* LittleMissBadass: Isabelle in Episode 4. Satan tries to bully her into agreeing to an extension by subjecting her to about a minute of what life in hell will be like. She tells him to fuck off, prompting Satan to loose his cool.
* MachineWorship: One client was a roboticist who sold her soul to the devil so she could build a robot capable of thought.

But her body ends up malfunctioning, and incapable of moving at all but [[AndIMustScream still fully conscious.]]

* LiteralGenie: The Devil ensures that a poorly-phrased deal will backfire. For example, Katrina dies of ThePlague after Morgan's 10-year deal is up because Morgan asked for "more time with her," not that she be fully cured and live.

For example, Katrina dies of ThePlague after Morgan's 10-year deal is up because Morgan asked for "more time with her," not that she be fully cured and live. Or in Carter Baines's case, he asked for the ability to win. Even though he made the deal to put away the guilty, the fact that he only asked for the ability to win ensured that a lot of innocent people got put away.
