* It could just be my imagination but the background music for "Better Angels" sounds a lot like [[StarWars "The Force]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HcZ9kQ1h-ZY Theme"]]. It might have something to do with the good man from [[UsefulNotes/NaziGermany an evil empire]] who needs to know he's still a good man despite what he did during [[WW2 the war]]. Also based on a true story.

* "Hiatus part 1" has Tony at one point say, "I have a better chance of hooking up with Creator/JessicaAlba than these guys do of infiltrating Sealift." Michael Weatherly, the actor who plays Tony, costarred with Jessica Alba in ''Series/DarkAngel'', and was engaged to her.

** Normally, the team is not familiar with most of Tony's movie references. However, when he [[Film/{{Speed}} loops a video feed to save a room of hostages]], everyone calls him out afterwards when he tries to take credit, knowing which movie he stole the tactic from.
** Arguably, the joke here is that Tony had forgotten the film-inspired origins of his idea and is actually convinced he thought it up himself. Look at his expression! (Unless Anthony [=DiNozzo=] is a better actor than, say, Michael Weatherly...) Of course, none of the rest of the team believe him for a moment.

* In "Secrets," one of the neighbourhood-vigilante superheros being interrogated exclaims "Why on [[Franchise/MarvelUniverse Earth 616]] would I kill a fellow superhero!?"
* When Tony refers to assistant coroner Palmer as "the autopsy gremlin", Gibbs' response is telling Tony to [[Film/{{Gremlins}} not get him wet.]]
* After a tech developer insults [=McGee=] by assuming he's into ''dwebby'' role playing games, [=McGee=]'s responses is: "[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Until I took an arrow in the knee.]]" [[PopCulturalOsmosisFailure The tech developer apparently doesn't get the joke.]]

** ''Film/PulpFiction'' pops up again in season 5's "Corporal Punishment" when the Marine of the week starts to convulse on his hospital bed from a drug overdose and is mistakenly given adrenaline.

* Elle's obsession with capturing the terrorist Parsa is an obvious shout-out to Agent Maya's obsession with UsefulNotes/OsamaBinLaden in ''Film/ZeroDarkThirty'', though unlike the film/real life Elle isn't a FieryRedhead, [[spoiler: she's met Parsa in person and has some kind of "personal" relationship with him (one of them even knows what the others favorite health bar is), Parsa is captured alive but gets shot by Elle after he attacks her]].

** There's also an odd moment where Tony [[OutOfCharacterMoment does not know a pop culture reference]] -- he has no idea who or what "Locky" the German shepherd is named after ([[TheDogWasTheMastermind the dog wasn't the killer]] nor was the killer [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/David_Berkowitz#Confession delusional and believed the dog told them to kill people]]). Interestingly no one cites [[Film/{{Thor}} the]] [[Film/TheAvengers2012 recent]] [[Film/ThorTheDarkWorld films]] -- [=Mcgee=] cites Myth/NorseMythology while Ellie refers to [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor the comics]]; since we don't meet Loki's owner they're all possible sources.

* "Being Bad", the second episode of season 14 has Palmer looking at photos of the gang of thieves and thinking that it reminds him of "TheBreakfastClub". They more or less are a villainous version, with each member fitting with a character from the movie.

** [=McGee=] and Ellie later note that the villain of the week [[spoiler: who had been pretending to be gullible and practically blind and deaf]] totally "[[Film/TheUsualSuspects Keyzer Soze-ed]]" them but again since their usual source of movie references has left and the two new agents aren't as into pop culture the reference falls flat.
** Possible third reference: The villain [[spoiler: [[Series/BreakingBad was a seemingly harmless substitute chemistry teacher who poisoned the victim]] ]].
