Andrea: Must be hard with your sense of direction: never able to find your way to a decent pick-up line.

Sam: "Kids are the best"? You don't even like kids.
Dean: I love kids.
Sam: Name three children that you even know.
Dean: [stumped] ...I'm thinking!

Andrea: Tell your friend his whole "Jerry Maguire" thing isn't going to work.

Dean (to Lucas): So, crayons is more your thing. That's cool; chicks dig artists.

Sam: See this church? I bet there's less than a thousand of those around here.
Dean: Oh, College Boy - thinks he's so smart!

Sam: What you said about Mom? You never told me that before.
Dean: It's no big deal. (pause) Oh, God. We're not gonna have to hug or anything, are we?

Dean: I just don't want to leave this town until I know the kid's okay.
Sam: Who are you, and what have you done with my brother?
Dean: Shut up.

Dean: If you're gonna be talkin' now, this is a very important phrase, so I want you to repeat it back to me one more time.
