|After finding out that Garth is in the hospital, Dean and Sam go to check on him. Still carrying the guilt over Kevin, Dean lays into Garth about disappearing and demands to know where he’s been. Garth makes an excuse and then hightails it away from the guys. Confused as to why Garth would run from them, Sam and Dean do some investigating and are stunned by what they find.|
- Sam - "What happened to your arm?"
Dean: “It’s a gift from Cain."
Sam: “Like the wrestler?"
Dean: “I wish, that would be awesome. No, the Old Testament dude. He got all Biblical on me and gave me his mark."
- Garth (to Bess) - "That’s Dean. Now he could start a fight in an empty house, but deep down inside he’s just a big, old teddy bear... Sam can be a bit insecure at times, but for good reason. Bless his heart."
- Garth (to Dean and Sam) - "You two came busting in here like a house on fire. Guns waving, the jaw lines and the hair, it’s very intimidating."
- Dean (to Garth) - “You said it, who cares where happiness comes from. Look, we’re all a little weird, we’re all a little wacky – some more than others – but if it works, it works.”
- Dean (to Sam) - “Somebody changed the playbook, man, you know. It’s like what’s right is wrong and what’s wrong is more wrong.”
- Sam (to Dean) - "Something’s broken here, Dean… We don’t see things the same way anymore, our roles in this whole thing... Back in that church, talking me out of boarding up Hell? Or tricking me into letting Gadreel possess me? I can’t trust you. Not the way I thought I could. Not the way I should be able to... You want to work, let’s work. If you want to be brothers… Those are my terms.”
(Rev. Jim Meyers)

- Bess and her stepmother were born as werewolves. They refer to people who got turned after a bite as “bittens”. Some members of Bess’ family look down on “bittens” and prefer to be called “lycanthropes” and not werewolves

- Dean: "No, you just go all Wolverine on cattle."
This refers to the Marvel Comics character who appeared in The Incredible Hulk #180 (October 1974). Wolverine, aka Logan, is one of the X-Men, a mutant possessing the power of enhanced regeneration, allowing him to heal wounds at an accelerated rate
- Dean tells Garth that he "drank the Kool-Aid", meaning he accepted the story his father-in-law (and spiritual leader) was telling him. This is a reference to the cult leader Reverend Jim Jones, who instructed his followers (members of the People's Temple) to drink Kool-Aid poisoned with cyanide, resulting in a mass suicide in Jonestown, Guyana in 1978
- Sam's fed alias was Agent Perry. This could refer to Steve Perry -- the former lead singer for the band Journey, or Joe Perry -- lead guitarist with the band Aerosmith
- Sam: "Truth be told, I'm more interested in, uh, murders and X-Filey stuff."
This refers to the cult hit TV show, "The X-Files". The show revolved primarily around two FBI agents, Dana Scully and Fox Mulder, who investigated the paranormal and the unexplained
- Dean: "Sheriff Andy Taylor here wasn't good enough for you."
This refers to the main character played by Andy Griffith on The Andy Griffith Show from 1960-1968. Andy Taylor is a good-hearted sheriff who looks after the town of Mayberry.
- According to Norse mythology, Ragnarok is an end-of-days prophecy that describes how some powerful Norse gods, including Loki, Thor, and Odin, will meet their end. Fenris is a fictional wolf character featured in the Marvel comic book series "Fenris Wolf". The character is loosely based on the Norse god "Fenrir". The maw of Fenris is fictional
