During a fight with a hobgoblin, Dean is electrocuted, causing deadly damage to his heart. Sam tries to find a way to save Dean, and comes across a preacher who claims he can cure the incurable. But the brothers soon discover that the preacher's miracles are happening due to help from the Grim Reaper, who trades one life for another, "less worthy" life.
Sam and Dean are hunting a Rawhead in an abandoned building and find the two children that it has abducted. As they get the children out of the basement, the creature grabs Sam as he goes up the stairs. Dean fires a taser at it and tells Sam to get the children out, while he goes in after the monster. It knocks him down into a puddle of water on the floor and comes after him, and Dean fires the taser again. It shocks the creature, which is standing in the puddle, but electrocutes Dean as well. Sam returns and finds his brother, dying...Read the full recap
Dean: Have you ever watched daytime TV? It's terrible.
Sam: I talked to your doctor.
Dean: That fabric softener teddy bear. Oooh! I'm gonna hunt that little bitch down.
Dean: Yeah, all right, well, it looks like you're going to leave town without me.
Sam: What are you talking about? I'm not going to leave you here.
Dean: Hey, you better take care of that car, or I swear I'll haunt your ass.
Sam: I don't think that's funny.
Dean: Ah, come on. It's a little funny. Look, Sammy, what can I say, man? It's a dangerous gig. I drew the short straw. That's it. end of story.
Sam: Don't talk like that, all right? We still have options.
Dean: What options? You got burial or cremation. I know it's not easy, but I'm gonna die and you can't stop it.
Sam: Watch me.
Dean: I'm not gonna die in a hospital where the nurses aren't even hot.
Sam: You know this whole "I laugh in the face of death" thing is crap, I can see right through it.
Dean: Yeah, whatever. Have you even slept? You look worse than me.
Dean: You're not gonna let me die in peace, are you?
Sam: I'm not gonna let you die, period.
Dean: (arriving at a faith healer) Man, you're a lying bastard. I thought you said we were going to see a doctor.
Sam: I believe I said a specialist.
David Wright: Roy Le Grange is a fraud. He's no healer.
Dean: Amen, brother.
Sam: You keep up the good work.
Dean: And God save us from half the people who think they're doing God's work.
Dean: It must be rough, to believe in something so much and have it disappoint you like that.
Layla Rourke: You wanna hear something weird? I'm okay, really. I guess if you're going to have faith you can't just have it when the miracles happen. You have to have it when they don't.
Dean: So what now?
Dean: Hey, um, you know, I'm not much of a praying type. But I'm gonna pray for you.
Layla Rourke: Well, there's a miracle right there.
