The DevilEdit

  • Do hope this isn't an awkward moment.
    • After walking in on Stanley Moon's failed suicide attempt
  • Suicide, really — that's the last thing you should try.
  • You realize that suicide's a criminal offence. In less enlightened times, they'd have hung you for it.
  • You fill me with inertia.
    • Spoken as musical performer Drimble Wedge
  • What terrible sins I have working for me. I suppose it's the wages.
  • What would you like to be? Prime Minister? Oh, no, wait, I've already signed that deal.
    • Bargaining for Stanley's soul, most likely referring to Harold Wilson, the prime minister at the time.
  • The garden of Eden was a boggy swamp just south of Croydon. You can see it over there.
  • There was a time when I used to get lots of ideas — I thought up the Seven Deadly Sins in one afternoon. The only thing I've come up with recently is advertising.
  • It's the standard contract. Gives you seven wishes in accordance with the mystic rules of life. Seven Days of the Week, Seven Deadly Sins, Seven Seas, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers —
    • The latter also directed by Donen.
  • Release your doo-dahs.
    • To a pigeon about to fly over a man
  • In the words of Marcel Proust — and this applies to any woman in the world — if you can stay up and listen with a fair degree of attention to whatever garbage, no matter how stupid it is, that they're coming out with, till ten minutes past four in the morning — you're in!
  • I lost Mussolini that way, all that work, then right at the end with the rope around his neck, he says, 'Scusi. Mille regretti,' and up he goes!"
    • Regarding last minute repentance; Mussolini was actually shot.
  • Everything I've ever told you's been a lie, including that.
  • Don't ever believe anything I've said; believe me.
  • Job was what you'd technically describe as a loony.
  • In the words of Marcel Proust — and this applies to any woman in the world — if you can stay up and listen with a fair degree of attention to whatever garbage, no matter how stupid it is that they're coming out with, til ten minutes past four in the morning... you're in.
  • Just putting a tiny little ventilation hole in this oil tanker.
  • Tell God not to go away. I'll be back in a minute.
  • All right, you great git, you've asked for it. I'll cover the world in Tastee-Freez and Wimpy Burgers. I'll fill it with concrete runways, motorways, aircraft, television, automobiles, advertising, plastic flowers, frozen food and supersonic bangs. I'll make it so noisy and disgusting that even you'll be ashamed of yourself! No wonder you've so few friends; you're unbelievable!

Stanley MoonEdit

  • I, Stanley Moon, hereinafter and in the hereafter to be known as 'The Damned' — The damned?!

DialogueEdit

Stanley Moon: You're a nutcase! You're a bleedin' nutcase!
George Spiggott: They said the same of Jesus Christ, Freud, and Galileo.
Stanley Moon: They said it of a lot of nutcases too!
George Spiggott: You're not as stupid as you look are you, Mr. Moon?

Stanley Moon: I thought you were called Lucifer.
George Spiggott: I know. "The Bringer of the Light" it used to be. Sounded a bit poofy to me.

Stanley Moon: Here, my ice lolly's melted. You really must be the Devil.
George Spiggott: Incarnate. How d'you do?

Stanley: What a dreary thing to do — I hope you're proud of yourself.
George: It was pride that got me into this. I used to be an angel, you know — up in heaven.
Stanley: Oh yeah, you used to be God's favourite, didn't you?
George: That's right — "I Love Lucifer" it was in those days.

George: Pretend I'm God and now dance around me and sing my praises."
Stanley: [after a few seconds] I'm getting tired can we switch places?
George: That's exactly how I felt!

Stanley: If you're the devil, why didn't you try that vicar over there?
George: Oh no, he's one of ours.

George Spiggott: Everything I've ever told you has been a lie. Including that.
Stanley Moon: Including what?
George Spiggott: That everything I've ever told has been a lie. That's not true.
Stanley Moon: I don't know what to believe.
George Spiggott: Not me, Stanley, believe me!

Stanley Moon: Apart from the way He moves, what's God really like? I mean, what colour is He?
George Spiggott: He's all colours of the rainbow, many-hued.
Stanley Moon: But He is English, isn't He?
George Spiggott: Oh yes. Very upper class.
