Gabriel Knight in GK3, also had the ability to stuff huge items in his pants pocket, like Mosely's entire sports jacket.

Also, in GK2, when he's starting to go through the physical pangs of turning into a werewolf, and Gracie is trying to comfort him, by wiping his fevered brow, he says, "Mind the hair, Gracie, mind the hair."

Yes, GF! laugh The part where he makes wise cracks at the Living in the restaurant. And Oh! Pressing "P" for pickup when he stands above the kitty litter. He breaks into roaring laughter for a full 10secs!

Hey wysewoman- what happens if you can string a couple of "correct" lines together? More fingersnapping instead of hissing? I can never muster beyond 3 lines correctly...

Its nice when games don't take themselves too seriously.

Ok, Curse of Monkey Island still has the all time favorite line for me.

Guybrush is walking along the beach and stops to talk to a gentleman tanning himself (my memory is bad, so forgive the inaccuracies). Says "what do you do for a living?". The gentleman says "I live off the blood and sweat of other people". Guybrush says "oh, you're a talent agent?". The gentleman says "no, I'm a production manager for a large game development company".

I laughed so hard at that; just imagining the people making this game and getting a dig in at their boss. What a hoot!

Senor calavera--

I didn't know there was a correct or incorrect way to do it! It's been a year or so, but it seems that most of my recitals went on for 4 or 5 lines and got fingersnapping, and Manny just said "thank you" and did another...guess I'm just intuitive about lame poetry or something wink

The Monkey Island series,Grim Fandango,Simon the Sorcerer 1&2,Discworld 1&2,Fable,Tony Tough,Runaway,and all the old Accolde games all contained great humor. I must say that may all time favorite was in Kings Quest 2 on top of the mountain. You look into the hole in the rock and they had a preview of their Space Quest game that played. That cracked me up. rotfl

In the last Kings Quest, Connor could get a drink from the fountain in the village. Its really nice in an adventure game not to have to feed/water/rest your charactor but I certainly didn't mind letting him have a drink. smile So, while I was thinking and thinking what to do next, I was clicking and letting Connor drink and drink and drink. And then he BURPED.

The Journeyman series had some good humour as well. The only one I can think of at the moment is "I believe the room behind this door was neither modelled or rendered. Whatever that means" which was a classic way of explaining why this door will *never* open.

Speaking of burping, there was that mushroom-shaped fruit tree in the Neverhood. The third time you ate off it, Klaymen would burp the LONGEST, most hilarious burp I've ever heard. It must be something like TWO minutes long. I laughed till I cried! lol

lol

In the movie Groundhog Day, when the Bill Murray character steps in an icy puddle, someone tells him "Watch out for that last step, it's a doozie!" Definitely a tip of the hat to KQ5, since the whole movie is about doing something over and over and over again till you get it right, just like in an adventure game!!

The second time I played JP3: Legacy of Time, I was in Tibet in the greenhouse and knew exactly what to do with the apple. After getting my reward, Arthur quipped, "You've been reading the solutions guide again, haven't you Gage?" lol
