They then proceed to chat -- again, some more -- and we learn that Gay Guy's got a grand total of fifteen ten-year deals going in Pike Creek. "Call them off!" Dean gruffly demands. "Or I'll carve my own loophole in your throat!" Gay Guy's response? "Oh, crap!" Dean, of course, completely misinterprets this reaction on Gay Guy's part, and is in the middle of sneering something devastatingly witty in reply when Crowley calls out a cheery "Hullo, boys!" from somewhere far too close to Dean's right shoulder. "Oh, crap!" Dean echoes, and he quickly darts around to Gay Guy's back to deploy him as a demonically enhanced human shield. Meanwhile, the camera's leapt across the room to take in the blurry back of Crowley's head as the demon gifts Sam and Becky with a few snide remarks regarding their unlikely wedding, and banter ensues until Crowley finally gets to the point: He's well aware of Gay Guy's unorthodox recruitment methods as of late, thank you very much, and he does not approve.

"We've been a little busy," Dean snipes. "Hunting Leviathan," Crowley too-graciously nods. "I know, and that's why I told my lads to stay clear of you meatheads." "Squash 'em all," Crowley encourages them, referring of course to the smarmy Mr. Roman and his myriad underlings. "I'll stay clear," he promises. Dean orders him to cancel Gay Guy's contracts first and, after Crowley cheerily complies, he shoves Gay Guy towards Crowley's waiting arms.
