I've played the MI games since I was little, but one thing I never understood was why using Jojo the Monkey on a water pump would suffice for shutting it off. I remember that the only way I solved it was by saying, "Okay, this pump HAS to do something; I'm just gonna go down the list and use everything in my inventory."

Did I miss an in-joke, or a reference to something else, or... something?

Sure, it's obvious in hindsight.

I doubt that anybody ever got it first time through without just resorting to trial and error, or using a guide/hint.

Seriously?

The monkey was the first thing I tried it just seemed right. Lateral thinking. That said, it took me ages to figure out the gamblers club thing, so it wasn't as though I found everything easy.
