ice water I could borrow? David: Okay, okay! I’ll go, I’ll go! Renée: And I’d like to ask for the
special intercession of Saint Padre Pio, St. Catherine of Sienna, um, St. Joan of Arc, St. Theresa of Avila, St. Thérèse of Lisieux… and… uh, all the other saints and angels that I cannot remember right now. Uh, amen! *out of breath* Renée: You’re late! David: Well, at least I dry my hair!
