Flashback to Gloria telling Nappa that he is HIV-positive and will have to be transferred to the AIDS unit. In the present, Father Ray walks into Nappa's cell. Nappa offers him a cappuccino. Ray is surprised that Nappa has a cappuccino machine, but Nappa says that the only good thing about being on that unit is that the guards figure they're already dead, so they let them do whatever they want. Ray raises his eyebrows and agrees to a cappuccino. Nappa prepares the drink and admits that he always thought of Ray as "a hack in black." Ray knows that most of the prisoners think he's just a stoolie for the warden. Nappa says that in his neighborhood growing up, a boy could be a doctor, a lawyer, a priest, or...a businessman. The meaningful pause before "businessman" lets Ray know what Nappa is talking about. Nappa says that in order to become a "businessman," he had to "burn the saint." Ray fills in that he's talking about burning a picture of a saint to show that you renounce the church and pledge your loyalty to the Mob. Nappa says he didn't believe at first that he was HIV-positive, but he had his own doctor check the results, and it's true. Ray starts to give him the big speech about HIV not being a death sentence, but Nappa tells him to save it. Nappa says that, in his line of work, you're always ready to die, but you assume that it will be quick. A slow death allows time to reflect on your life, and now Nappa wants to make a confession of everything he's done in his life, and make a good act of contrition. Ray puts down his drink and puts on his vestments. Nappa asks for help getting started, and then gets on with the rite.
