Episode Goofs

When Tyler and Klaus are fighting in the woods, they run through a line of hanging laundry and pull down a yellow sheet with them as they roll. The camera angle changes and the yellow sheet is suddenly hanging up on the clothing line again.

Cultural References
Fright Night: At the beginning of the episode, Marcel stands on the balcony in front of all of his vampires and says, "Welcome to Fight Night."

This is a reference to the 1985 movie 'Fright Night' in which vampire Jerry Dandridge (Chris Sarandon) says "Welcome to Fright Night."

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart: Davina tells Josh that she likes to listen to classical music, like "Puccini, Bach and Mozart."

Giacomo Puccini, Johann Sebastian Bach and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart were all classical music composers.
