Devil: You don't see anything. It's dark, but you never know when one may show up. But there are more forms...

Maxine: Does this place have windows?

Devil: One. It lets you peek out. Let me lead you to it.

Maxine: It's light outside. It's beautiful. Can I go outside?

Devil: Of course not, that's heaven. That's how the other side lives. We've been trying to figure out how to tax them and improve our conditions here. No luck so far. But you can understand why we watch you folks down on earth. You've been more effective.

Maxine: I want to go back.

Devil: Fine. But next time, keep a water purifier in your purse when you come. Just a word to the wise.

Maxine: Where do you get them?

Devil: I saw that you can get one on Glenn Beck's website. You know, he's got all that crazy survival stuff there.

Maxine: I couldn't support his website.

Devil: Use an alias! Devils get good at disguise!
