"I hate you! I hate you! I hate you!"

Strong Bad's relationship with Strong Sad usually consists of Strong Bad hurting or making fun of Strong Sad, though not all the time. It appears that Strong Bad is at least partly responsible for Strong Sad's depression; Strong Sad writes that in Strong Bad's absence, "I feel... cooler, and... less like I suck so bad."
