Episode Quotes
Sam: Wait. So Crowley is... alive?
Dean: Oh, yeah. He's the junk in my trunk.
Sam: Huh.

Crowley: Torture. Brilliant. Can't wait to see Sam in stilettos and a leather bustier. Really putting the S-A-M into S&M.

Dean: He will break, okay? When he does, we'll hold him down while you knife him. Then we all go out for ice cream and strippers.

Abaddon: So maybe you can tell me what the hell happened to Hell? And demons. I mean, you call that a meat suit?
Grandma Demon: I closed 72 deals last year. Kids love grandma.

Dean: What, so this whole place is poison?
Sam: Yeah. (Dean covers his crotch) That's not going to help.
Dean: Doesn't hurt.

Crowley: What's on your mind, Kevin? You can tell me. We're friends.
Kevin: You tortured me.
Crowley: I torture all my friends. It's how I show love.

Abaddon: I so appreciate you boys coming when I call. That's what I like most about you Winchesters. Obedient... and suicidally stupid. I like that, too.
Dean: We going to fight or make out, 'cause I'm getting some real mixed signals here.

Sam: You killed three demons, alone?
Dean: I took 'em by surprise. I got a little messy, I got a little lucky. Oh, and, uh, I'm awesome, so there's that.
