In one of the few instances of one game making reference to a game by another company, every now and then when the Gargoyle above Erasmus's house asks "What is your Quest?" (obvious Monty Python joke) one of the answer choices is "I want to be a pirate!" This is, of course, a reference to The Secret of Monkey Island by Lucasarts. If you select it, the Gargoyle says "Boy, have you got the wrong game," sends you back down the mountain.
