Guys, I just rewatched “Simon Said” from season 2, and it made me all nostalgic. For such a major character, the Impala doesn’t get nearly enough screen time (you know what, I will have to get a stopwatch to prove this), and while we still don’t see enough of her, the parts we do get are awesome.
Say what you will about Andy Gallagher, but he’s obviously a hapless stoner of excellent taste:
This is a cherry ride.
Man, the ‘67? Impala’s best year if you ask me. This is a serious classic.
And then Dean gives his baby away!
Yeah, can’t let a car like this one go.
Damn straight. Hey. Can I have it?
Oh man oh man! It kills me every time, even if it’s hilarious (BUT SO WRONG), when we see Andy driving her. Only Dean drives his baby! And don’t talk to me about Sam, because that was terrible. Sam shouldn’t drive anything cooler than a Volvo. Actually, he shouldn’t drive anything cooler than an AMC Gremlin.
Anyway, I’d normally be upset about someone stealing the Impala, but it’s so worth it because we see Dean all worried about her! And he apologizes! It’s so cute!
Thank god! Oh. I’m sorry, baby. I’ll never leave you again.
Also, when he finds her, that camera angles SO WE SEE INSIDE HER.
There are not enough shots of the Impala’s front seats without the boys in them, but here we can really see her gorgeous bench seats. We can really appreciate the way her soft, leather interior contrasts with her smooth, sleek, hard body.
Of course, then the episode forgets all about her and it becomes about Jedi twins or something. But at least we got all the good stuff earlier!
Also, I promise my season 7 reviews will be *way* more balanced. This wasn’t a review or recap so much as some squeeing because sometimes you just have to squee over all the pretty on this show.
Seriously, what a gorgeous car.
