      Dean: You shut your mouth. What?!?

    • Dean: I was in Purgatory.
      Garth: Like the Purgatory Purgatory?

    • Dean: What, you--you were a dentist?
      Garth: Yeah, just for, like, for a hot minute. Where'd you think I got my first case?

      Garth: Yeah. Man, I felt terrible when I ganked that SOB.
      Sam: Uh, you killed the Toothy Fairy?
      Garth: Yeah, man. I mean, not my proudest moment, but it happened.

    • Dean: So first the mom goes Natural Born Killer, and now the son? Well, what do we got--a ghost with an Oedipus complex? (Sam stares) I don't know what that means.

    • Dean: Hey, Chuck Norris.
      Along with Garth posing as a Texas Ranger, referencing Walker, Texas Ranger, a popular CBS TV series that ran nine seasons on CBS. Chuck Norris plays Cordell Walker, a high-kicking martial arts expert and modern-day Texas Ranger.

    • Garth: Even if there was any sulfur, Barney Fife and his crew probably contaminated the whole crime scene and any evidence that was here with it.
      Referencing the bumbling but good-hearted deputy played by Don Knotts on The Andy Griffith Show from 1960-1968.

    • Dean: So first the mom goes Natural Born Killer, and now the son?
      Referencing the 1994 movie Natural Born Killers. Mickey and Mallory Knox are a loving couple who go on a killing spree and gain a cult following when their exploits are broadcast by a ratings-hungry journalist.

    • Dean: Yeah, but not before Casper had a chance to make a run for it.
      Referencing the child-ghost created by Joe Oriolo and Seymour Reit in the early 40s. He appeared in early animated films and then was sold to Harvey Comics where he has enjoyed a long career. He has had several TV shows and live-action movies.

      If I could give "Southern Comfort" an 11, I would. First of all, D.J.Qualls is a magnificent addition to Supernatural- he's funny, cute and helpful in a dorkier-than-Sam way. The explanation at the end as to why he didn't get possessed was perfect- couldn't have done it better. Sam and Dean got their little words out but they are at an impasse on how to procede- they'll figure it out but we'll see what happens next. I HOPE that Benny ends up having to save Sammy's life and he understands that Dean is BETTER for having him in his life but maybe that's just wishful thinking.

      Will Benny drive a wedge between the Winchester brothers?

    • HeidiHameed Nov 08, 2012

      Initially, yes- it already has but I have a feeling, if they do it right, that Sammy will come to see why Dean would ever attach emotion to something he'd normally gank. We shall see.
