STRONG BAD: {singing} Let a lil' email in your heart, and it will clog your arteries!

STRONG BAD: BLARG! Yes, We have a pizza joint! I gots me a pizza joint! {Cut to the computer room, Strong Bad falls off his chair and then rolls off the screen.} Always been at the pizza joint! Come to the pizza joint with me!

{Cut to Strongbadia. Strong Bad is standing behind a box, which The Cheat is busy writing "Strong Bad's Strong Badian PIZZ". Thay are surrounded by pizza boxes.}

STRONG BAD: Hurry up with that sign, The Cheat!

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat Noises}

STRONG BAD: {walks to the front} No, no, no, that's already way too long. We need something short and catchy that Daphne and her girls can say real quick. You know, like, "The Max", or "The Emporium". It's never gonna work if they have to be like;

{Cut to a Teen Girl Squad scene. Cheerleader and So and So are wearing towels. What's her Face is wearing the same clothes. The Ugly One is dressed like a mummy. Daphne is there too, wearing a towel that supposedly says Daphne}

DAPHNE: Hey gals! Let's towel off and meet up at {words appear on screen as they are said} Strong Bad's Strong Badian pi-

CHEERLEADER: {interrupting} This is taking too long!

WHAT'S HER FACE: I'm already bored!

SO AND SO: I'm going home!

THE UGLY ONE: I belong in a museum!

{Cut back to Strong Bad and The Cheat}

STRONG BAD: College girls don't have that kind of time, man. We gotta strike while the girl is still hot!

THE CHEAT: {annoyed The Cheat noise, he crosses out "Strong Bad's Strong Badian" and writes below it, "The". The sign now reads "The Pizz"}

STRONG BAD: Yeah! The Pizz! I love it!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Umm, yeah. Lemme get a slice of p-roni, with some p-sauce, and {squinting} m-rooms.

STRONG BAD: Homestar, get outta here! We're not a real pizza place! This is just a front to meet some girls!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ohhh...Lemme get a calzone, then. With some p-loaf and, m-cheese.

{phone rings}

STRONG BAD: What the- Hang on a sec. {answers} Uhh...The Pizz? Thanks for calling? {Homestar leaves}

KING OF TOWN: Yeah, lemme get about 50 Thanksgiving Lovers pizzas delivered to the only castle around here!

STRONG BAD: King of Town? How did you even know about this place?

{Close in on Strong Bad, with the screen split to show the King of Town on the other end}

KING OF TOWN: Well, if you must know, I spend most of my day calling random numbers in hopes of finding a new restaurant!

STRONG BAD: Well, we're not a real place. {tapping offscreen} We're just a-

{Cut back to Strong Badia. Homestar pops up wearing a The Pizz shirt and hat. The Cheat is also wearing a hat}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {zooms in at each sentence} Table 44 needs more breadsticks! The soccer team left without paying! And the delivery guy got a flat!

STRONG BAD: What are you talking about? Weren't you just a customer?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah, but The Cheat hired me for the lunch rush. I mean, hey! Somebody's gotta make that money! {runs off}

STRONG BAD: This is all wrong! {cuts back to Strong Badia} The Cheat, in our effort to make a pretend pizza place in order to score some chicks, we somehow created a successful and well-reviewed actual pizza place!

{cut to Strong Sad standing in front of a sign that reads "Review Revue"}

STRONG SAD: Rustic and filled with old-world cardboard charm, the Pizz serves up Strong Badian-style pizza at a price that won't leave a dent in your wallet!

{during the second half of the preceding line, the Pizz's logo rolls in from the right; at the end, a green check mark and the text "pick!" appears with a "ding"}

{cut back to Strong Bad and The Cheat in Strong Badia}

STRONG BAD: Maybe we're going about this the wrong way, The Cheat. Girls don't wanna meet people in person anymore! They wanna meet 'em online!

{cut to a view of the Lappy 486 with a nondescript web browser open, the text "http://www.virtualpizz.biz" begins being typed in}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} Welcome to virtualpizz.biz!

{The screen turns green with the text "Virtualpizz.biz" and a button that says "login", a cursor moves over the button and clicks it. The screen changes to show a picture of a piece of pizza with eyes, arms and legs; to the left are buttons saying "eyes", "hair", "mouth", "nose", "topping" and "crust".}

STRONG BAD: Where typical college girls can customize their own slice of pizza for some serious social networking.

{The cursor moves around and clicks the various buttons; the features in question change with each click. The screen then changes two show two of the slices of pizza in Strong Badia with Strong Bad. The lower left corner reads, "Pizz Points $500}

STRONG BAD: With me!

COMPUTERIZED STRONG BAD: {his lines appear in orange bubbles above him} Sup, Ladies. Welcome to the Pizz!

SLICE OF PIZZA ON THE LEFT: {in Homestar Runner's voice, line appears in a red bubble above him} Hey man, can I get a slice of p-roni?"

SLICE OF PIZZA ON THE RIGHT: {in the King of Town's voice, line appears in a purple bubble above him} I'd like to place a pick-up order.

COMPUTERIZED STRONG BAD: You're not Daphne, you're... pizza trolls! Flame war!!

{both slices of pizza catch fire and start running away}

SLICE OF PIZZA ON THE RIGHT: It burns!

SLICE OF PIZZA ON THE LEFT: Ahhhhhhhh!

COMPUTERIZED STRONG BAD: Well, I guess I should spend all these Pizz points.

{The number of Pizz points decreases and objects appear in Strong Badia: The arcade game and couch from the Basement and Homestar's dresser and cow lamp. The right fence is then painted like the Basement, the left pink with blue dots. Cut back to Strong Sad.}
