Reference to The Office

This side quest is a reference to a scene from The Office where a Japanese immigrant flees from the Yakuza after killing their boss in surgery. He claimed it was an accident, but admits to Daryl that it was secretly on purpose and that he is the best surgeon. In Cyberpunk 2077, the surgeon kills a Tyger boss and also claims to be the best. Both surgeons admit that they were save by someone starting with the letter D, Daryl in The Office and Dennis in Cyberpunk.

Easter Eggs and Cameos

Tips and Strategies

Have the Athletic Perk Transporter

The Transporter perk will allow you to sprint and shoot with pistols while carrying a body. This can make carrying the surgeon to the car much easier as you can fight when you have to without having to drop his body or book it if you need to.
