Sarah, the bus just pulled up,

you have got about 3 seconds!

I'm right here.

Here you go, Peanut.

Weak bread, no mustard

and there is a big surprise for dessert.

You mean, an apple?

Surprised? I've packed your

warm pajamas and your flashlight

and don't talk back to Stephanie's mother,

even if Stephanie does it.

I won't...

Have fun!

You know, how much mommy loves you!

And I love mommy back!

Now, go, hug your dad!

Good morning, Rachel!

"You are invited to a dinner with Jesus Christ..."


Rachel, could you come in here, please?

Be right there...


Do you know,

how this got on my keyboard?

I didn't see anybody coming in here...

What is it?

Apparently, some kind of joke...

No, All it says is:

"You are invited to a dinner

with Jesus Christ, Pepino's, 7 o'clock."

Here we are!

Nikki! Hi!

I'm Jesus.


Excuse me, am I supposed to know you?

Good question.

Yes, the answer is: yes.

I'm sorry, as far as I can remember,

I have never met you.

That is true!

Ok, let's just start over:

Your name is...


My family called me Yeshua.

Your family. From...


I don't thing, there is much I can actually

say to convince you that I am Jesus.

Oh, there is one true statement...

I thought, they went through your hands...


The spikes were driven through my wrist...

So where do we go from here?

Good question.

Where do you wanna go?

I'm glad, you showed up, Nikki.

I've enjoyed our time together.

I have, too...

You know, when I tell people, that I had dinner

with Jesus, they are gonna think, I'm crazy.

Then maybe, you shouldn't tell them...

This morning...

Sarah, it's almost time to go!



I'll be right down!

You gonna miss your plane...

I'm on the phone!

Hi, could you ring Mr. Newman

I just wanted to ask...

What? Oh, I wouldn't miss this for the world!

I'm supposed to land in Portland this evening.

I'm really looking for see you in the campus.

Has there anybody worked yet on my application?

Oh! What about my portfolio? Was it...?

I'm sorry, I know. You get hundreds...

Well, I guess,

I'll see you sometime tomorrow then.

Thanks so much, bye.

No... That's ok. I'm already running late...

I can find everything.


Yes, I remembered.

No, but dad gave my 50 dollars

this morning, and I've got my ATM card...

Mom, I will...

I said, I will!

Ok, look, I'm next in the line to the ticket counter,

I gotta go, I will call you, when I land.

Yeah. You, too.

Alright, we have you flying into Dallas

and then on to Portland.

Just one bag today?

Just one.

I just need to see your ID

and have you on your way.

Stuck between two guys...

Excuse me.

Not a thing to read...


What did I do?!

What? Oh, Steph.

I'm sorry, I thought you were...

Never mind... What's up?

Are you still on the airport?

No, I'm on the plane.

We are getting ready to pull away from the gate.

Are you excited?

Steph, I have never been so glad

to get away from mom and dad in my life.

Because of the fight you guys had last night?

They just didn't let me a breathe

with this religious stuff...

I barely said two words them this morning.

Does it say, "it's on sale" ?!

Well, I couldn't believe,
