Game Show Host
When Dean is shot, the bullet wound is on the left side of his back. When he falls to his knees, however, the wound is on the right side.
Cathy Randolph: I could have sworn I saw... the Incredible Hulk.
Sam: The Incredible Hulk?
Cathy Randolph: I told you, it's crazy.
Dean: Bana or Norton?
Cathy Randolph: Oh, no, those movies were terrible. The TV Hulk.
Dean: Lou Ferrigno?
Cathy Randolph: Yes.
Dean: Ally with the Trickster?
Dean: A bloody, violent monster... and you wanna be Facebook friends with him? Nice, Sammy.
Dr. Piccolo: Doctor, seriously.
Dr. Picolo: Seriously, you are brilliant, you know that, and a coward. You're a brilliant coward.
Sam: Uh, what are you talking about?
Dr. Picolo: As if you don't know.
Sam: It was you on the police scanner, right? This is a trick.
Trickster: Hello? Trickster.
Dean: How long do we have to keep doing this? (Studio audience laughs)
Sam: (fake-smiling) I don't know. Maybe forever? We may die in here. (studio audience laughs)
Dean: How is that funny? Vultures.
Game Show Host: No, no, no, no. Mr. Trickster does not like pretty boy angels.
Sam: I am doing all I can, to slightly lessen the spread of... of genital herpes. And that's a good thing.
Herpexia Disclaimer: Patients should always consult with a physician before using Herpexia. Possible side effects include: Headache, diarrhea, permanent erectile dysfunction, thoughts of suicide and nausea.
Sam: You've got to calm down.
Dean: Calm down? I am wearing sunglasses at night. You know who does that? No-talent douchebags. I hate this game. I hate that we're in a procedural cop show. And you want to know why? Because I hate procedural cop shows. It's like 300 of them on television, they're all the freakin' same.
Trickster: Wow. Sam, get a load of the rims on you.
SAM the Car: Eat me.
Trickster: Where'd you get the holy oil?
Dean: You might say we pulled it out of Sam's ass.
Trickster: Where'd I screw up?
Sam: You didn't. Nobody gets the jump on Castiel like you did.
Dean: Mostly it was the way you talked about Armageddon.
Dean: Well, call it personal experience. Nobody gets that angry unless they're talking about their own family.
Sam: So which one are you? Grumpy, Sleepy, or Douchy?
Trickster: (to Sam and Dean) You sorry sons of bitches. Why do you think you two are the vessels? Think about it. Michael, the big brother, loyal to an absent father. And Lucifer, the little brother, rebellious of daddy's plan. You two were born to this, boys! It's your destiny. It was always you. As it is in Heaven, so it must be on Earth. One brother has to kill the other.
The opening credits are in an 80s family/sitcom style: different opening theme, different font for the credits, and shots of Sam and Dean engaging in brotherly humor and ghost-hunting.
The episode parodies two of the shows on opposite Supernatural: CSI: Miami on CBS and Grey's Anatomy on ABC.
Music: Move You (Anya Marina), Not A Through Street (Anya Marina), Something Real (Renee Stahl), Won't Get Fooled Again (The Who), Knight Rider Theme (Stu Phillips and Glen A. Larson)
Injoke: In the Dr. Sexy MD skit, Dean is explaining to Sam that the woman is having a relationship with a ghost. In the show Grey's Anatomy Jeffrey Dean Morgan (John Winchester) played a character named Denny who died and could only be seen by his girlfriend.

Cathy Randolph: I could have sworn I saw the Incredible Hulk.
Specifically referencing the CBS TV series running from 1978 to 1982, starring Bill Bixby as David Bruce Banner, and Lou Ferrigno as his alter-ego, the Hulk. Dean's subsequent question "Bana or Norton" refers to the two actors who played the character in the movies.
SAM the car:
The glowing red light, control panel in the car, and hip background music reference the NBC TV series Knight Rider, which ran from 1982 to 1986, and featured KITT, a talking car with a computer intelligence.
