|DEAN GETS A SURPRISING MESSAGE FROM BOBBY’S CELL PHONE — Dean is surprised when he checks Bobby’s cell phone and hears a message that says Bobby or his next of kin have been named as a beneficiary in an heiress’ will. Hoping that means extra money, Dean talks Sam into hitting the road to claim their fortune. However, what they encounter at the house is far from a treasure chest.|
- Dean to Sam (about the small coffee cups) - "Real men don't drink out of cups this small...What is that? Cinnamon roll?"
- Dean to Philip - "Don't worry, Alfred. We know which one the shrimp fork is...kind of."
- Sam to Dean (about all the extra shots when he was killing the shapeshifter) - "You sure it wasn’t….I don’t know, demon residue or something to do with the Mark, or…?"
|Kevin McNulty (Phillip the butler)||Izabella Miko (Olivia)|
|Marcus Rosner (Dash)||Gillian Vigman (Heddy)|
|Debra Lynne McCabe (Beverly)||Doug Abrahams (Det. Howard)|
- Is Dean in denial over the Mark of Cain? Is it still affecting him?
- Can Dean and Sam find a way to remove the Mark safely?
- Where is Rowena and what is she doing?
- Is Crowley still missing Dean as his "bestie"?
- Shouldn't Sam and Dean have realized that the cross was a key, and that the silverware wasn't real silver? Are they BOTH distracted and off their game because of recent events?
- Dean lost control killing the shape-shifter.
- Sam is still concerned Dean isn't back to his old self and that the Mark may be affecting him again.
- Kevin McNulty, who played Phillip the butler, also played the faith healer (Roy LeGrange) in "Faith" (season 1).
- Doug Abrahams, who played Detective Howard, also played a bus driver in "After School Special" (season 4).
- Ask Jeeves is the name of an internet search engine, and "Jeeves"is a generic name for a butler.
- Dean mentions "Murphy's Law" - a well-known adage that says anything that can go wrong willgo wrong. The origins of the saying are uncertain.
- Dean mentions Tori Spelling and her husband Dean. Bobby had a secret crush on Tori Spelling.
- "WASP" is an acronym for "White Anglo-Saxon Protestant". It is often meant as an insult to describe someone who comes from a privileged background.
- "Sexting" refers to sending text messages containing sexual (or sexually suggestive) language.
- The murder-mystery board game "Clue" is referenced several times in this episode. The weapons Dean uses (the wrench, candlestick, pipe, etc.) are murder weapons in the game. Dean mentions Mrs. Peacock, Colonel Mustard, and Wadsworth (the butler), who are also characters from the game.
- "Mr. Belvedere is a 1980s era sitcom about a butler.
- Dean references "Renfield", a deranged human who assisted the fictional count Dracula in procuring victims.
- "Rizzoli and Isles" is a television detective drama.
- "Doth protest too much" is from Shakespeare's play "Hamlet"; it generally means that if someone protests an accusation too strenuously, it may be because the accusation is true.
- "Leopold and Loeb" were two wealthy college students who committed murder in 1924.
- "Hiding in the attic like in the movie" refers to the movie and book (by V.C. Andrews) "Flowers in the attic". In the book, a grandmother locks her grandchildren in the attic for many years. The shapeshifter's name in this episode, Olivia, is also the name of the grandmother in the book. This is likely another nod to the book.
- Dean calls Dash "Izod" (as a backhanded insult) referring to the upscale "preppy"clothing line Izod Lacoste.
- "Fur Elise" -- by Ludwig van Beethoven (is the ring tone for the doorbell at the estate)
- "Travelin' Man" -- by Bob Seger (plays as Dean and Sam drive away at the end of the episode)

Here's your chance to sound off with your hopes for "Ask Jeeves" and your thoughts about this episode after it airs. 🙂
After the tour de force of this week's episode, "Fan Fiction" - the landmark 200th episode - what will this one be like? It looks like there'll be some laughs but I guess there'll be some serious moments too.
Let us know what you think... And then tell us what you loved and what didn't you like so much about the whole episode...
