- Actor Allusion:
- Hey, It's That Guy!:
- Jon Gries, who plays Broots, has shown up in dozens of HITG roles.
- Jarod's first love interest, Nia, is the girl from Predator.
- Miss Parker's father is also the father of Lois Lane and Jean Lundegaard, as well as the guy who sent Tom Hanks to save Private Ryan.
- Jarod's father Major Charles is James Bond.
- The old con in "Prison Story" is Tom Robinson (or, for younger viewers, Joseph Sisko). Also, Worf as an army colonel in "Survival".
- The Sheriff in "Mirage" is Lizzie's dad and Lewis.
- The serial killer in "Once in a Blue Moon" is Murdoc. No surprise there.
- The Elvis Impersonator in "Curious Jarod" is Colonel Campbell.
- Retroactive Recognition:
- Sydney is Lodz.
- Kyle is Michael Westen.
- Mr. Lyle is Mike Decker.
- Jake Lloyd appeared in about half a dozen episodes (in flashbacks, as young Angelo) before being cast as Anakin Skywalker in The Phantom Menace.
- "Homefront" had a rather nasty father who has been a rather nasty person in a number of other things (including the vampire businessman who gets defenestrated in the first episode of Angel), and his ex-wife is Jan.
- Jarod's clone is Kevin Fischer and Ian Thomas.
- In the episode "Scott Free", Scott's son is Drake before he met Josh.
- The Centre contractor in the episode "Over the Edge" went on to become Holland Manners.
- The Vietnamese immigrant in "Collateral Damage" is Jin Kwon.
- The property developer in "Gigolo Jarod" is Elisa Maza and Allison Blake.
- The young man Jarod helps in "Toy Surprise" is Francis from Malcolm in the Middle.
- One of Jarod's students in "School Daze" is young Jack and Luke Girardi.
- The two-parter "Bloodlines" stars Haley Joel Osment, in a Not-So-Small Role. Jarod must identify which one of three children is a genius. Since two of the children are unknown child actors and the last one was the lead in The Sixth Sense the year after appearing on this show, it's not hard for a post-1999 audience to guess which one it is.
- A behind-the-scenes example: Javier Grillo-Marxuach was a member of the writing team for the first season.
- Janitor Kenny, whose murder may have been a catalyst for Jarod's escape, is Dr. Phlox
- Mr. White is played by Jigsaw.
- Lounge singer Billie in "Pool" is Sydney Bristow/Elektra Natchios.
