    • Bill: From now on I'm going to listen to you Hank.

    • Reverend Stroup: Good morning. Before we begin, I'd like to share some thoughts on last week's church breakfast - normally I don't take it personally when people don't participate, but when you're sitting alone with 300 pancakes, you can't help but take stock...

  • NOTES (0)


    • Bill: I'm starting a class on the Biblical truths in Narnia.

      Bill is referring to the series of stories written by C.S. Lewis titled The Chronicles of Narnia. The introductory (though second written) book, The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe, was made into a movie in 2005. Some readers and viewers believe the story has references to the Bible, particularly the sacrificial death and subsequent resurrection of Jesus Christ. The movie took in $65.56 million in its opening weekend in theaters.

    • The title of this episode, The Passion of Dauterive is an allusion to the movie The Passion of the Christ which chronicles the last hours of the life of Jesus Christ.
