arms! Who's with me?
STRONG MAD: {shakes his fist in the air} STRONG MAD!
COACH Z: {raises his hand} Me!
HOMESTAR RUNNER: {looks at his sides} I suppose you think you're really funny!


Strong Bad Emails

STRONG BAD: {singing} I don't know but I've been told, E-mail's best when it don't scroll!
{Strong Bad pronounces "dont" as dahnt and "youd" as ya-ood}
STRONG BAD: Well, Roytee, it goes without saying that I'd be a better ruler than the King of Town. {clears screen} But seriously, who wants that job? Stuck in a castle all day, stuck making dumb laws, probably stuck in the bathtub... no thanks, man. {cut to over the shoulder shot of Strong Bad} And the King of Town's mostly harmless. Sure he's stupid looking, {cut to drawing of the King of Town on a sheet of notebook paper, his Dumb Crown, Cheesy Beard, Stupid Red Robe and Fatness are labelled} as this scientific diagram illustrates, but he stays out of my business, and that lazy faire approach to government is a welcome alternative. {Strong Bad looks at the camera} Ooh, I think I'd like to the lazy fair.
THE KING OF TOWN: {standing in the doorway, theme music begins to play} Aha! Caught you red gloved-ed.
STRONG BAD: The King of Town?! How'd you get in here?
THE KING OF TOWN: In flagrant disregard of my new e-mail tax, eh? One Creamy Ding snack cake for every e-mail sent or received!
STRONG BAD: {cut to Strong Bad} E-mail tax?! {zoom in} Flagrant?! {zoom in} Creamy ... {zoom in} Ding?!
THE KING OF TOWN: Oh, so you refuse to pay? Poopsmith, administer the collar of obedience!
{The Poopsmith climbs in through the window, wearing the municipality armor and clubs Strong Bad off of Stooly to the floor}
STRONG BAD: What are you doing?! Hey, cut that out! {overlapping} Ow! My freedom!
THE KING OF TOWN: You are under house arrest. You have the right to bribe me. {cut to Strong Bad, who is now wearing a metal collar with a flashing red light} Anything you offer will be eaten by me whether cooked or raw. {cut to exterior shot of front door, showing a pulsating electronic security gate, bearing matching lights to Strong Bad's collar} Try walking past that fence downstairs, and blammo! Hope you weren't attached to that head. And one more thing, {The King of Town takes and eats Strong Bad's map from the previous game}
STRONG BAD: My map! I need that!
THE KING OF TOWN: This'll make sure you stay put until you can pay up! Now let's ride, Poopsmith! Gotta go collect on my new Pour-a-Bag-of-Jellybeans-Down-My-Gullet tax! {The King of Town exits. The Poopsmith follows, crouching behind his shield and walking backwards out of the room}
STRONG BAD: House arrest? Aw man, this is the worse thing to happen to my style in a long line of bad things happening to my style. I gotta find a way outta here, and give that uncharacteristically oppresive King of Town a serious mustache pounding.

Strong Bad's Room

Trophy Case

First time only
STRONG BAD: My crown from Blubb-O's. {takes crown} Why did they ever stop making the Jalapeno 'n' King Snake Meat Double Deluxe? Why?!

STRONG BAD: This is where I usually keep all my trophies and awards, but, uh... they're all out a ceremony right now, getting trophies for being such good awards.

Videlectrix Poster

STRONG BAD: Ahh! My wall is exploding with video games! Nyaow! Nyaow! Nyaow!

Dangeresque 3 Poster

STRONG BAD: I probably could have finished Dangeresque 3 by now if I hadn't spent so much time working on that teaser poster. Pretty good likeness of the leading man, though. Well hello, Mister Hot-... I'm gonna stop hitting on myself.

Drawing Table

STRONG BAD: Aww, man. I wish I hadn't used up all of my paper drawing that scientifically accurate picture of the King of Town. I guess the next issue of Teen Girl Squad will have to wait.

Strong Sad's Room

Strong Sad

When Strong Bad walks near, first time only
STRONG SAD: If you're going to beat me up, make it quick. I've got a full agenda today.
