Best Encounter in a Back Alley
No, Sammy tripping out with the dregs of humanity in "The Born-Again Identity" is not on the list. That’s “most pathetic.”
The winner comes an episode later, in “Party On, Garth.” What happens when you don’t know Japanese and need something translated? Well, having shady back alley encounters with a steakhouse chef in the back of a Japanese restaurant works.
I don’t know what I enjoyed more, the setup, or the fact that this chef was completely cool with all the things he was being asked. By two hungover white guys drinking coffee at night. Translating the Shojo legend was one thing, but going with the flow like everything’s normal when Dean shows up later for a sword blessing, complete with spring water in a bottle to simulate a running stream? I’m thinking this guy is the most awesome confidant Sam and Dean have found yet.
