Rewatch S6: Weekend At Bobby's (6.04)

Woot! Jensen's directorial debut! Let's check it out again...

Apparently the newscaster voice on Bobby's TV is Jensen's dad. I think that's cute. 

"Bite me"
"If that's your thing."

-It's the Bobby and Crowley show! Oh man, the dialogue in this episode is so good. I love it.

"Because I'm going dateline on your ass"
-The blacklight thing is brilliant! Did you know that you can get blacklight tattoos? I think that's so neat. I could get the Supernatural tattoo in ultraviolet ink....oh no, why did I think that thought....temptation growing....

"Ball's in your court, Robert, ten years of living, or ten years as Alpo."
- I think this is the first time that anyone has ever called Bobby Robert.

Ah, the Bobby montage! Balls! Haha...I love Bobby. 

Dean is eating in an episode that Jensen directed! He can't complain!

Bobby left a demon tied up in his basement for 24 hours because Dean asked him to do something...the love! Hahaha

Now, another question is: How did Bobby figure out the true body of THAT demon?!

Cute neighbour lady! Ooo, apparently Marcy Ward moved in next door 6 months ago! Should I put it in the timeline? She's super cute. Though, I think the good-looking Sheriff is better suited to him. 

The demon is teasing Bobby about his dead wife - that's never a good thing to do. But I like the continuity here - the way all demons just pick something that upsets you and harp on it to torture you.

"McCloud, Fergus McCloud - I swear - we call him Lucky the Leprachan behind his back."
"McCloud's Scottish, Einstein."

-Love this.

"Never heard of a vamp doing that, between drop a dime to the FBI"
*hangs up*
*other phone rings*
"Willis, FBI. No, not ME the FBI, the REAL FBI. How are you still alive?"

-Hahaha, love this too.

"Oh good, you're home, listen! You've gotta help me bury a body."
-Enter Rufus!! I love that entry. What's that saying  - a friend something something, a good friend helps you bury the body?

Rufus and Bobby show!! Man, I love the Rufus and Bobby show. Why did Rufus have to die? Now we only ever get one Rufus and Bobby show...it is a precious precious thing.

"Only time I ever saw one of these was in Japan"
- I want to know why Bobby was in Japan, and when, and what happened there! 

"For what it's worth, Sam and Dean are tracking a Lamia in Wisconsin"
"Get out! I thought they never left Greece."

- I like how Bobby can just say "Sam and Dean" and Rufus knows who he is talking about. Rufus has only hung out with Dean and Sam twice - well, Dean twice and Sam once...and hanging out with Sam wasn't in the best of circumstances. But everybody knows the Winchesters....and Rufus knows Bobby. There's really no room for confusion.

"I got contacts over there, I can make a few calls."
"I ain't asking for help."
"I ain't asking for your permission."

-Yay for friends! Even when they have unforgivable grudges against you. But seriously, knowing what little they tell us in And Then There Were None, it sheds new light on why Bobby would be reluctant to ask Rufus for help or accept Rufus' help when it's offered. Though, that being said, I think Bobby has just forgotten how to ask for help - it happens. We'll talk about that later.

"Ok fella, put the rulers away, zip up."
-Doesn't Dean use a similar line in 7x01 when Cas and Death are facing off? Hahaha

"Why did you send him outside?"
"Because I didn't think you wanted him in here."
"I don't! I've got a body in the basement"
"My point."
"Yeah, but I've got another body buried in the yard."
"Damn it."

-Did I mention that I love Sheriff Mills? I like how the body thing doesn't phase her - now that she knows. It's just an inconvenience. Also, I wonder just how many bodies are buried in and around Bobby's property. What would he do if the FBI really did show up? I guess Bobby has a plan for that...

"Did you use a bamboo dagger?"
"Yeah"
"Blessed by a Shinto priest?"
"I'm not an imbecile, Bobby."
"Did you stab it seven times."
"Five times."

-My favourite line is really "I'm not an imbecile, Bobby" - I love seasoned hunters. Hahaha...and even then, he still gets it wrong, but he argues about it!

Asian monster! Does that count has having an asian on TV? 

"I thought your chipper was broke."
"I just said that to get you over here."
"Well, I guess I could come over some night. Might be fun."
"I don't think so."
"Story of my life."

-Poor Bobby.

"How about Godzilla?"
"Put her down."
"So you just happened to have a bamboo dagger blessed by a Shinto priest laying around?"
"Woodchipper."
"Oh, okiedokie, woodshipper, that pretty much trumps...everything."

-I wonder what would happen if you put various Supernatural things through a woodchipper? It'd be hilarious to see Sam and Dean driving around America, towing a woodchipper.

"Listen uh, Bobby uh, thank you, I screwed up."
"Forget it. I figure, I still owe you more than you owe me."

-And later we get to find out why Bobby owes Rufus so much - saved him from his possessed wife, and then Bobby went and screwed something up that got someone Rufus loved killed.

"I need that ring."
"Oh, are you asking for my help, Bob? Bobby?"

-And another person calls Bobby by a different form of his name! I love it.

John P. Jones - is Dean's cellphone name. Interesting...

"Just hang on, I gotta take this. It's important."
"More important than Sam? Bobby?"

-Yes Dean...I know Sam is the most important thing in the world TO YOU, and it's endearing...but Rufus is currently being chased by a bunch of cops while he's holding the signet ring that might the key to Bobby getting his soul back...

"I hear you, son, it just ain't a good time."
"Yeah, ok, forget it, I mean, I'm baring my soul like a frickin' girl here, and you got stuff to do. That's fine. Seriously though, a little selfish - it's not all about you."
"Where's your brother."
"Outside"
"Get him."

-Oh Dean, you have poked the dragon!

"Sam, Dean, I love you like my own, I do, but sometimes...sometimes you two are the most whiniest, most self-absorbed sons of bitches I ever met. I'm selfish? ME? I do everything for you. EVERYTHING. You need lore scronged up, you need your asses pulled out of the fire, you need someone to bitch to about each other, you call me and I come through every damn time, and what do I get for it? Jack with a side of squat-"
D - "Bobby-"
"Do I sound like I'm done? Look, I know you got issues, god knows I know, but I got a newsflash for you - you ain't the centre of the universe. Now it may of slipped your mind, but Crowley owns my soul and the meter is running - and I will be damned if all I do is sit around and be damned! So how about you two sack up and help me for once!"
S - "Bobby, all you gotta do is ask."
D - "Anything you need, we're there."

- And Bobby turns into my mother. I love her, but she does not know how to ask for help. I think Bobby's forgotten too. I think he's used to Sam and Dean being these two young boys (and I do mean little boys, because he knew them back then) and he's forgotten that they've grown up to be good hunters and they CAN help him. He's got the whole single-parent-syndrome of wanting to be able to do everything himself and not burden the kids, only, that never really works out well.

"Need a favour"
"Luther Vandrose turn up? Tell him I'm a fan!"

-I'm probably spelling that wrong, but I liked that line...Sheriff Mills, please do not die in S7.

Gavin McCloud is good looking. That is all.

"Well you look like hammered crap."
"And you're a vision as always."

-Oh Crowley, never change.

"I thought, that when I got the corner office, it was all going to be rainbows and two-headed puppies - but if I'm being honest - it's been hell."
-Aww, rainbows and two-headed puppies! Cute!

"You know there's days, when I think that Lucifer's whole spike anything with black eyes plan was not bad. Hm. Feels good to get that off my chest, we should make this a thing."
-Oh please make it a thing! 

"I want my soul-back, eedjit - 'fraid not - but I'm surly and I got a beard, gimme..."
-If only it was as easy as being surly and possessing a beard.

"He ain't a chip. I was just using him to dig up dirt on you..."
"What did you tell him, son?"
"Everything."

-Bobby is teaming up with ghosts! I like it!! They should make that a thing.

Crowley was a tailor. That explains why he was so upset when the demons/hell-hounds ate his tailor back in S5 - professional kinship (and his love for fine suits.)

The reveal of Sam and Dean being in Scotland is awesome - firstly, because they are in Scotland, and secondly, because the castle in the highlands is so cheesy (I never once saw a castle when I was on the train through the highlands...I saw lots of cute little cottages though.)

"Did you really used to wear a skirt?"
"A kilt. I had athletic calves."

-Mmm, athletic calves....

"You demons, you think you're something special, but you're just spirits - twisted, perverted, evil one - but, end of the day, you're nothing but ghosts with an ego. We torch your bones, you go up in flames."
- I LOVE this addition to the mythology. It makes so much sense...because ghosts were human, and demons were human...so it makes sense that the way to kill them would be the same. Now, does it send them back to hell, or does it kill them completely? That's the next question I want answered. 

"Your bones for my soul, going once, going twice-"
"Bollocks!"

-A lovely callback to the opening montage of Bobby and his constant exclamation of 'balls!' :)

"You can go ahead and leave in the part about my legs."
-Yay! Free legs!

"Dean, he's a dick, but a deal's a deal."
"I don't need you to fight my battles for me, moose. Get bent."

-And the moose nickname for Jared was born (ETA: Not true, was born in S5). At least Jared has embraced it!
-It's interesting though, that Soulless!Sam would honour a deal, when he works solely on reason and logic. Logically, it makes more sense to kill Crowley while they have the upper hand.

Little car! I love how they are squashed together.

"Still, I know how much you love flying the friendly skies. I guess a 9 hour plane ride was no picnic. What'd you do, drink your way through it?"
"I was fine."
"Yeah, He white-knuckled his way through four puke-bags."
"At least I was sober. If some nutjob decided to try something, I was ready; I had a fork!"

-Dean loves Bobby so much that he took a transatlantic flight! Now, if that's not love, I don't know what is. I also like that Dean was sober for it...and you know, as funny as it is to think of Dean clutching a fork as his only weapon, I bet Dean could really fuck someone up with just a fork. Has anyone seen Murder In The First? Kevin Bacon kills someone with a SPOON!

"You've been cleaning up our messes for years Bobby, without you, I don't even want to think about where me and Sam would have ended up."
"Ok, then, let's role credits on this chickflick...."

-Aww...Bobby loves them too. I love the way Jim Beaver can get emotional in such a little subtle way. And for the record, without Bobby, they would be dead a hundred times over.

Alright, that's that episode. I guess next week is Jensen's second directorial outing...I'm sure it'll be just as good, if not better!

A fav episode of mine - love the Bobby show - he is so brilliant with both Rufus and Crowley - plus I love getting some outside POV on Sam and Dean.

I agree re: soullessSam's line about keeping the deal with Crowley - am pretty sure they put that in to tease us about what was up with Sam. i know I latched onto it as a possible clue!

As an aside - thought you'd be interested that Jim Michaels has just joined Twitter. It looks like Serge has an account too but hasn't tweeted yet. (I don't know if you are on Twitter - are you?)

Yes! I also remember latching onto that line and wondering if Sam was secretly working for Crowley or something! I was right, but Sam didn't actually know it then, so I was also sort of wrong...Supernatural has a lovely way of doing that to me.

I've clicked to follow Jim Michaels! Thanks for the heads-up! I'm on twitter under @kalixa, I don't talk on it much. Besides LJ, I'm not that great at social media. I mainly just read what other people have to say.

Your icon FTW!

I loved rewatching the first half of S6 and hope well they played the Sam line and building the tension and mystery around what the frak was going on.

I am fascinated to see what Jim will tweet!

Thanks! I came up with the idea for the icon, and had an icon maker make it for me (I have no photoshop skills...and actually, I have no photoshop period.) :)

Yes, I'm really enjoying the rewatch!

I'm interested to see what Jim will tweet too! He's really nice to talk to - even late at night in the rain when he's been working all day. :P

I'm pretty sure this was my favorite episode last season. I love the whole part where Bobby's giving Dean the directions about killing the lamia like a roast recipe and Sam goes crashing into the post with that crazy, slapstick look on his face. And the bit about the lamia ganking on cheeseheads. The motel they're staying in is just so Wisconsin with the Green Bay Packer colors and football pics on the wall. The dividing wall is a big bunch of blocks of cheese like fans wear on their heads. The room probably isn't even that over the top compared to motel reality near Green Bay. (I have to 'fess up to owning my own cheesehead hat...the part of Michigan I grew up in is full of obsessed Packer fans.) I wonder if the room decor was Jensen's input or the awesome art department on its own.

Haha, who knows re: the motel room, I know everything the art department does has to be approved by the director :P

It's such a great episode. I could have written down so many other lines to laugh at! :)

And yes! The roast recipe! I loved that.

I just burst out laughing at your suggestion for Sam and Dean to tow a woodchipper behind them wherever they go. Dean would think it's an insult to his baby but maybe if it was painted the same glossy black?

Besides answering questions about how to take care of something would be really easy.
"How will you take care of that Wendigo?"
"Woodchipper."

Cleaning would be a pain though.

Sidenote on the two brothers in a small car: I love when Sam hits the end button on his phone, the car honks.

Sep. 30th, 2011 04:21 pm (UTC)
Haha, yeah, I noticed the end-call/car-honk thing! Hilarious.

It'd also be PRETTY easy for the cops to find them if Sam and Dean were not only in a huge black '67 Impala, but were also towing a huge black woodchipper with it :P

I just got my SPN Season 6 companion book yesterday, and it explained that, at this point in the season, one of their possible plotlines was to have Sam already working with Crowley, so they had Sam 'uphold the deal' for that reason. Only to decide later that Sam wasn't working with Crowley.

So that leaves us with a weird line that doesn't fit. :)

Sep. 30th, 2011 04:19 pm (UTC)
Ah ha! That does explain it! I should order that book. I've got the other ones, but I usually like to wait with amazon orders until I'm buying more than $30 worth.

Thanks for letting me know :)

That's actually told in a new book- "Bobby Singer's Guide to Hunting". Interesting story. Probably has timeline problems up the wazoo, but interesting. A little heartbreaking, too.

Sep. 30th, 2011 11:14 pm (UTC)
Yes, someone else mentioned that too. I usually don't buy the books (because of the timeline problems), but maybe I'll have to check that one out.

Oh, I treat the books as fanfiction. Some of it's good, some of it's bad, some of it's horrible (and they can't stop using "Cass" instead of "Cas".) But that one is pretty good. I enjoyed it anyway. It's first person Bobby POV, which is kinda awesome.

(Can I steal the icon?)

Oct. 1st, 2011 05:53 am (UTC)
Sure, just credit the person who made it!

I kinda want to get John Winchester's Journal too - is that still out there? Maybe I'll make a birthday online-shopping trip of it. :)

Awesome, will do.

You in your timelining glory will have some issues with the journal, but you might like it.

I checked, and here's the amazon page for it

Hmm, I think Crowley called Sam 'moose' in S5, right before he and Dean go after Brady.

"It's interesting though, that Soulless!Sam would honour a deal, when he works solely on reason and logic. Logically, it makes more sense to kill Crowley while they have the upper hand." I agree, but Sam might want to keep working for Crowley because he sees it as getting info on stronger monsters and taking them out faster than he would without Crowley's info...or that's all I can come up with...
hells_half_acre
Oct. 1st, 2011 03:14 am (UTC)
Oh yeah, I think you are right about the "moose" thing.

At this point though, Sam didn't know that he was working for Crowley. Someone else tipped me off in the comments above though, and said that the writers still hadn't decided if Sam would know that he was working for Crowley or not, which is why the line is in there - they then decided that he wouldn't know, so now it's kind of erroneous.
