View Full Version : Favourite/funniest EMI moment

11-23-2000, 05:17 PM
Ah, finished it http://www.escapemi.com/forums/biggrin.gif
Bit short, but I enjoyed every minute of it nonetheless. Great puzzles, nice graphics, and the humour was a lot sharper and more consistent than CMI, in my opinion.

Just wondering what everyones favourite moments were? Personally, there were a lot of scenes that made me smile and chuckle, like the Pirate Rehabilitation School, and the lawyers ("You can't handle the truth..."), but one of the few moments to actually make me laugh out loud was Murray (who I loved in CMI too) showing Guybrush how he can be a bouncer: "Talk to the hand!" http://www.escapemi.com/forums/biggrin.gif

Any other cl***ic moments?

11-23-2000, 06:33 PM
the moments i laughed hardest at were when guybrush asks the dainty lady figure if she is familiar and she says "u kight have seen me in your nightmares. IM THE KING OF THE WORLD" that was helarious!! then when u are talking to herman and u keep asking to get off the island, finally guybrush will say "i want off this F'n island!" that was great!! finally, guybrush being the "anti-lechuck" in a religion all about lechuck was just funny.

Funniest moment has to be Carla in the Micro-Groggery.

"Hey Barkeeper, another grog, you biserable mastard!" http://www.escapemi.com/forums/biggrin.gif

Also the clerk in Starbuccaneers. Haven't I heard him in The Simpsons?!

One of my favourite moments was when you looked at the monkeys in the LUA Bar.
I so didn't know that Lucasarts liked the Beastie Boys =)


Rage. What better time than now?

11-27-2000, 02:06 AM
"No! My grog!"

"This is the door to our bedroom...awwwww yeeeaahhh"

"Alllrriigghhtt! Iron Maiden! I have no Idea why I just said that"

"Aren't you the guy who bites the heads off of bats?" (or something like that refering to Ozzy Osbourne)

I loved throwing stuff at herman trying to make hum remember too! muahahahah

Isn't it amazing how such a slow moving and seemingly heavy giant robot monkey can easily climb on those towers can leap so far?

Personally, I like it when Guybrush puts on his Barry White voice talking to/about women.

"It's the door to our bedroom...awwww, yeah."

"Why, hello, Britney."
"Hi! Why do you sound like a sick kraken?"

"Baby, your outfit is making me hungry."

"What's your first name, Miss Rivers?"

It was also funny when he looks at the fish hooks in the bait shop and if you say to pick them up, he says "No thanks, I try to keep the number of large, pointy things in my pants to an absolute minimum." And if you try to pick up the hand table..."There are only a few hands I want in my pants, and this isn't one of them."

And of course, when you use the fake hand in the stick shop - "I'm using the hand." "Is that what they call it these days?"

Then there's how the shopkeepers get all suspicious when you look at your inventory -

"Uh, sir, I'm not sure what you're doing but I'm sure it's against company policy."

"What are you doing?"
"Uh, just looking at my stuff!"
"Is that what they call it these days? Well...hurry up...wouldn't want any women to see that."

Ahrgh, I wrote a frickin' essay...but there's too many funny things in the MI games to list. http://www.escapemi.com/forums/biggrin.gif

Oh yeah and using heck instead of hell made me laugh everytime http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif

Has anyone tried looking in their inventory while in the Governor's Mansion with Elaine?

"How do I get off this !@&*#'n island?"

...and the fact that the Banana Picker only works on one particular part of the giant monkey head.

LUA Bar... Whats a LUA?

11-28-2000, 09:53 PM
try drinking the grog

"GUYBRUSH what have i told u about grog?!!?"
*in a pitifuly whipped voice*
"no grog until i finish my adventure...."

thats some funny stuff

`..*NewFoundGloryBoy* ..`

I have a theory about ants. I figure that if I step on every ant I see, then eventually by natural selection the ants will evolve to avoid me. It may take a few million years, but I'm patient.

I have a similar theory about voting against the presidential candidates who equally annoy me, but they evolve even more slowly.

11-28-2000, 11:03 PM
when charles l. charles leaves the screen saying "i have hands to kiss and babies to shake"

Also when brittney is pronoucing kangaroo. Kanga-rooooo

the way that elaine and guybrush use cheesy pirate related baby-talk names in conversation, "plunder bunny" thats quality.

Hey, it's timmy the monkey....how did he get here?

11-30-2000, 04:35 AM
One of the cooler things you can do is take the LeChuck and Guybrush puppets over to Jumbalaya Island and use them on different people. Like on Murray... "I'm not going to talk to you while you do that"

But the funniest line has to be "Wow. Look at all those Candy Bars"

11-30-2000, 06:26 PM
The conversation with Carla and Otis was extremely funny to me.
"Stop using your picking up wenches voice. It's creepy."

Also, the things you can examine in the International House of Mojo...pure hilarity.
"Ah, the middle finger. The most communicative of fingers."
"Woah, it's a cutting-edge 4dfX Voodoo mask 6!"

"Carla, drinking is not the answer!"
"Well, that depends on the question doesn't it?"

11-30-2000, 06:39 PM
"Alllrriigghhtt! Iron Maiden! I have no Idea why I just said that"

that is 1 of the best!

in the governers mansion, why can't Guybrush and Elaine go in the bedroom http://www.escapemi.com/forums/smile.gif

"You will watch me STROLL throught the gates of hell!"
"Alright, ROLL, ROLL through the gates of hell!"

11-30-2000, 10:27 PM
I also loved spinning Murray...

"So that's your game, eh? Spin the helpless skull attached to a stool, huh?"
"If you don't stop that, I'm going to put an EVIL curse on you!"
"Okay, here I go, I'm putting a curse on you!"
"All right, I've cursed you. You're going to have such a rash!"

"Show me a man who's gentle and kind, and I'll show you a loser."

- I Liked the Smamp/Paradox scene
- The scenes with Murray. (Murray RULEZ!!)
- Meathook doing the thing with his chest (It looks back to SOMI)
- When you give the flower to Otis. Ha, Freakin' HA! (also from SOMI)
- The first time I saw Dave with his two eyepatches.

My favorite part of the game was when Guybrush first talks to the priest in the church of LeChuck. The priest reacts funny when Guybrush tells him that he is Guybrush, the husband of Elaine, and the preist doesn't believe him.

12-01-2000, 05:46 PM
The funniest moment eh... ?
When Guybrush tries to convince Otto and Carlo to go with him to Lucre Island.

I have 2 questions: (PLEASE ANSWER) when gu says "I want off this F'n island!" does he really ****? And how do you get the abomination of nature?

What is this abomination?
Murray was the funniest part of the game.

Murray: I shall stride through the gates of hell grasping your head!

Guybrush: Stride?

Murray: A...alright, ROLL! ROLL through the gates of hell! Must you question everything?

I'm dead serious, everyone always says, 'I still have the abomination of natur' or 'What are you supposed to do with the abomination of nature?' pleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa* **sssssssssssssssssssssssssssseeeee tell me!

The Abomination of Nature doesn't do anything. It's just there for your amusement.

When Guybrush says, "How am I supposed to get off this #&$*@'n island?", that's exactly what he says, except you can't pronounce "#&$*@" and there's a beeping sound which covers it up.

"Show me a man who's gentle and kind, and I'll show you a loser."

****in stupid waste-of-time abomination of nature.

12-03-2000, 11:48 AM
The funniest moment was...

GT - How does Pegnose Pete smell without a nose (or something similliar)

Bait shoppe clerk- Awfull!

I remmember that one from a Monty Phyton sketch.

My all-time favorite for EMI is still the Figurehead Lady, though...

Guybrush: You look kind of familiar...
Figurehead: Perhaps you've seen me in your nightmares.
Guybrush: Uh... I don't think so.
Figurehead: Yes, you have... Watch this:

if you open your inventory in the law office they say

"we should drop this case. he's got nothing to pay us with."


:eek: "I will stride to the gates of hell-"
"...ROLL to the gates of hell..."
[b]Murray, Guybrush Threepwood[\b] :eek:

The model number of Pegnose Petes prosthetic nose is TK-421. This is the serial number to the Storm Trooper guarding the Falcon on the Death Star. Quote from film - "TK-421 why aren't you at your post" Another little Star Wars joke.

Sorry to be pedantic but:
"Iron Maiden! Excellent!! I have no idea why I just said that."

All the deep, manly voice ones are brilliant, one of the best:
"Baby, you can park my ships anytime of the week."

"That pig-shaped bush frightens and confuses me."

"That's the door to our bedroom...awwww yeeeahh."

"What the hell's a 'Lua'?"

And something like...
Guybrush: "Why do you need money?"
Murray: "Why, to finance my dastardly scheme to TAKE OVER THE WORLD! MUAHAHAHAHA!!"

"What kind of a plot for world domination involves rollercoasters and cotton candy?"

"Where was the kaboom? There was supposed to be a caribbean-shattering kaboom!!"

"I am Ozzie Mandrill! Look on my works, ye mighty pirates, and despair!"

Some of the insults:

"look behind you!"
"yeah,yeah, a three headed monkey..."

"Your mother was a hampster"
"your father smelt of elderberries"
(a bit of monty python)

"Weell, a didgeridoo to you too!"

"So, how di you get up there?"
"Through sheer force of will."
"Oh, alright, it was some of those damn voodoo kids. They found me washed up on the beach and stuck me up here, all the time thinking they were SOOO funny..."

I just like saying to Mr Cheese:

'You're a big ****ie head!'


I also liked the outrageously dirty grouchy judge, who, even after you ask him for a 'fair contest', still gives you 10 after messing up completely, and still gives Marco 10 after doing his 'seagull spectacular'

12-08-2000, 08:49 PM
I like when Guybrush looks at his ship on Lucre Island and says, "Rats, it's still pink!"

"You may have seen me in your nightmares. I'm THE KING OF THE WORLD!!!"
"Yipe."--Figurehead &

12-08-2000, 10:00 PM
"I am Ozzie Mandrill! Look on my works, ye mighty pirates, and despair!"

Most of you probably know this (but I'm still reiterating it for those who don't), but this line is paraphrased from PB Shelly's poem Ozymandias (Ozzie Mandrill.... Ozy Mandias.... geddit?), more specifically from the following:

'My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!'

See the rest here (http://www.globalnet.co.uk/~wills/poetry/ozymandias.html)

The funniest thing I remember from EMI is Ignatius Cheese. I broke out histerical, cuz the nickname for people named Ignatius is Nacho(well atleast in Spanish). Nacho Cheese....too funny. Definitely a very inside joke.
