->''"I've sailed the seas from Trinidad to Tortuga and I've never seen anything like it! The engagement ring I gave Elaine has a terrible pirate curse on it. [=LeChuck=] is behind it, I'm sure. I should have known that nothing good could come out of that evil zombie's treasures. And if that's not bad enough, the clairvoyant I met in the mangrove swamp told me that if I am to break the curse and save Elaine, [[TonightSomeoneDies I will have to die]]!"''\\

The third game in the ''VideoGame/MonkeyIsland'' series, ''The Curse of Monkey Island'' was released in 1997, six years after the previous installment, ''[[VideoGame/MonkeyIsland2LeChucksRevenge LeChuck's Revenge]]''. With two of the three fathers of the series, Creator/RonGilbert and Dave Grossman, no longer working for Creator/LucasArts, and the third, TimSchafer, being busy with [[VideoGame/GrimFandango other projects]], no one was really around to explain the infamous ambiguous ending of ''[=LeChuck's Revenge=]'', so the company decided to go with a CuckooNest interpretation of it.

* PoliticallyIncorrectHero: One of Guybrush's fake Griswold aliases is "Won Ton," which he explains by saying his "ancestors were from the Orient." The term "Orient" was already quite outdated and offensive in 1997 when the game was released, though obviously not in the 17th century when it takes place.

* BangBangBang: During the ship combat sections, the increasingly powerful cannons get louder; The basic starting cannons sound akin to a bottle being uncorked, while the Destructo-Matic T47 is hilariously and exaggeratedly loud.
