Mallrats (1995)
The characters Brodie and Suzanne the orangutan were first seen in Mallrats.

Further references include:
1. Brodie's enlarged Variety cover behind the counter of his comic book store explains his leave from The Tonight Show, a nod to the ending of Mallrats.
2. Brodie's joke about chocolate covered pretzels is a callback to his stinkpalm of Mr. Svenning.
3. Jay's comment that Silent Bob is "the guy who makes the blueprints" refers to the fact that Bob drew up their stage sabotaging plans at the Eden Prairie Mall.
4. Jay's exclamation "Flee, Fatass, flee" is a take on "Fly, Fatass, fly" when Bob dressed in Batman garb to bring the stage down.
5. Toward the end of the movie, there is a stagehand carrying a small piece of stage, perhaps a callback to the similar stagehands seen in Mallrats joked about on the movie commentary track because none of the pieces looked large enough to actually be part of the stage.
6. Alyssa makes a met-reference about Bluntman & Chronic being a better movie than Mallrats.

Non-Askewinerse

The title of the movie and its logo are adapted from the Star Wars sequel.

Also, Mark Hamill, who plays Cock-Knocker, alludes to his role as Luke Skywalker when Jay cuts off his hand and he sighs, "Not again."

The intro titles that feature "A long time ago..." refers to the series' famous opening. Jay also spreads the rumor that Dante and Randal got hitched dressed as Storm Troopers. Holden makes the comment that a Jay and Silent Bob movie is the worst idea since "Greedo shooting first," a nod to Lucas's ill-received re-edits to the movie. Finally, the characters duel with "bong sabers" at the end of the film, inspired by light sabers from the Star Wars series.

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon are "those guys from Good Will Hunting." Later in the movie, Affleck and Damon are on the set of the movie's sequel, Good Will Hunting 2: Hunting Season. The two actors (playing themselves) refer to doing a movie as a pay back for a friend. This is a sideways nod to Kevin Smith who brought the Good Will Hunting script to Miramax.

Magnolia (1999)
Someone going by the handle "Magnolia-Fan" posts a venomous take-down of the Jay and Silent Bob characters.

This is also an in-joke because Kevin Smith caused a minor uproar on his own message board when he wrote a negative review of Magnolia.
