Original Soundtrack composed by: Michael Land, Barney Jones, Andy Newell and Patric Mundy
This music plays when you visit Stan's used ships lot - which is where you haggle to get the ship aptly known as the "Sea Monkey". One thing I loved about this scene is how it pretty much teaches you the art of haggling - which comes very useful if you ever want to visit South-East Asia. One of the things you might inadvertently do is tell Stan you're leaving but this is actually required in order to pressure Stan to make the sale. The tactic is also quite helpful in real life too, provided you're willing to risk the salesperson seeing through your bluff!
Also another thing that's hilarious about Stan is that you may notice the check pattern on Stan's jacket stays stationary, even whilst he's moving or flailing his arms. Apparently this would become a recurring visual gag, to the point where people not familiar with the joke thought it was a bug in Tales of Monkey Island
