    • Actor Tim Sampson, who plays the role of 'Chief' during Daisy's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest experience, is the son of Will Sampson, who played the equivalent role in the original film.

      Tim was playing the part originated by his father in a stage production of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest when the Spaced episode was being cast.


    • When Daisy is chatting to her temp agent about how she has two "conflicting sides" within her, it flashes to her good side, which is an apparent spoof of Sandy (the epitome of goody two shoes) from the popular movie Grease. Then when she mentions her bad side it flashes to Daisy dressed as Sandy when she wears that famous black attire and puts out the cigarette with her shoe.

    • The scene with the robots battling in a warehouse is a take off of the movie Fight Club.

    • At the restaurant Daisy temps at, there is a man washing dishes in the basement. This is a reference to a simliar character in the Kevin Costner film Waterworld.

    • At the end of the episode, when Daisy is leading a walk out, the Indian man steps up. This is like out of One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.

    • When Tim and Mike are working on the Robot at the beginning of the episode, it is like out of Robocop.

    • In the beginning of the episode, when the viewer is seeing Tim, Daisy, and Mike through the lens of the Robo-wars machine, it is like the scene in Robocop 1, where Robocop keeps coming online and seeing the engineers and designers talking about various parts of the machine.
