STRONG BAD: {singing} And Marzipan would rock,

{Marzipan wails on her guitar}

STRONG BAD: {singing} And The Stick would be this big old tree that'd try to eat everyone except The Cheat and me --

{a polaroid picture of the tree with Strong Bad (still singing) and The Cheat hanging out with it. Strong Mad appears from behind the left border of the photo and says...}

STRONG MAD: AND ME!

STRONG BAD: {singing} We'll see.. {Strong Mad looks shocked} And The King of Town would be underground in a box filled up with peas...

{pan down to reveal a large crate label 'A MILLION PEAS' buried under ground. A cut-out from the crate is taken away to reveal The King Of Town inside surrounded with peas}

THE KING OF TOWN: I hate peas!

{Strong Bad appears in the lower right and says...}

STRONG BAD: I know!

STRONG BAD: Oh, um. Right. Of course. {coughs} {speaking quietly} yeah I still want that bust of Bubo.

STRONG SAD: Ok, bye weirdo. What are you standing on that stool for anyway?

STRONG BAD: For your information, I was checking on the lights, Strong Sad. We got that recessed lighting, y'know. Yup, everything looks great.

{cut back to the computer where Strong Bad continues his reply}

STRONG BAD: Yeah, things would be different alright. Though I'm a little disappointed in what I came up with for Homsar. Modestly hot my eye!
