♪ ♪

- I've been
wondering something.

From the time we learn to speak
until the day we die,

how many words does
the average person say?

I mean, we talk
and talk and talk,

filling up the Ozone,

secretly hoping that
in all those syllables,

we've said something
worth remembering.

Deep down,
we know the truth.

Most of what
we say is trash.

- Whoa, whoa, whoa.

Where do you think
you're landing, chief?

Where do you think
you're landing?

- I need to
talk to Burr.

- He's busy.

- I'll wait.

- He's never not gonna be busy
when it comes to you...

getting the brothers

a deep truth that those of us

Like the novelist
Daniel Defoe,

"I do not know which

In Oz, we do neither.

And I wanted to do
this face-to-face.

The board of elders
met yesterday

and decided to ask you

as head of
the New Church of Christ.

- The elders voted unanimously
on the day of my conviction

that they would stand behind me,
to support me no matter what.

- I know, but the scandal
has severely damaged

our fund-raising efforts.

We're loading cement;
he's pushing a pen.

He should be
slaving alongside us.

- Sowing more seeds
of discontent?

- Just telling
my friends what's what.

- Get up.

- Did I ever mention why
he threw me

out of the congregation?

Not because I threatened someone
in the name of the Lord,

but because
I disagreed with him.

He tries to silence anyone
whose opinions differ.

finish his thought.

- when I was 10, my father
was a tent revival preacher.

He called me up

I was 10 years old.

I touched the eyes of
a blind man and he was healed.

From that moment on,
I was special, famous.

Everywhere I went,
on TV...

Crowds of people
wanting to touch me.

- Wow.

That must be something.

- Fame became all that I knew,
penthouses, limousines.

When I took the money
from my congregation,

I didn't even think
that I was stealing.

It seemed like I was taking
what was rightfully mine.

Listen to me.


Pride is the worst sin

for it is pride that
separates us from God.

- Deliverance
comes from Jesus.

- Yes...

And he has humbled me.

- In order to win
your congregation back,

you must show them that
you're not their superior,

but their equal.

- How do I do that?

- By joining them
in their work.

"The labor of the righteous
tendeth to life."

- The last three words
spoken by Jesus were,

"It is finished."

Now, being
the Son of God,

He probably knew
the end was coming

and had a chance
to consider what to say.

The rest of us
don't get that luxury.

When death comes,
it's a surprise,

and we gotta improvise.

- I have to tell you, Cloutier,
you really impressed me.

You really
heeded the call.

Your followers
are tickled to death

you're helping me
build this wall.

- Please, son,
I beg you.

Think about what it is
that you're doing.

- Oh, I've thought
about this completely.

When the hacks ask
where you are, I'll say,

"I don't know.

Maybe the good reverend
ascended into heaven."


- Help!

Help, help me!

- They can't help you.
Nobody's here, remember?

- Yeah, and I paid the hacks an
extra 200 bucks to take a hike.

for all eternity.
