* Perhaps a subtle or unintentional one but in Season 3 finale [[spoiler:while fighting, Simon takes Michael from behind and slams him repeatedly against a wall. The short sequence uses the much of the same cinematography as the fight between the T-800 and T-1000 from ''Terminator 2''. Earlier in the episode, Simon walks out from behind the heat haze of an explosion in a police outfit -- again, sharing similar cinematography to what the ''Franchise/{{Terminator}}'' series of works have used prior. Garrett Dillahunt (Simon) previously played a Terminator and A.I. in ''Series/TheSarahConnorChronicles''.]]

* Sam and Fiona approach a group of con artists while under the guise of federal agents who had been monitoring them. Sam introduces himself and Fi as detectives Series/CagneyAndLacey, alluding to costar Sharon Gless.
* Additionally, in the second season Fiona starts dating a man named Campbell. In one episode, a conversation between Fiona and Sam takes place, with Fiona commenting on how good-looking a particular man is, to which Sam (played by Creator/BruceCampbell) replies, "Well, he's no Campbell."
* Michael also makes contact with a Libyan operative named Anwar in one episode.
* Inverted in a "Signals and Codes" where the client of the week was played by an actor named Michael Weston.
* In one episode, Sam and Barry are discussing people who only use one name, and Sam says "Spider-Man" as an example. Bruce Campbell has a cameo in all three of the {{Spider-Man}} movies.
* And in the winter premiere of season 3, [[Series/CagneyAndLacey Tyne Daly]] guest stars.
* WordOfGod mentions that as a general rule, they write characters with a specific actor in mind. This is in part due to the need to quickly establish characters and chemistry (see the above Tyne Daly instance) as it is just having fun.
* There was also "False Flag", where Fi said Sam's bulletproof vest smells like Old Spice and bourbon. Bruce Campbell is a spokesperson for Old Spice.
* In one episode, Sam is doing surveillance on Carla, who takes time to swim. Commenting on her ability, Sam says: "The woman is a machine." Carla's actress, Tricia Helfer, played a robot on ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|Reimagined}}''.
* In 5x6, Sam compliments Mike on his chin. Mike instantly turns to face Sam, seemingly very surprised, and notes that it means a lot coming from Sam. Bruce Campbell (Sam) really is known for [[LanternJawOfJustice his chin]] among other things -- he even titled the book he authored after his chin.
* A recent episode showed Gabrielle Anwar once again getting to [[Film/ScentOfAWoman tango]].
* John C. [=McGinley=] plays Michael's former CIA mentor Tom Card. References to [=McGinley=]'s role as Dr. Cox on ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' abound: among other things, Card displays expasperation and impatience with his young protege, he does a ton of {{Deadpan Snark|er}}ing, and he even does Dr. Cox's frustrated whistle in one scene.
* Barry the money launderer refers to Sam's shotgun as his [[Franchise/EvilDead "boomstick."]]
