the illithid on guild airship mentions space hamster
it is clearly the reference to hero from Baldurs Gate 1 (forgot his name) that had a super space hamster
Most Warforged in House Cannith Enclave are named after variants of Polearms, a hint on upcoming weapons or simply a pun on this recurring player suggestion.

On Korthos, the Barbarian trainer is Drahcir Norac: reversed: Richard Caron= The Carpenters?
Also the Fighter trainer is Cire Rotnug. Reversed is Eric Guntor. Not sure of the reference here, but it sounds important.

In Dirks Got a Secret, the ooze hall "quivers, perhaps with anticipation," which I am betting is a riff (so to speak) on Rocky Horror Picture Show. The original quote is "shiver" but it is often misquoted as quiver.

In Partycrashers just after you have placed the espionage agent Cyan's name on the guest list she takes you to the bar to talk. She asks for a Dirty Kobold, "shaken not stirred".
In Cabal For One there is a hobgoblin named Olos Nobrac, which is carbon Solo backwards. I've always assumed that this is a reference to when Han Solo was frozen in carbonite.
One of the NPCs in the Chronoscope has the last name F'nord. Fnord is a word found in the Principia Discordia (Hail Eris!) and also the Illuminatus trillogy.
"Fnord is the typographic representation of disinformation or irrelevant information intending to misdirect."
That NPC was also present during the original event in which the tent was destroyed back in 2008. This makes me wonder if there is a secret agenda behind the devil invasion and the destruction of the marketplace tent. Conspiracy!!!!

there are many variations of the giant space hamster used in spelljammer. one of them, and yes, it actually is in the monstrous compendium entry (and yes, there actually is a monstrous compendium entry) is the miniature giant space hamster, which is what Minsc claims boo is (and truthfully, i can't say that i can conceive of a method of proving him wrong, and it wouldn't be the only spelljammer reference in baldur's gate, so it probably is in fact a genuine miniature giant space hamster and not just a cheap imitation).
the illithid are one of the main races in the spelljammer setting, having at one point had a large empire that spanned multiple spheres. an illithid from the spelljammer setting would almost definitely have had contact with tinker gnomes (another fairly common race in spelljammer), and quite likely as a result with their giant space hamsters as well (standard giant space hamsters are used to power certain gnomish spelljamming ships, by running in giant hamster wheels, naturally. you just have to hope that the gnomes don't "improve" the hamsters too much...)

U11 Crafting introduces Runestones (http://ddowiki.com/page/Runestone), not sure if these are a reference to Runescape, which uses Runes (which are stones) for casting magic spells.
Guild Augment Crystals are three different colors: Red, Blue, and Yellow. This is a direct in-game reference to Epic Crafting, in which Augment Crystals are of three colors.
