Priest: You follow in the way of Christ?

Boyle: Uhhh...n-n-not exactly. I mean in my heart, yes, but...I’ve done a lot of...you know...kind of...you know carnal sins and a lot of, uh, drunk a lot of alcohol, and done some drugs. I’ve kind of weaseled around a lot in my life, you know, trying to get the edge all the time. But basically I would say that I’m a good-hearted person.

Priest: Ask the Lord for forgiveness...from your heart.

Boyle: From my heart, huh. If I’d known this I would have come earlier, you know, before 33 years, you know?

Priest: You should have come earlier, yes.

Boyle: I’ll come back!
