Story notes Edit

- Apparently Mexican scalps are greasier than Indian scalps. Who knew?
- Tulip O'Hare has been searching for Carlos for two years.
- Oddly enough, this is the second episode in a row that involves Emily Woodrow's bathroom excursions. In "Monster Swamp", Jesse came to the house and her son told him that "she's pooping", just as Emily exited the bathroom, still zipping up her pants. In this episode, Tulip barges in on her while she is urinating.

- The song that is playing when Jesse Custer is standing under the tree is "Heaven Says Hello" by Sonny James.

- Donnie Schenck makes reference to Linus Dilmoe in this episode. Linus is the school bus driver and pedophile that Jesse confronted in "See".

- Cassidy: This is a nice place ye got yerself here. I see linoleum is hip again. As a bonus, there's an old feller passed out in the back.
- Tulip O'Hare: Now I found him. All's that's left to do is go over there and get him, tie him to a table, cut his freakin' balls off, and, over and over, stab him in the face with a screwdriver.
- Jesse Custer: Where exactly you guys from?
- DeBlanc: Exactly? We're from heaven, both of us.
- Jesse Custer: Heaven... as in the sky above?
- DeBlanc: Is there another?
