Sam heads out to work but his car keys disappear out of his hand when he tries to unlock the door. He ends up taking a taxi but the money and wallet vanishes when he tries to pay the cabbie. Once he checks in, Ben finds the keys in his pocket and Sam figures it’s his new devil power kicking in. Sock is busy setting up the paint shaker as a rodeo bull ride and gets thrown into a rack of paint cans. They find Sam’s wallet in a paint can, then he goes in and waits on a customer and hallucinates the man stabbing him through the chest. Sock takes him to the vessel box that’s appeared in the back, where it’s shaking like something inside of it...

Episode Quotes
(getting hosed down)
Sock: Not the crotch! Not the crotch!

Sam: You see that guy?
Sock: Yeah?
Sam: I just had this really weird vision that he stabbed me.
Sock: I just ate this really weird cupcake, so I guess we're even.

Sock: New devil box arrived in the middle of the back room. Scared the crap out of Ben.
Sam: What about me? I just thought I got stabbed. You know how scary that is?
Sock: All right, come on, hop on. Come on, piggyback. It’ll cheer you up. Come on! Come on!
Sam: No, I’m good.
Sock: Yeah, you’re a little big for that now, aren’t you? Just you so you know, I would have piggybacked you right back there.

Sock: I’m too disgruntled, all right. I mean, give me a break, no talking at work. I mean, what’s next, take away the air I breathe? Take away the beer that I’m about to drink on my break?

Sam: We are not machines, we are not robots.
Sock: Be cooler if we were robots.
Sam: Yeah.
Sock: You know who I’d be if I were a robot?
Sam: Who?
Sock: The hot chick from Terminator 3. First I would tear this building down brick by brick, then I would go home, lock myself in the bedroom, and stare at my boobs for as long as I wanted.
Sam: Yeah.
Sock: Which would be a long time.

The Devil: Sam, life’s too short to drink domestic.

The Devil: Minions. You know who works for me in my central office? White-collar criminals. They hate me, they hate their jobs. I’m lucky if I get coffee in the morning.

Sam: God, you sound like Ted.
The Devil: Ooh, that’s harsh. Ted is a real douchebag.

Ted: What, are you talking to yourself, Sam? That is a sad, sad state of affairs, my friend. Because no one answers. Ever. (uncomfortable pause) Ever.

Customer: How much for the flat screen?
Sock: A million dollars. Try Best Buy.

Ben: Nobody’s hurting Winston.
Sam: Who’s Winston?
Ben: The bird.
Sam: You named the vessel?
Sock: Dude, Winston is not a bird’s name, Ben.
Ben: Okay, well you tell me what a bird’s name is.
Sock: I don’t know, uh, how about Flappy? Or Paul?

Sock: So all I have to do is snap a little eyeliner and I'll get to shower with Cameron Diaz!
Ben: Or probably not!
Sock: It's her loss.

Ben: You know, I’ve never seen a dead body up close before. It’s messed up.
Sock: I know, right? I mean, you’d think that seeing Scarface all those times, I’d be better prepared for that.

Sam: You put the contract for my soul with my third-grade report card and Mr. Huggles?
Mrs. Oliver: Yeah, you're right. It's not going to be in here.

The Devil: You know, Sam, sarcasm is the lowest form of social discourse.

The Devil: Forget about the contract.
Sam: No, no. I wanna see it.
The Devil: But why?
Sam: Because I wanna know my rights.
The Devil: Oh, that's easy. You don't have any.

Driver: Go to Hell, jerk!
The Devil: I’ll meet you there, Bruce. (aside) You know that little thing on his neck? Not a freckle.

Ted: You know what, Sam? I’m not really in the habit of checking other men out. Unlike some people I know.
Sock: Huh? Sorry. I was so busy checking out your ass, I missed your funny joke.

Sock: That, my friend, was some fine hell sucking.

Sock: Hi, Gladys. You are looking ummm today.
Gladys: Place the vessel on the mat.
Sock: Whoa, it’s gonna to be kind of difficult with all that sexual tension pushing back.

The Devil: I never drink when I work. It clouds the mind.
Sam: Maybe if you drank, you’d be less of a dick.

The Devil: Filing system in the Abyss is shabby, as you might expect, but I’ll put in a request.
