Thomas (over the phone, the whole time): "True Church, Nebrahoma, good morning! This is Bishop Thomas Reed, how can I help you?"
Isaiah: "Morning Thomas, Isaiah here. How are you doing?"
Thomas: "Isaiah! We missed you at the morning service! Is everything alright?"
Isaiah: "Yes ... and no. That's why I am calling, actually. I'd like to stay home for a while if that's okay."
Thomas: "Oh? Did you come down with something? I hear the flu is going around again this summer."
Isaiah: "No, I'm fine. But to be honest ... I need some time off, a bit of room to breathe, if you know what I mean."
Thomas: "Is something bothering you? If you want to talk in person I can cancel my appointments, you know I'm here for you!"
Isaiah (sighs): "Oh ... I really appreciate that, but ... no thanks. I just have to be alone for a while and get my thoughts together."
Thomas: "Is this about... us? Are you still having doubts?"
Isaiah: "Thomas, you know that I love you with all my heart .. But you know as well as me that it's wrong! I mean, the whole thing between you and me. How can we teach the word of God, and at the same time commit one of the worst sins against the Lord himself?"
Thomas: "I absolutely understand you, Isaiah. I have my doubts, too. But at the same time, don't we both devote our whole lives and souls to our heavenly Father? Did you not lead hundreds of lost sheep into his gentle care? I am sure this will weigh tenfold against our worldly flaws. And nobody needs to know, except for Him!"
Isaiah: "I've always tried to be faithful to the Lord. And I believe we both have a great future ahead of us, and lead even more people to salvation. But ... I can't live with this burden of guilt on my shoulders. How can I teach one thing, and do the other? How can I be a role model, when in reality I am even more of a sinner than they are?"
Thomas: "We are all sinners, Brother. It's part of our plight as God's creation. If we try hard enough and show how much we worship Him, he will forgive us our sins, and welcome us to paradise!"
Isaiah: "I know the teachings of Jesus Christ, Thomas ... And I am sure you will be sent to Heaven when our final judgement comes. You run the state's biggest Mega-Church! You are leading a community of thousands, spreading the good word all across Nebrahoma. You make up for your sins every day. But what about me? I am neither a priest nor a missionary. The best I managed to do is get a PhD in Theology and write a book about the rapture that nobody wants to read! It makes my heart bleed to say this, but this will be my last call. Our relationship has to end. It's against the will of God!"
Thomas: "Don't give up Isaiah! God moves in mysterious ways, and I will personally make sure nobody will ever ...."
Isaiah: "Please ... I can't take it anymore! I need to come to terms with what's wrong with me and find forgiveness before the Lord! I hope I can come back one day. Farewell, Thomas ..."
Thomas: "No, wait, don't hang up! Before you go, please give me one more chance! I can help you find your way back to God!"
Isaiah: "I don't know ..."
Thomas: "Listen ... I know you are going through a rough time, and if you need some time away from the church - or from me - we can arrange that. And at the same time, you can prove yourself worthy of the Father's forgiveness."
Thomas: "I just had an idea, but hear me out. I heard that a while back, the old sanatorium in Madison had to close because of financial troubles. Why don't you move to Clay county and help rebuilding it? We could start a business that allows you to help save many poor souls every day, without becoming a priest or a missionary! Like, some sort of rehabilitation center. This is a wealthy church, I can fund it for you! You can lead drug victims to the right path, teach the Lord's word and bring them back under His protection! And my Church will be happy to welcome them as new members of the congregation and provide all the aftercare they could ever wish for. What do you think?"
Isaiah: "Clay county is at the other end of the country ..."
Thomas: "Didn't you just say, you needed some alone time? I'd rather know you're far away but doing well than lose you forever. And if this is what it takes to help you find your way, so be it. Get to heal others and yourself at the same time. It's your opportunity to show your devotion and willingness to give anything for the love of God."
Isaiah: "Phew ... that's a lot to take in at once."
Thomas: "Take your time, Isaiah. Take the rest of the week off, and I will arrange the rest. It's your decision if you want to go, and when."
Isaiah (suddenly strangely elated): "Thank you Thomas ... you don't know how much this means to me! I will make sure to live up to True Church's great name! I will do good!"
Thomas: "The Lord shall reward you for your good deeds."
Isaiah: "Yes. Would you mind if I come in tomorrow morning so we can talk about the details?"
Thomas: "Sure, why not."
Isaiah: "Thank you, Thomas. See you tomorrow then. Bye!"
phone hang up
Isaiah: "And even if this may be the last time we see each other ... I'll make sure we will meet again in heaven, when all our sins are forgiven! I swear by God!"

Cooper: "No, the Demön HünterZ. We're here for an audition!"
Isaiah: "An ... audition?"
Poison: "You've got an ad in the newspaper. Remember?"
Isaiah: "Oh yes, of course. You're hired!"
Cooper: "Umh ... don't you want to hear us play first?"
Isaiah: "I suppose you know the standards?"
Poison: "Uhmm ..."
Cooper: "Eh, uh, yes, of course!"
Isaiah: "Great! I am going to conduct a very important service today, and it will be so much more ... uplifting with proper music!"
PRE-3201 - Fox: "Cool! What about our fee?"
Isaiah: "Today will be your trial run. If that goes well, we can talk rates!"

Poison: "What the hell did you just agree to?"
PRE-3202 - Fox: "An unpaid gig! Great negotiation skills Coop, I just *love* working for free!"
Cooper: "It's not unpaid, think of all the exposure!"
PRE-3203 - Fox: "You can expose yourself to my arse!"
Cooper: "No seriously, I just wanted him to leave us alone. And in case it didn't come across the first time, I really appreciate you coming with us. They wouldn't have let us in without an organ player."
PRE-3204 - Fox: "Remember, I'm doing this for Alice, and not for you. Gosh, look at this ... thing. This organ looks like it hasn't been played in years. Time to blow out the cobwebs."
Fox turns around to face the organ and plays a short silly thing on the organ

MUS-3205 - Music Cue 05
Greg flies towards Poison, who catches him, and immediately takes him in a strangle hold
Cooper: "So you thought there were no witnesses, eh? You forgot that Haze can see everything that Alice can see! And she told us exactly what you did!"
Greg: "She didn't see what really happened! I couldn't tell her"
Poison: "Why should we believe you this time?"
Greg: "Because in a few minutes Dr. Isaiah is about to go fully Jim Jones on this place! And if we want to get out of here alive, we will have to work together!"
Poison: "Cool story, bro!"
Greg: "Someone called the police! They surrounded the building and because of that, shit is going to seriously hit the fan! It wasn't you, was it? Because this really did all of us a huge disservice!"
Poison: "We're goddamn punks! Do we look like people who'd call the cops?"
Cooper: "Except when someone's blocking our parking space."
Poison: "That doesn't count. Traffic cops aren't REAL cops."
PRE-3206 - Fox: "GUYS!"
Greg: "Well, it doesn't matter anyway. They're here, and Isaiah immediately went bonkers. He thinks the end time has come, and he's poisoned the mass wine! He wants them all go to heaven before the SWAT team comes in and destroys his life's work! He put the entire building on lock-down. You were incredibly lucky to still get in here before that."
Cooper: "It keeps getting better and better."
Greg: "I can prove it!"

some fog where Audrey used to be
Greg puts the wine back
Greg: "I left the room to check out a noise in the hallway, and ran right into Isaiah, and from his reaction it was crystal clear he knew what had happened earlier! So I played along and pretended I'm still on his side. What else was I supposed to do? I swear, by my life, I want to help Alice as much as you do! I owe it to her!"
Cooper: "Then I suggest you walk it like you talk it. Take us to her. Now."
Greg: "Believe me, if I'd had the chance to get back to her, I would have. They're dressing everyone up for the big show right now."
Cooper: "They're doing WHAT?"
MUS-3207 - Music Cue 07
Greg: "Isaiah wants Alice and Rose to be the first to go. It's his twisted way of taking revenge. Though I'm sure he's going to sell it as a huge act of kindness. After all, the world's going to end today!"
PRE-3207 - Fox: "Double shit."
Cooper: "Shit times infinity."
Poison: "I guess that means we'll have to wing it."
Greg: "Nobody here knows you. We can use that to our advantage and take them by surprise."
Poison: "But what kind of surprise?"
Cooper: "Isaiah doesn't look very strong. I'm pretty sure I could knock him out before he realizes what's hit him."
Greg: "That would totally work! If it wasn't for his 150 God-fearing disciples in the room who believe more in him than in Jesus Christ!"
Cooper: "You're a real party-pooper Greg, do you know that?"
Greg: "The only chance I see is to delay the ritual as much as we can until the SWAT team comes in."
Cooper: "While somehow preventing anyone from drinking the Cool Aid."
Poison: "Well, we do have one critical advantage against Isaiah."
Greg: "Which is?"
MUS-3208 - Music Cue 08
Poison: "We are much, much louder."
Cooper: "Of course! Demön HünterZ - are you ready for some mayhem?"
PRE-3208 - "Oh for fox sake. Not again."
Poison: "Don't worry, It's a lot more fun if it's intentional!"
Cooper: "Haze! Can you keep an eye on the wine please?"
Haze (off): "Sure thing!"
Greg: "Haze? Where the hell are you hiding?"
Haze (off in ): "Over here."

PRE-3209 - Everyone: "Amen!"
Isaiah: "I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the abyss, and locked and sealed it over him. I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge. And I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded because of their testimony about the word of God. They had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life and reigned with Christ a thousand years."
MUS-3210 - Music Cue 10
Isaiah: "Together we've walked the stony path towards a life of righteousness and purity, for we must all appear before the judgement seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad. Even though for some of us, the end of that path might not be near, this is as far as we will get.
MUS-3211 - Music Cue 11
Isaiah: "So let us celebrate the Lord's supper for the last time.

Cooper carries the single drum around his neck
Greg: "Oh yeah, he's right, it's right here in the script. I didn't expect we'd have a band tonight, so I totally forgot about it."
Isaiah: "I think we can skip the song."
Poison: "No way! We're about to go to heaven, this is the most important gig of our lives!"
Cooper: "Yeah, what will Jesus think when we step up to the pearly gates without getting to play the final song for him!"
Isaiah (rolls eyes): "All right, all right, do what you must."
MUS-3212 - Music Cue 12
Poison: "Alice? Would you like to sing this last song with us?"
Alice turns around
Alice: "This last ... OH! Yes, of course. It would be a great honor!"
PRE-3210 - Rose: "What's happening?"
Alice: "Are you ready to go?"
PRE-3211 - Rose: "Yes, I am ready now."
