all actors react to VOG

 

Morgan:      You scare me when you do that!

 

VOG:        Sometimes maybe that’s a good thing.

 

Payton:       But God, if you remember I prayed about it and I said I forgave Jamie, and I even asked you to forgive him too.

 

VOG:        Quick instruction for you Payton . . .  when you pray don’t give me instructions, just report for duty.

 

Payton:       Sorry God.

 

VOG:        Yes Payton, I sense you are indeed sorry. . . Now back to this issue with Jamie.

 

Payton:       That’s just a matter between me and Jamie.

 

VOG:        Actually Payton, that’s where you are wrong. If you talked with Jamie about this . . . which I strongly suggest you do . .  you would actually find out Jamie has no idea what you are talking about.

 

Payton:       Well isn't that just great! . . Here I follow your instructions and I forgive Jamie for his trespasses or debts or whatever against me . .  and he doesn’t even remember.
