Did You Know?


In the opening scene a taxidermist has small animals dressed up like Game of Thrones characters. In the late 1800s a taxidermist named Walter Potter set up baby animals in anthropomorphis tableaux. These oddly popular dioramas included: baby bunnies in school; kittens getting married; squirrels playing cards; and robins at a funeral. The Victorian whimsey that saw these as cute is now so outdated as to go beyond quaint and into creepy. See more »


If the spell only extends the animal powers to the user, Chef Leo's clothing should not have changed patterns when he was camouflaged into the wall before attacking Sam. There would have been a "floating" chef uniform that Sam surely would have spotted. See more »


Dean Winchester: Wait a minute. Can I hear all animals?
Colonel the Dog: Yep. Animals have a universal language - like Esperanto. But this one actually caught on.
Pigeon: And I'm just getting started, too. Brewing a real big one. Ha. Bet your ride's gonna look sweet in white.
Sam Winchester: What's he saying?
Dean Winchester: You - He's being a douchebag!
Pigeon: Who are you calling "douchebag", douchebag?
Dean Winchester: Oh, shut it, you winged rat!
Sam Winchester: Dude.
Dean Winchester: What?
Sam Winchester: Hey. Just calm down. Just get in the car.

Great episode. Dean is truly in his element. And the colonel is great. The boys should take him home.
