!!The TV Series:
* ActorAllusion: [[Series/BleakHouse Gillian Anderson and John Lynch seem to have something of a history]].

!!The film:
* HeyItsThatGuy:
** Hey, it's [[PushingDaisies the Pie Maker!]] ...And he's mentally unstable!
** Beneath all that make-up, the elderly patient is [[Series/DoctorWho Davros]].
** Rob Breedlove [[{{Series/GameOfThrones}} sends his regards.]]
* RetroactiveRecognition: Lee Pace would go on to do ''Film/TheHobbit'' films.

!!The band:
* AdoredByTheNetwork: The Fall were favorite band of BBC Radio DJ John Peel and its was rather good thing for the band to have one of the most respected, beloved and influential radio [=DJs=] in the world as [[BigNameFan their number one fan]], as he continuously played the band's records on his shows, giving them a major ColbertBump. Even though the band played Peel's radio show many, many times before Peel's 2004 death, he and Mark E. Smith only met face-to-face on two apparently awkward occasions.
** When the band performed "Eat Y'self Fitter" for the first time on Peel's radio show in March 1983, Peel actually ''fainted'' from how awestruck he was by the song and his producer had to resuscitate him.
** Peel kept a [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Peel%27s_Record_Box large box of singles]] under his bed containing his favorite singles just in case he had to leave his house and his massive record collection during an emergency. His fans and friends noted that there were absolutely no Fall singles in the whole box. This is because his favorite Fall singles were housed in a ''completely separate box'' because there were too many.
* BlackSheepHit: The band's biggest UK chart hit is a cover of Music/TheKinks' "Victoria", which is a bit more poppy than their usual sound.
** "How I Wrote Elastic Man" is a meta-example - about a rock star pissed off that the only song anyone ever cares about is a BlackSheepHit where they don't even get the ''title'' right.
-->Everybody asks me how I wrote "'''P'''lastic Man"!
* ThrowItIn: "Paintwork" goes through a couple of odd, abrupt sound collage breaks where the music suddenly becomes distant-sounding and gets drowned out by a program about astronomy and later, a brief snippet of classical music. This was because Mark E. Smith accidentally taped over parts of the song.
** A sample of Music/DaftPunk's "Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger" creeps into the intro of "Cowboy George".
* WordOfGod: The title of ''Reformation Post-TLC'': the "TLC" part stands for "traitors, liars, and cunts". This was the first album released after most of the ''Fall Heads Roll'' lineup quit, so just guess who that was supposed to be referring to...
