[edit] Transcript

{DVD intro: Here is a little cartoon we made to kick-off the 2006 Flashforward Conference in Seattle.}

{A podium is seen labeled "Podium Excellens". The audience is chatting amongst themselves. A spotlight pops open on the podium. Homestar begins rising up to the podium while making an elevator sound effect.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Voooooooooooooooo-ka-chuck. Ladies and gentlemen! {Squinting at the audience} Or... Gentlemen and, like... two ladies! Welcome, to the 2006 Flashback show! {Confetti appears, full stage lights brighten, and music from The Show plays.}

STRONG BAD: {entering} Whoa, we're doing a flashback show?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Um, I guess so.

STRONG BAD: Awesome! I love a good cop-out! Now, let's take a look back at some of our favorite memories from previous conferences we've done.

{Cut to Strong Bad seated at a table on which the Lappy rests. The Lappy is hooked to a projector. The slide reads, "Celebrating 15 years of PowerPoint dissolves" on a blue striped background with fireworks.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Celebrating fifteen years of the PowerPoint dissolve.

{Strong Bad taps the Lappy's keyboard, and the screen dissolves to images of men shaking hands and several one-dollar bills, labeled "Shake on it!"}


{Strong Bad taps the Lappy's keyboard, and the screen dissolves to a graph titled "Step 4: Money Dollars". The x-axis is Month, and the y-axis is Year. The maximum value toward the end is labeled "The Olympics!"}


{Strong Bad taps the Lappy's keyboard, and the screen dissolves to a page saying "Cleaning Crew Comes on Wednesdays!}

AUDIENCE: {soft applause} Oh yes, yes! ...That time again. {soft applause}

{Cut to a flashback from a different convention, with a banner reading, "WHY TALK TO REAL PEOPLE?"}

STRONG BAD: Welcome, to the 2002 MMOLOTRIPOIPARPG...! Er, what was I just talking about?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {wearing a viking helmet} Nerds. Geeks and nerds.

{Cut to a stage with several logos displayed. The words "Hot Logo Awards" are across the top of the stage.}

STRONG BAD: Ooooh, nice pigtails. {Homestar walks on with a hot logo in front of the top half of his body} Whoa, hey there, booksmarts. You look like the type of logo that appreciates a nice caramel apple-tini.

{Cut back to the Flashback show.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ah, that's some good times.

STRONG BAD: Too bad for you people the good times are over. 'Cuz we're about to stop talking, and some bozo's gonna start. And not the good Bozo either. {They begin to descend from the platform simultaneously.}

BOTH: Vooooooooooooooo.

{The scene holds on the closeup of the podium for a few seconds, and then switches to a wide shot. Strong Bad and Homestar are crouched behind the podium.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Strong Bad, I think this elevator's broke.

{Fade out.}
