Episode Quotes
Dean: Wow, You know, of all the lame-ass things you've ever said, that has got to be the lame-assiest.
Sam: I'm sorry, but I happen to think Shemp was a funnier Stooge than Curly.
Dean: Curly was a freaking genius!
Sam: I always found Curly's work a bit obvious.
Dean: It's supposed to be obvious, man. They're Stooges.

Portia: Tonight, James and I were close, without psychological walls--intimate.
Dean: I don't...
Sam: They had sex.
Dean: Wow. I, uh, didn't expect that.

James Frampton: Dean, a witch can go to a place without having to go to a place.
Dean: What, like phone sex?
James Frampton: Astral projection.
