** Also in "Charlie Don't Surf," Keith uses the name "[[Series/{{Monk}} Adrian Monk]]" [[CharacterNameAlias as an alias]]. Enrico Colantoni, Keith's actor, had previously guest-starred on an episode of ''Monk'' as a former partner of the titular detective, making one wonder how Keith would react if he ever saw that episode and noticed a guy looking a lot like him.

*** ''Film/TheGodfatherPartII'' is referenced in dialogue during flashbacks to Luke's time in prison. That movie in the ''Godfather'' trilogy stars Creator/RobertDeNiro as a young Vito Corleone, the same De Niro that appeared as Captain Shakespeare in ''Film/{{Stardust}}'' , a film which also features Creator/CharlieCox (Matt Murdock) as Tristan Thorn, and also features Creator/BenBarnes (Billy Russo from ''Series/ThePunisher'') as the younger version of Tristan's father.

*** alternatively Martha and Susan used to compete for roles, and Martha 'retreated' to New York after Susan beat her out once too often for a Screen Role... with some of her work even being mis-attributed to Susan due to faulty IMDb fact checking

** In "The Instincts", Rossi and Morgan are waiting for Reid in Reid's hotel room, where they're watching "The Young & The Restless". It's an obvious [[ActorAllusion allusion]] to Shemar Moore- who played Y&R's Malcolm Winters as well as CM's Morgan- but it raised an interesting conundrum: at the time the episode aired, no one else had played Winters and no one noticed Morgan's resemblance to him. This only leads to the question of who played Winters in the CM universe, since we never see anyone notice how similar Morgan looks to Winters.

** One that borders on ActorAllusion & MetaCasting; in one episode, the owner of a Russian dry cleaners refuses to put up Joey's picture, claiming he makes fun of Russians, with Joey noting he has a picture of Harrison Ford, who killed several Russians in ''Film/AirForceOne'', which the dry cleaner admits he's never seen ("you should, it's great"). It's this trope because the dry cleaner is played by Ilia Volok, who appeared in ''Film/AirForceOne'' as Vladimir Krasin, the first terrorist that Ford's character Marshall killed. Meaning that the dry cleaner never saw a movie where he gets killed, but Joey, who did see the movie, didn't notice that he looked like one of the terrorists from the film.

** In one episode, the cast asks the Big Giant Head how his flight was & he replies that it was terrible. He says [[Series/TheTwilightZone there was something on the wing]] and no one would believe him. Dick assures The Big Giant Head that the same thing had happened to him. Of course, Creator/JohnLithgow and Creator/WilliamShatner played the same part, in the Movie and the series respectively.
