Trouper. Not trooper.

People keep changing the transcript. Strong Bad says that Lil' Brudder is "such a trouper." People keep changing it to "trooper." A "trouper" is a reliable, uncomplaining, hardworking person, like Lil' Brudder. It can also refer to a member of an acting troupe, but not here.

A "trooper" originally meant a member of the calvary. From that it came to mean a mounted police officer, and then later a state police officer who operates from his or her car. (Since cars are mounts like horses.)

Lil' Brudder is a "trouper," not a "trooper."

I'll put a note in the transcript. --Upsilon

Trooper. Not trouper.

Check the original.

Yea. It *is* "trooper". See for yourself. -MCSkwayrd


Besides, "trooper" is cited as an alternative spelling for "trouper 2: a person who deals with and persists through difficulty or hardship without complaint" in the Merriam-Webster online dictionary. --Henebry 14:54, 26 March 2008 (UTC)

Crying like we've done before (Declined)

This is the second time a H*R character cries, the first time being in Homestarloween Party.

  • Decline. Unimportant, uninteresting, unacceptable. I don't see any reason to make note of this at all. →evin290 09:47, 13 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Decline. The word "second" is an immediate disqualification for this being a viable item.
  • Decline. Not very fun or interesting. --TheEggman 21:12, 13 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Decline And did you know that "Homsar" is the second e-mail that Strong Bad appears in? Donny vs Universe
  • Decline. Seconding all the declines above. --tomstiff 21:52, 15 Mar 2005 (CST)
  • Decline Though I did post a similar fun fact in Homestarloween Party using the knowledge from this fact. --Joshua 18:49, 18 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Decline And for kids was the second time we see Strong Bad smile, and in virus it is the second email where a Strong Bad's computer explodes. Do you see how boring that can get? Pop tire 21:57, 24 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • D to the Cline Uh... so? Rudeboy87 08:53, 31 Mar 2005 (MST)

D-inclined!-Didn't The Cheat do the same crying in A Decemberween Pageant?

All y'alls (Declined)

"All a y'alls" is taken from sb_email_22.

  • Decline A slight stretch. I don't think Strong Bad said the exact same thing, and probably has said "all a y'alls" In another toon or sbemail. --acekirby13 14:09, 16 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Decline I live in Houston, and I hear "all y'all" about 749 times a day. -- tomstiff
  • Decline Agreed. --Joshua 18:49, 18 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Severe Decline Ya, and he took "Holy Crap" from email 1, and 2, and every other frickin email hes done. BORING! *screen turns blue with white "Boring!" on it*---erson 10:59, 30 Mar 2005 (MST)
  • Diclyne "Taken from?" Hardly. He's just using a common phrase more than once. Rudeboy87 08:55, 31 Mar 2005 (MST)


I'm gonna be a quarterback when I grow up!

Li'l Brudder's remark about throwing for 2,000 yards as an NFL quarterback is only 125 yards a game. A good player can throw twice that.

VERDICT: This item was overwhelmingly declined, 10–2. The votes and arguments have been moved to HRWiki:STUFF/Archive/crying.

Rudy Reference?

Li'l Brudder wants to be a quarterback when he grows up. The movie "Rudy" is a tearjerker about a boy who wants to play football for Notre Dame, even though "his grades were a little low, his athletic skills were poor, and he was only half the size of the other players." IMDb says "But he had the drive and the spirit of 5 people"! Awww. ~AC

2,000 yards

The reference to 2,000 yards being only 125 yards a game seems a bit of a stretch, as LB doesn't say he would do it in one season, but just that he would throw that far, which would suggest to me that he meant he would throw it that far in one go. Silverfish 20:27, 5 Aug 2005 (UTC)

  • Any comments on this? I'm considering deleting it if there is no comment soon. Silverfish 18:06, 7 Sep 2005 (UTC)
I agree with you, but I think you should STUFF it. - Joshua
Ok, I've just STUFFed it. Silverfish 19:54, 7 Sep 2005 (UTC)
Obviously, it was declined. Dang. — talk Bubsty edits 03:18, 28 November 2005 (UTC)

Grammatical Error?

I may be wrong on this, but shouldn't "I, nor anyone else..." be "Neither I, nor anyone else..."? I've always been under the impression that "nor" was only used in the "Neither... nor..." syntax. --Image:SBsig.gifSBLOUNSKCHED! t/c 20:46, 15 December 2006 (UTC)

I believe you're correct. Additionally, the verb in the sentence should be singular because both elements of the compound subject are singular, and the verb should also agree with the word closest to it[1], so the sentence should read "Neither I, nor anyone else has ever heard of DJ Smoldyface." I'm going to go ahead and add this. LikeAsItself 00:40, 2 November 2007 (UTC)

A new easter egg i found

Go to homestarrunner.com/terminal1234.swf You can see homestar still crying.

Script:

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ohh it stings it burns! Oh somepony save me...!

Entirely untrue. --DorianGray 03:38, 28 September 2011 (UTC)

Homestar's Foot

When Homestar is rolling on the ground, you can see a front facing version of his foot. Is this worth noting? Maxmushroom 01:30, 5 August 2016 (UTC)
