Simon Said Allusions

Webber/Ansem Weems: She's garbage, man! They all are! We can push them, we can make them do whatever we want!

Referencing Firestarter by Stephen King, in which a character develops telepathic hypnosis which he refers to as the "push."

Dean: It's not exactly a serial killer's lair, though. There's no clown paintings on the wall...

A reference to serial killer John Wayne Gacy Jr. who killed at least 32 young men in Chicago in the 1970s (and buried most of them in the crawl space under his home). One of Gacy's other hobbies was dressing as a clown for children's parties and for visiting sick children in the hospital. He also collected clown artwork and even painted some of his own.

Dean: And Moby Dick's bong.

This is a reference to the novel Moby-Dick by Herman Melville, which is about a ship's captain chasing a giant whale. The point that Dean is making is that it's very large bong!

Andy's License Plate: RU OBI 1

Another reference to the 1977 film Star Wars and Obi-Wan Kenobi

Sam: Hegel, Kant, Wittgenstein, it's pretty heavy reading, Dean.

Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770-1831) and Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) were German philosophers, Ludwig Josef Johann Wittgenstein (1889-1951) was a philosopher from Austria. All three are regarded as very influential thinkers and are responsible for major philosophical achievements. Their original works are counted among the most complex and difficult readings available

Sam: Dean, you had O.J. convicted before he got out of his white Bronco and you have doubts about this?
Dean: He doesn’t seem like the stone cold killer type, that’s all, you know. And O.J. was guilty.

This alludes to O. J. Simpson murder trial. In 1994, O.J.’s estranged wife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her friend Ronald Goldman were found murdered outside of her home. When O.J. was charged with the murders, he failed to turn himself in and this lead to a low speed pursuit in his white Bronco.
