Thanks for signing up to comment on this. It means a lot. The section with the best writing (Portents) was pretty directly inspired by this scene, where the general structure and general beats are the same, although it deviated more as I went through the scene. The other ones weren't directly influenced by any scene, but I wouldn't be surprised if some influences slipped in. The Spooktacular was, of course, directly lifted from season 3 episode 22, when ghosts take over the west wing.
