->''I've sailed the seven seas in search of archaic charms and curiosities; I've raided the sunken smelters of Popgowatu for the finest of tools; and I've worked by candlelight in the yawing quarters of my ship to forge together the raw materials into the finest of blades, all to finally put a bloody end to my undead rival and stealer of spouse. It is now that this sword is more than just a sword; it is a covenant! I'm not exactly sure what that word means, but it sounds right. The seas will sleep soundly tonight, for [=LeChuck's=] time is up!''

* ContestWinnerCameo: Lizink's Wig of Foppery, [[spoiler:which Bailiff Killick Hardtack is compelled to wear after losing his case against Guybrush]] in Chapter 4, is named after the [[http://www.telltalegames.com/community/blogs/id-498 screen name of Liz Johnston]], [[http://pc.ign.com/articles/102/1027699p1.html a native of British Columbia]], {{Canada|Eh}}, and Telltale Games' winner of the "How Has Guybrush Wronged You Competition" in the "Game Designer for a Day" contest ([[http://www.telltalegames.com/community/blogs/id-474 which started on July 14, 2009, a week after the release of Chapter 1]]); her winning line, "He dug up my perfectly good X!", appears in Hardtack's accusation against Guybrush. Not only that, but her name also appears on the list of "Designer for a Day Finalists" in the end credits of Chapter 4.
* ContinuityNod: It's unusual to see this trope in practice in this series, but ''Tales'' likes it. There are several references to previous Monkey Island games, particularly in a lot of optional dialogue in part 4. Example: ask Elaine to vouch for your character, and she'll give a long list of your deeds. [[spoiler:Just don't expect her to emphasize the positive, as heavily Poxed as she is.]]



* DevelopmentGag: According to the commentary, episode 1's bar fight had to get trimmed down to an offscreen cutscene in order to fit the episode in the Wii's 40 MB size limit. As a result, the bar was named Club 41 as in the 41st MB of content.

** In Chapter 4, when Elaine is a witness in court, one of the pirates in the audience says "Shave his belly with a rusty razor!", which is a line from the sea shanty "Drunken Sailor".
