He that dies pays all debts.

– William Shakespeare

The Tempest, Act 3, Scene 2. Stephano is spooked by the music played by the invisible Ariel. In this quote he is trying to look on the bright side of any potential death, saying that the dead are debt-free. Just before this quote, he called on the performer of the music to show themselves if they were a man, and to go to hell if they were a devil.
