Transcript

{Also sprach Zarathustra plays. The text "Hey" appears onscreen. It fades away, and "Did you miss us?" appears. The text fades and the music intensifies. "Let's" fades in, and "do this..." fades through it. The text "W00tsock 5.0" appears. The screen fades to a red fez, and pans out to reveal Strong Bad. "Please welcome" and "Strong Bad" appear over his head. The music finishes.}

STRONG BAD: Hello, my name is Strong Bad, and I'm from 2002. Ask your parents. They asked me to come out here and introduce you to W-Zero-Zero-t-stock to lay down some ground rules to keep you nerds in line. First of all, I would like every male wearing a fedora to punch themselves in the face. Those things were never cool and never looked good on you. Uh, also I noticed all of you steampunk people out there. Look, I really appreciate all the time and craftsmanship that goes into those costumes, and those cool ray guns you've got, but look. There's a lot of machines missing gears out there right now. Poor, defenseless machines with no gears. For Pete's sake, put 'em back, steampunkers. Alright, now, browncoats , in the crowd, where my browncoats at? Oh, browncoats, listen up. Your Firebug show is never ever coming back. Just calm down. Pretty sure that show Castle is the spiritual sequel. Oh yeah, this one isn't so much a rule as it is a question: can anybody explain Homestuck to me?

{Homestar appears onscreen, also wearing a Fez.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, Strong Bad, watcha doing?

STRONG BAD: Shut up, I'm just talking to the nerds here.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ooh, I'm a nerd. Check me out, I've even got my smartphone.

STRONG BAD: You don't have any — there's nothing smart about you! What kind of smartphone do you have?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I've got... a Palm Pilot and... a Blackberry and... a Zooooooom... player? I've got {unintelligible} class.

STRONG BAD: Alright, go away Homestuck.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Okay, bye!

{Homestar disappears.}

STRONG BAD: Alright, we should probably let them get the show started. So, without further adieuuuuu, ladies, gentlemen, geeks, nerds, Fetts (both Jango and Boba), slave Leias, cinnamon bun Leias, Hoth Leias, Bespin Leias, brick layas...

{Homestar appears onscreen.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I like Lobot.

{Homestar disappears.}

STRONG BAD: Please give it up for the man who apparently Tweets with each beat of his heart! {Words appear as he says them.} Wil Wheaton!

{Screen fades to black}

STRONG BAD: Everybody get your wheat on!

{Wil Wheaton enters.}

Fun Facts

"Those things were never cool and never looked good on you."

Explanations

  • Steampunk is a science-fiction sub-genre based on technology from the 19th century. It is popular among nerd circles.
  • Fedoras are hats with a pinched crown. While they were briefly popular with hipsters in the aughties, they quickly fell out of favor and are now seen as a joke among most nerds.

Trivia

  • This marks the first appearance of Homestar Runner characters since their appearance at the Aquabats concert two and a half years prior. This marks the longest hiatus returned from, at 918 days.

Remarks

  • Neither Strong Bad nor Homestar is animated, implying that Matt may have been improvising and/or preforming live.
  • Palm Pilots were referenced previously in Where's The Cheat, referred to as a Pom Pilot.
  • While Palm products continued to be sold untli 2011, the Palm Pilot was released in 1997, making it extremely outdated compared to the other Smartphones he lists. Technically, the Palm Pilot is actually a PDA.

Goofs

  • When Homestar is onscreen, a piece of Strong Bad's eye is missing.

Inside References

  • Strong Bad previously referred to "geeks and nerds" at a convention in TrogdorCon '97.

Real-World References

  • Strong Bad refers to Firefly's popularity and short longevity. He goes on to say that Castle succeeded it in spirit.
  • Strong Bad asks what Homestuck is. This is a common joke among its fans.
  • Homestar claims to own a Blackberry, a Palm Pilot and a Zoom.
  • Strong Bad refers to the many costumes of Princess Leia of the Star Wars fame.
    • Homestar references Lobot, a fan-favorite character of the franchise.
