- "Blues Are Turning Black" by Stephen Emil Dudas (Extreme Music)
- (playing in the bar as Lucifer and Castiel talk about Jack; also played in 10.20 Angel Heart)
Lucifer: I got plenty of gripes with the old man. His self-righteous narcissism, His 'my way or the highway' quirk. I gotta hand it to Him. He had a couple of great seconds when He banged out the universe. Guy had creative chops. And optimism. I'll give Him that. And despite His pissiness and His massive lack of irony, He did give mankind a good turn at bat and a chance to live in paradise. He ruled. He smote. He parted waters. Worshipped by creatures who made God in man's image. And then, He got disappointed. Or worse, bored. Picked up all His toys and... left. What was that?
Michael: Hitched a ride on your temporal lobe. Saw your world. That paradise you left behind? Believe I'll take up residence, lend my guiding hand.
Hey, hey, hey. I got an idea. Why don't you whale on Mary Winchester for a while? I'll go get a latte, okay? Or not.
Michael: Look at you. You claim to be a god in your world. Here, you're pathetic.
Hey, you try interdimensional travel sometime, pal. Definitely no frills. And just to be clear, I never claimed to be God. Or a god, okay? Where I come from, God is a paradox. He's everywhere, in your mind. In reality, He's nowhere. He left. I, on the other hand, am the real deal. I am everything humanity thinks I am and worse. That's who you're dealing with, pal. But, hey, congratulations to you for being king of the hill of this dead rock.
Kevin, what are you doing, getting mixed up with Michael?
Kevin: I don't have a choice. I'm a prophet, so I serve God, but there's no God to serve, so I serve the ranking deity, which is Michael, because I don't have a choice because I'm a prophet.
Lucifer: Idiot. Can't you see Michael is a monster? Pure evil?
Kevin: Okay, I'm confused. Aren't you Satan? Which would make you the evil monster? And Besides, Michael's taking me to paradise world so I can meet hot women.
I'm sorry. What?
Dean: Don't mess with us, okay? You already killed Mick. You tried to kill us. You messed our mom right up. We're already pissed off. So I wouldn't do that.
Do I look stupid to you?
Ketch: Is that a trick question?
Dean: Uhh! Oh! Whoo!
So, you're seriously gonna sit there with a straight face and tell us that you have an evil twin?
Lucifer: Okay, I get it, I get it. Custody of my son is a non-starter. But if you can please just shelve the eternal enemies thing for a second, we have a situation. And by 'we,' I mean everything alive. We're sorta... all gonna die.
Castiel: You'll forgive me if I'm a little on edge. The last time we were together, you killed me.
Lucifer: Well, last time we were together, you stabbed me.
Work this out with me. Hypothetically, um, let's say you're lying, and I help you find your son, and then you kill me again.
Lucifer: Cut me a little bit of slack. Please? That unhinged thing and that meth head Kevin Tran are about to bust through that door. God isn't here! It's just us. We're all we got, in case you hadn't noticed.
Castiel: Well, I-I-I have to talk to Sam and Dean.
Why, why, why, why, why, with all their second guessing and their whining? This is an emergency, Castiel, and all they're gonna wanna do is -- is put me back in the Cage.
Dean: You know, I gotta hand it to you. That paper trail you cooked up, pretty impressive. But my gut told me it was baloney. Looks like my gut was right. See, I've been in it with you, Arthur. I've seen your moves. We've gone toe-to-toe. And I saw that look in your eye when asked about our mom. So why don't you cut the crap?
Ketch: Actually, everything I told you is true. Well, except for the, uh, twin brother thing. I am separated from the British Men of Letters, lying low because they will kill me for desertion. I make a rather good living as a sort of soldier of fortune, deep underground, for a certain sort of clientele who appreciate my skill set. And I do use the name 'Alexander'.
Asmodeus: As I was sayin', I'm a collector. I like to be prepared. Lucifer could be useful. Castiel is a card to play if the Winchesters get out of line. And if there is any truth to the story that a new version of Michael is comin', I will definitely need that Nephilim.
Ketch: You really needn't worry.
