SBEmail Menu Description: Strong Bad receives an email from two sisters asking if he has a girlfriend.



STRONG BAD: Ah, the old girl's working again. What do you got for me?

{He says "There is two of us" in a sing-song voice.}

STRONG BAD: {after half a second stunned silence...} Ohh, there's two of them! {typing; speaking seductively} Well, Ali. There's one of me...

STRONG BAD: {seductively; no break in tone of voice} A-deleted... {Tandy buzzes as "DELETED!!" flashes on the screen.} {shocked} DELETED?! What?! Oy, what happened? No! Undeleted! Undeleted!

{Strong Bad repeatedly hits the keyboard, resulting in "undeleted" 3 times, then "do something" and "anything!"}

STRONG BAD: I didn't mean to do that! Awwww, man! {wailing} Come back, Ali! Come back, Ali's sister! You two meant everything to me!

{Strong Bad hits his head on the keyboard 3 times during the last sentence, resulting in "head", "hit" and "keyboard"}

STRONG BAD: Okay, calm down. Maybe she'll email me again. {clears screen} I'll just... hang out here for a while and try to picture which one of them is hotter. Ali or Ali's sister.

{"Thought bubbles" appear, showing Ali as a blonde and her sister as brunette}

STRONG BAD: Ali... Ali's sister... Ali... Ali's sister...

{The Tandy dings and displays "You have 1 new e-mail"}

STRONG BAD: Oh, there she is! Okay, here we go.

{reading slowly}

STRONG BAD: What? {typing} You're not Ali. You're not even literate. Oh! Though, I have just the thing for you... DELETED!

{The Tandy buzzes again and displays "message saved. forever."}

STRONG BAD: Oh, that's great. Great, thank you. Yeah, go ahead and save that one, why don't you, yeah. So I can treasure it for years and years, and show it to my kids. The ones I should be having with Ali and Ali's sister! {hangs his head} I hate this computer.

{The Paper comes down}

Easter Eggs

  • When the pictures of the sisters appear, click on them to have Strong Bad imagine two different variations.

Fun Facts


  • When this email was first released, Strong Bad's head typed, "bam—bam—bigalow", the name of a professional wrestler, albeit misspelled. This was later changed to the current, "head—hit—keyboard". The reason for the change is unknown.
  • When Strong Bad is imagining which girl is hotter, the cracks on the monitor overlap the words and his imagination.
  • This is the first email to delete something by accident.
  • The YouTube description for this email is "Strong Bad receives an email from two sisters asking if he has a girlfriend."


  • Strong Bad says that he "hate[s] this computer," which is contrary to his statement in gimmicks that he "liked that computer".
  • Strong Bad does not comment on the sentence "My sister and me think you are so cool." Grammatically speaking, it should be "My sister and I think you are so cool."
    • He also does not comment on "There is two of us", which should read, "There are two of us."

Fixed Glitches

  • The green lines on the Tandy used to show through Strong Bad's head. This has been fixed.

Fast Forward

  • In personal favorites, the Grape-Nuts Robot says, "Come back, Ali. Come back, Ali's sister."
  • In do over, Strong Bad imagines how he would correct the "stnank" he commits in this email. He also names Ali's sister "Ali Jr."

DVD Version

  • In the DVD version, the Ali/Ali's sister Easter egg is implemented differently. If "Angle" is pressed when Strong Bad thinks of each girl, the image changes, similar to how clicking on them changed them in the original email.
  • The DVD version features hidden creators' commentary. To access it, switch the DVD player's audio language selection while watching. This commentary is only available on the Sbemails' 50 Greatest Hits DVD.

Commentary Transcript

(Commentary by: Strong Bad, Mike Chapman)

STRONG BAD: Oh, I can hardly watch this one, Mike!

MIKE: {recognizing Matt is doing a character} Ohhh, Strong Bad.

STRONG BAD: It's too painful!

MIKE: Because your computer screen is cracked? Does that... hurt you, or...?

STRONG BAD: {overlapping} No, because this was my big chance! One time—I mean, one of the many thousands of times—

MIKE: {underneath} Ohh.

STRONG BAD: —I could have got with some ladies.


STRONG BAD: {choking up} Yeah. You know, like Jean Claude Van Damme?

MIKE: {chuckling} What?

STRONG BAD: {dejectedly} There's two of them.

MIKE: {laughs} Is that from... is the actual movie called Double Team?

STRONG BAD: Uh... I dunno. There was that one he was—

MIKE: {overlapping} It was Dennis Rodman?

STRONG BAD: —yeah, no, that was called Double Impact.

MIKE: Oh, {laughing} Double Impact.

STRONG BAD: Oh wait, no! Maybe that was called Double Team, {Mike laughs} and Double Impact was when there was two Van Dammes.

MIKE: You've got—not only can you type pretty well with boxing gloves on, you can type {begins laughing} pretty well with your forehead.

STRONG BAD: {overlapping} Oh yeah. That blue diamond... {Mike continues laughing} can do... all kinds of things. Blue Diamond Phillips... we call 'im.

MIKE: So, uh, I recognize these—these ladies.

STRONG BAD: No, they're—new graphics.

MIKE: {laughing} Really?

STRONG BAD: Specially... made... {the "You have 1 new e-mail" message comes up} Oh, there they come! I—{Mike chuckles} w—aaagh! I always forget!

MIKE: Does this always fake you out?

STRONG BAD: {overlapping} Sometimes I remember that I did get with them, and we had a lot of hot times... {Mike stifles laughter} on the city, you know...

MIKE: So, like, sometimes when somebody watches a replay in a sporting event, and they think it happened again, it's like, "Whoa! He hit another home run!"

STRONG BAD: Yeah, exactly. {Mike chuckles} Yeah. And I'm always confused, they don't... do the score right on baseball, at all. {Mike stifles laughter} They always—it's like, "well, that's another point," {Mike continues laughing} but they don't count it. It was broadcast...

{both pause until the onscreen Strong Bad begins muttering}

STRONG BAD: Grumble dumble. {Mike chuckles}
