The Devil, sensing a potential convert, approaches a bedraggled musician singing—rather badly—for money on a pier. He offers the musician his card, telling him he represents a recording company and suggests they could make a deal “beneficial” to the both of them. Sam pulls the Devil away and confronts him.
Sam: What are you doing?
Devil (grinning): What does it look like?
Sam: You’re setting that guy up so you can buy his soul.
Devil (laughing): Uh, duh, Sam.
Sam: C’mon, just leave him alone. He’s pathetic enough as it is.
Devil (playing along): Oh, yeah, well, Sam, maybe you’re right. If I’m hearing you correctly, you’re basically calling me a morally bankrupt, evil being.
Sam hesitates a moment.
Sam: Yes. More or less.
Devil: Then this makes perfect sense.
The Devil pushes Sam out of the way and walks back with an evil smile towards the musician.
