Funny: Strong Bad's Cool Game for Attractive People
The Tutorial
  • Strong Bad is demonstrating the "sucking-up", or "angel me", dialogue setting, by trying to give Bubs a compliment.
    Strong Bad: Cheer up Bubs! At least you're not on fire!
    Bubs: That's the best compliment you could come up with?

Homestar Ruiner
  • Strong Bad's various attempts to get into Strong Sad's room (and Strong Sad's responses), from offering Strong Sad's favorite "nasty ethnic food" ("I don't believe in favoring one food over another.") to acting like an angry step-mother ("You're not even my real mom!")
  • Strong Bad makes a prank call to Coach Z using Homestar's cell phone and frames him for putting itching powder on the coach's jock straps for the last three years. Strong Bad then hangs up and says, "Well, that should get me off the hook. But the creepy thing is, Coach Z has never actually complained about it."
  • In Teen Girl Squad, if you use the ringtone on one girl, a rat appears and asks "Dang, is that Brainkreig? I love cheese. I mean Brainkreig." Use the cell phone on the same girl and she is stampeded by rats.
    Narrator: RATS LIKE METAL!! (Apparently)
    Girl: Does this mean I can get outta my contract? (dies)
  • The entire part where Strong Bad needs to retrieve Homestar's criminal record from the King Of Town's Castle, which is actually a stealth mission where you have to evade the Poopsmith and Strong Mad. All the possible lines when you pick a hiding place for Strong Bad and all the possible lines if you're discovered are hilarious.
    Strong Bad: Activate cloaking device! Whaowhaowhaoawhaowhao!
    Strong Bad: It's Arbor Day, Strongly Brown!
    Strong Bad: By the power of... uh... (Nausiated) brown skull...
    Strong Bad: Steath-action Strong Bad comes with everything you see here!

    Strong Mad: *As he stomps towards Strong Bad* Footstep! Footstep! Footstep!

    The Poopsmith: "!?"
    Strong Bad: Oh crunch.
    (Later)
    The Poopsmith: "You again?!"
    Strong Bad: Oh, crunchberries.

    Strong Bad: (jumping up into air vent in ceiling) Looks like I'm gonna have to jump...!
    (jumps up into vent just as Strong Mad arrives)
    Strong Mad: (to the Poopsmith) INTRUDER ALERT??
    The Poopsmith: "?"
    Strong Mad: INTRUDER ALERT?
    The Poopsmith: "???"
    Strong Bad: (from inside the ceiling vent directly above Strong Mad) It's a good thing Strong Mad doesn't have a neck, or he might be able to look up.
    • If you jump back down on the vent where Strong Mad and the Poopsmith are standing, Strong Bad delivers this:
    Strong Bad: Aw, whatsit.
  • The reason why Strong Bad's no longer allowed to any of Marizpan's parties: It involves him wearing an eyepatch, claiming to be "Lord Barglebroth", demanding "All shall kneel before my style!" and jumping off the roof of her house into a cake.
  • "IRONY!"
  • If you try putting the Total Load on Strong Mad's locker before Pom Pom's, you get this:
    Coach Z: Hey, Strong Mad!
    Strong Mad: (jumps through the roof) OH YEAAAAAAH!
    Coach Z: What have I told you about using this Total Load Total Body Energy Enhancer Powder stuff?
    Strong Mad: ONLY ON TUESDAYS!
    Coach Z: And what day is it today?
    Strong Mad: UH... HAPPY NEW YEAR!
    Coach Z: Close enough. Now get this stuff out of here, okay?
    Strong Mad: AULD LANG SYNE!

Strong Badia the Free
  • The gang has set up an effigy of the King of Town outside Strong Bad's house, consisting mainly of an old stick.
    Strong Bad: Why'd you bring that ugly, misshapen stick?
    Homestar: She organized the protest rally!
    Strong Bad: Not Marzipan! (to himself) Though that's a pretty good one. Gotta remember that.
  • After Strong Bad gets placed under house arrest, he makes a "call to arms" to his fellow citizens gathered outside his window.
    Strong Bad: Who's with me?
    Strong Mad: (shakes a fist) STRONG MAD!
    Coach Z: (raises a hand) Me!
  • You can try wheedling the Cheat into joining up with Strong Bad, which leads to Strong Bad saying "Come on!" and "The Cheat!" in an increasingly whiny, drawn-out fashion.
  • From the intro to "Cave Girl Squad":
    Cheerleader: Challah, cave-girls! Today's the big mammoth hunt, and you know what that means.
    The Ugg-ly One: More parasites for my...
    Cheerleader: It's boys, alright?! It's always boys!
    • "THE OPPOSITE OF RE-ENTRY'D!"
    • "SURVIVAL OF THE PHATTEST!"
  • This exchange, when trying to get the Homestarmy back together:
    Strong Bad: I thought we were bros!
    Homestar: Wait, I thought I thought we were bros, and you're always beating various stuffings out of me.
    • Later, after your failed attempt at reinstating the draft:
    Homestar: Well, the draft didn't work, Strong Bad. Only one thing left to do: Clone an army of mutant super-soldiers.
    Strong Bad: No, Homestar, we... (quickly taken by surprise) Wait. That was an option? How come you come up with the unbelievably cool ideas only AFTER I'm committed to this one?
  • One of the "battles" between Homestar and Coach Z in Maps & Minions:
    HOMESTAR RUNNER! VERSUS! COACH Z!
    (cut to the two in the field)
    Coach Z: (to Homestar) Fair enough, I'll go. (leaves)
    HOMESTAR RUNNER! WINS!
    • This is especially funny because it's the second battle, and after that they don't even bother with the Versus Character Splash.
  • Strong Bad's explanation for why he didn't hear about the e-mail tax.
    Marzipan: Didn't you see the warning message about the new e-mail tax?
    Strong Bad: {imitating Marzipan} No, I didn't see the warning message about the new e-mail tax. {speaking normally} All messages from the King of Town get intercepted with extreme prejudice by my idiot filter.
    Homestar: But I sent you all kinds of reminder e-mails!
    Strong Bad: Idiot filter.
    Strong Bad: Idiot— nevermind.
  • Homestar's reactions to the failed results for the Draft Wheel, including Li'l Brudder, the Bennedetto brothers, and... Homestar Runner.
  • Strong Bad's attempt at speaking Homsar's language at the Homsar Reservation. "Dah, I broke the tip off my stipend!" When you get the mystic pylon up and running and can understand Homsar's language, trying to speak the language will cause Homsar to complain "Why are you talking gibberish, Strong Bad? You sound like a two-years-old boy."
    • There's another funny moment in how we hear Strong Bad and Homsar speak normally while occasionally cutting to Strong Sad's POV where he can't understand any of the word salads exchanged between them.
  • The scenes where you trick Strong Sad into thinking he has pretendicitis.
    Strong Sad: I'm burning up! According to this thermometeur, my skin should be melting off!
  • The final line of the game after Strong Bad tricks The King of Town into reclaiming his throne and repealing the e-mail tax.
    The King of Town: I sure showed him a thing or tw—aw, crap.
  • Related to the above, the game's stinger line, spoken by the King of Town:
    The King of Town: What's a king gotta do to get some chili mac up in here?
  • After Strong Bad chops off both heads on the Taranchula standee, controlled by Strong Mad, thereby "defeating" it, an anguished Strong Mad cries, "WHY, STRONG BAD, WHY?!?"

Baddest of the Bands
  • When Strong Sad tells Strong Bad to take the broken Funmachine to Bubs, Strong Bad whines "But Bubs'll probably make me pay for it! With money!" Bubs then suddenly appears in the House of the Brothers Strong to chime in with "I also accept first-born children."
  • Strong Sad, as a security guard, gets even with Strong Bad:
    Strong Sad: I prefer to keep the peace through rational discourse... backed up by ten-thousand volts! (electrocutes Strong Bad with a taser)
  • All the instances of Strong Bad Abuse. He gets hit with Marzipan's guitar twice (once for real, and once in a flashback) and electrocuted at least three times.
  • Solving one puzzle requires Strong Bad to get Marzipan to make out an autographed poster for Coach Z. You can also ask her to make one out to several other characters, with various humorous results, including:
    • Strong Bad: "To Awesome Strong Bad: You are not awesome. Love, Marzipan."
    • Homestar Runner: Peeved that Homestar apparently can't be bothered to ask for one in person, Marzipan writes an unseen diatribe that Strong Bad describes as "written domestic abuse".
    • Homsar: "Dear Homsar: Spaghetti, dump truck, laser beams! Wheezily, Matzah Ball."
  • After you get Cool Tapes to join the Battle Royale:
    Marzipan: Here's our entry form, and tell Bubs that our entry fee will be in the mail.
    Strong Bad: Couldn't you just give me the money?
    Marzipan: Sure. I could also comb my hair with live scorpions, but that doesn't make it a good idea.
    Strong Bad: You're right, it's a great idea!
  • If you talk to the Cheat after sabotaging both Cool Tapes (the band the Cheat is in) and the Two-O-Duo (the band the Cheat watches when he gets a break), you get the following exchange:
    Strong Bad: What's the word, the Cheat?
    The Cheat: (The Cheat noises)
    Strong Bad: What's a "schadenfreude"?
  • The result of Strong Bad sabotaging the Two-O-Duo:
    Bubs: (as Coach Z advances on him as part of their dance break) Uh-oh!
    Coach Z: (punching Bubs to the rhythm of their music) Da punches, da punches!
    Bubs: No! Quit it! Ow! Knock it—! Stop!
    (everything stops with a Record Needle Scratch)
    Coach Z: (terrified about what he just did) Oh, jeez!
    Bubs: (VERY angry at Coach Z) THAT'S IT! I don't know why I thought it would be a good idea to get back together with a clumsy dumsy like you...
    Strong Bad: (quickly) That was all me!
    Bubs: ...but I'm never, ever, EVER sharin' a stage, arena, or transient men's motel lounge with you ever again! EVER!
    (Bubs leaves in a huff; the Two-O-Duo's approval drops despite Coach Z's efforts at soloing it)

Dangeresque 3: The Criminal Projective

8-Bit Is Enough
  • If you try to leave the House of the Brothers Strong before talking to Strong Sad, he'll remark "You can't take on Trogdor without calling Product Support first! You'll void your warranty, and maybe your bladder!"
  • Homestar playing the part of Strong Bad's Exposition Fairy after getting stuck in the interface.
    Homestar: Yay! You got the sword! Now you can slay the dragon!
    Strong Bad: More importantly, I'll be able to keep you from popping up and interrupting all my future scheduled make-out sessions!
    Homestar: Uh... I've got access to your online calendar in here and I don't see any scheduled make-out sessions... just pedicures and bubble baths.
    Strong Bad: Yaaahhhh... that's code for "make-out session"! Just get outta here! And quit touching my stuff!
  • When Strong Bad finds out he needs to look up an answer to the Copy Protection in the manual to get into Peasant's Quest.
    Strong Bad: Manual? This game is like a billion years old, I don't have the manual!
    Copy Protector: Then thou art screwed.
  • Marzipan's freakishly large teeth after being turned into Lady Crate Ape.
