Strong Bad Email #101

Kyle asks about Strong Bad's car, which he apparently doesn't have.

Cast (in order of appearance): Strong Bad, Homestar Runner, Strong Sad (Easter egg)

Places: Computer Room, Strong Sad's Room (Easter egg)

Computer: Compy 386

Date: April 20, 2004

Running Time: 2:52



STRONG BAD: The views expressed in the following email show do not necessarily reflect the opinions of anybody cool. Oh, except me. {lowers voice} I'm cool.


{Strong Bad reads the email exactly as it's typed, punctuation errors and all, except for the word "Pimped", which he pronounces "Pimp-id"}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Oh, good one Kyle. Like I don't get two jillion of these emails every two jillion seconds. Er. Wait. Would that be so bad? Hmmm. I'll have to ask Strong Sad {Typed as Gron Sad} about that later on. Maybe write in to 'Popular Science' about it. "Popular Science." No such thing, man. More like, "Nerdular Nerdence." {clears screen, continues typing} Anydangway, to properly make an example out of both you, and your email's butts, I'm going to whip out an old classic move of mine, and hit you with a little uhhhh digga digga digga digga digga digga DEL-

{Cut to a wider view of Strong Bad's desk, where Homestar is off to the right.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {Interrupting Strong Bad} Hup-tup-tup-tup-tup. {Cut to a close-up of Homestar.} Allow me to save this email from a tired old Strong Bad joke by showing all y'alls my new tricked out propeller cap.

{Cut back to zoomed view of Strong Bad and Homestar.}

STRONG BAD: {Shaking fist} What are you doing?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ummm... Did you just say "doing"? {This is said as to rhyme with "boing."}

STRONG BAD: What? No. Doo-ing. I said, "What are you doo-ing?".

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh. Well, you spelled it the same.

STRONG BAD: Wha-ga...?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Anyways, on to my cool words that I had to say. First, check out all my hydraulics. {Homestar pulls out a remote control with three switches on it. He flips the first two. His cap moves up and down on his head, making mechanical car hydraulic noises. He then continues to mix and match the usage of the switches to adjust the pitch, yaw, and angle of his cap in regards to his head. While this is going on, he continues to talk, commenting on the particular movements.} And a little... {His cap goes up, forward, back, forward, back, forward, back, and then down onto his head again.} And everybody loves... {His cap slides up, and then forward on his head.} Now turn the lights down low. {The lights dim, and his cap glows pink from underneath.} Sweetish ground effects. {The room lights brighten and the "effects" turn off.} And the coup {Coup is said as "koop."} de grace, {He bends down putting his cap within the reach of Strong Bad.} Spin my buzzer.

STRONG BAD: Your what?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: My buzzer. Give it a spin.

STRONG BAD: Oh, why am I doing this?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh! you said "doing" {He pronounces it as spelled.} again.

{Strong Bad makes some frustrated noises. He then spins the propeller on Homestar's cap. It gives a propeller-like sound.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {Singing as the spin continues} Dooooo, doo doo doo dooooooooo. Dooo doot doot doot doot! Doo da doo da doo! Doo doot!

STRONG BAD: Now you're singing the theme from Night Court?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: No, not singing. When you spin my buzzer, it plays the theme from Night Court starring Richard Moll. And it's custom-installed.

{Strong Bad begins writing something unseen on his boxing glove with a permanent marker while muttering. The words "custom installed" are the only audible words he mutters.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Now what are you doing? {This is still rhymed with boing.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, I'm just tricking out my fist here.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh cool. What's it going to say? 2-E-Z? {2-E-Z flashes on the screen.} Or, like, NEVA-DIE? {NEVA-DIE flashes on the screen.}

STRONG BAD: No, it says this. {He shows Homestar. Written on his boxing glove is a mirrored "DELETED" in Gothic text.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Strong Bad, they spelled that backwards. You need to take that thing back right—

{Strong Bad dives forward and punches Homestar. The screen goes white for a moment. Fade back to Homestar leaning up against a crack in the wall from the impact with his head. He's lost his cap, his eyes are X's, Strong Bad's fist has left the Gothic "DELETED" imprinted on his forehead. Yellow stars float around his head.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ooohh oooh. Thank you once again for my pies. I spent particular effort on the Crème Bernard.

{Cut to Strong Bad back at the Compy.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Well, that straightens everything out, right? As for you, Kyle, I don't have a car. You ever see me in a car? No! Bye. {Strong Bad stops typing and runs off to the right. After a moment, he pokes his head back on the screen.} Talk to my man with the green and white stripes!

{The Paper comes down.}

Easter Eggs

  • Click on the word car at the end to see Homestar Runner dazed again.
{Cut to a still-dazed Homestar Runner.}
HOMESTAR RUNNER: {dazed} It's such a lovely gathering of pies and pie people... Like to give a shout-out to Lemon Pretend over there...
  • Click on the word "No!" at the end to see Strong Bad talking with Strong Sad.
{Cut to Strong Sad's Room. Strong Sad is reading a copy of Nerdular Nerdence. Enter Strong Bad.}
STRONG BAD: Hey! Gron Sad!
STRONG SAD: {He looks up.} Why do you keep calling me that?
STRONG BAD: I dunno...change of pace. Anyways, how many emails would it be if you got, like, two jillion emails every two jillion seconds? Like, a lot, or a little?
STRONG SAD: Jillion is not a real unit of measure!
STRONG BAD: Whatever, NERD! {Strong Bad leaves.}
STRONG SAD: That's right! {He holds up his hand.} Say it again!

Fun Facts


  • In both this email and invisibility, Homestar was taken by surprise. Homestar can beat up Strong Bad easily, as shown in Marshmallow's Last Stand.
  • The page in Nerdular Nerdence that Strong Sad is reading says "electrons, scalene triangles, least ...mon denominators." "Mon" probably indicates the end of "common."
  • Homestar's cross eyes were used in Tis True, Pom Pom, Tis True. But since it was never finished, technically this is their first appearance.


  • If you get two jillion emails every two jillion seconds, then you get an average of one email per second, because any nonzero number divided by itself (even made-up numbers like a jillion) is one.
  • Strong Sad states that a "jillion is not a real unit of measure." Strong Sad is right...and he's wrong! Strong Bad uses "a jillion" as a number, not as a unit of measure.
  • Strong Bad is right-handed, but he hits Homestar with his left hand (presumably so he could write in Old-English font with his right hand, so when he hit Homestar the word DELETED would not look sloppy). His off-hand punch is quite impressive, leaving us to wonder what a full-force right hook would do to Homestar.
    • It also may be more evidence to the fact that Strong Bad could be ambidexterous.
  • After Strong Bad punches Homestar, the screen on the Compy is blank, even though Strong Bad never cleared it.
  • Even though Strong Bad punches Homestar under the chin, DELETED appears across Homestar's eyes.


  • Strong Bad spins Homestar's "buzzer" counterclockwise, but instead it turns clockwise.
  • At the end of the email, the part of the "a> back" is placed over the edge of the Compy's screen.


  • After the Nerdular Nerdence egg, you can hear the beginning of the Homestar egg just before the scene cuts back to the computer. This is due to the fact that the gotoandstop() command is being performed later than it should be.

Commentary Transcript

(Commentary by: Matt Chapman, Mike Chapman)


MATT: We're back!

MIKE: Welcome to email one-oh-one!

MATT: We're back for another DVD!

MIKE: This is... uh... email number one-oh-one, Matt.

MATT: The first one after flashback.

MIKE: That's right, we took...

MATT: I think a lot of people didn't think we were gonna keep going.

MIKE: Yeah, that's true. People speculated that we were gonna stop at a hundred, but we're, um, continuing to drive this little thing we've done into the ground.

{Matt snickers.}

MIKE: Um, no, but we did take a couple weeks off after email a hundred, and so this is sorta the return...

MATT: Yeah.

MIKE: And, uh...

MATT: {as Strong Bad types "Gron Sad"} Gron Sad?

MIKE: That comes from our, uh...

MATT: Our niece.
MIKE: niece.

MIKE: Who used to call...

MATT: A girl's a niece, right?

MIKE: Yes.

MATT: A niece is a girl.

MIKE: Because there's that joke about "Denise" and "Denephew."

MIKE: That's how I remember.
MATT: Oooooooh.

MATT: Nice.

MIKE: Yeah.

MATT: I never heard that one.

MIKE: Yeah.

MATT: I'll remember that from now on.

MIKE: Yeah. So our niece, when she was...

MATT: You know how little kids are dumb and can't talk right? She would say "Gron Sad" instead of "Strong Sad," and she would say "Graw Mad" instead of "Strong Mad."

{Pause, until Homestar arrives in the email.}

MATT: Here comes Homestar Runner. With his Cave Man Ugh-lympics is the...

MIKE: It was a good game.

MATT: It was.

MIKE: It's like an olympic-type game where you had, like uh... hair-pulling, where you like had to drag some...

MATT: {amused} Where you had to drag a woman by the hair...

MIKE: Pull her by the hair... ride a dinosaur...

MATT: Yeah. Something with the wheel, probably.

MIKE: It was good. {As Homestar shows off his hydraulic cap} This must the only time you really see the underside of Homestar's hat.

MATT: Yeah, {indecipherable}

MIKE: ...His hat ever becomes three-dimensional.

MATT: Yeah. Exactly. {as Homestar's hat glows} One time Mike put ground effects on our coffee table, when we used to live together.

MIKE: Nice. One of those red rope lights, I just taped it on the underside of it, it was nice.

MATT: It worked good.

MIKE: {As Strong Bad is about to spin Homestar's propeller} Of course...

MATT: This is the first time animated Homestar...

MIKE: Yeah, I was gonna say...

MATT: ...Calls his propeller a "buzzer."

MIKE: Stole that from Puppet Homestar. Night Court, of course, was part of the original Thursday-night lineup. Cosby Show...

MATT: {overlapping Mike's "Cosby Show"} Cosby Show! Family Ties! Cheers! Night Court! L.A. Law!

MIKE: Was Night Court nine or nine-thirty?

MATT: Nine-thirty.

MIKE: Okay. Cheers...

MATT: Cheers was right after Family Ties.

MIKE: Yeah. Good lineup.

{Pause. In response to "2-E-Z" and "NEVA-DIE":}

MATT: I think those are both real things I've seen on people's dashboard windshields, driving around Atlanta.

{Mike snickers}

MIKE: There was one in Athens that was, I see you lookin'... "I C U"... he was pretty popular.

MATT: {as Homestar is dazed, to the sound effects} That's just me and Mike...

BOTH: {imitating the sound effect} OooOOooOOooOO...

MATT: Yeah, this was sorta giving in, finally, too, 'cuz this is one he constantly would get, in an email, about "what kinda car do you drive?"
