- The Alcoholic: Sam is jogging but Dean is drinking more than ever.
- An Aesop: Sam tries to draw one from this episode's events, to encourage Dean to talk about what's bothering him. Naturally, Dean refuses to admit there's anything wrong in the first place.
- Bait-and-Switch: Turns out both parties are witches, not just Maggie.
- Bee Bee Gun: Don has hornets swarm around Dean's face.
- Been There, Shaped History: Apparently Maggie had Pity Sex with Christopher Columbus.
- Big "NO!": Maggie when her paintings start to run.
- Blood Magic: Maggie's spells include drawing sigils on photos using her own blood.
- Bury Your Gays / Off with Her Head!: Sue.
- Conflict Killer: Two Hunters bursting in on the two witches causes them to team up.
- Did You Just Punch Out Cthulhu?: Don manages to easily stun a Leviathan. The effect lasts for days and leaves it very weak when it snaps out of it.
- Distinction Without a Difference: "They will get out, just not alive."
- Drowning My Sorrows: Dean, as per usual.
- Empathic Environment: Plants die and Don't statue cracks when the couple get really pissed at each other.
- Eye of Newt: Dean's really not happy when Sam dumps a bag of chicken feet next to him as he's about to tuck into his cream pie. Turns out it's the wrong ingredient anyway.
- Freeze-Frame Bonus: Dean searches for "freaky accidents".
- Grow Old with Me: Inverted. Don refers to Maggie as the woman he " wants to never grow old with", but the meaning is the same.
- Hysterical Woman: Don's personal assistant is freaking out after being hexed. Dean mutters, "Shall I slug her?"
- Karma Houdini: The witches never receive any punishment for the people they killed.
- The Masochism Tango: Don and Maggie. Their "arguments" consist of ruining each other's lives and killing each other's friends and lovers. They make Buffy and Spike seem functional.
- Mistaken for Cheating: Jenny with Don. And, apparently, a "Medici chick".
- Nail 'Em: One of the victims are killed by a nail gun firing nails through a porter potty. Somewhat lampshaded when the local cops comment that they can't figure out where the nail gun had been plugged in during the attack.
- Out-of-Character Moment: Sam and Dean letting the Starks away with their crimes is a pretty big one.
- Power Incontinence: As the witches' argument gets worse, they start losing control over their powers. They go from killing plants to blacking out the town.
- Punk in the Trunk: Chett has a dead body in his trunk for a snack. It's poetic justice that he ends up hooded and chained in the back seat of the Impala.
- Punny Name: BM Disposal on a Porta-Potty.
- Quick Nip: Dean is drinking on the job now.
- Shipped in Shackles: Chett is chained up in the back of the Impala. Though it's clear only the spell is holding him.
- Shout-Out: Bewitched, both versions. There's a sneaky one to Dragon Ball Z when the witches are charging their spell and Don's Magical Gesture looks like he's preparing a Kamehameha.
- Tempting Fate: Dean assures Bobby he's got the spell ingredients right. He hasn't.
- This Means War!: Maggie after her art show is ruined.
- Walk-In Chime-InLeviathan: And it's not over yet.
- You Owe Me: Dean says they owe Don one after he saves them from the Leviathan. It's implied Don is returning the favour for them saving his marriage — he originally went there to remove the hex coins Maggie left in their hotel room.
- You're Cute When You're Angry: "You're so cute when you try to tell me what to do."
