There are 106 quotations from Tanach in mishnayos Kadashim, according to Jason Kalman, "Building houses on the sand: the analysis of Scripture citation in the Mishnah", Journal for Semitics, ISSN 1013-8471, volume 13, number 2, 2004, pages 186–224. I haven't counted them, myself.
106 is the denominator in an approximation of pi in a popular (for certain Jew-geeky values of "popular"), gematria-based inference from Sefer Melachim.
Rambam (in his Sefer Hamitzvos, end of the section on positive commandments) enumerates 60 positive mitzvos that a typical man would perform over the course of his lifetime (barring unusual circumstances), of which 46 apply to women as well. So a married couple would, between them, perform 106 positive mitzvos.
(A stretch, I know...)
