Sam / Dean: What the hell?
AU Sam / AU Dean: What the heck?
Jo: So you want me to be on your side... against God?
Dean: I mean, we are better-looking.
Jack: I see that I've caused them pain. And it's clear that things have changed. Especially with... with Dean. Will he ever forgive me?
Castiel: You know, Dean, he... he feels things more acutely than any human I've ever known. So it's possible he could work through this. One day, he may explode and let it all out and breathe deeply and move on.
Ruby? The demon you were sexually intimate with?
Dean: "Sexually intimate"?
Ruby: Why do they call this place the Empty? This place is full. It's full of sorrow and despair playing over and over again, of angels and demons dreaming about their regrets. Forever.
AU Dean: They said lose the man bun, Samuel.
AU Sam: Look, hillbilly clothes are bad enough. I have to draw the line somewhere, and my hair... is sacred.
I gotta tell you Sammy, this Sam and Dean, you know, sure they're simple, but they've got this place of their own. There's no quarterly reports, there's no investor calls, there's just -- there's nothing to do but hunt monsters, drink beer, and watch porn.
AU Sam: Yeah.
They got it made.
Dean: Guys, I don't like it, alright? I mean, first Jo sets us up with the -- with killer demons, and now Ruby sends us to a place with hellhounds? These chicks want us dead. I don't trust any part of this.
God loved them so. His prize creations, until He banished them and all of mankind from the perfection of the Garden. And He hid it away.
Jack: I was told this place might change me somehow.
Perhaps. If you were the one meant to find it. You'll know soon enough.
Hey, Jack. How you doing?
Jack: I... I'm so sorry.
Dean: You what?
Jack: Why didn't I get it? I mean, my mother died, too. Why didn't I understand? It was my fault.
Castiel: His soul is back.
Please. Just please forgive me.
