    • Shelly: (to Randi) We'll get you absolved, I promise. If this doesn't look like it's gonna take, we'll go to Anchorage and try again.

    • Shelly: Do I get a real priest? No. I get this dud, some smoke-ring blowing, arm-wrestler with a rip in his pants.

    • A Wing And A Prayer Meaning:- In poor condition, but just managing to get the job done. This phrase originated from a 1943 song Coming in on a Wing and a Prayer by Harold Adamson and Jimmy McHugh. 'Comin' in on a wing and a prayer Comin' in on a wing and a prayer Though there's one motor gone We can still carry on Comin' in on a wing and a prayer' The phrase soon caught on and in 1944 a movie aptly titled On a Wing and a Prayer was released by Hollywood.
