* {{Expy}}: ''{{Moonlighting}}'' (created by an ex-''Series/RemingtonSteele'' writer). Pierce Brosnan even makes a rare non-NBC crossover appearance as Steele in one episode. (Also, the ''Magazine/{{MAD}}'' parody "Moon-fighting" is filed under "A Remington Steal Department.")

* TakeThat: There was an episode with an elderly British spy who said "We in [=MI5=] thought James Bond was a sissy." Creator/PierceBrosnan was in the running to play James Bond when Roger Moore left the role, but had to back out due to commitments to ''Remington Steele''. [[Film/{{Goldeneye}} It all worked out in the end...]]

* MarriedAtSea: The producers royally pissed off many [[{{Shipping}} Shippers]] when they had Remington attempting to enter into a CitizenshipMarriage with a random hooker, then had him and Laura wed at the end of the episode by a sea captain in a surly ceremony that wasn't anything near the consummation that many fans of the show were hoping for. This trend carried on to the ending, with the result being that PierceBrosnan publicly stated that the ending of the series in many ways was a [[{{FanDisservice}} disservice]] to the fans and the characters.
