- Actor Allusion:
- In the episode "Webcam Girl", the song "Stay" by Lisa Loeb appears several times and Loeb herself appears very briefly having a discussion with another webcam girl which amounts to quotes of the song. "I thought that I could stay but I was wrong!"
- Tyler Posey appears in the third season episode "Fourth and Inches" as a high school football player. The school's mascots are wolves.
- In "Save the Cat", Adam gets a hawk and names her Beth, the same name as his character's girlfriend on another TV show.
- The Danza: Baring a few exceptions, every character's name is some sort of distortion of their actor's. To name a few, Adam Devine plays Adam Demamp, Blake Anderson plays Blake Henderson, Anders Holm plays Anders Holmvik, Jillian Bell plays Jillian Belk and Kyle Newacheck plays Karl Hevacheck.
- Dawson Casting: A variation on this, as the three guys are playing characters slightly but notably younger than their actual age. In "Old Man Ders", Ders turns 25 but his actor was 30.
- I Want You to Meet an Old Friend of Mine: In season 7, pretty much every guest star had previously worked with Adam: Andrew Bachelor, Nina Dobrev, Flula Borg and Laura Ashley Samuels.
- Star-Making Role: For Adam Devine, and to a lesser extent Anders Holm and Jillian Bell.
