** In "Brannigan, Begin Again", Zapp and Kif are thrown out of the military and have to live like hobos on the streets. Zapp dresses up in cowboy leather clothing and hustles on a street corner, to the tune of "Everybody's Talkin' At Me". The entire montage is a straight Homage to ''Film/MidnightCowboy''.
** Bender's B-Plot in "Mars University" is based directly on ''National Lampoon's Film/AnimalHouse'', though it mixes in various parodies of the [[TheEighties 80's era]] college frat film genre as a whole.
** "Why Must I Be a Crustacean in Love", where Fry [[PlayingCyrano Plays Cyrano]] for Dr. Zoidberg. Of course here Fry is not so fortunate when the lady decides that she wants him instead -- she's a hideous StarfishAlien -- so the plot shifts gears and we're suddenly watching [[Series/StarTrekTheOriginalSeries "Amok Time"]].
** "A Flight To Remember" is a retelling of the story of ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}''... [[RecycledInSpace IN SPACE!]]

* The ending to the ''Series/DoctorWho'' episode "Doomsday" is an homage to the ending of the ''His Dark Materials'' trilogy. The setting is the same (beach) and the issue is also the same (two lovers about to be separated forever across different dimensions).
** Also, the episode "The Stolen Earth" echoes the ending of ''Theatre/WestSideStory'', when The Doctor and Rose see one another across a street and start running... You know where this is going.

** During one DVD commentary, the song Homer sings to the tune of ''WesternAnimation/TheFlintstones'' is described as an "homage", to which the reply by writer Mike Reiss is "Yes, homage: French for theft."
** Near the end of one episode, a captured cat burglar tells the townspeople that he buried a large amount of money under a giant T. Cue the ''Film/ItsAMadMadMadMadWorld'' homage -- complete with appropriate music. And [[Series/ThePhilSilversShow Phil Silvers]] in his car.

** One example involves a ''StarWars'' Imperial Star Destroyer lookalike Martian ship, features a version of the Death Star trench run, and even has Marvin complaining about people getting themselves killed trying to recreate the scene. Later, just to make sure that no-one missed the reference, the deceased Duck Dodger and Space Cadet appear at the end as glowing blue ghosts wearing Jedi robes.

** Central character Marcus Didius Falco is a dissillusioned romantic, harking after the great days of the Roman Republic and who is often far too frank to his main employer, Emperor Vespasian.[[note]]Who is explicitly described as "not a Patrician". Which is correct as Flavius Titus Vespasianus did not emerge from the high-born Patrician class in Roman society.[[/note]] Vespasian tolerates this but sends Falco out on dirty missions to the furthest-flung corners of the Empire. Part of Falco's pay goes on maintaining his dead brother's widow and child. Falco, an occassional heavy drinker, is saved by marriage to a noblewoman a long way above him in the social scale. Rank is eventually conferred on the Republican. While not keeping dragons, Falco is made Keeper Of The Imperial Geese as a subtle joke by Vespasian...

* ''Series/TheBradyBunch'' episode from the last season of ''Series/TheXFiles''. ("Sunshine Days", broadcast 5/12/02.) (Not to mention any number of other ''Brady Bunch'' episodes on sitcoms in the 1980s and 1990s.)
* In the episode "Visitors From Down The Street" of ''Series/{{Crusade}}'' (the short-lived sequel to ''Series/BabylonFive''), the Excalibur discovers a world of English-speaking aliens with a UFO/conspiracy culture/mythology similar to that of late 20th-Century Earth -- only humans are cast in the role of the saucerfolk! But it's the appearance of alien versions of Mulder and Scully (and Cancer Man) -- and the conspiracies around them -- that turns the episode into a clever homage to and satire of ''Series/TheXFiles''.

* ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' addressed the constant comparisons between Dr. Gregory House of ''Series/{{House}}'' and Dr. Cox by actually having an episode where Dr. Cox hurt his leg and had to walk with a cane while he was faced with three bizarre mysteries in the hospital. And one of those mysteries was even the same as the clinic case in the very first ''House'' episode! Also, the 100th episode "My Way Home" was riddled with references to ''Film/TheWizardOfOz''. There was also an episode that homaged the standard sitcom format, titled "My life in Four Cameras".

* As a MerchandiseDriven franchise with legions of rabid ''adult'' fans with long memories, ''Franchise/{{Transformers}}'' tends to feature quite a lot of homages, to itself or to others, even in its toys (never mind in its plot-driven media). A simple example is when one toy is rereleased with a new paint job to look like something else (e.g., the mold for ''RevengeOfTheFallen'' toy Ransack, who turns into a biplane, got a repaint into a robot named Divebomb...using the Red Baron's colors -- it's particularly noteworthy that an early FanNickname for Ransack was Baron Ransack von Joy). Alternatively, given the number of names that are re-used, a character that has the name of a character from a different iteration of the franchise as a namesake might have design touches meant to emulate the older character. ''Film/TransformersRevengeOfTheFallen'' Bludgeon has two toys; one which is a repaint of an older mold, and another that is [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Image:ROTFtoy-BludgeonVoyager.jpg a screaming homage]] to [[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Bludgeon_%28G1%29 a G1 character of the same name]].
