EPISODE ALLUSIONS - Supernatural Wiki
Dean: Or it's a Bigfoot. You know, and he's some kind of a...alcoholo-porno addict. Kinda like a deep-woods Duchovny.

Referencing the villainous Kryptonian general from DC Comics who battles Superman.

Dean: You see, with great power comes great...

Referencing the line commonly attributed to the comic book character Spider-Man, created by Stan Lee and Steve Ditko, and omitting the word "responsibility." The line, as first used in Amazing Fantasy #15, is actually "With great power there must also come great responsibility."

Dean: Run, Forrest, run!

Referencing the 1994 movie, based on the novel by Winston Green. The movie stars Tom Hanks as Forrest Gump, a not particularly intelligent man who finds himself unwittingly at the center of many historic moments of the 50s, 60s, and 70s while seeking to be together with his childhood friend Jenny

Dean: What's this, like a Harry and the Hendersons deal?

Referencing the 1987 movie starring John Lithgow, Melinda Dillon, and Don Ameche. The Henderson family hit an animal which turns out to be Bigfoot. They take the creature into their home and have to deal with the authorities and the hunter out to capture "Harry."
