The manatee tongue???

Hi,

I can't remember being this stuck since it took a 10 hours (!) to finish the puzzle in CMI where you had to burn off the map from the sunbathing pirate.

Does anyone know how to get the tongue? I've been everywhere i can go but can't seem to find anything to click that I havent clacked already.

Thanks!

Oh no spoilers please just hints

    Do you know where it is?
    Have you been everywhere underwater?

    With what?

    I can't find that tongue. :( It doesn't seem to be inside the manatee or underwater. :(

    EDIT: Never mind. Got it. :)

    Well, first you need the pirates to actually tell you where it is...

    Umm...
    the tounge is the drinking goblet/horn-thingy Moose used, and it might not be where he left it, but instead in another place within the stomach.

    How exactly would that be done? I've tried everything and still can't figure it out.
  • edited September 2009
    Well, Moose is pretty much linked to Murr...uh Santino...so whatever happens to Santino, he'll react to that. ;)

    But I have no idea how I'm supposed to learn it's language without being on Floatsome - just talking to the manatee doesn't do the trick. :(
  • edited September 2009
    Well, I've already "taken care" of Santino, but unless I've missed something, the only option I have with Moose when talking to him is "I'll talk to you later".
  • edited September 2009
    If that's the only option, you might want to take a long walk off a short plank. ;)

    I'm starting to think maybe I have a glitch. >_>

    OK, I've been stuck for 2 hours trying to find that tongue, where is it? I've searched underwater and inside the manatee, does it require breaking Moose?

    Please tell me how you got the tongue.
  • edited September 2009
    The tongue only becomes available once you are told by decava's old crew, where to find it. There's no point in looking otherwise. Once they tell you it will be right there as they said.

    OK then how do you get Moose to spill the beans?

    Never mind..............

    Moose is pretty empowered having his buddy Santino by his side. But what if Santino wasn't there. ;)

    Yeah I dealt with Moose but now can't reach the tongue. Bongos don't keep the bile up.

    See if you have anything in your inventory that will beat the drums for you.

    I would have NEVER thought of that, thanks.

    I took murry out of the picture but I have no speech options with moose. I tried scaring the dorky guy by copying the nun's face but it didn't work, am I missing something?

    I learned to speak manatee, and have looked through the stomach and can't find anything.
  • edited September 2009
    If copying the nuns face didn't work after taking out murray then you are doing it wrong. Look at the picture of the nun again. The direction of the eyes here may be misleading.

    How do you get rid of Murray?
  • edited September 2009
    What's this nuns face people are talking about? I'm stuck on Noogie and I never came across an image of a nun.

    Hint please?

    Look through the captains chest up at the stearing wheel
  • edited September 2009
    btw, is you supposed to be eaten by the manatee? how?
  • edited September 2009
    Do you have something Manatees like to eat that you could offer up?
  • edited September 2009
    get my brain back to flotsam? learning manatee... hints have the tongue already but i cant understand the language
  • edited September 2009
    Have you had a good look around the top deck where Decava is? Maybe something there could help you get back to Flotsam to learn Manatee.

    Here's a set of clues. #1 is the least obvious, moving on upwards to the full answer.

    1.
    You've seen a mind travel to another body before. Remember?

    2.
    Look more closely. See something that might say which way the spell goes?

    3.
    You have to turn the arrow around. How can do you that?

    4.
    Have you searched the ocean floor meticulously enough?

    5.
    You have a wrench. Use it to turn the arrow around.

    6.
    The spell seems to have something to do with the pictures in the locket.

    7.
    You need to get to Flotsam without setting foot on flotsam.

    8.
    Do you have anything that might fit in the slot?

    9.
    Put the picture of Guybrush in the square slot. Press the button, and you're on Flotsam!

    5.

    When I use
    wrench on sign, he says 'no bolts to turn here'
    ? and I
    swapped
    the
    photo in the locket
    already. :confused:

    first zoom in on the locket, and use the wrench not on the locket but on the specific piece of the locket!

    Hi!
    I can't seem to find the manatee's tongue anywhere.
    Moose has told me that it is still in the manatees stomach and I have put the floppy fish on the bongos to raise the bile. But when I go to the pool of bile the manatee's tongue isn't there. Please help.

    Edit
    I have gone to the locket and learned how to understand and speak manatee so all I need is the tounge.

    EXACTLY the same problem.
    Moose told me where it is. I learned the language. I raised the bile.
    So wheres the tongue? Is it proposed to swim in the bile? Cause theres nothing swimming in that bile. Can somebody upload a screen of the location of that tounge. Hopefully its not a glitch/bug. Or iam 5h to stupid to locate and see this tounge.

    Plz help :(
    thats frustrating

    Its the same over here ... exactly the same. Sounds like a bug/glitch to me now, but still frustrating !
    The only thing i thought about is, that i raised the bile before i went down to it. Maybe you have to go down first, see the tongue in the bile and raise it after. but i dunno ... so help or a save file would be really appreciated.
