After climbing the rope at the DOD:
"Those are ugly ties. I can't believe I climbed up that thing!"
-Manny

In Domino's office:
"He doesn't even hide his booze in his cabinet. What kind of salesman is he?!"
-Manny

In the bottom of the sea of Lament:
"That light of mine is made by a coral."
"Yes, I remember I had that one too. It made a good hook of it."
- Chepito and Manny

In Don's office:
"Memo from the desk of Don Copal: Hey! Work orders are assigned by my office, and are not exchangeable among salesmen! Swapping, selling, and especially STEALING work orders will result in SEVERE disciplinary action."
- Manny


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

New untold one!

In the vault of the coral building on the edge of the world, using the bust-all on the coral archives:
Manny: Hah! "Bust-all", my ass!

Okay, where can I start, this game has various funny moments however, since I haven't used my PC and GF on a while now, I can't think of them all.
Most of the things I thought funny have already been posted.
Also, my copy of the game is in Spanish, so I'm not adding to the list the coversations I thought were funny.

You know, Manny always says something funny when you're choosing to pick something person or impossible things.

Here are some experimental samples:
1. Object: The moon in Rubacava port.
Manny's quote: "Don't have that kind of equipment."

2. Eva in LSA HQ, year 4.
"Not in front of Meche."

3. The huge crane vehicle in the edge of the world.
"Oh, I would... But my back!"

4. I may not be so sure about this. But anyway, the hamburger in the land of the living.
"I can't reap hamburgers. Cows are whole other bureau."
Meaning that they belong to another section than the humans, of course.

Find out more by trying it, and send some more here!

Do the car in the endgame: "I left my tow truck in my other pants."

"You know, we could die, right here, in this safe..."
"Nice line, but we're already dead, remember?"
"Right."

Not sure if this was said though but when you bring out your mini hammer in part 3 by Domino.
Domino-"Put that... that....that hahahahahahaha, ok you can take out the tiny hammer."(I think that's the correct quote) and I also laughed when....
Manny-"Coming home soon"(Too Glottis when he is drunk at the High Rollers Lounge in Part 2). Glottis-"What did you say little kitty, don't talk little kitty... JUST RUN BABY!!!" I laughed so hard (The End)

Well, I'm glad people keep mentioning funny things! I have found out one more joke:

In Rubacava, 1st year:
Velasco: - I'm good to know this town very well, like you are with the fog.

During the cutscene after you knock down the marrow tree and Glottis is messing with the Bone wagon's new hydraulics and Manny says something like: "I was beginning to worry that our transportation wasn't ostentatious enough" lol

Hehehe, yeah, this bit is great - it just falls so short of Manny's usually sharp tongue (or whatever he uses instead).
While we're at the Blue Casket, pretty much every line of Manny's poetry makes me chuckle as well. His delivery is just so random when trying to appear 'edgy', and the best part is, he's doing it on purpose. Love it =)

One laugh-out-loud part for me is when Glottis is totally hammered at the races. The music's so cool and swingin', and he's up there yelling at the cats... "YOU GOT IT!" What the hell!? xD

GF's humour is generally more reserved though, and this gives it a great deal more charm. Someone mentioned this quote before, when Manny's sort of interrogating Meche early on:

"Ever cheated on your husband?"
"Mr. Calavera, there's no ring on my finger..."
"... There's no skin on it either."

With Meche being all coy and innocent, the timing of Manny's blunt comeback is just superb. Such a perfect script overall ^_^


For your approval, ladies and gentlemen. For your enjoyment.

That's brilliant. I also love it when Manny goes to see Maximino and at one point of their dialogue, they start taking turns in laughing.

Oh man, the kitty litter laughter is a classic. I laughed out loud myself at that point, especially with Manny usually being all reserved when it comes to laughter and whatnot.

When Manny looks at the Hector's logo on the floor:

I'll bet Hector pauses here every day, and thinks to himself, "Boy I wish I could see past my gut and enjoy my expensive monogrammed floor!"

At the edge of the world near the train tracks in the gremlins home. Examine the coffee cup holder (Near that toaster) and he says "It's the mug rack, at the end of the world". Doesn't sound funny now but just the way he says it

haha yeah thats exactly right. Also one more point to add is the conversation with bowsley at the florist shop where you say "I'm not here to hurt you" Bowsley says "I'm Hector and I'm Here to hurt you!" or when you say "I'm not Hector I'm Manny Calavera" and Bowsleys says "I'm not Hector I'm Manny Calavera come to sprout ya" etc etc

In Year 3 if you use Meches stockings (with nothing else) Manny says:

"I would never wear these... they have a hole in them."

And if you use the stockings on Domino, Manny says:

"Nah, his thighs are to boxy"

I love it when Manny starts telling Nick that lawyer joke. Something like "So, a lawyer, his mother and a chicken are in a lifeboat. They start to get hungry, so the chicken says --" and then Nick pulls out a gun.

Again, reviving this thread... Grim Fandango's comedy knows no boundaries.

Manny and Celso
"You're going to have a great trip. I wished I was going too."
"Then why don't you? You could give me a lift."
"Oh, I can't leave until I've worked off my debt for the powers that be."
"Community services, eh?"

About cards
"This deck of cards is a little frayed around the edges. Then again, so am I. And I've got fewer suits."
"I've already got a card out, and I'm not dealing more until there's money on the table."
The latter cracks me up!

Picking up things
"It's not portable." (His computer in office)
"Could I take your hole punch?" Eva: "Hah! I doubt you could take my half punch."

Funny sound
When/where: When you're down in the garage for the first time before you meet Glottis. In more details, where the camera has Glottis shop to the left side and the cars on the right.
How: Walk behind a stock of tires and you'll hear a funny crash sound. Glottis will hear and talk to you. You probably can't miss it.


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

There were so many moments that made me laugh, I can't even remember them all, but here's one: Glottis in the High Roler's lounge, oh and the way he rushed off there, when you gave him the VIP pass.

The interrogation
Manny: "Are you sure you're Mercedes Colomar?"
Meche: "Sure. Would you like to see my birth-mark?"
- "Maybe later."
- "Well hurry up, because it's going to be cremated soon."

Or responding:
"On second thought, I better go."
"Well, it's being cremated by now anyway."

Paging system
- "I just wanna know where my driver is."
- "Do you want me to have him paged?"
- "No."
- "Good, because we don't have a paging system."
Or if you answer:
- "Yes."
- "Then get Don to stop being such a cheapskate and install a paging system."

Manny's persuasion
- "Quick! There's a fire! We have to drive the cars to safety!"
Glottis: - "No, not even a fire will get me out of here. I'm stuck here forever."
- "That makes two of us."

DOD's code
"Hm... Equal opportunity in the work place is the law. Amazing. It has been hanging up for so long and he's apparently never read it."
That's funny, since Manny got "bad" clients and now his driver is gone.

College
- "On second though, I bet I could figure it out on my own."
Domino: - "That's right, Cal! Give it the old college a try! Oh, whoops. I keep forgetting. You didn't go to college, did ya?"
- "Well, that's all I wanted to ask."
- "Well kid, come back anytime you'd like to continue your education."
Well, it's no wonder that Dom calls him "kid".

Nuns
- "I've got a nun, too."
Domino: - "Bruno is a strange name, wouldn't you say?"
- "Well, you know how cruel sister could be about... nicknames!"

"There's no limit on those"
- "Do you have any more dead worms back there?"
Clown: - "You've had enough of those."
- "You said there was no limit!"
- "Well how many do you have on ya?"
- "Five."
- "Yeah, well there's no limit up to five and there's a limit."

Damn gate
- "Okay, the beasts of black river are blowing bubbles at the bottom. So let's pour on through, huh Glottis?"
- "Manny, look at that badass gate. I can't drive through that! We have to find a key!"
- "I Hjole!"


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

Glottis: Hello, Manny!
Manny: Hola!
Manny: I just had a run-in with Domino and Meche. We're leaving town.
Glottis: Wha? Wha? How?
Manny: Domino's got Meche.
Manny: We're going after them tonight.
Glottis: What should I do?
Manny: Just sit here until I get a boat.
Glottis: Sit here.
Glottis: Check!
Glottis: Okay.
Manny: Later.
Glottis: Out.


Glottis: There was this one high-pitched whine it was making--really grating noise, you know?
Glottis: And I searched and searched, but I couldn't find the source of the noise, until we pulled in here.
Velasco: Was it the blower?
Glottis: No, it was Manny screaming in the back like a cat tied to a cruise missile!
