[edit] Transcript

STRONG BAD: {singing, types "run Strongbad's__email"} I check, you check, we all check for e... mail check... an email...

{Strong Bad pronounces "CA" as "Cah". He then gets up.}

{Cut to Strong Sad's room. Strong Sad is working on a desk with a card, scissors and "SCHOOL PASTE." There are paper shards lying around.}

STRONG BAD: {sticks hands and head through door} Hey, stupid! You know some guy named Anthony from South Gate?

STRONG SAD: Oh yeah. I was just making him this card—

{He picks up the card. Its front is white and has "TO: ANTHONY" written on it with a picture of Strong Sad.}

STRONG SAD: —and gonna send him a hundred dolla—

STRONG BAD: Yeah, well he says you're dumb and a crappy guy. {leaves}

STRONG SAD: {disappointed} Ohh... {starts to rip card in half}

{Cut back to the Tandy 400.}

STRONG BAD: {sits back down, clears screen and starts typing} Look Anthony, as much as I like insulting my stupid kid brother, I'm not your freaking message service, alright? Next time, you email him yourself. {stops typing} His email address is: {typing} depressio@homestarrunner.com {stops typing} Okay, so until next time, {singing} "Everybody email that guy!" "What guy?" "ME!" "Everybody email that guy!"

{The Paper comes down.}

[edit] Easter Eggs

  • For a while, emailing depressio@homestarrunner.com would result in this response:
Hello there,
I hope your email wasn't full of awful, hurtful remarks like all the rest but I'll never know. I
stopped reading emails a long time ago and wish my brother would stop giving out my address. Before you
start making fun of me again, I'd like to share something with you.

I hope this puts us on the same page of this dusty, many volumed set of
ever-changing encyclopedias we call Life.

-Strong Sad

Then it changed to:

Strong Sad is no longer accepting emails because you people kept signing me up for "natural male enhancers." That, and the death threats weren't very cool either.

Leemee 'lone!

This email account is now deleted so emailing will only get a response from a Mailer-Daemon.

The only place where the Secrets That I Keep link can be found on the official site is Strong Sad's Lament.

[edit] Fun Facts

[edit] Trivia

  • This is the first time that Strong Bad pronounces a state's abbreviation as if it was just a word.
  • This is the first time Strong Sad is referred to as Strong Bad's little brother.
  • This is Strong Sad's first appearance in a Strong Bad Email.
  • This is the first time Strong Bad makes noise with his computer chair. The sound, however, is more of a "click-clack" noise instead of The Geddup Noise.
  • This is the first email ever made with an Easter egg.

[edit] Remarks

  • It is a physical impossibility to tear paper as Strong Sad did with the card to Anthony with one side remaining upright.
  • The page title reads "Tandy 500" rather than 400.

[edit] Real-World References

  • The design of the paste container is similar to the one manufactured by Elmer's Products, Inc.
  • Strong Bad's intro song is most likely a reference to the children's rhyme, "I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!"

[edit] Fast Forward

[edit] DVD Version

  • Instead of the variation, the real Geddup Noise plays when Strong Bad gets up.
  • If you click on the hidden Strong Bad icon in the bottom left-hand corner of the Tandy 400's screen at the end of the email, it takes you to Strong Sad's shoebox full of childhood memories.
    • This time, instead of being able to select which items you want to look at, it goes through each in turn. In addition, the card Strong Bad gave Strong Sad is read out loud by a young Strong Bad.
  • The DVD version features hidden creators' commentary. To access it, switch your DVD player's audio language selection while watching.

[edit] Commentary Transcript

(Commentary by: Mike Chapman, Matt Chapman)

MIKE: Back in the days when you could see his mouth in the reflection.

MATT: Yeah, what a dumb idea that was. Though I don't know, sometimes I think doing his mouth was less work—

MIKE: Well, if you don't move his head.

MATT: Don't move his head, yeah.

MIKE: Yeah. Well, when we used to barely move his head, it was fine, but now his head's constantly waggin' around.

MATT: That's my fault. So...

{laughter}

MATT: Look at his head! Strong Bad's head, man—

MIKE: Everyone's looking a little rough right here!

{laughter}

MATT: I don't know... Strong Sad's...

{laughter}

MIKE: That's a good sound effect.

MATT: Um... So what else? Depressio!

MIKE: There was the Some Kind of Wonderful— oh yes, Depressio. It used to be, if you emailed that email, it sent you a return email with the first Easter egg.

MATT: Hurry up and finish!

MIKE: {quickly} That was the first Easter egg ever!

MATT: {quickly speaking gibberish}
