0A = Phil

Unused Sounds


Audio Subtitle Usage
Grandpa: Sorry scout, there are no saved games here! Remnant of a cut save feature.
Grandpa: Which game do you want to continue? Another remnant of a cut save feature.
Stu: Oh no! And I already made my first $19.95 payment! I wonder if those statues come with a warranty. Meant for the ending of Angelica's Temple of Gloom, but doesn't play.
Lil: Yaaaay! *giggling* Meant for the ending of Angelica's Temple of Gloom, but for some reason it plays Chuckie saying the line instead.
