Welcome back to the "Memorable Moments" series for Supernatural episode 12.18, "The Memory Remains". Once again I put together a list of what I felt were the best and most memorable moments from this episode. The list varies from episode to episode depending on what has transpired.  I hope you enjoy it and share what your picks would be! 

Best Broment

SPN 1783

Sam and Dean return from the case. 

SPN 1797

As Dean brings Sam and himself a beer, he comments 'next time you hear me say our family is messed up, remind me we could be psycho goat people' 

Dean then asks Sam what their legacy would be. Would people remember what they've done.

SPN 1805

Sam says no but explains 'Guys like us, we're not exactly the type of people they write about in history books, you know. But the people we saved, they're our legacy. And they'll remember us and then I guess we'll eventually fade away too. That's fine, because we left the world better than we found it, you know.' 

SPN 1828

After a moment of contemplation Dean comments ' I wonder what's gonna happen to this place, after we're gone. You think some hunter will move in, keep fighting the fight? '

Dean then pulls out his pocket knife..

SPN 1849
