Nice nose!

I never thought I'd get the chance to ask this. :D

During Mount Rushmore, the game will occasionally say "nice nose!" as you're scaling. When does it do this? Is this completely at random, or when you complete the shots in a particular way, or what? Can any dev shed a light on this?

I know, not exactly an issue of earth-shattering importance, but it's been bugging me for years.

The other exploration modes have small easter eggs like this too (like when the announcer says "that was too close!") but those are more obviously tied to conditions.

I think it's when you are face to face with the statue head for a long time but I could be wrong. It's a long time since I heard it.

I think it happens when you hit the upper ramp before hitting the middle orbit (which normally sets you up for the upper ramp shot).That means pretty much going through the left orbit and bumpers.
I don't rmember if the lit left ramp has anything to do with it, but it might.

Well, it's terribly frustrating. I've started Rushmore God knows how many times since installing the Kickstarter version, and not once has the table said "nice nose" again. The order in which you complete the lanes doesn't seem to matter, neither does waiting out the timer. It may be a purely random thing that just happens to never hit on my new configuration. I guess I should just let it go. :)

And then of course it happens! Right ramp, left ramp (scoring a two-way), then right orbit, and then "nice nose!"

I know it doesn't happen on any two-way since I've done that many times before.

It only happens when you've made exactly two shots. Which two and the order don't matter. It's random.

Last night the ball came out of the bumpers and I did a perfect side ramp, left ramp, right ramp.... "nice nose".

I thought Penguinator was onto something until I read some of the other posts. Are we saying it's basically random but you have to make two shots to have a chance of hearing it?

Yes, that's exactly it. You have to make any two shots, then the quote can randomly play. It doesn't come any more after the third shot, since you're no longer hanging next to the nose. insx must have had the quote trigger at just the right time before the third shot registered.

Two shots in a combo or just two shots?
