God, Lydia! Do you really

have to be so blunt?

put something like that?

Just remember the protection

and you wouldn't have to worry.

Unless, you're me and...

...you're boyfriend doesn't

believe in pre-marital sex.

LYDIA:

He doesn't believe in sex.

Looks like the game

is finally over.

Come on guys, let's go.

It's cold, let's go.

Let's go Tony, it's cold.

TONY:
Relax!

Take your time guys,

take your time.

Tony!

[LYDIA GIGGLING]

What's that for, Barb?

Are you saying god couldn't

afford the rent,

so they tossed him out?

[SOME FRIENDS LAUGH]

Welcome to the 21st century.

Guys, I used to go

to this church with my mom.

I was in my last year

of Sunday school,

until they closed it down.

I remember that. You even learned

all the prayers and stuff.

Oh, yeah, I was an angel, right?

Come on, Barb.

We don't need god anymore.

We didn't leave god today.

- That's right.

- Screw ya.
