Subsequently, he design and abilities of Probabilitor the Annoying resembles Will's dream avatar from that same film, down to the over-sized collar and lightning from the fingertips.

** The same tree, when Dipper mentions the real world and it becomes a creepy grey-black version of itself, says: [[BenDrowned You shouldn't have done that...]]

* Norman giving Mabel a wreath of daisies is a twofer - a reference to the phrase "pushing up daisies", ''and'' to Film/{{Frankenstein}}'s monster picking flowers with a small girl in an important scene.

** Even funnier considering that the entire episode's plot of entering someone's dream to steal their secret from a locked safe can be seen as a WholePlotReference to ''Film/{{Inception}}''.

* Stan trying to scare trick-or-treaters by having Waddles pretend to burst out of his chest is an ''Franchise/{{Alien}}'' reference.
** It's done twice in this episode, actually. At the very end, [[spoiler: Soos does it to the Summerween Trickster,]] and it's no less obvious. It's also done in nearly the exact same way as it did to Stan.

* Stan discusses with a few young boys what can scare them, and they show him a video of a cute little kitten, which is abruptly cut by a [[JumpScare screaming woman]]. This is a reference to the rather popular ScreamerPrank videos, where a seemingly normal videos is abruptly cut by a creepy image.
** The kid who shows said screamer somewhat resembles [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons Nelson Muntz]].
* Dipper grabs a sword and shield to fight the Trickster; the shield has [[Franchise/TheLegendOfZelda a golden triangle on it]].
** Even better, Dipper's holding the sword in his left hand and the shield in his right. [[note]]Link is usually a lefty in Zelda games.[[/note]]

** Or it could be an Music/{{ACDC}} lightning bolt sweater.



* Dipper has the same mark in his body as Kenshiro from Manga/FistOfTheNorthStar.
** ... mainly because that is the most noticeable part of the constellation Ursa Major, aka the Big Dipper. If you take the two stars on the far right of the 'bowl' (Dubhe and Merak), draw a straight line between them, and continue the line out the top, you reach Polaris the ''North Star''.

** Further reference might be Dipper's "Lone Pine" hat?

Bill's voice is [[https://twitter.com/_AlexHirsch/status/515689891334987776 "a bad impression"]] of Creator/DavidLynch, or, more specifically, of Gordon Cole, the character he played in the same series.

* The portal we see [[spoiler:hidden under the Mystery Shack]] over several episodes is almost a dead on replica of the Franchise/{{Stargate}}, complete with the alien runes/constellations carved on the sides. The portal ring even spins when activated.
** It also bears an uncanny resemblance to [[Webcomic/{{Homestuck}} the Tumor]], flanked by two star-filled cylinders.
