    I don't think this one has been mentioned yet. I just noticed the golem in the Cannith Manufactury who guards the door to the Research Facility says "You have ten seconds to comply" and then "You have five seconds to comply," which are lines by ED-209 from Robocop.

    Icelandic. The only living language that does not use any form of family name, only patronymics (and, in some cases, matronymics). Icelandic phone books are organized by first name, patronym, and occupation.

    If you click on all the guests in Partycrashers, you get some interesting conversations. Over near the bar there's a guy attempting to convince his very drunk wife to just go home, a warforged on the upper level complaining about discrimination ("I'm sure your friends' invitations just got lost in the mail..."), a monk telling a House K representative that exploring Korromor is a bad idea, three girls arguing over wearing the same dress, and a lot more just party chatter. My favorite is an ironic elvish member of the Twelve, who mentions how he left House Phiarlan to escape the plotting, secrecy, and intrigue...

    Yes but given the fact that it's a barbarian hireling, that's clearly not the intent...

    In front of the shrine behind the underwater part (near the ramps with the lightning traps) are the remaining corpses of Livingstone and his party.

    I'm too lazy to check the whole thread.

    It just jumped at my face monday that one of the kobold in Reaver's Refuge is called Edlin.

    For those that never dealt with the prehistory of modern computing, edlin was the line editor included in MS-DOS.
    Basicaly it's more or less the MS-DOS version of my great friends ed and sed ( who are the line editors of the various *nix flavor ).

    I didn't see Stand Your Ground mentioned yet. You have to protect Maxwell Statler and his brother Rance. I always assumed it to be a reference to an old country music group (The Statler Brothers).

    The end boss in the Lord Of Stone quest is named Kudgel, and what he's carrying could be considered quite a large cudgel (another name for a club).
