  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Dean: You know, uh, the Coyote chases the Road Runner.
      Referencing the animated Warner Brothers characters. The Coyote is typically seen hunting his nemesis, the Road Runner. The Coyote never speaks, and hunts the Road Runner primarily by ordering implausibly complex equipment from the Acme Corporation. Inevitably, the seemingly indestructible Coyote ends up squashed, burnt, or at the bottom of a canyon after falling.

    • Dean: Maybe it's some--some crazy god who watched too much Robot Chicken.
      Robot Chicken is a comedy television series created by actor Seth Green which airs on Cartoon Network during the Adult Swim programming block. The series features action figures and other toys in stop-motion animated sketches.

    • Dean: Look, man, I hate those flying-ass monkeys as much as you do.
      Referencing the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz, based on the novels by L. Frank Baum. Margaret Hamilton plays the Wicked Witch of the West, the main villainess of the movie. The flying monkeys are her personal servants.

    • Dean: So this animaniac can step through walls?
      Referencing the animated WB series (initially on Fox) which consisted of a number of characters referred to collectively as "Animaniacs." The core characters were Yakko, Wakko, and Dot, Warner Brother characters from the 30s who were trapped in the studio water tower for 60 years. Other characters included Pinky & The Brain, Skippy Squirrel, Dr. Otto Scratchansniff, and dozens more.

    • Dean: You go Invisible Girl and keep an eye on him.
      Referencing Sue Storm, the comic book character first introduced in Fantastic Four #1 (Nov. 1961), created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. After being exposed to cosmic radiation along with her fiance Reed, friend Ben Grimm, and brother Johnny, Sue gains the power to (initially) turn invisible. She eventually gains the power to generate invisible force fields with her mind as well, making her a far more useful member of the Fantastic Four.

    • Dean: That's all, folks.
      Referencing the Looney Tunes and Merrie Melodies cartoons, which invariably ended with Porky Pig popping out of a drum, and saying, "Eh-eh-eh! That's all, folks!"

    • Aliases: Crosby, Stills, Nash
      Referencing the folk rock group Crosby, Stills & Nash, who made the scene in 1986 with such hits as "Marrakesh Express," "Teach Your Children," "Our House," and "Wasted on the Way." The fourth member of the band is Neil Young, who performed sporadically with the group.

    • Glass: Whatever you say, Scully.
      Referencing the TV series that premiered in 1993 and ran for nine seasons, and featured David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson as FBI agents investigating the paranormal. Anderson played Dana Scully the (initially) skeptic of the two who sought rational explanations for the many supernatural and alien cases that they dealt with.

    • Sam: Like Woody Woodpecker or Daffy Duck.
      Referencing two cartoon birds. Woody Woodpecker first appeared in the cartoon short Knock Knock (1940) and was created by Ben Hardaway, Walter Lantz, and Alex Lovy. Originally a lunatic, Woody has mellowed over the years, particularly when he made the jump to television in 1957. Daffy Duck first appeared in Porky's Duck Hunt (1937) by Warner Brothers, and was created by Tex Avery and Bob Clampett. Unlike Woody, Daffy has rarely mellowed for long and is typically driven by his wackiness, his greed, and his jealousy of fellow Warner's animated feature player, Bugs Bunny.
