[edit] Transcript

STRONG BAD: Email! Email! Email! Email!

{reading email}

{Strong Bad stops reading after "fhqwhgads" to say:}

STRONG BAD: Whoa. Spelled fhqwhgads right. You wouldn't believe how many I get where they're like, "Hey Strong Bad, I love your fubugrass." Or "Dear Strong Bad, where's that fuguman?" Anyways...

{He continues reading, his voice getting progressively more incredulous as he does, as apparently he's shocked by the question. He also reads the name as "Sibbie?!" After he finishes, he says...}

STRONG BAD: Ugh... {typing} You people and your demands. Look, I'm not here to fulfill your every freakin' whim, alright? Make a song about me. Send Trogdor over to my house. Put on a purple thing and dance around! Well, I've had it! I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever make a song about the sibbie.

{A beat starts playing in the background, and Strong Bad types and reads along with it}

STRONG BAD: And I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever write a song about— {stops singing, but continues typing} HEY! WHAT!?? Where's that beat coming from?

{Zoom out a bit. Strong Bad turns to the side and sees The Cheat bobbing around as he plays a keyboard.}

STRONG BAD: Oh, look who thinks he's Clever Dan. What are you trying to do, man? Get out of here!

{The Cheat mutters something, picks up the keyboard, and walks behind Strong Bad's computer.}

STRONG BAD: Well, that brought this email to a screeching halt. My focus is all... crocused. Guess it's time for a break.

{Strong Bad exits stage left. The Cheat peeks up from behind the computer. Cut to Strong Bad's Basement. Strong Bad enters stage right. The TV emits canned laughter.}

STRONG BAD: And... whoop! {He leaps over the back of the couch, sitting down to watch TV.} Oh, this is the one where the guy's mom shows the guy's girlfriend the pictures of the guy when he was a baby.

TV VOICE: {sounding offended} MOM!!! {canned laughter, again}

STRONG BAD: Oh, the embarrassment.

{Strong Sad enters stage left, listening to an iPod.}

STRONG SAD: ...never, ever, ever, ever, ever write a song about Sibbie.

STRONG BAD: Hey! Shut up! Where'd you hear that?

STRONG SAD: Geez, I don't know. Some song I just downloaded off the Internet.

STRONG BAD: What?! Ugh. I gotta get out of here. {He exits stage left.}

STRONG SAD: {walks toward stage right} And I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever...

{Cut to The Field. Homestar Runner is standing next to a radio, occasionally bobbing left and right to the music.}

STRONG BAD: {singing on the radio} And I will never, ever, ever, ever, ever write a song about Sibbie.

{Strong Bad enters stage right.}

THE ANNOUNCER: {on the radio} And coming in at number 4, that was Strong Bad with "Song About Sibbie."

STRONG BAD: I didn't write a song about Sibbie! The Cheat just started playing some beat! I mean, I wasn't even— I didn't mean to— It was never my intention to— I FREAKIN' HATE SIBBIE!

THE ANNOUNCER: And debuting at number 3, it's Strong Bad with "I Freakin' Hate Sibbie!"

STRONG BAD: {singing on the radio} I freakin' hate Sibbie...

{Strong Bad screams. As he screams, he grabs the radio, piledrives it, kicks it over, and then suplexes the radio, damaging it so that it stops playing. He then stands up, breathing hard. His right eye twitches twice in succession.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Thanks, man! I'd just about had it with that talking toaster.

{The Paper comes down.}

[edit] Easter Eggs

  • Click on the words "purple thing" to see Strong Bad's Fruit of the Loom impression as purple grapes with the caption "lookin' good, SB."
  • At the very end, click on the booOOMbox to see Strong Bad teaching a class how to say "Fhqwhgads."
{Strong Bad and Homestar are standing in front of a chalkboard with "FHQWHGADS" written on it.}
STRONG BAD: "Fhqwhgads."
STRONG BAD: Say it with a flourish. "Fhqwhgads."
STRONG BAD: It doesn't sound like it looks. "Fhqwhgads."
COACH Z: {popping up in the foreground} Forhorglingrads!
STRONG BAD: Coach Z, I thought I asked you to leave, like, an hour ago.
STRONG MAD: {pushing Coach Z out of the way} DOUGLAS!!!
STRONG BAD: Whoa! We've had a breakthrough! You get a gold star.

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Explanations

[edit] Trivia

  • The voice shouting "MOM!" on the TV is Matt, a friend of The Brothers Chaps. This was mentioned in the no loafing DVD commentary.
  • The menu on Strong Sad's iPod reads "playlists", "songs", and "settings", but a Rev. 1 iPod's menu should read "Playlists", "Artists", "Songs", "Settings", "About", and "Now Playing".
    • However, it is possible to change the settings of an iPod to customize the main menu.
  • The label on the disk in the floppy disk container reads "50 K race walk".
  • The YouTube description for this email is "Strong Bad refuses to make a song about Sibbie. He'll never do it. Never. Wait."

[edit] Remarks

  • The voice of Strong Bad on the radio and the lyrics Strong Sad sings include the phrase " about Sibbie." However, Strong Bad said " about the Sibbie." Furthermore, the beat had not entered by the time he said Sibbie.
    • Similarly, the lyric for "I Freaking Hate Sibbie" doesn't sound like what Strong Bad screamed.
  • The beat generated by The Cheat's keyboard stops by itself.

[edit] Goofs

  • The Cheat's keyboard appears to have an extra key between E and F and two extra keys between B and C.
  • When Strong Bad performs the vertical suplex on the radio, the radio is picked up speaker-up, and lands speaker-up. The way this move is performed, it should have landed speaker-down.
  • When the camera zooms out to reveal The Cheat and his keyboard playing the beat, the contrast dial is gone on the Compy.

[edit] Fixed Goofs

  • When this email was first released, Strong Bad had typed "stongbad_email.exe" as in the previous email, with no ill effects. This error was corrected about a year later.

[edit] Inside References

  • Strong Mad saying "Douglas!" in the "fhqwhgads class" Easter egg is a reference to cheat talk.
  • The "fhqwhgads class" itself is a reference to A Jorb Well Done.
  • The radio which Homestar is listening to also appears in A Jumping Jack Contest.
  • Strong Bad calling The Cheat "Clever Dan" is yet another reference to the running gag of Dan.
  • The Cheat adding a beat to Strong Bad's "song" is an example of a musical moment.
