* SciFiWritersHaveNoSenseOfScale:Leslie and Melissa somehow managed to convert a VW minibus into a single stage to Mars and return to Earth spacecraft. Somewhat justified because it's a comedy game which involves aliens where Groucho glasses and new age science fiction tropes.

** You can also have Leslie, Melissa or both get back in their VW Bus-turned-spacecraft, turn the key and launch into space. Once you do this, whoever is in the spacecraft will effectively be out of the game for good(and will make a comment about it taking months to get back to Earth).

* TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture: Downplayed. The game takes place in 1997, with two visible technological "advances": People exclusively use "Cash Cards" instead of actual cash, and [=TVs=] no longer seem to have buttons on them.

UsefulNotes/FMTowns.

The game featured many technical improvements on [[ManiacMansion its predecessor]], including a storyline that takes Zak all the way around the world, and an interesting system whereby the various characters have adventures independent of each other (two of the playable characters are introduced as space adventurers on Mars, literally a world away from the bits with Zak).

On second thought, I'll let it slide, but it requires an explanation at the very least.

** The entire city of Miami, Florida is closed for repairs. This might be a reference to ''Film/NationalLampoonsVacation'', in which Clark Griswold explains a hypothetical situation in which the entire state of Florida is closed for repairs.
