[edit] Transcript

{Title card: 79 seconds left! Music plays softly in the background}

{Cut to The Field. Homestar Runner and Strong Sad are sitting with their knees up. A glass of water is sitting next to Strong Sad.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I say, just go for it, you know. You just move forward, commit to yourself, {Strong Sad nods} and {punctuates each word} go for it!

STRONG SAD: Okay, I think I'll take a chance.

{Strong Sad pours some of the water onto his knee.}

STRONG SAD: It tickles!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: You see? That's what I'm talking about, man. {closeup of Homestar} Water. On. The knee. Commit to it!

{record scratch sound; music stops}

STRONG BAD: Your pathetic {cut back to wider shot, with Strong Bad now visible standing on a wooden chair} conversation pales in comparison to the one you are about to be a part of.

{close up of Strong Sad}

STRONG SAD: {sarcastically} Oh great, I can't wait.

{close up of Strong Bad}

STRONG BAD: I've finally committed to it. I've talked about it for years, but I'm finally moving forward! {zip pan to a low shot of Strong Bad with a yellow background} You're all going to have to start calling me "The Ledge" from now on!

{Cut back to Homestar}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hi, The Ledge From Now On. Would you like to join our wet knee gumption club?

{Cut back to Strong Bad}

STRONG BAD: No, just "The Ledge".

{wider shot of all three}

STRONG SAD: The Ledge? Like ledge of a cliff?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: You mean, like, short for leg?

{close up of Strong Sad}

STRONG SAD: A-lleged ladies' man?

{close up of Homestar}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {annoyed} Short for leg?

{shot of all three}

STRONG BAD: No, you knee-wetters! Like short {Cut to frontal shot of Strong Bad} for "The Legend"! As in, I am one! A living one! A -dary one!

{shot of all three}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, dairy. Like cows. Like a cow leg.

{close up of Homestar}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {excited and quivering} Oh, Strong Bad! It's like my cow lamp and your tape leg {picture of the cow lamp and Strong Bad's dismembered leg wrapped in tape appear over Homestar's head} had a baby in my brain {the cow lamp and tape leg merge and go into Homestar's head} and just came out my mouth! {cloud marked "Cow Leg" comes out of Homestar's mouth, Homestar leans toward it} There, there, little guy. Daddy's here.

{shot of all three; Strong Bad sits down in the chair}

STRONG BAD: {reluctantly} Ugh, hand me that knee water... {Homestar hands the glass to Strong Bad}

{Title card: Just 3 to go...} {The sound of water being poured can be heard in the background}

{Cut back to Strong Bad and Homestar; Strong Bad's knee is wet}

STRONG BAD: Teehee, it does tic—

{Title card: None seconds left.}

{Title card: end.}

[edit] Easter Eggs

  • Click on "e" in end to see Strong Bad write his new title on a composition book.
    STRONG BAD: This book belongs to: {He starts writing on the note area of the cover. A fanfare plays.} The Ledge. {He spells "Ledge" as "LEG". A record scratches and the fanfare stops.} Aw, crap! Homestar was right! This just spells leg!
  • Click on the period to see a poster for the Water on the Knee club. It has a cartoony picture of a knee with water being poured on it, with the caption "COMMIT TO IT!!". Text below the picture reads "Water on the Knee", "Paid for by the Wet Knee Gumption Club".
    • Click again to see a Russian version of the poster. The cartoon is much more angular, and is colored only in red and shades of grey. The caption now reads "ПередаЙТе ЭТО!!" ("PeredaJTe ETO!!"). The text below the picture is the same, but in a different font. (See Trivia)

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • Water on the knee is a medical condition where excess fluid collects in the knee joint.

[edit] Trivia

  • The (grammatically incorrect) Russian phrase "Передайте Это!!" ("Peredajte Èto!!") on the second poster translates in English to "Transmit this!!" The correct phrasing is "Поручите к ему!!" (Poruchite k emu!!).

[edit] Remarks

  • The audio quality is higher than usual here.
  • Ignoring the Loading screen, there are, indeed, almost exactly 79 seconds between the beginning and the appearance of the "none seconds left" card. However, there are closer to two seconds from when the "Just 3 to go" card appears and when the "none seconds left" card appears.
  • This is the first toon to list the time only in seconds on the menu when it goes over the one minute mark.
  • Homestar sits down fully on the ground. He does not seem to have a bottom, as his legs bend up into his shirt, as in flashback and extra plug.
  • The description on the Shorts menu originally read "Homestar and Strong Sad run outta time" while the New Stuff menu read "HSR and Strong Sad run outta time." This was later changed so both read "HSR".

[edit] Goofs

  • Even after being poured on Strong Sad and Strong Bad's knees, the water level in the glass never goes down.
