Slitted— {indicates above shape} —rellipse. {indicates below shape} Okay. And now we go down here on the side; {draws a diagonal line away from the left corner} flare it out a little bit. And now we're gonna do the bottom of the shorts with a series of northwise meeps. Here we go. {stars drawing the bottom, rightward from the diagonal line} Meep number one... 's a tiny meep... {draws a small tent shape up and down, interrupting the line} middle-sized meep; meep number two... {draws a larger tent shape in the middle of the line} and teeny-teeny meep number three... {draws an almost-indiscernible small tent shape near the end of the line} for the other side. {closes off the shorts with another diagonal line from the right side of the first shape} Okay, now, don't forget the elastic waistband... {draws a line across the shorts just below the waist} we're gonna zigzag it on out... {fills in the waistband with uneven zigzags} Oh man. Can see that stuff diggin' in, makin' that little impression in your skin, you know what I'm sayin'? And don't forget... the tag. {adds a small tag inside the waist} In here. Alright. Now, let's see, little... smirky-smile. {draws an small, outward-facing curve at the top-right corner of the shorts} For a pocket. And let's not forget... the seventies stripes. {adds two vertical stripes down the left side, then starts filling them in with zigzags} Over here. There we go, juggajuggajuggajuggajuggajuh...

This is gonna look really messed up for a little bit here.

STRONG BAD: Okay, here we go. Everybody: gourd it out, all the way down from one leg. {draws a large, bulbous shape down from the left pant leg} You got it? And on the other leg— {draws a second one from the other leg} gouuurd it out. You know what I'm sayin'? Okay, stick with me, stick with me. {draws a quick shape on the bottom of the right bulb} Put a little footsie on the bottom. {draws a similar one on the left} Footsie on the bottom here. Okay? Okay? And, okay, we're gonna do like— {the video speeds up briefly as Strong Bad draws three diamond shapes on the right bulb, then the left bulb} argyle socks... three diamonds... {starts drawing a series of vertical dots down from the left pant leg, followed by a larger one, to represent a lamp chain} And, we do a little dotty-dotty-dotty-dotty... chain pole. {does the same on the other side} Dotty-dotty-dotty-dotty... chain pole. Okay? {draws a squiggly line out from the bottom of the right bulb} And no, this isn't a tail, it's a power cord. {adds a power cord head on the end} And comin' out of this one: {draws another squiggly power cord on the left} not a tail. It's a power cord.
