** The entire speech is worth listening to since it's so ludicrous: Carla starts out talking about moving around due to her father's military service, and goes on a total ramble from there. It's worth listening to it all as [[spoiler:doing so without interrupting gets you an achievement/trophy in the ''Remastered'' version.]]
--->'''Carla''': Maybe if I smiled more daddy wouldn't have left us. We'd be together: you, me, daddy, and Grandma Hedwig, and Mr. Ruffus, and [[ItMakesSenseInContext I'd be wearing my Homecoming Queen crown and eating figs]] and-- and-- (sobbing) Oh mother!"

* After leaving the LSA office, Manny finds Glottis toying with the Bone Wagon's suspension features. He eventually walks up to the demon and takes his remote, presumably annoyed by his actions.

[[AC:General and Meta]]



* Glottis, talking about the [[CoolCar Bonewagon]]:
-->'''Glottis''': There was this one high-pitched whine it was making really grating noise, you know? 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!
* After talking Celso into buying tickets from Hector during act 4:
-->'''Hector Le Mans:''' We've had a lot of openings in this office in the last couple of years, and frankly we've had trouble filling them. I could really use a closer like you on the team!
** Whereupon Manny is shown ''his old office''.
* "Run you pigeons! It's RobertFrost!"
** The best part is that he squeaks the balloons afterward to punctuate it.



* During Act 3, Manny and Glottis run into Chepito, a hapless traveler who's been stuck wandering around in circles at the bottom of the sea because he's trying to follow a light he thinks is the moon. Part of a solution to a puzzle involves having Glottis grab his lantern and drag Chepito along with them, leading to this exchange:
-->'''Chepito:''' Where are you taking me?
-->'''Manny:''' To the moon!



* "So what's up with airplane food anyway?"
* Olivia's open mic poem, riffing on the beat-poetry of days gone by: Ashes, to ashes, to ashes, to ashes, to ashes, to me, to ashes, to ashes, to ashes.
** To get her to do it, you have to dialogue for a bit:
-->'''Manny:''' Maybe you should go up there to kick [open-mic night] off.
-->'''Olivia:''' Oh Manny, read poetry in my own club? That'd be like this whole place is a big temple built to worship... me.
-->'''Manny:''' Oh, come -
-->'''Olivia:''' (''immediately'') Okay!
** Manny himself can take to the open mic to deliver impromptu poetry, or...
-->'''Manny:''' ALRIIIIIGHT!! WHO'S READY TO ROCK AND ROOOOLLLL?!
-->''({{beat}} of awkward, unimpressed silence)''
-->'''Manny:''' ...Maybe later then...?
*** Then there's the way Manny greets some of the beatniks.
---->'''Manny:''' ''(brightly)'' Hi! What's ''your'' name!
---->'''Manny:''' [[IncrediblyLamePun Oh, look! Deadbeats!]]
* The contrast between the more subtle and subdued Manny and the [[GenkiGirl bundle-of-energy coat check girl Lupe]] is incredibly amusing, leading to some pretty funny exchanges of dialogue.
-->'''Manny:''' How's the flow tonight?
-->'''Lupe:''' [[AccidentalPun We're dead tonight, Manny.]] Everybody's back home for the Day of the Dead, I guess...except for the casino. The casino's hopping. 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!
* Here's a pretty clever one from the first act:
-->'''Manny''': I think we should team up, be partners.
-->'''Domino''': Oh, ''Manny'', I ''would'', but I'm too intimidated. I could never be partners with someone who was so much more of a ''man'' than me.
-->'''Manny''': Oh, come on. I've seen your wife.

* "Run you pigeons! It's RobertFrost!"
** The best part is that he squeaks the balloons afterward to punctuate it.
* '''Glottis''': (''acting it out'') [[LargeHam It's like they reached into my chest, and pulled out my heart! And threw it into the woods to...]] (''collapse'')
* "Aww, poor spiders. No more demon heart to eat."



* One of the possible dialogue options when Meche asks for Manny's gun (that he doesn't have).
-->'''Meche:''' Give me your gun.
-->'''Manny:''' Sure. Here it is. (''Manny looks in his inventory.'')
-->'''Manny:''' Okay, look, the problem is I just don't have one.
* "Aww, poor spiders. No more demon heart to eat."
* Manny can sneak up on Domino at The End of the World with a variety of different kinds of weapons or tools. Dommy will just raise a gun as if to FingerWag Manny until he puts the item away. However, if Manny tries to threaten Dommy with the "L'il Chipper" (a pick axe smaller than the palm of his hand), Dommy will simply giggle and say "All right, you can keep the tiny hammer."

This is followed by an embolded disclaimer: "A Note on Skeleton Sex: The official ''VideoGame/GrimFandango'' policy is [[YouDoNotWanttoKnow "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."]]
* Getting a handheld metal detector involves a largely optional (and mostly one-sided), but increasingly hilarious conversation between Carla and a drunk Manny. If you allow Manny to listen to Carla's ramblings long enough without bringing up his ''real'' interest, she eventually goes hysterical, giving you an opportunity to achieve your goal with this priceless line:
-->'''Manny:''' Here, let me hold that metal detector for you while you cry.

-->'''Glottis:''' ''(very drunk)'' Well, the doctors made me promise I wouldn't do it any more! ''(pause)'' BUT THEY CAN'T GET IN THE HIGH ROLLER'S LOUNGE, NOW CAN THEY?
