Main Characters in this Episode
Rev. Ephram Samuels: I can not tell you of God's mind; He shares with me at his pleasure... and on the subject of Silas, He is silent.
King Silas Benjamin: ...I did right by him. This land was once a place where men of faith feared to walk the streets, and prayers came in whispers. *I* made it safe for men like you.
Rev. Ephram Samuels: So God owes *you*?
King Silas Benjamin: If not him, you. Tell me what's the fair trade.
Rev. Ephram Samuels: One offers sacrifice according to the offense; only you can name that.
King Silas Benjamin: Sacrifice? Has He not moved past that yet?... Give him my best; tell him I've given too much.
Rev. Ephram Samuels: We make amends, Silas - the pure, the unblemished - for our sin.
King Silas Benjamin: He wants what I will not let him take. I will not leave this on the altar, and live...
Rev. Ephram Samuels: Then you find another lamb.
King Silas Benjamin: No... not even God is that cruel.
David Shepherd: So they... give you things.
Jack Benjamin: Whatever they have. The waters part, and dignity crumbles; I have a room in my apartment just for that.
