Father Dedonde has asked Ned to help him alright. Help him into the confessional! Ned looks nervous as Father Dedonde confesses that he isn't used to giving confession! Ned suggests they just get it over with, but stops and sighs and says he can't do it. Not after a day like today. Father Dedonde asks if he would like to switch places. Ned would like to. They awkwardly step out of the Confessional and switch sides. Ned thought that he and his colleagues were getting along great and communicating. Turns out he is a big disappointment. He wasn't trying to screw up anyone's life, but he is. Father Dedonde prods him gently and Ned feels strangely comfortable. Comfortable enough to confess that his father deserted him at boarding school when he was nine. So he went to the school chapel everyday and prayed that he would come back. He never did. Father Dedonde suggests that he learned his abandoning ways from his father, but Ned denies it. He wouldn't know his father from Adam and he never bothered to track him down. There is no point digging around in the past. Father Dedonde disagrees: The boy abandoned in the chapel is the same man abandoning people now. You have to explore your past to find your future. As Ned contemplates that, Father Dedonde ends the confession session, pulling back the curtain and asking, "Now why don't you tell me who you really are?" Uh oh!
Ned is uncharitably dumped into a locked room with Emerson with a firm "Shame on you." While Mother Superior runs to go find Chuck, Father Dedonde goes to see Sister Olive who has been locked in the laundry room to find Jesus through hard work. Hard work makes me find Jesus too. It's amazing! Last time I found him behind the couch. I never clean back there! He could have been there for years. When the Father surprises Olive in the laundry room with a giant pile of laundry, Olive tries to enlist his help in stopping the murderess Mother Superior. He refuses to listen insisting that Mother Superior is a holy woman. Olive won't believe for a minute that the "menopausal maniac is a saint." She finally looks down at the pile of laundry in her hands, "Ew. How did one person get so much bat poo. It's like you had a brawl up in the bell tower!" The meaning of the words sinks in and Olive realizes that he pushed Sister Larue! As he tries to explain, Olive beans him on the head with a washboard and makes a run for it. Meanwhile Ned and Emerson are searching the room for keys. When they hear Olive's cries for help they decide to bust out. The kick out a stained glass window. That reminds me of my favorite Raymond Chandler quote, "She was so blonde she'd make a bishop kick out a stained glass window." Apropos, no? Okay, it's the only quote I know. I had to include it!
