But soon, he's bored with the gold, since everything is free, and with the beautiful girls, who only laugh when he tries to hurt them, since he has a sadistic streak...

So, he summons the St. Peter figure.

"Well, then I must belong with my friends in the other place. Sned me there ."

"Oh, no - - we can't do that - -rules you know ...."

"Heaven???" Who said anything about heaven?"

"Heaven's the other place !!!"
