While "Freaks and Geeks" was ultimately the kind of not-really-essential-to-the-story filler I specifically said I didn't want in the wake of last week's awesome chapter, it did have a couple things going for it.
Sam: I'm fine. Are you okay?
Sam: Yeah. Umm, Cass dinged up up pretty good.
Sam: And I just wanted to make sure you're okay.
Dean: What, like my feelings?
Sam: If that's what you want to talk about, sure.
Dean: Okay. I'll tell you what. Why don't I go get some, uh, herbal tea?
Dean: And you can find some Cowboy Junkies on the dial.
Sam: Eat me, Dean.
Dean: And you know what? We'll just talk it out. Good talk. Nay! Good talk. Very healthy!
Aidan: Hey, how about we start a new tradition and before each job, we give each other good-luck kisses?
Josephine: How about I punch you in the throat instead?
Dean: Okay, so how does this work? What, after--after soccer practice and the bake sale, they, uh, chop vampires' heads off?
Dean: I'm proud of you.
Krissy: Shut up before I punch you.
Krissy: You're all right for an old guy.
Dean: I'm really not that old.
Krissy: You keep telling yourself that.
