Recap: Supernatural S 05 E 12 Swap Meat
Season 5, Episode 12:

Swap Meat

Gary, a teenage nerd, meets Dean and Sam and conjures up a body-switching spell, exchanging bodies with Sam. Thrilled with his new looks, Gary takes advantage of his new appearance by hitting on women and drinking alcohol. He meets up with Dean, who at first does not realize Sam is not the real Sam. The two start working on a case and kill a ghost together, although "Sam" seems to try to take a chance to kill Dean, unknowingly to Dean. Meanwhile, Sam is stuck in Gary's body and has to deal with his strict parents and high school. He finds out that Gary owns a book with satanic symbols all over it and sets off for his locker at high school. After he has retrieved the book, he is shot by Gary's friend Trevor with a tranquilizer gun. He and another friend of Gary's, Nora, take him to a basement and reveal that they have made a pact with a demon, who offered them everything they wanted in exchange for Sam and Dean. Trevor conjures the demon, who possesses Nora and kills Trevor, whose demands irritate the demon. As the demon tastes Trevor's innards it declares they "taste like moron". The demon (still in the form of Nora) goes after Gary and tries to persuade him to meet Lucifer and "answer one little question" with yes, which would let the Devil into his true vessel. Gary refuses and, with Dean's help, exorcizes the demon. In the end, Gary reverses the spell and the boys take him home. Before leaving, Sam tells Gary that he should be glad to have a normal life and a family, but when he and Dean get into the car, he states that Gary's life "sucked ass," yet Dean counters by saying that perhaps they themselves just don't know the good things they're missing out on.
