(MAJOR SPOILERS) Yeah this movie is infamous for using 9/11 as a plot twist since while there is some foreshadowing, it's otherwise a normal romance film up to the point where it's revealed that Tyler's dad works on the 101th floor of the World Trade Center meaning he was killed instantly in the attacks when he visits his dad at work

An early 2000s episode where Elmo is traumatized by seeing a fire burn down a building is clearly intended to teach children how to get over the trauma of 9/11-like situations.

There are several 9/11 references. On an alien planet, Rick purposely avoids blowing up two buildings that look nearly identical to the Twin Towers. There is also an episode where Rick attempts to hijack a plane and says "Allahu Akbar" while wearing a fake bomb.

Wendy mentions 9/11, and shows a photo of the twin towers with a plane shadow hovering over it. After the scene it zooms into that photo with plane sounds but it's probably more of a reference to flight 180 from the first movie. Still, 9/11 mentions, but I do not believe any photos of the planes actually crashing into the towers are shown.

Main character was a first responder and speaks about his experience in earlier seasons.
S3e5: flashbacks to the event, including a plane flying towards the towers, being in the rubble and being unable to save another first responder.
Another building has collapsed in the episode which has triggered the flashbacks

Not only that, but a large scale terrorist attack in the show can be seen as taking parallels to 9/11. Most depictions are in flashes though.

There are a few earlier scenes, specifically the scene in Philly, that is reminiscent of the 9/11 attack and a later sequence that references Flight 93. There are also nods to 9/11 conspiracy theories where Israel had foreknowledge of the attacks.
