"Are we rescued yet?"

Strong Bad Email #52

Strong Bad imagines the lurking horrors of being stranded on an island with Homestar.

Cast (in order of appearance): Strong Bad, Homestar Runner



STRONG BAD: Strong Bad Emails are a part of this balanced breakfast.

{reading the email}

Dear Strong Bad, 
What would you do if you were stuck
on a desert island with Homestar

Yami Yugi

STRONG BAD: {typing} Well, Yami Yugi, {says the name hesitantly} I suspect it would be like most cartoons. You know, we'd start to go nuts after a while, and I'd look at Homestar and he would look like a big steak, and then Homestar would look at me and I'd look like, you know,...some kind of brownie sundae. So we'd chase each other around the island, trying to eat each other. And at some point my foot would look like a sandwich, and I would put salt on it and try to eat it, and it'd be like, "Ahh, it's my foot!" But that's a best case scenario. I'm sure in real life it would probably be a lot more annoying and painful with Homestar involved. {when he says "Homestar", he types "Dumpface"}

{cut to Homestar and Strong Bad on an island}



HOMESTAR RUNNER: Are we rescued yet?

STRONG BAD: You're gonna need to get rescued in a second if you don't quit asking me that.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Ohhhhhhhh... Hey, Strong Bad.


HOMESTAR RUNNER: Is there ice cream yet?

STRONG BAD: You're gonna need to get ice cream in a second if you don't quit asking me that. You know... 'cause I'm gonna hit you... and you'll need the ice cream... to stop the swelling.

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, Stinkoman.

STRONG BAD: Um... did you just call me Stinkoman?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Yes sir, I did.

STRONG BAD: Geez. You don't happen to have a gun on your side of the island, do you?

HOMESTAR RUNNER: No. Hey Strong Bad, check this out! {turns away}

STRONG BAD: Oh, don't start with that...

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Toons! {A ocean liner passes by with a loud "toot"}

STRONG BAD: Homestar...

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Games! {An angry-looking, red-eyed Moby Dick-style white whale, with harpoons embedded in its body, emerges from the left side of the water. It spurts water from its blowhole and then goes back into the water.}

STRONG BAD: Don't do another -

HOMESTAR RUNNER: E-mail! {A propeller plane with a "WEAR A BIKINI" banner attached to it flies by}


HOMESTAR RUNNER: I love doing that. {A bottle is washed up on the island.}

STRONG BAD: Hey, check it out. A message in a bottle. {takes a piece of paper out of the bottle and reads it} What?

       January 20, 1985
      Stanford Stadium
    Stanford, California
    Miami       San Francisco
   Dolphins         49ers

Super Bowl Nineteen... Miami Dolphins vs. San Fransisco 49ers... {sarcastically} great.


STRONG BAD: This is the worst deserted island ever.

Easter Eggs

  • At the end of this one you can click on Strong Bad and Homestar to make them turn into various things.

Fun Facts

  • One of the things Strong Bad turns into is a pile of marshmallows with a cigar and eyepatch. This is from Meet Marshie.
  • The 49ers beat the Dolphins 38-16 in Super Bowl XIX.
  • Homestar called Strong Bad Stinkoman. This is the name Strong Bad will use for his 20X6 counterpart in japanese cartoon.
  • The name of the person who wrote the email, Yami Yugi, is also the name of a character from the popular anime series Yu-Gi-Oh!
  • When Homestar yells out, "Toons," "Games," and "E-mail", various things pop out of the water. This is a reference to Main Page 3. However, on the Main Page 3, the plane flies past when you hover over "Store" instead of "E-mail".
  • One of the things you can make Homestar turn into is the same guitar Strong Bad used as a hand in the easter egg of new hands.

DVD Version

  • The DVD Version adds a hidden creator's commentary. To access it, switch your DVD player's audio language selection when watching this email.


MATT: Welcome back, I'm Matt Chapman.

MIKE: I'm my brother Mike.

MATT: What?

MIKE: Isn't, uh, sorry.

MATT: Yeah? Go ahead.

MIKE: Oh, I don't remember what I was going to say. I like this email, though. I like the, um, visuals.

MATT: This is a lot, this is pretty much referencing, I mean it's done a lot in cartoons, but there's that one Bugs Bunny where he's on the desert island with those two -- there's that one tall skinny guy and one fat short guy. That's where a lot of this comes from. I think they see each other as a steak and a hot dog. And I think that Bugs tricks one of them into eating his own foot at some point probably.

MIKE: This is the origin of the term Stinkoman too.

MATT: It's true. We were just screwin' around and I said the word Stinkoman.

MIKE: I think so. But I like that scene right there.

MATT: Yeah, Mike keeps talking about wanting to revisit this little desert island scene

MIKE: It might be revisited by the time you're listening to this commentary.

MATT: Not if i have anything to say about it.

MIKE: matt hates me.

MATT: I'm just kidding. Look, there it was! Yeah, see?

MIKE: He did, yeah. You haven't got a babboon in your pocket, have yiy?

MATT: There you go, Mike.

MATT: Yeah, thanks. I love this. Those's actually are incorrect, aren't they? That's not exactly what he does on that menu page.

MIKE: Oh, maybe, yeah, maybe not. Look at those clouds. They're a little different than usual, aren't they?

MATT: Maybe. Oh, that's nice, that's--I remember Scott Edwards was over for that one. I think it snowed.

MIKE: Dave Brown, eh--

MATT: And then it snowed and we didn't have to go to school the next day.

MIKE: I think you're right.

MATT: No, it was great.
