Are You Being Served? (1972) (TV Series)

Life of Brian (1979)

Gremlins (1984)
In the Pirate Captain's cabin, to the left of the door, one of the Pirate rules is, "No matter how much he cries, no matter how much he begs, never feed him after midnight." It's partially obscured, but that's the gist.
Doctor Who (2005) (TV Series)
Art Director Matt Sanders posted on the Doctor Who forum Gallifrey Base on March 29th 2012, saying "As a long-standing aficionado of the TARDIS's police box shell, I've sneaked some familiar six-paned windows into several of the sets. I think I did about half a dozen, though I don't know how many made it into the final edit... Sooooo... (as a little easter-egg-hunt), when you see the film, keep a lookout for TARDIS windows, and let us know if you find them."
