From: The Secret of Monkey Island
Genre: Video Games
Who said it?: Guybrush Threepwood
The story behind the quote: This week’s quote comes from the classic PC Lucasfilm adventure game, The Secret of Monkey Island. The game has you controlling aspiring pirate, Guybrush Threepwood, as he tries to win the affections of governor Elaine Marley. The game is the first of the Monkey Island franchise.
The quote comes from the middle of the game. Guybrush Threepwood arrives at Monkey Island to look for a way to vanquish the ghost pirate LeChuck. One of the locations on the island features a large monkey head and, when you look at it, Guybrush delivers the quote.
Geek wisdom: There are going to be times when we just don’t have the full story. But does it really matter? Like in the game, we never do get to know what is the biggest monkey head Guybrush ever saw. It doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things but some gamers are curious as to what the answer is. But, like I said, it really shouldn’t matter.
