    • Sam: I can't believe I'm about to say this, but I hope you're watching cartoon smut. Because reading Dick Roman crap over and over again is just... self-punishment.
      Dean: It's called anime, and it's an art form.

    • Sam: Well, there's a semi-functional bathroom and one un-rancid bedroom.
      Dean: Describe "semi-functional," and do not use the words "hole in the floor."

    • Sam: You going to look at more anime, or are you strictly into Dick now?

    • Ness: Ezra Moore, Dean Winchester.
      Dean: Hey.
      Ezra: Who's he, some farmer clown?
      Ness: He's, uh, from the future.
      Dean: Yeah. Gas costs four bucks, you get cheese out of a spray can. The President is a black man. I could go on.
      Ezra: Paint me impressed.

    • Dean: Awesome.
      Ezra: "Awesome"? Is he some religious kook?
      Ness: No, he just likes saying that.

    Allusions (4)

    • Dean: I'm 12 Monkeys no matter what I say, so here goes.
      Referencing the 1995 movie directed by Terry Gilliam and starring Bruce Willis, based on the short film La jetée. Willis' character Cole volunteers to go on a mission into his past (1996) to prevent a plague from being released by a terrorist organization, The Army of the Twelve Monkeys. When he arrives he is assumed to be insane and institutionalized.

    • Dean: He's using the Biff strategy.
      Referencing Back to the Future II (1989), when Marty McFly's nemesis Biff Tannen's travels back in time to give himself a sports almanac that lets him bet on sporting events, knowing the outcome, and winning big.

    • Dean: Back to the Future III.
      Referencing the Back to the Future movies, when Marty McFly (Michael J. Fox) goes back to the 1950s using a DeLorean modified by his friend, scientist Doc Brown. Although Dean mentions the third movie, all of them have variations on leaving messages for someone in the future.

    • Dean: Yes, sir, I am, uh, Special Agent Costner.
      One of several references to the 1987 movie adaptation of the TV series The Untouchables. Kevin Costner plays Ness, while Sean Connery (also referenced) plays local cop Jim Malone. The "Chicago Way" is when someone does something to you, you do something even worse back to them.
