Overwatch voice actor Matt Mercer hilariously said “High Noon” during an interview when he responded where fans could follow his current work. He responded:
“You can find it on Twitch every Thursday night at 7PM pacific time at Twitch.TV/geekandsundry — so you go and check that out and see if it is a different time zone, you can go check ahead and watch it at… HIGH NOON!”
Everyone in the studio laughed in amazement as he pulled that one. Thanks to jigantie1 for that find.
Awesome Overwatch Easter Egg. However, it is the other way around. Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. used Overwatch quotes. Reddit member CherryTF put together a cool side-by-side comparison video in YouTube showing scenes from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Season 4, Episode 4 (which aired on Oct 18) and quotes by Junkrat. This video shows indisputable evidence that Junkrat’s quotes were taken literally word by word by Australian actor Axle Whitehead (playing as James/aka Hellfire).
“Stop me if you’ve heard this one before.”
“This bomb’s for you!”
“Well, that’s a fine-how-do-you-do!”
“I’m on fire! Well, more than usual.”
Season 4, Episode 4: “Let Me Stand Next to Your Fire” can be watched online here by selecting a TV provider until October 25th. Thereafter, it will be unlocked for non-TV provider viewers.
UPDATE 10/20/16: The Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D S4,EP04 writer confirmed via Reddit that he quoted Overwatch Junkrat and Tracer for that episode.
hipstaMATTic: “Hi. Matt Owens, writer of the episode here. Can confirm the references. A couple of Tracer ones too from Simmons. Subtle ones cause her quotes would be too obvious to sneak in. Hooray crossover!”
“Simmons has a few subtle Tracer lines. Common lines. Hers are very specific so hard to fit in haha. Glad the Internet liked this game. I’ll have to think of something for future episodes of mine.”
This might be just a coincidence, but while watching CSI: NY Season 5, Episode 5: The Cost of Living in Netflix I jaw-dropped when Head Detective Mac Taylor (Gary Sinise) said: “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again.”
One of Junkrat’s emotes says: “If at first you don’t succeed, blow it up again!” Listen to his voice lines here.
In the Hanamura map, above the Rikimaru Ramen Shop you can see a sign in the shape of a Murloc eating ramen from a plate on top of a UFO. When you shoot the mouth of the murloc, it makes Murloc noises in addition to the popular aggro noise: “Mrglmrglmrgl!” The delivery van also has a murloc design.
