From Extra TV All About 'Baby': How Supernatural Pulled Off the Impala Episode.

Supernatural's Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki Discuss the Making of 'Baby' with Nerdist.


Supernatural’s third most important cast member after Dean and Sam Winchester (Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki) isn’t a person, it’s a car. Chuck Shurley said it best in the Season 5 finale: the 1967 Chevrolet Impala is “the most important object in pretty much the whole universe.” The car that was handed down from John Winchester to Dean has carried the wayward sons across the United States multiple times, survived any number of crashes and blemishes, and been a constant in the ever-changing lives of the brothers. The Impala took center stage in “Baby.”
"That was the busiest show I've done in eleven years," said Picture Car Coordinator Jeff Budnick. "We had all eight cars working....It was a lot of taking cars apart and putting them together, and it was busy work night and day for that episode. Blood everywhere! Inside the carpets? Just the cars I had to repair for that episode. I had to get five new headliners, [because] of the cameras ripping through the headliners. There's so much cameras in the car, and the blood on the carpets so we had to replace all the carpets, and the dash got cracked. So it was a lot of work to get them all back to normal."
“It was fun for me to play that part of Sam. Sam’s not often really caught off guard like that,” Padalecki says. “He’s been through a lot. He’s been to hell and to heaven, purgatory. He’s died, killed. He’s not often caught totally off guard, so that was a fun direction for me to go with him.”

EW
wrote How 'Baby Proved That Supernatural's Still At the Top of Its Game.

TV.com listed this episode as a FTW stating

It's hard to believe that it took Supernatural this long to make sweet, sweet love to the show's iconic '67 Impala, but the wait was well worth it. "Baby" was an ode to Dean's best girl, the monotony of hunting, and the wonderful weirdness of the Winchesters' life on the road. "Bitch" and "jerk" made a triumphant return, Jensen Ackles got to stop brooding and remind us all of his criminally underused slapstick talent, and Sam got to take his death peen out for an overdue spin. There was angst, classic rock singalongs, a shrieking head in Dean's beer cooler, and maybe, just maybe, Dean Winchester doing shorts. If you find yourself wondering how the hell that little WB show is still going strong after this long, do yourself a favor, watch "Baby," and find enlightenment.

But the best tribute was from Shaving People, Punting Things, the group that gave us the fantastic "Oh, Death" preview earlier this year. They created this "out take" for our enjoyment.
