Quotes

Sam: Is that a hickey?

Dean: And? It was Valentines's Day. I can't help it if I'm a hopeless romantic.
Sam: You got half of that right.

Dean: Just doing my civic duty, helping all the single ladies. You know the best thing about February 14th? You don't have to be 'Mr. Right,' just 'Mr. Right Now.'
Dean: Well, that blows. But if her name's not Amara, how is that us?

Sam: Because her heart was ripped out.
Dean: On Valentine's Day?
Sam: Yeah.

Dean: Was it, like, an ironic werewolf?
Dean: It was Dan who stole the nanny cam.
Sam: Why? He was schtupping the sitter.
Dean: I need a beer, regroup, maybe get lucky.

Sam: Didn't you just get lucky?
Dean: That was in Kansas. What do you say, you with me? Go scrape a few hearts off the barroom floor?

Sam: I think I'll pass. I'm gonna hit the lore, but you go be you.
Sam: So the curse is transmittable?
Dean: Like a magic STD. Okay, that works. Kinda makes you nostalgic for good old-fashioned herpes.
Sam: Witch-killing bullets.
Dean: We gotta come up with a better name than that.
"Amara": I understand Dean.

Dean: Is that right?

"Amara": The longing in your heart, I feel it too.
"Amara": I can see inside your heart, feel the love you feel. Except, it's cloaked in shame. When it comes to this, you can't help yourself. So why fight it? Just give in.
Dean: Honestly? What you honestly think the sister of God is my deepest darkest desire.

Sam: She isn't?
Dean: No, she can't be.
Sam: Why not?
Dean: Why? Because if she was, then that means I'm-
Sam: Means you're what? Complicit? Weak? Evil?
Dean: For starters, yeah.

Sam: Dean, do you honestly think you ever had a choice in the matter? She's the sister of God. And for some reason she picked you, and that sucks, but if you think I'm gonna blame you or judge you, I'm not.
Sam: Just how bad is it?

Dean: Standing here right now? Every bone in my body wants to run her through, send her back to that hole she crawled out of. But when I'm near her... I don't know -- something happens. I can't explain it. But to call it desire, love -- it's not that. I'm screwed, man. We want to kill the Darkness. We need to kill the Darkness. And I don't think I can. I'm sorry to do that to you, you know? But when it comes down to it...

Sam: I got it Dean.

Trivia & References

"Love Hurts" is a reference to the song of the same name by The Everly Brothers, which was most famously covered by Scottish hard rock band Nazareth in 1975. "Love Hurts" was also previously used in episode 6.14 Mannequin 3: The Reckoning, which was also written by Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder.
The episode has a theme reminiscent of the 2014 horror film It Follows. The film tells the story of a curse that passed through sexual transmission. The entity "It" will pursue the victims of the curse at a walking pace, sometimes taking on the appearance of loved ones, before killing them. The only way to keep "It" at bay is by passing on the curse to someone else through the act of sex.
A copy of Heart-Shaped Box by Joe Hill can be seen on the coffee table as Staci goes to sit and watch TV.
The shows Staci channel surfs through include Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell (episode: "True Love Will Find You"), Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter (episode: "Bark Bark Yum Yum") and Rick and Morty (episode: "Rick Potion #9"). All the episodes revolve around the concept of love.
Dean: Yeah, and what'd you do judgey? Curl up in your Snuggie, watch 'Fifty Shades' on cable?
A snuggie is a cross between a dressing gown and a blanket. "Firty Shades" refers to the BDSM themed movie Fifty Shades of Grey based on the book by E. L. James.
Dean uses the alias "Agent Weller" a reference to singer ad musician Paul Weller from the English bands The Jam and Style Council.
Dean: Well, step aside Urkel.
Steve urkel was a dorky character on the 90s sitcom Family Matters.
Sam: Shapeshifter.

Dean: Yahtzee.

Dean: Hey, any luck?

Sam: No. You?
Dean: No. Hey, what's a-ah 'dad bod?'

Dean: Riddle me this. Why did Staci die first if she was kissed second?
Dean: Listen to me. Sonja is not just anyone, she is a wicked witch who offed your husband and tried to kill you. So if she shows up here, you punch or you stab her or you drop a freaking house on her if you have to.
Sam: Here we go. Someone chants the curse and lays a wet one on you, then the victim is seduced and killed by the qareen. But instead of taking the form of Barbara Eden, they present themselves as your darkest, deepest desire.
Barbara Eden is best known for playing the character Jeannie in the 1965 sitcom I Dream of Jeannie.
Dean: Silver lining about being cursed. I'll finally get some face time with Daisy Duke. My deepest, darkest desire.

Sam: Seriously?
Dean: Ever since I was seven.
Sam: So, Bach not Simpson?
Dean: Pfft... Eh, I guess I wouldn't say 'no' to either.

Daisy Duke was a character on the 1979 TV series The Dukes of Hazzard, famous for wearing cut-off shorts, which in turn became known as Daisy Dukes. Daisy was portrayed by actress Catherine Bach in the TV series and Jessica Simpson in the 2005 film adaptation.
