A penchant for 'my favourite....' posts, along with a recent convo i've been having with a bud has caused me to start this thread.

What are your most memorable moments in a lucas arts game?

mine would be in monkey island 2 when you try to get guybrush to pick up the carpenters chair and he replies "no, i don't touch other people's stools"

So many moments, it's hard to pick... I guess my current favourite is in Monkey Island 2 when Guybrush goes grave robbing, and loses his pants. It's all so dramatic up until that point :)

Hmm...so many to choose from

MI: Guybrush "dies" Sierra-style by walking off the edge of a cliff
MI2: Guybrush Lights The Match in the room filled with TNT :D

are my favorites that I can recall now

I like when in Grim Fandango every time the year changes, and Manny makes the casino/boat a smash hit. I also like how Nick goes to hell on the train. My almost favorite part is how at the beginning it's those four minatures around the ashtray, and at the end they four guys are around the pond.

Indiana Jones: FOA : When he touches the statue, and it's a cat. I love that. Also, the part when Kerner and Indy fight, and Kerner falls out the window, with the statue.

Last Crusade: Screwing up when kicking the armor when you are tied up in the chairs. "Censored"

SOMI: The whole part when trying to steal the Idol of Many Hands. When Fester Shinetop turns into LeChuck.

MI2 LCR: When Guybrush sees the guard lady and thinks she's LeChuck. Also, "Lost Parents" and
Guybrush: "...and give me all my money back!"
Largo: "Ha! I already spent all of it!"
Stab Stab Stab at the voodoo doll.
And finally, when the bucket falls on Largo's head.

CMI: The large ball of cheese. "Ewwww... Porcelain." All the pirate songs. SKULL Island.

EMI: None. Hated the game basically. I guess you could say the part when he's tied up writing his journal.

Dig: "Brink, Don't make me have to hurt you..."
The part when Low goes on a tirade and wants his COLD BEER and a HOT JUKEBOX.

Full Throttle: "Play" Kick. "I fixed your door... It was sticking..."

Sam and Max: Max: "OOOO, I wanna turn that cat inside out."
Sam: "Hmmmmm" *Does it*

Day of the Tentacle: The Beauty contest being rigged. The suggestion box. The teeth. God I loved that game.


There are way to many great parts. I can't name them all. I took what I could think of quickly.

I love mannys casino in grim. Just how they both have those white suits on and how its all quiet and peaceful. I think thats awsome.

MrManager
12-10-2001, 09:28 PM
Just thought of one in EMI, where Guybrush says something like "How do I get off this $@(*ing island?!" to Herman. You sorta don't expect to here cussing in MI, so it comes like a surprise.

Natty
12-10-2001, 09:33 PM
DOTT- just putting the hampster in the freezer and then being told he doesn't look too happy in there.

SMI- I just liked killing Guybrush, letting him turn blue and drowning :D I'm nasty

Indy And The Fate Of Atlantis- love trashing Sophia's speech at the start with Nur Ab Sal :D

MI2- so many of them, locking Stan in the coffin is probably one of my faves though

Trapezoid
12-10-2001, 10:00 PM
Ooh, I got one:
MI2 --- "Here's your soup."

I think that's the funniest line. If you don't remember the scene preceding it it's not funny, but you should all know what I'm talking about.

Hee, yeah. A good one following that one is when Guybrush tries to walk into the kitchen again after exiting it through the window. He goes something along the lines of "I took a break. It's legal, I know my rights!"

In SOMI: The entire fight sequence that took place behind the wall...

"Spray gopher repellent on horde of ravenous gophers"

Junaid
12-11-2001, 01:55 AM
I liked all the times in EMI when you see "2 hours later"

And I like it when Guybrush jumps out the Lucre Bank window, and sais "ouw"

Ryback
12-11-2001, 02:53 AM
Fate of Atlantis: The whole opening scene, with Indy falling through various rooms while the credits roll: I still love it.

MI2: The dream sequence.

Day Of The Tentacle: The whole game counts as a great LucasArts moment. It rocks.

Grim Fandango: Just the moment at the beginning of Year 2, when you're exploring Rubacava and it's just TOTALLY FRIGGING HUGE, not to mention utterly spectacular. My jaw kept dropping for about ten minutes just running around...

Sam and Max: Conroy's little song...

EMI: The whole pirate re-education cutscene. Gotta love creepy Guybrush :)

SMI: Insanity at the Mansion. I don't know why, but that cutscene just had me rolling around with laughter. There wasn't even anything happening on the screen! And immediately following that, the romantic moment on the pier. It's just perfect...

The Adventurer
12-11-2001, 10:09 AM
SMI: "Thats the Second Bigest Monkey Head I've ever seen!" The defining line of diologe that made monkey island the cool game it is.

MI2: When you finaly figureout to use the monkey on the pump. What was Lucasarts thinking with that puzzle!

CMI: Murry:...As I stride through the gates of hell carring your head on a pike!"
Guybrush: Stride?
Murry: All right then Role. Role through the gates of hell carring your head on a pike! Must you take the fun out of every thing?"

EMI: When Guybrush washes up on monkey island and has the diologe with Timmy. Guybrush: "Ok Timmy. For the kids."

GF: Drunken Glotis

Day of the tentacle.
The whole damn game had me in stitches.
There was this one bit that I made a save of just before it happened, y'know the bit at the end where Laverne and Hoagie are stuck together?
Well, when she escapes and the clothes slap back, I found the delay before he moves hilarious!

Sheer Genius!

My other moment has to be one of the first scenes in MI2, when you get like one million pieces o'eight.....and then Largo steals it all. That and in CMI when you get all that COOOOOOOOL stuff in your pants! And you spend like hours looking at all and then the dumb snake eats it all and you're like YOU DUMB SNAKE WHY WHY WHY DID YOU HAVE TO EAT ALL THE COOL STUFF IN MY PANTS!!!!!:evil6:

The snake didn't eat it. It gets sucked out of your pants in the quicksand. "Now there's an odd sensation."

I know I'm coming in a bit late on this discussion but I have to throw in my faves.

First off, the entirety of MI1 is my absolute favorite. I love that game. It's my favoritest game ever. "Say Hello, Roger." "Hello, Roger." .... "I think I'd just like to browse." "Don't put your lips on anything."

MI2: The Guybrush/Elaine scene at the party. "Have you gained weight?"

CMI: The cannibals, esp. Lemonhead. Guybrush acts like he's "blessing" the cheese before he throws it into the volcano.

GF: Too many to name... but especially the part where Manny uses his scythe to cut the flowers off Salvador's body.
And...
"Gracias ... Toto Santos."
That game is so gorgeous and dramatic.

Schmatz
12-11-2001, 04:25 PM
I forgot about that part! That part so rules... the slow-mo and everything... definately adding it to my list...

Bobbin
12-11-2001, 06:20 PM
My favorite is in Monkey I sland 1 if you steal the idol before defeating the swordmaster. (You can't defeat Carla first or this won't happen). Anyway Elaine comes to rescue guybrush and their is the love sequence where they names like Plunder Bunny and Sugar Boots. That was great.

In EMI at the first in the governer's mansion if you look at the bedroom door and Guybrush says "The door to our bedroom, OH yeah!!!" in a seductive voice. It's hilarious

In Sam and Max at the first where Max pushes the guy off the railing and says "random acts of violence are my forte" I loved that one.

All I can think of now.

MI2- Guybrush the dog 'she named her dog Guybrush?!' Just reminds me of Indy 'we named the dog Indiana'

JiveMonkey
12-11-2001, 11:42 PM
wow, I remember Kings Quest 5, it was actually the first adventure I ever played, I played it when I was like 12 when I got it in some 5 foot 10 pack of CD games for christmas. I used to remember thinking that I had to get past the desert to continue so I'd keep wandering and wandering in the desert until I'd die or get bitten by a scorpion. And then I'd think, "Wow, I must not have walked fast enough." And I always hated that stupid owl cause I never knew my computer could talk and if it could it shouldn't sound like that. I also remember my first time dying in KQ5, I went into some house and someone locked me in the basement, and I'm sitting there thinking what the *#@$?!

Trapezoid
12-11-2001, 11:52 PM
I got KQ6 in a similar CD pack like JiveMonkey. The sense dwarfs were cool. And the labyrinths were tough. But I always liked that hole-in-the-wall creature.

No, you really don't. Because by the time you reach 40, those "mellons" will have become saggy and unattractive. Gimme small, pert boobs, anyday.

Here's a good rule of thumb for you ladies: Take a pencil and place it, horizontally underneath your breast (doesn't matter which one). Then raise your arms over your head. If the pencil falls, you'll be fine for another 5 years...if it is still in place, you're in trouble... and should start doing some pectoral exercizes.

No, this has nothing to do with lucasArts games, but you started it.

King's Quest Games aren't lucasArt games either, but they are great. KQ #s 4-7 are still some of my favorites.

That's a good one, Endy.

I hope no one has mentioned Lola's death scene in Grim Fandango. I thought that one was very memorable and dramatic. One of a few salient serious moments in the whole set of LEC adventures, along with the scene that Sarah mentioned earlier.

Natty
12-12-2001, 04:10 AM
I think I need to go get a pencil, I'll be back in a jiffy :p

OK- I'm gonna have saggy boobs :p Happy now? You can all make fun of me :D Actually... wait I forgot to lift my arms up, hmmmmm I did it twice, once the pencil fell the other time it stayed in place? I guess that means they're gonna be kinda saggy? I don't know? Do you really need to know all this anyway? :p

Take heart Yoha, Natty, and the rest of you ladies. If you took me seriously and are worried, you ladies can always perform certain exercizes to firm up. We, men can't do anything to add ...erm... length. :(

It doesn't suprise me that the women here can joke about this, while the men have been noticably quiet. The men are all: "Erm...could we get back to the subject please?" It's been my observation that women are braver than men in almost all things.

It's no accident that Elaine was written as a mightier pirate than Guybrush. In life, women are stronger-willed and they merely allow the men to think they're the ones in charge.

We stumble through life, guys ...and women pick up the pieces of our mess. From your mothers to your lovers ...thank goodness for women. :)

My fav Moment is in CMI when you mix the drink for the first time and fake your death.

"Game Over"

"you scored 0 out 800 points"

guybrush "Stop it guys I'm not really dead"

and then in the cript:

"Sounds, From the dead, the dead that surround me. They must know my secret... Wait a sec I have no screcret"

The favorite (or at least the most atmospheric) moment must be from the opening scenes of The Dig, when the sun comes into view from behind the asteroid, Low says "May all your prayers be with us" and Michael's stunning music goes crescendo. I get shivers from that part every time. *thinks about it* *shivers*

Another great one is in Grim Fandango: the transition movie between the first and the second year, when the camera first tracks up the restaurant tower, stops in the sky and then tracks back to the casino with excellent cinematic scoring from Peter is a true winner. (And the best cutscene in the game, IMHO.)

Mine would be either that or the bit when manny scythes the flowers off salvador's body (someone else said that i think) but that bit is truly amazing, the music, the slow-mo, ahhhhhh....

Joonas!!! How ya doing buddy!

Ok, I got another fave moment, I know most of ya think it's corny as anything... but in The DIG when Maggie Robbins comes back at the end, with that smile on her face... awww man, I was so happy! *sniff*

And I think someone already mentiond the Plunder Bunny scene from MI1.. which you don't always get to see.. true classic!

All the Best

What is up with that really sketchy scene in GF where Manny goes off with glottis to the scene of the contamination in the diner in the beginning? I remember it being all sketchy and Picasso-like but then they never did that again for the rest of the game....just doesn't really make sense from my recollection.

MI1: The machine
MI2: Pumping the monkey
MI3: Listening to Mr. Fossey speak
MI4: Monkey Kombat
MM: Solving the Ted puzzle
DOTT: Freezing the hamster
Indy3: The crypts
Indy4: Playing with the flashlight
Indy/IM: The dialog box asking me if I'm sure I want to quit
FT: That cool part just after the iMuse setup, but right before the end credits.
GF: Year 2
S&M: Electrocuting Max

BTW, I tried that pencil trick and my man-boobs could hold two pencils, three pens, computer mouse, five sheets of paper, and a turkey leg. Guess this means I need to play less video games, eh?

Just kidding. I have no man-boobs - just wanted to make the girls feel better. (I am happily married, so that is *NOT* a pickup line.)

Go here to get it here (http://www.mounted-games.com/scummvm/index.php)

That site is rather out of date, mind - the latest CVS tree has pretty much full support for DOTT, MI1 and MI2 (cd versions only) and fairly complete support for S&M. The Dig is the latest work in progress, you may have more luck than some. ScummVM makes it possible to play your old lucasarts scumm games under Linux, BeOS, Windows 9x/2000/XP and even on your iPaq PocketPC (forgotten the link to that one tho).

Latest builds can be found here: http://scummvm.sourceforge.net/daily/

Note when downloading the windows builds - change the extension from .gz to .exe - they arn't REALLY gzipped..

[Edit: Actually, I just discovered the latest builds have music turned off. I'll get that fixed ASAP; if it doesn't work today, try tommorow :]

Amazing! That's my favourite part too.

No no, I quite like the ending cutscene, in which the dialogue goes something like this: "I'm not really a communist. I just pretended to be evil." "Really? Great! Let's go drink vodka!"

Hey, Infernal Machine had some cool levels.

Too bad my CD 1's missing, I can only play half of them. :(

And my Grim CD 1 is broken. Since I don't have it installed at the moment I can't play any of it. What is is with me?

My all-time favorite moment is in Monkey Island 2 when you put the rat in the vichyssoise and have the bartender go ask the cook about it. The dialogue is just hilarious after you hear the barkeep take a sip and the little rat starts squeeking. "OH MY GOD" followed by, "you're fired" and "look at all the hair! And what's this stuff!? I'll never get rid of this junk." And then he comes back out of the kitchen, places the bowl on the bar, and tells Guybrush, "here ya go."

Yah, I already said that one. It's "Here's your soup." :)

Oh yeah, I guess I should actually try reading the whole thread or something. Although this one is up to 90 something replies.

From CMI:

- I make my living off the hard work and talant of others.
- You're a project leader on a computer game?

whoa, this is like a thread before I was born.

My fav LA moment? when Boston has to cut off Brink's hand with a dull alien jawbone.
I laughed my ass off. Who would've guessed The Dig would have so much humour in it?

Thats what the Land of the Living looks like, its only used there because thats the only scene where you see the land of the living. I thought it was very clever to have such a stark contrast in visual style to the Land of the Dead.

I wish there was more of the Land of the Living though... it's a bit like the Carnival in COMI, it only got one screen and I wanted to wander around more!

Anyhoo:

Maniac Mansion: The beginning, when Bernard tries to run away.
Indy Last Crusade: When Indy, Dad and Marcus enter the Temple of the Grail, watch a head fly across the screen, and Indy goes "This must be the place".
SOMI: "I found the Lost Treasure of Mélée Island & all I got was this lousy T-Shirt"
MI2: The Dream Sequence. My all-time fav.
S&M: "I think that punk learned a valuable lesson Sam."
"Me too, Max. I didn't realise the lower lip could stretch completely over the head. Amazing."
DOTT: "If you want to save the world, you have to push a few old ladies down the stairs."
Indy Fate of Atlantis: The fight between Indy and Kerner in Marcus' office. Have you listened to the sound? It's like they're really scrapping!
Full Throttle: The March of the Bunnies. 'Nuff said.
COMI: "I think I broke my skull. I'm all skull!" Anything involving Murray, really.
Grim Fandango: "Híjole, I'm gonna miss the poisoning!" Actually, no, it's the Ode to the Moon.
Indy Infernal Machine: I still have a soft spot in my heart for this game. The Meroe is just incredible. Indy pulls up in his jeep, and you can see practically the entire level! (sort of, it's hidden beneath pyramids and sand a bit)
EFMI: Me, cheering and clapping loudly when I saw Murray again. Otherwise it's the 'Use' and 'Pick Up' commands when performed on Elaine. Or the Jump Off Cliff command. Or the Wedding Gifts sequence. Or "I bet you can't hit that guy over there". Or "You want to see a move? Here's a move!"
Take your pick.

When Manny joins the Seabees' strike

"Hell no we wont work!"
"Bogan is a big fat jerk!"
"Sea bees, FREE bees!"
etc.

I spent ages just chanting along trying to keep in time

Also, in CMI

Mr Fossey "thats strange, there was no splash"
Guybrush "SPLASH!"

and

"like throwing cheese into a lactose intolerant volcano?"

Also the guy with the monocle peeing on the candle....

Heh Shuz, JiveMonkey posted that almost three years ago. Whoever bumped this thread ought to be shot. ¬

Just to expand on that though, JiveMonkey must have been playing GF with his eyes closed.

Maniac Mansion(and Delxue)When Bernard tries to run away.

MI1: Guybrush falls off the cliff.

MI2: When Guybrush sees the guard, when Guybrush digs up the bone and his underpants are revealed.

MI3: The hot sand "Ow, Yeow, Hot!"(Really hillarious if helium is consumed first!)

MI4: When Guybrush and Elaine first see the Statue Pirate LeChuck, when you show the duck to Pegnose, when Guybrush shoots himself in the Mysts O' Tyme.

Day of the Tentacle:Pushing Edna down the stairs, ruining Ed's stamps, putting a faux skunk in the Tentacle Jail, zapping Laverne, the ending

Sam & Max: Whenever Sam & Max get beat up by Lee-Harvey"Knock it off! Heeeelp! Aieeee! And stay out!"

Grim Fandango: The Glottis-Go-Round "Mannnny! Yooooouuuu prooooommmmiiiiiiised!", when Manny and Glottis are onboard the S. S. Lola "Glottis, do something! Okay! AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!"
