Four men--Marty, Jake, Tony, and Peter--get together for their weekly game of poker at Peter's house. Joining them is Nick, the cousin of Norman, their sick missing player. Nick keeps winning with full houses, always with three sixes. Tony is dealing and calls for a new game, Night Baseball, and a disgusted Jake goes to get some more beer. He discovers that they're out of beer and complains to Peter, while the somewhat slow-witted Marty tries to figure out the rules of the game...Read the full recap
Narrator: (opening narration) Just a friendly game of cards. It doesn't take much to buy into this game, but buying out, may be something else entirely. You see, there's a wild card on the table in a deck that's been reshuffled and cut in the Twilight Zone.
Nick: Uh, Pete, do you have any water?
Peter: Yeah, in the kitchen. Keep it in the faucet. Saves on space, you know?
Tony: What's the Devil doin' here in North Jersey?
Jake: What are you talkin' about, Tony? I think he lives here.
Peter: We just tried to call Norman. Norman's not home sick. Norman's not home period.
Jake: Yeah. Whatta you got to say about that, huh, Mr. 666?
Nick: Norman's out visiting a sick uncle. (checks his watch) Excuse me, make that a dead uncle.
Peter: You know, a guy wants to sit in and play poker with some guys, he should come up and say, "Hello, hi, I'm the Prince of Darkness, can I sit in for a few hands?"
Jake: Give us a break, will ya? It's one thing being the Devil, it's another thing being a total jerk.
Tony: Now our buddy Peter here is betting his immortal soul. What are you putting up?
Nick: Eighteen bucks.
Tony: You might as well pack your tent and go home.
Jake: What do you say, Nicky baby?
Tony: Give it up, Devil.
Nick: Mr. Devil to you.
Nick: Gentlemen, I'm sorry, I really am. I couldn't help myself. I'm the Devil. What do you expect?
Marty: Hey, Jake, that Nick's not such a bad guy after all, huh?
Jake: Maybe not, but I wouldn't want him to marry my sister.
Narrator: (closing narration) There's an old saying, oft told but seldom heeded: "Never deal with the Devil". But, if by chance you must, it's nice to know he can be a good sport. Just a friendly game of cards among a friendly group of guys who've just come back from the Twilight Zone.
