From the short story "The Devil and Daniel Webster" by Stephen Vincent Benet. Poor Jake Stone is a total loser. When he finally loses the worst job he's ever had, he makes the claim that he would do anything to be a winner. Soon he meets Lucy, a seemingly attractive, professional woman who can make a special deal with him: she gives Jake wisdom, and he signs away his soul. Rather than waste his opportunity, Jake becomes a kind and intelligent person who gives much to the world. As the time to relinquish his soul draws near, he seeks out the counsel of Danielle Webster, the best attorney in the country, to try and undo his contract with Lucy. A trial follows with an evil judge and a jury hand picked by Lucy from her collection of souls. Can a brilliant attorney defeat the forces of darkness? The results are hilarious.
