|EPISODE 506: I BELIEVE THE CHILDREN ARE OUR FUTURE
|Little Girl: So, some freak is gonna come into my room while I'm asleep and take my tooth? Sounds scary. No, thank you.|
|Sam: Dude, seriously? Still with the ham?
Dean: We don’t have a fridge.
|Sam: Dude, what the hell?
Dean: I had a hunch, I went with it.
Sam: You risked my ass on a hunch?
Dean: You’re fine. Besides now we know who’s turning this town into Willy Wonka’s worst nightmare.
Sam: The kid.
Dean: Yeah, everything Jesse believes comes true. He thinks the Tooth Fairy looks like Belushi, uh, joy buzzers really shock people, boom, that’s what happens.
Sam: Yeah, but convince him that joy buzzers don’t actually work and they go from killer machines back into crap toys.
Dean: Probably doesn’t even know he’s doing it. How is he doing it?
|Julia/Demon: (to Sam) Can't hurt you -- orders.
(to Dean) On the other hand, hurting you is encouraged.
|Jesse: Why are you telling me this?
Sam: Because I have to believe someone can make the right choice, even if I couldn't.
|Sam: So, what are we looking at, cursed objects?
Dean: Sounds good.
|Dean: Wait, you’re saying that Jesse’s gonna nuke the angels?
CastielWe cannot allow that to happen.
Sam: Wait. We’re the good guys, we don’t just kill children.
Castiel: A year ago, you would have done whatever it took to win this war.
Sam: Things change.
Dean: Okay, look. We are not going to kill him, alright? But we can’t leave Jesse here, either. We know that. So, we take him to Bobby’s. He’ll know what to do.
Castiel: You’ll kidnap him? What is going on this town, it’s what happens when this thing is happy. You cannot imagine what it will do if it’s angry. Besides, how will you hold him? With a thought he could be halfway around the world.
Dean: So we...
Sam: So we tell him the truth. You say Jesse’s destined to go darkside, fine. But he hasn’t yet. So we lay it all out for him – what he is, the apocalypse, everything – he might make the right choice.
Castiel: You didn’t. And I can’t take that chance (disappears)
|Dean: I thought sea monkeys were real.
Sam: They are. They’re brine shrimp.
Dean: No no no, I mean like in the ads, you know, like the sea monkey wife cooks the pot roast for the sea monkey husband and the sea monkey kids play with the dog in the sea monkey castle... real. I mean I was six, but I believed it.
Dean: My point is, maybe that’s the connection. The tooth fairy, the poprocks and coke, the joybuzzer that shocks you – they’re all lies that kids believe.
Sam: And now they’re coming true. Okay, so whatever’s doing this is reshaping reality. It has the powers of a god. Or... of a trickster.
Dean: Yeah. And the sense of humor of a nine-year-old.
Sam: Or you.
|Dean: You think Jesse’s gonna be okay?
Sam: I hope so.
Dean: You know we destroyed that kid’s life by telling him the truth.
Sam: We didn’t have a choice, Dean.
Dean: Yeah. You know, I’m starting to get why parents lie to their kids. You know, you want them to believe that the worst thing out there is mixing poprocks and coke. Protect them from the real evil. You want them going to bed feeling safe. If that means lying to them, so be it. The more I think about it... the more I wish Dad had lied to us.
Sam: Yeah, me too.
