Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People has many responses when you talk to various characters and interact with various objects. These are the responses from 8-Bit Is Enough.

On these pages, A → B (right arrow) means that the response happens when object A is used on thing B, or in the case of talking to other characters, the indicated sequence of chat topic icons are chosen.

A short horizontal line between two or more responses, such as the one above, means only one of the responses is heard at a time, and that the action results in a different response each time it occurs.

STRONG BAD: Whatever the heck those are, they don't seem to work with that.

[edit] 8-Bit Key

STRONG BAD: I don't think this key's gonna open anything, except maybe a 200 year old door.

STRONG BAD: Even if I wanted to shine a light on that, I'm pretty sure this crummy 2D pixel lantern would be absolutely useless.

STRONG BAD: That doesn't need my signature.

[edit] 8-Bit Teabag

STRONG BAD: I don't think that's how you make tea.

[edit] Boxer Joe

STRONG BAD: All right, Snake Boxer. Do your stuff!
SNAKE BOXER: {on-screen caption} ...
STRONG BAD: Why won't he hit that?
HOMESTAR: {pops up} Guy's got a thing for snakes, Strong Bad. Don't ask him about it; he gets real quiet and does that thousand-yard stare. {vanishes}
STRONG BAD: Oh yeah.

STRONG BAD: He won't go for it. Snake Boxer may only do one thing, but he's the best at it.

[edit] Cell Phone

{When using it indoors}
STRONG BAD: {annoyed} No signal? You'd think a cell phone this giant'd have a better antenna. I better wait until I'm in a wide open space. {puts the phone away}

STRONG BAD: Hey, Red Square! Err, Blue Square.

[edit] Quarter

STRONG BAD: I don't want to get Homestar's digestive juices all over that.

[edit] Quest Thingie

[edit] Rather Dashing

STRONG BAD: Up and at 'em, short pants!
RATHER DASHING: {text displayed} That be not a princess! I only rescueth printhetheth... err, princesses!

[edit] Scorpion Food

STRONG BAD: I don't think they'll want that.

[edit] Snakes

STRONG BAD: I better not use my snakes here. They could slither away.

STRONG BAD: The TrogSword won't work on anything but the Trogdor...'d.

[edit] Trophy

STRONG BAD: I better keep this trophy for someone who needs it.

[edit] Taking photos with ghosts

{First time only}
STRONG BAD: What the? What's that ghost doing in my picture? And that box wasn't there before! Man, this is seriously giving me the j-j-j-jibblies.

STRONG BAD: Another ghost in the frame?

[edit] Main Menu

{When opening the menu}
STRONG BAD: I'm in the middle of something, The Cheat. You do it this time.

STRONG BAD: {unamused} Quit it!

[edit] Map

[edit] Gel-Arshie's Backstage

STRONG BAD: I better find a place for the Gel-Arshie game on here, so I know to avoid it.

[edit] Peasantry Inn

STRONG BAD: Now I've gotta find a place for the Peasantry Inn on my map.

[edit] Peasantry Forest

STRONG BAD: After all this time I can finally put Peasantry on my map! But where should it go?

[edit] Stinkoman 20X6

STRONG BAD: It's gonna be a challenge, but there's got to be room for Stinkoman 20X6 somewhere on here.

[edit] Trogdor Machine

STRONG BAD: I better write down where my Trogdor machine ran off to on my map, so I don't forget.

[edit] Videlectrix Halfathlon

STRONG BAD: Hmm, where should I put the Videlectrix Halfathlon on my map?

[edit] Hints

{Before talking to Strong Sad about the Trogdor machine}
STRONG BAD: Strong Sad must know where the Trogdor machine went. Or at least I can hear him cry about getting beaten up by it. That should be good for a laugh.
{Before attempting to open the Trogdor cabinet the first time}
STRONG BAD: The only way I'm gonna get to play my TROGDOR! game again is to use this case key to open up the cabinet.
{Before acquiring the Metal Detector}
STRONG BAD: I've got to get back to my room. I'm expecting that photo crew from "Filthy Living" magazine to show up any second.
{Before recovering Homestar's quarter}
STRONG BAD: Homestar's so stupid, he's probably standing on his lucky quarter and doesn't realize it.
{Before recovering Homestar's phone}
STRONG BAD: I better call my agent and see how "Dangeresque 3" is doing at the box office. Now where did I put Homestar's cell phone when I stole it?
{After calling Videlectrix for the logic board}
STRONG BAD: The Videlectrix guys said they'd drop off my package near Bubs' Concession Stand.
{Before entering the game cabinet}
HOMESTAR: {pep talking} Are you gonna let that dragon walk all over you like that, or are you gonna get inside that video game and take him out?
STRONG BAD: I'm still deciding!
{Before successfully opening a crate}
HOMESTAR: Man, I'm dying to know what's inside those crates. Can't you get a crowbar, or find some way to punch 'em open?
{After opening one crate, but not the second one}
HOMESTAR: Yeah, hang on, I'll ask him. Hey, Strong Bad, we need some more snakes in here. Don't ask. Could you just like, pack 'em up in a crate or something and send them to us?
{Before obtaining the Light Musket}
HOMESTAR: You're gonna need some kind of weapon if you want to kill a big old dragon like Trogdor.

HOMESTAR: Man, Marzipan's been throwing those crates around like they're goin' out of style! I wonder where they're all going?
{Before entering Peasantry}
HOMESTAR: Hey, SB, I hear those guys in that Peasant's Quest game have a lot of XP killing dragons. Just an FYI from the HSR.
{While the House of Strong is haunted}
HOMESTAR: Have you checked your baby brother's room? The ghosts are coming from inside the house!

HOMESTAR: Whenever I get too scared, I like to go downstairs and turn on the TV. And then hide under the couch.
{After the ghost sprites leave the House of Strong}
HOMESTAR: {pops up} Now you know what that Paul Revere guy looks like, solving that code wheel should be no problem! {vanishes}
{After gaining Gel-Arshie}
HOMESTAR: {pops up} I'm glad that Gel-Arshie guy is stuck in his own game. I don't like the way his brain is right there, starin' at you, goin' "THINK! THIIINK!" {vanishes}
{Before giving The Poopsmith what he wants}
HOMESTAR: Strong Bad, aren't you supposed to be finding a bunch of grapes or something for the Poopsmith?
STRONG BAD: He didn't want grapes, he needed rivets.
HOMESTAR: Oh, is THAT what those were? I thought it was grapes.
{Before the Limozeen Space Machine joins your party}
HOMESTAR: {pops up} When you get the Limozeen Space Machine fixed, make sure he checks the wiper fluid. That's very important! Plus I got a coupon. {vanishes}
{Before rescuing Bubs from Marzipan}
HOMESTAR: {pops up} I'm only telling you this 'cuz you're my best friend—
STRONG BAD: {interrupts} No I'm not.
HOMESTAR: —but I think Marzipan's on the Total Load. A little broomstick like her shouldn't be able to throw that far. {vanishes}
{Before speaking to Strong Sad}
HOMESTAR: {pops up} They say Trogdor's Lair is behind some pass through the mountains. Have you seen anything like that? {vanishes}
{While at the Peasantry Inn area but before talking to Strong Sad}
HOMESTAR: {pops up} Oh! Oh! I remember this game! Don't you have to talk to the guy who's guarding the path to where Trogdor hides out? {vanishes}
{Before going to Stinkoman 20X6}
HOMESTAR: {pops up} I'm just goin' over some of my favorite classic hremails. "Dear Homestar, what would you look like as a Japanese cartoon? And what would it be about?"
STRONG BAD: {annoyed} Hey, shut up! That's MY sbemail! {Homestar vanishes.}
{While inside Stinkoman 20X6}
HOMESTAR: {pops up} This game is too slow, Strong Bad! Faster! FASTER! {vanishes}

HOMESTAR: {pops up} Still no sign of that TrogSword, SB, but I'm keepin' an eye out for it! {vanishes}
Before talking to the Stinkoman 20X6 enemies}
HOMESTAR: Being in the video game really makes you appreciate what the level one monsters have to go through. Let's hear it for the level one monsters!

HOMESTAR: Hey Strong Bad, which Stinkoman bad guy do you think is the dreamiest? Most days I think it's Postlethwaite, but there's just something about Browntant.
{Before completing the stage repairs at Stinkoman 20X6}
HOMESTAR: {pops up} This game's all broken and buggy. They should get somebody in here to fix it. {vanishes}

HOMESTAR: {jumping} Whee! Whee! Whe- oh, sorry, Strong Bad. I forgot you can't jump.
{After the TrogSword has been acquired}
HOMESTAR: Uh, isn't Trogdor's lair back in Peasantry?
{If the player is going through the Hallways of Trogdor's Lair without using party members to defeat enemies}
HOMESTAR: {pops up, annoyed} What a rip-off! What was the point of picking up all that stuff in your inventory if you can't use it in a shootin' game? {vanishes}
{Before exposing Ultimate Trogdor's weak spots}
HOMESTAR: Your weapons aren't working, Strong Bad. Maybe you can give him the creeps until he runs away.
{After exposing Ultimate Trogdor's weak spots}
HOMESTAR: Trogdor must have more weak spots hidden all over!
{After defeating Ultimate Trogdor}
HOMESTAR: {half-heartedly} We better get out of here before the roof caves in! If only we had a way to unlock that giant lock!

[edit] Cheat Commandos Topplegangers Traction Figures

[edit] Swampslash

STRONG BAD: No way! It's a limited-edition unreleased Cheat Commandos action figure! I don't believe it. This one is Swampslash, leader of the shady mercenary commando biker gang and book club, the Topplegangers.

[edit] Dryghost

STRONG BAD: Another unreleased Cheat Commandos figure! This one is Dryghost, the Topplegangers' bad-seed second-in-command! And he's still in the package! I'm gonna be SO rich!

[edit] Subtlefuge

STRONG BAD: All right! It's Subtlefuge, easily the manliest and most mysterious of the Topplegangers! And Crackotage's evil twin! Is he a good guy? Is he a bad guy? With that kind of chest hair, does it even matter?

[edit] Fudgeclank

STRONG BAD: {excited} This... cannot... be happening. It's a brand new figure for Fudgeclank, the Topplegangers' "wild card". They only made like a dozen of these before they had to do a recall for what they referred to as "Irresponsible Causation of Nightmares and Subsequent Wet Beds". I heard that if you combine the packages for all four Topplegangers, it makes the Deluxe Submarine Junkyard Playset! I gotta get back to my room and see if it works!

[edit] Good Graphicketeers Cards

{After obtaining all four}
STRONG BAD: {excited} Oh, boy! Now that I've got all four of the Good Graphicketeers cards, I can put them together to form... {The cards come together on screen and flip over to their backs to reveal a bigger picture; Strong Bad isn't amused.} ...a picture of a stick of gum.

[edit] 100% Completion

STRONG BAD: {surprised} Videlectrix is giving away unlicenced me shirts? {The Strong Bad shirt item appears on screen.} I gotta talk to my made-up lawyer about this. {The shirt leaves the screen.} Would've been cooler if I was wearing a shirt with me on it, and then that one was wearing a shirt with me on it... {speaks in a grittier tone} ...and then that one was wearing a shirt with me on it... {mumbles}
