Geek references aplenty in this episode! We find out Bobby reads Harry Potter when he makes a reference to Hogwarts, Sam finds that all searches for fire, gold, and virgins leads him to World of Warcraft sites, Dean makes references to Batman's anger issues, Middle Earth, and the 12 sided dice which are used in Dungeons and Dragons, and when the Dragon asks where he got the blade, he says "Comic Con".
Bobby: Ask Cloverfield, I'm pretty sure he's got that page.

Sam: Do you think Batman tried to rape her?

Dean: Well he does carry a lot of rage!

Dean is referring of course to Batman. Starting with Frank Millers' comic Batman: Year One and continuing with The Dark Knight Returns, the character became much darker and angrier. It is this version that Christian Bale has portrayed in the current Batman movies directed by Christopher Nolan.

Bobby: As far as I can gather this dates back to around the fourteenth century.

Bobby: Hey, how's Memento doing over there?
Memento is a movie written and directed by Christopher Nolan about a man who suffers from anterograde amnesia and can't remember anything after the event that caused the amnesia. Sam on the other hand, has retrograde amnesia where he can't remember anything before the event that caused the amnesia [in his case, getting his soul back
Dean: Dad never wrote anything about dragons. I promise. I'd remember if I read the Never-Ending Story in there.
The Never-Ending Story is a fantasy novel and film in which the protagonist is aided by a dragon.
Sam: Great, back to the lore.

Dean: Which says what, that they live in Middle Earth?

Middle Earth is the setting for J.R.R. Tolkien's books, including The Hobbit and the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Dragons appear in several of Tolkien's stories.
