[edit] Trivia

  • This is the debut of The Cheat's computer, Tangerine Dreams.
  • This is the first mention of the food court.
  • The YouTube description for this email is "Strong Bad makes fun of grammar and stuff."

[edit] Remarks

  • "I she be" is possibly a typo of "I should be" or "I shall be".

  • There is a space between each letter and three spaces between each word in "G E T   I N   L I N E   S I S T E R ! ! !" when Strong Bad types it. There is also a space before every question mark and exclamation mark in the second paragraph.
  • In the previous email, Strong Bad forwarded an email to Homestar Runner by simply typing "forward message".
  • At the top of the IM window, it says "instant messenge". "Messenge" is not a word, though it may be a play on, or a misspelling of, the word "messenger".
  • The IM conversation between The Cheat and gr8lookinggrrl contains several instances of Internet Slang.
  • There is dispute on Strong Mad's height. This email says 6 feet, while the facts says he's 88 inches (7'4") tall. The secret Strong Mad sticker page indicates that he is 8'3" and 900 lbs.
  • The Cheat's last two IM posts have a space between his username and what he had typed, though none of the other messages do.
