to:

* Why is the bar called the Bloody Lip? It's because the glasses they serve drinks in are broken bottles with jagged edges. The bar in fact gives you a crazy straw to hide the fact they had been getting lawsuits over it.
** Why does mixing drinks make your spit thicker? Because they are all based on syrupy liqueur based cocktails of the 80s, also why they are coloured opaque (artificial) colors.
* Though it's possible to buy a feather pen in the Booty Island shop, it's something of a red herring - on the sole occasion Guybrush needs a pen (for writing down the lyrics to Dem Bones), he already has one in his pocket which we don't otherwise see.
* The Woodsmith normally doesn't like you talking to him except when the plot requires him to fix your oar, at which point he shows genuine pride in his own work. It sort of makes sense, as you're actually giving him work instead of just wasting his time with chit chat (although for whatever reason, he doesn't make you pay for it).

* According to himself, Edward "Snugglecakes" van Helgen's name is the one pirates fear the most. But are they afraid of [[FluffyTheTerrible the person who bears the name]], or are they afraid of [[EmbarrassingNickname bearing the name itself]]?

* Either this or simply AccidentallyAccurate: Poodles were bred to be hunting dogs, and are actually pretty badass. The Governor's Piranha Poodles are actually surprisingly plausible.

* Lemonhead thinks that the midway games in the Big Whoop Carnival are rigged. He may be right, considering that Dinghy Dog™'s scale ''always shows 98 pounds,'' no matter how many items Guybrush is carrying.

**** Originally this was a reference to the tunnels that Guybrush finds at the end of ''Monkey 2'', but canon shifted somewhat after Ron Gilbert left the company.

* The guy behind Blondebeard's walk-thru speaker may sound unintelligible at first, but upon closer listening, I realized what he is really saying:
-->'''Guybrush:''' Hello?
-->'''Speaker:''' Welcome to Blondebeard's Chicken, can I take your order now?
-->'''Guybrush:''' I can't understand you, what was that?
-->'''Speaker:''' I said "Welcome to Blondebeard's Chicken, can I take your order now?"
-->'''Guybrush:''' Eh, forget it.
-->'''Speaker:''' Thank you.

* The spell that [=LeChuck=] casts on Guybrush in the fifth part in [[TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland Curse]] is the same spell that [=LeChuck=] casts on him at the end of [[MonkeyIsland2LeChucksRevenge MI2]]. The first time it brainwashed him completely, but the second time it only left Guybrush with a foggy head and childlike behavior, because he had built up a resistance to it, which explains how he managed to escape from it the first time.

** In the third game, notice how some of the skeleton pirates [[AndIMustScream don't have jaws.]]

* How did Walt the dog appear in the tunnels under Dinky Island to steal [=LeChuck's=] arm? Because they are connected to the tunnels under the Phatt Island waterfall.
