This episode makes a rare reference to a Canadian serial killer duo: Paul Bernardo & Karla Homolka, in dialogue by Spencer Reid (Matthew Gray Gubler). See more

Reid also mispronounces Karla's last name, he says 'Homolko'. See more

I think I speak for both of us when I say we'd love to make this part of our regular routine again.
