* The ''MonkeyIsland'' games are based entirely on this, but the [[YouFightLikeACow insult swordfighting]] is probably the highlight.

[[AC:Tales]]
* Of all the options available during the swordfight at the beginning of episode 2 of ''Tales Of Monkey Island'', few are as satisfying as inspecting the ship's mast. Repeatedly.
* "Nice cans. ...I mean, nice cans."
* Having to walk [[spoiler:[=LeChuck=]]] through a particularly simple puzzle. Especially if you've used the SCUMM interface of the earlier games. "Use... breath mints on... self."
** "Use... claw thingy on... self."
* Whenever Guybrush talks with [[AFoolForAClient his client]] in episode 4 of ''Tales''. Go on, ask him where he was on the night of August 15th...
* [=DeSinge=] sings while carrying out his master plan.
-->'''[=DeSinge=]''': Allouette, I will live forever, allouette, immortalité!

[[AC:Curse]]
* Murray the Talking Skull's dialogue in part I of ''TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland.'' "If I could get my hands on that gunner! If I could get my hands, period..."
* "I'm not bald. I just have a very high widow's peak."
* Also from ''[[CurseOfMonkeyIsland Curse]]'': "You fool! You just fed cheese to a lactose-intolerant volcano god!"
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1-9my0tsutw "We'll surely avoid scurvy if we all eat an orange."]]
* Any instance where Guybrush uses the ventriloquism book to throw his voice in Part II of ''Curse'', but of particular note is when he uses it on the monkey pirate captain and does a [[StarTrek Captain Kirk]] impression:
-->"Look at us! We're all...''monkeys''."
-->"You mean in the Darwinian sense, sir?"
-->"No, I mean in the quite ''literal'' sense."
* From ''CurseOfMonkeyIsland'', in the sequence where Guybrush fakes his death a second time to get buried in the Goodsoup crypt, Hotel manager Griswald Goodsoup offers this gem:
-->'''Griswald''': Oh dear! He's had a sudden and completely unexpected relapse of death!
* Mixing hangover medicine with alcohol in ''TheCurseOfMonkeyIsland'':
-->''Drink immediately begins to bubble and change color.''
-->'''Guybrush:''' This makes the drink ''oh'' so much more appealing. Skold!
-->''Guybrush downs the beverage, and instantly falls to the floor.''
* "MADRE DE DIOS! ES [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E28WrhpTzQA EL POLLO DIABLO!]]"

[[AC:Secret]]
* The two sequences in which you try to steal the idol in the first place. Much of the action takes place automatically in a room that you can't see; all you can see is dialogue and the actions that Guybrush is doing, many of which you can't normally do in the game. The highlight is perhaps [[spoiler:"Hypnotize quarrelsome rhinoceros"]].
* Two words: Rubber tree.
* ''Secret Of Monkey Island'' has the option to let Guybrush greet [[TheBigGuy Meathook]] with the non-sequitur "I'm [[{{Loom}} Bobbin]] [[ShoutOut Threadbare]], are you my mother?" His Response? "No, your mother was a duck."
* After [[spoiler: sinking the Sea Monkey with a giant rock]] in Secret of Monkey Island:
-->'''Guybrush:''' Whoops.
* Repeatedly [[spoiler: excaping from the vegetarian cannibals hut]] causes them to [[spoiler: increase security until the hut has a steel vault door]], yet the obvious [[spoiler: excape route is apparently not noticed]].
