At the beginning of the episode, Sam is researching for possible ways to get Dean out of his deal. One of the pages refers to the German legend of Faust. According to the legend, Faust was a highly accomplished scholar who is bored and/or unsatisfied with what he has accomplished. He makes a deal with the Devil's servant Mephistopheles for unlimited knowledge and worldly pleasures in exchange for his soul. As a condition to the deal, after a set period of years, the Devil/Mephistopheles will collect Faust's soul and he will be eternally damned. See more
The beginning of the episode is supposed to take place in Oak Park, Illinois where you see a lovely view of Chicago in the distance. However, there is nowhere in Oak Park where you'd be able to see Chicago. See more
How could you make that deal?
Because I couldn't live with you dead.
