{Strong Bad is sitting in front of the Lappier.}

STRONG BAD: {singing} Let's not make a big deal out of this! It's just a little Strong Bad Email! Ring!

{As he says "Ring", he brings up the email, and the Lappier makes a ringing sound.}

{He reads the abbreviation as though choking, and the name as "Kristy Ann Withak".}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Come now young Withak. While Cardgage is too cool for lots of things: {types as a numbered list. 1.} Wiping honey mustard off his goatee.

{Cut to Senor Cardgage, whose beard is full of yellow liquid. The camera slowly zooms in as some honey mustard drips off, and traffic can be heard in the distance. Cut back to the Lappier.}

STRONG BAD: {typing: 2.} Knowing dead animals don't make good knee pads.

{Cut to Senor Cardgage's legs at the stadium. He has a dead armadillo wrapped around his left leg, and a dead squirrel around the right. As the camera pans out, it is revealed that he is wearing a blue "Team Kneepads" shirt. Coach Z is standing nearby, next to a basketball.}

SENOR CARDGAGE: Prude me in, Couch Z! {holds up his left leg} I'm Reggie Toupee!

{Coach Z turns away and facepalms.}

STADIUM ANNOUNCER: Now entering the game for Team Kneepads, number 34, Reggie Toupee!

{Senor Cardgage stands triumphantly as the crowd groans. Cut back to the Lappier.}

STRONG BAD: And {typing, 3:} being out of the way.

{Cut to the field. An arrow-shaped sign that reads "ladder" points to the right. Homestar is carrying a ladder and heading in that direction, but Senor Cardgage blocks his path.}


SENOR CARDGAGE: {grumbles}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {stepping to his left} Pardon me.

SENOR CARDGAGE: {also stepping to his left, remaining in Homestar's way} {grumbles}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ladder. {steps to his right} Got a ladder.

SENOR CARDGAGE: {steps to his right} {grumbles}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {steps back to his left, as Cardgage does the same, getting annoyed} 'Scuse me. Have a ladder.

SENOR CARDGAGE: {grumbles}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {steps back right} Trying.

SENOR CARDGAGE: {steps back right} {grumbles}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {steps back left} Walk by. {Cardgage goes left, Homestar goes right} With a ladder.

SENOR CARDGAGE: {goes back to the right} {grumbles}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {back left} 'Scuse me.

{Cut back to the Lappier as Strong Bad clears the screen.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Being in a character video is not something he's too cool for. I should know. I filmed the thang ding. {stops typing} Dang, {backspaces over last two words} I, I mean {types} dang thing.

{Cut to the field. Strong Bad is standing next to a camcorder, and Senor Cardgage is in front of him.}

STRONG BAD: Okay, Senor! I got my camera all set up, and—

SENOR CARDGAGE: No, I bronk my own. {holds up an old air freshener labeled "Smellz Yeah!"}

STRONG BAD: Oh, uh, you want me to use... this {takes the air freshener} to record your character video?

SENOR CARDGAGE: It's clearly state-of-the-arp.

STRONG BAD: Yeah, yeah, I agree, don't get me wrong, but... er, hear me out: it might also just be a crusty key-lime-pie-scented air freshener? Which, I mean, is very visionary of you, and nobody shoots on air freshener no more.

SENOR CARDGAGE: Mash play, Polenta!

STRONG BAD: Um... {holds up the air freshener uncertainly} okay. {taps it} Boop.

SENOR CARDGAGE: Protuberances abound, Regalith!

{Cut back to the Lappier.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} He went on like that for 2 or 3 hours. Until he informed me that we had "run out of film." So I'm thinking Cardgage just isn't gonna have a character video, right? Then, the next day, this mysterious package shows up!

{Cut to Strong Bad outside, by his mailbox. The mailbox appears to spit up a package into Strong Bad's hand, complete with a voiced "blah!" sound effect, and the screen flashes as spooky music plays.}

STRONG BAD: {narrates as the Strong Bad of the time opens the package} It was some kind of video tape cassette, a short-lived format called Betaflop-D.

{The tape can be seen now. It resembles an audio cassette player on the right, complete with a small cassette inside, play/stop/rewind buttons below it, and an eject button in the middle. A larger roll of tape, as though a VHS tape, is on its left. Below that are written the words "BETAFLOP-D", "SUPER TYPE - ALL BIAS", and "VIDEO CATHUNK". A 5" floppy disk labelled "CARDGAGE CHARACTER VIDEO" pops out of the top with a toaster sound effect.}

STRONG BAD: {narrating} Apparently made for use only inside Tom Brokaw's house.

{The camera pans down, showing the side of the tape reads "Private props of T.Brokes", which is crossed out. Cut back to the Lappier.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Unfortunately, we never found a beige enough device on which to play the dang thing. {stops typing} Er, {backspaces over last two words, types:} thang ding.

{Cut to behind the Lappier.}

STRONG BAD: Until now!

{Cut to the Basement, where Strong Bad, Homestar, Strong Sad, and Strong Mad are gathered around the couch, facing the TV.}

STRONG SAD: So where's this beige-enough device? This doesn't look anything like the inside of Tom Brokaw's house!

STRONG BAD: Oh, it's a few blocks away. {the TV is shown, connected to a "TV/GAME?" switch, which is itself connected to another wire, which is connected to another wire, and so on, which is followed for quite some distance} It took over four hundred different adapters to get that thing to plug into our TV.

{The wires stop at a large box labeled "BROK4W Beigemost". Bubs is standing next to it, holding a walkie-talkie.}

STRONG BAD: {through the walkie-talkie} {fake static noise} Come in, Bubs! {Cut back to Strong Bad, talking into his own walkie-talkie} Insoit the tape! {fake static noise}

{Cut back to Bubs}

BUBS: Static. Roger that! {inserts the tape into a slot on the side of the "Beigemost" box} Cathunk! Static.

{Cut to the TV. After a moment of static, Senor Cardgage is seen in the field.}

SENOR CARDGAGE: I'm Seron Cardgage, {"Seron Cardgage" is written at the bottom of the screen.} the lead star from Characters Website! I'd like to pintroduce you to the family might/could!
