sam & dean all hell breaks loose

Be Pissed?

In a previous post, I took a look at Dean's bonding with Tyler, the boy who had to keep himself entertained at Plucky Pennywhistle's Magical Menagerie while his mother worked. I pointed out that Dean's interactions with the boy were disingenuous, as he did not let on that he was identifying with the mother as much as with the child.

Now, I want to look at an earlier conversation in the episode: The conversation where Sam tells Dean how much he hated being left at PPMM as a child. Dean deflects by telling Sam that PPMM is supposed to be fun for kids: "It's not like I left you in jail." But Sam continues asserting that him being left there was neglectful (not Dean's fault, as Dean was just a kid, but still a real experience for Sam). What finally shuts Sam up is when Dean says this: "All right, don't have one of your episodes, okay?"
