Toy Story 3 (2010)

Trivia: When Woody thinks the toys who were in the trash bag are being crushed at the back of the garbage truck, the truck's license plate number is RM237. Then later, when Woody goes back to Sunnyside to rescue his friends, Chatter Telephone warns him about the Monkey who is the "eye in the sky" while watching the security monitors, and in a couple of shots of those monitors there's a box at the right side of the table which has a very distinctive design. Both are nods to the movie The Shining. (00:56:15)

The Journey - S2-E1

Trivia: While Maggie MacKenzie and John-Boy are at the Mermaid Restaurant, when they both dance together Maggie envisions her long deceased husband, Michael MacKenzie, dancing with her instead of John-Boy. It is Earl Hamner Jr. who portrays Michael MacKenzie in this uncredited onscreen cameo during the scene (note teeth and facial features are identical).

The Unthinkable - S8-E15

Trivia: While John is reading the newspaper funnies to John Curtis, we hear Erin and Mary Ellen come home, so John puts the folded newspaper down on the couch. And as the newspaper lies on the couch, we can see the large white adhesive label with typewritten sentences adhered to the center of the funnies page. Presumably, these are the actor's lines as he was reading quite animatedly to the toddler (sweet moment). (00:06:25)

The Outrage: Part 1 - S9-E1

Trivia: While everyone is at the table eating supper and talking, little John Curtis taps on John's shoulder, then John turns and asks "What?" John Curtis points to his pants and excitedly says, "I got new pants," and John says, "I see that. Who got you those? Your mommy?" Then John Curtis looks offscreen, away from the other actors on set, and replies, "No, from Pat," (no characters named Pat are on the show) and without missing a beat, John responds, "From Pat? Where does she live? On the next farm?" And John Curtis answers, "Yeah," amidst all the giggles we can hear, so John answers with a smirk, "Okay, good!" This is such a hilariously precious unscripted moment, and great they decided to leave it in the episode. (00:26:15)

The Premonition - S9-E5

Trivia: When Jason and John-Boy are at the French restaurant John-Boy suggests Vichyssoise soup, but Jason tells his brother he's not a fan of that soup. In 8x10 "The Silver Wings," Serena worked on getting the cooking merit badge, and during the meal (which Corabeth helped plan) Serena served Vichyssoise soup, and Jason's facial expression when he tastes it helps explain why he is not a big fan.

Trivia: At the start of the first scene, when Nisi serves the customer she calls Nate, he is played by Rudy Ray Moore, known for the title role in the film "Dolemite," one of the most popular Blaxploitation films of the 70s. After Nate refuses the burned toast, Mickey tells Nisi, "Girl, don't pay him no mind, he thinks he's Dolemite." Also, note the name "N. Townsend" on Nate's uniform patch, which is the last name of the director, Robert Townsend.

Lost (2004)

Trivia: There is a short epilogue (about 12 minutes long) titled "The New Man in Charge" that never aired on TV. The epilogue focuses on events after the series finale "The End" and it may offer a few appealing revelations to loyal Lost fans.

Ever After (1998)

Trivia: After Rodmilla and her daughters leave for the masque, during the next scene at the royal palace a large sculpture can be seen in the courtyard, especially in some closeups from different angles, such as when Gustave approaches Leonardo. This mythologically themed sculpture consists of a tailed figure riding upon one of two creatures holding their reins, with a ship behind them. This sculpture can be seen during the very first scene, albeit with a few changes. When Wilhelm and Jacob Grimm walk into the Grande Dame's chamber she is sitting up in an unusual type of bed. Note the bed's "headboard" and "footboard" are the ship hull (in the fullscreen version the bed's side is visible with its distinctive design), and we also see the creatures (minus their horns) with the rider's arm holding their reins at the foot of the bed. Something else to notice near the end, when Leonardo gifts the young couple the belated wedding present the room they're all in is not in the royal palace, they are in the manor, gathered in the dining room where Marguerite had burned Danielle's book Utopia.

The Little Mermaid mistake picture

Trivia: When Scuttle discovers that Vanessa is actually Ursula, he sees Vanessa's true image reflected in the mirror, but the image we see in the mirror is not reversed, note Ursula's mole and her shell necklace are not backwards. This may be part of Ursula's magic, or simply an animation error, which is common (I believe it's the latter). (01:06:40)

That '70s Show (1998)

The Pill - S1-E17

Trivia: During Bob's 'open for business' daydream, the man who has his hand up cupped over his ear while he says, "Now, if you'll excuse me, I'm next," is Gary Owens, who played the Announcer on the 60s-70s TV show 'Rowan and Martin's Laugh-In' and always had his hand cupped over his ear. In a few other episodes we only hear his very distinct voice.

The One Where Ross Hugs Rachel - S6-E2

Trivia: When Rachel thinks that she, Monica, and Chandler will be roommates, she sings, "Come and knock on our door," then Monica adds, "We'll be waiting for you," which are lyrics to the theme song for the 1970s-80s ABC sitcom 'Three's Company'.
