* ArbitrarySkepticism: Dean briefly dismisses Sam's "fairy tales coming to life" theory as "a little crazy." Sam counters thusly:
-->'''Sam:''' What, crazier than every day of our lives?\\
'''Dean:''' {{Touche}}.
* AtTheCrossroads: Sam this time. Though he doesn't actually make a deal.
* BecauseISaidSo: Dean, although, according to Sam, their dad is the only one for whom this is a valid argument.
* TheBigBadWolf: A young man with a Wile E. Coyote tattoo gets [[MindControl hypnotized]] into being this.
* BoomHeadshot: How Sam disposes of the crossroads demon with the modified Colt.
* Creator/TheBrothersGrimm
* ChekhovsGunman: The Crossroad Demon mentions that her boss is the one who holds power over Dean's soul. We eventually [[Recap/SupernaturalS05E10AbandonAllHope meet him]] in Season 5, and he will go on to become a major rival and occasional ally of the Winchesters all the way until [[Recap/SupernaturalS12E23AllAlongTheWatchtower the end]] of Season 12.

* TitleDrop:
-->'''Dean:''' Oh, wait, I thought all those things ended with everybody living happily ever after.
-->'''Sam:''' No, no, not the originals. See, the Grimm brothers' stuff was kinda like the folklore of its day, full of sex, violence, cannibalism...it got sanitized over the years, turned into Disney flicks and bedtime stories.
