ANY-way, I can almost forgive all of that for what follows. Dean contemplates the life he'll never have for a little while longer out in the front seat of the Impala, and is genuinely surprised -- and pissed -- when Sam crawls into the passenger's seat beside him. "Get out of the car!" he orders immediately, but Sam's having none of it, insisting, "Whatever stupid thing you're about to do, you're not doing it alone, and that's that." With that, Sam raises a pair of schoolmarmish, brook-no-dissent eyebrows that are just this side of an actual bitchface. Hee. "I don't understand," Dean protests. "Why are you doing this?" Sam sighs and primly admits, "Because you're still my brother." Dean's eyes hood themselves a little bit in that teasing, uber-macho way they do whenever he's about to deliver the following line: "Bitch." Sam, adorable, and with full bitchface: "What're you calling me a bitch for?" Dean, equally adorable, if a little lost: "You're, uh, supposed to say, 'Jerk.'" "What?" Sam bites, supremely unamused. "Never mind," Dean mumbles, throwing the car into gear. And I am not ashamed to admit that bit made me laugh out loud. Repeatedly. For several minutes. Okay, maybe I'm a little ashamed.
Out on the road, there's a lengthy scene between the two wherein Sam finds the lamb's blood Dean needs to coat the silver knife, freaks, and attempts to call the proper psychiatric authorities until Dean snatches the product-placed Motorola Q from Sam's hand and whips it out the window. Heh. Padalecki's cute as hell during all of this with the squeamishness and the outrage and such, and considering what Sam pulls later in the abandoned chemical factory, it all adds to the ongoing set-up that pays off beautifully at that moment, but you don't really need to know anything else about it, do you? Thought not. "You might want to mention that it reportedly contains elements excised from the initial pilot script!" No, I don't want to do that, Raoul. Be quiet. "Well, what about the music?!" "Saturday Night Special" by Lynyrd Skynyrd? So not worth my time. "Oh! Okay! Never mind! Hee!"
