[edit] Transcript

STRONG BAD: Umm... I don't know... I'm gonna check my email.

{Strong Bad reads in a loud monotone to reflect that the email was written entirely in capital letters.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} Number A, you don't have to shout. Do you know how many Internet etiquette laws you're breaking by typing in all caps like that? Well, you're breaking one: Don't type in all caps. Anyway, sure Daniel, I'll tell her. Put her on.

{Strong Bad clears the screen.}

STRONG BAD: Dear Daniel's girlfriend, maybe I should tell you that Daniel is cool. And that I am taken. Yeah... Yeah... Taken by a whole buncha girls that are way hotter than you, baby. So sorry sweetie, tootsie-pie, sugarbob, funky bunch. Anyways, they're all right here. Uh... They're climbing all over me. Um, say hello, ladies.

{Strong Bad clears the screen again, then types different messages from different "ladies" on the screen.}

STRONG BAD: {typing} So as you can see, they're all really nice, and hot and very web savvy. So you don't have a chance with me, sugarbob. You might as well just stick with Daniel over here. I can't see you doing any better. Okay, put Daniel back on. Okay, Daniel, it's all taken care of. Though I'd probably buy her some stuff and start working out just in case. I am quite a catch. {stops typing} Okay, everybody. Bye.

{Strong Bad gets up and leaves. The Paper comes down.}

  • The messages from the "ladies" make sounds from Apple's Mac OS X when they appear (Mac OS X is an operating system for Macintosh computers). Some of them could be submarine, glass, temple, and purr.
