The Devil and Daniel Webster (1941)
John Qualen: Miser Stevens
Jabez Stone : What's the matter with you?
Miser Stevens : Are you afraid?
Jabez Stone : Afraid of what?
Miser Stevens : Of what happens when we die.
Jabez Stone : Are you crazy, man? We're buried, that's all.
Miser Stevens : But what becomes of our soul?
Jabez Stone : [agitated] Why should you fret about something that isn't there?
Miser Stevens : Don't say that. I know it is.
Jabez Stone : All right, so it's buried with you!
Miser Stevens : But what if one hasn't a soul anymore?
Jabez Stone : What's that? Well, what about it? Who cares anyhow!
Miser Stevens : I do. And I think you do, too.
Mr. Scratch : [reading from his list] Sherwin, Slaterly, Stevens - I can cross him off the list, he's an old customer...
[something like a moth flies out of his handkerchief toward Jabez]
Miser Stevens' Voice : [faint] Help me, Jabez Stone! Help me!
Jabez Stone : That's Miser Stevens' voice!
Mr. Scratch : [catching it] Miser Stevens' soul, I'm sorry for the disturbance.
Jabez Stone : But he isn't dead, he's dancing! He's in there!
Mr. Scratch : He was.
[Jabez runs into the ballroom and sees Stevens' body stretched out]
Mr. Scratch : In the midst of life, one really hates to close these long standing accounts. But, business is business.
