  • Quotes

    • Mr. Roarke: But the real threat was much more than that, wasn't it? You are about to lose your immortal soul.
      Philip: What are you saying?
      Mr. Roarke: You should have told me you were involved with the Prince of Darkness, Mrs Breem.
      Philip: Are you crazy?
      Mandy: Mr. Roarke is right, Philip. I entered into a pact with Satan and payment is due.

    • Mr. Bamwell: Oh Mr. Roarke I couldn't leave without thanking you personally.
      Mr. Roarke: My pleasure Mr. Bamwell, I take it your Errol Flynn fantasy was a success.

    • Mephistopheles: You look well Mandy, how's your husband? You see I kept my end of the bargain, didn't I.
      Mandy: I need to talk to you.
      Mephistopheles: Now it's your turn to deliver the goods, so to speak.
      Mandy: Wait, you said you'd give me an out. A chance to renegotiate our contract.
      Mephistopheles: Very well, provided you do not tell Mr. Roarke about our deal.
      Mandy: I haven't said a word, I swear.
      Mephistopheles: Splendid, in that case my dear Mandy, I will let you buy out of our contract.
      Mandy: I haven't very much money.
      Mephistopheles: Oh I was thinking of something much more exotic than money. Now let me see, what would I take in place of your soul. I know, an alba form of paniseapalulakei, yes...
      Mandy: A what?
      Mephistopheles: Oh forgive me, it's a flower, it's common name is the Queen Omega Orchid.
      Mandy: A flower, you just want a flower?
      Mephistopheles: Oh but it's a very special one, very beautiful and very delicate. It should be potted not cut, you place the living bloom of the Queen Omega in my hands by midnight tomorrow and I will release you from our bargain. Now that's fair isn't it.
      Mandy: I don't know very much about flowers.
      Mephistopheles: Oh but it shouldn't be difficult to find one in exchange for your soul, not here on Fantasy Island!
