** "The Wow Factor" has a plotline where Jay decides to take Fulgencio to a showing of ''Film/{{Skyfall}}'' instead of his baby class. We see the film's ad graphics in the background, hear part of it as Jay watches, and a woman says she lost interest after DanielCraig [[MrFanservice took off his shirt]]. Yet there was nothing in the episode's credits (perhaps because the film itself had come out a year beforehand).
** "The Feud" has one of the show's rare TakeThat's that also doubles as one of these, when Phil says, in response to someone else's question, "I always win! Except with Time Warner Cable!" In RealLife Ty Burrell, who plays Phil, does voiceovers in ads for Verizon's [=FiOs=] ... one of TWC's competitors.

** This show loves this trope. Most notable being in "Fears" after the doctor talked to Mitchell and Cameron (before leaving) about how her mother wouldn't be happy unless she was one big Asian {{stereotype}} and then proceeding to back into the garbage barrels and sideswiping their car.

* JustTrainWrong: "Crazy Train", in the seventh season, takes place on the Amtrak ''Coast Starlight'', which the family takes up to Portland for Didi's wedding. At one point Phil and Mitchell go back through the entire train to the caboose. American trains have not been required to have cabooses since the early 1980s, and have thus long since stopped using them.
