There But For The Grace Of God

Looking at the difference between my childhood and Max's I only saw one thing - Dad.

And so I told Dean we were lucky to have had him; that with a little more tequila and a little less demon hunting we would've had Max's childhood.

But now, all things considered, I know I was wrong.

Because it wasn't Dad that kept me on the straight and narrow, that literally kept the demons at bay. I now realize that the only real advantage I had over Max was Dean.

And nothing bad's gonna happen to me as long as he's around.
