Summary

Strong Bad Email #69

HockeymanJ05 writes in to ask which one of the emails is Strong Bad's favorite, and Strong Bad takes a trip down memory lane. The astute viewer will note that not a single one of the emails that Strong Bad mentions have ever been seen before, except for the first two. (According to the FAQ, they never existed.)

Cast (in order of appearance): Strong Bad, Homestar Runner, Bubs, Coach Z, The Cheat, Pom Pom

Transcript

STRONG BAD: OHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH EMAIL!!! {This echoes and a wicked guitar solo plays while Strong Bad rocks out.} Whoa, that ruled. What function key do I gotta press to get that to happen again?

{reading email}
Hey Strong Bad,

You have done so many of these e-mails which one would you say is the best, or your personal favorite.

Thanks,
HockeymanJ05
{Strong Bad pronounces the name "Hockeyjackman.. whatever".}

{typing} Well, Hockeyfriend, my emails are like my childrens. I love them all! But if I had to play favorites... Let's see...

{not typing} There's that one where they asked what I'd do if I was invisable {pronounces it like that}, and I got to punch Homestar in the gut.

{Cut to Homestar Runner in a field. A stack of Swiss Cake Roll boxes float toward him.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Oh, hey guys.

{Homestar Runner is punched in the gut by an unseen force.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Owwwwww, those things are bad for you.

STRONG BAD: Ooh, and that one where my computer exploded.

{Cut to Strong Bad sitting at Tandy 400. It explodes and he is sent flying across the room and through the wall.}

STRONG BAD: And then there's that on where Bubs built the Strong Bad Robot out of a box of Grape Nuts and a speak-and-spell.

{Cut to Bubs and Strong Bad standing in a field with the Grape Nuts Robot.}

GRAPE NUTS ROBOT: Now spell come back Ali, Come back Ali's sister.

STRONG BAD: No way, that sounds just like me! {Strong Bad does a number of double-takes.}

STRONG BAD: And that time where that girl wrote in and I drank a glass of soy sauce and thought I could fly Bubs' Concession Stand.

{Cut to Strong Bad sitting on top of Bubs' Concession Stand. He wears aviation goggles and holds a makeshift steering wheel. Empty soy sauce bottles are strewn about.}

STRONG BAD: Whoohooo! Clear the launchway, man, we're takin' this baby TO THE MOOOOOOON!

{Strong Bad falls over backward behind the sign and the "D" falls off, onto Bubs' counter. Bubs immediately puts up a sign that says "'D' for SALE".}

STRONG BAD: Oh, and who could forget TAPE LEG TWO!

{Cut to Strong Bad stitting at Tandy 400. There's an e-mail on the screen which says:

Dear strong bad again, my brothers continue to tell me that your legs are made of tape, are you sure it's not true? -Nicolas

a> They still say my legs are made of tape?! WHAT?? I say again, do I look like some kinda tape-leg? I swear on Strong Sad's grave, man, I was never, nor will I ever be, a tape-leg.

{He sticks his foot in the air and it's covered with tape.}

STRONG BAD: Oh and how 'bout that one where I left such a good prank call on Marzipan's answering machine that it exploded?

{Cut to Marzipan's Answering Machine.}

STRONG BAD:: {from answering machine} PRANK CALL!!

{Marzipan's Answering Machine squeals and explodes.}

STRONG BAD:: And then there's that really old one that asked what my favorite phrase was..

{Cut to really badly-drawn Strong Bad at really badly-drawn Tandy 400. An e-mail on the screen reads "Favorite phrase? -trixie".}

BADLY-DRAWN STRONG BAD: {in really crappy voice} I like-a-to-say, holy crap!

{Really badly-drawn Homestar Runner (without cap) appears.}

BADLY-DRAWN HOMESTAR RUNNER: {in really crappy voice} Oh no, it's a Strong Bad!

STRONG BAD: And the one where PomPom and Coach Z got in that knife fight on the stone bridge..

{Cut to stone bridge over a river. Coach Z and !PomPom are facing eachother with knife. Coach Z keeps dodging back and forth and !PomPom deftly twirls his knife.}

COACH Z: {to PomPom} I'm a blade-man, man!

STRONG BAD: And then the one where the Cheat drank a glass of soy sauce and tried to eat Bubs' Concession Stand..

{Cut to Bubs' Concession stand. Empty soy sauce bottles are strewn about and the cheat is gnawing away at the back corner.}

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

{Pan to Strong Bad, atop Bubs' Concession Stand again.}

STRONG BAD: Hold on tight, The Cheat, we're blastin' off TO THE MOOOOOOOON!

STRONG BAD: {typing} So that's it, Soccerdude. That's pretty much the cream of the crop. There might be a few other good ones but if you ask me it doesn't get any better than the Grape Nuts robot.

{not typing} Okay, so.. OHHHHHH THAT'S THE END!!

{His last line echoes, and he begins imitating a guitar, but the rockin' music doesn't come back.}

STRONG BAD: Oh man, which button was it??

{The Paper comes down.}

Easter Eggs

  • At the end you can click on the word "other" to see two bonus e-mails:
    1. Strong bad says "How about that time when Gavin wouldn't leave me alone?". A cockroach crawls across Tandy 400's screen which Strong Bad swats at, saying "Get outta here, man, I'm checkin' my email!". The e-mail on the screen says: "Dear Strong Bad, Are you a real wrestle-man? I'm hope that u r. -Pred"
    2. Strong Bad says, "There was that time where the G and U keys were the only ones that weren't broken..". The e-mail on the screen reads: "Sup Strong Bad, Do that thing you do that one time. I wasn't watching and I missed it. Forever young, Zebbadee." Strong Bad replies: "guUU gu guu uuUUUuu gugug ug ug UG gu gu Gu gu".
  • You can also click on the words "Grape Nuts robot". Each time you click, you get a different Grape Nuts Robot quote:
    • "Now spell: Carp for brains."
    • "Things were just about to start getting crazy-go-nuts."
    • "Now spell: Douuuuuuuuble Deuce."
  • Also at the end you can hit the 'q' key to hear Strong Bad's email intro tune again.

Fun Facts

  • When the Grape Nuts Robot says "Now Spell: Come back Ali, come back Ali's sister," it is a reference to the email sisters.
  • Strong Bad pronounces the word "invisible" like "invisable", a reference to invisibility where the word was spelled wrong in the email.
  • Also, when the Grape Nuts Robot says "Now Spell: Douuuble Deuce," it is referring back to the email the bird. Or, Stinko Man K's anime attack.
  • Marzipan's answering machine tape says "lilith fair '99". Lilith Fair is a music festival celebrating feminist musicians, and women in general. The reason Marzipan has this is she is a feminist musician.
  • The side of the box of Grape Nuts says:
    "This is a very healthy choice for your breakfast needs. Try it once or more, for best results. Ingredients: cereal, milk, more cereal, 2% milk, more cereal, more milk, grape nuts, nuggets, nuggets, nuggets, assorted premium ingredients."

  • Also, the side of the box of Grape Nuts spells cereal "ceral" once.
  • The soy sauce bottles have writing on them in yellow letters, with "KIKKO" being visible. This is most definitely a bottle of Kikkoman Soy Sauce. The distinctive shape of the bottle gives it away. Besides, Kikkoman is found in most Chinese restaurants in the U.S., so it makes sense that TBC would give the soy sauce a familiar name.
