[SLAMS DOOR]

YOU WILL NOT BELIEVE
WHAT HAPPENED TO TO ME!



I'M DRIVING HOME, LISTENING
TO MY YODELING TAPES,

WHEN THE DRIVER BEHIND ME
STARTS FURIOUSLY HONKING HIS HORN.

I DECIDE TO BE A LADY AND
LET HIM PASS. WHAT DOES HE DO?

PULLS ALONGSIDE,

SHOUTS OBSCENITIES THAT'D
MAKE JOAN RIVERS BLUSH

AND THEN SPEEDS
OFF DOWN THE STREET.

- ROSE, I GOT MY OWN PROBLEMS.
- YOUR OWN PROBLEMS?

I CAN'T FIND MY
LUCKY HANDKERCHIEF.

- LUCKY HANDKERCHIEF?
- WHAT ARE YOU? A MYNAH BIRD?

I'M GETTING MY KIT TOGETHER FOR
A BINGO GAME AND IT'S NOT HERE.

PLAYING WITHOUT IT IS LIKE
KAREEM WITHOUT HIS GOGGLES.

I'M SORRY, SOPHIA,
I'M JUST SO UPSET.

YOU WOULD FEEL A LOT BETTER
IF YOU HAD SHOUTED BACK.

OH, I COULDN'T DO THAT. I GET SO
FLUSTERED IN THOSE SITUATIONS.



A WELL-CHOSEN GESTURE
CAN BE VERY EFFECTIVE.

SOMETHING LIKE THIS.

SOPHIA, ISN'T THAT OBSCENE?

NO. THEY MEAN, "GOOD
HEALTH," "HAVE A NICE DAY"

AND "WOULD YOU LIKE TO
SQUEEZE MY CONCERTINA?"

YOU SPENT THE
AFTERNOON TOGETHER.

HE DIDN'T ASK YOU OUT?
WHAT DID YOU DO WRONG?

- WHO DIDN'T ASK YOU OUT?
- YOU GOT A PHONE BOOK?

FRANK LEAHY, THE TEACHER I'VE
BEEN WORKING WITH ON THE YOUTH FAIR.

TWO WEEKS AND HE
HASN'T ASKED HER OUT YET.

I DON'T KNOW HIM KNOW HIM.

WE HAVE SPENT EXACTLY
TWO SATURDAY MORNINGS

BUILDING DISPLAY BOOTHS
AND PAINTING SIGNS.

WE'RE HARDLY CLOSE.

YOU COULD BE, IF YOU'D ASK HIM
OUT. HE'S TOO SHY TO ASK YOU.

MAYBE HE JUST DOESN'T LIKE HER.

THANK YOU, ROSE.

INCIDENTALLY, YOU LOOK FAT.

THE TIME FOR
SUBTLETY HAS PASSED.

IF YOU WANT THIS
MAN, ASK HIM OUT!

I DON'T KNOW. I FEEL SO AWKWARD
ASKING A MAN OUT ON A DATE.

YOU COULD INVITE HIM HERE TO
DINNER, WOULDN'T SEEM AS PUSHY.

GREAT IDEA, THEN WE
CAN ALL CHECK HIM OUT.

- I DON'T THINK I CAN DO IT.
- OF COURSE YOU CAN.

YOU BE FRANK. I'LL BE YOU. OK?

WHY, FRANK, YOU
KNOW I'VE BEEN THINKING,

THIS IS OUR THIRD SATURDAY AND I
DON'T EVEN KNOW WHAT YOU LIKE TO EAT.

COME OVER FOR DINNER
THIS SATURDAY NIGHT

AND LET ME FIND OUT WHAT...

WHETS YOUR APPETITE.

AND WHAT ARE YOU SERVING
FOR DESSERT, BLANCHE, PENICILLIN?

I'LL DO IT MY OWN WAY.

IF YOU DO, YOU'D BETTER
USE JANE FONDA'S BODY,

OTHERWISE, IT'LL BE JUST
FOUR OF US FOR DINNER.

FRANK...

FRANK, UH... I'M SORRY. I
WAS JUST GOING TO SAY

THAT THE SIGN SEEMED A
LITTLE HIGH ON ONE SIDE.

- HOW ABOUT A COFFEE BREAK?
- SURE.

WHEN YOU GET THE CHANCE,
WOULD YOU FIX THAT SIGN?

SEEMS A LITTLE HIGH ON ONE SIDE.

YEAH, SURE, FRANK.

I NOTICE A LOT OF YOUR
STUDENTS CALL YOU "FRANK."

- YOU DON'T APPROVE?
- NO. ON THE CONTRARY.

ANYTHING OTHER THAN "YO, TEACH!"

IS AN EDUCATIONAL BREAKTHROUGH.

FORMAL TITLES CAN
BE VERY INTIMIDATING.

THIS WAY, I'M JUST
ONE OF THE GUYS.

YOU THINK A LOT OF THESE KIDS.

- SO DO YOU.
- WELL, I DO, BUT...

I SENSE A SPECIAL
DEDICATION FROM YOU.

- IT'S NICE.
- THANKS, DOROTHY.

I'VE BEEN AT THIS A LONG TIME.

I KNOW THEIR FAMILIES, BEEN
TO THEIR HOMES FOR DINNER.

REALLY? YOU'VE BEEN TO
THEIR HOMES FOR DINNER?

WELL, THEY SPREAD A
NEWSPAPER ON THE FLOOR FOR ME.

I'M KIDDING. YOU SEEM SO AMAZED.

I'M NOT AMAZED. I JUST THINK
IT'S NICE THAT YOU DO THAT.

I JUST ASSUMED THAT YOU
KNEW THAT I ATE DINNER.

IT'S NICE THAT YOU GO TO
PEOPLE'S HOMES FOR DINNER.

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE
TO GO HOME WITH ME?

I MEAN, FOR DINNER. NEXT WEEK?

MY ROOMMATES WOULD
LOVE TO MEET YOU.

- WHAT'S A GOOD NIGHT?
- UH, BINGO NIGHT.

OR I'D HAVE TO INTRODUCE
YOU TO MY MOTHER.

BUT THE TABLE LOOKED FINE,
RIGHT WHERE WE ALWAYS KEEP IT.

BUT WITH HER COMPLEXION,
THOSE YELLOW GARDEN LIGHTS

MAKE DOROTHY LOOK
LIKE ERIC SEVEREID.

LOOK OUT, ST. DOMINIC'S!
SOPHIA FEELS LUCKY TONIGHT.

TONIGHT'S THE BIG
BINGO GAME, ISN'T IT?

THE BIGGEST. I GOT MY LUCKY
HANDKERCHIEF. I CAN'T LOSE.

- WHERE DID YOU FIND IT?
- IN MY BRA.

IN YOUR BRA? WHAT WAS YOUR
LUCKY HANDKERCHIEF DOING IN THERE?

I WAS BLOWING MY BREASTS, ROSE.

TO GIVE ME CLEAVAGE,
TO TURN ON THE BUTCHER

TO GET A DECENT PIECE OF VEAL.

NOW, IF YOU'LL EXCUSE ME,

THERE'S AN ELECTRIC WEED
WHACKER WITH MY NAME ON IT.

WHEN WE GO OUT THERE FOR DINNER, SIT
ON THE FAR SIDE AND I'LL SIT NEXT TO YOU.

WHY?

IN CASE SOMEBODY
WANTS TO PLAY FOOTSIE.

GEE, THAT SOUNDS LIKE FUN. I
HAVEN'T PLAYED FOOTSIE IN YEARS.

- CHARLIE NEVER...
- ROSE!

FRANK AND DOROTHY
MIGHT PLAY FOOTSIE.

OH.

OH!

- HOW DO I LOOK?
- BEAUTIFUL.

GO BACK AND CHANGE.

THAT MIGHT BE ALRIGHT FOR A
GAY FUNERAL IN NEW ORLEANS,

BUT IT'S TOO... IT'S MUCH
TOO SUBTLE FOR THIS EVENING.

PUT ON SOMETHING FLASHY.

- FLASHY. SOMETHING COLORFUL.
- THAT'S REALLY NOT ME, BLANCHE.

I KNOW, HONEY, BUT TAKE
A CHANCE. BE A WOMAN!

IT'S AN AWFUL LOT
TO ASK, BUT I'LL TRY.

GO.

ROSE, COME ON. LET'S
GO SEE ABOUT SUPPER.

DON'T YOU THINK YOU MIGHT BE
PUSHING DOROTHY A LITTLE HARD?

NO, AND I NEED ALL YOUR HELP.
SHE NEEDS YOUR HELP, TOO.

SHE WON'T HAVE TOO MANY CHANCES.

SHE DOESN'T HAVE
MY BEAUTY OR YOUR...

WE'LL HELP YOU NEXT WEEK.

THE POINT IS SHE GLOWS
EVERY TIME SHE SPEAKS HIS NAME.

DO YOU THINK DOROTHY'S IN LOVE?

WELL, SHE'S VERY
DEFINITELY SMITTEN.

WITH A LITTLE HELP FROM US, SHE CAN
FIRE CUPID'S ARROW INTO THE TUSHIE OF LOVE.

THE "TUSHIE OF LOVE"?

FOR SOME STRANGE REASON,
I FIND THAT PROVOCATIVE.

YOU REALLY OUGHT
TO DATE MORE, ROSE.

- [DOORBELL]
- THAT MUST BE HIM.

HEAT UP THE ROLLS AND
COOL YOURSELF DOWN!

GOOD EVENING.

OH. GOOD EVENING, FATHER.

THIS MUST BE AN IMPORTANT CAUSE.

DON'T YOU USUALLY MAKE
THE NUNS ASK FOR MONEY?

I'LL GET MY PURSE.

I'M FRANK. I'M HERE
TO SEE DOROTHY.

YOU'RE THE HUNK?

I MEAN... FORGIVE ME, FATHER.

UH, THAT IS, FORGIVE
MY LANGUAGE,

NOT IN YOUR OFFICIAL CAPACITY.

I'M NOT EVEN A CATHOLIC.

I'M A BAPTIST AND YOU
CAN'T FORGIVE US BAPTISTS.

SWEET JESUS, WHY AM I BABBLING?

I MEANT THAT IN
ALL DUE REVERENCE.

I NEVER TAKE THE
LORD'S NAME IN VAIN.

OH, GOD! NOW I'M
LYING TO A PRIEST.

WHY DON'T YOU COME
ON IN AND SIT DOWN.

I'M BLANCHE. WOULD
YOU GET THE DOOR?

DOROTHY'S TOLD ME A
GREAT DEAL ABOUT YOU.

WELL, SHE LEFT OUT ONE
ITTY-BITTY DETAIL ABOUT YOU.

- THAT I'M A PRIEST?
- UH-HUH.

SHE DIDN'T KNOW.

WHAT'D SHE THINK? YOU
WERE JUST A BORING DRESSER?

SHE'S JUST NEVER SEEN
ME IN CLERIC'S CLOTHING.

I DIDN'T KNOW YOU PRIESTS
COULD TAKE YOUR CLOTHES OFF.

WELL, WE DO A LOT OF
THINGS REAL PEOPLE DO.

EXCEPT FOR ONE
VERY IMPORTANT THING.

BOY, IS THAT GONNA PUT A
HITCH IN DOROTHY'S PLANS.

HELLO. I'M ROSE NYLUND.

YOU MUST BE FRANK.

- IT'S A PLEASURE TO MEET YOU.
- THANK YOU. NICE TO MEET YOU.

DOROTHY'S TALKED
ABOUT YOU FOR WEEKS.

ROSE...

EVERY TIME SHE MENTIONS
YOUR NAME, SHE GLOWS.

- ROSE...
- I THINK SHE'S VERY SMITTEN...

ROSE!

- HE'S A PRIEST, ISN'T HE?
- YES, ROSE.

I'M SO SORRY HELL
TOWN WAS CANCELED.

FRANK, I'M SORRY I...

PLEASE TELL ME
THAT'S A NEHRU JACKET.

NO, IT'S NOT.

ROSE, LET'S GO HEAT UP
THE LASAGNA. COME ON!

WHY DIDN'T YOU TELL
ME IT WAS FATHER LEAHY?

- I ASSUMED YOU KNEW.
- NO, I DIDN'T.

I MEAN, FRANKLY, I'M...

- I'M A LITTLE EMBARRASSED.
- ME, TOO.

WE CAN STILL BE
FRIENDS, CAN'T WE?

OF COURSE WE CAN.
I'M GLAD YOU'RE HERE.

YEAH, SO AM I.

YOU LOOK LOVELY TONIGHT.

I LOOK LIKE THE MOTHER
OF A SOLID GOLD DANCER.

DOROTHY, I'M SORRY ABOUT
THIS MISUNDERSTANDING.

I KNOW. I KNOW. IT'S... ALRIGHT.

OK, EVERYBODY, WE'RE READY
TO SERVE THE APPETIZERS.

COME ON, FRANK. WE'RE
EATING OUT ON THE LANAI.

NOW, WHERE AM I SUPPOSED TO SIT?

WHERE YOU DAMN WELL PLEASE.
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES IT MAKE?

GO!

OH, SO FIRST YOU WERE A TEACHER
AND THEN YOU BECAME A PRIEST.

FIRST, I WENT TO MEDICAL
SCHOOL FOR A YEAR.

THEN I QUIT AND BECAME AN
ASSISTANT BASKETBALL COACH,

THEN A TEACHER, THEN
CAME THE PRIESTHOOD.

WHAT DO YOU THINK
YOU'LL DO NEXT?

ANYBODY CARE FOR MORE COFFEE?
I HAVE ANOTHER POT BREWING.

LET ME GIVE YOU A
HAND. EXCUSE ME.

YOU KNOW, BLACK IS YOUR COLOR.

DID THAT INFLUENCE YOUR
DECISION TO ENTER THE PRIESTHOOD?

IT WASN'T THE
EVENING I'D PLANNED,

BUT IT'S TURNED OUT
TO BE PLEASANT ENOUGH.

FRANK IS A VERY
SPECIAL PERSON, ISN'T HE?

YES, HE IS AND HE OBVIOUSLY
THINKS THE SAME ABOUT YOU.

OF COURSE HE
DOES. WE'RE FRIENDS.

DOROTHY, I HESITATE
TO SAY THIS, BUT...

SOMETHING IN FRANK'S EYES SAYS HE
THINKS OF YOU AS MORE THAN JUST A FRIEND.

BLANCHE, THE MAN IS A PRIEST!

THE MAN'S A MAN.

I'M NOT LISTENING TO THIS.

I WAS IN A SIMILAR SITUATION
ONCE. HE WAS A MAN OF THE CLOTH.

TOTALLY DEDICATED TO
HIS VOCATION OR SO HE SAID,

BUT HIS EYES TOLD ME
HE WAS DEDICATED TO ME.

WE BOTH KNEW IT WAS WRONG

AND WE FOUGHT OUR FEELINGS

WITH EVERY BONE IN OUR
HOT, LONGING, WRITHING BODIES.

IT WAS JUST TOO MUCH FOR US AND
WE CHECKED INTO A BEST WESTERN.

YOU HAD AN AFFAIR WITH A PRIEST?

I SAID, "A MAN OF THE CLOTH."

HE WAS A FABRIC SALESMAN.

WE NEVER MADE LOVE AGAIN, BUT
HE DID COVER MY LA-Z-BOY FOR FREE.

WONDERFUL, BLANCHE!

SOMETHING IN HIS EYES SAYS HE
WANTS YOU, IN THE BIBLICAL SENSE.

I WILL NOT LISTEN TO THIS.

THE COFFEE'S READY.

MA, THE BINGO
GAME'S OVER ALREADY?

IT WASN'T A GAME.
IT WAS A TRAVESTY.

THEY CALL FOUR LOUSY NUMBERS
AND, BOOM - GLORIA'S A WINNER.

SIX MORE NUMBERS,

KESSLER'S JUMPING UP AND
DOWN, SHOUTING, "I'M RICH!"

OF COURSE SHE ALSO DOES THIS
ON THE BOARDWALK TO ATTRACT MEN.

I THINK THE WHOLE
THING WAS FIXED.

THAT'S WHY I'M GONNA ASK
HUGH DOWNS TO INVESTIGATE.

I GUESS THEY SENT YOU
OVER TO SHUT ME UP.

MA, THIS IS FATHER LEAHY. HE
HAD DINNER WITH US TONIGHT.

OH. PLEASED TO MEET YOU.

WHAT HAPPENED TO YOUR DATE?

FATHER LEAHY IS HER DATE.

COME HERE.

DOROTHY, SOMETIMES A
MOTHER GETS A LITTLE BUSY

AND FORGETS TO TELL HER DAUGHTER
EVERYTHING SHE NEEDS TO KNOW.

SO I'M TELLING YOU NOW. DON'T
DATE A PRIEST. IT'S BAD LUCK.

- MA...
- TRUST ME ON THIS ONE.

WHAT HAPPENED TO ME AT
BINGO TONIGHT WAS NO ACCIDENT.

I DIDN'T REALIZE HOW LATE
IT WAS. I SHOULD BE GOING.

THANK YOU, ALL. I HAD
A WONDERFUL TIME.

I'LL SEE YOU ON SATURDAY
AT THE YOUTH FAIR.

DINNER BEFORE THEN?
SOMETHING I WANT TO TALK ABOUT.

SURE. WHAT IS IT?

THANKS TO YOU, I'M ON THE VERGE
OF MAKING AN IMPORTANT DECISION.

I'M THINKING OF
LEAVING THE CHURCH.

GOOD NIGHT.

I THOUGHT I HEARD YOU UP.

I COULDN'T SLEEP. I HAD
A HORRIBLE NIGHTMARE.

TELL IT TO ME. I'M AWFUL
GOOD AT INTERPRETING DREAMS.

I WAS A CONTESTANT ON
THE DATING GAME AND I WON.

I WENT TO MEET THE
BACHELOR WHO PICKED ME

AND IT WAS THE POPE.

THAT IS A TOUGH ONE. WHERE
DID YOU GO ON THE DATE?

OH! FORGET IT, FORGET
IT. GOOD NIGHT, BLANCHE.

WHAT ARE YOU DOING? I
THOUGHT YOU WERE ASLEEP.

PROVISIONS. I FIGURED WE'D
BE UP ALL NIGHT TALKING.

- I'M GOING.
- SHE DON'T FEEL LIKE TALKING.

BUT I GOT CHOCOLATE
MACADAMIA-NUT CHEESECAKE

AND RUM-RAISIN ICE CREAM.

OH, ALRIGHT. START
CUTTING. YOU SCOOP.

AW, THAT'S MY GIRL.

DID YOU DECIDE WHAT
YOU'RE GONNA DO?

NO.

OH, MY LUCK! THE FIRST REALLY
WONDERFUL GUY I'VE MET IN A LONG TIME

AND HE TURNS OUT TO HAVE A
MORE SERIOUS INVOLVEMENT.

- WITH WHOM?
- PAM DAWBER!

THE CHURCH.

OR HE DID UNTIL HE MET ME.

TAKE THE RELIGIOUS ASPECT
OUT OF THIS AND IT'S ROMANTIC.

GIVING UP EVERYTHING FOR THE WOMAN
HE LOVES, LIKE THE DUKE OF WINDSOR.

OR THE STORY OF ROSE
AND CHARLIE NYLUND.

WHEN I THINK OF ONE,

I AUTOMATICALLY
THINK OF THE OTHER.

WHEN CHARLIE AND
I STARTED DATING,

I FELT HIS FOLKS DIDN'T LIKE ME.

THAT'S WHEN I DECIDED TO
GET TO THE BOTTOM OF THINGS

AND THE ANCIENT FEUD BETWEEN THE
NYLUNDS AND THE GORKLEKNABYGENS.

THAT WAS MY
MOTHER'S MAIDEN NAME.

GORKLEKNABYGEN?

ORIGINALLY, IT WAS
GORKLEKNABYGEN-HOFFSTADLERFEIL.

BUT THEY SHORTENED IT.

MOST OF MY MOTHER'S FAMILY
WERE IN SHOW BUSINESS.

ANYWAY, WHEN CHARLIE TOLD THEM WE
WERE GONNA GET MARRIED, THEY FORBADE IT.

THEY SAID THEY'D DISOWN
HIM IF HE MARRIED...

- [BOTH] A GORKLEKNABYGEN.
- [ROSE] RIGHT.

HE'D LOSE HIS SHARE OF THE
FAMILY TILE GROUT FORTUNE.

HE DIDN'T CARE. HE TOLD THEM
HE LOVED ME MORE THAN GROUT.

MUST HAVE BEEN A TOUGH
CHOICE FOR OLD CHARLIE.

I THOUGHT I HEARD VOICES. ONLY
TWO OF THEM ARE GOD-FEARING.

MA, GET OFF MY BACK.
I FEEL BAD ENOUGH.

WHAT ABOUT ME? 81 YEARS,
I'VE EATEN FISH ON A FRIDAY,

EVEN WHEN THE POPE
SAID I DIDN'T HAVE TO.

I GO TO MASS, I LIGHT
CANDLES, AND FOR WHAT?

TO BE FLUSHED DOWN THE TOILET, BECAUSE MY
DAUGHTER GOES OUT WITH FATHER HAPPY PANTS.

MA, YOU'RE NOT
MAKING IT ANY EASIER.

LOOK, DOROTHY, IN THE END,

ONLY YOU CAN DECIDE
WHAT'S RIGHT FOR YOU.

WHATEVER DECISION
IT IS, I'LL STAND BY YOU.

- THANKS, MA.
- JUST REMEMBER,

MAKE THE WRONG DECISION,
YOU'LL BURN IN HELL FOREVER.

SLEEP TIGHT, PUSSYCAT.

[CLEARS THROAT]

[MAN COUGHS]

I'M NOT HERE TO CONFESS,
I DID THAT A DAY AGO.

AT MY AGE, HOW MUCH CAN I
SIN? I HAD AN IMPURE THOUGHT?

I'D KILL TO HAVE AN
IMPURE THOUGHT.

THAT WOULD BE TWO SINS.

BUT NOW I'M TELLING
YOU YOUR BUSINESS.

LET ME GET TO THE REAL POINT.
IT'S ABOUT YOU AND MY DAUGHTER.

I KNOW EVERYTHING AND,
FRANKLY, I'M NOT THRILLED.

IF YOU WANNA LEAVE
THE PRIESTHOOD,

THAT'S BETWEEN
YOU AND THE VATICAN,

BUT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
DOROTHY, BEFORE YOU GET CARRIED AWAY.

SO, FRANK, HAVE YOU
MADE YOUR DECISION?

I CAN SERVE THE CHURCH BETTER
AS A TEACHING PRIEST AT ST HELEN'S,

INSTEAD OF A PARISH PRIEST HERE.

WELL, WE'RE GONNA
MISS YOU AROUND HERE.

LOOK, I KNOW PRIESTS ARE
MEN AND THEY HAVE URGES.

WHAT IS IT, LUST? IT'LL PASS.

I DO WITHOUT. YOU
GET USED TO IT.

GET CABLE TV.

- LOTS OF LUCK.
- THANKS.

- FRANK.
- DOROTHY?

- WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?
- FREE TIME BETWEEN CLASSES.

SO YOU DROVE 18
MILES ACROSS TOWN?

OK. I WANTED TO TALK TO
YOU. I DIDN'T WANT TO WAIT.

THE THOUGHT THAT I MIGHT BE RESPONSIBLE
FOR THE DECISION YOU'RE MAKING IS TOO MUCH.

THIS IS CRAZY. IT'S NOT LIKE YOU
PUSHED ME TOWARDS THIS DECISION.

YOU DIDN'T KNOW I
WAS THINKING ABOUT IT.

BLANCHE DID. SHE
SAW IT IN YOUR EYES.

- MY EYES?
- YOU'RE A VERY SPECIAL PERSON.

I KNEW THE MOMENT I MET YOU
AND YOU FELT THE SAME ABOUT ME.

I CAN'T TELL YOU HOW
FLATTERING THAT IS.

I MEAN, AT THIS STAGE
OF A WOMAN'S LIFE,

TO HAVE SOMEONE INSTANTLY
FEEL THAT SPARK FOR HER

IS A DREAM COME TRUE.

MAYBE IN THE DREAM
HE WOULDN'T BE A PRIEST,

BUT THAT DOESN'T MAKE IT
ANY THE LESS FLATTERING,

BUT IT DOES MAKE IT A
LOT MORE COMPLICATED.

SO, FRANK, YOU CANNOT
GO THROUGH WITH THIS.

- DOROTHY...
- NO, NO, NO.

IT'S A MISTAKE THAT
WE WOULD BOTH REGRET

FOR THE REST OF OUR LIVES.

NO MATTER HOW STRONGLY YOU FEEL,

I CANNOT LET YOU LEAVE
THE PRIESTHOOD FOR ME.

WHAT?

I UNDERSTAND HOW
HURT YOU MUST FEEL.

[CHUCKLES]

ALRIGHT, MAYBE I DON'T
UNDERSTAND EXACTLY.

I'M SORRY, DOROTHY, BUT
OUR RELATIONSHIP SEEMS TO BE

- ONE MISUNDERSTANDING
AFTER ANOTHER.
- MISUNDERSTANDING?

I'M NOT LEAVING THE PRIESTHOOD.

I'M LEAVING THE
CHURCH, THIS CHURCH.

BUT... WELL...

IF YOU'RE NOT LEAVING
THE PRIESTHOOD,

THEN I JUST MADE A
COMPLETE ASS OF MYSELF.

EXCUSE MY LANGUAGE, FATHER,
BUT, AS AN ENGLISH TEACHER,

I CAN TELL YOU THAT'S THE
MOST APPROPRIATE DESCRIPTION.

- NO, IT'S NOT.
- HOW CAN YOU SAY THAT?

I CREATED AN ENTIRE
RELATIONSHIP IN MY IMAGINATION.

IT WASN'T IN YOUR IMAGINATION.

THERE IS SOMETHING
SPECIAL BETWEEN US.

WE APPRECIATE EACH OTHER.

YOU COULD HELP ME SEE WHERE I COULD
DO MOST GOOD, AS A TEACHING PRIEST.

WELL, IT'S TAKEN
ME A LITTLE WHILE,

BUT I THINK I'VE GOT IT.

ALRIGHT. LISTEN, YOUR
SILENCE IS DEAFENING.

I DIDN'T WANNA WHIP THIS
ONE OUT, BUT I HAVE NO CHOICE.

SHE'S BEEN DIVORCED.

YOU KNOW THE RULEBOOK.
WE'RE TALKING ETERNITY HERE.

ARE WE STILL ON FOR
DINNER THURSDAY NIGHT?

YES. JUST SO THERE WON'T BE
ANOTHER MISUNDERSTANDING,

WHO IS BUYING?

- HOW ABOUT A DUTCH TREAT?
- GREAT. SEE YOU THURSDAY.

DOROTHY, THANKS.

AH.

IT'S LIKE HE DIDN'T
HEAR A WORD I SAID!
