"You know, they make it so you can't defeat Zurg unless you buy this book! It's extortion, that's what it is!"
—Rex, Toy Story 2
"What took a particularly annoying number of attempts was a bit towards the end where my sole instruction was to "take out the tank." But while the tank's weak spot was completely obvious — cause it was the bit behind intermittently closing armor plating — it didn't actually become a weak spot until I'd shot all the tank's wheels off. Oh yeah, obviously. Should've guessed that the wheels are where the enemy keeps all their magic monkey paws and four leaf clovers."
''"...Space Quest IV will give you hours of frustration unless you have this hintbook. Want to know how to get the dog into the hanging basket? Want to find out how to attach the melon? Buy this hintbook and it all becomes obvious."
Iolo: "Remind me again why we're doing any of this?"
Steve: "Obviously, to get the jawbone so that we can teleport to Monk Isle and get me a spellbook."
Iolo: "But there's no way you would have known that Erstam had any such thing, or that it could get you there. You just arbitrarily decided we'd go look for the Mad Mage!"
Nerd: Where am I suppose to go?
Kyle Justin: According to this book, you have to bomb the floor and a staircase appears.
Nerd: "Bomb the floor and a staircase appears." Yeah, that's really great. How the fuck would anyone figure that out!?
