Dean: You were runnin' an errand for the Brits. You kept it from us. Cas almost died.

Mary: I-
Sam: A hunter got killed.
Mary: Think I don't know? I'm the one who burned his body, I'm the one who told his wife. I watch him die every night.

Dean: Good.
Mary: I'm doing this for you. I'm playing three decades of catch up here.

Dean: And we're not? How do you think this has been for us? We're your sons, and you've been gone. Our whole lives, you've been gone. You said that you needed time. No, you said you need space. So we gave you your space. But you didn't need just space. No, you needed space from us.
Mary: That's not true. Dean, I'm trying-
Dean: How 'bout for once you just try and be a mom?
Mary: I am your mother, but I am not "just a mom." And you are not a child.
Dean: I never was. So between us and them-
Mary: It's not like that.

Dean: Yeah, Mary, it is. And you made your choice. So there's the door.
Dean: All right, you know what? Screw it. I need a drink.

Sam: You...
Dean: No I need drinks. Plural. And this... whole peacemaker shtick that you've been running, first with Cas, now with Mom, it's getting old, man.
Sam: What's that supposed to mean?

Dean: You're always playing the middle, Sam. For once, why don't you pick a side?
Mr. Ketch: You're a killer, Dean Winchester, and so am I. And if we go too long without something to track or trap or punch or gut, well, things get a bit ugly. Don't they? The Men of Letters keep me busy. They point me in a direction and bang. Off to the races. It's not a bad life.
Mr. Ketch: Ten blood suckers, give or take.
Dean: 2 against 10. I like those odds.
Alpha Vampire: I'm old. I like living quietly. You've been making my life awfully noisy lately. You've killed so many of my children. I've seen your work. In England, I didn't get involved, because, well... it's England. But America... yes. America is my home. And it is time that you.. get... off... my... lawn.
Alpha Vampire: That gun can't save all of you.

Sam: Who said I was here to save all of us? My family and I, we kill vamps when they get out of line. And you've let us.
Alpha Vampire: I have many children, Sam. What's one, two, here or there?

Sam: Exactly. So? Let my mom and me go. We'll walk away, go back to the way things were, to the way things are supposed to be. Hunters and vampires, cops and robbers, a fair fight.
Alpha Vampire: Clever, clever boy.
Dean: When I thought something might've happened to you, nothing else mattered.

Mary: Dean, the things I said-

Dean: No, Mom, you were... It's not your job to make my lunch and... kiss me goodnight. It's- We're adults. You're gonna make your own choices, even if I don't like 'em. Even if I really, really don't like 'em. That's just something I'm gonna have to get used to. Okay, Mom?
Sam: Look, tonight was bad, no doubt, but the Alpha Vampire is dead. You're changing the world, and I wanna to be a part of it.

Mick: And your brother?

Sam: Give me some time.

Trivia & References

"The Raid" is a reference to the 2011 Indonesia martial arts film of the same name, about a police force sent to raid an apartment complex run by a criminal.
Mr. Ketch: Unpack, reshelve, and my SIG Sauer could use a good scrubbing.
SIG Sauer is a brand of gun which is popular with the military, especially Special Forces Units.
Sam: Yeah, um, you know, I dig the whole low-budget Mission: Impossible vibe, but I'm gonna head back.
Sam could be referring to the series of spy movies or to the TV series the movies are based on that aired from 1966-1973.
Dean: Sammy? Lucy! I...
"Lucy, I'm home!" is a famous line from the 1950s TV show I Love Lucy, often said by Lucy's husband.
Mr. Ketch: And whilst I understand that you're not feeling... warmly disposed to me, I wonder, what's your disposition to this incredibly rare, unspeakably expensive bottle of barrel proof Scotch?
The label on the red case that holds the bottle of Scotch that Mr. Ketch brought to Dean marks it as 33 year old "Glennlach" Scotch Whisky. Dean did the same thing when he first made inroads with Rufus Turner in 3.15 Time Is On My Side with a bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label Whisky.
Mick: When we find a nest, we don't just charge a la John Wayne, guns a-blazing. We wait, we watch.
John Wayne was an American actor famous for starring in Western movies.
Dean: I was with him when we heard this place was under attack. We drove like a bat out of hell.
"Like a bat out of hell" is a phrase meaning "very rapidly," made popular by the 1977 Meat Loaf song of the same name.


The bottom left corner of the article that Dean found states "Denver Police continue to investigate the homicide, Café Elta remains closed to the public." Café Elta was the name of the café where Rowena was recruiting witches from the Grand Coven into her own "Mega Coven" in 11.03 The Bad Seed. Elta is the first name of Danneel Ackles.
Kett Turton, who played Alton Morehead, previously played Max Jaffe in 1.04 Phantom Traveler.
Pierce Moncrieff is wearing a shirt for Guidry's Cajun Café, the same place Benny Lafitte worked at in 8.09 Citizen Fang.
Serena: Your father? The -- the Alpha? No, that's impossible. Our Intel has him in -- in Morocco. He's been there for at least a decade.

Sam: Wrong. I met him five years ago in Hoople, North Dakota.

Sam is referencing their meeting in 7.22 There Will Be Blood.
