[edit] Transcript

FLANSBURGH: {talking to Linnell} So, let's do it four times, then go up an chord, then four times and back down. So it goes 'round and round, and then we go back down.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {says at the same time as Flansburgh, after he says "'Round and round"} 'Round and round. {singing} 'Round and round, with love we'll find a way...

LINNELL: Ok, I'll just follow you.

{They Might Be Giants starts to play}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {singing} Everybody knows it
Everybody knows it
Everybody knows it's true.
Oh yeah.
And work out twice a day.

{Homestar pauses, and Flansburgh stops to play, while Linnell continues.}

FLANSBURGH: {laughs} I feel like I was offset by, like, one beat.

LINNELL: Yeah, me too.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah. Me too. I was followin' your lead. Yeah. And we were both off together. Yeah.

FLANSBURGH: Here we go, one more time!

LINNELL: This is gonna be the one.

{starts to play}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {singing} Everybody knows it
Everybody knows it
Everybody knows it's true.
Oh yeah.
And work out twice a day.
Don't ask me why I said it,
'Cause I already forgot.

{Flansburgh and Linnell speed up gradually}

I can't remember yesterday,
I only remember Steve!
I can't remember Steve now!
{Stops singing, and TMBG stops playing} Now I remember... April! Not a girl, the month! April!
I always talk over the end. Does that ruin them?

LINNELL: No, that was the keeper.

FLANSBURGH: I think our job is done here.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah man, we recorded some solid hits! {"High fives" the Johns, by just moving closer. A high-five sound is heard} Put 'em on wax! Oh! Call the union! Call the Orkin Army.

LINNELL: Textile union, local 802.

FLANSBURGH: All right, so uh...

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Thanks guys. Thanks for coming to my studio. {shifts right to see Matt holding the Homestar puppet. Marty Beller gets up and walks over to Homestar}

LINNELL: {laughs}

BELLER: You've got quite a nice hat.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: No, not anymore, it broke on the plane. {Beller attempts to spin the propeller, but it doesn't.}

LINNELL: Awww...

HOMESTAR RUNNER: ...so this one's made of posterboard. It's supposed to be plastic.

LINNELL: Bummer.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah. It's my buzzer. Usually I ask people to spin my buzzer. {camera starts to shift left, and Flansburgh is seen walking over to Matt and rolling his sleeves up. The camera starts to fade to black.} It's like, it's like telling them to sit on it. {fades out} I'm like, SPIN MY BUZZER! It's how I mouth off.

LINNELL: Does Homestar go in the luggage?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I do. I've been in a duffel bag all morning.

FLANBURGH: That's your signature uh...

{Cut to the end paper.}
