Added DiffLines:

* ''Film/AceVenturaWhenNatureCalls'' involves a sacred bat known as 'Shikaka', to which Wachati tribesmen must bow when its name is spoken. Upon learning this, Jim Carrey proceeds to rattle off a string of similar-sounding words to try and make them slip up. One of his choices is ''Film/TheShawshankRedemption''. Actor Bob Gunton features prominently in both movies.

** Kal Penn [[HeyItsThatGuy calling The White Bitch (Jennifer Coolidge) "Stifler's mom"]], then finding the White Castle she offers (insert shot of burger store) familiar: he was one of the eponymous characters in ''Film/HaroldAndKumarGoToWhiteCastle'' (in Britain ''Harold and Kumar Get the Munchies'') (later, a soldier yells at him, "Take that, Kumar!")

* In the film ''TheMarine'', Wrestling/JohnCena's relentless pursuit of the bad guys prompts one underling to remark that "This guy's like the Franchise/{{Terminator}}!" The head bad guy, played by Robert "[[Film/Terminator2JudgmentDay T-1000]]" Patrick, glances in the rear view mirror at the comment.

* ''Franchise/IndianaJones''
** In ''Film/IndianaJonesAndTheKingdomOfTheCrystalSkull'', Indy at one point declares, "I have a bad feeling about this," a line he previously uttered as Han Solo in ''Franchise/StarWars'' (and which would be a sort of OncePerEpisode occurrence in that film series; Solo was the second character to say it, [[Film/ANewHope in the trash compactor]]). ''Yoda Stories'' has an appearance by Indy too. Luke just says he looks familiar.

First in ''Film/DarkCity'', then ''Film/RequiemForADream'' (both scenes involving a red dress too) and finally in ''The House of Sand & Fog''.
