“You know, sometimes, I really do not get you two.”
“What’s not to get?” Dean asks as Sam pauses the program they’re watching.
“You have battled almost every type of creature there is. You watch these,” Castiel gestures to the television set, “science fiction programs with such rapt attention that it as though you believe they could be real.”
Dean shrugs. “It could happen.” Castiel misses the true meaning behind his smug grin.
“Yet you refuse to believe God could love you.”
“I’m going for a beer, leave you two together for your chick flick moment.”
“Dean -- “ Castiel starts, but Dean stalks out, obviously not listening.
“It’s not that I don’t believe,” Sam speaks gently. “Dean’s another story, but I -- I used to believe. But it’s hard, Cas. When you see everything that happens in this world, when you lose everybody you love, it’s hard to keep believing that some omnipotent power could love you and let all that crap happen.”
“It may be hard,” Castiel sagely replies, “but it doesn’t mean it’s not real, He’s not real.”
“Oh, He’s real all right,” Dean snaps, returning, “and He’s a douchebag.” He cuts the TV back on, effectively silencing the conversation.
