** After sending one of said "monkeys" flying with a ''Forzare''-strike staged to look like a judo flip, Harry taunts the other guards while mouthing his lines like badly-dubbed BruceLee.

* The Blue Beetle, Harry's VW, is a shout out to [[ComicBook/BlueBeetle the comic book character]]. Or possibly the [[NamesTheSame bumbling wannabe-superhero]] from ''TheElectricCompany'', as Harry doesn't correct Elaine when she suggests as much.

TheDresdenFiles, what with having a cast full of GenreSavvy characters and a PopCulturedBadass FirstPersonSmartass narrator, is absolutely ''[[ReferenceOverdosed crammed]]'' full of nerdy {{Shout Out}}s. And honestly, these are just a few that stand out. Harry rattles one off at least every couple of chapters, if not every couple of ''paragraphs''.

** In-universe example: Thomas's boat is named the ''Water Beetle'', a ShoutOut to Harry's beloved car. Its every appearance is likely to reference ''{{Jaws}}'', as it looks like Quint's fishing boat.
