* The HalloweenEpisode "The Maureen Ponderosa Wedding Massacre" contains a reference to ''Film/{{Jaws}}'', with Charlie delivering a modified version of Quint's Indianapolis speech (regarding rats, Charlie's bete noir, instead of sharks). The homage includes Charlie adopting Robert Shaw's mannerisms, as well as the appropriation of entire lines, referring to the "black, lifeless eyes" that "roll over white" when a rat bites you (this is referenced by Dennis, who snaps Charlie out of it by directly questioning "is that the speech from ''Jaws''?").

** And of course the repeated references to ''IndianaJones'', right down to the hat and whip.

* At the end of "The Gang Buys A Boat", the inflatable flailing-man continues to dance as the boat burns and sinks. This is highly reminiscent of the end of Literature/MobyDick, where Captain Ahab is lashed to the flanks of the whale and it seems he is beckoning the crew of the Pequod on to their doom.

* In "Charlie Got Molested", Mac can be seen wearing a jacket that say "Shermer H.S." This is alluding to the fictional high school used in the Creator/JohnHughes-verse. According to the commentary, the crew has selected it from the costume department without realizing that it was a reference and only learned about it after the episode was filmed.

* The HalloweenEpisode "The Maureen Ponderosa Wedding Massacre" presents the heavily inbred [=McPoyle=] family as shambling, misshapen, insane creatures, and brothers Ryan and Liam apparently trying on the Innsmouth Look. Add into that references to 'tainted blood' and you have a pretty clear shout-out to Creator/HPLovecraft. The episode also contains a reference to ''Film/{{Jaws}}'', with Charlie delivering a modified version of Quint's Indianapolis speech (regarding rats, Charlie's bete noir, instead of sharks).

** The film ''ComicBook/{{Invincible}}'' is frequently mentioned, to the point that the episode could be considered an AffectionateParody. Everybody seems to call the film, "That NewKidsOnTheBlock Movie," apparently mistaking Mark Wahlberg for his brother, who was in the music group.
** Geoffrey Owens plays himself masquerading as football player Donovan [=McNabb=]. The gang recognizes him from his recurring role on ''TheCosbyShow'', and the coach makes it a point to insist he's "[[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial not the guy from]] ''TheCosbyShow''."

* In "Charlie Rules the World," Charlie meets a girl from an fantasy MMO named "Queen of Thrones." This is almost certainly a reference to ''Series/GameOfThrones''
