Professor Arthur Cox
In the final scene when we see the alleged dead Trickster in the chair, as the scene starts, you can see Richard Speight's chest rise as he takes a deep breath and holds it.
In the end, the bed and disco lights are still on the stage even though all the stuff that the trickster supposedly conjured up faded away when he was stabbed. This should have alerted Sam and Dean to the fact that the trickster was still alive, as seen at the end of episode.
Sam: There was this guy. He was a research scientist. Animal testing.
Dean: Yeah, you know, a dick. Which fits the pattern.
Sam: How would you feel if I screwed with the Impala?
Dean: It'd be the last thing you ever did.
Sam: You know something? I've put up with a lot from you!
Dean: What are you talking about? I'm a joy to be around!
Trickster: Mr. Morality here, he brought a lot of girls up here. Got more ass than a toilet seat.
Jen: So now she haunts the building, and anyone who sees her doesn't live to tell the tale.
Curtis: Well, if no one lives to tell the tale, then how does the tale get told?
Dean: These punishments, they're almost poetic. Well, actually they'd be more like a limerick, but still…
Bobby: If you two had bothered to pull your heads out of your asses, it all would've been pretty clear.
Bobby: What you're dealing with.
Dean: I got nothing.
Sam: Me neither.
Bobby: You got a trickster on your hands.
Dean: That's what I thought!
Sam: What?!? No you didn't!
Janitor: Sorry I'm dragging a little ass today, boys. Had quite the night last night. Lots of sex, if you catch my drift.
Dean: Yeah, hard not to.
Dean: Look, man, I--I gotta tell you, I dig your style, all right. You know. I mean, (gestures to scantily clad women) I do. I mean… phew! And the, uh, slow-dancing alien... (both laugh)
Trickster: One of my personal favorites.
(Dean continues on telling his version of the story)
Sam: So you and this guy, Curtis, you were in the same house?
Frat Guy: Yeah.
Dean: You heard of what happened to him right?
Frat Guy: Yeah, he said it was aliens... but you know, whatever.
Sam: Look, man, I know this all has to be so hard...
Frat Guy: Not so much.
Sam: But I want you to know... I'm here for you. You brave little soldier. I acknowledge your pain. Come here. (hugs him) Too precious for this world.
(cuts back to actual time)
Sam: I never said that!
Dean: You're always saying pansy stuff like that.
Classy Girl: My God, you are attractive!
Dean: Thanks. But no time for that now. You need to tell me about this urban legend. Please? Lives are at stake.
Classy Girl: Sorry, I can't even concentrate. (gazing at Dean) It's like staring into the sun.
Bobby: You're bickering like an old married couple.
Dean: No, see, married couples can get divorced. Me and him? We're like, uh, Siamese twins,
Sam: It's conjoined twins.
Dean: See what I mean?
Sam: Dean. This is a very serious investigation. We don't have time for any of your blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah... blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah. Blah!
Sam: Maybe we should get some help. I'll call Bobby. Maybe he's run into something like this before.
Dean: Oh, I'm sure he has. Just your typical haunted campus, alien abduction, alligator in the sewer gig. Yeah, it's simple.
Dean: You have to give those purple nurples a shot... phew!
Sam: I'm telling you, Dean, this is made by some kind of jet engine.
Dean: Oh... what do you mean? Like some saucer-shaped jet engine?
Sam: Well, what else can it be?
Dean: What the hell?!
Sam: I don't know.
Dean: Well seriously dude, what the hell?!
Sam: (yells) I don't know!! I mean first The Haunting, now this? The timing alone. There's gotta be some sort of connection here.
Dean: What? You mean between the angry spirit and uh... the sexed up ET? What could the connection possibly be?
Dean: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa... hold on a minute!!
Dean: C'mon, dude, that's not how it happened!
Sam: No? So you never drank a purple nurple?
Dean: Yeah, maybe that, but I don't say things like "fiesty little wildcat" and her name wasn't Starla.
Sam: Then what was it?
Dean: I don't know... but she was a classy chick. She was a grad student. Anthropology and folklore. We were talking about ghost stories.
Sam: Dude... were you on my computer?
Sam: Oh really? Cuz it's frozen now, on... on bustyasianbeauties.com? (Dean walks away) Dean... would you, just... don't touch my stuff anymore, okay!?!
Dean: Why don't you control your OCD?
Curtis: They did tests on me then uh.. (drinks shot) they probed me.
Dean: They probed you?
Curtis: Yeah, they probed me... Again and again and again and... (drinks shot again) ...and again and again and again and then one more time.
Curtis: That's not even the worst of it.
Dean: How can it get any worse? Some alien made you his bitch?
Curtis: They... they made me slow dance.
Sam: Dean, I... I'm...
Dean: Hey, me too.
Bobby: You guys are breaking my heart. Could we please just leave?
Sam: (yelling) Your dirty socks in the sink! Your food in the fridge!
Dean: What's wrong with my food?
Sam: It's not food anymore, Dean! It's Darwinism!
Dean: I like it.

This episode received its own special article at www.weeklyworldnews.com. Oddly, the article explains one thing that goes unmentioned in the episode itself: the stakes used to kill a Trickster must be dipped in the blood of one of its victims.

The opening of clips from previous episodes featured scenes exclusively showing Dean and Sam goofing around, pranking each other, and calling each other names.
Dean: I don't know, man. I think they're called Purple Nurples.
A Purple Nurple is a type of alcoholic cocktail drink that is made by putting coconut rum, triple sec, Blue Curacao, cranberry juice, and ice in a cocktail shaker. The ingredients are then shaken up and strained into a glass for serving.
This character references Leatherface from The Texas Chain Saw Massacre series of films from 1974, starring Gunnar Hansen.
Dean: This is my shuttle co-pilot, Major Tom.
Referencing to the main character of two famous David Bowie songs. For the first time, Major Tom appears in the 1969 hit Space Oddity, on the album of the same name ("Ground Control to Major Tom..."). In 1980, Major Tom returns in the song Ashes to Ashes, on the album Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) ("Do you remember a guy that's been in such an early song? I've heard a rumor from Ground Control...").
Weekly World News (WWN) is a mock tabloid newspaper published by American Media Inc. Its editor in chief is Jeff Rovin. It combines wire reports of strange news with in-house writings and columns, all fictional.
Dean: What? You mean between the angry spirit and uh... the sexxed up ET?
ET refers to the Academy award winning movie E.T. the Extra Terrestrial, which was directed by Steven Spielberg. The movie was about a boy named Elliot who becomes friends with an alien whom he names E.T.
