Benny has been more of a brother to me this past year than you've ever been!
Dean knows it's not true.
Sam probably knows it's not true .
We know it's not true because Sam has demonstrated it many times:
You're my brother and I'd die for you
1.05 Bloody Mary
You and me. We’re all that’s left. So, if we’re gonna see this through, we’re gonna do it together.
Dean: But I'm gonna die. And you can't stop it. Sam: Watch me.
I just....I saw you die and it just came out of me, like a punch.
You were just a kid.
1.18 Something Wicked
Thanks for not giving up on me, Sammy.
2.01 In My Time of Dying
And I'm not all right. Not at all. But neither are you. That much I know.
2.02 Everybody Love a Clown
Yeah.. Well, I'm glad we do. And I'm glad you dug yourself out, Dean. Most people wouldn't have the strength, would have just stayed.
2.20 What is and What Should Never Be
You've saved my life over and over. I mean, you sacrifice everything for me. Don't you think I'd do the same for you? You're my big brother. There's nothing I wouldn't do for you. And I don't care what it takes, I'm gonna get you out of this. Guess I gotta save your ass for a change.
2.22 All Hell Breaks Loose Part II
... I've been following you around my entire life. I mean, I've been looking up to you since I was four, Dean. Studying you, trying to be just like my big brother. So yeah, I know you - better than anyone else in the entire world. And this is exactly how you act when you're terrified. And I mean, I can't blame you. It's just... It's just that I wish you'd drop the show and be my brother again. Cause...just cause.
3.07 Fresh Blood
Well, great minds think alike, Dean.
3.08 A Very Supernatural Christmas
Trickster:This obsession to save Dean? The way you two keep sacrificing yourselves for each other? Nothing good comes out of it. Just blood and pain. Dean's your weakness. And the bad guys know it, too. It's gonna be the death of you, Sam. Sometimes you just gotta let people go.
Sam: He's my brother.
3.11 Mystery Spot
3.16 No Rest For the Wicked
If you hurt him, I swear to God!
I don't want ten years. I don't want one year. I don't want candy! I want to trade places with Dean.
4.09 I Know What You DId Last Summer
Get in there and heal him. Miracle. Now.
4.16 On the Head of a Pin
6.12 Like a Virgin
You know me. You know why. I'm not leaving my brother alone out there.
6.22 The Man Who Knew Too Much
Let me defend him.
7.04 Defending Your Life
7.12 Time After Time
And finally. A cap from season 8 showing Sam's continuing love, worry and concern as he races to his brother's location.
8.05 Blood Brother
End Note: This was inspired by a gif set I saw on Tumblr (source). I was going to vid all these moments but it would have taken too long and I needed the therapy now, so I decided to play with caps instead. You might think between this post and the recent meta post I'm not keen on Benny and Amelia. It's not true at all. I like the introduction of them A LOT and I particularly love how each of them served to be a brother "substitute" while they were missing their other halves.
And I know Dean is the bestest big brother EVER (\o/ <3), but this is about Sam being an awesome brother too. I needed to do this. ;)
