    • (While Reverend Lovejoy preaches in church, Homer listens to a football game using a personal radio and headphones.)
      Football Announcer: Now they're lining up for this crucial kick. One final tick of the clock remains. If they win, it will cap an amazing comeback. But, it's a 49-yard field goal into the wind.
      Homer: (Quietly) Make it! Make it! Make it! Make it!
      Football Announcer: The kick is up.
      Homer: (Quietly) Oh, please, please, please, please!
      Football Announcer: It's got the distance. Holy Toledo, it's good!
      Homer: (Homer stands up and shouts.) It's good! It's good! It's good!
      (The entire congregation murmurs and stares at Homer.)
      Homer: It's...good to see you all in church.
