*** BruceWillis also appeared for a guest run, free of charge, after losing a bet to Matthew Perry on the set of their film ''The Whole Nine Yards''. Similarly, Willis's character intimidates Chandler a bit (although moreso Ross, who's dating the daughter of Willis's role) just like in the movie.
* With LampshadeHanging, Michael J. Fox's last episode of ''SpinCity'' began with him complaining over the phone to his therapist for sending him to meet with a substitute. He says, "You're almost like a father to me. How am I supposed to have that with some new guy?" and in walks the substitute therapist, played by Michael Gross, who played Michael J. Fox's father in ''Series/FamilyTies''.

* ''MetalGearSolid4'': In the Japanese dub, Snake is voiced by AkioOhtsuka. When [[spoiler: the older Big Boss, who Snake was cloned from, appears at the very end of the game]], he was voiced by Akio's real-life father Chikao Ohtsuka.
* In the ''Franchise/MassEffect'' series Female Shepard and Ashley Williams are voiced by Creator/JenniferHale and Kimberly Brooks. The two have worked together as partners before... specifically band-mates Thorn and Luna from the various ''ScoobyDoo'' movies and shows. This makes it all the more funnier if you have a female Shepard and always include Ashley in your squad and then turn the Hex Girls song on while playing.
