    Not sure if this have been discussed before, but Siri on the aTV 4 has a few movie related Easter eggs. I discovered yesterday she knows a number of classic quotes, and links to the movies when you say one. I tried a bunch, here are a couple:

    -Never Tell Me the Odds
    -May the Force Be with You
    -Hasta La Vista Baby
    -I'll Be Back
    -No Wire Hangers
    -We'll Always Have Paris
    -Show Me the Money
    -I Love the Smell of Napalm in the Morning
    -Open The Pod Bay Doors

    She seems to have trouble with longer quotes, but seems to like one-liners. I also discovered if you ask her her favorite animal, she suggest several famous movie animals, and one of the responses to asking her to tell you a riddle is a Hobbit quote. She also sometimes responds to 'I love you' with 'I know.'

    Any other aTV 4 Easter eggs?

    Interesting... Sounds like you're getting a lot of use out of Siri! Personally, I've wound up just using her to skip over opening credits and 'scenes from last week' -- easier than repeatedly pressing skip-ahead-10-seconds on the touchpad. A much appreciated shortcut during my recent binge-a-thon of all 3 seasons of the Danish series "Forbrydelsen" (excellent show) -- the episodes started after 2 minutes 30 seconds of whats-happened-so-far review. o_O

    For everything else, at least so far, the remote seems easier...

    I wonder if she knows that great Star Trek: Voyager quote:

    "Get the cheese to sickbay. The Doctor should look at it as soon as possible.”

    — B’Elanna Torres, “Learning Curve"

    (Sorry for geeking out, but it's become a go-to quote in our house.)

    Here's Johnny!
    A boys best friend is his mother
    If you build it he will come
    I see dead people
    I love lamp
    Go ahead make my day
    Why so serious?
    You had me at hello
    You're gonna need a bigger boat
    You talking to me?
    We're not in Kansas anymore
    Say hello to my little friend
    I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship
    Life is like a box of chocolates
    I'm going to make him an offer he can't refuse
