Leisure Suit Larry 1: In the Land of the Lounge Lizards

  • When Larry buys the condom at the convenience store, the store manager yells out the choices you made for your "lubber", resulting in random people popping out from behind store shelves to mock you for it.
    Crowd: WHAT A PERVERT!
  • From the same scene, you can make a choice regarding the size. Only "Large", "Giant" and "Gonzo" are available, but no matter which one you pick, he'll always say "small-sized".

  • The censored sex scene with the hooker.
  • Larry's face when he calls the sex phone line, and gets called back.
  • Getting mugged in one of the many dark alleys invariably results in the mugger bailing halfway through the fight, leaving Larry to beat himself to death.
  • The theme song.
    Leisure Suit Larry, the leisure suit guy,
    Leisure Suit Larry, he’s gonna die,
    In several improbable ways that never happen in real life...
Leisure Suit Larry 2: Looking for Love (in Several Wrong Places)
  • Larry's face as he wins both the Dating Connection and the lottery.
    • The Dating Connection especially so, since he only wins because Barbara ends one of her sentences with "too", which the MC interprets as "number two", which is Larry. Sorry Barbara, no backsies.
  • Failing to escape the cruise ship will result in Barbara's mother accidentally suffocating Larry when she tries to have sex with him.
  • Advertisement:
  • The KGB agents' reaction to Larry once wearing a swimsuit, shaved, with shoulder length blonde hair, and padding.
  • At the very end, Larry barges into Dr. Nonookee's Volcano Lair and triggers the security system, which ends up killing him.
  • Larry trying to pick up a Spanish chick with whatever little knowledge of Spanish he has, and ends up saying perfectly the code phrases used by two spies, thus kickstarting the whole plot.
    • The sheer Spanish gibberish in the sentences, for which a comfort translation is provided.
    • The fact that the actual spy supposed to get the onklunk was a perfect Larry lookalike.
Leisure Suit Larry 3: Passionate Patti in Pursuit of the Pulsating PectoralsLeisure Suit Larry 5: Passionate Patti Does a Little Undercover Work
  • Larry working out with Chi Chi Lambada, and miserably failing.
  • Larry's face when Michelle... *ahem*, "downloads to his hard disk".
  • The dream sequences for everyone involved.
  • Larry landing a plane using Flight Simulator knowledge. A Moment of Awesome since he actually succeeds.
  • Larry commenting that these idiots designed an airport runway 100 feet long... and TWO MILES wide!
  • The dinner with The Reveal that Julius Bigg is the reason why LSL 4 was never released, and his Serious Business reaction.
  • The wrap-up ending as a whole, which manages to be half this, and half Bittersweet Ending / "Shaggy Dog" Story.
Leisure Suit Larry 6: Shape Up or Slip Out!
  • Larry's dreadful performance on Stallions, which causes the narrator to fast-forward through the more embarrassing moments.
  • When finding a pair of designer sunglasses by the pool, Larry asks "Anybody lose these?" in the quietest voice possible before claiming them for himself.
  • After Larry's... "high colonic treatment", we get this exchange.
    Larry: You know, I don't feel pooped anymore.
    Rose: Si, and also you are not so full of shit.
  • Larry's unenthusiastic "woof"s during his "playtime" with Thunderbird.
  • Larry's attempt at masturbating in his glass-paned bathroom, which causes a crowd of onlookers to stare at him. This naturally causes a game over.
  • Unzipping your pants in front of Gary the towel attendant will cause Larry to "die" via Gay Option.
Leisure Suit Larry 7: Love for Sail!
  • As Peter Purser finishes up explaining the rules for the Thygh's Man Trophy contest:
    Peter: ...are there any questions?
    Crowd: Are there any answers?
    Peter: *annoyed* You may begin.
  • When opting to seduce Peggy.
    Narrator: *flatly* Larry, a penis is a terrible thing to waste.
  • Even attempting to use a pick up line makes it clear Larry DOESN'T want her.
    Larry: *thinking* Nooooooooooo...
  • Attempting to "look" at Peggy's chest will cause Neil Ross (the narrator) to break character and refuse to read the intended line, calling out Al (who can be heard laughing in the background) and claiming he has "standards".
    Neil: I can't read that! Al, what are you asking me to do here? I can't-
    Al: (cracking up) You gotta read it! Come on!
    Neil: I have standards!
    Al: Standards? If you had standards, you wouldn't be here!
    Neil: I'm a professional spokesperson. I happen to be the voice of the Allied Car Dealers of Banning!
  • When Larry asks Drew about Anton Fokker, the screen (a closeup shot of Drew from Larry's POV) slowly scrolls down while she talks. It isn't until she's done talking when she notices and calls you out. Unlocking an Easter Egg lets you see the goods without interruption.
  • Farting around long enough (or looking for the last remaining Dildos) after you've won the contest will result in this friendly little reminder from the ship's announcer.
  • After winning the contest and meeting Captain Thygh, she refuses to participate as she's filled with ennui, but Larry is obviously confused as to what she means. The narrator then gives the definition of ennui (boredom), explains the word's origins, and uses it in a sentence. Larry isn't the only one who hears him.
    Captain Thygh: Who the hell is THAT?
    Larry: I don't know. But I hear him all the time!
  • Larry accidentally, unknowingly killing Mr. Boning, derailing his wife's plan to get away with murder, and blackmailing her to the tune of half a million dollars. The One Dialogue, Two Conversations he and Annette have about the above is priceless.
Leisure Suit Larry: Magna Cum Laude
  • "Lesbian Nights" — a parody of "Summer Nights" from Grease where Larry and Ione sing the story of their date from earlier in the game and how it traumatized her into out-and-out lesbianism.
  • Earlier, when Ione starts chewing Larry out for what he did, he attempts to deflect her criticism by blurting out "I'm gay!" We then get an I Knew It! reaction...from Larry's own crotch.
  • One of Barbara Jo's conversations where Larry uses puppets to try and calm Barbara down, especially if you get some of the wrong options.
  • When Larry Lovage and Morgan plays some unspecified Tabletop Roleplaying Game (although It's obviously intended to be D&D, given the sheet design shown) Larry's solution to saving a princess from becoming a virgin sacrifice is to make sure she's no longer a virgin.
  • Flirting with lesbians in a gay bar leads to one of the best rejection lines in the whole game.
    Lesbian: Let's get one thing straight - I'm not.

Wet Dreams Don't Dry

  • Larry is blackmailed by a phone. Which, because of his temporal displacement, he refers to as a "shiny box".


How well does it match the trope?
