STRONG BAD: {slowly} Boom, tick. Tick-a-tick-a-tick, email. Boom, tick. Tick-a-tick-a-tick, What? Did ya read—

{Strong Bad reads the sender's name as "Andy, H-S-I-A-O and sometimes Y, from Taiwan."}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Look Andyman, my age is a closely guarded secret, protected by a sect of closely guarded monks high atop the Coches Mountains. {clears screen} They would no sooner dance with a goat than divulge my age. But they will bake you some crustly guarded bread! Anyways, whattaya mean I look old? Are you telling me the nightly nacho cheese masks aren't working?

{As he says this, cut to a shot of Strong Bad in the bathroom, looking in the mirror. His face is covered in nacho cheese, and he then covers his eyes with two corn chips, with cucumber on them. Cut back to the computer.}

STRONG BAD: I can't have the young peoples thinking I'm old! Am I really losing the youth vote? This calls for an EMERGENCY MARKETING MEETING!!!

{Zoom out to a full view of Strong Bad.}

STRONG BAD: {imitating a siren} Whaaa-donk. Click-click-click-click-click.

{Cut to The Cheat watching TV.}

STRONG BAD: {echoing voice-over} This is not a drill.

{The Cheat gets off the couch and walks off. Cut to a silhouette view of Bubs' Concession Stand.}

STRONG BAD: {echoing voice-over} Whaaa-donk. Click-click-click-click-click. This is not a drill.

{Bubs leaves the concession stand and walks off. Cut to Strong Bad at a desk. There is an easel in the background holding a piece of paper labelled "EMERGENCY MARKETING MEETING!"}

STRONG BAD: Thank you all for coming on short such notice. You represent the best, the brightest, the people I hate the least. 'Cept you, Marzipan. You're here because of legal reasons.


STRONG BAD: Now what I need is an image overhaul. Something to reconnect me with the youth of today. Something that says—

{Zoom in on the easel, the front piece of paper is moved away, revealing a badly-drawn picture of Strong Bad on a skateboard and another person on roller skates, with the caption:}

STRONG BAD: "Sup my young parsons, I too am so on the go that I drink my yogurt from a tube". Now what have ya got?

{Cut to The Cheat with an overhead projector. He puts on a transparency:}


STRONG BAD: Youth through editing, huh? I'm on board, I'm not bored. So, how would it work?
