STRONG BAD: {clears screen} Oh, {typing, speaking suavely} well, Brian, maybe you and I could— {stops typing} uh— {becomes shocked and angry} hey... BRIAN!? What the crap? {typing} Look, man. Unless Brian is short for... Brianrietta or Brian-Sue or something like that it's just not gonna work out between you and me, okay? {skips down some space} Sorry to crush your hopes and dreams, - Strong Bad {stops typing} Okay, so until next week... 1, 2, 3, email me! 1, 2, 4, email me more!

Fun Facts


  • The Brothers Chaps did several important things for the first time with this email:
    • The email uses a new typing sound effect—without the buzz.
    • Strong Bad begins using his current voice (he no longer has his quasi-Mexican accent).
    • Strong Bad's head is longer and the red color is darker.
    • This is the first email using the current style of animation, where Strong Bad's head, rather than his mouth, moves. This was done to shorten the amount of time it took to animate, though the Chaps noted it now "takes way longer than it ever took to just make his mouth move."
    • Note the highlights on Strong Bad's eyes.
  • This is one of the only emails to use differing margins.
  • This is one of the very few emails where Strong Bad actually signs his name at the end.
  • This email had the longest update delay (71 days).
    • This is also the first email put on the site after The Brothers Chaps decided to make Strong Bad Email a "relatively" weekly feature.


  • The keyboard can still be heard when Strong Bad pauses at the end of sentences and when he pauses to type Brianrietta and Brian-Sue.
