Hospital. Aftermath. Spectral Dean, who's apparently spent the entire commercial break screaming at his bed-bound father, now begins yelling at Puffy Sam, who's just returning from the junkyard. Oh, Spectral Dean. Why you gotta be so stoopid? "Sammy! Tell me you can freaking hear me -- there's something in the hospital! You gotta bring me back and we gotta hunt this thing!" Sammy, alas, is too preoccupied with his father's just-discovered betrayal to be of much psychic use to Spectral Dean at the moment, and merely storms over to the window to pout. "You're quiet," Shut Up Daddy begins. Bad move, Shut Up Daddy, for you've thus given Sam the perfect opening to become very, very loud indeed, just for the sake of contrariness and such. Sam spins around to glare at his father, then stomps over to the bed to slam down the knapsack of "hunting"-related provisions and rage, "That stuff from Bobby? You don't use it to ward off a demon; you use it to summon one!" And I am certain that Stanford-educated Sammy inserted that semi-colon himself while preparing this little speech in his head whilst on the way back from the junkyard. "You're planning on bringing the demon here, aren't you?" Screamin' Sam continues. "Having some stupid, macho showdown!" "Macho"? A "macho" showdown? Are "macho" showdowns between man and demon even possible? Especially when the man is Shut Up Daddy? I'm not sure how to react to any of that, especially given the fact that the word that sparked it all came from College Boy, there. I do think, though, that if anyone asked me, "Â¿QuiÃ©n es mÃ¡s macho: El Demonio Techo o CÃ¡llate PapÃ¬?" I'd have to go with the former. Anyway, where the hell was I before I started cobbling together bad Spanish on Babel Fish? Oh, yeah: The latest fight. Puffy Sam and Shut Up Daddy light into each other as Spectral Dean grows increasingly agitated with what he considers to be yet another pointless argument. I'm with ya, Spectral Dean. Sam at one point claims that his father is sacrificing Dean's life in favor of pursuing "the same, selfish obsession" that's consumed him since Sam was but a mere tot. Shut Up Daddy roars at this accusation, howling, "It's your obsession, too! This demon? Killed! Your! Mother! Killed your girlfriend! You begged me to be part of this hunt! If you killed that damn thing when you had the chance, none of this would have happened!" "I would have killed you too!" Sam protests mightily, and I find myself a tad worried that Jared Padalecki might irreparably strain his vocal cords, so zealous is he in putting all of this across correctly. In any event, Shut Up Daddy snaps back, "And your brother would be awake right now!" Dean hollers for both of them to cram it sideways, and when they ignore him again (like, duuuuuh, O Spectral One), he bellows once more while swinging in frustration at the water glass on Shut Up Daddy's bedside tray. And wouldn't you know it? The glass shatters on the floor, just as it would were this 1990's smash comedy-drama-fantasy-romance-thriller Ghost. And right before I pop an aneurysm about that during the silence that follows, Spectral Dean Keanus, "Dude. I full-on Swayze'd that mother!" And before I completely strip my internal gears by throwing an abrupt reverse to snicker at what I was just about to trash, Spectral Dean clutches at his spectral stomach and drops to his spectral knees on the floor, where he begins to short out like so many specters before him on this show.
