Halliday: Hello... I'm James Halliday. If you're watching this, I'm dead. Before I died, I created, what we in the biz call, an Easter Egg. A hidden object in a game that gives special powers to whoever discovers it. First person to find the egg I've hidden somewhere inside the OASIS, will inherent my stock in Gregarious Games, currently valued in excess of half a million dol-...uh, half a trillion dollars worth. And total control of the OASIS itself. In the form of my avatar...Anorak The All Knowing, I created three keys. Three hidden challenges. Tests for worthy traits revealing three hidden keys to three magic gates. And those with the skills to survive these straits will reach the end where the prize awaits. Off you go, keys! The keys aren't just lying around under a rock somewhere. I suppose you could say they're invisible, hidden in a dark room that's at the center of a maze that's located... somewhere. Up here. Let the hunt for Halliday's Easter Egg begin. (00:08:20 - 00:10:05)

Wade Watts: I was born in 2027. After the Corn Syrup Droughts, after the Bandwith Riots. After people stopped trying to fix problems and just tried to outlive them. My parents? They didn't make it through those times, so I live here in Columbus, Ohio with my Aunt Alice. In 2045, Columbus is the fastest-growing city on Earth. It's where Halliday and Morrow started Gregarious Games. These days, reality is a bummer. Everyone's looking for a way to escape, and that's why Halliday... That's why he was such a hero to us. He showed us that we could go somewhere without going anywhere at all. You don't need a destination when you're running on an omnidirectional treadmill with quadraphonic pressure-sensitive underlay. James Halliday saw the future. And then he built it. He gave us a place to go. A place called... the OASIS. (00:02:15 - 00:03:30)

Wade Watts: A creator who hates his own creation. A hidden key: a leap not taken. Retrace your steps, escape your past. And the key of Jade will be yours at last.

Aech: I've never seen the Shining. Is it really scary?
Sho: Uh... I had to watch it through my fingers.

Sho: Ninjas don't hug.

Wade Watts: People come to the OASIS for all the things they can do, but they stay because of all the things they can be... Tall, beautiful, scary, a different sex, a different species, live action, cartoon... it's all your call. (00:04:30)

Halliday: I created the oasis because I never felt at home in the real world. I just didn't know how to connect with people there. I was afraid for all my life, right up until the day I knew my life was ending. And that was when I realised that... as terrifying and painful as reality can be, it's also... the only place that... you can get a decent meal. Because, reality... is real.

Halliday: She wanted to go dancing, so we watched a movie.

Anorak: Let the hunt for Halliday's Easter Egg, begin.

Mistakes

The third key Easter egg was actually a color-changing flashing pixel in the Atari Adventure game. You had to grab the purple bridge (they looked like outward facing brackets) and go into a box in the lower left corner of the blue maze and move along the bottom left corner. In the movie, it was picked up in the invisible maze. The wall you walk through then flashes along with the pixel, and you may move through it as shown in the movie to see the author's name.

Trivia

The car that Parzival uses in the race is the DeLorean, complete with all it's customization and advances, from the Back to the Future movies. Steven Spielberg, the director of Ready Player One, was also the Executive Producer of the Back to the Future trilogy with his company Amblin Entertainment. Spielberg only allowed the DeLorean to appear as a reference and tribute to BTTF director Robert Zemeckis, rather than himself. Despite Spielberg's overwhelming impact on pop culture throughout the decades, direct Spielberg references were rather deliberately omitted from "Ready Player One" by Spielberg himself. Ironically, he intended to include references to "Close Encounters of the Third Kind" (Spielberg's second blockbuster after "Jaws"), but he couldn't negotiate a licensing agreement with Columbia Pictures and Warner Bros.
