Look after your brother, ya idjit.
"Idjit" is an affectionate, but exasperated, appellation usually applied by Bobby to Sam and Dean. It has become something of a catch phrase, and Bobby's use of it is imitated by Crowley in 6.04 Weekend at Bobby's. In 7.10 Death's Door, Bobby's dying word to The Boys is "idjits", said with a smile.
Following Bobby's death, Garth steps into his role, adopting a number of his mannerisms including using the phrase "idjit”.
Idjit = idiot. It’s a Southern thing.
