Honor sets some leftover food down to next to him and goes on, unaware at first that someone is watching her from the bushes. The woman finally hears someone moving and glances over, and nervously continues to her SUV. Honor trips and drops her keys beneath her car, and crawls underneath to get them.

Episode Quotes
Sam: Okay, so we have missing church folk and superstrength. Maybe angels harvesting vessels, could be a Buddy Boyle-type thing.
Sheriff Jody Mills: Wait... angels? You're joking.
Dean: Don't get your pants on fire. They suck.

Sheriff Jody Mills: Barb Blanton, our missing bride-to-be...
Sam: Yeah?
Sheriff Jody Mills: Mom said she heard Barb and her fiancé in Barb's bedroom.
Sam: Going at it.
Sheriff Jody Mills: Well, she said she heard sex noises, then Barb crying, then Neil telling Barb it didn't count because it was under 30 seconds.

Sam: So dragons are off the list.
Sheriff Jody Mills: Is there dragons? Those are a thing?
Sam: Yeah. Too many things are things.

Suzy Lee: You're not like... the other guys in town, are you? You're kind of a... bad boy.
Dean: I don't know. Why don't you ask me that in Spanish?
Suzy Lee: ¿Eres un chico malo?
Dean: Si.
