|THE GHOSTFACERS RETURN — A teenage girl is killed and the final selfie she took before the attack shows a ghostly figure in the background. Looking for something to keep them busy, Dean and Sam head to Washington to find the ghost. While the two interview the girl's mother, Betty, they are surprised when she starts talking about cold spots and fritzing. When they ask her about bringing up paranormal signs, Betty replies that the “supernaturalists” who called earlier brought it up. Enter Harry and Ed, the famous supernaturalists...|
- Dean (to Harry) - "Am I supposed to be impressed with that treasure trail or the lady gun you’ve got hiding in your pants?"
- Ed (to the camera) - “The bedroom of a teenage girl is meant for two things: giggles and joy. Until one night, Thinman turned the giggles into blood.”
- Harry (to Ed) - “You crashed the Jenga tower of our lives.”
- Dean (to the killers) - "So there was no teleporting. Just a couple of douchebags doing a Scream thing.”
- Ed - "I know you’re not Thinman. You’re just a memee."
Harry - “Ed, it’s pronounced meme."
Ed - “It’s spelled M-E-M-E though."
Harry - “The second E is silent."
Ed - “You’re a memee. A man meme. And I invented you."
- Ed (to Thinman) - “It’s Scooby Doo time, douchebag. Take off the mask.”
- Is Sam starting to realise that Dean wasn't being as selfish as he thought when he allowed Gadreel to possess him?
- Will Sam forgive Dean soon?
- - Or is it that Dean is beginning to lose all hope that he may ever be forgiven by his brother?
- What is Abaddon planning?
- And where's Crowley? Has he found the "first blade" yet?
- Will Cas join forces with Malachi to take on Metatron or will he go his own way?
- How long have they got to reopen the Veil to Heaven before all the trapped souls go crazy?
- Did the "coldness" with which Dean killed Norwood have anything to do with the Mark of Cain's effect on him?
- Ed Zeddmore created the "Thinman" legend to stop his partner Harry from getting married
- When Dean and Sam were playing as children, Sam broke his arm when he jumped from the roof of a shed, pretending to be Batman. Dean (who was pretendingto be Superman) had jumped first without being injured. Afterward, Dean rode Sam to the emergency room on the handlebars of his bicycle
- Dean is correct. Superman can fly, but Batman can't
- Jenny Klein, who wrote this episode, makes a cameo appearance near the end of the episode. She's in the background in the corridor (on the right in this screencap):
- "Thinman" is actually based on the "Slenderman" urban legend
- Dean - "You two clowns are going to get into that Mystery Machine outside and you're gonna leave town or I'm gonna put holes in your knees." - This alludes to the cartoon Scooby Doo, Where Are You? which aired on CBS. It was about four high school students, Fred, Daphne, Velma, Shaggy and their dog Scooby Doo,who formed Mystery, Inc. They were interested in the mysterious and supernatural and travelled around in a bright green van called the Mystery Machine.
- Harry calls Dean and Sam "Menudo", referring to the handsome members of the 1980's era Lain, boy band Menudo
- Dean - "And what about the rest of the Bad New Bears, huh?" - This refers to the 1976 movie about a team of young misfits,who ended up in the Little League team under the guidance of Morris Buttermaker (Walter Matthau), an alcoholic ex-minor league player.
- Harry - "50 Shades of way too much protein." -This refers to the 2011 novel Fifty Shades of Grey by E.L. James, the first in a trilogy of books. It features explicit scenes.
- Norwood - "I figured it wouldn't hurt to go a little Medium, you know." - This alludes to the supernatural-mystery TV series by NBC and then CBS, airing from 2005 to 2011. It was based on the life of Allison DuBois, a housewife with supposed psychic abilities who helped the police to solve crimes.
- Sam - "And when did viral go from that baby chimp falling out of a tree to killer Candid Camera?" - This refers to the long-running series, which staged fake incidents and captured the unsuspecting bystanders' reactions on camera.
- Harry tells Ed that he crashed the "Jenga tower" of their lives, referring to the game in which players build a tower of wooden blocks and then remove one block at a time until the structure collapses
- Dean - "OK,this all sounds like Sad Times at Bitchmont High." This alludes to the 1982 teen comedy Fast Times at Ridgemont High with Judge Reinhold, Phoebe Cates, and Jennifer Jason Leigh.
- "This House is a Hotel" - by The Wind and The Wave (plays right before the first victim is killed)
