Timeline and Location

See the Timeline page also.

Location is the Warner Bothers Studios in Burbank, Los Angeles. The cemetery is Hollywood Forever on Santa Monica Boulevard



See the Music page also.


The set of Hell Hazers II may look familiar. The water tower is from 2.08 Crossroad Blues (episode) and the cabin is from 2.16 Roadkill (episode). The deer's head on the wall has appeared in the boys' motel room in 1.14 Nightmare (episode), John's room in 1.21 Salvation, and Steve Wandell's home in 2.14 Born Under a Bad Sign (episode).


Sam: Does this feel like swimming weather to you? It's practically Canadian.

Brad: See, but if the ghosts are in hell, how do they hear the chanting?

Tara: Salt. Doesn't that sound silly? I mean why would a ghost be afraid of salt?

Dean: Hey, we gotta go check out Johnny Ramone's grave when we're done here.
Sam: You want to dig him up too?
Dean: Bite your tongue heathen!

Walter: You know, the history, the lore in my draft was completely accurate. We could've got it right for the first time in this whorehouse of a town. But you tore it to shreds. You replaced it with cleavage and fart jokes. It was real.

Sam: You find out there is an afterlife and this is what you do with it?
Martin: I needed a little jazz on the page.
