As you work deeper underground below the Monkey Head in Return to Monkey Island, you'll have to beat several puzzles before you can find LeChuck. Each time, he will close a door you need to unlock to progress. The first three times this happens, you must manipulate objects across three rooms containing a monkey statue. There is a note on each closed door, giving you a hint.
