  • Trivia

    • Vessel: a sweater

    • The contract that Sam gets from the demon at the start of the episode shows that the contract itself is quite large. Far too large to ever fit in his locker at work, where it is shown later.

    • When Sam exits the sewers where the Devil showed him the victims of the latest demon, he is shown moving the manhole cover with one hand barely touching it, trying to avoid all the slime. Those manhole covers weigh around 40-45 pounds and would be difficult to move with both hands.

  • Quotes

    • Sock: All right, listen to me. I'm not advocating violence here. But if you need to... uh... "take care of Greg," I know some people.
      Sam: Yeah, I know the Devil. I think my people trump your people.
      Sock: Yeah... Oh, yeah...

    • Sock: All right, let's talk consistency here. We're talking about a dude made from slime. What is it, snot-like? Spit? Household slime? What?

    • Sam: So, uh, what did I miss last night?
      Sock: Oh dude, the bar was awesome. We had a great time.
      Sam: Yeah?
      Sock: Yeah.
      Sam: What happened?
      Sock: Uh, nothing happened. It was super boring. It sucked.
      Sam: You just said it was awesome.
      Sock: Yeah, I chose my words poorly, Sam.

    • Sam: What is Ted doing?
      Andi: I put a note on his windshield. It says: "Sorry, I hit your car."
      Sam: You hit Ted's car?
      Andi: No.
      Sam: Who did?
      Andi: No one.

    • Sam: Here's an idea, come with. The girls are getting really wasted, they'd be all over a guy in uniform. I can help you out, be your wingman. Not… not to suggest that you need any help. You're a very attractive demon. I'm… I'm not hitting on you, I just… I'm gonna shut up now, I'm gonna sign, that's what I'm going to do.

    • Ben: Oh wow, did the Devil give you that or my grandmother?
      Sock: Yeah, maybe you wear that and the soul laughs itself back to Hell.

    • Sam: Trade? Dad, I don't think you have anything to trade.
      Mr. Oliver: I have skills, Sam. All the years in advertising, I can use those skills.
      Sam: I don't… I just don't think you have anything the Devil needs.
      Mr. Oliver: I've created cartoon mascots to sell cigarettes to kids, Sam. To kids. Tell the Devil that.
      Sam: That's a good point.

    • Sock: You ever dumpster dive?
      Ben: Of course. Remember that shirt I got you for your birthday?
      Sock: That's a fine grab.

    • Devil: He's been dating other women. Plural. Twins, to be exact.
      Sam: What?
      Devil: Ha. Dirty girls. Slutty. Oh, this player even makes me jealous.

    • Sam: Yeah, well, I was being stupid.
      Devil: Man to man? You always get a little stupid around that girl, Sam.
