SUPERNATURAL Thursdays – Most Quotable Lines

Supernatural Thursdays

Happy Thursday, SUPERNATURAL Fans! During this column of Supernatural Thursdays, your participation is going to be needed, and needed greatly. One of the fantastic things about the Supernatural fandom is how vocal we all are when asked our opinions, favorites, etc. This week I’m writing the most quotable Supernatural lines, and I know that I’m going to leave out several (hundred) that you guys will want to add, so be sure to let me know in the comments what are YOUR most quotable Supernatural lines!

(When I saw “most quotable” I mean those phrases that we as a fandom repeat daily, have printed on T-Shirts, mugs, etc.)

Who Picks the Music?


The Pilot alone has several lines that still make me chuckle when I watch. I mean, it gave us gems like this:

Sam: Yeah? When I told Dad I was scared of the thing in my closet, he gave me a .45.
Dean: Well, what was he supposed to do?
Sam: I was nine years old. He was supposed to say, “Don’t be afraid of the dark.”
Dean: Don’t be afraid of the dark? What, are you kidding me? Of course you should be afraid of the dark! You know what’s out there!

If that doesn’t make you laugh (or shake your head sadly if you’re familiar with the show and rewatching for the umpteenth time) then well… we have different ideas about what’s funny.

However, in addition to nine year old Sam being given a gun for the monster in his closet, we were also given what (dare I say it??) might be the most quoted line from the series (based on the number of items I’ve seen this on):

Dean: House rules, Sammy. Driver picks the music; shotgun shuts his cake hole.

And it was in that one statement where we as an audience were up and running with the Winchester brothers as they searched for “The Woman In White”.

Now… No Name Calling, Boys.


Sam: Jerk.
Dean: Bitch.

Even just typing that I laughed (and people looked at me funny, truth be told). The bond between Sam and Dean is obviously what Supernatural is all about, right? Well, even Sam and Dean can’t escape sibling squabbles. I can’t say we’ve heard this in recent seasons, but this exchange was something that the boys did regularly early on!

Uh… What Cas?


Our resident angel sometimes gets a little mixed up with human phrases. And I’m going to speak for the fandom as a group and say that it’s okay, because we love it! Here are some great Cas lines:

Castiel: (To Dean, about finding God) No, He’s not on any flatbread.

Dean: …So, odds are, you’re a dead man tomorrow?
Castiel: Yes.
Dean: Oh. Well, last night on earth, what, uh… what’re your plans?
Castiel: I just thought I’d sit here quietly.

Castiel: (Talking to Dean on his cell phone) This isn’t funny, Dean! The voice says I’m almost out of minutes.

Castiel’s voicemail: You have reached the voice mail of –
Castiel: I don’t understand. Why do you want me to say my name?

Castiel: It’s funnier in Enochian.

Castiel: Hey assbutt!

Castiel: I learned that from the pizza man…

Dean, Sometimes It’s Okay Not To Say Anything…


While he’s incredibly loveable and means well, sometimes Dean just decides to spout stuff off that he probably shouldn’t. But that’s why we adore him, right?

Dean: I hope your apple pie was freakin’ worth it!

Dean: Yeah, MySpace. What the hell is that? Seriously, is that, like, some sort of porn site?

Dean: My name is Dean Winchester. I am an Aquarius. I enjoy sunsets, long walks on the beach, and frisky women. And I did not kill anyone.

Agent Henriksen: I shot the sheriff..
Dean: But you didn’t shoot the deputy.

The Family Business

I figured I couldn’t do a “most quotable lines” without mentioning this one that is repeated in practically EVER episode (makes you wonder if Jensen would have said it differently if he had known how frequently it was going to be used!). Sam is still hurting after Jess and the fact that he and Dean haven’t found their dad; they’ve just been given coordinates to a camp site. Sam’s pouting, and Dean brings over John’s journal and gives us this:

Dean: I think he wants us to pick up where he left off, you know, saving people, hunting things. The family business.

I don’t know that any other line sums up the series more than this. If you can think of one, let me know!


Like I said in my intro, I know I forgot about a billion of them, so let me know what you think should have made the list! This is a relative topic, really, more about the individual’s favorite lines, and I look forward to hearing yours! Thanks for reading, hopefully this installment of Supernatural Thursday made you laugh! Stay tuned for next week!
