Is not punishing you
It is not blessing you
It is not controlling you…
The universe responds to the vibration you are creating.
Think happy and happiness will come to you. Think negatively and negativity will come back to you. What we put in to the universe, we get back like an echo.”
Ebenezer Scrooge: Marley! Where am I?
Jacob Marley's Ghost: I should have thought it was obvious. I heard you were coming down today, so I thought I'd come to greet you, show you to your quarters. Nobody else wanted to.
Ebenezer Scrooge: That's... that's very civil of you, Marley. I...I...I...I am dead, aren't I?
Jacob Marley's Ghost: As a coffin nail.
Ebenezer Scrooge: I...I had rather hoped I'd end up in Heaven.

Six weeks ago... it happened in Hell. A hundred and thirteen of the most vile creatures whoever walked the earth escaped. And now they're back.
Father Edward Salinas: But the Prince of Lies, the master of Hell, surely having his subjects back on Earth spreading chaos and destruction, all this would bring a smile to his face.
Ezekiel Stone: Oh no, Father. You of all people know that even the devil has to answer to a higher power. He screwed up, and now he needs someone to fix things. Track down those creatures and... send them back to Hell.”
