Episode Quotes
Sam: Heaven?
Dean: Yeah.
Sam: Okay, how are we in Heaven?
Dean: All that clean living, I guess.

Sam: Dad said they always had the perfect marriage.
Dean: It wasn't perfect until after she died.

Zachariah: Wow. Running from angels... on foot... in Heaven. With out-of-the-box thinking like that, I'm surprised you boys haven't stopped the Apocalypse already.

Ash: See, you got to stop thinking of Heaven as one place. It's more like a buttload of places. All crammed together. Like Disneyland. Except without all the anti-Semitism.

Mary: The worst was the smell. The pain, well... what can you say about your skin bubbling off? But the smell was so... You know, for a second, I thought I left a pot roast burning in the oven. But.. it was my meat. And then, finally, I was dead.
