Examples of recurring in-jokes or motifs in film and television? Examples I can think of are the appearances of "1138" in George Lucas's movies (referring, of course, to THX-1138
), and the numbers 1013 and 1121 (and, subsequently, the times 10:13 and 11:21) in The X-Files
, being the birthdates of Chris Carter and his wife.
