* HeyItsThatVoice:
** In the Special Edition, the Booty Island shopkeeper is [[KingdomHearts Lexeaus]], and Governor Phatt and Bart are [[VideoGame/TalesOfMonkeyIsland Winslow]].
** There's also Creator/JamesArnoldTaylor playing a few roles. (Largo [=LaGrande=], Mad Marty and the Phatt Island fisherman, the latter sounding very close to [[DrawnTogether Wooldoor]]).
** Apparently [[Creator/PhilLaMarr Hermes]] from ''WesternAnimation/{{Futurama}}'' traveled back in time, grew his dreads out and became a pirate ferry captain named Captain Dread.
* ShrugOfGod: Ron Gilbert has stalwartly refused to give a clear answer to what the meaning of the infamous ending was, the closest he has come to this was stating that one of the theories he has heard about the matter was "closer than the others -- but not much," without specifying which theory. The other only two people who might know the answer, Gilbert's co-writers, Dave Grossman and Creator/TimSchafer, also prefer to stay ambiguous when asked about the subject.
