Supernatural s02e20 Episode Script

What Is and What Should Never Be

Dad wants us to pick up where he left off: Saving people, hunting things.
The family business.
Goodnight, love.
Hey, Dean.
- Daddy.
Hey, buddy.
This is my girlfriend, Jessica.
So here's to Sam and his awesome LSAT victory.
- What would I do without you? - Crash and burn.
No! - I'm not gonna ditch the job.
- Screw the job.
I'm sick of the job anyway.
We don't get paid.
We don't get thanked.
The only thing we get's bad luck.
- Yeah? - There's a cop car outside.
You think it's for us? I don't know.
I don't see how.
We ditched the plates, the credit cards.
They're leaving.
False alarm.
See, nothing to worry about.
- Yeah, being fugitives - is a frigging dance party.
Hey, man chicks dig the danger vibe.
You got anything? Are you kidding? How could I? You got me sifting through, like, 50 square miles.
- That's where the victims disappeared.
- I got diddlysquat.
- What about you? - Just one thing.
I'm pretty sure of it now.
- We're hunting a jinn.
- A frigging genie? - You think these suckers can grant wishes? I don't know.
They're powerful enough.
But not exactly like Barbara Eden in harem pants.
Jinn have been feeding off people for centuries.
- They're all over the Koran.
My God.
Barbara Eden was hot, wasn't she? Way hotter than that Bewitched chick.
Are you even listening to me? Ahem.
So where do the jinns lair up? Ruins, usually.
The bigger, the better.
More places to hide.
I saw a place a few miles back.
I'm gonna go check it out.
Come pick me up first.
I'm sure it's nothing.
I just wanna take a look around.
- Dean? - Sam.
What's going on? - I don't know where I am.
What? What happened? - Well, the jinn, it attacked me.
The gin? - You're drinking gin? No, ass-hat, the jinn.
The scary creature, remember? It put its hand on me and then I woke up next to some hot chick.
Who, Carmen? - Who? Dean, you're drunk.
- You're drunk-dialing.
I'm not.
- Quit screwing around.
It's late.
All right, just get some sleep.
- I'll see you tomorrow, okay? - Wait, Sam.
Lawrence? What the hell? Honey? What are you doing up? Hey.
Carmen, uh, I just, uh-- - Oh, you can't sleep, huh? - Yeah.
Well, why don't you come back to bed and let's see if I can do anything to help? Sure.
- Yeah, in a minute.
You go ahead.
- Okay.
- Don't stay up too long.
- No.
Mom? What are you doing here? Are you all right? - I don't know.
- Well, come inside.
Carmen just called and said you just took off all of a sudden.
Carmen? Right.
Let me ask you a question.
When I was a kid, what did you always tell me when you put me to bed? - Dean, I don't understand-- - Just answer the question.
I told you angels were watching over you.
I don't believe it.
Oh! Honey, you're scaring me.
- Now, just tell me what's going on.
- You don't think that wishes can really--? What? - Forget it.
Oh! Forget it.
I'm just, uh-- I'm happy to see you, that's all.
You're beautiful.
What? Hey, when I was, uh-- When I was young, was there ever a fire here? No, never.
I thought there was.
I guess I was wrong.
Dad's on a softball team? Dad's softball team.
It's-- That's funny to me.
He loved that stupid team.
Dad's dead? And the thing that killed him was a-- A stroke.
He died in his sleep, you know that.
- That's great.
- Excuse me? That's great.
That he went peacefully, I mean, it-- It sure beats the alternative.
You've been drinking.
No, I haven't.
I'm just gonna call Carmen and have her come pick you up, okay? Wait.
Don't do-- Don't do that.
Don't do that.
- I wanna stay here.
- Why? Because I miss the place.
It's okay.
You go to bed, okay? Are you sure you're all right? I think so.
Get some rest.
I love you.
Me too.
Hey, it's me.
I can't come to the phone-- Well, I don't think I've seen you in my class before.
You kidding me? I love your lectures.
You-- You make learning fun.
So, what can I do for you? What can you tell me about jinns? A lot of Muslims believe the jinn are very real.
- They're mentioned in the Koran.
- Yeah, I know.
Get to the wish part.
- What about it? - Do you think they could really do it? Um Uh, no.
No, I don't think they can really do it.
You understand, these are mythic creatures.
No, I know.
I know.
But, uh, I mean, in the stories.
You know, say you had a wish, uh, but you never even said it out loud.
You know, like, that, uh That a loved one never died or that, uh, something awful never happened.
Supposedly, yes.
I mean, they have godlike power.
They can alter reality however they want.
Past, present, future.
Why would the jinn do it? What, self defense? Or maybe it's not really evil.
- Son.
- Hmm.
You been drinking? Everybody keeps asking me that, but, uh, no.
Who'd have thought, baby? We're civilians.
Hey! What's the matter with you? - Mm.
This is the best sandwich ever.
Thank you.
I tried to get ahold of Sam earlier.
Where--? Where is he? Oh, he'll be here soon.
I'm dying to see him.
Sweetie, uh, don't get me wrong.
I'm thrilled you're hanging out here all of a sudden.
But, uh, shouldn't you be at work? Work? At the garage.
The garage.
That's where I work.
I've got the day off.
Good thing.
The lawn looks like it could use some mowing.
- You wanna mow the lawn? - You kidding me? I'd love to mow the lawn.
Knock yourself out.
Think you'd never mowed a lawn in your life.
I don't believe it.
- Jessica.
- Good to see you too, Dean.
Can't breathe.
Sammy, look at you.
- Hey.
You're with Jessica.
That's-- I don't believe it.
- Yeah.
Where'd you guys come from? - We just flew in from California.
- California.
Stanford, huh? Law school, I bet.
I see you started off Mom's birthday with a bang, as usual.
Wait, Mom's birthday? That's today? Yeah.
Yeah, Dean, that's today.
That's why we're here.
Don't tell me you forgot.
Wow, that looks awesome.
All right.
To Mom.
Happy birthday.
- Happy birthday.
- Thank you.
To Mom.
I was really worried about you last night.
Oh, I'm-- I'm good.
I'm really good.
What do you say later we get you a cheeseburger? Oh, God, yes.
How did I end up with such a cool chick? I just got low standards.
All right, Jess and I actually have another surprise for Mom's birthday.
- Uh, you wanna tell them? - They're your family.
All right.
- What? Tell me what? Oh, my God! That's wonderful.
Thank you.
Thank you.
I'm so excited.
I just wish your dad was here.
Yeah, me too.
Jessica, let me see that ring.
Congratulations, Sammy.
- Thanks.
I'm really glad you're happy.
So, Dean, what was, uh? What was all that back at the restaurant? Oh, I thought I saw someone.
I'm sure it's nothing.
Well, I had a lovely birthday.
Thank you.
Good night.
Night, Mom.
Yeah, well, I'm beat.
- Ready to turn in? Sure.
- Good night, guys.
Good night.
Wait a second.
Wait a second.
Come on, it's not even 9:00 yet.
Let's go have a drink or something.
- Maybe another time.
- Come on, man.
Look at us.
Huh? We both have beautiful women on our arms.
You're engaged.
Let's go celebrate.
Guys, can you excuse us? I just wanna talk to my brother.
- Thanks.
Come on, Carmen.
So I needed to ask you Come here.
What? Okay.
What's gotten into you? - What do you mean? - I mean, this whole warm, fuzzy Ecstasy-trip thing.
I'm just happy for you, Sammy.
That's another thing.
Since when do you call me "Sammy"? Dean.
Come on.
We don't talk outside of holidays.
We don't? Well, we should.
I mean, you're my brother.
"You're my brother.
" You know, that's what you said when you snagged my ATM card.
Or when you bailed on my graduation.
Or when you hooked up with Rachel Nave.
Who? Uh, my prom date.
On prom night.
Yeah, that does kind of sound like me.
- Well, hey, man, I'm sorry about all that.
- No.
It's all right, man.
I just-- You know, I'm not asking you to change.
I just, uh I don't know.
I guess we just don't really have anything in common.
You know? - Whoa, whoa.
Yes, we do.
Yes, we do.
- What? - Hunting.
Hunting? I've never been hunting in my life, Dean.
Yeah, well, we should go sometime.
I think you'd be great at it.
Get some rest.
My favorite.
I guess you know me pretty well.
Afraid so.
You all right? Sammy and I, we don't get along.
Well, you don't really spend a lot of time together.
I mean, I just think you don't know each other all that well.
For the record, he doesn't know what he's missing.
I could fix things with Sam.
I can make it up to him.
To everyone.
What's gotten into you lately? This isn't gonna make a lick of sense to you.
But I kind of feel like I've been given a second chance.
And I don't wanna waste it.
You're right.
That doesn't make any sense.
You know, I get it.
Get what? Why you're the one.
Well-- Whatever's gotten into you, I like it.
Oh, come on.
Don't do this to me now.
I've gotta get ready for work.
You gotta work now? I told you.
I've got the night shifts on Thursday.
You work nights at the, uh? Hospital.
I'm dating a nurse.
That is so respectable.
The olive oil must have a purpose here.
I'll take the olive oil, and we'll just put a-- Just a touch of olive oil in.
That's all.
You can't make any mistakes with this machine.
Now, for liquid, I could use water but I'm gonna use a little spinach-- And today marks the anniversary of the crash of United Britannia Flight 424.
Indianapolis residents held a candlelight vigil in memory of the passengers and crew - No.
No, I stopped that crash.
- who lost their lives-- All of them.
Everyone that you saved.
Everyone Sammy and I saved.
They're all dead.
And there's this woman haunting me.
I don't know why.
I don't know what the connection is.
Not yet anyway.
It's like my old life is coming after me or something, you know? Like it doesn't want me to be happy.
Of course, I know what you'd say.
Well, not the you that played softball, but You'd say, "Go hunt the jinn.
Hey, it put you here, it could put you back.
Your happiness for all those people's lives.
No contest, right?" But why? Why is it my job to save these people? Why do I have to be some kind of hero? What about us, huh? What, Mom's not supposed to live her life? Sammy's not supposed to get married? Why do we have to sacrifice everything, Dad? It's-- Yeah.
That was so easy, I'm embarrassed for you.
Dean? What the hell are you doing here? I was looking for a beer.
In the china cabinet? - That's Mom's silver.
- Sam-- What, you broke into the house - to steal Mom's silver? - It's not what it looks like.
- I didn't have a choice.
- Oh, really? Why? What's so damn important that you gotta steal from your mother? - You want the truth? - Yeah.
Yeah, I do.
I owe somebody money.
- Who? - A bookie.
I lost big on a game.
- I gotta bring him the cash tonight.
- I can't believe we're even related.
- Sam, I'm sorry.
- Yeah.
I'm sorry that we don't get along.
And I wish to hell I could stay and fix it.
But I gotta do this.
People's lives depend on it.
What are you talking about, Dean? Nothing.
Forget it.
Just, uh Hey, tell Mom I love her.
I'll see you, Sammy.
- Get out.
- I'm going with you.
- You're gonna slow me down.
- Tough.
- You could get hurt.
- And so could you.
- Sam-- - Whatever stupid thing you're about to do you're not doing it alone.
And that's that.
I don't understand.
Why are you doing this? Because you're still my brother.
What are you calling me a bitch for? - You're supposed to say, "jerk.
" - What? Never mind.
What's in the bag? - Nothing.
- Nothing? - Yeah, nothing.
- You don't wanna do that.
- Oh, really? - What the hell is this? - Blood.
Yeah, I can see that it's blood, Dean.
What the hell is it doing in here? - You don't really wanna know.
- No, I do really wanna know.
- I really, really do.
- Well, you're gonna find out sooner or later.
I needed a silver knife dipped in lamb's blood.
You needed a silver knife dipped in lamb's blood why? Because there's this creature, a jinn, and I have to hunt it.
Um - Stop the car.
- I know how it sounds.
- Great.
Just stop the car.
- It's the truth, Sam.
There are things out in the dark.
There are bad things.
There are nightmare things.
People have to be saved.
If we don't save them, then nobody will.
I wanna help you, all right? I really do.
You're having some psychotic breakdown.
So I just-- - I wish.
What the hell was that? That was my phone.
I'm not going to a rubber room.
And we got work to do.
I was just trying to help.
- I don't want you to get hurt.
- What, you protect me? - Yeah.
- Oh, that's hilarious.
Why don't you just sit tight and try not to get us both killed? Where are we? - Well, we're not in Kansas anymore.
And you think something's in there? I know it is.
See? There's nothing here, Dean.
Look, Carmen's gotta be worried sick about you, Dean.
Come on, let's just go.
What the hell is that? Stay behind me.
Keep your mouth shut.
What the hell? It's her.
- Dean, what's going on? - Shh.
Where's my dad? I don't know.
Where's my dad? Sleep.
- This is real? You're not crazy? She didn't know where she was.
She thought she was with her father.
What if that's what the jinn does? It doesn't grant you a wish.
- It just makes you think it has.
- Look, man, that thing could come back all right? Dean.
What if I'm like her? What if I'm tied up in here someplace? What if all this is in my head? I mean, it could, you know Maybe it gives us some kind of supernatural acid - and then just feeds on us slow.
- No.
Dean, that doesn't make sense, okay? What if that's why she keeps appearing to me? She's not a spirit.
It's like more and more I'm catching flashes of reality.
I'm in here somewhere.
I'm catatonic.
And I'm taking all this stuff in.
But I can't snap out of it.
Look, you're right.
I was wrong.
You're not crazy.
But we-- We need to get out of here.
I don't think you're real.
Did you feel that? You feel this? I'm real.
This is not an acid trip.
I'm real and that thing's gonna come down here and kill us for real.
- Now, please.
- There's one way to be sure.
Whoa, whoa, whoa.
What are you doing? It's an old-wives' tale.
If you're about to die in a dream, you wake up.
- No.
That's crazy, all right? - Maybe.
- You're gonna kill yourself-- Okay.
- Or I'm gonna wake up.
- One or the other.
This isn't a dream, all right? I'm here, with you, now and you are about to kill yourself, Dean.
No, I'm pretty sure.
Like 90 percent sure.
But I'm sure enough.
Wait! Why'd you have to keep digging? Why couldn't you have left well enough alone? You were happy.
Put the knife down, honey.
You're not real.
None of it is.
It doesn't matter.
It's still better than anything you had.
- What? It's everything you want.
We're a family again.
Let's go home.
I'll die.
The jinn'll drain the life out of me in a couple of days.
But in here, with us, it'll feel like years like a lifetime.
I promise.
No more pain or fear.
Just love and comfort and safety.
Stay with us.
Get some rest.
You don't have to worry about Sam anymore.
You get to watch him live a full life.
We can have a future together.
Have our own family.
I love you, Dean.
Why is it our job to save everyone? Haven't we done enough? I'm begging you.
Give me the knife.
I'm sorry.
Dean! Dean.
Oh, God.
Come on.
Hey, wake up.
Wake up, damn it.
Oh, Auntie Em.
There's no place like home.
Thank God.
- I thought I lost you for a second.
- You almost did.
Let's get you down.
Sam! Come on! She's still alive.
I got you.
I got you.
We're gonna get you out of here, okay? I got you.
I got you.
Uh, thank you so much for the update.
That was the hospital.
The girl's been stabilized.
Good chance she's gonna pull through.
- That's good.
How about you? You all right? Ahem.
Yeah, I'm all right.
You should've seen it, Sam.
Our lives.
You were such a wussy.
So we didn't get along, then, huh? No.
- Yeah.
I thought it was supposed to be this perfect fantasy.
It wasn't.
It was just a wish.
Yeah, I wished for Mom to live.
If Mom never died, we never went hunting.
And you and me just never, uh - you know.
- Yeah.
Well, I'm glad we do.
And I'm glad you dug yourself out, Dean.
Most people wouldn't have had the strength.
They would have stayed.
Lucky me.
I gotta tell you, though, man.
You had Jess.
Mom was gonna have grandkids.
Yeah, but, Dean, it wasn't real.
I know.
But I wanted to stay.
I wanted to stay so bad.
I mean, ever since Dad all I can think about is how much this job's cost us.
We've lost so much.
We've sacrificed so much-- But people are alive because of you.
It's worth it, Dean.
It is.
It's not fair.
And, you know, it hurts like hell, but it's worth it.
