"Wha-the hell is that?" rasped Dean, eyeing the object in Sam's hand warily.

"It's a thermometer."

"Doesn't look like one."

"It's an old-fashioned mercury one. That's all the mom-and-pop drugstore here had. Open up."

"No." Dean's white-faced expression was mutinous. "I'm not sick."

"Oh, don't even start that crap with me."

Dean's mouth remained closed.

"You know, Dean, there's more than one way to take a temperature with these things." Sam raised a menacing eyebrow, waited a couple of beats to let the meaning sink in.

"You wouldn't!"

Sam hulked up his impressive shoulders. "Wanna bet?"

Dean opened his mouth.
