Part of what makes the Borderlands franchise so fun is finding the games' hidden references. So post what you find here! But please NO SPOILERS! Some gamers might want to find this stuff on their own, so please be considerate
In reference to the volleyball scene in Top Gun, a mission given by a disgruntled pilot ends with you stealing volleyballs and burning down a volleyball net, then being chased by Val Kilmer look-alikes
Secret location lets you smash pixellated blocks, fight a Creeper and unlock a mincraft block-head skin
Secret location shows a ghost sitting by a campfire, while NPC Solitaire sits laughing nearby
Gunzerker Salvador has a skill called Sexual Tyrannosaurus, in reference to the movie Predator.

There is a mission called "Rocko's Modern Strife," which plays on the old cartoon "Rocco's Modern Life"
Whelan, there's ones on the postcards you can find on desks and tables around the place too. Check those out, would you kindly? I don't have the capability.
Is there any specific location that you remember they're on? I don't quite recall where they'd be, but I guess I'll look around Sanctuary a bit.
I think, I'm at work right now so I can't check, that there's a table in Roland's command centre in Sanctuary that has a few on it.

Cant believe no-one has posted the TMNT referance.
SPOILERS! . . . IM WARNING! . . . DONT READ! . . . MY EFFING SPOILER BLOCK WONT WORK! . . . ITS PRETTY MUCH YOUR FAULT IF YOU READ THIS NOW! . . . During a mission called "Kill Splinter Group" you will be asked to return to the bloodshot stronghold and defeat this group. The referances to The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are plentiful and obvious.
- First of all the mission has you delliver a Pizza. The turtles favourite food. - The mission takes place in a sewer. Where the turtles live. - The main enemies are named "Lee, Ralph, Dan and Mick" after Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo. The turtles names. - If you complete a little puzzle their master "Finter" will attack. Obviously named after the turtles master Splinter.
I was well impressed by this. Was a religious TMNT fan as a young kid. For me this poos all over the minecraft easter egg. It may be my favourite easter egg of all time. Shredder rules.
