After he appeared on a WJM-TV talk show, Mary has been working with Catholic priest, Father Terrance Brian, to come up with a pitch to the station brass for a documentary on some of his work. Among their many discussions, Father Brian mentioned one of his colleagues who recently left the priesthood for a woman. Mary is in deep turmoil as she believes Father Brian may be contemplating doing the same as she believes he is falling in love with her. That turmoil increases when just after Mary learns that the documentary has been approved, Father Brian tells her to put the documentary on hold because he is contemplating leaving the priesthood. Lou, who Mary told about what she believes Father Brian is planning on doing for her, tries to advise Father Brian using veiled references. But Mary may be the only person who can convince him not to leave the priesthood for her... that is if that is the real reason. Written by Huggo

God Only Knows
24 February 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Ted interviews a priest (Ed Flanders) and after the show, Mary talks about an exchange program he is doing in his church. She thinks it would make a good documentary. They begin meeting and seem to have a nice time. He is funny and gregarious and she feels really comfortable with him. When the documentary is approved, he suddenly pulls out, and says he is thinking of leaving the priesthood. Because he mentioned a friend who left for a woman with whom he had fallen in love, Mary jumps to the conclusion that this is happening again. There are some hilarious moments. One is a story about a bicycle that Lou tells the priest. It involves a beer keg falling on a friend of his when he was twelve. The concluding scene is even funnier.
