In Eagle Harbor, Washington, a man, Quentin, walks down an alleyway. Benny approaches him and Quentin is surprised to realize that he's alive. The vampire reminds Quentin that he held down his legs while the old man ordered his people to saw off Benny's head. Benny demands to know where the old man is and when Quentin refuses, Benny takes out a large knife. Two of Quentin's fellow vampires come out and Quentin says that the Old Man is going to want to see Benny for himself. Benny tells him if they kill him then he knows who he'll see when he goes where he's going. He then decapitates Quentin and turns to the other two vampires...

Episode Quotes
Sam: Kid's like Rain Man.
Dean: He's like a crappy little credit-card-counting criminal prodigy Rain Man.
Sam: Well, he was in Advanced Placement.
Dean: Shut up.

Castiel: It does present a curious curl in the metaphysics, doesn't it? If you murder a monster in monster heaven, where does it go?
Benny: And this is the crazy aunt I want to take on the road?
Castiel: I am not your aunt.
Benny: What? Really?
Castiel: I have no possible relationship to your sibling offspring.
Benny: Now you're kidding me.
Dean: Oh, you two are killing me.

Dean: Vampire pirates? That's what you guys are. Vampirates.

Dean: What the hell do you know about the value of life? You're a vampire.
Benny: Yep. And I think we both know which of our kinds killed more humans.
Castiel: Well, statistically speaking, that'd be your...
Dean: Yes, thank you, Cass.

Sam: So, you think I'm creepy?
Amelia Richardson: I think it's creepy that you buy all of your clothing at army surplus. White supremacists do that.
Sam: Yeah, but I'm not.
Amelia Richardson: Drifting serial killers do that.
Sam: Fair enough.

The Maker: You're right. I've been here so, so long, Benny, seen all the outcomes, all the patterns a trillion times. It all means so little. This universe is a pyramid of despair, nothing else.
Benny: A little dark.
The Maker: I am evil, after all. At least I've had that much to keep me cold at night.

Cultural References
Sam: Kid's like Rain Man.

Rain Man is a 1988 movie with Tom Cruise as a car dealer and con man who discovers he has a brother, Dustin Hoffman, who is a savant.

Sam: You are a wascally wabbit, Mr. Tran.

"Wascally wabbit" is how the perpetually lisping Elmer Fudd refers to Bugs Bunny, a "rascally rabbit."
