Gas Station Clerk
Why didn't Dean track Sam's phone when he first went missing like he did after Sam knocked him out in the motel room?
When Sam hit Dean with the gun, Dean collapsed with his right hand beside his body. However, the next shot showed his right hand was beside his head.
Jo had a bruise on her forehead when Sam tied her to the pole but the scene she's helping Dean up from the water, looked more like she had a cut. Back to the bar patching up Dean's wound, she had a bruise again.
When Sam puts his hand on Dean's shoulder you can see Dean grabbing Sam's arm because of the pain. Then the camera switches toward Sam and then back to Dean grabbing Sam's arm again.
Dean's cell phone still works even after he fell into the water.
Trivia: When Dean is on the website to locate Sam via GPS, he is logged in as "Dean J. MaHogOff.
Sam: By the way, you really look like crap, Dean.
Dean: Yeah, right back at ya.
Sam (possessed): All that I had to hold on to, was that I would climb out one day, and that I was gonna torture you... nice and slow, like pulling the wings off an insect. But whatever I do to you, it's nothing compared to what you do to yourself is it? I can see it in your eyes, Dean, you're worthless. You couldn't save your dad, and deep down, you know that you can't save your brother. They'd been better off without you.
Dean: This guy? (to Sam) You were drinking malt liquor?
Clerk: Not after he whipped the bottle at my friggin' head!
Dean: This guy?
Clerk: What, am I speaking Urdu?
Dean: You saw (Sam) smoking?
Clerk: Yeah, guy's a chimney.
Sam: I don't wanna hurt anyone else. I don't wanna hurt you.
Dean: You won't. Whatever this is, you can fight it.
Sam: I can't. Not forever.
Manager: It's past checkout and I've got a couple here who needs a room.
Dean: (looks at hooker and customer in hall) Yeah, I bet they do.
Bobby: Where's Dean?
Sam: Holed up somewhere with a girl and a twelve-pack.
Bobby: Yeah? Is she pretty?
Sam: You ask me, he's in way over his head.
Sam: No matter what I did, you wouldn't shoot.
Dean: It was the right move, Sam, it wasn't you.
Sam: Yeah, this time. What about next time?
Dean: Sam, when Dad told me I might have to kill you, it was only if I couldn't save you. Now if it's the last thing I do, I'm gonna save you.
Jo: (Looking at Sam's burn) That looks like it hurts.
Sam: Nah, just had a run in with a hot stove.
Bobby: Don't try and con a con man.
Bobby: Here, take these.
Sam: What are they?
Bobby: Charms. They'll fend off possession. That demon's still out there. This'll stop it from getting back up in ya.
Dean: That sounds vaguely dirty, but er, thanks.
Sam: You know when people wanna describe the worst possible thing? They say it's like hell. (punches Dean) Well, there's a reason for that. Hell is like, ah... (punch) Well, it's like hell. Even for demons. (punch) It's a prison made of bone, and flesh and blood and fear. (punch) And you sent me back there.
Sam: No. Not any more. Now I'm Sam. (punch) By the way, saw your dad there, he says "Howdy."
(referring to an old, beat-up car)
Dean: Oh please tell me you didn't steal this.
Dean: Feel like talking now?
Sam: Sam's still my meat-puppet, I'll make him bite off his tongue.
(after arriving at a gas station)
Dean: All right, receipt's for 10 gallons at pump number 2. (pause) Getting any goosebumps yet? "God this looks familiar" déjà vu vibes?
Sam: (in a sing-song voice) My daddy shot your daddy in the head.
Dean: I'll call you later, okay? (leaves)
Jo: No, you won't.
Dean: (talking on the phone) Hi, uh, so sorry to bother you, but, uh, my son snuck out of the house last night and, uh, went to a, uh, Justin Timberlake concert... what? Yeah... Justin is quite the triple threat.
Dean: What's going on with you, Sam? Hmmm? 'Cause smokin'... throwin' bottles at people... that sounds more like me than you.
Dean: Okay... now this is disturbing. (lifts up pack of cigarettes, Sam stares in shock) C'mon, man, this couldn't have been you, it had to be someone else, someone who.. uhh.. (smells cigarettes) ...smokes menthols.
Sam: Dean, back from the dead. Getting to be a regular thing for you, isn't it? Like a cockroach.
Dean: How bout I smack that smartass right out of your mouth?
Sam: Oh, careful now...wouldn't want to bruise this fine packaging.
Dean: You never told me this.
Sam: I didn't want to scare you.
Dean: Well, bang up job on that.
(Dean chuckles to himself)
Sam: Dean, what?
Dean: Dude, you like full-on had a girl inside you for like a whole week. That's pretty naughty.
Dean: The room's been quiet, nobody's noticed anything unusual.
Sam: You mean no one saw me walking around covered in blood.
Dean: Mmm-yeah, that's what I mean.
Dean: (to Sam) You checked in two days ago under the name Richard Sambora. I think the scariest part about this whole thing is that you're a Bon Jovi fan.
Dean: (holding gun) You know, I've tried so hard to keep you safe.
Sam: I know.
Dean: I can't. I'd rather die. (puts down gun)
Sam: No. You'll live. (picks up gun) You'll live to regret this. (knocks him unconscious)
Music: The Crystal Ship by The Doors, Back on the Road Again by REO Speedwagon, Ashes to Ashes by Tarbox Ramblers, Smoke On The Water by Deep Purple (Dean's ringtone)
Near the end of the episode, after the failed exorcism, Bobby burns the binding link, forcing the demon to leave. Sam says "Did I miss anything?", which is where the scene originally was supposed to end. However, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki came up with the idea of Dean punching Sam, the producers liked the idea, and ran with it.
This episode was alternately titled "Welcome to my Nightmare."
Dean passes a section of road with a road sign saying Twin Lakes 100 miles. This stretch of road was also used in the episodes "Phantom Traveler" and "Home."
