A Skool field trip requires the children to spend the night, as they are traveling very far away. As Zim sees new areas and places of the world he never understood, he stays near Dib for emotional comfort, as Dib is very familiar to him.
mary follows dean back to the bunker as he bounces around showing off all the cool stuff. mom lookit we got books and cursed objects and magical weapons and honestly i really only know what about half of this stuff does so maybe don’t touch anything. god sat in that armchair btw. come see my room!!!
there’s an emotional moment where mary laments over the fact that dean and sam ended up becoming hunters even though that’s what she never wanted for them. but then castiel shows up on foot, frantic and windswept. before he can get a word out he and dean have to embrace emotionally and do that whole ‘i thought you were dead’ routine. mary butts in for a second to hug cas as well - turns out he’s been coming to visit her every thursday up in heaven to play bridge and keep her company and they’re actually very good friends. dean is ???? and mary mothers the heck out of both of them.
castiel explains about some lady abducting sam and dean, of course, panics. mary suggests a roadtrip search-and-rescue. she’s gonna get her baby back, yes siree. dean regretfully informs her that sam has his keys and a roadtrip is out of the question. castiel looks at him hopefully. ‘we could take my car,’ he suggests. dean whines all the way to the garage.
mary rides shotgun. cas introduces her to his rap cd collection. she digs it. dean picks at the upholstery and grumbles a lot.
