This saved money as opposed to creating more original ones for filming. This is mentioned in the commentary.

When Ted steals a cellphone to call Johnny for help, the ringtone on Johnny's phone is the Knight Rider (1982) theme, which is the actual ringtone Seth MacFarlane uses on his own cellphone in real life. In the blooper reel of A Million Ways to Die In the West (2014), during the climactic showdown scene, MacFarlane's cellphone, which he had in the back pocket of his costume, went off twice and the audience can hear the theme playing clearly. Four actors and actresses from this movie also starred in A Million Ways to Die In the West (2014).

The scene where Sam plays the guitar while singing in the countryside, is similar to the film The Sound of Music (1965), where Maria does the same thing to the van Trapp children. The Sound of Music (1965) is Seth MacFarlane's all time favorite movie. In fact, Seth loved the film so much, Family Guy (1999) played cutaway gags based on the film.

In the court scene, where Ted looks to use "Beetlejuice" to get out of trouble, he actually says Beetlejuice six times, which is the same as in the movie, where Geena Davis says Beetlejuice three times to make him appear, and three times again to make him disappear. This would explain why it didn't work.

The movie is a mini tribute and reunion of Star Trek. Sir Patrick Stewart, who played Captain Jean-Luc Picard on The Next Generation, is the narrator, Michael Dorn, who played Worf in Star Trek: The Next Generation, and Deep Space Nine, is Rick. He also dresses as his old character in the Comic Con scenes. Nana Visitor, who played Major Kira in Deep Space Nine, is the adoption social worker, Ron Canada the judge, appeared in Star Trek: Voyager and Deep Space Nine as an episode alien, Bill Smitrovich, who played Frank, appeared in Deep Space Nine (S3,E11, E12). During a New York City street scene, Ted's attorney erroneously refers to dressed up Star Wars zealots as Star Trek fans. The tribute comes to a crescendo in the final Comic Con scenes, when various Star Trek characters, separated by series and centuries, are fighting each other. This culminates with a mock up of the Enterprise-D falling and threatening to hit Ted.

In both "Ted" movies, you hear a main theme song from two very popular movie franchises. In Ted (2012), you hear "The Imperial March" from Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) when Johnny's cell phone goes off. Here, the main Jurassic Park (1993) theme can be heard when the main characters stumble across a large field of marijuana.

Ted going to court to appeal being 'human' could be a parody to Kramer v Kramer as both films have a protagonist named Ted who go to court to earn the right being 'human' and winning a custody battle respectively. In both films the characters originally lose their cases but each get a happy ending as Ted in this film earns his rights on being 'human' while Ted Kramer in the latter film is given custody of his son by his ex wife. Plus both characters have their marriages ended although it is implied Ted in this film remarried Tami Lynn.
