Dick's Big Giant Headache (1) - S4-E23

Trivia: When the Solomons meet the Big Giant Head at the airport and ask how his flight was, he says that it was horrible because when he looked out the airplane window, he saw something on the wing of the plane. Dick responds that the same thing happened to him. William Shatner appeared in the 1960's Twilight Zone episode "Nightmare at 20,000 Feet" in which a gremlin tried to destroy the wing of a plane. John Lithgow appeared in "Twilight Zone: The Movie" playing the same character in the same situation.

Indecent Dick - S4-E8

Trivia: When Don and Dick are lamenting about their respective girlfriends posing nude for photos, they unwittingly recite some of the chorus lyrics to the song "Centerfold" by the J. Geils Band. A portion of the song's intro can also be heard during one of the episode's transitional animatics.

Tricky Dick - S3-E3

Trivia: Dick's rant about his perceived evils of rock music is identical to Reverend Moore's (also played by John Lithgow) opposition to dancing from the film "Footloose."

Dick on a Roll - S3-E12

Trivia: Dick is never seen walking in this episode and is only in an upright position when he moves from the chair in the lounge room to the wheelchair in the opening scene. This is because John Lithgow hurt his ankle playing tennis, and the episode was written to allow him to be in a wheelchair for the entire episode.
