Priest:
Have you been able to find time for the survey in regard to the declining attendance in England's churches?



Michael Rimmer:
Yes, we have.



Priest:
We've tried everything, you know... cutthroat bingo, hallucinogens in the wafers, neon lights for the graveyards, chapels on wheels, fifty-fifty drawings after communion...



Michael Rimmer:

Priest:
What would that be?



Michael Rimmer:
God.



Priest:

Priest:
Interesting. Sort of an "Our Father who *might be* in heaven"...



Michael Rimmer:
Yes, very good.
