Things to Do At, Beyond and Below the Straight & Narrow: Penal Zone Did You Try List

Well, this was done for every chapter of ToMI, so why not Sam & Max: The Devil's Playhouse. I'm sure most of you have completed The Penal Zone, but there is probably much more in the game that you missed - more jokes, more lines of dialogue, more character actions and reactions that you failed to uncover throughout your first playthrough. However, we all have different minds and play the games differently to each other, so there's bound to be people out there who tried random combinations and wacky experiments and managed to find the things that you missed. Here are mine:

-Shoot at Skun-ka’pe while he’s standing, watching out of the front window of the ship
-Shoot at Skun-ka’pe when he’s getting sucked into the Penal Zone
-Read Sam’s thoughts twice
-Read Skun-ka’pe’s thoughts when he’s getting sucked into the Penal Zone
-Read the alien brain’s mind
-Use future vision on all possible options
-Look at textbooks twice
-Attempt to shoot Stinky
-Attempt to give the demon broth to Skun-ka’pe
-Use jumper cables with gaping hole
-Contemplate Puddin’head Lincoln twice
-Look at moleman construction worker twice
-Giving Momma Bosco back her power core
-Talk to Max while inside the moleman processing chamber
-Use your gun with the gorilla research assistant guarding the entrance to Bosco-Tech
-Use engagement ring with gorilla research assistant guarding the entrance to -Bosco-Tech
-Look at used pizza boxes twice
-Use cell phone with pigeon sitting on trash cans
-Use your gun with the research assistant gorilla guarding the pawshop
-Use the banana peel directly with the research assistant gorilla guarding the pawshop
-Use the banana peel with Max
-Use the banana peel with the manhole (not the manhole cover)
-Use the banana peel with the pizza boxes
-Try to enter the pawnshop a second time
-Talk to Sam while in the Penal Zone
-Attempt to use the Desoto after you escape the Penal Zone
-Use rift generator with Momma Bosco’s power supply
-Attempt to turn on rift generator before putting the homing device on Skun-ka’pe
-Shoot at Skun-ka’pe while he’s standing, watching out of the front window of the ship... again
-Shoot at Skun-ka’pe while he’s getting sucked into the Penal Zone... again
-Speak to Skun-ka’pe twice during the final scene
-Show Skun-ka’pe the paddle toy twice before turning up the heat on the boiler

There are probably much better ones out there than these, so if you found anything interesting, any bonuses throughout the episode, post them here so that we can all try them out on our next playthrough!

  • I was wondering if one of these would pop up. I only have one to add:

    -Attempt to enter the moleman processing chamber before picking up the teleportation artifact
  • Teleporting to Stinky's Cell phone when Max is being strangled at Momma Bosco's while Sam is just stood outside is vaguely funny.

    I guess the other teleport locations in this situation might also prove interesting.
  • Wasn't I supposed to get an extra psychic power?

    This. Do this. I haven't finished the game so I was only looking for this one. Do. This. One. I laughed tears.
  • I thought the remark at the baby-buggy in the subway was cool too :)
  • I don't know how exactly to trigger it, but apparently using the teleportation power excessively (I think I found it teleporting from where Stinky dropped her cell phone to Sybil's boxes on Straight St) results in a really trippy cutscene.
  • I got one

    -use the engagement ring with the monkey guarding moma bosco's.

    Already said, my friend.
  • I noticed nobody said - use engagement ring with Max; I laughed tears when I did that, it's absolutely hilarious! Only seems to work in the street outside Momma Bosco's lab though.

    Also, by using the jukebox in Stinky's diner you can hear the FRIENDLY DEMON SONG again (as well as all the other musical numbers from earlier episodes).

    I kept meaning to do that, and I kept forgetting. I'll see if I have a save where I still have the engagement ring.

    EDIT: HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
