Did You Know?


The title of this episode is a play on a running joke from the 1980s comedy film Airplane (aka Flying High), where one character, when told something hard to accept, says "Surely you can't be serious?" to which the other responds "I am serious, and don't call me Shirley." See more »


At 2:21, we see that Metatron has a beer glass that is nearly 3/4 head (foam). At 2:35, Metatron takes a swig of the nearly all head beer, but, when he sits down and we see a close-up of him, all of the head is gone and the beer glass is half full. See more »


Metatron: This is some kind of punishment, isn't it? For my sins. A limbo where I get to spend eternity in a crappy bar with a hack writer.
Chuck Shurley: Dude.
Metatron: Sorry, Chuckles, it's not just any hack writer - a Prophet of the Lord. Give me a break. Tell me at least the beer in here is real.

Unbelievable Episode!

Here I was, getting ho-hummed by the previous episodes of one of my favorite shows. Then came "Don't Call Me Shurly". I was....words can't describe...amazed!!!! (for the lack of a better one) The writers have outdone themselves on this one. Questions were answered, or were beginning to be answered that I have thought of not only through the show, but by myself through the years. Well, in a way only Supernatural can answer them. If this keeps up, I will have to buy this and any future episode that deals with this theme.

This is THE BEST episode I have seen yet! I have favorite episodes and entire seasons, but this one is truly awesome! I am looking forward to watching every week more than I ever have. Good work writers, staff and actors!!!!!! A MUST SEE. I am going to watch it again, and possible a few more times. That's how good it is!
