  • Quotes

    • Sam: It's been used by shamans and medicine men for centuries.
      Dean: Let me guess, they dose up, break out the didgeridoos and start kicking around the hacky?

    • Dean: (about to drink the dream tea) Well, shall we dim the lights and sync up Wizard of Oz and Dark Side of the Moon?
      Sam: Why?
      Dean: What did you do in college?

    • Sam: Dean, you sure you don't want me to drive? You... you seem a little... caffeinated.

    • Sam: One problem though: we are fresh out African dream roots, so unless you know someone who can score some...
      Dean: Crap!
      Sam: What?
      Dean: Bela...
      Sam: Bela? Crap!

    • Sam: What's the big deal? You get sloppy in bars and hit on chicks all the time.
      Dean: It's kinda slim pickin's around here.

    • Dean: My father was an obsessed bastard! All that crap he dumped on me about protecting Sam, that was his crap! He's the one who couldn't protect his family! He's the one who let Mom die, who wasn't there for Sam! I always was! It wasn't fair! I didn't deserve what he put on me! And I don't deserve to go to Hell! (Dean shoots Nightmare Dean with shotgun)
      Dean (Nightmare): (after getting up from shotgun blast with demon eyes) You can't escape me, Dean. You're gonna die, Dean! And this, this is what you're gonna become!

    • Sam: You want to go dream walking inside Bobby's head?
      Dean: Yeah, why not? Maybe we could help.
      Sam: We have no idea what's crawling around in there.
      Dean: How bad could it be?
      Sam: Bad!
      Dean: Dude... it's Bobby!

    • (as Dean impersonates a police detective)
      Jeremy: I had this most vivid super intense dream, like a bad acid trip, you know...
      Dean: Totally. (pause) I mean, no.

    • Dean (Nightmare): I mean, think about it. All he ever did was train you; boss you around. But Sam, Sam he doted on, Sam he loved.
      Dean (Real): I mean it, I'm getting angry.
      Dean (Nightmare): Dad knew who you really were. A good soldier and nothing else. Daddy's blunt little instrument. Your own father didn't care whether you lived or died, why should you?

    • Dean: There you are. What are you doing?
      Sam: Having a drink?
      Dean: It's two in the afternoon. Drinking whiskey?
      Sam: I drink whiskey all the time.
      Dean: No you don't.

    • Sam: What was Bobby doing in Pittsburgh?
      Dean: I don't know, unless he was taking an extremely lame vacation.

    • Dean: Dude, you were out. And making some serious happy noises. Who were you dreaming about?
      Sam: What? No one. Nothing.
      Dean: Come on, you can tell me. Angelina Jolie?
      Sam: No!
      Dean: Brad Pitt?
      Sam: No. No!

    • Bobby: Before I knew it was him, he offered me a beer. I drank it. Dumbest friggin' thing.
      Dean: Aw, I don't know. It wasn't that dumb.
      Sam: Dean, you didn't.
      Dean: I was thirsty.
      Sam: That's great! Now he can come after either one of you.

    • Dean: Sam?
      Sam: Yeah?
      Dean: I've been doing some thinking. And well, the thing is, I don't want to die. I don't want to go to Hell.
      Sam: Okay. We'll find a way to save you.
      Dean: Okay, good.

    • Dean: I take it we believe the legends.
      Sam: When don't we?

    • Sam: The truth is, no one can save you.
      Dean: What I've been telling you.
      Sam: No, what I mean is no one can save you because you don't want to be saved.

  • Allusions

    • Sam: ..this doctor was testing the stuff on his patients, Tim Leary style...
      Doctor Timothy Francis Leary (1920-1996) was a writer and psychologist. He advocated the use and research of psychedelic drugs, and became famous as a proponent of the therapeutic and spiritual benefits of LSD. He became an idol of the 1960s counterculture.

    • Dean: (about to drink the dream tea) Well, shall we dim the lights and sync up Wizard of Oz and Dark Side of the Moon?
      This is based on the practice of listening to the Pink Floyd album The Dark Side of the Moon(1973 while watching The Wizard of Oz (1939). It is believed that the movie and the music synchronize, with numerous incidents of lyrics matching the action on the screen, creating something similar to a lengthy music video. Many of the viewers of what has been dubbed The Dark Side of the Rainbow watch it while under the influence of drugs and alcohol, making it a popular college event. Those associated with the band have denied that any synchronicity was intended.

    • Dean: Okay, I don't know what's weirder. The fact that we're in Bobby's head... or that he's dreaming of Better Homes and Gardens?
      Better Homes and Gardens is a well-known magazine in the United States that focuses on interests regarding homes, cooking, gardening, crafts, healthy living, decorating, and entertaining.

    • Sam: You take enough of it, with enough practice, you can become a regular Freddy Krueger.
