  • Trivia

    • At the diner, Dean looks out the back door and it's pouring rain out. However, when he goes out the front door a few seconds later, the rain has slowed to a very light drizzle.

    • At the very start, when Sam wakes up in the ghost town, there is a visible church-wouldn't it be sensible to automatically seek refuge there?

    • At the start of the episode, Dean is waiting in the car for Sam when the Yellow-Eyed Demon comes and gets Sam. The radio starts to flutter in and out which in countless past episodes has been a sign that there is a supernatural presence close. Why would he tap on the radio trying fix it?

  • Quotes

    • Sam: I think I know where we are now. Cold Oak, South Dakota, a town so haunted every single resident fled.
      Ava: Swell. Good to know we're somewhere so historical.

    • Ava: (panicking) My fiancé, Brady, if I've been missing for that long he must be freaking out! (notices Andy)
      Andy: Hey. Andy. Also freaking out.

    • Jake: So, we're soldiers in a demon war to bring on the apocalypse?
      Sam: When you put it like that…

    • Yellow Eyed Demon: You're awfully quiet, Sam... you're not mad at me, are you?

    • (Sam hears a noise and is about to turn the corner)
      Sam: Andy!?
      Andy: Sam... what are you doing here?
      Sam: I don't know.
      Andy: What am I doing here?
      Sam: I don't know, just...
      Andy: Where are we!?
      Sam: Andy, look calm down.
      Andy: I can't calm down. I just woke up in friggin' frontier land!
      Sam: What's the last thing you remember?
      Andy: Honestly... my fourth bong load.

    • Ava: Sam, psychic abilities and spoon-bending... it's one thing. But demons?

    • Sam: Andy, you still with me, or what?
      Andy: Give me a minute, I'm still working through "Demons are real."

    • Ava: I just stopped fighting it.
      Sam: Fighting what?
      Ava: Who we are, Sam.

    • Dean: (after Sam gets stabbed) Hey, hey... come here, come here, let me look at ya. Oh, hey look, its not even that bad.. It's not even that bad, alright? Sammy, Sam! Hey, listen to me, we are going to patch you up okay... You'll be as good as new. Huh? I'm going to take care of you, I'm going to take care of you! I gotcha. It's my job, right, watch after my pain-in-the-ass little brother.... Sam... Sam.... Sam! Sammy! (Sam dies) No.. no-n-n-n-n-no. Oh God. Oh God... Sam!

    • Andy: I've been practicing, training my brain like meditation, right, so now it's not just thoughts I can beam out, but images, too, like anything I want. It's like bam, people they see it. This one guy I know, total dick. I use it on him... gay porn. All hours of the day. It's just like, you should see the look on his face. (everyone's speechless)

    • Dean: (just had a vision) That was about as fun as getting kicked in the jewels.

    • Jake: Salt is a weapon?
      Sam: It's a brave new world.

    • Dean: Hey, don't forget the extra onions this time, huh?
      Sam: Dude, I'm the one who's gonna have to ride in the car with your extra onions.
      Dean: Hey, see if they've got any pie. Bring me some pie! I love me some pie.

    • Sam: I thought we were supposed to be...
      Yellow Eyed Demon: Soldiers, In a coming war? That's true. You are. But here's the thing. I don't need soldiers. I need "soldier." I just need the one.

    • Andy: (reading Dean's receipt) "D. Hasselhoff"?
      Sam: Yeah. That's Dean's signature. It... it's kind of hard to explain.

    • Sam: We gotta gear up for the next attack.
      Ava: Gear up? I'm not a soldier! I can't do that!
      Sam: If you wanna stay alive, you're gonna have to.

    • Sam: (to Lily, who accidentally killed her girlfriend.) I'm sorry. But I've lost people, too. I have a brother out there that could be dead, for all I know. But the best way out of this is to stick together.

    • Andy: I just woke up in freakin' Frontier Land.
      Frontierland is one of the "themed lands" at the many Magic Kingdom-style parks run by Disney around the world. It is themed after the American west in the 1800s, and home to cowboys and pioneers, ghost towns, plateaus and gold rushes.

    • Sam: It's a brave new world.
      Referring to Aldus Huxley's 1932 novel, Brave New World, that describes an ironic utopia achieved through reproductive technology and biological engineering. Huxley in turn borrowed the line from Shakespeare's The Tempest.

    • Signature: D. Hasselhoff
      References David Hasselhoff, whose most notable roles are Michael Knight on Knight Rider from 1982-86 and Lt. Mitch Buchannon on Baywatch from 1989-2000.
