Glenna: Don't you mean supervillain?

Dan Marino: I can't stand retirement. Come on, just let me win one Superbowl.

Satan: Yeah, but Joe was coming here anyways.
Marino: This sucks. (storming off) I'll just go to the Superbowl as an announcer! And I'll win myself an Emmy!
Satan: That's the spirit!
Nicky: You're a good Devil, Dad.
Satan: And I also happen to be a Jets fan.
