At Truman High School in Fairfax, Indiana, the jocks and cheerleaders are in the cafeteria discussing Taylor, who’s rumored to have been sleeping around. They refuse to let her sit with them and start chanting “slut.” She goes to another table and sits to a fat girl, April. April says she feels sorry for Taylor, who insults her. April runs off in tears. The next day, Taylor is in the bathroom when April comes up behind her. She tells Taylor she isn’t fat and then slams the girl’s head into the mirror. She then drags the girl over to the toilet and drowns her, as black ooze drips from her eye...

Episode Quotes
Dean: So what's our cover? FBI, Homeland Security, Swedish exchange students?

Dean: Today you will have the honor of playing one of the greatest games ever invented. A game of skill, agility, cunning. A game with one simple rule. Dodge. (hits kid with ball) Sorry.

Sam: Having fun?
Dean: The whistle makes me their god.
Sam: Right. Nice shorts.

Dean: I had to break into the principal's office to get this. Oh, and FYI, three of the cheerleaders are legal. Guess which ones.
Sam: No.

Mr. Wyatt: You know this assignment was non-fiction, right?
Young Sam: Yes, Mr. Wyatt.
Mr. Wyatt: So you and your family killed a werewolf last summer, huh?

Dean: That ghost is dead. I'm gonna to rip its lungs out! Well, you know what I mean.

Dean: Ghost getting creative--well, that's super.

Dean: Well, we'd really like to pay our respects, Mr. McGregor. Umm, you mind telling us where Dirk is buried?
Dirk McGregor Sr.: Oh, he wasn't. I had him cremated.
Dean: All of him?
Dirk McGregor Sr.: Well, I kept a lock of his hair.
Dean: Oh, that's... that's nice. Where do you keep that?

Dean: All right, everybody stay where you are. You'll be okay.
Coach: Aren't you the P.E. teacher?
Dean: Not really. I'm like 21 Jump Street. The bus driver sells pot. Yeah.

(a boy passes out on top of Sam)
Sam: Little help.
Dean: He's giving you the full cowgirl.

Cultural References
Dean: Whatever, go have your Robin Williams "O Captain, My Captain" moment, just make it quick,

This is a reference to a scene in the film Dead Poets Society, starring Robin Williams as a teacher at a conservative private school, who is admired by his students for his unconventional teaching methods. In the beginning of the movie, Robin Williams jokingly tells the students that they may refer to him as "O Captain, My Captain" if they feel daring. This is in turn a reference to a poem of the same title by Walt Whitman.
