Episode Quotes
Dean: Well, lucky for you, I'm a doctor. I've got joe, grub, and... (holds up pills)
Sam: What are they?
Dean: Effective.

Sam: Dean, I might have done... God knows what. And you want me to just forget about it?
Dean: You shove it down, and you let it come out in spurts of violence and alcoholism.
Sam: That sounds healthy.
Dean: Well, it works for me.

Sam: Great. Where to?
Dean: Paterson, New Jersey. Hey, maybe we'll have a Snooki sighting.
Sam: What's a "snooki"?
Dean: That's a good question.

Dean: So what'd you find out from the mop jockey's girlfriend?
Sam: Nothing. Just how great he was. Went to church. Donated to charity. Rubbed her feet during Glee.
Dean: I just threw up in my mouth.
Sam: Sorry.

Sam: Wait. That anatomy dummy you were molesting at the lab.
Dean: Excuse me?
Sam: What if that's what this is about?
Dean: What exactly are you accusing me of?

Dean: Look, one day--you'll get this when you're older.
Ben Braeden: Don't talk to me like I'm 6.
Dean: Okay, fine. It's like this, then. Just 'cause you love someone doesn't mean you should stick around and screw up their life. So I can't be here.
Ben Braeden: You think something will follow you home?
Dean: No. No, I don't. But I think my job turns me into someone who can't sit at your dinner table. And if I stayed, you'd end up just like me.
Ben Braeden: Why do you say it like you're so... bad?
Dean: Trust me, I'm not someone you want to aim to be.

Dean: I'm sorry, Ben, but this way you got a shot at living whatever life you want. You know, pick one, pick five. Because with me, there's just the one road.
Ben Braeden: You're a liar, Dean.
Dean: Excuse me?
Ben Braeden: You say family's so important, but, but what do you call people who care for you, who love you even when you're a dick? You know, you're walking out on your family, right?

Dean: So is that the girl with the haunted kidney?
Sam: Yeah.
Dean: Huh, just when you think you've seen it all.
