Monkey Island 2: LeChuck's Revenge

by Clavius

Part 18: The Library

Well, you heard the poster...

It's time to pay a visit the thrilling world of municipal libraries!

I am going to read so many goddamn books.

They are gonna be in a world of hurt when i'm done turning these pages.

Oh you want it like that do you?

I am going to say so many goddamn words.

Bad idea.

Oh forget it...

Aha, I wonder what wonderful treasures this card catalog has in store for me.

I can feel the learning enriching my very soul.

Soon I will channel it into something productive.

Like senseless violence and thievery!

Hmm, "Kleptomania", I'll have to remember that.

Ooh, I don't know what this "Monkey 2" is, but it sounds intriguing.

Hmm, "Hal Barwood on Monkey 2", I'll have to remember that.

Hmm, "Collectabe Toy Trucks", I'll have to remember that.

Well, I have been looking for a leader to unquestioningly follow lately...

Ah, my masterpiece.

Hmm, "The Little Organ That Could", I'll have to remember that.

Pardon me, Miss. I'm looking for a book.

Do you have a library card?

But you DO have one?

Well... No.

Well, would you like one?

Yes, what do I have to do?

I'll need some personal information. Name?

Herman Toothrot.


221B Baker Street.


Ninet --uh--, Twenty One.




Murder, arson, thievery, that sort of thing.

I see. Alright, your library card will be mailed to the address you gave me. In the meantime, take this temporary card.


What book are you looking for?

Let's get this party started by indulging in my manchild fascination with childrens toys!

Could you find "Collectible Toy Trucks".

That looks like fun!

When I grow up, I want to be a librarian.

Okay, here you go.

Wait, why did I check this out again...

Thankyou. Anything else?

Do you have "The little organ that could"?

Here you go. Anything else?

I'd like "Kleptomania".

Okay, here you go. Anything else?

I need "Hal Barwood on Monkey 2".

Okay here you go. That's your limit. If you want to check out more books, you'll need to give some back.

That rings a bell with... something...

But I can't quite put my finger on it...

Oh how cute!

What the hell is this anyway?

Hey, there's something folded up in here...


Damn, all this high class learning is tiring.

Just take it, and the rest of these crappy books. Except the Kleptomania one, I feel a special bond with that particular book for some reason...


Back to the drawing board.

Shipwrecks, eh, I need that figurehead from the Mad Monkey.

Hmm, "Great Shipwrecks of our century", I'll have to remember that.

Hmm, "The Joy of Hex", I'll have to remember that.

Hmm, "Famous Pirate Quotations", I'll have to remember that.

Oh what's this?


This is just inefficient cataloguing.

How deep does the rabbit hole go?

Now you're just being silly.

What have I uncovered!?

I can't let it go...

What wonderful things lie at the end of this treasure map?

I must know!

Come on!

I don't have all day...

Okay that's a lie, I totally do.

For fucks sake!

I've lost the will to live...

We are through the looking glass people.


Wait, I know you! You're that first reference I didn't want!

I've had it with this card catalog.

Do you have "Famous Pirate Quotations"?

That book has been checked out by Governor Phatt.

I'd like "The Joy of Hex".

Okay, here you go.

Could you find "Great Shipwrecks of our Century".

Okay, here you go. That's your limit.

What a crappy library not having the book I want. I should break your shit.

There's a model lighthouse lens inside.


Alright you fat bastard, you and I need to have a little discussion about my quotations book!
