"The place is clean." Sam tucks the EMF meter into a pocket. "Let's go."
Dean half-turns, then shakes his head. "Uh-uh. Hold on a minute."
With Sam squinting at him through the darkness, Dean prowls the furniture store, testing each mattress with a firm hand. Finally he chooses one and does a neat little jump, a twist, and lands on his back, arms and legs sprawled out.
"Well?" Sam asks.
"Like sleepin' on a cloud," Dean says. "I give this baby five stars. This is freakin' awesome."
"It's also a thousand dollars."
"Yeah," Dean replies. "Like I'm gonna buy it."
