!! FridgeBrilliance:
* Happens within the show too - during ''Scenes from a Hat'', the suggestion "Bad Choices For A Presidential Running Mate" comes up, and Wayne goes into GaryColeman mode while standing beside Colin, who's presumably the "presidential candidate"... until Drew points out that Colin even resembles Mr Drummond from ''Series/DiffrentStrokes'', elevating the intended reference.
** There's also the time where Colin was "a hairdresser whose colleagues all phoned in sick" in ''Sound Effects'', and apparently got so "stressed out" from working several "customers" at once that he slipped into his EnemyToAllLivingThings act. Drew waited till it was over to comment "looks like Colin has a thing against ''places where they cut your hair.''"
** Perhaps the most well-known moment is Colin's Newsflash over himself. He can't see that he's providing a news flash over footage of himself in previous scenes...yet, when asked how the incident started, he claims, "It all started with a badly timed bald joke!" Everyone goes ''nuts''. After Colin eventually guesses what it is, he suddenly chuckles when he realizes, "I said the 'bald joke' thing, too!"
* What's with Colin's garish shirts, you ask? It's so that he never winds up interfering with the ChromaKey during ''Newsflash'', that's what.
* For the UK version, you have the live-action intro. Improv is about the acting and jokes without the props and costumes; the intro has the costumes and props, but without the actors.
* One "Scenes From a Hat" suggestion was rejected state songs. Colin sang: "Come to Florida and die!" This joke could be interpreted in two ways: That old people move to Florida (likely what Colin was intending), or that Miami has a high crime rate. It's fridge brilliance because you probably wouldn't think of both interpretations on initial watch.
* In the "Greatest Hits" about Vegas, Colin remarked that he had a bit of a headache, because he accidentally had his head stuck in a vice for three hours. Upon first watch, this is merely a funny, random throwaway line, until you realize that the film ''Film/{{Casino}}'' had a scene featuring a character whose head was crushed in a vice. This makes the line all the richer, and ties it into the theme of that playing to boot.
* When "Scenes from a Hat" brings up the suggestion "Things UsefulNotes/GeorgeWBush does when he's by himself", Wayne mimes playing with a Speak-and-Say kind of toy that says "Shall we play a game?" It takes on different meaning if you know that ''that's the exact quote from Film/WarGames.''
* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5MZ2Kx55gt8 This]] "Hollywood Director" from the revival series starts with some mild confusion over whether Greg or Jeff is the captain of the plane. Granted all planes have the exact same controls on both sides for safety reasons, but the confusion may well arise from the fact that ''Jeff's the one on the driver's side.''
* One "Scenes from a Hat" in the revival brings up the suggestions "strange things for your proctologist to do", leading to Jeff... [[{{Squick}} climbing in completely]], whereupon Colin [[ThrowItIn joins in and says he can't find a way out.]] Seems like a random Colin moment, until you consider that it could well fit with the suggestion's description - Colin was ''[[CrossesTheLineTwice the previous proctologist.]]''
* From the same taping as the above ep, the "Greatest Hits" game has Colin mention apparently random pairings of artists like Music/{{Macklemore}} and Music/JerryLewis. "Thrift Shop" is credited to Macklemore and ''Ryan'' Lewis. [[ShownTheirWork Someone's been paying attention.]]
* The first new game of ''Whose Line'' has Colin and Ryan mimicking the {{Superman}} scenario of Kal-El being placed in the vessel leaving a collapsing Krypton. Ryan mentions something about making the pod out of sand, which seems completely random until you pay attention to the dialogue - he's referring to the Kryptonian nanotech in ''Film/ManOfSteel.''
* Aisha gets into a semantics debate with the guys on the subject of Adelaide, and Jeff remarks that Drew never would have bothered with all that. Explains why he never learned that Africa is a continent, really.
* One game of "Hats" sees Wayne getting a thing that looks like some creature is coming out the side of his head. Later on, the "Newsflash" game uses footage from ''Film/BasketCase'', which is actually about a creature that was really someone's deformed and seperated conjoined twin!
* One "Greatest Hits" has Colin declaring an "unusual pairing" of Music/LilWayne and Music/LucianoPavarotti. Not so unusual if you know that ''both of them'' have done that dozens of times (Lil' Wayne on mainstream releases, and Pavarotti in his LongRunner ''Pavarotti and Friends'' concerts.)
* The "World's Worst: Person to be a member of the armed forces" has one that may shock you. Given the nature of the show, one would expect one of the participants to make a joke about Drew Carey, but it never happens. Then you learn that ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Drew_Carey#Early_life Drew is a former Marine]].''
