  • "Katmandu" by Bob Seger
(plays during "The Road So Far")


Dean: So who snatched Heaven’s most adorable angel?
Crowley: What on earth could you possibly need now, Viggor? I've given you every torture instrument known to man—short of a Neil Diamond album.
Kevin : I can't enjoy a world I need to save, Dean. I can enjoy it when this is all over with. For right now, there's nothing more important than this.
Mr. Hinkley: Are you serious?
Castiel: Yes, that is his serious face.
Dean: I’m just tired of all the fighting. And, you know, maybe I’m a little bit jealous. I could never separate myself from the job like you could. Hell, maybe it’s time for at least one of us to be happy.

Trivia & References

Torn and Frayed is a Rolling Stones song from the 1972 album "Exile on Main St."
In the hospital when Dean and Cas speak to the burning bush victim, Jim Michaels is paged over the intercom. Director and producer Bob Singer does the voice over for the nature documentary Sam watches. Source
When Castiel asks Dean for help, Dean open his laptop and it displays Bustyasianbeauties.com, one of his favourite Porn sites. Embarrassed, he covers it from Cas while he shuts it down.
Garth's boat is called Fizzle's Folly, presumably after his friend Mr Fizzles.
Castiel: The amount of pain an angel must be in not just to manifest through shrubbery, but to burn— Dean, we have to find him before it’s too late.

Writer Jenny Klein confirmed that the "shubbery" reference was a shout-out to Monty Python source , and the famous Monty Python "Knights of Ni" scene from the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Watch the scene here.
Samandiriel chants in Enochian. Castiel says that "Vah-teh-kah-rah" translates as "obey". Crowley translates "Zoh-bah-leh-ta. Sah-teh-voch-leh" as “You, celestial being, have been created to be an angel of the Lord.”
Mr Hinckley: Sounded like Klingon to me.

Klingon is a language spoken by the race of the same name in Star Trek.


Osric Chau reported that during the rehearsal of the scene where Dean says that he finds Linda Tran attractive, Jensen was saying things too crude to repeat! Source.
