(plays over the closing montage)


Sam: Where'd you ditch the body?

Dean: School playground.
Sam: Come on.

Dean: Hospital parking lot.
Sam: But what I don't get is, why would Crowley have Amara on Earth in the first place? Wouldn't it be smarter to keep her in Hell?
Dean: Yeah, but then he'd have to spend more time there and he hates that place.
Crowley: You have tremendous power and soon you'll have even more. But I have something you lack... wisdom, experience. I helped put Lucifer back in his Cage. I rose through the ranks of Hell, defeated all comers to claim the throne. And a few minor set backs aside, I'm still here. I don't know how to impart what I've learned to you, how to teach you. At the rate that you're growing I'll probably never get the chance to figure it out. Perhaps you don't need my tutelage, but I believe deep down in my gut I have something to offer you, if you just give me a chance.
Metatron: Do you have any idea how much stuff I had to steal and then pawn to pay for that?
Demon: Turn to the graph at the bottom of twenty seven and you'll see a nearly 40% decrease in soul collections in the Pacific Northwest in the past three years. An unexpected consequence of legalized marijuana? Some analysts think so, others are not quite so sure.
Crowley: Do you know how disturbing it was to realize that I couldn't bring myself to kill you? I've had tons of chances over the years, some you don't even know about, but... Still, I made peace with it. Embraced my softer side, learned to accept that there was just too much going on between you and I -- Bromance. But you know what? I think I am gonna kill you today. I feel different somehow, ready. What can I say? Fatherhood changes a man.
Amara: Tell me what is happening here, between us? You save me, I save you. Why? You were the first thing I saw when I was freed, and it had been so long. Maybe that's it. My first experience of His creation. You can't help but represent that for me, the sweet triumph and the even sweeter folly of what He's wrought. There's no fighting it. I'm fascinated.
Metatron: The truth would make the Bible thumpers' heads explode. I mean, they want their God to be a finger-snapping all-powerful creator. They want magic, Mary Poppins. But what he did... Creation. That took work, took sacrifice. In order to create the world, God had to give up the only thing He'd ever known. He had to betray and sacrifice His only kin. The Darkness -- His sister.
Amara: It's been great seeing you again, Dean, but it's time for me to go. There's a whole world out there for me to explore, and I can practically taste it. Soon, I'll be strong enough to do what I came here to do.

Dean: What's that?

Amara: Settle an old score. The oldest score.
Sam: Guys. Bigger fish to fry here. Amara's in the wind.

Dean: Yeah, God's frickin' sister.
Castiel: You said you were close. Dean, how'd she get away?
Dean: I'm sorry, what part of God's frickin' sister didn't you understand? She overpowered me, end of story. What's our plan here, fellas? You said you got everything you could out of Metatron, right? So where on Earth are we gonna find an answer on how to stop her? I don't suppose God's decided to share some wisdom on the matter?

Sam: I'll look into the lore.

Trivia & References

"Our Little World" is the title of a song by Stephen Sondheim from the musical Into the Woods (a favorite of writer Robert Berens). The song is sung from the perspective of Rapunzel and her mother the Witch, who has her daughter locked away from the world in a tower.
Castiel was watching reruns of The Jenny Jones Show.
Dean: Okay, I thought you were going for socially acceptable binge watching, you know The Wire, Game of Thrones.

Castiel: Yeah, well man cannot live on caviar alone, Dean.

Castiel's line is a take on the quote attributed to Jesus in Matthew 4:4:
"But Jesus answered, 'It is written: 'Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'"
Marco: Yeah, well demon souls do a body good.
Reference to the Milk, It Does the Body Good ad campaign.
Dean: Oh right, I keep forgetting about you and Crowley's 'Summer of Love.'
The Summer of Love was a social phenomenon that took place in 1967.
Amara: If nonsensical slogans attached to idiot pictures of domestic animals counts as the world.

Crowley: Excuse me?
Amara: Memes.

Metatron's job as a freelance videographer is reminiscent of the character Lou Bloom, played by Jake Gyllenhaal, in the film Nightcrawler.
Castiel: What do you know about the Darkness?

Metatron: The band?

Dean: Look, Cas, I'm as glad as anyone that Stella got her groove back, okay. But you let Metatron go?
