Why Didn't Dean Realize Sam Wasn't Himself?

"Swap Meat" was generally a solid episode of Supernatural, funny in all the right places with just a little bit of drama and the on-going storyline of season 5. While watching it, my main problem was with Dean.

Once Gary, the nerdy teenage boy, swapped bodies with Sam, it should've taken Dean a matter of minutes to figure out something was wrong with his brother. Instead, it took forever. At first, I chalked it up to bad writing. Dean couldn't figure it out too soon because, if he did, there wouldn't be an episode, so it could've been an obvious plot device.

Your theory actually makes sense. After watching the episode, I could not stop thinking about why Dean did not notice that Sam wasn't Sam. I thought it had to do with the fact that in the past few seasons Sam has been changing. While Dean was in hell and after he was brought back, Sam took up some very unlikeable habits and continued to do so. Sam began to somewhat act like Dean. The only thing that would have really tipped off Dean was the sudden change in liking classic rock. However, the weird little phrases that Gary said would have also been a huge clue.
