A fantastic e-mail, very much like "personal favorities", but with real stuff in it. Nice to see clips of all 124 e-mails being combined together to make up "SBEMAIL: The Musical". Good job. Hope we see another storyline like this in the next three and a half years (or so). - 82.37.217.206

The music that begins after "Experience dance tonight!" bears a resemblance to that of "The Cheat Is Not Dead", does anyone agree? -[[User:Suicune64|Suicune64]]

I figured such, just trying to make sure I'm not hearing it incorrectly. On a similar note, does anyone agree that the music that begins during "Awkward peaches" sounds like the intro to [[Everybody to the Limit]]? It seems that TBC are making not only visual references but distinct musical ones, as well...-[[User:Suicune64|Suicune64]]

Yes I am a big Loony Tunes fan and I watch the cartoons all the time. Also doing a google search on speedy Arriba! will also prove my point. Now who's changed it back? I've more than proved my point?

===Error? (DECLINED)===
 
-
 
-
On the newspaper clippin' of (Perhaps) The Deke's rave review, the word "of" is double-underlined, apparently by hand. Strong Bad appears to have noted that the word was not capitalized, and duly marked the error.

For you people who don't think the words are in order, use a benchmark of a certain word you know and count the words from it. Then watch the email in the same number in the same direction. you'll find it. Poofy

== Crackin' not a goof? ==
 
-
 
-
The use of the word crackin' is listed under goofs, with the comment that maybe it was recorded but didn't make the final cut.  However, after listening to [[fingers]] closely, I think it IS in there, but Strong Bad's voice is almost completely overpowered by the narrator's voice-over.  I don't think this should be listed under goofs, but should be listed under remarks with the explanation like the one I just gave.  Any thoughts? --[[User:Eepiccolo|eepiccolo]] 19:34, 24 July 2006 (UTC)
 
-
:Thanks for bringing this up. I fully believe that it was recorded but the audio of that sound layer was turned down until the narrator stopped talking. I will reword it and move it. &mdash;[[User:BazookaJoe|BazookaJoe]] 19:41, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

== Pig Latin ==
 
-
 
-
Regarding [http://www.hrwiki.org/index.php?title=rock_opera&diff=prev&oldid=479023 this] and the next few edits: Strong bad ''does'' say "may". Not only can you listen to his words, but [[Wikipedia:Pig Latin|Wikipedia]] also shows that Pig Latin phrases do not always end in "nay" (it's the -''ay'' that they all have in common). Pig Latin words are formed by moving the first consonant in the word to the end, then adding -ay. The consonant is not always an N. &mdash; {{User:SamFisher1022/sig}} 17:56, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
 
-
:It's "nay". It's SB being incompetent as to how to speak pig latin, and copying the "nay" again from "ix'''nay'''". {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 18:03, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
 
-
::How do we know he is incompetent in Pig Latin? In [[50 emails#Explanations|50 emails]], he says "at-may" just fine. &mdash; {{User:SamFisher1022/sig}} 18:23, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
 
-
:::Well explain to me why "may" makes sense then. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 18:25, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
 
-
::::I think he's trying to finish his last word ("me") in Pig Latin, but fails (wouldn't it be emay?). That's as good an explanation I can give you. Plus, I hear "may". Not "I think I hear may" or "I can just barely hear may", I hear "may".  So '''may'''. {{User:Bluebry/sig}} 18:27, 12 July 2007 (UTC)
 
-
:::::Because "me" in Pig Latin would be "e-may". Even though Strong Bad kept the M at the beginning, he still adds "may" properly. &mdash; {{User:SamFisher1022/sig}} 18:29, 12 July 2007 (UTC)

== Objection to Last Revision: 124 EMails Not 125 ==
 
-
 
-
I just want to point out that context SBEMAIL is the context for e-mail 125. It should also be noted that when making a collage/compilation of past to current, you can always have the current sbemail in itself; especially since "SBEMAIL!!!" is part of the song, and is number 125. {{User:Iyeru/sig}}

== "Unnecessary Onomatopœia" ==
 
-
 
-
I added the onomatopœia of Strong Bad singing his intro song backwards, which I interpreted as: Aah smebdeluda gemta crem nina greschdt. Then, my edit was quickly reverted by MichaelXX2. Do tell, what was bad with having the onomatopœia in there? And if we can't have it in the transcript, could it be a fun fact?

== Train wreck a-rollin' all night long? ==
 
-
 
-
Not sure if anyone noticed or suggested this, but there's a strong similarity between Strong Bad's line "Now let's get this train wreck a-rollin'!" and the song "Train Kept a-Rollin'", made famous by [[Wikipedia:Aerosmith|Aerosmith]] (and featured in the game [[Wikipedia:Rock Band|Rock Band]]).  The song has been around for a long time and was pretty popular (as is the band), though I only became aware of the song through the game.  The song's lyrics include the line "Train kept a-rollin' all night long" repeated several times, but as far as I know, there are no other common elements between the song and this email. {{User:KieferSkunk/sig}} 19:55, 2 April 2009 (UTC)
 
-
 
-
It seems like a bit of a stretch without the "all night long" part, or at least some part with that sort of rhythm, because getting things a rolling is a pretty common phrase. --[[Special:Contributions/65.87.242.28|65.87.242.28]] 20:40, 1 June 2009 (UTC)

"When Strong Bad's typing starts going awry as The Cheat is throwing roses at him, he types "the chicks" as "teh chekts", a reference to the immediately preceding Strong Bad email secret recipes."
