Memorable Moments


  • The Yattering: Beelzebub, my lord. You heard me.
Beelzebub: We hear all suffering in the Depths, demon. Every sigh, every tear, every complaint. That's what makes it Hell.
  • The Yattering: But my lord, it's this... this man, he's... he's some kind of saint. I'll never snatch his soul!
Beelzebub: He's not a saint. He's a pickle salesman.
  • Amanda: Dad, isn't that true what he just said about Heaven?
Jack: Possibly, yes, but you know what I always say... What are you muttering about back there, Yat? What is it that I always say?
The Yattering: Que sara sara?
Jack: Right! That's what I always say.
