Rewatching 7-9 How to Win Friends and Influence Monsters

This is another episode that I look forward to watching in Season 7. I really enjoy Doped!Dean and all the reactions by Sam and Bobby.  I also love finding out more about what Sam and Dean used to do with Bobby when they were young - how he "tried to" teach them how to hunt (animals - not monsters), how Bobby has such good ears and is such a good marksman that he can shoot blind.

I love Bobby lecturing the boys in the car - Telling Sam not to worry so much about Dean, and telling Dean that he has to just live day by day and stop trying to find bigger meaning to his life.  These talks are even more special when we think of the fact that they are his last words to them. The talks also have to do with Dean and Sam's state of mind at this point and are in a way in continuation of the talk between Sam and Dean last episode.

It is also one of the most heart wrenching episodes as well, as it is where Bobby is shot.  I don't know how many times I've rewatched this, every time I can't help but sit on the edge of my chair, willing Bobby to move faster, and close the door of the van faster :'(

Well, I'd better start form the beginning.
