'''MIKE:''' ''{confused}'' Really?

'''MATT:''' Yeah, you... had some&mdash;
 
-
 
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{overlapping}'' Oooooh, yeah.
 
-
 
-
'''MATT:''' &mdash;already downloaded Strong Bad Emails, and you just started pokin' around, and you found this one about hygiene. And, uh...
 
-
 
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{interrupting}'' That was back when my battery life was maybe like, fifteen or twenty minutes?
 
-
 
-
'''MATT:''' ''{laughs}'' ''{unintelligible}''
 
-
 
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{interrupting}'' For the past three months, it's been ''zero'', literally, if I unplug it for ''one second'' it's dead. I just ordered a new battery the other day.
 
-
 
-
'''MATT:''' ''{somewhat faintly}'' Good job.
 
-
 
-
'''MIKE:''' Yeah.
 
-
 
-
'''MATT:''' But I think that&mdash; I have&mdash; there's a drawing of, uhh, Homestar as... as John. ''{Mike overlaps, saying "Oh" somewhat unemotionally.}'' Umm, with, the like, droopy star, and the, like, looking gross.
 
-
 
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{overlapping}'' Right. Oh yeah, 'cause you also drew the, umm, Most Paste, and, uhh, ''{Matt chuckles}'' powders.
 
-
 
-
'''MATT:''' Haha, yeah. ''{Pause}'' Yeah.
 
-
 
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{overlapping}'' Oh,&mdash; "Oh, Powders!" I think that was a sketchbook of the week, anyway.
 
-
 
-
'''MATT:''' So that intro there, that's using, uh, those&mdash; those&mdash; we're actually ''staring'' right at them&mdash; a series of these wonderful, ''white'' cassette tapes of ''{Mike chuckles}'' sound effects and musical stings... that my parents got me waaay back when I first started, like, making movies, and I think my Dad was like, "Oh, Matt could use these to, you know, have&mdash; sit a boombox ''{Mike begins chuckling}'' next to the camera, and maybe have some machine gun sounds!"
 
-
 
-
'''MIKE:''' Haha!
 
-
 
-
''{In the email, the view of the refrigerator with Gene's grade on it was replaced with a shot of John.}''
 
-

'''MATT:''' Fridgin'-A. I was wond&mdash; ''{Mike laughs, saying "Fridgin'-A!"}'' what brand 'fridge that was. Fridgin'-''A''!
 
-
 
-
''{Pause. In the email, Gene had just waved to the camera, saying "Hi, gals!"}''
 
-
 
-
'''MATT:''' That is some good hair that Gene has, Mike.

'''MIKE:''' Sorry, I'm mesmerized...

'''MIKE:''' I fell prey to just watching the email ''{Matt starts chuckling; Mike refrains from laughing}'' that I haven't seen in a year.

-
'''MIKE:''' Yeah, have we&mdash; what are those called?
 
-
 
-
'''MATT:''' ''{hesitantly; holding back laughter}'' Electronic... chemistry sets?
 
-
 
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{overlapping}'' I remember them, 'cause they had different sizes. You could get 'em at RadioShack, and some of 'em were pretty small, and it would&mdash; be basically, like, "make a buzzer sound go off", or "light up a light".
 
-
 
-
'''MATT:''' Right.

-
'''MATT:''' ''{overlapping; faintly}'' Yeah. ''{brief pause}'' Uh, I, actually&mdash;
 
-
 
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{interrupting}'' Did you know anybody with a race car bed?

'''MATT:''' Uhh, Ricky Schroder.

-
'''MIKE:''' ''{chuckles after a brief pause}'' Yeah. ''{unintelligible}''

'''MIKE:''' ''{laughs heavily}''

'''MATT:''' There you go!

''{In the email, the three hygiene-related containers and tube being zoomed in on.}''
 
-
 
-
'''ALL:''' ''{with impression}'' ''Oh, powders!''
 
-
 
-
'''MATT:''' Were those, were all&mdash; was I just drawing those or was I drawing those ''for'' this email?

-
 
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{continuing}'' There was a... um... ''{clicks his tongue, hesitant throughout}'' kid, at Georgia, freshman year, that was so clearly... just like, a... big nerd, in... high school and then got to Georgia and was just, like, ''{in a mocking tone; non-hesitantly}'' "I'm gonna change ''{Matt laughs}'' the person I am!"
 
-
 
-
'''MATT:''' Do you think he had had an "accident" at school?&mdash;
 
-
 
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{interrupting; clearly holding back laughter}'' He might have, yeah.
 
-
 
-
'''MATT:''' ''{overlapping}'' &mdash;''{unintelligible}'' at school and had to, uh...

'''MIKE:''' ''{overlapping; still holding back laughter}'' Yeah.

''{In the email, the film is showing title cards with music again.}''
 
-

'''MATT:''' Try and live it down?
 
-
 
-
'''MIKE:''' It was so obvious, &mdash;
 
-
 
-
'''MATT:''' ''{interrupting; said before the respective title card appears}'' "Lesson 2."
 
-
 
-
'''MATT:''' ''{slight pause}'' Speaking of living something down! ''{Mike chuckles}'' Pants problems are somethin' that you ''really'' gotta watch out for.

''{Pause.}''

'''MATT:''' Umm... &mdash;

-
 
-
'''MATT:''' Like, I don't know, just club... kids... ''{Mike begins to say something but is cut off}'' that wear the big elephant pants that have lots of straps and buttons on 'em?
 
-
 
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{beings to speak after Matt says "elephant pants"}'' Do they still exist? ''{brief pause}'' Is that what you're asking?
 
-
 
-
'''MATT:''' Yeah, and what do they call themselves?
 
-
 
-
''{Mike takes a breath. In the email, Strong Bad is talking to the New Paper.}''
 
-
 
-
'''MATT:''' Hurry!
 
-
 
-
'''MIKE:''' ''{brief pause}'' Ummm... raviers.
