Chief Gray Cloud: [in reference to Avram's god] What does he do?

Avram: He... He can do anything!

Chief Gray Cloud: Then why can't he make rain?

Avram: Because he doesn't make rain. He gives us strength when we're suffering. He gives us compassion when all that we feel is hatred. He gives us courage when we're searching around blindly like little mice in the darkness... but He does not make rain!

[Thunder and lightning begin, followed by a downpour]

Avram: Of course... sometimes, just like that, he'll change His mind.

Tommy: But you're a good man!

Avram: I am a good man. I am. But I'm not a Rabbi.

Tommy: Don't say that!

Avram: Tommy, I'm not a Rabbi.

Tommy: Don't SAY that!

[Throws food at Avram in anger]

Tommy: You are a Rabbi. I'm a bank robber. I'm a card player and a whoremonger. That's what I am. YOU are a Rabbi. You can fall in the mud, you can slip on your ass, you can travel in the wrong direction. But even on your ass, even in the mud, even if you go in the wrong direction for a little while, you're STILL a Rabbi! THAT'S WHAT YOU ARE!
