* CelebrityParadox: Avoided with regard to Creator/JonLovitz, who exists in this show's universe -- but he came to prominence on ''[[Series/SaturdayNightLive Yesterday Night Live]]''. Jay's a big fan, but when he suggests by phone to a movie studio that in the wake of the remake ''Rebel Without a [Bill] Cosby'' they should make ''[[Main/DrStrangelove Dr. Strangelovitz]]'', he has to explain who Lovitz is: "He's a character actor! No, I don't 'think he died!'"

* GilliganCut: One episode had Jay bragging to someone that his face is on the cover of tons of merchandise...which then cuts to an entire ''warehouse'' full of his shirts and other merchandise where two men are looking at the overhead and bemoaning that "they just can't sell this stuff". One of the men then instructs a third man on a forklift to take it to a landfill with all of the ''Series/{{ALF}}'' merchandise.

** Jay does one after cleaning the Public Library and accidentally knocking off the '''L''', causing a crowed of people to rush in excited, only to quickly let out a depressed groan.

** Parodied in-universe in the promo clip from ''Film/{{Arthur}} 3: Revenge of the Liver'', which is set in a doctor's office...that has a grand piano in it for the title character to notice and play. Creator/DudleyMoore was an excellent pianist as well as actor and many of his film and TV appearances, including ''Arthur'', found ways to invoke this trope.

** Creator/MarlonBrando takes a big paycheck to play [[Series/BarneyAndFriends Barney the Dinosaur]]. The face-concealing costume looks as defeated as Brando feels. Previously, he played Mr. French in ''Series/FamilyAffair: The Motion Picture''.

** After ticking off a group of children by making [[BarneyTheDinosaur Humphrey The Hippo]] sad, we learn that Jay once sucker-punched ''Mister Rogers''! What led to this is never explained.

* ReTool: InUniverse, Duke's pet project ''Series/HeeHaw: [[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration The Next Generation]]'' was apparently just a modern version of the original ("We've got Junior Samples, Jr.!"); when we see it later on, it's morphed into ''HeeHaw'' [[XMeetsY meets]] ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration'' -- [[LiteralMetaphor literally]]. Worf plays a mean hambone.
