Dean: You know what, long ago I thought we had it made. We saved the world, we got Cas back, we got Mom back. I mean it wasn't perfect. But still, we had 'em. But, now...

Sam: Now, they're all gone. And Mom, what they did to her. I just fell for their company line, man. I-I saw what they were doing and I-and I thought, hunters on that scale working together, how much good we can do. And once I was in it, I just followed, 'cause it was easy... Easier.
Dean: Easier than what?

Sam: Easier than leading.
Dean: Yup. Big, beautiful and dumb. I have had this thing for so long, been waiting for the perfect moment to use it.
Lady Bevell: You're lunatics. Action moving loving, cheese burger eating, moronic American lunatics.
Sam: Of course yeah, so my brother and I we, uh. No you know what. I called you here, because people, um, our people are being slaughtered and we're next. The British Men of Letters, they came here because they thought they could do out job better than we could. And they helped us with their flashy gear and their tech, most of you had the good sense to turn them down. They said they wanted the same thing we wanted, you know? A world free of monsters. That's not what they really wanted. They want control, they wanna live in a world where they can sit in some office and decide who gets to live and who gets to die. And they've killed people, they've killed innocent people, just because they got in the way. They think the ends justify the means, but we know better. We know hunting isn't just about killing. It's about doing what's right, even when it's hard. So we go by our gut, right? We play by our own rules. And that scares them, that's why they want us dead, because we're the one thing they can't control.

Roy: So what do you want from us?

Sam: I want you to follow me. Take the fight to them, to hit them before they hit us. We go in fast and hard and we fight. And we beat them down until they give up or until they're dead. Look they are well trained and well armed, some of us might not make it back. But we will win, we will take down the bad guys, because that's what we do. They're scared of us, yeah, good. They should be.
Dean: Oh, no. I'm not going. My leg busted up the way it is, I'm no good in a fight.

Sam: I'll take a jacked up Dean Winchester over any ten other hunters any day.
Dean: I saw you. You're ready for this. You show those sons of bitches who's boss.
Sam: What about you. What are you gonna do?

Dean: I'm gonna save Mom. Look if she's in there. If our real Mom is in there somewhere, then I'm gonna try and find her, bring her back.
Dean: You come back.

Sam: Promise.
Dean: Bitch.

Sam: Jerk.
Dean: I hate you... You lied to me. I was a kid. You promised you'd keep me safe, and then you make a deal with Azazel. Yeah, it saved Dad's life, but I'll tell you something else that happened, because on November 2, 1983 old Yellow-Eyes came waltzing into Sammy's room because of your deal. You left us. Alone. Because Dad was just a shell. His perfect wife, gone. Our perfect Mom, the perfect family, it was gone. And I-I had to be more than just a brother. I had to be a father, and I had to be a mother. To keep him safe. And that wasn't fair. And I couldn't do it. And you wanna know what that was like? They killed the girl that he loved, he got possessed by Lucifer. They tortured him in Hell and he lost his soul. His soul. All because of you. All of it was because of you... I hate you. I hate you, and I love you. 'Cause I can't-I can't help it, you're my Mom. And I understand. Because I have made deals to save the ones I love, more than once. I forgive you. I forgive you. For all of it. Everything. On the other side of this, we can start over, okay? You, me, Sam. We can get it right this time. But I need you to fight, right now. I need you to fight. I need-I need you to look at me, I need you to really look at me and see me. Mom, I need you to see me. Please.
Mr. Ketch: Mary? I knew you were a killer. You both are.
Dean: You're right.
Dr. Hess: Lucifer is back. Yes Sam, all thanks to your good friend Crowley. Not that it did him much good, Crowley's dead. And the Devil is out looking for it's son, following it's mother's footsteps, tracking her and your friend the angel. If Lucifer gets his hands on that child, they'll be unstoppable. You can't face that alone, you need us.

BMOL Elder: Listen to her boy.

Sam: Pass.
Mary: It's not okay. Since I've been back, I know I've been distant. Cold even. Leaving you, working with them. I was trying to make things right, just from a distance. Because, being here with you, was too hard. Seeing what I'd done, to you and to Sam. I-

Dean: Mom, what you did. The deal. Everything that's happened since has made us who we are, we kick ass. We save the world.
Mary: And Sam? I'm scared, what if he can't forgive me.

Sam: Mom. You don't have to be scared of me.
