At 29.50, when the Impala can be seen driving along the road at night, two people are in the front of the car (Sam & Dean). However, when the Impala comes closer to the camera it is obvious that it is a body double, not Jensen driving the car.
Trivia: In the beginning, when the Impala is reintroduced in its spiffy new form, the song, "Back in Black" by AC/DC is playing in the background. It is also the first song Dean plays on the original Impala in the pilot episode after the brothers are reunited.
In the scene where Gordon grabs Sam's arm at the end of the episode, Sam's arms are by his side but when Gordon goes to grab his arm, both of Sam's arm's are held up in a surrender-type way.
The hospital Sam and Dean visits is named Candler County Hospital; There is no Candler County in Montana. Furthermore, the hospital employee has "North Montana" printed on his badge; Red Lodge is in southern Montana.
When Gordon is torturing the vampire, she seems to be choking but vampires don't breathe.
When Gordon kicks Dean, he lands on and breaks the table. Half of the table is sticking up in the air, but in the next shot, that half of the table is just gone.
When Dean beheads the vampire on the pier, blood splatters onto his face. When he turns to face Sam and Gordon, he has a lot more blood on his face than before.
Gordon: You know why I love this life?
Gordon: It's all black and white. There's no maybe. You find the bad thing, kill it. Most people spend their lives in shades of gray. "Is this right, is that wrong?" Not us.
(the brothers examine victim's severed head)
Dean: Wait, lift her lip up again.
Sam: What? You want me to throw up, is that it?
Dean: No, no, no. I think I saw something. (opens victim's mouth) What is that, a hole?
Sam: It's a tooth.
Dean: Sam, that's a fang. A retractable set of vampire fangs, you gotta be kidding me.
Sam: Well, this changes things.
Dean: You think?
Gordon: Sam, Dean, come on in.
Dean: Hey, Gordon, what's going on?
Gordon: Just poisoning Lenore here with some dead man's blood. She's gonna tell us where all her little friends are, aren't you. Want to help?
Dean: Look, man…
Gordon: Grab a knife, I was just about to start in on the fingers.
Eli: Why are we explaining ourselves to this killer?
Eli: We choke on cow's blood so that none of them have to suffer. And tonight, they murdered Conrad, and they celebrated.
Lenore: Eli, that's enough.
Sam: Yeah, Eli, that's enough.
Sam: Look, I'm not going to bring you guys down. I'm just gonna go back to the motel.
Dean: You sure?
Dean: Sammy! Remind me to beat that buzz-kill out of you later, all right?
Dean: Did you check out that Barker farm?
Gordon: It's a bust. Just a bunch of hippy freaks. Though they could kill you with that patchouli smell alone.
Dean: What part of "vampires" don't you understand, Sam? If it's supernatural, we kill it. End of story. That's our job.
Sam: No, Dean, that is not our job. Our job is hunting evil. And if these things aren't killing people, they're not evil.
Sam: Ready to go, Dean?
Dean: Not yet. (to Gordon) I guess this is goodbye. Well, it's been real. (punches Gordon right off the chair) Okay, I'm good now. We can go.
Sam: After what happened to Mom, Dad did the best he could.
Dean: I know he did, but the man wasn't perfect. And the way he raised us, to hate those things and, man, I hate 'em. I do. When I killed that vampire at the mill I didn't even think about it. Hell, I even enjoyed it.
Sam: You didn't kill Lenore.
Dean: No, but every instinct told me to. I was going to kill her. I was going to kill them all.
Sam: Yeah, Dean, but you didn't. And that's what matters.
Lenore: Survival. No deaths, no missing locals. No reason for people like you to come looking for people like us. We blend in. Our kind is practically extinct. Turns out we weren't quite as high up the food chain as we'd imagined.
Dean: Clock me one.
Dean: Come on, hit me. I won't even hit you back. Let's go.
Dean: Let's go, you get a freebie. Come on, hit me!
Sam: You look like you just went twelve rounds with a block of cement, Dean. I'll take a raincheck.
Dean: All right, Open it.
Sam: You open it.
Dean: (to Gordon) I might be like you, and I might not. But you're the one tied up right now.
Sheriff: What newspaper did you say you worked for?
Dean: World Weekly News.
Sam: Weekly World News.
Sam: Weekly World News.
Dean: Wor... I'm new.
Sheriff: Get out of my office.
Sam: (talking to Dean) Give you a couple of severed heads and a pile of dead cows and you're Mr. Sunshine.
Dean: He was one of those guys. Took some terrible beatings ... just kept coming. So you're always thinking to yourself, he's indestructible. He'll always be around, nothing can kill my dad. And just like that ... he's gone. Can't talk about this to Sammy ... got to keep my game face on. But, uh... The truth is I'm not handling it very well.
Sam: I thought you said he was a good hunter.
Ellen: And Hannibal Lecter's a good psychiatrist.
Dean: A wooden bridge. That's all you got?
Sam: The bridge was four and a half minutes from their farm
Dean: How do you know?
Sam: I counted. They took a left out of the farm, then turned right onto a dirt road, followed that for two minutes, slightly uphill. Then took another quick right and we hit the bridge.
Dean: You're good. You're a monster pain in the ass... but you're good.
Sam: So we're looking for some people.
Bartender: Sure, it's hard to be lonely.
Sam: Dean, get me a bucket.
Dean: Find something?
Sam: No, I think I'm going to puke.
Dean: You all right, Sammy?
Sam: Yeah, I'm fine.
Gordon: Well, lighten up a little, Sammy.
Sam: He's the only one who gets to call me that.
Dean: (talking about the Impala) Woo... listen to her purr. Have you ever heard anything so sweet?
Sam: You know, if you two want to get a room, just let me know, Dean.
Dean: (rubbing the steering wheel) Aww, don't listen to him baby, he doesn't understand us.
Both Eric Kripke and writer Sera Gamble were particularly satisfied by "Bloodlust." In the Supernatural: The Official Companion - Season 2 Gamble called the episode a cautionary tale and explained: "That Gordon was Dean in ten years if Sam didn't ask the difficult questions and keep him from getting too militant."
