TGS-esque Voices?

This might just be me, but the teen kid and gravely mum/mom voices sound a bit like characters from Teen Girl Squad. Do you think they did voices like that on purpose? Because the Mom sounds sorta like The Ugly One, or one of the other members of the Squad. --Gerkuman 09:45, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

Both TGS and the commentary were done by Strong Bad, so they are bound to sound similar. Loafing 09:43, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
I was thinking that the teenage boy voice sounded like teenage Strong Bad from highschool. I don't think they're intentional references though. Trey56 09:44, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
But there is a chance that TBC chose that style of voices for it. (Croaky, high Stongbad voices) Is that qulaification for a fact or is it too much of a stretch? --Gerkuman 09:49, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
My interpretation is that Strong Bad was choosing from his repertoire of croaky voices to make fun of the guy in the picture, not necessarily trying to draw reference to the TGSers. (I may be wrong though.) Trey56 09:52, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

Transcript Uncertainties

There were a couple lines in the transcript that I wasn't sure about:

STRONG BAD: Yes. Thank you. Tonight.

Could this be "Good night"?

STRONG BAD: What's this guy smilin' about? {in a mocking voice} Oh, yeah. I just got promoted to the three-foot-wide cubicle. Now I can fit four to three post-its on my wall. Hey Doogen, you stayin' after tonight for the LAN party?

I'm really not sure about these, especially the Local Area Network party... Trey56 09:56, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

I'd say that It 's more likely to be goodnight. But I think the LAN party thing shows up SB's lack of computer knowlege, rather than a mistranscribe. --Gerkuman 09:59, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
Yeah, "Good night." makes more sense contextually...I just had trouble hearing the "g" sound. Go ahead and change it if you're confident in what you hear. :) Trey56 10:04, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
I think the first one is probably "Tonight". He said it a lot in local news, and that's what it sounds like to me. Shwoo 10:09, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
Drat, it can work both ways. --Gerkuman 10:11, 6 November 2006 (UTC)
It's "tonight" from local news. It's a hard reference.
STRONG BAD: Good evening and tonight.
STRONG BAD: Yes, well, thank you, tonight.

STRONG BAD: {commentary} ...So, if you're a gotta say "tonight" as much as possible.
MIKE: Mmhmm.
STRONG BAD: That's what I learned.
MIKE: Well, you say it a lot in this email.
STRONG BAD: Yeah, you're supposed to. Because you have to remind people, or they'll think it's the afternoon news, and they'll turn it off. Nobody wants to watch that crap.
MIKE: No, just the evening news.
STRONG BAD: Yeah. Evening—
MIKE: "Tonight."
STRONG BAD: Tonight. The tonight news. We should have called it that.

{simultaneously, after newscaster Strong Bad says "Yes. Well, thank you. Tonight."}
MIKE: There, he said... There, he did... So, Bubs... Bubs is...
STRONG BAD: See? Because, see, someone was about to change the channel, they'd be like, "Oh, this is the—this is noonday. I don't want to watch noonday." Oh! Yeah...

STRONG BAD: {After newscaster Strong Bad says "tonight" again} ...See? Once again, that was, like, five more viewers—
MIKE: That doesn't even make any sense.
STRONG BAD: {laughs} What do you mean?
MIKE: I mean, you're just saying "tonight."
STRONG BAD: I s—I kept reiterating that it is tonight!
MIKE: And you never told us what the World in Crisis was about.
STRONG BAD: That's to get you to come back tomorrow night and watch.

Doogen sounds like a good enough guess to me. It's probably his last name. LAN party, definitely. Geeky people at the office have LAN parties. Just like me and people from my workplace. —BazookaJoe 15:37, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

Mario and the KOT

I put this fun fact in, but I'll admit it's a bit of a stretch:

  • The Mario costume in the background of one of the pictures may be a reference to the King of Town, who dressed up as Mario in Pumpkin Carve-nival.

What do you guys think? Keep, or is it too far a stretch?

  • The Al Roker losing a lot of weight in regards to Strong Sad also is too much of a stretch. It's just a skinnier guy dressed up as SS, just like the above is just a guy dressed as Mario standing next to a guy dressed like HSR.
We don't note references that are made by other people as references. TBC didn't make a Mario reference, the submitter of the photo did. So I say it's unnotable. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 15:35, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

Not Necessarily

To me, it sounds like Homestar is saying "Not necessary", which would make more sense in the context. --Color Printer 14:04, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

"Necessarily" makes perfect sense. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 15:36, 6 November 2006 (UTC)

Missing Picture

Has anyone noticed that when you scroll your mouse over the fan costumes '06 button in the holiday section you see a picture of a Homestar costume in the preview box and it's not in the cartoon.Flamer8965 14:52, 6 November 2006 (UTC)


Is it just me or is it really the Quake logo on strong bads mask on pic 13? User:Cyberdemon 7:03am, 7 Nov 2006
