â€œYouâ€™re wrong you know,â€ fake Dean says while Dean tries to leave. â€œAbout Supernatural. No offense, but Iâ€™m not sure you get what the storyâ€™s about. In real life, he sells stereo equipment. I fix copiers. Our lives suck. But to be Sam and Dean, to wake up every morning and save the world, to have a brother that would die for you, well who wouldnâ€™t want that?â€ Wow, Iâ€™m misting. What a great little speech. So unexpected and so dead on. Itâ€™s okay boys, Iâ€™m a computer programmer. We need a â€œlife sucks letâ€™s love on Supernaturalâ€ get together.
This certainly affects Dean somewhat. â€œMaybe youâ€™ve got a point.â€ Isnâ€™t a perspective change refreshing once in a while Dean? Dean mentions they donâ€™t make a bad team themselves. How do they know each other? Okay, you asked. They met online in a Supernatural chat room. "Must be nice to get out of your parents basement, make some friends," Dean says. Oh Dean, you and your generalizations. Fake Dean sets the record straight; they're more than friends. They grab hands. They're partners. Dean doesn't know what to say. "Oh.â€ Fake Sam puts his head on fake Dean's shoulder. â€œWell, howdi partners." I'm dying to know if Kripke himself has ever used that line at a party. Fake Sam says "Howdi" back and Dean leaves feeling awkward.
Speaking of awkward, Sam isn't getting off easy either. Becky is giving him a dramatic speech, complete with violins playing in the background. The gist, she's letting Sam down easy. â€œLook Sam, Iâ€™m not going to lie, we had undeniable chemistry.â€ Sam is trying to be respectful, but you know heâ€™s holding in a sigh of relief instead. â€œBut like a monkey on the sun it was too hot to live.â€ Then Sam gives her this â€œWhat???â€ look thatâ€™s probably the best startled reaction in an episode loaded with startled reactions. Itâ€™s hysterical!
It canâ€™t go on. She and Chuck have found each other. â€œMy yin to his proud yang. The heart wants what the heart wants.â€ Sam is looking at her like sheâ€™s nuts. She says sheâ€™s sorry, then Chuck says heâ€™s sorry, and Sam handles it like a pro. â€œWill you be alright,â€ Becky asks? Sam chooses to play along, and with one deep sigh answers, â€œHonestly, I donâ€™t know. Iâ€™ll just have to find a way to keep living I guess.â€ What a sport! Who knew Sam could be so facetious? â€œGod bless you,â€ Becky says.
â€œOkay,â€ Sam says, suddenly much better. â€œOh, hey Chuck, look if you really want to publish more books, I guess thatâ€™s okay with us.â€ â€œReally?â€ an excited Chuck asks. â€œNo, not really. We have guns and weâ€™ll find you.â€ Chuck suddenly agrees no more books. Heâ€™s got the backing of an archangel though. Whatâ€™s stopping him? Still, Samâ€™s line becomes the funniest line in this funny episode.
Just as Sam leaves Becky jumps in with a little tidbit that would have been so useful before now. She mentions the end of "Time Is On My Side" and goes into the whole bit about how Bela stole the colt and gave it to Lilith. Uh yeah, Sam knows that part all too well. Does he know she lied? She really gave it to a demon named Crowley. Now Sam's interested. He asks Chuck how come he didn't mention this. "She knows the books better than I do." Hmm, interesting, you think Kripke is confessing to something here? Naturally, Sam asks Becky for everything. For those that wonder why Becky would suddenly bring up the colt, Iâ€™m certain it has to do with Deanâ€™s outburst in the bar early in the episode when he told Chuck in front of Becky they were hunting for it.
Dean is waiting by the Impala smiling. This whole experience wasn't so bad after all. That's the way I always feel after a con, despite my reservations in going. Sam arrives and asks if heâ€™s okay. Yeah, he thinks heâ€™s good. Sam mentions he strangely got a lead on the colt. He'll tell him about it on the drive. They climb into the Impala and drive off in another great glory shot of parting.
Oh, but we get a bonus ending! Rob Benedict said this wasn't in the script, its just something the editor threw in. Kripke had about two pages of these quick lines and so they taped them realizing they wouldn't make the final cut. Maybe they were thinking gag reel. Apparently they did have some time to show a few. They're pure gold!
â€œLike a lot of authors I started writing because of love. Yeah, I had a huge crush on Nancy McKeon who played Jo in The Facts of Life. I must have written her 40 to 50 letters. She never wrote back.â€
â€œI donâ€™t think The Benders made flesh suits out of all their victims. Maybe like a couple of scarves.â€
â€œActually my favorite movie was Beaches. Hillary and CeCe were just so brave.â€ This part was actually the one part of the episode that got me rolling on the floor. Sam slowly emulates slitting his throat, while Dean pretends to blow his brains out with his two fingers. These guys MUST do comedy together when this show is done. Their timing is perfect! â€œSo strong,â€ Chuck finishes.
â€œThe way I look at it, itâ€™s not really jumping the shark if you never come back down.â€ Thereâ€™s a tagline! Must find a place to put it on the site.
Okay, thatâ€™s an episode. Next week is a major downer, so enjoy the light stuff while itâ€™s here.
