We pick up right where we left off: at The Bench, as always. Tony and another demon watching as a third prepares a test of Sam's possible Satanic paternity. The test? Drop a washing machine on him, and see if he uses his "evil powers" to protect himself. It's about as sophisticated as strapping rocks on the ladies of Salem. Sam strides through The Bench, unknowing, until a minion pushes the washer off a shelf. Sam flinches as it plunges, then miraculously freezes in mid-air, letting Sam back away before it falls. Sam looks around, scared and confused, while Tony gives a "That sucks" face, and his demon friend waxes philosophic about how Sam will bring about the destruction of human civilization. Ever-enterprising Sam puts a "1/2 Off!" sign on the busted washing machine, prompting the demon to say, "Oh, he is evil like nothing before."
Later, Andi and JBL join Sam as he stares at a stain on The Bench's ceiling. He claims it resembles Steve. They're interrupted by Ben's less-than-triumphant return from the chokey. Apparently his Stooge soul mates forgot to pick him up. But, for his troubles, Ben has a snazzy new suit -- a gift from an attempted murderer. Natch, JBL wants to try it on, but Ben's still pissy about being abandoned after only eight days away from his buddies. Sam paints over the Steve-like stain, then takes off for a break.
He heads home to 666 with a basket of dirty laundry, only to spy his parents fighting outside. He heads out to ask Dad what's going on, but Dad brushes it off. Given Sam's general impotence, unabashed avoidance would usually work, except there's a blatant chalk circle around Dad, plus dust all over his hands and pants. Busted! Dad carries on playing dumb, leaving Sam befuddled.
Some time later, Sam heads outside to deposit his laundry in his car. Upon closing the trunk, he's transported to a rendezvous with WiseGuy, who's standing in line for the lottery -- or, as he calls it, the "idiot tax"; he claims he invented it. Sam decides to probe into how WiseGuy met Dad. WiseGuy asks Sam what he knows. Sam rehashes the story, and WiseGuy says his parents have no reason to lie. This sparks Sam's suspicion. WiseGuy issues a caveat that people who do dealings with him tend to have low integrity. He then segues to this week's soul, Madame Ozera, an early-1900s Tarot reader. She was truly psychic but was eventually strung up by the locals for her association with The Devil.
Over at The Bench, Josie startles a sleeping JBL. She's miffed he bailed on a lunch date and accuses him of being a bad boyfriend. He rebuts that relationships should be effortless, adding that, if being her boyfriend is going to be a job, well...he quits! She Trumps him, "You're fired!" and stomps off. Over at the register, Sam counts cash. Suddenly, he spots a specter that looks like Steve on the security monitor. He looks up, no Steve. He looks down, there's Steve again. Spooky!
