Episode Quotes
Dean: Seriously, Frank, Pay phones? Come on, I'm getting the clap off this thing just touching it.

Sam: So, we got dick on Dick?
Dean: That's a vivid way of putting it.

Dean: Bite look a little vampy to you?

Dean: So what are we looking for? Octo-Vamp? Vamptopus?
Sam: That's crazy, even for us, right?
Dean: Does push the envelope.

Sam: How's business?
Jean Holliday: It turns out not even Grim flippin' Death can slow down the birthday fun.

Sam: Go ahead, say it.
Dean: I'm sorry. You--you look like you got attacked by some PCP-crazed strippers.
