STRONG BAD: Chee-wit, chee-wit, chee-wi-chee-wi-email.

{reading}

{Strong Bad says "Lasko" low, long, and drawn-out like a foghorn and says "WI" as "Wisacondasin"}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Well, Lasko {said as before}, The Cheat is not very popular and he never really gets many emails and um, to tell you the truth, I don't even think he has a computer. {stops typing} All right, next email.

{He makes a vocal sound effect as the next email scrolls up (henceforth "vocal sfx"), and starts reading.}

{Strong Bad stops reading at "i like him WAY better then—"}

STRONG BAD: Augh, seen enough of that one.

{vocal sfx; reading}

{Strong Bad stops reading for a second after the first sentence, and says "Oh, thank you." His mood sours for the rest of the email, however, and Strong Bad says "Dumpo" instead of "Mito"}

STRONG BAD: Geez, all these Cheat emails. Moving on.

{Cut to The Cheat watching the email on Tangerine Dreams in his computer room. He gets progressively angrier with each email Strong Bad deletes.}

{vocal sfx; reading}

STRONG BAD: That's funny, Haelee. I think The Cheat is deleted. {imitates buzzer noise}

{vocal sfx, reading}

{The Cheat storms off in a fit. Cut back to just Strong Bad at Compy.}

STRONG BAD: Come on, people! He's not even that cute. He looks like a... a cheese. {The Cheat walks up to him, glaring} Or maybe an anvil.

THE CHEAT: {Angry The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: {nervously} Uhhh... which are two of the finest things in life. A cheese... or an anvil. Hey, The Cheat. Just, uh, talking you up to one of the fans here.

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: Oh. So you been... watching the email, huh?

THE CHEAT: {The Cheat noises}

STRONG BAD: No, I haven't been holding out on you. I made all those emails up! Uh, most of the emails you get are not that friendly, lemme tell you. If you just turn around for a second, I could show you... {pause} HUTTAH! {He quickly tapes a piece of paper to Compy reading "the cheat" covering the place where Strong Bad's name usually appears}

{reading}

{Strong Bad reads in a loud monotone to reflect the caps lock being on.}

STRONG BAD: {to The Cheat} See? This guy doesn't like that you don't have a shirt on, and he thinks your gloves are stupid. {opens new email} And then there's this one:

{reading}

STRONG BAD: {To The Cheat} I've been wondering about that, too. What is with you and those boxing gloves anyway?

THE CHEAT: {Grumpy The Cheat noises, and a black cloud of smoke escapes from his head. He walks away.}

STRONG BAD: So okay bye! Whooh. I think I handled that pretty well. That coulda been... awkward. I deserve a reward. {He runs take-a-break.exe, which is a screen saver of a beach} Aahhh... so relaxing. Fshhhhhhhhh! Fshhhhhhhhh! Listen to the waves, man. {A bird flaps past.} Oh, hello my wingèd friend!

{The Paper comes down.}

[edit] Easter Eggs
