References 

Saturday Night Live (1975) (TV Series)

Malcolm X (1992)
In the "Thanksgiving" short, the pilgrim Michael Showalter explains his discovery of Plymouth Rock: "Actually, we didn't land on Plymouth Rock. Plymouth Rock landed on us!". This is a famous line from the Spike Lee film "Malcolm X".
The State (1993) (TV Series)
in the short "Pizza," David Wain makes very overt State references ("I wanna dip my balls in it!" "I wanna see the monkies do it!" - catch phrases from the show)
Touched by an Angel (1994) (TV Series)
In the 'Whiffleball' segment, as the angel is raping David, she tells him "You ever heard of 'Touched By an Angel?' Well, this is 'Fucked By an Angel!'"
Who Wants to Be a Millionaire (1999) (TV Series)
At the end of the 'Whiffleball' segment, the boys quote Regis Philbin and laugh hysterically. This is meant to mock the sudden popularity of the obviously faddy "is that your final answer?" quote.
Bicentennial Man (1999)
In a very dated joke, a character ironically makes a reference to wanting to get tickets to the movie Bicentennial Man.

The A-Team (1983) (TV Series)
A montage is shown during the 'Raking Leaves' short, playing the 'A-Team' theme song during it. It is meant to be a bizarre spoof of the show's opening sequence.
The Big Chill (1983)
The short "College Reunion" is very much a parody of The Big Chill. The audio commentary on the DVD confirms this.
Die Hard (1988)
The short "Office Party" contains a parody of "Die Hard." specific scenes and aspects of the film are parodied (Bruce Willis taking of his shoes, the "are you the bad guy?" scene, etc)
Run Lola Run (1998)
A chase scene in the short "Poker" uses similar music. DVD audio commentary indicates that it is specifially parodying this movie
