The World of Monkey Island has lists of what they consider to be in-jokes in the Monkey Island games. (Some of them seem like just coincidences to me, though.)

In Indy3, in Indy's office on the right there is a Sam & Max Statue.

In MI1, on Monkey Island, one of the cannibal's statues by the Monkey Head is of Sam and Max.
There's also a portrait of Max (and Sam?) on the second floor of the mansion in Day of the Tentacle. In the past, I think.

Yes. In the past, but only of Max.

That was in many games.

This is from the LucasArts 20th Anniversary Trivia:

The phrase ''I'm selling these fine leather jackets'' first appeared in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. At the time, Lucasfilm was selling sheepskin bomber jackets to company employees, and the team decided to joke about this within the game. The joke reappeared in other games such as: The Secret of Monkey Island®, Monkey Island® 2: LeChuck's Revenge®, Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis™ and Full Throttle®.

But, I also found it in Curse of Monkey Island.

Maybe I'm just imagining things. At least the whole internet has nothing about a canister in DOTT, so I guess I'm just wrong.
