* ScrewedByTheNetwork: SyFy ordered season six and there were rumors it'd be the last season. Then they said the cancellation rumors were false and they looked forward to more. Then they took back season six and cancelled the show for real. Luckily, they then ordered an extra episode of season five to wrap the series up.

** Two in "The Ex-Files". An obvious one is when Dr. Grant, played by James Callis, claims that he's hallucinating "a leggy blond in a slinky, red dress"; a nod to his role as Dr. Gaius Baltar in the remake of ''Series/{{Battlestar Galactica|2003}}'' who really was followed around by such a hallucination. [[spoiler: A subtler one occurs when Carter calls his hallucination of Nathan Stark "undead" leading it to reply "Nope, not a vampire". Ed Quinn appeared as a vampire on ''Series/TrueBlood'' for a few episodes after leaving the show.]]
** In "The Real Thing," Holly (Felicia Day) is attacked by a dragon. Felicia Day played Tallis in ''WebVideo/DragonAgeRedemption'' and ''VideoGame/DragonAgeII'' DLC.
* TheDanza: Senator Michaela Wen is played by Ming-Na Wen.



* HeyItsThatVoice: Salli Richardson (Allison) played Elisa Maza in ''{{WesternAnimation/Gargoyles}}''.
* {{Jossed}}: Averted by the common fan theory held that Nathan [[spoiler:wasn't killed in the time machine, but was rather sent to another time or dimension and is going to return.]] When he does return, [[spoiler:he says that this was [[{{Lampshading}} exactly the case]]. Although this turns out to be a hallucination, Nathan having not really returned,]] we still don't know what happened to him.



* Deputy Andy is one big ''WesternAnimation/ToyStory'' ShoutOut. One of Woody's pullstring phrases is "You're my favorite deputy!", something his ''owner'' Andy would have heard quite often, no doubt. And Eureka's Andy is a highly advanced android, something Woody's ''other'' favorite deputy, Buzz, would be quite familiar with.

Added DiffLines:

* DawsonCasting: In the episode with the isolation environment. Wound up making the "long distance relationship" going on there really creepy. Completely averted by Zoe, however (Jordan Hinson is actually about two months ''younger'' than her character).
** Actually it was initially inverted. During the pilot Hinson was 13 playing 15, by the time of the series she was closer to her character's age.
