    Dean: Oh wait, I thought all those things ended with everybody living happily ever after.
    Sam: No, no, not the originals. See, the Grimm brothers' stuff was kinda like the folklore of its day, full of sex, violence, cannibalism... It got sanitized over the years, turned into Disney flicks and bedtime stories.
