Meanwhile, in this guy's mouth...

From the Teen Girl Squad Issue 3 DVD commentary:

STRONG BAD: Umm, I like a lot of the transitions I do, like "meanwhile at the thrift store"...
MIKE: Yeah, where you just kinda put it written on somebody's teeth, maybe; Battle of the Bands—
STRONG BAD: {simultaneously} Yeah.
MIKE: —I think, was written on people's teeth...
STRONG BAD: Well, usually it's pretty gross. Close-ups.

In Teen Girl Squad episodes, a scene transition will often be marked by a caption reading where and/or when the next scene takes place. The text often appears on a close-up of a person in some form, accompanied by Strong Bad shouting the text. These screens also appear in regular toons, albeit more normal-looking, without the Teen Girl Squad-style close-ups.


[edit] Appearances

[edit] Teen Girl Squad

  • Teen Girl Squad Issue 3 — As the scene changes from three of the girls getting lethal spring rolls to What's Her Face at a thrift store, the screen shows a close-up of a fat man holding a "meanwhile, at the THRIFT STORE" sign in his mouth.
  • Teen Girl Squad Issue 8
    • When the scene changes from the girls at school discussing their band to their first band practice, the screen shows a frail old man carrying what appears to be a large rock on his back, reading "after school".
    • The scene changes from the band practice to the Battle of the Bands with a close-up of a mouth with "BATTLE OF THE BANDS!!!" written on the teeth, surrounded by stubble, a small nose, and a large chin.
  • Teen Girl Squad Issue 10 — During the transition to The Ugly One's birthday party, there is a close-up of a mouth with mustache stubble and a soul patch smoking a cigarette with "AT THE PARTY!" written on it.
  • Teen Girl Squad Issue 11 — As the scene changes from So and So's summer job to the other three at summer camp, a close-up of a man's head is seen with "MEANWHILE at summer camp" written on it. He has large eyebrows and a disgruntled expression.
  • Homestar Ruiner Teen Girl Squad — The transition to the basketball game is marked with a beefy arm reading "LATER, AT THE GAME".
  • Teen Girl Squad Issue 15 — The scene shifts to the girls' prom with a close-up of a large-lipped man's mustache with "At The Prom." scrawled on it in white.
  • @StrongBadActual Tweet (18 Aug 2016) — Puppet Strong Bad sings The System is Down, and during the "DOOJ", a Teen Girl Squad drawing of a hairy arm tattooed "DOOJ" appears. The arm appears to be resting on a table with a big knife and a beer mug, holding a cigarette.

[edit] Other

5 minutes later...
