'''STRONG BAD:''' Whoa, this sounds pretty serious. I know just what to do. ''{brings blip up to the first line}'' Just a little of this...

'''STRONG BAD:''' Ooh, maybe a dash of that...

'''STRONG BAD:''' ''{laughing}'' That was too easy, man. Well, it looks like Homestar is about to make a little contribution to the Lots of Awesome Stuff for Strong Bad Fund.
