* The Vice President on ''Series/TheWestWing'' is a recovering alcoholic. A third season episode revealed that he stopped drinking when he was twenty-two because he had a family history of alcoholism and "some experiences in college." This has to be a reference to Tim Matheson's part in ''AnimalHouse''.

** During the season 6 finale, ''Whistleblower'', Jo Bennett gets a hold of Toby's mystery novel manuscript while searching people's computers for evidence of who ratted out that the company's printers catch on fire. Without being particularly asked, Jo excitedly shares her theories about the novel's mysteries with Toby, who initially tries to look pleased but, later, to the cameras, reveals his annoyance bursting out with a "Write your own damn novel!". This is likely a reference to Kathy Bates having played the role of the psychopath novelist kidnapperAnnie Wilkes in the movie ''Misery'', where she forces her poor victim to re-write his own novel following her imposed vision.
