Joe the Plumber
When Joe (the plumber) takes his hand out of the sink hole, the faucet is facing toward the left of the sink. The shot when he puts his hand back in, the faucet facing toward the center of the sink. The next shot while his arm is back in the sink hole, the faucet is back toward the left.
When Sam and Dean run to the house to save Jenny and the kids, they do not have to bust the door to get inside. If she is in bed for the night, why is her front door unlocked?
Just after the young boy gets into the fridge, there is a shot of the safety latch securing the door to the fridge closed. But in the next and final shot of the scene, the fridge stands with the safety latch obviously open as the scene fades to black.
When Dean is running to the house with the ax, there is a visible shadow of the camera and the cameraman on the grass.
When Dean and Sam are talking, just before Dean makes the call to dad, Sam is sitting on the trunk lid and Dean is standing facing the other way. Sam, then, looks at Dean as if he is standing beside him. The way they are both positioned there is no way Sam would be looking at his brother when he is looking in that direction. Dean would really be on the other side of him. So, you can tell those are two different versions of the same scene.
Early on in the episode everything was scattered around in the fridge and there were shelves but, when Richie climbs in it the shelves are magically gone and the food is all stacked neatly to the sides just leaving enough room for the little boy to climb in there.
As Sam is being strangled by the lamp cord, you see Dean supposedly "straining" to loosen the cord from Sam's neck. However, if you look closely the cord is extremely loose with plenty of room for Sam to breathe.
Why didn't Dean just break a window instead of trying to bust down the door with an ax?
After Richie climbs in the refrigerator it shows the childproof latch snaps locking him in there. After the commercial when Jenny see's the milk and goes over to the fridge it is unlatched so she picks it up and pretends to unhook it when clearly it wasn't hooked to begin with.
Trivia: When Sam was getting the kids away from the spirit, he tells the girl the same thing his dad said to Dean in the "Pilot" episode.
Trivia: Dean's phone number, given in the previous episode, "Phantom Traveller," is again heard in John Winchester's voicemail message. The number has been updated with yet another easter egg (a working email address).
Missouri: I haven't been back inside, but I've been keeping an eye on the place and it's been quiet. No sudden deaths, no freak accidents. Why is it acting up now?
Sam: I don't know. But Dad going missing, and Jessica dying, and now this house all happening at once, it just feels like something's starting.
Dean: That's a comforting thought.
Missouri: You see, all those years ago real evil came to you. It walked this house. That kind of evil leaves wounds, and sometimes wounds get infected.
Dean: What is all this?
Missouri: Crossroads dirt, few other odds and ends. We're gonna put them in the west and east sides of the house; it'll repel the spirit.
Dean: Punching holes in the drywall. Jenny's gonna love that.
Missouri: She'll live.
Dean: All right. I've been cruisin' some websites and I think I found some candidates for our next gig. A fishing trawler found off the coast of Cali, its crew vanished. And, uh, we got some cattle mutilations in west Texas. Hey! Am I boring you with this hunting-evil stuff?
Sam: No, I'm listening. Keep going.
Dean: And here, a Sacramento man shot himself in the head. Three times. Any of these things blowin' up your skirt, pal?
Missouri: Sam, oh honey. I'm sorry about your girlfriend. And your father... he's missing.
Sam: How'd you know all that?
Missouri: Well, you were just thinking it, just now.
Dean: Where is he? Is he okay?
Missouri: I don't know.
Dean: Don't know? You're supposed to be a psychic, right?
Missouri: Boy, you see me sawing some bony tramp in half? You think I'm a magician? I may be able to read thoughts and sense energies in a room but I can't just pull facts out of thin air.
Missouri: Don't worry about a thing, your wife's crazy about you. (client leaves) Whoo, poor bastard. His woman is cold-banging the gardener.
Dean: Why didn't you tell him?
Missouri: People don't come here for the truth, they come for good news.
Dean: Just slow down would ya. I mean first you tell me that you've got the Shining, and then you tell me that I've got to go back home, especially when...
Sam: When what?
Dean: When I swore to myself that I would never go back there.
Dean: (to his Dad's voicemail) Dad, I know I've left messages before. I don't even know if you get 'em. But I'm with Sam, and we're in Lawrence, and there's something in our old house. I don't know if it's the thing that killed Mom or not... but... I don't know what to do. So whatever you're doing, if you could get here... please. I need your help, Dad.
Dean: Listen, Jenny, it's important, Ow!
(Missouri hits him on the back of the head)
Missouri: Give the poor girl a break, can't you see she's upset? (to Jenny) Forgive this boy--he means well, he's just not the sharpest tool in the shed.
Missouri: You sensed it was here, didn't you? Even when I couldn't.
Sam: What's happening to me?
Missouri: I know I should have all the answers but...I don't know.
Missouri: Don't you worry-–Dean's going to clean up this mess. What are you waiting for, boy? Get the mop. (Dean glares silently) And don't cuss at me!
Missouri: That an EMF?
Missouri: Boy, you put your foot on my coffee table, I'm going to whack you with a spoon.
Dean: I didn't do anything.
Missouri: Well, you were thinking about it.
Missouri: You boys grew up handsome. (looks at Dean) And you were one goofy-looking kid, too.
Eric Kripke is particularly proud of "Home" because of the plumbing scene: "My favorite scene all year long is the guy grinding up his hand in the garbage disposal. We had the shot of underneath the pipe, where you saw the goo going into the bucket, and I laughed because I'm a sick puppy."
Denmark: March 5, 2006 on TV3
The Netherlands: August 31, 2008 on NET5
In the promotionals for this episode, this episode was billed as "The Journey Home."
First appearance of Dean's and Sam's dad. (without counting the "past" when they escaped the house.)
Loretta Devine, (who guest-stars in "Home") jokes about Jared and Jensen: "Those guys are just so bad. You never know what they're going to do, and you can't keep your eyes on both of them at once!"
Dean: I mean first you tell me that you've got the Shining.
Referencing the 1980 Stanley Kubrick film, The Shining, starring Jack Nicholson as Jack Torrance. Dean is comparing Sam to the character of Danny Torrance, who had a gift of clairvoyance and telepathy. The film was based on the 1977 book by Stephen King of the same title, though the screenplay changed the story in several ways.
Dean: Missouri did her whole Zelda Rubinstein thing...
This is in reference to the 1982 movie Poltergeist, in which Zelda Rubinstein played the part of the clairvoyant named Tangina Barrons.
