[edit] Marzipan's Greeting

MARZIPAN: Hi, this is Marzipan. I'm currently drowning in the abyss, but please leave me a message anyway. {beep}

[edit] Message 6

THE KING OF TOWN: {angrily} Well, well, well, Miss Marzithang, any idea why Strong Bad's been goin' around calling me a "stankwad", or why the Bubs keeps referring to me as a "wad in the grass"? Hmm? Any idea? Maybe because you told everybody that my middle name is Wad?! That was supposed to be our secret! I thought we had a deal. Well, don't blame me if all the sudden your questionable voluntary surgery becomes public knowledge! The Wad is out!

[edit] Message 5

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh hello, yes, middle of our conversation? Yeah. Mm-hmm. Yeah, I just met with him. Oh yeah, he's real famous. Rich. Rich with money. How many? Five? Five's good. {whispering} Psst! Sorry, Marzipan. I had to perpetrate like I was talking, {normal volume} on account of this hot blonde thing walked by. Purple dress, broomstick style. Oh yeah, you're jealous. Yeah, what? No, he's half robot.

[edit] Message 4

BUBS: Hey Marzipan, it's the Bubs. Say, uh, do you know any other women around here? I mean, you're not exactly my type, and I need somebody to go to the movies with. It's getting desperate! I'll take anything at this point— lady duck, lady pine cone, lady pillow. I gotta go to the movies with somebody! So if you know of any kind of lady item, put in a good word for ol' Bubs. And tell 'em they'll get 10% off at the concession stand! {quickly, as the following words appear onscreen} Discount will not be honored!

[edit] Message 3

COACH Z: {with hip-hop beat playing in background} Hey, yo, Marz-ay! Coach Z, all up in the stujo. Just cut my new record, want you to be a sassy high-pitched background singer on this new track! Maybe sing a-like: "Word, I'm out!" Or maybe like we sampled you from an old '70s disca tape, and you say: "You ain't the type of man that you used to be!" Basically want to just get you up in the stujo, which is kind of a cardboard box, with a micoraphone in it, not plugged in. Uh... maybe like, disregard... that last part. I'm out, peace, love!

[edit] Message 2

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Uh, he says you're a face. Uh, a facewich. Like a face witch, like rides a broomstick? Or a facewich like between two pieces of bread?

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: You're a facewich and blow up your house.

THE CHEAT: {frustrated The Cheat noise}

STRONG BAD: Your nose! Blow up your nose.

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Epsom salt?! The Cheat, are you sure that's the direction you wanna go with this prank call?

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises, gnawing noises}

STRONG BAD: And now, you're just gnawing on the phone. Gimme that! {gnawing noises stop} I'll show you how it's done. {quickly} Marzipan, this is Dean Prankcaller from the You're Gross Institute calling to ask you to come speak at our graduation ceremony. If you're interested, please walk into the bathroom and stare at your gross face until you make yourself puke. Thank you, the end, very much. {normally} Now that's a prank call! {more gnawing noises} Ugh...

[edit] Message 1

QUESTIONABLE SURGEON: Mmmmmm yes, hello, Miss Marzipan. This is your questionable surgeon. We were just calling to ask if we could use the before and after photos from your {photos appear; the "before" photo shows Marzipan with a large nose and the "after" photo shows her as usual} questionable voluntary surgery in one of our advertisements {pronounced as "ad-VER-tiss-ments"}. Yes, that's right, I pronounced it "ad-VER-tiss-ments".

[edit] Easter Eggs

"I'm having a great time!"
  • Click on the number display after the final message to see Bubs at the movies.
{Bubs is at the movies with Lord Quackingstick, who has a blonde wig. Part of Strong Bad's head is visible in another seat.}
BUBS: I gotta tell ya, Lady Quackingstick, I'm having a great time at the movies!
STRONG BAD: {as Lady Quackingstick, in a sultry voice} Quack, quack!

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • Epsom salt, or magnesium sulfate, is a chemical compound with a variety of uses.

[edit] Trivia

  • This answering machine has a new loading screen, showing a corner of Marzipan's table rather than the old spinning Homestar Runner logo.

[edit] Remarks

  • The Main Page, toons links and the cartoon itself were added some time before the page was made, so users were met with a "404'd" message for the first few hours after the update. However, it was viewable by looking at the Flash file.
  • "Republic of Wad" was mentioned one week earlier as a country of manufacture of unlicensed merchandise in licensed.
  • Bubs seems to have elbows again, as seen in the Easter egg at the end. In recent appearances, Bubs' arms have been drawn without elbows and instead have been animated as a single object, giving his arms a tentacle-like appearance.
  • The buttons on the answering machine can still be pressed even while the before and after images are blocking them.
  • Advertisements is actually pronounced ad-VER-tis-ments in most English-speaking countries.
  • Marzipan has previously shown the ability to understand The Cheat's language, so Strong Bad translating serves no purpose to her.

[edit] Goofs

[edit] Fixed Goofs

  • When the toon was released, the Toons menu listed this toon as being released in 2007; this was changed to 2008 later that day.
