Default Easter Eggs

Found any so far? I've found one that was pretty funny. The devs are apparently fans of Quentin Tarantino.

2 guards randomly talking in the baron's castle at Crow's Perch in Velen.

Guard 1: "Let's go get the gimp"
Guard 2: "I think he's sleeping"
Guard 1: "Then I guess we better wake him up"

I was back in that area last night right were you are talking about as I thought it was odd and looked around for a hidden door I might have missed before.

Book titled "Last Wish" in the Imperial Castle authored by Dandylion with his (very subjective) take on the story

Heard a villager saying "War, war never changes" to which his wife pipes up with "You never change you lazy git sitting on your arse all day long" or something along those lines.

A smith in a village in Velen just told me about a legendary master weapons smith in Novigrad named Hattori. It's a reference to the sword maker Hattori Hanzō in Kill Bill.

I've come across loads of easter eggs, though I don't remember most of them (I should've written them down). I do remember a few though:
- Hansel and Gretel is mentioned many times.
- The top fist fighting champion of Novigrad is called.. Durden the Tailor, clearly a reference to Tyler Durden.
- There's a Gwent card of an archer with the quote "I always aim for the knee", probably a reference to Skyrim (the famous "took an arrow to the knee").
- There are several Bioware references, such as swords called Morag and similar.

I seem to hear prostitutes go something along the lines of "I'm a material girl, in a material world". Madonna song reference.

Is it me or are all these easter egg references becoming a bit too distracting. I mean, I can handle a few, but there seem to be very many. Going overboard with them just takes me out of the game world.

Yep, I've heard that as well. Definitely a Madonna reference.

I agree. It's fun here and there, but when they're popping up every other quest it's a bit much.

There were a crapload of Lord of the Rings references in TW2. To the point where they did kinda became distracting.

Any of those in TW3?

Distracting? You must be crazy.

Anyone found Gottfried’s Omni-opening Grimore? You did? Why didn't you read it?
No it's not Cleve's Grimoire eegg.

The Witcher novels are full of stuff like that. Something is either a perverted popular tales or a pop-culture references. Geralt even got the moniker The Butcher of Blaviken for killing "Snow White" and her seven dwarves gnomes (she wasn't a nice person).

Another one: Djenge Frett, the best bounty hunter in the world. I assume it's a reference to Jango Fett, one of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy (Star Wars).

I could do without these references, but at least I haven't personally encountered too many of them.

It was that kind of thing that ultimately ruined my interest in WoW lore.

I just found a pair of silver pantaloons. I wonder if there are gold and bronze as well.

It could just be a coincidence, but I'd like to think it's a nod to Baldur's Gate.

Probably. There are quite a few references to BioWare items and characters.

I haven't seen Kill Bill, but Hattori Hanzō was actually a famous samurai in Japanese history.

In Novigrod I heard a poor beggar complaining of his livelihood being taken away when someone cured his leprosy.

This is from Monty Python's Life of Brian.

Not an Easter Egg as such but the song Johnny sings to calm Gran is a very well known Polish lullaby. English translation isn't great and it took me a while to recognise it for what it was. In my next playthrough I will be using Polish dialogues.
