"Am I... in Heaven?"

Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People has many responses when you talk to various characters and interact with various objects. These are the responses from Videlectrix Mainframe in 8-Bit Is Enough.

On these pages, A → B (right arrow) means that the response happens when object A is used on thing B, or in the case of talking to other characters, the indicated sequence of chat topic icons are chosen.


A short horizontal line between two or more responses, such as the one above, means only one of the responses is heard at a time, and that the action results in a different response each time it occurs.

[edit] Videlectrix Mainframe

[edit] On arrival

{First time only}
{The usual Videlectrix start-up sequence can be seen on screen, with Strong Bad replacing the Videlectrix Mascot in doing the routine of falling and looking up at the logo.}
STRONG BAD: I'm up! Nobody saw that! It's cool!
{The hub then materializes.}
STRONG BAD: {surprised} Whoa... what IS this place? It's like... every cool videogame ever made, all in one place! Am I... in Heaven?
HOMESTAR: {quickly materializes near Strong Bad} Hey, Strong Bad!
STRONG BAD: {faces Homestar} No, clearly NOT Heaven.
HOMESTAR: Word on the street is you're trying to take down this Trogdor character.
STRONG BAD: {irritated} That's right, Homestar. You were there when I said it out loud twice.
HOMESTAR: Shhh! Never know who might be listening! I hear there's a regular Trogdor-killing expert inside Peasantry. {shifts near the Peasant's Quest portal} Fella by the name of Rather Dashing. Tell him the H-Star Man sent you. {vanishes}

[edit] Gel-Arshie's Pro Fruitboarder

STRONG BAD: "Gel-Arshie's Pro Fruitboarder"? That's the game The Cheat was wanting to play in my bedroom! I wonder if it's any less lame when you see it on the inside.
{He does the sprite transformations and goes through the portal}

{After Gel-Arshie joins the party}
STRONG BAD: Looks like my score was so high it broke the game!

[edit] Code Wheel

[edit] Gel-Arshie → Code Wheel

{First time only}
{Strong Bad pulls out Gel-Arshie, who grows to normal size and floats above Strong Bad}
GEL-ARSHIE: Step aside, puddin' snacks!
{He zooms up close to the camera}
GEL-ARSHIE: I'm on the loose and I'm bursting with red fruit-like flavor!
{He strains and then grunts, giving the entire area a reddish hue}

{Strong Bad withdraws Gel-Arshie in silence.}

[edit] Gel-Arshie → Cancel

STRONG BAD: That's enough, freakshow.
GEL-ARSHIE: {hysterical} You can't control me! I'll be back! I'll be baaaaack... {vanishes}

[edit] Outer Ring

[edit] Ben Franklin
STRONG BAD: It's Ben Franklin's ghost, from "Spirits of '76".
[edit] Jhonka
STRONG BAD: That's the Jhonka from Peasant's Quest. He's only in the game for like five minutes; how did he get on the wheel?
[edit] John Hancock
STRONG BAD: That's the ghost of John Hancock.
[edit] Kid Speedy
STRONG BAD: Looks like Kid Speedy.
[edit] Paul Revere
STRONG BAD: That's the ghost of Paul Revere!
[edit] Samuel Adams
STRONG BAD: That's the spooky ghost of... {voice quivers} ...Samuel Adams... {speaks normally} ...from "Spirits of '76".
[edit] Thy Dungeonman
STRONG BAD: {in awe} Wow, Thy Dungeonman looks a lot beefier here than he does in text.
[edit] Trogdor
STRONG BAD: I think I recognise this character. "Trag-dar", maybe?
[edit] Colonial Ghost
Before being given an item at the House of Strong
STRONG BAD: It's one of those Colonial Ghosts from Spirits of '76. Can't tell which one, though.

STRONG BAD: All those Spirits of '76 ghosts look the same until you meet them in person.

[edit] Middle Ring

[edit] Hot Dog
STRONG BAD: That, of course, is an all natural 100% beef frank.
[edit] Key
STRONG BAD: Looks like one of those old-timey keys nobody uses anymore.
[edit] Lantern
STRONG BAD: It's a box... with a line in it... maybe a lantern?
[edit] Pile of Riches
STRONG BAD: A big pile of pixelated riches.
[edit] Quill
STRONG BAD: One of them old feather pens.
[edit] Teabag
STRONG BAD: {puzzled} I don't remember any Videlectrix game with teabags.
[edit] Thatched Roof Cottage
STRONG BAD: A thatched-roof cottage in its rare, un-burninated state.
[edit] Yon Trinket
STRONG BAD: "YON TRINKET". Text: for when drawing six pixels takes too much time.

[edit] Inner Ring

[edit] Any answer
Before Gel-Arshie turns the area red
STRONG BAD: {frustrated} Hey, no fair! This so-called code wheel is broken! Nobody can read that!
HOMESTAR: {pops up} Ooh, tough break, Strong Bad. I don't think they make those InvisiGlasses anymore.
STRONG BAD: {disappointed} Oh, man! Where am I gonna find something red and see-through?
HOMESTAR: If you need something red and see-through, I have just the thing... {crouches down}
STRONG BAD: Homestar, if you're about to show me a skimpy negligee, STOP RIGHT NOW.
HOMESTAR: {pokes his head up, disappointed} Oh. Never mind. {vanishes}

STRONG BAD: I can't read it without those red see-through glasses they used to ship with the game.

Strong Bad reads all the flavors as written, save for:
[edit] Paul Revere → Lantern
STRONG BAD: None. Paul Revere was lactose intolerant.
[edit] Trogdor → Cottage
{First time only}
STRONG BAD: Yes! This has GOT to get me into the Trogdor game! {Finds a Trogdor shirt} A Trogdor t-shirt consolation prize? All right, I give up. Cool shirt, though.

[edit] Peasant's Quest

{First time only}
STRONG BAD: {excited} "Peasant's Quest"? You mean I get to go inside the best-selling video computer TV game of all time?
COPY PROTECTOR: Beyond this door, a world of short-panted adventure awaits! Are you ready to experience the realm of Peasantry first hand?
STRONG BAD: {still excited} Ready?!? I've only been waiting for this for like my entire life!
COPY PROTECTOR: Then let's do this. But first: thou must answer mine riddle! What is PAUL REVERE's favorite ICE CREAM FLAVOR?
STRONG BAD: {annoyed} What?!? What kind of question is that? Who are you, anyway?
COPY PROTECTOR: I am the Copy Protector! {An image of a code wheel shows up in place of the Peasant's Quest title screen.} Use the code wheel and InvisiGlasses™ to aid you on your quest. {The wheel materialises underneath Strong Bad's feet.} The answer is on page 38 of your manual.

COPY PROTECTOR: Dost thou have yon answer for mine riddle? What is Paul Revere's favorite ice cream flavor?

{After solving the riddle}
STRONG BAD: Load "Pquest" comma 8 comma 1. {goes inside}

[edit] Copy Protector → Peasant's Quest Manual

STRONG BAD: Manual? This game is like a billion years old. I don't have the manual!
COPY PROTECTOR: Then thou art screwed.
HOMESTAR: {pops up} You don't need a manual, Strong Bad! Isn't that Spirits of 76 game back at your house? All you gots to do is figure out what Paul Revere's ghost looks like. Why don't you just go see him in person? {vanishes}

[edit] Copy Protector → Code Wheel

STRONG BAD: What am I supposed to do with that giant wheel thing?
COPY PROTECTOR: 'Tis all very simple. Rotate the wheel to match up the Videlectrix character with the item he holds in the game, like it's shown in page 38 of your manual! Then use the included InvisiGlasses to read the answer to mine riddle.

[edit] Copy Protector → InvisiGlasses

STRONG BAD: How am I supposed to get some InvisiGlasses™? They haven't made those since "Thy Dungeonman 0: No Text Edition".
COPY PROTECTOR: Then thou art well and truly doomed. The secret art of looking at things through red translucent cellophane has been lost to the mists of time.

[edit] Copy Protector → Ice Cream

STRONG BAD: I've got the answer to that riddle.
COPY PROTECTOR: Layeth it on me.
[edit] Copy Protector → Ice Cream → Vanilla
STRONG BAD: {confused} Um... vanilla?
{Skip to the Copy Protector's response in the section below.}
[edit] Copy Protector → Ice Cream → Any flavor
{First time only}
{Strong Bad states the answer according to the selected ice cream's color and appearance. Note that once a flavor is found on the Code Wheel, the default vanilla flavor isn't an option.}
COPY PROTECTOR: Nice try, hot shot. No dice. {The projector image changes back to the Peasant's Quest title screen.}

{Second time only}
{Strong Bad states the answer according to the selected ice cream's color and appearance.}
COPY PROTECTOR: That is incorrect. {The projector image changes back to the Peasant's Quest title screen.}

{Strong Bad states the answer according to the selected ice cream's color and appearance.}
COPY PROTECTOR: Try again. {The projector image changes back to the Peasant's Quest title screen.}
[edit] Copy Protector → Ice Cream → No Ice Cream
STRONG BAD: None. Paul Revere was lactose intolerant.
COPY PROTECTOR: That is correct!
{The Code Wheel sign disappears and is replaced by the Peasant's Quest title again}
COPY PROTECTOR: Welcome to the realm of Peasantry!
{Strong Bad does the sprite transformations and goes through the portal}

[edit] Space Circus Catastrophe

STRONG BAD: Space Circus Catastrophe? No way am I going in there. Those evil space clowns are BAD NEWS, man. I love those performing bears though!
{Oddly enough, a performing bear jumps out of the portal.}
STRONG BAD: No! Down boy, down!
{The bear vanishes.}
ON-SCREEN TEXT: PERFORMING BEAR has joined your party!
STRONG BAD: Awww, he's already gotten attached. Now I gotta keep him.

STRONG BAD: Space Circus Catastrophe? No way am I going in there. Those evil space clowns are BAD NEWS, man.

[edit] Stinkoman 20X6

STRONG BAD: Stinkoman 20X6. Yes, I believe I AM asking for a challenge...
{Strong Bad jumps towards the panel, but he rebounds from it. The panel then flashes with the error message "REGION LOCKED".}
STRONG BAD: {disappointed} Region locked? Awww, man. What kind of crappy alternate reality can't play imported videogames?

{The panel continues to flash with the "REGION LOCKED" message.}
STRONG BAD: Still region locked. A world of spiky blue-haired wonder remains tantalizingly out of my grasp.

{once region locking is removed}
STRONG BAD: Now I wanna be the guy too! {Strong Bad does the sprite changes and enters the game.}

[edit] Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People

STRONG BAD: "Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People"? I hope that's one of those games with like guns, and swords, and setting things on fire! And not one of those boring "use pie on cat" type jobs.
{He does the sprite transformations and goes through the portal}

[edit] Trogdor!

{The Trogdor! panel bleeps with the error message "FAIL: CHARACTER NOT FOUND".}
STRONG BAD: Character not found? I guess the Trogdor! game would be pretty lame without the Trogdor.

{In extended play}
{Strong Bad does the pixel transformation and goes inside. He gets taken to Trogdor's 3D-Ungeon.}
ON-SCREEN TEXT: WELCOME TO TROGDOR'S 3D-UNGEON!!!
STRONG BAD: All right! It's Trogdor, bigger and badder than ever!
{The game starts.}

[edit] Videlectrix Halfathlon

STRONG BAD: The Videlectrix Halfathlon. Featuring the finest top-tier Soviet athletes that Videlectrix could afford to license. Sounds half-athed, all right.
{He does the sprite transformations and goes through the portal}
