STRONG BAD: {singing} Ooh hoo hoo hoo E-MAIL ME GIRL! {stops singing} Unh! Once times! Twice times!

{reading}

Dear strongbad,
did you ever think about letting the
cheat have some other privaleges 
since he helps you so much.

from your friend crazyclemens

{he says "crazyclemens" quickly} {he pronounces "privaleges" as pri-vah-lah-gez}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Privileges eh, C.C.? It does seem like The Cheat is overdue. Let's see, the last time I upgraded his privileges was when I reinstated his bathroom privileges; which he had previously abused. Let's see when he's due for an upgrade. {calling out} Oh the Cheat! {The Cheat walks up behind him} Oh the Che-! {The Cheat says something and it surprises Strong Bad, causing him to fall off his stool} WHOAH! Geeze, the Cheat! Can't sneak up on a brother like that! Lemme see your Strong Bad Reward Score Card. {The Cheat holds up a card titled just that, with four out of five points punched in} Ooh! You only need one more point to become a medallion gold plus club member!

{The Cheat squeaks with delight, and zips off. Chainsaw noises are heard}

STRONG SAD: {offscreen} Ow! Both my face and hands!

{The Cheat comes back}

STRONG BAD: Bwahahaha! That's definitely worth a point. {He punches out the last hole} Alright! Now let's see what new privileges await you! {opens a file called "medalliongoldplus.txt"} Oh yeah, look at some of these! The crisper drawer, I know you've been wanting to get in there! Ooh, and the mute button! You could do plenty with that! These are WAY better than the rewards Bubs gives out for selling his magazine subscriptions! "Oh, save up points to win a tropical vacation!" What a scam that was. So what are you gonna do with your newfound powers, the Ch- {He turns to find that The Cheat has already left} Whuh? The Cheat?

{The Cheat is in the crisper drawer in front of the TV, muting and unmuting it.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: {offscreen} Bing-bong!

{The Cheat responds with Cheat noises, Homestar walks on with a pizza in hand.}

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Hey, The Cheat! Bubs asked me to bring you this pizza you ordered. It's a large, thin crust, with mushrooms and Pop-tarts. {The Cheat squeaks} Okay! {Homestar puts the pizza on the couch} Soooo.... you wanna buy some magazine subscriptions?

THE CHEAT: {dismissively} Yeah, yeah, yeah...

HOMESTAR RUNNER: Aw, c'mon! Help me out! I'm trying to go to Acapulco.

{Strong Bad peeks his head in}

STRONG BAD: Well, C.C., The Cheat ended up in the crisper drawer. So until next week, so long, and thanks for all the privaleges... I guess...

{The Paper comes down}

Easter Eggs

  • You can no longer click on the word "abused" when Strong Bad says it, but originally it restarted the toon. Maybe this was a placeholder for something else, who knows.
  • You can click on the pizza box to see the top of it. (It says: "Bubs' Old Pizza 'It's-A Really Old'")
  • You can click on the magazines after the paper comes down to see the "Hardest Chord Ever" (be sure to do this BEFORE torching them, see below.) Note: The kid playing the chord has eleven fingers!!! Talk about a difficult chord!
  • After doing the above, you can also click on The Cheat's hand to get him to torch the lame magazines.

Fun Facts

  • "So long, and thanks for all the privaleges" is a reference to Douglas Adams' book, So Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
  • The Cheat is using the BMW Lighter to torch Homestar's magazines.
  • Three possible references for the TV show The Cheat is watching:
    • Duel, a 1971 TV movie starring Dennis Weaver as a commuter menaced by a mysterious, homicidal tanker truck driver. It was Stephen Spielberg's first feature-length film.
    • It may be a reference to the Generation 2 Transformer Staxx because his alternate mode was a truck.
    • It may also be a reference to the movie Maximum Overdrive, based on Stephen King's story about trucks that come to life and try to kill people.
  • "The Flying Vee" is a reference to Gibson's Flying V guitar. Gibson designed it in 1958, along with the Explorer, in an attempt to doff its conservative image. However, it worked too well, as it sold poorly at that time. It wasn't until the late 1960's and 70's, and especially the advent of heavy metal, that the Flying V gained renewed popularity.
