“I don’t have a drinking problem ‘Cept when I can’t get a drink.”
― Tom Waits

(57) Josie Sands’ Letter

Dear Mom,

I know you aren’t here anymore. But wherever you are, I’m sure you can hear me. I’m in the right career to believe that your loved ones still keep an eye on you even from beyond the grave. I should know, I’ve studied enough ghost cases.

Sam Winchester’s Journal – Entry #56

I wish things would be simple for once. Just once.

When I left the bunker on my own to check out a murder involving a wife savagely killing her husband with a candlestick, I thought the investigation would only take me a couple of days, and that it was certainly a common case of demonic possession. I never imagined I would find myself peeking at a new page of the Men of Letters’ history, and at the same time, discovering Abaddon’s final plans for humanity.

Sam Winchester’s Journal - Entry #54

“Karma comes after everyone eventually. You can’t get away with screwing people over your whole life, I don’t care who you are. What goes around comes around. That’s how it works. Sooner or later the universe will serve you the revenge that you deserve.”

― Jessica Brody, The Karma Club

Sam Winchester’s Journal - Entry #53

“He looked so profoundly disappointed in me that I wondered for a moment if he was someone I knew.”

― Michael Chabon, Wonder Boys

Sam Winchester’s Journal – Entry #52

Sometimes life sends you signs. It can be a series of vague hints here and there that tell you you’re maybe heading in the wrong direction, signals that are so vague they are open to all kinds of interpretation and will mess with your mind until they’re melting your brain. Or it can also be manifestations thrown at your face by fate with the subtlety of a 300-pound defensive lineman trying to cross enemy lines.

Sam Winchester’s Journal – Entry #51

"There’s a story behind everything. How a picture got on a wall. How a scar got on your face. Sometimes the stories are simple, and sometimes they are hard and heartbreaking. But behind all your stories is always your mother’s story, because hers is where yours begin."

— Mitch AlbomFor One More Day

Sam Winchester’s Journal – Entry #50

I wish I could say it was a happy ending, but today’s hunt left a bad taste in my mouth.

After more than a year, mother and son are finally reunited, but at what cost: Mrs. Tran suffered hell, locked up like cattle, in one of Crowley’s storage rooms and Kevin is stuck at the door of Heaven because Metatron turned it into an “Angels Only” club.

Sam Winchester’s Journal – Entry #49

“Forget Batman: when I really thought about what I wanted to be when I grew up, I wanted to be my dad.”

— Paul Asay, God on the Streets of Gotham

Sam Winchester’s Journal – Entry #48

I’ve never really liked Valentine’s Day.

The fact that I’ve spent more time burning the remains of serial killers and helping desperate people get rid of the ghosts of clingy dead lovers, instead of going shopping for chocolates, might explain my dislike. My little adventure with Famine who turned me onto demon blood again and almost killed my brother didn’t really help either.
