  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (14)

    • Missouri: I haven't been back inside, but I've been keeping an eye on the place and it's been quiet. No sudden deaths, no freak accidents. Why is it acting up now? Sam: I don't know. But Dad going missing, and Jessica dying, and now this house all happening at once, it just feels like something's starting. Dean: That's a comforting thought.

    • Missouri: You see, all those years ago real evil came to you. It walked this house. That kind of evil leaves wounds, and sometimes wounds get infected.

    • Dean: What is all this?
      Missouri: Crossroads dirt, few other odds and ends. We're gonna put them in the west and east sides of the house; it'll repel the spirit.
      Dean: Punching holes in the drywall. Jenny's gonna love that.
      Missouri: She'll live.

    • Dean: All right. I've been cruisin' some websites and I think I found some candidates for our next gig. A fishing trawler found off the coast of Cali, its crew vanished. And, uh, we got some cattle mutilations in west Texas. Hey! Am I boring you with this hunting-evil stuff? Sam: No, I'm listening. Keep going. Dean: And here, a Sacramento man shot himself in the head. Three times. Any of these things blowin' up your skirt, pal?

    • Missouri: Sam, oh honey. I'm sorry about your girlfriend. And your father... he's missing. Sam: How'd you know all that? Missouri: Well, you were just thinking it, just now. Dean: Where is he? Is he okay? Missouri: I don't know. Dean: Don't know? You're supposed to be a psychic, right? Missouri: Boy, you see me sawing some bony tramp in half? You think I'm a magician? I may be able to read thoughts and sense energies in a room but I can't just pull facts out of thin air.

    Notes (5)

    • Eric Kripke is particularly proud of "Home" because of the plumbing scene: "My favorite scene all year long is the guy grinding up his hand in the garbage disposal. We had the shot of underneath the pipe, where you saw the goo going into the bucket, and I laughed because I'm a sick puppy."

    • International Airdates: Denmark: March 5, 2006 on TV3 The Netherlands: August 31, 2008 on NET5

    • In the promotionals for this episode, this episode was billed as "The Journey Home."

    • First appearance of Dean's and Sam's dad. (without counting the "past" when they escaped the house.)

    • Loretta Devine, (who guest-stars in "Home") jokes about Jared and Jensen: "Those guys are just so bad. You never know what they're going to do, and you can't keep your eyes on both of them at once!"

    Trivia (11)

    • When Joe (the plumber) takes his hand out of the sink hole, the faucet is facing toward the left of the sink. The shot when he puts his hand back in, the faucet facing toward the center of the sink. The next shot while his arm is back in the sink hole, the faucet is back toward the left.

    • When Sam and Dean run to the house to save Jenny and the kids, they do not have to bust the door to get inside. If she is in bed for the night, why is her front door unlocked?

    • Just after the young boy gets into the fridge, there is a shot of the safety latch securing the door to the fridge closed. But in the next and final shot of the scene, the fridge stands with the safety latch obviously open as the scene fades to black.

    • When Dean is running to the house with the ax, there is a visible shadow of the camera and the cameraman on the grass.

    • When Dean and Sam are talking, just before Dean makes the call to dad, Sam is sitting on the trunk lid and Dean is standing facing the other way. Sam, then, looks at Dean as if he is standing beside him. The way they are both positioned there is no way Sam would be looking at his brother when he is looking in that direction. Dean would really be on the other side of him. So, you can tell those are two different versions of the same scene.

    Allusions (2)

    • Dean: I mean first you tell me that you've got the Shining. Referencing the 1980 Stanley Kubrick film, The Shining, starring Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrance. Dean is comparing Sam to the character of Danny Torrance, who had a gift of clairvoyance and telepathy. The film was based on the 1977 book by Stephen King of the same title, though the screenplay changed the story in several ways.

    • Dean: Missouri did her whole Zelda Rubinstein thing... This is in reference to the 1982 movie Poltergeist, in which Zelda Rubinstein played the part of the clairvoyant named Tangina Barrons.
