Acting in Unison
Oh my God, I love it when they talk at the same time!
After so many years together it's not surprising that Dean and Sam will often speak or sing or act in unison. It's really adorable. Below is a list of episodes where this happens with the time of the event included (in minutes and seconds – all times are approximate). Instances where outside forces cause the boys to act in unison (i.e. being thrown against the wall by a demon) are not included.
