SAM AND DEAN GO UNDERCOVER AT A SPA --- Sam and Dean investigate recent murders where the victims were hundreds of pounds lighter after their deaths. Suspecting witches, the two go undercover at a fancy day spa that all of the victims had attended for weight loss. While Sam is hired as a fitness instructor, Dean takes kitchen duty. After Dean swipes some tainted food and passes out, the guys realize someone is drugging the guests and literally sucking all of the fat out of them until they die.

  • Dean (to Sam and the deputy) - "Known fact: All women lie about their weight and age.”
  • Dean - “These aren’t supplements, they’re roofies."
    Sam: - “How do you know what roofies look like?"
    Dean - “How do you not know? You think I want to end up in a hotel bathtub with my kidney carved out in Chechnya?"
  • Dean - "I saved your hide back there. And I saved your hide at that church. And the hospital. I may not think things all the way through, but what I do I do because it’s the right thing. I’d do it again.”
    Sam - "And that is the problem. You think you’re my savior, my brother the hero, you swoop in and even when you mess up, you think what you’re doing is worth it because you’ve convinced yourself you’re doing more good than bad. But you’re not.”
  • Sam - “What is the upside of me being alive?"
    Dean - “Are you kidding me? You and me, fighting the good fight, together."
  • Sam - "Just once be honest with me. You didn’t save me for me. You did it for you. I was ready to die, I was ready. I should have died. But you, you didn’t want to be alone. And that’s what all of this boils down to, you can’t stand the thought of being alone.”
  • Sam - "I’ll give you this much, you are certainly willing to do the sacrificing as long as you’re not the one being hurt.”
  • Dean - “If the situation were reversed and I was dying, you’d do the same thing."
    Sam - "No, Dean, I wouldn’t. Same circumstances, I wouldn’t."
