Renee Van Allen
When Sam and Dean walk into Amanda's house and find her dead, the camera cuts to her and we see that her mouth is completely closed. When the scene is about to end and there is another shot of Amanda, we see that her mouth is now open.
When Sam and Dean walk out of the Duttons' house, it begins to rain and we can see that both of their jackets become wet around the shoulders. However, when they get in the car, their jackets are dry.
The demon picks up a wrought iron fire poker to beat Ruby with. However it has been established, many times, that demons cannot touch iron
When the demon possessing Tammi kills Renee telekinetically by snapping her neck, Renee's head moves in the opposite direction than the demon's hand.
We know that Sam and Dean were arrested at least twice before and police certainly have their prints in the system. So why would they break and enter into Amanda's house without wearing gloves thus leaving their prints as evidence around a murder scene?
When Sam was being pinned to the wall, first his bangs were on his forehead and then two scenes later, they weren't. Then a scene later, the bangs were back across his forehead.
Towards the end when the demon has been killed, Ruby's bangs keep changing position from off to the side to between her eyes.
When the spurned witch was killed at the beginning of the show 3 of 4 candles were blown out. When Dean and Sam came looking for her and found her dead, two candles remained burning.
While Poison's "Every Rose Has Its Thorn" is playing in the background, closed captioning displays the words for Nazareth's "Love Hurts".
Dean: I saw Hellraiser, I get the gist.
Ruby: Actually, they got that pretty close. Except for all the custom leather.
Sam: Stop the spell or die! Five seconds.
Renee: What? No… please… don't kill us!
Elizabeth: We were just getting Renee a lower mortgage rate!
Sam: (about Amanda) See, her house was littered with Satanic paraphernalia.
Dean: A regular Black Sabbath.
Elizabeth: No, that… but she was an Episcopalian.
Dean: Well… then we're pretty sure she was using the wrong Bible.
Dean: I mean, this doesn't exactly look like the TV room of a bright and stable person, does it?
Dean: You want to kill me. Get in line, bitch!
(after saving Dean's life)
Ruby: Stop... calling me bitch.
Dean: Are you feeling okay?
Sam: (sighs) Why are you always asking me that?
Dean: 'Cause you're taking advice from a demon for starters. And by the way, you seem less and less worried about offing people, you know, it used to eat you up inside.
Sam: Yeah, and what has that gotten me?
Dean: Nothing, it's just what you're supposed to do okay, we're supposed to drive the friggin' car, and friggin' argue about this stuff. You know, you go on about the sanctity of life and all that crap.
Sam: So you're mad because I'm starting to agree with you?
Dean: No, not mad, I'm... I'm worried, Sam. I'm worried 'cos you're not acting like yourself.
Sam: Yeah, you're right, I'm not. I don't have a choice.
Dean: What's that suppose to mean?
Sam: Look, Dean, you're leaving right? And I gotta stay here in this crap-hole of a world... alone. So, the way I see it, if I'm gonna make it... if I'm gonna fight this war after you're gone then I gotta change.
Dean: Change into what?
Sam: Into you... I gotta be more like you.
Dean: Why does a rabbit always get screwed in the deal? Poor little guy.
Dean: So let me get this straight. You were human once. You died, you went to Hell, and you became a...
Ruby: The answer is yes, by the way.
Ruby: Yes, the same thing will happen to you. It might take centuries, but sooner or later, Hell will burn away your humanity. Every hell bound soul, every one, turns into something else. Turns you into us, so, yeah... yeah, you can count on it.
Sam: Look, I know it's dangerous, that she is dangerous, but like it or not, she's useful.
Dean: No! We kill her before she kills us.
Sam: Kill her with what? The gun she fixed for us?
Dean: Whatever works.
Sam: Dean, if she wants us dead, all she has to do is stop saving our lives.
Dean: They killed the nut job, should we thank them or what?
Sam: They're working black magic, too, Dean. They need to be stopped.
Dean: Stopped like stopped? They're human, Sam.
Sam: They're murderers.
Dean: Burn, witch, burn.
Ruby: You need to help me get him ready for life without you. To fight this war on his own.
Dean: Ruby? Why do you want us to win?
Ruby: Isn't it obvious? I'm not like them. I don't know why. I wish I was, but I'm not. I remember what it's like.
Dean: What what's like?
Ruby: Being human.
Dean: There's no way from saving me from the pit, is there?
Dean: So why'd you tell Sam you could help?
Ruby: To get him to talk to me. You Winchesters can be pretty bigoted.
Ruby: That's what happens when you go to Hell, Dean. That's what Hell is. Forgetting who you are.
Dean: You saved my life.
Ruby: Don't mention it.
Dean: What was that stuff? God, it was ass. It tasted like ass.
Ruby: It's witchcraft, short bus. (she leaves)
Dean: (mutters) You're the short bus, short bus...
Sam: It's not so simple. We're not just hunting anymore. We're at war.
Dean: What the hell were you thinking?
Sam: What? What the hell was I thinking?
Dean: She's a demon, Sam. We want them dead, they want us dead!
Ruby: Put a leash on your brother, Sam - if you wanna keep him.
Dean: I hate witches. They're all spewing their body liquids everywhere. It's creepy. Hell, it's downright unsanitary!

Malleus Maleficarum is the title of a treatise on witches and witchcraft, which was written by Heinrich Kramer and Jacob Sprenger in 1486. The complete title and subtitle was "Malleus Maleficarum, Maleficas, & earum haeresim, ut phramea potentissima conterens", which translates as "The Hammer of Witches, which destroyeth Witches and their heresy like a most powerful spear". In the book, the authors aimed to refute any claims against the true realty of witches, to show that most witches were women, and to set out ways of dealing with them. Interestingly, in relation to the prevalent themes of Supernatural in Season 3, it also asserts that three elements are necessary for the successful accomplishment of witchcraft: the evil-intentioned witch, the help of the devil, and the permission of God. The publication of Malleus Maleficarum was instrumental in the Catholic Church's ultimate acceptance of the reality of witchcraft as a clear and present heresy, and became the handbook for witch-hunters and Inquisitors throughout late medieval Europe.
