Episode Quotes
Sam: Hold up. Are you the new Bobby?
Dean: You shut your mouth.
Garth Fitzgerald IV: Yeah.
Dean: You shut your mouth. What?!?

Dean: I was in Purgatory.
Garth Fitzgerald IV: Like the Purgatory Purgatory?
Dean: No, the one in Miami.
Garth Fitzgerald IV: Man, that's balls
Dean: That's not how you say "balls."

Dean: What, you--you were a dentist?
Garth Fitzgerald IV: Yeah, just for, like, for a hot minute. Where'd you think I got my first case?
Dean: Let me guess--Tooth Fairy.
Garth Fitzgerald IV: Yeah. Man, I felt terrible when I ganked that SOB.
Sam: Uh, you killed the Toothy Fairy?
Garth Fitzgerald IV: Yeah, man. I mean, not my proudest moment, but it happened.

Dean: So first the mom goes Natural Born Killer, and now the son? Well, what do we got--a ghost with an Oedipus complex? (Sam stares) I don't know what that means.

Cultural References
Dean: Hey, Chuck Norris.

Walker, Texas Ranger was a long-running CBS series about a modern-day Texas Ranger, Cordell Walker (Chuck Norris).

Garth: Even if there was any sulfur, Barney Fife and his crew probably contaminated the whole crime scene and any evidence that was here with it.

Barney Fife is the bumbling small-town deputy played by Don Knotts in The Andy Griffith Show.

Dean: So first the mom goes Natural Born Killer, and now the son?

Mickey and Mallory are a homicidal couple in the 1994 movie Natural Born Killers.

Dean: Yeah, but not before Casper had a chance to make a run for it.

Casper is a friendly cartoon child-ghost who started in the comic books and has starred in several TV series and movies.
