Goof - In the beginning of this episode when the firefighters open the wardrobe and discover the skeleton inside there are two small fans that can be seen behind the skeleton. These were probably used to blow out the smoke and make the skeleton's hair and dress move.
Since Angela changed her name to "Angela" legally, according to the private investigator and Angela's statement in "Mummy in the Maze"), it is unnecessary for her to tell anyone what name is on her birth certificate.
Goof: The pentagram Brennan draws on the X-ray is upside down, having two points up, rather than one. This reverses the meaning of the symbol, making it a representation of evil, commonly used in satanism and black magic. Additionally, Sweets claims that the pentagram is an ancient Wiccan symbol representing solidarity and sisterhood. This statement is wrong on several different counts. Firstly, Wicca is a relatively new religion, based on the traditions of witchcraft. None of the ancient practitioners would regard themselves as wiccans. Secondly, the pentagram has also been a meaningful symbol in several other religions, such as Egyptian mythology and Christianity. Thirdly, in contemporary wicca, it is mostly seen as a symbol of the four elements being presided over by spirit. It is commonly used as a sign of magic, good and protection, but not usually tied to solidarity per se.
In this episode Hodgins reveals that he has been carrying Angela's wedding ring in his wallet ever since their first failed wedding (during the second season finale, "Stargazer in a Puddle").
The "wedding ring" that Angela produces for Hodgins is actually a body jewelry ring.
It is revealed in this episode that Hodgins' full name is: Jack Stanley Hodgins IV.
Hodgins: (vowing) Angela, or whatever your name is ... I'm your guy.
Clark: (to jailed Hodgins and Angela) Nice cell.
Hodgins: It's not much but, we call it home.
Angela: Yeah we're thinking of redoing the kitchen.
Booth: So, witch hunt tonight?
Bones: All right.
Booth: You bring the candles, I'll bring the broomstick.
Hodgins: Yeah, yeah, I've had several martinis, some absinthe and a barrel of mead.
Sheriff Abrams: License and registration, please.
Angela: He was kidding. He's just, being an idiot.
Booth: (after the feet of the dead body curl up) Whoa, okay. I don't like it when dead things move.
Sheriff Abrams: (wheeling in a very old computer) Your lab called. This computer may not be state of the art, (enthusiastically) but we got the Internet!
Hodgins: (sarcastically) Sure! Let's uh, throw some coal in that thing and fire it up!
Angela: (while Hodgins is giving her a massage) Oh, thank you God! Oh!
Hodgins: God is a little formal. Hodgins is fine.
Angela: Do you ever wonder what happened to us? (pause) On the day we broke up?
Hodgins: Yeah, every day. I run through that conversation, word for word.
Angela: Me too.
Hodgins: You said, "All you had to do was trust me."
Angela: And you said, "Hey, you're the one who's leaving."
Hodgins: And then you said, "You're the one that isn't stopping me."
Angela: And I left.
Angela: I wish I hadn't.
Hodgins: The biggest regret of my life is I didn't stop you.
Sweets: So, I've been thinking about dead cats.
Bones: That ... doesn't seem like a good use of your time.
Sweets: I wanna work on the case.
Booth: What are you gonna do, cast a spell?

This is the first episode written by Kathy Reichs (though she was involved with the story of the "Pilot" episode), the forensic anthropologist whose novels Bones is inspired by.
Hodgins: (after seeing the red slipper-clad feet of human remains curl) We're not in Kansas anymore.
This is an allusion to the book "The Wizard of Oz," which was made into an iconic 1939 movie of the same name. In the movie there is a scene where the feet of the dead Wicked Witch of the East curl up after her ruby slippers are removed from her feet. The line "We're not in Kansas anymore" is a very well-known line in the movie uttered by the character Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland).
Later on in the Bones episode, Clark makes another reference to "The Wizard of Oz" when he mentions the Wicked Witches of the West and East.
Angela: (regarding a bug in amber) So if we remove the DNA we could recreate dinosaurs, right?
This is an allusion to Jurassic Park, the 1990 science fiction novel written by Michael Crichton in which a billionaire and a team of scientists create an amusement park of cloned dinosaurs using the genetic material found in ancient mosquitoes that fed on dinosaur blood and were preserved in amber. The book was made into a movie (directed by Steven Spielberg) in 1993.
Title: The Witch in the Wardrobe
This is likely a reference to the book by C.S. Lewis called the "The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe" in which a girl enters a wardrobe and discovers that it is a portal to another world in which an evil witch rules a land called Narnia.
