Costume Sharing

Another costume feature was planned for SBCG4AP: Trading outfits with other people playing the game. This was ultimately cut, but not before dialogue was recorded for it.

In the english.langdb file are internal directions for The Cheat's lines, used by Matt Chapman to give the little guy the right intonations. Find out what the yellow anvil is really saying!

No thanks, I've already eaten. Intended to be heard when using the Onion on Strong Bad, but the game gives a generic error line instead.
74496768
No really, I'm full.
74507776
This coupon can only be redeemed by Bubs' Concession Stand. An unused error message for using the coupon on anything but Bubs.

I'm drawin' with my map now, addin' to the world now, bendin' space 'n' time now... Strong Bad was supposed to say these couplets when added new locations to his map.
75102464
Awesome!
75102592
Now let's see, the vanishing point should be...
75103744
There! Genius!
75103872
Notice the artist's attention to sweet deals and awesome styles...
75104000
Voila!
76488064
Well, that was a complete waste of time. These lines would be used after using the map to go to the location you're already in.
The game simply prevents you from doing this, playing none of these quips.
76488192
Whew, that was tiring.
76488320
Annnnd, we're back.
78968448
I don't think I should wear my Homestar Costume here. It's too confining and, um, clumsy. A just-in-case error message for using the costume in a confined space.

Hey Strong Bad, I've got a whole mess of Total Load waiting for you over at my concession stand.
Come pick it up before it eats a hole on my counter. Stay peaceable, Bubs!
This is the original confirmation e-mail for Total Load. This can be seen in early clips of the game.
75369728
Oh yeah. I almost forgot about that stuff.
75369856
I really should go pick that up when I don't have anything better to do. Which is most of the time. This is the message for opening the e-mail subsequent times.
75372928
Dear Strong Bad the Great, How do you tie your mask without any fingers?
Confused in Peoria, Christine B.
Another alternate e-mail. The final message is as follows:
"Hey Strtong Bad, What's the deal with the little tie-things on the backa your mask? -Christine B"

Strong Bad's response is drastically different; Instead of insulting C.B., he actually answers the question.
75373056
That's a dang good question! How DO I tie my mask?
75373184
Strong Sad
You make me do it!
75373312
Oh yeah. Another Strong Bad mystery solved.
75373440
I'm glad we got THAT cleared up. This is the message for opening the e-mail subsequent times.
75526400
Not dancing? At some point, the developers decided that it was funnier if Coach Z liked mopey, depressing music.
75526528
Coach Z
Oh no, Strong Bad. I tried that sensitive white boy music once... and boy do I look bad in eye makeup!
76057600
I'd better not... If I make this hole any bigger Bubs might get his surprisingly dainty ankles caught in it. One of several messages meant to be used after trying to use the shovel on an already dug hole.
The subtitles don't match up with the actual spoken dialogue.

My bones are brittle, crunchy, and covered in peanut butter!

The Track

My superior Strong Bad brain tells me that this is marks the start of a race of some sort. This would be used when clicking on the starting line before the race starts, but it can't be clicked. Oh well.
74105728
Hello there, me. Talking to Homestar in the locker room while wearing the Homestar Costume would produce this dialogue.
Unfortunately, it's impossible to talk to him in the full costume since to steal his costume, he needs to get in the shower.
You can't talk to him in the shower, and he never comes out until you leave the locker room, at which point he flees the area.
74105856
Homestar
Why hello there Homestar. You're looking very proportional today.
74105856
Aren't you surprised to see me?
74106112
Homestar
No. I talk to myself all the time.
74106240
Hello again. Talking to him again in the Homestar Costume gives another short conversation.
74106368
Homestar
Hello, Homestar. You rule.
74106496
No, I don't. I suck. I mean you suck. I mean we su- Aw, forget it.

Homestar
That's right, Jerry! Two Homestars for the price of one! Head in the game! Diaper down!
74107136
Homestar- And one more conversation for the two Homestars. Those guys are weird.
74107264
Homestar
Shhh! Take back the night! Taste the rainbow! Bring the noise! Fight the bear!
74107392
Well, this is going nowhere.
76066816
If Zola Budd doesn't get you, this hole sure will... Clicking on the dug hole should produce a unique line, but the dialogue was never properly linked up.
76069120
I'd rather not... all this digging is really doing a number on my lats... and quads... and, um, cloits. Another unused "use shovel on hole" line.
79001472
I may have gone a little bit overboard. Only a total moron would think that Pom-Pom's scarfing down
THAT much Total Load.
Clicking on Pom Pom / Strong Mad's locker after dumping Total Load should produce these lines.
Instead, clicking just closes the lockers back up.
79001984
We've replaced Strong Mad's usual sweetener with Total Load Total Body Fitness powder...let's see
if anyone notices.

Homestar
Whatcha doin' with that battle axe taped to a hockey stick, Strong Bad?
According to the game's dlg files, the flashback to Strong Bad ruining the party was supposed to be voice only.
Since it was changed to an actual scene, and Telltale didn't want to add this object to the game, this line was cut.
73852672
Nom nom nom nom...<burp!> Yummy! After receiving the doormat chocolates, Marzipan was originally going to eat them. She just takes them instead.
The subtitiles have a burp sound effect that's not in the actual audio.

Bubs
...Oh, sausages, like I don't got enough to deal with right now...
These are lines for Strong Bad approaching an angry Bubs, but they're impossible to hear.
After insulting Bubs, he goes back to his normal, entrepreneurial self. Bubs is a pretty chill guy.
75075840
Bubs
Hey there, chump!
75075968
Bubs
Buy something or I'll sit on your cat!
75087360
Bubs
Yeah, you just keep on walkin'...
These are the equivalent lines for walking past an irritated Bubs.
75087488
Bubs
Don't wanna sell anything to him, anyway...
75087616
Bubs
-- Walkin' around like his whatzit don't stank...

Can't dig any deeper into Strong Badia without getting a permit from the Tire. > USE SHOVEL ON HOLE
I don't understand you.

Strong Bad's comment for wearing the beret (which is not available in this episode) uses the same audio, but the subtitles are from an earlier draft:

Early ...uh... would you like some french bread? French fries? French... toast? ...I didn't really rehearse this role very well.
Final Oh, Mademoiselle! Oh, Cosmopolitan! Oh, Elle! Oh, Vogue! Oh, how you say... Redbook?

K.o.T. Castle

There's a gross sticky trail of gross slime oozing out of that gross vent up there...
Gross.
The drain pipe below the castle's vent was originally a slime trail. Probably changed to make the solution more obvious.
74025472
That's like the King of Town's chin on all-you-can-eat enchilada night...bleugh.
74026496
Get plunged, slime trail! The solution's still the same, though, it's just that using a plunger on slime is less obvious than using it on a drain pipe.
75624448
I don't think this insanely tall stack of waffles is gonna hide me. A reference to an object that was cut from the game entirely. Read on for more information!
76045312
I think it's better to let sleeping hedges lie... Like the various holes, each hedge sculpture has a unique line when trying to shear them again.
This is the only line that's not properly hooked up.
76048000
I'd better not. If I dig this hole any deeper, I might hit the King's septic tank.
Also known as the Poopsmith's room.
Stop trying to dig in holes already. It's just not happening.
79149184
Strong Mad Night Security and Bloody Pulp Beater. Available on Saturdays for parties! Clicking on Strong Mad while in the vent should produce these lines...if only he was clickable.
79149312
Man, I could hock a nice one right on to Strong Mad's shoulder plateau from up here.
79188608
This must be where the Poopsmith keeps his special titanium-tipped shovels locked up...
for those crusty hard-to-smith piles of whatsit.
Another line for clicking something -- the shovel case -- that cannot be clicked. Why, Telltale, why?!

The early icons use a red border and are 128x128, not 256x256, images.

Unused Text

On the Wii version, the .ttarch files are contained in a folder that has this following folder name.

C/\Telltale\Projects\Homestar101\Pack

This is probably a folder path on one of Telltale Games' computers.
