  • Quotes

    • Bobby: Karen?
      Karen Singer: You were expecting Farrah Fawcett?
      Bobby: No. She always calls first.

    • Rufus: Seriously, though, Bobby, how come...?
      Bobby: Dog with a bone, Rufus.
      Rufus: No, I really want to know, man--why no kids?
      Bobby: Ain't that deep. Dad was a mean drunk. I figured I'd be just like him. And, hey, look, I was right. No sense passing on the legacy.
      Rufus: You're too hard on yourself. You're more of a cranky drunk.

    • Dean: We're coming for you. And not just to hurt you--to kill you. You understand me?
      Dick Roman: Come on, Dean, I can't be killed.
      Dean: You're gonna wish you could, then.
      Dick Roman: (laughs) That's some conviction. You'd really crush it on the motivational circuit.
      Dean: You're either laughing because you're scared or you're laughing because you're stupid. I'll see you soon, Dick.

    • Reaper: Bobby... you've helped. You got handed a small, unremarkable life, and you did something with it. Most men like you die of liver disease, watching Barney Miller reruns. You've done enough. Believe me.
      Bobby: I don't care.
      Reaper: Why?
      Bobby: Because they're my boys.

    • Bobby: Well that's a load of crap. Who the hell were you to say?
      Ed Singer: I'm your father. And you show your father respect.
      Bobby: The day he deserves it. You drunken bully. Punching women and kids, is that what they call fatherhood in your day?
      Ed Singer: You deserved it. Believe me, you were nothing but ungrateful.
      Bobby: I was a kid! Kids ain't supposed to be grateful. They're supposed to eat your food and break your heart, ya selfish dick! You died and I was still so afraid I'd turn into you, I never even had kids of my own.
      Ed Singer: Good. You break everything you touch.
      Bobby: Well, as fate would have it, I adopted two boys and they grew up great. They grew up heroes. So you can go to hell!

    • Dean: All right, scoot, jerkface. Show your elders some respect.
      Sam: You scoot, asshat.
      Dean: Did we get licorice?
      Sam: No, we did not get licorice. We got good snacks. Licorice is disgusting.
      Dean: I'm sorry, I didn't quite understand that, uh, Mr. "Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich."
      Sam: I stand by that sandwich. Nobody likes licorice. It's--it's made of dirt.
      Dean: It is a classic movie food. It's right up there with popcorn.
      Sam: Popcorn?
      Dean: Yeah.
      Sam: You're out of your mind.
      Dean: What, it's like little chewy pieces of heaven.
