Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) meet Andy (guest star Gabriel Tigerman), a slacker who has psychic powers of persuasion, which he uses to gain favors from people. However, when some of Andy's friends start dying, the brothers question whether Andy is using his powers to kill.After learning that Andy's family was visited by the Demon 22 years ago, Sam wonders if Andy is part of the group of children the Demon told him about, and if that means he himself will eventually turn evil.
- Dean: If I ran off with you, I think your mother might kill me.
Jo: You're afraid of my mother?
Dean: I think so.
- Tracy: If you want to find him [Andy], try Orchard St. Just look for a van with a barbarian queen painted on the side.
Dean: Barbarian queen?
Tracy: She's riding a polar bear, it's kinda hard to miss.
- Is Sam destined to become like other "special children" he's finding? Or, is Andy a good sign?
- Apparently, it's not going to be possible to track all the "special children" based on house fires in their nurseries when they were six months old.
- The is the first episode in which we see a cast on Sam's right arm. He'll wear it through Playthings."
- REO Speedwagon - "Can't Fight this Feeling" (Dean sings the title after listening to the song)
- Eric Lindell - "Uncle John"
- Soundgarden - "Fell on Black Days"
- Spinal Tap - "Stonehenge"
- Lil' Ed and the Blues Imperials - "Tired of Crying"
- Daniel May - "Women's Wear"
There are several allusions to Star Wars:
- Andy's license plate reads "RU OBI 1, in reference to Obi-Wan Kenobi.
- When Andy gets Dean to give him the Impala, Dean says, "He full-on Obi-Wanned me!"
- Andy says, "No, it will all be fine. Just go get a cup of coffee, alright? 'These aren't the droids you're looking for.'" This is a reference to a line Obi Wan speaks in the 1977 Star Wars film.
Talk about Simon Said
Sam and Dean have a problem: The ghost of America's first-known serial killer, back for more gore. And they have another problem: Jo, who follows them on their hunt despite her mother's objections.
