STRONG BAD: {singing} Green green grass... A pleasant ghost... Strong Bad Email, make us some toast! {brings up the email}

{Strong Bad stutters the word "it''s" a little, and pronounces "whose" heavily and with an s instead of z sound.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Ah, fan clubs. Sweet, innocent, restraining order-inducing fan clubs. Don't get me wrong, fans are great. It's the addition of 'club' that totally roons it. {clears the screen} Which is the opposite of how it usually works. For instance: turkey = {the word is typed in a dull brown color; other voices accompany him} mrenh, turkey club = {the word appears in a rainbow of colors} mmmMMRENHhhhh! {the other voices cheer "Yay!"} But yes, there is a sbemail fan club. Its members call themselves 'Deleteheads' and in a chocolate-covered bit of Stockholm syndrome-esque irony, their president is brother Strong Sad!

{cut to Strong Sad standing at a table in his room. He is wearing a hat styled after a computer's delete key, which reads "Del" on it}

STRONG SAD: {singing} Popa-ulation: Tiii-iii-iiire! {sits, producing the Geddup Noise} All right, deleteheads. It's been a big week for the fan club.

{cut to Strong Mad, The Cheat, and the Cinderblock sitting across from him, all wearing the same delete key hat}

STRONG SAD: We finally switched over our web hosting from Geofire {cut back to Strong Sad} to Angelcities.

{screen of the Deleteheads website, called "The Delete-Heads Website", pops up. There is a pixelated picture of Strong Bad dancing, as well as links to "Our friend Scott's website".}

STRONG SAD: And they've upgraded all of our dead links to hyperlinks!

{the website screen drops off again, showing Strong Sad once more}

STRONG SAD: We also had several interesting discussions in the ongoing debate series "Non Sequitur Champion: Cardgage or Homsar".

{scene cuts to either Senor Cardgage or Homsar, chosen at random:}

  • HOMSAR: {wearing a computer key hat that reads "Thump"} My name's Millions, and I'm the son of a Chipwich!
  • SENOR CARDGAGE: {standing next to a bag} Carrageenan, monteljohn. Can you detect me to the nearest bus stamp?

{cut back to Strong Sad}

STRONG SAD: ...Well, debate's over! Oh, and I just received confirmation today that Abdi LaRue, {scene switches to the view of Strong Mad and The Cheat} sender of the first Strong Bad Email, {Strong Mad grins} is a lock for this year's FHQWHfest.

{the flier for "FHQWHfest '08" appears}

STRONG SAD: And there's a rumor going around that Stro Bro himself might show up to sign autographs!

{Strong Bad walks by, seen through the doorway, carrying an overly-long submarine sandwich. The sandwich continues to go by the doorway after Strong Bad's line}

STRONG BAD: Yeah... I'm not coming.

STRONG SAD: Don't forget to bombard Strong Bad with emails on Sunday night. {thumps fist for emphasis} I think we should go with asking about Bubs's first wife. Some good potential there. {at this point, The Cheat, still wearing his Del hat, can be seen through the doorway, carrying the end of Strong Bad's sandwich.} She was a real firebrand, that one!

{cut back to the Lappy}

STRONG BAD: {typing} So that's fan clubs, the next worst word you can couple with the word 'fan' is, you guessed it, {ominous, eerie music plays} the word {Strong Bad's voice distorts, and the camera zooms in on the word as he types it} 'fiction.'

{cut to a sheet of paper. The words appear typed on the paper as Strong Sad says them}

STRONG SAD: {voice-over} A Grade A Gray Day, a sbemail fanfic by S.Sad

{pan down to show the Lappy from the back. Strong Sad's words appear above the scene now}

STRONG SAD: {voice-over} The Lappy hummed quietly to itself.

{the scene changes to show Strong Bad rubbing his chin and puzzling over the Lappy. Strong Bad mouths the dialogue Strong Sad gives him.}

STRONG SAD: {voice-over} "Curious," said Strong Bad, "Very curious indeed."

STRONG BAD: Since that's totally the way I talk.

{cut to a shot of the Lappy's screen, showing the message "Your inbox has 0 new messages".}

STRONG SAD: {voice-over} His inbox flickered "0 new messages" back at him.

{cut back to a long shot of Strong Bad and the Lappy, with empty space on the left side}

STRONG BAD: Oh, this is definitely fiction.

{Homestar walks in, also mouthing the dialogue Strong Sad narrates. After the word "striding", the words no longer appear at the top of the scene.}

STRONG SAD: {voice-over} "Ahoy, Strong Bad," said Homestar Runner striding casually into the room. "You'll never have to answer another email again!" "Grandiose," replied Strong Bad, eyelids lowered. {Strong Bad lowers his eyelids} "What did you do this time?"

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, Strong Bad. Check out my Strong Sad impression. Ahem.

STRONG SAD: "I turned them all over to Twelve-Times-A-Day Man!"

{Twelve-Times-A-Day Man, who is Strong Sad dressed in a yellow mask and cape, with a logo reading "12X" on his chest, flies down from the top of the screen and lands behind Homestar}

TWELVE-TIMES-A-DAY MAN: I can do it! I can do it twelve times!


{cut to Strong Bad}

STRONG BAD: Twelve-Times-A-Day Man? You can't just start making up terrible new characters!

STRONG SAD: {voice-over} ...he said, putting on a bonnet, {a bonnet appears on Strong Bad's head} and giving Homestar a deep-tissue massage. {the Lappy flies up out of Strong Bad's way, as he raises his arms and approaches Homestar unwillingly}


HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, this gon' be good! {turns away so Strong Bad can rub his back}

STRONG BAD: That's it. Two can play at this extremely nerdy game!

{a piece of notebook paper comes down instead. His words also appear as he says them, while dialogue appears in word balloons}

STRONG BAD: {voice-over} INTO the MORONOSPHERE!! A deleteheads fan fiction, {the following does not appear} because I have plenty of time to say both syllables. By Strong Bad.

{cut to a rough drawing of Strong Sad sitting at a table, with a poorly drawn The Cheat and an angry rectangle}

STRONG BAD: {voice-over, speaking as Strong Sad} "And that's why I like ALL them Star Tracks!" {normal voice} ...said Strong Sad, an entire bag of Twizzlers falling out of his mouth.

STRONG SAD: Hey! You know I can't eat Twizzlérs!

{cut to a drawing of Strong Sad being menaced by a long sandwich with eyes and fangs}

STRONG BAD: {voice-over} Suddenly, an eight-foot sub sandwich constrictor out of nowhere! {the caption "engsmsplode!" is added to the drawing, with a burst around the sandwich constrictor for emphasis}

{cut to Strong Sad, who is very poorly drawn}

STRONG SAD: You can't just start making up terrible new words!

STRONG BAD: {voice-over} ...whined Strong Sad, already up to his waist—

{scene changes to a picture of the sandwich constrictor partially wrapped around Strong Sad}

STRONG BAD: {voice-over} —in braided hoagie roll.

STRONG SAD: Okay, okay! I'll go easy on the fan fic!

STRONG BAD: {voice-over} Just then,—

{the scene changes to show Homestar coming in from the left. His shirt and soles are missing (though he still has a star on his chest), and a leaf is covering his crotch}

STRONG BAD: {voice-over} —Homestar traipsed in, naked as a jaybird.

STRONG SAD: Fiction! I mean fiction! I'll go easy on the fan FICTION!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {leaning in close; Strong Sad is looking away} Hey 12 Times A Day Man, are you gonna eat all them Twizzlérs?

{cut back to the Lappy}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Ohh, grandiose! Very grandiose indeed! Maybe fan clubs and fan fiction aren't so bad after all. In fact, I'm gonna go dabble in a little King of Town fan fiction right now.

STRONG SAD: {voice-over} ...said Strong Bad.

{Strong Bad gets up and leaves, producing the Geddup Noise}

STRONG SAD: {voice-over} ...said Chairscoot.

{New Paper comes down}

STRONG SAD: {voice-over} ...said the New Paper.
