Trivia & References

The episode title "Slash Fiction" is a play of two references. First it is a reference to the Tarantino movie Pulp Fiction. Slash fiction is also the name of a genre of fanfiction which pairs two characters of the same gender in a sexual relationship – see Slash for more information.
S.E. Hinton - famous author and Supernatural fan - has a part in the episode. Read Tweets by S.E. Hinton from the set
Bobby: Great. Just what we need — a Mensa Monster.
Mensa is an organization for really really smart people.
Sodium borate, or borax, is a natural occurring boron salt found in the Middle East, South America, North America, and Asia. It is a common chemical used in all manner of products from water softeners to pesticides. At high concentrations it can cause skin irritation in humans.
The robbery of the burger shop in St. Louis by the Leviathans references the diner robbery in Pulp Fiction when the fake Dean jumps up on a table. His line "If anyone moves, I'll execute every last one of you". is the same as Pumpkin's in the movie - minus a motherfucker. The promo for the episode had Leviathan!Dean being bleeped as he said "motherfucker" Bobby makes an additional reference by referring to the Leviathans as "Pumpkin" and "Honey Bunny" Diner scene with Pumpkin and Honey Bunny from Pulp Fiction.
The first locations visited by the Leviathans are Jericho, California (1.01 Pilot), Black Water Ridge, Colorado (1.02 Wendigo), Lake Manitoc, Wisconsin (1.03 Dead in the Water). Sam recognizes the pattern of attacks just before they attack St. Louis, Missouri (1.06 Skin). It was in St. Louis that Sam and Dean first encountered a shapeshifter, and it was due to the shapeshifter that Dean's death was first faked. Ankeny, Iowa where the boys are arrested was where the events of 1.07 Hookman took place.
Sam: The usual?

Dean: Rhymes with sing songs!

Dean is referring to Ding Dongs - a small chocolate cake with a creamy centre. In the gas station the box Sam picks up is called "Bing Bongs".
Frank: Okay, we can Blue Steel you up some new I.D. - Mr and Mr Smith

Blue Steel was the name of a signature modeling pose belonging to the really really ridiculously handsome Derek Zoolander in the movie Zoolander. See Blue Steell for numerous references in the show, and by Jensen and Jared, to the look.

The alias' "Mr and Mr Smith" may be a reference to the eponymous spy couple in the movie starring Brad pitt and Angelina Jolie - Mr and Mrs Smith.
Dean: Nobody puts baby in a corner!

Sam: You know that's a line from...
Dean: Swayze movie! Swayze always gets a pass!

"Nobody puts baby in a corner" is a line from Dirty Dancing"
While mimicking Bobby, Chet reveals that he had lots of issues with his father, and his favourite singer is Joni Mitchell.


Bobby's confrontation with Chet, in which a chained Chet takes Bobby's form and taunts him before being beheaded, echoes the confrontation between Crowley and the Alpha Shapeshifter in 6.10 Caged Heat.
