Marx Brothers

You can find three Marx Brothers in Quest for Glory II. Two are rather obvious, but the third is hidden.

Groucho is Ali Fakir. Bargain with him for an interesting pseudo-Marxian monologue. Chico is Alichica, the souvenir seller.

For the third Marx brother, Harpo, you need to turn on Silly Clowns in the menu, since he's the silly clown in this game. On Day 3, go west from Fountain Plaza and you'll see him pass by at the T-junction, blowing a horn.

X-Ray glasses

Purchase the X-Ray glasses at the magic shop. Then when you meet Zayisha, wear the glasses as she changes her clothes to see her in the nude. Note that, despite popular belief, this does NOT affect honor points or disqualify the hero from becoming a Paladin.
