STRONG BAD: Ah, the old girl's working again. What do you got for me?

STRONG BAD: {after half a second stunned silence...} Ohh, there's two of them! {typing; speaking seductively} Well, Ali. There's one of me...

STRONG BAD: {seductively; no break in tone of voice} A—deleted... {shocked} DELETED?! What?! Oy, what happened? No! Undeleted! Undeleted!

{Strong Bad repeatedly hits the keyboard, resulting in "undeleted" 3 times, then "do something" and "anything!"}

STRONG BAD: I didn't mean to do that! Awwww, man!!! {wailing} Come back, Ali! Come back, Ali's sister! You two meant everything to me!

{Strong Bad hits his head on the keyboard 3 times during the last sentence, resulting in "head", "hit" and "keyboard"}

STRONG BAD: Okay, calm down. Maybe she'll email me again. {clears screen} I'll just... hang out here for a while and try to picture which one of them is hotter. Ali or Ali's sister.

{"Thought bubbles" appear, showing Ali as a blonde and her sister as brunette}

STRONG BAD: Ali... Ali's sister... Ali... Ali's sister...

{The Tandy dings and displays "You have 1 new e-mail"}

STRONG BAD: Oh, there she is! Okay, here we go.

{reading slowly}

STRONG BAD: What? {typing} You're not Ali. You're not even literate. Oh! Though, I have just the thing for you... DELETED!

{The Tandy dings again and displays "message saved. forever."}

STRONG BAD: Oh, that's great. Great, thank you. Yeah, go ahead and save that one, why don't you, yeah. So I can treasure it for years and years, and show it to my kids. The ones I should be having with Ali and Ali's sister! {hangs his head} I hate this computer.

{The Paper comes down}

Easter Eggs

  • When the pictures of the sisters appear, you can click on them to have Strong Bad imagine two different variations.

Fun Facts


  • When this email was first released, Strong Bad's head typed, "bam—bam—bigalow", the name of a professional wrestler, albeit misspelled. This was later changed to the current, "head—hit—keyboard". The reason for the change is unknown.
  • When Strong Bad is imagining which girl is hotter, the cracks on the monitor over-lap the words and his imagination.


  • Strong Bad says that he "hate[s] this computer," which is contrary to his statement in gimmicks that he "liked that computer".
  • Strong Bad does not comment on the sentence "My sister and me think you are so cool." Grammatically speaking, it should be "My sister and I think you are so cool."
    • Neither does he comment on "There is two of us." which should read, "There are two of us."


  • The green lines on the Tandy go through Strong Bad's head.

Real-World References

  • The first images of Ali and her sister are taken from the first Leisure Suit Larry game, Leisure Suit Larry in the Land of the Lounge Lizards. The additional images seen in the Easter egg are from the second game in the series, Leisure Suit Larry Goes Looking for Love (in Several Wrong Places).

Fast Forward

  • In personal favorites, the Grape-Nuts Robot says "Come back, Ali. Come back, Ali's sister."
  • In do over, Strong Bad imagines how he would correct the "stnank" he commits in this email. He also names Ali's sister "Ali Jr."

DVD Version

  • In the DVD version, the Ali/Ali's sister Easter egg is implemented differently. If you hit "Angle," when Strong Bad thinks of each girl, the image changes, similar to how clicking on them changed them in the original email.
