* In "Mac is a Serial Killer", the way the gang coaxes Mac in is similar to Chris Hansen's ''ToCatchAPredator''. Frank even says, "To catch a predator!" when they ask Frank where he's going.

** When the first episode ends on a cliffhanger, the music playing in the credits sounds exactly like SEVERAL of the songs from the credits of cliffhanger episodes ''Series/Breaking Bad''.

* In "Charlie Has Cancer", Artemis frequently mentions and acts out scenes from ''Film/CoyoteUgly''. In what doubles as an ActorAllusion, Katlin Olsen (Sweet Dee) had a minor role in the film.
* 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 selected it from the costume department without realizing that it was a reference and only learned about it after the episode was filmed.



* "The Gang Gets Invincible":
** 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 Music/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 ''Series/TheCosbyShow'', and the coach makes it a point to insist he's "[[SuspiciouslySpecificDenial not the guy from]] ''Series/TheCosbyShow''."



* In "Frank Sets Sweet Dee on Fire," the guys go to Chinatown and are surprised that it's nothing like the scenes from ''Film/BigTroubleInLittleChina.''
* In "Mac is a Serial Killer", the way the gang coaxes Mac in is similar to Chris Hansen's ''ToCatchAPredator''. Frank even says, "To catch a predator!" when they ask Frank where he's going.
* "Bums: Making a Mess All Over the City"
** Charlie makes repeated references to ''Film/{{Serpico}}'', dresses up like the title character, and tries to do an Creator/AlPacino impression.
** Dennis names the cat Special Agent Jack Bauer after the character from ''[[Series/TwentyFour 24]]''.
* Frank keeps editing parts of {{Rambo}}'s life into his own past in "Mac & Dennis: Manhunters".
* "America's Next Top Paddy's Billboard Model Contest":
** In order to outline how superior he is to Frank, Dennis compares his own body to the muscular ''Art/{{David}}'', which is about three times larger than a normal person.
** America's Next Top Billboard Model is a parody of ''Series/AmericasNextTopModel'', while Mac tries to turn it into a dating gameshow remniscient of ''Series/TheBachelor''.



* "A Very Sunny Christmas"
** When Mac is looking at old Christmas recordings his family took of them all opening presents on Christmas Morning, Mac's reaction to his present might be alluding to the [[http://youtu.be/GGmCaAEDxDU Nintendo 64 Kid]].
** Dee makes clumsily-worded references to ''Film/RaidersOfTheLostArk''.
** Frank crashes his Lamborghini and has a vision of a ''WesternAnimation/RudolphTheRedNosedReindeer''-type stop-motion world that also has a California Raisins reference.

* "The Gang Gets Trapped"
** When Frank is about to get caught he hides in a cupboard filled with stuffed toys leaving his face visible, like in ''Film/ETTheExtraTerrestrial''.
** And of course the repeated references to ''Franchise/IndianaJones'', right down to the hat and whip.
* The HalloweenEpisode "The Maureen Ponderosa Wedding Massacre" contains a reference to ''Film/{{Jaws}}'', with Charlie delivering a modified version of Quint's ''USS 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''?").

* 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''. It helps that Charlie goes into ManipulativeBastard mode once again, and it's glorious! Before the DownerEnding, it's very clear to the Gang that Charlie has them all by the throat.

* The ending of "The Gang Gets Held Hostage" has Frank in ''Film/DieHard'''s John [=McClane=]'s role with a pistol taped to the back of his head, and he even tosses Liam [=McPoyle=] off the roof of the pub like Hans Gruber. His line, "Yippy-kay-yay, Mister Falcon!" is the dubbed line from the edited-for-television version of the film that replaces "Yippy-kay-yay, mother fucker!"
