Donna: Sorry for calling you guys, but Jody's got her hands full with the girls.
Dean: Hey, never apologize for calling us.
Dean: You got up at 10am this morning. 10 am. You Mr. Rise and Freakin' Shine. And then you turn down pancakes.

Sam: I wasn't hungry.

Dean: They're pancakes. Look, I know you're in a dark place right now, okay. I mean we lost Jack and Mom is... I think about him too, all the time. But you can't let it eat you up. Now look when I was broken up, you were there for me. Well I'm here for you now. And I'm telling ya, the only way out of this is through. Now when everything goes to hell, what do we do? We put out heads down and do the work. We'll find Jack, we'll save Mom. We will. But right now, Donna needs our help.
Sam: Okay, look. Obviously I'm here for Donna, all right. I wanna help.
Dean: I know you do. So let's find this son of a bitch.
Donna: Don't lie to me. Don't lie to God!
Marlon: Look I see someone I think nobody's gonna miss, I send a message. I get paid.

Dean: And you feel good about that?

Marlon: No. But, you know. You don't got bills?
Donna: Where's Clegg?

Marlon: I tell you, you'll kill me.

Donna: Oh, I'm killing you either way. You just gotta decide if you want it fast, or slow.
Sam: You. You're the Butterfly.
Clegg: And you're Sam Winchester. You and your brother are famous. Hell, when I saw that fancy car, I knew who you were. And knew you'd be trouble. Tried to give you that preacher, but you saw right through that. Now it's on to plan B.
Clegg: How many monsters you think are out there Sam, you know if you had to guess?

Sam: Hundreds, thousands.

Clegg: Add a zero, actually add two. See those freaks that you and your brother chase, those are just the ones that can't pass. Either because they're too mean or stupid. Or both. But most monsters, hell they could be your next door neighbor. They work a regular job, mow the lawn on a Saturday. And they need to eat. Which is where I come in.
Dean: I know it's been a day. But now you know what's out there. It'd be nice to have another good guy on our side.

Doug: I -- No. Maybe you all can live this life. But I can't. I just wanna go home.
Donna: So we'll go home.
Doug: And what? I'm a cop, because I like helping folks. But, vampires? That's... I'm not.
Donna: Doug. I'm sorry I lied to ya. But I can't give this up.

Doug: I know. Donna, you kill monsters. You're a damn hero. But that's... not me. I'm sorry. I love you. I'm sorry.
Dean: You were a little tough on Donna back there.

Sam: What?
Dean: Just saying.
Sam: Was I wrong? I mean when has knowing us ever worked out, for anyone?
Dean: We save people Sam.
Sam: And we also get people killed Dean. Kaia, for instance, she helped us. And she died for it.
Dean: Hey, look I know you're in some sort of a-

Sam: No, no, no, no, no. Don't, don't. You keep saying I'm 'in a dark place,' but I'm not, Dean. Everything I'm saying is the truth. It's our lives. And I try to pretend it didn't have to be. I tried to pretend we could have Mom back and Cas and help Jack. But we can't. This ends one way for us Dean. It ends bloody. It ends bad.

Trivia & References

"Breakdown" may be a reference to the 1997 film of the same name starring Kurt Russell, about a husband who's wife is abducted by truckers.
Dean: Breaker, breaker 1-9 this is 67 Midnight Rider, looking for the 411 on my Alice in Wonderland.
Felix: Breaker, breaker Midnight Rider, Felix the Cat here.
Doug: It mean's she's barely talking to me, and we always talk. About the Viks. About Real Houswives. About everything. It's a tough time, I know. But I think she's hiding something from me.
Donna: You sure? I mean the Bible doesn't have much good to say about them. 'But the Pharisees and the lawyers rejected God’s purpose for themselves, not having been baptized by John.'

Marlon: You shouldn't have been so rough with me. I hold a grudge.

Dean: Well. Bring it Twilight.

Sam: So you sell them people?

Clegg: I sell them people other people won't miss. And because I do that, I save lives. If my customers didn't have me, then all those Hungry Hungry Hippos would be out there, huntin' and killin' and you couldn't stop them. No one could. You should be thanking me.
