Transcript

STRONG BAD: There once was a man named email, and he did his best for a while.

{Reading email}

Strong Bad,
So, if you're so good with the ladies,
how come I never see you with any? The
only female I've seen even near you is
Marzipan, and she doesn't seem to
like you very much.

Ok, bye.
Emily C., Ohio

{Strong Bad reads the email as "The only female I've eev see sageento--" before correcting himself. Also, he pronounces "Ohio" as "O-wah-ho"}

STRONG BAD: {typing} What are you talkin about, Emily? Marzipan can't keep her hands offa me! In fact, I had to change my screen name cause she was buggin me so much. {clears screen} I'd be like, tryin' to write an email like... {typing} "Dear The Cheat" {stops typing} And then {message comes up: "hooray4dolphins: 'sup strong bad? i heart you so much."} it'd come up, and I'd be like close the window. {closes message, continues typing} "Anyways, The Cheat, I was going" {message comes up: "hooray4dolphins: i like all your muscles," Strong Bad closes it} "to ask you" {message comes up: "hooray4dolphins: do you go hooray 4 dolphins? i do," Strong Bad closes it} "if I could borrow" {message comes up: "hooray4dolphins: (typed in Webdings font) i seriously hope you didn't somehow decode this. it would make me real sad," Strong Bad closes it} "that big knife" {message comes up: "hooray4dolphins: are you trying to fade me?," Strong bad closes it, clears the screen, and continues typing} And if that's not en�ff pr�f, just watch this...

{Scene cuts to Marzipan out in the field next to a sign laying against a cinder block saying Free Concert For Birds}

MARZIPAN: {singing} Oh yeah, oh yeah, and I really don't like him at all.

STRONG BAD: So, uh... {Combs back "hair" and puts his comb into the back of his pants} Is that another song about Homestar?

MARZIPAN: No, it's about you.

STRONG BAD: About being in love with me?

MARZIPAN: That's disgusting. And I don't like your outfit.

STRONG BAD: Well, I'm not telling you my new screen name.

MARZIPAN: Well... I don't even know what a screen name is, so there you go. And if you'd please leave now, because I'm tinkering with my guitar.

STRONG BAD: Oh yeah, well? Say you like me.

MARZIPAN: No, leave me alone.

STRONG BAD: Say you like me?

MARZIPAN: No.

STRONG BAD: Then do you like {quickly and quietly} Strong Bad?

MARZIPAN: No! You're just saying your name fast. Go away.

STRONG BAD: What about that guy who's brothers with Strong Mad and {quickly and quietly} Strong Sad?

MARZIPAN: That's still you! No!

STRONG BAD: Then how about this one? Do you don't not dislike not Strong Bad?

MARZIPAN: Uh... I guess...

STRONG BAD: See! I told you you loved me! Ooh! I knew it all along! Wait until my friend Emily from Ohio {pronounces it "O-hee-oh"} hears this!!! Oooh! She loves me!

MARZIPAN: Whatever... Come on Carol, let's rock.

{Scene cuts back to Strong Bad's computer room. Three messages pop up from The Cheat:}

cheatachu72: yo SB! you there? you still want that knife?
cheatachu72: ello?
cheatachu72: i gots to jet. makin' a video for a client

{The Paper comes down. About 15 seconds later, a message from Strong Sad pops up:}

Fun Facts

  • Strong Sad's message is a reference to how Mike Chapman once tried to feed his brother Matt brownies with toothpaste in them, only to have the younger brother retaliate with vinegar toast. (From ajc.com interview. Free login required.)
  • The images for the Marzipan video are:
    • Marzipan in a field,
    • A road,
    • Cup of coffee,
    • Beefy arm,
    • "Hello My Name Is" Tag,
    • Teeth,
    • Florida,
    • A Shirt with a gold necklace,
    • Alarm Clock.
  • In the Easter egg, Marzipan's guitar is called "Carl."
  • When Marzipan IMs Strong Bad, she says "Are you trying to fade me?" which is a reference to the name of Coach Z's new hit single, These Peoples Try to Fade Me.
  • "don't not dislike not" would mean Marzipan does like Strong Bad, by two instances of double negation.
  • Marzipan's "Free Concert for Birds" sign leans up against a cinder block, just like the stop sign in Strongbadia.
  • Marzipan throwing a free concert for birds may be a reference to the comic strip "Peanuts," where in one strip, Linus has a sign which reads "Free Pats" for birds.
  • This email marks the first time Marzipan's guitar has been referred to as Carol. Previously, the guitar had been nameless, and had an M on it instead.
  • When this email first came out, The Brothers Chaps registered the AIM screenname hooray4dolphins. It was always online with an away message, saying that Marzipan wasn't really using that screenname, since she doesn't use computers.
  • If you wait for Strong Sad's message about vinegar toast and then watch the Marzipan video, when you go back to the last screen Strong Sad's message will have disappeared (but comes back in another 15 seconds).
  • The Cheat's screenname, cheatachu72, was originally seen in the email i she be.
  • Strong Bad says that "Marzipan can't keep her hands offa" him, which is ironic since Marzipan doesn't have any hands.

DVD Version

  • The DVD version contains a hidden commentary by Mike, Matt and Missy. To access it, switch your DVD player's audio language selection while watching.
    • This commentary continues into the "Yeah Yeah" music video Easter egg.
