Sam: Dean, there's nothing here to even remotely suggest there's a case.

Dean: There is nothing here to even remotely suggest there isn't a case. Boom.
Sam: C'mon man.

Dean:Sam, out there hunting, it's the only normal I know. We got work to do.
Dean: I'm gonna throw up.
Sam: I mean I gotta say, it's kinda charming. The-the production value, and the... No? No. No. I'm gonna check for EMF, you-you look for, uh cursed objects.
Dean: What are they doing?

Marie: Oh, uh they're rehearsing the "BM" scene.
Dean: The bowel movement scene?
Marie: No, the boy melodrama scene... You know the scene where the boys get together and their driving or leaning against Baby, drinking a beer, sharing their feelings. The two of them alone, but together -- bonded, united, the power of their-
Dean: Why are they standing so close together?
Marie: Reasons.
Dean: You know they're brothers, right.
Marie: Well duh. But subtext.

Dean: Why don't you take a sub-step back ladies!
Dean: You wrote your own ending, with spaceships.
Marie: And robots, and some ninjas, and then Dean becomes a woman... It's just for a few scenes.
Dean: Alright Shakespeare you know that I can actually tell you what really happened with Sam and Dean. A friend of mine hooked me up with the unpublished-unpublished books. So Sam came back from Hell, but without his soul, and Cas brought in a bunch of Leviathans from Purgatory. They lost Bobby, and then Cas and Dean got stuck in Purgatory, Sam hit a dog. Uh, they met a prophet named Kevin, they lost him too. Then Sam underwent a series of trials, in an attempt to close the Gates of Hell, which nearly cost him his life. And Dean, he became a demon, a Knight of Hell actually.

Marie: Wow.
Dean: Yup.

Marie: That is some of the worst fanfiction I have ever heard. I mean seriously where did your friend find this garbage? And not saying that ours is a masterpiece or anything, but jeez. I'll have to send you some links later.
Marie: It's all my fault, if I hadn't written this dumb play none of this would have happened.

Dean: Okay, well first of all, the play's not dumb.
Maeve: I thought you didn't believe in this interpretation.
Dean: Yeah, I don't. Like at all. But you do, okay. And I need you to believe in it with all you got. So we can kill Calliope and save all your friends. Can you do that.

Marie: Yeah. Your right. If Sam and Dean were real, they wouldn't back down from a fight, especially my sweet, brave, selfless Sam. There's nothing he can't do.
Siobhan/"Dean": Your right Sammy, out on the road, just the two of us.

Marie/"Sam": The two of us against the world!

Sam: (to the real Dean) What she said.
Marie: Dean? You never should've thrown this away.

[hands him the Samulet prop]

Dean: It never really worked. I don't need a symbol to remind me how I feel about my brother.

Trivia & References

The episode title "Fan Fiction" refers to stories written by fans that make use of material provided by a media text. Other creative and transformative fan activities include create art, videos and cosplay. See Fanworks and Fanfiction for more details.
The movie Rushmore was also an inspiration for the episode according to Thompson, “As soon as I heard it I started thinking about the movie ‘Rushmore’, which is ultimately this one kid [who] puts on these love letters to these movies that he loves. It just felt like a great way to craft a love letter to the show and a love letter [to the fans].”
Writer Robbie Thompson named the characters in the high school musical cast after people in his wife’s theater group.
Dean: Ugh, theater kids. Great.

Sam: What? I was a theater kid.
Dean: Barely. You did Our Town, which was cool. But Then you did that crappy musical.
Sam: Oklahoma? Hugh Jackman got cast off of Oklahoma.
Dean: You ran tech, Wolverine.
Sam: Shut up.

Sam and Dean use the aliases, "Agents Smith and Smith" (no relation).
Dean: If there was singing, you know, and that's a big if. If there was singing, it would be classic rock, and not this Andrew Floyd Weber crap.

Sam: Lloyd Weber.

Sam: Destiel? Shouldn't it be Dee-stiel? And what about Sastiel? Samstiel?
Sam: Look man -- no EMF, no hex bags. None of their props are remotely hinky. Other than the Charlie Kaufman of it all, I got nothing.
Maggie: I've been telling you all along Marie, if it's not canon then it shouldn't be in the show. We should have just done The Outsiders like I told you.
Marie: Gird your lions, it's horrifying.
Marie: Okay. Let's do this. I understudied Sam... so I used this for my one woman Orphan Black show last year, but it's going to have to work for Sam. Writer, director, actor. I'm gonna Barbara Streisand this bitch.
Maeve: Okay, we're through the looking glass here people. Prep the wendigo set, let's prep the priest costumes, andSarah get our understudies into hair and make-up.
Maggie uses a copy of Homer's Odyssey to brain Calliope.


Thompson co-wrote one song with Christopher Lennertz and two with Jay Gruska for the episode.
The title card consists of a lightbulb sign for the play, followed by a montage of all the title cards ever used (with the exception of the standard season 7 title card and clown title card from 7.14 Plucky Pennywhistle's Magical Menagerie) ending on the season 10 card.
John DeSantis, who appeared uncredited as the Scarecrow, previously played Freeman Daggett in 3.13 Ghostfacers and The Golem in 8.13 Everybody Hates Hitler.
Like in 1.01 Pilot and 2.22 All Hell Breaks Loose: Part Two, one of the Winchesters tosses a gun into the trunk of the Impala and states "we've got work to do." However, unlike those times, its not at the end of the episode but near the beginning.
Aside from the actual musical itself, there are a number of references within the episode to the Show, fandom, and the fact that this is the 200th episode of Supernatural.
  • the boys are staying at the Route 200 Motel in room 200.
  • Dean and Marie both remark that "Carry On Wayward Son" is a "classic."
  • Dean breaks the fourth wall and gives an annoyed look to the camera after learning about Destiel.
  • Before the musical starts Dean turns the Cas characters' tie around, as Castiel always has his tie on back to front.
