Episode Quotes
Dean: Like I told you before, this isn't going to end. Look, man, other guys, they got it easy, you know? It's all backyard barbecues and... bowling teams. But you and me? We got to carry a little extra weight.
Kevin Tran: I can't take it.
Dean: Yes, you can. Hey, look at me. Now, this whole thing sucks. I know. But you suck it up and you push through because that's what we do. And when you get on board with that, the ride is a lot smoother. French fry?

Crowley: As you may recall, patience isn't one of my virtues. Well, I don't have any virtues, but if I did, I'm certain that patience wouldn't be one.

Dean: So, uh... Bobby--how... how'd he hold up down there?
Sam: He's good, all things considered. Ornery as hell, of course.
Dean: As he should be.

Crowley: What you people never seem to understand is that you are nothing! Fleeting blips of light. I am forever.
