What do you think? I think he got shot a number of times. Note Domino's remark when Manny looks a picture in his office and says, "Is that the picture that came with the frame?". Dom says, "That suit come with those holes?".

I'm not quite sure what you're talking about, but direct all discussion involving Grim Fandango characters to the Grim Fandango forum so I can pretend it's used. :(

I think Dom’s saying that Manny’s clothes are scruffy, not that he got shot several times. Besides, those two things are completely separate. Why would Manny still be wearing the clothes he died in? :)

But if you ask me, the Voodoo Lady LeChuck killed Guybrush. And Guybrush’s real name is Manny. Yes.

Guybrush got the mexican accent from living in the land of the dead for so long.

What you don't know Gabez is that the voodoo lady is Lechuck.

And Guybrush’s real name is Manny. Manny Threepwood perhaps?

Regarding Manny's death, who knows, since he prefers not to talk about it.
But something must have gone wrong since he's paying off a little debt to the powers that be by working at the DoD.

I think he was set up in his real life. He did something bad but only because he had no other choice. That's what I 'feel' anyway. He can't really be a cold harded serial killer or anything. Maybe he killed for love, but only because there was no other way.

Manuel didn't necessarily do anything in life to deserve getting stuck at the Department of Death. Prior to founding the LSA, we know that Salvador Limones worked as a reaper. But after Sal is killed, we learn that he was actually entitled to a ticket on the number 9 train all along. We know that the DOD is corrupt, the storyline revolves around people being denied the passage that is owed to them, and at this point we learn that extends to souls sentenced to "community service". How this applies to Manny is open to debate.

But Manny knows he has to pay off his debt - I mean, that guy at the start laughs at him - "at least there are some people who are worse off than me" or somethin like that. I don't think he was screwed by the system or anything.

I'm afraid I don't see your point. Manny would know he was stuck working for the DOD whether his debt is legitimate or not.

I see your point lucas tones, but he could also be speaking with sarcasm.
No one realy knows what manny did, and not many people want to know..it's like watching a football game and all ready knowing the final score and every play. It would ruin the game!

It's alive.. IT'S ALIVE! I really don't know, why I said that? Manny will never die! He will always live in our liver :rolleyes:

Ok, it's a mystery why Manny got stuck working for the DoD. But what I'm curious about is, what happened at the christmas party?
It sounds as if they had a hell of a party. I wish they had said more about it in GF.

i think if they made a sequil or maybe even a prequil it would kick ass, but they should still put some kind of "mystery" in it, maybe start the game from his childhood and fallow it up untill his death. but leave minor deatails out that only the player can fill in with his imanagation.

Question: does many even know what he did in his past life? He knows that he has to stay back and do comunity servis untill his det is payed, but does he know why?

01-24-2003, 12:13 PM
He probably knows, since he says that he prefers not to talk about it. Although I cannot remember right now to whom he says it, I think it was Domino...

what if he was told what he did, but they lyed to him and told him somthing else.

01-26-2003, 02:31 PM
Manny doesn't know what he have done...

At the christmas-party Manny get drunk, and I think he danced with Domino or something like that, I can't remember it :cool:

Of course they know about their lives. How could Meche be so sure that she never killed anyone and had no other dark spots in her past life?

No one was suggesting that Manny didn't have memory of the events of his life. The question is whether he knows what, if anything, he did to deserve indentured servitude at the DOD.
