The Fleshy Part Of The Thigh

Tony reads to Christopher from his dinosaur book. He tells Christopher that if a timeline of Earth's existence were put on the Empire State Building, human beings would only occupy a postage stamp at the very top. Christopher looks confused as Tony points out how insignificant we are in the grand scheme of things. Christopher skeptically says, "I don't feel that way." Awesome line delivery by Michael Imperioli, as usual.

Hesh and his daughter come by for a visit. They're only there for a moment before Pastor Bob walks in and sits down. Tony jokes that he's feeling better, and that it must be the prayer. Pastor Bob brought Tony a copy of Born Again by Charles Colson -- or as Tony calls him, "the Watergate guy." Pastor Bob agrees: "A ruthless, powerful man who thought he was above the law. He committed crimes and then went to prison. And then he found Jesus, and everything changed. Became a different man." Real subtle. Pastor Bob says that salvation isn't just about not going to hell; it's also about living a better life. He invites Tony to join his church. Tony agrees that it would be nice to have something to hold on to, and says he might take Pastor Bob up on that. There's an awkward silence, and then Pastor Bob picks up Tony's dinosaur book. He leafs through it and comments that some people would have you believe that dinosaurs existed millions of years ago, but that it's not true, because God created the Earth six thousand years ago, and dinosaurs and humans lived on the Earth at the same time. Tony asks, "What, like The Flintstones?" I think someone in the writers' room has been listening to Karl Pilkington. Tony asks about carbon dating, and Pastor Bob says that scientists have an agenda and calls evolution "Satan's plan to deny God." He concludes that evolution and salvation are mutually exclusive. Tony wonders what Schwinn would think about this, and Pastor Bob says that Schwinn isn't saved. I think Pastor Bob had Tony for a minute, but the whole dinosaur/unsaved Schwinn thing lost him. Pastor Bob says that they'll talk later, and leaves. Christopher asks, "What's he saying? There were dinosaurs back with Adam and Eve? No way! T-Rex in the Garden of Eden? Adam and Eve would be running all the time, scared shitless. But the Bible says it was Paradise." Now that is what Christopher should make a movie about! Adam and Eve being chased by dinosaurs. Hesh's daughter says that evangelicals are great friends of the Jews, because Israel is the Holy Land. Christopher looks confused, and Hesh just says, "You wait." I didn't get the ending of that scene, but I think I used up all my brain power coming up with the Bobby/Treach parallel. ["I thought Hesh was saying 'You wait' to his daughter, as if warning her that evangelicals would turn on Jews eventually." -- Wing Chun]
