Supernatural Season 3, Episode 11 may be a torturous episode for Sam, but it’s full of some of the best lines from the entire series. Here are the top seven (because I couldn’t narrow it down further).

Mystery Spot” is one of those fan-favorite episodes. It’s packed with hilarious moments and focuses more on Sam, despite it being Dean who is the one dying. This is all about teaching Sam how to let go of Dean because Dean cannot be saved from Hell. Supernatural Season 3, Episode 11 is a torturous episode, though.

This episode is the reason I dislike the Trickster so much, but there are still some of the best lines from the entire series. I couldn’t narrow it down to less than seven, so, strap in for some laugh-out-loud lines.

Okay, look. Yesterday was Tuesday, right? But today is Tuesday too.

More from Supernatural

Sam tries to explain what the issue is right now. At first, he pushes the idea of Dean dying as just a vivid dream. Considering this follows on from “Dream a Little Dream of Me,” that’s actually not surprising. However, he soon realizes that it’s not. He’s stuck in a loop but absolutely nobody knows. So saying this line just makes him sound crazy.

Look, I’m just saying that it’s crazy, you know, I mean, even for us crazy. Dingo-ate-my-baby crazy. Hey, maybe it was another of your psychic premonitions.

There were a few reasons I loved this line. One of them was for the “Dingo-ate-my-baby” part, which was a reference to a very real case from 1988 and it was the name of Oz’s band in Buffy the Vampire Slayer. However, it was also the mention of the psychic premonitions. Sam hadn’t had one since the death of Azazel, but there was no way it was forgotten.

Did it look cool, like in the movies?

Bless, Dean. All he wants to know is if his death looked cool. Nobody can look suave when they’re killed, even though the movies make it look so. I’m so glad after this that the writers were realistic with Sam pointing out exactly what happened. Poor Dean on the defensive afterward. But this line also pointed out how serious Dean wasn’t taking the situation at this point.

Right, you’re a mind reader. Cut it out, Sam. Sam… You think you’re being funny but you’re being really really childish! Sam Winchester wears makeup. Sam Winchester cries his way through sex. Sam Winchester keeps a ruler by the bed and every morning when he wakes up he—

This line had to make it, right? Sam knew everything that Dean was going to say. It was clear he’d been through this time and time again and this made it all the more sad. Sam was struggling to cope with reliving Dean’s death over and over again, completely powerless to stop it.

How long will it take you to realize? You can’t save your brother. No matter what.

And this was the moment that I seriously disliked the Trickster. He was doing all this to prove a point; that Dean can’t be saved. There were much better ways to show him something like this. Letting him go through his brother’s death a hundred times was not the way.

The way you two keep sacrificing yourselves for each other? Nothing good comes out of it. Just blood and pain. Dean’s your weakness. And the bad guys know it, too.

This line from the Trickster remains important to this day. In fact, Dean brings it up in Supernatural Season 4 too. They are each other’s weakness. Their love, their bond; everything works against them. Love shouldn’t be a weakness but when demons are after you, sometimes you do need to move on.

Let me tell you, whoever said Dean was the dysfunctional one has never seen you with a sharp object in your hands. Holy Full Metal Jacket.

When the Trickster finally stops the time loop, he comments on the way Sam handled himself. The reference to Full Metal Jacket is important, as it involves breaking someone down through boot camp training, which turned one of the marines crazy enough to kill.
