That said, we all know what Dean's going to do, because this sort of wish-fulfillment storyline's has appeared in everything from It's A Wonderful Life to The Last Temptation Of Christ to goddamned Xena, Warrior Princess, as well as everywhere else before, in between, and to come ["But was in fact invented by Joss Whedon, I'm not sure if you knew that." -- Joe R], so long story short, Dean whispers, "I'm sorry" to the assembled apparitions, and plunges the knife into his stomach.
"Dean!" The one true Darling Sammy bellows into his brother's dazed face in the real world's abandoned C. & R. Jacob Chemical Company. Dean, suspended from the ceiling with a blood bag hooked up to his neck, slowly struggles into sludgy consciousness, and when he sees Sam standing there in front of him, he gets a small little grin on his ashen, wasted face and whispers, "Auntie Em!" Heh. "There's no place like home," Dean murmurs, continuing the reference while doing more damage to his heterosexual Neanderthal reputation than I ever thought possible. "Might I remind you," Raoul interjects, "that Darling Sammy suggested the dear boy was overcompensating as far back as that dreadfully boring episode set in the bed and breakfast?! Perhaps his supposed fascination with Barbara Eden -- that goddess of the small screen -- is simply more of the same!" Excellent point, my scaly friend, but I really must finish this recap. "Oh, by all means!" Though to be honest, after that last scene in Dean's Fantasyland, I really don't care much about the ending of the Monster Of The Week bit, so let's speed through it, shall we? Sam unhooks Dean from the blood bag and is halfway through cutting him down when The Frigging Genie attacks. Of course, because Sam suh-huuuuuucks at the hand-to-hand, The Frigging Genie quickly subdues his gargantuan ass and is about to send The Ginormotron spinning off into a Fantasyland built upon Sam's own deepest wish (my guess? To be entirely normal, which means that in his dream world, Sam'll be all of five-foot-eight. And that's just for starters) when El Deano manfully breaks free of his remaining bonds and stabs The Frigging Genie in the back with the tainted silver knife. Once they confirm The Frigging Genie's dead, Our Intrepid Heroes free the real-world Woozy Woman In Filthy And Bloodstained White, and it's off to yet another CHOMP-free commercial break for everyone involved.
