I always dreamed of becoming a priest.
I was two years out of Seminary when they gave me a partner,
A loose cannon, with unorthodox methods
we worked together to extract confessions out of some bad people
Saving their souls from eternal damnation
and bringing them back into the warmth of God's light
but at what cost?
I'll never talk!
I want to speak to my lawyer.
I want my phone call
We're in the basement of a goddamn church,
you don't get a phone call
Blackwell shines a light in the parishioner's eyes
if you don't confess your sins so help me god I will return you to the earth
ashes to ashes, dust to dust
Blackwell, you need to cool it.
Take a step outside for a moment
Now look, you can talk to me
this can all be over whenever you want it to be
Oh I see how it is
you're playing good priest, bad priest
trying to get me to crack
I know you can't keep holding me
I want to speak with my lawyer NOW and I'm not saying anything else.
Gray joins Blackwell
we need to change tactics
let's give him an extended baptism
waterboarding is NOT part of God's plan
yeah? you think it's part of God's plan to let his soul rot in hell for eternity?
a little torture now, or an eternity of torture later
just look at the big picture
Let me talk to him, I know that I can get through to him
Gray returns to the interview
You sure don't look like my lawyer
Look, we know what you did
you broke into the church during mass
and stole the Eucharist
those aren't just little crackers
those are the BODY of CHRIST
maybe I did, maybe I didn't
The only question I have for you is why.
why did you do it?
Were you performing some sort of satanic ritual?
NO! I mean, I don't know what you're talking about.
but I would never do something like that
I'm a devout Catholic
I would think, if I ate them all
all 350 crackers
maybe it would bring me closer to god.
maybe I could finally see what I've been missing
what God wants me to do.
And did you find your answer?
Blackwell returns to the interview
So is that it then? was that your confession.
Tell us, please.
If you really want to do what God wants you to do,
You need to confess your sins
and ask for forgiveness.
Dear god, I'm sorry.
What can I do?
Go home. Sit down with a rosary.
and say 700,000 hail marys
But that'll take him at least ten years!
No, it's fine.
It's what I deserve
It won't even begin to scratch the surface of what I did.
thank you Father Blackwell
The parishioner leaves
I need a drink.
We have a little communion wine left over
