Heading to Roy's girlfriend's house

Strong Bad Email #17

Roy asks Strong Bad what to do about his girlfriend, who keeps interrupting him while he's studying.

Cast (in order of appearance): Strong Bad

Date: March 11, 2002

Duration: 1:11



STRONG BAD: Whoa! Electronic mail!

Dear Strong Bad,
My girlfriend is really annoying because she calls 
me when I'm trying to study. What should I do?

Crapfully yours,

STRONG BAD: {typing} Oh, well! I think I might have a little piece of advice for you, Roy. Close the book and quit being such a dork-on!!!!!!! {clears screen} I mean, this girl obviously has the hots for you man. Why do you think she's calling you? I mean, you've got the potential to get 1st, 2nd, and quite possibly even 3rd base. So unless you're studying a book called "This Book is Better than 1st, 2nd, and Quite Possibly Even 3rd Base", I suggest you hightail it over to your girlfriend's house ASAP, man! {clears screen} And also, send me a copy of that book. It sounds pretty good. You know what...scratch that. You keep studying Roy, I'm going over to your girlfriend's house.

{He walks away from the computer and a few seconds later he returns back}

STRONG BAD: Uh, I forgot. I don't know her name or where she lives, but your girlfriend still loves me, Roy.

{The Paper comes out and it says "Click here to e-mail strong bad", click on the text to email him.}
