Priest: - Who's that?

Priest - Oh, Jesus. Well, he did in many ways, yes.
Boy- Did you see him?
Priest - Well, not exactly, no.
Boy - But... you're working for him.
Priest - I am. Doing the best I can.
Boy - Do you get paid for it?
Priest - Well, it's more a payment of the spiritual kind, Maurice.
Boy - Oh, right.

Boy - I don't think so.
Priest - Well, you never know.
Boy - I don't think I could work for someone I'd never met, and not get paid for it.
