Further, even if he were successful, the majority of devils that might possibly respond are well within an accepted range of difficult for the forces we have arranged here. [...] The chance of him summoning a devil that would actually put us in mortal danger is infinitesimally low.
->'''Elan:''' So it's like a million-to-one chance? [...] TAKE COVER!
->'''BigRedDevil:''' RAAAWWRRR!!!
->'''Elan:''' A 10% chance is unlikely, but everyone knows that a million-to-one chance is a sure thing!
->'''Vaarsuvius:''' And
once again, Probability proves itself willing to sneak into a back alley and service Drama as would a copper-piece harlot.''

See, no one wants to admit to them that they '''stuck''' something [[AssShove up there]]. Never. It's '''always''' an accident. Every proctologist story ends in the same way: 'It was a million to one shot, Doc! Million to one!'"''
