* In "Love Hurts," Murphy's line about disliking coincidence is very similar to a common phrase used by {{Spenser}}. This is further established when Harry comments on Murphy's dislike of "reading Parker." (There's actually a very strong Parker influence on ''The Dresden Files'' in general; the often-used blurb of "Spenser crossed with Merlin" is very apt.)

* The RPG makes the same ''YoungFrankenstein'' joke ("Werewolf?" "There wolf") as ''Fool Moon''. In the index, between the entries Wereravens and Werewolves. Classic.
