STRONG BAD: Bring to me a suitable email, that I may check it down.

{Pronounces "Mr" as "Mere" and says "Hey, I'm no mere Strong Bad okay?!"}

STRONG BAD: Look Perthy Paul, I've been over this already: Strong Badia doesn't have/need an army. When we need muscle, we farm it out to our favorite band of missionaries, er I mean mercenaries, MERCENARIES! In fact, if your sons are so bonzer to enlist, they can swing by their booth at our Vaguely Military Career Fair, which just happens to be starting right now!

{Cuts to The Cheat standing next to Strong Bad}

THE CHEAT: {Makes Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Oh, it's not for another 3 weeks. Okay.

{Cuts to a screen that says "2 weeks later..." and then shows Strong Bad}

STRONG BAD: Intoducing Tito the top Haticen and his beautiful assistant, Strong Mad with 2 basketballs shoved down his singlet!

STRONG SAD: Yaaaay!! {Claps}

{Cuts to a screen that says "1 week later..." and shows Strong Bad with an eyepatch and a mustache taped on}

  • At the end, click on "Tito the Tophatician's" to see a video clip:
{The Cheat is standing in front of a sign that bears the Cheat Commandos logo and reads "Meet TV's Firebert!" After a long pause with cricket sounds, he takes out a fine tip permanent marker and replaces "Firebert" with "Trogdor." A large crowd of people gathers around.}
