The characters Dante, Randal, Willam, and the titular Jay & Silent Bob were first seen in Clerks.

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."
Jason's rating:
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.

When discussing the finer points of Morris Day & The Time, the band is referred as those guys from Purple Rain.

Jason's rating:
People who added this item 1564 Average listal rating (919 ratings) 5.5 IMDB Rating 5.9
Brodie insists Miramax went downhill after they produced this movie.
Holden's studio is called Potzers, Inc. in reference to the term for a weak chess player used in this movie. (It was also referenced in Chasing Amy.)
People who added this item 3983 Average listal rating (2604 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8.3
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.
Jason's rating:
People who added this item 215 Average listal rating (141 ratings) 5 IMDB Rating 5.4
Phantoms (1998)
Affleck was da bomb in Phantoms, Yo.

This saying also recalls a conversation on the director's commentary track for Mallrats.

Jay and Bob are "a couple of stoners who spout dumb-ass catch-phrases like a third rate Cheech and Chong or Bill and Ted," according to Magnolia-Fan.

People who added this item 2844 Average listal rating (1686 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8
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.

Spartacus (1960)

People who added this item 2173 Average listal rating (1399 ratings) 4.8 IMDB Rating 5.1
Scooby-Doo (2002)
Jay dreams of meeting the Scooby gang. Though clearly a reference to the cartoon, this movie was also in production at the time.
Jason's rating:
People who added this item 5189 Average listal rating (3569 ratings) 7.1 IMDB Rating 7.5
Batman (1989)
The Bluntman & Chronic characters are an obvious homage to Batman and Robin, but Jay's grappling hook scene as he breaks into Provasic is a clear visual reference to the Tim Burton movie.
Jason's rating:
People who added this item 1773 Average listal rating (1180 ratings) 7.6 IMDB Rating 8
Jay's nightmare of a monkey apocalypse takes several cues from Planet of the Apes, including apes riding on horseback and the destroyed Statue of Liberty on a beach.
When Bob gets stuck in the sewer pipe, Jay says he's just like WInnie the Pooh.
Jason's rating:
People who added this item 2049 Average listal rating (1403 ratings) 7.2 IMDB Rating 7.8
The Fugitive (1993)
The stand-off with Federal Wildlife Marshal Willenholly bears a striking resemblance to a similar scene in the Harrison Ford flick. Also, Provasic is also the name of a pharmaceutical company in both movies.

Norma Rae (1979)
After Jay talks about his union's problems securing health care, Pumpkin Escobar responds: "Norma Rae like a mother fucker."
