|EPISODE 504: THE END
|Dean: The last thing they need to see is a version of The Parent Trap.
Reference to the comedy film The Parent Trap first made in 1961 and remade in 1998, about identical twins who were separated at birth and are reunited.
|In the future to which Zachariah sends Dean, the radio and newspaper refer to President Palin, referencing former Alaska governor (2006-2009) Sarah Palin who was the 2008 running mate of presidential candidate John McCain.|
|Dean: So, what, we're just gonna walk back in and be the Dynamic Duo again?
The Dynamic Duo refers to Batman and Robin.
|When Dean is walking in the devastated city in the future, there is graffiti on a wall that says "Dogs of Peace." This is a mysterious allusion to "Dogs of War," a phrase from line 270, scene 1, Act III of William Shakespeare's Julius Caesar: "Cry 'Havoc!', and let slip the dogs of war" referring to releasing the "dog," i.e. the restraining mechanism, which has been preventing war. It is frequently incorrectly quoted as referring to canine "dogs."|
|Dean: [to Zachariah] I thought I smelled your stink on this Back to the Future crap.
Allusion to the 1985 film starring Michael J. Fox, in which a teen time-travels in a DeLorean.
