[edit] Transcript

STRONG BAD: {singing} Watch me do a little bit o' email, {accidentally types "stongbad_email.exe"} and I'll watch you do a little bit o'—

{The screen reads "File Not Found."}

STRONG BAD: —uh—that's never happened before. {singing} Watch me do a little bit o' email, {correctly types "strongbad_email.exe"} and I'll watch you do a little bit o'—

{Email loads properly this time}

STRONG BAD: —uh—that's never happened befo—oh wait, it's an email. That has happened before. And quite a few times if I remember correctly. All right, so...

{reading}

{he enunciates "funniest way ever" and reads "From Sam" as if the whole phrase was the emailer's name}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Let's see here... I can tape this blank floppy disk to my head {he doesn't actually type "blank", he tapes the disk to his forehead} and start talking gibberish and acting like the crazy squeaky guy. {clears screen} LEEKO! LEEKO! LEEKO! I'm a squeaky guy!

{He jumps up on the table and starts dancing around}

STRONG BAD: I got squeaky pants! Come check out my squeaky pants dance! Squee squaw squee squaw squee squaw—

{A bottle of ketchup falls from the ceiling into his hand and he starts flinging it over everything, while hitting the keyboard with his foot, producing "WOAH!! I CAN TYPE WITH ONE FOOT"}

STRONG BAD: —pongity pongity pongity pongity pongity pongity pongity pongity pongity pongity pongity pongity! Aunt Ruthie! Aunt Ruthie! There's ketchup on the computer! Halzee-WHOOP!

{He leaps from the table backwards and starts spinning while bouncing around the floor on his head.}

STRONG BAD: Pont-REER! Pont-REER! Pont-REER! Pont-REER! Pont-REER! Pont-REER!

{He runs up to Strong Sad and starts yelling rhyming gibberish at him while doing a strange dance.}

STRONG BAD: Jor jee jibbera jaw! Huppidda roopja oop jup jaw! Ooka oog—

{Strong Sad begins talking over him.}

STRONG SAD: Quit that!

STRONG BAD: —ooka reetoo taw!

STRONG SAD: You're freakin' me out.

STRONG BAD: {pauses shortly, then continues} Eeckoo ickoo ickoo slaw! Hooka hoo ha!

STRONG SAD: Did you take some of my pills again?

{Cut to the Compy. Bubs and The Cheat are dipping fries in the ketchup poured over the computer.}

BUBS: You know what? You're right, The Cheat! This computer catsup {pronounced kăt' səp} is better than the regular kind. Or that purple kind!

{Strong Bad walks back in}

STRONG BAD: All right, all right! Clear outta here, you two. 'Cept for you, The Cheat.

THE CHEAT: {grumbles}

STRONG BAD: You better start cleaning this mess up!

BUBS: What happened in here? Some type of ketchup bomb go off?

STRONG BAD: Nah, not really. I was answering an email and dancing and acting like a squeaky guy and I started throwing ketchup everywhere.

BUBS: Oh. That's pretty cool.

{Strong Bad does a double-take behind him to make sure nobody's around.}

STRONG BAD: {sotto voce to Bubs} Hey, man, are ketchup bombs real?

BUBS: Not yet! {raises French fry and runs off}

STRONG BAD: {to The Cheat} Well, aren't you gonna go get your 409 or Awesome Sauce or whatever you're gonna clean this up with?

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises} {heads off}

STRONG BAD: Maybe a moist chamois? {pronounces "chamois" as "sham-oyce"} {tries a fry with the computer ketchup} Ooh! This computer ketchup is pretty good. Needs more RAM, though. Maybe a couple of megachips.

{The Paper comes down.}

[edit] Easter Eggs

  • If you click on Strong Bad's face (not head) while he is spinning upside down (the floppy disk itself does not work), Homestar will come out to say something funny. It may take a few tries to get it; you have to be quite quick. It's easier to get it with the Tab key and Enter.
{Homestar Runner walks in from the left. Strong Bad re-enters from the right, still bouncing on his head and spouting his gibberish.}
HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ohhh... Hi, Strong Bad. I was just stopping by to do something funny, but, um... I can see you don't need my help this week.
{Strong Bad bounces off to the left while Homestar looks on.}
  • At the very end you can click on a blob of ketchup near the left fries to see the bottle of Quite Fancy 'Chup. The labels read:

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

  • A chamois (pronounced "sham-WAH" or "shammy") is a piece of leather used as a polishing cloth or in shirts. Its name derives from the animal originally used to make them.

[edit] Trivia

  • The label on the disk in the floppy disk container reads "odell lake".
  • The YouTube description for this email is "SB transforms into some type of squeaky guy. Floppy disk and ketchup co-star."

[edit] Remarks

  • This is the first time Strong Bad is shown eating.
  • Strong Sad is depressed by nature as part of his character, but here it is actually implied that he may be clinically depressed — thereby explaining the reference to his "pills."
  • The ketchup splatters in the last scene are shifted slightly downward in comparison to the previous computer room scene, and are more appropriately placed.
  • Bubs first says "catsup" when referring to the ketchup spilled on Strong Bad's computer, but then says "ketchup" when talking about "ketchup bombs". "Ketchup" and "catsup" both mean the same thing.
  • The Cheat's arms appear slightly out of scale.
  • The catsup bottle falls from hammerspace.
  • When Strong Bad "types" with his feet, he misspells "WHOA" as "WOAH".
  • Strong Bad correctly identifies the 3.5" floppy disk as a "floppy disk", despite the fact that he later misidentifies them as "hard disks" in technology.

[edit] Goofs

No mouth
  • When Strong Bad takes the floppy, only one should remain to the left of the computer. Instead, two remain.
    • At the end of the email, the floppies to the left of the Compy are gone.
  • The Quite Fancy 'Chup image is cut off near the top, if you look closely it ends in a straight horizontal line near the topmost green shade of The Paper.
  • The ketchup blob on the edge of the table with the Quite Fancy 'Chup Easter egg is translucent.
  • Strong Bad's legs actually go through his body for one frame when he's walking at the scene where he tells Bubs and The Cheat to leave. This is best seen if you view the Flash file and stop the movie when Strong Bad walks up. Then watch the movie frame by frame from that point.
  • The "reflected" disk we see in the monitor is not a mirror image of the ones we see after Strong Bad jumps on the desk.
  • When Strong Bad tells Bubs to leave, one of The Cheat's arms is shaded a bit in black.
  • When Strong Bad jumps up and down with the ketchup bottle, his foot types "WOAH!! I CAN TYPE WITH ONE FOOT!", yet due to the ketchup you can't see the 'e' in one, the 'y' in type and the 'fo' in foot. When he comes back to the computer later, you can see the 'e' in one, but most of the previously visible 'o' in foot is covered.
  • Strong Bad's arm would not normally be long enough to reach for a french fry on the desk.
  • The ketchup bottle falls with the top up, but somehow turns upside down when Strong Bad catches it.
  • When Strong Bad is bouncing on his head, his mouth disappears from a side view.
  • Strong Bad says the word "blank" when referring to the floppy disk, but does not type it when he tapes it to his head.

[edit] Glitches

Magical floppy disk?
  • When Strong Bad tapes the floppy disk to his head, the contrast dial does not affect its reflection, nor does it affect the reflection of his hand.

[edit] Inside References

  • The sounds Strong Bad makes when he is next to Strong Sad are very similar to the ones from his email song in big white face.
  • Strong Bad typing in "stongbad_email.exe" is a reference to 50 emails, where one sender called Strong Bad "Stong Bad."
  • Strong Bad typing with his foot is similar to how he types with his head in sisters.
  • Strong Sad accuses Strong Bad of taking some of his pills again.

[edit] Real-World References

That purple kind

[edit] Fast Forward

  • In technology, it's clear that Strong Bad has forgotten that the 3.5" inch diskette is a floppy disk, and he refers to it as a "hard" disk.
  • Awesome Sauce would later be seen in keep cool.

[edit] DVD Version

  • The Homestar Easter egg is automatically enabled; no selecting is necessary to access it.
  • To view the ketchup bottle Easter egg at the end of the video, click on the hidden Strong Bad logo on the computer screen.
  • The DVD version features hidden creators' commentary. To access it, switch your DVD player's audio language selection while watching.
  • The pause between Strong Bad bouncing off the screen and bouncing back just before Homestar shows up is shorter.

[edit] Commentary Transcript

(Commentary by: Mike Chapman, Matt Chapman)

MIKE: So here's the commentary track...

MATT: {laughs} Are we gonna do that kind of intro to all of them?

MIKE: I don't know.

MATT: As if they've just found this one one.

MIKE: {laughs} Well, maybe.

MATT: So welcome to commentary if you accidentally—

MIKE: Can you turn on the commentary throughout? And it'll automatically—

MATT: {overlapping} I think so, you just hit the "audio" button.

MIKE: {imitating newscaster} In case you've accidentally hit your "audio" button, you've just joined already in progress commentary track number AB...

MATT: All right, sorry, I didn't know, let's start over.

MIKE: {overlapping} I'm just kidding. No, no, this is great, this is great. We have nothing cool that has happened yet.

{pause}

MATT: So "Leeko! Leeko! Leeko!" is something Mike used to say when we'd, uh, like, get, when he'd get excited. And, um, what game is in the thing there, right there? Oh, "Odell Lake". {Mike laughs} That was a great game for the old Apple IIe that we played in school.

MIKE: Our cousin Jim used to say, "Fonkity fonkity."

MATT: Yeah, he'd hit himself in the head with a—

MIKE AND MATT: —wiffle-ball bat.

MIKE: And, uh, yeah. And he used to do that, too. {Matt laughs} He used to jump around on his head saying "pont-reer".

MATT: {overlapping} That's not true. That's not true.

MIKE: He's a very talented guy.

MATT: "Pont-reer" is just, uh, my generic, like, uh, cartoon sound effect. It just seems like cartoons are just like, "Pont-REER!" and then they'd do something. Oh, this is the best dance ever. Mike did this dance. I love it. And actually, this is sort of like, I think we've mentioned it before, but it's sort of like, uh—What he's saying, the weird chanting he's doing is kind of like this, uh, in that very stru—uh, Bugs Bunny episode we were talking about, where he's on the desert island. He does, like, a weird native dance and just kinda sounds like that.

MIKE: {overlapping} Ohhhh. Matt always throws in this stuff from old Looney Tunes that I don't know.

MATT: Well, I mean, it's sub— subconscious.

MIKE: Yeah. Sure.

MATT: Don't sue me {Mike snickers}, don't—I'm not, er, not plagiarizing.

MIKE: I love those little, uh, French fry trays.

MATT: Yeah.

MIKE: The red and white checkerboarded ones...? I remember one time I made, uh, some Long John—I made, uh, the Long John Silver's trays, cardboard trays that the fries and stuff came in, were—looked like boats, and I played with them and they're all greasy and... {Matt chuckles} But I loved them.

MATT: Uh, there's really a cleaner called, uh, "Awesome!"

MIKE: {overlapping} "Awesome!", yeah

MATT: {continues} right? Yeah, our friend Tobin got us, that he keep—we keep mentioning.

MIKE: Look, this is one of the few times that Strong Bad eats ever.

MATT: {chuckles} It just disappears into his mouth.

MIKE: {overlapping} It— into his flesh-mouth.

MATT: Couple of megachips. {Strong Bad in background says, "Maybe a couple of megachips"} That's what he said.
