Yes, probably.

Ours is not a gray world.

Under the bright

light of truth,

it's a world of

clear contrasts.

Black and white,

good and evil,

right and wrong.

There is always a choice.

But with faith,

the choice is an easy one.

What our church

has done here...

What you have done here...

over the past two weeks...

is clearly right,

undeniably good.

Just look at Jessie's

photographs.

You tell me,

is it not in the smiling

face of a child...

that we find the true wonder

of God's grace?

So, tomorrow,

as we set off...

on our long journeys

back home...

You sure you don't wanna fly?

It's not too late.

Now I think it's time to...

reflect on this

final thought...

It's only six days.

When you find yourself

in the darkness of despair,

and you're struggling

to get back...

into the clear light...

of God's truth,

remember what you

learned here...

about the simple

power of compassion.

When you light a lamp

for someone else,

you brighten your

own path, too.

Honey, come on.

Let's go.

Nyet.

Hey, there, little snoop.

Shit. Roy.

Oh, sorry. Just wanted to see

if you wanted to get...

some 'shashlyken galoopsie.'

'Galoopsie'? What's that?

Oh, wait.

Excuse me.

Excuse me?

That toilet's not working.

Excuse me.

Hey, let me take care of this.

Uh..., ma'am.

Uh... T for toilet. Toilet.

'Toileten.'

No, no.

She thinks I meant tea.

No, ma'am. Uh, toilet.

'Toileten.'

No, no, no...

I'll have a beer.

- The missus will have a Coke.

- Coke.

- Thanks.

- Thank you.

Is it necessary to smoke

while we're eating?

We're not eating yet, Roy.

- It affects my

appetite when you're...

Well, I'll blow it this way.

Just blow it in...

They like to search

between stations...

so the rats cannot jump ship.

'The rats'?

Drug dealers.

Oh.

Hey, there, little fella.

Did he scare you, sweetie?

Not really.

Best not to tangle

with the police in China...

and Russia.

Especially in Russia.

I know a man

who was detained in Bratsk...

for 28 days,

because his name had

been misspelled...

on the visa.

They demanded 5,000 U.S.

Of course, he

refused to pay...

out of principle.

What happened?

He paid...

with two toes from

his right foot.

You mean, the police...

Oui, monsieur.

The police.

My compliments.

Bon voyage...

and good luck.

He was just putting us on.

No, I'm telling you,

that's how it is.

- It's like the wild,

wild East out here.

Shit. There she is.

Bonsoir, mademoiselle.

Oh, God, no.

# Love #...

- How do you turn it off?

- I don't know.

- Ask the bitch.

- Oh, let's just make do.

# Think of me,

babe, whenever #...

# Some sweet-talkin'

girl comes along #...

# Singin' her song #...

# Don't mess around

You just #...

# Gotta be strong #...

- # Just stop #

- # Stop #...

# 'Cause I really

love you #...

# Stop #...

# I've been thinkin'

of you #...

# Look in my heart

and let love #...

# Keep us together #...

- You're drunk.

- No, I'm not.

Yes, you are.

- So what?

- # You #...

# You belong to me now #...

# Ain't gonna set

you free now #

Hey. No, no...

# Talkin' me down #...

# Here with your heart...

and you won't

hear a sound #...

- # Just stop #

- I want you.

- # 'Cause I really love you #

- Oh, Roy. Roy, Roy.

Wait. Wait.

What? I don't know

where they are.

Are they in your wallet?

I just thought maybe this once

we could leave it to fate.

Not this again.

Not now. Come on.

- # When the others

turn you off #

For Pete's sake.

# Who'll be

turnin' you on #...

# I will, I will, I will #...

- It's okay.

- # I will #...

# Be there to

share forever #...
