** Asking the three plot-important beatniks about a poem you read on stage after you made them think you're part of the revolution gets this winning exchange:
--->'''Manny:''' So what did you think of my poem?\\
'''Slisko:''' I liked it. It was sad and beautiful, like my mother.\\
'''Alexi:''' I despised it. It was too short and said nothing to me, like my father.\

* Meta Example: in the [[WhatCouldHaveBeen original script]] for ''VideoGame/GrimFandango'', Creator/TimSchafer mentions the UnresolvedSexualTension between Manny and Carla in Year 2. 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."]]
* In the ''Remastered'' Director's Commentary, Tim Schaefer told [=Peter McConnell=] that yes, SteamPunk was around in the 90's.

to:

* Look at the moon while on the dock and Manny will start to recite a poem. After the first verse, Velasco who's sitting a few feet away will join in.
--> '''Manny:''' It shone pale as bone/as I stood there alone/and I thought to myself how the moon/
--> '''Manny and Velasco:''' that night cast its light/on my hearts true delight/and the reef where her body was strewn.

** Bruno is a source of fun. He doesn't even qualify for a walking stick - he's packed in a ''casket'' for a four year trip as ''luggage'', though you do give him a complimentary gift: a mug reading "Today Is The First Day of the ''End'' of Your Life!" Later, in Year 4, [[BrickJoke you find Bruno's casket]]. When it opens, it's the same tinkling sound you heard when freeing him from his mortal body. His reaction to seeing you is absolutely priceless.
