{Close-up of a water cooler. The title words, "Biz Cas Fri" appear. Air bubbles rise into the cooler. Cut to Strong Bad at the office computer in his cubicle. Strong Bad is busily typing away, wearing a striped casual polo shirt.}

STRONG BAD: Ahh, I'm almost done with these third-quarter projection analysis spreadsheets, and still no sign of—

{Homestar Runner swoops in, wearing a solid-brown casual polo shirt.}

[edit] Easter Eggs

A meet n' greet?
  • Click on the comic strip in the background right after Homestar says "Crack - me - up!" to see a Dullard comic strip.
PANEL ONE:
{Dullard is working at his computer. A woman is standing nearby}
WOMAN: MISSED YOU AT THE OFF SITE MEET N' GREET
PANEL TWO:
DULLARD: {irritated} THAT'S FUNNY. I DIDN'T MISS YOU AT THE MY HOUSE SIT N' DRINK.

{Dullard bangs his head on his computer.}
PANEL SIX:
COMB-OVER MAN: WHAT'S THIS I HEAR ABOUT A SIT N' DRINK AT YOUR PLACE?
  • Click on the note at the top-left of the cubicle wall when Homestar says, "Beach Themed Restaurant" to see the menu of the restaurant.

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • The sticky note on the wall reads "ASAP!!!", which is an initialism for "As Soon As Possible."
  • A projection is a forecast about the future and, in business, usually predicts how much money the company will earn and spend.

[edit] Remarks

  • The computer monitor Strong Bad is sitting at is an Apple IIe monitor, given away by its adjustable viewing angle screen.
  • Most features on homestarrunner.com are released on Monday, but this was released on a Friday.
  • "Appeteasers" is a portmanteau.

[edit] Goofs

  • After Homestar bangs his head on Strong Bad's keyboard, the "ASAP!!!" note is relocated. After the computer displays the system error message, the sticky note is back in its original place.
  • After the Flamboyant System Error appears, the next cut shows the computer monitor from an angle. While Homestar is saying, "Anyways, I'll let you finish up here. See you at six!", twice Strong Bad's head goes behind the superimposed image of the error screen.

[edit] Inside References

  • The title of this toon stands for "Business Casual Fridays" and comes from the email other days.
  • "Flamboyant System Error" is another instance of Strong Bad's Computer Malfunctioning.
  • The "Remember the 'Tivities" motivational poster from no loafing is clearly visible on the upper part of the screen.
  • The fake palms are from "Fake Palms Resort" in the sketchbook on the DVD.
  • The Dullard comic strip first appeared in dullard. Although the close-up of the comic is original to this toon, the comic tacked to Strong Bad's cubicle is actually the one from method #3 in the DVD version of dullard.
  • Homestar is wearing the same brown shirt he wore in the other days version of Biz Cas Fri.
  • Homestar calls Strong Bad his dog.

[edit] Fast Forward

[edit] DVD Version

  • When Homestar says, "Rondleman, you crack me up," the camera does not cut away to a closeup of him, nor does it zoom in on him when he says, "Crack! Me! Up!".
