The Present with Bernard
Let's get going with Bernard in the present now, shall we? We have to get rich quick to buy a Diamond to get the Chron-O-John going. So we
start by stealing all kind of stuff of course!
Get Bernard to the Main Hall
with the Cigar Salesman if you are not there already. Enter the swinging door
to the back and grab the decaf coffee
the normal coffee
Continue one door farther
to the right, open that pink cabinet
in the washing room and get the funnel
Get back to the Lobby and enter Dr. Fred's office
, the door between the back exit and the telephone. Pick up Dr. Fred's Swiss Bankbook
the desk, we don't need
anything more here at the moment, so leave again and enter the grandfather clock
into the lab
again. Dr. Fred
is so much on caffeine, you should really try
to give him the decaf coffee
. This is good for his heart and his body. But sadly he instantly falls asleep. But then again he starts to sleepwalk and
opens the safe with the contract in it. But he is so fast, there is no chance you can get the contract, you have to do something else, but this sets
it up already. Now leave the lab and take the stairs upstairs
Enter Dwayne's room
, the second door. He should be gone after you gave him the letter Hoagie found in the mailbox of the mansion in the past. We only need the disappearing ink
get it and leave again and enter the door on the right. This is Green Tentacle's room
. And he has some interesting stuff. Especially the videotape
of his stereo is interesting so take it with you. Leave Green and exit the hallway to the right.
In that small hallway enter the door on the right first. You meet Weird Ed Edison
again. He calms his nerves with his stamp collection. Let's just hope noone
angers him by destroying his precious collection... ah, well, just pour that disappearing Ink
over the collection
After Ed threw his whole collection into your face you can actually keep the stamp collection book
and a single stamp
. That stamp is more than 200
years old and still uncanceled. This could come in handy, so we keep it. If you want you can give Ed the rest of his stamp collection back, he
will be a lot more relaxed then. And that clever hamster
in Ed's room also looks handy, just take it with you, no matter what. At that point
in the game you could play the old Maniac Mansion on Ed's computer, but the solution for that game is somewhere else (last seen next to the chainsawfuel)... and ScummVM won't let you
do that yet...
Now enter the door opposite of Ed's room. Here Nurse Edna
does all the surveillance for the house. Everything is recorded on tape. So maybe recording Dr.
Fred will show us the combination to the safe or give some other clue. But sadly Nurse Edna won't let us take a look at that damned monitors, so
we have to get rid of her. Try kicking or pushing her just for some laughs and a good comeback from Edna...
But this doesn't help at all, so we have to fix this in the past already.
Move Hoagie to the exactly same room where Edna and Bernard are in the past and meet the Edison brothers Ned and Jed
. The only difference between the two is
that one is righthanded while the other one is lefthanded. And luckily we have a confusing left handed hammer on us we found in Red Edison's lab.
So just replace the normal right handed
with the left handed hammer
and watch everything crumble to dust. But this also affects the future of the past, which is the present. The statue
in Nurse Edna's surveillance chamber turns around, so we better see what this does in the present...
And now we can push Edna
down the stairs without any further interruption and can take a look at the monitors without interruption by her. Just smack that
you found in Green's room into the VCR
and start recording Dr. Fred in his sleep walking state. Just look at the monitor
and click the record button
We now have the combination on tape, Dr. Fred is gone now...
But nevermind, we'll take care of that soon enough. Just rewind
the tape, set the playback setting
in the bottom right corner to ep
and then watch
the damned thing.
So we have the combination, let's get cracking and open that safe
. We have the contract
but of course it is unsigned. And Dr. Fred is locked up in the attic
of the mansion. We better check that out.
Climb up to the roof
through the chimney and enter the window
on the right. Dr. Fred is tied up good, so let's ease it a bit for him and take the rope
around him with you. But you still cannot get that red wrapped Fred out of here. We need a replacement. Go out to the roof
and throw that rope
. Climb down all the way through the chimney
again and exit the lobby to the outside of the house
Dead Cousin Ted is patiently waiting here to be the ideal replacement for Dr. Fred's body upstairs. Grab the rope
and use it to tie it to Dead Cousin Ted
Then get upstairs
to Dr. Fred and pull on the rope
to get Ted up here already.
Dead Cousin Ted looks not really like Dr. Fred at them moment, so the IRS agent will call your bluff if you
just replace Dr. Fred with Ted in this white state. You better paint Dead Cousin Ted red
. In case you haven't sent over the paint, do so now, Hoagie has the red paint, then
just paint the mummy
and put it on the bed
and replace Dr. Fred
So Dr. Fred is partially rescued, let's hurt him some more while he is asleep. Tie the rope
to Dr. Fred
now (his hotspot is
a bit hidden behind the mummy) and pull him out by pulling the rope
from outside the window on the roof
Back in the lab
it's about time to kiss Dr. Fred and wake him up. But coffee is better than a kiss, so ram the funnel
down Dr. Fred
and pour the caffeinated coffee
into him. And there he is, Dr. Fred is awake and kicking. What about we ask Dr. Fred
to finally sign that contract
But he won't be that cooperative, so just quit
by choosing the last dialog option
and then use whatever you want to tell him to make him sign something
he doesn't even read... We have a signed contract but it is way too late to claim the royalties. If only we could send this letter out in the past...
Well, just use the age-old stamp
you got from Weird Ed with the signed contract
and send this to Hoagie
the mansion to the mailbox
. Guess what, put that letter
with stamp in the mailbox
and let the pony express get the letter.
This works out in the present too...
And we are rich now, let's spend that hard earned cash already on some crap we find on shopping television. Get upstairs
to the hallway and enter the first
room on the left
. Ignore that fat sleeping salesman for now and turn on the TV
. Good for us they sell a huge diamond on that TV show on Couch Potato
Shopping just now. So use
in that or Dwayne's room or Dr. Fred's office to call the show and order a huge diamond.
The delivery is right on time and Dr. Fred is more than happy to have a diamond at hand. That's it for the present, go save the world
in the other times now.
