Det. Diana Ballard
Det. Peter Sheridan
"Occurrence" is misspelled "Occurrance" on the computer report that Ballard files, when "Dana Shulps" appears on her computer screen.
On the police report that Ballard files, it says that Anthony Giles' business address and phone number are the same as his home number. However, as is clearly shown earlier, he has a separate business office. In fact the business address is listed at the top of form under "Location of Occurrance." The Business Address field should match it.
When the detectives interrogate Sam and Dean, there is no lawyer present.
When Sam and Ballard are in the motel room, just before they are about to leave Sam is seen putting his arm into his jacket then having his jacket in his hand again.
When Sam and Ballard are in the place on Ashland Street, they move a shelf and they see 'Ashland Sup' on a window, and then follow it to where we see it shadowed on a wall. However, the wrong parts are shadowed. If the letters are solid, like they appear on the window, everything else around it would be lighted, not the letters, like they appear on the wall.
When Sam brings Dean coffee, Sam sits down and takes a sip of the drink. In the next scene the cup is no longer at his mouth but on the table.
When the female cop is reading Sam his file, Sam leans against the wall and crosses his arms, but in the next scene, he crosses his arms again.
Trivia: This is the first episode where Dean does not refer to Sam as Sammy.
Ballard: How did you get those? Those are from crime scenes and booking photos.
Sam: You have your job, I have mine.
Dean: Pee break? So soon? I think you might wanna get your prostate checked.
Sam: Wow, I'd say we've officially crossed over into weird.
Ballard: Unless... I just happened to turn my back, you walked away, I could tell them the suspects escaped.
Sam: Wait, are you sure?
Dean: Yes, she's sure, Sam!
Sam: You know, I think this is bothering me.
Ballard: Well, you are digging up a corpse.
Sam: No, not that. See, it's pretty par for the course, actually.
Ballard: Sam, you seem like a good kid. It's not your fault Dean's your brother. We can't pick our family.
Krause: I'm with the public defenders office. I'm your lawyer.
Dean: Oh, thank God. I'm saved.
Dean: What do you think, Scully, want to check it out?
Sam: I'm not Scully, you're Scully.
Dean: No, I'm Mulder. You're a red-headed woman.
Krause: Do you understand how serious these charges are?
Dean: I'm handcuffed to a table. Yeah, I get it. Humor me.
Sheridan: Talk directly into the camera, start by stating your name for the record.
Dean: My name is Dean Winchester. I'm an Aquarius, I enjoy sunsets, long walks on the beach, and frisky women.
Sheridan: We can pin the whole thing on him. No trial, nothing, just one more dead scum bag.
Sam: Anthony Gyles' body was found right about here. (reads) "Throat slit so deep, part of his spinal cord was visible."
Dean: (whistles) What do you think? Vengeful spirit, underline "vengeful"?
Sam: I needed some time off. To deal. So, I'm taking a road trip with my brother.
Ballard: How's that going for you?
Sam: Great. I mean, we saw the second largest ball of twine in the continental U.S. Awesome.
Dean's line "I could really go for some pea soup," which can be heard at the end of the episode, wasn't originally in the script. It was recorded during a looping section in the ADR van.
