"What're we doing here again?" Dean mutters.

"Looking for a ziriguth that preys on couples. We're undercover."

"In a group therapy session? Why not a dance club or bar?"

"You don't dance," Sam answers. "And the couples were having problems— it all leads here."

"Mr. Frehley, your turn."

"Hi, I'm Dean and I'm a gay dude."

"Dean!"

"What? You said…"

"This isn't AA, Mr. Frehley—it's Controllers and Codependents."

"Sammy—"

"Dean means that we struggle with respecting opposing viewpoints."

"Because you're a passive-aggressive killjoy."

"Dean!"

"Gentlemen, we offer private sessions..."

"Whatever, Sigmund."

"Dean."

"C'mon, honey, we're leaving."

"Knock it off…"

*cackles*

Dear god, Sam can't take him anywhere!

"Dean means that we struggle with respecting opposing viewpoints."
"Because you're a passive-aggressive killjoy."

And he knows just enough pseudo-psychology to be dangerous!

Seriously, this is why Ava had to do the distract the psychologist in that one episode where Sam needed to steal the file.

:D Can you believe that this was one of the most obvious things that occurred to me? If there were ever a place for choosing your words (or paying attention to the context), this would be it!

The piercing pithiness of "They're just doughnuts. They're not love" shows both insight and an impressive disavowal of sensitivity. ;)

rofl!
omg I wish my take at that prompt as that awesome :P
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on July 10th, 2007 07:34 am (UTC)
Hee! Thank you! The disaster that is Dean just blurting out the general vicinity of what he thinks is supposed to be happening was too funny to pass up.

I keep thinking of those isolated moments of "Uh-oh" on the series-- like in 'Shadows' when he's pissing off the guy in front of the store and just has to add, "Anyone ever tell you you've got a smile that lights up a room?" :0

LOL this is absolutely brilliant.

Hahaha! Thank you-- oh, the horror.

Sure, dude, let's share. :D

:D Yay! The runaway-Dean-mouth never fails to crack me up. :0

Gretagretazreta on July 10th, 2007 10:26 am (UTC)
ahahah awesome.
This reminds me of the skeery clown episode, the one when he goes in and the blind guy is tossing knives and Dean asks him if he's seen the boss, and then the blind guy gets mad, and then the midget comes in and asks what the problem is, and Dean says "Just a little misunderstanding"... and Sam's just laughing his head off.
I totally see this as Dean's revenge!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on July 10th, 2007 04:19 pm (UTC)
Haha! Sometimes Dean doesn't actually do it on purpose, but it's usually just as bad anyway. :0

Brain-to-mouth-filter, dude-- filter!
zora_souritzora_sourit on July 10th, 2007 11:14 am (UTC)

it's Controllers and Codependents
LOL, that was awesome!
And so very Dean and Sam! *snickers*
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on July 10th, 2007 04:20 pm (UTC)
:D I thought there was a certain painful irony in the class that Sam had brought them to. Not their actual problem, but something they argue about as being their problem. :0

Oh, yes, it is *exactly* how Dean would be!! *adores*
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on July 10th, 2007 04:22 pm (UTC)
Hee! And not even on purpose-- he'd just be blurting from right to left, thinking he's totally in the groove of the moment. Right until he loses patience.... ;)

*giggles helplessly* OH DEAN. Seriously, Sam. Muzzle and a leash? Works wonders. *nods*
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on July 10th, 2007 05:39 pm (UTC)
Haha! As long as the muzzle keeps Dean from opening his mouth... ;)

Should probably take that foot out first, though. :0
cindy: the dean show - sam sez tsuki_no_bara on July 10th, 2007 05:22 pm (UTC)
there is no filter on that boy's brain. and he no doubt thinks he's being helpful and cooperative. i'd feel bad for sam but come on, taking dean to couples counseling is just asking for trouble. and also? really funny. "hi, i'm dean and i'm a gay dude." heeee.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on July 10th, 2007 05:42 pm (UTC)
and he no doubt thinks he's being helpful and cooperative.
That's the worst part-- sometimes he does it for the snark, but other times he has no idea that he's saying completely the wrong thing.

really funny. "hi, i'm dean and i'm a gay dude." heeee.
:D It's the "dude" part of it that really shows Dean's cluelessness there, I think. Plus, he says it like it's a problem in and of itself, which strikes me as totally Dean. And not paying attention. ;)

Oh poor Sammy! He has to put up with so much from his big brother. But really, after all these years, Sam should know better. I absolutely love this! It is so totally Dean!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on July 10th, 2007 05:46 pm (UTC)
after all these years, Sam should know better.
That's the worst part. Oh, that scene in "The Usual Suspects" where Dean keeps blurting out the weird and off-topic questions and Sam's face keeps changing expressions:

Sam: *Deep sympathy*
Dean: *Freaky non-insurance-related question to grieving widow*
Sam: *Dude, WTF-- shut up! face* *Deep puppy-laden sympathy~~~*

Oh my god, that was so hilarious. I love how much you're able to accomplish in so short a text - hilarity, awesome characterization, and an excellent idea for an episode next season. You rock.

Seriously, they should totally do that for an episode. I mean, they make all sorts of jokes about it throughout the show anyway... And then they'd get so much wicked fic to read from it! ;)

Sometimes I really feel in all sincerity that certain fanfic authors should be hired to write for the shows they write about already. Really.
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on July 12th, 2007 05:07 am (UTC)
:D Thank you! It's funny, but I've found that conversation-heavy drabbles actually convey more content sometimes than simply prose ones. Occasionally I write this kind and keep thinking I must be out of words by now, but in fact still have quite a few left. The crossover one for SPN/L&O:CI was like that-- lots of dialogue, and it makes the scene seem less brief. :)

I appreciate your last compliment very much. What a sweet thing to say! ♥

Hee! Thank you, Rinne. :) I have such an impression here of Dean leaving and still not knowing why Sam's all mad at him-- that would be so typical!

"C'mon, honey, we're leaving."

BWAH!!!!
The Coalition For Disturbing Metaphors: Sam & Dean Genhalfshellvenus on July 12th, 2007 05:10 am (UTC)
C'mon, honey, we're leaving."
:D Might as well, since he screwed up the whole plan in under five minutes.

And still thinks he's working that "undercover image" all the same. ;)
