So I figured every bioware game has these, so we should compile them. Spoilers are all over this so if you don't mind missing out on some plot details, please post what you find.


The first I found was one of the letters I got at the end of Act I. I read the first line and knew exactly what it was. The letter describes a royal figure from another country wanting to transfer his funds and how he needs your treasury to hold all of his money. Yes, it's a play on the scam usually seen in emails but more importanly it was last seen as one of the messages Commander Shepard receives in Mass Effect 2 (just add aliens).
Seeing Sandal back from DA 1 was good for a laugh. But having him in the Deep Roads freeze an Ogre and then say it was "Not Enchantment!" had me LOL.

There is a guy in the hanging man (talkative man) who often breaks the 4th wall (comments about how he feels like he is character, and that the world seems simpler now)

a couple I heard about but have yet to see:

If you look out one of the windows in your mansion you get a reference to the ugly naked guy from friends.

when Isabella is offered a ship by a desire demon she says "what can I say? I like big boats and I cannot lie" a reference to the song baby got back.

You also get a letter advertising male enhancement....just like ME2. Is your soldier not standing at attention? Flag flying at half mast? I was very disappointed to see that I could not follow up on the letter. :D :D :D

My favorite is between Varric, Isabela, and Aveline

Varric: I'm telling you, the one I have is THIS big.
Isabela: You're lying. I have held hundreds of those in my hands and none have ever been that size!
Varric: Hey, would I lie about something this critical?
Aveline: (Asks what they are talking about.)
Isabela: Daggers, of course. Why? What did you think we were talking about?

Isabella: "Hello ... in there. Can I ... speak to Anders?"
Anders: "You don't have to do that, you know. I'm right here."
Isabella: "Oh. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't talking to that stick in the mud."
Anders: "So what is it? You wanted to talk to me?"
Isabella: "No, not really."

I paraphrased the convo I know but I was laughing through most of it and missed some of the details.

Isabela has the best conversations.

So far my favorite one was between her and Bethany. I don't remember the whole conversation but it starts out with Bethany asking about a book Isabela has called "Andraste and the maker's spear" with bethany saying that he never had a spear, and Isabela getting her to read a passage from the book. And yes, the spear is a euphemism.

At the very start of the deep roads expedition two expedition hirelings are talking about how sandal went missing and one of them says:

"I heard if you wander around in the dark you will get eaten by a Grue"

A reference to the Zork games :)

I suspected this might happen after one of my playthroughs and the ending where you ditch Alistair and it says he goes off and turns into a drunk. Cool that they actually follow through with it.

It was cool seeing Zevran and Leliana. I'm wondering if Leliana will still be there in my next playthrough (going to play with my other completed save, where she was the love interest of the hero who died instead of them just being friends)...

I haven't experienced it myself buy a friend of mine said that in The Rose(the brothel) he spoke to a dwarf and he said;

"So, you wanna explore the Deep Roads ?"

This had me laughing.

I had a very strange conversation come up when I went out with Merill, Isabella and Anders.

The set up for it was that I had shagged Isabella, then turned Anders down in the bedroom at the last minute before finally romancing Merill and asking her to move in.

The whole gist of the conversation centred around Anders being pissed at me, and how I wouldn't be happy with Merill. Throughout the conversation it turned out I was still seeing Isabella, and that Merill knew about it and was fine with the whole thing. Anders was still pissed.


There was also an earlier conversation again with Isabella where she engaged in some girly chat about how my manly warrior Hawke goes all night long. Very amusing.

I agree with Isabella's convo's being the best. Her constant attempts at corrupting Bethany are hilarious. Also the fact she calls Aveline Lady man hands.

I never got Zevran to appear in my game :(, although Isabella did mention what a good lover he was, Anoura never showed up either, although I had drunk Alastair

I've heard the talkative man in The Hanged Man also say "I wish the person telling this story would make me more attractive" or something along those lines.
I also laughed when I found a belt called Seven Deadly Cinch (seven deadly sins).
Merrill's reaction to Aveline's "date" was also quite amusing but that was days ago and I can't remember what was said.

I don't know if anyone mentioned this or not but I found a pretty awesome item:

Zoey's Boots of Horde Kicking

Yeah, a reference to Zoey from Left 4 Dead and the horde of zombies she fights. I about flipped when I saw that (easily my favorite game). It was in one of the Deep Roads missions in Act II (I think).

Alistair did show up for me but in Act 3 as the king and said Meredith took his man hood after she chewed him out and left.

then anders asks him if he used to be a grey warden and he says "that's the rumor" then he stops and looks at anders and says "were you?" and anders says "that's the rumor"

During Fenris' companion quest in the hanged man bar, if you select the "draw your weapon" option, you'll shout "It's a trap" -- a reference to Admiral Ackbar in Star Wars

The Talkative man will randomly say "The truth is out there" -- a reference to The X-Files

Ha. I liked that one as well.Varric asks if Merrill does a lot of frolicking and singing in the woods. Merrill responds "Of course we do. We're elves." But then goes onto add that they don't do it a lot because it makes the trees jealous.

Edit:

LMFAO
So I was just playing and I visited the Bone Pit with my party.
Isabella: "There was a brothel on the other side of the city called the 'Bone Pit'. It was ... entirely different from this."

I haven't gotten very far but so far I've been laughing my ass off. One of my favs was a three-way conversation between Anders, Isabella and Varric. Isabella seems to be able to get anyone to talk about sex...it's hilarious!

Paraphrasing a fair bit, was a few days ago:
Isabella & Anders talking about people they "know", guess they hang around the same swingers groups.

Isabella: oh right! Are you that mage that does the "electricity" thing?
Anders: yup that's me
Varric: I don't think I want to know this about you two
Isabella: (not voiced, only came up as a subtitle): okay we can't talk like this around Mr. He Who Never Has Sex

03-16-2011, 08:27 PM
If you talk to Aveline in the Hanged Man she describes it as "a hive of scum and villainy" which is almost verbatim how Obi-Wan describes the bar in Mos Eisley (he starts with wretched). Maybe I'm reading too much into it but Bioware's been pretty sly before and it makes me happy to think that's what it is.
Just thought of another one, at the start of "Fools Rush In" Varric responds to Isabella saying "That's right up there with 'I've got a bad feeling about this'." Which is a Han quote. I'll be keeping an eye out for more.

MADasaHatter
03-16-2011, 10:11 PM
How is this for Bioware being self aware?

Talkative Man: "I have this weird feeling that everything is getting simpler. Everything from eating to fighting is just easier to do."

I can't remember this conversation with Isabela that well, but Aveline tells her how confident she is in herself now and Isabela says, "What if I called you a manly man in a woman's body?" and Aveline says, "I'd call you a whore." and then Isabela responds with, "That's my girl!"

Also
Sandal - "Can I have some Salamanders please?"
Bodahn - "Don't do it! That's where the 'boom' comes from, I think!"

EDIT: Just remembered when you first meet Isabela she mentions she had sex with the Hero of Fereldan (Warden from DA:O). I thought this was hilarious because Hawke is related to the Human Mage Warden from Origins, so in closing Isabela has sex with you and your cousin. Then later in the game if you bring Isabela to the mission that Zevran appears in the Isabela will offer to have sex with Zevran and you can choose to say that you want in on the action. So, both Zevran and Isabela have been involved in an orgy with both protagonists, who in my case, happen to be cousins.

bakeryfreshgame
03-17-2011, 04:20 AM
How do you know they are cousins? I don't remember hearing that conversation.

On a topical note, I just walked by the Hanged Man with Isabella and she said "Sometimes you want to go where everybody knows your name." A reference to "Cheers" for those not old enough to remember

If you talk to the Merchant on the Wounded Coast he says "Knowing is half the battle." Among other things.

Your mother's maiden name is Amell. The human mage warden's last name is Amell. While talking to your mother in the beginning of the game, she talks about her side of the family and mentions the Hero of Fereldan is related to them, and I believe she says cousin. This talk leads to getting the quest where you have to recover your grandfather's will from the Amell family estate basement.

Heard this one a couple times while playing yesterday:


Merrill: You could get another cat, you know. There's one in the Lowtown market with a litter of kittens ready to wean.
Anders: You don't pay attention to templars, Qunari or politics, but you notice kittens?
Merrill: Templars, Qunari and politics don't meow and attack your feet when you're buying food.
Anders: Are there any tabbies? I'd like a tabby.

Fenris: ughaaa!

LOL basically Isabella and Fenris got it on, shame you can't see a cut scene for it.

Isabella: How do you and your husband make the bedroom department more exciting?
Aveline: That is none of your business!......but it is lacking somewhat.
Isabella: Try sticking your thumb up there, he will love it.
Aveline: I think I might be sick.

So many great lines from Isabella :)

Isabella has some of the best, especially with Aveline in the party. One I remember when she is talking about her and Donnic in the bedroom is, "Has he ever bent you ass over tits, and hammered you like a bent nail?" hahahaha

after you hook up Donnic with Aveline Isabella start making a ton of sexual innuendos: did he kadis you kate? ,curl your toes?, pudding your peach?, dampen your divine?, explore your deep roads? ............. really enjoyed that one

Accidently clicking on Izzy after a battle, and she said - "Wanna lay face down in a ditch? I could recommend a great place"

or something of that nature.. took me a few seconds to catch on .. i originally thought "Why is she really mean all of a sudden.. no wait .. she's being really nice!" LOL

and something that shocked me cuz it only happened once.. my main party was Anders, Merril and Izzy.. they had a 3 way convo .. where Anders kinda "Pulled an Alistair" if you will.. where he went all childish and asked Merril who i was "In Love With" but had slept with Izzy.. something like

Anders: She's like a side dish she comes with the meal.
Izzy: Aslong as it's a good meal.

Merril also said things to set up that line but i can't remember.

I know, me and Zevran Eiffel-Towered her in Origins twice before I figured out how to drag Leliana into it. I just thought it was funny that it just came out of the blue.
Zevran - "Thank you for your assistance. I'll be going now."
Isabela - "What about sex?"
Me - "What about me?"
Zevran - "The more the merrier!"

The last line is something along the lines of Aveline asking Isabella what she's trying to accomplish and Isabella tells her, "If I get you to stick your thumb up his ass, I win." Then Anders says he thinks he's going to throw up.

Another good line is when visiting Uncle Gamlen in Act III. In the background he'll say something along the lines of "I hear you've been getting inside that pirate slut from the Hanged Man. I tried but she always turned me down."

But anyway, I kept getting more and more of the best service. And then a new option pops up for the Mistress that says "Surprise me!". You end up in this room talking to a guy and the last thing he says is

I hate to say it, but there is a bit too much sexual inuendo in this game. It's gone from being a mature game, to an immature distraction. A few jokes from a few select characters who's personality dictate that kind of comment is one thing. Everyone and their mother making sexual inuendo however, it way too far over the top and just reinforces the stereotype of nerdy game developers who never get any and watch japanese tenticle porn while they code and jerk off to Sailor Moon or one of those queer cartoons.

On that note-I have a romantic relationship with Merrill and a female Rogue. I had her in my party when we were on a mission to bring in some mages. We were in the hanging man talking to one of them and he hit on my character. Merrill told the guy his tongue wasn't raspy enough and he's wasting his time.
