* JMS was very touchy on the subject of {{Shout Out}}s. He stated that freelance writers got carried away with them in the first season, and he put a halt on them after that. He also claimed that much of what fans called shout outs were either unintentional, non-existent, or a result of both parties having drawn from the same, far older, sources. There was one particular instance in Usenet where he went off on a long rant about this after someone asked if he was referencing ReturnToZork in an episode.

* Garibaldi is a big DaffyDuck fan and has a portrait of him over his bed. G'Kar thought it was a house god (of frustration). In the fifth season, Garibaldi also briefly pilots a Starfury with Daffy Duck NoseArt.

* ''Series/ThePrisoner'' gets several shoutouts, large and small. Bester's iconic "be seeing you" and hand gesture are direct references to the show, but the ArcWords "Who are you?" and "What do you want?" are both from the Prisoner's recurring introduction sequence.

* The gag from Literature/''TheHitchhikersGuideToTheGalaxy'' about all cultures having a drink called some variation of "Gin and Tonic" despite the drinks being otherwise unrelated is reversed; all species have a dish nearly identical to Swedish Meatballs, although the names are all different.
