One of the funniest sceens, IMO, is in The Longest Journey. It's at the crash site in front of the Police station. In a cut like sceen while the reporter is doing her thing April is in the background running, turning, jumping and really mugging for camera. And then what the reporter says when she thinks she is no longer on the air. As long as that sceen was I had to play it again. Thanks for the laughs. smile Re

My memory of the open mike bit in GF was that before Manny let the folks with the political book know he was an agent for the underground, he always got rejected, and afterwards he got clicked. Another part of that scene that was funny is how if he asked the beatnik woman (name?) to do a poem after he'd done one, she'd repeat his poem and get clicked, no matter what the response was to him. He'd then complain about how she stole his poem.

Olivia. If you can string your responses right with her, she will give you 2 poems. 1- a short one with the Italian origins of the title "Grim Fandango", and another beat one lasting around 1-2minutes with bongos accompaniment. Now that you mention it, Olivia claims to Manny that it would be too indulgent to read her poems at her own club but then jumps at every chance Manny so gently suggests so. laugh

wysewomon- Ooooh. Haven't managed to get Manny to thank me. Thanks!

I was totally surprised & laughed out loud the first time I adjusted the settings in Faust-7 Games of the Soul & Mephisto said 'Oh, we've got a real pro here' or something to that effect.

What a funny surprise!

I like the part in Zork Grand Inquisitor where an elephant like character is guarding a cave, after you try several items in your inventory to get past him , he says "Oh sure, just try everything in your inventory, somethings gotta work!" cracked me up when I 1st heard it!

I also remember in GK1, if you try to 'take' Grace, Gabe says "Don't I wish!"

I think there are a lot of funny lines in the Tex Murphy series, but the Journeyman series still has my favorites. Arthur is just too funny. In addition to the line noted by Lady K, I think of the scene on the wall of Atlantis where Arthur comments that Gage could pretend to be a plumber and then he quips, "Quick, Gage, show 'em your butt crack!" Or in the Andean world when Arthur starts singing "Up, Up, and Away," when they get in the balloon. And many more.
Some of the lines by Tex in the new Nancy Drew Shadow Ranch are pretty hilarious. It is more the tone in which he delivers his closing "Ya-hoo" or "If you last that long."
I am glad developers take the time to inject humor into games. It makes them more enjoyable.

One of the Grim Fandango beat poems I really liked went something like:
I called my cat Boney
Til she said it wouldn't do.
I asked her why?
She said, sister,
that's what I've been calling you.

There is a place in Black Dahlia where you could start the room spinning round and round til Jim Pearson falls down. When he gets up, he looks right at you and says "Now cut that out!"

One final piece of (unintended) humor. In Hitchcocks: final cut, there is a place late in the game where the (male) main character dresses up in a long gown, which went great with his whiskers. I was so delighted I spent a good ten minutes making him leap up and down the stairs in his pretty dress. Leap, leap, leap! rotfl rotfl

Just finished a quick (5th time) run of "J-Man 3-Legacy of Time" to see it in all it's glory on my 19" LCD Screen. WOW!!!

Another of (my FAVE happydance ) Arthur's routines is when Gage openes a Map trunk in the Lighthouse. He goes thru all sorts of comments on a nasty looking piece of fuzzy carpet, the best is 'looks like Shattner's rug'. rotfl
