Pretend Reference??

Strong Bad ordering a "Chateau Pretend" may be a reference to François-René de Chateaubriand, a French author/political figure from the 18-19th century. Strong bad uses the name in relation to food, and Chateaubriand was known for involvement in culinary arts.

I think you're making the reference unnecessarily complicated. The way I see it, Chateau Pretend is a pretend wine. Kahteh 11:06, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
Lies. All lies. Clearly I'm the only one who knows how it all went down. Cast your mind back to car, when Homestar gave a shout-out to Lemon Pretend. Whilst we can safely assume that within the fictional universe of Free Country, USA, Lemon Pretend is a type of pie, a search on Google turns back no recipies or even references to the existence of a Lemon Pretend pie (outside of the Homestar Runner reference, of course). It is through this method that I have come to the conclusion that the reference here is not a Real-World one, but one of the Inside demographic, and, as such, refers to the Strong Bad Email that usually goes by the name of "car". Thank you for your time. --Ppk01 12:27, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Name that Tune

Gah... The tune the whale plays is extraordinarily familiar. I just can't place it, for the life of me. It's very frustrating. --DorianGray 10:14, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

It sounds really familar to me to. It's really annoying. Shwoo 10:19, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
It reminds me a LOT of the music from one of the towns in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door. --TotalSpaceshipGirl3 10:36, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
I think I've got it! It's the first few notes of the music that plays in Koopa Village in the original Paper Mario! Nailed it! Compare the two. --TotalSpaceshipGirl3 10:50, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
Those two don't sound that similar to me... --phlip TC 11:04, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
The key may be a bit off. The tune seems similar to me, though. I very may well be tone-deaf. --TotalSpaceshipGirl3 11:05, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Here's another idea that was proposed. Trey56 13:14, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

The tune that the drive-thru whale plays appears to be the first few notes from the theme song for the television show Night Court.

After listening to the theme frm Night Court, I think they're similar, but different. Trey56 13:23, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

I'm pretty sure it's from a game, possibly one on this site? (doubt it) - Quolnok 13:26, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

Distorted speaker

The lines Strong Bad hears as "Sever your leg", I hear that the speaker is saying "Serve to your right", or something similar... and, like Shwoo, I hear "seventh window". The others I hear the same as SB, but I wouldn't be surprised if I'm mishearing any or all of these... what do you think? --phlip TC 10:20, 19 March 2007 (UTC)

I distinctly heard "seventh window" too, even before there was a transcript. I stand with "sever your leg", though. --DorianGray 10:21, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
I can't really hear "serve to your right". There's no t sound. Shwoo 10:25, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
It's confirmed in the New Stuff section. The description is "Sever your leg, please, sir." --TotalSpaceshipGirl3 11:13, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
Not really, the toon description there could be quoting SB, it was one of the funny lines in the toon after all... Oh well, {waits patiently for QotW}. --phlip TC 11:20, 19 March 2007 (UTC)
