The Cable Guy (1996)

Overall, I thought this was a solid comedy. In particular, I liked how Jim Carrey's many talents/personalities are showcased in this film.

Haha. Just jerking your chain.
Is that fur on the steering wheel any reference to the furry Dumb and Dumber van?

Oh my God! Oh my God! My twin brother has been shot! I think it was an Asian gang or something... There was this guy, he looked Asian... and he was speaking another language, I'm pretty sure it was... Asian.

Hahaha. "What's with the cut cord?" "That's for effect."
References the fight between Kirk and Spock.
Apparently pressing his chest against the glass is a reference to a movie called Midnight Express (1978).
"If you build it, he will come." Field of Dreams (1989)

Sam Sweet / Stan Sweet (Ben Stiller)

Quotes Kevin Cosner from Waterworld (1995).
Sings the theme song from Cops.
References GoldenEye (1995): "It's like that movie, GoldenEye." I guess the part that follows might also be a reference to the movie.

Robin's Date (Owen Wilson)

You were never there for me were you mother? You expected Mike and Carol Brady to raise me! I'm the bastard son of Claire Huxtable! I am a Lost Cunningham! I learned the facts of life from watching The Facts of Life! Oh God!
References I Love Lucy: "Ricky Ricardo. Hur, hur, hur." (A portion of the theme song plays as he's airlifted out)
