Episode: “First Born”
Writer: Robbie Thompson

OK, so for the record I loved Supernatural “First Born.” Lots. I’m working on a recap/review. But until then, please enjoy this lengthy version of What They Said. Robbie Thompson’s dialogue was beyond beautiful. I pretty much transcribed the entire episode. But if I’m missing anything that you think should have been included, let me know in the comments.

Crowley (to Dean): “So…is that boudoir smile for me? At least buy me a drink first.”

Crowley (to Dean): “This bar is a bust. That waitress is trouble with a capital VD.”

Crowley: “But there is something that can kill a knight. The weapon that the archangels used to execute them — the First Blade.”
Dean: “Never heard of it. Can I kill you now?”

Crowley: “I’m here to see if there’s anything in the John Winchester Memorial Library that might lead us to the First Blade — to killing Abaddon.”
Dean: “You want to hunt…with me?”
Crowley: “I do love a good buddy comedy.”


Crowley: “What do those numbers in the margins mean?”
Dean: “None of your business.”
Crowley: “You’re gonna play hard to get? We have time for a montage?”


Crowley: “Fine. Let’s go find daddy’s man cave then, shall we?”


Cas: “It tastes like molecules.”
Sam: “What? What are you talking about?”
Cas: “When I was human. I’d eat constantly. It was pretty annoying.”
Sam: “Yeah, a lot of human things are pretty annoying.”
Cas: “But I enjoyed the taste of food. Particularly peanut butter with grape jelly. Not jam. Jam I found unsettling.”
Sam: “So what? Now you can’t taste PB and J?”
Cas: “No I-I taste every molecule.”
Sam: “Not the sum of its parts, huh?”
Cas: “It’s overwhelming. It’s disgusting. I miss you, PB&J.”


Sam: “You’re a terrible liar.”
Cas: “That is not true. I once deceived and betrayed both you and your brother.”

Crowley: “Is all this really necessary? I mean, I’ve been inside your brother. We’re practically family.”
Dean: “Listen to me. We are the furthest thing from family. You got that, dickbag?”


Crowley (to Dean): “So, what do you call this decor, anyway? Rustic obsessive? Paranoid deco?”


Sam: “Well they didn’t have a guinea pig. We do.”
Cas: “You have a guinea pig? Where?”
Sam: “Me, Cas. I’m the guinea pig.”
Cas: “Oh.”


Dean: “John Winchester ring a bell? I’m his son.”
Tara: “You Sam or Dean?”
Dean: “Dean.”
Tara: “Well, didn’t you grow up pretty.”


Dean: “Tara, listen, uh my associate…”
Crowley: “Friends, besties, actually.”
Dean: “Not helping.”
Tara: “Not caring.”


Tara (to Dean): “Well, hell. You are as handsome as John. And as dumb, too, if you’re looking for that old relic.”


Tara: “I couldn’t find one ingredient. Essence of Kraken.” Crowley: “Kraken? I got a warehouse of Kraken essence in Belize.”


Dean: “Abaddon? Way worse. I’ll deal with Crowley after. Trust me.”
Tara: “You sound just like your dad…when he said he’d call me.”


Tara: “Missouri. Figures.”
Crowley: “Would you care to join us?”
Tara: “Him? Anytime. You? Never.”


Crowley: “Wait.”
Dean: “What?”
Crowley: “I’m feeling something.”
Dean: “Oh, cramps?”


Dean: “Why don’t you just zap out of here?”
Crowley: “I’d never leave my domestic partner in crime.”
Dean: “Yeah, like your heart grew three sizes. You can’t zap out of here, can you?”

Cain: “So, what are the King of Hell and a Winchester doing at my house?”
Dean: “You know who we are?
Cain: “I’m retired. I’m not dead.”

Dean (after Cain shuts Crowley up): “Oh, you gotta teach me how to do that.”


Dean (to Cain): “Look I get it. We’re not here to get between you and the demonic AARP.”


Cain: “If your friend here could talk, he would tell you that I trained the Knights of Hell. I built that entire demonic order with my own hands, Abaddon included.”
Dean: “Well, that was information that I could have used five minutes ago.”


Cas: “Sam, may I ask you a question?”
Sam: “You just did.”
Cas: “Can I ask you another question?”
Sam: “Well, technically, you — yeah. Go ahead. What’s up?”


Crowley: “This is by far the dumbest idea you’ve ever had.”
Dean: “Yeah, well, it’s early.”
Crowley: “Oh, there’s nothing here. Shame. Let’s go.”
Dean: “Hey, sack up and start looking, okay? We don’t have that much time.”


Cain: “You exposed my home. You exposed me.”
Dean: “Well, boo hoo.”
Cain: “Brave but impulsive. You truly have lived up to your reputation.”
Dean: “I can’t say you’ve lived up to yours.”
Cain: “What can I say? I’m retired.”


Cas: “Why must the Winchesters run toward death?”
Sam: “Don’t stop.”
Cas: “Sam, when I was human, I died. And that showed me that life was precious and it must be protected at all costs. Even a life as pig-headed as a Winchester’s.”
Sam: “My life’s not worth any more than anyone else’s. Not yours. Or Dean’s…or Kevin’s. Please. Please, help me do one thing right. Keep going.”

Dean: “So this is your play? Corn? What am I not getting here? I mean, it’s not like you’re a coward.”
Cain: “Since when did the great Dean Winchester ask for help? Well, that doesn’t sound like the man I’ve read about on demon bathroom walls.”


Crowley: “Really? Isn’t it past your bedtime? You’re good. But I’m Crowley.”


Cas: “Sam. I want Gadreel to pay as much as you do. But nothing is worth losing you. You know, being human. It didn’t just change my view of food. It changed my view of you. I mean, I can relate now to how you feel.
Sam: “What are you talking about?”
Cas: “The only person who has screwed things up more consistently than you. Is me. And now I know what that guilt feels like. And I know what it means to feel sorry, Sam. I am sorry.”
Sam: “I know.”
Cas: “You know, old me. I would have just kept going. I would’ve just jammed that needle deeper until you died because the ends always justified the means. But what I went through. Well, that PB and J taught me that angels could change so. Who knows, maybe Winchesters can too.”


Dean: “You may be done killing but I’m not.”
Cain: “You never give up on anything, do you?”
Dean: “Never.”
Cain: “Well, I do.”


Crowley: “Well, I’ll stay as long as I can.
Dean: “Aren’t you a peach?”


Cain: “The mark can be transferred to someone who’s worthy.”
Dean: “You mean a killer like you.”
Cain: “Yes.”
Dean: “Can I use it to kill that bitch?”
Cain: “Yes. But you have to know that with the mark comes great burden. Some would call it a great cost.”
Dean: “Yeah, well spare me the warning label. You had me at ‘kill the bitch.”
Cain: “Good luck, Dean. You’re gonna need it.”
Dean: “Yeah, I get that a lot. Let’s dance.”


Sam: “You were right. You were right about everything. (Sam hugs Cas. FINALLY) Now’s the part where you hug back.”
Cas: “Oh. Right. Uh, sorry.”
Sam: “Ah, there you go.”


Crowley: “He was right, you know. You are worthy.”
Dean: “Oh, great. Now you’re gonna get all touchy-feely, too?”
Crowley: “Your problem, mate, is that nobody hates you more than you do. Believe me. I’ve tried.”


Crowley: “You plus demons equals fight night.”
Dean: “Tara died. Thanks to you.”
Crowley: “Omelets, broken eggs, etc.”
Dean (after he punches Crowley): “After Abaddon, you’re next!”
Crowley: “You don’t mean that. We’re having too much fun.”


Crowley: “It’s always something with you boys, isn’t it?”


Supernatural airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on the CW.

    Who knew Cas loves guinea pigs?

    SUPERNATURAL is a master’s class in witty dialogue.

    1. Tina Charles

      Agreed. Especially the last two weeks. So much Crowley snark it’s been awesome.

  2. Bluechester

    “That waitress is trouble with a capital VD”, had me laughing out loud. Again just quick, snarky, snappy dialogue throughoubthe entire episode.
