What She Did for Love
Linda MacCullen is a washed up actress who is reduced to taking a singing waitress job to pay for dental work. When, out of embarrassment, she tries to remove her picture from the restaurant's marquee, she accidentally electrocutes herself. When Judge Othniel tells her she's wasted her life and will not get a second chance, Mr. Jones steps in and uses one of his three freebies to get her a second chance. Linda is determined to come back and ensure that her younger self wins the audition she lost and the one which she claims ruined her life.

      • Linda: Oh my God, I am dead. I'm dead and I don't even have any lipstick on. Don't you guys have mirrors around here? I can't meet my maker looking like this.
        Mr. Jones: Appearance doesn't matter.
        Linda: Maybe not in your business.

      • Linda: So this is heaven? Somehow I though the lighting would be better up here.
        Mr. Jones: Linda, we're not as high up as you think we are.
        Linda: Oh, when do we get there?
        Mr. Jones: The question is not when, but if, and that depends on the judge.

      • (picking a rose from his bush)
        Judge Othniel: This is a masterpiece of engineering and an object of exquisite beauty. (pricks himself on thorn) Ouch! (laughs) It can also be a source of pain. But if properly nurtured and tended to, it offers a deep and abiding sense of joy and wonder.

      • (looking at her younger self)
        Lana: Look at me in my prime. Everything's still where it's supposed to be, instead of three inches lower.

      • Lana: I spent my entire broke, empty life running after something I was never going to catch. How could I have been so stupid?
        Mr. Jones: Vanity, denial, ego, pride.
        Lana: OK, OK. Geez.
