Movie Quote of the Day (‘Bedazzled,’ As Satan Explains the 7 ‘Mystic Rules of Life’ Behind a Faustian Bargain)

[George Spiggott—aka Satan—has pulled out a contract calling for Stanley, a woebegone, lovelorn short-order cook, played by Dudley Moore, to sell his soul to him.]

George Spiggott [played by Peter Cook]: “It's the standard contract. Gives you seven wishes in accordance with the mystic rules of life. Seven Days of the Week, Seven Deadly Sins, Seven Seas, Seven Brides for Seven Brothers...” —Bedazzled (1967), screenplay by Peter Cook, from a story by Dudley Moore, directed by Stanley Donen
