  1. My daughter is upset with me that I didn’t mention the very best moment in Monkey Island 2: The time where you Nail the offensive salesman Stan into a coffin and leave him there. At least he stays there until Curse Of Monkey Island.

  2. Was just listening to this episode again today, and I completely agree: this is definitely one of my favorite episodes of the UMBcast!! =D
    And Father Beast is right, nailing Stan in the coffin was priceless!!! I still remember the first time we did that, my cousins, sister and I were just falling over ourselves laughing!

    • Yup! So many great memories. I guess it comes across when I REALLY love a game.

  3. Great episode! I am absolutely floored that you were able to talk about Monkey Island for an hour — and never mentioned Murray! ARRRRRRRRRGGH!
