In that venerable classic of cinema Piranha 3D, Richard Dreyfuss does a cameo essentially as Matt Hooper signing "Show Me the Way To Go Home" while fishing. Graciously, he dies in the scene.
Also in several episodes of that show Shatner opens his flip phone and it makes the Star trek communicator chirp. A few times it actually happens in front of other Trek alumns and always followed by a pause where they give him a long look of exasperation.The exchange between Alan Shore (James Spader) and Denny Crane (William Shatner) on "Boston Legal":
Alan Shore: "This book? The Stain Upon the Sea? It's all about these sea lice."
Denny Crane: "Interesting."
Alan Shore: "They call them cling-ons."
Denny Crane: "Did you say Klingons?"
Also, his character's name was Matt Boyd, and he was drinking Amity Beer (an obvious reference to Amity Island in Jaws).In that venerable classic of cinema Piranha 3D, Richard Dreyfuss does a cameo essentially as Matt Hooper signing "Show Me the Way To Go Home" while fishing.

I saw that movie when it was released in 1987, and I was the only person in the theater who laughed at that exchange. No one else got the joke, including the friend I went with who is usually right on top of inside jokes like this. :facepalmFor the win: The Stakeout. Richard Dreyfuss and Emilio Estivez playing movie trivia. "This was no boating accident..." Richard has no idea.
Chris Lecce: [Chris and Bill are whiling away the time playing trivia questions] Okay, I got one, name the 16th President
Bill Reimers: I don't know
Chris Lecce: Here's a hint...
Bill Reimers: Abraham Lincoln.
Bill Reimers: [His questions are identifying quotes] Okay, "This was no boating accident!"
Chris Lecce: No idea
Bill Reimers: Man, you suck at this
It's more like an Easter egg, You are not supposed to get it. In contrast, William Shatner has gone on to do great television but he will always be Kirk. He is a living Allusion and he has made it work.No one else got the joke, including the friend I went with who is usually right on top of inside jokes like this. :facepalm
Yeah, and the whole "Affleck was the bomb in Phantoms" thing too.One of my favorite scenes of self parody was when Damon and Affleck were working on Goodwill Hunting 2: Hunting season in "jay and silent bob strike back.
The shots of Gus Van Sant counting money was priceless
I agree that exchange of dialogue was more like an Easter Egg, but if you weren't supposed to get it they wouldn't have included it in the movie.It's more like an Easter egg, You are not supposed to get it...
You would hate the recap episode of Martian Successor Nadesico, then. Many of the characters in the show watch an in-universe show called Gekigangar. The recap episode is the Gekigangar characters watching Nadesico. Until you get to the end, where you find out thatYeah, I have the same feeling. Like in Scream the kids are all watching the first Halloween movie. Then in Halloween: H20, they play Scream 2. So, in Scream, Halloween is just a movie. But in Halloween... Scream is just a movie.... so how can a universe that Halloween is just a movie appear in a universe that Scream is just a... ah screw it. It makes my head hurt!
