STRONG BAD: {singing} Here comes another email that I'll answer for you! Here comes another email that I'll answer for you!

subject: garage sale=money!
hey strong bad!
I seriously think you need to have a garage sale!! I mean
think of all da things you could get with all that money...

cat (yeah that's my real name)

{Strong Bad doesn't read the part in parentheses and instead says...}

STRONG BAD: ...and something I don't wanna read. {typing} What sort of 'da things' are we talking about here, Catman? 'Da bomb' or, uh, 'da boyz' or even, {not typed} uh, {typing} 'da hood?' Nah, I don't think I want any of dose. {clears screen}Lemme tell you a thing or two about garage sales: Ya ever get the feeling that the people just got lazy taking the trash out, so they stopped right there on the driveway and started putting price tags on things? I mean, isn't it just a little suspicious that there's only a one-letter difference between 'garage sale' and 'garbage sale?' {says "garbage" as "gar-BAGE"} Except, don't ever say 'garbage' {same way} like that. That's, like, the only joke Moms have and they can keep it for all I care. So then there's the issue of the sort of folks that frequent garage sales: bottom feeders, lemme tell ya.

{Cut to Strong Bad's garage sale. There is a sign reading "GAR[s]B[/s]AGE SALE" in the middle of The Field, and merchandise (see below) is found everywhere with various price tags. Marzipan walks up.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} First, there's the haggler, {"THE HAGGLER" appears in the middle of the screen with a bowler derby on it for a moment.} the guy who spends all day trying to talk you down from a quarter to twenty-two cents for some worthless piece of crap.

{The camera scrolls over to Bubs and Strong Bad. Bubs is holding an ugly doll.}

BUBS: I'll give you two thin dimes for this pantyhose doll.

STRONG BAD: First off, uh, that is Aunt Gert! And secondly, she's worth WAY more than the quarter I'm asking for her! Heck, I paid six-fifty for her new! And them's 1998 dollars!

BUBS: Well, maybe if she was wearing a troll outfit, or a witch's hat or somethin'...

STRONG BAD: I'll let her go for twenty-four cents.

BUBS: Twenty-two and a half!

STRONG BAD: You, my friend... just bought yourself an Aunt Gert.
