- I'm here for Charlie's money!
- Hmm-hmm...
- Ha ha ha...
- HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!
- Ha ha ha! No really! He said you have a lots of it...
- Oh! I've got a lots of it, but none of them is his! Ha ha ha ha ha!
- Hah hah! Hooo...

Manny and Maximino

- It must be a crusher for the corals, or looks more like a giant hair-curler to me.

Manny

- Hey, sailors! ...Hmmm, they know I don't like when they ignoring me. It's a code-red situation! This is not a drill! Watch after the disguised assassins on board! Hello? Is anybody there?

Manny

Manny is talking to the dead sailors, and as a dead. But he can't help it that he's already dead, because it's a grim adventure.


Manny: Hah! "Bust-all", my ass!

Glottis: We're going to soar like eagles - like eagles on.. pogo sticks!

Classic line, but there are so many great lines in Grim Fandago that it's difficult to choose one line in particular that stands out.
I think though that one of the funniest and saddest parts of Grim is
spoiler:
when manny is saying goodbye to Glottis, the scene genuinely tugs the heartstrings, but then Glottis' reaction is both very sweet and quite amusing

A lot of the funny stuff has been said, but what about these:

Manny
Speaking of metal detectors...

That whole scene with Carla is so funny.

Also, in the first scene with Meche,

Manny
Did you kill much when you were alive?
Meche
Very little.
Manny
Never killed anybody?
Meche
I have to confess, I never killed anybody.
Manny
Not even a teensy bit of killing?
Meche
Maybe I just wasn't trying hard enough

And I love the sound of the clapping in the Blue Casket. It sounds like crabs or something.

I just played GF again for the first time in ages. It is the greatest game ever. Even better than the MI games, and that's saying something.

EDIT:
Oh and this gem:
Manny
Hey, guard!
Salvador
How's my little Count of Monte Cristo?
Manny
Cramped. Ready for walkies.

Priceless.

"What? What makes you think I have a gun?"
"You are working for the most armed organisation. Don't tell me they didn't issue you a gun!"
"They didn't issue me a gun!"
"What? Is it because of you? I'm not buying this, Manny!"

"Nice clothes."
"Thanks. Have you ever figured out how I did get these clothes in small, unknown, dangerous and unlivable island like this?"
"Uh, no."

I think that the Funniest part in the game was when you find out that Celso Florice turned his walking stick into a mop and was using it at the end of year one. Basicly there were a lot of .Funny parts. That was one of my favorites though.

em...i think you are wrong...he actually said (when you ask for the walking stick) that he has broken it on the head of one moster at the forest so as to escape (funny also )

My all-time fave ...

If you try to use the Bust-All on Meche, Manny will say:
"I think I'd try couple's counseling first."

And if you try to have Manny pick up the kitty litter, he just starts to laugh. It makes me laugh.

There are loads of funny moments. I couldn't list all of mine. But one of my favourites was at the Blue Casket when Manny was trying to be funny on teh stage.

Ooh, that reminds me ...

When Manny's in the Blue Casket and you have him look at the sign by the door he goes, "Blue Casket. I should have named my club something like that. But no, I had to use my own name, like an idiot."

- How did it go for you in the poisoning?
- Well, let's say that the lady Maria got her secret passion in trains.
- You gave her the double-N-ticket?
- Choo choo! There she goes!

Manuel and Domino

- Manny, you couldn't find any sale or a jackpot.
- I got a sale right here!
- I'm talking "premium sale", Calavera! Like the Domino has.
- How am I supposed to get premium sales by the scumbag clients you're sending me for?
- Hey!
- Now you're blaming with the clients? I've had it with you, Manny. If you can't sell the tickets to the clients before next day you're out! Out in the street! No job! No more working off your time! Just your fancy suit and a big smile for whole long time now!
- Who do you call scumbag? Why I oughta?!

Don Copal, Manny Calavera and Bruno Martinez.

Now don't forget that Bowlsley. He's crazy when spooked.

GF is funny almost all the time:

I really loved how manny laughs when you try to use the kitty litter, hehe.

"You think you're better than me?"
"NO!"



Also:

"Gotta cover my ass!"
"Yes you do."

"they might not realise how much scarier a dingo is than a regular dog."

That's it, I'm gonna use tons of GF quotes in my game!

Manuel Calavera: You can't hide from the Grim Reaper! Especially when he's got a gun!

Manuel Calavera: My boss is always giving me these motivational books -- "They Bought the Farm, Now Sell Them the Cows"... stuff like that.

[Looking at the door to his office.]
Manuel Calavera: Wasn't too long ago the name on that door was "Supply Closet."

Endgame at Hector's greenhouse on the hill (after he shoots you and you use the liquid nitro on the wound.) If you walk up around the side instead of shooting the tank right away you'll have a pointless shootout with Hector. You'll hear that line as one of Manny's taunts if you stick at it.


Jolly good.

LOL...

There are some lines that are not included in the final game. One of them is this:

MANNY: You'd think that Sal, with all his conspiracy theories, would have told me there were alligators in the sewers.

Also


Membrillo
An engraved ring... a belt buckle with somebody's name on it...

Manny
He, he, he, he, who would wear a belt buckle with their...

Manny
Oh



and


Manny
Glottis, cover your ears!

*ship is ripped in half by Anchor*

Glottis
What was that?

Manny
The dotted line, buddy.



AND finally, random goodness!



Pugsy
I'll bite you, I swear to God.




Manny
That gesture might confuse her.


Manny
It confuses me.





Bibi
..waaaa-hoo-hoo...


Manny
You know, I really do want to help.


Pugsy
Then why don't you?


Manny
My butt's too big to sit on one of those little perches.


Bibi
Ahhhhm! I'm going to tell Meche you said that word to us.







Manny
Now all we have to do is wait for the room to fill up and we'll just
float on out of here!

*A while later...*

Manny
Well, this is disappointing.



Manny
I can't talk about my underground gig, or I'd put the whole scene in dangerville.




You might recognise me.

Lupe: Why is it that all the people who don't go home are the same people who just love to gamble?


Manny: Well, I guess when you've got nothing to go home to, you've got nothing to lose.


Lupe: Hey, we should put that over the door!


There's no earthly way of knowing which direction we are going. There's no knowing where we're rowing or which way the river's flowing. Is it raining? Is it snowing? Is a hurricane a-blowing? Not a speck of light is showing, so the danger must be growing. Are the fires of hell a-glowing? Is the grisly reaper mowing? Yes, the danger must be growing 'cause the rowers keep on rowing, and they're certainly not showing any signs that they are slowing. AAAGGHHH!!!

What is that horrible squeaking noise you're making?

Lightbulb Just reviving!

I'm making come-back in Lucasforums!

"Domino's door is locked! Probably scared if I steal one of his files. Not a bad idea, actually."

- Manuel Calavera

Manny:- "Glottis, I'll go up and find Meche!"
Glottis:- "What if that octopus comes back?"
- "Just poke in his eyes and steal his sub!"
- "Heh! Stupid octopus..."

"That monster upstairs is running me ragged!"

- Raoul

Did you ever notice that Glottis in High Rollers lounge is calling on Raoul the waiter. He is so humoristic when he's drunk!

Everything in this game is hilarious, but I never actually laughed at anything. It was more like "Wow, that is so funny!".

spoiler:
However, I did chuckle when Domino got killed in the coral crusher. Something in it was just so... funny. Later on I missed him, though.
