Quotes

Sam: Luck? Is that really going to fix our whole problem?

Dean: Well it couldn't hurt. Man, I don't know how much more of this normal life crap i can take. Between the credit cards, the car trouble. The constant freaking heartburn!

Sam: Well, you know if you changed your diet...
Dean: What can i get for...four sixty?

Waitress: A slice of pie adn a cup of coffee?
Dean: Two forks? Dammit, I was hoping for a cheeseburger!
Sam: Dude you can't digest cheese anymore.

Dean: Due - lactate!
Sam: A pool hall that might make you lucky or kill you? It sounds like a demon or a witch!

Dean: Or it could be awesome! It's pool! The game of champions or kings! My game - hell, our game! How many honest to goodness great memories do we have hustling pool?

Sam: Yeah because we had to. To eat!
Dean: We're back, baby!
Dean: Cas.

Sam: Hey. Everything okay?
Jack: Hello.
Sam: Jack?

Castiel: It's really him.
Jack: Every day I wanted to come home, but I couldn't.

Dean: Why not?
Jack: Because if I don't stay hidden, if I use my powers, my grandfather, He'll know I'm back and He'll try and kill me. Again. He's afraid of me. And that's why we have to wait.
Castiel: Billie kept him hidden in the Empty until Chuck went off-world.
Jack: She let me out when it was safe.
Dean: Safe to what, eat a bunch of angel hearts?

Jack: Safe to do what I have to. The hearts, they were just the beginning. They made me strong, but I-I'm not strong enough. I... if I do exactly what she says, if I follow her plan, then I'll get stronger and... I'll be able to kill God.

Trivia & References

When Dean opened a case file in the previous spring on Jack, he used the FBI alias "C. Watts". Charlie Watts has been the drummer for the Rolling Stones since 1963. Castiel uses the alias "Agent Lizzo", Lizzo is an American singer-songwriter and rapper. Castiel's use of her name continues his trend of using modern popstars as aliases.

Minutiae

Lynda Boyd, who played Fortuna, previously played Jennifer O'Brien in 8.20 Pac-Man Fever.
Stephen Huszer, who played Pax, previously played Demon #1 in 10.03 Soul Survivor.
Rob Bruner, who played Leonard, previously played Mr. Witherspoon in 2.11 Playthings.
Continuity error: Castiel remembers Tamiel explaining about the angel swords and the Grigori. However, Tamiel told Sam this, not Castiel who was not even on the property when this conversation occurred.
Dean once again fails to get his pie after the Impala gets a flat tire.
Waitress: Forget it, it sounds nuts.

Dean:Nuts it good. Couple of Mr Freaking Peanuts here.

Mr Peanut was the top hat and monocle wearing peanut that was the mascot of the Plantars snack food company. Coincidentally, just before the episode aired, a teaser for an upcoming SuperBowl ad teased that Mr Peanut may die.
It's revealed that at some point the previous spring, Dean used one of his FBI aliases to open up a file on Jack, making him wanted by the FBI. The file states that there are multiple charges pending and Jack is to be considered armed and dangerous. Jack is listed as being 5'10", 140 pounds, with brown hair and blue eyes, no known aliases and an unknown date of birth.
