Episode Quotes
Dick Roman: Which is why we’re diving whole hog into what keeps Americans living longer and tasting better.
Gloria Jane: You do mean of course to say the food will be tasting better.
Dick Roman: That’s exactly what I mean.

Dick Roman: Susan... are we still looking for a rep in mainstream media?
Susan: Yes, we are.
Dick: Wunderbar. Put a replace order on Gloria there.
Susan: And with the corpse?
Dick Roman: Call Chief Fieri. I feel like barbecue.

Dean: Okay, man, I have read this more times than the Playboy I found in Dad’s duffle.
Sam: Anna Nicole?
Dean: Anna Nicole. Ah, the good, they die young, huh?

Dean: “Roman acquires…" What’s SucroCorp?
Sam: They make food additives. Namely, high-fructose corn syrup. Well, that crap is in just about everything. Soda, sauces, bread...
Dean: Don’t say pie.
Sam: Definitely pie.
Dean: Bastards.

Vampire: Go to hell.

Sam: Monks get up at 4 a.m. to pray.

Alpha Vampire: We come from you.
Edgar: Barely.
Alpha Vampire: I am the son of Eve.
Edgar: A pathetic mutt. Hardly one of us. I knew Eve, and honestly, your mommy was a whore.
