"Memories of our lives, of our works and our deeds will continue in others." ― Rosa Parks

What are memories? You could call them thoughts, impressions or events you remember. It is recalling your past and remembrance of your youth. It is the ideas you have had and the emotion you connect to certain times. It is things that happened before the present times. A character, conduct as preserved in remembrance, history or tradition. Most of all it is feelings and connected images that make you cry, laugh, smile or be angry.

Safe House was a trip on the memory lane so it is only fitting the fan video of the week is the same. I must warn you. While watching the videos keep your tissues ready. They are very well made but very tough to watch emotionally. I really do miss Bobby and Rufus. And even though these videos focus on Bobby the spirit of Rufus is present like he was on the episode where the clips on both videos have mostly been taken. Also check out the minutiae. It is a real treat this week like the quotes. Everything was great in this episode.

Character information from Supernatural Wiki:



Robert Steven "Bobby" Singer - Jim Beaver
Collin MacKenchie (Young Bobby in 7.10)
Born August 12, 1950, died 2012 (killed by Dick Roman)

"Family don't end with blood, boy. Besides, you need me." – Bobby Singer, 3.16 No Rest for the Wicked

For me, the character was avuncular, paternal and crusty and at that point of the show I was sort of this young lieutenant in homicide, vomiting in the corner. The two people that were like father-figures and showing me the ropes were Bob (Singer) and Kim (Manners). Actually the character’s name originally was ‘Bobby Manners’. But when the name went through legal clearance they said that there was a real ‘Bobby Manners’ that lived in South Dakota. And if legal finds things like that, you have to change the name. So I made it ‘Singer.’ And Bob, to his eternal chagrin, wasn’t in that day. And when he came back he was all ‘what the hell is this?!’ At that point it was a done deal. And that’s how Bobby Singer got his name. – Eric Kripke, Paleyfest 2011
Bobby Singer was a hunter, close friend and father figure to Sam and Dean Winchester. Bobby grew up with an abusive father, who Bobby shot and killed when he was a teenager while protecting his mother. Bobby buried his father in the salvage yard.

A mechanic by trade, Bobby became a hunter after he had to kill his wife Karen Singer when she was possessed by a demon. Rufus Turner is the hunter who exorcised the demon and helped cover up Karen's death. It was Rufus who introduced Bobby to the world of the supernatural, and they hunted together for many years until a hunt went wrong in Omaha around 1993. They become estranged after this although they had contact and some reconciliation from 2008 until Rufus' death in 2011.



Rufus Turner - Steven Williams
Died 2011 (killed by the Khan worm possessed)

"Folks like us... there ain't no happy ending... I'm what you've got to look forward to if you survive. But you won't." – Rufus Turner, 3.15 Time Is on My Side

Rufus Turner is the hunter who helped Bobby Singer when his wife, Karen Singer, was possessed by a demon. Rufus exorcised the demon and helped cover up Karen's death. It's Rufus who introduces Bobby to the world of the supernatural, and they hunted together for many years until a hunt goes wrong in Omaha, and a woman important to Rufus dies. They become estranged after the incident. Fifteen years later, Rufus responds to Bobby's request for information on Bela and helps Dean locate her. He returns to active hunting after Lucifer rises and the Apocalypse begins, and he helps Bobby get his soul back. Rufus dies when Bobby, possessed by the Khan worm, stabs him. Bobby and the Winchesters bury him in a Jewish cemetery.



Losing Your Memory | Bobby Singer made by: doode25


Losing Your Memory by Ryan Star

Call all your friends
Tell them I'm never coming back
'Cause this is the end
Pretend that you want it, don't react

The damage is done
The police are coming too slow now
I would have died
I would have loved you all my life

You're losing your memory now
You're losing your memory now
You're losing your memory now
You're losing your memory now

Where have you gone?
The beach is so cold in winter here
And where have I gone?
I wake in Montauk with you near

Remember the day
'Cause this is what dreams should always be
I just want to stay
I just want to keep this dream in me

You're losing your memory now
You're losing your memory now
You're losing your memory now
You're losing your memory

Wake up, it's time, little girl, wake up
All the best of what we've done is yet to come
Wake up, it's time, little girl, wake up
Just remember who I am in the morning

You're losing your memory now
You're losing your memory now
You're losing your memory now
You're losing your memory

You're losing your memory now
You're losing your memory now
You're losing your memory now
You're losing your memory

thanks for everything • bobby, dean & sam [7x10] made by: sparksfly221


Quotes:

Dean: Well, Bobby and Rufus were definitely on a ghost hunt.
Sam: 'Grand Rapids, Michigan: possible ghost hunt with jackass.' That's all he wrote?

Bobby: Been burning the midnight oil the last couple of weeks. Up for days looking for ways to stop the Apocalypse, looking for anything. Sam and Dean are right in the middle of this thing. I'm worried about my boys, Rufus.
Rufus: Your boys? Hey, hey, alright. Okay, papa bear. But you know more than anyone, Bobby... Even if we find a way to keep the world spinnin', not everyone's gonna be on that bus ride home. Sacrifice, greater good, all that jazz.
Bobby: Yeah, I know.
Rufus: Oldest rule in hunting, Bobby. You can't save everyone.

Rufus: You saw something in the nest, didn't you? What'd you see, Bobby?
Bobby: My boys. Both of them. Both of them dead, and I saw... I don't know what the hell I saw.
Rufus: Forget the oldest rule, Bobby.
Bobby: You gettin' soft on me, Rufus?
Rufus: Yeah, soft this.
Bobby: Idjit.
Minutiae:

During the flashback scenes, both Bobby's Car and Bobby's flask can be seen.

At the end of the flashback in this episode, Bobby gets a bottle of Johnny Walker Blue from Rufus to satisfy their earlier bet, since Bobby was right: they weren't dealing with a baku. This bottle is found two years later by Sam and Jody Mills in 7.12 Time After Time. They wonder what bet Rufus and Bobby had made, but never find out.

Executive Consultant Robert Singer can be heard as the radio host introducing "Midnight Rider" as Sam and Dean drive off at the end of the episode.
