STRONG BAD: {singing} Do do do do, email me some words, doo-doo, some different words.

{Reading email}
Hey Strong Bad,

I think you should make Homestar say stupid stuff, his voice is hilarious!

Kevin Grumbles.

{typing} Uh, you don't really have to MAKE Homestar say stupid stuff Grumbles {Strong Bad just mumbles every time he types "Grumbles"}, that's the guy's bread and butter. Or at least his, uh, cracker and mustard. No, the REAL challenge is to get Homestar to say something intelligent. If I can do that, then you owe me a batch of your special Grumblecakes. And if I fail, then I'll quit stealing the bricks from your house, one by one. Deal? Deal.

{Strong Bad goes to get up from his chair and Homestar Runner is leaning over his shoulder.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {quietly} Hi, Strong Bad.

STRONG BAD: {surprised} Ah, geez! Homestar!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {not standing on one foot} Strong Bad, do you notice anything different about me today?

STRONG BAD: Um, you broke into my house?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: No I'm always doing that.

STRONG BAD: {apparently unperturbed} Okay, what?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {standing on one foot} I'm standing on one foot!

STRONG BAD: Yeah, great. Look, I'll give you half a Grumblecake if you can say something intelligent.


STRONG BAD: It's like a little cake with some, like, steam and sugar.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: No, no, the other one.

STRONG BAD: Oh, "intelligent"?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yeah, yeah, intellivision.

STRONG BAD: You know ... something smart.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: I think I can do that. What's in it for me?

STRONG BAD: {annoyed} Half a Grumblecake!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, right. Okay, here goes--

STRONG BAD: No wait, put this stuff on.. it'll add to the illusion.

{Strong Bad gives Homestar Runner a white lab coat, black-rimmed glasses with masking tape, and a test tube.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Whoa, check me out, Strong Bad, I look a-smart!

STRONG BAD: You sure do, stupid. Now say something.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: And I'm standing on one foot!

STRONG BAD: {urging} Come on, say something smart! You can do it!


STRONG BAD: Uh, that's pretty good. Keep going!

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Science again! I said science again!

STRONG BAD: Let's move away from science. Try math.


STRONG BAD: Okay, this isn't going--


STRONG BAD: {groans} I need to get my hands on some of them Grumblecakes! Maybe if I employ a little reverse psychologies.. If I ask a stupid enough question, I'll get an intelligent answer! {clears throat} I say, there, Homestar, butt's twelve by pies?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ooh, yes! I got Strong Bad to say something stupid! {triumphantly} The Grumblecakes will be mine!

(Homestar runs off.}

STRONG BAD: What?! What the crap just happened?! Is it possible that I was just outsmarted by Homestar Runner?! {typing and shouting} I'LL GET YOU KEVIN GRUMBLES!!!

{The Cheat enters with a tray of The Cheatcakes.}

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Get that mess outta here! I don't want none o' those Cheatcakes! {Smacks the tray of The Cheatcakes out of The Cheat's hands}

THE CHEAT: {angry The Cheat noises}

{The Cheat exits dejectedly.}

STRONG BAD: {apologetically} No, wait, The Cheat, come back! {The Cheat comes back} Will you, um, fix me some.. mustard crackers?

THE CHEAT: {angry The Cheat noises}

{The Cheat exits again.}

{The Paper comes down.}
