** In Case 1:
*** The first some somebody does a 180 in their personality for the plot, Phoenix exasperatedly thinks [[Series/MontyPythonsFlyingCircus "...And now for something completely different...]]".
*** At one point, when talking about music, Phoenix thinks [[Film/{{Grease}} "I've got chills, and they're multiplying..."]].
*** The witness for the first trial is a hippie monk named [[PunnyName Pees'lubn Andistan'dhin]], and of course, at one point Phoenix asks him, [[Music/ElvisCostello "What's so funny, Pees'lubn Andistan'dhin?"]]
*** Sometimes the gallery would [[AudienceParticipation add to his performance]] using a tune that vaguely goes [[Music/{{Queen}} 'stomp, stomp, clap]], stomp, stomp'.
*** The afterlife in Khura'inism is known as the [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess Twilight Realm]]. While that might or might not be a shout out on its own, the fact that at one point Andistan'dhin refers to himself as the "Twilight Messenger" is.
*** When Phoenix accuses Andistan'dhin's testimony of being off, Andistan'dhin believes Phoenix is taking about his music and wonders if Phoenix like "Orchestra" or "Jazz Soul" better (referencing both the Gyakuten Meets Orchestra and Gyakuten Meets Jazz Soul albums).
*** [[spoiler:Pees'lubn Andistan'dhin]] references [[Music/TwistedSister Twisted Sister]] in "The Foreign Turnabout" by saying "I'm not gonna take it! No, I ain't gonna take it!".
