[edit] Transcript

{Yellow letters reading "Previously on HomestarRunner.com" on a black background zoom out slowly.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {voiceover} Previously {pronounced "preh-viously"} on homestarrunner.com...

{Fade to a scene from strong badathlon, set in the Field. Marzipan and Homsar are sitting around a wooden table with a pink and white tea set on it. Faint music and finger snapping can be heard in the background.}

MARZIPAN: ...and that's why I believe the DNA evidence had been tampered with.

{The music continues. Cut to a clip from unnatural, in Strong Badia. Strong Bad and The Cheat are seen sitting around a yellow table with a red and black teapot and matching teacups on it.}

STRONG BAD: ...and that's when I tampered with the DNA evidence!

{The music continues. Cut to inside the movie theater, from the movies. Strong Sad is sitting in a seat next to Pom Pom.}

MOVIE: {voiceover} ...the DNA evidence was gone!

{The music continues. Cut to an excerpt of your funeral, inside Marzipan's house. A statue of Strong Bad wrestling a cougar is sitting by Marzipan's couch; the statue has Homestar's trench coat and bowler hat hung on it. Homestar is standing in the middle of the room. Marzipan leans her head into the scene}

MARZIPAN: Did you find the DNA evidence?

{The music continues. Cut to the office, as seen in from work. Strong Bad is sitting at his computer. Pom Pom, already halfway offscreen, bounces away from the cubicle. Homestar shuffles after him, bending over with a downtrodden look.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I'll have that DNA evidence on your desk by five.

{The music continues. Cut to the Easter egg from rough copy, inside Marzipan's house. Homestar is sitting on the couch, looking sad. The lights are off.}


{The music continues. A guitar comes in to the music and begins playing a jazzy tune. Cut to a purple background with "The DNA Evidence" written onscreen, angled and in block letters. The camera pans down to Strong Sad. A crowd is heard in the background. Strong Sad has an easel on his right with "DNA Evidence" written across the top and a diagram of different characters and links between them.}

STRONG SAD: Attention! {raises right hand} Your attention please!

{Cut to Homsar with his mouth open on the other side of the room. Homsar gulps and closes his mouth. The crowd noises stop. Cut back to Strong Sad.}

STRONG SAD: After extensive investigation, I'm ready to release {raises his right hand and turns his head toward the chart} my findings. I first spoke with—

{Cut to Marzipan in her kitchen}

STRONG SAD: {spoken with a faux French accent} —Marzipan.

MARZIPAN: Well, it all started several weeks ago.

{Cut to Marzipan's living room. Marzipan is walking in wearing a toga. There are muddy footprints on the carpet.}

MARZIPAN: {voiceover} I came home from my toga-yoga class to find that my house had been broken into and that the culprit had left behind some DNA evidence.

{As she walks, the screen pans left towards the couch. The cushions are disarranged and the "Thank You" picture on the wall is crooked. The muddy prints stop at the couch. Something made of glass is just visible behind one of the cushions. Marzipan looks at the footprints. Cut to Strong Sad holding a pen and his notebook in Marzipan's kitchen.}

STRONG SAD: What was it? Hair particles? Skin flakes? Blood crispies?

{Cut back to toga Marzipan in front of ransacked couch.}

MARZIPAN: {voiceover} No, it was a little test tube just full of green DNA evidence.

{As she says this, toga Marzipan pulls out a test tube filled with green liquid from the couch. Cut to close up of Marzipan inspecting the tube. Cut back to Strong Sad}

STRONG SAD: Oh. {he writes something down} Just like in the movies.

{Cut to front of Marzipan's house, toga Marzipan is walking out holding the test tube.}

MARZIPAN: {voiceover} So I immediately took it to Bubs to be analyzed...

{Cut back to Marzipan in her kitchen}

MARZIPAN: ...and this {holds up a tube filled with purple liquid and stamped with a "TAMPERED WITH!" label} is all I got back.

{A scene in Strong Bad's garage scrolls in from the right. Bubs is present.}

BUBS: Well, it all started a few weeks ago. I just got finished teaching my—

{Cut to Bubs' Concession Stand. Bubs is walking inside wearing a toga.}

BUBS: {voiceover} —toga-yoga class, {Bubs takes off his toga} when old-maid Marzipan showed up.

{Marzipan, still wearing her toga, walks onscreen.}

MARZIPAN: Hey, Bubs. Can you analyze this {she holds up the test tube} DNA evidence for me?

{Cut to the inside of the stand. Bubs is silhouetted on the left.}

BUBS: Sure thing, but it's gonna cost you an arm and a leg!

MARZIPAN: Not a problem.

{Marzipan hands over the test tube to Bubs. Cut to Strong Sad in the garage.}

STRONG SAD: So, what did you find out when you analyzed it?

{Cut back to Bubs}

BUBS: Oh, that. Well, next thing I know—

{Cut to inside of stand with silhouette}

BUBS: {voiceover} —Strong Bad shows up.

{Strong Bad pops up from under the counter.}

STRONG BAD: Hey, Bubs. One green apple snow cone please.

BUBS: Comin' right up!

{Bubs moves out of view. Cut to a shelf with four jugs of flavored syrup labeled "Red", "Purple", "Green Apple", and "Blue". All contain various levels of appropriately-colored liquid, except for the "Green Apple" container, which has a hole near its bottom. Some soft music begins to play. Scene zooms out slowly.}

BUBS: Ooh. Er...

{Cut to bubs holding an unflavored snowcone in one hand and the evidence in the other.}

BUBS: {looks at the snowcone} Uh... {looks at the DNA evidence} Blaaaah...

{Bubs pours the evidence over the snow cone. Music stops. Cut to outside of stand}

BUBS: Here ya go. One... {turns head to the side} cough, cough... {looks back at Strong Bad} green apple snowcone.

{Bubs hands the cone over to Strong Bad. Cut to Strong Sad, writing something down. He stops and looks up.}

STRONG SAD: You served the DNA in a snowcone?!

{Cut to Bubs}

BUBS: {raising his right arm} And it sold like hotcake!

{A scene in the Smoky Office scrolls up from the bottom of the screen. Strong Bad is sitting at the desk, leaning back in the chair. He is wearing his Dangeresque glasses, and there is a lit cigarette in the ashtray on the desk.}

STRONG BAD: Yeah, I bought the DNA snowcone.

{Cut to Strong Sad in front of a window, writing with the pad and pen.}

STRONG SAD: You knew it had the DNA evidence in it?!

{Cut back to Strong Bad.}

STRONG BAD: Well, yeah.

{Cut to side of Bubs' Concession Stand. Strong Bad is standing there wearing his shades. Marzipan walks up, wearing a toga.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} I overheard that Marzipan had some DNA evidence, and I figured I could use it to continue my genetic experiments on The Cheat.

{As he says this, Strong Bad leans to the right. Marzipan holds up the tube and talks to Bubs. Strong Bad rubs his hands together with glee and jumps off toward the back of the stand. Cut to the shelf with the snowcone flavorings. The "Green Apple" beaker is relatively full.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} So I sprung into action.

{Strong Bad appears and punctures the bottom of the Green Apple container with a pencil before ducking down again. The liquid pours out. Cut to a view from inside the stand; the soft music starts again. Strong Bad pops up from beneath the counter.}

STRONG BAD: Bubs-keep, one green-app' sno'c, on the rocks. And keep it rusty.

{Cut back to Strong Bad in the office.}

STRONG BAD: By the time I got home, it was all melted...

{Cut to computer room. Strong Bad walks in from the right, still wearing Dangeresque glasses, and carrying a glass of green liquid.}

STRONG BAD: {voiceover} ...so I put it in a glass on my desk and went downstairs {Strong Bad puts the glass on the desk and walks offscreen} to do one of my high-impact toga-yoga videos.

{Cut back to office}

STRONG BAD: And that's the last I saw of it.

{Cut to Strong Sad, writing something down.}

STRONG SAD: You left it on your desk, eh? {he looks up}

{A scene in Marzipan's house scrolls in from the right. Focus on Homestar.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah, I swung by Strong Bad's the other day. {angry expression} The old lady had me out looking for some kind of {brightens up} Dan evidence.

{Cut to computer room. The vial of DNA evidence is still on the desk. Homestar walks on from the right, wearing a hat and trenchcoat.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Strong Bad! I'm wearing a hat and trenchcoat! {Notices the glass} Ooh! A tall, cool glass of Mountain Dwah.

{Cut to close-up}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Don't mind if I dwah! {He drinks the evidence.} Glug, glug, glug.

{After a short pause, Homestar spits it out. Cut to a dripping, green-tinted The Cheat, on the left side of the Lappy.}

THE CHEAT: {Angry The Cheat noises}

{Cut back to Homestar.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, sorry, The Cheat. That stuff tasted like dwah-dwah.

{Cut back to The Cheat, who is wiping himself off with a gross towel.}

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

{Cut back to Strong Sad, writing something down.}

STRONG SAD: So he wiped his face off with a gross towel, eh? {he looks up}

{A locker room screen scrolls in from the right. Coach Z is there, looking upset.}

COACH Z: You figured it out, Strong Sad! My cover is blown! I am actually...

{Coach Z pats his chest and puts his hands on his hips. A heroic halo appears briefly around him, accompanied by an heroic sound effect.}

COACH Z: ...Damp Towel Man! {cups his chin in his hand} And also his mild-mannered alter-ego, Dan Towelman.

{Cut to Strong Sad}

STRONG SAD: Coach Z, no one's ever heard of those people.

{Cut to Coach Z}

COACH Z: Damp Towel Man is a super hero. He collects damp towels from across the galaxy.

{Cut to computer room, where a now green-spotted towel rests on the desk. Coach Z comes on from the left, wearing a black mask and a towel around his neck like a cape.}

COACH Z: Moist molecules! A green-stained damp towel! The rarest and most powerful kind!

{Cut to the office. A janitorial cart rolls onto the screen from the left, with the towel on it.}

COACH Z: {voiceover} So I took the towel to work the next day to see if it could clean up microwave lasagna stains. {Pronounces the middle "a" in "lasagna" like the "a" in "at"}

{Coach Z walks by with a vacuum cleaner and starts humming. Homestar shuffles by from the right, looking angry and muttering to himself.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Stupid DNA evidence! Where am I supposed to find evidence by 5:00?

{Cut back to Coach Z in the locker room}

COACH Z: But when I got back to my cart, it was gone! I suspect it was my nemesis, {shakes his fist} Dry Ragamuffin! Or his mild-mannered alter ego, Dreyfus Ragámoofin.

{Cut back to Strong Sad}

STRONG SAD: Coach Z, you have a real sucky imagination.

{Cut back to Coach Z.}

COACH Z: That I do, my boy, that I do. {pats his chin} Though I did notice that...

{Cut to the office, slowly zooming in on some muddy boots. Strong Bad can be seen on the right sitting at his desk. Coach Z's vacuum is moving back and forth.}

COACH Z: {voiceover} ...Strong Bad had some muddy boots sitting under his cyorbicle.

{Cut back to Coach Z in the locker room.}

COACH Z: I didn't find that at all suspicious.

{The same scene in the Smoky Office scrolls up from the bottom of the screen.}

STRONG BAD: First of all, those were not muddy. I'd been stomping around in pecan pie all morning. Marzipan's allergic to pecans, you know.

{Cut to Strong Sad}

STRONG SAD: So it was your DNA evidence!

{Cut back to Strong Bad.}

STRONG BAD: Uh, no. It was yours.

{Cut to Strong Sad, whose eyes are now bugging out. Zoom in on Strong Sad.}

STRONG SAD: Whaaaaaat?!

{Cut back to Strong Bad}

STRONG BAD: Yeah, I was just swiping the change from—

{Cut to Marzipan's living room. Strong Bad is wearing the pecan mush-covered boots, has the test tube in the back of his pants, and is on the couch, pulling money from it.}

STRONG BAD: —Marzipan's couch cushions. And I must've accidentally dropped it.

{The test tube leaps out of Strong Bad's pants and lands on the couch. Cut back to Strong Bad in Smoky Office.}

STRONG BAD: Man, I was {holds up hand with thumb close to the main part of the glove} this close to finding out if you're really part elephant or part hippo or something.

{Cut back to Strong Sad, who looks angry}

STRONG SAD: I am not!

{Cut back to Strong Bad}

STRONG BAD: Well, now I guess we'll never know for sure. Now if you'll excuse me, {Dangeresque music starts} the stairs of this building have been burned down by termites. So it looks like I'm gonna have to jump!

{Strong Bad jumps off the screen. Fade out, then in to close-up of the bottom of Strong Sad's bed. Strong Sad pulls out his "fond reminiscences" box from underneath it; it has the same contents as it did in Strong Sad's Secret Styles, with the notable addition of the DNA evidence test tube. Strong Sad grabs the test tube. Cut to close-up of Strong Sad smiling.}

STRONG SAD: Yes. The world will never know for sure. Oh-ho-ho-ho.

{Zoom in on Strong Sad.}

STRONG SAD: Oh-ho-ho-ho-ho.

{Zoom in on Strong Sad again; the camera is now angled.}

STRONG SAD: Ooh-hoo-ho-ho-ho-ho!

{Zoom in even closer. Strong Sad now has a maniacal expression on his face.}

STRONG SAD: Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha!

{Cut to Strong Bad stealing change from Marzipan's couch. Pan left to see Strong Sad peeking through the window}

STRONG SAD: {voiceover} Ooh-hoo-hoo-hoo!

{Cut to Marzipan giving the test tube to Bubs. Pan up to see Strong Sad on the roof.}

STRONG SAD: {voiceover} Ah-ha-ha-ha-ha! Ah-ha-ha-ha!

{Cut to Coach Z's cart. Strong Sad comes up from behind it and reaches for the towel.}

STRONG SAD: {voiceover} Hah-ha-ha-ha-ha!

{Cut back to Strong Sad standing in his room, holding up the test tube.}

STRONG SAD: Woo-ho-ho-ho!

{Cut to a long view of the room, revealing that Homsar is standing next to Strong Sad.}

STRONG SAD: Ah-ha-ha-ha! Woo-ha-ha—

{Record scratch. Strong Sad looks down and finally notices Homsar there.}

STRONG SAD: Oh. Hi. You're not gonna say anything, are you?

{Cut to a close-up of Homsar.}

HOMSAR: AaAaAa, these Easter pants are getting waAaAy too tight! {His hat flies off his head on "pants", slides backwards on "way", and performs a backflip off his mouth on "too tight".}

{Two ascending notes play, accompanied by the screen turning black except for a small circle around Homsar's eyes. Fade to black. "THE END" appears on a purple background in block letters, zooming out slowly.}

[edit] Easter Eggs

Dan Towelman is nowhere to be found!
  • Click on the Z on Coach Z's medallion after he reveals that he's Damp Towel Man to see a Strong Badman comic.
  • Click on the Z again in the scene he mentions Dry Ragamuffin to see another Strong Badman comic, starring a character that resembles Bubs.

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • This cartoon is based on the DNA Evidence running gag that appeared in six straight emails, beginning with strong badathlon.
  • "Old maid" is a term used to disparagingly describe an older, unmarried woman.
  • Ragamuffin is a term used to describe a child wearing shabby clothing.

[edit] Trivia

[edit] Remarks

  • In the Marzipan and Homsar scene from strong badathlon, when Marzipan says "...had been tampered with," the whatsit covered The Cheat doesn't appear in the background.
  • Strong Sad is able to write in his notebook without any problems, but in rough copy, he had trouble writing a mere sentence on a single page of the same notebook.
  • The puncture that Strong Bad makes is well above the bottom of the green apple bottle, but all the liquid leaks out.
  • Homestar's trenchcoat seems to be unaffected by gravity, as it remains stiff and straight even as he bends over.
  • Coach Z seems to go over by Strong Bad after Homestar, but if he went up to Strong Bad while he was still using the bar graph (which refers to from work and Sbemail 169 Deleted Scene), then he would have to have gone before Homestar.
  • In actuality, the DNA evidence was not tampered with, as is said in strong badathlon and unnatural, as it was stolen.
  • When Bubs goes back to get Strong Bad's Green Apple snow cone, the green apple flavoring is the only actual flavor, as the others just say "Blue", "Red", and "Purple".
  • "So I sprung into action" is incorrect grammar. It should be "So I sprang into action".

[edit] Goofs

  • The smoke from the office only wafts in the first few shots before Strong Bad speaks his account of what happened at Bubs' Concession Stand.

[edit] Fixed Goofs

  • When this toon was first released, when Marzipan was walking up to Bubs' Concession Stand, she was not wearing her toga. This was fixed less than an hour after the toon was released.
  • Originally, in the "Big Toons" section of the TV Time Toons Menu, the description read, "Strong Sad gets to the bottom of all this mess," while the description on the New Stuff menu omitted the word "all".

[edit] Inside References

  • This is another mention of Mountain Dew.
  • Homestar's mispronunciation of DNA and Coach Z's "mild mannered alter-ego" are references to Dan.
  • The box Strong Sad pulls the DNA evidence out of in the last scene is from Strong Sad's Secret Styles.
  • Strong Bad's glasses, the line "Looks like I'm gonna have to jump!", and the background music in the respective scenes are from the Dangeresque series of films.
  • Marzipan's response to the cost of "an arm and a leg" and the way the arm of Homestar's coat moves as he takes a drink are references to their lack of visible arms and, in her case, legs.
  • Homsar mentions pants.
  • Coach Z's janitor cart reads "JANITATOR", similar to Trogdor the Burninator.
  • The vacuum cleaner and Coach Z's line about cleaning up lasagna are references to Sbemail 169 Deleted Scene.
  • The text on the Lappy implies credit card fraud.
  • Homestar seems to think the DNA evidence tasted like whatsit.
  • Bubs-keep, Strong Badagement and janitator are portmanteaus.
  • Strong Bad says he "was [that] close to finding out if Strong Sad was part elephant".
  • Bubs' saying that the sno-cone sold like "hotcake" is an example of singular instead of plural.
  • Strong Bad stealing the change out of Marzipan's couch is a reference to loose coins.
  • The flavors of the snow cones at the concession stand are another instance of color flavored food.
  • Homestar describes the glass as "a tall, cool glass", similar to the piemonade Strong Bad mentions in other days.

[edit] Real-World References

  • The entire structure of the toon, with a detective interviewing several people when he ultimately is the culprit, is a nod to film noir, a style of American film that peaked in the late 1940s and early 1950s.
  • The opening titles and ending in which Strong Sad laughs maniacally and appears in a window, on a roof, and behind the cleaning supplies is a direct reference to Killer Bob, mysterious antagonist of Twin Peaks. The character was created because of a happy accident in which crew member Frank Silva was caught in frame during shooting of the pilot, thus explaining the unwieldy positions in which Strong Sad appears.
  • The music in the background of the opening sequence is an homage to Angelo Badalamenti's music for the American television show Twin Peaks.

[edit] Commentary Transcript

(Commentary by: Mike Chapman, Matt Chapman)

MIKE: Finally, Matt, we get to find out what's up with this DNA evidence.

MATT: Yeah. It's, uh— this is sort of a first. We... we like to not have a lot of continuity in our cartoons, so they can all sort of be stand-alone. Uh... but, uh, we decided to go ahead and, uh— This started as just a joke, right? As just a one-off joke.

MIKE: Yeah, there was one. And then the second time, the second email, we thought, "Oh, we should say something about the DNA evidence! About how he tampered with the..." And then we did it five weeks in a row, or five emails in a row.

MATT: And then—

MIKE: Decided to use all that, and then base the cartoon around those weird little... snippets.

MATT: Yeah. I think after the third one we started talking about making a cartoon like this.

MIKE: Yeah.

MATT: You can tell Melissa's got a cold here. She's a little snotty.

MIKE: {laughs}

MATT: So, since Strong Sad is the culprit of all this, Mike. Um...

MIKE: Spoiler alert! Spoiler alert! Matt just told you who the culprit is! Go ahead, go ahead. We're cool, now.

MATT: Okay. Uh... highlight— this is all spoken in inviso-text, Mike, so you have to highlight it in order to read it.

MIKE: Oh, right.

MATT: Uh... so, why is he doing this? Is he just doing it to— to sort of find out who... Oh, 'cause he's trying to find out who got the DNA evidence?

MIKE: I don't remem— Don't ask me, man!

MATT: {laughs} Did we come up with that side of it?

MIKE: It was hard enough— {laughing} It was hard enough trying to connect all that stuff together. If it didn't quite work out, that's... not my fault.

MATT: Look! Bubs has snow cones again!

MIKE: {laughs}

MATT: Like from... a long, long time ago. The jumping jack cartoon, maybe. {as Strong Sad} Were you loose-leafin' it with that piece of make-out? {back to his regular voice} Oh, it's Dangeresque, Mike! {pronounced Dangeresque with a hard G sound}

MIKE: Is it really Dangeresque, or is it just Strong Bad with the glasses on?

MATT: Yeah, or is it just Strong Bad's imagination? {pause} He would never order something that cool if he wasn't Dangeresque.

MIKE: That's true.

MATT: So he's gotta be makin' that up. {pause} Some... 3dfx drivers, Mike, on his disk there.

MIKE: Is that what it was?

MATT: Yeah. He'd just upgraded to a 3dfx card.

MIKE: {laughs}

MATT: He can play the original Tomb Raider, maybe. That was the first game I ever played with my 3dfx card. {pause} This is a, uh... a little first here. Uh...

MIKE: How so?

MATT: When Homestar picks up this glass and you actually see his—

MIKE: Evidence that his arms are invisible.

MATT: Right.

MIKE: And not that he's telekinetic.

MATT: Yeah. That he actually has arms, but they're invisible. {pause} I love that "gross towel" immediately equals Coach Z.

MIKE: {over Matt's previous line} Instantly means Coach Z. {pause} That towel— Coach Z and gross towels— it's been a pretty recent— in the last year or so, there's been a few references to—

MATT: Yeah.

MIKE: —towels hasn't there?

MATT: Yeah.

MIKE: And Coach Z?

MATT: I don't know if I want to watch The Adventures of Damp Towel Man.

MIKE: I like his catch phrase!

MATT: His catch phrase is pretty great. {pause} Um... DANG! Look at that cleaner!

MIKE: {laughs}

MATT: That's a great cleaner. {pause} That was, uh... I was trying to think of— There's some rap song, and I don't even remember what it is, but it was like, "We large like them elephants! We ain't leavin' no eviDENCE!" So...

MIKE: {laughs} "...no eviDENCE!"

MATT: That's what Homestar was talkin' about. {pause} Uh... it helped, making this cartoon, that I had just been— I had just rewatched the original, season one and two of Twin Peaks. The theme song is very heavily Twin Peaks, uh... influenced, I think.

MIKE: We just got to see Strong Bad's boots off his feet.

MATT: Yeah.

MIKE: That's another first.

MATT: Though I think— I feel like this DNA evidence cartoon is actually— makes a little more sense and ties things up a little more neatly than Twin Peaks did.

MIKE: {over Matt's last line, laughing} ...than Twin Peaks!

MATT: {as Strong Sad} Boo! I don't like food anymore! {back to his regular voice} Where is this office, Mike?

MIKE: Uh, it's— That is— It's upstairs... uh, above... Bubs's I think.

MATT: {laughing} Really? There's an upstairs... apartment above Bubs's? {pause} Smiley Strong Sad. Maniacal-laughing Strong Sad, also. These are all rare— rare occurrences.

MIKE: Oh, Strong Sad was there, in all these places... watching.

MATT: He's not very careful, Mike. He forgot that someone was standing one foot away from him. {pause} Ooh.

MIKE: Uh oh.

MATT: Homsar... wins.

MIKE: {laughs}

[edit] Fun Facts

  • Matt refers to Strong Sad's "I don't like food anymore" line said in 2 years.
  • Matt's comment about "inviso-text" refers to a policy on many internet forums where information that spoils the ending of a movie, tv show, or video game can be formatted in a highlight the same color as the font, meaning in order to read it, users have to manually select the text with their mouse.
  • Matt talks about Tomb Raider, a video game series focusing around the main character, Lara Croft, and her work as a treasure seeking archaeologist, in the same vein as Indiana Jones.
  • The rap song Matt is referring to is "Can't Stop No Playa" by Da Organization.
