* YouHaveGotToBeKiddingMe: The boys' reaction to seeing who the First Mate of the ''Titanic'' was. Happens a second time after Russo gets hit by a bus moments after they'd supposedly saved his life. Then for a RuleOfThree when they realize Fate is out to get them and come across [[OhCrap some street performers juggling hatchets]].

* [[AMillionIsAStatistic 50,000 Is A Statistic]]: Bobby says the obvious solution is to make Balthazar go back in time and re-sink the ''Titanic'', since never being born isn't the same as, and is probably better than, dying a bloody and improbable death. He changes his mind when he's told Ellen will die.

* AlternateUniverse: When the boys get into a classic Mustang, we know something is up. Turns out Balthazar created one by stopping the ''Titanic'' from sinking. Among other things, [[spoiler:Ellen and Jo are still alive]], Cuba's open to tourism and is apparently capitalistic, Céline Dion is a [[RichardNixonTheUsedCarSalesman destitute lounge singer somewhere in Quebec]], and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Impalas were never made]]. When Sam and Dean find out about the alteration, Sam semi-lampshades the ButterflyOfDoom trope (and Dean tells him not to make "[[Film/TheButterflyEffect Kutcher]] references").

The Winchesters hop into their classic Ford Mustang to investigate mysterious deaths that are only connected by the ship upon which the victims' ancestors immigrated to America--a liner called the ''RMS Titanic''. Meanwhile, Bobby and his wife Ellen have a talk...[[AlternateUniverse wait, what]]?

The Winchesters wake up in the Impala, with Céline Dion's greatest hit blasting over the radio. Both of them think they had a very odd shared dream, until Cas shows up and explains most of what happened. Dean asks if Balthazar really messed with history just because he hated a movie. [[BlatantLies Looking extremely shifty]], Cas assures Dean that he did. The Winchesters go up to Bobby's house to find him sleeping, and resolve not to tell him how happy he almost was.
