** Kicked off Creator/NicolasCage's "Beige Volvo" trilogy. And then of course Connery's lines about being a [[Film/JamesBond British agent]]. Roger Ebert described the latter as "an in-joke the entire world gets."

* HeyItsThatGuy:
** One of the Marines is [[Series/{{Scrubs}} Perry Cox]]. Another is [[Series/{{House}} Detective Tritter]], another is [[Series/ThePractice Gene Young]], another is [[Series/TheCloser Detective Sanchez]], and another is [[Film/BlackHawkDown Sergeant Galentine]]. Goodspeed's girlfriend is Sam Marquez from ''Series/LasVegas'', the leader of the [=SEALs=] is [[TheTerminator Kyle Reese]], and Ed Harris. Just...Ed Harris.
** One reviewer said of Ed Harris "the dude has a glare that would give Clint Eastwood chills." Probably why he was so damn unnerving in ''Film/EnemyAtTheGates''.
** You should see the [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BYN6t5xt0ps outtakes]]. It's MethodActing, but '''GODDAMN, is Harris scary.'''
** Shep is Jack's best friend in ''Film/{{Titanic 1997}}''.
** [[Creator/TonyTodd The]] Film/{{Candyman}} is now a Marine!
** Turns out that before becoming White House Chief of Staff, [[Series/{{TheWestWing}} Leo McGarry]] was Director of the FBI.
** Super-obscure (because his face is masked), but one of the pilots of the fighter jets in the climax is played by Creator/JimCaviezel.
** [[Film/DeadPresidents Cleon]] is Gunnery Sergeant Crisp.
** Creator/XanderBerkeley appears uncredited early on as one of Goodspeed's coworkers.

* HilariousInHindsight: Todd Louiso's first line is to mock Goodspeed for spending a fortune on an LP when he could've spent $16 on the same album on CD. [[Literature/HighFidelity Dick would no doubt be disgusted by such a sentiment.]]
