G-Mom?

Is this the first SBEmail to mention the Strong Bad and Bros have a living grandmother? I know in looking old Strong Sad mentions a possibly living great grandmother, so conceivably it makes sense their grandmother is still alive. A worthy trivia mention?

Not necessarily, we don't really know if either of their grandmother's are still alive. The line was "turn into presents your Grandma's knitted for you". Strong Bad may have recieved that scarf a long time ago. Stribbs 13:53, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

It's all about the Benjamins

I think there should be an explanation about Coach Z's use of the slang Benjamins, but I can't figure out how to phrase it. The term comes from having Benjamin Franklin on the face, and it was popularized by Sean "Puffy" Combs "It's All About The Benjamins". Anybody want to take a stab at phrasing it (or is it something that shouldn't be noted)? wbwolf (t | ed) 15:31, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

I concur. Awexome 15:38, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
I think it merits a reference, but I'm kinda stuck trying to word it, too. Any help? SuperfieldCreditUnion

Shapeshift Unto

Isn't that phrase from some superhero show? Awexome 15:38, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

About the best I can think of The Wonder Twins from the 1970s Superfriends show, but it seems more like a general nod than a specific reference. wbwolf (t | ed) 15:41, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Shapeshifting Limitations

Are the limitations that are mentioned based on other shapeshifting characters? Does anyone know those references? --71.250.238.120 18:57, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

He's exaggerating for effect. I am aware of the Animorphs, who were shapeshifters who had the limitations that they had to touch an animal to turn into it and would be trapped if they stayed in a form for more than two hours at a time. --Jay o'Lantern (Haunt) 21:11, 31 March 2008 (UTC)
One of the Wonder Twins could only morph into an animal, and the other only into a form of water. Darkman could only hold his form for 99 minutes, Ranma 1/2 changed back and forth from being immersed in water of a certain temperature. The "gun but no bullets" thing seems more Green-Lanterny to me, but I suppose that it's sort of a Clayface limitation. I recall that once he morphed into Black Canary but was discovered since "she" couldn't remove her blonde wig. Tirian 22:30, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Marzipan

Marzipan looks strange in this. I think it's because of the eyebrows. Does she always have eyebrows? TheThin 19:39, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

I believe that's sort of a "frightened look," like what the Peanuts characters have when they're frightened or something. Believe me, she had that look before. --Charlie Jr. 21:41, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

Foreign Deals

"Strong Bad saying "norweigan deals!" after turning into the king of town is a reference to business trip where the king of town was the foreign conglomerate, and Strong Bad and Homestar tried to land the deal."

ok, so what about "swedish deals"? i don't think you can say one is an inside reference but not the other because they're clearly supposed to be related to each other, and besides, going from "foreign" to "norweigan" is a ridiculous stretch. ...plus there's a distinct lack of capitalization going on here. --Zatchman (Neumannz) 20:30, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

"presents your grandma's knitted for you"

Okay, I think "grandma's" may be a grammatical error. It could be an improper pluralization (possibly accidentally or for comedic effect, like "be's friends"), or it could a contraction of "grandma has," though that's very irregular. What people think? Arrkhal 22:51, 31 March 2008 (UTC)

I assumed "grandma has" being that he meant anything your grandma has ever knitted for you.
