Post subject:  The Cheat's cheat talk translated?

Here's something I think might be interesting: a thread where you can try to interpret what The Cheat is saying when his cheat-talk is translated into English. Part of this actually came from the CHEAT TALK email, in which an Easter egg shows a few sample bits of dialog of The Cheat noises translated into English. Here are a few samples here, each in their respective contexts:

In "A Jumping Jack Contest":
The Cheat: (The Cheat noises) Hey, Homestar, would you like 147 glasses of melonade?
Homestar Runner: A glass of melonade for me? Mmmm... Okay.

---

In "Pumpkin Carve-nival":
Homestar Runner: (after the King of Town describes his pumpkin) Whaddaya think, The Cheat?
The Cheat: (The Cheat noises) The King of Town is so lame.
Homestar Runner: I concur. Worst place! Ding!
The King of Town: Sorry, King, but our princess is in another castle...

---

In "SUPERHERO NAME":
Strong Bad: Of course you're still my sidekick!
The Cheat: (The Cheat noises) What, don't you like this costume?
Strong Bad: Yeah, that cape looks great on you. Look, I was speaking hypothetically.

---

In "SB_EMAIL 22":
Announcer: Strong Bad, how do you respond to claims that your comment brought the entire royal family to tears?
The Cheat: (The Cheat noises to Strong Bad) Check it out, this is going to be great. Just say "Screw all y'all."
Strong Bad: (clears his throat) Screw all y'all.
Announcer: Cor blimey!

And on two other occasions, The Cheat's noises have been subtitled, on his character video and in the LOCAL NEWS email. Anyway, that's the context of this, The Cheat's noises being translated. What are some of your interpretations of other The Cheat noises?

From "army":

Strong Bad: The Cheat, I need you to find out...
The Cheat: (Cheat noises) I told you to use my commando name!
Strong Bad: Oh, don't make me call you that. It's not a good commando name!
The Cheat: (Cheat noises) Just say it!
Strong Bad: Ugh, alright... Firebert, I need you to find out what the crap Homestar is up to at The Stick in oh-fifteen minutes.
The Cheat: (Cheat noises) Yes, sir!

In "ALTERNATE UNIVERSE":
Strong Bad: A hundred million dollars is exactly how much The Cheat spent on our alternate universe portal. Isn't that right, The Cheat?
The Cheat: (The Cheat noises) Well, actually, I only spent fourteen bucks.
Strong Bad: What? This thing only cost us fourteen bucks?
The Cheat: (The Cheat noises) That's right.
Strong Bad: Well... that's like a hundred million dollars in... dog years, right?
The Cheat: (The Cheat noises) Yeah, I guess you could say that.
Strong Bad: All right! Mash go on that blender!

In "Marzipan's Answering Machine Version 15.2":

The Cheat: (The Cheat noises over the phone) Hey, Marzipan, you're a facewich!
Strong Bad: (over the phone) Uh, he says you're a face. A facewich. Like, a face witch, like rides a broomstick? Or a facewich, like between two pieces of bread?
The Cheat: (The Cheat noises) You're a facewich, Marzipan! Why don't you blow up your nose?
Strong Bad: You're a facewich and blow up your house.
The Cheat: (frustrated The Cheat noises) Not "house", Strong Bad, "nose"!
Strong Bad: Your nose! Blow up your nose.
The Cheat: (The Cheat noises) Blow up your nose with Epsom salt!
Strong Bad: Epsom salt? The Cheat, are you sure that's the direction you wanna go with this prank call?
The Cheat: (The Cheat noises, gnawing)
Strong Bad: And now you're just gnawing on the phone. Gimme that! (gnawing stops) I'll show you how it's done. (quickly) Marzipan, this is Dean Prankcaller from the You're Gross Institute calling to ask you to come speak at our graduation ceremony. If you're interested, please walk into the bathroom and stare at your gross face until you make yourself puke. Thank you, the end, very much. (normally) Now that's a prank call! (The Cheat makes more gnawing noises) Ugh...

In "COLORING":

Strong Bad: Laser lemon?! (through a phone) The Cheat, halt production immediately!
(The Cheat is seen using a soldering iron and an oscilloscope to build a laser with lemons on it.)
Strong Bad: Crayola beat us to the punch. Let's shift focus to... "Laser Limes". Or maybe just laser beams.
The Cheat: (looking annoyed) Okay.

pizza joint

Strong Bad: Count me in-do you take Pizz Points?
The Cheat: (Cheat noises) Uh-huh
Strong Bad: Count me in!

I know, it was pretty obvious, but might as well do it.

In "Date Nite":

(The Cheat and Marzipan walk up the stone bridge)
The Cheat: (excited The Cheat noises) Hey, you know, Marzipan, I've always wanted to see Ira Glass and Ira Flatow wrestle with each other.
Marzipan: That's so crazy! I've always wanted to see Ira Glass and Ira Flatow wrestle, too.

In Biz Cas Fri 3:

THE CHEAT: (What did you do?!)
STRONG BAD: I didn't do anything! I just turned it on, tried to check my email, and then it started smokin' and shakin' like it was Friday night!
THE CHEAT: (Did you back up your files before it crashed?)
STRONG BAD: Back up my files?! Are you kidding? Is that a real thing you have to do? I always thought that that was just like... you know, a figure of speech.
THE CHEAT: (A "figure of speech"?!)
STRONG BAD: I dunno, like "Wake up and smell the coffee," or "See ya later, alligator!"
THE CHEAT: (Well, you're on your own.)

In "ANIMAL":

Strong Bad: Okay, okay, okay. I gotta look good for the Lappy. My made-up animal would be called... Sterrance. (Sterrance appears) Hey, I did it! Look at Sterrance! Aw, Sterrance. I want one. Sterrance is way cuter than that stupid ugly old washed-up The Cheat I used to have.
The Cheat: (The Cheat noises) What did you call me?!
Strong Bad: Oh, Captain Past His Prime himself.
The Cheat: (The Cheat noises) I heard everything you said about me!
Strong Bad: Yeah, I know you heard me. And I stand by it.
The Cheat: (The Cheat noises) Hmph! (walks off)
Strong Bad: Don't worry about him, Lappy. That's just The Cheat. He uses new computers.
