Camden's House - Kitchen

Eric: So, let's play the game again. Now what do you do when Daddy pulls his ear? And when Daddy scratches his nose?

Sam/David: A-chew!

Peter: I thought you guys went to church on Sunday?

Eric: Then why are you here?

Peter: My dad was supposed to take me out today, but he called and said he had to work. Hey guys, how about some t.v.?

Sam/David: Okay.

Eric: But just a second.

Peter: What? I didn't think you'd be here but, now that you are I can stay, can't I? My mom's out avoiding my dad all day.

Eric: Well the boys have colds.

Sam/David: A-chew.

Peter: Good trick. So why are you home?

Eric: I'm watching Sam and David.

Peter: Mrs. Camden really thinks they're sick?

Eric: Yeah.

Peter: I doubt it. Come on, I thought you were a minister. Why aren't you at church?

Eric: Why aren't you at church?

Peter: We don't go to church.

Eric: Well maybe you should.

Peter: Well maybe you should.

Glenoak Community Church

Lucy: Uh, what is she doing here?

Kevin: Worshipping.

Lucy: I doubt it.

Annie: Oh, welcome. Roxanne, come on.

Ruthie: This is going to be a long service even if it's a short sermon.

Roxanne: Hi. Good morning. I... I made a New Year's resolution to start going back to church.

Lucy: And I bet I know why. It's Chandler. She's not interested in anything spiritual believe me.

All: Praise in him through all blessings flow. Praise him in all creatures in here and below. Praise him all oh heavenly host. Praise Father, Son and Holy Ghost. Amen.

Roxanne: I was very moved by your sermon and if you have some time I would love to talk more with you about it.

Chandler: Uh, sure.

Roxanne: Not here. How about we go some place where we can talk privately?

Girl: I loved your sermon.

Chandler: Thank you.

Girl: I know I say that every week.

Chandler: It's always nice to hear.

Girl: Are you waiting on him?

Chandler: She is. She had questions about the sermon.

Girl: Oh... so do I.

Lucy: Church is not a pick-up joint. This is a place of worship, and it's Sunday. And Sunday is not the new Saturday night. It's supposed to be a day of rest.

Kevin: And yet you're not going to give Roxanne and Chandler a rest, are you?

Lucy: What is with those two? He's a new minister and people expect certain things from a man of God. And they do not expect you to... do what he's doing. It's so very... "Thornbirds".

Chandler: So, would you like to talk over lunch?

Roxanne: Lunch would be perfect.

Lucy: Did you know Roxanne was coming to church today?

Kevin: I knew it was her New Year's resolution. I didn't know it was this church. Oh, and by the way I thought it was your New Year's resolution to focus on the two of us and our relationship?

Lucy: I've been focused on it and where did it get me?

Kevin: So you're still angry you didn't get a ring for Christmas?

Lucy: No. No. You should take your time and give it to me whenever you're ready. I left something in my dad's office.

Kevin: Your pride? Leave them alone. It's none of your business. It's none of my business. She's been dancing around this guy since he got here. Let her see if she's even interested in him. She probably won't even like him.

Lucy: And if she does?

Kevin: Then she does.

Lucy: All I can tell you is, they better not get married before we do.

Camden's House - Kitchen

Annie: What's that I smell?

Eric: Lunch.

Annie: Well it doesn't smell like chicken. I... I left you a chicken to cook.

Eric: I decided to go with Beenie Weenies.

Annie: Why?

Eric: Well Beenie Weenies are a good football food. We're going to watch a game, a football game on t.v.

Annie: Well I thought you were going to cook a nice Sunday meal for everyone. And instead you open a couple of cans of Beenie Weenies?

David: There's plenty.

Sam: For everyone.

Peter: Delicious. Hi, Mrs. Camden. Games on.

Annie: You stayed home from church to watch t.v. with your little friend?

Eric: No, I stayed home because Sam and David have colds.

Sam/David: A-chew. ...A-chew.

Annie: You did not stay home to take care of sick twins, because the twins aren't sick. Now I'm not kidding. I want you back to work sooner rather than later.

Eric: Yeah, I'm thinking about it.

Annie: You've been thinking about it for a month. What's your excuse now?

Eric: Well I want to see if my novel gets published.

Annie: What novel?

Eric: I... I wrote a novel.

Annie: I don't care. I want you back to church next week. Come here. Come on.

Glenoak Community Church - Church Office

Chandler: So... where would you like to go for lunch?

Roxanne: Whenever I'm at the Promenade I'm so envious of all the couples I see there. Could we just go to the Promenade and pretend to be a couple? And walk around holding hands, look in shop windows, maybe see a movie? Just... just an ordinary day, like ordinary people.

Chandler: Sure. Although I'd never be so forward as to think you'd hold my hand on the first date. It's a little difficult to consider you just ordinary.

Roxanne: You don't sound like a minister.

Chandler: Yet, I am.

Roxanne: Well... well do you have any dietary restrictions?

Chandler: Uh... no. No, I don't. When... when you said it was your resolution to go back to church you...

Roxanne: Actually I've never been to church. Not never... just not as an adult.

Chandler: Well what church did you attend when you weren't an adult?

Roxanne: Okay you got me. It was never. Not even as a child.

Chandler: I see. So, they you actually do have questions about my sermon?

Roxanne: Not really. But I'll try and come up with some if it'll make you more comfortable.

Camden's House - Living Room

Lucy: I want to change and then we go can go for a walk.

Kevin: I want to watch football with your dad and Peter. Then we can go for a walk.

Lucy: Who are you?

Peter: A friend of Ruthie's, neighbor, sinner. I don't go to church either.

Lucy: You know Sunday has gone to... heck in a hand basket! Once upon a time it was day of rest and reflection. Now it's a day of... picking up guys at church and... watching sports!

Eric: Well don't forget worshipping the mall. That's also a favorite.

Peter: Hey Kevin, want something to drink? Soda?

Kevin: Sure. Lucy just wants to spy on Roxanne and Chandler. Roxanne came to the church this morning. She and Chandler left together.

Eric: I'm surprised it didn't happen before.

Kevin: I'd love to see Roxanne settle down with a nice guy, but I don't see Roxanne with a minister.

Annie: You know I'm married to a minister or I was. You're settling down with a minister. So if you can settle down with a minister, why can't Roxanne? Why can't Roxanne marry a minister? Might I read your novel?

Eric: I didn't think you were interested.

Annie: I changed my mind.

Eric: Oh yeah, it's in uh my desk drawer in my office. Annie is not in a good mood.

Kevin: I didn't mean to upset her. I have nothing against Roxanne and Chandler getting married. I just don't see her with him. Would you marry those two?

Eric: Uh I'm not in the marrying business anymore. And they're on their first date. They're not going to get married on their first date.

Kevin: They better not. My life will become a living...

Eric: You're not having a good day, are you? If the women of the house are not having a good day, no one is having a good day. It's a fact of life. They key is not to hook into the bad mood, and just wait it out. That's what women are really. Moods. A series of moods.

Annie: "Lover can you hear me"?

Eric: I think you're going to like it. It's now what you think.

Annie: You know if you've been hanging in... in your office writing smut, instead of your comeback sermon like I thought, I'm going to be really, really upset with you.

Eric: Okay. You think she'll like it?

Kevin: Maybe.

Eric: Do you like it?

Kevin: Yeah. But I think maybe you should tone it down, just a little.

Eric: Now why is that?

Kevin: I just think that when you do go back to church you might... the church might... some people might think it's... kind of... what Annie said.

Eric: Huh. I was using the physical relationship between the hero and heroine as a parallel to the spiritual relationship between man and God.

Kevin: I missed that.

Eric: Well it... it can be read on many different levels, but the subtext of the title, "Lover can you hear me"?, is can God hear us? You know as is prayer.

Kevin: I guess I read it the other way.

Eric: Oh. Oh, they're back.


Simon: Are you sure we should do this today?

Cecilia: It was our New Year's resolution. How much longer should we wait?

Simon: Well... well I say it's risky.

Cecilia: Not if we approach it like we planned. I mean we are ready to consider having sex and possibly in the near future. And hopefully when we do have sex it will be with their permission or at least their understanding.

Simon: And then just run this past me again. Why do we think they're going to understand?

Cecilia: Our grades are very good. We both work and have savings. We both have seen the school counselor. And remember it was the school counselor who told us to go to our parents.

Simon: We've read the pamphlets. We watched the movie. I mean we've talked to each other for endless hours about the pros and cons. I think we both agree that there are more pros than cons.

Cecilia: Yeah. And now we should be prepared for resistance. But I also feel that we're old enough to make the right decision. And that if we're honest our parents will respect our decision. Right?

Simon: Right. And... and ultimately the... the decision is up to us.

Cecilia: We don't want to sneak around or anything childish like that.

Simon: We don't want to wait for a prom or something ridiculous like that.

Cecilia: We're mature adults.

Simon: Mature adults who are in love with each other. So what's next?

Camden's House - Attic Room

Lucy: Would you like to take a Sunday afternoon walk?

Ruthie: I don't have time to spy on Roxanne and Chandler. I have eight hours of homework. Eight hours at least.

Lucy: Then why is that friend of yours in the living room?

Ruthie: What friend?

Lucy: Peter.

Ruthie: I don't know.

Lucy: And when did he move into the neighborhood?

Ruthie: I don't have time for an interrogation. I have homework.

Lucy: It's Sunday. Why didn't you do it on Saturday?

Ruthie: Because then Saturday wouldn't be Saturday. I went to the barn and mopped the stables and fed Sara's horse and exercised him. And then on the way home Mom and I stopped at the hardware store to get stuff I needed to make a volcano, because everyone has to make one. And then we had to get some pens so I could finish my art project. And then we had to pick up a book for my book report. And then I came home and ate and took a bath. And then it was Sunday. I can't take a walk. I can't. Sorry. Go away or help.


Roxanne: Do you have any kinds of salad? Okay, I'll have the chocolate shake, double cheeseburger and fries instead.

Chandler: I'll have the same.

Roxanne: I have to confess. I knew they didn't have the salad. I was just trying to impress you.

Chandler: Yeah, well I like a woman with a healthy appetite. And you don't have to impress me. I'm already impressed.

Roxanne: Really?

Chandler: Just relax. Be who you are.

Roxanne: And what if I'm a very bad woman who is having evil thoughts that I probably shouldn't have?

Chandler: Mmm... well nobody's perfect. Penny for your thoughts.

Roxanne: I was thinking the same thing I was thinking all during church.

Chandler: Oh right, that you want to hold hands. You have beautiful eyes.

Roxanne: Hold the onions.

Roxanne: Do you feel like you're living in a fish bowl?

Chandler: A bit. But truthfully the Reverend's the only one that's made a big deal about me being here. The church members really don't take me seriously. They're just politely waiting for Eric Camden to come back to work. I'm probably not held under the same scrutiny as Eric.

Roxanne: If someone from the church saw us together, would it be okay?

Chandler: I would hope so. I don't live my life based on the approval of others.

Roxanne: Right. You answer to a higher authority.

Chandler: So, what else do you want to know?

Roxanne: Well is there anything in the Ten Commandments about not having sex before marriage?

Chandler: Uh... not in the Ten Commandments. But uh... throughout history there have been laws or different customs regarding men and women not having sex before marriage. Which were and... and possibly sill are for the protection and the empowerment of women. Maybe we should talk about this when we get to know each other a little better. Uh... I don't get nervous talking about sex with people during counseling but... I'm having a tough time expressing myself. I... I'm not sure where the last question was going.

Roxanne: Maybe I wasn't specific enough. Do you believe in sex before marriage?

Chandler: Uh... Do I believe in sex before marriage? Uh... I believe it happens. Yes?

Roxanne: Come on. That's not what I'm asking.

Chandler: Uh... you know... I really am just like any other man.

Roxanne: You, are not like any other man I've ever met.

Camden's House - Eric and Annie's Room

Lucy: They can all feed themselves. Why don't we just go out and take a walk? It's Sunday. Remember when Sundays used to be about taking walks and spending time with loved ones?

Annie: The boys need a bath. Happy needs a bath. I need a bath.

Lucy: What does that have to do with Sunday?

Annie: Cleanliness is next to Godliness.

Lucy: Godliness is next to Godliness. And doesn't anyone take time to reflect on spiritual matters anymore?

Annie: Well I'd love to, but I haven't called my dad all week and I haven't talked to Miss Bink in months. I... I make my calls to people I care about on Sundays, while I fold the laundry and iron.

Lucy: Why can't all that wait till Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday?

Annie: Well unfortunately it carries over. I need a bath.

Lucy: What does that have to do with Sunday?

Annie: Cleanliness is next to Godliness.

Lucy: Godliness is next to Godliness. And doesn't anyone take time to reflect on spiritual matters anymore?

Annie: Well I'd love to, but I haven't called my dad all week and I haven't talked to Miss Bink in months. I... I make my calls to people I care about on Sundays, while I fold the laundry and iron.

Lucy: Why can't all that wait till Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday or Saturday?

Annie: Well unfortunately it carries over from Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. So if you're just trying to get me to go out for a walk with you so we can see if Chandler and Roxanne are together, I'm busy.

Lucy: Fine. I'll take a Sunday afternoon walk by myself.

Annie: Great. And maybe while you're alone and reflecting, you can go back to your New Year's resolution to focus on yourself and Kevin rather than obsessing about Chandler and Roxanne.

Camden's House - Kitchen

Ruthie: How can you be finished with all the homework?

Peter: I did it yesterday because I thought I had to go out with my dad today. I didn't have a Saturday. You don't have a Sunday. We're even.

Ruthie: Well maybe you can help me with my homework, then we can both have a Sunday.

Peter: What do you have left to do?

Ruthie: All of it.

Peter: All of it?

Ruthie: Yes. And if you want to know why I didn't do it earlier, I was busy earlier with earlier assignments.

Peter: I sympathize. But it just wouldn't be fair if I helped you.

Ruthie: Who wouldn't it be fair to?

Peter: It wouldn't be fair to all of us who do the work ourselves.

Ruthie: There aren't any kids who do all the work all by themselves. Tell the truth.

Peter: Honey, you need to learn how to stay up later at night. That's when I get most of my work done, midnight to one

Camden's House - Attic Room

Peter: Maybe I could just supervise building the volcano. Just to make sure you don't hurt yourself.

Ruthie: I'm not going to hurt myself. Forget it.

Peter: Come on. The sooner we get started, the sooner we get on to the art project.

Camden's House - Living Room

Lucy: Is the game over yet?

Kevin: It's half time.

Lucy: Please, not in front of everyone.

Eric: No, that's... that's perfectly okay. I'm, glad you're so in love. Physical attraction is an important part of relationships.

Lucy: What?

Kevin: It's from his book.

Lucy: What book?

Kevin: The book he wrote.

Lucy: Fiction or non-fiction?

Eric: Well it's a novel, more of a novella really.

Lucy: I'd like to read it.

Kevin: You're not old enough.

Lucy: What does that mean?

Eric: You really think it's that racy?

Kevin: Yes.

Eric: I had no idea.

Lucy: Would you like to take a half-time walk?

Kevin: Do you mean a walk around the block or a walk around The Promenade?

Lucy: The Promenade sounds interesting.

Kevin: It might be unless Roxanne and Chandler went somewhere else.

Lucy: You want to go to The Promenade or not?

Kevin: Or not. It's only half time.

Lucy: Fine.

Eric: Remember it's... it's okay for her to be in whatever mood she's in. After this one will surely come another and another one and another one after that. I've been married a long, long time. I know these things.

Outside Pharmacy

Cecilia: We can go in together.

Simon: No. I don't think it's a good idea to advertise. I... I'll just go in. You know it's not a big deal.

Cecilia: Okay. Well, I'll be right here.


Pharmacist: Simon Camden, how are you? I haven't seen anyone in your family in ages. Twins doing okay?

Simon: Uh, yeah they're fine. Thanks for asking.

Pharmacist: Your father's okay?

Simon: He's fine.

Pharmacist: So he's not being back at church isn't anything heart related?

Simon: Well it's kind of hear related actually. It... his heart's just not in the right place right now. This... this is what he says anyway.

Pharmacist: Uh... everybody goes through changes. Especially men your father's age. Probably just a phase. We all know he's not going to leave the ministry and start writing books.

Simon: Writing books?

Pharmacist: Yeah, he says he's writing a book.

Simon: My... my dad's writing a book?

Pharmacist: Yeah, it's fiction. It's a love story.

Simon: That should be interesting.

Pharmacist: From what he tells me, yes. Now, is there something I can help you with?

Simon: Oh, um... Yeah, I was just looking...

Pharmacist: Ah, the window display. Drew you in didn't it?

Simon: You know it's... it's really nice.

Pharmacist: I did it myself. I used to pay people to do that. And I tried it. Discovered my artistic talents. Now it's become a passion. Window designs. See that? Wait till you see what I do for President's Day. It'll be fabulous with all the kids home from school.

Cecilia: A nice day.

Pharmacist: Indeed.

Cecilia: Thank you.

Simon: You know I'm just gonna get some Juicy Fruit.

Pharmacist: Juicy Fruit it is.

Outside Pharmacy

Simon: He knew me.

Cecilia: I figured.

Simon: So who do you want to go to first?

Cecilia: My parents. They're definitely more likely to understand than your parents.

Simon: Six months ago I would have said so, but now I don't know.


Chandler: Is this more of what you had in mind?

Roxanne: Pretty much.

Chandler: Pretty much?

Roxanne: I never really thought I could get you told hold my hand.

Chandler: Yes you did. I never thought I'd get you to do that.

Roxanne: Yes you did. I really wish I had started to go to church earlier.

Chandler: Where do you live?

Roxanne: Oh you don't need to take to me home. I left my car at the church, remember?

Chandler: I remember. I was uh curious.

Roxanne: Why?

Chandler: I don't think kissing you twice in public would be a very good idea. They go to my church.

Roxanne: I remember.

Glenoak Community Church

Kevin: You look good up there.

Lucy: I feel good up here.

Kevin: Are you ready to go home?

Lucy: I'm just going to hang out for a bit. It's nice here. Peaceful. What happened to your football game?

Kevin: Buffalo is not having a good day.

Lucy: How'd you know I was here?

Kevin: I'm a police officer. I put it together. I drove by and saw your car.

Lucy: Did you try The Promenade first? I thought about going to The Promenade.

Kevin: But you weren't sure they were at The Promenade and you saw Roxanne's car is outside so you knew they'd be coming back here.

Lucy: Maybe.

Kevin: Tell me why you don't want them going out. I would think that you would be happy if Roxanne and Chandler did hook up. Unless of course you're interested in Chandler yourself.

Lucy: You don't believe that, do you?

Kevin: No. Talk to me.

Lucy: I don't think I've liked myself much since I met Roxanne. It doesn't feel good to be jealous and envious and out of control. I don't like who I am because I feel this way. It's just so not Christian of me.

Kevin: So feel some other way Luce. You can chose how you feel.

Lucy: I'd like to think I can, but I can't. And evidentially I'm getting worse. Now I don't like Chandler. At first I was sympathetic, but now... Now I... I'm jealous and... and envious of him too. He's up there where I always thought I would be. I always thought I would be speaking at the pulpit in this church. My dad's church. I've been going here all my life. But you know who's up there where I should be? Chandler. Or Dr. Chandler Hampton. I don't like that. I don't like him.

Chandler: Sorry to interrupt. I would have knocked if I thought that you were... Well, we should have knocked.

Lucy: How long have you been standing there?

Chandler: Oh we weren't standing. We just walked in uh somewhere midway through your speech.

Roxanne: I... I left my keys in that uh... thing... the thing that holds the books.

Camden's House - Eric and Annie's Room

Eric: Uh... the boys are taking a nap. Peter's upstairs helping Ruthie with her homework and Kevin's out hunting for Lucy so I... if you need me for anything?

Cecilia's House - Living Room

Cecilia: Run.

Glenoak Community Church

Roxanne: Run

Camden's House - Attic Room

Peter: Run.

Camden's House - Hallway

Annie: What was that?

Camden's House - Foyer

Ruthie: Who is it?

George: Cecilia's father.

George: I'm Cecilia's father and I'm looking for Simon!

Camden's House - Hallway

Annie: Cecilia's father? Okay...

Camden's House - Foyer

Eric: Eric Camden.

George: Do you know that your son is planning on having sex with my daughter at some point in the near future?

Eric: What?

Camden's House - Simon's Room

Annie: What?

Simon: Well it sounded better when it was just me and Cecilia talking about it.

Glenoak Community Church

Chandler: I never really believed in love at first sight. But...

Lucy: You aren't in love.

Kevin: Luce?

Lucy: This is all your fault. You brought home that...

Chandler: Surely you don't believe that Roxanne is whatever it is you were going to say.

Lucy: Yes I do.

Kevin: No she doesn't.

Chandler: And you think that you should be up there preaching?

Lucy: I can do just as good a job as you're doing, Hot Pants.

Chandler: Oh well, be my guest. Tonight's service is at seven.

Lucy: What service?

Chandler: Your father asked that we resume Sunday evening services. See you tonight, behind the pulpit.

Lucy: Seven? Service at seven? I'm an idiot.

Kevin: But we knew that.

Lucy: You should have just gone with me to The Promenade and none of this ever would have happened. They wouldn't be in love and I wouldn't be delivering a sermon that I've got to come up with between now and 7:00 tonight in front of my father's congregation!

Kevin: No. But you'd still be crazy.

Lucy: Uh...

Camden's House - Living Room

Eric: At least they asked.

Annie: Yes, at least they asked.

Cecilia: We weren't exactly asking.

Annie: But you were coming to us to discuss it.

Simon: Yes, we were doing that.

George: Did I mention you're fired?

Simon: I just assumed.

Eric: May I say that we like your daughter.

George: Well I don't like your son and I don't ever want him out with my daughter again.

Cecilia: Dad, this isn't all his fault. This is my fault too.

George: You're fired too.

Eric: Look, Simon, Cecilia, I think maybe the best way to handle this would have been for each of you to go to your respective parents alone, and discuss this. Cause you know I really don't know Cecilia well enough to know if she's ready for that kind of relationship. But I do know my son well enough to know that he isn't ready for that kind of relationship.

Simon: And what if I disagreed with the two of you? What if Cecilia disagreed with the two of them?

George: Then I still would have come over here intending to clobber you and you still could not continue seeing my daughter.

Simon: I knew we should have waited for your mother.

Eric: What I was going to say is that even though it might not have been the ideal way to handle this, now that we've all gotten together... maybe we can just discuss it openly and honestly?

George: If you think that we're going to sit here and discuss my daughter's sex life, which she isn't going to have until she's married, you're crazy. I want you to keep your son away from her. Oh-ohhh, preacher's son. I should have known.

Eric: Hey pal.

Annie: You just had a double by-pass.

Lucy: Anyone got any ideas for a sermon?

Camden's House - Kitchen

Annie: You're telling me that you're not going to hear Lucy speak for the first time in your church?

Eric: Yeah, I'm afraid I might be coming down with the boys' cold.

Sam/David: A-chew.

Annie: You can't do this. You can't. I knew you. Your daughter means more than your ego.

Eric: I'm just not ready.

Annie: Does that mean when you are ready you'll go back?

Eric: Didn't you like my book?

Annie: I loved your book. I did. It was a good story. I particularly liked the parallel between man and woman and God and mankind.

Eric: You got that?

Annie: Yeah, I got that. And uh a lot more. My point is that you need to quit playing around and go back to work. Can't you just ease your way back into it by going to the Sunday night service?

Eric: I'm surprised there's enough interest in the Sunday night service to continue them.

Annie: It was your idea. You told Lou way back in September that you wanted to start the Sunday night service the first of the year. It's the first of the year.

Eric: I did that?

Annie: Are you coming?

Sam: We want to go.

David: I want to see Lucy be the preacher.

Camden's House - Attic Room

Peter: I'll help you when we get back from church.

Ruthie: I think you've helped me enough.

Peter: Look, I'm really sorry but, I think we both learned a lesson here.

Ruthie: What lesson?

Peter: Sundays are for church.

Camden's House - Hallway

Peter: Hear from Cecilia?

Simon: Who are you?

Peter: Peter.

Ruthie: He lives down the street.

Simon: Well you two just stay out of my business.

Ruthie: I don't even want to know.

Peter: Me neither.

Simon: Well that's good cause you're not going to know.

Ruthie: Just the same I don't think an extra church service will hurt you.

Glenoak Community Church

Lucy: I miss my dad speaking from this pulpit, as I'm sure all of you do. Not that we aren't thrilled to have Dr. Hampton here with us.

Chandler: Please, call me Chandler.

Lucy: Chandler. Anyway it was my dad's wish that we return to the Sunday night services after the first of the year. And it was Chandler's wish that I take the first service, being my dad's daughter and a divinity student myself. So the text of the sermon is quite short. Genesis 2 second and third verse. "And he rested on the seventh day from all of his work he had made. And God blessed the seventh day and sanctified it". It wasn't that long ago that Sunday was the day we all rested. We treated Sunday as a special day. When we came to Sunday school and church. And we rested when we went home. We talked. We read. We spent time to ourselves meditating or praying or just reflecting on our lives, our purpose, our behavior. Or even just the events of the week that just passed. It wasn't that long ago that businesses weren't open on Sunday. If you got in your car it was to visit your friends and family. Just to let them know that you care, or maybe check out their situation, or just help out. At the end of the day on what used to be Sunday, people were rested and looked forward to the following week. Sometimes with determination to be kinder, to do better, to work harder. What happened to Sunday? Our parents grew up with Sundays off. That means they had fifty-two days a year to rest. And those were the years when there was a summer, a real summer. Three months off from school for children to play. A break from the nine months long school year when the routine was different. The energy was different. The air was sweeter. The nights longer. And children stayed up late because they could sleep in the next morning. It was when children wore themselves out with the fun of summer and longed for school again. We don't really have those summers anymore. We don't have those Sundays anymore either. Children and parents and families and adults have fifty-two more days a year to do stuff. Sunday is the day we catch up on our work and our homework because there's so much work and so much homework there's no time to do it. We work seven days a week, or at least are on the go seven days a week, fifty-two weeks a year. And yet we wonder why children grow up so fast. Why people need drugs to relax? Why they need human contact even if it's the form of inappropriate unfulfilling sex? Could it be because we've lost fifty-two opportunities a year to rest and reflect and or visit our friends and loved ones? That's five hundred and twenty days in ten years. That's one thousand and forty days in twenty years. I've lost a thousand and forty plus days in my life because Sunday is no longer Sunday. And I'm stressed and tired and irritable and I feel as if I have no time to do the things I need to do. I never have the time to do the things I want to do. And I'm just turning twenty-one. How am I going to feel when I'm my dad's age? How are all of us going to feel when I'm my dad's age? Yet I fear we've lost our Sundays forever unless we make an effort to reclaim them. And in losing our Sundays we're losing a lot more. We're losing ourselves. It's just something I was thinking about. God bless you for hearing my thoughts and being with me.

Chandler: It's a beautiful message. Nice job.

Lucy: I'm sorry about everything and... thank you.

Chandler: Now, may the Lord watch me and thee while we are absent from one another.

Eric: Okay, you got me on my knees. I need help.

David: Lucy is a good preacher.

Sam: I want my Sundays.

Simon: What?

Annie: Nothing.

Simon: I'm going over to Cecilia's after this and talk to her dad even if he kills me. I don't know what I was thinking.

Annie: I do. I'd give it another day or two, maybe even a week or two.

Simon: Maybe I should.

Kevin: You were really good.

Lucy: Thank you. Thanks for putting up with me. I love you.

Chandler: Well I was quite impressed with Lucy.

Roxanne: You were impressed but you weren't surprised.

Chandler: No. The only surprise of the day was you.
