airdate: 26 March 2009

directed by James L. Conway

Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) are living very normal and separate lives. Dean is a corporate man who enjoys health drinks and listens to news radio vs. rock stations. He works at a company called Sandover Bridge & Iron Company alongside Sam (Jared Padalecki) who is in Tech Support. It seems as if the two do not know each other. However, after co-workers start committing suicide at an alarming rate, the two find themselves working side by side to solve the murders.

  • Sam: I just can't shake this feeling like I... like I don't belong here. You know what I mean? Like I should do something more than sit in a cubicle.
    Dean: I think most people who work in a cubicle feel that same way.
  • Zachariah: You should see my decoupage.
    Dean: Gross... no thank you.

  • Sam and Dean's last name -- Winchester -- is a brand of firearm, so in this alternate life, their new last names are similar: Smith and Wesson, referring to Smith & Wesson, the largest manufacturer of handguns in the United States. Smith & Wesson is known for the many types of ammunition it has introduced over the years and for its revolver expertise.
