* In ''Series/ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia'' Frank, in an effort to become well again in a short period of time, takes an unsafe amount of prescription drugs and is institutionalised after wandering the streets of Philadelphia. While in the mental ward, a series of events plays out very similarly to those of ''Literature/OneFlewOverTheCuckoosNest'' in which Danny [=DeVito=] played the minor role of Martini. Most notable similarities include a nurse garbed much like Nurse Ratched, and a deaf, dumb and blind Indian, whom Frank tries to convince to throw a drinking fountain through a window.

* ''Series/{{CSINY}}'' had an episode where the suspect of the week is a really passionate actor trying out for the part of George in a play of ''Literature/OfMiceAndMen''. As he's rehearsing his lines, Mac comes up to him and says something along the lines of. "Looks like you might beat me to the part." One of Gary Sinise's (Mac's Actor) early roles was actually playing George in and directing a movie adaptation of ''Of Mice And Men''.

** Yet ''another'' episode had Dick talking with Michael about old TV shows, and in particular the old Saturday night lineup on CBS (''Series/AllInTheFamily'', ''Series/{{MASH}}'', ''TheMaryTylerMooreShow''). Michael: "Yeah, and what was that one with the shrink who stuttered?" Dick: "He didn't stutter, Michael, he...he...he stammered."

* In the ''Series/{{Psych}}'' episode "Sixty Five Million Years Off", Shawn and Gus are walking down a field covered with holes. They have a conversation of what movie it reminds them of (it's ''Film/{{Holes}}''), with Gus making guesses that get even more off-base with each one. Guess what movie he had a role in?
** The episode "Earth, Wind, and... Wait for It" featured former Series/LawAndOrder detective Milena Govich as a guest star. Shawn: "Which is kind of hard to distinguish from your "I thought this was gonna be a new episode of Law & Order, but turns out it's a repeat" face." Milena Govich's character, Nina Cassady, can only be seen on reruns.
** In the episode, "True Grits," when a witness tries to dismiss Shawn and Gus, Shawn replies, "You think this is Law & Order? You don't get to decide when the interview's over." Creator/AnthonyAnderson, who had previously played Detective Bernard on ''Series/LawAndOrder'', was also in that scene.
*** Anderson's character states in another scene that he wants to join the police academy and becoming a detective, an idea his lawyer promptly dismisses.
** In the episode "She Loves Me, She Loves Me Not" Teryl Rothery plays one of Shawn's dates while they are speed dating to find a killer. She mentions having a pet goat named Cassie. In her long-running role as Dr. Janet Frasier on ''Series/StargateSG1'', Rothery's character had an adopted daughter named Cassie.
** In the episode "Dead Man's Curveball", Creator/DannyGlover says "I'm too old for this crap", a shout out to his character in ''Film/LethalWeapon''
** Truly epic one in "The Santabarbarian Candidate". While walking through City Hall, Gus says he could have made it all the way the White House, as an aide. Shawn then tells Gus to say "Yes, Mr. President" which Gus repeats with relish. The scene is topped off by Shawn saying "Sorry, Charlie" to Gus. Dule Hill's breakout role was Charlie Young in ''Series/TheWestWing''.
*** Later in the same ep, they make another reference to Dule Hill's role in {{Holes}} when Gus says "I can fix that" about helping Shawn throw the race for Mayor.
** In "No Trout About It", Shawn introduces himself to a new character played by Anthony Michael Hall as a psychic. Hall, who played psychic John Smith on ''Series/TheDeadZone'', looks right at the camera and says he doesn't believe in psychics.

*** According to TheOtherWiki's now-deleted article on the episode, Picardo actually requested that this line be added since it had only recently closed. There is also another moment in a season 5 episode where Woolsey discusses founding an alliance, which is immediately compared to the [[Franchise/StarTrek Federation of Planets]].
