Northern Exposure Easter Egg - Episode When Joel Goes Home

In the episode when Maggie and Joel are searching for a missing city with a very obscure map, they run into "Adam" at the gaurd house of a bridge.
Adam Arkin had already begun starring in Chicago Hope at the time. When Maggie and Joel ask him for directions, he snaps "What do I look like, a brain surgeon?" which is exactly what he is on Chicago Hope. Later in the same scene, he calls Joel "Quiz Show Boy" because Joel solves a clue on the map. Around that time Joel was starring in the movie, Quiz Show. Kinda typical NE, man I miss that show!

Actually,the way I remember it,he told a guy that was with them that in order to pass the bridge he is going to need to answer a riddle,and when that man fails to find an answer he says something like "it's only a simple riddle, not a brain surgery".Norther exposure,it's not just a show,it's art.

Hmm... Having to answer a riddle to cross a bridge sounds more like a reference to "Monty Python and the Holy Grail" to me.
