Another Terminatorreference, thermite's incredible heat was one of the few things used to destroy Terminator endoskeletons on Terminator: The Sarah Conner Chronicles.
After Chuck relearns kung fu from the Intersect, he says: "I know kung fu...again" in reference to the 1999 movie The Matrix, where Neo says the same thing after "learning" kung fu in a similar manner.
Morgan runs into Casey while crawling around in the air duct at the Buy More. Morgan is wearing a tank top and has bare feet.
Casey: (to Morgan) Where are your shoes?
When Morgan walks into the back store room to save Casey, Jeff and Lester, he has a bandage around his foot with blood all over it and has taped a gun to his back. He has his hands up and says he surrenders, then without warning he tries to quickly pull the gun off his back while saying, Yipee-Kai-Aye.
These scenes are a parody to the 1988 movie Die Hard staring Bruce Willis.
Mary: Come with me if you want to live.
