  • Quotes

    • Sam: I mean, it's all pretty spotty, you know. I just remember I was with--I was with two guys. One was like a male model type, and the other was an older guy.

    • Soulless Sam: My God. Am I really that gawky? Howdy.
      Sam: This is impossible.
      Soulless Sam: Cold, try again.
      Sam: I'm, uh, I'm hallucinating.
      Soulless Sam: Warmer. But see, normally you're awake when you're tripping balls.
      Sam: I'm dreaming?
      Soulless Sam: And someone just won a copy of the home game.

    • Sam: I have no idea what you're talking about.
      Soulless Sam: Why would you? You're Jello, pal, unlike me.
      Sam: What are you?
      Soulless Sam: I'm not handicapped. I'm not saddled with a soul. In fact, I used to skipper this meatboat for a while. Was smooth sailing. I was sharp, strong. That is, until they crammed your soul back in. Now look at you. Same misty-eyed milksop you always were. That's because souls are weak. They're a liability.

    • Crowley: Your Purgatory power shake, monsieur. Half monster, half virgin.
      Castiel: Thank you.
      Crowley: You seem even more constipated than usual. Maybe get you some colon blow?

    • Sam: Out there in the real world, I'm at Bobby's, aren't I?
      Hell Sam: How did you know?
      Sam: This whole time, I smelled nothing but Old Spice and whiskey.

    • Dean: Well, how the hell are we going to take out that many angels?
      Bobby: We don't. We'll ninja our way in.
      Dean: Awesome. Until they hear your knees squeak.
      Bobby: Shut up.
      Dean: Oh, now what, you got thin skin?
      Bobby: No, shut up.

    • Castiel: Consorting with demons. Thought that was beneath you.
      Raphael: Heard you were doing it. Sounded like fun.

    • Castiel: You can't imagine what it's like. They're all inside me. Millions upon millions of souls.
      Crowley: Sounds sexy. Exit stage Crowley.

    • Castiel: I'm your new God. A better one. So you will bow down, profess your love unto Me, Your Lord. Or I shall destroy you.

  • Notes

  • Allusions

    • Title:
      Referencing the 1934 Alfred Hitchcock movie about a British couple who learn of an assassination plot. Their daughter is abducted to force their silence, and the couple must go off on their own to rescue their child and stop the assassination attempt. Hitchcock remade his own movie in 1956, recasting the couple as Americans with a son rather than a daughter.

    • Robin: Well, I love what you've done to the place. It's very Beautiful Mind meets Se7en.
      Referencing first the movie A Beautiful Mind (2001), about real-life mathematician and cryptographer John Nash. And then Se7en (1995), a movie about a serial killer who uses the Seven Deadly Sins as themes to kill his victims.

    • Robin: Nice to meet you, Jimmy Page. And Neil Peart. And Angus Young.
      Referencing rock stars Jimmy Page with Led Zeppelin, Neil Peart with Rush, and Angus Young, lead guitarist of AC/DC.

    • Dean: You know, Dreamscape his noggin', something.
      Referencing the 1984 movie where Dennis Quaid plays a young psychic who has the ability to enter the "dreamscapes" of other people as they sleep and influence their dreams.

    • Dean: T. Rex, maybe?
      Referencing the scene in Jurassic Park (1993) when a T. Rex approaches a stranded vehicle in the park. The water in a glass on the dashboard vibrates as a Tyrannosaurus Rex approaches, in a manner similar to how the water in the puddle vibrates as Dean and Bobby hear the sound approaching them.
