Catch.

Catch.

Damien.

I have dreams...

... of a rose...

... and of falling down

a long flight of steps.

"A light shall shine upon this day,

for the Lord has been born unto us.

And he is called Wonderful.

God. The Prince of Peace."

Dockside Hunter, sweep completed.

Negative finding.

Roger, River. Repeat, acknowledge.

"Peace, I give you.

My peace, I leave you.

As the world gives, do I give to you.

Let not your heart be troubled."

Proceeding northeast,

approximate location near...

"The Lord is my light and my salvation.

Whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the defender of my life."

- How did I do on my theology quiz?

- Change your name to Rajneesh.

- Really?

- "God is like a power mower"?

No kidding.

- Father, everything's relative.

- Is it?

- Or, maybe not.

- I like a man who knows his mind.

Well, that's it. I gotta go now.

I'm driving to Philly.

- Speed kills.

- Who's to say?

Not me.

Father, you mentioned a Damien Karras

in your prayer for the dead.

Yes, I did.

Isn't he the one who died

in a fall on those steps?

Yes. 15 years ago today.

- I hear...

- Get lost, will you?

All right, all right. I am in flight.

There's more potatoes.

Could you pass the salt? Thank you.

Joey, what did you say

that offended Tom Lowery?

- He's our biggest benefactor.

- Oh, yes.

What did you say to him?

"Jesus loves you. Everyone else

thinks you're an asshole."

- Good morning, John.

- My back aches.

- Do we have to have our own Olympics?

- Any plans today?

- I'm watching It's a Wonderful Life.

- Very nice.

- Seen it 37 times.

- That's commendable.

- Do you have a favorite picture?

- The Fly.

- You going alone or with keepers?

- With Bill Kinderman.

- The cop?

- Yeah.

Every year on this day he gets

depressed, so I try to cheer him up.

I can't believe you said that.

What kind of world is this?

Are you an animal?

Do you know what Macbeth is about?

It's a play about the numbing

of the moral sense.

I tell Ryan we have nothing to go on.

He says, "Win some, lose some."

You're a racist. Did you know that?

The police exam asks, "What are rabies

and what do you do for them?"

Ryan said,

"Rabies are Jewish priests...

...and I would do anything

I could for them."

- What was the murder weapon, Stedman?

- I'd be guessing.

If not us, who? If not now, when?

All right. Something like

garden shears, maybe.

- We're abandoned.

- I didn't get you.

I was signaling beings on Mars.

Sometimes they answer.

Funny.

Are you enjoying your luxury cruise

aboard the Patna, Lord Jim?

Telex Richmond right away and urgently

for the file on the Gemini Killer.

- The Gemini Killer's dead.

- Who was speaking to you?

- He's dead.

- He should live so long.

- The autopsy? When, please?

- Tomorrow.

And tomorrow, and tomorrow.

I am leaving you. Ryan, Stedman,

go home. Go home to your families.

Talk about wops.

- Starving?

- Not really. Just some coffee.

- You've been up since 5:00 a.m.

- I have this.

- How was Virginia?

- Neat. We stopped at a diner.

Instead of potatoes,

they served Mama grits.

So she says, "These Jews are crazy."

They're all wackos.

Next, they'll wanna eat papaya.

- My God.

- How was your day?

Our trackers at long last brought in

Mushkin, the Georgetown terrorist...

...who breaks into people's homes

and completely redecorates.

- You okay, Bill?

- Hi, Daddy.

- And goodbye?

- Off to dance class.

- Pocahontas with the hair.

- Watch out for red shoes.

- You're home now.

- No, I gotta go cheer up Father Dyer.

What are you doing out here? Founding

an order called "Lurking Fathers"?
