- What?

- I'm sure they're looking for you.

- Who's looking for us?

- The monastery, your fellow priests.

Yeah, I'm sure they're looking for us.

What, are you missing

morning prayers?

Yeah, we're missing the whole

program. What do you care?

I don't care a damn thing. I told you, it's

all superstition, far as I'm concerned.

That's fine.

Now you just drop us off at the town.

I'll tell you what else.

You get people worked up.

You get people worked up over that

shrine of yours, that Weeping Virgin.

We'll get out here.

Won't be one more minute,

I'll have you down.

No, we'll get out here.

Well, I could use your help...

carry my deer to the butcher.

I'll tell you what,

you go down to the garage...

and we'll come down

and help you carry your deer for you.

Why don't you just come with me?

We need a moment

to compose our thoughts.

If it weren't for you,

I'd never have killed that deer.

Well, thank you for your courtesy.

God bless you and all that.

- Can you swim, Jimmy?

- No.

Neither can I.

- You think Bobby made it, Neddy?

- Not like this, he didn't.

Gotta ditch these togs.

Come on.

What are you gonna do

on free street, Neddy?

I'm gonna do it all, pally,

and I'm gonna do it again.

And I'm gonna get

two of the best of everything...

and anybody muck with me,

they're going down!

Come on.


I wonder what happened to Bobby.

I wonder if he got across.

What happened, happened, Jim.

Maybe they got him back.

I'm not going back there.

That's right, we're not going back.

- We look like a couple of Hoosiers.

- That's right, let's go.

Okay, let's go.

Coins in the pocket.

Coins in the pocket, that's good luck.

- That's good luck, don't you think?

- Right.

- Oh, God.

- It's okay. It's gonna be okay.

I can't go back there.
