- Right.

So now we know...

back roads are even less

interesting than the highways.

Maybe they've discovered music...


There are many Lord's mansions...

but there's no room

for the fornicator!

- No room!

- No room...

- for the homosexual!

- No room!

No room

for the drugs user!

No room!


Peanut butter and white bread!

There's no room

forthe college graduated!

No room for people

who watch public television.

- No room for commitments!

- Amen!


Here it is.

- I wonder how it got here.

- Not me.

It looks like this one

goes to Grand Island...

and this one

cuts up to the highway.

Where's this Gatlin that we've

been seeing the signs for?

- It's not on here.

- How come? It's gotta be.

Look out!

Hang on.

Let me check.

Let me check.

- Where? Right there?

- Yeah.

It was just a bump.

Just tty to relax.

That was an animal, right?

I gotta go back there, okay

Just stay here and tty to rest.

C'mon, buddy.

Oh God!

- Is he...

- Oh yeah.

- Oh God!

- Easy, easy. C'mon.


Don't look at him.

Now listen to me.

There's something vety wrong here.

So I want you to go back to the car

and wait for me there. Understand?

- And keep the doors locked.

- Why? Where are you going?

I'll tell you when I get back.

Just do what I say.





I'm so sorty.

- Vicky, c'mon.

- Burt!

- Easy. Calm down.

- I kneeled down next to him.

It's ok. Take it easy.

Take it easy and relax.

It's okay, understand?

You're okay.

Me and Sarah were playing in our

old house. We play there lots.

Malachai said it was forbidden.

But I think that's because nobody

ever asked him to play.

When I grow up, I'm gonna have

all the money in the world.

- Me too.

- You can't.

- Why not?

- 'Cause I'm gonna have it.
