Dean: Dude, if a shrink interviewed us at that age, you think the report would be all kittens and rainbows? Come on, she's a good kid. There's got to be an explanation for this man, there's just got to be.
Dark Charlie: Oh Sam, you're adorable. You're not gonna hurt me, in fact that's your problem. All good guy code no bite, what a waste. And you, always letting this albatross hold you back.
There are two of you? One good and one bad?
Dean: Yeah, and what, dick you is some sort of a ninja?
She's a badass, yeah.
Charlie: We're still connected physically, if you hurt her, you hurt me. But bottom line, she's bad and I'm good. And let me just tell you being good is really annoying. Normally at a place like this, I'd be pounding Harvey Wallbangers and checking out the bartender's ass. Now all I wanna do is sip club sodas and send her to college.

Dean: Right yeah, after centuries of murder.
Charlie: Yeah well, there's one thing you have that he didn't. You're a Winchester... I forgive you Dean.
Dean: Yeah well, I don't.
Charlie: I know, kinda your move. How's that working out for you?
Dean: I'm so sorry kiddo.
Then prove it.
Charlie: Arrivederci, bitches.
Sam: She's right, Dean. You can do this. We can do this.
Dean: Then let's get to work.
