Saturday Night Live: Alec Baldwin/Christina Aguilera (2006) (TV Episode)
referenced during the monologue and by Steve Martin
Hot Fuzz (2007)
The good cop (Nick Angel) walks past the corrupt villian cop's office (Frank Butterman). This scene is filmed very much like where Bill walks past Colin's office in The Departed. The good cop looks at the bad cop through the window of the office but the bad cop doesn't see him, the good cop knows he can't stop the bad cop at headquarters because he doesn't have the support of the rest of the police, so he simply walks past his office and leaves the building to confront him later. Shot and acted very similarly to the Departed.
