Added DiffLines:

* PetTheDog: When George, apparently on a whim, lets Stanley out of his contract. But he only did it so he could tell God “I even did a good deed!”


* ExactWords: What George does with all of Stanley’s wishes.



* GodAndSatanAreBothJerks: George is certainly the living embodiment of EvilIsPetty and perfectly happy to damn a billion souls as long as it gets himself back Heaven. But God, for His part, was the one who agreed to the contest in the first place ([[spoiler: and then weasels out of it when George wins, causing George to declare that he's going to be ''even worse'' from now on]]), demands that George literally grovel in the dirt before Him while they talk, and just generally comes across as a self-obsessed tyrant.

He achieves this easily but [[GodAndSatanAreBothJerks God still finds a way to deny George entry to Heaven, and sends him back to square one.]]
