Directly following 7.09 How to Win Friends And Influence Monsters, Dean and Sam rush Bobby, who's been shot in the head by Dick Roman, to the Hammonton Regional Hospital Trauma Center.





Karen: You were expecting Farrah Fawcett?
Bobby: No, she always calls first.
Bobby's Dad: Oh, you deserved it. You were nothing but ungrateful.
Bobby: I was a kid! Kids aren't supposed to be grateful. They're supposed to eat your food and break your heart, you selfish dick.
Reaper: Bobby... you've helped. You got handed a small, unremarkable life, and you did something with it. Most men like you die of liver disease, watching Barney Miller reruns. You've done enough. Believe me.

Bobby: I don't care.
Reaper: Why?

Bobby: Because they're my boys.
Bobby: As fate would have it, I adopted two boys. And they grew up great. They grew up heroes.
Dean: All right, scoot, jerkface. Show your elders some respect.

Sam: You scoot, asshat.
Dean: Did we get licorice?
Sam: No, we did not get licorice. We got good snacks. Licorice is disgusting.
Dean: I'm sorry, I didn't quite understand that, uh, Mr. "Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich."
Sam: I stand by that sandwich. Nobody likes licorice. It's--it's made of dirt.
Dean: It is a classic movie food. It's right up there with popcorn.
Sam: Popcorn?
Dean: Yeah.
Sam: You're out of your mind.

Dean: What, it's like little chewy pieces of heaven.
