* This is a favorite scene from a favorite show. I couldn't find quotes from it anywhere on the Internet, so I thought I'd put it up to share with people who are already fans and maybe interest people who haven't seen it.
Crazy beautiful JANE, who reports traffic from a helicopter, has her eye on hunky JAMES, the host of the radio station's religious program. In order to get closer to him, JANE has accepted a Friday night invitation from JAMESto a religious discussion group that he holds at his church.
JamesOK, everybody, say hi to Jane.
OthersHi Jane. Hi Jane.
JamesJane, like all of us, has a keen interest in her faith and how it relates to all aspects of her life. Don't worry Jane, it's all very informal. Don't be scared.
ManI'll just sit next to Jane then, shall I? Don't worry. I won't bite you.
JaneOh? I won't break your neck then.
JamesOK, well, we're all getting to know Jane, so have any questions for her?
Older WomanJane, I was wondering, have you been religious all your life or is it something that's happened to you quite recently?
JaneUmmm … both.
Older WomanI don't think I quite understand your answer.
JaneOh, I'm sorry. Both!
Man 2Can I just ask, what aspect of the religious experience most appeals to you?
JaneOf the religious experience? Of the many aspects of the religious experience?
JaneIs my favorite? Well … I'd have to say … God.
[lifts up her hands]
JaneHe's good, isn't He?
JamesWell, I don't think you'll get much argument out of us lot.
JaneOoh, and that was just my first go!
AndrewAh, can I ask something?
[leans forward with a lot of cleavage]You go right ahead, dear.
AndrewWhat do you think of the crisis of faith?
AndrewSometimes I findwhen my prayers seem to go unanswered and it's so very hard to find God's love in my lifethat it's difficult to keep believing that God is still a real force in the world, watching over us. I find doubt so often in my heart.
JaneYou know, [turns to James] perhaps I can help here?
JamesSure, go ahead. That's what this is all about.
[back to Andrew]What's your name?
JaneAndrew, lovely! Well, Andrew, there's something I probably better explain. God is just a made up person. You can't expect Him to be answering your prayers if He's not real, can you? That's a bit like writing to the characters of a soap opera and expecting a reply, Mr. Silly Sausage.
JamesWe are of the opinion that God is in fact real.
JaneHe's not, is He?
Man 2You don't believe in God?
JaneWell, I suppose I never found Him very realistic.
JamesWell, here we all adhere to the idea of one true, loving God, I'm afraid.
JaneOh no, that can't be right.
JaneYou see they've got different gods in different countries. You should've checked that.
JamesWell yes, obviously, there are other faiths
JaneWhat if they're like MPs? And there's different gods for different areas, and they all sort of report to a sort of head god. … Thor, or somebody.
JaneThor! The thunder god! The one with the hammer. We did him in school. He was totally my favorite. You know, I'm not that easy, but show me a muscular blonde who can control the weather, and this girl's on all fours.
JamesOK, let's move on, should we? Does anyone else got something they want to discuss?
Older WomanPerhaps we should go back to what we were discussing last week.
JamesAh yes, we had a very lively debate last week, didn't we?
JaneReally? What about?
Older WomanSex before marriage.
JaneAh! Now you're talking my language.
Older WomanWe're against it.
Older WomanA number of us feel that premarital sex is a very bad thing.
JaneWell, you're so wrong. Shagging's brilliant! Take it when you can get it is what I say.
JamesAh, Jane, there are many different views on this. Some people are happy with the idea of multiple partners. Some people, like myself, simply prefer to avoid premarital sex.
JaneWhat you don't seem to realize is
JamesIs something wrong, Jane?
