The best lines from scripts of Supernatural, as said by Sam and Dean
The Road so Far.... (cue music) Carry on my wayward son, there'll be peace when you are done ....
Sam and Dean cruise down the highway and deal with their demons. Literally. Let's not forget Bobby and Garth, they get the job done, too. And we enjoy the lot of them.
So why is Supernatural , the TV series, so good? Why crave a new season? It succeeds because of its approach. The stories are well written, the lines come off glib, and the premise is fun. But most of all, it succeeds because the actors are great at being human amidst chaos, and the characters they portray can laugh at themselves. In fact, the show itself has a good sense of humor. Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles are a great team.
Their quotes are sometimes priceless.
One of my favorite lines is from Dean, a few episodes after being yanked back from hell in Season 04, Episode 3 In the Beginning , when he goes back in time and sees his mother at her young age.
He says, "Sammy, wherever you are... Mom is a babe. (pause)
I'm going to hell. (pause) again ." It was perfectly timed, funny.
On Halloween, after pulling razor blades from a victim of some ghoul, Sam finds Dean devouring a bad of candy, and say "Really? Even after..." and Dean just replies, "Dude. It's Halloween."
Sam tells Dean he really needs to update his cassette collection.
Sam: Well, for one, they're cassettes...
Dean: I'm batman!
Sam: Yeah. ...you're batman.
Sam to Bobby: You built a panic room?
Bobby: I had a weekend off.
Dean: Bobby, you're awesome.
Sam: I just had a weird dream.
Dean: Clowns or midgets?
Cass: They're well fortified. We will probably all die.
Dean walks in on Sam, who's watching a soap opera.
Sam: Hey.... (pause) what?
And the immortal line from Dean, after taking out a villain, "Dude, I full on swayzeed that mother..."
After finding a body, Dean: She could be faking.
Sam: What you wanna do, poke her with a stick?
Dean starts to move.
Sam: Dude, you're not gonna poke her with a stick.
Dean is always asking for Pie. "See if they have pie. Get me some pie ."
Old hunter: "This flamethrower should burn the changeling alive..."
Dean: "Well that sounds just horrible."
Kevin Tran, the 2 nd prophet: "The tablet was scribed by Metatron."
Sam: "What are saying? You mean some Transformer made the tablet?"
Dean: "That's Megatron."
Pause. Sam: "What?"
I love their aliases, and I'm old enough to know the bands. Angus and Young (AC/DC), Nigel Tufnel (Spinal Tap), Detectives Bachman and Turner (BTO), Page and Plant (Led Zep) Simmons and Frehley (Kiss), Dr, James Hetfield (Metallica). … the list goes on. They always make me smile.
The "reality show" style episode with Ghostfacers! (03:13), shot from the camera's point of view, was funny and well crafted. I also enjoyed the "yellow fever" episode (04:06) in which Dean became frightened of just about everything. His screams were hysterical.
One of my favorite episodes is Monster Movie (04:05) shot in black and white in 50s Monster Movie style, where the shape shifter emulates his favorite monsters from filmland.
The music also plays a tole. They do a great job of working in classic rock tracks just where we need them, from Kansas to Blue Oyster Cult, CCR to Rush. (See: Top Songs from the Supernatural TV Series)
It all fits so well, and adds an extra dimension to the TV series.
10 more seasons to come? Keep your fingers crossed, and your hex bag out the window. Or... something like that.
