Cory, North Dakota</blockquote>

+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' Whoa. The entire town of Cory, North Dakota, decided to email me. That was nice of them.
+
-
 
+
-
''{Strong Bad's voice echoes and sounds as if it's coming out of a megaphone.}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' ''{typing}'' Citizens of Cory! Thank you for your email. Hang on. Let me get the Cheat.
+
-
 
+
-
''{Strong Bad turns around in his chair and calls for The Cheat, his voice normal}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' Hey, the Che—Oh! The Cheat. 
+
-
 
+
-
''{Strong Bad sees that The Cheat is standing beside him.}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' Some town here can't understand you. Say something normal, like-er-um-uhhh...  Douglas.
+
-
 
+
-
'''THE CHEAT:''' Meh!
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' Douglas?
+
-
 
+
-
'''THE CHEAT:''' ''{The Cheat noises}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' ''{emphatically}'' Douglas!
+
-
 
+
-
'''THE CHEAT:''' Meh!
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' ''{turning back to his computer, typing}'' Well, I guess you can't expect much from a furry little man who hangs out with my brother all day. ''{stops typing}'' Speaking of...
+
-
 
+
-
''{Strong Bad turns around again, calling for Strong Mad.}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' Hey, Strong Ma—Whoa!
+
-
 
+
-
''{He sees that Strong Mad is standing beside him.}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' Strong Mad. Say Douglas.
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG MAD:''' DUH!
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' Douglas!
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG MAD:''' DUH...
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' ''{emphatically}'' Douglas!
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG MAD:''' Duh?
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' ''{turning back to his computer again and starts typing}'' So, there you have it, people of Cory, North Dakota. ''{stops typing}'' Eh—oh. Hang on a second.
+
-
 
+
-
''{Strong Bad turns away again}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' Hey! Strong Sad!
+
-
 
+
-
''{Strong Sad arrives.}''
+
-
 
+
-
''{Strong Bad hits him in the stomach with the keyboard.}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG SAD:''' Douglas!
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' ''{typing}'' So, there you have it, people of Cory, North Dakota. The Cheat can't say anything normal, like Douglas.
+
-
 
+
-
''{Something that sounds like "Douglas" said in a The Cheat voice is heard off to the left and Strong Bad turns around}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' What the— Who said Douglas?
+
-
 
+
-
''{"Douglas" is heard again, but then it cuts to a window.}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' Oh, wait, it's just the branch of that old sycamore rubbing against the window. It was nothing to worry about after all.
+
-
 
+
-
''{Strong Bad turns back to his computer again.}''
+
-
 
+
-
'''STRONG BAD:''' ''{typing}'' So, I guess you guys are just gonna have to learn how to speak The Cheat. I know a little myself... ''{stops typing}'' You know, like, ''{speaks some The Cheat}'', and, um, ''{speaks more The Cheat}'', you know... I don't know what any of that means, but, uh, it really seems to tick The Cheat off when I say it, so, I say it to him all the time. Anyways, give it up for me! ...Guys?

+

:'''ANNOUNCER:''' ...and language is what makes people talk. Let's begin.

+
-
:'''THE CHEAT:''' ''(The phrase The Cheat used when commenting on [[The King of Town]]'s pumpkin at the [[Pumpkin Carve-nival]])''

+
-
:'''ANNOUNCER:''' Means: "What, don't you like this costume?"
+

+
-
:'''ANNOUNCER:''' Means: "Check it out, this is going to be great. Just say 'Screw all y'all!'." And now on to Lesson 2: All the swears...
+
-
:''{There is a record scratching noise and the recording stops.}''
+
-
 
+
-
== Fun Facts ==
+
-
===Trivia===
+
-
*According to the [[Inkhole Interview]], [[Mike Chapman]] provides the voice of Strong Sad instead of [[Matt Chapman|Matt]] when he says "Douglas".
+
-
*The label on the disk in the floppy disk container reads "[[Floppy Disk Container#lode runner|lode runner]]".
+
-
*There is no such city as Cory, North Dakota, according to [[Wikipedia:List of cities in North Dakota|Wikipedia]].
+
-
*The record case reads:
+
-
<blockquote>

-

-
===Remarks===
+
-
*At the end where Strong Bad speaks The Cheat, he says he doesn't know what that means, even though he can normally understand The Cheat well.
+
-
 
+
-
===Goofs===
+
-
*When Strong Bad types "Hang on a second." and calls "Hey, Strong Sad!", the screen says "Hnag on a second" after the change in camera view.
+
-
*When Strong Bad calls for Strong Mad, while he's talking to him, the screen still has the text from the previous scene, when it should be "Well, you can't expect much..."
+
-
*After Strong Bad calls for The Cheat, the word "the" in The Cheat's name disappears from the screen.
+
-
 
+
-
===Glitches===
+
-
*While the "Learn to speak The Cheat" record is playing, you can click the word "thorax" on the case to go back to the [[Strong Bad Email]] menu. (This is because this word is layered above the "back" button.)
+
-
*You can click [[The Paper]] even though it is underneath the record case.
+
-
 
+
-
===Inside References===
+
-
*147, the number of glasses of melonade that The Cheat apparently offered to Homestar in [[A Jumping Jack Contest]] (according to the record in the Easter egg), is exactly the number of marshmallows that Homestar had to say he'd eat in [[Fluffy Puff Commercial]]. Additionally, in the third-to-last take of the same, Homestar mistakenly says he'd drink 147 glasses of melonade as well.
+
-
*In the postcard Easter egg, you can see "Greetings from [[Monkey D]]". In this egg, Monkey D is wearing a shirt that says "I &#9829; the Cheese".  In [[vacation]], he had a similar shirt that said "I &#9829; Stong Band".
+
-
*The LP was made by Thorax, also known as [[Thorax Corporation]].
+
-
 
+
-
===Real-World References===
+
-
*Strong Bad's reaction to the sycamore branch could be a reference to a cliche in children's books of trees making scary noises and shadows.
+
-
 
+
-
===Fast Forward===
+
-
*Strong Mad finally learns how to say "Douglas" in an Easter egg in the email [[sibbie]].
+
-
*The sycamore limb appears again in the CGI portion of [[strongbad_email.exe Disc One|Disc 1]] of the [[strongbad_email.exe|Strong Bad Email DVD]]. Strong Sad also says, "Douglas."
+
-
 
+
-
== DVD Version ==
+
-
*The Cheat's first "Meh!" seems to have been accidentally omitted.
+
-
*The dialogue for the record Easter egg seems to have been passed through a sound filter to make it sound old and scratchy.
