Easter Egg Hunt (Easter Eggs for Mycroft)

What are some neat Easter Eggs that you feel should be included in Mycroft. An example would be:

“Mycroft, open the pod bay doors.”

Mycroft: “I’m sorry Dave, I can’t do that.”

What do you guys think? What are some fun Easter Eggs you can imagine?


Portal references! Because I know I’d like to add too many, I’ll make it some sort of add on if that’s fairly easy to do.

  • When you plug in Mycroft with the GLaDOS voice, it should say this
  • I don’t know when this would be appropriate, but this was my favorite line
  • Greeting. This then this
  • “Clap for me” This then this

Fun facts you can ask for:

Oh my I could find things on the wiki I’d like to see all day. Hopefully we could use a GLaDOS voice modulator instead.

Edit: Oracle turret, making lemons to blow life’s house down, etc.


“MyCroft what do you know about the end of the world?”

-It definitely wont be from killer robots.


"- Mycroft, what is the answer to life the universe and everything ?
"- 42!"

“- Mycroft, talk me about Life”
"- Life… Don’t talk to me about Life…"

“- Mycroft, How many languages do you speak ?”
"- I mastered six million forms of communication"


Mycroft definitively needs Star Trek references and quotes.
Something like:

“Mycroft, what’s the stardate?”

Three Laws of Robotics

A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Laws.


I’d like to see TARS references from Interstellar.

Humour, 65%

I hope it’s OK to bump an old thread, but I love easter eggs, and easter egg parity with siri, alexa, et al. is a matter of honor. I’m playing with mycroft core on xubuntu 16.04 and am delighted how many questions in this thread he can answer (except for "what’s the stardate)

Here’s an essential easter egg that mycroft still doesn’t know–

2016-07-12 23:57:47,092 - SpeechClient - INFO - Speak: Sorry, I couldn’t find an answer for how do you play rock paper scissors lizard spock. I’m searching for how do you play rock instead.

Here’s the answer, in the words of Dr. Sheldon Cooper:

Scissors cut paper
Paper covers rock
Rock crushes lizard
Lizard poisons Spock
Spock smashes scissors
Scissors decapitate lizard
Lizard eats paper
Paper disproves Spock
Spock vaporizes rock
And as it’s always been, Rock crushes scissors
