Rabbi Lewis feels incredibly guilty that RevEric has been replaced. Or, he "can't get over the feeling that this has everything to do with [him]." How many characters on this show feel that they are the center of the universe? Rabbi Lewis clutches himself and doubles over, berating himself for letting the congregation out ten minutes early, just so they could be first in line at the new restaurant down the street. He should have been sure all of them "were drenched in the blood of the lamb." Which is, again, exactly? Rabbi Lewis isn't quite sure, and the imagery also makes him sick. RevEric says, "It's Jesus." Rabbi Lewis says, "Oh, I'm sorry." Heh. Sorry about the whole Jesus-being-crucified thing? Sure you are. Actually, Christians should thank the Jews for that. What drama! What great imagery! I mean, that was the whole high point of the Bible! It's not like The Odyssey, with sirens and testicle-eating dogs and giant hydras -- you know, something to look forward to in every chapter. The Odyssey beats the Bible cold for creative acts of violence. Then Eric ruins the whole thing by saying that the blood of the lamb is "a metaphor, and has nothing to do with" Rabbi Lewis. "Not that Jesus has nothing to do with you," since everyone knows Jesus was black -- I mean, "Jewish" -- but the associate pastor thing has nothing to do with Rabbi Lewis. Rabbi Lewis still can't believe it. RevEric is all, you should meet this guy. Or maybe not. Maybe we should go and spy on him. Spy on the new associate pastor? I can't think of anything more stupid. Well, the idea that Eric and Rabbi Lewis are like Starsky and Hutch is pretty stupid. Rabbi Lewis says the idea gives him heartburn. That, and he doesn't want to drive, since the person that drives is always the person that gets arrested. Okay, that's the stupidest thing.
