Unanswered questions I have

If Dean was getting food for both of them, Sam obviously expected him back, so why wasn't he more panicked?
15(10.4%)
Why did Gideon take the time to cast a spell that would kill Dean slowly instead of doing something to save himself?
17(11.8%)
Why did GM use separate keys for the door and ignition?
11(7.6%)
Why didn't Sam insist on driving when Dean was so messed up he forgot his own name?
28(19.4%)
Why did Sam think he needed to force one of the witches to translate the spell instead of just bringing the grimoire back to the hotel for Rowena to use?
20(13.9%)
Why did Dean know not to shoot Rowena, but he wasn't sure about Sam?
11(7.6%)
Does Dean actually remember what Rowena said to him?
22(15.3%)
Why can't Dean ride a bull every week?
19(13.2%)
Why didn't you ask the one question I was thinking of, but that's okay, I'll put it in the comments
1(0.7%)

Thinking about episodes in which Sam has to solve the case in order to save Dean, and Dean can't or won't help him, my favorite is:

Mystery Spot - Dean can't help because he can't remember; he's not stuck in the loop with Sam
35(38.5%)
Yellow Fever - Dean can't help because he's incapacitated by fear due to the curse
14(15.4%)
Time After Time - Dean can't help because he was sent back to 1944
9(9.9%)
Black - Dean won't help because he's a demon
8(8.8%)
Reichenbach - Dean won't help because he's a demon

The theme from Bewitched
10(17.2%)

'Ding Dong the Witch is Dead'

19(19.6%)
The Black Grimoire is going to have a spell that will be useful to Team Free Will
12(12.4%)
Dean would rather be unhappy and remember his past and his brother than be happy without all of that
22(22.7%)
Sam and Dean owe Rowena one, and she will collect on it
