Welcome back to Supernatural's "Memorable Moments" series! For episode 13.08 "The Scorpion and the Frog", I once again put together a list of what I felt were the best and most memorable scenes. The list varies from episode to episode depending on what transpired.  I hope you enjoy it and share what your picks would be!

Best Broment

SPN 0147

Dean is cleaning his gun.   

SPN 0156

Sam comes into the room and notices Dean's diligence. "I think she's clean"

SPN 0159

Dean: Anything on Ketch?

Sam: No checked every hospital in a fifty mile radius..Nota

Dean: Crazy SOB, probably pulled the bullet out with his teeth.     

SPN 0164

Dean: What about Jack?

Sam: Talked to Cas, he's got nothing. It's like we've got to find something in the Lore or wait for Jack to make a mistake.     

SPN 0169

Dean: Yeah well mistakes are what I'm worried about.     

SPN 1892

Later at the end of the case...

Dean opens a beer for Sam and himself. 

SPN 1898

After placing the beers down, Dean asks Sam if he's ok.

Sam: Nah, not really. Not exactly the best day you know.    

SPN 1899

Dean: Well it's not the worst. We did save someone, that felt good.

Sam: Yeah it might...Back to square one with Jack.   

SPN 1900

Dean: We'll figure something else out. And if that doesn't work, we'll move on to the next and then what ever is next after that. We'll just keep working, because that's what we do.

SPN 1916

Sam: It feels really good to hear you talk like that again.

Dean: I'll drink to that.

They then clink their beers...     

SPN 1919

.... and somberly take a sip. 


Best Sam Moment

SPN 0334

Sam researches the "Nephilim Tracking Spell'   

SPN 0345

Dean: What's the verdict?

Sam: The spell, I think it checks out. 

SPN 0371

After a brief history of the spell's authenticity Sam expresses " Look what ever game Bart is playing, I don't want to play it but.."

Dean: Sam, you know that these things don't usually go our way.

Sam: It doesn't matter. Jack is out there in the world and he's alone and he's scared and he's dangerous and if this is our chance to find him, we have to take it.   

SPN 0374

Dean ponders what Sam has said and nods in agreement. 


Best Dean Moment

SPN 0718

Dean and Smash (Alice) break into Luther's barn. 

SPN 0728

While Dean sets up the summoning spell to have demon 'Grab' access the heavily warded barn.... 

SPN 0735

Smash (Alice) opens an energy drink. 

SPN 0758

Dean: Is that 'Nerve Damage' ? I use to live on that crap when I was a kid. It's like ten times the legal limit of caffeine right? I didn't know they made that anymore.         

SPN 0766

Smash informs Dean she got it from E-Bay and then hands him one. 

SPN 0783

Dean takes a moment to crack it open and take a sip. "Wow" 

SPN 0784

Smash takes satisfaction in Deans response.   


Best CGI/VFX scene

SPN 1689

Although a little gross ..... 

SPN 1690

...seeing Luther's head being sliced off and....

SPN 1697

...landing next to him was exceptional work. 

SPN 1817

I also have to give kudos to Bart bursting into flames and ....

SPN 1221

...capturing the poison dart flying past Smash and Dean.


Best Guest Actor Scene(s)

SPN 0247

David Cubitt as Crossroad Demon Barthamus (Bart). 

SPN 0264

I loved the diner scene, with the banter between Bart and the brothers.

Bart: I've been following your careers for a long time. You're a real pain in the pitchfork and the halo. Natural destructors. We have that in common you and I.

Dean: Yeah we're twinsies.

SPN 0296

Dean: See here's the thing, when a demon tells us to jump, we don't ask how high. We just ice their ass. 


Bart: How very Dean of you. (Bart stands up to leave) Sam, do me a favour. You're the smart one. Look into that. I'll be in touch.     


Cutest Moment

SPN 0256

Bart bought Dean a cherry pie.     

SPN 0328

After Bart left, Dean dives into the pie as Sam checks out the summoning spell.   

SPN 0331

Sam soon notices Dean's indulging and gives him a disapproving look. 


Best 'Awwww' Moment

SPN 0664

Before separating, Sam tells Dean "Don't get dead." Dean replies, "You too."


Best Teasing Moment

SPN 0809

To avoid further question from Dean, Smash asks ' How long does a demon summoning spell take?' 

SPN 0810

Dean gets her point and silently finishes the spell. 


Later when Smash is working on opening the safe...

SPN 1507

...Dean asks "How long does this ...." however Smash/Alice shushes him before he can finish. 


Funniest Moment

SPN 0859

I have to go with two scenes for this category.

First one.. Grab casting a spell on Dean to find the hidden safe... 

SPN 0862 turning Dean into a human tracking device. 

SPN 0963

They way Dean gets pulled by the spell had me giggling. I also loved Dean telling Grab he was going to kill him. 

SPN 1018

Second one.... Dean and Smash/Alice come to a secret door.   

SPN 1033

They realise that Dean must put his hand in the lion's mouth in order to open the door.

SPN 1159

After some hesitation, Dean prepares himself. 

SPN 1173

Once the hand is in, he realises there was nothing to it.....

SPN 1175

...that is until his hand get clamped down. 

SPN 1188

and a needle pricks his finger.....

SPN 1192

Once his blood activates the lock.....

SPN 1196

Dean's hand is freed. Dean's reaction to his wounded finger is priceless. 


Best MacGyver Moment

SPN 1381

Sam and Dean try to figure out how to get to the fault without getting hit by the poison darts. 

SPN 1400

Sam then notices the dolly and duct tape and comes up with a 'crazy idea'. 

SPN 1419

They duct tape Luther to a chair placed on the dolly. 

SPN 1441

They then send the immortal Luther down the hallway to trigger all the poison darts. 

SPN 1446

Sam and Dean are both impressed by how it worked. 


Best Camera Shots

SPN 0011

The Cambridge Museum Ceiling.   

SPN 0678

and Luther Shrike's home.
