I think my favorite part of the whole gag (or at least before this toon) was left out.  How/when did Strong Bad tamper the DNA evidence?  Was he just trying to make up a cool story for The Cheat? [[User:Bad Bad Guy|Bad Bad Guy]] 18:41, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Another old conversation I'm bringing up, but I think it needs addressing.  (Note that I did just make a post about Strong Sad and French in yes, wrestling's talk.  I don't think this necessarily applies, especially since Marzipan is german in origin, I think...)  ''However'', I ''do'' think that Homestar's speech ''is'' a reference to a specific French word.  (that's a lot of italics..) Anyway, hear me out.  It seems to me that the "joke" is supposed to be that "Dew" sounds like the french word for 2 (Deux?  I dunno, I don't speak french).  Somehow homestar screws up the joke (Yeah, it's hard to screw up the pronunciation of a joke dependent on pronunciation, but it's homestar) and confuses it with the french word for 3 (trois?) and ends up with some odd pormanteau of the two...  It's complicated I know, but it seems to make sense.  Thoughts?

In response to Qermaq (nice name, by the way): Drop it? No way! I was just saying that when you add all his [Strong Sad's] rantings about soolnds and his maniacal laughter at the end of this toon together, you get a situation where it seems that Strong Sad has something to hide. [[User:Neox|Neox]]

Is it worth mentioning that this 'toon is only missing 3 major characters? (Strong Mad, the King of Town, and the Poopsmith) [[User:Bad Bad Guy|Bad Bad Guy]] 18:46, 11 June 2007 (UTC)
 
-
: There are other toons that miss only one or two major characters that we don't explicitly note. In fact, we don't even note every case in which all twelve appear (it's assumed that they do in Halloween episodes, for example, except of course the first which didn't include [[Homsar]]). --{{User:Jay/sig}} 18:48, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

== Homsar's pants ==
 
-
 
-
Should we mention the fact that Homsar mentions his "Easter pants" despite the fact he supposedly wears no pants? I think no, mainly because we can clearly see he has no pants, and that it's Homsar. He almost never means what he says (the almost meaning he hasn't spoken correctly since that one answering machine). {{User:Bluebry/sig}} 00:32, 29 June 2007 (UTC)

== Inside References ==
 
-
 
-
Regarding edit 486838, DeFender1031 says: that's not how inside references work
 
-
 
-
I'm not sure why listing SB's memory as being faulty isn't how an inside reference works. There is a dramatic difference between one flash back and his version of a flashback, which harkens back to several other instances of him changing events in his own memories. This refers back to [[highschool]]. So this could be either a direct reference back to that cartoon, or a running gag about Strong Bad's sketchy memory. Either way, it looks like an inside reference to me, and I thought the way I described it in the edit made this clear.

: The reason why your edit was reverted was the reference needs to be a specific character, running gag, or incident (such as in [[highschool]], there was the "doodle memory" Easter Egg of events in [[caper]]).  The inaccuracies of Strong Bad's memory, while well documented, are more of a general character trait.  To use another example, the behavior of Homsar's hat would not be an inside reference, because that's part of the character, not a reference to something specific. {{User:Wbwolf/sig}} 15:26, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

== To prevent an edit war ==

-
If you could explain what the " WHAAAAT??!!?&,:;%${}" is suppose to be reference to, then we can judge whether it should be kept.  Right now, it seems like an obscure or personal joke, which has no place in a Wiki page, much less in a transcript.  The transcript should be an accurate record what is said during the toon.  Adding the extra punctuation might be the norm in a written comic strip, but it is not a grammatical reflection of Strong Sad's line.  (As I noted in my original reversion, Strong Sad's line does have have braces.) {{User:Wbwolf/sig}} 15:19, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

:[[flashback]]. therefore it's a reference, therefore, unless it breaks a specific rule or standard it can stay. {{User:DeFender1031/sig}} 15:20, 19 August 2007 (UTC)
 
-
::Wbwolf is right; transcripts are supposed to provide an accurate description of the toon. This inside joke does not add anything to the transcript, does not accurately reflect Strong Sad's line, and will confuse anyone who does not know what it is referencing. {{User:Has Matt?/sig}} 15:29, 19 August 2007 (UTC)

==Who sent the email?==

I swear I hear Homestar say Dwai Dwah (Dry Dwah).  It would make sense that Homestar would spit out the normally sweet Mountain Dew if it has no sugar taste to it.  Though I do get the joke of Dwah Dwah.  I do still hear it as Dry Dwah though (obviously with his lack of Rs). - walker
