Sam: Seriously? This place is an old folks home?

Dean: Looks awesome. Maybe we oughta make a reservation.

Sam: Ha. We should be lucky to live long enough.
Sam: Turns out Harold was stealing the other resident's Viagra.
Dean: I know. A real dick move, huh?
Dean: You okay?
Sam: No, I'm not actually, not at all. Being so close to Lucifer, again... Brought stuff up, stuff I thought I forgot about.
Dean: I tried to kill her.

Castiel/Lucifer: The two of you are connected somehow by the Mark.
Dean: Yeah no, it's more than that.
Castiel/Lucifer: Attraction? Dean.

Dean: I know. I know, okay? Whatever it is -- attraction, connection. I gotta tell you man, I don't know if I can stop it. I don't know that I can resist it.
Mildred: I got dibs on the other guy. You can have the tall one. I'm not much of a mountain climber anymore.
Eileen: You sure you don't want both?
Sam: Eileen, you okay?

Eileen: I'm nervous. If this really is the banshee I've been looking for-

Sam: Eileen, in my experience, revenge is not all it's cracked up to be. Killing this banshee is not gonna bring your parents back.
Sam: I was studying law at Stanford when my brother came and got me so we could get our revenge.

Eileen: You've been hunting together ever since?

Sam: Yeah, I wouldn't do this without my brother. He's had my back every step of the way, even when I let him down.
Mildred: You wanna know the secret to living a long and happy life?

Dean: Actually, I do.

Mildred: Follow your heart. You do that, all the rest just figures itself out. I did that, I followed my heart. Traveled the world, made people smile, forget about their problems for a while. And then my heart said, 'well, you're done.' I had my fill and retired and I love it.
Dean: Your hand is still on my knee.

Mildred: I could move it up.

Dean: Okay. I'm gonna-
Sam: Dean. When I was with Lucifer, he um, showed me things. It was like a highlight reel of my biggest failures.

Dean: Yeah, he was messing with you. That's what he does.
Sam: Give me a sec. I should have looked for you. When you were in Purgatory, I should have turned over every stone, but I didn't, I stopped. And I've never forgiven myself for it.
Dean: Well, I have. Hey, that's in the past, man. What's done is done. All that matters now, all that's ever mattered is that we're together, so shut up and drink your beer. You gonna be able to sleep tonight?
Sam: Yeah, yeah. I think so. How about you?
Dean: I still got some ringing going on in my head, but nothing some good music couldn't wash out.
Sam: You know, I still can't figure it out. I mean, banshees go after the vulnerable, right? So, why'd it go after you?
Dean: You're overthinking it. It was going after Mildred, it saw my gold blade and acted out of self-defense. Simple.
Sam: Yeah, you're probably right.
Dean: I'm always right.

Sam: Yeah, yeah. Night.


"Into the Mystic" is a reference to the song of the same name by Van Morrison.
Lucifer: I'm not looking for a fight. In fact I am your only hope at beating the Darkness. I heard you kids had your big shot at the title and missed it. You don't need to be afraid brother, I am out of that awful, awful Cage. And I'm here to save you all -- Lucifer ex machina.
Refers to deus ex machina, a plot device whereby a seemingly unsolvable problem is suddenly and abruptly resolved by the contrived and unexpected intervention of some new event, character, ability or object.
Dean: So no retirement, huh?

Sam: Hey, you're the one who's always wanted to go out 'blaze of glory' style, preferably while the Bon Jovi song is playing.
Dean: I am a candle in the wind.

"I'm going down in a blaze of glory" is a line from Bon Jovi's Blaze of Glory that is repeated throughout the song. "A candle in the wind" is a line from the first verse. The lyrical I in the song compares him-/herself to Cain at one point and, in general, the song's lyrics fit Dean pretty well.
Dean and Sam use the aliases Agents Osborne and Butler, a reference to Ozzy Osborne and Geezer Butler of Black Sabbath.
Dean: Fingers crossed it's zombies so we can get our "Walking Dead" on.
The Walking Dead is a popular American TV series, set in a post-apocalyptic world.
Dean: I don't like using Mildred as bait.

Sam: You worried about her? Does this mean she has a shot?
Dean: I always did have a thing for Blanche on "The Golden Girls."
Sam: Seriously?
Dean: Hey don't judge what you don't understand, Sammy.
Sam: No, I'm not judging. I've just always had a thing for Sophia.
Dean: I could see that.

The Golden Girls was an American sitcom that aired from 1985 to 1992. It features four elderly ladies: Dorothy, Rose, Blanche (whom Dean 'had a thing for'), and Sophia (who is Dorothy's mother and whom Sam apparently 'had a thing for').
Dean: Tell me something. What'd you do before you retired?

Mildred: I was in a Patsy Cline tribute band.

Patsy Cline, real name Virginia Patterson Hensley, was an American country and pop singer of the late 50s and early 60s.
