* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xdby-GkQlg0 STELLA's "Birthday" sketch]] has David Wain's character David Wain start his flashback to the time he met Michael Showalter's character Mi-well, you know what comes next. Wain says he "must've met [=[Michael]=] twenty years ago!" Then the flashback starts. The color balance is slightly different, and the establishing shot is of a giant calendar with squares reading "REM", "The Cure", "Synth-Pop", and "Ronald Reagan", plus a {{Terminator}} poster visible on a nearby wall.

** "Bad Hair Day:" The trope is played with. The first time we see Blythe EyeRecall, it's actually more of an ImagineSpot that she ''believes'' is a memory than a genuine Flashback, which she then uses assures Mrs. Twombley that she's an ace stylist. The second time, she remembers the memory unembellished, and realizes she's not the awesome stylist/groomer she believes herself.

Added DiffLines:

* Parodied in the ''WesternAnimation/{{Chowder}}'' episode "The Meach Harvest", when Mung Daal freaks out at the prospect of having to make "Mince-Meach Pie". The screen starts to waver as if a flashback is about to happen, but Mung Daal interrupts it with a shout of "No, no flashbacks! It's too gruesome!" Played straight later in the episode, when the wavy effect happens uninterrupted as Mung Daal relates to Chowder and Schnitzel what happened the last time he tried to harvest meaches.
