Sam: Yeah, pretty sure that's not Matt Damon.
Dean: No, it is.
Sam: Well Matt Damon just picked up a broom and started sweeping.
Sam: Dude, you wanted to come to L.A.
Dean: Yeah, for vacation! I mean, swimming pools and movie stars. Not to work.
Sam: Does this look like swimming-pool weather to you, Dean? It's practically Canadian.
Dean: Oh, like Poltergeist?
Sam: It could be a poltergeist.
Dean: No, no, no. Like the movie, Poltergeist. (Sam looks confused) You know nothing of your cultural heritage, do you?
Brad: Who says horror has to be dark? It's kind of depressing, don't you think?
Brad: Uh, excuse me, green-shirt guy? Yeah, yeah, you, come here. Could you get me a smoothie from Craft?
Dean: You want a what from who?
Dean: What's a PA?
Sam: I think they're kinda like slaves.
Sam: So what do you think?
Dean: Well, I think being a PA sucks, but the food these people get? Are you kidding me? I mean, look at these things, they're like miniature Philly cheese steak sandwiches, they're delicious! (offers one to Sam, who looks grossed out)
Sam: Maybe later.
Martin: Jay, the poor guy killed himself. Like, for real. Shouldn't we shut it down or something?
Jay Wiley: We had a moment of silence for him at breakfast. He was just a studio guy.
Tara: Why would a ghost be afraid of salt?
McG: What do you think?
Marty: I'm not married to salt. What do you want? Are we still sticking with condiments?
McG: Mmm, it just sounds different, not better. What else would a ghost be scared of?
Walter: You gotta be kidding me.
Marty: What would a ghost be scared of? Maybe, uh, maybe shotguns.
McG: That makes even less sense than salt.
Dean: This map is totally worth the $5 bucks. Hey, we gotta go check out Johnny Ramone's grave when we're done here.
Sam: You want to dig him up too?
Dean: Bite your tongue, heathen!

Announcer: They never forgive. They never forget. And this summer they're coming back again to settle the score... AGAIN!
Sam: You know, maybe the spirits are trying to shut down the movie because they think it sucks. 'Cause, I mean, it kind of does.
Walter: You two can leave, but Martin's gotta stay.
Dean: Sorry, can't do that. It's not that we like him or anything, it's a matter of principle.
Martin: I cannot believe there's an afterlife.
Dean: Oh, there's an afterlife all right. But mostly it's a pain in the ass.
Sam: How's it going in here?
Dean: It's going really good, man. Tara has really stepped up her performance. I think it's probably from all the sense memory stuff she's drawing on.
Sam: Sense memory?
Sam: Dean, you know when I ask how it's going here I'm talking about the case, right? We don't really work here.
Wendy: But if they're in Hell, how can they hear us?
Mitch: They must have super-hearing!
(Sam and Dean stop the fan)
Martin: You are one hell of a PA!
Dean: I know.
Sam: After seventy-five years, she suddenly goes homicidal. I mean, why now?
Dean: I don't know. Maybe she's mad they're making a scary flick.
Sam: Come on. Is it really that scary?
There is no Then and Now like in previous episodes.
