* ProductPlacement: Indirectly. Jason and Grant work for Roto-Rooter as their day jobs; thus many shows open with them doing work when they get a call about a new case, and they often refer to themselves as "plumbers ''for Roto-Rooter''". In addition, the opening credits for most of the seasons show them standing by a Roto Rooter van in their work clothes, which changes to them standing by a TAPS van in TAPS gear. For the 2011 and 2012 seasons, this is now a moving Roto-Rooter van that turns into a TAPS van.

* {{Crossover}}: A live Halloween special with DestinationTruth in which they were investigating a haunted castle in Ireland, said to have a banshee. The episode went all night, but was condensed into a hour for reruns.
