Recap

Sam wakes up to find a vessel box lying next to him on the bed. He tosses it into the dirty clothes and takes off with Sock for work. However, he starts picking up static electricity and starts worrying his newfound career. As they drive to work, the box appears in their back seat. They try to leave it in the woods and run away, driving to the Work Bench. They get out… only for Sam to trip over it on the ground...

Episode Quotes
Sock: Morning, Linda Blair.
Sam: That was hilarious.
Sock: Can you do that?
Sam: What?
Sock: Can you turn your head all the way around?
Sam: Sock, I’m not possessed.
Sock: Yeah, okay.
Sam: My parents sold my soul to the Devil and I’m a bounty for Hell. Totally different.
Sock: Have you even tried to turn your head all the way around?
Sam: Yeah, it totally doesn’t work.

Sam: I’m good at stuff, okay. Other stuff. Right?
Sock: Yeah, you do rock the house at Guitar Hero.
Sam: That’s what I’m talking about.

Sock: Hey, where’s the truck going?
Sam: Delaware.
Sock: I approve, good.
Ben: You’re an idiot, Sam. And the Devil’s going to kill you when he finds out.
Sam: Well, I hope he won’t find out.
Ben: Well, isn’t he all-knowing and everything?
Sam: Ben, can you find Delaware on a map?
Ben: Well, you make an excellent point.

Ted: You have broken the most cardinal rule here at the Bench. A bloodied customer is not a happy customer.
Sam: Ted, it was an accident. I’m really really sorry.
Ted: The question is, what is the appropriate punishment?
Sock: Well, if you wanted to be really mean, you could make us work here, wear ugly blue aprons day and night, that would suck.

Sam: What’s with Jessica Alba?
Sock: She thinks she’s too good for me.

The Devil: Isn’t Nature magnificent? Beautiful, angry, soothing, merciless. It’s perfection, don’t you think? Gotta give… whatshisface credit.

Sam: Yeah, you know, I’ve been thinking about that. I don’t think I’m the guy who should be taking on the forces of evil.
The Devil: No?
Sam: I know you own my soul and all, but I think the world would be better off if I worked for you in a lesser capacity.
The Devil: Such as?
Sam: Well.. I haven’t come up with the full plan or anything. Maybe I could get the word out, you know, be a recruiter. I could start my own Satanic web site, with evil design and then have really cool devil graphics or something.
The Devil: Business is booming, Sam, I don’t need any help with recruiting.

Ben: Well, did the Devil give you instructions, a manual, anything?
Sam: No, the Devil just pretty much sets me up failure.
Ben: Yeah, well he is the Devil.

Sam: My soul gets sold to the Devil, I get 42 miles to the gallon.

Sock: You need a doctor. Dr. Jager, Dr. Cuervo, Dr. Captain Morgan--he has two titles.

Sock: You are a very very hostile young lady, do you know that? Can I have your number?

The Devil: You know, Sam, you’re a lucky man. You’re home during the day, all the wonderful daytime television to watch. When does Ellen come on?

The Devil: He was electrocuted in Hell every day that he was down there. That’s the kind of thing that makes a person crazy. That’s what I do best.

Andi: You know what, Ted? You caught me. I stole the eight bucks.
Ted: I see.
Andi: Yep. I was saving to buy you a girlfriend. I assume you’re okay with the plastic variety.

Sock: Oh, that is quite the bag o’batteries you’ve got there, Josie. Feeling lonely these days?
Josie: We’re having blackouts, jackass. They’re for my flashlight. And if I was lonely for you, I’d just get a pencil.
Sock: Oh that’s what they all say, sweetheart. (thinks about it) Wait, wait, wait…

Sock: I feel like a giant condom.

Ben: We’re going to die dressed as condoms.
Sock: That’s the truth.

The Devil: Look at that badass.
Sam: What are you talking about?
The Devil: You man, you. The way you faced off with that soul. “Are we gonna do this hard, or easy?” Ooh, I got chills. Seriously.

DMV Demon: The fact that you two haven’t been killed yet astonishes me.
Sam: Well, thanks, Gladys.

The Devil: C’mon, Sammy, turn that frown upside down.
