Don’t call it a callback: Celebrating Broad City’s recurring jokes and Easter eggs

Before the third season of Broad City premieres tonight on Comedy Central, Estelle Caswell and Caroline Framke at enjoyed looking back on past episodes and escapades of Abbi and Ilana, and discovering how the show has incorporated callbacks and Easter eggs for even more jokes their most discerning fans can feast upon. For instance, did you know that two of the women Abbi and Ilana encounter on their subway scene that opened Season 2 were referencing a Season 1 snapshot of the duo? Or that another woman on the subway is beckoning Abbi by an alter-ego she hasn’t even discovered yet?

Roll the clip (which also includes references to callbacks and recurring jokes in Seinfeld, 30 Rock and Arrested Development)!
