We get to listen to messages on Strong Bad's answering machine for a change, regarding his search for the missing Lappy and a "kick-awesome guitarist".

Places: Bulletin Board

Date: September 25, 2006

Running Time: 2:02

Page Title: I do my own GRFX



{A close-up of a bulletin board appears and remains for the entirety of the cartoon. A Limozeen poster, an advertisement for battle axe lessons, and a couple business cards are pinned to the board behind a large notice for Strong Bad's missing Lappy 486 computer. The notice also requests inquiries from guitarists.}

{A touch-tone telephone is heard dialing. The telephone line rings and Strong Bad's answering machine picks up}

STRONG BAD: Thank you for calling attractive Strong Bad. If you have any information regarding my missing and full-on favorite fold-em-up computer, please leave your name and number. And if you have any hot lixx, please shred them after the tone.

{The answering machine beeps}

STRONG SAD: {in a very deep, seemingly disguised voice} Hello, Strong Bad. I'm waiting for you. {coughs, and begins speaking in normal voice} Oh, excuse me! I had one of those spit bubbles stuck in my throat. Anyways, I'm waiting for you here at the bus station. I just got back from my trip to the Regrettable History Museum. And you were supposed to pick me up... 3 days ago! I guess I'll just be waitin' for you here at the staysh. Listen to me: I've been here so long I'm on a nickname basis with the bus station.

{The answering machine beeps}

{a distorted guitar plays clumsy licks, ending in a downward slide}

THE KING OF TOWN: Ow! In case your mind wasn't totally blown by that blathering solo, my name's "Furious Fingers," from Los Angeles. I'm from L.A.! I own seventeen guitars, with a combined total of forty-three necks. I can provide my own leather pants, and a really cool castle where we can shoot all our videos. Oh, and I also did not eat your laptop computer. Gimme a call, "Furious Fingers", "Ow", "Leather pants", "from L.A."

{The answering machine beeps}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {sounding exactly like Marzipan} Hi, Strong Bad. This is your next-door neighbor the crocodile. Can I borrow a cup of sugar? I'm going to make some puppy-dough cookies tonight... {coughs, switches to his own voice, coughs} Ooh! Got a spit bubble stuck in my throat. Anyway, Strong Bad, I was serious about the sugar. And... the crocodile thing.

{The answering machine beeps}

Easter Eggs

"A Trip to the Moon?"
  • When Strong Sad says "Regrettable History Museum", click on the picture of Lappy to see a postcard from the museum.
  • At the end, click on the yellow paper showing the left half of Dolph Hauldhagen to hear his answering machine recording.
DOLPH HAULDHAGEN: Thank you for calling Dolph Hauldhagen, the Instruc-TOR. How many times a day do you ask yourself, "Why do I suck?" I firmly believe that with my battle axe lessons, we can cut that down to two or three. Meet me Wednesday nights at 6 PM in Monty Gym. Oh, and leave your axe in your car until the Pilates class is over. Man, those chicks scare easy.

Fun Facts


  • This toon was released one week following the SBEmail cliffhangers, where the Lappy was stolen.


  • This toon doesn't have any "Back" button at the end.
  • Despite stating that his class is on Wednesday evenings at 6pm, Dolph's flyer in the toon still reads "Sat. 6am-9am".

Inside References

  • A Dolph Hauldhagen flyer, previously seen in other days, can be seen in the background.
  • The Limozeen poster is from the Strong Bad Sings and Other Type Hits CD booklet.
  • The poster in the top right corner with "Wednesday" on it is also featured on the CD booklet. It advertises "Strong Bad live in West Rekjavik".
  • The postcard in the Easter Egg is another reference to The Moon.
  • The leftmost tab on the missing Lappy flyer reads "strond bad," which was spelled that way in lunch special and Strongest Man in the World.
  • The King of Town playing guitar on Strong Bad's answering machine is similar to when he did the same thing on Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 13.2 ("Not Talkin' Bout Butter")

Real-World References

  • The deep-voiced stranger sounds very similar to the Jigsaw Killer from Saw.
  • A Trip To The Moon was a groundbreaking 1902 silent film by illusionist George Méliès.
