    • Dean: You know, uh, the Coyote chases the Road Runner.
      Referencing the animated Warner Brothers characters. The Coyote is typically seen hunting his nemesis, the Road Runner. The Coyote never speaks, and hunts the Road Runner primarily by ordering implausibly complex equipment from the Acme Corporation. Inevitably, the seemingly indestructible Coyote ends up squashed, burnt, or at the bottom of a canyon after falling.

    • Dean: Maybe it's some--some crazy god who watched too much Robot Chicken.
      Robot Chicken is a comedy television series created by actor Seth Green which airs on Cartoon Network during the Adult Swim programming block. The series features action figures and other toys in stop-motion animated sketches.

    • Dean: Look, man, I hate those flying-ass monkeys as much as you do.
      Referencing the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz, based on the novels by L. Frank Baum. Margaret Hamilton plays the Wicked Witch of the West, the main villainess of the movie. The flying monkeys are her personal servants.

    • Dean: So this animaniac can step through walls?
      Referencing the animated WB series (initially on Fox) which consisted of a number of characters referred to collectively as "Animaniacs." The core characters were Yakko, Wakko, and Dot, Warner Brother characters from the 30s who were trapped in the studio water tower for 60 years. Other characters included Pinky & The Brain, Skippy Squirrel, Dr. Otto Scratchansniff, and dozens more.

    • Dean: You go Invisible Girl and keep an eye on him.
      Referencing Sue Storm, the comic book character first introduced in Fantastic Four #1 (Nov. 1961), created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. After being exposed to cosmic radiation along with her fiance Reed, friend Ben Grimm, and brother Johnny, Sue gains the power to (initially) turn invisible. She eventually gains the power to generate invisible force fields with her mind as well, making her a far more useful member of the Fantastic Four.

      I loved the overall tribute to the Looney Toons jokes. if this episode has only one signature scene, it has to go to Cass interrogating the cat and the cat calling him a 'dumbass'.

    • dman_dustin Dec 01, 2012

      LOL, the cat saying "Dumbass" was the best part, along with Cass trying to be a hunter.

    • MajLorne Dec 09, 2012

      lmao! I totally agree. Classic!

      This was a fun episode - Cas and Dean were just great in it. It felt much more like seasons 4/5 ... if you discount Sam's lame flashbacks. They couldn't keep it that way though, could they? Cas is so adorable when he is trying to play hunter.
