Good, good list. How are you defining "Poisoned Fruit"?

What's the Man from UNCLE link to NCIS? I gather it's through David McCallum.

I'm not sure some of those actually occurred in 2005 proper, such as the one with Battlestar Galactica and Firefly, which really happened back in the BSG miniseries in 2003. It's just that you didn't discover it until 2005.

WSN is right - I read Thom's entry at his fantastic Crossovers & Spinoffs page without noticing that he was referring to the mini-series and not a discovery he made this year.

As to poisoned fruit, it's a crossover that ends up having a Zonk! in it at some point. Like Dayna portraying herself on 'All My Children', but then talking about it on 'Extra' that night. Or Jiminy Glick hosting 'Larry King Live', but then King has to show footage of Martin Short putting on the fat suit.

Finally, on 'NCIS', somebody asked Harmon's character Gibbs who Ducky reminded him of. Without missing a beat, all he said was "Illya Kuryakin".

Taken within the context of the show's reality, I interpret that to mean that he at some point in time knew the UNCLE agent.

So what's the poison for Passions? From what I read about it, the Passions/Nanny & the Professor crossover sounded pretty clever.

I'm not convinced it was supposed to be really Phoebe Figalilly. From what I saw, the doll transformed into the Nanny was thus a "mock". Something in the image of.... (I got the term from an encyclopedia on fairies.)

Of course, this still infers that Phoebe Figalilly actually did exist, so I'm still of two minds on the subject.

I realize this may be hard to believe as some people think I don't have any mind at all!
