  • Trivia

    • The teacher has blood on his head when they took him from the school, and should obviously have a head wound. However, when you next see the teacher in the guys' kitchen, he has no visible wound.

    • The Devil says that Jordy can turn invisible. However, several times Sam swings at him and would have to have hit Jordy if he had just turned invisible a second earlier. When Jordy grabs Andi and goes outside, he also goes through a door without opening it, which would be impossible if he simply turned invisible. More accurately, Jordy is teleporting.

  • Quotes

    • Nina: This is so funny.
      Ben: The Deer Hunter isn't really a comedy.

    • Nina: Ben, no. Ben, he's a demon. He eats guys like you for breakfast and sometimes lunch. Mostly for dinner.

    • Sprong: Son, I have a lot of work to do and very little time to take a trip down memory lane with a couple of technical college rejects.
      Sock: Didn't even apply.

    • Sprong: Ben Gonzalez. I'd recognize that skinny frame anywhere. You realize your lifelong dream of becoming a woman yet?

    • Sock: I am bringing joy into the lives of all these little orphans.
      Sam: I think, I think they're probably not orphans.
      Sock: Why do you have to rain all over my orphan parade, Sam? Why?

    • Sock: We shall rebuild it, Benjamin. We have all the technology right here at our fingertips. We shall make it better than it was before. Faster, stronger, demoner-proofer.
      Ben: I have no idea what you're talking about but you seem so excited so I'm in no matter how stupid.
      Sock: Very stupid.
      Ben: More in.

    • Sam: Nina was supposed to watch Sprong.
      Andi: Here's a note. "Ate the last of the meat loaf. Went out for a moose. XOXO Nina."
