* Even ''ComicStrip/{{Garfield}}'', one of the most stagnant and continuity-free strips in newspapers, has gotten in on the act a few times. In a strip from February 2017, Garfield thinks back on a time when he couldn't sleep: November 8, 1992. Sure enough, in the November 8, 1992 strip, Garfield can't get any sleep because of "night noises" keeping him awake.

The opposite of this is either {{Foreshadowing}} (a forward reference done in a previous episode) or CallForward (a "fake" forward reference in a flashback or prequel). See also ChekhovsGun, BrickJoke, {{Bookends}}, MythologyGag, SequelEpisode and InternalHomage.

* Done a couple times in ''ComicStrip/FoxTrot''. In one arc, Jason writes a parody of ''Literature/HowTheGrinchStoleChristmas'' with his mother Andy cast as the Grinch. Who-Jason roots through her purse and finds it's full of ''Film/{{Titanic}}'' ticket stubs, calling back to an arc where Andy became obsessed with the movie and watched it several dozen times.

* In Wrestling/VickieGuerrero's match at ''Wrestling/{{WrestleMania}} 26]'' she went to the top rope and performed a Frog Splash as a tribute to her late husband Wrestling/EddieGuerrero (she had been introduced on WWE TV during Eddie's feud with {{Rey Mysterio|Jr}}) and danced like he used to in his victory poses.

* ''[[WesternAnimation/AGoofyMovie An Extremely Goofy Movie]]'' has several. In the ''WesternAnimation/GoofTroop'' episode "Puppy Love", PJ got a crush on a girl after she recited her poetry. He does the same thing for the same reason in this movie. In the episode "Date with Destiny", Goofy went on a dancing date with one of Max's school staff members--he does the same thing here. The final scene has some to the first movie: the trophy engraving was reminiscent of what Max and Goofy said to each other when their relationship was at its tensest moment, and Bobby calls back to two jokes in one line when he uses the word "cheesa" to describe the pizza he's holding and pointedly calls it "scrumptious."

Sometimes a Call-Back will take up so much of a chapter or episode that it will become a SequelEpisode to the earlier story it's referencing.

In a masterclass on playwriting, Alan Ayckbourn mentions this {{trope}} specifically, calling it "The Plant". Early on, one of his two demonstration actors mentions that he has an urge to sneeze when sexually aroused. Then at the very end:

->'''Actress:''' Do you think we could become more than friends?\\
'''Actor:''' Aaaachoo!
