  • I did notice that Sam ended up returning the screwdriver to himself. Only took him 26 years, but he managed it.

    I like to assume that past Sam and Max took the elevator to 1980 and caused little Sam and Max not to go to the prom, causing present Max to stop liking girls.

    I think there is a mention of past Sam and Max travelling through time on their own, unplayable adventures.

    Sam: Well, we might be heading for an inevitable death, but at least our past selves are still gallivanting through the timestream, carrying on our legacy.
    Max: All the more reason to escape, Sam. So we can hunt down those accursed clones and destroy them!

    That's when you talk to Max in the smaller room after the ship begins to self destruct. I think.

    I wish people would stop saying that. It's like telling someone that video games are a pointless waste of time and not to play them because you're not personally interested in games. No one's getting upset about this stuff. At least I hope they're not.

    In fact, when I put that phrase, I tried to do it in a interrogation form, like asking if I was the only one =P. But I was in a hurry...

    Indubitably.
    No, I didn't HATE the game. It just happens to be my least favorite out of most of the adventure games I've played.
    ;)

    Ooooooohhhhh... that's perfectly alright then!

    I can't tell if that was sarcasm, or if you were being serious. Teehee!

    In resume, I think, in someplace in the future (Or even since 102) there's 2 Sam & Max, and one of them we don't play with them, had a Time Machine AND a screwdriver (OF EVIL!)

    I'm the only one who notice that. I'm overthinking everything again as usual?

    Now you made ME overthink this too, thanks a lot ! ;)
    Anyway, the logic is not there.

    For all the puzzles, the "self-contained time-line" concept of time travel is used.
    If you go back in time and change something, you notice the effects of the change when you come back.
    There is only one time line that is consistent with itself.

    For the Sam & Max swap at the Idol contest event, the "alternative universe" concept of time travel is used. Since the swap did not actually happen in the S1 episode, it means that the S2 Sam and Max went back in time to an alternative universe.

    Since the 2 concepts of time travel can not both be right at the same time, logic goes out of the window. There is no way of telling what happened to the Sam and Max that escaped the spaceship by time machine before the crash, because the whole thing doesn't make scene either way.

  • Whoa, bump. Anyway, isn't it possible that they did change the past and what we saw when playing the original episode (and every episode up to 203) was merely the original not-yet-changed timeline? That leaves some weird loose ends, sure, but nothing impossible. The most convenient part about it is that because of the way the time machine works the playable Sam & Max retain all and only their memories of the original timeline (just like Boscow keeping his memories of being himself, instead of remembering having been a cow all his life).
