On Halloween, Harry traps himself inside a safe while practicing a magic trick and Dan is pursued by a little devil who seems to know all about him.
While practicing an escape act for his Halloween party, Harry accidentally locks himself inside a safe and nearly suffocates to death; Dan thinks it's a joke when a man in a devil costume gives him $100 in exchange for his soul, but becomes afraid when the man seems to know everything about his past life.
- Factual errors:
Harry is locked in the safe after the safe door is lightly struck by Art opening the office door. Safe doors weigh hundreds if not thousands of pounds, far too heavy to casually swing shut. Further, large safes are locked by thick metal rods that must be locked in place by turning a lever or wheel. Even if the door had swung shut, it would not have locked without deliberate action from outside.
