Episode Quotes
Dean: (falling out of bed) Bobby, you're alive!
Bobby Singer: Of course I am. Why are you on the floor?
Dean: They gave me morphine. A lot. Hey, look. A monster broke my leg.

Dean: And, uh Sam...?
Sam: (going for food) Yeah?
Dean: Pie.
Sam: Obviously.

Chet: The Winchesters have trigged one of my search programs.
Edgar: Great.
Chet: A shop in Montana. A day and a half, maybe two days from here.
Edgar: So?
Chet: So...?
Edgar: So why are you still talking to me?

Dean: Where's the pie?
Sam: You get cake. It's close enough, right?

Dean: Other shoe.
Bobby Singer: Other who?
Dean: Sam. He took off.
Bobby Singer: Where?
Dean: I don't know. Nowhere good.
Bobby Singer: Maybe he needed a little me time.
Dean: Yeah, but his me time ain't just him. For all we know, he's road-tripping with Lucifer somewhere.

Young Amy: So you going to tell me?
Young Sam: What?
Young Amy: How you kicked the crap out of those guys? I mean... no offense, but you're kind of...
Young Sam: Wiry.
Young Amy: Exactly.

Young Sam: We're always on the road. I mean, I've seen the world's biggest ball of twine twice.
Young Amy: Three times. Not that big.
Young Sam: Right.

Young Sam: You're always the new kid, and everyone thinks you're a freak.
Young Amy: Sam, you are a freak. But so is, I don't know, Jimi Hendrix, and Picasso. So am I. All the coolest people are freaks.

Amy: I'm a mortician. I know, not sexy. But... you know, health benefits.

Sam: Dean, look, how many times do I have to tell you? I'm fine.
Dean: Oh, yeah, now, you're a poster boy for mental health.

Dean: I'm sorry but it's that simple.
Sam: Nothing in our lives is simple.

Chet: You know what I find? Plain old people taste fine, but everything is better with cheese.
