STRONG BAD: {singing} Oh, I took the email to the market, and I bought it some kind of fish sauce.


Hello Strong Bad,
I'm a long time watcher first time
writer. I was wondering if you ever
use a stunt double.

Your whatever,

{Strong Bad says "Ooh, an LTWFTW." after reading "long time watcher first time writer", reads "I was wondering" as "I was just wondering" and says "Louis" as "Louise. Lewis. Louie.")

STRONG BAD: {typing} A stunt double?!? No way, Lucy! Only big wusses and lesser wimps use stunt doubles. I've always done my own stunt work. Check me out in this summer blockbuster we just finished. It's called Dangeresque 2: This time, it's Not Dangeresque 1.

{a cue card is held up with the title: "Dangeresque II: This Time, It's Not Dangeresque 1". Then a newspaper is shown. The headline has been covered with a piece of paper that says: "MISSING TAPE STOLEN. Dangeresque seen on the case. For real." Cut to an office scene with Strong Bad, wearing sunglasses, and Coach Z, wearing a turban.}

STRONG BAD: It's not going to be easy finding that missing tape.

COACH Z: Well, Dangeresque, if anyone can do it, I'm sure you can.

STRONG BAD: You're right, Renaldo. But the elevator's broken in this building. So I'm gonna have to jump! {makes a jumping motion}

{cuts to Strong Sad, wearing a paper bag on his head and oven mitts, standing on top of a ladder on the roof of Bubs' Concession Stand. He is pushed off and falls into a wading pool marked "shark pond". He walks out, and the shot is then edited so that it is Strong Bad walking away.}

{cuts to Strong Bad's basement, where Strong Bad and Strong Mad are standing.}

STRONG BAD: Either give me that tape, or punch me in the face.

{Strong Mad punches. Edits to Strong Sad, who gets punched in the face and goes flying back. We hear a crashing sound. Cuts to the field. Strong Bad is holding a mirror. Behind him are the missing tape and Homestar.}

STRONG BAD: Where is that tape?

{Homestar realizes he can be seen and moves away.}

{cuts to Bubs holding The Cheat.}

BUBS: Welcome to oblivion, Danger-skew! {pulls a lever}

{cuts to Strong Bad standing in the field, then edits to Strong Sad. A Heavy Lourde falls on Strong Sad.}

STRONG SAD: It's what I like to call a broken neck.

{cuts to Strong Bad and Marzipan in the field.}

MARZIPAN: I won't watch you die, Dangeresque.

STRONG BAD: Don't worry, Cutesy Buttons. Tonight, dying's not on the menu. So I'm gonna have to jump!

{Strong Sad is once again pushed off of Bub's Concession Stand, this time into a wading pool marked "Pie Factory". Edits to Strong Bad walking away. Cuts back to the office}

COACH Z: Sounds pretty dangerous.

STRONG BAD: {turns around} No. Sounds... Dangeresque.

{cuts back to the Compy}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Alright, you can all return from the edge of your seats. Wow, watching that gives me goosebumps every time, man. I mean, the stunts I do are so... done by me. And remember to watch out in June 2004 for "Dangerseque 3: The Criminal Projective". {a logo with this title appears} In 3D! {"3D" is added to the logo and the screen becomes drawn in red and blue lines, like a 3D movie.}

{The Paper comes down.}

Easter Eggs

  • At the very end be sure have your 3D glasses ready and click on the big "3D" part of the logo.
  • After the 3D spiel, be sure to click on the words "watch out" for some more 3D madness!

Fun Facts

  • The theme from the summer blockbuster "Dangeresque 2: This Time It's Not Dangereque 1" (instrumental bits of which can be heard in the email) is featured on the Strong Bad Sings CD.
  • The text of "The Local Newspapes" that appears in the beginning reads:
The Lemmer was treated for polar bear related injuries shortly after the 4th inning shenanigans. Officials say the bear 'wandered on down' from the North Pole with rich, creamy nougat on its mind. Nay-sayers have dismissed this as dismissable citing, "I think it might be just an inflatable polar bear, actually." The young gun was unavailable for a Young Guns 2 screening that took place in my basement a few months ago and I haven't forgiven him since. Seriously, Mark, I don't know what's up. We used to be so close and now you're acting all
  • This is accompanied by a picture of some Atlanta Braves players on a baseball field with a polar bear digitally added in the background.
  • "The Lemmer" in the above article is a reference to Mark LEMKE.
  • When Strong Sad falls into the wading pool the second time, watch the label very closely. It says "pie factory", but just for a split second it will say "shark pond" and then back to "pie factory".
  • The Newspaper says "Newspapes".
  • Dangeresque 1 has a directors cut, called: Dangeresque 1: The Directors Cut Not in 3-D
  • Strong Sad is wearing the oven mitts from the Yello Dello cartoon and The Best Decemberween Ever (Homestar quickly tosses them away before finding the Deep Impact DVD).
