NARRATOR STRONG BAD: TEEN GIRL SQUAD: TENTHENNIAL EXTRAVAGANZA! In 24 Great-Smelling Colors! Cheerleader! {groovy grapefruit pink} So-and-so! {viscious violent violet} What's Her Face! {radacious bodadical razberry blue!} The Ugly One! {gnarly nursing home green}

{we open up to a school lunch table}

CHEERLEADER: Lunchtime gals. Now let's get ready to eat...

CHEERLEADER, SO-AND-SO, WHAT'S HER FACE: NO FOOD!

SO-AND-SO: Eating lunch is for weirdos.

{The Ugly One walks on to the screen, with a tray of cafeteria food in her hand.}

THE UGLY ONE: Holla grlfrndz. It's Corn and Corn Alone Day! {The Ugly One places a plate of corn on the table. Cut to a close-up of the corn. A tiny samurai warrior carrying a naginata jumps out of the corn.}

WARRIOR: Corn is no place for a mighty warrior!

THE UGLY ONE: So... who wants to come to my sweet someteen birthday bash tonight?

WHAT'S HER FACE: Is it going to be Nick-at-Night themed again?

SO-AND-SO: {slaps her forehead} I don't think I can stomach another show not on the WB.

CHEERLEADER: No! We can't come. We have... the... olympics... tonight!

THE UGLY ONE: Oh, cuz it's a boy/girl party...

{close up of So-And-So and Cheerleader, who look rather insane.}

CHEERLEADER, SO-AND-SO: a B'GRL PRTY??!?

WHAT'S HER FACE: Taking the vowels out of words doesn't always make them cool.

SO AND SO: 'm srry.

CHEERLEADER: {holding up a cellphone, from which the message "the olympics are sooooo dumb!" is coming} So, coach just called and said the olympics are dumb. We'll be there like shareware!

{Cut to a track with the banner "OLYMPIC RACE." A small man labeled "coach" is standing next to a rather angry-looking burly man labeled "olympic man."}

COACH: I don't know what they're talking about, I swear!

{Cut again to the Teen Girl Squad}

CHEERLEADER: Now, more than ever before, let's get ready to look....

CHEERLEADER, SO-AND-SO, WHAT'S HER FACE, THE UGLY ONE: SO GOOOD! {the camera does a 360-degree spin around the girls}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Whoa! That was about the coolest thing ever! We gotta see that again. {the cartoon rewinds and replays the 360-spin. At the end, however, What's Her Face is still spinning.} Uh-oh. We got a spinner.

WHAT'S HER FACE: Wheeeee! {the word slides to the right across the text bubble}

{a title slide entitled "AT THE PARTY" (imprinted on a cigarette, which a man is smoking) appears. We cut to the boy/girl party. Various characters from previous TGS episodes are attending. We pan right to reveal the TGS. What's Her Face is still spinning.}

CHEERLEADER: Alright, wallflowers, watch a professional at work... I'm fit to get makey outey all over those uppaclassmen.

{cut to three Scots, drinking beer.}

SCOT #1: ACHGH!

SCOT #2: ACHGH!

SCOT #3: ACHGH!

{Cheerleader walks in.}

CHEERLEADER: Any o'you boys wanna ditch this preschool party? I know of a couple HAWT junior college jams we could hit. {one of the Scots throws Cheerleader away from them.}

STRONG BAD: CABER TOSSED!! {cut to a spinning What's Her Face.}

WHAT'S HER FACE: I really want... some of these chips. {Dead Cheerleader falls at the feet of What's Her Face.}

NARRATOR STRONG BAD: Tonk! Ponk!

SCOT: {off-screen} BAGH! Only 23 metres! {we cut to the bowl of chips. The warrior jumps out of the chips.}

WARRIOR: Corn chips are no place for a mighty warrior! {the samurai's naginata digs into What's-Her-Face as she rotates, and the upper half of What's-Her-Face's body falls off.}

NARRATOR STRONG BAD: {grinding sound} LATHE'D!

WHAT'S HER FACE: Oww! I hope they have those corn chips in heaven!

{cut to So-And-So and Tompkins, playing a Gameboy.}

SO-AND-SO: Say, Tompkins, Brett Bretterson and I are Splitsville, so I'm lookin for a little rebound action!

TOMPKINS: Hecks no! I got Bowser on the ropes!

{A Koopa shell comes out of the Gameboy and strikes So-And-So in the face.}

NARRATOR STRONG BAD: {the word "pØwned!!" appears} Puh-owned! Or however you say that...

{we cut to The Ugly One's Father, standing at a microphone, speaking to the party crowd.}

MANOLIOS UGLY ONE: OK, party people, get ready to give it up for my little girl on her sweet someteenth birthday... and remember, if you're looking for low prices on used and broken electronics, don't forget... Manolios Ugly One's Lectro-Pawn!

TOMPKINS: {offscreen} p4wned! {said "peh-awned"}

MANOLIOS UGLY ONE: And here she is... THE UGLY ONE!

{cut to the ugly one, wearing a red dress and much more attractive than before. The music is ended with the scratching of a record.}

STRONG BAD: Whoa! Did I draw that new hotness?

THE UGLY ONE: Thanks for coming to my party everyone! Now let's get it on like Diddy Kong!

{all people at the party, including The Ugly One, begin dancing.}

STRONG BAD: ARROWED II! ELECTRIC- {Arrow'd Guy appears on the screen, wearing a tuxedo, holding a wedding ring in his hand, and with spikes on his back. He has a bad case of razor burn, and what appears to be a mound of corn in his breast pocket.} Wait a minute! Not this time, Mister! {Strong Bad places a new piece of paper on the screen, containing The Ugly One and a muscular Strong Bad in a construction helmet. In the background are the are the Great Sphinx of Giza and two pyramids.} Oh, why, hello, The Ugly One, you're looking so makey outey tonight.

THE UGLY ONE: Why thank you Sir Hotbod Handsomeface. So are you! {Strong Bad and The Ugly One start making out. We cut to Strong Bad at his desk, making out with the paper of The Ugly One. Zoom out to a broader view of the desk, revealing Strong Mad, Strong Sad, and The Cheat standing next to him, looking bewildered.}

STRONG BAD: Oh...mmm, not bad...oh, twice...

STRONG MAD: Oh?

STRONG SAD: Uh...

THE CHEAT: {cheat noises}

{Strong Bad notices them, and quickly hides the paper.}

STRONG BAD: Oh! Uh, this is a piece of uh... pizzaaaaa... {Strong Bad shoves most of the paper into his mouth.}

{cut to a crumpled & salivated paper, with the "IT'S OVER" screen appearing on the paper. A faint outline of the making-out scene is visible.}

STRONG BAD: {slightly muffled} IT'S OVER!

STRONG SAD: {off-screen} Uh, Strong Bad, were you just first-basin' it with that piece of loose-leaf?!

Easter Eggs

    MANOLIOS UGLY ONE: So okay, guys. Come down and be shopping at Manolios Ugly One's Lectro-pawn! {"come down and see us" flashes on the screen.} I have a price on broken VCR, smashed tape, or something like that. I'll be over here yelling, Manolios Lectro-pawn! {he appears upside-down from the top of the screen} Manolios Lectro-pawn! Or something like that.

    NARRATOR STRONG BAD: Okay! {Cheerleader's head is turned upside-down, but with one ponytail still coming out of the "top" of her head, with the other ponytail on her backside and her arms and legs swapped. So and So is squished by a giant golf ball. The Ugly One is eaten by a carnivorous plant. What's Her Face has a lampshade over her head.}

Fun Facts

Explanations

  • "pØwned" and "p4wned" are variations of the Internet slang, "pwned."
  • The Caber toss is a traditional Scottish sport, usually involving a log of specific weight. However, the remark "BAGH! Only 23 metres!" does not apply to the sport, for distance does not matter, but how straight the throw is when it lands on the ground or the amount of rotations in the air.
  • A lathe is a tool used to create objects with rotational symmetry such as table legs. It works by rotating the subject while a cutting or smoothing tool is applied, evenly removing material around its circumference.
  • Clip shows, weddings, new babies, and characters getting killed off are staples of anniversary episodes and are generally considered signs of a TV show jumping the shark. Such episodes also reprise characters and themes from the show as a whole (this issue features a great number of minor characters from previous issues).
  • The "Sweet Someteen" birthday is a reference to Sweet Sixteen (or Sweet Fifteen in many Spanish cultures), the only "sweet" birthdays.

Remarks

  • This cartoon uses a faster animation speed than any of the other ones before due to the 3-D sequence.
  • Cheerleader and So And So leave the vowel Y in their words during the vowel-less scene.
  • This toon has more characters in it than any other toon to date.

Goofs

  • When you zoom in on the paper with "ARROWED II!" on it near the end, it just says "ARROWED"
  • When Strong Bad rewinds the 3-D spin around, the "SO GOOD!" speech bubble disappears.
  • In the Easter Egg, when Manolios Ugly One is waving his arms around, a gap opens and closes repeatedly in his beard.
  • When Manolios says "Let's give it up...", his speech bubble says "Let's give up..."

Inside References

Real-World References

  • The WB and Nick at Nite (usually spelled as such) are both references to TV channels, WB network and Nickelodeon.
  • Diddy Kong is a character that originated in Donkey Kong Country.
  • Bowser is the main villain in the Super Mario series of video games. He is the king of the Koopas, and a red Koopa shell is what hits So and So.
    • Tompkins is playing it on the original 1989 model Game Boy.
  • "ARROWED II! Electric..." is a reference to the movie Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo, which has become a popular joke about facetious follow-ups to popular films.
  • The "spinner" gag refers to CGI animation glitches, such as when certain objects fail to stop moving. (examples can be seen in the special features of such films).
