    • Sam: Kid's like Rain Man.
      Dean: He's like a crappy little credit-card-counting criminal prodigy Rain Man.
      Sam: Well, he was in Advanced Placement.
      Dean: Shut up.

    • Castiel: It does present a curious curl in the metaphysics, doesn't it? If you murder a monster in monster heaven, where does it go?
      Benny: And this is the crazy aunt I want to take on the road?
      Castiel: I am not your aunt.
      Benny: What? Really?
      Castiel: I have no possible relationship to your sibling offspring.
      Benny: Now you're kidding me.
      Dean: Oh, you two are killing me.

    • Dean: Vampire pirates? That's what you guys are. Vampirates.

    • Dean: What the hell do you know about the value of life? You're a vampire.
      Benny: Yep. And I think we both know which of our kinds killed more humans.
      Castiel: Well, statistically speaking, that'd be your...
      Dean: Yes, thank you, Cass.

    • Sam: So, you think I'm creepy?
      Amelia: I think it's creepy that you buy all of your clothing at army surplus. White supremacists do that.
      Sam: Yeah, but I'm not.
      Amelia: Drifting serial killers do that.
      Sam: Fair enough.

    • Sam: Kid's like Rain Man.
      Referencing the 1988 movie starring Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman, with Tom Cruise as Charlie Babbit discovering the brother he never had, savant Raymond (Rain Man).

    • Sam: You are a wascally wabbit, Mr. Tran.
      Referencing Bugs Bunny and Elmer Fudd, as soon in various animated shorts, movies, and TV series sch as The Bugs Bunny Show, which features cartoon animals in an animated world. Elmer Fudd and Bugs Bunny were two of them. Elmer was always hunting down Bugs Bunny, who was a rabbit. He was never able to say the 'R' in a word, so whenever he talked to Bugs Bunny or about Bugs Bunny, instead of saying rascally rabbit, he would say "wascally wabbit."

      I liked the episode a lot...i've no idea where this season is headed but i'm way more interested to find out than last season. It's about relationships again not just how to kill the bad thing :)

      I also rather dislike the fact that you can thumb up/down some comments, that's kind of off putting when it comes to actually discussing and episode etc as opposed to writing a review or something. Sorry for ranting but this is annoying.

    • Gislef Nov 01, 2012

      You can't thumbs down comments, only thumbs up. Reviews, you can go up and down.

    • PenguinSuzie Nov 01, 2012

      Wasn't sure if pressing enter would create another space or send it. It sends it. I must be honest this being the way to discus episodes as opposed to a discussion thread is quite annoying. You can't even edit what you've written and I'm not sure if the comments are tops to bottom or bottom to stop like comments often are on this site. I hope double posting on this is allowed since there's really no other way. Unless I'm missing something, please let me know if I am.

      You can cut and paste a hard return in from something like Notebook if you want extra lines.

    • PenguinSuzie Nov 01, 2012

      This episode made me like Benny a lot more. Not that I disliked him before but now I really do like him.

    • mattgus Nov 01, 2012

      sam sure knows how to go on and on like mother hubbard or something. he knows dean is in a nest and he is going on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on...well you get the

    • TrueTvWatcher Nov 03, 2012

      hahaha I agree, he should definitely know better!

    • badboys Nov 01, 2012

      I actually didn't find it very believable that he would do that. he's a veteran hunter, he wouldn't endanger Dean's life by nagging at him really loud while Dean is trying to sneak around a vampires nest.
