Episode Quotes
Amelia Richardson: Look, last night at the bar. I just wanted to make sure it was you. You know, peeping in my window.
Sam: "Peeping." You make it so sound, so, uh...
Amelia Richardson: Stalkerish.

Crowley: What on earth could you possibly need now, Viggo? I've given you every torture instrument known to man. Short of a Neil Diamond album.

Cultural References
Hinckley: Sounded like Klingon to me.

The Klingons are one of the primary non-human races in the Star Trek franchise. Villains in the original series, they embraced honor and became allies of the Federation in Star Trek: The Next Generation.

Crowley: Let's find out what makes this flying monkey tick.

The flying monkeys are the minions of the Wicked Witch of the West in L. Frank Baum's Oz novels as well as the 1939 movie.
