Crowley: Oh, Cass, such a flirt.

Crowley: The Three Amigos ride again.

Dean: So you're sayin' we're both a couple of dumb-asses?

Dean: What's taking so long?
Crowley: Other than the fact that I'm trying to unravel a living, multidimensional knot of pure energy, not much.

Dean: A demon and an angel walk into my brother. Sounds like a bad joke.

Dean: This don't make us square. I see you again...
Crowley: I'm dead. yes, I know. I love you, too.

Crowley: See, the demons have a choice--take orders from the world's angriest ginger--and that's saying something--or join my team where everyone gets a say, a virgin, and all the entrails they can eat.
