Quotes

Sam: Don't you think you should take it a little easy on the nitrates?
Dean: Dude, if bacon's what kills me, then I win.
Mary: He's not gonna hurt you, Jack. He's gonna hurt me. Why do you think he brought you here? So that we would meet, so that we would talk. And then when he comes back, and you don't do what he wants. He's gonna kill me.
Gog: Which shall we kill first?

Magog: I will kill the pretty one.
Dean: It's like a furry diaper.
Castiel: Dean.
Gog: They are equally pretty.

Magog: The small one then-- Enough you. Embrace your beautiful death.
Sam: Was it the tablet that did this to you? Or...
Donatello: It didn't do anything to me. I translated the tablet, all of it. I saw the power of God, and it's all up here. And you want to take it from me.
Bobby: You look like her. Give or take a year of two.

Mary: What was she like?
Bobby: Mary Campbell was a complicated woman. Brave, but sad. Full of regret.
Mary: Let me guess, she made a bad demon deal?
Bobby: Opposite. She didn't make one. She lost the love of her life and never moved on.
Mary: And Dean and Sam were never born. Bobby, I made that deal. And it, I brought my boys a lot of pain. But... what happened here in your world. Sam and Dean stopped that war in mine.

Bobby: Then I'd say you made the right choice.
Bobby: Look, Mary, when this all started. When Lucifer and his demon army rose out of Hell, we thought the angels were on our side. Well, one by one they turned on us. He will too. It's just a matter of time.
Jack: I had to come back. Sam and Dean, they wouldn't run. They'd stay and fight. These angels, what they're doing, they're not gonna stop. As long as Michael's out there, this war won't be over.

Bobby: So what are you saying?

Jack: I have to kill him.
Castiel: Some people just can't be saved.

Dean: Yeah, but who gets to make that choice? You? What exactly gives you the right?

Castiel: Nothing. I took it. If I hadn't acted we would still be sitting around talking about what to do next, we would be wasting time. And it's time we don't have Dean. I told you, war is coming. War. And I did what soldiers do. Now we needed the spell to open the rift, and I got it. We need four major ingredients: The grace of an archangel. A fruit from a tree of life. The Seal of Solomon and the blood of a most holy man. We find those things, we can bring everybody home. And together we can beat Lucifer and Michael. this is the only way we win. This is the only way we survive. It's like you said Dean. Whatever it takes.

Trivia & References

Donatello: They're people, kinda of. Sometimes referred to as people; other times lands. You know how Bible's are -- too many damn translations.

Castiel: Gog and Magog, I'd heard rumors. But didn't think they were human.

As Donatello says, Gog and Magog are variously the names of nations, people, and entities in Judaic, Christian, and Islamic lore. They also appear in many legends across Europe and the Middle East. In Britain, they are depicted as giants who symbolize the conflict between the ancient Britons and the Trojan armies. Gog and Magog were said to have been defeated by Brutus of Troy and chained at the gate of his palace. They are often burned as effigies in pagan ceremonies, as a way of replacing and symbolizing sacrifice. This tale is represented in carvings at the Guildhall in London. Representations of these giants can also be found in the Royal Arcade in Melbourne, Australia.
Castiel: It's ancient Canaanite. They want to know if we brought armies.

Dean: Arby's?
Castiel: To fight them.

Arby's is a chain of sandwich shops, which have featured Supernatural in their social media.
Castiel: Dean. We have a problem. He isn't human, he appears to be a primitive beast formed of rock and sand.

Dean: That's a thing?
Castiel: Yeah. A very old thing. I thought they'd gone extinct during the flood.

The Flood refers to the flood myth which is a story that appears in many traditions, where a deity sends a flood to punish and cleanse civilization.
Bobby: Oh I remember. The day-trippers, right?
A day-tripper is a person who visits a destination just for a day and returns to their own home on the same day.
Dean: The Muppet professor attacked you? Why?
The "Muppet Professor was a puppet who featured in The Muppet Show called Dr Bunsen Honeydew.
Dean: All right. What else do we know besides all work and no play makes Donatello a homicidal boy?
The spell to open a rift requires four ingredients: The grace of an archangel, a fruit from a tree of life, the Seal of Solomon, and the blood of a most holy man. The "tree of life" is a mythological archetype that spans many religions and cultures. The Seal of Solomon was a signet ring which belonged to King Solomon which granted him the abilities to command demons and jinn, or to speak with animals.

Minutiae

Chad Rook, who played Zachariah (Apocalypse World), previously played Marshall Todd in 6.19 Mommy Dearest and Desmond in 8.09 Citizen Fang.
Michael Jonsson, who played Gog, previously played Yeager in 5.04 The End.
Zachariah of Apocalypse World attempting to manipulate Jack's mind can be seen as a reference to the original Zachariah, who used his powers to try and manipulate Sam and Dean 4.17 It's a Terrible Life to think they were normal people as well as showing Dean the future in which he continues to refuse becoming Michael's vessel in 5.04 The End.
The spell which Donatello gives Sam and Dean includes the spell Balthazar used to send them to the World Without Supernatural in 6.15 The French Mistake:
"Cleanse the holy altar with sacramental water, built on a bed of godsroot. Bless the altar in the tongue of God. Coat a bronze bowl with Oil of Abramelin. Combine dragon's blood, wolfsbane, angelica root. Crush in fine paste. Sprinkle with goofer dust [...] Mortar and deskle combine with dead sea brine, virgin lambs blood and the bone of a lesser saint [...] Mixture, paint three symbols surrounding the altar [...] Hearts of Gog and Magog."
