What do you suppose Homestar's marking as "ds" means? I can think of one that's not family friendly, but other options? Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 19:23, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

My guess is on Dumb Star, or something like that. He previously called Homestar that in an email, I think, but I am not sure. Rogue Leader / (my talk) 19:25, 31 July 2006 (UTC)
I'm guessing it's a reference to the Nintendo DS. It has been shown again and again that TBC are Nintendo fans. At least, the DS was what I first thought of when I saw that. My two cents. Alcnolien Has Spoken! 20:45, 31 July 2006 (UTC)
It's almost certainly "duckshirt." That's pretty much a synonym for Homestar, and in flashback, SB uses "Duckshirt" as Homestar's name. LitigationMattson 20:59, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Maybe it's just the "sb" on the Strong Bad cutout mirrored. The Spainish Inquisition

If that's the case then the "s" would be backwards.

Baseball reference

Strongsad's Easteregg mentioning Baseball could be a reference to the MLB Trade Deadline (which ends in 20 minutes)

Doubtful - TGS11 had a baseball ref too. I think TBC just like baseball. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 19:45, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Sticklyman's Return!

No running, no diving, and no swimming; All represented by the pudding-shoveler himself! -- 19:59, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Ah, but are you sure it's Sticlyman? Does he have a shovel? Is he into light fighting? Or maybe he's just the typical guy-on-a-sign stick man. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:14, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

I hate you. My hopes and dreams rise up and you cruelly shoot them down with your harsh words. I will have my revenge, jerk! -- 20:22, 31 July 2006 (UTC)
That was kind'a rude, Qermac, but I suspect a block-in-progress, Mr. IP Stongbah Preeow! 21:01, 31 July 2006 (UTC)
There was nothing rude about what Qermaq said. He was just making the facts obvious. Loafing 21:44, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

no clicky on the lappy

when you click the lappy's screen, the pressure waves don't show up.

Sure they do. I just did it. Qermaq - (T/C) Image:Qermaqsigpic.png 20:14, 31 July 2006 (UTC)
They don't show up after Strong Bad falls through the roof. --Ragey 22:41, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Up, A, and Start

  • Does this reference any particular video game? If it were just Up+A, I'd be sure it was a reference to Metroid or both Legend of Zelda games on the NES (using that code on a second controller would save your progress and restart) but I can't think of any games that used Up+A and Start. -- Frickinsellout 20:29, 31 July 2006 (UTC)
    • You are almost certainly right. In fact, the Up+A on the second controller trick only works when you have paused (pressed start) on the first controller. I'm going to add it to the real-world references section. Trey56 20:58, 31 July 2006 (UTC)
      • I don't think it refers to any video game, he's just making up a cheat code. Swimma Dan 22:59, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Long Pants?

Is it me, or is Homestar wearing his 'long pants' in the 'ool? (~InvaderJem)


How about the fact that the "pool" had been previously mentioned here [1]

I think that might pass off as a fun fact. Nice find, there! (~InvaderJem)
See Swimming PoolLoafing 21:30, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

It seems more likely to be the pool from A Jumping Jack Contest.

Was there not also a pool mentioned in other days, when Strong Bad had swim practice? Apparently he's finished them as well as lifeguard training since then. So makey outy 23:45, 31 July 2006 (UTC)
other days doesn't directly mention a pool, but where else would Strong Bad and Strong Sad have swim practice?The Spainish Inquisition

Mr. Chek(h)ov

I'm pretty sure this is a double reference to both the writer and the Star Trek character. Yeah, they're spelled differently, but who ever calls Anton Chekhov "Mr. Chekhov"? However, Kirk did call his Chekov "Mr." all the time...

Progressive progress

Is anyone still currently working on the transcript? When I stopped, I took the "inprogress" template off... If whoever's working on it now is going really slowly, that's one thing, but it's kinda rude to leave the template there and just stop. --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 21:56, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

The school aways had an elevator!

Is anyone else thinking that this particular line might be a reference to Saved by the Bell? Specifically, that time the school suddenly had an elevator for Zack to deliver Mr. Belding's son in? - 21:59, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

--I think it is a refrence to that, and many other TV shows where the charecters go to a second floor, basement, pool, etc.

Einstein and Muffled?

STRONG BAD: So later on anybody wanna get together a game of "Sharks and Minnows"? "Einstein and [muffled]"? "Pregnant and seventeen"?

It seems to me that Strong Bad says "Einstein and Kreskin," likely a refrence to The Amazing Kreskin. I'll refrain from changing the article untile there's a consensus. 23:30, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Well, someone just made the edit. Nevermind. 23:33, 31 July 2006 (UTC)

Inflated The Cheat

In regards to the Inside Reference of the Helium email, I'm not certain the cheat is actually inflated, from what I can tell he just seems to be leaning back (or tilting his head up)

Funny and true

It has been hot in Sunnyvale, Ca. I know this because I live there. Unfortunately, I didn't write this one, but I'm glad Strong Bad knows about it. -JesseLangham

Ool, not Pool

After Homestar crashes through Strong Bad's roof. He says "Uh, Strong Bad, I think that total wave ruined your ool." That's "Ool" not "Pool" as the transcript currently reads. This is in reference to the "There is no P in our pool, please keep it that way" Sign referenced in the toon. -JesseLangham

You could have just updated the transcript yourself and explained your reasoning in the summary... --Jay stuck at home (Talk) 00:13, 1 August 2006 (UTC)
....oh yeah...duh... Thanks!
