[edit] Transcript

FLANSBURGH: {talking to Linnell} Let's just do it four times, then go up a fourth, and then four times and go back down. Just sort of goes round and round, and ends on the one coming back from the four. Somewhere.

Everybody knows it
Everybody knows it's true.
Oh yeah.
And work out twice a day.

{Homestar pauses, and Flansburgh stop playing, while Linnell continues.}

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

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah. Me too. I was followin' your lead.

FLANSBURGH: Did you feel that?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah. And we were both off together.

FLANSBURGH: I was feeling that, Homestar.

'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.

LINNELL: That was perfect. That—

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Does that ruin them?

LINNELL: That was, uh—that was the keeper.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: That was—okay.

FLANSBURGH: I think our job is done here.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah man, we recorded some solid hits!

FLANSBURGH: High five!

{Homestar "high fives" the Johns, by just moving closer. A high-five sound is heard}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Put 'em on wax!

BELLER: Call the union!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh! Call the union! Call the Orkin Army.

BELLER: Textile union, local 802.

FLANSBURGH: All right, so uh...


FLANSBURGH: Thank you.

LINNELL: Thank you.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: 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 {unintelligible}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Not anymore, my—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, or was it...?

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

FLANBURGH: That's your signature uh...
