Feel the Night - S3-E9

Trivia: Daniel stumbles in on his daughter kissing Miguel. He then suggests to her he would like that they the door open, to which his daughter replies "come on dad, it's not 1984." The original Karate Kid was released in 1984.

30 Rock (2006)

The Beginning of the End - S7-E1

Trivia: Jack mentions that Jonathan was able to come back to 30 Rock because "the grass was not greener on the other side." This was a subtle shot at the show Weeds. The actor playing Jonathan (Maulik Pancholy) was on that show, which was about selling marijuana (grass). When Weeds was canceled, Pancholy came back to resume his role on 30 Rock.

A Time to Kill (1996)

Trivia: In one of the courtroom scenes, the judge refers to Sandra Bullock as "Lois Lane." Around the same time this film was being made, Bullock was heavily considered to play the role of Lois Lane in Tim Burton's Superman Lives, but the movie was canceled just weeks before shooting.

The Majestic (2001)

Other mistake: At the welcome home party, Peter/Luke is at the piano with the female piano teacher. She is helping him remember how to play a song. Problem is, she is playing the keys right in front of her, and he is playing the keys right in front of him (you can tell by their hand placement and where their eyes are looking), but they are both playing in the same octave. His notes should have sounded at least an octave higher. Furthermore, when he starts playing the jazzy sounding tune, the keys we hear are very low and would have been to the left of the teacher. He would have had to reach across her to reach those keys, but instead he is playing the keys right in front of him.

Breaking Bad (2008)

Peekaboo - S2-E6

Continuity mistake: At the very beginning of the episode, Skinny gives Jesse the address on where he can find the junkies who robbed them. When we see the piece of paper, the street name is Pampas. When Jesse gets out of the car, we see the real street signs, and that the house is on 13th and Marquette.

Breaking Bad (2008)

Granite State - S5-E15

Trivia: When Robert Forster (Ed, or "The Disappearer") stops by the cabin to drop off supplies to Walt, he tells Walt that his (Walt's) house has since become somewhat of a tourist attraction, and a fence has been built around it. Funny thing is, in real life that is exactly what has happened to that house since Breaking Bad. Tourists come to that house and take photos, and the owners have had to put up a fence to keep people off their property. Before the fence was put up, some people went so far as to throw a pizza on the roof, like Walt did in a previous episode.

Boomerang (1992)

Trivia: When they are in the board meeting going over the perfume names, Grace Jones whacks Eddie Murphy in the face with a pad of paper. According to the commentary, this was not scripted. Grace Jones ad-libbed the bit, really hitting Eddie, and his reaction is genuine.

Heat (1995)

Other mistake: When Hanna is tailing McCauley in the helicopter, he is informed that McCauley is headed east on the 105. When Hanna pulls McCauley over, you can see the highway sign saying that they are on the westbound 105.

Trivia: When Seth goes into the motel lobby to get a room, we see a shot of Richie waiting in the car. If you look to the far left of the dashboard, you can see a reflection of Red Apple cigarettes, the brand of cigarettes used in all of Quentin Tarantino's movies.

Trivia: Anthony Daniels once again appears as C-3PO, making him the only actor to be in all Star Wars films. Similarly, C-3PO and R2-D2 are the only characters to appear in all 9 Skywalker saga films. Sadly R2-D2's original actor, Kenny Baker, passed away in 2016.

Cobra Kai (2018)

Take a Right - S2-E6

Trivia: Minor spoiler: In season 2, Johnny reunites with his old Cobra Kai buddies. One of them, Tommy, has been ill for some time. They go on one last ride together, and by the morning Tommy has died. Robert Garrison, who plays Tommy, went through something very similar. Robert had been ill for some time, and got together with the actors for one last reunion in this episode. He sadly passed away on 9/27/19, just months after the show aired.

Jackie Brown (1997)

Factual error: Ordell's house is set in Hermosa Beach. In the scenes that you can see out of his living room window, there is the beach, and a bike path approximately halfway between the house and the ocean. The bike path in the movie is a good distance from the house, but in actuality the Hermosa Beach bike path is right in front of the houses. There is also a rock formation seen outside of the window, which is not in Hermosa Beach either.
