In San Francisco, Madison is drinking at a bar with her friends when her boss, Nate Mulligan, comes over and says she needs to come back to the office to do some work. She quickly realizes that he's trying to pick her up. He then tries to get her to drive him home, and she tells him that she's already called him a cab. As he stumbles off, Madison assures her friends that it happens a lot. As she turns to watch Nate go, she spots a man watching her from a nearby table. When she turns back a moment later, he's gone. Madison leaves for the night and jumps when she hears a dog digging through some garbage cans. She gets into her car and drives away, and the man from the bar watches her go...

Episode Quotes
Sam: Month after month all the murders happen in the week leading up to the full moon.
Dean: Which is this week, right?
Sam: Hence the lawyer.
Dean: Awesome.
Sam: Dean, could you be a bigger geek about this?
Dean: I'm sorry, man, but what about a human by day, a freak animal killing machine by moonlight don't you understand? I mean, werewolves are badass. We haven’t seen one since we were kids.
Sam: Okay, sparky, and you know what, after we kill it we can go to Disneyland.

Madison: He had a few scotches in him and he started hitting on anyone within a five-mile radius. You know the type.
(Sam looks over to Dean)
Sam: Yeah, I do, actually.

Sam: Anything?
Dean: (checking the refrigerator) Nothing but leftovers and a six pack.
Sam: Check the freezer. Maybe there's some human hearts hidden behind the Häagen-Dazs or something.

Dean: One of us should probably stay here with you just in case he stops by.
(Madison leaves)
Sam: All right, you go, I'll stay.
Dean: Forget that. You go after the creepy ex, I'm gonna hang here with the hot chick.
Sam: Dude. Why do you always get to hang out with the girls?
Dean: Because I'm older.
Sam: No, screw that. We settle this the old-fashioned way. (Sam and Dean play a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors; Sam choses rock, Dean choses scissors) Dean, always with the scissors.
Dean: Shut up, shut up. Two out of three!
(they play again; Dean chooses scissors, Sam chooses rock)
Dean: Gah!
Sam: Bundle up out there, all right? (leads Dean out of the room)

Dean: Let me guess. You're sitting on her couch like a stiff trying to think of something to say.

(after watching a soap opera)
Sam: Wait, so, so Kendall married Ethan's father just to get back at him?
Madison: Yup, and now she's set to inherit all the casinos that were supposed to go to Ethan.
Sam: What a bitch!

Sam: Can I ask you a question? I, it's, it's a little personal.
Madison: You've seen my entire underwear collection. Go ahead.

Sam: What were you doing with Kurt?
Madison: I don’t know. I mean, it’s not like he introduced himself like, “Hi, I’m possessive and controlling and I like to punch people, wanna be my girlfriend?”

Sam: You're unusual.
Madison: Unusual like... (makes crazy sign) unusual?
Sam: No. No no no. Unusual like... impressive.
Madison: You think so?

Sam: (on the phone) Hey.
Dean: I found him.
Sam: Good, don't keep your eyes off him.
Dean: (ogling a stripper) Oh, my eyes are glued. Look, Sammy, I gotta let 'cha go I, uh... I don't wanna miss anything.

Sam: Maybe she doesn't really know she's changing. You know maybe, maybe when the creature takes over she blacks out.
Dean: Like a really hot Incredible Hulk?

Madison: You know, for a stakeout, your car's a bit conspicuous.

Dean: So I'm just gonna... head back to the hotel... watch some pay-per-view... or somethin'. (leaves)
Madison: That was smooth.
Sam: He means well.
Madison: You mean, he thinks you're gonna get laid. [

Dean: Sammy, I don't think we got a choice here any more.
Sam: What?
Dean: I hate to say it, she's a sweet girl, but part of her is...
Sam: Evil?
Dean: Yeah.
Sam: Yeah, that's what they say about me, Dean. So me you won't kill, but her you're just gonna blow away.

Madison: Sam, I'm a monster.
Sam: No, I'm gonna save you.
Madison: You tried. I know you tried.
