Supernatural: I Believe the Children Are Our Future

Urban legends and children's imaginings become real in a small town, and Sam and Dean track the source to an 11-year-old boy who can alter reality with a thought. Castiel arrives to warn them that the child, half-human and half-demon, is too dangerous to live.

Recap

In Alliance, Nebraska, Amber Greer is babysitting the neighbor boy Jimmy. She hears a noise and goes to the closet and finds him with a bloody fake pencil in his head. She sends him to bed and goes back to watching TV and brushing her hair. She hears a dog barking outside and looks outside, but doesn't see anything...

Episode Quotes
(Dean shows Sam his hairy palm)
Sam: Oh, d-dude... that's not what I think it is, is it?
Dean: I got bored. That nurse was hot.
Sam: You know you can go blind from that, too.

Sam: What's that?
Jesse Turner: It's called soup. You heat it up and you eat it.

Jesse Turner: What, didn't your dad tell you about the Tooth Fairy?
Dean: My dad? My dad told me different stories.

Castiel: Other cultures call this hybrid Cambion or Katako. You now him as the Antichrist. (sits down on a whoopee cushion) That wasn't me.
Dean: Who put that there?

Sam: So we tell him the truth.You say Jesse's destined to go dark side--fine. But he hasn't yet. So if we lay it all out for him... what he is, the Apocalypse, everything--he might make the right choice.
Castiel: You didn't. And I can't take that chance.



Cultural References
Dean: That'll do, pig

This reference is to a film about a pig called Babe in which the pig acts like a sheep dog.
