  • This episode is so awesome, its rating should be in the high 9s. The reviews show how much people loved it; they're almost all rated 10.

    • Dean: So (Castiel's) gone.
      Bobby: Yep. Rest in peace. If that's in the cards.
      Dean: Dumb son of a bitch.
      Bobby: Well he was friends with us, wasn't he? Can't get much dumber than that.

    • Dean: Wait, I got it. Why did the Devil holodeck you a whole new life when he can just kick your ass all over the cage?
      Sam: 'Cause, as he puts it...
      Sam and Lucifer: You can't torture someone who has nothing left for you to take away.
      Lucifer: Very good, Sam.
      Dean: Okay, fine. But this Malibu Dream Manson that he--he--he makes for you to take away is this post-apocalyptic mess?
      Lucifer: It had to be a mess, Sam. Or you wouldn't believe it was your life.

    • Bobby: Of course, lost one of the best friends you ever had. Your brother's in the bell jar. And Purgatory's Most Wanted are surfing the sewer line. But yeah, yeah, I get it, right. You're--you're fine.
      Dean: Good.
      Bobby: Of course, if at any time you want to decide that's utter horse crap, well, I'll be where I always am. Right here.
      Dean: Well, you want to do couples' yoga or you want to get back to hunting the big bads?
      Bobby: Shut up. Idjit.

    • Edgar: You got yourself an awfully small body.
      Annie: Too small. She didn't know anything. Can't even see over the counter.
      Edgar: This one, Edgar, Edgar worked on something called a demolition crew. Watching things blow up is apparently very satisfying.
      Annie: Annie knows where baby comes from. Disgusting, by the way.

    • Sam: Okay, if this is some dream and you got power over it, why don't you just end it?
      Lucifer: End it? This? You not knowing what's real, the paint slowly peeling off your walls. Come on, man, this is the sweet spot. Why would I end it? Not like we got HBO in the Pit.

The monster is occasionally seen as a mammoth egg, which hatches into a giant web-shooting larva, and eventually matures into the familiar moth-like form. Originally she could generate gale-force winds and lift other monsters into the air. Later in the 90s, she was given additional powers to fire energy beams from her antenna and generate electricity.

    • Dean: Why did the Devil holodeck you a whole new life...?
      Referencing the holodeck from Star Trek The Next Generation, Star Trek Voyager and Star Trek Deep Space Nine. The holodeck is a hologrammatically-generated virtual world that is created and programmed by computer and is nearly indistinguishable from reality.
