Episode Quotes
Dean: Frank, I’m not a Leviathan.
Frank Deveraux: Oh, sure. You’re not a Leviathan. Dick Roman is not a Leviathan. Gwyneth Paltrow is not a Leviathan.
Dean: Yeah?
Frank Deveraux: Trust me

Coroner: Matthew Havlena. Found in a ditch off the interstate.
Sam: Cause of death?
Coroner: Missing five pints of blood kinda helped. Puncture wounds, femoral artery, and carotid.
Sam: So, what, some kind of animal attack?
Coroner: Or vampire. (Sam stares) Huh. That usually gets at least a chuckle.

Dean: Who is she?
Frank Deveraux: Amanda Willer. Surprise, surprise. Works for Richard Roman.
Dean: What's she doing?
Frank Deveraux: Being a naughty, bossy little girl.
Dean: I'd hate to ask for that in a non-porno version.

Dean: I'm not going to quit. That's not even an option. I'm not going to walk out on my brother.
Frank Deveraux: Okay then, fine. Do what I did.
Dean: What, go native? Stock up on c-rations?
Frank Deveraux: No, cupcake. What I did when I was 26 and came home to find my wife and two kids gutted on the floor. Decided to be fine till the end of the week. Make yourself smile because you're alive and that's your job, then do it again the next week.
Dean: So fake it?
Frank Deveraux: I call it being professional. Do it right, with a smile, or don't do it.
