|Who Died and How|
|John: Take your brother outside as fast as you can and don't look back! Now, Dean, go!|
|Dean: Whoa, easy, tiger.|
Sam: Dean? ... You scared the crap out of me!
Dean: That's 'cause you're out of practice.
Sam grabs Dean's hand and yanks, slamming his heel into Dean's back and Dean to the floor.
Dean: Or not.
|Dean: Dad's on a hunting trip. And he hasn't been home in a few days.|
|Sam: I swore I was done hunting. For good.|
Dean: Come on. It wasn't easy, but it wasn't that bad.
Sam: Yeah? When I told Dad I was scared of the thing in my closet, he gave me a .45.
Dean: Well, what was he supposed to do?
Sam: I was nine years old! He was supposed to say, don't be afraid of the dark.
Dean: Don't be afraid of the dark? What are you kidding me? Of course you should be afraid of the dark. You know what's out there.
|Sam: You think Mom would have wanted this for us?|
|Dean: So what are you gonna do? You're just gonna live some normal, apple pie life? Is that it?|
Sam: No. Not normal. Safe.
Dean: And that's why you ran away.
Sam: I was just going to college. It was Dad who said if I was gonna go I should stay gone. And that's what I'm doing.
|Dean: I can't do this alone.|
Sam: Yes you can.
Dean: Yeah, well, I don't want to.
|Sam: You and Dad still running credit card scams?|
Dean: Yeah, well, hunting ain't exactly a pro ball career. Besides, all we do is apply. It's not our fault they send us the cards.
|Sam: I swear, man, you've gotta update your cassette tape collection.|
Sam: Well, for one, they're cassette tapes.
|Dean: Well, house rules, Sammy. Driver picks the music, shotgun shuts his cake hole.|
Sam: You know, Sammy is a chubby twelve-year-old. It's Sam, okay?
|Dean: Agent Mulder, Agent Scully.|
|Dean and Sam: What do they talk about?|
|Dean: You can pretend all you want, Sammy. But sooner or later you're going to have to face up to who you really are.|
Sam: And who's that?
Dean: You're one of us.
|Sam: If it weren't for pictures I wouldn't even know what Mom looks like. And what difference would it make? Even if we do find the thing that killed her, Mom's gone. And she isn't coming back.|
|Dean: That Constance chick, what a bitch!|
|Sam: You smell like a toilet.|
|Dean: No chick-flick moments.|
Sam: Alright... jerk.
|Police: So. Fake US Marshal, fake credit cards. You got anything that's real?|
Dean: My boobs.
|Dean: You found her weak spot. Nice work, Sammy.|
Sam: Yeah, I wish I could say the same for you. What were you thinking, shooting Casper in the face, you freak?
Dean: Hey, saved your ass. I'll tell you another thing. If you screwed up my car? I'll kill you.
|Sam: We got work to do.|
|Haley: And you're hiking out in biker boots and jeans?|
Dean: Well, sweetheart, I don't do shorts.
|Haley: You didn't pack any provisions. You guys are carrying a duffel bag. You're not rangers. So who the hell are you?|
Dean: Sam and I are brothers, and we're looking for our father. He might be here, we don't know. I just figured that you and me, we're in the same boat.
Haley: Why didn't you just tell me that from the start?
Dean: I'm telling you now. 'sides, that's probably the most honest I've ever been with a woman... ever. So we okay?
Haley: Yeah, okay.
Dean: And what do you mean I didn't pack provisions? (pulls out peanut M&M's and walks away.)
|Sam: I mean, why are we still even here?|
Dean: This is why. (holds up their dad's journal) This book. This is Dad's single most valuable possession. Everything he knows about every evil thing is in here. And he's passed it on to us. I think he wants us to pick up where he left off. You know, saving people, hunting things. The family business.
|Sam: How do you do it? How does Dad do it?|
Dean: Well for one, them. I mean, I figure our family's so screwed to hell, maybe we can help some others. Makes things a little bit more bearable. I'll tell you what else helps. Killing as many evil sons of bitches as I possibly can.
|(Sam finds a trail of peanut M&M's on the ground)|
Sam: It's better than bread crumbs.
|Dean: Chow time, you freaky bastard! Yeah, that's right, bring it on, baby, I taste good.|
|Dean: Hey, you want some white meat, bitch! I'm right here!|
|Sam: But in the meantime? I'm driving.|
|Dean: You know, Sam, we are allowed to have fun once in a while. (Points to the waitress in short shorts) That's fun.|
|Sam: People don't just disappear, Dean. Other people just stop looking for them.|
|Andrea: Must be hard, with your sense of direction, never being able to find your way to a decent pickup line.|
|Sam: 'Kids are the best?' You don't even like kids.|
Dean: I love kids.
Sam: Name three children that you even know.
(Dean thinks and Sam begins to walk away. Dean scratches his head.)
Dean: I'm thinking!
|Sam: There are cases-going through a traumatic experience-could make people more sensitive to premonitions, psychic tendencies.|
Dean: Whatever's out there, what if Lucas is tapping into it somehow? I mean, it's only a matter of time before somebody else drowns, so if you got a better lead, please.
Sam: Alright, we got another house to find.
Dean: The only problem is there's about a thousand yellow two-stories in this county alone.
Sam: See this church? I bet there's less than a thousand of those around here.
Dean: Oh, college boy thinks he's so smart.
|Dean: I just don't wanna to leave this town 'til I know the kid's okay.|
Sam: Who are you, and what have you done with my brother?
Dean: Shut up.
|Dean: Alright, if you're gonna be talking now, this is a very important phrase, so I want you to repeat it back to me one more time.|
Lucas: Zeppelin rules!
Dean: That's right. Up high.
|Dean: You liar. 'Cause I was up at three, and you were watching the George Foreman infomercial.|
Sam: Hey, what can I say? It's riveting TV.
|Dean: Man, I look like one of the Blues Brothers.|
Sam: No you don't. You look more like a... seventh-grader at his first dance.
|Sam: Are you okay?|
Dean: No, not really.
Sam: What? What's wrong?
Dean: Well, I kind of have this problem with, uh...
Dean: It's never really been an issue until now.
Sam: You're joking, right?
Dean: Do I look like I'm joking? Why do you think I drive everywhere, Sam?
Sam: All right. Uh, I'll go.
Sam: I'll do this one on my own.
Dean: What are you, nuts? You said it yourself, the plane's gonna crash.
|Sam: You're humming Metallica?|
Dean: Calms me down.
|Dean: Dude, stow the touchy-feely, self-help yoga crap, it's not helping.|
|Dean goes over to the Impala's trunk, unlocking it and opening it. Dean divests himself of weapons, then closes the trunk.|
Dean: I feel naked.
|Sam: Why'd you let me fall asleep?|
Dean: Cause I'm an awesome brother. So what did you dream about?
Sam: Lollipops and candy canes.
|Dean: Do I look like Paris Hilton?|
|Reflection: You never told her the truth-who you really were. But it's more than that, isn't it? Those nightmares you've been having of Jessica dying, screaming, burning-You had them for days before she died. Didn't you!?! You were so desperate to be normal, to believe they were just dreams. How could you ignore them like that? How could you leave her alone to die!?! You dreamt it would happen!!!|
|(Dean smashes the mirror)|
Dean: Hey Sam?
Dean: This has got to be like... what? 600 years of bad luck?
|Dean: You're kidding. You still keep in touch with your college buddies?|
Sam: Why not?
Dean: Well, what exactly do you tell 'em? You know, about where you've been, what you've been doin'?
Sam: I tell 'em I'm on a road trip with my big brother. I tell 'em I need some time off after Jess.
|Dean: Look, it sucks, but in a job like this, you can't get close to people, period.|
Sam: You're kind of anti-social, you know that?
|Dean: Hey. Remember when I said this wasn't our kind of problem?|
Dean: Definitely our kind of problem.
|Dean: You know, I just had a sick thought. When the shapeshifter changes shape-maybe it sheds.|
Sam: That is sick.
|Dean: I hate to say it, but that's exactly what I'm talkin' about. You lie to your friends because if they knew the real you, they'd be freaked. It's just-it'd be easier if-|
Sam: If I was like you.
Dean: Hey, man, like it or not, we are not like other people. But I'll tell you one thing. This whole gig- (He holds up a pistol) -it ain't without perks.
|Dean: I think we're close to its lair.|
Sam: Why do you say that?
Dean: Because there's another puke-inducing pile next to your face.
Sam: Oh, God!
|Shapeshifter Dean: I swear, the more I learn about you and your family-I thought I came from a bad background.|
Sam: What do you mean, learn?
Shapeshifter Dean: He's sure got issues with you. You got to go to college. He had to stay home. I mean, I had to stay home. With Dad. You don't think I had dreams of my own? But Dad needed me. Where the hell were you?
Sam: Where is my brother?
Shapeshifter Dean: I am your brother. See, deep down, I'm just jealous. You got friends. You could have a life. Me? I know I'm a freak. And sooner or later, everybody's gonna leave me.
Sam: What are you talkin' about?
Shapeshifter Dean: You left. Hell, I did everything Dad asked me to, and he ditched me, too. No explanation, nothin', just ffwt. Left me with your sorry ass. But, still, this life? It's not without its perks.
|Dean: That better be you, Sam, and not that freak of nature.|
|Dean: Well, he's not stupid. He picked the handsome one.|
|Sam: Come on. We gotta find a phone, call the police.|
Dean: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. You're gonna put an APB out on me.
|Dean: (after looking at the breaking news report with a drawn picture of himself on TV) Man! That's not even a good picture!|
|Dean: All right, but first I wanna to find that handsome devil and kick the holy crap out of him!|
|Dean: (Upset) The thought of him drivin' my car.|
Sam: All right, come on.
They start walking.
Dean: It's killing me!
Sam: Let it go.
|Dean: Sorry, man.|
Sam: About what?
Dean: I really wish things could be different, you know? I wish you could just be... Joe College.
Sam: No, that's okay. You know, the truth is, even at Stanford, deep down, I never really fit in.
Dean: Well, that's 'cause you're a freak.
Sam: Yeah, thanks.
Dean: Well, I'm a freak, too. I'm right there with ya, all the way.
Sam: Yeah, I know you are.
|Dean: You know, I gotta say-I'm sorry I'm gonna miss it.|
Sam: Miss what?
Dean: How many chances am I gonna have to see my own funeral?
|Dean: Your, uh, half-caf, double vanilla latte is gettin' cold over here, Francis.|
Sam: Bite me.
|Dean: I told him you were a dumbass pledge and that we were hazing you.|
Sam: What about the shotgun?
Dean: I said that you were hunting ghosts and the spirits were repelled by rock salt. You know, typical Hell Week prank.
Sam: And he believed you?
Dean: Well, you look like a dumbass pledge.
|Dean: Dude, sorority girls! Think we'll see a naked pillow fight?|
They climb up to the roof, then climb into the window. Dean seems to fall on top of Sam, as they talk offscreen.
Dean: Oh, sorry!
Sam: Be quiet.
Dean: You be quiet!
Sam: You be quiet!
|Dean has been digging at the unmarked grave for a while. He brings up another shovelful. He is almost finished.|
Dean: That's it. Next time, I get to watch the cute girl's house.
After another shovelful, he's done. He breaks through the wooden top of the coffin and sees Jacob Karns' remains.
Dean: Hello, preacher.
He pours salt and lighter fluid on the preacher's bones then lights a match.
Dean: Goodbye, preacher.
He throws the match into the grave and watches the bones burn in flames.
|Sam: You must have missed something.|
Dean: No. I burned everything in that coffin.
Sam: Did you get the hook?
Dean: The hook?
Sam: Well, it was the murder weapon, and in a way, it was part of him.
Dean: So, like the bones, the hook is a source of his power.
Sam: So if we find the hook...
Sam and Dean: We stop the Hook Man.
|Dean is coming out of a pool hall, after hustling money playing pool.|
Sam: You know, we could get day jobs once in a while.
Dean is counting the bills.
Dean: Hunting's our day job. And the pay is crap.
Sam: Yeah, but hustling pool? Credit card scams? It's not the most honest thing in the world, Dean.
Dean: Well, let's see honest.
He holds out one hand.
Dean: Fun and easy.
He holds out the other hand. Dean gestures that "fun and easy" outweighs "honest".
Dean: It's no contest. Besides, we're good at it. It's what we were raised to do.
|Dean: Growin' up in a place like this would freak me out.|
Dean: Well, manicured lawns, "How was your day, honey?" I'd blow my brains out.
Sam: There's nothing wrong with "normal".
Dean: I'd take our family over normal any day.
|Larry: Let me just say - we accept homeowners of any race, religion, color, or... sexual orientation.|
Dean: We're brothers.
|Lynda: Well, let me just say that we accept homeowners of any race, religion, color, or... sexual orientation.|
Dean smiles sarcastically and chuckles.
Dean: Right. Um... I'm gonna go talk to Larry. (to Sam) Okay, honey?
He walks away, smacking Sam on his ass.
|Larry walks away with Matt. Dean joins Sam, glancing back towards Larry and Matt.|
Sam: Remind you of somebody?
Dean looks over at Larry, who is yelling at Matt. Dean looks back at Sam, confused.
Dean: Dad never treated us like that.
Sam: Well, Dad never treated you like that. You were perfect. He was all over my case. (pause) You don't remember?
Dean: Well, maybe he had to raise his voice, but sometimes, you were out of line.
Sam: Right. Right, like when I said I'd rather play soccer than learn bowhunting.
Dean: Bowhunting's an important skill.
Sam rolls his eyes.
|Sam: Dean, you know what most dads are when their kids score a full ride? Proud. Most dads don't toss their kids out of the house.|
Dean: I remember that fight. In fact, I seem to recall a few choice phrases comin' out of your mouth.
Sam: You know, truth is, when we finally do find Dad... I don't know if he's even gonna wanna see me.
Dean: Sam, Dad was never disappointed in you. Never. He was scared.
Sam: What are you talkin' about?
Dean: He was afraid of what could've happened to you if he wasn't around. But even when you two weren't talkin'... he used to swing by Stanford whenever he could. Keep an eye on you. Make sure you were safe.
Sam: Why didn't you tell me any of that?
Dean: Well, it's a two-way street, dude. You could've picked up the phone.
|Sam: If we don't do something, Larry's family will be dead by sunrise. So how do we break the curse?|
Dean: You don't break a curse. You get out of its way.
|Sam: I wanna find Dad.|
Dean: Yeah, me too.
Sam: Yeah, but I just... I want to apologize to him.
Dean: For what?
Sam: All the things I said to him. He was just doin' the best he could.
Dean: Well, don't worry, we'll find him. And then you'll apologize. And then within five minutes, you guys will be at each other's throats.
Dean looks back at Sam. Sam laughs, a real laugh, before sharing a look with Dean.
Sam: Yeah, probably.
They sit in silence for a few seconds.
Sam: Let's hit the road.
|Dean: I've been cruisin' some websites. I think I found a few candidates for our next gig. A fishing trawler found off the coast of Cali - its crew vanished. And, uh, we got some cattle mutilations in West Texas. Hey. Am I boring you with this hunting evil stuff?|
Sam: No. I'm listening. Keep going.
Dean: And, here, a Sacramento man shot himself in the head. Three times. Any of these things blowin' up your skirt, pal?
|Sam: Dean, I know where we have to go next.|
Sam: Back home. Back to Kansas.
|Sam: I have these nightmares.|
Dean: I've noticed.
Sam: And sometimes... they come true.
|Sam: Yeah, but how much do we know? I mean, how much do you actually remember?|
Dean: About that night, you mean?
Dean: Not much. I remember the fire... the heat. And then I carried you out the front door.
Sam: You did?
Dean: Yeah, what, you never knew that?
|Voicemail: This is John Winchester. If this is an emergency, call my son, Dean 866-907-3235.|
|Dean: Dad? I know I've left you messages before. I don't even know if you get 'em. But... I'm with Sam. And we're in Lawrence. And there's somethin' in our old house. I don't know if it's the thing that killed Mom or not... but... I don't know what to do. So, whatever you're doin', if you could get here. Please. I need your help, Dad.|
|Missouri: Well? Sam and Dean, come on already, I ain't got all day. Well, lemme look at ya. Oh, you boys grew up handsome.|
(She points a finger at Dean.)
Missouri: And you were one goofy-lookin' kid, too.
|Missouri: Boy, you put your foot on my coffee table, I'm 'a gonna whack you with a spoon.|
|Missouri: That an EMF?|
|Missouri: Don't you worry, Dean's gonna clean up this mess. Well, what're you waiting for, boy? Get the mop! And don't cuss at me!|
(Dean walks into the kitchen and finds Sam, and the fire figure. As he looks at the fire figure, he steps in front of Sam to protect him, and he raises his gun.)
Sam: No, don't! Don't!
Dean: What, why?!
Sam: Because I know who it is. I can see her now.
(Suddenly, the fire is blown out. Standing in front of them is Mary Winchester, her hair softly blowing around her face, exactly as she was the night she died. Her eyes open, and she gives a soft smile at her boys.)
Dean: (softly) Mom?
(Mary smiles and steps over to him.)
(Mary walks away from him and goes to Sam. She looks up at her youngest, smiling sadly.)
Mary: Sam. I'm sorry.
Sam: For what?
(She looks at him sadly, but says nothing. She walks away from them and looks up at the ceiling. Her voice takes on a creepy echo, filled with power.)
Mary: You, get out of my house. And let go of my son.
|Sam: What happened?|
Missouri: Your mom's spirit and the poltergeist's energy, they cancelled each other out. Your mom destroyed herself goin' after the thing.
Sam: Why would she do something like that?
Missouri: Well, to protect her boys, of course.
|Sam: What's happening to me?|
|John: Mary's spirit ... do you really think she saved the boys?|
Missouri: I do. John Winchester, I could just slap you. Why won't you go talk to your children?
John: (tearfully) I want to. You have no idea how much I wanna see 'em. But I can't. Not yet. Not until I know the truth.
|Sam: You think Dad was texting us?|
Dean: He's given us coordinates before.
Sam: The man can barely work a toaster, Dean.
|Dean: Hey Sam, who do you think is the hotter psychic: Patricia Arquette, Jennifer Love Hewitt, or you?|
|Dean: We gotta find 'em and burn 'em. Just be careful though. The only thing that makes me more nervous than a pissed off spirit... is the pissed off spirit of a psycho killer.|
|Dean: I got a question for ya. You've seen a lot of horror movies, yeah?|
Kat: I guess so.
Dean: Do me a favor. Next time you see one? Pay attention. When someone says a place is haunted...don't go in!
|Sam: Are you okay?|
Gavin: I was running. I think I fell.
Sam: You were running from what?
Gavin: There was... there was this girl. Her-her-her face. It was all messed up.
Sam: Okay listen, did this girl... did she try and hurt you?
Gavin: What? No, she... uh...
Sam: She what?
Gavin: She... kissed me.
Sam: Uh... um... but... but she didn't hurt you, physically?
Gavin: Dude! She kissed me. I'm scarred for life!
Sam: Well, trust me, it could have been worse. Now, do you remember anything else?
|Kat: Get me out of here!|
Sam: Kat, it's not going to hurt you. Listen to me! Y-You've got to face it. You've got to calm down.
(Dean turns to Sam, astonished.)
Dean: She's gotta what?!
Kat: (shouting) I have to what?!
Sam: These spirits, they're not trying to hurt us, they're trying to communicate. You gotta listen to it. You gotta face it.
(Kat has her face turned away from the ghost, her head pressed against the door.)
Kat: You face it!
|Dean: Man, I hope you're right about this.|
Sam: Yeah, me too.
|Kat: So, how do you guys know about all this ghost stuff?|
Sam: It's kinda our job.
Kat: Why would anyone want a job like that?
Sam: I had a crappy guidance counselor.
|Sam: Alright, I've looked everywhere. There's no other way out.|
Gavin: So what the hell are we gonna do?
Sam: Well for starters, we're not gonna panic.
Gavin: Why the hell not!
|Dean: Damn it, damn it, don't shoot! It's me!|
|Dean: Alright. Watch yourselves... and watch out for me.|
(Dean looks over. Sam reaches up and wipes the blood.)
Sam: Step back from the door.
(Dean rises to his feet, his eyes going from the gun to Sam's face.)
Dean: Sam, put the gun down.
Sam: Is that an order?
Dean: Nah, it's more of a friendly request.
(Sam raises his gun to point at Dean's chest.)
Sam: 'Cause I'm getting pretty tired of taking your orders.
Dean: I knew it. Ellicott did something to you, didn't he?
Sam: For once in your life, just shut your mouth.
Dean: What are you gonna do, Sam? Gun's filled with rock salt. It's not gonna kill me.
(Sam shoots Dean in the chest. The shot blasts him backwards through the hidden door to fall on the floor.)
Sam: No. But it'll hurt like hell.
|Dean: Sam! We gotta burn Ellicott's bones and all this will be over. You'll be back to normal.|
Sam: I am normal. I'm just telling the truth for the first time. I mean, why are we even here? 'Cause you're following Dad's orders like a good little soldier? Because you always do what he says without question? Are you that desperate for his approval?
Dean: This isn't you talking, Sam.
Sam: That's the difference between you and me. I have a mind of my own. I'm not pathetic, like you.
Dean: So what are you gonna do, huh? You gonna kill me?
Sam: You know what, I am sick of doing what you tell me to do. We're no closer to finding Dad today than we were six months ago.
Dean: Well, then here. Let me make it easier for you.
(Dean reaches in his jacket pocket and pulls out his Smith & Wesson toward Sam.)
Dean: Come on. Take it. Real bullets are gonna work a hell of a lot better than rock salt.
(Sam hesitates, eying the gun.)
Dean: Take it!!
(Sam grabs the gun and points it down at Dean's face.)
Dean: (softly) You hate me that much? You think you could kill your own brother? Then go ahead. Pull the trigger. Do it!
(Sam pulls the trigger with a look of complete anger. The chamber is empty. Confused, Sam stares down at Dean. He tries again, again, and once more. Dean uses a right cross to knock Sam to the ground and struggles to get up. Dean moves to stand over Sam, who is on the ground, trying to stand up himself.)
Dean: Man, I'm not going to give you a loaded pistol.
(Sam stares up at him. Dean delivers a vicious right cross to knock Sam out, almost falling as he does so. Dean pats his brother.)
Dean: Sorry, Sammy.
|(Sam wakes up and Dean looks over at him.)|
Dean: You're not going to try and kill me, are ya?
(Sam raises his hand to push at his painfully flexed jaw.)
Dean: Good. Because that would be awkward.
|Vince: If I only had a brain...|
(Holly looks at Vince.)
Holly: We wouldn't be lost.
|Sam: You're after it, aren't you? The thing that killed Mom.|
John: Yeah. It's a demon, Sam.
Sam: A demon? You know for sure?
|John: Listen, Sammy, I, uh... I also know what happened to your girlfriend. I'm so sorry. I would've done anything to protect you from that.|
|John: Listen, Sammy, that's why I'm calling. You and your brother, you gotta stop looking for me. Alright, now, I need you to write down these names.|
|John: I've given you an order. Now, you stop following me, and you do your job. You understand me?|
|Dean: Alright, look, I know how you feel.|
Sam: Do you? How old were you when Mom died? Four? Jess died six months ago. How the hell would you know how I feel?
|Dean: Dad said it wasn't safe. For any of us. I mean, he obviously knows something that we don't, so if he says to stay away, we stay away.|
Sam: I don't understand the blind faith you have in the man. I mean... it's like you don't even question him!
Dean: Yeah, it's called being a good son!
|Dean: You're a selfish bastard, you know that? You just do whatever you want. Don't care what anybody thinks.|
Sam: That's what you really think?
Dean: Yes, it is.
Sam huffs, and grabs the last bag, swinging it over his shoulder, before facing Dean once more.
Sam: Well, then this selfish bastard is going to California.
|Dean: Hey, I'm taking off! I will leave your ass, you hear me? |
Sam: That's what I want you to do.
Dean: Goodbye, Sam.
|Dean: Dude, you fugly.|
|Dean: Nice tat.|
|Sam: Just trying to get to California.|
Meg: You know, the next bus isn't until tomorrow.
Sam: Yeah. Yeah, that's the problem.
Meg: Why? What's in Cali that's so important?
Sam: Just something I've been looking for. For a long time.
|Dean: You know, my brother could give you this puppy dog look, and you'd just buy right into it.|
|Meg: No. It's just... because my family said so, I'm supposed to sit there and do what I was told. So I just went on my own way instead. I'm sorry. The things you say to people you hardly know.|
Sam: No, no, it's okay. I know how you feel. Remember that brother I-I mentioned before, that I was road-tripping with? It's, uh, it's kind of the same deal.
Meg: And that's why you're not riding with him anymore?
(Sam shakes his head, also giving a small, sad chuckle. Meg raises her beer bottle.)
Meg: Here's to us. The food might be bad, and the beds might be hard. But at least we're living our own lives. And nobody else's.
|Sam: Well, you figure out what it is, you can figure out a way to kill it.|
Dean: I know. I'm actually on my way to a local community college. I've got an appointment with a professor. You know, since I don't have my trusty, sidekick, geek boy to do all the research.
Sam: You know, if you're hinting you need my help, just ask.
Dean: I'm not hinting anything.
|Dean: Sam. You were right. You gotta do your own thing. You gotta live your own life.|
Sam: Are you serious?
Dean: You've always known what you want. And you go after it. You stand up to Dad. And you always have. Hell, I wish I... Anyway... I admire that about you. I'm proud of you, Sammy.
Sam: I don't even know what to say.
Dean: Say you'll take care of yourself.
Sam: I will.
Dean: Call me when you find Dad.
Sam: (sadly) OK. Bye, Dean.
|Meg: Who was that?|
Sam: My brother.
Meg: What'd he say?
|Meg: But... I don't understand. You're running back to your brother? The guy you ran away from? Why? Because he won't pick up his phone? Sam. Come. With me, to California.|
Sam: I can't. I'm sorry.
Meg: Why not?
Sam: He's my family.
|Dean: I hope your apple pie is frickin' worth it!|
|Dean: How'd you get here?|
Sam: I, uh... stole a car.
Dean: That's my boy! Keep an eye on that scarecrow. He could come alive any minute.
(Sam looks over, after finishing untieing Dean.)
Sam: What scarecrow?
|Dean: So. I drop you off somewhere?|
Sam: No, I think you're stuck with me.
Dean: What made you change your mind?
Sam: I didn't. I still wanna find Dad. And you're still a pain in the ass. But, Jess and Mom - they're both gone. Dad is God knows where. You and me. We're all that's left. So, ah, if we're gonna see this through... We're gonna do it together.
Dean: Hold me, Sam. That was beautiful.
|Sam: You should be kissing my ass. You were dead meat, dude.|
|Dean: That fabric softener teddy bear? Ooh, I'm gonna hunt that little bitch down.|
|Dean: (Serious) Hey, you better take care of that car. Or, I swear, I'll haunt your ass.|
Sam: I don't think that's funny.
Dean: Oh, come on, it's a little funny.
|Dean: Look, Sammy, what can I say, man, it's a dangerous gig.|
Dean: I drew the short straw. That's it, end of story.
Sam: Don't talk like that, alright? We still have options.
Dean: What options? Yeah, burial or cremation.
(Sam can NOT believe he's hearing this, shaking his head, looking away.)
Dean: And I know it's not easy. But I'm gonna die. And you can't stop it.
(Sam's resolve has now firmed. He nods his head.)
Sam: Watch me.
|Voicemail: This is John Winchester. I can't be reached. If this is an emergency, call my son, Dean. 866-907-3235. He can help.|
(Sound of a beep.
Sam is fighting tears.)
Sam: Hey, Dad. It's Sam. Uh...you probably won't even get this, but, uh...it's Dean. Oooo...He's sick, and uh...the doctors say there's nothing they can do. Um...but, uh, they don't know the things we know, right? Um, so, don't worry, cause I'm, uh...gonna do whatever it takes to get him better. Alright. Just wanted you to know.
|Sam: What the hell are you doing here?|
Dean: I checked myself out.
Sam: Are you crazy?
Dean: Huh, I'm not gonna die in a hospital where the nurses aren't even hot.
Sam: You know, this whole I-laugh-in-the-face-of-death thing? It's crap.
|Dean: You're not gonna let me die in peace, are you?|
Sam: I'm not gonna let you die, period. We're going.
|Roy: You ready?|
Dean: Look, no disrespect, but ahh, not exactly a believer.
Roy: You will be, son. You will be.
|Dean: Can I ask you one last question?|
Roy: Course you can.
Dean: Why? Why me? Out of all the sick people, why save me?
Roy: Well, like I said before, the Lord guides me. I looked into your heart, and you just... stood out from all the rest.
Dean: What did you see in my heart?
Roy: A young man with an important purpose. A job to do. And it isn't finished.
|Sue Ann: (from behind Sam, startling him) I gave your brother life and I can take it away.|
(Sue Ann stands there, eerily calm. Sam is furious. He grunts as he tips over the table the altar is on, then runs at Sue Ann but she is already up the stairs. She closes the hatches and secures it with a beam. Sam stretches to push against the doors, but can't break free. He keeps trying.)
Sue Ann: Sam, can't you see? The Lord chose me to reward the just and punish the wicked. And your brother is wicked, and he deserves to die just as Layla deserves to live. It's God's will. Goodbye, Sam.
|Layla: You wanna hear something weird?|
Layla: I'm okay. Really. I guess... if you're gonna have faith, you can't just have it when the miracles happen. You have to have it when they don't.
Dean: So what now?
Layla: God works in mysterious ways. Goodbye Dean.
(She rises and moves toward the door. Dean closes his eyes for a second, remaining still with a pained look. He then rises and turns to face Layla.)
Dean: Hey. Um, I'm not much of the praying type... but... I'm gonna pray for you.
Layla: Well... There's a miracle right there.
|Sam: You mean you dated somebody? For more than one night.|
|Sam: You told her, the secret! Our big family rule number one. We do what we do and we shut up about it. For a year and a half I do nothing but lie to Jessica, and you go out with this chick in Ohio a coupla times and you tell her everything?|
|Sam: I miss conversations that didn't start with 'this killer truck'.|
|Sam: Think that'll do it?|
(The ghost truck appears, headlights on and engine revving. Both brothers look up in surprise.)
Dean: I guess not.
|Sam: So burning the body had no effect on that thing?|
Dean: Sure it did. Now it's really pissed.
|Sam: Where you goin'?|
Dean: Goin' for a little ride.
Dean: Gonna lead that thing away. That busted piece of crap, you gotta burn it.
Sam: How the hell am I supposed to burn a truck, Dean?
|Sam: Evil spirits cross over hallowed ground, sometimes they're destroyed. So I figured, maybe, that would get rid of it.|
Dean: Maybe? Maybe!! What if you were wrong?
Sam: Huh. Honestly that thought hadn't occurred to me.
(Dean stares at his phone, then hangs up. Mimics Sam.)
Dean: Well, it honestly didn't occur to me.
(Dean drops his head, before he slaps the steering wheel. He huffs, and shakes his head slightly.)
Dean: I'm gonna kill him.
|(Dean takes a cocktail sausage from the coffee table. Chewing contentedly, he looks at Sam shaking his head.)|
Sam: Just... tone it down a little bit, Father.
|Roger: What are you guys, missionaries? Leave me alone.|
|Sam: Dean, I'm scared man. These nightmares weren't bad enough, now I'm seeing things when I'm awake? And these, visions, or whatever, they're getting... more intense. And painful.|
Dean: Come on man, you'll be all right. It'll be fine.
Sam: What is it about the Millers? Why am I connected to them? Why am I watching them die? Why the hell is this happening to me?
Dean: I don't know Sam, but we'll figure it out. Okay? We've faced the unexplainable every single day. This is just another thing.
Sam: No. It's never been us. It's never been in the family like this. Tell the truth, you can't tell me this doesn't freak you out.
(Dean stares straight ahead for a long moment.)
Dean: (deadpan) This doesn't freak me out.
|Dean: Our family's not cursed. We just... had our dark spots.|
Sam: Our dark spots are... pretty dark.
Dean: You're... dark.
|Dean: You wanna kill her, you gotta go through me first.|
|Sam: Yeah, maybe. Aren't you worried, man? Aren't you worried I could turn into Max or something?|
Dean: Nope. No way. You know why?
Sam: No. Why?
Dean: Cause you got one advantage that Max didn't have.
Sam: Dad? Because Dad's not here, Dean.
Dean: No. Me. (smirking) As long as I'm around, nothin' bad is gonna happen to you.
|Dean: Now then. I know what we need to do about your premonitions. I know where we have to go.|
Dean: (deadpan) Vegas.
(Dean grins at Sam. Sam tilts his head, looks away, looks back, does bitchface and walks out the door to the car.)
Dean: What? Come on man. Craps tables. We'd clean up.
|Kathleen: Does your cousin have a drinking problem?|
Dean: Sam? Two beers and he's doin' karaoke.
|Dean: Officer, look, uh, he's family. I kind of-I kind of look out for the kid. You gotta let me go with you.|
Kathleen: I'm sorry, I can't do that.
Dean: Well, tell me something. Your county has its fair share of missing persons. Any of 'em come back?
(Kathleen drops her head.)
Dean: Sam's my responsibility. And he's comin' back. I'm bringin' him back.
|Dean: Here's the thing. When-when... when we were young, I pretty much pulled him from a fire. And ever since then, I've felt responsible for him. You know, like it's my job to keep him safe. I'm just afraid if we don't find him fast...|
(His voice breaks.)
Dean: Please. He's my family.
|Jenkins: Why don't you give it up, Sammy? There's no way out.|
Sam: Don't... call me... Sammy!
|Dean: I gotta start carrying paper clips.|
|Dean: Have you seen 'em?|
Sam: Yeah. Dude, they're just people.
Dean: And they jumped you? Must be gettin' a little rusty there, kiddo.
|Dean: Well, I'll say it again - demons I get. People are crazy.|
|(Dean points at Jared.)|
Dean: I'm gonna kick your ass first.
(He points to Lee. Pa comes up behind Dean with an iron pan.)
Dean: And then yours.
(Pa hits Dean over the head with a pan. Dean falls to the floor, unconscious.)
|Pa: You a cop?|
Dean: If I tell you, you promise not to make me into an ashtray?
|Dean: Oh, eat me. No, no, no, wait, wait, wait-you actually might.|
|Dean: If you hurt my brother, I'll kill you, I swear. I'll kill you all.|
(Pa walks towards the open front door. Dean is screaming.)
Dean: (yelling) I will kill you all!
|Dean: Don't ever do that again.|
Sam: Do what?
Dean: Go missin' like that.
|Sam: So, you got sidelined by a thirteen-year-old girl, huh?|
Dean: Oh, shut up.
Sam: Just sayin', you're gettin' rusty there, kiddo.
Dean: (chuckling) Shut up.
|Landlady: Well, no offense, but your alarm's about as useful as boobs on a man.|
|Dean: I talked to the bartender.|
Sam: Did you get anything?
(Sam glances up at Dean and back down.)
Sam: Besides her number?
Dean: Dude. I'm a professional. I'm offended that you would think that...
(Sam gives him a knowing look.)
Dean: All right, yeah.
(He chuckles and holds up a napkin with the bartender's phone number on it.)
Sam: You mind doin' a little bit of thinking with your upstairs brain, Dean?
|Dean: So, to recap, the only successful intel we've scored so far is the bartender's phone number.|
|Sam: I think there's somethin' strange going on here, Dean.|
Dean: Yeah, tell me about it. She wasn't even that into me.
|Dean: Now, why don't you go give that girl a private strip-o-gram?|
Sam: Bite me.
Dean: No, bite her.
Dean (voiceover): Don't leave teeth marks, though, just enough to where-
(Sam hangs up.)
|(Meg is dressing. A woman notices Sam watching Meg's window.)|
Sam: I'm - oh, no, no, no, I'm just-
|Dean: So, hot little Meg is summoning the Daeva?|
Sam: Looks like she was using that black altar to control the thing.
Dean: So, Sammy's got a thing for the bad girl.
|Sam: God, could you imagine if we actually found that damn thing? That demon?|
Dean: Let's not get ahead of ourselves, all right?
Sam: I know. I'm just sayin'... what if we did? What if this whole thing was over tonight? Man, I'd sleep for a month. Go back to school. Just... be a person again.
Dean: You wanna go back to school?
Sam: Yeah, once we're done huntin' the thing.
Sam: Why, is there somethin' wrong with that?
Dean: No. No, it's, uh, great. Good for you.
Sam: I mean... what are you gonna do when it's all over?
Dean: It's never gonna be over. There's gonna be others. There's always gonna be somethin' to hunt.
Sam: But there's got to be somethin'... that you want for yourself-
Dean: Yeah, I don't want you to leave the second this thing's over, Sam.
|Dean: You and me and Dad. I mean, I want us to... I want us to be together again. I want us to be a family again.|
Sam: Dean, we are a family.
Dean: (softly) Well...
Sam: I'd do anything for you. But things will never be the way they were before.
Dean: (sadly) Could be.
Sam: I don't want them to be. I'm not gonna live this life forever. Dean, when this is all over... you're gonna have to let me go my own way.
|Meg: Sam. I have to say, this puts a real crimp in our relationship.|
|Dean: Hey, Sam? Don't take this the wrong way, but your girlfriend... is a bitch.|
|Sam: Go to hell.|
Meg: Baby, I'm already there.
|Meg: Come on, Sam. There's no need to be nasty.|
(She leans in to whisper in his ear.)
Meg: I think we both know... how you really feel about me.
(Meg moves to sit on Sam's legs.)
Meg: You know, I saw you... watching me. Changing in my apartment. It turned you on, didn't it?
(Dean rolls his eyes.)
Dean: Get a room, you two.
Meg: I didn't mind. I liked that you were watching me. Come on, Sammy. You and I can still have a little dirty fun.
(She begins kissing his neck.)
Sam: You wanna have fun? Go ahead then. I'm a little tied up right now.
|Meg: Now, were you just trying to distract me while your brother cuts free?|
Sam: No. No.
(Sam shakes his head no. Meg sits back down on his legs, satisfied.)
Sam: It's because I have a knife of my own.
|Dean: Dad, it was a trap. I didn't know, I'm sorry.|
John: It's all right.
John: I thought it might've been.
Dean: Were you there?
John: Yeah, I got there just in time to see the girl take the swan dive. She was the bad guy, right?
Dean and Sam: Yes, sir.
|Sam: Dad, you don't have to worry about us.|
John: Of course I do. I'm your father.
(John's voice breaks.)
|Dean: Sam! Listen to me! We almost got Dad killed in there. Don't you understand? They're not gonna stop. They're gonna try again. They're gonna use us to get to him. I mean, Meg was right. Dad's vulnerable when he's with us. He... he's stronger without us around.|
(He puts a hand on his father's shoulder.)
Sam: No. After everything-
(John reaches up to grasp Sam's wrist, giving a small amount of comfort.)
Sam: after all the time we spent lookin' for you-please. I gotta be a part of this fight.
John: Sammy, this fight is just starting. And we are all gonna have a part to play. For now, you've got to trust me, son. Okay, you gotta let me go.
|Sam: Man we're not kids anymore, Dean. We're not going to start that crap up again.|
Dean: Start what up?
Sam: That prank stuff. It's stupid, and it always escalates.
Dean: Aw, what's the matter Sammy? Afraid you're going to get a little Nair in your shampoo again, huh?
(Sam looks over at Dean, frustrated.)
Sam: All right, just remember you started it.
Dean: Oh ho. Bring it on baldy.
|James (voiceover): It was the scariest thing I ever|
James: saw in my life, I swear to God.
Guy 2: From the moment we walked in, the walls were painted black.
Girl: I think it was blood.
James: All these freaky symbols.
Guy 2: Crosses and stars and...
Guy 2: Pentacostals.
Girl: Whatever. I had my eyes closed the whole time.
James: But I can damn sure tell you this much. No matter what anybody else says...
Girl: That poor girl.
Guy 2: With the black...
Girl: Red hair, just-just-just hanging there.
Guy 2: Without even moving.
Girl: She was real.
James: One hundred percent.
Guy 2: And kinda hot.
(After a short pause.)
Guy 2: Well, you know, in a dead sort of way.
(Dean's eyebrows raise and he chuckles, then rolls his head towards Sam.)
Sam: And... how'd you find out about this place anyway?
(All three sitting together now at an indoor table. They answer in unison.)
Guy 2: Craig.
James: Craig took us.
|Dean: Who ya gonna call!|
|Dean: Arghh! I hate rats.|
Sam: You'd rather it was a ghost?
|Ed: Sweet Lord...|
Harry: ...of the Rings. RUN!!!
|Dean: What the hell is this symbol? It's buggin' the hell outta me. This whole damn job's buggin' me. I thought the legend said Mordechai only goes after chicks.|
Sam: It does.
Dean: All right. Well, I mean that explains why he went after you, but why me?
|Dean: People believe in Santa Claus. How come I'm not getting hooked up every Christmas?|
Sam: Cuz you're a bad person.
|Sam: Kinda makes you wonder. Of all the thing we hunted... how many existed just cuz people believed in them.|
Dean: Yeah truce. At least for the next 100 miles.
|Dean: Well, because I'm the oldest, which means I'm always right.|
Sam: No it doesn't.
Dean: Yeah, it totally does.
|Sam: Dude! Dude! I am not using this ID.|
(Sam shows Dean the ID.)
Dean: Why not?
Sam: Because it says 'Bikini Inspector' on it?
Dean: Don't worry. She won't look that close, all right? Hell, she won't even ask to see it. It's all about confidence Sammy.
(He spins Sam to face the desk and keeps walking.)
Receptionist: Can I see some ID?
(Further down the corridor Dean sniggers. Sam throws Dean a dirty look, before smiling at the receptionist.)
Sam: Yeah of course.
(Sam reaches back into his pocket, quickly flashing the ID, holding his thumb over part of it.)
(Sam approaches a grinning Dean, giving major bitchface. Dean gives him a wide grin, arms open wide.)
Dean: See. Told you it'll work.
|John: All right. You know the drill, Dean. Anybody calls, you don't pick up. If it's me, I'll ring once, and then call back. You got that?|
Young Dean: Mm-hmm. Don't answer the phone unless it rings once first.
John: Come on, dude, look alive. This stuff's important.
Young Dean: I know, it's just... we've gone over it like... a million times and you know I'm not stupid.
John: I know you're not, but it only takes one mistake, you got that?
John: Lock the doors, the windows, close the shades. And most important...
Young Dean: Watch out for Sammy.
(Both turn to look at Young Sammy, sprawled on the chair watching cartoons on TV.)
Young Dean: I know.
John: Alright. If something tries to bust in?
Young Dean: Shoot first, ask questions later.
(John is proud, and he grabs Dean's shoulder.)
John: That's my man.
|Sam: But if Dad went after it, why is it still breathing air?|
|(Young Sammy reaches into the box and grabs the toy. He holds it toward Young Dean.)|
Young Sam: D'you want the prize?
|Sam: An old person huh?|
Sam: In a hospital? Phew.
(Sam turns away, shaking his head and sniggering.)
Sam: Better call the Coast Guard.
|Sam: "I was sleeping with my peepers open?" Hahahaha.|
Dean: I almost smoked that old girl, I swear. It's not funny.
Sam: Oh man, you shoulda seen your face, Dean.
Dean: Yeah, laugh it off. Now we're back to square one.
|Sam: I'm surprised you didn't draw on him right there.|
Dean: Yeah, well, first of all, I'm not going to open fire in a friggin' pediatrics ward.
Sam: Good call.
Dean: Second, wouldn't have done any good, 'cause the bastard's bullet proof unless he's chowing down on somethin'. And third... I wasn't packing, which is probably a really good thing 'cause I probably would have just burned a clip in him off of principle alone.
Sam: You're getting wise in your old age, Dean.
Dean: Damn right.
|Michael: I thought I was having a nightmare.|
Dean: I'd give anything not to tell you this... but sometimes nightmares are real.
|Michael: You said you're a big brother.|
Michael: You'd take care of your little brother? You'd do... anything for him?
Dean: Yeah I would.
(Sam hears this, and knows it to be true.)
Michael: Me too. I'll help.
|Dean: You okay, little brother?|
|Sam: Sometimes I wish that...|
Sam: I wish I could have that kinda innocence.
(Sam smiles slightly. Dean looks down before facing Sam.)
Dean: If it means anything, sometimes I wish you could too.
|Sam: Dean, ah... no thanks, I can get my own dates.|
Dean: Yeah, you can, but you don't.
(Sam looks up sharply at Dean.)
Sam: What's that supposed to mean?
|Sam: I don't understand, Dean. We burned the damn thing.|
Dean: Yeah, thank you Captain Obvious.
|Sam: Dude. Enough already.|
Sam: What? Ever since we got here, you've been trying to pimp me out to Sarah. Just back off, all right?
Dean: Well, you like her don't you? All right, you like her, she likes you, you're both consenting adults.
(Dean shrugs. Sam is frustrated, voice rising.)
Sam: What's the point, Dean? We'll just leave. We always leave.
Dean: Well I'm not talking about (chuckles) marriage, Sam.
Sam: (agitated) You know, I don't get it. What do you care if I hook up?
Dean: (calmly) Cause then maybe you wouldn't be so cranky all the time.
(Sam is surprised at him. Dean's eyebrows goes up to make his point. Sam huffs out a breath and looks away. Dean sits up in bed, leaning forward.)
Dean: You know, seriously Sam, this isn't about just hooking up, okay? I mean, I- I think that this Sarah girl could be good for you. And I don't mean any disrespect but I'm... I'm sure this is about Jessica, right?
(Sam looks over.)
Dean: Now I don't know what it's like to lose somebody like that... but... (softly) I would think that she would want you to be happy.
(Sam is quiet, tears in his eyes.)
Dean: God forbid, have fun once in a while... wouldn't she?
(Sam thinks, and a slow smile briefly appears.)
Sam: (softly) Yeah I know she would.
(Dean nods his head. Sam shakes his head, then sighs heavily.)
Sam: Yeah you're right. Part of this is about Jessica. But not the main part.
Dean: What's it about?
(Sam refuses to answer.)
Dean: Yeah, alright.
(Dean lies back again and crosses his arms.)
Dean: Well we still gotta see that painting, which means you still gotta call Sarah, so...
(Dean points out the door after Sarah.)
Dean: Marry that girl.
|Dean: Notice anything strange here?|
Sarah: Ah... where do I start?
|Dean: Am I interrupting something?|
Sarah: Not at all.
(Dean looks between them.)
Dean: Huh. Apparently.
|Sarah: You guys seem to be uncomfortably comfortable with this.|
Sam: Well, ah, this isn't exactly the first grave we've dug.
(Sam smiles at Sarah.)
Sam: Still think I'm a catch?
|Sam: What kind of house doesn't have salt? Low-sodium freaks!|
|Dean: Sam, you good?|
(Sam slowly looks at Sarah, then gives a half shrug before answering.)
Sam: Not bad.
|(Dean sees Sam kiss Sarah. A smile slowly crosses his face. Sam continues kissing.)|
Dean: That's my boy.
|Dean: You mean protection against demon salt, or, uh, 'Oops, I spilled the popcorn' salt?|
|John (voiceover): Most vampire lore is crap. A cross won't repel them. Sunlight won't kill them, and neither will a stake to the heart. But the bloodlust, that part's true. They need fresh human blood to survive. They were once people, so you won't know it's a vampire, until it's too late.|
|Sam: (grumpily) That's probably what Dad's thinking. 'Course it would be nice if he just told us what he thinks.|
(Dean looks over at sulking Sam.)
Dean: So it is starting.
Dean: Sam, we've been looking for Dad all year. Now we're not with him for more than a couple of hours and there's static already?
Sam: Hmph. No. Look. I'm happy he's okay, all right? I'm happy that we're all working together again.
Dean: Well good.
(Sam is unable to stop from speaking.)
Sam: It's just the way he treats us, like we're children.
Dean: Oh God.
Sam: He-he barks orders at us, Dean. He expects us to follow 'em without question.
Sam: He keeps us on some crap need-to-know deal.
Dean: He does what he does for a reason.
Sam: What reason?
Dean: Our job!
(Sam makes a huff of disagreement.)
Dean: There's no time to argue. There's no margin for error, all right? That's just the way the old man runs things.
Sam: Yeah, well, maybe that worked when we were kids but not anymore, all right? Not after everything you and I have been through, Dean. I mean, are you telling me you're cool with just falling into line, and letting him run the whole show?
(Sam looks at Dean challengingly. Dean gives Sam a long look. He responds weakly, as if he is convincing himself.)
Dean: If that's what it takes.
|(Once in front Sam slams on the brakes, causing the Impala to swerve sideways in front of John's truck. They both stop.)|
Dean: Oh crap. Here we go.
(Sam gets out of the car.)
(Dean follows out of the car.
Sam and John, who is also out of his truck, are both looking angry.)
John: What the hell was that?
Sam: We need to talk.
(John comes to a halt face to face with Sam.)
John: About what?
Sam: About everything. Where we going Dad? What's the big deal about this gun?
Dean: Sammy, come on, we can Q and A after we kill all the vampires.
John: Your brother's right. We don't have time for this.
Sam: Last time we saw you, you said it was too dangerous for us to be together. (yelling) Now out of the blue, you need our help. Now obviously somethin' big is going down, and we wanna know what!
John: Get back in the car.
John: I said get back in the damn car.
Sam: Yeah. And I said no.
|Sam: (mumbles) This is why I left in the first place.|
John: What'd you say?
(Sam swings back.)
Sam: You heard me.
John: Yeah. You left. Your brother and me, we needed you. You walked away, Sam. (yelling) You walked away!!
Dean: Stop it, both of you.
Sam: (yelling) You're the one who said don't come back, Dad! You closed that door, not me. You were just pissed off that you couldn't control me anymore!
(Dean forces them apart.)
Dean: Listen, stop it, stop it. (yelling) Stop it!! That's enough!!
(Sam and John stare at each other, furious, over Dean's head. Dean gets in front of John, crowding him.)
Dean: That means you too.
(Sam gets into the Impala. John turns back to his truck. Dean stands in the middle, alone. He looks from one to the other. He throws out his arms in frustration, talking to the night air.)
|John (voiceover): Back in 1835, when Halley's Comet was overhead, the same night those men died at the Alamo, they say Samuel Colt made a gun. A special gun. He made it for a hunter. A man like us, only on horseback. Story goes, he made thirteen bullets. This hunter used the gun a half dozen times before he disappeared, the gun along with him. 'Til somehow Daniel got his hands on it. They say... They say this gun can kill anything.|
Dean: Kill anything, like supernatural, anything?
Sam: Like the demon.
|John: I don't think I ever told you this but... the day you were born, you know what I did?|
(John smiles slightly. Sam is confused.)
John: I put a hundred bucks into a savings account for you. I did the same thing for your brother. It was a college fund. And every month I'd put in another hundred dollars, until... Anyway my point is, Sam, that... this is never the life that I wanted for you.
Sam: Then why'd you get so mad when I left?
John: You gotta understand somethin'. After your mother passed, all I saw was evil. Everywhere. And all I cared about was... was keeping you boys alive. I wanted you... prepared. Ready. 'Cept somewhere along the line I, uh... I stopped being your father and I... I became your, your drill sergeant.
(Sam slowly starts walking over.)
John: So when you said that you wanted to go away to school, all I could think about - my only thought was-
(Sam sits down across from John.)
John: that you were gonna be alone. Vulnerable. Sammy, it just... it never occurred to me what you wanted. I just couldn't accept the fact that you and me... We're just different.
(Sam laughs, ducking his head.)
(Sam is fighting tears.)
Sam: We're not different. Not anymore. With what happened to Mom and Jess...
(Sam shakes his head, then laughs again.)
Sam: Hell, we probably have a lot more in common than just about anyone.
(John gives a sad smile.)
John: I guess you're right, son.
|Sam: Hey Dad? Whatever happened to that college fund?|
John: Spent it on ammo.
|Dean: (grinning) Nah, I'll pass. I usually draw the line at necrophilia.|
|Dean: Oh. Whuf. Sorry. I don't always stay with a chick that long. Definitely not eternity.|
|Sam: You know, I don't get you. You can't treat us like this.|
John: Like what?
Sam: Like children.
John: You are my children. I'm trying to keep you safe.
|Dean: Then what is it? Why do you want us out of the big fight?|
John: This demon? It's a bad son of a bitch. I can't make the same moves. I'm worried about keepin' you alive.
Dean: You mean you can't be as reckless.
John: Look... I don't expect to make it out of this fight in one piece. Your mother's death... it almost killed me. I can't watch my children die, too. I won't.
|Dean: We're stronger as a family, Dad. We just are. You know it.|
|John: So boys.|
(They turn, slowly lining up to face John.)
Sam: (whispers) Yes sir.
John: You ignored a direct order back there.
Sam: Yes sir.
Dean: Yeah, but we saved your ass.
(Sam's eyes slide sideways at Dean, nervously. John looks steadily at Dean. Dean swallows.)
John: You're right.
(Dean is surprised.)
Dean: I am?
John: It scares the hell out of me. You two are all I've got. But I guess we are stronger as a family.
(John nods. Theme music starts. Dean's thrilled.)
John: So... we go after this damn thing. Together.
Dean and Sam (together): Yes sir.
|Meg: Well. I've lied. A lot. I've stolen. I've lusted. And the other day I met this man. A nice guy, you know? We had a really good chat, sort of like this...|
(Pastor Jim smiles.)
Meg: then I slit his throat and ripped his heart out through his chest.
(Meg blinks and her eyes go black. Pastor Jim is shocked.)
Meg: Does that make me a bad person?
|Sam: So basically, this demon is going after these kids, for some reason. The same way it came for me? So Mom's death... Jessica? It's all 'cause of me?|
Dean: We don't know that Sam.
Sam: (upset) Oh really? 'Cause I'd say we're pretty damn sure, Dean.
Dean: (frustrated) For the last time, what happened to them is not your fault!
Sam: (shouting) Yeah, you're right! It's not my fault! But it's my problem!
Dean: No, it's not your problem! It's our problem!
John: Okay. That's enough.
|John: There's signs. Look, it took me a while to see the pattern but in the days before these fires, signs crop up in an area. Cattle deaths, uh, temperature fluctuations, electrical storms. And then I went back and checked, and...|
Dean: These things happened in Lawrence.
John: A week before your mother died.
(John turns to Sam.)
John: And in Palo Alto... before Jessica. And these signs, they're starting again.
(Sam is fighting tears, but he wants to get the demon.)
John: Salvation, Iowa.
|John: (flatly) A vision.|
Sam: (slowly, painfully) Yes. I saw the demon burning a woman on the ceiling.
Dean: It started out as nightmares, and then it started happenin' while he was awake.
Sam: (wincing) Yeah. It's like - I don't know - it's like the closer I get to anything involving the demon, the stronger the visions get.
John: (to Dean) Alright. When were you going to tell me about this?
(Sam and Dean stop and turn to look at John.)
Dean: We didn't know what it meant.
John: Alright, something like this starts happenin' to your brother, you pick up the phone and you call me.
(Dean dumps the coffee jug and cup back on the counter and strides toward John.)
Dean: Call you? Are you kiddin' me? Dad, I called you from Lawrence, alright? (accusatory) Sam called you when I was dying. I mean, gettin' you on the phone? I got a better chance of winning the lottery!
|Sam: You want us to stay here... and kill this demon by ourselves?|
John: No, Sam. I want to stop losing people we love. I want you to go to school, I want-I want Dean to have a home.
(John turns away from the boys, fighting tears, voice breaking.)
John: I want Mary alive. It's just -
(John turns back.)
John: I just want this to be over.
|Meg: You hear that? That's the sound of your friend dying. Now let's try this again. We know you have the gun, John, word travels fast. So as far as we're concerned, you just declared war. And this is what war looks like. It has casualties.|
|John: All right listen to me. They made the bullets special for this Colt. There's only four of 'em left. Without 'em this gun is useless. You make every shot count.|
Sam: Yes sir.
John: Been waitin' a long time for this fight. Now it's here. I'm not gonna be in it. It's up to you boys, now. It's your fight, you finish this. You finish what I started. You understand?
|Sam: I wanna thank ya.|
(Dean is confused.)
Dean: For what?
Sam: For everything. You've always had my back, you know? Even when I couldn't count on anyone, I could always count on you. And ah... I don't know, I just wanted to let you know. Just in case.
Dean: Whoa whoa whoa, are you kiddin' me?
Dean: Don't say just in case somethin' happens to you. I don't wanna hear that freakin' speech man. Nobody's dying tonight. Not us, not that family. Nobody. Except that demon. That evil son of a bitch inn't getting any older than tonight, you understand me?
|Meg: You shot me! I can't believe you just shot me!!|
|Meg: You're dead John. Your boys are dead.|
(John backs slowly away.)
John: I've never used the gun. How could I know it wouldn't work?
Meg: I'm so not in the mood for this! I've just been shot!
John: Well then, I guess you're lucky the gun wasn't real.
Meg: That's funny, John. We're going to strip the skin from your bones, but that was funny.
|Sam: It's still in there!|
(Dean grabs Sam.)
Dean: Sam. Sam, no!
(Sam struggles against Dean.)
Sam: Dean! Let me go, it's still in there!
Dean: It's burning to the ground! It's suicide!
Sam: (yelling) I don't care!
Dean: I do!
|Dean: So what, you're just willing to sacrifice yourself, is that it?|
Sam: Yeah. Yeah, you're damn right I am.
Dean: Well, that's not going to happen, not as long as I'm around.
Sam: What the hell are you talking about, Dean? We've been searching for this demon our whole lives. It's the only thing we've ever cared about.
Dean: Sam I wanna waste it. I do. Okay? But it's not worth dying over.
Dean: I mean it. If huntin' this demon means gettin' yourself killed... then I hope we never find the damn thing.
Sam: That thing killed Jess. That thing killed Mom.
Dean: You said yourself once, that no matter what we do, they're gone, and they're never comin' back.
(Sam totally loses it, grabs Dean and shoves him hard against the wall.)
Sam: (angry and upset) Don't you say that, not you! Not after all this - don't you say that!
|Bobby: Here ya go.|
Dean: What is this - holy water?
Bobby: That one is.
(Bobby holds out the other flask.)
Bobby: This is whiskey.
|Bobby: Nonsense. Your Daddy needs help.|
Dean: Yeah, but last time we saw you, I mean, you did threaten to blast him full of buckshot. Cocked the shotgun and everything.
Bobby: Yeah, well, what can I say? John just has that effect on people.
|Bobby: I'll tell you something else, too. This is some serious crap you boys stepped in.|
Sam: Oh, yeah? How's that?
Bobby: Normal year, I hear of, say, three demonic possessions? Maybe four, tops?
Bobby: This year I heard of 27, so far. You get what I'm sayin'? More and more demons are walkin' among us. A lot more.
Sam: Do you know why?
Bobby: No, but I know it's somethin' big. Storm's comin'. And you boys, your daddy? You are smack in the middle of it.
|Meg: Didn't I say 'no more crap'? I swear - after everything I heard about you Winchesters, I got to tell you, I'm a little underwhelmed. First Johnny tries to pawn off a fake gun, and then he leaves the real gun with you two chuckleheads. Lackluster, man. I mean, did you really think I wouldn't find you?|
(Dean steps up behind her.)
Dean: Actually, we were counting on it.
(Meg turns to look at him. Dean stares at her and then looks up at the ceiling. Meg also looks up and sees a large protective symbol etched there.)
|Dean: Where's our father, Meg?|
Meg: You didn't ask very nice.
Dean: Where's our father, bitch?
Meg: Jeez. You kiss your mother with that mouth? Oh, I forgot, you don't.
|Bobby: You just go find your Dad. And when you do, you bring him around, woudya? I won't even try to shoot him this time.|
|Dean: I don't care! Sam. I don't care what Dad wants, okay? And since when do you care what Dad wants?|
Sam: We want to kill this demon. You used to want that, too! Hell, I mean, you're the one who came and got me at school!
Sam: You're the one who dragged me back into this, Dean! I'm just trying to finish it!
(A beat. Dean looks up at Sam, and back down, shaking his head. He looks back up.)
Dean: Well, you and Dad are a lot more alike than I thought, you know that? You both can't wait to sacrifice yourself for this thing. But you know what? I'm gonna be the one to bury you!
(Sam doesn't answer. Dean drops his head again, before looking back up.)
Dean: You're selfish, you know that? You don't care about anything but revenge.
Sam: That's not true, Dean. I want Dad back.
|Sam: Wait. Wait.|
Sam: He could be possessed, for all we know.
Dean: What, are you nuts?
Sam: Dean. We got to be sure.
(Dean pauses, looking down at Dad. Sam takes a flask of holy water out of the duffle bag and sprinkles it on John. It has no effect. John moans and starts to come around. He lifts his head to look at Sam with difficulty.)
John: Sam? Why are you splashing water on me?
|Dean: Hey, Sam?|
Dean: You know that guy I shot?
Dean: There was a person in there.
Sam: You didn't have a choice, Dean.
Dean: Yeah, I know. That's not what bothers me.
Sam: Then what does?
Dean: Killing that guy, killing Meg. I didn't hesitate, I didn't even flinch. For you or Dad, the things I'm willing to do or kill, it's just, uh, huh... it scares me sometimes.
(Dean looks back down. John comes into the room.)
John: It shouldn't. You did good.
|Dean: You're not mad?|
John: For what?
Dean: Using a bullet.
John: Mad? I'm proud of ya. You know, Sam and I, we can get pretty obsessed. But you-you... you watch out for this family. You always have.
|Dean: Dad, Sam tried to shoot the demon in Salvation. It vanished.|
John: This is me. I won't miss. Now, the gun, hurry.
(Dean hesitates and looks down at the gun. He looks back up at John, suspiciously.)
John: Son, please.
(Dean starts to back up a few steps, still looking at John.)
John: Give me the gun. What are you doing, Dean?
Dean: He'd be furious.
Dean: That I wasted a bullet. He wouldn't be proud of me, he'd tear me a new one.
(John just looks at him as Dean raises the gun, pointing it at him and cocking it.)
Dean: You're not my Dad.
|Sam: It's you, isn't it?|
Sam: We've been looking for you for a long time.
John/Azazel: Well, you found me.
|Sam: But the holy water?|
John/Azazel: You think something like that works on something like me?
|Sam: I'm gonna kill you!|
John/Azazel: Oh, that'd be a neat trick. In fact,
(John/Azazel puts the Colt down on the table.)
John/Azazel: here. Make the gun float to you there, psychic boy.
|John/Azazel: Ha-ha. Well, this is fun. I could've killed you a hundred times today, but this...|
John/Azazel: this is worth the wait.
|Sam: I wanna know why. Why'd you do it?|
John/Azazel turns to Sam.
John/Azazel: You mean why did I kill Mommy and pretty little Jess?
John/Azazel: You wanna know why? Because they got in the way.
Sam: In the way of what?
John/Azazel: My plans for you, Sammy. You, and all the children like you.
|Dean: Listen, you mind just getting this over with, huh? Cause I really can't stand the monologuing.|
John/Azazel: Funny, but that's all part of your M.O., isn't it? Masks all that nasty pain. Masks the truth.
Dean: Oh, yeah? What's that?
John/Azazel: You know, you fight and you fight for this family, but the truth is - they don't need you. Not like you need them. Sam? He's clearly John's favorite. Even when they fight, it's more concern than he's ever shown you.
(Dean's lips curl up in a snarky smile.)
Dean: I bet you're real proud of your kids, too, huh? Oh wait, I forgot. I wasted 'em.
|John: Sammy!! It's still alive. It's inside me. I can feel it. You shoot me. You shoot me! You shoot me in the heart, son!|
(Sam cocks and aims the gun at John.)
John: Do it now!
Dean: Sam, don't you do it.
Dean: Don't you do it!
John: You've gotta hurry. I can't hold onto it much longer! You shoot me, son! Shoot me! Son, I'm begging you! We can end this here and now! Sammy!!
Dean: (whispers) Sam, no.
John: You do this! Sammy!!
(Sam can't shoot, slowly lowering the gun. John is devastated.)
|Sam: Look, just hold on, alright? The hospital's only ten minutes away.|
John: I'm surprised at you, Sammy. Why didn't you kill it? I thought we saw eye-to-eye on this? Killing this demon comes first. Before me, before everything.
(Sam looks in the rear view mirror at Dean, who is looking back steadily at Sam.)
Sam: No, sir. Not before everything. Look, we've still got the Colt. We still have the one bullet left. We just have to start over, alright? I mean, we already found the demon onc-
(An eighteen wheeler suddenly slams into the passenger side of the Impala at full speed, driving it sideways in front of it, glass going everywhere.)
|Mary dies on November 2, 1983. November 2 is All Souls Day, also called the Day of the Dead in Mexico.|
|Sam: We're not exactly the Bradys.|
Luis: And I'm not exactly the Huxtables.
Sam is referring to the family in the TV show The Brady Bunch, a large patchwork family that stands for the ultimate American middle-class family. His friend mentions the Brady's 80s African-American equivalent from The Cosby Show, the Huxtables.
|Dean: [referring to Jessica's t-shirt] I love the Smurfs.|
The Smurfs was a cartoon series about little blue creatures living in mushroom houses in the woods. Some fans believe that Dean is referring not the smurfs on Jessica's shirt, but to the pair underneath.
|Sam: So he's working overtime on a Miller Time shift. He'll stumble back in sooner or later. [...] Yeah, he's just deer hunting up at the cabin and he's probably got Jim, Jack, and José along with him. I'm just gonna go bring him back.|
All references to alcohol: Miller (beer), Jim Bean (bourbon), Jack Daniels (whiskey), and José Cuervo (tequila). Miller Time refers to a well-deserved break, relaxation, possibly with friends, after a hard day's work.
|Dean: (to two FBI agents) Agent Mulder, Agent Scully.|
FBI Special Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully investigated X-Files, marginalized, unsolved cases involving paranormal phenomena, on the 1990s TV show The X-Files.
|Dean: Okay, thank you, Unsolved Mysteries.|
Unsolved Mysteries was a TV show that featured re-enactments of unsolved crimes, with actors portraying the victims, perpetrators and witnesses. Many of the stories hinted at paranormal phenomenon.
|Dean: Dude, five-oh, take off.|
Derived from the name of the television series Hawaii Five-O, this term is commonly used in East Coast America and the UK as a warning when a police officer is spotted. Popularized by the series The Wire.
|Policeman: So you want to give us your real name?|
Dean: I told you, it's Nugent. Ted Nugent.
Ted Nugent is the first of Dean's rock star aliases. Also possibly a reference to the movie Fletch starring Chevy Chase.
|Policeman: I'm not sure you realize just how much trouble you're in here.|
Dean: We talkin', like, misdemeanor kind of trouble or, uh, squeal like a pig trouble?
"Squeal like a pig" is a reference to a scene in the 1972 horror film Deliverance, in which a suburban man is told to "squeal like a pig" then is brutally raped by crazed mountain men while on a fishing trip. The scene has been listed as one of the 100 Scariest Movie Moments (#63).
Deliverance is also referenced in The Benders and Family Remains.
|Sam: What were you thinking, shooting Casper in the face, you freak?|
Reference to the famous cartoon series Casper, the Friendly Ghost.
|When the Winchester brothers first meet Haley Collins, Dean tells her they are rangers with the park services. When Haley asks for ID, Dean holds up a convincing fake ID with the name Samuel Cole. This could be a reference to Samuel Colt, the maker of the Colt and its original thirteen bullets.|
|Dean: Her brother's missing, Sam. She's not gonna just sit this out. No, we go with her, we protect her, and we keep our eyes peeled for our fuzzy Predator friend.|
This is a reference to Predator, a film staring Arnold Schwarzenegger that features extraterrestrial species characterized by its trophy hunting of other species, namely humans, for sport.
|Dean: Tell me, uh, Bambi or Yogi ever hunt you back?|
Bambi the Dear and Yogi Bear are both famous forest-dwelling cartoon characters.
|Ben: Like the Donner Party.|
The Donner Party were a group of 19th century settlers who were traveling west when they were caught in a blizzard in the Sierra Nevada, and some resorted to cannibalism.
|Sam: It's better than bread crumbs.|
A reference to the Grimm's fairy tale Hansel and Gretel, in which the children leave a trail of bread crumbs through the forest so they'll find their way home.
|The early scene of Sophie swimming in the lake is reminiscent of the opening scene of the 1975 film Jaws.|
|The same lake house and location in this episode was used in Jensen Ackles's movie Devour.|
|While there is no "Lake Manitoc" in Wisconsin there is a Lake Manitowoc, the city of Manitowoc, and Manitowoc county. This may have been the inspiration for the lake's name in this episode. "Manitowoc" comes from the Native American word "Mundeowk" meaning "home of the good spirit".|
|Dean: I'm Agent Ford, this is Agent Hamill. We're with the U.S. Wildlife Service.|
Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill are the actors who played Han Solo and Luke Skywalker in the original Star Wars trilogy. This is the first of many Star Wars references. On a side note, Kripke said that Dean and Sam are somewhat based upon Han and Luke.
|Jake: There are no indigenous carnivores in that lake. There's nothing-there's nothing even big enough to pull down a person, unless it was the Loch Ness Monster.|
The Loch Ness Monster (aka Nessie) is a cryptid lake monster reported to live in the waters of Loch Ness. It is believed to be a dinosaur that survived one of the Mass Extinction events.
|Sam: This whole lake monster theory, it - it just bugs me.|
Sam: Loch Ness, uh, Lake Champlain, there are literally hundreds of eyewitness accounts, but here, almost nothing.
Loch Ness and Lake Champlain are both homes to reported lake monsters, Nessie and Champ.
|Andrea: Tell your friend this whole 'Jerry Maguire' thing's not gonna work on me.|
Reference to the movie Jerry Maguire, in which Tom Cruise plays a man who spends a fair amount of time trying to charm a single mother's child in order to get close to the mother.
|Sam: Door number two sounds good.|
In the television show Let's Make a Deal, deals are offered to members of the audience by the host. The contestants usually have to weight the possibility of an offer "behind door number 2" being a more valuable prize than the one that they've already earned.
|The episode number, 1.04. is a possible allusion to the famed Eastern Air Lines Flight 401, which crashed in the seventies. Afterwards the airline did salvage parts. Then the passengers on planes that received parts started reporting seeing either the pilot or the co-pilot. It was said that they would help save those planes on occasion. Although the airline denied the planes were haunted they did eventually remove those salvaged parts and the haunting stopped. The incident was made into a book and a movie, both with the same name, The Ghost of Flight 401. In this case, the reverse is happening - a demon is inhabiting his originally intended victims and attempting to cause the planes to crash.|
|Dean: Did you get any sleep last night?|
Sam: Yeah, I grabbed a couple hours.
Dean: You liar. 'Cause I was up at three, and you were watching the George Foreman infomercial.
George Foremam is a famous heavyweight boxer who is now best known for late night ads where he advertises his electric grill.
|Sam: Yeah, he told me. It was a poltergeist?|
Man: Poltergeist? Man, I loved that movie.
Poltergeist is a 1982 horror flim directed by Tobe Hooper, about a family that moves into a house built on an Indian burial ground. It is said that the movie was cursed due to very strange events happening to actors on and off of the set.
|Dean: Man, I don't care how strong you are. Even yoked up on PCP or something, no way you can open up an emergency door during a flight.|
PCP or Phencyclidine, a recreational drug, can have effects of euphoria, loss of ego boundaries, aggressive behavior and can induce feelings of strength and power, as the drug causes pain receptors to the brain to be blocked. It is also referenced in several Buffy: The Vampire Slayer episodes. Gangs of vampires were blamed as gangs on PCP.
|Dean: Man, I look like one of the Blues Brothers.|
Sam: No, you don't. You look more like a... seventh-grader at his first dance.
The Blues Brothers were a comedic R&B duo comprised of John Belushi and Dan Akroyd that originated on the late night sketch show Saturday Night Live and later made two movies (one of which, was not well received). The pair's usual attire were black and white suits, ties, hats and sunglasses.
|Dean: This goes way beyond floating over a bed or barfing pea soup. I mean, it's one thing to possess a person, but to use them to take down an entire airplane?|
Reference to the films The Exorcist, in which a little girl is possessed by a demon. Among her afflictions are levitating objects and projectile vomiting. Like The Poltergeist, there are several legends that follow the Exorcist. Unlike the Poltergeist, the Exorcist has a very interesting set of trivia. Could also be a reference to Ghostbusters in which a woman is possessed and levitates over her bed.
|Dean: Miss Walker. Hi, this is Dr. James Hetfield from St. Francis Memorial Hospital.|
James Hetfield is the lead singer/rhythm guitarist of Metallica.
|Sam: You're humming Metallica?|
Metallica is an American heavy metal band formed in Los Angeles, California. Metallica was formed in 1981 when vocalist/guitarist James Hetfield responded to an advertisement posted by frummer Lars Ulrich in a local newspaper. The band's current line-up comprises founding members Hetfield and Ulrich, longtime lead guitarist Kirk Hammett and bassist Robert Trujillo. The band's fast tempos, instrumentals, and aggressive musicianship placed them as one of the founding "big four" bands of thrash metal, alongside Anthrax, Megadeath, and Slayer.
|The title of the episode, "Bloody Mary", refers to the urban legend of the same name.|
|A great deal of the aesthetic of the villain in this episode is taken from the Japanese horror film and American remake, The Ring.|
|Sam: Hey, night vision.|
Dean turns on the night vision for him.
Sam: Thanks. Perfect.
Dean: Do I look like Paris Hilton?
Reference to Paris Hilton's infamous sex video, which made the rounds on the internet. It's also perhaps a bit of meta, as Hilton and Jared Padalecki worked together in the film House of Wax. Ironically four years later Paris Hilton appeared in Fallen Idols.
|The song playing in the pre-title teaser, "In A Gadda Da Vida" may be an homage to the 1986 film Manhunter, in which the same song is background music to a very similar scene. Manhunter was the first film to feature the character Dr. Hannibal Lecter, a character Dean references on other occasions.|
|Sam: I don't know, it was like he was downloading your thoughts and memories.|
Dean: You mean, like the Vulcan mind meld?
In Star Trek the Vulcan mind meld is a procedure that involves physical contact with a subject (though instances of mind-melds without contact have been seen), making it possible to share thoughts, experience, memories, and knowledge with another individual.
|The title of the episode, "Hook Man", refers to the urban legend known as "The Hook" or "Hookman". The "Hook Man" legend in this episode is actually a combination of 3 urban legends: "The Hook Man", "The Dead Boyfriend", and "Aren't You Glad You Didn't Turn on the Lights."|
|The way that Lori's roommate Taylor was killed is a reference to another urban legend, "Aren't You Glad You Didn't Turn On The Light?"|
|Sam: Or it could be nothing at all. One freaked out witness who didn't see anything? Doesn't mean it's the Invisible Man.|
The Invisible Man is a science fiction novella by H.G. Wells, first published in 1897. The story tells the tale of a scientist named Griffin who learns the secret to invisibility. However, he fails to learn how to reverse the process.
|Dean: Nice job, Dr. Venkman.|

|Dean: Dude, sorority girls! Think we'll see a naked pillow fight?|
Reference to National Lampoon's Animal House where in a scene the character Bluto, played by John Belushi, gets to see some sorority girls in a naked pillow fight.
|Dean: Mad cow? Wasn't that on Oprah?|
Sam: You watch Oprah?
Reference to the "Mad Cow" issue: Oprah Winfrey's influence reaches far beyond pop-culture into unrelated industries where many believe she has the power to cause enormous market swings and radical price changes with a single comment. During a show about mad cow disease with Howard Lyman (aired April 16, 1996), Winfrey exclaimed, "It has just stopped me cold from eating another burger!" Texas cattlemen sued her and Lyman in early 1998 for "false defamation of perishable food" and "business disparagement," claiming the Winfrey's remarks subsequently sent cattle prices tumbling, costing beef producers some USD$12 million. On February 26, after a trial spanning over two months in an Amarillo, Texas, court in the thick of cattle country, a jury found Winfrey and Lyman were not liable for damages. After the trial, Winfrey received a postcard from Rosanne Barr reading, "Congratulations, you beat the meat!"
|Dean: Maybe they're being controlled somehow. You know, by something or someone.|
Sam: You mean, like Willard?
Dean: Yeah, bugs instead of rats.
Sam: He did try to scare the realtor with a tarantula.
Dean: You think he's our Willard?
Willard was a 1971 horror movie about a social misfit named Willard, who has a strange affinity/link with rats. He controls the rats to attack and kill people who have been cruel to him.
|Sam: There are cases of psychic connections between people and animals - elementals, telepaths.|
Dean: Yeah, that whole Timmy-Lassie thing.
This is a reference to the TV show Lassie (1954-1974). The show revolved around a collie named Lassie and her boy owner, Timmy, a farm boy who was frequently helped out of scrapes by his super-intelligent dog.
|Dean: Yeah, you were kind of like the blonde chick in The Munsters.|
The Munsters was a TV show back in the 1960s. The entire family was strange and odd, except for the one blonde niece named Marilyn Munster that would be considered "normal" by society. However, she was the odd one in that family, being entirely made up of monsters - a type of Frankenstein's monster, vampires, and ghouls. The family is vaguely ashamed of their relationship to such an "ugly" person, and even Marilyn is aware of her "plain-ness." She bemoans that she keeps scaring off potential boyfriends, having no idea that the youths are in fact frightened away by her family.
|Many of the final scenes in Bugs appear to have been inspired by the Alfred Hitchcock 1963 classic The Birds, such as the shots of the bugs swarming against the night sky, the bugs penetrating through the closed windows and doors, and the ripped back roof through which the Winchesters see the sky the following morning.|
|The scene where Dean fights the bugs off with an improvised flamethrower made from a combination of a can of some sort of pressurized accelerant and a lighter, is reminiscent of scenes in the 1990 film Arachnophobia wherein Jeff Daniels' character faces off against the "Queen spider" in his basement with a nail gun and an improvised flamethrower.|
|Dean: All right, just slow down, would ya? I mean, first you tell me that you've got the Shining? And then you tell me that I've gotta go back home? Especially when...|
The Shining (1980) is a feature film by Stanley Kubrick based on the novel of the same name by Stephen King. The film stars Jack Nicholson as tormented writer Jack Torrance. Jack's son, Danny, has creepy visions of impending evil. Another character referred to this "gift" as The Shining, hence the title.
|Jenny: That's Ritchie. He's kind of a juice junkie. But, hey, at least he won't get scurvy.|
Scurvy is a disease derived from vitamin C deficiency. It was a common affliction for sailors and pirates who were out at sea longer than fruits and vegetables could be stored.
|The cymbal-banging toy monkey is arguably an homage: There is a short story by Stephen King titled The Monkey, synopsis as follows:
"The story centers on a toy monkey that is apparently possessed by evil. The monkey is found by children, and their parents are, for some reason, freaked out. Periodically, the sinister monkey comes into motion, predicting the death of someone. In the end, the monkey is dumped in a lake in a bag full of heavy stones, thus stopping the deaths."
|Dean: Missouri did her whole Zelda Rubenstein thing. The house should be clean; this should be over.|
Zelda Rubenstein played psychic Tangina Barrons in the 1982 film Poltergeist and its sequels. There is a scene in the first film where she proclaims, "This house is clean!"
|Dean hacking away at the front door with an axe and then peering inside the hole is reminiscent of the scene from The Shining, albeit without Jack Nicholson's famous catchphrase.|
|Dean: I love the guy, but I swear, he writes like friggin' Yoda.|
Yoda is a character in the Star Wars universe. Yoda speaks in an unusual manner by placing verbs (and more frequently, auxiliary verbs) after the object and subject. In linguistic typology, this is the "Object Subject Verb" format, sometimes called "regression of syntax." Two typical examples of Yoda's speech pattern are from Return of the Jedi and Revenge of the Sith: "Not if anything to say about it, I have." or "When 900-years old you reach, look as good you will not."
|Dean: I'm, uh, Nigel Tufnel, with The Chicago Tribune.|
Nigel Tufnel is the (fictional) lead guitarist of the heavy metal/glam rock band Spinal Tap, who were the stars of the film This Is Spinal Tap, a 1984 mock documentary, directed by Rob Reiner. He was portrayed by actor Christopher Guest.
|Dean: Let me know if you see any dead people, Haley Joel.|
Haley Joel Osment starred in The Sixth Sense, in which he played 9-year-old Cole Sear. Cole has psychic abilities; he "sees dead people," and is rather emotionally scarred by this ability.
|Dean: Hey, Sam, who do you think is a hotter psychic: Patricia Arquette, Jennifer Love Hewitt, or you?|
Arquette plays psychic Allison Dubois in the TV series Medium; Hewitt plays psychic Melinda Gordon in the TV series Ghost Whisperer.
|Dean: Man, electroshock. Lobotomies. They did some twisted stuff to these people. Kinda like my man Jack in Cuckoo's Nest.|
Jack Nicholson played Randle McMurphy in the 1975 film One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest (based on the novel by Ken Kesey). McMurphy, a serial petty criminal who has been sentenced to a fairly short prison term, decides to have himself declared insane so he'll be transferred to a mental institution, where he expects to serve the rest of his time in (comparative) comfort and luxury. Of course, the institution is a very bad place, and very bad things happen (all completely "natural"), but I don't want to spoil anything.
|Dean: Spirits, uh, driving 'em insane. Kinda like my man Jack in The Shining.|
Reference to The Shining, a film in which Jack Nicholson plays a writer driven insane and homicidal by a haunted hotel.
|Sam: No, Dean, I mean it was weird that she didn't attack me.|
Dean: Looked pretty aggro from where I was standing.
"Aggro" is a common slang term originating in Britain and widely used in Australia, South Africa and New Zealand. It can be used to describe aggressive behavior, or a situation that is a source of irritation to the speaker (e.g. "These roadworks are causing more aggro than they're worth," he muttered.) Dean probably picked up this term from association with tourists while on the road, as the term is not widely used in the States.
Could also possibly be a reference to computer gaming: the term "aggro" is used as a measure of how much hate/aggression a computer-generated foe holds for a player. The more aggro something has for you, the more likely it is to attack you. Whether Dean would be familiar with gaming terms is questionable.
|Dean: Well all work and no play makes Dr. Ellicott a very dull boy.|
Another reference to The Shining. This is possibly Dean's favorite movie. This line refers to a scene in the movie where Jack Nicholson's character, Jack, has been supposedly writing for months. His wife has heard him, day after day, pounding away on his typewriter. Finally, when he is elsewhere, curiosity get the better of her. She walks to the typewriter, and sees the sheet in place. Written on it are endless repetitions of the single sentence "All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy." She looks through the stack of papers neatly placed to the side with increasing horror; the book Jack was working on consists of only the repetitions and permutations of layout of that same sentence. Over and over, through hundreds of pages.
|Dean: Yeah. They were rioting against Dr. Ellicott. Dr. Feelgood was working on some sort of, like, extreme rage therapy. He thought that if he could get his patients to vent their anger then they would be cured of it. Instead it only made them worse and worse and angrier and angrier. So I'm thinking, what if his spirit is doing the same thing? To the cop? To the kids in the seventies, making them so angry they become homicidal. Come on, we gotta find his bones and torch 'em.|
Reference to the Mötley Crüe album "Doctor Feelgood".
|The urban legend of this episode (immigrants bringing their old gods to worship in a new country) seems to be influenced by the plot of the Neil Gaiman sci-fi novel American Gods, in which the deities of ancient mythology (Odin, Loki, Thoth, etc) are remanifested and recruited to fight the New American Gods. Kripke has said he is an avid fan of Gaiman's work.|
|Vince: Check it out. If I only had a brain...|
A reference to the Scarecrow character from The Wizard of Oz book and film. All the main characters in Oz lack something they wish for the Wizard to give them; in Scarecrow's case, it is a brain. The line itself is from the famous 1939 movie musical, in which Scarecrow and the others sing "If I Only Had a Brain..."
|Dean: Yahtzee. Can you imagine putting together a pattern like this? All the different obits Dad had to go through? The man's a master.|
Yahtzee is a dice made by Milton Bradley. Saying "Yahtzee!" has come to mean something incredible coming together.
|Dean: Hi, my name's John Bonham.|
Scotty: Isn't that the drummer for Led Zeppelin?
|Stacey: Sweetheart, that's what sacrifice means. Giving up something you love, for the greater good. The town needs to be saved. The good of the many outweighs the good of the one.|
Possibly a reference to lines from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan:
Spock: Were I to invoke logic, however, logic clearly dictates that the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.
Kirk: Or the one.
|Dean: Let's just shag ass before Leatherface catches up.|
Leatherface is one of the family who wears a mask made of human skins and likes wielding a chainsaw in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, stars of the eponymous 1974 movie by Tobe Hooper (remade in 2003). The family's home is decorated with furniture and items made of human skin and bones. This interior design style is later referenced again in The Benders.
|Dean: You know, I was thinking. You heard of the Flying Dutchman?|
Sam: Yeah, a ghost ship, infused with the Captain's evil spirit. It was basically part of him.
Dean: So what if we're dealing with the same thing? You know, a phantom truck, an extension of some bastard's ghost, re-enacting past crimes.
The Flying Dutchman is a legendary ghost ship that can never make port and is doomed to sail the oceans forever. Sightings in the 19th and 20th centuries reported the ship to be glowing with ghostly light. If hailed by another ship, the crew of the Flying Dutchman will try to send messages to land, or to people long dead. In ocean lore, the sight of this phantom ship is a portent of doom.Wikipedia

|Mrs. McKay: Tell the officers what you were watching on TV.|
Evan: Um... Godzilla vs. Mothra.
Dean: Ah, man. That's my favorite Godzilla movie! So much better than the original, huh?
Dean nods towards Sam.
Dean: He likes the remake.
Godzilla first appeared in a self-titled 1954 Japanese film. Many films featured Godzilla - in the fourth film Godzilla vs. Mothra, Mothra was enlisted to fight him. The foes met again in the Millennium series (1999-2004) movie called Godzilla, Mothra and King Ghidorah: Giant Monsters All-Out Attack. The remake Dean refers to Sam liking is most probably the 1998 American remake Godzilla starring Matthew Broderick, which is mostly hated.
