  • Burnt Toast By: Mack Reynolds
  • Alan Sheriff walks into the room to find a demon with thirteen cocktails, and a proposition.
  • In just one. There are thirteen in all. You choose a glass, you drink it, and i award you with a hundred dollars. If you wish to try again, you receive two hundred, next is four hundred, and so on. If you lose, the forfeit is your life and your... soul.
  • You said, minute ago, you put poison...
  • Alan Sheriff comes back to the demon for the third time.
  • Eight hundred this time, and the odds are one in ten.
  • Here's to glory!
  • Alan Sheriff came back for the sixth time, claiming he's going to use the money for a job.
  • Each time is a separate time. You don't use up your luck, there is no such thing. The odds aren't as good as they were, but they're stilt seven to one in my favor.
  • When we began, there were thirteen glasses, one of which was poisoned. However, we are nearly half through now and your good luck cannot last forever.
  • It's the eighth time. He already took the drink and is asking for the money.
  • Give me the dough. I'm on my way to show up a wise guy. Show him what a real spender can do for a girl. What'd be a classy present for Muriel? Show her what a real guy does for a dame...
  • I understand mink is highly thought of.
  • Alan Sheriff was running from the cops, when he is shocked to find out that he has already drank the cocktail with the poison.
  • The poison was odorless and tasteless and you got it on your eighth try. Since then your life and soul have been mine to collect at will. The fact that I haven't done so sooner was my own whim-and excellent business, as it developed. Surely in the past few years you have done more for the, ah, cause I serve than you would have had I collected my wager immediately
