Marc Cabot, Joel Richard, Richard Gray, and Andy McMullen.
Marc, Joel, Rich, and Andy talk about Easter eggs: those hidden gems in games, books, and movies.
“When life gives you lemons, don’t make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back! Get mad! I don’t want your damn lemons, what am I supposed to do with these? Demand to see life’s manager! Make life rue the day it thought it could give Cave Johnson lemons! Do you know who I am? I’m the man who’s gonna burn your house down! With the lemons! I’m gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that burns your house down!”
– Cave Johnson
What we talk about:
- World of Warcraft
To unlock the quest, called C-L-U-C-K, you simply need to type “/chicken” to any of the game’s chickens a lot. And by a lot, we mean, a lot. Somewhere around 60 times (hence the annoying other people part), the chicken will look at you quizzically, and you’ll be able to speak to it and receive the quest. Your next task is to buy the chicken a bag of special feed, “/cheer” at it, and then pick up your present: a pet chicken that will follow you to the ends of Azeroth. It’s actually quite simple, but it’s still not that widely known about, so you can easily get yourself a little treat that will amaze your friends and enemies alike.

- Portal 2 Radio
In certain areas in Portal 2, you can find small radios which, when picked up, play a series of tones. These tones, when rendered through SSTV decoding software produces images. Here is a video of one of those images being decoded:
- Portal Turrets Singing
In one of the test chambers, you can find a group of turrets “singing” in front of a larger turret.
- Portal 2 Ending Song
Here it is with the translations (Slightly different than we mentioned in the show)
- John Romero in Doom II
At the end of the game, you must shoot an opening in the large satan face’s forehead. However, if you turn on no clipping and walk through that opening, you will find John Romero’s head on a pike. This is what you were actually shooting. The strange voice you hear when you enter the room is actually a filtered John Romero saying, “To win this game, you must kill me, John Romero.” backwards
