    • Peter: (to Punisher, while pointing up at the Green Goblin) Well Whaddya know that must be me up there.

    • Peter: (Trying to steer the Goblin Glider) It's no wonder Norman went insane; Trying to drive one of these things would make anyone nuts!

    • Harry: [delusional singing] Spider-Man and the Punisher, sitting in a tree. MJ, MJ, MJ, and me. [cackles] Punisher: [to Peter] You're friend, Osborn here, is a few pumpkins short of a full pie.

    Notes (3)

    • This episode (along with others) was listed on a Spider-Man DVD with the same name as the episode, however, in the DVD version, there is no background music.

    • Peter Parker makes a heroic change into Spider-Man (in the vein of Superman) after spotting the Green Goblin. But as he runs into an alley, instead of tearing open his shirt to reveal the costume -- since he's wearing a purple T-shirt -- he lifts it up to reveal the Spider-Man costume's bright colors and chest spider underneath.

    • Julie Bennet replaced Linda Gary as Aunt May because Linda passed away.

    Trivia (2)

    • How does Norman Osborne/Green Goblin survive this long in limbo without food and water? It's been either days or weeks. Wouldn't he die of starvation?

    • Throughout this episode you'll notice that the Goblin's glider changes from, small to big. This switching happens until the Green Goblin finally gets the large glider.

    Allusions (1)

    • Peter: Brilliant deduction Holmes!
      This is a reference to the fampus fictional detective Sherlock Holmes. Holmes was created by writer Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
