I wonder, what are your favorite Narrator lines of all the Space Quest games? (doesn't count fan games) I know there is come pretty funny lines when you use the Tongue or Nose icon, but I wonder what is the funniest joke that the Narrator said in the games, of your point of view.

Good topic, man. :)

 

Hoo boy, there are a lot ...

 

Off the top of my head, the one that springs to mind is, for some reason, "The change machine looks more like a time machine than a time machine looks like a time machine (for a change!)"

 

But, oh, there are so, so many good ones ...

I got Nonookie but I pronounced Nontoonyt as (noon-toon-yit) until it was pronounced for me. As for lines from Space Quest, one of my favorites was "Due to the unyielding nature of solid ground, especially when struck from 50 meters, you now bear the dimensions of a manhole cover."

This topic needs bumping. And I'm just the stubborn, never-leave-well-enough-alone guy to make that happen! B)

 

If I had to pick one line from the aether that perfectly encapsulates the smart-assed nature of The Narrator in a single paragraph, it's this one, one of my favorites from SQ4:

 

"Hmm, that's odd...this pipe tastes strangely like blood. ...oh, wait, that *is* blood. You've shredded your tongue. Your mother should have warned you about licking strange areas..."

That... that line... it makes me laugh every time that I listen to the Space Quest IV's RESOURCE.AUD :) . I forgot to post it here. It's so representating of Roger's intelligence. If Mark Crowe and Scott Murphy would have created a character with a little less IQ, the protagonist of Space Quest would be a plant.

Akril did some pretty funny videos on YouTube with her favorite narrator lines from Space Quest 6. For one reason or another, I can't post the link here. Here is one line that I find really funny for some reason (even better when you hear Gary Owens saying it) :

 

"These hermetically-sealed components house the Ascend-O-Pad's Direction Correction connections, the Quark Torque fork, and the Ascension-Descension Suspension Tension extensions."

 

I had to bring this thread back. I have so many other posting ideas.
