rate yourself and rake yourself, take all the courage you have left
The best part about this is that Dean is kind of annoyed at Cas, but he also can’t seem to hold back his smile.

HOW HAVE I NEVER SEEN THIS BEFORE
IT’S LIKE THE WHO’S ON FIRST OF SCIENCE JOKES
A monster, I’ve turned into a monster.
This bit of dialogue makes me angry, because it was written by Robbie Thompson to be said in reverse (Dean saying he wanted to read the books), and J2 decided to switch it when it was filmed.
It just completely cheapens the line and makes it all about making fun of Dean’s perceived levels of intelligence, when the man is canonically a damn genius who reads stuff like Vonnegut and the Odyssey in his spare time…
It’s moments like this that make me wonder sometimes at the wisdom of letting J2 have as much control over scenes as they appear to. They are great actors, but they occasionally get stuck in the mindset of their characters in a way that makes them view the characters in a specific way. Character bleed is a powerful thing. Sometimes it leads to beautiful moments (Dean keeping the trenchcoat), but other times stuff just…
Gets lost along the way.
IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE REVERSED??
This line stuck out for me too, but I let it pass because I took it to be brotherly teasing, you know? Like, the inherent ‘truth’ behind it all is that Sam DOESN’T usually read fiction, hence Dean’s surprise/mocking, so Sam replies mocking/defensive via a joke implying Dean is the one whose fictional reading matter is low/simplistic, when Sam knows full well that’s not the case, he’s just screwing around… if you know what I mean? It’s like, a variation on the old schoolyard ‘you’re stupid’ - ‘I know you are but what am I?’ banter. It’s Sam not wanting to let Dean’s implication - that Dean is superior because he reads fiction and Sam doesn’t - lie, so he counters with a similar mocking implication of his own.
So yeah, my take away is that it’s just brothers affectionately being little shits to each other :p
BUT - I agree the other way round would have been better.
#just look at him #so proud #fierce #undefeated #he may be broken #but he will never stop believing #Cas is the epitome of freedom #not a hammer #not a machine #just Cas #and he’ll stand up for that #even if it means certain death #even if they’ll tear him to pieces or let him bleed out on the floor #he will curse them with his dying breath and tell them to go and bite him #not a hero #but a rebel
This is the most accurate thing I’ve ever seen in my ENTIRE LIFE
