7th Heaven (1996–2007): Season 7, Episode 10 - A Cry for Help - full transcript

Eric becomes the new DJ for a college radio station and he is immediately is involved in a suicide call by a student. Lucy continues to be upset about the partnership of Kevin with Roxanne.

I could have sworn
I heard Daddy.

Did you hear Daddy?

I heard Daddy.

We all heard Daddy.

I wonder where he could be.


Yeah, hide and go seek.
Hide and go seek.

First we find Daddy,
then we play.


I've been calling you.

Well, we've been looking
for you.

Now it's our turn,

our turn.

Count to 20
and come look for us.

I got good news.

You're going back
to the church.

I said I've got good news.

When did going back to work
at the church become bad news?

I guess when Lou
and the deacons decided

I needed an associate pastor

without so much
as asking my opinion.

Yes, uh, the day they hired

That would be the day when
working at my former church

became bad news.

Come on, let Lou and the little
wunderkind run the church.

Who cares?


Yes, wunderkind.

A person of remarkable talent
or ability,

who achieves great success
or acclaim at an early age:


Would you like me to spell it?

Whose calling Chandler
a wunderkind?

Well, the deacons who hired him.

And if Chandler
is a wunderkind,

then I must be... an oldenkind.

So let Chandler
have the church.

You're not counting.



I got a job.

You're looking at the newest
radio personality

for KRHL 109.9.

KRHL 109.9.

What is that?

It's Crawford University's
student radio station.

This job is gonna be fun--
no worries, no problems.

You know,
no life-and-death situations.

Just music and fun.

They had an
immediate opening,

so I start today.


save your "good luck" speeches
and say a little prayer for me.

So what do you think?

Oh, if ever there was
a loaded question.

What do I think?

What do I think?

Well, a month ago I had
a husband who was a minister

at a church and,
and now I have...

Well, I, I don't have
a husband

who's a minister
of a church.

I have a husband
who's a DJ.

I didn't marry a DJ.
I married a minister.

I want my husband back.
Give me my husband back.

I meant what did you think
of this shirt?

The shirt is fine.

The guy who's wearing it,
I'm not so sure about.



That's not a good
enough reason. Why?

Because I don't
want to.


I think you know why.

No, I don't.

Come on, tell me why
you don't want

to go out with Roxanne
and her friends tonight.

It was nice of her
to invite us.

I think we should all
spend more time together.


If you want to go out
with Roxanne so badly,

you can go by yourself.

It'll look strange
if I go alone.

Roxanne invited both of us.

She invited both of us,
but she only wants you.

Let's go, boys.

Hey I-I want to have
a word with you.

What's going on?

What else?


Except for Charlie's Angels,

have you ever seen a police
officer who looked like Roxanne?

Why couldn't
Kevin's partner
be someone

with bad skin
and a weight problem?

Why does it have
to be a supermodel? Why?

I don't know,

but did you help
your father get a job

at the campus radio station?

Why did you help your father
get a job

at the campus radio station?

It'll be okay. Trust me.

Look, I know
we all want Dad

to go back to the church.

And this may just be the job

to get him back into the spirit
of things, so to speak.

Being a DJ is going to help him
get back in the church?

Yeah, I think so.

I have to go.
I have to get
to the library.

But trust me,
this will all work out.

By the way, did Robbie make it
to Florida okay?

Yeah, he called this morning.

How's his mom?

that he's there,
but still not good.

When's he coming back?

Sometime after Christmas.

What about school?

His teachers
let him take

his finals early so he could go
be with his mom.

That's nice.


Everything will be okay
with Dad.


Can you watch the boys
while I go to the grocery store

and run some errands?

I'll probably be gone
most of the day.

It's the first day
off restriction.

Got any plans
for your new freedom?

Uh, yeah, babysitting.

After babysitting. Like, Jake?

I do not now nor do I ever wish
to have plans with Jake.

Oh, I, I thought
you liked him.

He called you every day while
you were on restriction.

And when he wasn't calling me
at home,

he was following me
around school

and getting his
lunch switched so we
could eat together...

every day.

And when he wasn't doing that,

he was trying to carry things
for me:

my backpack, my books,

my jacket.

Once, he insisted
on carrying my gum for me.

My gum.

I don't want
to see Jake anymore.

He likes me more than I like
him, and it's creeping me out.

You go on right
after Charlotte.


Okay? I'll be
your producer.

I'll feed you
the calls.

Now, you sit in here
and, um, I'll be

right in front of you
in the booth over here.

We talk through
the intercom.

Calls? I'm taking requests?

Well, no.

Uh, in the afternoon
we do talk radio.

I've been filling in for the guy
who normally does the show,

but I, I figured
you'd do much better a job.

It's really not my
specialty, talking
to people,

helping people
with their problems.

You know, I'm more
the producer/manager.

That's where
my talent lies.

I'm talking to people,
helping people?

Didn't Lucy tell you?

No, she didn't.

I mean, I thought I was going to
be playing music, not talking.

I... I'm not so sure I want
to be a, a talk radio host.

I think it's, it's, too close
to my last job.

Um... look, I'm,
I'm in a jam.

Um, maybe you can
just help me out today,

and tomorrow I'll find
something else for you.

More music less talk,
if that's what you want.


The holidays are coming up.
It's our busiest time.

Lots of kids just want to talk
about what

to do over their break,
you know?

I'm sure it's nothing
as heavy as what you
were dealing with.

Okay, I'll, I'll give it
a shot.

Let's get you set up.

Interesting choice of words,
"set up."

She said this guy
from London that she dated

moved to Buffalo
to be closer to her.

So she dumped you?
It's rough.

I hate being alone,
especially around the holidays.

Is that why you came here
for Thanksgiving?


My mom's boyfriend took her
on a cruise,

and since my girlfriend
dumped me,

seemed like a good time

to get out of town.

Even my mother has someone.

My love life is pathetic.


Well, look, you should stop
feeling sorry

for yourself and come out
with me and Cecilia tonight.

We're going dancing
at Club Minor.

Isn't that an underage club
for kids who aren't old enough

to get into real clubs?

No, it's a club for men,
like myself,

who are between the ages
of 14 and 20.

Well, I'm 23,
so thanks, but no thanks.

Forget the age limit.

No one cares.

There are plenty of older girls
that hang out there

desperate to meet guys.


Look, it's a great place.

No alcohol, lots of music.

You had me at "desperate."


No. I can't go
to an underage club.

I'm a good-looking guy.

If I want a woman, I should
be able to find a woman.

Lots of women.

That's "women," not girls,
women who are my age.

Fine, don't go.


where would a good-looking guy
like me go to find a woman?

Try the Promenade. Good luck.

Luck is not a factor.

Don't kid yourself.
Luck is a huge factor.

Are you and Lucy
coming out with me
and my friends tonight?

I can come.

And Lucy?

She's sick.

She's sick, really.

Lucy was sick the last time
I invited you out

and the time before that
and the time before that

and the time before that.

Well, she's still sick.

Well, she should see someone.

Like a doctor?

Like a psychiatrist.

I'm sorry.

Me, too.

Is something wrong?

You know that

thing that we talked about?

Well, I did what you said.

I thought about it,
and I do want to do it.

I want a new partner.

Okay, Eric, we have
Warren on line four.

Hey Warren,
what's on your mind?

Who are you?

I'm Eric.

Where'd you come from?

You sound too old to be
a college student.

Well, for the past
20 years or so,

I've been the minister at
the Glenoak Community church.

So, why aren't you there
now at the church?

I quit.

They fired you, huh?

Corporate downsizing happens

to a lot of guys your age--
happened to my dad.

That's why I called.

I-I think it's really raw

when companies let old people
like you and my dad go.

I mean, companies have to
remember that old guys

aren't just old and useless.

They're usually somebody's
dad and stuff.

Well good point,
but as I said before,

uh, I-I wasn't fired.
I wasn't downsized.

I quit.

That's what my dad said, and now
he won't get out of his pajamas.

And he talks to the TV.

I wasn't fired.

Who took your place?

Another minister.

Older or younger?

You were downsized, dude.

Well maybe there's
someone else

out there who would like
to tell us their feelings

about this subject
or any other subject.

Anyone, please uh, call us.


Uh, we've got Karl
on line two.

Well good-bye, Warren,

and hello, Karl.

Hey, didn't you call earlier?

Your girlfriend left you,
and you're upset about that.

Yeah, I'm upset.

So what's up?

What would you like
to talk about?

I just called because I-I forgot
to tell you something.

Go ahead, I'm all ears.

I just thought
you should know...

someone should know...

I'm going to kill myself.

I-I'm sorry?

Wh-What did you say?

I'm miserable and unhappy,

and I miss my girlfriend.


I'd be better off dead.

It's just no use anymore.

I want to kill myself.


We can't find the phone
this Karl was calling from

unless we already had a trace
on the line, which we didn't.

We could put a trace on the line
in case he calls back.

But if he doesn't stay
on the line long enough,

we won't be able to zero in
on his location.

Of course, there's no guarantee
he'll call back.

Will takes down the numbers
of all the people who call.

Yes, but Karl, if that's his
name used a fake number.

And other than trying to set up
a trace on the line,

I don't know what else I can do
to help you find this kid.

But if you think
of anything, call me.

I'm at your disposal.


The phone number Karl
gave us is a fake.

Police are putting a trace
on the radio station phone,

but that's all they can do, and
it's going to take some time

to get it done so, I think
we're on our own here.

If he calls back,
maybe I can draw him out.

Get him to

come in and
talk to me.

You think he'll call back?

Well, he called back
once before.

Hopefully, he's got more to say.

It isn't a coincidence that you
hired me to do this job, is it?

Karl had been calling
all this week.

And his calls have gotten
more and more intense.

I didn't know he was suicidal.

You know I... I did know
whatever was wrong with him

was-was way over my head.

I thought if I
suggested he go
to the college

mental health clinic
or talk to a doctor,

I knew for sure he would
have never called back.

I didn't know
what to do.

So I talked to Lucy
and she suggested,

you know, maybe you were
the right guy to help

since you do counseling

and help people with problems
like this at church.

Look, I'm sorry.

I didn't mean to hire you
under false pretenses.

I'm glad you're here.

So, what do we do now?


Okay, that's it. No more.

I quit.


You cheat.

I don't cheat.

Yes, you do.

No, I cheat.

Yeah, he cheats.

No more Candyland for me.

I have homework.

How about
a healthy snack?

Mommy left you some
carrots and celery?



Double yuck.

How about I lose the
healthy snack in the trash

and we'll have ice cream?


What are you doing here?

Yeah, what are
you doing here?

Yeah, what are you
doing here?

Today's the day.

Today's the day you're
officially off of restriction.

I hate that you were punished.

I wish I could have done
the time for you.

Yes, but why are you here?

Well, for the two weeks
you've been telling me

that you couldn't see me
after school or on the weekend,

but now you're free

and we can spend all the time
we want together.

I have to babysit.

I can help.

And my mother said

I could stay for dinner.
Isn't that great?

Dinner where?


Don't you want me here?

Sure, I want you here.

KRHL 109.9.

Oh, okay, hold on.

It's Karl.

Karl, hey.

Glad you called back.

Are you okay?

Do, do, do...
I can't hear myself.

Why can't I hear myself?

I want to be on the radio.

Why don't we just talk,
uh, the-the two of us,

and then, we'll go back
on the radio

when you're feeling better
about things.

No. I'm never going to feel
better about things.

And I won't be a problem
for you much longer.

You're not a problem.

Either put me on the radio,
or I'm hanging up.

Don't do that. Don't hang up.

Talk to me.

Just put me on the radio.

I have something to say to
someone who I know is listening.

Okay, we're back

on the air.


Look, Karl, uh...

I know you're-you're feeling
like life's not fair,

and I know

you're upset
about your girlfriend,

but before you
do anything,

why don't we sit down
and talk face to face

over a cup of coffee,
discuss some options?

Because the second I show up,

you'll have me locked up
in some institution.

Well, I'm not nuts.

I didn't make this happen--
my girlfriend did.

She's the one
you should have locked up

in some institution so she can't
do this to another guy.

I don't want to have
anyone locked up.

I just... I just want to talk.

Uh... I... maybe
your girlfriend's

not the nicest woman
in the world.

I-I-I don't know.

Tell me more about her.

She's a terrible person,
and I want everyone to know

that I'm doing
this because of her.

She listens to this
radio station,

and her friends listen
to this radio station.

Everyone will know
what she did to me.

Everyone will know

that Emily Cooper
broke my heart,

and that's why I'm going
to kill myself.

Karl? Karl?

We lost him again.

When were you going
to tell me?

Detective Michaels
talk to you?

I don't want a new partner.

I do.

This is about Lucy, isn't it?

This is about me and you
and us being partners.

We've tried it.
It's not working.

I'm not changing partners.

It's not your decision.

Just say it.

This has to be about Lucy.

Okay, Lucy's stubborn
and slightly insane,

but she's a good person,
and she'll come around.

You'll see.

I'm tired of waiting.

Tired of trying.

Just plain tired.

Tell Lucy she wins.
I give up.

I say, "Uncle."

I've had it.

She can have you.

You can have another partner.

It's for the best.

This isn't what I want,
so how can it be for the best?

It's what Lucy wants.

And I'm tired of fighting
your girlfriend.

Because sooner or later
it's going to be

fighting your fiancée.

Then it's going to be
fighting your wife

and the mother of your children.

See, I will never win.

So let's just split up now
and move on.

Please, don't make this any
harder than it already is.

Do you validate
this here?

Okay, great.

Did you find
any women yet?

It's okay. Simon told me
about your problem.

I don't have a problem.

Didn't you say he got dumped
and he can't get a date,

and he's lonely and desperate?

I'm not lonely.

Yes, you are.

Well, I'm not desperate.

Yes, you are.

So come out with us tonight.

Club Minor is great.

There's lots
of older kids there.

Don't spend the
holidays alone.

Take a chance.

They're a lot of hot
older women at the club.

A lot.

But if I get there,

and it's just a sea
of acne and braces,

I'm gonna look like
a desperate idiot.

Small price to pay

for the chance of
hooking up with a babe.


Okay, count me in.

The police haven't been able
to get the trace working yet,

so... we have no idea where
Karl's calling from.

It's getting pretty scary.

They told me I could
find the guy

that Karl was talking
to on the radio here?

I'm Emily.

I'm the terrible woman
that broke up with Karl.

The guy who wants
to kill himself?

We have to stop him.

I missed you at dinner.

You look nice.

I'm going to meet Roxanne

and her friends
at the pool hall.




I said you should go.

Why are you angry?

Roxanne wants a new partner.

She wants a new partner
because of you.



No, you're not.

That's what you wanted from the
second you laid eyes on her.

That's not true.

Okay, it's true,
and I'm sorry.

I... I tried
to like Roxanne.

I try to like

But I just... don't.

There's no logical reason
for you not to like her.

Sometimes when it comes
to you and me and us,

I'm not so logical.

I hate that a woman
that good looking

is riding around with
you in a car all day.

She makes me nuts.

So this is because
you don't trust me.

I trust you.

So you don't trust Roxanne.

Hey, if you were me
and if I were you,

you wouldn't
trust her either.

Roxanne is my partner.

When I go to work,
my life is on the line

every day, every minute.

And you may not like her,
but I do.

And that should
make you feel better,

not worse.

Couldn't you trust someone
else with your life?

Let's say... a guy?

I'm going to the pool hall
to see Roxanne.

I'm not going to lose her
as a partner.

We're good together.

And what am I
supposed to do?

I don't know,
but if you don't figure it out

before the end of the night,

I don't know how much longer
we're going to be partners.


There isn't a girl in this line
who's older than 14,

other than Cecilia.

All of the older women
are inside.

Yeah, they're
probably inside.

Maybe I should go.

Hey, settle down.

settle down.

Oh, before I forget...

you are going to need this.

What's this?

You need it
to get in the door.

This says I'm 15.
Where'd you get this?

And they're going to check
for the school ID at the door.

Nobody is going to believe
that I'm 15...

and I'm black?

I know the doorman.

You're gonna give him
the school ID,

he's going to look
the other way.

I have a very bad feeling
about this.

I'm out of here.

I told you...

hot, older women inside.

Oh, you're still here.

My mother said I could stay
as late as I wanted to

because it's not a school night.

Isn't that great?

Oh, yeah. Great.

Can you take the boys

in the living room?

I promised them
one game of Candyland

before they go to bed.

He's driving me crazy.

Well, he has to go
home eventually.

Yes, but then he'll just
come back tomorrow

and the next day and the next
day and the next day.

Can I move to a foreign country?


I'll write.

Maybe it's time
you tell him

how you really feel.

You know, if you don't like him
and he likes you,

it's really not fair to him.

I don't want to hurt him.

He's nice.

Annoying, but nice.

Well, if you
break it to him gently

and if you're honest with him,

I'm sure he'll be okay.

We're all set up in the
living room for Candyland.

I don't like you.

I'm sorry.

I did like you,
but I don't anymore.

I don't want
to hang out with you.

I don't want you to carry
my books or my jacket.

I don't want
to eat lunch with you

or spend every Saturday
with you, either.

I said gently.

That's okay.

I don't care.


Hey, if you don't like me,
you don't like me.


I need a ride home.

Oh, sure.

I'll take you.

I have to go
out anyway.

Thanks for not crying.

We're 12.

It's not like we're
getting married.


So where are you off to?

To do something I don't want
to do but have to do.

Sometimes love sucks.

By the way,

I didn't get a chance
to listen to Dad on the radio.

How'd he sound?

I didn't listen to him either.

I'm not supporting
this change of careers.

I told you, he's not going
to change careers.

I'm sure of it.

So did he get
home yet?

No, he called to say
he'd be late.

Maybe he went by the church.

I doubt it.

It's getting late, and
we've looked everywhere.

I'm sorry.

I thought for sure
he'd be here.

Where else
could he be?

I know he's not at home.

I just don't know
where else he'd go.

Well, we can't give up.

No, we can't.

Emily, you gave us a pretty good
description of Karl.

Let's all split up
and take one more look around.

How you doing?

Look, no offense, but
I don't want to talk.

Me either.
I had a really bad day.

Well, I had a really
bad life, so...

Sorry to hear that, man.

Uh, one year ago today
I met my girlfriend right here.


She broke up with me last week.

We're not together anymore, man.

Yeah, I had a girl break up
with me like that one time,

two days before our anniversary.

I loved her so much.

I just wanted her
to be happy

and I wanted us to be together.

Then, bam, out of nowhere

she tells me it wasn't
working for her.

Told me she
didn't love me

and that she, uh,
wanted to break up.

What'd you do?

Well, I had it bad, man.

See, uh... was down
for a long time.

I didn't want to eat,
couldn't sleep.

Grades dropped.

She was all I could think about
or talk about.

And, obviously, my friends
were supportive,

but even they got tired after
a while of hearing about her.

So one of them suggested
that I might get something

out of talking
to a counselor at school.

I tried it.

Honestly, I felt
kind of stupid

talking to some guy
about my problems

that I didn't even know.

Then, I realized he had
no judgment over my situation,

my problems or me.

And that he was there

just to help me
talk it all through.

The more I talked,
the better I felt.

It doesn't work for everyone.

It worked for me.

It might work for you, man.

I don't think so.


I am so sorry that you
feel the way you do, but...

please don't do anything
to hurt yourself.

What do you care?

Just because I don't want
to date you or marry you,

doesn't mean
I don't care about you.

I do.

This is Eric,

the man you talked to on
the radio this afternoon.

Hey, well, you were...
you were right,

Emily was listening.

She came to us

and asked if we'd come
with her and look for you.

Talk to someone, Karl--
talk to a professional.

I want you to feel better
about yourself.


Please, let someone help you.

Let me help you.

I don't think you can.

I feel so lonely and...



I feel bad all the time.

Well, now,

what if you could feel better?

Uh, what if you could just...

get through today

and then start working

on tomorrow and the next day?

You know,

what if feeling better
about yourself

and your life was just
a matter of asking for help?

I can't get
through the pain to ask.

I can't.

How could you do this to me?

How can I love a person
who doesn't love himself?

Karl, I've watched
you spiral down,

day after day...

and I don't want
to be dragged down with you.

This isn't about me.

This is about you.

Look if you
don't want to...

ask for help, Karl,
then lean on Will and me.

Just let us take you
somewhere where you can

get through the night,

and then you can come back
to me tomorrow, and...

I'll take you somewhere

where you can get help
for the rest of your life.

You mean church?

I thought you said
on the radio you quit.

Maybe I just need some help...

walking back in the door.



I know this hospital.

It's this place
out by the beach.

Emily told me about it.

I think it's
a good place for you.

For you to get
some help.

So what do you
say, Karl?

Will you let the reverend
and Will take you there?

Looks like a
nice place, man.

I hope so.

You don't have
any family?

Not really.
No one?

I got this sister who lives in
Denver with her fourth husband.



I really appreciate
everything you've done for me,

including making up that story
about your girlfriend.

Hey, I'm sorry, man,
I didn't know what to say or do.

I guess that's
why the counseling gig

should be left to the experts.

Yeah. So you hired the reverend

just because you knew
I'd call back today?

No, not just because of that.

I'm actually trying to get him
to come to his senses as well.

I mean... I'm-I'm sorry.

Karl, I'm Davis Chapman.

We'll be spending
a lot of time together

for the next
week or so.

Why don't we, uh, grab
a cup of coffee, huh,

and start talking?

Well, I guess it's better
than killing myself.

Take it as a sign
I'm feeling better, okay, guys?

And, uh...



Good night, Karl.

So, Reverend...
when Karl gets back on his feet

checks himself out
of here, you gonna take
him back to your church?

Oh, it doesn't have
to be my church.

I didn't say my church.

And when does the guy who
I'm filling in for get back?


Mm, that's too bad,
'cause I was thinking

about doing a segment
on conspiracies.

Yeah. Good night, Reverend.

And thanks again.

Good night, Will.


Room for one more?

I thought you were sick.

I made a remarkable recovery.

May I speak
to Roxanne alone?

I don't know what to say.

Well, what do you want?

I want you to stay
Kevin's partner.


Because that's
what Kevin wants.

What do you want?

Look, I'm sorry, okay?

I know I haven't been
that friendly towards you.

I have no right to tell Kevin
who he can and cannot

be partners with,
and even though

that's not really what I did,
I know and you know

that the only reason you don't
want to be his partner anymore

is because you think
I don't like you.

You don't like me.

No matter what I do,
nothing works.

I thought we had kind of
a breakthrough with Robbie

a month ago, and here we are
back in the same spot.

So what do we do?

I know we're not
just gonna shake hands

and become friends overnight.

if you'd give me

a chance...

another chance, and let me
get to know you better,

and then you could
get to know me better,

then I think that
someday maybe I could...

Be nicer to me?

Yeah. That.

This... wasn't easy
for you, was it?

No, it wasn't.


I'll stay partners with Kevin.

But if things don't get better

between us...



I'm trying.


I love you.

Aren't you gonna say
you love me?

I would only do what
I just did for a man I loved.

Yes, I love you.

Now, kiss me
and let's play pool.

You know, I take
pity on you.

I take you out, and
how do you pay me back?

You get me kicked
out of my club;

you get my doorman
friend fired.

You totally embarrassed me.

Hey, I was lucky
I wasn't arrested.

I'm never taking
you anywhere again.


So I guess tonight was a pretty
horrible night for you, huh?

I've had worse.

I think.

I really thought there would be
girls your age at the club.

You know what?

Tonight wasn't so horrible.

I needed
to hit rock bottom,

as far as relationships
and women go,

and going out
with you to Club Minor

was like hitting rock bottom
and then digging lower.

A lot lower.

But now that I hit bottom,
I can pick myself up

and get back out there,
start dating again.

You know, I-I need
to start dating again.

But this time,
things are gonna be

different for me.

Things are gonna work out.

I'm gonna find myself
a great woman,

get into a relationship,

and a couple
of months from now,

I'm gonna look back
at being busted

at an underage club and laugh.

You got the owner's
phone number, didn't you?

Like I told ya,

luck... is not a factor.

I just wanted
to say good night.

Good night,Mom.

So, everything
worked out with Jake?

Yeah. I'm glad.

I didn't want to hurt him.

I just don't want to hang out
with him anymore.

Mm. It's hard when you're young
and when you're old.

Sometimes the people you like
don't like you back,

and it-it hurts.

Hey, someday you
might like somebody
who doesn't like you.

Did you ever like a boy
who didn't like you back?

Your father.

When we first met,

he didn't like me
the way I liked him.

I knew the second that I met him
that I wanted to marry him.

It took him a little longer
to fall in love with me.

Does that mean I could end up
marrying Jake someday?

Well, you never know.

But probably not.

Good night.

I love you.

Will called.


It felt good today, didn't it?

Doing your work, helping people.

Yeah, I was glad I was
there to help Karl,

but... I don't want to keep
helping people for a living,

which is why I don't want
to do church work anymore.

I want to move on.

It's like... I-I'm
in The Godfather.

I-I try to get out,

and... I just get pulled back in

by people who claim
to be family.

There's a reason
you get pulled back in.

Helping people
is your calling.

Eric, your church
is where you should be.

You-you know that I'm right.

You are a minister.

You're-you're not a deejay.

You're not a cook or a farmer

or a computer technician.

You're a minister.

Go back to the church.

I'll think about it.

I'll take it.
