There´s a shitload of´em, though by now I don´t remember much specifics.
For me this was a part of the game´s special charm .
It doesn´t take itself seriously and it does so well in my opinion - I´ve never experienced such amount of good laughs in an RPG.
Another aspect of the game´s charm is its music. Which is dramatic and mostly serious.
Having this kind of music in a game with such a liberal use of humour often brings immediate contrasts of tones, which I´ve found rather unique and, eh, postmodern, in a good way.
One exemplary moment that came to mind is the loony dude in the beginning of Sentinel Island who has some fun dialogue and among other things whips up The Beatles reference ("I´m the walrus") … meanwhile a heroic/majestic track plays in the background. ´Tis art!
(for the reference, the first 90 secs, or so, in this video - spoiler for the beginning of Sentinel Island obvs)
