As they are examining the body in the procedural cop show, a close up of the victim's head shows a yellow #12 evidence tag close by, but there is no #12 tag in any of the wider camera angles. See more »


Trickster: So, boys, now what? Stare at each other for the rest of eternity?
Dean Winchester: Well first of all you're gonna bring Cas back from wherever you stashed him.
Trickster: [sarcastic] Oh am I?
Dean Winchester: [angry] Yeah. Or we're going to *dunk* you in some holy oil, and deep-fry ourselves an archangel!

Dean Winchester: Cas, you okay?
Castiel: [glaring at the archangel] I'm fine. Hello Gabriel.
Trickster: Hey bro. How's the search for Daddy going? Let me guess: awful.

The best Supernatural parody!
5 November 2009 | by Red_IdentitySee all my reviews

I love how Supernatural makes fun of other subjects, whether it makes parodies of classic monster movies, ghost reality-shows, and actual TV shows as shown here. This has got to be the best of all of the parodies Supernatural does. I love how it took a stab at Grey's Anatomy (the joke about ghosts in a hospital show was incredible) and crime shows like CSI. Above that, the opening segment of the sitcom was the funniest, because it was so unexpected. However, we do get some mythology subplots in here, and important information is revealed that makes the show seem to all fit in place. Incredible episode, best yet of the season!
