...find yourself clean on the outside...

...the water has been drained.

Objects such as coins,

safety pins, stones,

cause extensive damage

and must not be placed in the machine.

These days,

you can form a congregation

simply based

on washing-machine instructions.

Always consult the care instructions

on the clothes.

You see, without faith,

it's difficult to be controlled.

And I didn't like being controlled.

Not by anybody.

That made me a big problem

for the Ministry.

I'm the one and only non-believer

in Meanwhile City.

I'd been investigating a nasty little faith

known as Duplex Ride.

Their leader called himself

The Individual.

He was one of the most dangerous

I'd come across.

Egocentric and insanely deluded.

The Individual had abducted a young girl

into Duplex Ride.

For what purpose?

Somebody's god only knew.

God bless you.

How's tricks?

Whisky, please.

- Straight.

- Coming up.

Hot outside today.

He here?

You're sure you wanna stay

for this drink?

Think I shouldn't?

He's in the back.

- Thanks.

- No problem.

Your god bless you.

Wormsnakes -

my eyes and ears on the street.

Ha, ha!

Mr Preest!

Looking...

You're looking well.

You know how I feel

about public appearances.

Just tell me what you got.

Mr Preest, information...

is very hard to come by these days,

let alone having any faith in it,

you know what I mean?

Snakes,

I'm running out of patience.

You don't understand!

If he finds out that I...

It'll be nothing to what

I'll do if you don't.

The girl, Snakes!

Where is she?

The girl, she's dead.

- Please!

- The Individual?

I don't know! I swear, I don't know!

- Did he do it himself?

- I don't know the... the d- d- details.

You know, she didn't... didn't suffer.

That's all I know.

- Just tell me where he is.
