Quotes

Crowley: Lucifer's not content with slutting it from one random vessel to the next. He's moving on to blue chips. Celebrities, captains of industry. He just got a lot more dangerous.
Lucifer: Babies... That's what we are. Innocents all of us, struggling to walk upright with purpose and pride. And yet we need our Father... to be there when we fall. Today we lost a brother, tomorrow we will continue our work for the country. Amen.
Sam: Lucifer doesn't like being messed with. I guess when the archbishop's priests figured out he was possessed, they tried to keep it quiet, do an an exorcism. I mean not that it would have worked. Lucifer blew town, but not before he slaughtered the entire staff. So, we were on the right trail. Where's it go now?
Dean: I don't know. Who won the Nobel Peace Prize? Why don't we start there?
Sam: Crowley, can we just get the damn news without the drama?
Crowley: Can I get you without the flannel? No. Still I endure.
Castiel: Something's happened. Something. It's angel radio, there's so many voices.

Dean: What are they saying?
Castiel: There's been a massive surge in celestial energy. A Nephilim has come into being. It's the offspring of an angel and human.
Dean: And that's big news?
Castiel: Yes. But the power that produced this is immense. Much more powerful than a typical angel.
Sam: Lucifer.

Dean: Lucifer...? I didn't know he was dating.
Mr. Ketch: You. Angel. Wipe their memories. U.S. government plates. Elite dog catcher level. Someone special wants you. Whose hydrant have you lads been tinkling on?

Dean: I'm sorry, who the hell are you?

Mr. Ketch: Oh, where are my manners? Arthur Ketch, British Men of Letters.
Mr. Ketch: You. Halo. Do you sense I'm lying?

Castiel: My name is Castiel. And no. But the truth can be situational.

Mr. Ketch: Oh, I do enjoy an angel. But I understand your hesitation, you haven't exactly seen us at our best. Lady Bevell is a bit... excitable.
Kelly: Who are you people?

Rowena: Well, dear. I'm a witch, he's an angel.
Crowley: And I'm the King of Hell.
Kelly: Oh God.

Castiel: No, actually he left.
Lucifer: This isn't over, Sam!
Sam: Go to Hell!
Dean: We got him. We got Lucifer.

Trivia & References

"LOTUS" is a play on the acronym POTUS (President of the United States), in this case standing for "Lucifer of the United States."
As Lucifer is walking down the hall in the body of the archbishop, crosses begin turning upside down. An upside down cross, or Cross of St. Peter is actually a Christian symbol, only more recently been tied to anti-Christian imagery.
Castiel / Crowley: Agents.

Dean: Okay, this has got to stop. Gimme that.
Crowley: Armani!

Armani is an Italian luxury fashion brand known for their suits, shoes, watches, and other accessories.
Castiel: I agree with Agent Zappa.
Reference to musician Frank Zappa.
Dean: We'll look around, and if it is Lucifer we'll call the rest of the Scooby Gang.
Scooby Gang was the name of the team consisting of Buffy Summers' friends and colleagues on the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer. This, in turn, was a reference to the meddling kids (and their dog) who solved crimes together on the animated series Scooby-Doo, Where Are You! and its associated spin-offs, reboots, and movies.
Castiel: Well, at lest he'll be outside of the mansion.

Sam: Yeah, guarded like the Hope Diamond.

The Hope Diamond is one of the most well-known jewels in the world, weighing at 45.52 carats.
Sam: Do we have a plan?

Dean: Impeach LOTUS and find Rosemary's baby.

Impeachment is the process by which Congress removes the president from office, as outlined in the U.S. Constitution.
Rosemary's Baby is a 1968 horror movie about a woman who gives birth to the son of Satan.
Sam: I hung up.

Mr. Ketch: Yes you did. Which made Mr. Davies think you're in trouble. Which you were. So he rings me. Bing-bang-boom, meet Bob, he's your uncle. Oh, and um, you're welcome.

"Bob's your uncle" is an English expression for "everything will be fine."
Kelly: Jeff's been under a lot of stress.

Crowley: Wrong. He's the Devil. Horns, pitchforks, the whole nine.

The whole nine yards is an American colloquial phrase denoting something being done "all the way."
Lucifer: I grant a full pardon to... Charles Manson.
Charles Manson is an American criminal and was the leader of the Manson Family, most famous for orchestrating the brutal murder of actress Sharon Tate and her friends in 1969.
